Jody and I have been married for 6 years now! We live a simple life, but it's a happy life. We've been blessed with our sweet Elsie who we adore each and every day. Here's to a blog of thoughts, memories, and who are we kidding, lots of Elsie!!

Our New Truck

Jody and I have been looking for a good 4 wheel drive for a while now! We have decided we need one due to the snow and for Jody to go racing as much as he wants! We found a GREAT deal on a Black Lariat F-150 in Hurricane, UT!! It has all the little extra's that Jody wanted so he was excited! We drove down together today to pick it up and I really didn't want to do that whole drive back and forth in one day thing, but Jody told me he would buy me In-N-Out so I was sold! It was really so much fun taking the day off from work and going on a little road trip!!!! The things I do for In-N-Out....it's seriously SAD!!
And the weather was gorgeous!!

He was SO excited...

So....Anyone who knows us, knows we have been wanting a baby for a good year now! We have been so patient and are fully aware that it takes alot of couples some time to concieve at first! We went to see our Specialist and he is absolutely wonderful!! He always assures us that we are two great healthy people who will eventually conieve, but it does take time at first for some couples! Luckily, we both know that there is a plan and a family waiting to come down to join us but its all within the Lord's timing! That makes everything ok! ....Jody and I are loving our time with just the two of us, going on great vacations, loving our jobs, and trying to strengthen our weaknesses so we can be the best parents we possible can for our future family!

In the meantime, the Doctor gave ME some requirements that I need to meet to help make things hopefully more successful and me more healthy!! He told me he has had great success rates on doing all of these steps! Seriously???...........Ha, while Jody gets to continue being a daily "Pepsi/Red Bull/Monsters/RockStars/No Fear" drinker, (which he's cut back a TON, just for this reason....SOO grateful for that!!) living life as normal, I am busy on my 10 step plan! He's been great to go to the gym in the morning's with me but when we eat dinner, and he orders Pepsi....that's when I get jealous! That's okay though!! They are all great things that I need to put in my life anyways, so I'm excited to get in the best shape possible!!! Here we go!

Amy's Daily Steps......
1. Drink a gallon of water a day, 1/2 by noon, and the other 1/2 by 6:00 pm! (Is this possible?)

2. Exercise a minimun of 3 days a week!

3. Take a MILLION vitamins! B vitamins, Pernantals, Multi-Vitamins, all the above!

So...... When I first got this list, My Doctor and I were in a fight, (not really!!) but I've decided to be positive and be thankful that there are simple things I can do to help the long journey be more succesful!! I'm excited if anything else to just be healthy and get in shape! Can't be that bad of a plan right? ....BUT, just wanted to remind everyone who can have kids easily, to be FOREVER GRATEFUL!!!!!
