Jordon was finally sworn into the Army on Friday. He will be leaving in June for basic training. And he will be gone for seven months.. That is a long time..
I am so proud of him and excited to stand by his side in this new journey.

True Beauty

Obviously Ellie gets her beautiful smile from her mother.


My sister is getting married in June and I am her maid of honor. She has had her bridesmaid dresses for awhile and at the time I was a little...smaller... than I am now. I recently tried it on and it fits, I will just pass out walking down the aisle. I have decided that it is time to practice some self discipline, starting this morning.. No more junk food. But I threw in some potato chips and cheese fries. But thats ok right?

I love food. I am a fast food junkie. It's terrible. I loove big greasy burgers and hot dogs. Pretty much everything I cook has a stick of butter in it. Carl's Jr. is my weakness.. The Guacamole Burger and Jalapeno chicken burger are my FAVORITE.
mmm.. Delish.

I am going to blame some of this weight gain on Jordon helping out at the stockton station. That really does not help. I seriously have no self discipline. It is terrible. But I am really going to try.

After having Ellie a lot of the weight came off pretty easily, but there has been an extra 15lbs that refuses to leave. But I'm not going to lie I havent tried that hard. I will let you know how it goes.. Wish me luck.

Queen Of Throwing Tantrums

I'm sure you would never guess that this little girl has some attitude. She has you all fooled.
When Ellie is being naughty we first have a chat with her telling her its not ok to do whatever she did. If she continues her bad behavior we send her to the corner for about a minute. Usually that works and she starts to obey. But there have been a few occasions were she thought it was funny to continue being a stinky pants. So then we send her to her room. You would think we were abusing her if you could hear her. Let me just tell you we never leave her in her room for more than 3 minutes. By the time I come and let her out she has ripped all of her clothes out of her closet thrown her toys everywhere, and to top it off, she takes her diaper off. Poopy or clean. After she has done all of this she will sit next to the door crying saying, 'Mommy I love you. Mommy your the best. Mommy I need you!'
WHAT A PILL! I do not know where she learns this stuff.
When I go get her I can't help but laugh, she is two years old! All I have to say is I am in big trouble in the years to come!

That is Me and My Husband. Yeah, I'm taking him down with me. Jordon has been out of a job since September. SEPTEMBER that seems soo long ago. He has had jobs off and on, but nothing that has been paying the bills easily. With Jordon not having a job our whole schedule is whacked. When he had a job it helped get us on some sort of a schedule. It would help me clean, do laundry etc. Anything to keep me busy while he was at work. Now its just like meh, not today... Its defiantly hard to stay motivated. Jordon has been trying to join the Army but one thing after another has been happening to delay it.
I don't know what to do I try and get us to get up and do stuff but, ugh I don't know. We are lazy. We sit at home and pretty much do nothing. It's defiantly been wearing on me.
I don't know what to do anymore. I feel like I hit a wall and we are just stuck. Good thing I have Ellie to keep my spirits up.

Family Pictures

A sweet family in our ward has there own photography studio. He taught our temple prep class and she is the primary president. For a gift to us for being sealed, they gave us a free photo shoot. I just have to tell you they are the sweetest couple you will ever meet. I love their guts. It was so fun getting our pictures done and Jordon and I thought it might be a little awkward but they made us very comfortable. They couldn't get enough of Ellie, & Ellie did so good I was so proud. Here are a few samples.
