Emergency Room.

In case you don't already know.. My husband is a very good soccer player.
On Tuesday night he played on a mens team and he did great!

So when we both got the opportunity to play last night, we were so excited!
its been months since we played coed together, and i've really missed it!

So after getting to the game through the blizzard...
I got in and played for about ten minutes...
then I got hit really hard.. and experienced the worst pain of my life!
I am not even exaggerating! I have never cried so much because of an injury.. and i've been hurt a lot!
Matt was right there after I hit the ground and carried me off the field.
after waiting out that game, and the next game our team played..
we made our way to the ER.

Thankfully my ankle isn't broken! but unfortunately... I can't walk!
I have a really bad sprain & re-injured the tendons that have already been torn... twice.

Having done this more than once... I thought I knew what to expect...
but i've never been so swollen, and in so much pain!

I have to go see an Orthopedic surgeon to get an MRI to see what the full damage really is.
thank heavens for my amazing health insurance!!
It ended up being a great night! ha I sat out and Matt play a great couple of games!!
seriously he is so good. he even scored a goal for me! :)

Hopefully I heal quickly so Matt can stop carrying me everywhere, and I can ditch the crutches!

If anyone feels like sitting on the couch with me.. or taking care of my puppy,
Come on over! :)

Matt has been so great at taking care of me, he is so worried about how I am feeling, and is doing everything for me!
I am so lucky to have him!

First Shots

Maeby already knows what the Vet is,
& she already knows she doesn't like it!

From the minute we walked in, before she even saw the doctor she was shaking & crying.

Maeby got her first shots today, and even though she was scared
she did great! 

Once we got back home, she was worn out! 

She never falls asleep on my lap, unless we're driving! 

That is how worn out she really is!! 

Poor puppy!

Merry Christmas

We had such a great Christmas
& hope all of you did too!!

This year is coming to a close soon..
although I faced some of my biggest trials,
and continue to deal with them,
2010 holds the greatest memories, experiences
and joys I could possibly think of!

I am excited to see what 2011 has in store for us!

On December 20, 1950, 
My handsome dad was born! 

This last monday we celebrated his 
60th Birthday!! 

We had a surprise party for him at my parents. 
it was a lot of preparation, and running around that day, 
but it was so worth it!! 
He loved it! 

Happy Birthday Dad!! 
I love you so much!!

Maeby Olsen

Well guys, we did it! 
We went and picked up our new pup on Thursday. 
She is very cute (& kinda naughty)
Matt keeps telling me, 
"She's just a puppy" 
I need to learn some patience.. 

 Even though she wants to chew on everything..
We love her! 

She is an Australian Shepherd and hopefully
 she lives up to their standard..
obedient, smart, all around good dogs..
I can't wait to take her running with me,
 and play frisbee! 
its just getting to that point that might be a little rough. ha

We love her and hope she loves us too! 
Matt is in doggy heaven.. he has wanted a dog more than anyone i've ever met!

Baby > Puppy?

Well Matt and I wont be having a baby anytime soon.
{we will be very happy when it is time though}
give us a few years.. or five.

Until then.. we NEED a puppy.
We really wanted this,

and could of had him for free, last night..
but pitbulls aren't allowed in our house.
I'm writing a letter about discrimination to our property managment.

So I guess we'll settle for this sweet face!
{he isn't even close to settling}
seriously though, this is my top choice..
I can't get enough of those wrinkles and

Now I just need $1500 to buy him.
Any donations??

Kaysville City

Matt and I have loved living in Kaysville!
Our neighborhood is so cute, and everyone
is very nice!
It is perfect for us!

One of the holiday traditions in Kaysville is
the lighting of the town, and the light parade!
This event took place last night!

They have a band playing, free hot chocolate,
and lots of people!

Everybody counts down from 10, and then
Ruth lights the town!
I have no idea who ruth is. 
All the trees light up and everyone cheers, 
then we line up along the road for the 
light parade! 
my camera died, so this is from my phone.. kinda crappy
they passed out candy and people were singing christmas songs!
It was so much fun!

After this parade we all went back to Matt's sisters
house for some home made chili and corn bread!
mmmmm :)

It was a great night!
Happy Holidays!

26 November 2010

Thanksgiving Week!

I love Thanksgiving!! 
It is probably my favorite Holiday! 
This year was especially fun because it was mine
and Matt's first thanksgiving together! 

I woke up early Thanksgiving day, and made
my yams and fruit salad! Then we went to the movie 
with my family, then over to Matt's family's for dinner! 
This year everyone either had to dress as an 
Indian or Pilgrim! 
we were indians :)
after our eventful day, I made my first 
adventure out to do some 
black friday shopping! 
It was so fun! We started getting in line at 10pm, 
and I got home around 5:30am! 
I finally went to bed around 6:30, then got up at 8 to 
go to breakfast before our next adventure! 
I've had a head ache all day
We went to cut down our very first 
Christmas Tree!! 
It is perfect for us! 

After that we went to my mothers to get our 
Christmas Lights, and while we were there we sat down 
to watch a movie with the grandkids! 
Courtney is obsessed with "Map" (matt) and
 she loved snuggling with him! 
So cute!! 

After all these events took place, we finally headed home to
 decorate the tree! 
I can't wait for our first Christmas together! :) 
Such a great week! :) 

in case you are wondering.. I still haven't slept. yikes. 

22 November 2010

How does this happen?

This is the kind of student I once was...

Then I turned into this..

And I'm affraid It is going to get worse.

How do you supposed I get back to where I used to be? I used to love school,
and now I'd rather do anything else BUT school.

19 days left of this horrible semester...
hopefully I get everything done that I need to.

19 November 2010


I have been waiting for this all year!
Matt and I finally get to go to a BYU football game this weekend!
I can't believe this is the first one of the season for me!
Matt is a little worried about the rain or snow that may be occuring during game time...
But I dont mind at all.. I'll just hang out by the concessions stand and stay dry.
I make multiple trips there anyway during the game!

either way, I can't wait

Emily and Colton are hopefully attending the same game, so we can meet up for a
cougar tail and hot dog!

15 November 2010

Just a few things...

to look forward to. 

I have been wanting to update the last few days, 
but I don't have time to upload my pictures from my camera,
 and to be honest, not that much has been going on! 

 maybe in the next month, my life will finally be exciting again! 

The semester ends in just a few weeks, and if I can survive until then, 
life will be 
g r e a t. 

Another thing to be excited about... 
since I work for the school district, 
I get 3 days off for Thanksgiving.... and
drum roll please
two full weeks off for Christmas!! 
thank heavens.

I can't wait to go sledding, go to temple square, 
watch christmas movies, 
participate in the Kaysville "light parade" (Ruth, light the town!)
decorate our christmas tree, I already have all my tree ornaments, thank you Jenn
and last but not least.. 
finally get to spend time with my family and Matt 
and not be worried about the homework I'm not doing! 

So for all of you haters towards this time of year...
 I can't f r e a k i n g wait!!!!!!!!!

Bring on the snow, frosted windows, and bundling up... 
because all of that means I finally get a break!!

ps. the song on my blog is dedicated to my dear husband.
he requested that i put it on.. 
so while you listen to the craziness
dance in your chair or something! might as well! :)

11 November 2010

Matthew Shawn & Emily Dawn

how convinient that their names rhyme... :)

The only two people that read this.

If I make this private, you two will be the only ones I need to invite. That makes it easy.


Love you both

g r a t e f u l

I have just been thinking lately about my life....
and how great it is.

I couldn't ask for anything better, and I wish everyone could be as happy as I am.

Even though we all have trials and we all experience hard times,
we need to always remember what we do have.

So I am grateful, and thankful for everything I  have been given.

have a great day!

p.s. I love Matt so much, and in the last week
I have been reminded of how
lucky I am to have him, all to myself!

03 November 2010

It's the most wonderful time..

This really is the best time of the year!
as much as I love summer, the hot sun, swimming, and vacations...
I can not get enough of the holidays! :)

First we have,
I love everything about this celebration! I love going to the movie with my family, the smell of dinner cooking, eating until we could puke, and just being all together! This year will be a little different though because we now get to split holidays! So Thanksgiving this year will be spent with the Olsen's! Then I am sure later in the day we will make it over to my family's for a visit! Matt thinks this is a little strange of me.. but probably my very most favorite thing about this day is.....

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
I have watched this event every year for as long as I can remember!
 I hope one day I can actually go to it!!

Next there is

Who doesn't love this holiday! Seriously. I can't wait to put up my very own christmas tree and participate in all the festivities! Christmas will be spent with my family, and it is never a disappointment! :) Brittany is really excited for the slumber party! ha. We always watch the Muppet Christmas Carol (which in my opinion is the best christmas movie ever made) and have lots of parties! It will be so fun, I can hardley wait!!

Then to finish it all off, we get to celebrate,
New Years Eve:

This holiday is pretty fun, and hopefully this year it will be even more fun! Matt and I really want to go to California over New Years, and we are doing just about everything we can to get there! :) It's crazy to think that 2011 is just around the corner, but I couldn't be more excited! I am sure next year will be full of lots of new adventures and I can't wait to see what will happen in our little lives!

So, Happy Holiday's Everyone!
I hope you are all as excited as I am! :)

Happy Birthday Debbie!! 
Thank you for everything you do for us! 
I love you! 

21 October 2010

oh brittany.

My dear sister Brittany tagged me in this, and normally it would probably take me a few days or weeks to actually do it, but seems how I am at work, waiting for my boss to come back from who knows where.... I'm doing it!

1. Who is your hero? Why?
I dont think I could pick just one... My whole family. Each person for different reasons, but being the youngest of six has given me a lot to look up to! I'm grateful for my family and for everything they do for me!  

2. When you were a little tike, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A Doctor! I dont know why, but I always wanted to be a doctor! ha now the thought of that much school makes me ill!
3. What is one goal you currently have?
To just get through school! It has been a rough semester and there has been so much going on... my only goal at this point is just to get through it!
4. What life achievement are you most proud of?
Ummm... Going through the temple! And being sealed to my sweet Matthew!
5. If you could do anything with your spare time, what would you do?
Craft!! Make lots of cute things for my house, and actually get it decorated! No one would ever know I have a degree in Interior Design... y i k e s
6. What is your best physical feature?
I'm not so sure that I have one... but my grandma used to tell me I had really pretty dark brown eyes! I also like my dimples.. although I think it exentuates my baby cheeks that I never got rid of.
7. What is the most important thing your parents ever taught you by example?
To Pray. Always, and for everything!!
8. Why do you think the church is true?
Just like Brittany said... I know it is true. I have had the spirit tell me so, I have felt it and witnessed it. I think the real question is.. how could it not be true?
1) What is one food you hated as a child, but as an adult you now enjoy?
Mmm... I still am pretty picky...  but I did used to hate Wendy's when I was little.. I would actually cry when we would go there instead of McDonalds!
2) Favorite memory growing up?
I used to have a little red fire hydrant sprinkler thing that we would stick under the tramp and then jump on it. It was pretty awesome.

3) Craziest thing you've ever done and/or seen happen?
I one saw a guy die, right in front of my own eyes, it was pretty sad. As for things I've done.... Me and Emily tried to steal the car once.. it got stuck in the gutter. haha
4) If you could choose any super power, what would it be?
Same as Britt, Time! I could sleep until I wanted to get up, and I'd never be late for anything, also school would be way easier! :)

5) Favorite book, and why?

I dont read much.. but The Bearnstein Bears: The Messy Room. haha I used to read it a lot when I was little, and I always wanted to clean my room just like Brother and Sister Bear!
 6) Why did you choose the major/degree/career that you did?
My first one, Interior Design, I chose because I love being creative! I also love design of any kind! It was a lot of fun. Current one, Elementary Education, I chose because I l o v e little kids, and I really like teaching them new things!
7) Who would win in a fight: a taco or a grilled cheese sandwich?

"Well, I think the grilled cheese sandwich - in a fair fight. But if it was prison rules, I'd put my money on the taco.
"8) Paper or plastic?
I'm not sure.. which ever is better for the earth?
Well there ya have it. Um.. yeah.
t h e e n d.

Catching up..

There has been so many events that have gone on the last few weeks, that I feel like I need to blog about! So since i'm a little behind, and since I'm pretty sure no one really even cares about reading my blog, I'll shorten each event to a few pictures and desicriptions. 

At the first of this month, Gram (Matt's grandma, Lois) celebrated her 80th Birthday! 
When Gram walked in, she was so amazed with everything everyone had done, she was so emotional and grateful! It was very sweet! 
We all split up the jobs, so that the event could be perfect! I was in charge of making flower arrangements and cupcakes. There we so many treats, pictures, memories and lots of friends that came! 
It was such a great event, and we all love Gram so much!

This last weekend was UEA, and because I work for the School District, I had a lovely,
 much needed, 4 day weekend! 
Matt was nice enough to take Friday off of work so he could play with me!
 So Friday morning we went and picked up Belle, and met the rest of the grandkids at the
Zoo for a fun day together! 
The kids loved all the animals, dippin dots, and the carousal!
 We sure love the zoo!!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
After our great day at the zoo we took Belle home and had a sleepover! It was so much fun! She is very cute and has quite the personality! Something about Belle is she l o v e s her dolls! She likes to take the dish towel and wrap her doll up in it like a blankey! She kept taking the towel off the oven, and when I took it away to hang back up she got a little mad at me! haha

Come back and stay with us soon Belle! We love you!

On Saturday we went to Black Island Farms with Emily and Colton! It was so much fun! We love getting to play with them! Matt and Colton are secretly in love with each other, and me and Emily have been SB's forever! Thanks for the fun event!!
