i have seriously been so blessed in my life that i am constantly always grateful for something and sometimes don't even know what i have done to deserve these wonderful blessings.
i am thankful for...

-my testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel.
-the power of prayers and the personal revelation that is received through them.
-my family and especially my parents who have come so far and given so much to us kids.

-our loving prophet and those who came before him who provide us with the guidance, direction, and knowledge we need in our lives.
-my husband brian who i fall in love with everyday.
-brian's support in whatever i want to do, his playfulness and honesty.
-the sunshine.
-the music that can change our moods and feelings.
-my experience at byu-idaho and what it gave me: a strengthened testimony, knowledge, a greater love for my family, my city, performing, dancing, learning, and most of all a greater and deeper relationship with my heavenly father.

november already?

so i think i officially suck at this whole blogging thing. and now i'm not sure where to start..?
umm lets see during october we went to bates nut farm but brian wasn't up for driving that far just for a pumpkin you could get for much cheaper at the grocery store. so he decided that we would go if we went to the buffet close to the farm as well. i am definitely not a huge buffet person considering the fact that i get full super fast but none the less it was a fun fall day spent together and i'm really sad we forgot the camera! but we got a great pumpkin and we figured out we weren't the best of carvers :)

on halloween night brian had signed up to work overtime at the aztec game so i was a little bummed but overtime is always good so i was very grateful for that. so while brian worked the game i went and played with my family at my aunt and uncle's house with all the cousins. i think this year was the first year i did not dress up for halloween...but i'll do better next year!

aaannnnd just this past week i found a doctors office to do my externship at! for the past month or so i've been calling and waiting for calls and stressing about finding one in time to get all the paper work completed before starting in january. i am so excited to have finally found something. although it is not an ob/gyn office like i hoped its a family practice. but it is only 1, i repeat, ONE mile down the street from our apartment! and the best part is that they are super super flexible and basically said just let us know when you want to come in. which works great because i'll be finishing my last two general classes and working during my externship. i'm looking forward to finally being able to do what i studied and practiced and be able to learn more! the only downfall is that this office, i found out last friday when i went to meet them, looks to me like it's a little unorganized and too small for how many doctors are practicing there. it's an old building and definitely needs some updating inside...there were stacks of files and charts on the floor along with a sharps container and other injection stuff.. i wasn't too sure about all this mess but hopefully my need for organization won't ruin my experience.
