Lucille 2

So remember how Buster was dating Lucille 2 and she had vertigo? I KNOW HOW SHE FEELS! I woke up this morning with a stiff neck and a serious case of the dizzy spells. I thought it was something only old people got? Ughhhhhhh. The room is spinning and I cant walk without holding on to stuff.

Any of you experience the same thing? I am going to the chiropractor in the morning hoping he can adjust me back to normal. But if you have any further advice of how to make this crap go away I would love to know!

Merry Christmas from the Widdisons

Merry Christmas Eve! Feast your eyes on our very first tree. Tiny and adorable.
I gave Jason the privilege this year to pick out our very first ornament as a married couple. Look what he picked: What a nerd.

My chicken nugget

No words can express the amount of heartache I feel when I think about this little girl below. I thought that it wouldn't be too hard leaving Utah (and her) and starting a new life here in Washington. This my friends is not the case. I was with Danni since the very beginning. Literally. I was in the delivery room when she was born and was with her every day since for 3 and a half years. This child stole my heart. Don't get me wrong I miss the other 4 kids dearly, but the special relationship I had with Danni is something so unique, precious and irreplaceable. I get teary eyed now when I think of her and sometimes its a struggle to hold back my tears. Not a day goes by that I don't think of little Danni. Luckily we're able to video chat via the 4G iphone :) (Thanks Jason and Bunney for having awesome phones) My heart fills with joy when I hear her voice and see that cute little face!

Let me tell you, being a nanny may be one of the most rewarding jobs but be fore warned, it will tare your heart out come the day you have to move away and say goodbye.

Wahdoo so much my little chicken nugget.

"wahdoo"-the way Danni use to say "love you" when she was learning her words. <3

Manito Gardens

Friday night was date night! Jason and I along with some friends we've made here in Spokane went and enjoyed the Manito Garden light show. It was pretty much a green house with lights draped around the plants. ha. It was a little silly but hey, we're still figuring out things to do here in Washington. We ended up having a great time with great company!

Please enjoy our iphone pictures. I don't know why I'm so anti-camera lately. We've been married almost 2 months and I haven't documented anything! I think I just figured out my New Years resolution. :)

Could you do it?

Could you cut your own arm off to survive? I've given this lots of thought and sadly I've concluded I could not. I'm a wimp. I might attempt but could never follow through.

However Aron Ralston did. This movie was beautiful. I was in awe by this man and the courage he had to survive. It you haven't seen it I suggest you do!

It's you...

It's always been you.

The Girls

36DD.'re welcome. ;)

A few things

I started The Hunger Games two days ago. Done. Loved it. Good thing I didn't start reading the series until after all three books came out. I absolutely hate waiting! I am the most impatient person I know. Tomorrow I head to Utah for a week to take care of the kids I use to nanny one last time while their parents are out of the country. Jason will be left here to survive on pizza rolls and frozen burritos. I was suppose to prepare meals wasn't I? Whoops. Still learning all the wifey duties. ;)

I found my car buried in leaves this morning. There isn't an inch of ground that isn't covered. I love Fall!
Here's a sneak peak of my bedding which I am in LOVE with. I will post pictures of the whole place once she's all done and decorated. I have one room left the finish, and it's obvi this one. ha. Any suggestions on what to do with those white walls?

Friday, November 5, 2010

I'm back...

Macsies has been fixed! I've renamed her CHEW in honor of the angel's who fixed her. You know who you are. And I love you. <3

I've got a lot to make up in bloggingland. Get ready.

I'm really gonna miss living with this girl right here. Like a lot.


It's 4:56am and I am certainly not getting up early.

I can't sleep. I don't think I've slept a wink all night.

My mind won't shut off and I'm starting to feel a bit of anxiety about all the wedding shennanigans.

It's so bad, I had to remove myself from my bed and quit trying because my own thoughts were starting to drive me mad.

Any suggestions married friends? We're down to 1 week and I'm dying for some sleep.

Halloween Idea

I have this great idea for Jason and I to be Wayne and Garth for Halloween. We'll be in Spokane and fingers crossed we have some killer Gonzaga parties to attend.

Wedding wedding and more wedding!

Welcome to wedding central! I've been home for a week and I have been VERY busy. Here's a few pictures that will help you see why:
This is my bedroom. My mom waited until I got here to inform me that I am room-less. That's right. I am continuing to live out of a suitcase and was given the option to sleep on the couch or bunk with Connie. Conj has been nice enough to let me share her bed. Love that girl. (If you haven't heard, Jason's sister Connie moved to AZ and is staying with my parents for a while.) It's pretty awesome. I love love love having her here. Anyways, back to my room. Here is the China that we've been collecting. The idea is to have mix-matched plates on all the tables.

Here is the plethora of vases we've been collecting for the tables. They are so pretty and will be perfect for what we are planning to do!

Isn't this gazebo gorgeous?! My parents just had it built in the backyard. After the temple sealing we are having a ring exchange before the reception. (I have more family that aren't members of the church then that just seems right to have something for them to be apart of.) Under this gazebo is where it will take sunset. So dreamy...

Here's the awesome chandelier that hangs inside. Gorgeous! We have lots of chandeliers that will be hanging under different things in our yard. This was my mom's idea and I think its perfect.

My mom is a total nut and decided to build all the tables for the yard! (and by nut, I mean totally awesome. That woman is amazing and can do anything. I am so lucky to have her help me with all my crazy ideas. My mom rules) These are the table legs that just got stained.

And here are the table tops! We spent hours gluing is the hot AZ sun but it was totally worth it. They turned out gorgeous.

See?!? It's beautiful! Isn't my mom the greatest?

Here's Connie doing her favorite thing since moving to Arizona. She has been so willing to help with all the wedding craziness, but when we have some down time, by the pool is where she can be found. She is turning into quite the bronze goddess.

And last but not least, here is a funny picture that I cropped of Jason's hair. Conan O'brien look alike, maybe???
ha ha. Love you Jase!

So there is my first week at home is a series of iphone pictures! Time is flying. Only 25 more days till the wedding! (and 23 days till I see Jason <3 )

Life Update

Remember Me?

I hardly remember how to work computers anymore now that I'm with out. I'm currently blogging on my boss's PC...definitely a switch from my beloved mac!

So here's a short update-

1. I have 9 days left in Utah. It's gonna to be a bittersweet goodbye. Especially when I leave my sweet little Danni. (Seriously it's gonna rip my heart out.)

2. My dress is currently being altered and I pick it up next week! Wait till I post pictures. It's amazingggggg.

3. I get married in 43 days! Yipee! Thank goodness for my countdown app on my iphone. (It goes a little slow for my liking though. :)

4. I haven't see Jason in almost 3 weeks nor will I till we say "I do". :( It's been hard, but time is actually going a lot faster then I thought. We talk every night which is so so wonderful (even though Jason HATES talking on the phone, he's a good sport and does it for me.) He is loving law school and seriously kicking butt. I am so incredibly proud of him.

5. We just booked our hotel room and airplane tickets for HAWAII in December! Woot! I can't wait.

Overall, things are going pretty great in my neck of the woods. I'm embarking on a lot of change that is coming upon me far too fast but I'm ecstatic about all of it! Once I get to AZ, it will be easier for me to blog on my mom's computer. So be patient, I promise to have far more interesting posts coming real soon!

Bye Bye Macsies

Once upon a time I had a mac. It was a really beautiful one at that. It was the first "big girl" purchase I made. I saved up, designed one specific for me, and purchased it with my own moneyz.

Sadly, it has met its demise. :(

I was doing homework at work on Tuesday. I walked away from my computer for 5 minutes and the stupid cat knocked over a glass of water all over my open laptop.

It's fried. Gone baby gone.

I cried for a good two hours after this tragedy. Luckily though, I was able to retrieve all my documents off it. (pictures, music, the 10 page paper that I was working on moments before the accident...) The computer itself though? All gone. No more. byebye.

I know I've been a terrible blogger lately due to school, work and planning a wedding but my blogging life may become even more non existent until I am able to replace my precious macintosh.

If you know anyone giving away free Mac's, lemme know k? Cuz getting married is EX-PEN-SIVE. Right now couches, dressers, tables and chairs are priority over buying a new computer.

Hmph. I feeling liking pouting all over again.

They are done. They are fabulous. I couldn't be more happy with them!

Check them out here. <-----------Hurry up, click it!

My aunt is a photographer and came up to Utah from Arizona to take our pictures. She did an AMAZING job. If you are looking for a photographer I suggest you use her. She is awesome. <3

Bridal Shower!

This weekend I came home for my bridal shower! Rachel and Brynn are amazing and threw together such a fun night! It was so wonderful to see all of my girlfriends again. There was a fabulous crepe bar, fun games, and great company to make for one amazing evening.

I felt so loved. Thank you so much for everyone that came and for showering me with gifts! I love you all. Thank you thank you thank you!

Shopping Fail

If you haven't ever visited, I suggest you do. I get my daily dose of laughter from this website.

Here's a little taste of what fail blog includes-

Sir, I feel the exact same way sometimes.

I'm really looking forward to calling this bombshell my sister.

We're moving to Washington!

Spokane to be exact.

Jason was accepted to Gonzaga Law School and will be starting this fall! We found the cutest little condo that I will happily call home for the next few years. The plan so far is for him to move out there in August, start school, fly to Arizona for the weekend to get married, then be back to school by Monday with his new beautiful bride. It's going to be a fast, stressful weekend but luckily we've already decided to take a two week tropical honeymoon over Christmas to make up for no honeymoon in October.

That's not even the best part. Jason is going to apply for a study abroad in Italy next summer! WOOT! The course is only a month long, but we've decided to stay for an extra few weeks and travel around Europe. I'm finally going to be kissed on top of the Eiffel Tower!

This marriage this is working out pretty great so far, and we're not even married yet.

...Katie Widdison....I like how that sounds.

I am not a pet person. Not even a little bit. I hope to never own a dog, cat or even a fish. I don't like animals that shed, smell, or poop in the house. I hope that doesn't make me sound too cruel. I do like animals in general. I probably have even pet your dog or let your cat sit on my lap. I just plan on never being a pet owner. (Luckily Jason is right on board with me here. Hooray for allergies!)

If I was forced to own an animal, the only ones I would choose would be a giraffe, elephant or a dolphin. :) ha. I love exotic animals mostly because you admire them from a distance.
So. If I ever inherit a large sum of money, I may just buy an elephant so I can take a picture as adorable as the one above.

Polar Opposites

How ironic is it that I received this shirt in the mail and purchased this dress on the very same day? Ha. The first was purchased mostly for Jason, but I plan on wearing it a time or two this summer. And how 'bout that dress? It was love at first sight. The second I tried it on, I instantly knew it was the one. I'll have to do a few alterations to make it garment ready but my goal is to keep it as true as I can to the original.

Truth be told, I'm pretty excited to wear both. ;)
Happy Monday!

Sunday Obsession

I recently purchased this necklace at the Busy Biddy (located on 1600 N in Orem). Isn't it amazing?!? It's my first time sporting it and I'm mildly in love.

Thursday, June 3, 2010


If you want to see the SECOND (mine being the first) cutest proposal of all time, click here.

I may or may not have just laughed and cried at the same time. Loves it.

3. It's the magic number.

Can I just tell you how much math is taking over my life right now? Seriously. I have this week off from work and guess where I've been? In the math lab. Every single day-All. Day. Long. Ughhhhhhh. Taking this math course really has done me in. I have no time for anything important (like planning my wedding.) Luckily tomorrow I'm taking a break from algebraic expressions and logarithms and will be trying on wedding dresses with my BFF slash cousin Amie in Salt Lake City. I couldn't be more excited!

But for now, I'm headed back to the math lab. First stop though-I'm getting one of these:

It's my newest obsession.

The Story.

For the past few weeks, Jason has been talking about going hiking. This past Saturday was the day! (Unknowing to me that he was going to propose.) He told me the night before that some friends were coming with so getting engaged didn't even cross my mind. I was kinda bummed because I secretly wanted him to propose before my birthday and this was the last weekend before it. At this point, I wasn't too hopeful that it would happen.

Jason woke me up bright and early on Saturday morning. 6 am to be exact. He told me that Marshall got called in to work the lunch shift so him and Beth wouldn't be able to make it. I totally believed him! We drove up to the base of of Squaw Peak and began our climb to the very tip top. Important things to know-Jason LOVES hiking. He doesn't enjoy any other physical activity except that. Me on the other hand, make me run 10 miles and I'll do it in a heartbeat, but make me climb a mountain up hill... not my favorite activity. I was a good sport for about the first hour and a half of the hike, mostly because I didn't know what I had gotten myself into. When Jason informed me that we still had two hours (after the first hour and a half) to go, I was not a happy camper...or hiker in this case. I complained for the next hour. No joke. I was the biggest baby. Jason was so kind though and reassured me that we were, "almost to the top". I decided after a good amount of complaining that I wasn't going to win so I better just suck it up because at this point we were not turning around.

The hike went from being steep, to steep and muddy, and then to steep and snowy. I couldn't believe that he still wanted to get to the top! At this point I changed my attitude and tried to just make happy conversation....even though my feet were frozen and I wasn't really having any fun.

After almost 4 hours of climbing uphill we made it to the top! It was gorgeous. I really had never seen anything so beautiful. I went and sat on the edge to rest and enjoy the view. OH! I forgot to mention that Jason carried a 2o pound pack back the whole time filled with snacks, water, his camera AND his tri-pod. Crazy. After about 5 minutes, Jason called for me to come back up to where he was.

He held me in his arms and told me how much he loved me. He told me that this hike could easily compare to relationships. He said that they can be hard at times and you may want to quit, but once you get to the top it's so worth it. Next, he grabs a little box out of his pocket, gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him!

I was stunned. I couldn't hold back the tears. Never in my entire life had a moment ever felt so perfect. Here I was, standing on top of a mountain with the man I loved, who, from this moment on was going to be the person I shared the rest of my life with. I can't express to you the intense confirmation I received at that very moment that THIS was right.

So, there it is! Our engagement story. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with my very best friend.

Jason. I love you past the stars and the moon!
