Our Most Perfect Day {The Temple}

May 3rd, 2012 will always live down as one of the best days in my entire life. It was absolutely perfect, thanks to the help of so many special people. Everything went as planned, and even though it was a bit of blur {and super windy}, I loved every.single.minute.

 {Mr. & Mrs. Trujillo}

{My parents are incredible.. to say the least. They have been the best examples of what I want in a marriage, and they helped me every step of the way until I found my perfect match. They mean the world to me.}
{Meet Stella. She is my best friend from AZ and my #1 bridesmaid :)}

{My Fam. They traveled from all over to be here for our special day, and I couldn't be more grateful!}

{Me & My Boys. The best brothers I could EVER ask for}

{Ted's family. They are SO amazing, I feel so lucky to marry into such a special family! I have always felt so close to them, and I can't wait for all the fun we have ahead of us! I'm so happy to have so many new sisters!!! I love them!}

{Teddy & his boys}

{My beautiful friends. I feel so incredibly lucky!}

My cousin Jamey is our hero. He made us the most unbelievable wedding video to capture our special day. I might be a little biased, but I love it! I have probably watched it over 100 times now... embarrassing.
Here is the short version :) enjoy!

Our day was perfect and I have never felt so much joy in my entire life. The fact that I get to spend every day with this handsome fella makes me the happiest girl. I loved planning our wedding and the excitement that led up to it. But even more than that, I absolutely love having our own life together as a Mr. and Mrs.

I'm a lucky, lucky girl!
Wait, can you even believe it has been 2 months?!

{all over again}

So almost THREE weeks ago {Can you even believe it has been that long?! Holy cow, time flies!!} I married a very special boy. And since then, we have started a very happy life together. I know I have so much to share about our perfect day, our lovely honeymoon, and our new home, but those posts will come soon. Promise.

Today, I'm sharing about my new life with my dreamy husband. I know it won't always be easy, but so far-- this guy has made being a newlywed ideal.
--There are those dumb days when everything we have to do starts piling up. Insurance, moving, everything we have to buy, school, work, etc. My stress levels get the best of me. But this guy knows how to just hug me and promises me that "everything will be just fine". He's so right- our world didn't end, and I feel at peace all over again.

--As we drive in the car, he reaches over and holds my hand. Then every once in a while he pulls it up and gives me a little kiss, and I get butterflies all over again.

--I'll admit it, I was a little worried to get married because I come from a house where my parents could do anything. And I mean anything. So I didn't know what would happen when I got married and they weren't there to fix every little problem I had. But then I married this guy, and he was an instant handyman. He built our shelf, fixed the water heater to get us hot water {HALLELUJAH!!}, made us a very great entertainment system for our room :), has killed multiple spiders {if that doesn't make him an insta-stud, I don't know what will!} and every time- I fell all over again.

--It's so hard leaving for work in the morning.. But when I get the little hugs from behind while I'm making our lunches it's ok we have to go, because I get to come home to the same place as him at night. And I get excited all over again! 

--When we're walking on the sidewalk and he switches me sides so he's by the street, I feel protected and safe all over again.

--A few nights ago, my cousin gave us our wedding video! We couldn't wait to watch it, but we didn't have our couch yet. So there we were, just cuddling all the floor, watching the perfect day that was the beginning of the rest of our lives. We were both on cloud 9 that whole day. I couldn't tell you any other time I have ever felt that happy, and that sure of the life we had chosen to live. Lying there on the floor, with my husband holding me-- I felt all those feelings of pure joy all over again {every time we watched it. Yes, multiple times!}.
--After a quick run down to the garbage we locked ourselves out.. No key, no phone to call someone with a key. Nothing. So I was going to climb over and through the window, but he insisted that I stay safe on the patio and he would do it instead. So I just sat watched as my monkey of a husband moved the screen, climbed around, and jumped through our window. I laughed and laughed, all over again. {well, I laughed once we were in safe and sound, good work Fancy Face}

--Hearing him talk about our kids we're going to have one day, and watching him play with our nieces and nephews makes me fall head over heels- you guessed it- all over again.

Sorry about the sappy love post. But this guy kind of means the world to me, and I thought you should know some of the reasons why. ;) I promise there won't be such a long break between my next post. I'm extremely excited to get our wedding pictures and show them to you! Let's hope we get them soon! And our little place is becoming more "ours" by the day! Can't wait to share! xo

Sometimes I feel like my life goes so much faster than I can handle. And sometimes I get sick of dealing with it all. But then Pinterest gives me this...


And I realize how lucky I am to be in this situation. I think sometimes, "life" thinks it is funny and makes us believe we can't handle what it throws us. And for me, it has just been one of those weeks. It's days like these when I have to keep reminding myself to take a breath, and relax. Because it really will all work out.

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I haven't always loved this month, but it has definitely without a doubt become my most favorite since I have gotten older. It is so full of love and fun, and since it has been spring pretty much the entire time- it has been that much better! 
Valentine's Day was absolutely perfect. I spent the whole night with my favorite person. We ate and watched a movie in our amazing fort {no I am not 5 years old..}. At first, Ted laughed too. But then his creative juices started flowing and we created this masterpiece..
{The twinkle lights made all the difference}
It was the perfect day, and the best way to celebrate our two year anniversary! 

Then my 21st birthday decided to show up. Saying I was excited would be quite the understatement. Not that being "legal" will change anything for me, but I am now officially the age that I will be when I get married! Woohoo! It was the absolute best. birthday. ever. It started with getting the day off (I work for the best guys..), lunch with most of my favorite people, a fiance that got off work early and completely spoiled me!
He gave me ReAL Salt Lake Season tickets! I am absolutely ecstatic!! 
Then surprised me with the Melting Pot for dinner! It was absolutely incredible. Most fun, delicious, and romantic dinner I have ever been to! We were there for almost 3 hours and I loved every single minute! We both left feeling so full, but we couldn't have had a better time. We went to "This Means War" afterwards to finish off my happiest day.

It has been the best February, I am so sad to see it go! But with March coming up, we have lots to look forward to. One of my most bestest friends is getting MARRIED, Disney on Ice {We are taking Jude & GG, like I said- I am not 5}, we get to take our engagement pictures, and time until the wedding is really starting to wind down! {64 days left, in case you were wondering..} yay!! 

Happy Leap Year! Bring it on March :)

{i love you, fancy face}

Valentine's Day has quickly turned into one of my most favorite days since I started dating Teddy. There is just something about having a day that is supposed to be completely dedicated to us. 

{Bee's Game July 24th, 2011}
This Valentine's is especially special because we are celebrating two whole years of us. These two years have been so full of joy and love, and I can't imagine ever feeling happier! Every good thing in my life starts with him.This boy is something special, and I am so glad I get to call him mine. I'm so glad we are a "we". So glad we're bffe, fancy face. 

If our last two years have been this ideal, eternity with you sounds pretty divine.. I love you best friend, I've never had a better time with anyone. Thank you for bringing this whole new level of joy into my life, you are my everything. So Happy Valentine's Day, Love. And happy two years! I have a feeling, it's only going to get better from here.. :) xo

Sometimes, life gives you lemons. And sometimes life gives you these..

And when life gives you something as sweet as this, you can't do anything but love every single thing about it. So it's time to celebrate, because this little guy is well worth it.

Happy first year, baby Ez. We can't imagine this world without you! 

{If you want to see some more amazing pictures of this little guy, click here. You won't be disappointed. Promise.}

{Our Beginning}

Well, I guess it's not quite our real beginning, but the beginning of our little blog! We can't wait to get married, and we are so excited to officially have a blog!! (Well I guess the second one is more for me..) So welcome! I hope you enjoy the little posts to document our life together! 

We have been dating for almost 2 years, and just over a month ago my love asked me to tie the knot. Without any hesitation I said YES!! I mean who wouldn't want to spend eternity with him?? He is so perfect for me. I cannot wait to go through life with him by my side! 

Now if May 3rd would just get here already!!!
