Love Story

So as I am seeing from Mrs. Davis I thought I would post our love story as well! So here goes nothing with a few pictures attatched! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! <3

 Hubbs and I met at Sears on my 18th Birthday! (Best bday present ever eh?) So as my bff Whitney and I were meeting some friends at Fashion Place mall so that we could all make it to dinner together we couldn't find parking anywhere!! We were meeting them right outside of the food court so it would be a really quick trip in and out!! There was a TON of parking in the Sears parking lot (almost like I was meant to go into Sears) so she said "Just park here and we will walk" Me being in heels and shorts ::blushing:: thought fine fine but lets make this quick Sears smells like OLD PEOPLE! Blech!! So we walk out of Sears and BAM its like I literally was struck by cupid. Considering that Ryan looks like a 30 year old man without a gotti I really though I had no chance that he was probably married with kids or something... lol Well we meet the friends and started walking out through Sears back to my car. Well who would have thought that this strickingly handsome man would be following us?? Well following is putting it lightly he was STALKING!! Major stage 5 clinger for sure!! He was with 2 of his other friends so as they kept following us I finally thought to myself before I trip and fall in these 6 inch heels and make a fool of myself I mains well say Hi.... thinking the humilation of that would outweigh the humility of falling on my face! So I took a GIANT leap and turned around and politly said "Hello boys" or as my hubbs would put it I said it very seductively.... Yeah I am sure I did Ryan. So we talked he challenged me to an arm wrestle to see who would go and hang out with who and I won!! (I know he let me win dont spoil it people) So I invited them to Joes Crab Shack my favorite restaurant at the time to my surprise they showed up!! Oh man my Prince Caharming really exists! After a year or 2 of a bad relationship I was NOT looking for anything serious which is why I think God put him right in front of me! So we talked through dinner and realized we had so much in common minus the fact that his family was UBER Mormon and my family is UBER Catholic. We hung out and talked for weeks until he finally asked me to be his "girlfriend" **batting my eyelashes** After graduation I moved in with him we had one minor breakup (on his end) and got back together Thanksgiving and have been going strong ever since!!

He proposed to me on Easter of 08' and we wed August of 08'!

So that is how we made Barras history! We have had our ups and downs as far as families, careers, religion, and opinions but at the end of the day he loves me for me and I couldn't ask for anything more in a man then that. He is my Prince Charming and I know I walked into that Sears with an open free heart and left with a wonderful man and best friend! OOoo how I have the feel goods! Share your love story with me I love to read them and get all mushy mushy!! I hope you enjoyed!! I know when we have Grandkids Ryan will say that I "hit" on him first but we all know the truth!!

Note: This is extremely hard for me to write and not cry!
 Last night around 8:00 p.m I noticed that our pug (Gus) would not leave our heeler (Chewy) alone!! He kept licking the right side of her face. I mean I know he is obsessed with her and all (she is neutered no worries) but he would just not stop licking her cheek! So I figured there had to be food on it or something wrong with it. Well sure enough my mama instinct was right, it was swollen and she was drooling EVERYWHERE!! I immediately went into panic mode and told DH what was going on. Now DH knowing what a freak I am when it comes to my dogs told me that maybe Gus had bitten it or maybe she knocked it and not to worry that we would see how it looked tomorrow. I chilled out a bit and took her to bed with us (Gus had to join in too). She laid on me and drooled ALL night long my poor baby must have been in so much pain! I was up ALL dang night worrying about her, thinking about how we would afford to help her if there was something seriously wrong with her. Yes I even thought about SELLING MY BODY!!
        My dogs are my life and as sick as some of you people might think it is they are my pride and joy. Every day when I get home from work they attack me with kisses and act like they haven't seen me in years it really does make my day! Dogs love their owners unconditionally and I love my pups so much more! So as the night went on and I sobbed like a BIG baby I decided that if it was still swollen even the slightest bit then I would take her to the vet first thing in the morning! Sure enough her poor side was still swollen.. I had to come into work for a few hours so I came in and called the doctor right at 8:00 a.m! I booked the soonest appt and fled work to see what was up with my girl. My sis came for moral support and Gus had to tag along as well. The vet looked down her throat and immediatly said "Her tongue is hurt really badly, I will be right back." About 10 minutes later or 10 years in mama time he came back in with some pain pills and an antibiotic. She had somehow burnt her tongue! He figured she may have gotten into an electrical cord and shocked herself or maybe put it on too cold of ice but about 3 layers of her poor tongue were ripped off. He showed me and I almost fainted and died!!! Sobbing the whole way home I called DH and explained everything!! I went to the store and bought her some hot doggies so she could get her pills in okay, a new toy, and some soft canned dog food. Chew is going to be just fine we just need to get her tongue back! For those of you who think I am a little obsessed with my dogs BUG off!! I love them and they always say "a dog is a man's best friend"! Yes indeed they are! I am still somewhat in tears I feel so bad that I could not have protected her from letting this happen. I asked DH today "Do you still want to have kids with me?" LOL I dont even want to think how I will be with them! Chewy is home resting with her Grandma and Aunty! I love her and her brother to peices!
So here I leave you with my 2 sweet babies!

They love each other! Wouldn't ya say??

Wishful Wednesday

"I WISH"... I had the funds and ground to open up something that I have always dreamed about
 A Dog Shelter
nothing like the ones that they have here in Utah! Nothing dirty, nothing too crowded, nothing with no love! My animal shelter would be on a huge farm with the shelter being like a red barn house! I would adopt dogs and take in all strays! There would be a on-site Vet so all the dogs would have their shots and be very healthy. They will have all the dog food, water, toys, and besties their little hearts could imagine! Along with all the love and attention in this world. A part of me has a feeling that this is sort of "my calling" if you will because of my strange ,overbearing, human like love for all dogs! So Happy Wednesday to you all and I am determined to make my wish come true one day! :]


Thanks to one of my good girlfriends  Mrs. Davis  at http://babydmakes3.blogspot.com/ for this!

"10 honest things about my life"

1). I HATE any kind of sandwhich condiment! No mayo, no mustard, no pickles NOTHING! Just meat, lettuce, and cheetos!
2). I went to private Catholic school up until junior high school and I loved it until I explored public school and swore I would never go back.. I went back 1 year and high tailed it right back to T-Ville.
3). I hate when people ask me how long I have been married followed by: "Well how old are you?" Like what does that have anything to do about my marriage?? Seriously people!!
4). I have a weird sick obsession for my dogs.. well any dogs at that matter I just love them. Ryan claims I dont know the difference between a dog and a human.
5). I am the most irresponsible 21 year old EVER like known to man kind if my head wasn't on my shoulders I would lose it.
6). I am only 5"0 ft tall and 98 pds. and would drop dead if I hit above 100!
7.) Ryan and I met at Sears. ::blushing::
8.) I have a.d.d like you wouldn't believe I am constantly tapping my foot on the ground as if going along to a beat because I CAN'T sit still.
9). I wear my heart on my sleeve when I first meet you I give you my complete trust but if you screw it up you will never 100% have it back.
10). My older sister and I are 18 months apart. She is my best friend and I sometimes wonder if God didn't make us twins because my parents wouldn't have been able to raise us so well! :]

Well thats it! Call me what you will boring, blunt, crazy I dont care. I am me and I love where my life is taking me!


I am so excited and thrilled to start school for fall semester!! I am going to be going to SLCC and doing their 3 semester medical assisting program!

I have waited 2 years to get back into school and we think that this fall will be the perfect time! We have our house, our yard will be finished, and we will have the debt that needs to be paid off paid!! I will be quitting my full time job and going to school 3 or 4 times a week 5 classes a day!! I am going to try and find a part time job somewhere to keep our spending habits from not getting the best of us! I just think it would be a great career and something I could always fall back on. My objective is to hopefully get on at the U in their delivery and labor unit or in a pediactrics office! (Yes people I do like kids, as long as they aren't my own for the time being!) WHEN we do have kids I will be able to work part time and the goal is to continue to go to get my nursing degree!! I have the best husband in this world he is so willing to take on the financial responsibilities so I can acheive my goals and dreams!! I have the best family and friends in this world and I am so thankful for their support and encouragment! We are going to have to put a few things on the back burner so we dont have to take out a student loan to pay but it will be so worth it in the end because I will be doing something I love to do!! Most young people need loans, or their parents help but I am proud of the progressive Ryan and I have made to be able to do it on our own, we do sacrifice for the things we want and love and our willing to do it to achieve the goals that we have!!! I have my CNA so the classes shouldn't be too rough on me and my sister is a math GENIUS so wish me luck!!

Boise Game

If your going to cry you might want to stop reading... HERE!!!

Boise State beat TCU!! After all of the doubts that people had against Boise they seemed to pull it out! I hate how people can't admit to teams having true talent! Wipe your tears and be happy for a good young team! My husband is a die hard fan and will be till the day he dies it is something we enjoy doing together and we love going to their games even if its 0 degrees outside! So to all you MWC lovers once Boise gets into it lets see what you have to say then. BUT until TCU, Utah, or BYU beats Boise again keep your mouths SHUT!! :] Thanks and have a good day!


Tonight is the Boise vs. TCU game! Lets go Broncos!!
I dont know if I am more excited for the actual game or just for it to be over so my husband and his friends can stop talking about it!!

Rys 22nd Birthday

So as some of you know my dear sweet husband turned 22 yesterday! On Saturday we went out to the Sky Box and had the BEST seats in the house! They had a HUGE projector right in front of our long table with the Jazz game and 2 BIG screens on each side of that with a football game and Utes basketball. We had great food great drinks and great company!! I hope my husband enjoyed his night out with our freinds and close family! I think he was in heaven which couldn't make more happy! :] Here is a picture of the group minus a few people!

(sorry Bri for having your head cut off with the beer)
Thanks everyone who came and helped celebrate Ryans birthday! It was such a good time and couldn't be more thankful for the people who put out the effort to be in our lives!! As for his actual birthday on Sunday I made him steak sandwiches which are his favorite and tradition with his family and we ate our Schmidts cake! We only had family at this one since we wanted it a little more intimate! I hope he had a wonderful birthday and I look forward to being just as excited at his 72nd as I am his 22nd! So shout out to my best friend and confidant!
