Oh the Places You'll Go. . .

Well I finally did it! Dec. 9, 2011 I graduated! I feel like I have been in school FOREVER! And although it has not fully hit me yet, I am so happy to be done with school! Now I just need to find a job so I do not feel like a bum and become depressed at home everyday!

This is the group of people that I have been with for the past two years! I truly feel blessed for having such a small class and really having the chance to get to know all of them so well!

This is Paul, Jaimie, and Mallorey. These three are by far my best friends! I honestly do not know how I got so lucky to find them in my major and become as close with them as I did! These three are honestly beyond smarter than me and I know if it wasn't for them I may not have graduated! Thanks for sticking with me guys!

I had a great experience in school and at Weber State. I am grateful for my education and I hope I can continue to learn! This post is already becoming cheesy but one more thing I am grateful for is the Family Studies Major. Yes I have no idea what I am going to do with it at the time being, but I feel blessed that I have honestly loved my classes the past two years. I have learned so much about families, marriage, being a mom, and all relationships, and I know that I will always use what I have learned!

I am Bound and Determined to Get Caught Up!

I want to get caught up so I don't have a huge post about Christmas activities! This year we spent Thanksgiving with Tom's family and it was great! Last year we tried to do everything with both our families and it was a little much, we felt like we were driving more than we were with our families. So we decided whatever family we spent Thanksgiving with we would do all the activities with. I was sad to miss Black Friday and all of the events that go with it but it was a great weekend! We went up to Bear Lake and cut down a tree! We had to cross a raging river that almost got the best of West but it was worth it! Jake brought up his snow mobile and we had a lot of fun riding it around! Overall it was such a great weekend, I can never get enough of Bear Lake!

I seriously love these two! A major perk to marrying Tom was becoming an instant Aunt!

Halloween overall is a great holiday! I love dressing up and seeing everyone else dress up as well! Last year the girls in my family decided to go to Disneyland for my little sister's birthday after last year we were hooked! Disneyland over Halloween is the best! We all dressed up and had so much fun at Mickey's not so scary Halloween (yes we are grown women) It is so much fun though! This year we had the group from UP, Mulan, Rapunzel, Ursla, Jack Sparrow, Tink, and my Grandma was a cute witch! This year Halloween itself was kind of a bust. We got back from Disneyland on Halloween so I didn't have much time to plan anything so we just hung out with our families we didn't even dress up so lame! I did make dinner in a pumpkin and that was pretty sweet! Overall it was a great holiday!

End of Summer (through pics)

My cousin Jason leaving for his mission!
A lot of boating and Lake Powell
This guy and gal got hitched!

Had a killer trip to Moab
Of course hit up the Rodeo!
Tom looked like a major creep for a couple days
Bachelorette party! I will never be a pole dancer

I am so sad summer is over. School has taken over our lives.
(hence why it is November and I am posting about summer)
Probably one of the better summers so far!

It was a good time!

Monday, July 11, 2011


I don't even know where to start when I think about being married for one year! To think that I was so nervous about the idea of marriage is so crazy to think now! I feel very blessed to be married to Tom. He is such a hard worker and is full of love. To celebrate our first anniversary we got a massage together and went to the Oaks for dinner! We got our first massage together on our honeymoon so we figured we would make it a tradition and get one every year! Marriage is great and I cannot wait for many years to come with my man!

Her 4th Anniversary of Her 20th Birthday!

About 4 months ago my sweet Grandma sent out invitations to her 4th anniversary of her 20th birthday! We went to Maddox to celebrate and let's just say my mouth has been watering ever since the invitations were sent out! It was a great celebration! I wish my Grandpa could have been there with us but it was still great! My Grandma is wonderful she is such a hard worker and never rests for a minute! I just want to write a funny story from the other day to prove that my Grandma hates to be babied and just so that down the road I can remember. My Grandma is our number one fan of our co-ed softball league. Last week our game was at 10:30 at night! I figured my Grandma wouldn't want to come but I called to invite her just in case she did. When she answered the phone I told her about our game and asked if she wanted to come. My Grandma could not put any words together. She just kept mumbling and was struggling to talk. This scared me and I asked her if I should come over to check on her she answered with a firm NO! When I hung up I called my aunt. Many may be wondering why didn't you just walk down the street to see if she was ok? Once again my Grandma does not want to be babied I was scared! So I called Aunt Jan and told her to call Grandma to see if everything was ok. A few minutes later my Aunt called back and said the first thing my Grandma said when she picked up the phone was "Did Whitney just call you?" My Grandma was so mad that we would have to check on her! I guess my phone call and woke her up from a nap and she was a little out of it when she was talking to me! The whole thing was scary but so funny just because my Grandma was so mad that we would check on her! She is a fighter! We love you so much and happy celebration of your 4th anniversary of your 20th birthday party Grandma!

Showering Keelee With LOVE!!

We threw Keelee a bridal shower last week and it was a major success! My mom seriously needs to go into the party business! It was a stressful morning getting ready for this event though! All before noon I. . . got my hair done, went to Target, made a pound of spaghetti salad, went back to Target, took Kiah to a birthday party, went to Target again!, went to Zurchers, put together center pieces, went to Harmons, and then to the party! I was beat! So many people came to celebrate with Keelee! My grandma made 60 yes 60 rolls for our sweet pork sandwiches and an hour into the part they were gone! Mikelle had to run to the store to buy more rolls! Crazy! It was an open house too! We set out a quilt so that people could tie a little when they came so Keelee would have a quilt by the end of the party! This idea was a bust! This quilt was almost the death of me! I do not quilt but man all night me, Ruby Jane, and Jan worked on this quilt! It turned out perfect though! It was a successful party and I am so excited for Keelee! Two more weeks!!
