Seuss and Dancing

So here is the newest show we just got done with. We got to read a bunch of different Dr. Seuss stories and act them out. I know, doesn't sound like much, but it was fun. We used lots of squirt guns and bubble machines. When in doubt, douse the audience with bubbles! Makes everything better!

After Company last night, some of the girls went dancing. Now they do this frequently but I don't ever join them because of the fact that I like to go home and sleep. However, last night I went and just danced for 2 hours. I was VERY sweaty. It was sooo much fun. The girls helped me watch out for slimy guys who want to get close. EEWW! We had so much though. Lots of dancing all night long!

Dates, Company, and the Three Bears

So, Adam and I finally had a date. We got a gift certificate to Ruth's Chris and had a whole night together. We walked along the river, ate amazingly good steak, and had some great ice cream. It was so nice to be able to be together. I mean, we work together and everything, but we don't really get to talk and communicate. It was so fun!!!
This is a picture of my little friends from Company. We all get to be together in Dressing Room 4. In this picture is me (April), Maria who plays Susan, Michelle who plays Marta, and Kristen who plays Kathy. Hello Gorgeous!
This final one is of Three Bears. It is the previous Children's Show that we did. Yes, that is Papa Bear (Chris), Baby Bear (Shelly), and Mama Bear (Me). We have such a blast being silly and having fun.

Yes's and No's

Sorry I have not updated for a while. We have, like everyone else, been crazy busy these past couple of weeks. Right now I am breathing in and out and being grateful for a little rest. As I sit here thinking about everything going on in our life right now, I am again amazed at how the Lord guides and directs us.

For those of you who don't know, Adam and I will have been married for 3 years next month. (Can you believe that Dad? Time sure does fly!) We have been so blessed to have each other and are loving the fact that we get to be together forever. For the past year or so we have been trying to get pregnant. (Lisa, remember you and me walking around NY talking about how frustrating it was to not be able to concieve? Good times!) I have gone to several appointments and my doctor is working with me on some things. We have also been trying to purchase our first home. We found out today that the answer is no. We will find out on March 18th why we haven't been able to have a baby yet. We keep getting no answers to things Adam and I want so badly right now. We wanted a home for our baby. We don't get either right now.

I know this seems like it is a depressing "whoa is me entry", but it's not. As we are getting all of these answers I feel this amazing amount of peace in my heart. I am reminded that Heavenly Father has a plan for Adam and I. We have felt so strongly that we need to continue on in the theater and acting. We have been able to secure jobs that pay us well and only have to do with acting. We are able to spend time with Adam's family and the possibility of maybe spending some much needed time with mine as well. We are able to participate in our ward and our choir. We have been able to start a FHE with some non members from our theater. We are able to be 100% debt free and have a six month supply of emergency funds.

I guess today I am feeling extremely grateful that Heavenly Father is at the head of our life. That even though I am getting a bunch of "No's" I have so many "Yes's" to be grateful for! One of the great yes's is all of the support we get from our friends and family. Thank you for being such a blessing in our lives! We love you all soooo much!
