Dreams do come TRUE!

I don't know if it's the sun shining that is bringing on this thought but, i was thinking about all I have ever wanted. When I was young, I wanted to be a good young women, get into BYU, get married to a wonderful man in the Nauvoo Temple, have a family, and be a stay at home mom with possibly my own business out of my home. As I sat rocking my screaming toddler, trying to get him to nap, call Jordan on his lunch break so Tristan can talk to him and actually nap ( Tristan refuses to nap till he has talked to dad), I realized a lot of what  I dreamed of has come true.

On August 10th, 2007, I married the man of my dreams for time and all eternity  in the Nauvoo temple. After having met him on December 30th at a singles new years dance where fate had us meet, (if you want to know the details they are cool, just ask me) and then unofficially became engaged on January 20th. I had finally met my prince charming.

Then on April 28th, month and a half before my 23rd b-day and 5 months before our second wedding anniversary, our darling Tristan Nicholes was born. 23 hours of labor, 3 hours of pushing, and a c-section later, he weighed  8lbs 2oz, 20 inches long.
Tristan now 21 months old, 35 inches tall and only 22lbs
A year after Tristan was born I graduated from BYU-Idaho (not my first choice, but ended up being the best place for me) In Child Development with a minor in Marriage and Family.

Since graduation I have had to work as a PSR specialist, though i love the kids i work with, i am still trying to be at home with Tristan and eventually get a small part time job or work from home.

I have so much to be thankful for, the Lord has truly blessed my life. Jor has a great hob here in Idaho, and although we miss home and family, this is great for right now. As long as we follow what the Lord will have us do, many more of my dreams will come true (like a 2nd baby?).

glad to be in Idaho right now

So this is the snow in MN right now. If i was at home right now I would cry everyday. Just think how long that will take to melt. Jor complains everyday that we don't have enough snow here and he wants to be at home, but i am thinking, that is too much!
