A Marathon of Posts...

Well I am finally posting about the last few weeks!
[I don't have the reception pictures yet, but those are coming soon]

The Wedding Day

Our wedding was perfect!
I am so glad that we were able to go to Manti to be sealed.
It was beautiful!

This is Matt on our drive down!
Once we could see the temple, both of us started crying!
It really is so beautiful and we feel so blessed to have been able to go there!
Once the sealing was over, and the hours of pictures......
We finally set off for Park City!

We LOVED staying at the Stein Erickson, It was so fancy!
I hope we can afford to go back again soon!

The next day we had our reception and although it was a stressful day getting it all ready, everything turned out perfectly!
[pictures coming soon]
Thank you everyone that came!!

Welcome to South Carolina!

Four days after our wedding, we left on our trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina!
It was sooooo HOT! But so much fun!

We spent every day at the beach! It was so fun to just hang out and enjoy the sun!
ha ha we wanted to be the cheesy honeymoon couple on our bikes we rented!
Adorable right?

Besides the Beach, we did lots of other fun things like,
Shark Fishing, Crab Fishing, Going to the top of a lighthouse, and lots of eating! :)
It was a great time!
Thanks for the fun trip Deb and Jeff!

Matthew's 23rd Birthday

Yesterday was Matt's birthday and it turned out to be such a great day!
It actually started the night before,
when Matt couldn't wait to open his presents....
I let him open one.... bad idea.

The next morning (his actual birthday) He couldn't wait to open his other two gifts,
so he woke up at 6:45 am and opened them before I went to work!

This was his favorite gift by far....
A new iphone 4!
I couldn't actually buy it yet, because his other phone would have shut off, and he would have known!
So I made a little card and put the money for the phone inside!
We went and picked it up today, and he hasn't stopped looking at it!

After both of us got off work, we had some friends come over to celebrate the event before the hockey game!
Thanks friends for coming!
Emily and Colton, we sure missed you!

Emily made the adorable cake!
We have had a great last couple of weeks,
August has been a great month for us!

sorry this post is so long, but I hope you enjoyed it! :)

Today is my sweet husbands birthday!
Happy Birthday Matthew Shawn!
I have so many things to blog about, and this is another one to add to the list!
He already opened his presents this morning
(6:45 am to be exact) he couldn't wait.
and I have the most adorable pictures of him doing it! :)
I married my best friend, and have the best husband anyone could ever ask for!
I hope your day is great Matt! I love you sooooo much!!
I can't wait to celebrate later! :)
[ps. Go Beavers!]

01 August 2010


I have really needed to blog the last week because so many great things have happened!
First of all....
I have had a goal the last few months that as I was preparing to go to the temple, I wanted to read the whole Book of Mormon start to finish, without stopping, before I was endowed.
I finished reading last sunday, and went to the temple for my endowment on
Wednesday, July 28th.
Wednesday was a great day! I had so many family members that were able to come, and close friends who came to support me. What a great blessing it was for me to go! I can't wait to go again soon!

This all means that I am that much closer to going here...
Only 11 more days until I get to be sealed to my sweet Matthew!
I can not wait!

I am so lucky that I am getting married to someone who can take me to the temple and has such a great testimony! Matt teaches me so much every day, and Loves me for exactly the person that I am! I love him so much and am so excited to start our lives together!
I couldn't be happier that today is the first of August! I have been waiting for this month to come for ever!! :)
