Day 5

I'm thankful for my roots where and how I grew up. I went to Star Valley this weekend for Taralyn's bridal shower with Crystal. Since we were there and I grew up 20 miles outside of Afton I decided to drive Crystal up to Freedom to show her my family farm.

I'm glad of the way I grew up, on the family farm learning hard work from my dad and how to run a home from my mother.

Some fun things while we were in Afton was that Tara's family gave us a private viewing of the new Footloose movie. Not kidding... they have two theaters... we were in the bigger one... and it was me, Crystal, and Tara... it was fantastic. Then there was the bridal shower where we made Tara blush by giving her cute and inappropriate for little kids lingerie.

Before we headed home we stopped at Burger King and Taco Time for dinner. While at Burger King we asked for fry sauce... found out it was discontinued... but they had a new 'Zesty' sauce that was fry sauce with horseradish sauce... the lady said 'Its like fry sauce on crack'... so if any of you are looking for fry sauce laced with crack... Burger King is the place to go! 

Day 4

Today I am thankful for the last 2 years and where they have brought me, and what I have learned.

So much stuff happens in life and we go through it without a second thought. But if we do this we learn nothing. We have trials to teach us lessons, to learn and bring us closer to God. Struggling is hard while we are in that moment... but it makes us realize just how good we can have it and we cherish those moments so much better.

Day 3

My Sister in Law Leza and my nephew Brody!

This is where my grateful heart is today! I'm so glad they are part of my family. Leza joined our family 3 years ago this month. She married my older brother Andy. This past May she had she had my nephew Brody. The sad part is that in July they moved to Vernal... 4hours away. Its sad that we don't take advantage of family when they are around and only realize that we do this once they've moved away. Family is so important, they are the ones we will be with through the eternities and we need to make those relationships into ones that we want to be with forever.

I got lucky today and Leza was in town with Brody since her younger brother flew home from his mission. Leza text me a few days ago wanting a haircut while she was here. Of course I said I would do this for her... as long as she brought Brody over with her. I hadn't seen them since last time they visited which was back in September. The family went to Vernal to visit them over fall break but sadly being manager at my job I had to work that weekend since my assistant manager got married and for some reason thought that was more important reason to get the days off... lol I love you Nicole.

Know that I love and appreciate you Leza!

Day 2

Day 2: Today I am grateful for my hair. This may sound strange to you but to me it means a lot.

Of course there are days that I certainly hate my hair. Sadly I'm very OCD about my hair and if it isn't perfect I tend to fix it until it is.

Saying this.... The past couple days were so much fun, but drove me crazy with rocking the 70's/80's fro (look at Monday's post). My whole life I've had pretty straight hair, the shorter it is it tends to get a little wavy but not in a cute or flattering way so I end up using my CHI on it. Yet when its long I can usually just blow dry and go.

I love it!

Month of Gratitude

Its a sad that that usually only happens around this time of the year... but I guess we could all be thankful that it does happen.

I saw on facebook that it is a month of gratitude, that everyday we should comment on what we are grateful for. I've heard that by doing this you become more aware of the little things. You notice things that make your day rather than ruin it. You see the way people touch your life, and you try to do things to others to make their lives a little brighter. Its a time where we all strive to be a little more Christlike.

I know I've had this blog for 2 years and I'm usually horrible about updating it... but hopefully with a goal like this I will post some thing at least once a day.

So DAY 1: I'm grateful for this Month of Gratitude so I can become more like and closer to my Savior and Father in Heaven.
