This last weekend I got to go to breakfast with a few girls that were in my ward growing up. Rachel Grow, Katie Dickerson, Katie Conover, Rachel Martin. We were only missing 2 girls, Kari Rasmussen and Marissa Whiting. We went to T.C. Eggingtons in Mesa, it was my first time ever going there and it was delicious, they have really good French toast. It was so fun catching up with them and hearing what exciting things they are up to. Then later that day I went to Gecko Grill with my nieces Joslyn and Larissa. They are the cutest girls, I love them to pieces!!!

I am excited for this week because it is my last week of school! I have been taking a sociology class at MCC. It has been a great class and my professor is LDS and he always gives subtle facts, or stats that make the church sound awesome and I love it! I will start school again the end of August, but I am glad I will have a little break.

Weekend update

This was a great week full of fun GIRLS! Wednesday I got to go to lunch at Café Rio with some of my favorite girlfriends from high school. It was so fun to see them and catch up and
see their babies! Thanks Jamie for putting this fun lunch together!
We didn’t get a picture with everyone but here are a few of us.

Kayce, Suzi, Steph, Hillary, Jamie

Thursday night I went with my oldest sister Marci and 3 of her friends to BJ’s and ate yummy appetizers and pizookie!!!! One of my sisters friends that came is going through a divorce and she has 6 beautiful kids, it is so sad. She is such a rock and I have so much respect and admiration for her. I am seriously so thankful for my situation, it could be so much worse.
What is it with these crazy boys!!!????

Friday night I went to I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry, with Stefanie (Albright) and her husband Thomas. It’s quite fun to be the 3rd wheel :} no, I didn’t feel uncomfortable I just hope they didn’t mind me tagging along. The movie was funny but it had a ton of sleazy parts they could have left out.

Saturday night I went to dinner at Café Rio with Annie Randall, Holly Phelps, Kelly (Ethington) & her sister Jody and then we went to see HAIRSPRAY! It was such a cute movie! I love it! The whole movie I was so entertained! I highly recommend seeing it if you haven’t. All in all it was a great week full of fun girls!

good times

A few weeks ago we had a Jensen, Decker and Cook block party at our house. It was so fun to see all three of our families together. Brother and Sister Jensen just returned from Indonesia where they served a mission and Brother Jensen was called to be the Mission President. I love the Jensen’s and Decker’s I am so lucky that I got to grow up next to them. They are the BEST!

We got back last night from Lake Powell and we had a blast! It was fun to spend time with my family in such a beautiful place. We did lots of tubing, wakeboarding, eating and laughing. I love that place and I am so glad we got to go this year.
Over the 4th of July weekend we went to Desert Ridge in Scottsdale for a few days and shopped, ate and hung out at the pool. We watched the fireworks at Tempe Town Lakes,
they were great.

Welcome home brothers! My two younger brothers that are twins came home! I got to see Sean in Harrisburg at his missionary farewell fireside. He looked Awesome and was so happy and full of the spirit. I had to wait until I came home to see the other twin, and he looked just as good. I love my family, they are the best. My brothers did not know anything that was going on with Justin and I. My parents didn’t want them to have to worry about us for the last few weeks of their missions. So, I told them right after they got released and they were so sad and shocked. They cried so hard when I told them. They love Justin and were really close to him. It is so sad. They have been so sweet to me, and when I came home from Maryland they were at the airport with signs and each of them were holding a bouquet of flowers for me. They are the best brothers.

This was the Monday night before I left Maryland. A few of my friends came to Bill Bateman’s to say good bye. It was so sad to leave so many fun people that I have got to know over the last year. I miss all of them so much. I love all of you girls, thanks for your love and support. You girls are the best!

New Blog

Hello friends! I hope everyone is having a great 4th of July weekend! The 4th of July is such a fun holiday. Well, this is really sad news and I don’t know if posting it on my blog is the best idea, but I think it’s the easiest way to let everyone know. The last 3 months have been a little crazy for Justin and I.
The day before April conference Justin told me that he did not believe that the church was true. Without going into to many details we tried to work things out over the last few months.  It has not been an easy decision.  As Justin and I were trying to work things out I started to question things about the church. Nothing major but a few things that Justin told me that I had never heard before.
I have gained a stronger testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel.  I know without a doubt, this is the true church.  I have moved to Arizona and Justin and I are getting a divorce. I am crying as I type this because things are still pretty fresh. But I know that this is the best decision for me. I just want to thank my family and the friends who have prayed for me and helped me through this. I love you all.  Have a great weekend, the church is true and I love you!
