I'm almost there!

You always appreciate things more after waiting a long time, praying and fasting and trying to be patient for it. Well, what I have waited for for so long is finally just around the corner!!!
Geoff got a job in an Exercise Physiologist's office and he has already started part time and as soon as my job will let me I will be done and he will be full time :) He contacted them a while ago since he is going to school to be an Exercise Physiologist and just wanted to see what they were all about. And they emailed and said they had an opening and to come interview! He loves it so far. They are going to work with his school schedule in the fall and.... everything just..... came together :) I'm so happy for him. Its perfect for what Geoff needed and perfect for me and Savana too! Heavenly Father knows our situations and what is best for us.  Ever since I found out my heart has been bursting with gratitude. I'm thankful for my little girl, and my AMAZING husband, and that Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers. I'm thankful for our darling little home and friends close by for play dates. I'm grateful that it came at this time so I can really appreciate this blessing.
 I am so excited planning my days with Savana I can hardly sleep. I have 2 years of "mommy ideas" overflowing my brain. I love to play with Savana and teach her things. Our first day together we are going to make peanut butter playdough! We are going to bake bread and read and read and read and read! She loves books :) And we are going to get a 7 Peaks pass and go swimming this summer! And go on walks, do yoga, and play "soccer ball" (as she calls soccer)... and play at the park and go to the zoo and the aquarium and play dress up and visit cousins and friends, and do sidewalk chalk and finger paint and blow colored bubbles... Crayola Colored Bubbles Wand Set
YES COLORED BUBBLES! Shhh. Don't tell Savana that one, I have a feeling the hoppity, soft, fuzzy, adorable Easter Bunny might bring them to her :)
Oh my little mommy heart us just bursting with joy! The other day I was getting ready to take Savana over to her grandma/grandpas house (where she never wants to leave because she has so much fun and is so loved) and she did not want to cooperate and kept saying "No mama, home....home." I told her that soon her mommy was going to stay home with her all the time, everyday, all day long! And she looked at me and stopped wiggling and said in a very serious, unbelieving kind of when a kid sees Disneyland... "no wayyyyy?" It was so cute.
I love my life :)

Hinkey and Nonah

This is currently Savana's favorite book. She always wants it read to her before bed and kisses president Hinckley on every page. When the book is over she says "Mo Hinkey! (more Hinckley) It melts my heart.
I'm also pretty proud that she tells me the story of Nonah (Jonah)... in only a few words. She says "Nonah, Go Ninva (Ninevah).. NO! HIDE! Storm... gulp... pray...sorry...spit out.....Nonah happy." Short and sweet. She tells it to me every night after we turn off the lights when we are done with Hinkey :) She is so sweet and I'm so blessed to be her mommy! I can't wait to spend more time with her :)

Epic Dental

Today is my last day at Epic Dental. Is so crazy. I have loved this place for so long! Best boss and coworkers in the world! My heart will always have a special place for Epic. They have been so good to me and I appreciate it so much. I'm so sad to leave but at the same time I will get to spend so much more time with my little angel and I'm excited and know that it is the right thing to do. Its still just sad to leave the best company ever!
Goodbye 4:39am alarm- you will not be missed!
Goodbye crazy divers on I15... you won't be missed either :)
Goodbye funny work phone calls that crack me up!
Goodbye best job in the world....
Hello morning workout!
Hello morning cartoons while eating cereal on the couch with my baby!
All the projects in my house... better get ready to be attacked... I have time to get to you now!
Husband, you have your wife back get ready to see me a LOT more :)
Savana, you are an angel and your mommy is excited to be with you! Lots of stories, piggie back rides, yoga, crafts and mommy play time are in the near future! I can't wait!

Epic, Thanks for everything. Its very much appreciated and I will miss you.

I felt like there was something wrong with me last night, I got zero sleep because I was crying because I was remembering all the good times at Epic. Lame right? But seriously, Donald Bailey is the best boss ever. He added maternity insurance just so I could have Savana and I will forever be grateful for that! Todd Barfuss is a great manager, Ill miss the "You do good work" reminders I always get... Megan, Alexis, Tandra, Spencer, Kevin, BR, and Whitney Baker have all been a blast to work with!

If anyone wants to get the best dental products in the world check out Epic Dental... they rock :) I will never use a different dental product as long as I live....
