It's November!

So, I've decided that I need to be better at updating my blog, I want to be able to remember little things that are happening now down the road.

In my last post, I wrote about going to nursing school. Chris and I talked about it, we decided that this dream will have to actually be put on hold for a few years. It will probably be a 3-4 year endeavor to get through school (with all the prereqs and then 2 years of full time nursing school). We probably won't want to wait 4 years for our next baby. So, I have decided that I'm going to wait until our kids are in school to pursue that dream. It WILL happen, just not as soon as I had hoped.

All of my life I planned on just being a stay-at-home mom, I love my baby girl more than anything, but recently I discovered that I need to work to not go stir-crazy. Yesterday was my first day back to work. I'm going to be an accounting assistant at Rescue Alert. I'm really excited about it, it's part-time, so I only have to be away 4 days a week for a couple hours. I think it's really going to help me stay sane, plus it's really fun and nice to talk to adults again. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE VIVIEN more than anything, working will make me appreciate and cherish my time with her even more.

Yesterday was the election, sadly Romney didn't win, I was really hoping that he would. BUT it's okay, everything happens for a reason, and there's no use complaining about things we can't change. Everything will be alright.

"Men may fail in this country, earthquakes may come, seas may heave beyond their bounds, there may be great drought, disaster, and hardship, but this nation, founded on principles laid down by men whom God raised up, will never fail. This is the cradle of humanity, where life on this earth began in the Garden of Eden. This is the place of the new Jerusalem. This is the place that the Lord said is favored above all other nations in all the world. This is the place where the Savior will come to His temple. This is the favored land in all the world. Yes, I repeat, men may fail, but this nation won’t fail. I have faith in America; you and I must have faith in America, if we understand the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are living in a day when we must pay heed to these challenges. I plead with you not to preach pessimism. Preach that this is the greatest country in all the world. This is the favored land. This is the land of our forefathers. It is the nation that will stand despite whatever trials or crises it may yet have to pass through". -Harold B. Lee.

Chris is working hard at school and work, as usual. I'm so proud to be his wife, he is such a good person and hard worker. He is a great father and husband, I'm so lucky to have him.

So pretty and happy

Date night at Salt City Burgers, yum!

Thanks for reading, have a great day! XO
