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!!

The Month of April...

We are so excited for the month of APRIL!! We are making a huge decision that we have been contemplating for a while, and it will be great to see where it leads us!
It's my BIRTHDAY on the 5th! YAY!!! That's not really the excitement of the month but you gotta love birthdays!
What is so exciting is....that for my birthday, we decided to take our next step in the Fertility Process!!! We both can't wait!! It's so expensive to do anything! Just to talk to our doctor for 30 mins is 175$! BUT...he gave us a great deal on artificial insemination so we thought that would be a great place to put our money for a birthday gift this year! We are trying SO SO HARD to not get our hopes up but just can't help that maybe great things could happen by the end of next month! We have prayed long and hard about procedure's and what we should do from here and we feel strongly that giving artificial insemination a shot, would be a great place to continue!
So.... lots of mixed emotions right now for Jody and I, but we know if we keep trying to do what's right, the Lord will hopefully bless us!!

The only place in this crazy world....

Jody and I have put off going to the temple for WAY to long! We have no kids, nights and weekends are mostly free, and we have one that's maybe 5 minutes away, so there is definitely NO EXCUSE!! It seems like everytime we plan, somehow we never make it, but everytime we go, it is such a GREAT, GREAT experience!! We have had so much to be thankful for and we're glad we have been able to make it monthly like we should! It brings so much joy into our lives and how comforting it is to know there's one place in this crazy world we can go and reflect on everything that's important!

A Great Weekend....

Jody and I have been SOO busy lately! Life has been crazy, crazy, but we are so thankful for all the new changes! Jody is doing great at work! He just designed a real estate coaching package for today's market and it's AWESOME!!! They are selling like crazy! I can't believe the things he puts together and how he makes it all work! Amazing!!! I wish him luck in Chicago this week and wish I could go with him but I'm stuck with work this week too!

We are also busy working on our latest rental property! I'm loving all the remodeling we are doing!! It was okay when we bought it, but since we are going to live in it for a little while, we are trying to make it as "HOMIE" as we possibly can! We have been spending all nights after work painting, ordering furniture, and finishing the batheroom but we are really enjoying it!

And last, it was so good to see Alyssa this weekend! Nothing is better then seeing old friends and picking up right where you left off! We had such a good time and appreciated her and Chelsey TONS for the help down at our new place!
Thanks for the visit Alyssa and can't wait til you move here in August!

Finally a Nephew :)

Ethan James Bowler was born on Feburary 23rd!! We are so excited to have a little boy in the family!! We spent all weekend at Nate and Lezlee's hanging out with my nieces and helping out where we could! My parents also came up and it was all a great time!!

While the other girls were at school, Becca was posing for the camera! She's such a fun girl!

Jody and I had a busy weekend besides being with the new baby! I posted ALL my furniture on KSL and it sold in minutes!! (Not a good sign... I probably should have sold them for more but oh well!!) We sold our TV, our Sectional, our 2 black leather couches, dining table, desk, and seriously everything else!! Jody and I are moving next month and we are going from a 3 story house to a lot smaller place!! We are really excited to get down there and fix it up to have another rental property but it will be an adjustment for a while!!! :)
