So I take it back... sort of. for the past few weeks, all this royal wedding business has been driving me nuts. Every time i turned on the TV there was some lame countdown, or talk about the royal wedding, and i wasn't buying it. Until today. I watched a few highlights of the wedding, and can honestly say it was fun to watch! i absolutely LOVED her dress. she looked like, well, a princess!! the lace and the pleats, and the veil were all so perfect!! She was stunning. And Will looked so handsome in his uniform. It made me think of my wedding, and all the things i would have done differently. Obviously the little things i would change now don't matter, and I loved my wedding day, but i really do wish i had payed more attention to the small details. I was so eager to start our lives together, and ended up throwing a wedding together in like 6 weeks. i didn't do all the things I probably would have liked to, but the important things happened, and now Adam and I are sealed in the temple for eternity, and i wouldn't change that for the world. I can say that im glad that all the royal wedding hype is over, and although the reruns will be showing for weeks, people can now go one with their lives!! i do love weddings, and especially fairy tale endings.

i really dont like being lost. Since we moved to Winnipeg, I'v had to drive around by myself trying to get to different places, and Im seriously BAD with directions. I cant read a map to save my life, I'm not great with landmarks, and I get extreamly anxious, and I have this irrational fear that I'll never make it home again. So far that hasn't happened. Since being here, I have gone to a few places that should have taken me 20 minutes to get there and it ends up taking me over an can see why i think im never getting home. Half the time I'm wondering if I'm even in Winnipeg anymore... Theres this amazing and kind of creepy app called Latitude. You add people and actually track EXACTLY where they are. weird right? I think I need to get this so that when I'm lost, I can call people and they can tell me how to get home. A GPS would be a great buy. That is on my list for tomorrow. Now only if I can make it to the Costco without getting lost...

Thats All It Takes

I was having a semi- bad day today. You know when every little thing really gets to you, and everything seems so irritating?? dang, maybe I'm the only one who has those days. Oh well. That was the kind of day I was having. I was getting to the point where I was starting to feel sorry for myself, and I HATE that feeling.

Then Adam called.

He called to say nothing else, but "I love you."
And in that moment, my day turned around. All those little things suddenly weren't getting to me, and everything wasn't so irritating after all. Sometimes that's all it takes. A phone call, or maybe a note from someone who loves you to make you realize your day isn't nearly as bad as you thought.

So call someone you love. Who knows what kind of day they are having, and maybe your phone call will make them smile.

Tenley boo

"The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, for children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep. I’m rocking my baby and babies don't keep. ”
Ruth Hamilton

My baby is growing so fast! She has been in our lives for a short 4 months, but it feels as if I have never lived a day without her. As I write this, she is fast asleep, and has been for the last 3 hours. I have been so blessed with a baby that LOVES to sleep. 12 consecutive hours at night, and 2-3, three+ hour naps in the day.

But I miss her.

I can`t wait to hear her sweet little giggle when she wakes up, and then to see her HUGE smile when I go to get her from her crib. I LOVE my Tenley. She is everything we could ever ask for, and we are LUCKY that heavenly father has trusted us with this sweet little spirit.

a quick update

Im finally going to start blogging!! iv wanted to for so long, but haven't been able to figure out how to make my page perfect and cute... and as you can see it definitely is not perfect or cute, but it will have to do for now until i figure it out.
So many exciting things are happening in our lives right now, and i get way too busy with everyday life to let everyone know whats going on, so this will be a great way to keep friends and family updated!
Adam, Tenley and I are moving to Winnipeg next week, and we'll be there until September. Adam and I have moved around together a lot, but not since we've had Tenley so im anxious to see how well she adjusts to our new home for the summer. Shes so easy going and laid back that im thinking she will be just fine. This time of year is always so crazy for us, as we get ready to leave for another selling season. Adam is so great at staying calm and relaxed, and he never shows that he stressed... even though i know he really is. Although we are leaving our new home that I love, I always get pretty excited for the summer and i really like moving to a different city every year. it makes life interesting.
leaving our house in Calgary is kinda sad because I'v become obsessed with decorating and trying to make our house look cute. I dont think i have really decided what my 'style' is, but im slowly getting there. iv done a few little home projects and bought some things that im really happy with. There are a few pieces of furniture that iv found that i want to refinish so badly, but cant do much until we have nice weather and that doesnt look like it will be happening before we leave :( so that will all have to wait.
