Since this blog is mostly for me. ill be talking to myself a little. Remember that song by Avalanche city? "love love love" also "see you soon" by coldplay ? yea well they're calling my name today. and so are all my pics in the "me and ky" folder. I cannot stop looking at them and thinking..."wow 24 days...and this man that has made me happier than anyone i've ever know is leaving. for two years!" The thought is really overwhelming me a bit. but Im also sooo excited! we both need to grow and experience life and i am sooo excited to see what will happen in two years. I can't wait to watch him grow through letters of his experiences. I can't wait till August 2014 when we reunite and things will be even better than they are now. That gives me hope. the three week mark is hard. Not wanting it to come while at the same time just thinking, can we rip the band aid off and get this next two years rolling? I am just so grateful to have had the past two years together. They have FLOWN by which makes me hope the next two fly by also. Kyler has taught me so much, bu mostly just to be happy no matter what. If ky has something happen that i think aw that would make me sad why aren't you sad? he replies "I love to be happy, I choose to be happy because it's not worth it to be sad." wow...could he get any wiser? And almost every "happiest moments" in my life have been with him. Every time i think about getting sad because he's leaving, i think of the people in Ukraine, and think about how MY ky will bring the gospel to their lives and it is VERY heart warming. That is what gets me through. I am so blessed to have this love. and....let the journey begin

It's official, the love of my life and best friend is going to be spending two years in....UKRAINE! This day was unbelievably amazing! I have never felt more at peace and happy in my whole life. Given i was very emotional,( I cried more than anyone there) and I am going to miss him more than anything, I am honestly not afraid for him to leave. I love him so much I do not mind at all sharing him with other people so that he can teach the gospel. I made an amazing video of all the footage from his call. I hope to be able to upload it soon.
The fam clan. I love these people, so dear to my heart.
Throw in my favorite boy, a dirtbike, 70 degree weather, a beautiful river, and paper bag lunches and what do you get? An absolute dream date. Ky and I got his dirtbike out for the first ride of the summer and wow...it was blissful!! I could not love spending time with ky more than I do, and my absolute favorite is our dirtbike times. I mean I can't resist, cuddlin up to this cute kid, surrounding ourselves with nature bein silly, and lunch on the river, it doesn't get better than that. I finally bought me a helmet and i LOOOOVE it !!! I've been waiting to find the right one for a year!! Best day ever. Besides the day Kyler opened his mission call.
haha love that pic
Claire gets all the hook ups for the nanny jobs in Rexburg and it is sooo not fair. So to be fair I tag along :) I love children soo much. It is something I've always known but recently, I have embraced it more and it is my passion. So if anyone knows any nanny jobs anywhere in the country next spring, or even here in Rexburg for this summer PLEASE let me know:)

My friend Emalee got a "Smash Book" for easter. I was very curious about this book. And then when i got a look at it i was excited beyond words! It is the cutest thing ever. A book filled with awesome scrapbook designed paper that you just put whatever you wants in there, movie tickets, love notes, qoutes, ideas you want to do in the future, recipes that are amazing,snapshots, whatever you want! And it was only ten dollars. So here it is ladies and gents
This is the page i put our movie tickets from "This means War" on. super fun right? I will fit tonz more on this page but for now.. just this :) I wrote "Date night, Team Tuck!" because that is who i wanted her to choose in the movie, and all of our friends that were there.
Especially since I only have about three months with ky before his mish, i don't want to forget anything:)
Any who, you should get one. It's an awesome way to catch your memories in the moment.

I suddenly realized that it was the end of January and that reminded me of Valentines day! I was very glad i remembered this on January 31 because i wanted to do the 14 days of Valentines Day for Ky this year. Again i swear I am the cheesiest girl. But it has been a great couple days and Ill keep u posted on the last 12 days.
Day 1: I colored this lovely pic and put it on a powerade because he loves his blue powerade. So for a cheesy saying i wrote "we are a great ""power"" couple!"
Day 2: all i did was put a plate of amazing cookies in his car that said thanks for being my cookie. :) haha i laugh just thinking how awful am at this. But my point is just to do simple things everyday. its the simple things that matter right? ahhh

This year we only had the boys, Jake and Jon, plus the lovely DeeAnna. With my two sisters out East i was left to fend for myself! But everything turned out great. It was super fun, I even got to be Santa's helper which i have been begging to do for a long time! Christmas included: Amazing non stop food from mom, remote control helicopters, ginger in a reindeer outfit, a 6 hour game of Monoply, (more like a battle) which Jacob won, and new movie excursions: Missions Impossible IV and Sherlock Holmes II. Great Christmas!
Yes i would say it was a very merry Christmas and i am very blessed.
And thats the confession of my dreams thus far.
This is my attempt at blogging...we'll see how it goes. I am hoping it motivates me to take more pictures and make the most out of every experience. If anyone has any suggestions, or advice, it will be greatly appreciated.
I guess in order for you to be interested in my now, you need to know about my before.
I just finished my first semester of college at BYU-I. and it was a great experience. I learned a lot about myself, and the future I want. I have a love for music, kids, the deeper meaning of things, the gospel, my family, mom especially, and my amazzzzing boy. All of which will be properly introduced in due time I hope.
Hope you enjoy!
