I am so excited that tomorrow is the first day of March. March has ALWAYS been my favorite month. For Matt and I, so much happens in this month. Both of our birthday's are in March and over spring break, and both Matt's sister and dad's birthdays are in March too. In March, the weather starts to warm up and it is so beautiful outside. This year, spring break is going to be a very busy one for me. Matt and I are having our engagement pictures and I am having my Bridal Shower. I have to do lots of wedding stuff and I cant wait! I also have a few of my friends showers to attend and of course we get to celebrate our birthdays! Matt and I will have been engaged for ONE year on March 21st. I can't believe how fast time flies. It just seems like yesterday! We only have 4 more months till we are husband and wife! We are both more than ready. Well, I hope you enjoy the Month of March as much as I do. The weather is warming up and next week here in Lubbock it is supposed to get up to 86! :)

So, I am well aware of the fact that I worry way too much. If you ask anyone close to me, they will tell you I am a worrier. Mostly, I worry about things that I cannot control and then let it take over my entire day. I know right now, I have a lot to worry about. Will Matt get a job? Will I get a job? Will we have a place to live? Will we have enough money? The list could go on and on. Well, as I was sitting in church this Sunday, God really spoke to me about my "worries". I started to think to myself, "When has God ever left me stranded when I was in need of something?" The answer: NEVER! I thought about my situation last year when I really needed a job. He provided. I have always heard the phrase, "Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere." It is so true. God was telling me to stop worrying, because He will provide. I need to give it up to God and let him take care of the rest. In the end, I think I will be much happier!

"Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done."
Philipians 4:6

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Yesterday we had our class party at school and I got so much chocolate from my kids! It made me feel so loved. I came home with all of it and gave some to Matt. He said to me, "Well, it looks like I'll never have to get you chocolate for Valentine's Day again!" haha it's so true! I put some in the freezer because I had so much of it.

Tonight Matt and I are making dinner together and watching a movie. I like staying in on Valentine's Day so much more than going out to eat. Most places book up like a week in advance or are way too expensive! We are making Seafood Stuffed Avocados with bread and wine. I can tell when we get married we are going to love cooking together. I may not be that good at it now, but I really hope I can learn more because I do enjoy it. Matt says all the time that when we get married he thinks I will not cook, so I HAVE to prove him wrong! :)

Have a great Valentine's Day everyone!!

Skiing in Keystone

We (My family and Matt's sister Ashlye) went skiing and tubing in Keystone, Colorado this weekend and it was soo much fun! I didn't want to leave on Sunday and assured my parents that Matt and I would definitely be back next year! We left Thursday after I got out of school and got there around midnight. Then, we left Friday morning for Keystone. We hung out Friday and had hot chocolate and Audra and Ashlye went ice skating. Saturday we woke up early and went tubing! It was an absolute blast! It is kind of like water slides, but with snow! I put some pictures below so you can see what it looks like. You could go down with up to 4 people and you went faster the more people you had going down. They would spin you if you wanted and you go SO fast! They said they clock some people going 50 mph at night! It was so much fun and I'm really looking forward to showing it to Matt next year! Then, after tubing, we went skiing! Me, Audra and Ashlye went and were determined on the greens since we were all a little rusty! Well, the first time we took a wrong turn and end up going down a BLUE! It was pretty steep and I had fun but, it was definitely too tough for us! The second time we went down the right one and it was called School Marm. The whole time snowboarders were coming down behind us so fast! Snowboarding is really amazing to me because they make it look so easy when I know it is hard. Then, after skiing we returned everything and went back to the condo. The condo we stayed in was so nice. It was 3 stories and had a big wooden dining room table with a flat screen TV and fireplace and an amazing view of the mountains! I have to say I really missed Matt, it was so "romantic" walking around at night. Next year should be just as awesome and I love it that my family is going to make it an annual thing. Maybe I can even get a few of our friends to come next year :) (hint hint Jay and Ash!) Getting up for work this morning was so hard because I wanted to be back in the mountains!! Well, I will leave you all with some pictures of the trip! Stopping to take a scenic picture on the way to Keystone! Me and my sister skiing :)

On the Gondola

I had so much fun and now I am missing my family so much, but I am very fortunate to get to see them a lot this year because of all the wedding stuff going on!
