Our First Home!

Stephen and I bought our first home in Orem, Utah about 3 months ago and absolutely love it. It is in the perfect location and we have wonderful neighbors and the best ward! We worked hard on remodeling because it deff needed a lot of work. We installed new carpet, wood floors, and tile in the bathrooms. We painted every single wall and put up new baseboard. Although the process wasn't too much fun it was worth it and we love the outcome. My personal favorite was decorating!

The outside of the home
The Laundry room which is on the main floor next to the half bath.
The family room
The family room again
Kitchen table
Living room (My personal favorite) I had so much fun decorating my own place
Our bedroom
The bathroom for the other two rooms (I forgot to upload a pic of the master bath)
The office/craft/scrapbooking room
The guest room... which will eventually be the babies room. It is right next to our room

There it is... the Jett's home! We are so happy and feel so blessed!

Birthday FUN!

Tuesday was my 21st birthday and it was such a fun day!! Stephen spoils me like crazy on my birthday. He woke me up early Tuesday morning as he was leaving for work and told me to come downstairs for a minute because he had a surprise for me. I was half asleep but gladly followed him down the stairs. He was covering my eyes and once I opened them this is what I saw! I was sooo excited. I have wanted a mountain bike for so long and he also got a little stroller that hooks on the back wheel so once we have our baby we can go on lots of bike rides.

Then I saw the table covered with my favorite candies and two movies I love. Including the drapes my mom made for my kitchen that are adorable.

I also got a cricut expression! I have wanted one of these for so long and he found one for a great deal. It cuts all kinds of fun things... vinyl, designs, hair flowers, and scrapbook stuff.

This was the first project I did with the Cricut. I made labels for food with vinyl lettering. It is so fun to use!

Kristin did my nails for my birthday! They are so much fun to have and I love them. Instead of just white tips she did pink glitter tips. CUTE huh!

I spent some of my birthday with Dallas. He is so much fun and has quite the cute, funny, and outgoing personality! I love spending my days with him.

Stephen took me to Carrabas that night for dinner which was so delicious. It was such a fun day. Thanks for all the calls, texts, and birthday wishes from everyone! :)

One exciting/awful morning!

My morning started out like any other... woke up at 8:30, showered, ate breakfast, took the dishes out of the dishwasher, and folded some laundry before I headed to work. I had some extra time on my hands so I figured I would run to Roberts to get some Envelopes for a friends baby shower. If I went between 9:00-10:00 am I could get them for 50% off. So off to Roberts I went! As I pulled up to Roberts there was NO parking... that place was completely packed! I guess everyone was taking the opportunity to get 50% off like I was. Finally, I found a parking spot in the Chucky Cheese parking lot and headed for Roberts. I went in feeling a little overwhelmed with all the people there but couldn't resist looking at the cricut cartridges. They were half off and that is a dang good deal. I found two cartridges that I loved and got the envelopes that I needed and stood in line. I got to the line at 9:40, which means I still had 20 minutes before the sale ended. I knew I would make it, even though the line was almost near the back of the store. 15 minutes pass and I am STILL in line... I only have 5 more minutes to buy this before the 50% off ends. There were 2 people in front of me so I was feeling pretty confident until.... I started getting really hott.... and claustrophobic... and then I started getting worried... because I knew that if I left the line I would loose out on the deal but at this point I just didn't know if I could make it... something was deff wrong. A couple seconds went by as I was fanning my face with my hand and then I felt it. "Crap, I am about to throw up." (The joys of being pregnant). I was forced to leave the line and I was headed straight for the bathroom. I wasn't sure where it was, but I figured it was somewhere in the back of the store. I got half way there and by that time I started sweating profusely and had a hard time walking. I couldn't believe this was happening... in Roberts of all places! I finally make it to the bathroom and my worst nightmare comes true... IT IS A ONE PERSON BATHROOM AND IT IS LOCKED! I had no idea what to do... by this point I was down on all fours panicking because I knew this was not going to be good. A lady saw me and said, "Honey, is everything alright? Can I help you?" I couldn't even look at her.. all I said was, "I need a trashcan... I am about to throw up!" Before I knew it... i started throwing up... all over the floor in Roberts... and I didn't even care because I had no other choice. Then the embarrassment came as people gathered around trying to figure out what was going on. I felt sooo bad! The worker came to the back and I just kept apologizing... and she was so nice and told me not to worry about a thing and that they will take care of it. The saddest part was I didn't get my 50% off those amazing cricut cartridges when I was so close to being the next in line. What a bummer...
I have been pretty lucky because I haven't been very sick while being pregnant... but then there a few moments like that that just seem to top it all off. ;) I left that store wanting to ball my eyes out, I was so embarrassed. I called my Mom and told her what happened and like always she makes everything better. We just laughed together... after all laughter is the best medicine.

Hope you all enjoyed my eventful and embarrassing morning... :) I am ready to relax and take a little nap!

Our baby!

As many of you know, Stephen and I are expecting our first baby on March 10th (my dads birthday). Although it came as a bit of a surprise, we couldn't be happier and are so excited for this next step in our lives. I am almost 3 months along and doing fabulous. I haven't been very sick at all which has been such a blessing. Occasionally, I will get a little nauseous here and there but it is very manageable and easily fixed with a few crackers. :)
Yesterday Stephen and I went to the doctor for our first OB appointment. We were so excited to hear the heartbeat but had no idea we would actually be able to see the baby with an ultrasound. The doctor put that jelly stuff on my stomach and in a few seconds we saw our little baby (which is the size of a grape right now) jumping around everywhere in my belly. It was so amazing to see and at that point it became so real to me. It was such a neat feeling and I felt so much love inside for this little child. I have always known that pregnancy is a wonderful thing but you can never really understand until it is happening to you. We can't wait for our baby to join our family in 6 months!

One Year Anniversary!

On Saturday July 31st Stephen and I had our one year anniversary! It is so crazy to think that we have been married for an entire year. It has flown by and I feel like we have been blessed in so many ways this last year. We are going into our senior years at BYU, we bought a home in Orem, Utah, and I am pregnant with our first child. We couldn't be happier and are so excited about what is ahead of us. Stephen surprised me Friday night (the day before our anniversary) and took me to Salt Lake to eat a delicious dinner...just when I thought we were heading back to Provo he pulls up to Anniversary Inn to stay for the night! We stayed in the "Carriage House" and it was perfect and such a cute room. We had so much fun together and enjoyed spending Saturday doing all kinds of fun things in Salt Lake.

Anniversary Inn... It is the cutest hotel with themed rooms. We loved it!
The "Carriage House"

Complimentary sparkling cider and cheesecake

It had the coolest murals on the walls

Our bed was in a carriage...

with a built in tv...

with a sweet fireplace...

and an awesome jacuzzi...

which included a movie night with popcorn, soda, and candy

along with breakfast in bed! YUM

It was such a fun one year anniversary! It was hard to imagine loving Stephen more than I did the day I married him in the temple, but that love never seems to stop growing!
