Perfect Day

I WISH the house behind us in the picture was our house!
Don't you just want to live right one the beach?? I do! And good thing Ivan does too :) Who cares about tsunami scares. In California there are none, so whatevs!!

Last night while Ivan and I were at the movie theaters I reflected back on my day and honestly thought it was the perfect day!! We went on a fabulous date after a fabulous day of school. First we went to the temple in Provo-awesome! we read our scriptures while were waiting and a beautiful time. Then we went out to dinner to Macaroni Grill with our gift card. It was the perfect amount of food and drink for both of us! and the perfect first-we're savvy like that ;) We stayed at the restaurant for a while just talking, about how great our relationship is. We both laughed at all the dumb stuff we used to get mad at when we were first married. We are so over that and we seem to be getting along great now. We also stress out a lot less over finances. To me, it seems like a recent change, just because the Spirit and Service has been so much more involved in my life, so I am happier and more patient. We laugh A LOT and have a good time with each other which makes life so much more pleasant when you're not having battles for everything..hehe. What a great talk we had!
Then we went to Alice and Wonderland-which was weird but I love going out to the movies!! So perfect day = the love of my life, peacefulness, good fun and fun activities :) I LOVE LIFE and I love my friends and Ivan xoxo

Our Family is a Little Bit Smaller..

Yesterday seems like the longest day of my life! We got off the your bus (tour was fabulous by the way, entries soon to come) around 9:30 am Sunday. I thought I would spend the rest of the day relaxing and catching up on sleep, but no. We immeadiately went to Payson to pick up Koda. He was different because he probably didn't the attention and discipline he is so used to. So we was pretty uncontrollable and my hopeful feelings of keeping him around faded. We had been praying to find Koda a new home because of our touring schedule and financial position. We always tossed the idea around, but have thought about it seriously ever since he devoured my entire birthday cake on January 18th. haha.

When we got home, I checked my email and a family had responded to my ad on KSL. They seemed awesome and said they were moving into a new house and wanted a dog for the new house in two weeks, but wanted to meet him today. Perfect! We met at the park and her three boys were perfect with Koda. The oldest boy hugged him and said "You're going to be my doggy!"
The family seemed perfect for Koda and their new house and big backyard. As a shocker to both of us, They wanted to take him home right away. We got a special moment with him to say goodbye and we even saved his dog tag. Then, we were both a wreck when we came back in the house. I felt really peaceful and we had been praying to do what's right for him! My comfort came from Koda's happy face and eagerness to jump into a car full of three new friends and brothers! I thought a lot about it today at work, how happy he must be, but how sad I am. This is really dumb but I think I will see him in heaven some day and I really hope he is thankful for what we did for him. He will always be ours, our first dog, and we love him so much!
