How SWEET it is!

This past weekend was like Christmas+Birthday+Christmas for Nick
because of this kid
and BYU making it into the SWEET 16!
at the Whiting house.
Last week was Spring Break the start of MARCH MADNESS and we celebrated our anniversary (Nick assures me that is what really made this weekend the best ever.......right)
 Nick played a little ball back in his younger years. 
Yep, that's my stud muffin. After his mission he played ball for CEU and then was recruited to play for Cal State.  Needless to say, Nick is a bit of a college basketball fan and it's rubbing off on me :)  I even filled out a bracket this year, the first time in my entire life. The madness is in full force at our house.  The question: 
Can BYU pull off a win against Florida? 
Who's bracket will emerge victorious?
Stay tuned....

2 years down and an ETERNITY to GO!

MARCH 14 2009
Nick is my best friend and the perfect husband for me.  I'm so incredibly grateful for our eternal marriage and the blessing that it has been in my life. Together we've laughed and cried.  We have been trying to get pregnant for a while and enduring this trial has been really really really hard.  Infertility is not something we ever saw coming in our "happily ever after".  Nick has been my support and strength as I have struggled with this trial, his testimony and faith gives me peace and hope.   I have realized how much Nick and I are meant for each other.  Even though I don't understand why Heavenly Father has given me this burden, I am grateful that He has given me someone to help me carry it.  I'm also grateful for the "tender mercies" the Lord has put in my path that have helped me get through those tough days.
Nick, I love you and I know that together we can get through ANYTHING!

High Rollers

Nick's sister invited us to the Jazz game last night.  Her in-laws have AWESOME season tickets. We got to sit court side for the entire game-SWEET!  My Mom and sister kept texting me that they could see us on TV.  It was a really good game and we had a blast, sadly though the Jazz lost by 2 :(    7 game loosing streak AT HOME! C'MON!  
$1800 for a game-pish
We roll like that :)
 We had a semi-obstructed view
 Nick got to hold the ball during one of the time outs 
then had to give it back to Andrei Kirilenko
See that big gash over his eye?
city league basketball game got a little intense the night before
Good thing he married a nurse :)
 Denver's Bird man, he a freak of nature
It's been a less than stellar year for Utah sports.  Nick's been having a rough time, he was super grumpy Tuesday night when he found out Brandon Davies got kicked off BYU's basketball team.  Our first born will no longer be name Deron but Jimmer is in the running :)
