Our First Christmas 12.25.13

First Christmas as Husband & Wife
Not our first Christmas together, but definitely our first time being able to wake up on Christmas morning together! We got to take part in the Derb's family traditions and then we got our Christmas PJ's from my mom! Spent Christmas morning with my family, watching the kiddos wake up and open all their gifts. Then we headed to the airport and got to spend the rest of the day with Nate's family! Such a fun holiday season! Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

Conference Weekend 10.4-5.13

 Conference weekend is a fun one to lounge out in our PJ's and watch and hear the words from the Apostles and Prophet! We got to go down to my sister's for the sessions this time!
My sister and her family do ice cream and waffles for breakfast, my first time trying that idea out and I have to admit, it ain't half bad! :)

 After the Priesthood session, the girls met the boys at JCW's for some milkshakes! We even let Jordan try in on the fun and he LOVED the ice cream. The Heffron side of him coming out ;)

Fashion Show 9.16.13

Nate's cousin, Katherine is taking a fashion class 
She asked if I'd be her model for her fashion show for a class project.
 I said yes!
Her them was card games
Her group chose Cranium and made me a dress, with shoes, headband and purse to match! 
Such a cute dress!
The fashion show was a fun experience & I loved it! 
Thanks Katherine for asking me-I had a blast strutting my stuff!

Fair & Carrie Underwood Concert 9.13.13

My mom and I on my WA visit went to the Washington State Fair-or as we know it-The Puyallup Fair.
Got our corn, scones, and mom even rode on the carousel!
But the best part of the night was attending the Carrie Underwood concert. Through all the years we've been going, this one was MY FAVORITE! I love Carrie, she is so talented and such a southern sweetheart! Thank you mom for an amazing weekend and birthday gift :)

Officially a Schott 9.13.13

Mom and I ran around Tacoma today getting my Social Security card & license changed so now I can say I am OFFICIALLY a Schott. Man, men have it easy when it comes to the whole business side of weddings haha! But all the paperwork is completed! My mom is awesome and a way good sport and put up with all the waiting with me-love you! Then she took me to Charley's-yummy sub joint at the Tacoma Mall. Then we went shopping-yahoo!! I love Maurices, got me some new clothes for my birthday! :) Fun filled day and it was only the beginning!

Traditions never die! 9.12.13

If you know me, you also know I love spaghetti. I have since I was a little girl which is why I when my parents asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday dinner, I'd always say "Old Spaghetti Factory". 
I have been coming here for my birthday since I was 6. 
That is 17 years!
I seriously love spaghetti haha oh and the ice cream at the end!
But really, the best part is the company-the Lee's joined my mom and I and we had a blast chatting it up!

Flight for 1! 9.12.13

This year I managed to make it to 1) the airport on time for my flight (cough Brandon ;) cough) and 2) to fly directly to WA (no Denver pitstops ;)) so I was one very happy girl!
Got to the airport and waited for my flight-surfed Facebook a bit and then boarded and two hours (ish) later, I walked off and met up with my mom! :)

Settebello's 9.12.13

I married a stud. 
He is a hottie, just look at him in that picture-I adore him.
Anywho, back to the point of this post, we got to go to our FAVORITE place today!
We went to Settebello's-an amazing pizza place and then right next door is gelato (delicious-I think YES!)
Hard to say goodbye to this man for the weekend but excited to head to WA! (plus that means he gets to keep all the leftovers ;p)

Sunday & Mission Calls 9.8.13

If you know me, you know I LOVE sleeping in-it might just be my favorite hobby so I am not a big complainer of 1:30 church, except the fact we get out at 4:30. But I try and look for positives.
I also love the fact that I get to hang with this guy of mine! It is awesome being able to have lazy mornings!
1:30 church also gives me enough time to get up and ready for the day. I swear 9 am church sometimes saw the ugly side of me haha!
So here is us all dressed up for church!
 Then afterwards we got to be apart of Britni opening up her mission call-South Dakota baby!
I love this girl, I am so glad I was able to be her roommate last year. It is true that people come into your life for a reason, she is such a sweetheart! I am so proud of her for her decision to go on a mission!

Swiss Days 8.31.13

Nate went with my bro and dad to a concealed weapons class so I went with the Derbs up to Midway for Swiss Days :) I love being an Aunt, so much fun getting to hang with the kiddos all day! We had giant "scones" (In Utah they call them scones but they are really Indian Fried bread-people from WA know what real scones are haha!) Then we watched the parade-got the kiddos lots of candy  :) Then we went and walked the aisles looking at all the cute things :) After we met up with the boys and had lunch at Chili's-super delish! After we went back to the Derb's to play games and hang out! Such a fun Saturday :)

Farmers Market 8.24.13

Last weekend before school starts so we figured we'd have some fun on the town! Friday we had Breanna (Nate's sis) come over for dinner and some tv time :) Then Saturday we met up with some of Nate's family and went to the farmers market. It was super fun, lots of little knick knacks to look at. We tried a lemonade with real peaches inside and Nate got some yummy ice cream sandwiches :) We had his cousins and mom come over for dessert and a movie later that night which was super fun!

Saying goodbye 8.16.13

Today was a sad day for all, we had to say goodbye to our beloved family member Charlie Schott. He was a fantastic friend, lover of fishing, and great example to all. It was hard to hear the news that Grandpa Schott had passed away just days before our wedding. We all really wanted him to be there, it ended up that Grandpa had other plans of making it to our wedding. He really was there in spirit! We drove down to Sandy Friday morning before the funeral service so we got to spend sometime with the family. Then we went and honored the man who gave us all great joy in our life! Grandpa Schott may be gone from this earth but he is back with the love of his life and is always in our hearts :)

Hello from the newlyweds :) We had a fantastic vacation to Spokane for our honeymoon! We spent our first night in Tacoma and then Sunday morning headed over to Spokane! We had a gorgeous view! We went and treated ourselves to a movie, dinner, shopping and even to Idaho to Silverwood for some fun (thanks to the Lee's for surprising us with those tickets!) We loved our honeymoon and were definitely sad to see it end but we are excited to head over and move into our first place :)

My SWEET surprise 8.3.13

I have the BEST fiance ever. Nate was supposed to be in Idaho for a family reunion this weekend. He had said he was going on a hike and was busy with family which was fine because I had my bridals that day so my day was busy too. I headed over to his house (his mom was doing my hair and his aunt my make up). I walked in and sat down and was just chatting then I got the biggest surprise of my life. He grabbed my shoulders and said "hey"....lets just say...I flipped haha! It was definitely a surprise to me-I had NO idea he was coming up a week early! So nice to get a hug from the love of my life :) Then all Michelle's siblings started arriving with their kids so we got to chat till I had to leave.
here is a sneak peek of my bridals:
here is a link if you'd like to check out the rest:

So Nate is a sweetheart and planned a date for all of Friday for us :) I've missed this kid so much! I am so excited to marry him in just a little over a month!

Then we headed out to go shopping and we got our marriage license notarized! One step closer to getting married :) Then we went and grabbed dinner and gelato at one of our favorite spots, Settebello's :) I love this man so much! :)
