So what's new??

So let's just say school is hard.... I am trying so hard not to quit but every assignment and exam is telling me... "honey, maybe you are not cut out for this."I have been trying to figure out the best major for me. I used to think that was education but my "holding on by a thread" attitude for school might not get me through that one. I have been thinking about writing a book.. I know my blog isn't great but I have a lot of good ideas for romance novels, being the romantic that I am. I think it will be the hardest just to start it, and just to pull all of the ideas together. Also I have another problem in my life right now... I want a baby. I know... I am too young, I need to live more of my life first. But what people don't get is that by having a child I will be living my life! I am sooo excited to be a mom and I honestly think that is my calling in life. I just pray that I have a healthy body that will give me that. Right now though, Nate and I are moving into a new apartment in City Creek and we are spending a little more than we can probably afford on it. That will delay the baby making process for a little bit. Also... My cute mother-in-law and father-in-law were just called as mission presidents and are leaving in July! They don't know where they are going yet but we know it will be 3 very long years. They are the perfect people for this calling and I know that they will do an amazing job wherever they get called. I am so thankful for the life I have and I just hope that I can have a little guidance to what I need to do next.


  1. I think you need to listen to the other half of you that is saying "you are very young." A baby changes EVERYTHING. Marriage, life, your body. An apartment is no place to raise a child or family either. Save some money up, because children are expensive. Ultimately your decision is yours and yours alone, I'd advise you finish school, but that's the teacher in me. Finishing is SUPER important. I was no stellar student and I made it through> I will openly share I graduated college with a "C" average!

  2. babies are the best thing ever! seriously! they change everything but you wouldn't change anything about it ever! when it's the time to have one it's YOUR TIME, not anybody elses!!! we're in an apartment, thats how people do it! it doesnt matter where you live as long as there is love in the homE! LOVE YOU MISS YOU!

  3. The right time to have a child is when you feel like it's the right time. Fast, pray and ask your Heavenly Father and He will guide you.
    Everybody told me and my hubby that we were crazy when I got pregnant at 21. I hadn't graduated from College. I do now use the distance learning program from BYUH and I'm happier that I ever thought I could be.
    I always have one quote in my mind: "Motherhood is near to divinity. It is the highest, holiest service to be assumed by mankind. It places her who honors its holy calling and service next to the angels."
    You don't need a big house or something like that to raise children. You both need confidence that what you do is the right thing because then there's love in the home!

  4. Thanks for the advice and input!
