something else i am right about

today is my parent's 34th wedding anniversary. as my mom said, "we're celebrating, just in different places."

my parents were sealed in the salt lake temple.


thomas and i were sealed in the bountiful temple. july 9th we celebrated our 9th anniversary.

 i am happy. today i wanted to bonk the kids heads together and i'm beyond ecstatic for school to start in 10 days. i'm knee deep in the middle of packing for yet another move(thankfully the house we bought is only a few miles away) and thomas is working a billion million hours. but i choose happy and grateful for all that i have.

recently i read a quote by cameron diaz stating, "I think we have to make our own rules. I don't think we should live our lives in relationships based off old traditions that don't suit our world any longer."

well to cameron diaz i say, YOU ARE WRONG! committing with someone and working together and forgiving daily is worth more than any fleeting relationship or shallow experience. we cannot let ourselves think that simply because something is hard it is a "dying institution". being married is hard. i am flawed. thomas is flawed. i like things my way(because i'm right).  thomas and i can't take a trip without someone throwing up in the car, plan a party without a miscommunication, talk budget without an eye roll. and heaven forbid we make it to church on time(this hair doesn't just happen).

but i'll keep giving him really good back scratches and he will keep bring me glasses of kitchen(NOT BATHROOM) water at night.

first of all i was expecting your post to be funny and when you got to the part where your mom said they were celebratiing in different places, i made one of those unexpected cry gulp noises. pretty. haha.

then, as usual, your post made me smile and laugh. i love that you choose to be happy, and that you never make it to church on time, and that the hair is a work of art - because it is.

and for the record, you really are the cutest girl. ever. ever ever. ever ever ever.

and with that i say ... chow and that i love ya! you are a great role model.

please give your mom my love.

You're right that Cameron is wrong. Well-put, Heidi! And we all eye-roll during budget talks.
