preston always gives me a hard time for crying. but this brought tears to my eyes, i am so excited to spend the rest of my life with my husband. and after this life i get to have him forever more! i am truly grateful for the blessings of eternal marriage, and for the relationship i have with the love of my life and my Heavenly Father. i would be nothing without them!

i just thought i'd share a few treasures i found while pinterest-ing. i didn't upload them the correct way, but i'll figure out how and do it next time. enjoy!

{crates transformed into shelving}

{stair case / slide}

{this will be in my kitchen}

{rake = necklace holder}

{television frame}


{this post is unorganized forgive me}

i am grateful for a lot of things

but this summer has been a real eye opener for me. i have been blessed with more than i will ever deserve, and too often i forget just how spoiled my wonderful little life is.

my husband is, without a doubt the hardest worker i've ever known. he is so much more than the handsome, easy going boy i fell in love with. preston is disciplined, focused, dedicated, creative, head strong, self motivated, and hard working.

he is always thinking about our future, with me and our future family in mind. preston is terribly thoughtful and wants me to have nothing less than everything i have ever dreamt of. the poor guy puts up with hours upon hours of me brain storming names for our unborn children. {which i've already picked, wish i could share... but i can't have my names stolen by my loved ones}

preston lets me make decisions, even if he doesn't entirely like the choices i've made. for example, our weddings colors were {white, black, grey, and green} and he HATES the color green. it is his least favorite color... he likes pink more than green. haha, and he still let me have a green wedding!

he is extremely patient. every morning he lets me sleep in, which means we are late to work... every morning! but he lets me sleep, even though it drives him crazy to be late to anything.

last year preston won a bike at school, and i got really jealous that he had a bike and i didn't. so that week he took me to the store and let me pick out any bike that i wanted.

and when i don't feel like making dinner he'll come home from working all day and cook us a meal, and a lot of the time he'll help me clean the kitchen after wards.

i have a problem, every single night {no joke} before bed i have to clean the entire house. dishes, windows, floors, bed, you name it. and my dear husband helps me clean every time, which starts really late on some nights i wont start cleaning till 1-2 in the AM.

i could go on forever about the amazing things my husband does for me {puts up with} but its just about time for me to cook dinner. and he would prefer dinner over a cheesy post. so i better hop on it.

i'm addicted.

always remember.


preston and i made a little trip to bluewater village (new mexico) to visit his family. his wengert family had a reunion this last week. unfortunately by the time we made it to town almost everyone was already gone! but we still loved spending time with grandpa, carol, tondra trishell and wesley's families.

uncle wesley and grandpa wengert are two of the sweetest men i've ever met. they would give you the shirt off their backs... instead of their shirts, they saddled up some horses and let me ride around two days in a row! not gonna lie i'm getting pretty dang good at this whole cowgirl scene. i even bought some boots!

my horses name was bay. he was very gentle but also very stubborn. little punk!

preston said that one day when i grow up we are going to live in a little town with a lot of land. and he said that i can have a horse of my own. so i decided that i am going to get me a registered american paint. still haven't picked out her name, but she is going to be spoiled rotten!!! and i'm going to have an adorable dairy cow, and a little baby pig, and some chickens, and two african ridgedback puppies.

i am really excited to grow up and be a farm girl... can you blame me?

i'm your huckleberry!

so my husband is obsessed with this movie, he's been talking about it since our first date! up until last night i had never seen it.

little did i know...

this movie is amazing! i thought preston was a little crazy, but he's totally right. you could quote this movie all night and day!!!!!!!

"you gonna do something, or just stand there and bleed..."

"i'm your huckleberry."

"you skin that smoke wagon and we'll see what happens"

"oh johnny. i apologize. i forgot you were there, you may go now."

"i have two guns. one for each of ya."

"look, darlin', it's johnny ringo. deadliest pistoleer since wild bill, they say. what do you think, darlin', should I hate him?"

"why that is a hell of a thing for you to say to me."

"i don't think i'll let you arrest us today."

our swing!

for those of you who don't know.

preston and i have a little thing for porch swings, and one inparticular!  on march 2nd of 2010 preston and i met in snowflake arizona for our very first date. we ended up at my parents 2nd home sitting on this swing, and that is where preston kissed me for the first time. 7 months after our first kiss (on a porch swing) preston asked me to be his forever and ever... on a porch swing!

so you see. we are porch swing lovers! this picture was taken over the 24th of july this year. it makes me smile everytime! one day, when we buy our home we will have a porch swing. hopefully my dad will give in and let us buy this swing from him!

nummy bacon

maybe i am really late on finding this little secret out, but just in case you don't know yet... there is a way to make bacon taste even better! i didn't believe it.

now i believe.

take a jelly roll sheet, line it with tin foil and place your desired amount of bacon strips. (spread evenly apart) now sprinkle brown sugar on top... try different amounts to see what you like the best. now throw the bacon (on the jelly roll sheet) into a pre-heat oven (350) keep an even on your bacon, flip it when its getting close to being done. when its cooked to your liking let cook and eat your heart out!!

seriously tastes to good.

24th festivities!

preston and his buddy andrew drove to snowflake friday morning to pick me up from my momma's house. he brought his hot biker chick along, her name is taylor (i think) haha

isaac loved seeing the motorcycles, and he liked the fire helmet!

preston FORCED me to put a helmet on, i HATE wearing helmets! i had to poke his nose to let him know how upset i was at him for being a bully.

when preston and i got to st johns friday morning we rushed over to his high school football field so he could relive his glory days!!! haha, they had a little throwing league. preston's team won, he was the sexiest man out there.

preston and nathan did the egg toss together at the rodeo!

after the rodeo, my family came to st johns for the camp fire round up!

after the round up preston and i went to the st johns family dance! we danced our little hearts out. saturday morning preston and i were in snowflake for the pioneer day parade! this is my grandma and grandpa :)

craig and tina!

me and isaac waving for candy during the parade. he's adorable

i love this picture, i want twins soooo bad! maybe one day preston and i will have a set of our own.

after the parade we went back to st johns and went shooting with our buddy andrew. i caught a horny toad, he was so little and so cute!

the boys used .223 bullets as ear plugs! are they gangster or are they gangster?!

i'm in love with him boy!


after shooting we went to the st johns pioneer day program (which was hilarious) then we went to the adult dance, and once again danced the night away! we had a blast spending time with our friends and family all weekend long. its amazing how much we take for granted. we are so blessed.

i want one.....

preston wants this kind of dog so bad! whenever he sees one he gets all giddy, its adorable. i know the video is too big for my blog, but whatevs

beef stroganoff

this is one of my very favorite recipes! i've been making it for years, but i've never completely stuck to the recipes measurements. so feel free to season this dish however you want! 

you will need the following ingredients:

1 white onion
2 lbs. round steak (BEEF)
2 cups water
2 cubes/teaspoons beef bouillon
2 tablespoons katsup
1 tablespoons mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1-2 minced cloves of garlic
4 drops Tabasco sauce
5 tablespoons flours
seaons of your choice
{i use garlic salt, black pepper, mrs. dash, italian seasoning, seasoned salt}
1 pint sour cream
serve on rice {my favorite} or noodles {never tried it, i like my rice}

finely chop your onion and cut your beef into nickel/quarter sized pieces.
throw your onion and beef into a big/deep cooking pan and stir occasionally until your meat is browned and your onions aren't crunchy.

now add all of the ingredients from water to the seasonings
{this is were things get tricky}
the only thing that i measure is the water and flour, everything else i do by taste! so maybe just try following the measurements, then taste it to see if there is anything else it needs.
{i added two hand fulls of destemmed spinach to this batch}

cook till the sauce thickens. then add your sour cream!

eat over rice/noodles and enjoy!!!

{playing house}

preston and i had an amazing weekend, we got to stay out at the sego's house all weekend long and take care of their kiddos while they took a little vacation to colorado! it was a blast. we got there friday evening, i played with the girls all saturday while preston was at work. when he got home we went swimming, played at the park and got mexican popsicles! sunday morning we took the girls to church, and that evening preston's family (dad, mom, cami, karli) got there. janalee and justin got home that same night. all in all it was an exciting weekend.

preston and i both enjoyed staying in a place bigger than a shoe box, and we loved being able to bbq and play in the yard, the girls were adorable, and we got to spend time with family!!!

here are a few pictures from our kiddy pool fun-tivity!
