The Lamb of God

My father dear shared with me something very special a couple of months ago. He was personally asked to be part of The Lamb of God by Rob Gardner, sacred musical performance about the final hours of our Savior. Will, my mom, and I had the chance to see this performance (that my dad was a part of) in the SLC Tabernacle. Most beautiful musical performance I have ever seen. Here is a preview of what I love. If you get the chance, get the CD. It will change your life. It did mine.

2 1/2 years later...

What's wrong with me? It's taken two and half years to finally take initiative and print off Will and my wedding pictures. Well, I haven't officially printed them yet, but I'm getting started today. It's been on my to-do list for awhile.

I bet you're thinking, "Wow. She must not get anything done, since it takes her two and half years to get one thing on her list done!" Am I right? Don't worry, this was one of my floater to-dos. Meaning, it's not a necessity. I have a lot of floaters. Poor guys. I'll take care of you in a few months. Maybe.

Back to my wedding photos. I don't want to have to go to the computer or watch my wedding video to remember that special day. All I have on my walls are our engagement pictures. Our wedding was a lot cooler than our engagement photo session. Will did not want to be there. Will does not enjoy getting his picture taken. He's also not a fan of someone telling him how to hold his girl, especially hates being told when and how to kiss. PDA is a no no on our side of town. Which is aight with me. I'm not a fan of people making out in public, that's what a locked room is for.

Story time:

Will and I were in a student-married ward our first year and half of being married, to give you an idea. We were walking out from stake conference, all spiritually uplifted, famished, and ready to go home and eat. As we get in our car, this couple, attempting to go, who knows where, stop behind our car, and start making out. Was this a joke? We were trying to stay cool, just coming from a great, holy meeting and all. I couldn't resist, I honked the horn. I was cooking a delectable something in my slow cooker that was sitting all alone at home. It was calling my name and these hooligans were standing in between me and my yummy meal. That is the kind of PDA Will and I spit on.

But, the wedding photo session was better. Maybe because the stress of actually getting married had passed. Plus, we told our photographer that we specifically don't want to kiss for him. We only have one picture of us kissing on our wedding day!

Off to print off some wedding pitchas! YEAH!

Mother's Day is not too far away. Which has me thinking, I not only get to be celebrated on my birthday, but when I become a mother, I get to be celebrated on Mothers Day too. Score!

That's not really what's going through my noggin'. As Will and I become more married than we were yesterday, we are that much closer to becoming parents . I mean, no, I am not currently pregnant and we aren't trying just yet. I'm the kind of person that thinks ahead. This is me thinking ahead. I want to be the best parent. How do you prepare yourself for such a gianormous calling? I guess you can educate yourself, spirutally prepare for those little ones, and pray that you will be able to guide those little souls into a world separated from the one we live in now. If that makes ANY sense. I'm getting deep. Uh oh.

I just know we live in a very wicked world, but also a beautiful one at that. We just need to learn how to dodge certain temptations that will cause us to stray away from the righteous path. I am very excited to become a mother. When that day should get here, I want to be a mother that my baby can depend on, a strong woman. I am the youngest of seven children, and I watched my mom at her happiest, saddest, and strongest times. I loved her the entire time, even the times where she didn't know if this was the right job for her. She inspires me to be a great mom. I can't wait for her to be the grandmother of my babies. I also want to give credit to my mother-in-law. Sweet woman. Devoted to her entire family. 9 children! Will talks very highly of his mother, makes me appreciate her even more, especially for raising such a sweet boy, I mean man! Mothers are wonderful women, that possess beautiful talents, and that's being able to nurture, support, and love unconditionally.

"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers."

Coconut Milk...Fattening?

I was mistaken, I guess it isn't. In my last post, I was talking about how coconut milk was contributing to my love handles. Apparently, it's got the fat our bodies need. Which is great news, because I LOVE coconut milk.


I continually come to my blog to write a new post, but nothing seems exciting enough to post. Not that I'm trying to WOO anyone. I just figure, if it's not exciting why post. My life is staying at a consistent pace as of now. Nothing too extraordinary has happened lately. I guess that's a good thing. I'm still progressing to become a nurse. Just have to get through these pre-nursing courses, then I can go ahead and apply to the program. I will definitely be posting about that in the near future. Real-life school starts for me next Monday. I'm actually quite excited. This BYU Independent Study course definitely made me realize how wonderful instructors truly are. I mean, I've done fine on my own, it's just much harder teaching yourself. I don't regret taking it through Independent Study, just learned more than just Anatomy while taking this course. I made this last night and it was very good. As well as very fattening. Thank you coconut milk for contributing to my love handles.

And, I did not use the lite coconut milk. FYI. If you decide to make this, avoid looking at the nutrition facts. Aight.
