Sunday Shenanigans

November 17, 2017

Brady has been substitute teaching a Sunday school class for the youth. Our ward put on a special marriage & family class and invited any adults who were interested. The marriage class was 8 weeks long, and the family class was an additional 8 weeks long. Brady subbed for 16 weeks and boy did I miss him!! I love Sunday school but sitting alone makes me sad. Haha, I love being with Brady as much as I can be these days and I knew it would be overwith soon but it felt like forever!!

Brady’s done now and I’m so glad to have my husband back. Church is much better when he’s there with me :) Also, I got this new dress ^^^ and I love it. It’s long sleeve but it’s so comfy!! We also decided to walk to Church this day and the heels I wore made my feet hurt. It was too beautiful outside to not walk anyway.

We finished the Book of Mormon!

Brady and I finished reading the Book of Mormon! We kind of started reading when we first got married. Then we worked on it here and there throughout the last four years. I can’t believe we finally finished it! :) I’m so proud of us. It’s a long book. The only long book I’ve ever read (fat books intimidate me), and now we’re going to be reading in the Old Testament! I can’t wait. It’s going to be so much great!

I didn’t really care about school/seminary when I was in 10th grade and that is the year we studied the Old Testament, so it’s nice to actually care this time! ;) Haha Brady and I love spending this time together, and sometimes we’ll ask each other questions or what we liked most about the recent chapter we just read. It’s amazing how the Holy Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Temple all connect. It’s amazing and I love it so much!!

I love Sunday’s!! They’re such a great day. I’m thankful that God intended the 7th day to be a day of rest! I sure need it every single week. 
 
Since today is Pioneer Day (in Utah), we sang some “pioneer” songs during the Sacrament meeting at Church yesterday. During the Sacrament, I like to look up the scriptures at the end of the song. This scripture specifically stood out to me:
 

36 And now, verily I say unto you, and what I say unto one I say unto all, be of good cheer, little children; for I am in your midst, and I have not forsaken you;

37 And inasmuch as you have humbled yourselves before me, the blessings of the kingdom are yours.

38 Gird up your loins and be watchful and be sober, looking forth for the coming of the Son of Man, for he cometh in an hour you think not. 

39 Pray always that you enter not into temptation, that you may abide the day of his coming, whether in life or in death. Even so. Amen.

 These verses are found in The Doctrine and Covenants section 61 verses 36-39.

 
I really like verse 38.

I got the #afterchurchziegs idea from Stephanie Nielson of NieNie Dialogues. She does one for her family each week on Sunday’s.

 
In all honesty, things are going so well for Brady and I. I feel like not only our relationship, but our friendship is getting stronger and stronger. My desire to spend my extra time with him is growing more each day! I always wondered why none of my friends wanted to stick around but I actually had my very best friend right in front of me. He’s sticking around forever ;)

 
I just love my husband and this picture and just life and Sunday’s and God. hehe xoxo

Happy Anniversary!!

July 13, 2017

Brady and I had a really relaxed anniversary! It was on a Monday which was totally a bummer but whatevs, we had a good time! We stayed local and relaxed at home. We watched something together, and then for dinner, we went to the Cheesecake Factory Mmmmm!! So stinkin’ good! Brady had a gift card that we used. Thank goodness! That place can be expensive!! But so good.

I still can’t believe we’ve been married 4 years. 4 YEARS. I know many of you out there think that it’s nothing, but to me, that’s a long time. That’s 2 missions!! ;) I’m learning to find who I am with Brady. That probably doesn’t make any sense but I’ve struggled to leave my single life with friends behind, and be with my husband friend more! Not that it’s wrong to have friends when you’re married but I struggled with this life changing event. I love Brady with all of my heart, and we have endured so much. But when I finally decided for myself that it was time to change my nutrition and exercise habits, it literally changed everything in my life.

My relationship and friendship with Brady became stronger. I started to cherish, more, the time that we spent together. When I had free time, I would spend as much of it with him that I could before he had to go to work or something. I haven’t given Brady enough credit, and on this blog it looks like I battle this life alone, but it’s not true. Brady is the only person who has been through every teeny tiny thing with me. Like when I worked ALL of my hours for 2 months straight, with zero panic attacks OR missing work. He held me that one time I cried all day because I was physically feeling so depressed.

He is my everything and does everything, just for me. I’m grateful he is mine, and forever!!


The day before our anniversary (Sunday), we went to Church and then to my grandparents’ home for a birthday bbq. My grandparents’ birthday are 2 days apart so it was fun to celebrate both of them! Because of this, we also got to see our Lucy girl. We just love her so much and miss her everyday but are so grateful for her “foster family,” my grandparents & aunt.
