3 Years!

     Today is our 3 year anniversary.  I can't believe how fast the time has gone.  Everyday we fall more in love with each other and learn to appreciate each other more.  There has been some interesting moments during the last 3 years but they have made us stronger.  There are moments when I have to repeat a quote from "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," which is, "I love you but I don't have to like you right now."  That usually make us both laugh and forget about our differences and the argument that we are having. 
     We had a pretty low key anniversary day today.  We both went to work and David surprised me by coming home earlier than I thought he would.  We picked up take out from Cafe Rio and came home and watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.  We have just spent the rest of the night on the couch watching TV and relaxing.  This weekend we are trying to plan a short get-away somewhere but haven't decided where yet.  We better get something figured out quick!
     I love you Honey Buns and look forward to an eternity together!  To eternity and beyond!!!

     Today I was sustained and set apart to be the Young Women President in my ward.  I am really excited for this calling.  Life will be busy with this calling and school but I know that with the help of my Heavenly Father I will be able to get everything done that I need to.  I know that Heavenly Father knows what I can handle and will help me through everything that I will face. 
     During the past couple of weeks since I first met with the Bishop and he asked me to accept this calling my love for the girls in my ward has increased so much.  I know that they are all daughters of our Heavenly Father and I have been called to teach them their divine roles and prepare them for their future families.  I am grateful for the opportunity that I have been given and hope that I will fulfill my calling the way my Heavenly Father wants me to.  I am grateful for the examples that my Young Women leaders always were to me as I was growing up.  They helped prepare me for this calling.  I am grateful for my counselors and secretary for the love and support that they give to me.  I am excited to work with a new counselor and get to know her better.  I know that the church is true and that the Young Women program has a great purpose. 


     I'm proud to announce that David and I have successfully made it through another semester of school together. We have had a week of freedom and it has been wonderful. It is so nice to come home from work and just do whatever we want to do and not have to worry about homework. If it ever gets warm we are looking forward to evenings spent in the yard, going hiking, and visiting family. I love the summer!
     I have completed the first year of the dental hygiene program. In one more year I will be graduated! I am so looking forward to that day. I have decided to get my bachelors degree in dental hygiene. I was totally against getting my bachelors degree until I realized how close I already am to getting it. With a bachelors degree in dental hygiene you don't get paid any more than if you have an associates degree but you are able to teach. I don't ever plan on teaching but as I was talking to a family friend who is a hygienist she recommended that I get my bachelors degree just because it might be a benefit to me with how many dental hygiene schools there are now in Utah. Because of this I am taking classes this summer. Not exactly what I wanted to do with my summer but I don't think it will be too bad. I just have 3 classes and they are all online. The classes are easy and one of the classes is only seven weeks long. I decided to just get it done this summer instead of going back to school next summer or fall after I have graduated with my associates degree.
