So I am trying this stuff because there's a bunch of fuss that it works and I got a free 15 day trial (just paid $10 shipping). It's a mix of an Acai supplement and a Colon cleanse supplement and it's supposed to make you lose weight without exercise or changing your diet. I figured, what better time to try it then as the Holiday's are winding down? I am on day two. One thing I did already notice is that I have lost a lot of water but not sure if that's just because I got all sugared out and haven't ate nearly as many sweets yesterday and today as I have for the last two weeks. I weighed myself this morning and was two lbs lighter than yesterday... Coincidence? We shall see....

So typically every season, everyone goes through the the "normal" holliday stresses. Such as shopping, dealing with crowds, wraping and of course the financial stress. This year is interesting because though we have the financial stress from our accounts being drained from Christmas shopping, everything else has been relatively smooth. We've hit a couple of rough spots with some other unrelated things, such as having some stuff stolen right from our apartment, and having to feel rather scrooge-like over having to ask one of our roomates to find another place to live (NOT FUN). But relatively speaking this Holliday season has been rather cheerful and happy for me. As many of you know I used to be a Christmas-Hater. Due to the many years of being "The Single One" in my family and having to sit and watch everyone else open there loads of gifts from their spouses and children. Last year was an amazing Christmas due to the efforts of my wonderful Sister-in-Law, Brother and now husband. I think this year is going to be amazing too :-) Yay! I think I don't hate Christmas anymore!

So yesterday was our 1 year anniversary since we started dating :-D I started counting from our frist kiss, not our first date because the kiss came later. It's such a cool feeling and I'll tell you why: In the past my longest relationship was 8 months. I know... 8 MONTHS?? That's it? Yes, that's it.... I was a huge commitment phobe and so by month 2 or 3 most guys got the axe because I would start picking them apart or they would just start pushing me to get more serious too fast and annoy the crap out of me. My longest dating relationship lasted as long as it did because 1) he wasn't a member of my church 2) he never pushed for anything serious and 3) he was just way fun to be around so I didn't care if it progressed or not.

Now to get to my point. With Taylor, it's totally different...and has been since day one. Right away I saw myself marrying him.... Had it been a year ago and another guy?...Not a snowball's chance in hell. I would be running the other direction as fast as possible if another guy had told me he was in love with me after only 3 weeks. With Taylor, it just made me soooo excited and happy. So there you have it. That's how I knew Taylor was the one. And now it's a year later and I am still just as giddy and excited as day one :-D

Just thought you should know.

Can a girl become a professional snowboarder at the age of 27 with a bad knee? If so I'm in. Sign me up. I want to make a living at it. I'm tired of sitting at a desk. That's all :-)

Sleep is my friend

So I was the queen of sleep this weekend. Friday, I got off work at noon, went home and ate lunch with my honey and then crashed till 3pm when Janet came over to hang for a bit. Then, we went to bed around Midnight that night after and eventful night of dinner, a movie, crime busting by catching some "Dine and Dashers" and then grocerie shopping. We slept till 11am the next morning! We then went up to the Oakland temple with my cousin Drew his wife Hillary and their two boys and watched the interprative dance performance up there at the Stake center as a part of all of the Christmas stuff they have going on. It was....interesting.....I think everyones FAVORITE part (insert laughter because of private joke) was then "The little girl dropped her light and it broke!". ha ha. I think Spencer is still talking about it. Sorry Hil.... ha ha ha Then we had a magical dinner at Fudruckers and played a fun game of Clue DVD. We probably hit the sac around 11 and woke early Sunday for 9am church. The clincher was taking the two hour nap after church. So needless to say, I got a TON of sleep this weekend and it felt GREAT! I actually didn't feel the need for caffiene today which is amazing seeing as how I always have the HUGEST case of the Monday's every week. *sigh* Sleep is my friend...

Inspired to blog

So I'm totally bummed that we didn't get to go snowobarding while in Utah due to lack of good snow....big bummer....however, we did get to hang out with two of my best friends that i don't get to see often which was awesome. Especially hanging with Jami and Shane and catching up on the years missed. Good times!

In other news: While reading my cousin-in-law's (is there such a thing?) blog in which she expressed how much she appreciates her husband, I decided I would like to do the same. I think that sometimes though we tell them, we just need to say it publicly. Similar to Hillary, I will list it in points:

1) He is so amazing in that he puts up with me when I get whiney and tired or run down feeling. I was terribly sluggish and run down our whole Thanksgiving/Utah trip and slept for the majority of the drive home to CA. He puts up with it like a champ and never makes me feel like I am annoying him, though I am almost positive I am.

2) I must count myself EXTREMELY lucky that he can admit if he's wrong or feels like he's being a jerk right away. Most men are terribly stubborn and just want to be right or "win", if you will.... Not Taylor, if he can see that my feelings are hurt, he will immediately appoligize for acting -insert action here- and affectionately remind me how much he loves me until i have softened. (I'm quite stubborn you see so it takes me some time to let the ice melt when i'm upset)

3) I LOVE LOVE LOVE that if I ask him to do something whether big or small, he will do it right away. No whining, no complaining. He'll just usually say something like "My pleasure" or "of course, I will do anything for you my love" It makes me feel so incredibly respected and loved.

4) I appreciate how much he loves babies. Sometimes men are repelled by most babies except for their own. I love that Taylor will just play and play with a little child or baby. It's so cute. If you know me at all you know how much I love children and babies and always have. So this is a BIG one for me.

Warning: May be graphic
5) I love how sexy he thinks I am. Seriously. He makes me feel like I look like a super model at all times. Every morning when I come out of the bathroom in my robe after showering I start picking out what I want to wear and then take my robe off to start getting dressed. It never fails...as soon as he hears my underwear drawer shut, he wakes up and opens his eyes to appreciate my body and he'll murmer "mmm". And just throughout the day he'll wink at me or goose me. I LOVE it! Though I've always had my self image issues, he makes me feel amazing all the time :)

End of Graphic content :)
6) He is so unbelievably kind. Seriously, you will not talk to one person who does not think Taylor is one of the coolest, most laid back, kindest people they have ever known. He brings good balance with his White personality to my very YELLOW/RED personality traits. He teaches me how to be a better person every day.

So anyway, I just wanted to express those things out loud because I want people to know why I think my husband is so amazing. Cause fact is: HE IS!!!!

Thats all....
for now
