Here We Come

I have been waiting for this day for a long long time. We got our letter today that my sealing cancellation went through and that Brent and I will be able to be sealed on June 15th. I cannot imagine a better way to celebrate our first anniversary. Thank you so much to all of you who have been so supportive of us through everything. You will never truly know how much it has meant. Haha now I just have to deal with all of my kids asking me why I have been crying :)

Kids Remember Everything

So last week, when we were talking about birthdays in class, I told my kids that March 28th was going to be Lole's 4th birthday! They insisted we needed to make her birthday cards (we love to do to this haha), and then there wasn't much said about it again. I had an appt. on Monday, so I left at lunch and had a sub for the afternoon. On Tuesday morning, my kids come in and ask me about Lole's birthday:

"Mrs. Kellers, what did you do yesterday for Lole's birthday?"
"Oh no! I am the worst mom ever! I forgot it was her birthday yesterday!"
"You really are the worst mom Mrs. Keller! How could you forget!?!?"
"I had a lot going on and so I forgot!"

A couple hours later we proceeded to color birthday pictures for Lole. As we went throughout the rest of the day, and all day today I think I heard the following statement about 200 times: "Mrs. Keller, how could you forget your dog's birthday?!"

Needless to say, I will no longer tell my kids anymore dates I will probably forget. :)


As of last week, goodbye Civic payments!!

As of yesterday, goodbye student loan payments!!

Feels. So. Good. :)

Happy Late Birthday Brent!

This is a little late, but I wanted to post a couple pictures from Brent's birthday!! Mom, you are supposed to be super impressed with my poster ;)

We had lots of fun eating at Tepanyaki with his parents and then we forced him into going to lots of stores to try on new clothes for work (this wasn't his idea of fun on his birthday, but let's be honest, he didn't really have a choice haha). We got his new business wardrobe all stocked up, and he has been looking quite fabulous :)

I can't wait for the next 25!

Out with the old:

In with the new:

Today brings a new life for us. This sounds crazy, I know, but a lot is changing in the Keller household!

We sold Brent's Beamer on Friday in less than 2 hours and found ourselves at the Fashion Place Mall without a car!! Haha good thing Brent knew exactly what car he wanted!! We have a loaner for right now until his black one comes in on the truck this week! It is kinda sad... that is the car he has had since he got home from his mission, and the car he has had for our whole relationship! But we are SO excited for the new one! They have us a loaner from the dealership and we are loving it!!

Brent started his new job today!! WOO HOO! I meant to take a picture of him dressed in his suit this morning (like the first day of school) but I forgot!! I am so proud of him and so excited for him to start working! I am sure going to miss him being bored at home though ;)

We get our new washer and dryer delivered today!! I am SO SO SO SO excited! Ours had been struggling (not surprising since Brent got them for free) and we hadn't been able to use them since probably November! Bless Ann's heart for letting us take over their laundry room, but we are so excited to not have to truck all of our dirty clothes around! Yay!!

Brent turns 25 this week! CRAZY! That makes us feel so old! It is exciting though that this happens on a week/month of so many other new things in life! Lots to post about in the recent future! This week makes growing up seem so fun!! :)

I. Love. Dessert.

Let's be honest, anyone who knows me knows of my obsession with baking and desserts... this was the funnest gift that my mom and dad gave me for my birthday! Aren't these little desserts so stinking cute!! I had a blast! I think the jello was my favorite though, it looked so great!!

Now this is my other obsession lately... chocolate dipped pretzels... We made them a few weeks in a row at Brent's parents' house, and each time they don't last more than an afternoon because they are so good! This chocolate Ann gets (Guittard Old Dutch) makes the most amazing chocolate pretzels and strawberries!! I have been practically begging Brent to go buy me a 10 lb bar of this chocolate so I can make them at home and not use all of Ann's!! He went and got it today and I am SO excited!!

So I turned 24 last month!! It was a great birthday! I love how when you are young, birthdays on Sundays seem to suck, but it is great as a grown up because you get to relax all day!!

Haha I love how this is the first picture! These first few pics I look awful! But my mom and dad's present came and I had to take pictures when I opened it, so I apologize (I know you are only supposed to put good pictures of yourself on your blog, so I am breaking some rules I am sure)!
They got me these miniature dessert dishes with a Libby's cookbook full of fun mini desserts!! They are so cute!! I will post soon of the cute desserts I made with them! :)

I may have a slight obsession with cardigans... :) Thanks all of you who fed into my addiction!! I love it!!

We had dinner at Brent's parents house, it was very yummy!! It was Big Brent, Ann, Carly and Dave, Addie, Brent and I, Katchie, and Clayton and Amy! It was fun to have all of my local family together!! Wish all of my fam coulda been there though!!

A pic with Clayton and Amy! Sorry Katch... I looked sick in the picture of the two of us... but I love you!

Laser Hair Removal!! WOO HOO!! I have the best hubby ever!! I can't wait!

Isn't that cupcake wrapping paper the cutest?!

Love the earrings Momma and Biggie!

One of the best parts of teaching 1st grade is that they get even more excited about your birthday than you do!! So I made some homemade funfetti cupcakes to take to school :) They were wonderful!! The orange and green were to represent my old favorite colors and the purple and pink are for my new ones ;)

Thanks so much for all of the emails, texts, phone calls, gifts, and birthday wishes everyone!! My birthday was so great! 24 is going to be a great year! Love you all!!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!
