See You Later July

Call me crazy but,
Yesterday I got excited for a moment about Christmas:)
I know it's July and the weather is beautiful right now,
But the holidays speak to my heart
And I am quite excited for them:)
I told the husband about this Christmas joy I was feeling,
And we decided it was best that we go and get ourselves some snow cones to keep summer alive!
We rode our bikes around our little town,
And it was a beautiful summer evening:)
I almost couldn't believe I was wishing
This wonderful weather away!
I'm grateful I live in a place where I
Can experience all the seasons,
Idaho really is the place to be folks!!
For now I'll keep eating my snow cone,
While I sit on pinterest and plan for Christmas:)
It's the best of both worlds I tell ya!

By the way,
It's August tomorrow in case anyone didn't realize that until today like me, ha!

Hello Summer!!

We are officially out of school,
And can I tell you,
We celebrated by taking a trip to Rupe's and getting some ice cream
And a scotch and soda!:)
P.s if you haven't ever been to Rupe's,
You are missing out on life!
My goal for the summer is to read all the
Harry Potter books!
I'm 22 years of age and haven't read
Harry Potter,
Talk about missing out on life!
I'm just glad husband and I have some time to spend together:)

The Gang Is Married

I have had the GREATEST friends growing up!:)
I have never had to worry about being in sticky situations or dealing with drama,
I have always been able to by myself,
And have ALWAYS and forever had the greatest support from my friends!:)

On Friday,
The last of the gang was married off!:)
It was so special being together in the temple as friends with our husbands,
And seeing Tanece and Rhett be married:)
All I could think as I was sitting in the temple was,
"We did it:)!"
All those late night talks of finding a tall, dark, and handsome husband,
Getting married in the temple,
And attending each others weddings,
It finally happened:)
I never thought we all would actually grow up and
Move past high school,
But we did and it's been fun to see where our individual adventures have taken us:)

The gang doesn't get together very often
Because of our busy schedules,
But when we do the public better WATCH OUT!!!
Because it's just like old times and like we have only been separated for 5 minutes!
We are always laughing and catching each other up on the good times:)

One thing that I have always loved about Tanece is that she was always there for each of us,
She never let us down,
You could always count on her to make a trip to town with you or do something at the spur of the moment!
I am so glad Tanece found someone that makes her so happy and that compliments her so well:)
I can't wait to see where Tanece and Rhett's adventures take them:)
I stole this picture from another person
That was at the wedding,
Because it is just so stinking cute!:)
They were beaming from ear to ear when they came out of the temple!
We really are best friends because we each got married during a different season!
Holly got married in the Spring,
Kallie in the Fall,
Me in the Winter,
And Tanece in the Summer!
If that doesn't say best friends,
I don't know what does, haha!:)
 Here's those tall, dark and handsome husbands I was talking about:)
At the luncheon,
Tanece's Dad got up and said a little something something,
And it was so sweet:)
He talked about a quote that hung in one of his children's home that said,
"Together forever, no matter what."
My eyes just filled up with tears because
That quote is so true!
I am so grateful that I have my Sam to call mine forever, no matter what,
And that all of my friends have found that
As well in their spouse.
It was a beautiful day,
And I am so grateful for great friends:)

Adventures From Last Week

Last week was a BLAST!:)
Husband and I took on some fun adventures,
And it just reminded me once again of how lucky I am
To call Sam my guy:)

Our adventures started Tuesday when we were asked to be on a marriage panel for mutual for the  Young Women!
There was an older couple that had
Been married for 50+ years,
A middle aged couple that had been married 15 years,
And then Sam and I:)
The girls came up with such fun questions to ask us,
And I really just loved talking about my Sam and the life we have created together:)
One of the girls asked which way the
Toilet paper faces in our homes,
I exclaimed,
"I wish I could tell you, Sam never replaces the
toilet paper after it runs out!"
The panel just reminded me how fun marriage is and how blessed I am to share forever with Sam,
Even if he forgets to replace the toilet paper sometimes;)

On Friday we bought tickets for the drive-in to see Minions and Jurassic World!:)
I had never been to the drive-in here in Rexburg and it was SO much fun!:)
We invited our friends Harry and Alisa to come with us,
And between our two cars we were laughing so hard!!
Minions is must!:)
I wish I could give more a review on Jurassic World,
But Sam and I fell asleep through most of it, ha!
It was such a fun summer night though,
Drive-in's are kind of my new favorite thing!!
Sometimes through all the craziness of school and work,
It's nice to have a week where you eat a lot of cookie dough ice cream and spend time with your best friend:)

I think the only thing that would have made last week the,
Is if Pretty Little Liars would have been on!
I didn't get the memo that there was no episode last week,
It was a very dramatic moment in the Cannon household, haha!;)

Husband and I have two weeks left of school,
And then the real adventures begin!:)
We are excited to have a break and spend our summer together:)

Happy Monday Lovers!:)

I Love You America!

What a weekend!!:)
Husband and I spent the 4th of July holiday in
Island Park with my family,
And we had a BLAST!!:)
I told myself to keep my phone close so I
Could take lots of pictures!!
And of course I didn't think about taking pictures until the fireworks came out, ah!

My parents bought some kayaks and that is what
Sam and I did most of the time!:)
Once I got the paddle turned the right way
And could keep up with Sam,
I was unstoppable!;)
Sam and I also made it a goal to not get sunburned,
Even with the seven coats of sunscreen,
We managed to come out looking like lobsters!!!
It was worth it though,
Yesterday was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!:)

Funny story!!!
Sam confessed to me that he doesn't like tube riding,
And for anyone who knows me,
He told me there was no way I was getting
Him out on the water in a tube!
Luckily though when we got out on the boat there was an eight-year old on board,
And Sam agreed to do the 3-man tube if Lilly
(the eight-year old) was in the tube!
We took a smooth tube ride around the island,
And I know Sam LOVED it,
He had a grin on his face the whole time!;)

We ate so much good food!!
Like if we are being honest here,
I went back for 5ths most of the time because I just couldn't get enough, ha!!
Also, whoever brought the bottles of root beer,
Bless you!!!
I had to sneak a few home they were so delicious!:)

I'm so grateful to live in this beautiful country:)
I'm grateful for those who serve and sacrifice so much to protect each one of us and our country:) 
I'm grateful I had a weekend away with
My lover and family:)
I am proud to be an American:)
This was the only picture we took!
On our way to see the fireworks,
On a boat, out on the lake,
It was magical:)
I love my adventures with my sweet, husband Sam:)
