A Fun, Fun weekend

When it comes to planning weekend nights, Zack and I are usually at a loss. We can't ever decide what to do or who to call. They are usually last minute plans and there's only a few people you can ask to hang out last minute. Friday night was fun- we weren't going to go out at first but then last minute our friends Quin and Nicole called- we met up at a park right behind our house and played a couple games then went to their apartment and played the wii (I suck at it- actually i just suck at games, I'm just there to make people feel better about themselves). Then Saturday night we actually had plans so that was good. Our ward was having a BBQ, so after Zack got home from a long day of golf we went to that. I love our ward. Sunday rolled around and Zack wanted to play monopoly really bad. So we asked Alyssa and Tyler what they were doing- they invited us over and we brought the game. Luckily, Alyssa likes the game as much as Zack and Tyler is naturally good at that (once again, I'm just there to make everyone feel better about themselves). It was a really fun night. A great start to a new week :)

My Sweet Love

After a stressful ending to my work day, Zack was very sweet and patient with me while I took and made many "off the clock" work calls. He is great and understanding to let me finish everything that I need to do and all the while listen to me vent about my daily worries. I love him for that! I always wish that I can repay him for his support and love- I guess I can just do the same for him!! I guess that's what marriage is about- love and support and helping the other become a better person, Oh it's great! :)

Sunday- We look forward to it

Sunday afternoons are so relaxing. It's nice having church early- 10:30, it's perfect. We sleep in a little bit on Sundays, who doesn't though? Well, I'm sure there are plenty of people who don't but right now, we aren't one of them. Today was the first Sunday back at our own ward for about 3 weeks- I guess you really learn to appreciate your own ward. It's nice to be around familiar faces.

I made a yummy dinner tonight with the help of Zack :) We made chicken, mashed potatoes (not quite as good as Mom's yet) and the best corn on the cob! (just boiled, but I made a really good honey-butter with cinnamon). I'm glad I really enjoy cooking- Zack would be so sad if I didn't enjoy it so much :)

After dinner, we went and took a little nap before Zack left for work at 9:15. It's sometimes hard for me to want to get out of bed after we've been sleeping for so long, but our room is getting so HOT! I don't know why- we need a fan I guess. We've opened the windows but that's not enough for us I guess. Oh well.

It's all over. . .

Soccer. We're finished for the year. I'm sad about it honestly. Soccer has been so fun to go to and be with the other wives and parents. And i know that Zack is going to miss his teammates- they're great friends to him. But there are pros about having this time consuming sport over for Zack. I mean for One- I get to spend more time with him! After I get home from work, he'll be here at home :) Then we have hours together before work. It'll be so nice. Zack's been working so hard with soccer and work and being an amzaing husband, he deserves time to rest. So that brings me to two- he can sleep more! he doesn't have to worry about waking up for soccer practice. Three- We can FINALLY go on hikes together and do other outdoorsy stuff! During soccer it's harder because he works hard at practice and if we were to do something else on top of that it would push him over the edge.

BYU ended the season with a win yesterday playing Ogden outlaws! 3-1.

I'm grateful soccer will forever be a part of my life- I have a new appreciation for it :)

Every morning Zack gets home at exactly the same time, 6:41 am. He then will call me and I meet him outside to move my car. It's the same thing every morning. Then he gets ready for bed. He's just plain exhausted when he gets home. Thankfully it's almost over for him! He needs real sleep. For an entire week. It's hard for him to sleep during the day most of the time, but he's so great and goes on with life even if he is dead tired. With soccer ending this week maybe he'll be able to rest more- I know that we will have more time together, That's what I'm looking forward to the most :) But I'm sad the games are coming to an end. Perhaps next year!!!

It's funny to think that the challenges that you have in life will be so minute when we're older. These things that seem such a big deal to me really don't matter and won't matter in just days. It happens to me all the time, when i get so passionate that something that is just not right and it has to be fixed TODAY, but tomorrow, even if it's not resolved- it won't matter. I try to take things as they come, be relaxed and "go with the flow" but it's harder than I though it would be. Thank goodness for Zack! He keeps my head on straight and shows me whats really important. I love him for that :)

Family in Town!

This summer has been a lot more fun than I thought it would be :) I thought it was just going to be work, work, work. I've really been enjoying soccer this year which is huge considering I didn't know a thing about it 2 years ago- I didn't even know the world cup only happened every 4 years and that it's kind of a big deal :) (i still can't figure out off-sides. . ) Too bad this is our last year playing at BYU :( we'll just have to wait for our kids to start playing soccer! (no Mom, we're not starting family right now). This past month we've seen SO much family! it's been amazing! First my aunt Shelia and uncle Sam and their amazing family, and then my dear sister Treva, then my Lovely Nana, then Grayson and my Uncle Mark, and just yesterday I dropped of Conner at EFY (I'm so lucky :) ) And of course we have aour family here in Provo with us- Brookie, KC, Owen, Alyssa, and Tyler- I love my family! We also got to see my other cousins for a bit- Dallin, Thomas, Kim, and Kat! it was so fun! and all that doesn't even include Zack's family! Both of his parents came to town :) and Kimmy and Brad and little Lincoln Loggs came down from Ogden (always fun to play with them). And then Zack's sister Amber and her family! (6 total) it was so much fun! I wish i had taken more pictures :(Some day I'll get really good at taking pictures.

We love our family so much and we're so grateful for everyone's support always! Thank you for all you guys do for us!
