Home for the Holidays

We are so blessed to have family who are able to give us the gift of being home! Thanks to our parents and Alli and Johnny, our first christmas as Mr. and Mrs. Jasperson was spent with our parents. Seattle had a major blizzard this yr and It was so fun to be there! A total of 15 inches was the most we saw. Luckily we were not some of the people who were stranded at the airport for days. When we flew in we went to snowflake lane with my family and aaron ate his first thai food! He loved it, it was bomb. We spend christmas eve with his family and got to meet our new niece Mia, what a fricken doll she is!! Here is aaron holding her, to bad you can't see her face.

Christmas day we went over to my parents house and relaxed, ate a good dinner and went to see 7 pounds. I highly recomend this movie, and count on crying like a baby.
Here we are at my moms house.

Our front yard on christmas!!

On friday we went out to my grandmas house, she lives in snoqualmie and was stuck for days! Aaron and my brother shovled her driveway, but only so she could back out, not drive down her hill.

I have a lot of pics of the wonderful time we had back home for christmas, but kodak is being slow. So I will write about my christmas present. Let me paint the scene for you, it's christmas eve, we are at aaron's parents house with his sisters and nieces sitting around the tree. Everyone gets to open one gift tonight, so we in no hurry mostly because most my presents are at my parents house, I am already in seattle so what could be better, and aaron and I have yet to get eachother extravagant gifts for christmas, so I wasnt expecting much. So its my turn, aaron hands me what seems to be a book, I open it and there is a sticky not on the cover which I glanse at but am more concerned about the title. Im assuming this as got to be a book on how my husband is ready to have kids, or how to work on getting the husband to clean the house-which would be a great book to get!! But it titled something so meaningless to me I dont even remember, so he tells me to read the sticky note: IF YOU TURN TO PAGE 110 YOU MIGHT GET LUCKY YOU WILL SEE I REALLY AM A SLAVE FOR YOU. So i notice those are britney spears songs, but he wanted to somehow throw in britney to my present by letting my know he know's some of her songs, great. So I turn to page 110 and a pair of tickets fall heart stops, I open the tickets and it IS TWO TICKETS TO SEE BRITNEY AT MGM IN VEGAS!! I start crying, im shocked this guy who I sometimes think does not even know I am in the room with him got me such a priceless gift. It really means so much to me, just the thought of him wanting me to be so happy!! I knew how much the tickets were, and didn't even plan on buying one for myself even if I found someone to go with. So, what a great christmas this was. The best until i have babies to buy for.

I love christmas lights! Who doesn't, really? So I was so excited to finally be living in a house and not an apartment this yr! A few weeks ago Aaron, Brad and Brad's brother in law Scott did the guy thing and put up the lights! They did a great Job, and I'm sure it sucked pretty bad. I had no idea what went into putting up lights. It's quite the project. Here are a few pics of the process........

And the BEAUTIFUL after product....

Advice, thoughts....suggestions!!

I don't know what's going on, Well maybe I do....... I know I can't be at the age your at when you feel like its now or never-so it must just be that EVERYONE i know is having kids, or more kids. I knew from an early age I was destin to be a mom, and now that I'm a wife I feel like it's time. Only it's not........nothing is right in my life. I'm not at a job I want to be at, I don't have my own kitchen and my husband has been feeling the effects of the economy worse than anyone ( or so I like to think) So my question is when is the right time? Well, for one I know my husband has to agree-strike one. you have to have your own kitchen, right-strike two. you have to of been to europe, on a cruise and new york and do all the things you can't do when you have kids, right-strike three. There are many more strikes we have against us, but is that what normal people do before they have kids, add up all the strikes? What if it changed our life for the better? To have something we have never had, we have to do somehting we have never done-right? Well maybe that something is create the most beautiful thing little girl in the world (im pretty set on having a girl)! I just don't know!!! So can someone tell me when is the time-how do I make it happen?

Oh Landon

So this pic was taken a few weeks ago, but it's to funny not to post about. So it's a sunday and I'm on my way home from shopping and aaron text's me saying I need to get home asap, well lucky him I am pulling in the driveway. I go upstairs to see what he wants and he tells me he was up in our room and he looks over at the door and sees landon, wearing a monkey costume. Come on, that's funny.........a 3 yr old wearing a monkey costume just cuz!! So i go find landon, and he is still wearing it-refusing to take it off and it's a little small for him. But the cutest thing EVER!!! I love living with these kids :)

First off, i need to admit that I dont know if I spelled thanksgiving right. But other than that I had a great day!! I wasn't able to spend it with my family, but knowing that I will be home for christmas is good enough. Even though this was the 2nd year I was not with MY family, It was a very heart warming day. I am fortunate enough to have such loving in-laws to invite me to spend the day with their family. It was as close to home as I could get! The food was amazing :) I am so thankful just being able to be here on this world and lived a healthy 26 yrs and counting. It's hard to realize how blessed we are sometimes, I am so happy to have a family who loves me and a home to go home to!

Lets do the right thing

The California Supreme Court has just agreed to hear the legal challenges to the recently passed gay marriage ban!
The state's highest court could have chosen not to hear any of the oppositions to the new amendment to the state constitution.
They've done the right thing today. They've done the right thing in the past. And they will (hopefully) continue to do what's right with regard to our rights! I myself am obviously not a homosexual, but feel very strongly about the right to choose who you love. Aaron and I feel very differently about this and I am sadened by the way what was written in a book by people just like us can have such influence. If a rapist and killer can get married-so can two people of the same sex!

The big 3

So it looks like I have 3 friends. On the other hand, I am very happy for those 3 and the lovely things they had to say about me. So thanks friends-I love you!

I know

Ok, I know it has been forever since I posted and the reasons being are as follows:

1) We moved and the internet in our computer room still does not work, so i havent felt like blogging on someone elses computer. It's like wearing someone elses' underware.
2) Our life is not that exciting.
3) i feel like the lack of comments left on my posts is a way of people telling me our life is not that exciting and i should keep blogging to myself.

I will however say a few things about myself. I love living at our new house, Even though brad and kendall are there alot-J/K i totally love it, and have decided I will work full time and get a nanny when I have kids. I love being married to aaron, i have been surprised at how much we can love eachother when challenges come our way. We will be coming home for christmas and that's about it!

I truley can't describe the appreciation we have for everyone who helped out. My mom first and foremost-what a blessing it was to have you care so much, Rosemary-you need your own cooking show, Dana-this would not of happened without you and your ability to be so creative, my new in-laws-all of you did exactly what I wanted (thanks for putting up with me), my maid of honor liz-you put other maid of honors to shame. My wedding turned out amazing, pictures can't describe but you know if you were there! I am so happy to be married.

Our Funeral

I know, sounds sad. It was, but totally worth celebrating for!!

Our friends Angie and Jen threw us a "Funeral" for aaron's and mine last weekend as single folk. We had no idea what was going on and we came over and everything was black? I was a bit confused at first, but it clicked after a min. We had a great time, got to eat great food! Aaron made jalepenos stuffed with goat and cream cheese with prochuto on top. I don't think most of the words in that sentance were spelled correctly, but you get the point! They were bomb! It was a special night, were so greatful for the friends we have made here in Utah. It made us feel special! Here are some pics of deco at jens house, I didn't get to many good ones :(

If you look close, you can see aaron in a hat. Yes, it's the Gilligans hat- I wasn't fond.

Here is the funeral setting outside

Jen, Me and Angie.

Bridal shower #2

Pottery and Cupcakes :) This was the 2nd bridal shower I was blessed to receive and I loved it! My almost sister in law MK and another friend I have now in St.George, aubrie decided to do something special for me since I am becoming a Mrs. It was such a great surprise- I can't wait to do it again! They took me to 2 of my fav places, Brushfire and 25 Main. Brushfire is a place you can paint your own pottery, which I pretty much suck at, but sure had fun. I did a plate, MK did 3 little ice cream dishes and aubrie did an amazing job at her very own bowl of popcorn!
Then we went to this so cool restaurant called 25 Main, where they have the BEST cupcake I have ever had. And I dont really like cup cakes. MK's youngest chloe was there the whole time and i'm so glad I got to spend time with her.

Aaron is at his bachlore party this weekend, so I am getting ton's done with the wedding-which is 5 weeks away!!!

Feel Good Quotes

I'm a quote junkie. I love the small books you find with quotes in them that always make you cry, usually on your way out of Barnes that you just can't help but pick up and read. I think I like them mostly cuz I have a hard time reading long novels. I'm not very patient and like to get to the point. Here are some that always lift my spirits and remind me how lucky I am.

Before you were conceived I wanted you
Before you were born I loved you
Before you were here an hour I would die for you
This is the miracle of life.

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there.

To laugh often and much;To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.This is to have succeeded.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.

The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.

The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.

Road Trip

We took our first road trip together! It was not what I expected, singing along to madonna and cindy lauper with our hair blowing in the wind and my bandana blowing off my head into the wind, but it was fun. It was more singing along to michael jackson, watching aaron seat dance, and seeing how long I could listen to madonna before he turned it. We went to visit my grandparents, who have never met aaron. They wont be able to make it to the wedding and it had been a while since I saw them. They live in scottsdale, so it was a pretty ride from St. George. Our way there we went through lake powell and I believe some of the north rim of the Grand Canyon. The drive was beautiful!

I would consider moving to scottsdale for this mall. I don't want to talk to much about it cuz it makes me mad how great it is and I dont' live there. Here we are at a great restaurant where aaron tried edamame for the 1st time and actually liked it!!

On our way back we stopped at the Hoover dam, and it was big. There is enough concrete in the dam to build a highway from LA to NY twice or something like that-if you want the facts you will have to ask aaron.

Below is a european man wearing a hot pink shirt, hot pink and black shorts and hot pink slip on's. I thought it was pretty funny.

They are building a new bridge to get across the dam and it is HUGE!!!!
