It's been awhile...

So yes I know that we have been MIA for a long while but lets just say lots have been going on. We are.....expecting our very first baby boy. We couldn't be more excited for our little man to join our family. He is due March 3rd and we have picked the name Declan James Jackson. I love him so much already and when he moves I cant help but smile. I get so excited to know that he is there growing and getting bigger everyday. I cant wait for him to get here. I am also very scared for him to get here becuase for the past almost 3 years it has just been James and I and we pretty much do whatever we want and now that will change. But even with the big change I am so excited for Declan to come and join us. I know that every soon to be parent thing of what will their baby be like and what will he/she act like. I know we can't worry about that because who knows what the future will hold but all I can say I am so excited. I love my little man so much. I will have to post belly pictures and pictures of him on the ultrasound soon. I will make no promises becuase I am not doing very good on the whole posting thing.

James has graduated from BYU-Idaho and we have moved to Arizona near family. It is crazy to not be in Rexburg. We do miss the life we had up there and I knew i would say it but never this quick. haha. I think we miss the things of Rexburg that you cant get anywhere but there. We miss Reed's Chocolate Milk, Horkley's, Apple Beer, Bajio's, New York Burrito and Craigo's. I know we will be back up to visit family because James has family up there and our friends are still up there for the next long while. haha. We do miss them a ton. We hope they come and visit. With that said we do love being near family and all the silliness that it brings.

James is working from home doing writing which he loves. I am working at University of Phoenix and I could be more excited for baby to come and join us. haha. We have started the hunt to look for a new home becuase we want to buy. I know crazy how fast life is going with the new baby and house hunting I am just not sure when it will slow down. We would love to have a new home before he gets here but we shall see what happens.

Here are a few pictures to hold everyone over till I can post some of what has been going on.

Vegas here we come

So we went to Vegas to look at a job for James and George but James decide it was not the place for him so we made sure to live it up and play lots. While we were there we went to Coke World and tried the many different kinds from all over the world but I am a fan of diet coke. James and I also stopped and had one of the best ice creams that i have ever had it was so wonderful.

The big 2 year mark

So 2 years goes by really fast... well for us it did. I can't believe we are already at 2 years but I can say that I have loved every minutes of it. I am so lucky to have James and to have someone put up with me. haha.

We went to this really yummy place called the Cellar. James took me here for my birthday and I loved it so much I surprised him when he got home from work to trip out to this wonderful place. When I called to make reservation they asked if we wanted to sit in the cellar and I said sure why not well little did I know that we would be alone and have our own table with no one to bug us. It was so much fun and it was wonderful to say the least.


We had so much. I haven't been in years but I can honestly say I did alright. We stayed in a hotel room with the Wyatts and we had fun playing games and going down to the pool and hot tub. I guess we can thank Laura for getting married becuase the reason we went down was for her open house.

It has been awhile....

So I have no really reason for not blogging forever expect that I just haven't felt like it. Not to much is going on here but school and work but I do have some pictures from a few trip we have been on. They may or may not be in order but that is ok becuase I am not to worried about it.

James is almost done with school we are now in our last semester and he is pretty excited to be done and looking for jobs. James is going into Advertising so if you know of any jobs let us know. We plan on moving to Az to be near family and I am pretty excited to get down there. I am getting more and more excited to get down there. I want to start packing now but I have to keep reminding myself that I have like 3 months. My work gets done on the July 2nd. Well school gets out on May 27th but I am doing summer school to make more money.

I wish I had more to share but I have just cant think of anything so I will just get to posting the pictures and telling you about our trips.

What is taking so long.....

I know I haven't done the best of jobs of blogging but here is the update starting from Christmas until now.

Well for Christmas this year we got to go home to California. We left on Friday and didn't tell mom and dad that we were leaving. I so super sick the whole way down. I had the flu and it was not so much fun. But we were so glad that we made it safe and without any bad weather or car problems. While we were at home we got to go to the beach and drive the quad around. I forgot how much fun it is to be at home. We also got to go out and pick oranges off the tree just about everyday that we were there. I have a huge problem of buying oranges becuase of the fact that I can go out and pick them off the tree. So while I am in Idaho I usually don't have any unless someone else gets them. For Christmas this year I got a pretty sweet sewing machine that I am so excited to you use and James got the new Tony Hawk Wii game. We both had such a wonderful Christmas and we wouldnt trade it for anything.

So the Sunday after Christmas James, Dan and I jumped into the Civic and headed out to The Bobbi's. We got to spend New Years down there with the family so it was so much fun. It was the first time in 2 years that the whole family got together without having a wedding. I love when the family gets together and can share such great times together. While we were down there we had a ugly sweater contest that Becky Hoopes won because of her sweet dance moves. We also rode on a blow up ball. So you fill it up and climb inside at the top of a hill and roll on down. It was so much fun and it was great when someone would get out of the ball and couldn't walk straight with me being one of the them. We hated to leave at the end of the trip but both James and I had to get back to work.

I turned the big 26 this year and it was a ton of fun. James took me out to a really nice restaurant and when we got home he surprised me with having all of our friends over with cake and balloons. When I walked in after dinner the Hymas' and the Wyatts jumped up from behind the counter and scared me so bad. I am so super lucky to have friends that can come over and play. James got me a gift card to go get my nails done and super cute coat. He is so good at picking things out for me I just love him so much. Just a few days ago I decided to do the Teton Dam 10k. I am pretty excited and have started my training. I need to pick it up because June is going to get here before I know it. Other then getting ready for my 10k I am just working and trying to keep the house clean.

James has been doing homework like crazy and is doing really well in school. He is working and we have been talking about to do after we are all done with school and as of right now we are looking into Vegas but we will let you know what happens next.
