I don't know the whole story but her husband and herself got in a plane accident a little over a year ago. I remember seeing it on the news.
She has had this blog that is very well known, before her plane crash.
I have been reading it and I am SO AMAZED and MOSTLY MOVED by this beautiful woman and her family.

In the last 3 months Emberlyn has turned 1, Quinn graduated!, we've gone camping a couple of times, been to some awesome concerts, gone hiking, Ember's first time hiking too!, Jeffers and I got married, our new nephew, Emmerson was born on my Mom's birthday, August 15th and TONS TONS more stuff has happened. I'm sooo bad at this blogging thing!
The wedding went BEAUTIFUL!!!! THank you soo much to all of our wonderful family that helped out.
A special thanks to my two beautiful aunts, Debbie and Katy!
Debbie was basically my wedding planner/ designer and made this wedding the best I have ever seen! Deb Deb, thank you soooooo much for all of your time and effort it was absoulty BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Katy, you and Matt were the BEST photographers EVER! I am so in love with all of my wedding pictures!!! Thank you sooo much for all of your time and thank you for driving all the way down here and editing over 300 pictures! You guys are too sweet!!
Also, a special thank you goes out to Susie, and all of her sisters, if it wasn't for you guys I am positive that I would not have had a beautiful wedding cake, and gorgeous flowers!!!! Thank you sooooo much! It was beautiful!!!!
Lets see, Emberlyn, she is almost 14 months now and is doing AWESOME, she runs everywhere and can say Momma and Dadda really well. She can nod her head yes and no and can sometimes say yes. She also can KIND OF say my little brother's name, Dalton. She LOVES playing with Dalton, he will be 5 this month but plays with her soo awesome! Emberlyn always loves to give him hugs if she hasn't seen him in a while. She waves and is a professional at blowing kisses, SOOO CUTE! Shw has about 8 teeth and she knows where her nose, head, hair, eyes, tounge, feet, toes and fingers are! She LOVES Baby Einsteins, and Barney.
I really can't believe how blessed I am to have such an amazing angel for a daughter! She brings the biggest smile to my face EVERY SINGLE DAY!
Jeffers, he is still going strong at The Training Table. He is going to start a work out 3 times a week and wants me to do it in the morning with him.... I am NOT a morning person one bit.. He wants to wake up at 6.
6?! To some people that is not early but to me, those 2 extra hours of sleep are heaven.
So I guess I will TRY it and if I whine and cry I'm not sure how long I will last. He is being an awesome husband and and AMAZING father!
My bestest friend and cousin,Amanda, found out last Friday, well two Fridays ago that there was a tumor in her appendix they took out 2 weeks before, she had appendisitis and then they find that! So this last Wednesday they did surgery and took out some intestine. The Dr. said everything looked okay! They still have to biosipy (however you spell it) the intestine they removed to be sure BUT everything looks okay. She is hurting pretty bad and won't be back to work for a few weeks. I am sooo happy everything went okay! I love her soo much she is one of my best friends and she is family which makes it even better:) She has always been there for me and for Jeffers and Emberlyn. I am so glad she is okay! I don't know what in the world I would ever do without her! Love you Amanda!!!
For some reason it is not letting me upload any pictures SO try this!

AGH! We have gone looking for bridesmaid dress shopping and they don't make regular dresses in the color- pale pink- I want. Its like you have to go to a bridal store to get the dresses in the right color and that EXPENSIVE! We went searching and no luck. My maid of honor is gonna be 5 months prego at my wedding so we have to find her an extra forgiving dress. Sooooo that's where we are stuck now. I'm getting so stressed out about it..This is hard! It just sucks not having the funds avaliable when you need them. But the search is still on for bridemaids dresses. If we can find them in white we will dye them the color we want them!
The second sad thing, Quinn is in jail and I'm way sad about it. For one he doesn't deserve to be there AT ALL! For two if he is in there as long as he is suppose to be he won't be out for the wedding :( I feel as if he is my own little brother and I feel like a HUGE part will be missing at the wedding if he isn't there. I love Quinn and want him there when this VERY important piece of my life happens. I hope he is doing okay!
I'm having a stressful day if you can't tell lol!
Other things going on,
Jeffers got home from his backpacking trip last night and I'm soo glad he had fun :) Emberlyn and I missed him a lot! Sad thing, its Saturday and he had to go to work early at like 230 so that totally sucks! BUt thats okay
Emberlyn had her 9 month check up and here are her stats:
Okay, well I can't find the papers but I do remember some!
Weight: 19 lbs 2 oz!
Height: I THINK 28 in
I remember the is in the 70th percentile for her height and I think that is awesome!
She is soooo close to walking and she will say hi dad and she always walks along the furniture babbling and she is so fun to play with all the time!
Oh! and she got 2 pets! Well, 2 guppies- fishies! she loves to point at them and babble!
She loves to go feed the ducks with me at the park by our house!
Some of our friends, Whitney and Chris had their baby on Thursday! A little baby girl, Kandence. She sure is a cutie!
Jared is still in the hospital. They say he is moving his lips and eye lids and what not but he needs to wake up to see if his brain has healed and to determine how bad the damage is. We are praying for him! He can do it! He is a stong man!
Well that is all the blogging I am going to do for now! Thanks for listening!
Love you all! :)

Please keep him in your prayers. He is in ours.

I HAVE FOUND MY DRESS!!!
Took long enough to find it and it fits perfect! I am so happy I don't have to worry about it now! Now I need to find a place to get married... The next stressful thing! Agh! I'm thinking ceremony one place reception in another... but that might be too much work changing locations, setting up chairs, taking down chairs, etc! Soooo possibilties, Neilsens Grove, georgious, can do whatever we want, but its a park with houses surrounding it, not too cute for pictures, and unvited people could come to the park.. yuck. or we do COnrad Homestead- love it but that limits the things I would want to make becausse they provide THEIRS. so ya. I dunno. I GOTTA figure this out asap. But the only people that understand that is my maid of honor, Brandi and my grandma. I'm getting frustrated because my intermediate family thinks we can plan it later on but by the time they wanna plan it we will NOT have a PLACE to have it. Summer weddings are popular so I need to act fast! Anyway, luckly almost all of my bridesmaids said they will but their dresses, bless their hearts! Jeffers best man will rent his tux bless his heart as well! I'm sooo hoping I can have dancing at my wedding, I want it to be a fun filled night! Not boring for me and Jeffers, I want it to be a night to remember! FOREVER!!!
I hope I can pull this off on a VERY tight budget!

Anyway, so I'm trying to find a place.
Shoot me now.
Every place I want is WAY too expensive! So then I start thinking oh I will make it small and not a huge deal, but everytime I picture my wedding it is elegant, in the woods, in a strapless ivory dress, almost antique style, pale pink, off white, and ivory, wavy hair maybe half up and half down, longer than it is now and blonde, blonde, blonde.
Now I gotta make this happen on a budget AND plan every detail I never pictured in my wedding fantasy.
I plan on getting married only ONCE. Divorce is great for some people but its not happening for me. I've always wanted to marry the person i KNOW FOR A FACT I will be with forever. No wonder we take things slow, especially for Utah.
I know Jeffers is the one for me. For some weird reason I've kinda known since the day I met him. Not like the day we met I knew he was the one, but he was different- more different than anyone I had ever met or dated. Treated me different, in a VERY good way. HE is my opposite in the best way possible. Yeah we have def had our times but I think he is the one I am suppose to be with. FOREVER.
Okay back to the wedding.
I NEED to find a place ASAP!!! My grandma, sister, Lexie, Emberlyn, and I all went looking at some of ehr friends backyards today. I think they are too small. Maybe, maybe not. But I gotta figure this out soon! I don't want in the valley, our wedding WILL be outdoors and its gotta be close to a mountain.
My best friend whom I am going to ask to be my Maid of Honor, or what is it? Matron of Honor if they are married.
Brandi, she will be that if she accepts. This girl is awesome. I texted her and told her I wanted to go look at dresses while she was at work. The woman called me after work and said, are we still going. i was like heck yes.
So I thought we were going to just go LOOK at some dresses.
I called her to find a meeting place and the woman had called Davids bridal and MADE us an appointment!!!
I was speechless!
This awesome girl went out of her way to make me an appointment- just for me- to look at MY selection of wedding dresses!
Okay- NO ONE HAS DONE SOME THING TO HELP ME OUT LIKE THIS YET.
It almost puts me in tears because of how awesome this girl is!
SO, the girl at Davids Bridal SUCKED! She had like 1 to 2 appointments ALONG with ours. Brandi was helping me in and out of the dresses. We had tried on like 4 before she even came and talked to us. I'm disappointed with their service. They should have been paying Brandi for that 2 hrs we were in there. She DID EVERYTHING!
I have a feeling its gonna be a while before I find THE DRESS. They were pretty but wasn't digginf any of them a lot. I REALLY like the color Ivory I want my dress in that color FOR SURE!
Well Brandi and I and hopefully my little sister, Lexie, will be able to go dress shopping in SLC on a SAturday.
As for a location. HELP!
I gotta find it asap or July 25th isn't gonna happen!
