Going to the temple....

So, Sean and I got sealed on November 22nd, 2008 at 11:30 in the morning! It was a beautiful ceremony! The spirit was so strong. And I am so happy that our close friends and family could have been there. The funny thing was, a lot of people told me they were going to be at the sealing, and then they didn't end up coming. Sean and I both have had quit a few close loved ones pass on. I have a feeling all the empty chairs were filled by the spirits of our loved ones. After the sealing, we had a lovely but small open house and quite a few people showed up. We felted truly loved! We had pictures taken at the temple and as soon as we get them, I will post some!

Anniversary and forever!

Sean and I had our 1st wedding anniversary on November 2nd. And since we are getting sealed this Saturday, November 22nd, I figured I better give an update on what happened on our anniversary. We left Friday, Halloween, to go stay with our friends Kenny and Laura, who live in Baldwin Park. We hung out and went out to eat and watched movies. It's always fun going and seeing them. We stayed there will Sunday, Nov. 2nd, and went to Newport Beach and checked into the Hyatt Regency. Ok...i will confess. We were very bad and went on Sunday. BUT!! Our anniversary isn't on a weekend again until our 5th anniversary, so we figure the Lord will forgive us! We took Monday off from work and went out to eat and just drove on the beautiful Pasific Coast Highway. It was just so lovely to get some time with my wonderful husband. When Sean and I started to get really get serious, I felt really inspired to write him a poem. I wanted to share that poem with you since we just celebrated out one year.

"When I thought all was lost.
I was so blind , I could not see
that my heart was falling to pieces.
My heart had lost it's key.
I would cry on the inside.
And smile on the out.
But that crying on the inside,
began to scream and started to shout.
I had almost given up,
then "he" came in my life.
He bagan to heal my bleeding heart.
He began to take away my strife.
He gently took the blindfold off,
that had been covering my eyes for so long.
He knew all the mistakes I'd made,
But never once did he tell me I was wrong.
Next he placed a band aide
over my bleeing heart.
And though the bleeing may never stop.
He has helped the healing start.
Heavenly Father knew I was down,
And my Angel couldn't be by my side.
The Angel I carried for nine months
was on a completely different ride.
And so He sent me you.
To take the other palce.
He knew who much I needed you
in lifes crazy race.
So thank you for being "new" Angel.
My new Angel from above.
Thank you for helping me see
that I am worth the greatest love."

As most people know, I am a birthmom to a BEAUTIFUL little boy. I met Sean at the end of my pregnancy. We started dating 2 months after I had him. He would hold me when I would cry and let me talk about him as much as possible. He even propsed to me on my birth sons first birthday. My birthson was my first Angel and now Sean is my new Angel. He helped me get through the most difficult time to my life. And he did it with kindness and love. I am so happy to be married to such an amazing man and I can't wait to have him forever on Saturday!

***sorry for all the mushiness about Sean. It's just that it's his bday and our anniversary within 2 weeks and he is just so darn wonderful so i can't help but brag!!

So, It's Sean birthday and I was on my friend Jens blog and her husbands birthday was yesterday. I thought this was so cute so I had to steal it. Here is my tribute to Sean on his birthday!

Where did you meet?
On the Internet actually! I always said that I would never meet anyone on the Internet, but apparently that's not what the Lord had in store for me. I just got this strong prompting one day to go and look for LDS guys within 50 miles of me....and there was Sean! And just by pure fate, his default picture was him in a tux at his best friends wedding! It was destiny from the beginning!

How long did you date before you got married?
9 months and engaged for 3 months.

How long have you been married?
One year!! We just had our anniversary on November 2nd! I can't believe it!

What is your favorite feature of his?
His smile and his lips!

What is your favorite quality of his?
His kindness. He is so kind to everyone and he has really taught me to have a kinder heart. He gives everyone the benefit of the doubt and that is such a beautiful quality!

Does he have a nickname for you?
Babe, baby, Angel face, hottness, mama......but mostly babe! =)

What is his favorite color?
He's color free!!! (you'll know what that means soon enough!) But on the real, he likes all colors.

What is his favorite food?
Mac and cheese. Bj's pizza, fish tacos, chicken burrito at Chipotle...and the list could go on forever!

What is his favorite sport?
Basketball and football! Lakers, 49ners and Dodgers!! Hooray for Laker season!!!!

When and where was your first kiss?
Our first kiss was on November 8th 2006. It was our 2nd "official" date. We had been talking since July, so we had known each other for awhile. We played this guessing game in the park. Sean made cards with little tasks on them if one of us won. I won of course!! =) The card I picked said "You get a kiss on the cheek, hand or lips." Hmmm...can you tell what Sean wanted?? So, i was a little nervous and just kind of chuckled and didn't say anything. Sean took that as I didn't like him. We then went out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant. He had to try once more to see if I liked him or not. So, after dinner, we walked to the car. He opened the door for me and told me he wanted to put my seat belt on me. I was thinking, "oh how cute." I look at his hand as he clicks the belt, then I turn my head back forward and there were his lips!!! He stole a kiss!!! But it was a kiss that I was willing to give. I couldn't stop smiling after that. He's never had a doubt since if I liked him or not.

What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?
EVERYTHING! Sean is my best friend and we love doing everything as a couple.

Do you have any children?
One in the oven!

Does he have a hidden talent?
He can rap really well.

How old is he?

Who said "I love you" first?
He did!

What do you admire most about him?
The way he loves me so much. We have been married for over 365 days and almost every single one of those days, he looks at me and tells me how absolutely beautiful I am and how lucky he is. I feel so blessed to have a man like him as my husband. Heavenly Father knew exactly what kind of man I needed, and sent Sean to me. Happy Birthday Sean!! I love you!!

Its so sad.

I work at Highland Highschool in Palmdale Ca. As we all know, today is election day. In California, the biggest issue facing us is Prop 8. I am of course voting Yes to protect trational marriage. But as I am walking around campus today, so many kids are yelling, "vote no on prop 8!" It really saddens me how the generation in high school right now is turning out. They have no idea on the impact this will have if prop 8 doesn't pass. I tried to explain to 2 girls today that were saying same sex marriage would not be taught in schools, that it would. I probably shouldn't have interrupted their conversation, but I had to!! And I have never seen so much hate! There were about 15 or so "Yes on 8" signs in our neighborhood. EVERY single sign was stolen this morning!! Homosexuals say they teach love and happiness. In fact the word "gay" means happy! I have never in my life seen so much hate against people who are against same sex marriage. It's ok for them to steal our signs, curse at us, throw eggs at people, vandalize property and act very immature, but if we just say that we against gay marriage, we are evil biagits and haters! It is just so sad. I have been praying very hard for Heavenly Father to calm my heart because I get so worked up over it sometimes. I just pray that California will not fall into satans trap of distroying marriage.

A lot of people against Prop 8 are trying to compare it to the civil rights movement. Here is a very powerful video on how some people feel about that.
