It's been far too long...

WOW it has been a very long time since I have updated our blog. We have just been super busy and boy, does time fly by! I don't even know where to start...

Well, the big news is...we are preggers! I am exactly half way (20 weeks) this week. Everything is going really well so far! The only complaint I have is that this baby is an ENERGY SUCKER!! I am seriously tired all the time. My bedtime is 7:30pm every night, no joke. You are probably wondering the gender, well we "think" it is a boy. The reason I say "think" is because we were told at our appointment it was a girl. Then at our last appointment it was switched to a boy. The doctor said he is 100% sure it is a boy this time. So he must of just been a late bloomer haha. Tage is definitley getting made fun of on this one. Needless to say, we are excited either way! I had to exchange all the girl clothes I bought for boy ones, which was kinda depressing. But luckily I found some cute ones. We are due March 30th. I can't believe how fast time is going by! That date will be here before we know it!

This is from our 1st ultrasound, I will post more current ones soon.

Perfect outfit for our lil' man

Some other exciting news is we are building a house! It should be done the end of Decemeber. We can not wait!! We will be living in West Point, which is right next to Syracuse. It will be a very nice Christmas present for us :)

I finished up my soccer season about a month ago. It was so fun and exciting! The girls ended up making HISTORY! We took 2nd in Region, and made it to the 2nd round in state. We finished in the top 8 in state. It was such a fun year!

 I almost forgot some other BIG news...Tage passed is Series 7 test about a month ago!!! I am so proud of him! He has worked his butt off studying for that test, and it all paid off! He has been loving work too!

I am sure I am forgetting a lot of other stuff since it has been so long, but I will try not to wait so long to update next time. I can not wait for Holidays coming up! Well, til next time....

June Fun!

So far our Summer has been really fun! At the beginning of June I started conditioning with my High school girls for soccer. It has been going really well. I have been doing it with them, so it has been nice cause it forces me to get into shape ha. Tage finally got his start date at Fidelity, July 23rd. We are really excited! At the beginning of June, I also played in a 6v6 tournament up in Logan with a bunch of my friends. It was so much fun to play again with all of them! We ended up winning the whole thing too. It was fun!

My parents came to visit and we had so much fun! While they were here my mom painted Heidi's new baby room. It is AMAZING! She painted Ollie's jungle theme when he was born. I wish soo bad I had just an ounce of her talent. It makes me want to get pregnant so that she can work on my baby room ;) haha jk. I am really working on the parentals to move down here. I think they are getting more serious, or they just tell me that so I will shut up about it. Either way, I won't stop until they get here! ha. 

I play in a soccer league and we needed a boy sub, so since Tage was there watching me, they asked if he could play. I was like, "uhh..." But he played, and it was so funny and fun! He rolled his basketball shorts up so they looked like soccer shorts and played in his tennies. And he was actually GOOD! He had a lot of fun too. And my teammates were so impressed with him they asked if he wanted to keep subbing for us. Tage was excited and decided he needed some soccer shoes, so since he is big foot, we were able to get some nice Nike Vapors for only $20 at Ross! It was awesome. It has been a blast playing with him :)

Tage and I celebrated our 1st anniversary! I can't believe it has been a year! I guess time flies when your having fun! We have had so much fun together! It's a good thing when you marry your best friend :)

Happy 1st Anni to us :)

Tage's cleats we got for $20! Glad he has such big feet to get them cheap ;)

Cali Trip :)

We had SO much fun visiting Garrett and his family in Cali over memorial weekend! It was so fun all being together! They took us to San Fransisco for a day and we had a blast! Tage had never been there before, so it was really fun for him to see. Christina taught me a few crafty tricks and we made the cutest chalk board! I love it. I tried to learn a lot of her tricks over the weekend, we'll see if I can remember them ;)  It was such a fun vaca and we miss them already!
Fun Times is San Fran!

My Chalk board and Cinnamon Rolls me and Chrissy made :) Pretty proud of myself!

"Dog Pile" Every morning :) Miss them!

Busy as a Bee...

We have had so much fun these past few weeks! A couple weeks ago, Garrett came to town for work. So we all got together and had a blast as usual! Nothing is more fun than when our family gets together!

Tage and Garrett wrestling :)

The boys getting ready for the brawl ha

Since I have had a bit of time on my hands, I decided to go watch Ollie for a few days. It was sooo fun! He is serioulsy to die for. I hate to admit it, but I bawled my eyes out when I had to leave him, pathetic I know. We had so much fun together!! Here is a few pics from the few days of being with him:

Funny faces in the morning!

We went to the park and he LOVED the slide!

Tage and I are on a co-ed softball team with some of our friends. It is sooo much fun! We have only had one game, but it was a blast! We were down 9-1 at one point, but we rallied back and WON! We just needed a little warming up is all :)

We had such a fun weekend this past week! We went hiking, played games, made a fire, and hung out with friends. It was a great time!

The Boys doin' their thing!

I struggled with shooting the gun if ya can't tell haha, I've realized, I HATE guns!

We are going to visit Garrett and his family in Sacramento for memorial weekend! Garrett called Tage and talked him into going, he wouldn't take NO for answer, literally! We are soo excited! Our first road trip together...can't wait to see everyone! I'll post about the trip when we get back :)

Sooo a lot has happened these past few weeks. Let's just say we have been SO blessed in so many ways!! I finished up my student teaching at Legacy Jr. High. I was actually really sad to leave. I had a blast there and such a great experience! I am helping out with the track team, so I still get to see some of the kids :) it's been so fun! Well the exciting news is...drum roll please....I GOT A JOB!! I will be teaching PE and Health at Clearfield High School this next school year! I can't wait! On top of that, I am also the new Head Soccer Coach there as well. I just can't believe it. I have been so blessed and I am so grateful for these opportunities I have been given, now lets just hope I don't screw them up ;) ha ha jk.

So more good news is...Tage got a new job as well! He will be working at Fidelity! He is soo excited! He loved his old job, but this new job just has so many more opportunities for him. I am so proud and excited for him! 

And then some more exciting news (maybe shocking to some) WE GRADUATED!!! This past weekend we both graduated from Utah State University! It was such a GREAT DAY! I just can't believe I am officially done and moving on to the real world...and fast! I am so excited, but I do have to admit, I was really sad to leave Logan for good. I have had SO many amazing memories there. One of the best decisions of my life was to go to USU! Aggie for life baby!!

My soccer gals and my soon-to-be teachers!

Spring Fever!

I was able to go home to Washington for a week during my Spring Break. Tage wasn't able to get work off so he wasn't able to go :( I did miss him lots! But I did have a blast!! It was so much fun to be with my parents and see my old friends. My mom helped teach me how to make some bows. I definitely got skipped on the creative and crafty gene! I managed to burn myself twice with the hot glue gun, and I wasn't even using it! But my mom is amazing!! You wouldn't believe the stuff she can do! She is working on making a tutorial on how to make bows. She is making like 80 tutorials and they are SO GOOD! I'll give out more info when they are all done. Overall, it was a GREAT vaca! Hopefully Tage will be able to go out there sometime soon.

At the Seattle Science Center

Jazz Game with Heidi and Ollie before I left


The tulip fields weren't up yet so we had to do with the daffodils

He loves his Lemons!

Some of the Bows my mom taught me to make, you would die if you saw the ones she did!

Gotta love them! Just dancing to Footloose!

I was able to get back in time for Easter. We had a great Easter! We went to Millers for dinner and had an Easter Egg hunt where us Cliffords made out like bandits! It was such a fun time! We then went over to Tage's aunt and uncles house for dessert and to hang out. It was really fun all being together!

Easter Egg hunt

I hope everyone had a great Easter and the Bunny treated you all well :)
