Ok so I'm still new to this whole blogger world and I ended up losing the "About Me" post. Urghhh... Oh well. I guess there are much worse things I could complain about. So here I go again. I'm 23, married to the love of my life and I have an 11 month old baby girl whom I absolutely adore. I could not love her more if I tried. I never really understand how much I could love someone so much until I heard her first cry when she was born. I literally felt a physical change in which I felt that I was endowed with motherhood. Although my husband can bug the crap out of me sometimes, I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world. He's my best friend. I can rely on him for anything I will ever need. And I know he loves and adores me as much as I do him. We've been through so, so much together and it's taken us a long time to get where we are today. We were married civilly on December 18, 2004 after being together since August 24, 2002. We were just recently sealed for time and all eternity in the Mesa Temple on June 3, 2006 and had our little Baily Bug sealed to us that same day. So obviously, I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The day we were sealed will forever be the best day of my life. I cannot tell you how extremely hard it was to get there or how rewarding it was to finally accomplish my life-long ambition and dream of having an eternal family. I was born into the Church but my father isn't a member and my mom was never active. I was active on and off throughout my life but I made the decision to dedicate my life to living worthy of exaltation in my Father's Kingdom so I will never be inactive in the Church again. I was most miserable when I was inactive and living of the world. My testimony in the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is steady as a rock and immovable. I will never deny the truth that I know that's been given to me through the Holy Ghost. I love to have fun. I love to read a good book. I absolutely love to read the Book of Mormon. I love to laugh. And I really love Paradise Bakery. Mmmm. I am at a very unhealthy point in my life and look forward to starting the Body-for-LIFE program on Monday the 31st. I need to get healthy and be a hot momma! I work for an automotive upholstery company as an Office Manager. It's an ok job, but definitely not where I want to be. My ultimate goal is to be a stay-at-home-mom. It's killing me to be away from my baby so much. Hopefully I'll be able to quit by her first birthday on Labor Day. I'm also endeavoring to start back at Mesa Community College this semester to pursue my Registered Nursing Degree. It's a huge decision but I get so excited about going back to school. I loooove to learn. My husband and I are also in the process of deciding where we want to move. We are renting his mom's house but it's turned into a big problem and I want out soon. My dad made a great offer to us to help us buy my grandparent's old house in Wisconsin where he lives. But I'm not sure if we're ready for that big of a change... or the cold for that matter. We're either going to do that or find a home to rent here in the city and my one of my bestest friends, my brother Beau, will move down from Show Low in December to rent a room from us. He's 21, just got home from his mission in Italy and has decided to pursue a career as a Pediatric Doctor. I love him so much. I love all of my family so much. I have definitely had a super hard life when it comes to my very blended family, but I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world. I could write a book here, but I won't. I guess I'll just have to explain a little more and more as I go. I don't even know if anyone will read this but this is more for me anyway. The comments from other would be welcome though. So anyway... welcome to "The Wonderful Life that is Mine!"
