"A final gospel truth that will contribute to our understanding of and hence the quality of our marriages relates to the degree in which we involve the Savior in our relationships as husbands and wives. As designed by our Heavenly Father, marriage consists of our first entering into a covenant relationship with Christ and then with each other. He and his teachings must be the focal point of our togetherness. As we become more like him and grow closer to him, we will naturally become more loving and grow closer to each other"

My NeW fAvOrItE hObBiE!!!!
I have always loved those fun cute watches that every girl in Utah seems to own! So I decided this week that I would learn to make them! I LOVE IT! I have only done the two shown below, the brown one I've had for awhile.
Anyway I just think they are so cute! I'm going to place a order of beads and watch faces and start making these bad boys! And eventually maybe try to sell them for a much better price than what they normally sell for since I'm not a pro! Let me know what you think! And if you'd like I'd love to make you some! Any color you just say the word!

I love having the plain watch face so it can match with any band!

BLACK band- which I got to wear to church today matching my zebra print skirt!
And this is the brown one that I already had but went off it to get new ideas!

And my favorite one since i love love this color!

Anyway! Just something fun that I've been up to this weekend!

Our new home!!!

Finally back in the Internet world! Rob and I just made a big move out to Hurricane so we were out of touch for a few weeks with all of our blogging buddies! And since my dearest friend moved WAY to far away from me this post is to update her with our lives and new house and adventures!

We had a wonderful opportunity to move to Hurricane and live in such a wonderful home and neighborhood! We honestly couldn't be happier! Since we both grew up in such small towns we really missed that feel you get from a town where its always so peaceful and you can always have the smell of the fresh cut grass and hay! One of my VERY favorite things! Not that St. George is a HUGE place but it was to much for me! I feel like I'm home.. only no one knows about my life therefore there is no drama!! So its perfect!

Let me give you the tour!!
**Note.. since we've only been here a short time I haven't had time to hang photos or decorate the way I'd like to - so don't judge me!!**

This is the Master Bathroom! Kinda hard to tell but it really is a good size and MUCH bigger than our old place!
Please ignore the towel NOT in the hamper! But this is just our new dresser in our bedroom!
And here we have our bed! And yes under the bed is a balloon! Rob just had a birthday and that's where he chose to keep his balloons! And here its hard to tell but our bedroom really is quite large as well! Tons of extra space and the closet is a great size for all our crap!
The view into our living room from the upstairs! Aghh - I swear it will look better once its decorated! But for now Heather this picture will have to do!
Our Kitchen! We got to paint the walls how we wanted and we only did the kitchen and one wall in the living room for now! And the other half of this picture is a large dining area to the right!
Guest bathroom..
..and guest vanity area! (there are actually two of these vanity areas downstairs with huge storage space and closets)
To the right of this picture is our washer and dryer space but i didn't think anyone would care to see our washer and dryer so just use your imagination here! And just so you know the color scheme is CORAL and brown!! Rob and my brother argued it was PINK! But its not! These pictures are just deceiving!
Also in our living room we have a random TEAL table that I've painted and haven't decided what to do with it yet! So for now it just sits in the living room and serves as a great table for Rob to do homework!
From the front entrance.. you can see down the hall which goes to the guest bedroom, bathroom, laundry room, garage and kitchen! We joked that the stairway space reminded us of the shape of Nevada! So we'd always have my family in mind! (use your imagination.. can you see NV!!?) Also of coarse we have the TEXAS STAR finally hanging up!! We're proud of that one!

And not pictured was the garage since it just stores our toys, four wheeler, bikes and boxes! As well as the guest bedroom and the upstairs second room which is our computer/craft room where I spend my spare time working on projects!

We LOVE our new place and our new ward is great! We are surrounded by great people out here and are really excited to spend the next long while out here!

As far as everything else... Robbie is back in school so we are back to seeing each other maybe once a week! Our life is so busy but honestly its the best! We are so blessed in SO many ways! I've been on a high lately just thinking of how lucky we REALLY are. Besides that my bestie lives miles and mile away and there are days that I am very down and miss her - I really can't complain!

Just so ya'll know..

The post below about all my dizziness and what not.. the solution is NOT because I am pregnant! (although we do wish that were the case... its not!)

I've been to 3 doctors/specialist and have 2 more to go to so they can get to the bottom of whatever is going on. Even though our co-pay isnt much I still wish I didn't have to pay them just to have the Dr. refer me to a DIFFERENT doctor....

As my dizziness and headaches worsen each day I have faith I will find a Doctor who can help me understand whats going on! And after we figure all this out and how we are going to fix it I can then go back to the "women dr." ;) and she can help us understand more about the FREAKING depo shot I got that has been the start of my problems!

Until then! I will continue to live each day feeling like I just stepped off the Yo-Yo at a carnival and at any given moment my head may bust.
(not so fun)
