Why I love making our bed!





Making Scott & my bed each and every day is one of my "wifey" duties that I absolutely LOVE doing. 
"Why?" you ask. 
My amazing Pastor Marty had us do a pre-marriage counseling course. Because Scott and I had a long distance engagement, we had to do it online apart and then would talk about it together on the phone afterwards. 
One of the last sessions was the wife talking about making their bed and how she makes it so special by praying over her and her husbands relationship. 
I adopted this and made it my own.

I love having the alone time praying to God about every aspect of my relationship with my Husband. 
Praying that God would protect our relationship.
That God would help grow us closer to Him & closer to each other.
That when we are apart, God will make us stronger.
Praying for us spiritually, physically, and emotionally.
That God would help keep our bedroom sacred. 
That God would keep satan out and very far away from our home.
That God would give Scott the strength to lead our family.
That God will give me the strength to keep order in our home.
Thanking for all of our blessings.
To keep our love growing & stronger than anything! 

So this is why making our bed is one of my favorite things to do. It is so peaceful to me and such a great way for me to grow closer not only to Scott, but to my God. 
I need that more than anything
I also love that it is serving Scott, wifey brownie points! :]

If you are engaged, I really advise pre-marriage counseling.
If you are married, I advise you to try to pray over your relationship with your husband when you are doing the chore of making the bed.
If you are dating or single, I advise you to pray for your future husband and the relationship that you will share. 

Now go earn some wifey brownie points! ;]

One of the best weeks in North Carolina!

Well here it is everyone, the post about one of my favorite weeks here in North Carolina.

MY FAMILY CAME!
I was so excited when my mom decided to plan a girls trip to see me [all but my aunt..but she's too good for us and hunted in Montana instead haha Love you Taffy!] But it was so much fun to have a count down with my mom & help plan all of the fun things we wanted to do.
So here are pictures of our adventures!  

Keni, Kenz, Grandma, & Mummy Dearest leaving Utah.

First things first, BEACH TRIP! After we went to church, we just had to go put our toes in the sand and wade in the ocean.


 Mommy hugs, THE best.




 

 The Mr. kissing his Mrs.


 Mallow moo, soaked.

 The first rain storm that we got caught in!

We had a littttttle fun! But no, we are not expecting. 
{Well, I'M not...Scott ha} 

Early birthday to Mummy, late birthday to Grandma,

Second rain storm, driving in Lucee! :/

We had a great girls night. Nails, girl talk, & had my dad tell us a bedtime story on the phone!


Ritas. Delicious!



I definitely needed a visit from my family and loved every moment! Even the chaotic moments, realizing each moment was a blessing. I thank my family for coming to visit and also my loving Husband for letting five girls be in his house for a week. One lucky man! 
I love you guys! Now only a month & a half till I come visit!
