(couldn't find one of me (of course) so I used this cute pic of Eric and Lara at the funeral.
Right after the funeral my mom and I packed up for a well needed and long awaited girls trip to St. George. We met up with our Friends Vesta and Angie and Angie's kids. It was so much fun we had our laughs and cries and just layed by the pool the whole time while eating del taco for almost every meal. ha ha hey, its a vacation who needs that four letter word diet! My favorite part was tuchacan we saw grease and little mermaid and both were good but little mermaid was by far way better and soo cute!! HIGHLY recommend it! pictures above, blogger is retarded.
Just a few last notes as well... I post things on here for myself mostly, so if you have a problem with the things i post (which are the truth) don't come read no one said you had to. Also don't be immature and start drama when there is no need for it, because it doesn't effect me at all. Love you all :)
Second- You know that feeling where you feel like you keep getting hit with a ton of bricks? yeah that is me lately, but when your life is going a certain way and you have absolutely no control over the things happening to you it gets a little stressful, what is even more stressful is when I feel I have no one to talk to you that understands, so my posts for a while may be me venting. just a fore warning. sorry if you feel a bit of attitude or resentment in my posts.

April 2010:Jordan as you know from past blogs was off in So. Carolina training with the army. I went in April to visit him for "Family Day" with his parents. We got two days out of our three days there with him and got to see him graduate BCT.
May 2010: Jordan came home on the 27th of May and we had a party to celebrate. We also,at this point, had plans to get married in a year on May 20th 2011(as you can see it is passed this date and we are not married).His dad also got married during this time in which I was a bridesmaid.
June 2010: Well the month of June was bitter sweet for me. I got a phone call from Jordan's roommate while in training in Texas. I only met him once at the airport, and he was kind enough to call me up and tell my worst nightmare. I had suspected all these things that he had to say but never wanted to believe they could be true. I found out he was drinking, doing drugs, smoking, and having sex with all these women. I guess that is what your men do when their "phone dies". Well it wasn't a question of who I believed, and Jordan and I were over faster than you can say douche bag. It was an answer to my prayers though and I am so thankful for PFC Pessetto. :) I never really looked back after that day, with the lord, friends and my amazing mother I got through all of the five seconds of heartbreak and he was out of my life completely.
July 2010: Well I spent all of July having a blast with family, going to Bear Lake and going to Tim Mcgraw with my family and friends. It was a blast and I knew then what really mattered in this life. Family.Friends. and being happy no matter the cost.
August 2010: Nothing really exciting happened in August, it was just back to school and back to work. I did enjoy my preschool kids this last year though, I actually cried at their graduation. I also had a great dance year! Tiffany is the best person to work for! We really developed a friendship this dance year. And as much as I hate to admit it, school wasn't bad, and it got me that much closer to being done. Eric also started dating a new girl Lara this month, and they are already talking about marriage. My cousin Kara had her baby Reese too.
September 2010: Again not much happened this month. Eric turned 21 and went to Vegas, and I became SO happy with where I was in life, when Brandon Lee Caplette came out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. He was there for me when I needed someone and we just became close (despite me hating him before) we started dating on the 24th after I already told him no when he asked me to be his girlfriend. My best friends also got engaged this month, in Rome! so romantic huh?
October 2010: This month was just same old October and Halloween parties. I was a sailor and Brandon was a pirate. I was a sailor with my friends Lacia and Amber. We did have a loss in our family this month on the 30th. My cousin Nathan(Steph's husband) took his life one day unexpectedly and so there we were with one less family member and a lot of tears. My other friends got engaged this month as well. and A teacher at my work also got married this month.
November 2010: The end of the year just kept getting harder for our family. Only about a week after laying Nathan to rest, my Uncle who wasn't just an uncle to me, dies of a heart attack. He was in St. George enjoying life with his sweet wife and during a show in Thuacan the heart attack came and he died instantly. There my aunt Marci was alone and had to wait alone for all her kids to get there. It was the hardest thing I had to deal with that point in my life. I still am very sad and miss him so much but I know I will see him again, and that's what keeps me going. Needless to say, we laid him to rest the week before thanksgiving, so I wasn't a very thankful person this year.
December 2010: This month was busy for me. We had a cute Christmas dance recital, and my birthday. I turned 20 and went to dinner at P.F Chang's with my family and Brandon and then we went to see the lights at temple square. We had Christmas, and even though we were happy, we still felt a void of our family members. The first things without someone are always the hardest. It was my first Christmas with Brandon though and we had fun together getting each other gifts still being new in the relationship. My friends and I also had another Tabiona trip during our Christmas break. It was so much fun! We even exchanged gifts, we got the boys shirts with all our nicknames and "the krew" on it! My cousin Tara also had her cute baby boy Crew.
January 2011: We celebrated Conner and Collin's Birthday this month. Conner turned 17 and Collin turned 16 and got a cute little res chevy caviller for his birthday! He was so excited and so surprised! He likes that I can't drive it though because the seat doesn't scoot up far enough for me to reach the peddles. We also celebrated 2011! Brandon, Eric, Lara and I went to my friend's Chaseton's house and we played games, ate lots and had our new years kisses. It was one of the funnest new years I had.
February 2011: Things were starting to get more laid back for me here for just a little anyway. I was just going to school, I started a new semester in Jan and that was about it. Dance and work weren't too busy either. We went to visit my uncle's grave for his birthday which was a little tough but I felt him there. It was Brandon's birthday this month and so I took him to a Jazz game against my awesome Bulls. It was cool that it happened to be Jerry Sloan's last game he coached. Valentine's day Brandon and I went to Dinner to tepanyaki's and we exchanged gifts. We also took another Tabi trip this month.
March 2011: wow.. I forgot how much I was behind on my blog. Sorry for this novel.. I guess this is just for me to reminisce. March started competition season for the dance studio and we did really well! We worked hard and it showed. We did Toy Story as our production this year and it was so cute! Even though we didn't feel ready for our first competition, we held our own and did a really good job. It was also my parent's 22nd anniversary this month. I hope I can have a marriage like theirs and be so in love after that long. I also went to the Lady Gaga concert with Lacia. I love Lady Gaga and it was really one of the best concerts of my life! My cute grandpa also had his 81st birthday, we didn't know then that it would be his last...
April 2011: My mom and I went to St. George this month for competitions, we had fun together and I love the time just her and I get to spend together. We had a good cry a long the way remembering Craig. We had fun there and TCD of course rocked it! We also had some more competitions this month, some in which I had to compete! It was fun dancing again though, even if I'm not as good as I used to be. We had Easter as well this month.
May 2011: Well this month was more competitions, preschool graduation, and my summer started. We ended competition this month as well. I got done with school and found out I have to retake Biology... sucky right?! My friend Brooke got married, and so did my friend Rachel. I was very happy for them! I had an encounter with Jordan at Brooke's wedding though, not fun! I also had a fun "naughty" shower for my friend Lacia. We had another Tabi trip here too.My grandpa also was feeling some pain in his stomach and went to get tests done, they thought that it was pancreatic cancer and has already spread to his liver. Here we started with more heartbreak, tears and family tragedy...
June 2011: Here we are FINALLY in June. My friend Lacia just got married last Saturday after 5 years of being together with Chase! I am so happy for them and I was glad I got to be a part of their wedding by being a bridesmaid. My Grandpa had a stroke and was put in the hospital, it was kind of a good thing because we wouldn't have known the status of his cancer without it, and he wouldn't have been getting the help he was. It was so awful to see him that way. No one ever wants to see their loved one the way I saw my grandpa for the first time. He had his stroke Tuesday and by Thursday we were told his cancer and spread all over his body and should go home to die... my family was told that very coldheartedly. We found the best hospice service out there. Really, these guys were the most amazing people and so sweet to my sweet, sweet grandpa. He was out on Hospice Thursday and slowly stopped eating, drinking, and eventually talking. He was holding on for a long time, being his stubborn self. I think he was worried about leaving his family and especially my grandma.. I also think he was waiting for one of his daughters that hasn't been around for years to come... unfortionaly she didn't come and as my whole family was there talking about how we were ook to let him go, he passed. He was surrounded by us all and we all got to see him leave this life free of pain. It is bitter sweet although I miss him more than I thought I would... He was and still is my hero!! I love you Grandpa and I hope you are having fun with your parents, Craig, billy, Vern and Nathan. I'll see you soon... But on to more happy things.. It wouldn't be right posting this without a tribute to my amazing father! Its father's day and I just wanted to wish him a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!! I wouldn't be the girl I am today without you! You are such a great example to me and I am lucky to have a friendship with you as well. You are not just a daddy, you are so many other amazing things to me... I forget how much I take my parents for granted. I realized how many people don't have both parents in their lives and I take for granted that both mine are... they are the most selfless amazing parents and I sure hope my dad has the best father's day because of it! I LOVE YOU DADDY!!(and mom)OK.. now I promise, i will stay updated from now on. :)

I just got back from Tabiona with some friends! It was the funnest time I've had in awhile, and the funnest weekend ever! We didn't do much just sat around, ate, slept and watched movies.. while attempting to sled. It was a blast... Eric, Chaseton, Josean, Brandon, Nick, Lacia, Amber, and me all went Thursday to Sunday. It was cold but fun. My mother was keeping me updated on mail and I came home to 9 LETTERS!! I was so excited and while getting ready to leave today I got a phone call from Jordan. I loved it, it was a great weekend all together! Spent it with great company... true friends and getting news from the boyfriend. I also ordered a hoodie for myself and it came in the mail this weekend too its an army girlfriend hoodie. I loved this weekend.

I got a new Chevy cobalt this past month. its been great feeling cool driving :) its also kept me pretty occupied while my man is gone. It has become "my baby"
Jordan and I write letters everyday! I have gotten four from him in the last two days. He is really doing great. He is on a 3 day camping trip where they have to hike a few miles with 60 lbs on their backs. He's gonna be buff. He has been ordained into the priesthood there with special permission. He has really fallen in love with the church there. You should see his letters, I wonder if it's even him sometimes with all the things church related he writes. I love it though, he is so excited to go through the temple with me someday. ( I can't wait for that day) He quotes scriptures and the prophet like nobodies business, and its always things I need to hear at the moment. He is so great. I love him more and more each day.
I have been busy going to school full time, teaching dance, teaching preschool, babysitting Jordan's little sister, nannying for Alaina, and having my new calling as a primary teacher. I hardly get "me" time, but I love what I'm doing and I love the kids!!
Life is pretty good to me considering. Well ta ta for now.
