A love like this... July.25.2011

Its not an anniversary. Just one of those days where he is on my mind (well more so than usual). Where everywhere I look I see something that reminds me of him.

His smile-words can't describe the joy I get from seeing that!

Him being goofy and how he can always get me to laugh :)

How even though we've been apart for over a year he still can make me smile in his letters.

How when people ask me how he is doing I get all giddy inside....

....its a love like this that is worth waiting for.

He totally completes me. where I am rough he is smooth. where I am loud he is quiet. where I am not confident he is firm. But the best part is that he not only completes me he compliments me which is what love is. I've not only found my other half who fills my gaps in life but also someone who brings out my features! We take each other's qualities and brighten them so that they can shine.

I never imagined I could feel this way towards someone, each day the love I have for him grows just a little bit more-I didn't know that could happen. I thought I loved him before he left but I've fallen more in love with him while he has been out.

Family time July.24.2011

Tragedy hit this weekend...my Uncle came into town this weekend from Utah and has now made me look like a whitey next to him :( ahh man all that time I've been thinking I was tan and then my uncle comes here and BAM I'm a whitey-ah shucks :( p.s. I'm excited to go to Utah in a couple of weeks so I can get my sun on ;)

It is always great to have a yummy full dinner with those that I love! Nana, Uncle Steve, and my mommie :) We had a big ol thanksgiving dinner (ya we know its July-we are crazy like that lol!) But boy oh boy was it delicious (not like I expected anything else from my mommie!) After dinner we moved over to the couch-where I learned I wasn't tan (still sad about that!) and we chatted about what's new and looked at pictures of my bro and sis filling in my nana and uncle all about what they are up to :) As the night ended we said goodbye and took photos (of course-its kinda my thing if you haven't noticed lol) gotta love my mom with her bro and mom (oh and my nana's afro is fantastic!!!-love her!!) We may be small in numbers but boy is our love strong for each other :) I love visiting with my family!

Pioneer Weekend July.22-23.2011


Posted by Picasa
My stake always has a celebration for the Pioneer weekend down at Camp Nisqually. This weekend the sun actually made an appearance here (thank heavens!) so it was perfect weather for the baseball tournament they have! I'm not a big baseballer so I watched the little kiddos instead :) It was fun playing and chasing them around while the adults practiced for their game since their competition didn't show up they just got practice time for their game on Saturday morning.


Saturday morning I went with two of my friends (Kariah & Afton) with their kids out garage saling :) It was tons of fun and we scored some really good deals (my mom may think otherwise but I like the chair I found -for free by the way! I'm going to get crafty and cover up the cat marks! ;p)

After our shoppingg we met the guys (aka their husbands) at Cabela's (while the girls are out shopping the guys go and get sling shots to shoot down at the camp lol) then we went to Panera Bread for lunch *first time for me* it was yummy, I got a ceasar salad and creamy tomato soup (odd for a hot summer day but boy did it taste good!)


then we headed back to the campsite where they had big blow up toys for the kiddos and volleyball games then it was time for the big championship game for the baseball. It was Parkland Ward (my ward-woot woot!) vs Lake City (boo lol)


Well after 7 or so innings we ended up losing to them...sad day...11-1 but we had fun and we may not have pro players like their team had but they seemed to have fun playing :) After such a long day I was totally exhausted but I definitely had a fantastic day and weekend :) I think I'm addicted to garage saling lol ( I blame Afton and Kariah lol)

Bowling with the Schott's July.22.2011


Posted by Picasa

today I got to take Nate's younger sibs to Paradise to bowl :) Man is his little sister Mireya a pro-she beat me and Landon in the first game! she was getting strikes and spares right and left! Then we played the second game and I regained my pride lol *can't have a six year old beating me lol*

It was tons of fun to hang out with them-I love those two :)

Bowling with the Marinis July.15.2011


Posted by Picasa

So kids bowl free during the summer (how awesome is that? i wish i was still considered a kid :/ oh well!) So since I had Miss Mireya today and Ember called me up and said "let's go!" so we headed over to Paradise bowling and hit up the lanes :)


Little Kenzie used the ramp and got strikes galore-she is a pro! And also found the air thing where you cool off your hands but instead she used it to blow up her hair ;)


Bryce and Zack wanted to be big kids and roll the ball themselves-had to get bumpers up so they didn't hit the gutters lol!


Alec, Wyatt, and Mireya all played really well and enjoyed hitting the pins down!


i would say bowling time was a success :)

Marlee my love :) July.14.2011

So this lovely lady up above (look up!) is amazing. No words can describe her but here I will try a few: fantastic, lovely, incredible, chef, sweetheart (get my point?)
I get to be lucky enough to see her face every sunday night (well unless her internet hates us :/) on our skype dates-we swap stories about our boys and what our letters said for the week!
So on my boys Hump day (the day when they have been out for a year)


I opened my mailbox and found this! Marlee had sent me cookies & a sudoku (her dad gave her this intense one and I said I wanted to try it!) for my Hump Day gift (see isn't she just a sweetie!)



Marlee you are amazing, thank you so much for my Hump Day gift :)


I love our skype dates and our daily texts :) Oh and can't forget our year resloution (we made a resolution before the new year to say one good thing we like about ourselves each sunday on our skype dates-we are over halfway through the year dearest!)

Poo at the Zoo? July.13.2011


Posted by Picasa
So at our zoo (Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium) they are having the "scoop on poop" which is basically on the "lovely" facts on poop from all the animals inside the zoo-if smelling it wasn't enough lol! We went to the "scoop on poop" exhibit and checked out all the interesting facts :) We watched a zoo show about all the cool animals that live around the world.

Saw animals galore! Stopped at the camels to take a picture (it fit perfectly with Elder Schott's hump day coming up!) Got to see the Tigers (RAWR!) and the Elephants (only saw their rears lol) Got to touch star fishies :) The day at the Zoo was fantastic (and actually sunny which was awesome!) Animals are stinky but great fun to see and learn about! Thank you Craig, Jenna, Kaziah, & Mireya for an awesome day :)

Marini Time July.7.2011




Posted by Picasa

Well this week was our stake's Cub Scout's Day Camp and Ember (these kiddo's momma) is the Primary President in my ward so she was the one to go so I got to spend my day with the little ones :)


I headed over there at 8 o'clock & we spent the morning playing with toys and watching some kid movie on Nick.


Mac and cheese for lunch (my i mean the kids favorite ;p)


Then we headed outside to play in the dirt, "go high" on the swings, and zoom down the slide! Zack,Bryce, and Kenzie are adorable-totally made my afternoon by playing with them! Zack and Bryce got picked up by their Aunt around 2 to go to Grandma's house so it was just Kenzie and I then! We climbed up the rock wall on the play set, went down the slide together and she dug me a sand pit lol she is too cute!


Marini Time is always fun :)

Halfway gone July.17.2011

So since Sunday has come and gone and my final scripture reading for Elder Schott's first year is now on its way to San Antonio, Texas I am finally able to take a photo of my scripture journal being half way done :)
Looks so amazing to see it halfway done...We have read so much already while Elder Schott has been out...coincidentally enough we finished the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price all within the first year so we started out with the New Testament on the day 1 of the second year :)

Elder Schott-we have grown so much while you have been gone, thank you so much for your suggestion to read our scriptures each night and swap each week :) I love how much we've grown spiritually and how much of an example you are to me! Can't wait to see what this year has in store for us :)

Desires of the heart July.19.2011

Thoughts have been spinning around my head at a mile a minute. Desires of my heart are trying to burst out-some of them good but I'm not perfect and I'll be the first to admit it so some of them not so great.

I among most people want things we can't have, I've tried really hard to be better at this because I know its not the right thing but its hard when you have the desires in your heart.

Some desires are bad, they lead you to think of yourself as lower than you are...

I was thinking about desires today and how they have led me to change my life in one way or another.

With all the negatives pushing down on me and coming to my breaking point I desired to focus on the desires I've had all my life.

  • Become a pediatric nurse, I've always wanted to work in the medical field and helping out with children is like the icing on the cake :)
  • Getting an education-not only in school but within the gospel too. I've always felt not good enough when compared to others in my sunday school class because I didn't know all the scripture stories and what made it worse was that I've been a member my whole life. I realize now that mostly its my own fault for either not paying much attention as a kiddie or not absorbing all the amazing gospel my parents and teachers placed in front of me!
  • I've always wanted to be a mother, I've looked at my amazing mother and her example in my life and I don't even think I'll be able to compare to her the day I am blessed with a child of my own. To bring a life into this world to nurture and help grow into the man/woman they are meant to be is one of the greatest blessings I could ever imagine.
I found this Talk by Elder Ballard on Mothers & Daughters-I wanted to blog about Elder Oaks talk on Desire but I found this one and it hit me as I was reading it so I wanted to share it with you all :) My commentary will be in the [brackets]
"Sisters, we, your brethren, cannot do what you were divinely designated to do from before the foundation of the world. We may try, but we cannot ever hope to replicate your unique gifts. There is nothing in this world as personal, as nurturing, or as life changing as the influence of a righteous woman."
[Women are unique individuals, given special gifts that only they can pass on to their children]

"I understand that some of you young women do not have mothers with whom you can discuss these issues. And many of you women do not presently have daughters in your lives. But because all women have within their divine nature both the inherent talent and the stewardship to mother" [I am so grateful to have been influenced by my mother, her presence has definitely help me grow into the woman I am today. But I agree with Elder Ballard on the fact that ALL of us have that inherent talent and the stewardship to mother-its a gift we were given from our Heavenly Father that I truly am grateful for!]

"Young women, your mothers adore you. They see in you the promise of future generations. Everything you accomplish, every challenge you overcome brings them pure joy. And likewise your worries and heartaches are their worries and heartaches."

[I like to think that I only bring happiness and joy into my mother's eyes but eh I know that's not always the case, I may be the reason for turning of hair color :/ But even though I cause her stress and heartache she still has trust in me to leave and go off to college in a different city, stay out late when I'm on a date, and make my own decisions. The biggest key that I'm grateful for is trust, she has that characteristic pretty much covered when it comes to her kids I believe, I hope one day to be able to hold that much love in my kids knowing that I've raised them right and that they know the difference between right and wrong that way I can have that trust in them too.]

It is, unfortunately, all too easy to illustrate the confusion and distortion of womanhood in contemporary society. Immodest, immoral, intemperate women jam the airwaves, monopolize magazines, and slink across movie screens—all while being celebrated by the world. The Apostle Paul spoke prophetically of “perilous times” that will come in the last days and specifically referenced something that may have seemed particularly perilous to him: “silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts” (2 Timothy 3:1, 6). Popular culture today often makes women look silly, inconsequential, mindless, and powerless. It objectifies them and disrespects them and then suggests that they are able to leave their mark on mankind only by seduction—easily the most pervasively dangerous message the adversary sends to women about themselves.

[Can I just say this was said perfectly? Women that dress immodestly, sleep around with multiple people, and speak inappropriate language are celebrated in our world today. It disgusts me to be honest, the feeling of having to lower your standards to get attention makes me feel sick. The desire to get attention from a "hot guy" and doing whatever it takes to receive a nod or smile from him is not worth losing your integrity. I've felt low before when no guy has looked at me the way other girls get looked at, but you have to realize that if he is only looking at your outward appearance, he is not worth changing yourself for. Find yourself a man who respects you for you. I used to always joke that I wanted to find a guy who still loved me even if he was in the other room-mostly because it would prove to me that he wasn't just interested in my outward appearance but also has fallen in love with me. Inside and out :) ]

"And so, my dear young women, with all my heart I urge you not to look to contemporary culture for your role models and mentors. Please look to your faithful mothers for a pattern to follow. Model yourselves after them,not after celebrities whose standards are not the Lord’s standards and whose values may not reflect an eternal perspective. Look to your mother. Learn from her strengths, her courage, and her faithfulness. Listen to her. She may not be a whiz at texting; she may not even have a Facebook page. But when it comes to matters of the heart and the things of the Lord, she has a wealth of knowledge. As you approach the time for marriage and young motherhood, she will be your greatest source of wisdom. No other person on earth loves you in the same way or is willing to sacrifice as much to encourage you and help you find happiness—in this life and forever."

[This was said perfectly too-our mothers may not be all high techy like we are but they know what matters most. Heed unto their words, their example, and their love...it is that which will help us through our lives-they center their life on Christ and we as the next generation need to follow in their footsteps.]

Love your mother, my young sisters. Respect her. Listen to her. Trust her. She has your best interests at heart. She cares about your eternal safety and happiness. So be kind to her. Be patient with her imperfections, for she has them. We all do.

[In our rough times, in our accomplishments, our mothers are always there, to give you a shoulder to cry on, a ear for listening, and always has kind words to share with you. Sometimes it is hard to be patient but you have to remember that she may be close to perfect but she too is human, she may not always have to say what you want to hear but she always cares about you!]

[I'm grateful for my mother and all that she does for me, she loves me unconditionally and has been aside me in all my decisions, mother I love you!]

My last goal that I cannot wait for the day that this occurs is:

Marrying in the temple-I've always loved the pictures of the temple, which is why I had to make a collage of some of them because they are all so BEAUTIFUL! The feeling I get when I'm on temple grounds is indescribable, I love the joy that overwhelms my being and motivates me to become better :) To marry the man I love for time and all eternity makes me the happiest person in the world. Finding that one person you can't think of your life without, and not just for this lifetime but for all eternity, it seems amazing just to think that I will have him to stand beside me for the rest of my life!

Just a blink ago...July.17.2011

July 17, 2009
It seems like just the other day I was nervous as heck and couldn't decide what to wear for our first date...
I played around with like ten outfits asking all my friends for their opinions and finally decided on one :)
Well I happened to get ready oh about two hours earlier than Nate had said he would pick me up (figures lol) so I sat around trying to pass the time..watched some tv (I don't remember what I watched lol) then I walked around trying to pass the time. Didn't work so well :( Then it came, the time I've been waiting for all week (ya he had called me up earlier in the week so it led me to freak out all WEEK long-thank you Nate)..the date that would change everything!
With my outfit all ready to go & me nervous as no tomorrow there was a knock at the door and there he was (he actually came-a part of me figured he was going to cancel on me!) Then we left in his big blue truck (there is only a picture of me because I figured it was too early for a photo of "us" lol-just in case it didn't work out :/) But anyways! We drove over to the movie theaters and we parked in what became "our spot", behind the theater :)
We got our drinks (so he joked about sharing and I was like...ugh..ummm...can i get my own? *stupid girl* lol) But we found our seats and kinda chit chatted while we waited for the movie to start!
May I say our parents are mean?? Oh ya its true, both of our parents had been to The Proposal before and Nate's suggested he take me to it and then I asked my mom about it seeing if I should say yes to a movie date to that and she laughed and was like "oh ya that's a good one"...so they say that movies are a great way to break the ice..oh boy did it! so we are watching the movie and then the part where they are naked and run into each other comes on and it just so happens that we were both taking a drink of our sodas...and we watched that then had to try really hard to keep our soda in our mouths lol! We both looked at each other and laughed :) It was an awkward moment turned good :)
I must say this movie has now became a memorable one for us & I'm sure we've watched it a handful of times too :) I love it for one and its what started my relationship with Nate makes it even better :) After the movie Nate took me out for ice cream at Cold Stone. He laughed at me for not being able to decided (in my defense there is a lot of options!) and then choosing mint ice cream with white chocolate chips (haha yes I do remember that, can't remember what was on tv but my ice cream flavor ;p) We sat outside since it was actually a hot July evening (unlike this year's) and ate our ice cream and just talked...I remember going from sitting awkwardly and trying to find that right position where I felt comfortable to be sitting and talking to him to sitting there for two hours and chatting the night away. We ended up talking past 11 which was when Cold Stone closed, that poor employee who had to come out and break up our night lol I may have given her an evil glare (oops!) But Nate being the sweet guy he is suggested we didn't end our night and walk around and talk instead (oh man my heart leaped for joy) I am usually scared to be outside at night in public (with all the crazy's out there!) But with Nate by my side I felt totally safe :) We then walked around for what seemed like forever just talking and getting to know each other, finding out that we had a lot in common :) Before midnight (that was my curfew) he drove me home, as I sat in the truck and we talked some more I honestly don't think there was ever a moment I didn't have a smile on my face-ya he does that to me :) We pulled up to my driveway and then another awkward moment happened-do i kiss him or not? well to those who are reading i'll just let you know now, we didn't kiss lol instead we gave a quick hug lol and he was like I'll see ya on Sunday (awkward much lol)
Well two years has passed by since that day. WOW. I can't believe we've been together, not just together but growing closer each day. We may be states apart but it feels like he is right here whenever I open up a letter :) Next year at this time we be able to go out and actually celebrate our first date anniversary (AHHH i'm so excited!!)
But since we are apart I figured I'd send him a card :) I wrote him a note on the left and made up a timeline of our history on the right side :)
I found some Taco Bell sauce packets that had really cute sayings on them so I decided to craft up this:
I started our with a pink sticky note explaining how to open it lol, then under each sauce packet is a pink one explaining the note-how it applies to us :), then under that is green ones saying I Love You :) and under that is my note to him! Its a multi-layered card :)
Nate, I love you so much and I am so grateful that you asked me out two years ago, you took a chance on me and look how far we've come. I don't know how you do it but somehow you always know what to say to me, I've been definitely blessed in my life and I still haven't found the words to express my feelings for you, so for now I will just stick to our "I love you" :) Two years of you and me and many more to come :)

Happy Hump Day! July.14.2011

Who bounced out of bed this morning to mark off #365 on her calender???? THIS GIRL :)

Happy Hump Day Elder Schott!

I must say this is the best mark off/picture to date :)

A year ago today you entered the mission field to get prepped to teach the people of Texas!

I can't believe this day is finally here-I've looked forward to this day for a while ;)

Doesn't half way done look awesome?!?!? No more counting UP for me!!!

Counting down now baby!!!

Half way done with our two year journey Elder Schott-we have grown so much & learned about ourselves! I'm excited to see what comes this year...we are almost onto our 3rd book in our scripture set, i am starting my pre-nursing classes (i'm taking spanish too but shh Nate doesn't know-I want to surprise him when he gets home!), and you will be moving around Texas so oh the adventures you will have!

I can't wait till you get home Elder Schott!

Happy Birthday Dave July.6.2011

Happy Birthday old man ;p For all you who don't know this fella right here, its my mish's daddio :) This is Dave ( you may address him as Bro Schott lol-only us cool kids get to be on first name bases JK!)
Dave had his birthday on July 6th but with my ASL classes on wednesday night we didn't want to rush dinner so we had it on tuesday night instead!
We met up at Farelli's (pizza place) with Dave, Craig & his mom Bonnie, and my mom and I :)
Awesome conversation with some delicious cheese bread & pizza made for a fantastic night!
This picture was Dave opening up his card which had a "over the hill" ribbon in it ;)
The night was awesome :) I love Nate's dad-he is such an awesome father to all of his kids and I am so grateful he raised them with such firm faith in our church and with such kind hearts! One birthday down (the next one we will be ONE week away from his boy's return-can you say BEST GIFT EVER!?!?!) I love our chats via text (we say good morning each day-and he is always there for me whenever I have a rough day) I hope you had a fantastic birthday Dave :)

Going out with a BANG July.4.2011

Ok I admit...I don't really want to post pictures for this blog post-I really want to share with you guys some videos from that night :) But for your enjoyment I posted these few photos! I love how fireworks can light up the night sky!


Videos from my 4th of July experience-we went to John Child's show at the fish farm-I just love his shows-he sure knows how to put on awesome ones...definitely goes out with a bang!

She's a beauty July.5&6.2011

This is Savannah :) She is 4 months old and I get to be the lucky one to watch her this summer while her mom is off at work and dad is in school getting that edumacion thingy ;) I was super excited when they asked me to watch her on the days her dad Jeremiah has class!
Tuesday was the first day:
Mom & Dad left at 7:15 and she was out at 7:25 (after being fed she knocks out lol)
after watching a couple episodes of Reba I heard her crying...
a little diaper changing & bottle warming (which by the way I didn't get the bottle warmer machine to work so I used the good old fashion way of microwaving it-come on people I'm only 20, "old fashion" to me is microwave not boiling water :p)
After being filled with food she was out yet again!!!
So I watched a movie this time :)
Then right as she was getting up her dad came home!
Wednesday I got a bit more of Savannah time :)
Her mom put her to sleep right before they left & she slept till 9:30 but after that I was determined to keep her awake!
I changed her out of her PJ's to overalls (ever kid needs a pair of those!)
Did her hair -she looks like a kid from Whoville :)
After she ate we went for a stroll :) I was expecting her to fall asleep but she didn't-she loves walks! She loves all the pretty colors and looking out so we went on a 30 min walk which was nice! Stopped by a friend's house and she got to see his train room (this guy built a whole new house practically to set up his trains!) then we walked back and her dad was home :)
I'm loving my time with this little girl! I am so excited that I get to babysit her for the summer :) More pictures to come I'm sure :)

One 4th down...one to go :) July.4th.2011

With July 4th come and gone I can officially say 1 down and only 1 more to go :) I love this holiday and sure miss Nate being here to celebrate with me-but what he is out there doing is far more important and I support him for it :) I can't believe a year has already passed since this photo -->
You'd think my hair would have grown since then (sike!) I cut it into a bob in december and its just now growing back :) maybe by next 4th I'll have longer hair ;p


Well since he can't actually be here to take a photo with me I figured I'd put one up of the shirt I sent to him (I really hope he wore it!)

So my mom bought all of us 4th of July shirts this year-each couple got matching ones (I love the idea that Nate and I are already viewed as a couple! :) I can't wait till he is back so we can take our photos together once again!) Happy 4th to Everyone :) And to all mg's out there-one 4th of July completed or maybe its your last-woohoo :)






























4th of July Celebration July.4.2011


Posted by Picasa

I love this country :) I love waking up and knowing that I can be who I want to be!

i especiall love waking up to breakfast made by my mommie :) My mommie made blueberry pancakes with strawberries on the side and on a white plate (oh ya we go all out for holidays lol) then we got dressed for the day (in our patriotic shirts of course) and headed over to the Lakewood Towne Center for the movie Larry Crowne-it was really good, first one in a long time that was clean and enjoyable which was nice to watch :) Oh and guess what? the theater has recliner seats-for real! Big cushy red recliner seats-man I think I fell in love lol ;)

After our movie we shopped around for a bit at the stores which was fun!

Then we headed to Red Robin for some food-what's the 4th without a hamburger? All American girl right here!

Then we came home and chilled for a bit-I went out and pulled some weeds as my mom took a nap to prep herself for stayin up late lol

Then the time came-the sky started to get dark and we put our chairs in the car and headed to the firework show! It was fantastic, saw some new fireworks which was pretty cool :)

I had a fantastic fourth! Thank you mom for spending the day with me and making it awesome :)

Break the fast July.3.2011

Well in the spirit of the holiday my mom made up a flag cake (ya she's pretty crafty) for our ward's break the fast (we have one after each fast sunday). I picked the strawberries from a couple in my wards garden on saturday afternoon so we got to use fresh yummy ones on the cake! You know what is really sad-my mom making this delicious cake and her and I not being able to eat it...grr!! i bet it was super delicious too!

Oh and you can't forget your red,white,and blue outfits :)

my mom was mocking me about how I always "pose" so I had to prove her right BAHA :)


Hope you all had a fantastic Sabbath :)

Little Leaguers Championship July.2.2011


What better to do on the 4th of July weekend then watch America's favorite pastime? Alec Marini (one of my friend's kid) had a baseball game tournament on Saturday. It was in my neck of the woods (at Sprinker) so I got to go and watch some of his games :) Alec is getting SO good at baseball-he is really good at reacting to the ball and throwing it back in to the in-field and getting the player out!
Morgan (Alec's cousin) is up for a vacation visiting the family so we got to chat and chill at the game which was fun! She found my purse and enjoyed going through it taking it as hers lol

















Miss Kenzie (Alec's little sister) is adorable-such a cheeseball but I love her! She and daddy were watching the game :) Morgan and I took Kenzie and Bryce's (Alec's brother) hats and tried them on to see how they fit!! lol It was a fun day in the sun and I even got a bit of a burn but it was totally worth it :) Great job Alec and can't wait for next spring to watch you play again!
