I have some really great friends, but one friend in particular seems to always make my day. Her name is Sarah, I call her Sar-i. About 6 years ago I was daing this guy named Paul. He had some amazing friends who took me in and made me feel like I was part of the group. One of those friends was Sar-i, who at first didn't even like me!!! But I guess I grew on her! Even after Paul and I broke up and I got together with my now husband Jared they still remained my friends. Sarah and I became really close. She made me feel comfortable, and worthwhile. I have never met anyone who is more loving and thoughtful, than she is. She was my maid of honor at my wedding, and will be my friend forever. 2 years ago, my husband Jared, was in a horrible car accident in Phoenix, which is hundreds of miles away from my home in Salt Lake City. I had to fly down and be with him, and stay for about 2 months while he was in the hospital. While we were away, Sarah took care of our Dora, and our house. She packed up a bunch of stuff for me, since when I left I had two shirts and a pair of pants with me. The most important thing she did was be there for me. She gave me the support I needed and a shoulder to cry on. I needed her more than I can ever say, and she was there for me. Sarah has the ability to make everyone around her feel good about them self. She can talk to anyone, and will go out of her way to make you happy. Sar-i is one of those people that you are so protective of who she dates because she deserves the absolute best. I wont let anyone less than that take her away from me.

This past march, Jared and I wanted to do something special to celebrate our anniversary. We decided to go on a cruise. We left out of Houston for a seven night cruise on the Norwegian Dream. When we first saw our ship, I couldn't believe how big and beautiful it was.

I was a little tiny bit nervous, because I had never been on a ship even close to that size! We boarded and found our room. When we walked in it took me a minute to realize that, although we had only paid for an inside cabin, we had been assigned an outside cabin, with a big window!! How lucky are we?! After unpacking, we wandered around the ship for a while and got some lunch.
I could not believe how much food there was. One day when I walked back into the room after having been out and about, there was a surprise for me, a bunny made of towels. Isn't it cute?
The first day we were at sea, and Jared got seasick!! I sat by the pool and read a book and got tan. The next day we were in port, in Progresso Mexico, where we went to see the ruins at Chichen Itza.
It was incredible. It was also amusing because everywhere you looked there was someone selling something, and man were they intent!! The following day we were going to be doing a couple of boat dives in Cozumel. I was super excited. Then, we awoke, and the wind was blowing like crazy. So unfortunately our dive was cancelled. Since we couldn't dive, we wandered around Cozumel for the day. To cheer me up, (and because it was our anniversary weekend) Jared bought me a beautiful Tanzanite ring and bracelet. It's absolutely incredible. The following day we were in Belize, and we went snorkleing and swam with sting rays!!! There were so many of them. We even got to feed them!! They are very slimey feeling.
The last few days were at sea, so I was able to read, relax, and get tan.The final night we had a chocoholics buffet. There was chocolate sculptures, ice sculptures etc. Beautiful.
I would suggest that anyone who gets the chance to GO CRUISING!!!

Visiting Japan!

My honey and I went to Japan in October of 2006, his brother lives there and we wanted to visit. When we arrived in Tokyo, to connect to Okinawa, we saw our aircraft, a Boeing 747 painted with Pokemon characters. I laughed so hard, and knew right then and there that I would have a great trip. Which we did. When we finally arrived in Okinawa, after about 30 hours of taveling, I was so exhausted I could barely sit up straight!!! I slept for hours, and woke up early the next morning to one of the most beautiful sites I had ever seen, the beach view from my brother in law's house. Isn't it incredible? We spent the first few days helping out, because 2 days after we arrived our first neice on Jared's side of the familly was born!! What perfect timing!! She is a beautiful little girl. While we were at the apartment one day, Jared came upon a little abandoned puppy, who I named Mia, because she was missing in action!!! This is our little Mia!
It was really sad when we had to say goodbye to her. A few days later we got an opportunity to go SCUBA diving on the Keramas. (an island chain south of Okinawa) We went on two boat dives. I saw a sea snake, a bunch of awsome fish, and best of all, a sea-turtle!!!

We also went on a WWII tour of the island, it was really interesting but also sad. The poor Okinawan people suffered greatly under the Imperial Japanese rule. We got to go in the underground tunnel system used by the Japanese Navy. We also saw these incredible caves that the citizens hid in!

I don't think I have ever had such an incredible trip. I recommend that everyone should go there. The people are so helpful, and kind, I never felt uncomfortable at all!! I hope to go back soon.

More About Me

I am happily married, and I have a weiner-dog named Dora, a siemese cat named Kitty, four chickens, and two geese.

Jared and I like to see how long we can make our Dora be. She is so funny, we really love our critters.
