My thoughts...

So, I am sure that many of you already have heard of this blog,, but I have been so amazed by it! NieNie was recently featured in an article in the Arizona Republic. As I was reading it I was so inspired! Also as I was reading it I had some thoughts on being a mother.

No I am not pregnant, and just to answer the question, it is not going to be for a while. I hope that this is not too much information, but it is just not the right time for Scott and I. Both of us want to be parents, but if I know one thing about my life. The Lord's timing and my wants are never in sync. But another thing that I know are the things that I wait for mean so much more to me when they actually come. For example, when I first meet Scott I wanted to marry him right then and there. But the Lord needed him to go out on a mission and teach the people of Brazil. I also needed to have my own spiritual growth and when Scott did get home, the love that we had was so much more intense and we were so much more ready to take the marriage step. When we were moving up here to Provo, I wanted, and tried very hard mind you, to get a job starting in February but it was not until May and a huge leap of faith on our part that the Lord blessed me with my AMAZING job.

I know that the same thing will apply with having children. I want to be a mother so bad, I want to have that responsibility, I want to fell that connection with my own son or daughter. Even though it is not the right time for us to have kids, I know that when the time does come that Scott and I get to be parents, it will mean that much more to us. It will truly be an amazing gift that we will cherish. I know all of you out there are saying that it is not the easiest thing being parents, but can anyone honestly tell me that they wouldn't trade having a child for anything!

I am so grateful though for everything that I have been blessed with. I am so grateful for an amazing husband, who loves me unconditionally and only wants what is best for me and is willing to sacrifice so that I am happy! I am grateful for all of my family. I am grateful for wonderful inlaws that are more like my own family than "inlaws". I am grateful for my job and for all of the blessings that I get from it. I am grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ and the peace and comfort I get from that knowledge. But mostly I am grateful for a Heavenly father who loves me, and knows what is best for me and for a Savior that has felt what I have felt and is there for me no matter what.

I hope that this post wasn't too much rambling from me. I don't know how many people will read this, but I do know that I feel better saying it.

Bugged...and Thanksgiving!

So I have to say that I am so bugged right now...for the past week and a half I have had a horrible stomach ache off and on. It all started two weeks ago...I went to bed not feeling very well and then in the middle of the night I woke up and was super sick! I visited the bathroom...if you know what I mean...I was so lightheaded I had the chills and everything. I didnt go to work the following day and started to feel lots better. I thought that is was just a 24 hour thing. Scott then got it on Saturday and he was even sicker than I was. He stayed home one day from work and then felt alot better. Then the Wednesday before Thanksgiving I again went home from work early because I was so sick to my stomach. I thought that I was going to die! I finally started to feel better later that night, and I was at least able to eat some Thanksgiving dinner. The rest of the weekend, I felt pretty good, but then today...It hit me all over again! It honestly feels like my stomach is contrating back and is not like nausea, or anything but it is just pain! I wish I knew what was wrong and what I could do to fix it. So if anyone knows what might be causing it...or better yet, what I can do to fix it...let me know!

Other than that...this past weekend was super fun! Thursday was spent with the Butlers. Dinner was FABULOUS! And it was so fun to hang out with all of the sibs...Then on Friday all of my family were together for the first time for a year and a half! I got to meet my new nephew who is adorable! And just spend lots of time with them all! We finally got our family pictures taken and as soon as I get them back I will post some of them! We also were able to go out to dinner at Old Spaghetti Factory which is a classic for our family! We also justs spent a ton of time together!

It was a little crazy with 7 adults and a baby in our apartment! But we had a good time! Hope everyone else had a good time the past weekend and got to spend lots of time with their families and friends!

Three Little Tidbits

So not much is going on in our lives right now. Scott is super super busy with school and work and I am trying to stay busy with work and trying to keep the house clean, the dinner made and the dishes done. I am hoping that I am succeeding somewhat however if you were to walk into my house tonight you might smell the White Chicken Chili that I made for dinner, you will find the dishes in the dishwasher and the dishwasher running...but you will have to walk through the disaster that is my front room to see the clean kitchen! Oh well... at least I won two out of three tonight!

So I am sure you are wondering what little tidbits I will be saying here in my small little blog so here it goes...

1st tidbit...Red Lobster's Endless Shrimp!
This past weekend, Scott and I decided to splurge a little on our eating out budget and go to Red Lobster for their endless shrimp. Now for those of you who know me, know that I am not a seafood fan, but I am a huge fan of seeing the endless smiles of a happy husband! I honestly have never seen him so happy and giddy at not only the food, but also the service, which was absolutely outstanding! My chicken was more on the dry side, but the biscuits could not be beat! Definitely worth the 45 minute wait!!!

2nd little tidbit...I am going on VACA!!! to visit my sister in Phoenix!!!
Yeah that is right... the best part is the fact that I get to fly!!! However I always get so nervous to would think because of the fact that it is a huge 1 ton plane in the air right? No, it is the security check point! I hate the fact that a) I have to take off my shoes! That is just annoying right? b) The people look at me like I am a criminal...but they are just like me...they have no special training right? or do they??? and c) I can't take all of my hair products in my carry on! I know I know this is a little dramatic of me, but when it takes you 10 years to finally defeat your hair, products are like air and water!!! 100% needed in all situations! But oh well...I do get to go on an airplane, see my sister at the end for lots of shopping, pedicures, movies, and of course some good girl talk!!!

3rd little tidbit...I love being able to actually watch all of the TV series that are on right now.
This is the first time in who knows how long that I have actually paid attention to all of the new shows. I was always too busy with school and work and friends. Now that I don't have school, work is not that time consuming particularly at night, and I don't need to keep the same social status that I did before I got married...(just a way of complaints here...) I have plenty of time for The Office, Modern Family, Psych, Monk, The Good Wife, Smallville, and of course my favorite...The Next Iron Chef!
I am sure that it also helps that I now that TiVo...the greatest thing ever known to man!!! So that I can watch them whenever I want...although I usually watch them as they are recording...and hate when I get to the Live TV icon!

So that is the life of us here in Provo. Hope that all those that might be reading this enjoy it. I know that I am little, okay a lot random, but hey when this is your social is okay to be a little random!

I am so in LOVE with my HUSBAND!!!

So I have to say that I have the best husband ever! This week has been a really interesting week and one that has been really good for us. To make a long story short, someone I am fairly close to told me that he and his wife were having marital problems. It was a painful thing for him to tell me and it was the biggest blessing for me to hear. It amazes me what you take for granted until you see someone lose that one thing.
I honestly could not be any happier with my husband. He is such an amazing caring and loving husband. And I wanted to make sure that he knew that so that is what I did. I told him how much I loved him that I knew I was far from perfect but I was going to try my hardest to make him as happy and he makes me.

Then out of the blue later that day Scott didnt have to work and when I got home, he said to me get ready to go out. I asked where we were going and he said it was a surprise. He punched an address into our GPS and off we went to a destination that I didnt know...
I realize as we got closer that there was a movie theater and I realized that Scott was taking me to see a movie...when I asked him what movie...he wouldn't tell me but then I realized that he was taking me to see The Time Traveler's Wife. It was such a good movie. I did cry alot, but it was really good. It even almost got Scott to cry.

Then we went out to dinner at Macronni Grill and had a really good time. It was an awesome night. One that hasnt happened like that for a while. And it was all a surprise from Scott!!!

I just want everyone to know (well just those that read my blog!) to know that I love Scott more than anything in the world and I am so happy that I get to spend the rest of eternity with him by my you babe!!!

Our random night last night...

So this is so random and crazy that I have to blog about it. So last night Scott and I were sitting in our family room watching TV when all of the sudden we hear this crash that came from outside.

Now before I can finish the story, I have nightmares about being in a crash and it happening right outside my apartment! And when I heard the crash I was like there you have it! I knew eventually it was going to happen! Just glad that it wasnt me!

So we walk outside and Scott walks across the street and sees that there is a man on the street with a bunch of people all around him. There are two cars that are in the gas station parking lot across the street and a minivan that has pulled of the side of the road. We see that our neighbor is out so we go to him and ask what happened. He tells us that this saturn hit a kid on a motorcycle and then a Honda rearended the Saturn.

Okay now here is where the story gets weird. In talking to our neighbor a little bit more he tells us that the driver of the Saturn that hit the motorcycle just took off. He was talking to him and saying that he didnt see the motorcycle and the next thing he takes off, not in his car, but on foot into the residential neighborhood leaving his car behind!

So first of all, not a good idea. But it gets better! The Honda that hit the Saturn starts driving off!!! I was like...what kind of people are these people! There is a man in the street that could be dying and they take off because they dont want a ticket and their insurance to go up! Or they both have drugs and or alcohol and dont want to get busted!!!

I do have to commend the fire department and the paramedics because the did get to the scene in less than 2 minutes. I dont know what ever happened with it all, because it didnt make the news....but we saw the motorcyclist feet move so at least we know that he was not paralyzed...

How random was that?

p.s. I will soon post another blog with our weekend adventures to Timpanogos Cave!

Our Adventures

So over the past couple of weeks Scott and I have had some super fun things to do. Both of us had birthdays and we also got to spend quite a bit of time with Scott's family. So here are some random pictures of all of our outings...

Here is just a quick pic in the car on the way up to the big SLC!

Here is Scott, Ann & Brenon at our 4th of July celebration!

I had the wonderful opportunity to go see Brenon (Scott's brother) go through the Draper Temple as he is preparing to serve a mission to the San Diego Spanish speaking mission. Scott had to work, but it was an awesome experience! I love going to the temple...:)

These are the beautiful flowers that Scott had delivered to my work on my birthday! They were so pretty once they started to bloom, and they smelled wonderful...I have the best husband by the way... :)

Here is my birthday present!!!! We finally actually have bedding! I know for those of you who have been in my house, this does not look like anything else that I may have chosen, but I thought that I would be daring in the bedroom!!! It looks awesome against all of our white furniture and it is super cute as well!

Well that is about all the is going on with us. We are just waiting for Scott to start school and are starting to get super excited for the holidays to come around so that we can see all of our family again!

Blog to you soon!

Update on the Butlers

First of all it has been way too long since I last posted!!! There have been so many things happen, that fair warning this might be a really long post so please bear with me!

First of all, for those who don't know, I got a job! Not only did I get a job...I got a kick butt awesome job! I really cant even describe how blessed we were! The story is such an amazing one, that I am going to tell you all here on the blog...

So as many of you know... we moved up here to Provo without me having a job etc...we did move up with the hopes of a couple of jobs we were hoping to work out. We moved up on Saturday May 2 and by Tuesday both of the jobs that we were hoping to work fell through. I was starting to get really discouraged, so having no internet at my house Thursday I went to the Provo Library and had 90 minutes to apply for as many jobs as I could. When I was looking I found the posing for a job that I applied for a week before and the email came back with a bad email address. I was super excited that I found it again and applied to the right email address.

I also applied for about 20 other jobs, basically anything that I could find that I might be remotely qualified for, and just left the library hoping a praying for anything!!! Friday morning I woke up to a phone call from the owner of Rockwell Window Wells, which was the email that came back bad and I reapplied for. He asked if I could come to meet him in an hour. I of course said YES and hurry and got ready and went to the interview. Meanwhile I also had another interview up in Salt Lake later that day.

I went to the interview with a prayer in my heart that I will impress them and make them know how great I really can be! So I talked to Vaughn the owner and the interview went great! He showed me around the production floor and I meet some of the production guys and really liked them. I also then meet the plant manager and again it went really well. To make a long story short (I know, I know!) I told him that I had an appointment that I needed to get to, he then asked if it was a job interview and I said yes and he said that that was no good.

I left and about 30-45 minutes later Vaughn called me back and offered my the job! So here is the lowdown about the it is in PROVO! about 10 minutes from our apartment. I am doing exactly what I always wanted to do which is an Accountant/Office Manager. But I am also shipping manager, marketing, HR, anything office etc...and the best part is that I feel that I am getting paid what I am worth! I really can not believe this blessing!

So I was hired on a Friday and I started the following Monday. When talking to Vaughn a little bit more about the job, he said that he interviewed 10 people before me and just couldn't make a decision, but when he interviewed me, he just felt right about it. Again, I feel so incredibly blessed by this. I really do! Heavenly father really has directed us in what we are suppose to be doing!

So other than that...Scott and I have just been getting use to the PROVO area! If anyone knows anything really fun to do please let me know. But all I have to say is that we love our apartment we love living in Provo and we are really excited for Scott to start school...

Well this post is long enough...I will try an add some more pictures of some of our adventures here in the next couple of days.

Random Thoughts

Here are 10 random thoughts that are rustling around in my head...

1. Tomorrow is my last day at work...should I be happy or sad...What I am going to do if I cant find another job. This I think is the thing that I keep thinking of the most. I know that I am freaking out for no reason and that I need to accept the Lord's timing on everything, but with Scott starting school soon and not being able to work full time, how are things going to work out. I know they will, but in my little is a tough one to figure out!

2. I really want to find a daybed for our second bedroom. I am not even moved in and I am trying to buy new furniture! I really think that a daybed with a trundle would work the best for the size of the room. That way if just one person was coming to stay they can just sleep on the bed but if two people come then there will be the trundle that is tucked away...or we could just make all of our guests sleep on an air mattress... is that rude of us?

3. I really want to find more blogs of friends to read! I love seeing what everyone is up to and what is new in their life! I would really like to find people from high school. I really don't think that I took full advantage to some of the great friendships that I had in high school and now I wish that I would have!

4. I have the best husband ever. Sure there are things about him that may drive me a little nutto, but he really is the best match for me. He is so much more outgoing, adventurous, and smarter than me that I am always striving to be more like him. I know that this marriage was what the Lord had planned for me. And I couldn't be any more grateful for a wonderful husband.

5. I am really excited to move away from home. But am sad, scared, sad and did I say sad? I know that there comes a point in every persons life that they have to leave their parents side and take on the world by themselves, or if your lucky with your spouse. I have lived with my parents for almost 23 years with only 1 of those years not living in the same house as them! I am sad because my mom is my best friend! We can talk about anything and everything and she is my reasoning board. She tells me when I am being dumb, rude, or just plain stupid! But she is also there to tell me what she thinks is best for me. Even with all of that, I am excited to be just me and Scott. No relying on my friendship with my parents and not making other friends. We will be alone and it is going to force us to learn to rely on each other!

6. I really want to be a mother. I have noticed that in everything in my life, I usually end up waiting for what I want. I wanted to marry Scott after 3 months and it took 3 years and 3 months. I wanted to find a job in March...I am still looking for a job. I want to be a mother and it will still be years until we will be in the right position (for us and according to us) to have children. But the one thing that I have noticed, yes I have to wait...but it is in the waiting that I learn the best lessons, and grow the most!

7. I need to be more determined with going to the temple. I know that I don't go near as much as I should and I need to get better! I love the peace I feel when I am in the temple and the things that I learn there! I still can remember the fear that I had the day I went through, and then the joy that I felt when I was sitting in the celestrial room. Wow is all I have to say!

8. I am not hungry...that is something that has not happened in a long time! (I told you some of these were going to be random!)

9. I really want to have a romantic date with my husband that is filled with lots of holding hands, cuddling, and just feeling the love between us. We have both been so crazy busy recently that that is all I want. I just want to be able to relax and know that our love will conquer anything and everything that lies ahead of us!

10. I really appreciate all of the people in my life! I truly feel so loved! I know that I need to love myself, believe in myself, and trust myself as much as others do. I just don't know what is the best way to do all of that! I just keep working on it one day at a time!

Sorry for the randomness of this post, but I feel better getting it all off my mind!!!

So yesterday I went up north for a job interview and to look for an apartment for us to move into! I saw 5 apartments, and finally found the right one for us! We are super excited because not only is it 900 square feet! But is has an extra bedroom, a dishwasher, washer dryer hookups and it is on the lower level!!!

I will have more pictures to come. I will try and do the whole before and after thing...I always wanted to be able to do that with my very own place!!!

Monday, April 20, 2009


So good news from the Butlers! Scott got a job! He is transferring up to US Bank in Provo and will be starting on the 4th of May! I am so proud of him for being SO FREAKING AMAZING! I am still looking for a job but at least this will get me up there and hopefully meet some people that may know of a open position! But never the less, just as everyone has been telling will all work out in the end!

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

So I guess it is time for a new post. There are alot of changes going on in our lives right now but as I like to say...all of our balls are up in the air right now, and we are waiting to see where they all are going to land.
We have moved out of our apartment and are living with my parents until we know exactly what is going to happen. We are soooo appreciative to my parents for everything they do for us! Hopefully someday we will be able to make it up to them! But Mom and Dad if you are reading this, Thank you so much for everything! You will never know what this means to both Scott and I, we love you!
I am still looking for a job. I am also still waiting to hear back from a couple of places. The thing is that there are plenty of jobs for me to apply for, but the problem is that there are 100 other people applying for the same jobs. So I guess we are just going to have keep praying and doing what we are suppose to do, and when the timing is right...I will find a job.
In other news, Scott had an interview for a universal teller position still at US Bank up in Draper that he should be able to get so, he will at least have a job and can keep food on the table! If he does get the job, we will most likely be moving up there at the beginning of May. The nice thing about that is that it will get me up north so that if a job interview comes up I don't have to drive 4 hours to it.
We did get a new car. We got a Honda Accord that we love! I will try and post some pictures here in a little bit...but it is so nice to be able to have 2 cars now instead of just the one...
That is what is going on with us...I will try and keep this up to date as possible! And let you know what is happening, and when it all happens!

Update on the Butlers

So I thought that it was about time to do a little updating here on the blog! It has been way too long!
First of all we have some EXCITING news! Scott has been accepted to BYU and will be starting in the fall. We are super excited for this, and really anxious for him to be able to start and better yet finish!!! He is going to be able to graduate in 18 months instead of the 2 years normally and then we are hoping to go to either ASU or BYU for his MBA.
So with that being said...this means that we are now moving up to Utah County! Currently I am looking for a job up there, I have had several interviews, and am just waiting to hear back. However, if any one knows of any company looking for a new accountant, office manager, bookkeeper etc., please let me know!!!
We also sold my Honda Accord, and hopefully will be buying a new car this weekend to replace it! We have been sharing a car the past month, while we have been looking, and I have to give props to those other couples out there that share a car!!! It is tough work. Especially when you both work and one of you goes to school!!!
We have also put in our 30 days notice for our apartment, and have started boxing everything up. It is nice because I have been able to go through alot of things and "purge" what I dont need or haven't touched the last year we have been there. I am excited to move into a bigger apartment, if and when we find jobs and move up to Utah County, but for right now all of our stuff will be in boxes in my parents house.
All in all life is a little stressful right now. The only thing that I know right now is that Scott and I are doing everything that the Lord has asked of us, and we are leaving the rest up to him. It is hard, but it has been my experience that when the Lord asks things of you that really are a challenge to you, when you have done all that you can, he will bless you with what you need, and most of the time even more!!! I am sorry to get all churchy on you, but I am so grateful for the gospel and the principles that it teaches me.
That is all for right now. I will hopefully be able to do some more posting of our anniversary trip to Six stay tuned!!!
