Capt America 2

Bryce, the best date ever took me out on the town, we went to Captain America. I am SO SOOO lucky to have him. I kinda kept putting my foot down about going. If I could wait a few more months it would be in the cheap theater and then I kept hearing how good it was and my patience got the best of me. We went. 


I noticed this necklace because my coworker Megan wears it.

BBB- my dream prince

I wish you all could have come to lunch with me when Bryce smiled as he walked me to my door and opened it for me. He has the sweetest grins and sometimes that alone will make me laugh and so happy. This is the truth, I like my Bryce Byrce baby a lot.

As he says marriage is the goal. I saw this on FB and thought it was interesting.

We had an amazing weekend. 

Friday- We just hung out and got pizza and watched a movie. It was bliss. We watched Stardust and Guilt Trip. HAHA 2 movies. I admit I fell asleep in Star dust and Bryce woke me up as he was going to go. We watched Guilt Trip before Stardust. Both good movies, both on Amazon Prime. I deleted my Netflix. Goodbye. 


We helped Matt, our friend move into his HUGE house. We saw the best deal at a yard sale. Bryce is learning the piano and there was a piano stand for an electric piano-- we had bought one a few weeks before for 60 dollars and the gently used and stronger one was 4 dollars. Thank you again Mexican Cowboy. You made our day! His junk our treasure!

We drove to Orem to pick up something I ordered and got Krispy kremes. YUM they were hot and melted in our mouths.

Then we... returned the new piano stand. boom 60 bones. Then we attempted to go to the aquarium. CLOSED- bummer. We will see you soon, doesn't that look so cool!? Soon I will tell you if it is. 

We went to a piano bar called the Tavernacle. IT WAS SO FUN. 


Church, lunch, institute and the Secrets to being successful. 


1. THE EGYPTIANS WERE PROBABLY THE FIRST TO EXCHANGE WEDDING RINGS. By medieval times, it was believed that a vein ran from the fourth finger of the left hand to the heart, so this became the trendy place to show off your rock.
2. BUT ENGAGEMENT RINGS DIDN’T TAKE OFF UNTIL THE MIDDLE AGES. In 1215, Pope Innocent III declared that there should be a longer waiting period between betrothal and marriage, spiking the ring’s popularity.
3. AND DIAMONDS CAME EVEN LATER. Though the first recorded exchange of a diamond engagement ring was in 1477, when Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to Mary of Burgundy, they weren’t the standard until 1947, when Frances Gerety, who never herself married, coined “A Diamond Is Forever” for De Beers.
4. WHITE WEDDING DRESSES WEREN’T DE RIGUEUR until Queen Victoria wore one to marry Albert of Saxe-Coburg in 1840.
5. IN ANCIENT TIMES, BRIDES CARRIED BUNCHES OF AROMATIC HERBS, like garlic, dill, and rosemary, to ward off evil spirits; this tradition continued into the 1800s. (Guests, it’s said, might also nibble on the herbs for fresh breath.) Queen Victoria, who carried a bouquet of snowdrops, also gets credit for starting the modern floral trend.
6. THROWING THE BOUQUET WASN’T ALWAYS ABOUT CALLING OUT SINGLE LADIES—it started because guests used to tear off pieces of the bride’s dress in an attempt to take some of her luck home. The tossed flowers were intended to distract the crowd so she could get away unscathed.
7. EARLY BRIDESMAIDS WERE DRESSED EXACTLY LIKE THE BRIDE TO CONFUSE EVIL SPIRITS, who might otherwise target the happy couple. It wasn’t until the trend-setting Victorian era that bridesmaids began wearing white dresses with short veils, setting them a bit apart from the bride.
8. THE HONEYMOON COMES FROM A NORSE TRADITION, wherein newlyweds would go into hiding for a month, drinking a cup of honey wine every day.
9. THE BRIDE STANDS TO THE GROOM’S LEFT AT THE ALTAR because in the old days of “marriage by capture” the groom needed his right hand free to fight off other suitors.
10. THE PHRASE “TYING THE KNOT” comes from an old Irish custom called handfasting, which involved tying the bride and groom’s hands together at the ceremony to symbolize their commitment.
11. DURING THE ROMAN EMPIRE, WEDDING CAKES WERE ACTUALLY BREAD, and they were broken over the head of the bride by the groom to symbolize fertility. Today’s tradition of smearing cake on each other’s faces is a little sweeter.

Moments That Matter Most

I love church, today my lovely VTing comp taught the lesson. It was very touching. The moments. It was a very touching lesson.

I think sometimes we get wrapped, especially me. Remember when I use to write husband, fall down from the sky. I mean, Brittani- HellO! Wake up! Wait, enjoy the moments.

There are a lot of moments I remember from 2013, 2012, 2011... back to my earliest memories in California in 1987.

Enjoy the moments we have, those are the things worth remembering and make them good moments.

Culture is Priority One - Tony Hsieh (Zappos)

This is going to be a good book. Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh.


So I was so happy on my detox loving life. I read that taking coconut oil is really good for detoxing. So at lunch I had some coconut oil, and to much. So this is my warning for you all. I had about a 1/4 of cup. It is supposedly really good for you and this lady eats a 1/2 a cup every day and is thriving beyond belief. Well my friends, I got back to work with my green smoothie in hand and BAM that is when it hit me. I had instant pain in my tummy for the next 3 hours SO STRONG.

I read online and you should start with 1 teaspoon then go up from there.

Honestly, I am feeling better today and it goes to show my "extreme" personality, as Chelsea puts it, can be a little to cray cray. So, don't do that.

I ate some crackers and that eased up the pain but didn't take it away.

All the same we still went to the Jazz.

BUT- BE CAUTIOUS OF YOUR INTAKE OF COCONUT OIL! I sure wish I would have known.

On a even heavier note I have been doing a lot of thinking.

We have things we want

  1. I want things on my time table- to personal
  2. My friend who wants a better job
  3. My other friend wants a second baby
  4.  My other friend who wants a better job for her husband
  5. My other friend wants a husband who is nice
  6. My other friend wants a responsible, God fearing husband 
  7. My other friend wants their first baby and are going through testing
  8. My other friend is going through same sex attraction challenges
  9. My other friend has debts and wants them paid off
  10. My other friend  has a son home from a mission and gets to go back in 6 months
  11. My other friend is alone and hasn't met the man of her dreams
  12. My other friends husband loves her and moved her across the country for jobs
  13. My other friend is getting married and doesn't have a job in the city of her future husband
  14. My other friend needs a job in her boyfriends town
  15. My other friend is all graduated and unemployed and with a family
  16. My other friend  has never dated anyone and wants love
  17. My other friend has a baby with health problems
  18. My other friend lost her mom last year
  19. My other friend's husband is in the military
  20. My other friends- with dot dot dot
I am amazed by how conference softens our hearts. I was honestly not looking forward to conference. I always have in the past, every year. I was not at all. I have my own little reasons why and that isn't for you to judge to be frank but this weekend I didn't make conference a huge priority and still for all of us as listed above, the Spirit told us something to remember as we go through life and hard challenges.

Whatever is on our list we have much, we have to much to be grateful for.

I don't really like it when Satan gets the credit but Satan- leave us alone. 

We are way to blessed to be stressed. (I love that)

Grateful in Any Circumstances

Have we not reason to be filled with gratitude, regardless of the circumstances in which we find ourselves?

Click here to watch, read, listen or print


Elder Butterfield who was the director of the Park City Family History Center use to say, I you aren't looking forward to conference it is the first sign you need to repent.

I was looking forward to conference all the way up to the week before. I am not perfect, I am just like the rest of us, working on it. I have had long talks with Bryce and it is helping. I would be lost without him. I think the hardest thing I ever did was not have him from 2009 till November 2013.... those were my hardest years of my life. They were the most loney, the saddest and the over all worst. So this week, compared to then is nothing and that is ONE thing to be grateful for. Okay, I have to do this. LIST!

1. I am grateful for my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and The Holy Ghost, I feel loved, inspired and more close to accomplishment when I am near them. They are who are. They are who is and was. I am because of them. I would never had made it in the dark ages.
2. I am grateful for my family Dad, mom, Chelsea, Aaron, the twins and my sweet Bryce. They have made my life what it is.
3. I am grateful for my friends- They keep me happy and loving life
4. I am grateful for my job and work friends- I have the best job
5. I am grateful for a roof over my head and wonderful roommies
6. I am grateful for Spring and the buds on the trees, the fresh smells out there and the fun to come!
7. I am grateful for SLC- I am glad I got to come here and be with Bryce while we are dating- I have so much fun with him. We go to Park City, to Jazz games, to the movies, shopping, on lunch dates, to Brian Regan, to Heber to his parents, to see his sister and brother in law but basically brother. We go on double dates with my cousins and see them. I LOVE it.
8. Although sometimes my Blaz family can be stinkers none the less- I still love them. Some of my cousins have been there for me, been loyal and so loving. I will always have a special, BIG spot in my heart for the Loganites who I miss dearly.
9. My Tasso family- they are ALWAYS such dears. They have such love, fun and sweetness to them that is hard to replicate. They are lovely..
10. Going on trips- Bryce and I haven't really done to many because work has been busy but I love my past trips and future trips planned. I think we better go down to see some fam soon.

I am much more to be grateful for.

faith, hope and charity, one day at a time and I will get it all perfect. Little steps and then you don't have to do the big ones.

Day 1 of detox and the start of day two

I wasn't to prepared to start but I knew I wanted to start Monday. The determined part of me wanted to. I didn't pack anything for breakfast and i normally eat oatmeal at my desk everyday so I couldn't eat that. I didn't eat till lunch at one.

I went to the grocery store- I never realized how much junk I eat. EW!

I was CRAVING cauliflower. I had that with tomato paste and garlic and made a big ol smoothie. TASTY!

It was super good.

For dinner I had Buffalo cauliflower wings, avocado and a berry smoothie with carrots, strawberries, banana, raspberries, grapes, and lemon juice. TASTY! I was so full.

I pulled the cauliflower off the head, laid some foil on the pan, put some olive oil on top of the "wings" and then drizzled the hot sauce on top. Then baked at 450 for 15 minutes. After I took the foil and dumped it in my bowl- easy clean up and VERY GOOD.

So yesterday I ate a head of cauliflower. My tummy feels awesome. I have felt the detox already take over in the healing. I feel skinnier today- which one day couldn't make a difference, I think so. 

Now i am drinking my leftover smoothie from yesterday. I was so full at night. 

OH my roommate gave me some coconut to gnaw on. SO good too. I have got to have Bryce help me bust one of those open. Yummy!

BTW- Bryce is so supportive of everything and that is huge. He is so great. He even took a sip of my berry smoothie even though he thought he might die before HAHA.  I am so happy I get to date him.

Going to the Jazz tonight- GO JAZZ!

Spring into detox

My boss totally inspired me. She said it is good to do a detox in the spring, new season new and fresh! She is full of wisdom.

1. Simple Fruit and Veggie Detox

Best used for: A quick cleanse of your system; a good beginning detox.
Length: 2-3 days
Clark likes this option because it’s relatively easy to do. “The idea is to give your body a break from processed foods, dairy and animal products,” she says. Processed foods — so prevalent in the American diet — can be full of toxins and chemicals, and it’s a good experiment to see how it feels to avoid them for a few days. Animal products have protein and fat. Although both are essential nutrients, they create more work for your digestive tract, so it makes sense to avoid them while trying to cleanse. You can eat your fruits and veggies raw or cooked, but avoid additives like butter or sugar.

Kaylie- the great gal she is committed to do the detox with me. We are doing it for as suggested 2-3 days. It is great for the beginners. 

She texted me this morning- I am starving already.


Conference weekend

I blogged on my phone and it didn't publish- how rude.

Friday- We went to the Jazz game. Thanks to my work. Then half way through Carrie said that she and her sister were there and we sat by them for the second half. Bryce and I had a great time. We always find time for laughing and having fun. It was fun to sit close up too!

The Jazz even won!! GO JAZZ! 

Bryce couldn't leave his house till the dishes were done. He is a worker man! None of the dishes were even his, and he washed by hand!

Saturday-  I had all confidence in watching conference but pride has ruled my heart.... I fell asleep! After the first sesion we drove up to Park City for lunch and a pretty drive. 


My phone is so cool- I love these shots

Got icecream and a belly ache- yummy

Sunday we were deterimined to stay awake and we drove up through the canyons of confernce. It was magical. Listening to the Prophet as we drove. Singing a childs prayer together. 

Sunday night-

We went to Centerville up to his Uncle Tj's and Aunt Esters. We drove with Bryce's parents.

It was fun and they have a pretty yard.

Their daughter Nicolette told some wild stories. It was fun!

Bryce is ABSOLUTELY my dream guy. He is a tease and when I will go to get a chip with salsa he will tease me and hold the chip in. Or when I am going to dial on my phone or text he will shake my hand. Or when he is driving he will pretend like the brakes go out. Or he goes fast on the corners and I think I am going to die. HA HA I love it. I love him. 

This will be a memorable weekend.

sad things- if you don't like sad things read on

There are sad things in the world and when I am sad. I love to see things that are more sad then mine. Somehow it makes me feel better.

I have been a little sad this week. Just really about me. I wish I had someone to blame or someone to talk to about how they made me feel but it is me. How I feel.

I quickly glanced at facebook and where sometimes I don't like to look to see everyone in their happy perfect or so it seems lives I found sad.

3 stories....
1. This is a story about a girl...
... and her dad taking pictures like those her mom and her dad took when they got married. The mom has passed from cancer I believe. SAD but they took such beautiful spin on things.


2.  This story is more to home.

My previous home in Logan. A girl that I don't know what killed last night in a car accident. It is heart breaking. I read a couple posts and SO many people had the nicest things to say about her. They didn't have to say those things... I had to read about her. Just reading the things, looking at all her pictures and some comments she really was a sweet girl. She is already missed and will be missed for years to come. She seemed like a girl made of thunder and roses- I know she will make a difference wherever she goes. She is so loved. I love her and I pray for her family, boyfriend and friends. I pray for those she will touch in heaven.


3. Bombs from North to South Korea.

SO unexpected and showing how wicked the world is.


Life is meant to be hard. We are meant to be tested. We are meant to have each breaking point. We are meant to feel the wrath we are meant to feel kicked down, we are meant to feel we can't go on much further. We are meant to feel these things.

I talked to my friend tonight and it was SO interesting. I can't get over how much I need validation.
I need it, thrive for it. I want it so much. I need affirmations to feel validated and I need physical affirmation to feel validated. I don't like smother- otherwise it feels fake.

I have been going to the chiropractor and Dr.Conger has helped enormously!! I use to not be able to look up to kiss Bryce and now I can.

Love that- this isn't sad enough for being a sad post.

Okay one more story-

4. Black fish-
It is on Netflix and it has really made me think different about animals. Now I question all captive animals and worry about these fish daily..... I think I watched this a month ago.

They look so happy- I wish they had someone to talk to, a friend or something- I wonder if those born in speak the language?

Weekend with mom and Bryce Bryce baby

Friday night

Date night with Tyler and Whitney! Bryce and I had so much fun. I didn't take any pictures surprisingly. They are a darling couple and make me laugh constantly. Bryce was so happy to be with his best friend. Tyler drove us in this little, speedy smooth car.

We went to sushi! It was yummy. I loved it. Then err went to the movies. We saw Noah. It was pretty good but not like the book. Aka Bible.


My mummy got in! So fun! We went to the library, then we went to my favorite walking spot that I did when I was a sister missionary. Then we went to the lovely boyfriends house for a tour. I'm so similar to thoughts I have with her. The things she asked Bryce were things I asked him. Fun fun.

Then we had lunch art my house..then we went to conference. Bryce dropped us off and picked us up. super nice.

Mom went to bed and Bryce and I watched jack the giant bean stalk slayer. I fell asleep but it was fun.


Church with all of us ;)

Lunch and naps

Then Aunt Mary lous and family for dinner.

So fun and very tasty. Bryce got comfy and fell asleep it was so sweet. I love him. I love my mom visiting.

There is something so magical about falling in love. It seems to take away from all other woes of the world. I feel like a princess in the middle of a fallen world. I feel like I should wave a magic wand and everything would come true for everyone.

Once upon a time there was a little girl who lived in a far away land. She was driven by adventure, spoke with love and wanted the best for everyone. She had many friends in far away countries, all wonderful and sweet and kind. As she watched people who were in love she dreamed of the man who would be the one to whisk her away. She would stay up for hours thinking about him and when she missed him she wrote to him. She sang songs about him she just loved him already. If only she would meet him. She tried to be patient and wait for him. She waited and waited. She started to imagine more and more and she couldn't stop herself. She wanted someone she could talk to and someone who could laugh with her. She wanted to tease and knew she needed her man to be able to laugh and joke. She wanted someone strong who could carry her through the threshold.

1st John 4:7-9
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.r

Wonderfull good advice,bbb

I have no idea why everyone keeps giving me advice about marriage....

Everyone says enjoy the dating now... will do. They said, do things. 

My one friend told me this when I asked her what I can do to prepare

1) humility. So much humility that when he points out your flaws you agree and start working on it instead of being hurt that someone you love could possibly say that to you.
2) patience. When you pick up his underwear off the floor or clear his plate for the 1000th time you don't get upset
3) selflessness. Realizing the minute you say I do that you are now living for him, which sounds fun except on the days when you get no sleep or don't eat so that he can.
4) letting go of everything YOU wanted because he's too stubborn to let go of his dreams but expects you to do it for him.

"Grow Old With You"

[Billy Idol (Speaking):] Good afternoon everyone.
We're flying at 26,000 feet, moving
up to thirty thousand feet, and then we've got clear skies
all the way to Las Vegas, and right now we're bringin you some in-flight
entertainment. One of our first-class passengers would like to sing you a song
inspired by one of our coach passengers, and since we let our first-class
passengers do pretty much whatever they want, here he is.

[Robbie Hart (Singing):]
I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All I wanna do is grow old with you

I'll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

I'll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold

Need you
Feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed if you've had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you

fun yurt night

We went with my work up to this yurt!
AMAZING! Pictures tell all ;)
