Getting Better!

Well I am sitting here on the couch at 2:40am, CAN'T SLEEP! I have had some kind of wierd funk for the past month or so. My sinuses are bad, bloody noses, lack of sleep, and bad back pain! But of course....No INSURANCE! So there is really nothing I can do. Going to work at 7:30 in the morning has been tough especially working on 3 or less hours of restless sleep. I feel really bad for my husband because I am keeping him up with snoring, getting in an out of bed, and tossing and turning! We might have to start sleeping in seperate beds!
This months news for us is first if all my sister in law is engaged. As far as I know she is getting married around our anniversary, March 20th, but anyone who is married knows how many times your official date is changed. Everyone always has something the week your planning it. I think we changed our date at least 6 times, so I finally just decided to move it up a whole month!!! Lucky me. Second, Phil and I are getting sealed in the Logan Temple on March 13th!! I am so excited! Oh and I am taking out my endownments the weekend before in the Idaho Falls Temple! March is going to be a crazy month! Third, Lacy had a bery successful delivery of a beautiful baby girl Rebecca 8.5lbs. She is darling! Last, I got a calling in our ward and I am a primary teacher. I got set apart last Sunday, but they haven't told me what age...and no lesson manual to teach sunday! We will see how it goes. :)

I am SOOO Bad at this!!

Well I guess I will write considering it is 4 in the morning and I can't sleep. Also everyone is getting on me to update my here goes. So i still love married life. I love Phil more and more everyday. Its amazing. Phil is still working for the forest service fighting fires. He is gone a lot, but he makes good money. He has been looking for another job for a while now since he is getting laid off here in a month. It's only seasonal. I am working at Dr. Johnson and Dr. McMinn's orthodontist office as an ortho assistant. I like it, but I would rather my full time job be....A Full time MOM! I want to start teaching piano and I am starting to sell Scentsy. Just a few back-ups just in case. We both stay pretty busy, but love to come home, lay in our enormous bean bag chair, eat popcorn, and watch movies. It's my favorite part of the day!
We are living in a townhome in chubbuck and we love it. Its 3 bedrooms, so plenty of room for the 2 of us. We are in a home ward with 3 retirment communities in it, so the older couples love us. Relief Society is hilarious. We have also been going on some last minute vacations before the snow comes. We have gone to Island Park a lot and staying in a friends cabin with the family, and last weekend we camped in Mesa Falls. (We had to hike to get there). It was so much fun, but a lot happened in that one night. We woke up at like 7 in the morning with a bear in our camp site, and the boys tried to go after it, Phil lost his wedding ring after cliff diving into the river(after only being married for 7 months), and then when we were taking our tent down the next morning, there was a huge pile of bear poop under it!!!
With the family, Lacy is having her baby on Wednesday. Number 4 for her, and no one knows the sex of the baby. Lindsey is about 4 months prego, and finds out what it is here in a few weeks. Jess is still in Grace being an amazing mom. Tara just graduated from the esthetician program in Idaho Falls, and just got a job at DrangonFly! Mom and Dad are living life! I love it. They deserve it!
I will try to be better at this! Its not so bad once it is done!

I Love Married Life

So yes......I am married and I love it. It is everything I have always imagined! Yes, there are a few set backs here and there, but I love living, and spending everyday with my best friend. Phil is amazing. We have had a crazy 2 weeks. We got married March 13, then for our honeymoon we went to St. George for 4 days and Las Vegas for 1 day. Came home, moved into our house, then the following weekend went to Las Vegas again and just got home Sunday night. It was way fun, but definitely stressful. 
Everything at the wedding was so beautiful and turned out great. The food, pictures, people, gifts......simply amazing. Looking back thought, everything was a blur. You plan for so long for one day and it is over with is a minute! Whoever came....Let me know what you thought. I would love to hear your comments.

So its official!! Im engaged! I am getting married to the most amazing guy in the whole entire world....Mr. Philip E. Gardner! So yes, I am going to be Mrs. Amanda N. Gardner!! I love it. We are getting married March 13th. All the planning is going smoothly so far. Nothing too stressful. We got our engagement pictures, and I'm really anxious to see what they look like because it was FREEZING outside! Phil and I were so cold that when we got back in our car, our feet were burning! But I am nervous because our faces probably look like they are frozen in place, and our noses are probably bright red! Oh well...I guess. Well I am sure the next time I write on here I will have some different things to say because I will probably be very stressed with the wedding drawing closer. But all in all it is a good stress because I couldn't be more excited about anything else. Until next time!!
