My husband: The Rapper

Sean has been in a music group for about 3 years. It took them some time to get their first CD finished....but they did it!! Patience + Time = great music! Sean's group "Color Free", is a hip hop group that makes not just great beats, but their music has good, clean lyrics. They want all genres of people to feel positivity when they hear their music. They have already had a few shows and a guy asked to do a documentary on them for youtube. Here is their video from youtube. The song playing in the back ground is one of their songs as well. Look for Color Free in the future and don't forget to buy their CD when it comes out!! =)

My husband is so talented and I am so proud of him!

June 22nd is quite a day!

Today is my brother in law Macks 16th birthday, my best friend Kristals daughters (Kyriel) birthday and my friend Dianas daughters (Macazlyn)birthday AND it is also my "due date". If i had not miscarried back in December, today would be my due date. When I told someone at work today, she was like, "Wow, you really remembered that?" Well, it's kinda hard for me not too since there are sooo many birthdays on this day! I really thought that this day would be kind of hard for me. And while it does bring me some sadness, I have too much faith in our Heavenly Father. He knew what he was doing when He chose for me to miscarry. We don't know the exact reason why women miscarry for no apparent reason. People asked me right after I miscarried if the doctors had a reason why. And someone even told me that maybe next time I'd be more careful. Well guess what, I miscarried for NO REASON! The only reason I know of, is that our Father in Heaven knows what He is doing. I don't believe the whole, "it just wasn't the right time." I believe that Heavenly Father has a greater purpose behind all this. He knows the pain I felt in those first months after placing my birth son. I do not believe that He would just take my child from me because, "it wasn't the right time."

I have learned 3 very important lessons from losing this baby 6 months ago. The #1 lesson I learned was complete and absolute faith. Like I said, I don't know why, but I have faith in God's reasoning. #2 That I MUST turn to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ during times of trial. They continue to carry me through the hard times in my life. And even in those hard times, I have still see the Lord blessing me. #3 That Sean REALLY is ready to be a dad! He was always so scared to be a father. I was actually a little nervous when I first told him that I was pregnant, but he was more excited then me! He said that he really learned from our pregnancy experience that he is excited to be a daddy.

Usually when bad things happened in our lives, we want a reason. We don't necessarily need to know "why me" but more in the lines of, "what is the purpose of this hardship?" I have learned to not ask that of our Heavenly Father. He knows what he is doing, and hard as it may be at times, I will continue to have faith in His reasoning!

Hope Ya Know, We Had A Hard Time

I have such a good husband. He saw that I was not having a good day, and being the great priesthood holder that he is, he offered to give me a blessing. After that, he had me watch this video. Of course I cried and now I have a headache, but it was worth it to get this message. So, please excuse my bad attitude in the previous post.

Need to VENT!!

Ok, so today has just been "one of those days". We've all had them. The ones where you are just annoyed at possibly everything in the universe. Well, i'm having one of those today. I just needed to vent at the things I'm annoyed at:

1) This weather! It's suppose to be summer. I wore a sweater today(so not right). I went cherry picking with my class in Leona Valley, and I promise you it was 40 degrees with the wind chill. HORRIBLE!

2) That Sean didn't get hired for summer school and NO ONE in this Valley seems to want to hire an intelligent man such as him. But they will hire child molesters. Remember the guy from Winco that got 30 years in prison for molesting two little girls?! yea...and Winco wouldn't even hire me 3 years ago...but they'll hire THAT guy. Go figure.

3) That I should have my masters degree by now. But NOOOOOO....i'm still working on the Bachelors. And the best part is...i may finish school and not even get a job because of this GREAT economy!

4) That all of our good friends live far away. So I have no one to vent to in person. I have to do it on blogger. Very annoying.

5) That I do not have ANY clue when Sean and I are going to have children. It's very frustrating and I'm REALLY trying to be faithful, but it really gets me down sometimes not knowing when.

**just a side not** I really think this weather is what is making me so annoyed at everything. Maybe when the heat decides to show up, my attitude will go up as well.

Good weekend and lots of pictures

I started work again today. I had a week off before summer school started, and now i'm back at Highland. Not so thrilled...but we had a really good weekend! Thursday we went to Barneys Beanery in Burbank to watch the Laker game. If you cannot be at the actual game Barneys is the next best place to be! It really is like being at a game. We had to get there 3 hours early just to get good seats! But it was so worth it to see LA kick Orlandos behind by 25 points!!
Friday, Seans brother Ohre graduated with his AA from College of the Canyons. We are so proud of him. He is going to UTI this fall.
Saturday, I got to take Nina to my co-worker/friends daughters 3rd birthday party. Zoe (the bday girl) grabbed Ninas arm as soon as we came in and started dragging Nina around. It was pretty cute.
Sunday, Sophia got blessed in church! We went up to Tehachapi for her blessing.

Good weekend!

Representin LA ALL DAY!!

Go Lakers!

It's FINALLY finished!!

In March of 2008, I was asked by my social worker at LDS Family Services if I would like to be apart of the new website for LDS Family Services. Of course I said yes! What a wonderful opportunity for me to be an advocate for adoption and birth mothers! So, last March, I was flown up to Salt Lake for one crazy and fun day of interviewing, picture taking and meeting other birth moms. I was dead tired the whole day because I had left for the airport at 3 in the morning and I couldn't sleep the night before. So, besides from being extremely tired, it was such a great experience.

The new website was suppose to be up in September, but as we know, nothing ever goes as planned. So, as of today, one year and 3 months after filming, it's up!! Just go to and click on the "Real Life Stories" section. I feel so blessed to be apart of something so great.

Go check me out!!
