Well Hello...

I am the most terrible blogger ever!! Its just that life has been sooo busy!! (haha but isn't everyone's? ;) But really, life has been crazy. I am working full time now and Livie is in kindergarten and it just seems like I never have time to blog or check blogs anymore :(
Anyway I'm here now and thought I would post a couple updates...if anyone even reads this anymore, haha.
So lets see...Life is good. Busy, but really good :) I am working full time and its really made me realize how lucky I am that I was able to spend so much time with Livie before she started school. My time with her is precious and I'm so grateful I have a job that allowed me to bring Livie with me to work and now work while she's in school.

Oh and did I mention that Livie is in KINDERGARTEN!!!! I can't even believe it. Its just awful. Ok, well for her its great, she loves it. She really likes her teacher and LOVES learning. She is constantly drawing and practicing her letters until she has no paper left to draw on (that is until she moves on to her bedroom furniture...little stinker!)
I just cannot beleive my baby girl is old enough to be in kindergarten...I remember when she was just a newborn rocking her to sleep and thinking how 'some day' she would start kindergarten...
Well that same day came way too soon!!!
I've held it together pretty well though...I didn't even cry the first week I had to drop her off at school...but we won't get into the second week... haha.

Livies first day of school:

And the next day:

(Instead of posting a trillon pics, I'll just save all the other 'next day' pictures for my own scrap book... ;)

In June, my brother, Elder Logan Phillips came home from serving a mission in Tx.
We were sooooo excited to see him!!!!
I think we might've overwhelmed him a lil when he first got home, heehee. We couldn't help it, we were just so excited!!
(Livie ended up having to spend a couple days in the hospital right before Logan came home because of a really bad seizure/breathing episode she had...so we were realllly happy that we were able to come home in time to see Logan....and that Livie bounced back so well health wise :)

I've gotten to spend a lot of time with my sisters lately. I can honestly say they are my best friends :) I don't know what I'd do with out em!! We have sooo much fun just being together and hanging out. During the summer my mom and Shayla would come stay with us and we'd make a girls wknd of it. We definately made a lot of fun memories ;)
My awesome, talented cousin, Sarah, took these 'sister pics' for us and we gave them to my mom for her B day :) It was a lof of fun making these pictures

We had a GREAT summer and spent a lot of time with the fam :)

Now that Logan's back we got to go riding together... (we were watching the boys ride on the big jumps... and maybe posing a lil too for this picture ;)
Love this girl...she made me laugh every single day!!!!!

Of course...while we were home we got to get some farm work in
And then we even talked the bro's into coming down to SL and hangin with us over a few wknds. :)

Also, in June... my beautiful Bestie got MARRIED!! She was such a GORGEOUS bride and looked stunning on her SPECIAL day :)

Mr. and Mrs. Andy Rowell :)

I got to be a bridesmaid :)

And...I even caught the BOUQUET!!! and you know what they say...if you catch the bouquet you're next in line for being the bride. Sillllly little saying....

But actually.....it must hold some truth... cuz....

I'M GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the night it all went down...I totally did NOT even see it coming ;)
(hence the hot farm clothes I'm sportin ;)

I am sooooo excited to marry Rob!!! He is an AMAZING guy :) :)
He's so good to Livie and me :)

Well, thats my life lately... So in a nutshell...life is GOOD :)
