Time gone by......

So much has happened since June that I have failed to blog about due to the fact I have not taken the time to sit down, slow down or really I guess didn't even think about sharing what was going on in my world.

Shawn and Jade

As most of you know, in a week I will be Mrs. Mayer!!! I am so excited to start my life with Shawn and can't wait to see what kind of journey lies ahead for us. It seems like just yesterday I met Shawn and before long we were inseperatable. We have so much in common that sometimes we say the exact same thing at the exact same time and then we just look at each other and laugh. I used to think that I would never find that person who would just "Get Me" or understand me and all that I have been through, but well I have found that man and so much more. I love Shawn more than I ever thought was possible to love someone. I love the way he looks at me and the way that without words he can make me feel like nothing in this world matters but me. Don't get me wrong we have our rough spots that is for sure but at the end of the day who doesn't?? Yeah that's what I thought we all have those times. I have learned that we have these times to pull us together and make us stronger as a couple......what is life or relationships without trials.....easy and life is not made to be easy! So here are some of our recent family/engagement pictures that I should have shared forever ago!!

Well I just felt like sharing some of what has been going on in my world which is so crazy these days with wedding plans and everything else! I will be back blogging after the everything settles from the wedding! Take care

Wedding Bells......

It is finally here and it is so right! I got engaged to the love of my life Shawn and we are going to be getting married on December 5, 2009! WOOHOO Yeah, I am a little excited....okay a lot excited but kinda stressed at the same time. Good thing I have my sister and mom to get things rolling with the wedding plans!

You know to be honest all these years I have ran from committment afraid to be hurt or have a failed marriage....but there is something so different about Shawn that I knew from the very beginning that he was the one and I would be with him forever! I love how well Shawn fits in with our family and how he continues to make me feel about myself! We couldn't have found better matches for each other which is kinda freaky and exciting all at the same time! I can't wait to be Mrs. Mayer!!!!

Trip to Galveston

WOW.....I am so bad at this blogging thing and every time I have some to blog about my mind wonders elsewhere. Well for the last 9 months I have been dating a wonderful man that makes me so happy!! Shawn has 2 beautiful children in which I have the opportunity to spend quite a bit of time with when he has them and it is a blast! Well for Memorial Day weekend we took a rode trip with Brooklyn 5 and Jonny 2 to Galveston Island Texas with several of my close friends that I consider family. I want to share some of the cute pictures from our trip and give you the chance to see the man that makes my heart melt and treats me like a Queen.....I do have to say that we are the perfect match for each other and I could not have asked for a better man to grow with! With that said check out our fun weekend!

I have been able to assist Shalene in times of need and it is amazing the things that she comes up with, I on the other hand am creative....but not so much in the artistic manner that Shalene is. I am the musical child that is where my talent lies and I love it!!!

Christmas time is near......

As Christmas approaches I find myself thinking about what this season means to me. I find myself wanting to be around the people that I love the most in this world.....MY FAMILY!! I can't even begin to tell you all how much my family means to me, extended family as well. I feel so blessed to have such an amazing family that has always been there for me no matter what. My sister believe it or not is Angel....many many times when my life has fallen apart she has been there to pick me back up, dust me off and send me on my way....thank you Shalene I love you! My Brother who no matter what was my best friend.....he was always there for me as a kid and has been an amazing example to me over the years. I recently was cleaning out a bin in my closet and came across a box that had all the letters Hal wrote me while he was on his mission. Let me tell you how I sat reading these amazing letters that filled my heart once again and reminded me how much my brother loves and cares for me....Thanks Bubba, I love you! My Mom who I can call no matter what and she is always there for me, even though sometimes I do not like what she has to say, 9 times out of 10 she is always right. How she is always right I will never know....I guess it is a mothers thing. My Mom is so giving, loving and makes me feel loved in many different ways. Thanks Mom....I love you for being such an amazing woman and a great example in my life. My Dad who has always been my hero, the sound of his voice calms me every fear, his gentle touch and embrace makes me feel so loved and his encouraging words of advice when he knows I am having a hard time touch me more then he will ever know. Thanks Daddy for being such a loving Father and Worthy Priesthood holder!
My Kennedy, such a beautiful spirit that has touched my soul since the day she was born. I love it when she gives me hugs and kisses, when I make her giggle and when we chase each other. Kennedy makes me realize that life has so much to offer and so much to be thankful for...Thanks Kennedy...Aunt Jade loves you. My Jordan, a gift that was sent here from Opa at the perfect time in my life. I say that Jordan is an angel that was sent here to get me through the tough times I was experience and to help me move on....she is such a special little spirit as well, every time she smiles at me my heart melts. When I am having a rough time I call and talk to my Boogie and it makes my day worth while. Thanks Jordan.....Aunt Jade loves you. I am so THANKFUL for my girls they are an so special to me. My Sister-in-law who loves my brother unconditionally and makes him happy every day. She gave our family the gift of Kennedy which we are all so very thankful for. Janine thanks for being such a wonderful mother and wife.....I love you. My Brother-in-law who help make Boogie, who is always willing to tell me how he truly feels no matter what and who wants so bad to see me happy. Thank you for making Shalene happy and being such a great Father....I love you! My Oma and Opa, who always showed us what true love was all about. For the example that they were to us and our parents with their love for the Gospel and their Family. We will forever love you both and thank you for being the Best Grandparents ever. And to all my other family members I love you all and I hope you all have a great Holiday Season with the ones you love the most. I am attaching some pics that no one has posted yet that I love. I hope you all enjoy as much as I do!!

In Memory of Herbert Elmer Jordan.......

Ode to Herbert E. Jordan aka OPA

I could not get to sleep last night because you were on my mind.
You were always the brilliant one yet so loving and so kind.
It's hard to think that you are in heaven now and we can't see face to face.
You will always be known as a sweet husband, father, grandfather, son, and brother that we all loved and adored.
But the courts on high needed you more and they called you home.
God gave us a promise that we must believe, and if we only listen, it will help us when we grieve.
Our dear Lord loved us all so much He gave us the the knowledge that most people lack.
For God gave us his beloved son, so that we can all one day live together forever.
Families are Forever, need I say anymore?
He comforted me last night because I was crying,
For the one I missed and loved so dear,
He promised us he would comfort us and help calm our fears.
So think about this promise when you're feeling sad and blue.
Someday we will all meet again, we are told Families are Forever
"It's wonderful, isn't it?" And it's really so very true!!

We Miss you Opa, I love you!!
Merry Christmas

"I want you to get swept away. I want you to levitate. I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a dervish.-Meet Joe Black"

We are all seeking that special person who is right for us...but if you've been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there's no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you, yourself, are wrong in some way, and seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. It isn't until you finally run up against your deepest demons - your unsolvable problems - the ones that make you who you truly are, that you are ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you are looking for.You are looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: The "right" wrong person," someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, "This is the problem I want to have."

"Just because you're lost doesn't mean that your compass is broken."

My greatest opportunity for improvement? Trusting my compass. Remembering that intelligence is only as good as what you do with it. Not second guessing the Guide, and trusting His voice.
