Yes, I am still alive

So I have been rather busy lately and haven't posted a blog for months. I feel like I have been so out of touch with the world. And although Adam has posted pictures (which I'm very grateful for) let's be honest, he is one with few words so to find out what's going on you have to go to the source, me the very very, sometimes too much, talkative one. We're a perfect match I would say!
So life has been wonderful and we're staying busy with this little rascal that we love so much. He gets cuter everyday if that's even possible. Just recently I've realized though how easy it would be to let Collin be the center of our lives and neglect our marriage as a result. You love these little babies so much and you put so much effort into taking care of them and they're so helpless and they need you for everything that you neglect everything else. I'm afraid I've been doing that lately and we have only gone on one date since Collin has been born. That is so unacceptable. We love being parents and having a family, but it's sure life changing. So we have lots of adjusting to do and we have to learn how to balance all of our priorities, our marriage being crucial. Sorry if that sounds sad, we're doing great, but I just realized that it takes a lot of work.
Anyway I have to just say how wonderful, sorry to all of you that had to start school, it is to walk by campus and feel no pressure or stress since i'm finished!!! Ha ha I love being home. I miss learning, but I don't miss the stress, pressure, and constant feeling of impending deadlines. I have to admit taking care of Collin is totally a full time job and I thought I would have plenty of free time to focus on me. That isn't the case this little guy is a handful, but I love it and I definitely choose it over school or work. But I feel like a free woman, BYU was wonderful and I am so proud of my education, but I'm taking a break! Woohoo!!
So we hit our three year anniversary August 11th, we both graduated, and we went to Arizona. August was a busy month, but super fun!! I also turned 23 last week and feel like I'm getting old.
Well I'm back and hopefully I'll stay on top of things better!

Yeah! You're alive. I'm still dying at the fact that I haven't met Collin yet. Jared told me he saw you walking Collin the other day when he was working with the crew. I'm jealous! Let's please try to meet up sometime this week. I'm not sure if the boys have a soccer game or not. Either way, I'll be in touch if for nothing more than to stop by and say hello. School sort of took me by a whirlwind, but hopefully soon I can balance things better myself too.

congrats on your 3 year!! Ours is coming up in December :) Crazy how time flies! Collin is so adorable, and I am also looking forward to the time I will have to spend with him, but know that I will need to remember other parts of my life too! But you do the best that you can :) You are such a wonderful mother! And our boys should have a playdate whenever mine decides to enter this world

Hi. I wrote a very important message to you via the facebook. You should read it soon. I just hope you get it in time. I'm realizing it's kind of a problem that I don't have your phone number.
