Im not even sure how to start writing this post, it is pretty random, as are most of my thoughts. I have been thinking a lot lately about the things I have accomplished in my life. I hope this doesn't sound like a "toot my own horn," type of post, because I'm not meaning to do that. I just have a lot to be grateful for. I have a lot of goodness in my life, and I guess I just wanted to give a shout out to all of the good things about my life...the pictures are not in any sort of order. First of all, I have to give my family some love :) I really do have a great family. I was privileged to grow up in the family that I did. My parents raised me and my three siblings humbly, in a humble home, on a simple street, but we have some awesome memories. My siblings suprisingly ended up marrying some pretty cool people, and ended up having some pretty cool kids, that I am crazy about.

I have awesome friends. I don't think I am the type of person who needs a lot of attention, but it's so great to have friends that I know I can count on whenever, and who love me even when I'm not at my best.

I own a gymnastics's completely a love hate relationship. But regardless it's cool that I work for myself.

I graduated with a bachelors degree in three and a half years with a reasonable GPA...Im proud of that.

I got married to my sweetheart in the temple, the best place on earth. I am grateful to be a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. How blessed I am to know the truth without a doubt!

I gave birth twice, I gained 40 lbs with the first, and 50 lbs with the second, and I lost it all. I worked hard to do that, and I am proud of that.

I am a mom, and I try to be better everyday. It's hard work! I have to constantly pray for patience, but I try hard, and I am crazy about my girls.

I have been married for 5 and half years, and we are really happy. Having a happy marriage isn't always easy. It's a lot of give and take, and alot of unselfishness, but it's so worth it, and I'm so lucky that even though I married a guy I only knew for 4 months...I'm happy to say it's the best decision I have ever made!

I ran a 10 K last week in 58 minutes, it was the first race I have ever done, and it was so much fun. So fun in fact I signed up to run a half marathon in 2 months. Crazy, but I know I can do it...even if I have a very slow pace.

All in all, I am proud of my life, I have accomplished a lot, and there is still a lot I want to do. I hope to keep my head high, and my goals close at hand. :)
