26 weeks.

i can not believ how fast this going. 26 weeks is so crazy to me! getting bigger and bigger as time goes on. but been having a great time.. till a couple of days ago...

eric was home i made dinner, which is rare... but i did. eric was down in the den i just cut up some fresh strawberris and made my self a little snack. carrying my yummy cup of berries... walked down the stairs to the den and totally missed the last 2 steps and fell pretty hard. eric instantly jumped up and was trying to help as much as he could or as much as i would let him.
finally got to the couch and really thought i just twisted it and i would be fine after ice and wraped up... littel did i know i woke up the next morning it was HUGE! black and blue and the worst pain i have ever felt in my foot. eric couldnt take me to urgent care he had to leave for work. so i laid back down and got myself to fall back asleep.. finally i gaev in and my friedn stephanie took me to urgent care..
they couldnt take an x-ray because i was 7 months prego and idnt want to risk it. so im now in a boot for 4-6weeks. are you serious.. they cant ell me if i fractured it or not.. so the boot overall will help if it is or not.

homeward bound

well, its been awhile...

we recently just got back from our 2week vacation in home sweet home, Corona. Lots and lots and lots happen while we were home, but biggest of all my brother came home from his mission. it was the most amazing thing ever to have him home and be able to spend time with him. 

so happy. 

it was the most wonderful experience to sit and talk about his two years. and how much he has grown and learned. he is a whole new man. and i am so proud of him and all of his decisions. he is my best friend, and i love that through all of life.. he will have my back. i always wanted a big family but just the two of us has been perfect.

we also got to see our 2 cute nephews... man i love these boys. they are the most loving little boys ever, and im so happy baby Hunter will have wonderful family to be with.

Eric and Owen

it was a big 2 weeks.. jordans 21st birthday, the beach, dirt bike riding, t-ball practice, family dinners, game nights.. it was so fun seeing all our friends and family. truly makes me miss having family so close and around all the time. but utah has been good to us... hard at times, but real good.

regret... none.

It's been said that the saddest thing a man will ever face is what might have been ? But what of the man who's faced with what was? Or what may never be? Or what can no longer be? Choosing the right path is never easy. It's a decision we make with only our hearts to guide us. But sometimes we find our way to something better. Sometimes we fight through the regret and remorse of our mistakes, our malice and our jealously and the shame we feel for not being the people we were meant to be. And that's when we find our way to something better or something better finds its way to us.
It has been 2 whole years since we have moved to utah. Moving was one of the BIGGEST decisions as a couple we have made. To pick up and leave it all behind. To start new. To move ahead with our lives. These past 2 years I have seen such a difference in our lives and I know that it was the right decision.
Has it been hard.... some of the worst pain I have ever felt being alone. Struggled with money, with work, with family, and my own heart. But what i have gained our of this move has been the greatest of all. Now don't say that i have regrets.. or that i don't feel like i hurt people who we left behind.

Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small like when we do a bad thing for a good reason. Some are bigger like when you let down a friend.
Some of us escape the pain of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret because we're looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past, and sometimes we bury our regret by promising to change your own ways.
But, our biggest regrets are not for the things we did -- but, for the things we didn't do. Things we didnt say or show.

Its so hard to go home and see people where they are in their lives. some still in the same ol' place moving no where.. some moved on grew up with out you. Some even look at us and dont see the same people.. or they want to see the old me, when i am no where near that person anymore.

My life has changed. We bought a house... a house that i will raise my children, and grow old with my husband. Im pregnant, for the first time im scared, excited and nervous all over again. But moving away and having to learn to depend on Eric and myself.. i have prepared my self for my future more then i know.

when you're young, you think nothing can hurt you. It's like being invincible. Your whole life is ahead of you, and you have big plans. Big plans. To find your perfect match. The one that completes you. But as you get older, you realize it's not always that easy. It's not until the end of your life that you realize how the plans you made were simply plans. At the end, when you're looking back instead of forward, you want to believe that you made the most of what life gave you. You want to believe that you're leaving something good behind. You want it all to have mattered.
