then after 2 days of puking your guts out, fevers, hot flashes, body aches, pj's--- basically just the total craps. The day you finally feel better and decide to venture back into the world of make-up, hair spray, clean clothes (that do not have an elastic waist) and shaving. And it totally makes you feel like a million bucks!!
So CHEERS to the New Year! I think it is a good omen, especially for how big my hair is. The bigger the hair, the better year you have! --Brittney Thompson

Well anyway...the lady who was giving my manicure gave me the best compliment! Usually when I go in there I am so paranoid because they always ask me if I want a wax..pointing to my eyebrows. I in turn always tell them no not today..Like I would ever let anyone wax my eyebrows. I really try to shape them myself. Everytime they ask me this I think of the episode on friends when Joey goes to get his eyebrows waxed and it hurts him so much that he ends up having Chandler (and his delicate hands) do the other one.
Well not today...She instead told my that they were very well shaped! And then asked me who did them. I looked up with such surprise and said Loud and Proud....I do them myself. She then told me I did a very good job! So I thought I should include a picture so you all could see what I was talking about. I didn't mean for the picture to turn out so weird!

So today was Friday and I usually watch my nieces on Fridays. Well today we needed to go to Toys R Us to look for a present for someone who will rename nameless until after Dec. 16th. Anyway...We pull into the parking lot and my very very smart 6 year old niece asks...
Rorie: Brit Brit (my nickname for the day) Why are we here?
Myself: I need to look for a gift.
Rorie: (Says to her 3 year old sister Peighton) They have a lot of toys here Peighton.
We get out of car and start walking in.
Rorie: Are you going to buy us something?
Peighton: (With a huge smile on our face) Your going to buy us something?!?!
Myself: (The fastest I have ever been able to come up with something) I would love to buy you something but Santa told me not to. He was afraid that I would buy the same thing that he was planning on giving you and he would be so sad!
Rorie: Yea...That sounds right! Peighton we have to wait until after Christmas!
Now I know that it is not good to lie to your children but come one..I did a pretty good dang job! There was no begging, no arguing, no tears and no headaches. (All of which would have come from me.) I had so much fun with them! They are the two cutest little things! And sense I dont have my own kids to brag about...I get to brag about them.
Here are a couple of cute pictures I snapped during the day!

This is Zac and Megan...They are so cute!
(That is not Zac's real smile!)
When my brother and I were growing up we fought a ton! I guess like most siblings. I dont think I was very nice to him! It was hard being the only boy with two sisters. I can always count on my brother to make me laugh. He is someone you want around! He is loved by everyone who knows him. I love you Zac! I am so lucky to have you as my brother.
My Sister Megan is so beautiful! Growing up I was the one she would ask to help her with her hair for a dance. Now she is way better at that stuff then I am. You can always count on Megan for an honest opinion. I like that about her...you always know where you stand with her. What you see is what you get. Megan is very caring and would do anything for the people that she loves. I love you sister!

I learned recently that we reside in Sugarhood! We have one foot in Sugarhouse and then another foot in the Hood! I am writing this blog to vent my frustration! I love the neighborhood that we live in, the street, the cute little houses. Especially I love 500 East, that is my favorite street. Especially in the summer because it is like you are driving thru a tunnel of trees! Love!!
Well I love everything around us but.. I HATE OUR APARTMENT!! We live in a pithole! From the outside it looks like such a cute little building! And even from people that have ventured into our apartment. They would say, "What, a pithole! Are you kidding me?" And I would say, "I know it is so cute and clean and well organized, but it is a PITHOLE!" Let me list the reasons why it is such:
1. The ENOURMOUS Spiders that wait outside our bedroom door, bathroom door, front door living room..To eat us alive!
2. Our ghetto WINDOW air conditioning unit that doesn't seal all of the way and has to be taped shut!! GHETTO!
3. The half painted rooms (Because our landlord got to tired to paint the entire wall)
4. Our Painted bath tub!
5. The 30 year old bright orange carpet that leads you to our front door!
6. The pamplet our landlord gave us on instructing us to NOT eat the LEAD paint!
7. The fact that we share a water heater with our neighbors! If we flush they lose all water pressure. If they flush we are struck by freezing ice cold water. (Thats especially fun at 6:30 in the morning, or when I am shaving my legs!)
8. That none of our doors shut due to the amount of paint on the walls!
9. The amount of DIRT (NOT DUST, WAYNE) that comes out of our vents when the heat kicks on.
And last but not least......Number 10....
That I have to turn off all of the lights in our tiny apartment to BLOW DRY MY HAIR!! And if I dont, then you will have the chance to see me run out into the hall in my garments to flip the breaker! (Yes folks... I have done that!)
There you have it people....My list of why I live in a PITHOLE!
And it would not be a pithole if we did not have the worst Landlord of all time. Sure he raises our rent but does he ever do anything to fix anything...Heck No!! So Thank You Wayne..Without you we would live like Kings!

Welcome to the Brittney Pitty Party....
Well it is official!! I have the school day blues. I usually get them every semester about this time. The saddest part is...I'm not even a student. Morgan is in full school mode! He goes to work, school, work, back to school and then back to work. He comes home says hello, eats something and then it is off to the other room for homework. Last night he was up until five in the morning working on a project and then went into a sleep coma. I woke him up when I got home from church.
He told me today...I know that I am a crappy husband while I am in school, but there isn't a whole lot I can do about that.
So I feel like I am a lonely single person. I am trying to be super supportive...(Trying) being the key word here!
That is all I have to say about that! My poor husband. He is the one who deserves the pitty. But for right now...He is not invited to this pitty party. He will just have to have one himself!
I am sitting next to my husband while he continues his work on this project. Well he looked over and read what I was typing and then leaned over, kissed me on the cheek and said, "I Love You, I know this is crappy!" See I told you I was a terrible wife! He is the one doing all the work, I am complaining and he gives me sympathy! Dang... Props to Morgan James!!

On August 5, 2004 I was fortunate to marry my very best friend! On Tuesday Morg and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary. I wanted to put a picture of our wedding day on here like so many of my other friends have done....But they are no where to be found! I have a whole album and pictures hung (so if any one wants to come over) I just can not find the disks. Anyway I thought this picture would be more appropriate. Because it is more then just a funny picture! I have to explain....
One Sunday evening I was extremely bored and trying so hard to entertain myself. Well my hubby being perfectly content watching his favorite show. (Can you guess from what is on the TV behind him?) I asked him if I could play with his hair that he had been growing out. He said yes right away...So I went on to straighten to mold and shape this crazy hair do. To make it worse I snapped as many pictures as I could. See my husband is the most easy going guy...He would do anything to make me happy! Even if it is being my doll for a little while. Morgan makes me laugh harder then anyone I know. He makes me feel loved, safe and adored. I sure do love my Morgie!

Down memory Lane...I'm copying this from my cute friend Danielle! What a fun idea. Here are the directions:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

Now by that title you can only imagine that I might go into some political tangent. Well instead I am going to stand on my soap box and scream out into the world.... What the H--E--Double hockey stick happened last night?? Last night on SYTYCD--Translation on So you think you can dance, America (Not including me) voted off the best best dancer the show has ever seen! Will!! You can choose your reaction from the following...
B. Holy Crap!!
C. What the Hell? (Which was my response)
D. Who Cares! (If that is what you choose don't read my blog anymore!)
I am an avid viewer of SYTYCD and I have never ever seen a better dancer then Will. And I feel I can say this because of the following! He can dance ANY routine and he has the best little personality to boot! I am so deeply saddened by this loss! What was America thinking! I had totally picked Will as the Winner! And the other person who was in the bottom two with him was Twitch! The two best Male dancers in the bottom two!! What is wrong with the world when something like that happens. I can not believe Mark is there over Will. Give me a freaking break! The only justice in last nights episode was that Comfort went home. Give the girl a break they send her home just to bring her back and then send her home again!
Well that is my soap box for the day!
Will..Buddy...If your out there! You were robbed! You are the best dancer that show has ever seen! And you are just the cutest thing to grace my television! I heart you!!!

So this weekend Morg and I traveled down to Pallisades State Park. For those who do not know where this is...Raise your hand! Pallisades is about 10 miles south of Manti and just before you get to Sterling. Its a Great place to go to get out of all the smog. I know can you imagine there still is such a place. The campground surrounds a little lake. And for the small price of $5 you can rent a canoe and splash your way around the lake. Or in our case get out to the middle and have your husband yell back in your direction, "I am sick of the sun. Let's go back!" The poor little guy got a little sunburnt this weekend. It also has a beautiful golf course! The boys all golfed 3 times! I went out with them once just to drive the golf cart and be there caddy. And then Morg, Dad, Mom and myself went Friday night to golf the back nine. (Anyone reading this should be very impressed that I know what that means.) Mom and I teamed up... I have not laughed that much in such a long time. We started a friendly game of Polo Golf. You need to have a lot of faith in your golf cart driver. The best part is when my Mom threw herself out of the cart...Don't worry no one was harmed in the process.

So I really did not want to blog until more people had responded to my Yard Sale blog...Please everyone join the Yard Sale Extravaganza! (That is what I am calling it now) Anywho... It is 2:12 am and I once again can not sleep! Lately I have been getting into bed and have been finding myself wide awake as soon as my head hits the pillow. Poor Morg because then I just lay there and stare at him, "How can you already be asleep?" I then want to wake him up so he can be as miserable as I am. Instead I get out of bed and find myself here. And it's not like I slept all day...I had a very long day at work! And I was very tired! Please does anyone have any tips?? I am desperate. Because this is starting to a weekly thing! UPDATE.... I did not finally fall asleep until 4:20ish AM

Last night I was fortunate to get together with 3 of my former college roommates! Brittney Johnson, Jenny Nudd and Rebekah. These three girls filled up every good memory I had of SNOW COLLEGE!
Jenny... was my room roommate. She had top bunk! I knew Jenny from High School (She was the most popular girl!) I was so excited that she wanted me to be her roommate. I think I might have begged her. I remember her alarm going off at a ghastly hour and then I would hear a thug as she would throw herself to the floor. She did this daily and I don't think she was ever fully awake when this would take place. Another fond memory...Jenny would kill me if she knew I wrote this. It was Halloween or close to it. We had just come back from one of her concerts and she was wearing a black shirt with a brown (tight) leather jumper and black tights. I was upstairs when she was downstairs making out with a guy who will remain anonymous. She came upstairs hours later and her tights were completely twisted around her entire body as well as her leather jumper. Jenny you were my hero! I have always looked up to you and admired you!
Brittney Johnson... Lived upstairs with the other 7 Girls. I remember she was the last to arrive and we were all talking about her. I was so excited to meet another Brittney! She arrived and started telling us stories about Russia. I instantly was just fascinated with her. I have two favorite memorys of Brittney J. 1...When Mary and I went with you to Spansih Fork to go to your Young Women Activity. Well your little car died and your Dad came. I have never met a man that cracked me up as much as he. I think he actually bumped your car with his off the road. 2... The night you and I stayed up all night long talking on the couch. We even did finger paintings. You were the best! I felt such a kindred spirit with you! I am so happy you have come back into my life!
Bekah... Lived upstairs! I remember the first time I met you. I went upstairs and you were sitting in the chair with your curly hair with a pink ribbon in it. I thought to myself...I am going to be friends with her. I have so many memories of Snow College with you. You and I were such a duo. Some of my favorite were when we had the great idea of dumping water on Mary and Stacie as they walked up the stairs from there dates. I remember thinking that Stacie was going to kill us. I remember our film class that we had and the bright idea we had to make our film on "The Farm Boys". Do you remember going over there and waking them up. I only remember how badly it stunk. Another memory I have is when we came home for a weekend. We were driving around in my little CRV and you had been carrying around a tissue that had Kevin's cologne on it. You had it constantly pressed up to your nose. I asked if I could smell it... I smelled it and then lifted my hand through the sunroof and let go of it. I don't know why but to this day I still laugh about that.
Even though I was there for such a short time...I am filled with so many funny, great memories of Snow College. I love you three!!

If you are the type of person who is happy everyday and never experiences a bad day...then stop reading now!
My day started at 3:37 am...With the worst dream! I had tears running down my face from the fear that I had just experienced while I should be sleeping peacefully. I then woke up at 7 am feeling sad and the overwhelming feeling that said, "Brittney, Stay in bed! This is not your day!" I should have listened...Dang It!
I got to work and it started like a regular day. BUSY! Then after hitting my head not once, not twice but 5 freaking times! It was the world saying, TOLD YA SO! I then got through the first patient thinking, OK I can turn this day around. Then came our second patient. During the procedure I got dowsed with water by my un-knowing employer. You need to know that I DO NOT LIKE GET TO WET---AGAINST MY OWN WISHES! Friendships have ended because of water fights that I have be included in. Anyway... Instead of a Sorry. I got a, That was Awesome. (Wait let me get my inner ghetto girl out. ) Oh no you didn't!!
The day went on with the stupid credit union, a scary lady in my ward calling me 20 times. And just one thing after another! To end the day at work I felt a small sense of peace, No more Patients! As soon as that thought popped in my head, my co-worker, my buddy, my friend said to me, "Are you going to be pissy all week?" Damnit when did this day turn into a week! Can't a girl just get a break! Was I grumpy? Yes! Was I quiet? Yes! Did I just want to be left alone and finish the day as fast as I could? YES! As soon as that statement left her mouth I thought to myself...Holy Crap...I work with my Mom. (Love Ya CLT)
As I was driving home I got flipped off because I...Wait NO REASON! The world laughed at me today with a big fat...Listen to me next time!
I took my hubby some dinner at work and I was driving home I thought that I deserved a treat! My favorite on a bad day is a 7-11 Pepsi and popcorn. I then realized that I did not have my debit card. I looked up to the sky and said... Please Lord let me have change in my car! And there in the change holder was $1.16 in change! I looked up and said, Big Guy you always have my back!
Tomorrow is a new day... And so far the score is... World-1 Brittney-0

My day started yesterday at 3 in the morning! I woke up with the worst pain I have ever experienced in my back. I woke Morgan up about 30 minutes later when I realized this was not a muscle ache this was extreme pain internally! It scared me because I have never had anything like that happen to me. I was crying hysterical and asked Morgan to please take me to the ER. Thanks honey for running that red light and going so fast, Don't worry there were no cars on the road at that gastly hour. At least I know that one day when I am in Labor he will get me there quick! I was then seen by a Dr. then a RN who for THREE attempts tried to start an IV to give me fluids and pain meds. After the third attempt he checked with the DR. to see if they could do the CT Scan without. THANK HEAVENS!! I was afraid if he stuck me one more time I was going to stab him. Got the CT Scan (totally new experience) and it was confirmed that I had kidney stones! Gave me some pain meds and an antibiotic and sent me home to drink as much water as I could. Got home just in time to get ready for our friend Erica and Ambers wedding. I felt a little odd going to the temple on pain killers. But I was very grateful because with the help of those and my hubby I was able to make it through the whole day! Now I am packing for Florida..We leave tonight! And with a couple more kidneys stones in my kidneys still to pass...I hope those little guys wait until we are back. Special thanks to my Hubby Morgan..I love you! And to the two best neighbors we have ever had, Matt and Kelly...Love you both!!

I was reading over my last blog and realized that must have been a really bad day! Like everyone I have my ups and my downs! Do I want to have children of my own? YES! Am I impatient with the fact that it will not happen and has not happen on my time? YES! Have I turned this problem over to the Lord? NO! Not really! And do you want to know why...I am scared! I am scared that if I do hand this over to my Heavenly Father I am not brave enough for whatever the Lord has in store for me. I have seen people go through such trials. I have seen families loose people far to soon to terrible diseases. I have friends who are far stronger then I am. So when I think of those people my heart is filled with Gratitude! Thank Heavens that our Lord and Savior put people on this earth who go through things hard and terrible but strangely all at different times. When one of us is weak the other is strong! I am so richly blessed in my life! I am so thankful for my husband who doesn't know what to say but kisses me gently on the forehead and tells me it will be ok! I am thankful for my family who rally together and would do anything they could to make the people they love in there lives happy! That is what this life is about! Filling it with as much good and love as you can! And with every problem there is a solution!

Let me first start this blog by saying that I have not one intent on making anyone feel bad. I have been thinking about this a lot lately and have wanted to write about it (putting things out there in words is such therapy) but have been very hesitant because most of the people that might run across my blog are indeed in fact a part of that club.
My visiting teacher was here on Sunday and said to me that as long as we are righteous that Heavenly Father will not withhold any blessings from us. That struck a very sensitive cord for me! This coming from my very pregnant visiting teacher. She is very sweet and beautiful and has no idea that in my head I am wondering why she deserves to have a baby and I do not. I am perfectly aware that the Lord is trying to teach me something and he doesn't give us anything we can not handle. But come on... I am throwing my hands in the air!
I sit in church and look at all of the ladies my age talking with one another about how cute there babies are and what percentage in size they are and yada yada yada! I tried jumping into a conversation with two members of the club once by complimenting one of them on there new haircut. Well I was given the look! The look I have received many a time... That I don't fit into this conversation. Like heaven forbid we talk about something else.
Please believe me when I say I do not want to take away from any ones happiness I just really want some of my own. I find my self looking at other peoples blog and the pictures of there cute little families and I get so jealous! I am finding myself in a very bitter place. A place I do not want to be in. I want to be in the middle of all of the yada yada baby talk! And I swear if one more person gives me advice on how I can get pregnant I might physically loose it!
As I am writing this I am thinking about deleting it all and writing about something cheery instead. This is my very honest side! There are a lot of women out there that are going through this same thing! That is the club I am apart of! And no offense but a club I no longer want to be a member of! So to all of you women who are in the club with me...Hi my name is Brittney and I am fertility challenged!!

On Saturday while Morg was at the Priesthood session Megan and I decided to do a little project. These are Magnets that we made! They were so cheap and so much fun to make. I used the scraps from paper I had and we bought the stones, glue and magnets from Roberts. They turned out so cute! I'm glad we made them Sister!

Well this month Morg and I decided that this month we would not eat out one time!! I know some might think that is an easy thing. We on the other hand eat out all of the time. Mainly because of long days and not wanting to cook anything and the other is school schedule. And another big reason for this challenge is that it costs so much money!! We are trying to be able to live on less. So I am going to have to think of new and exciting things. Tonight I made something new and thought I would share. It was very cheap and so so easy!! I would like to call it Mexican Lasagna
This meal could easily serve 4 but could serve 6. (pending on serving size)
You will need... (Mind you I do not measure anything so just add as you would like)
9 x9 inch square pan
1-2 chicken breasts (Pending on what you want)
1 bag of shredded Mexican mix cheese (Monterrey jack and Colby)
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1/2 bottle of your favorite salsa
1/2 cup of sour cream (Again pending on what you like)
I cut all of my tortillas into strips. (Another easy tip is I buy the big bag of chicken breast from Costco and bake them chop them up and split into portions and freeze them again. Then I can just defrost and add to anything I need them for.) Mix soup, salsa and sour cream together and use as your sauce. Layer that in Pan. Add a layer of tortilla strips. Then another layer of sauce, chicken and then cheese. (I do not spare on the cheese) Then repeat and top with tortilla strips and sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 375 for one hour. At the end add a little more cheese on top and bake until cheese on top is melted. Garnish with olives, sour cream, tomatoes (Anything you would like.) I served with some rice. (My hubby loves rice!)
Super Super Easy and actually really good. Let is stand for almost 5-10 minutes so the sauce can set and it is thick when you serve it.

What can I say about our weekend??....Blah Blah Blah!
Friday...No work! I think we went to target! Saturday we went to our Niece Peighton's 3rd Birthday party! She is so stinking cute. Her sister who is 5 cut her bangs the week before. (What a nice sister.) When Rories Mom asked her why she did that, she said "I just wanted to see her face". Then Morgan and I went and saw Horton Hears a Who! That was a very cute movie! Then Sunday we went to church came home and baked. We have been baking every Sunday. I love it and its fun to have Morg in the kitchen with me. We made Banana Bread (Morgans Favorite) and the best chocolate chip cookies. That are still really soft!
For the most part it was a pretty uneventful weekend!

The best part is, I dont work on Fridays!! Morgan only worked a half day so he was home early. We went to Roberts so I could find something to create for my Easter decoration. Reason 113 Why Morgan is the best husband: because he will always go to Roberts with me without one complaint out of his mouth! (I secretly think he enjoys it) I was able to create a cute little table decoration for under 25 dollars. See Picture below....
The runner was marked down 30% off, the tin container I used the 40% off coupon. I got the eggs at 30% off. And I just filled the tin with some grass/twine stuff that was only 2 dollars! Another tip that I have is to go to Roberts right after the hoilday and you can get really great deals for next years holiday!
Later that evening we had Keily and Bryan over for some Rock Band! Had some food and Rocked Out! Then Morgan and I snuggled up and watched the Moive, King of California!
Saturday: Slept in, had a yummy breakfast! Then we went to Hale Center Theatre (We have season tickets) to see Civil War, starring Merrill Osmond! Yea Right...He didn't show up! I think they are just using his name to sale tickets! It was really good though! It is amazing what they do with there stage! I give this play 3 stars (Out of 5). Then we went and looked at a model home in Daybreak. (We like to pretend that we are ready to buy a house and have lots of money, the truth is that we are not ready for that kind of commitment!) Then to top off the evening we played some more Rock Band with Matt and Kelly! We will refer to them as Sno White and Thor (Thats there Rocker names)
Sunday: Early Church especially with the daylight savings! The best Sunday nap ever! (3 hours) then off to Aunt Kristys house for dinner. The highlight was Morgan and Megan trying to give Riley a swirlie and there rubber band war!
Well that was my weekend! To top it all of which made my Monday not so AWFUL...I got this really cute Nine West bag from TJ Maxx for only 25$.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Only 3 more work days to go!!!

This year for Valentines Day Morgan and I decided to get out of town! So we headed south! We stayed a night in St. George with Grandma and Grandpa and then headed to Las Vegas! Usually I hate Las Vegas. We usually just go for the day and end up walking up and down the dirty strip and then going back to St. George. This time Morg got us a room at Treasure Island! Our room was so so Nice. The hotel is being remodeled and we were able to stay on a floor that had been completed. The room was super swank!
While we were there we decided to live it up and go to a show. We got tickets to the "Blue Man Group". In the picture above I had just finished getting ready for the show. I couldn't get Morgs attention so I took the picture myself. I'm so clever!
The next day we ordered room service for breakfast! Very over-priced but worth it! I love ordering room service! Then we headed out for a day of shopping! We had gone to Ceaser's palace the day before and we were doing some window shopping. I found this really cute bag at the Guess store. It was $98. Which I think is way way to much to spend on a bag! Except when I am really rich. (Hey a girl can dream.) Anyway Morg wanted me to buy it. He said I never splurge on myself. Anyway we managed to get out of the store with just a shirt for him. (His point exactly) The next day we were at the fashion show mall when we saw another guess store. Morg talked me into buying the bag with a matching wallet. We walked out of the store and I had such buying remourse! We got maybe 50 feet when I turned to Morgan and begged him to take the bag back. Against his wishes he returned both items! I felt so much better. But then went on to buy a new pair of shoes, jacket and a new shirt. So I did splurge a little!
We then went back to St. George. The plan was to leave the next day but we decided we had not had enough of the warm weather. So we stayed an extra day and went to the parade of homes! Talk about Splurge I almost bought a 5.9 million dollar home! YEA RIGHT!! I have decided that People just have way to much money!

So I have been trying to think of something really great I could talk about...but I can't think of anything. So I will just touch on a few things that I have been thinking about lately! Morgan and I have been trying to have a baby for now 3 years! For the last two years I have put more pills into my body then I ever have before in the 26 years I have been alive! Anyway...Morgan and I have now saved some money and have some other money that we could go to the next step. I have the name of a lot of Drs. (Thanks to everyone who supplied me with them) its just that I am so scared! For someone who wants a baby as bad as I do, I should not be so terrified! I have lost almost all of my optimism. I am just so afraid of what he will tell me! So if someone could give me some of there brave jeans to wear for the day then I will do it! I am so thankful for this time that Morgan and I are having right now! Its Wednesday and I have until Tuesday off from work and we are both trying to think about where on earth are we going this weekend! We really need to get out of Salt Lake! So hopefully we go somewhere great and I will have something a lot better to write about on Tuesday! Hope everyone has a good long weekend with Presidents Day on Monday!

I have been trying to think of what I could say that could possibly even touch on the feelings I have for our Beloved Prophet! When my cousin Brad let me know that he had passed away on Sunday...I was kind of shocked! And then felt such a feeling of peace! I am so happy that he is once again with his sweetheart, imagine that embrace!
I remember a time when Pres. Hinckley was addressing us during conference. He had finished his talk, said Amen and went to walk away when he turned and said back to us, "I want you all to know that I love you very much." To me it was like the Lord stepped out and he stepped in and wanted to say his little part! My testimony was strengthened that day, to know that he was a true prophet!
I will honor him by teaching my primary children, my future children and all I can about what he has taught me! President Hinckely was a man who believed in our Savior and this work! He faced the world as a Representative of the Book of Mormon and he did it with such charm. No matter what faith you were, you can't help but to just love him! The Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints is the true church on this earth and President Gordon B. Hinckley is a true prophet!!

After writing my last blog all about my husband it has made me think a lot about how we came together. I want to share that with anyone who cares to read about us!
Morgan and I met when we were Sophmores in High School! When I really started to get to know Morgan was our Junior year. I was asked to homecoming by Beau Andersen. Morgan and Beau were best friends. I remember thinking to myself that I felt sorry for Morgan's date because he was not talking to her. Well there was Beau, Eric and Morgan. We became this group! Our senior year there lockers were right across from mine. I stopped to talk to them every morning. Everyday trying to convince them to skip a class and go to lunch or breakfast. Not one time did I succeed! Anyway...Graduated and its time for Beau and Eric to go on missions! At that time Morgan was a friend but I was a lot closer to Beau and Eric. They both left like 2 weeks apart from each other. Morgan was then stuck with me! That is when it began! Morgan and I did everything together. We would argue like a married couple and say to each other that we needed a two week break from each other. Then the next day one of us would call to do something! Morgan lived at my house and became very close to my family! Morgan always came to my family dinners. My Aunt Joleen once asked Morgan, "Morgan, when Beau comes home from his mission and wants to come to dinner what are we going to do?" Really meaning what are you going to do? Morgan replied, "I guess you will have to set another place." He knew he wasn't going anywhere.
Fast forward and Beau and Eric return from there missions. Morgan and I remain friends but I distance myself from Beau and Eric. Well it had been a year since we had all kind of settled into doing our own thing. This was the summer of '03. Morgan started acting really strange. The bubble that he had ALWAYS had, somehow went away! He was showing up at my work and washing my car and bringing me slurpees! It never dawned on me that he had liked me! I was going on a lot of bad dates. And after every bad date I would call Morgan and tell him all about it.
Well Morgan was showing his affection more and more.
I started to feel very un-settled in my life! Everyone told me to give Morgan a shot but it scared me to much to even think about! One night I decided to pray to my Heavenly Father asking him to help me to be happy! I didn't ask to be married or to even be in a relationship I just wanted peace in my life and to be HAPPY!
The next night I was at a friends and came home to find Morgan waiting for me. Everyone had gone to sleep and I found Morgan sitting on our couch in the dark. I sat on the couch and laid my head on his lap! I then felt so much Content! I know it sounds so cheesy but it was so overwhelming! I looked at Morgan a whole different way after that.
To sum things up the following week we went to St. George, made out on my Grandparents porch....Then were married in the Salt Lake Temple on August 5, 2004!
Posted by Brittney & Morgan at 3:02 PM
I have been tagged to brag about my other half! I am sending this out to all of my friends that have husbands or other halfs who would like to take the opportunity to brag about there husband!
My husbands name is: Morgan James Thompson
How long have you been married? It will be 4 years on August 5th
How long did you date? Well we knew each other for like 7 years before we decided to "date" we then "dated" for 6 months and were engaged for 5 months! I think out all the people I know that read my blog I "dated" my husband the longest! Geeez, if we would have just realized what our fate was earlier.....what the heck took us so long!
How old is he? He just turned 27 on December 16th
Who eats more? I would have to say Morgan does. Except he eats healthier then I do!
Who said I love you first? Morgan did! I was so mad at him and told him I thought we should break up! He then said I couldn't do that to him because of how much he loved me! I then said, You what? So yes he did say it first.
Who is smarter? Well it depends on how you look at it. Morgan is super book smart! He always tells me the most random facts that he has learned from reading CNN.com (Nerd) But I am much more Street Smart! I can pretty much talk my way out of anything!
Whose temper is worse? Morgan for sure has the bigger temper. Anybody who has ridden in the car with him would testify to that! (Danielle and Megan)
Who does the laundry? He would totally say that we both do it...but that would be a big fat lie! Morgan will sometimes put the clothes from the washer into the dryer. He also waits until I am about half way done folding until he says, Do you want me to help you? Men!!
Who does the dishes? We both share that lovely chore!
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Well if your looking at the bed then it is him but if you are actually in the bed then it is Me! I never thought I would have a side of the bed!
Who pays the bills? I don't think we get any bills, ha ha ha! Morgie does all of that! He is very responsible and brings me in the office for Thompson Family Budget meetings whenever he can. Those meeting pretty much consist of him telling me about our money situation while I read my People magazine while laying on the floor!
Who cooks dinner? Lets just say this....From the day I got married my husband has only cooked 2 meals entirely by himself! He is a very good helper though!
Who drives when you are together? Morgan for sure...He is so afraid of me falling asleep! Again Danielle and Megan could testify to that!
Who is more stubborn? We are both very very Stubborn! I am probably more then him though! He always gives in before me!
Whose parents do you see the most? I would have to say mine!
Who proposed? Morgan (Silly Question)
Who has more friends? I think we have probably the same! I would say I keep in touch with more of my friends though! Still there is no one on this earth I would rather spend my day with then Morgie!
Who has more siblings? The same! I have one brother and one sister. Morgan has two brothers. We are both the oldest in our families also!
Who wears the pants in the family? Me... I hate to say it but my husband is the most laid back person so somebody has to run the show!
Morgan James Thompson you are my very best friend! For the last 6 years you have been the person who I can always count on! I love you so much!!
