Giddy on Christmas Eve!!

All my roommates are really sick of me!! We went to a movie and I sat and bounced the whole time - I was completely unaware until they threatened me! I have finished the most stressful week of my entire life! I spent at least 10-12 hours at school everyday this week trying to finished 4 tests, and 2 huge projects due by the end of the week. I made it through and it is finally over. Now all I can feel is bubbly joy!

I get to see Taylor Phillips Tomorrow!!!

I'v tried going to bed but, no can do! I am just way to anxious to sleep my mind can't stop racing, and I can't stop all the energy from coming! A four hour drive, two hour flight, another two hours flight and then I will finally get a much needed hug from my bestest (yes its a word) friend! :)


Mother-In-Laws and Rotten Children!

I received this email from my future Mother-in-law today and it was just so adorable I wanted to share it with everyone. It began with me thanking her for raising a great son.I am so grateful I have such a great family to marry into!

"Moms and dads pray all their lives that there is another family out there preparing some cute little blonde-hair 4-year-old girl to be the future wife of their (well, in our case) 9-year-old rotten little boy. Heavenly Father does answer prayers and we ARE SO GRATEFUL for you!" -Dixie Phillips

Mother if your reading this your probably thinking, "
Hey Martha was rotten too!"
I think both our mothers would agree that Taylor and I were both the little bratty kids, but we both grew up to be pretty awesome people if you ask me!

So I just wanted to give a shout out to both our mothers who stuck to us and turned those bratty little kids into awesome adults! We both app
reciate all the time and effort they put into raising us and we are so grateful for the friendship that came out of it! We LOVE our Mothers!

(Sorry I don't have a picture and Dixie and Taylor!)

So to all those who wonder why I refer to Martha as my Penguin allow me to clarify. A male penguin searches all his life for a mate in which he would be able to spend the rest of his life with. Once he finally finds that special female penguin he sticks with her for the rest of his life. He sacrifices himself to make sure that he watches over her and the future offspring which they have together. Now the interesting thing about the male penguin is that if something where to ever happens to the female penguin, the male penguin would never go and find another mate no matter how long he should live. I am in love with Martha and no matter what happens I will never leave her side and could never find someone to replace her.

This was conference weekend and I was able to see my future wife in all her glory ;) I'm pretty sure she's going to put me on probation for awhile for posting this one, but I found it only fair because she posted the picture of me in my EcoFirst outfit.

Greatest Girl

Just so everyone knows, I have the most amazing girl ever. As I am out working she is always sending me uplifting and encouraging messages to keep me going. I'm not sure what I did to receive such an amazing fiance. I am so excited to see here in 2 weeks and 1 day, so that I can put that shiny rock on her finger and let everyone know that she is mine forever! I love Martha.

I just wanted to share how proud I was of Taylor. He is my Ecosmart man! I tease him about how he looks like a tennis boy in his work clothes.

(p.s. Taylor don't be mad at me for posting this picture!! Just laugh!)

For the past three days it has been raining in Kansas City. Despite that Taylor goes out walking in the rain for at least nine hours knocking on doors trying to sell pest control. This sounds like the worst job ever! Getting rejected in the pouring rain over and over again until the sun goes down.

But yesterday was a happy rainy day! Taylor was able to sell 8 accounts! If you didn't know - this is A LOT! In the long run this one day made him over a thousand dollars - In ONE DAY!! That is very impressive. He broke his personal high, and he is also in the top 3 sellers on his team! He is working so hard, and always being so optomistic! I am so proud of him for doing so well yesterday - he has only been working for 2 weeks and this is his first year. So selling 8 is pretty much a pro champ job! He is so dedicated to doing a good job and making making money to start our life together!

Denver, CO

We decided it was about time for me to come visit Denver, CO! Taylor grew up as a southern California boy, but his parents now live in Denver - so thats home! Taylor planned lots of fun stuff for us to do while I was there we:
Went to the museum and saw all the dinosaurs, but most of all body world was amazing!

Then we went to a Rockies Baseball game.. but then it was cancelled! But it was a fun walk anyways :)
We visited family! I got to meet all the cousins which was fun! It rained, and snowed, and hailed while I was there but we still had a lot of fun just spending time together in his home town. I look forward to going back. The mountains where beautiful, amazing shopping, but most of all the family. I have some really great future in-laws I couldn't have asked for a better family to Marry into!

The Love Of My Life

One day I met a girl in the middle of a football field, holding a greasy Bajio pan that was dripping all over her hands. She was shivering, wearing Gap jeans, runners, with her hair down. This was by far the most gorgeous girl that I had seen in a long time. This was my blind date and I was one lucky man. After the date this girl and I would continue to talk everyday and every night, she was the highlight of my life. I was fortunate enough that she wouldn't say "no" and she was patient enough with me. How lucky I am that this girl would one day become my wife. I love you Martha Bishop (Phillips)


Blind date..

I went on a blind date that changed my life forever. This is where I met my Fiance Taylor! We could not stop talking and instantly clicked. Every since then we have been best friends. I can't imagine my life without him. He makes the hard times better, and the happy times happier. In 117 days we get to start new lives together! We are getting Married on September Forth in Logan Utah! We are both so excited that we get to spend the rest of time with our best friend!
