I am thankful!

I really can't express perfectly how thankful I am to have such an amazing husband. He is the person that makes me want to be better every day and I love him more and more everyday because of it. I can't even begin to explain how blessed we are to bring Beck into this world and to love and care for him. I am also grateful for my parents. I am so extremely lucky that my heavenly father chose them for me. They spoil me rotten and love me more than I can imagine. I know I don't show my appreciation for them all the time but I couldn't ask for better parents who treat me with respect and infinite amounts of love and kindness. I am also thankful for my brother and his desire to serve the lord. I am grateful for my nana and papa who are the best grandparents any girl could ask for. I am thankful to not have some psychotic in-laws and for their love and kindness as well! They are all examples to me and I look up to them. I am so blessed to have the life that I have. I feel like I should be expecting some tragic event since everything is so great. I mean no one is perfect but if you look at some others lives mine is pretty amazing (not to brag) and I am so lucky. I love my life and the life I'm bringing into this world. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to become a mother as well as having Matt as the father. I AM SO BLESSED!

And his name will be....


You may call him Beck! oh he is going to be so beautiful thanks to Matt!! I have just hit 22 weeks which is just barely halfway through but everything is going so great i almost don't feel pregnant minus the nudging reminders from inside. He is so sqwirmy and full of energy, and loves to kick it into gear when i get home and Matt and i are relaxing at home. Beck loves showing his daddy how much he really loves him! It really is amazing how there is something actually growing and marinating inside of me. Every nudge or kick is a beautiful reminder. Oh man i cant get over the fact that we are going to be parents and be responsible for this little guy! I'm committed and will always try my best to be a strong example throughout his life. Luckily i have Matt to help me along. I dont know what i would do without him. I would be pretty lost thats for sure! AHHH we are having a baby!!!! woop woop
Welp we are off to Arizona in the morning for Thanksgiving!

His Big Race

Im laggin behind again already! but matt ran his half marathon the saturday before halloween (or the day of halloween in utah) I was kind of nervous because the couple weeks before his race he was working insanely hard at work and wouldnt come home until around 3 in the morning! but he pulled if off so well! it was a costume run, he didnt dress up because he was worried about running and finishing! He did amazing for a first timer... 13 miles in 2 hours and 14 minutes! i met him at checkpoints and cheered him on and passed  him some dried apricots for some energy! 
bright and early around 7 stretching for the kickoff! 
here he is at mile 5 
only mile 5 and he is feeling great! 
about mile 7 and i was too worried about taking a picture and i almost missed the apricot hand off
mile 11 and he caught me by suprise! but he is so happy still!! wait till the finish line...
 yeah this guy ran the whole 13 miles barefoot!! crazy kid! my feet were freezing and i had ugg boots on! 
crossing the finish line. he wasnt much of a happy camper. I kept calling his name and he knew i was there but kept focus on the finish line! i had to chase him down after and he was so loopy it was really cute actually! 

HE EVEN GOT A MEDAL!! and a pretty cool t-shirt that looks like a harley davidson design. pretty cool! happy halloween!

The Outdoors

So Matt and I love our walks up Rock Canyon. We love walking to the little spring. It such a beautiful day, and probably one of the last ones that we could take a stroll outside. I cant wait for the snow though. Wish i could snowboard but i have a better priority to focus on right now! 

 Don't judge...I am Pregnant! (this was a couple weeks ago so i wanna say about 16 weeks along)
the natural spring! a couple was there when we got there just hovering and so we walked a little further until we spied that they made the move. Oh love birds i just wanted a sip from the spring! thanks for moving! 

I love our little walks. It makes the perfect Sunday activity. I just want to take back what i use to say about Utah being an ugly desert, that was false! Utah has its pretty parts!
