Exciting News

I am such a slacker when it comes to posting new blogs! We just got back from Salt Lake on Sunday. We went to the zoo on Friday. It was so hot, but Brock had a great time. He especially loved the white alligator and the giraffes. On Saturday we went to Lagoon with my dad's side of the family. We had a great time! Brock was able to go on some of the bigger rides this year by me taking the wheels out of his Heley's and letting him wear those. They have a thick sole that made him taller. The best part was Lagoona beach. Brock loved to pull everyone around the lazy river. He just finished 6 weeks of swimming lessons and he loves to be in the water. We also loved the one water slide that goes from the slide to a little area of water then switches back to the slide and it keeps going like that for awhile. One of the life guards kept flipping Jason's tube over everytime he went into her water area, it was hillarious! We also had fun mini putting, riding the rides, and watching the music performances, oh yeah and EATING! We left about 11:15 to go back to our motel rooms. On Sunday we all slept in and went to eat at Marie Calendars with the fam. The only thing that sucked was that their air conditioner was broke and it was so hot in there, but the food was GREAT! Then we left for home.
Anyway that is not the exciting news. The exciting news is that I am pregnant! We found out a couple of weeks ago. I am not very far along, maybe a month. I think that I will be due at the end of March. We are all really excited, especially Brock. He has been begging for a brother, a sister, and a baby for awhile. Jason and Brock want it to be a boy and of course I want a little girl. Whatever he or she turns out to be we will love them. Anyway that is our exciting news!

It's AboutTime!

I finally created a blog! I keep telling my SIL that I am going to do it and I have kept putting it off. Anyway a little about myself. I was born in Idaho and moved to Nevada right before I turned 8. I live in a place called Battle Mountain and the only things that it is known for is having a BM on the mountain, which everyone makes fun of us for, and we were named the armpit of America a few years back. So, that pretty much somes up where I live! I am just kidding, I love it here ( I never thought that I would say that) my family is here and so are a lot of my friends that I went to school with. We all swore that we were never going to move back here after we graduated, we were all wrong. There is just something about a small town that makes me feel safe and secure raising my children in!
Enough about BM, I recently just got married to the love of my life on May 17, 2008. It was a great wedding and reception. We had lots of friends and family that shared our special day with us. Jason and I met on the Internet (LDS singles to be specific). He hates when I tell people that, but I think it is hilarious! It doesn't bother me one bit, because I don't think we would have met any other way. We were living at opposite ends of the state! I had started talking to him back in March of 2007 and then he just stopped responding online. Then at the end of July I heard from him again and he explained that his subscription expired and that he had re-signed up. We exchanged phone #'s that night! Two weeks later I met in in the middle of nowhere (Tonapah, Nevada) to ride with him as he followed some buddies of his that were racing from Vegas to Reno. It was a fun trip and things started to progress from there. In October Jason decided to come to Battle Mountain to apply at the mines up here and that we he was hired! I was so excited!
I am so lucky to have found such a great guy who loves me for all of my imperfections. Jason has not only chosen me to be a part of his life, but also he has chosen to be my son's(Brock) dad. I am so excited to expand on our family and hope that it happens soon. Well enough for now, I feel like I just wrote a whole novel!
