In other news...i am still sick. awesome. and have bruised my side from coughing so hard.
Jace got the job at Wells Fargo! We have lots to figure out...jobs, school, etc., but i think this will be the start of something really good for us!
We still have roaches in our apartment. Are you shocked? Because i am so far beyond that now... I think i have actually reached a zen place...i look at a roach and all i can think is "another one. wow."
Jace and I are planning on moving at the end of January! (3 times in 3 years)
Christmas has snuck up on me! It doesn't feel like Christmas to me...and i don't know if its the yo-yo weather, the fact that I'm working full time, or what...but its weird! We have been decorated and presents wrapped since the 1st. We are just finishing up helping my family get all their lights up and tree decorated. 4 days left! crazy.

As soon as he got home we went delivering! It was fun to connect with some people and it was fun to think of when the other people would realize they had cookies hanging on their door.
I don't have any pictures...i was too busy whooping up on Jace to deviate.
that's right. thank you ticket to ride. i rock.
:) and thanks jace for little Caesars and crazy bread. mmmm.
My camera's battery was dead.
My phone's camera stinks...
We waited too long to do this and all the stores are already putting christmas on major sale and taking it down.
(DID I MISS SOMETHING?? IT WAS ONLY THE SECOND WEEK OF DECEMBER!?)
regardless...we found what we came for. without further adieu....presenting OUR ornaments!
so yes, a ticket stub ornament represented a part of our 2011.

You wake up all excited because IT WAS SO REAL.
only to realize that it really really isnt.
Last night i dreamed that we had to send out new Christmas cards (horrifying thought by the way) because we found out we were expecting a baby. And we wanted everyone we loved to know that it finally happened.
Then i woke up. And got all sad. and got even more sad when i realized i needed to go to work and i was really comfy cozy in my warm bed. LAME.
On a positive note: Jace has a job interview with Wells Fargo today...and that could totally be awesome for us. So pray for him!!! and keep your fingers crossed for good measure :)

Does this to ricky gervais' character because he talks too much:
And then he sounds like a chicken...and very foolish.

I am Ricky Gervais' character...except instead of a chicken i sound like this:
and yes, i do feel very foolish. and no, i dont think i'll be dying anytime soon.
but i really really want my voice back.

Struggling in the fact that Jace's career is taking much longer to jump start than anticipated.
...in the fact that I'm not doing ANYTHING related to my chosen career.
...in the fact that we don't like our apartment and need to move.
...in the fact that sickness is inevitable this time of year.
...in the fact that we cant get a home of our own.
...in the fact that we cant have a baby.
...in the fact that both our families are going through tough times and i feel the weight of them as if they were my own.
Where would the growth come from if we didn't have to go through tough times?
How would we know how to get down on our knees and plead for help from a loving Heavenly Father?
How would we learn to ask for help, forgiveness, compassion, understanding, and strength?
How would we learn to rely on others?
I realized that I'm not doing enough on my part. I need to put my trust in the Lord and that all will work out the way it needs to.
I promise to make the best of my situation.
i HAVE a home, plenty of food, clothes on my back and way too many in my closet, and more than adequate transportation.
i have a job.
i have a loving husband.
i have a great family.
i have adorable nieces and a nephew...one of which is a newborn <3
i have a loving Heavenly Father.
i have the knowledge of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

(the mis-shapened head from her entry would've given it away anyways)
I'm so proud of Melanie and Jeff--both were so calm--so not how i would've been.
She came Thanksgiving morning at 12:25 AM and weighed in at 6Lbs 3 Oz.
She is so super tiny!

- Pleased and relieved: "they were thankful that the war was finally over"; "I was very thankful to be alive".
- Expressing gratitude and relief: "a thankful prayer".
1. feeling or showing appreciation of kindness.
I feel...both. So much. I have so much to be thankful for...but more than that i have so much that i am grateful for (to me being grateful is a more intense expression, more sincere...if you will).
Here is my list that i am GRATEFUL and THANKFUL for today:
(in no particular order...)
UM and real quick...the last 4 pictures?? Yeah.
I pretty much have the cutest nieces and nephew around.

So Jace and I had a fast courtship...2 months till we got engaged and 4 more till we got married. In today's standard that's insane.
well...so be it.
the engagement was fast for me, but the wedding couldn't have come sooner. once i made the decision to move forward, dang it! i wanted to move forward!
Anyways...there were some nights where we just sat outside and asked each other questions. What was our fav color (mine is blue, his is green), fav breakfast food (both of us prefer french toast, scrambled eggs, and bacon!), place we wanted to go to the most (its IRELAND for both of us!) fav animal (mine is either a great white shark or a flamingo, and his is a bear (koala to Kodiak) ...etc.
After we got married we decided to write up a list of things every couple should ask each other. Amazingly enough such tiny differences really can make it or break it for someone! I know that sounds ridiculous, but i've talked to a few people about it and they are they ones that told me that! In my head...if i really liked/loved the person, not one of these things would make me break up with them or assume that the relationship would be a dud or too hard to accommodate both choices.
We wrote our first list about a year ago...and lost it. So last night we started a new list...its not done, but here it is! Enjoy.

Moving their family of 6 from their long-time home of Utah...
to this house here in Mesa Arizona.
Where he played with friends and his siblings.
Where he got into trouble.
Or hung out having fun.
This is where he learned how to play his favorite instrument.
Because he lived here, we were able to go to the same Jr. High (where we met).
Because he lived here, his best friend ended up being one of my very good friends (who actually ended up getting us together)
This is where he lived when he left on his mission, and where he lived up to the day we got married.
This is where we woke up on our first Christmas together.
And now...its not the Hunt home anymore.
Its someone elses.
Thanks house, you served your family well!

"Choose to Become"
All the Speakers and Musicians?
Its a Friday night/Saturday conference for women! In 2 words?
UPLIFTING AND INSPIRING!
Both Musicians truly spoke to me...they were fantastic. On Saturday it was Hilliary Weeks. Shes hilarious and so talented. "A songwriter/singer/pianist. A mother. A mormon."
Not a great picture...but the only one i have.
Want to learn more? Go to the Website! www.tofw.com
You'll love it!
I have some catching up to do! and guess what?! PICTURES! (miracles do happen, see?)
I know i have posted in October, so its not like you havent heard from me. But lets just recap.
Ran in the Race for the Cure again :) 5 years that mom is cancer free! got some news at the end of oct saying that she tested positive for a cancer gene and now has to have a hysterectomy. We're sure that all will be well, and have great faith in her surgeons.
I have been working long days and to make sure i dont die, jace has been making me lunches. isnt he just such a cute mom?? ;)
Baby sat the 3 musketeers one night while my BIL Josh was in a play! We watched lots of movies, snuggled with aunt Andrea's stuffed animals, ate mac n cheese, read some books, and they all crashed on our bed. It was so cute.
Our pumpkins! This year Jace chose a smaller one because "it wouldnt take so long to clean out"...he realized his mistake later when he couldnt carve what he wanted to. He had to settle for the good old standby of "scary pumpkin face".
I on the other hand carved Frankie. :) Not my best...i like my mummy and tarantula better, but it was fun carving him!
My costume! Who am i? If you say Dorothy i will punch you in the head. I'm Wendy from Wendy's! I later added freckles and a wendy's bag.
(Jace was Jack from Jack in the Box--hilarious.)
I dont have a picture currently of Jace...but you could check out the busybeelauren blog... she had a good picture and Jace has some on his phone.

Crazy that its already been that long.
We decided to go up to the cabin for our anniversary, just like we went up there for our honeymoon.
it. was. awesome.
a running joke. the only picture we took on our honeymoon was of the covered bridge on the way into the ranch. This was on the way out.
