One of our favorite places to go and hang out is Sundance ski resort. I love the environment and the Sundance gift shop. We did our engagement pictures up there and if we would have gotten married in the fall we would have had our reception up there!! It was my dream to have my wedding there but when we decided on getting married in February we had to take the weather into consideration and if people would drive that far for our reception, either way our reception was great and perfect in Salem.
Our favorite thing to do at Sundance is to go to the Deli and get a Turkey Avocado Sandwich. They are do die for. If your ever in the mood to get out for a minute we recommend going to Sundance and getting a sandwich and walking around. Well on saturday Britt wanted to take me up Provo canyon to see the leaves changing and so we decided to go to Sundance and get a sandwich and right the lift. We invited Shayla, Britt's sister to go with us. So after Britt got done painting our hallway and I got some work done we got ready and headed up the canyon.
Well when we got up there it was really busy and the lift was not going. They closed at 5 and we had missed it by only 45 minutes. So we just went and got our sandwiches and walked around. The sandwiches were to die for and I ate every bit of it. It was exactly what I had been craving.
They were having a wedding in the building I had always wanted to have mine at and it was exactly how I would have done it. It was beautiful.
I havent been feeling very well and have had a lot of work to do in the last 3 weeks so I hadnt been out of our apartment in a couple of weeks so it was the perfect place to go and get some fresh mountain air and be with my husband.

September 1st was my baby sister, Jordy's, birthday. She turned 11 and I can not believe how little she was. She weighted 3 lbs when she was born and was in NCIU for exactly one month. She was 9 weeks premature, and we almost lost my mom and Jordy. It was probably the scariest thing I had to face when I was younger.
It was really weird because this year on September first I found myself back in the ICU supporting Britt and my in-laws because Britt's grandma Sperry had open heart surgery on the 31st and she was in ICU for a few days. It was a coincidence that I was back in the ICU exactly 11 years later from the first time I had seen my sister. I hadn't been in there since Jordy was there.
For Jordy's birthday she had a swim party with her friends at my parents neighbor's house. My dad and Lyndsey had a ball game and Britt had school till 8 so it was just me and my mom and 5 little girls.
All Jordy has wanted for a long time was Roxy bedding for her bedroom. My mom didnt want to just go buy it for her so she waited for her birthday to give it to her. I think Jordy would tell you it was well worth the wait.
I think Jordy had a pretty good birthday. She got everything she had asked for and she got to spend it with her family.
We love her very much and are so thankful she survived her tough start. She has always been a little spit fire and she fought everyday for the first year of her life and I am so glad she did. She is the best baby sister anyone could have. I love her so very much!
As far as Grandma Sperry goes. She is doing GREAT!! She was home in less then a week after surgery. She is a trooper. Britt and I are so thankful to have her with us still and we are so glad our son will be able to meet Britt's grandma. We love Elma very much and are so very thankful to have her in our lives. She is an amazing woman and such a great example to everyone!

Last week we went in for my 20 week ultrasound and to find out what the baby is. It's a boy and I couldn't be more excited. Britt wanted a girl but I got my way and we are getting a BOY!!! We are going to name him Beckham Warner Sperry. Beckham after David Beckham (HAHA) jk after my Great Grandma Healey, her maiden name was Beck. Warner is my dad's middle name, and since he didnt have a boy to name after him I thought it would be nice to name his first grandson named after him. So the babies intitals will be B.W.S, and that is Britt's initials. So his name is full of meaning and I cant wait to get him here!
Over the last little bit we havent been doing much. Britt is going to school 2 full days and week and work 3 to 4 full days a week, and Im still getting use to my new job. It's been hard because Im still having all sorts of kidney stone crap. So our life has been full of doctor visits and spending money on stupid hospital bills, and school fees, but hey its our life and we wouldnt have it any other way.
