11 Random Things About Myself

  1.  Whenever I turn the volume up or down on the tv/radio it has to be either a 5 or a 10. If its not it bugs me until I do turn it.
  2. I miss dancing everyday.
  3. One time my friends and I went to the atm on foot cause we weren't old enough to drive, well when we got there it didn't work and one of us kicked it jokingly and they got it on the security camera. They called and talked to my parents, of course.
  4. In Jr. High I was quite the rebel. :) You probably wouldn't have guessed it. Got my parents called a couple times, once by my math teacher and once by my p.e. teacher. Then I hit high school and got real shy.
  5. My friends and I used to make tons and tons of horribly embarrassing home videos, but it kept us out of trouble.
  6. In high school I always liked asking/answering the boys to the dances more then actually going to the dances. :)
  7. I'm addicted to peanut butter.
  8. Lots of times when teaching Zumba I forget and have to improvise. I try to hide it and I hide it pretty well i think.
  9. I loved young womens, but one thing I loved the most was that most of the young women thought I was so funny and it made me feel pretty awesome. LOL!
  10. My clothes and Wyatt's clothes always have to be matching. Not each other just our own outfits. I'm kind of OCD about it.
  11. In Jr. High and High School I always always hoped to go out with Samuel Naugle. He was so dreamy and now he is my husband and its better then I ever dreamed. :)   
Jason's questions for me

1. What would you do if you found out that your husband/future wife was really a robot?
I would probably get really scared and not know what to do. 
2. Describe your perfect vacation?
Disneyland, lots of good food/dessert, spending the whole time with my family, going to the beach, tanning, swimming, broadway plays, sleeping, working out, shopping and of course fantasmic at Disneyland or Hawaii. Aww i don't know which one would be better. 
3. If you had one day to spend one million dollars, how would you spend it?
I would buy gifts for my husband and Wyatt, then pay my parents back for everything they have done for me, go to disneyland and take my whole fam, buy/build Sam his dream house with tons of land for all the animals he wants.
4. Who is one of your heroes and why?
My mother is one of my heroes because she is the perfect mother. She is the most selfless people I know. She would do ANYTHING for me and her whole family. I want to be a mom just like her. I have learned so much from her and still have so much to learn from her. I'm so lucky that she is my mom. I'm so glad she is my mom. She is the strongest person i know.
5. If you had to watch one movie 10 times a day for the rest of your life, which movie would you choose?
How about a tv show? If it was a tv show it would be friends. A movie would be...the proposal or juno. I'm not totally sure.
6. If you could make your own new flavor of ice cream, what would it be?
It would be my mom's homemade chocolate cake flavor. That is the best thing ever.
7. If you had to be someone else for one week, who would you choose to be?
One of the dancers on SYTYCD, just because I want to dance! But being myself is pretty great.
8. In your opinion, who is the best actor or actress of all time?
Hmmm this is a bad question for me. I really like Johnny Depp and i think he is a pretty dang good actor.
9. Gummi worms or gummi bears?
10. What is the best meal you have ever had?
The monte cristo sandwich in Disneyland. Best thing ever! Best dessert is a cazookie. Yum!
11. If you were abducted by aliens and taken back to their home planet, how would you escape?
Well Sam and I are going to learn how to knife fight so I would probably just knife/dance fight them all (Yes i said knife/dance fight) and then steal their ship and fly it back to earth. Booya!

My Birthday

Let me start off by telling you a little story. One day we went out and saw some people all dressed up for prom. They came in and asked a waiter a question and then left looking disappointed. Sam looked at me and said "you gotta have everything planned in advance, everything has to be perfect." I said "I bet your dates were perfect and so much fun" Me again "I want you to take me on a date like you would of if we were in high school" So he said he would for my birthday.
As it got closer to my birthday he started talking about it and said i had to wait for him to "ask me" on our date. I was very anxious and excited!
Two days before my birthday i was having a very rough day or week for that matter. He comes in the door from work with a big smile on his face. Sits down in front of me pulls out a long poem he wrote just to ask me out on our date. He read it to me and of course i cried. It was so sweet and thoughtful and described our whole relationship up to this point. I said yes of course. :)
He had the whole day planned and i knew nothing. Everything was a surprise, which was perfect cause i LOVE surprises!
First, we woke up and he had planned to go for a run (which was perfect cause i had wanted him to go running with me for quite some time) but Wyatt didn't sleep good the night before and was still sleeping. So we decided to just go back to sleep for a little while. Then we woke up and got ready to go.
We started driving and ended up at my sister in law's house. She just graduated from massage therapy school so i immediately knew what was going to happen. Yes, you guessed it. I got a full body massage. AAMAZING! Then we went swim suit shopping for me. Got some lunch.
Then he surprised me by taking me swimming at the Lehi Legacy Center. I've wanted to take Wyatt swimming for a long time. We went swimming for about an hour. Wyatt was a little worried about it at first and hated getting splashed. Once he got used to the water he was totally relaxed and loved it!
Then Sam took Wyatt and I to my parents so i could get ready for dinner. I got ready, wore a pretty dress. Sam knocked on the door they opened it and i heard him say "I'm here to pick up my date" I walk out and he is in an all black TUX with a red tie. My dress was red so we matched, of course.
We went to Carrabas for dinner and ate tons of delicious food. We headed home and at this point i thought all the surprises were over. We pull up to the house and he says "I have a present for you, wait here." He runs in real quick, comes out and takes me in. We walk in and i hear music, see balloons and candles. He says "its a dance". I about bawled. There was also a disney princess castle decoration. If you know how much a i LOVE disney, you know how much i LOVED this! He also got me a crown that said princess. Yup thats when i started crying. We danced for about an hour. It was perfect and way better then any high school dance.
Then to finish the night off we met my parents and Wyatt at cold stone and got some yummy ice cream and yes i got whatever i wanted. Hah it tasted so good.
We were so exhausted after all that we slept real good and so did Wyatt.
That was my birthday that my perfect husband planned. I can't even begin to explain just how perfect the day was. He knows me so well and knew exactly what to plan. It was by far the best birthday ever!!  I always wanted to go on a date with him in high school and last night i pretty much did. I love him so much and am so lucky to have him. He spoils me so much. I loved just being able to spend the entire day with my sweet little family. It was PERFECT. BEST. BIRTHDAY. EVER! Thank you Sam and everyone that helped him make my day so special. It is for sure a day i will NEVER forget.

Best Friends...

I just want to write a little bit about my 5 best friends in the whole world. They are amazing and are always there for me and always know how to make me feel better. They are never mean, or talk behind my back and are always honest.

Sam, my hot husband
Ok, just look at that picture. How lucky am I? I would say the luckiest. He is amazing and always always knows how to make me feel better about anything and everything. I turn to him for everything. He is seriously perfect for me and I'm so happy I married him and that we are best friends! He is such an amazing dad. Wyatt is so lucky to have him as his dad. He works so hard for our family. He would do anything for us and he does do anything for us. I love just sitting and talking to him. I could do it for hours and sometimes we do. He is always honest with me and I love him for that. I Love you Sam!

My little buddy Wyatt
Ok, now look at that smile. That smile can make me so unbelievably happy. I spend everyday with this little man and we have SO much fun. I wouldn't trade being a mom for anything. He is for sure one of my best friends and I can't wait to watch him grow up!

My beautiful Mom
Isn't she beautiful? Yes, she is. She is one of my best friends and I wish I would have realized this earlier in my life. She has been with me through everything in my life. All the hard moments when I didn't think I could make it, she was ALWAYS there. She is THE BEST mom EVER. Honestly, she is amazing and I'm so lucky to call her my mom and best friend. I love our shopping days. I love making memories that i will cherish forever.

My handsome Dad
Look at that stud. He is definitely one of my best friends. He is ALWAYS at my Zumba classes. He supports me in everything. He hasn't ever missed a performance of mine. Once I start talking to my dad about anything I can talk to him for so long. He is so easy to talk to and such a good listener. He worked so hard to give me everything i wanted growing up. I got to take any kind of lessons i wanted. He is such a hard worker and he does it for his family. He should give himself more credit cause he is amazing!

Last, but certainly not least, Isabelle
Look at how beautiful she has grown up to be. This girl has grown up right before my eyes. We are like sisters. We have SO much fun together and can talk about anything. I love hanging out with her. We have some very fun times together. Getting ice cream, shopping, sleepovers, etc. I love doing her hair and make up and just laughing with her about stupid things.

Well, those are my best friends. I love all of them so much. I'm so glad they are all in my life and that they will be forever.

Thanks to all of them for loving me, taking care of me, listening to me, making me feel better, sacrificing for me, and so many other things you've done for me. I love you all so much!

7 1/2 months old

Well our little Wyatt is 7 1/2 months old now. Time just keeps going faster and faster! He isn't quite crawling yet, but he rolls all over the place. He sits up really well. He waved for the first time yesterday (April 24)! It was so cute. Everyday when Sam leaves for work we both wave and say bye for a while. Lol we figure he finally picked up on it. He is so much fun! He is waking up now so i will make this short. Will update more later! :)

Sam's Birthday!

Yesterday was Sam's 24th birthday and boy did I spoil him! :) I love spoiling that boy! He seriously is the most amazing husband and dad ever! I don't know how i got so lucky. He started his day by going to a horse clinic then got a haircut from my mom. We then went to a movie, but before the movie i gave him his gift basket. Which was full of sunflower seeds, beef jerky, chap stick, his own personal coupon book, "Mission Impossible" (the new one), gum, a cd i recorded, and a collage of pictures of our family. It was so much fun to watch him see everything that was in there. After we listened to the cd and i got embarrassed we headed to the movie. We saw "Lockout" wasn't the best, but it was nice to get out and see a movie while grandma and grandpa watched Wyatt. After the movie we went to dinner and red lobster! Yum! I LOVE that place! When we were stuffed full of lobster and shrimp we went home and got Wyatt ready for bed, but he wasn't ready for bed and wanted to play. Sam fell asleep on the couch and eventually Wyatt fell asleep and then i conked out on the floor. It was a long day, but we had tons of fun and i'm so glad Sam was able to take the night off to hang out with us!
Happy Birthday Sam! Wyatt and I love you so much and we are so grateful for you in our life! You take such good care of us. You work SO hard to give us the amazing life we have! I'm so thankful you are mine! I love you for ever!!  Muuuahhh!
Sam and Wyatt outside of Red Lobster. Look at those two handsome boys!

6 months?

Wyatt is going to be 6 months old on Thursday. Has it really already been 6 months? If the first 6 months go by this fast I can't even imagine how fast the next 6 months will go. Wow. Babies grow up way too fast.
He is getting so much personality. He thinks Sam and I are the funniest people ever. He laughs at everything we do. I love it! We took him the Doctor today because he has a cough and apparently an ear infection too. Poor little guy. He is still happy though. Some things about Wyatt...
*He can roll from back to front and front to back
*He can and will eat anything
*He loves his toes
*He loves his baths
*He loves Mickey Mouse Club House
*He can almost sit up on his own
*He smiles right when Sam gets home from work
*He loves when I sing to him
*He loves and hates watching us eat
*He always wants our food
*He loves being outside
*He is very good at grabbing everything and taking it straight to his mouth
He is such a sweetheart and such a blessing to our lives. He makes us so happy everyday. Even if I don't get much sleep. Its totally worth it. Here goes another crazy/fun 6 months! Here are a few pictures of Wyatt in the last 6 months. :)

No motivation

Lately I have had zero motivation to eat healthy. I still work out almost everyday, but when you eat nothing but junk it doesn't really count. Ugh I used to have so much motivation and I would be so healthy now i'm tired and just don't care and i'm hungry ALL the time. What is wrong with me? Sorry just had to vent. Been feeling like this for a long time. I wish i could be super mom. Never get tired, always have dinner made, laundry done, clean house.
Anyone got advice for me? :)
Well thats all for now cause guess what? I'm tired. lol. Big surprise.

Valentines Day

I have always loved Valentines day, but never as much as i loved it yesterday. It was such an amazing romantic day. My husband is so thoughtful, sweet, romantic, unbelievably handsome and i couldn't ask for anyone better! I woke up made and made some heart shaped muffins (Yum), then later Sam had a surprise for me. He had me go wait in our room for a few minutes then he came in with a letter and a rose. I read the letter and on the rose was a memory or something he loved about me. There were 11 more of these roses scattered through out the house. It was fun to read all of them. I was smiling the whole time and even cried a little. It was such a good idea and meant so much more then jewelry or chocolates. Then Sam went to work and i kept my mom busy while my dad got some stuff ready for their date. I ordered take out from Carabbas and Sam picked it up on his way home from work. I got candles, sparkling cider, and rose petals and made it very romantic. He had no idea i was doing all of that. He loved it. We ate the delicious food and just talked. I gave him a deck of cards that had 52 reasons why i love him. Then we watched a movie. It was such an amazing day. The best Valentines Day i've ever had. All thanks to my amazing husband Sam for making it such a special day! I love him so much and i love that it is his favorite holiday. I love being in love and especially being in love with Sam and with our little Wyatt. Love this holiday!!
Thanks for reading. :)

13 years ago this friday was one of the most exciting days for me. My first little niece was born. I was so so so excited!! I remember just sitting in the waiting room waiting to hear if she was born yet. I got to hold her and then watch her get a bath through the window. It was such a great day. Now i can't believe its been 13 years. I can't believe she is a teenager. She is like my little sister. We have been so close her whole life. I remember always having sleep overs with her, renting movies, going to mcdonalds, doing her hair and make up, teasing her, taking millions of pictures together, watching all the HSM movies, dancing with her, and there are so many more that i can't even remember. We always have fun together! She is definitely one of my best friends! I'm so glad to have her back in Utah. I love that she was at the hospital when Wyatt was born. He loves her so much. He is all smiles when she is around! She is beautiful inside and out. I'm so proud to be her aunt! HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet Isabelle! I hope you have the best day ever!! :) I love you!

Here are a few pictures.

Some more of our life

Its is such a HUGE change having a baby. I never thought it would be as hard as it can be sometimes. He is such a blessing in our lives and he makes us happier then we ever have been and ever could be. Sometimes its just hard. Like sleepless nights, when he is sick and i can't do much to help him, not long enough naps, etc. But i wouldn't trade any of it for anything ever! He is the cutest little thing ever and when i'm so tired in the middle of the night and he wakes up hungry and smiles at me i can't help but just melt and that makes it so worth it.
It is so amazing to see how much Sam has changed after becoming a dad. Before having him he wouldn't hold anyone else's baby, he always said he would never change a poopy diaper. Well i will tell you, he LOVES to hold Wyatt and he has changed many dirty diapers. He doesn't love doing it, but he does. :) He is so cute with Wyatt! I love watching him interact with him. You can tell how much he loves him and cares about him.
I LOVE being a mom. It has to be the best job ever. It is so rewarding. I love that he knows exactly who i am. Every time i look at him and smile he lights up and smiles right back. All i have to do is hold his hand when he is in his car seat and he calms down or falls right to sleep. I can't wait to see him grow up, but not too fast. ;)
Some things he loves
-Grabbing my hair and eating it
-When Sam talks to him
-Reaching for Sam
-The song 10 little indians
-Baby mozart
-Tylenol (don't worry, i don't give him too much)
-Watching Sam and I eat
-When dad sings
-Mom and Dad (of course)
-He loves listening and watching Isabelle talk
-Watching little kids
-His Grandmas and Grandpas
-Playing peek-a-boo
-Sleeping when Grandma holds him
-Watching me talk
-Scratching his head
-Being tickled
-To see me or Sam when he first wakes up
-To look at himself in the mirror
-To bite anything and everything, especially fingers
Those are just a few things!!
I'm so grateful i'm a mom and to have this sweet little spirit!!

A lot to cover

Well I told you I was bad at blogging. There is a lot to cover since I last wrote on here. We had our baby on September 15, 2011. It was such a perfect day. Maybe i will start with that story. I had started having contractions a few days before but they weren't too bad and just went away. We went to the doc a couple days before and they said they would induce me on Sept 15 which was that thursday. So Sam took work off the 2 days before to just make sure he was there. It was wednesday Sept 14 and we slept in til about 2 in the afternoon and then we went to town cleaning and getting Wyatt's room ready. We knew it was going to happen any day now. We cleaned the whole house, made dinner (hamburgers), went and got a ice cream cone from macey's (one of my favorite things to eat while pregnant), rented "Prom", and Sam painted my finger nails. Yes, we watched the movie Prom and Sam painted my finger nails glittery pink. Haha he was so sweet to do all those things with/for me! The movie got over and and i told Sam i wanted a blessing before i was induced the next morning. He gave me a blessing and right as he was finishing i had a contraction. They started at about midnight. Once they started that was it. They were very close and pretty long. After just having a few of them we decided it was time to go to the hospital. So we got some things together and headed for the hospital. Well they couldn't just check me in they had to make sure that i was dilated enough first. She checked me and of course i was a 3 1/2 and i needed to be a 4. So i had to wait an hour and see if i progressed. An hour later she checked me and i hadn't progressed at all. So she said i could walk around for an hour and see if that would help move things along or i could go home. I was not going home in that much pain. So i walked around the hospital as best i could. Pretty much just grasping Sam the whole time. Every time i had a contraction i had to have him right next to me. He was so amazing through all of this. He was right next to me the whole time. I could not have done it with out him. My parents were also there with us the whole time. I'm so blessed with amazing people in my life. Anyway back to the story...i could barely walk around the contractions were so bad. She checked me and i was still the same. I was so sad and in so much pain and the nurse could tell so she said she thought i was going to progress soon and she would tell the doctor i was a 4 but that i couldn't tell anyone. It was so nice of her. She ordered me an epidural and checked me in. I was so thankful she did that. So after contracting for 3 hours i got the epidural, which was amazing!! I didn't even feel it and then my contractions were gone within 10 min. Aw it was magical! Ha after i got the epidural i moved along very fast. Before i knew it it was time to push. I started pushing at about 7:30. It was hard and i had to have oxygen the whole time cause his heart rate kept dropping. With Sam on one side and my mom on the other i kept pushing. It was 8:26 when he was born. It was the best feeling the world when i heard and saw him. The spirit was so strong. I just started crying. Sam cut the cord and they took him right away cause he had a bowel movement inside so they had to check him out. they weighed him at 7lbs 181/2 in long. They gave him to Sam once they found out he was ok and he brought him straight to me. Oh it was so amazing to finally hold our little boy! The best/craziest day of my life!
I am so thankful i had Sam there by my side the whole time. I definitely couldn't have done it without him. He kept me going and kept me strong. He is the best husband ever! I'm so glad i had my mom in the room. It was such a sweet experience to share with her! I will never forget that. We are so thankful for our sweet little Wyatt that we had that day and for all the happiness he has already brought to us!! I'm so thankful for all the amazing people that were there. For my Dad and Isabelle that were right outside the room waiting to hear him cry. My sweet dad who worried the whole time and watched me suffer through the contractions. I could see the saddness on his face. My beautiful little niece that wanted to be there so bad. She woke up at around 5 or 6 am and when she realized i was in labor and she wasn't there she called right away and wanted to come right away. I was so glad she came and was there. All the people i love the most were there to welcome Wyatt and be there for me! It was such a wonderful day and so worth it!! Thanks for reading and sorry its all jumbled together. :) Sorry the pictures are in random order.

I had to have oxygen most of the time and Sam was always there holding my hand.
