Time for Thanks

Yes its the typical Thankful post, but I'm going to do it anyways :)

I Oriana Elise de Hoyos Taylor am thankful for:

  • Travis Allen Taylor, for all that he does for our family and all that he continues to do he is honestly the hardest working person i know.

  • My animals Rue, Koda, and little Neytiri, thankful for them and reminding us that life is to be enjoyed. They are there to always love you no matter what happens.

  • Family, both Travis and my families. They are always there to listen and help in anyway that they can.

  • Friends, without them life would be dull we love all of our Friends so much and are glad we have memories with you, you know who you are.

  • 2 Cars, thankful for the warm safe drive to wherever we may need to go

  • Jobs, keep us busy, responsible and financially stable.

  • Our very own Home, to keep us warm and dry and make our own

  • Running water

  • Heaters/Air conditioning

  • Grocery stores

  • Entertainment

  • Electricity

  • Faith and the Gospel, if i didn't have those in my life i would have fallen into a pit of despair anytime something hard came my way.

  • personalities, they make life fun

  • Travis Allen Taylor for always being my prince charming, my shoulder to cry on, my better half.

  • Washer and Dryer, so thankful for those they are life savers.

  • Babies, Kiddos, Little Munchkins, life would be unbearable if we didn't have these little Sunshine's running around everywhere

  • Good health, hearing and eye sight. we often take those for granted when we should be thankful for them everyday

  • Thankful for Doctors and medicine, without them i would have never found my Prince

  • Thankful for Love, Laughter and happily ever after.

I'm sure that there is so much more that i haven't put on here that i should. But these are all the ones that came to my mind just now, i am so Thankful for everything that has ever happened in my life and for all those who have been in my life.

New love songs

I have found 2 new love songs that I LOVE!!! We all know that my most favorite is and always will be Priscilla Ahns, Dream. But i have found 2 new ones that are right up there with it.

Lady Antebellum, Just a kiss goodnight

and Christina Perri's, A Thousand Years

YouTube isn't working at work right now so you will just have to look them up yourself if you don't already know the songs. I love them, and i love waking up to them in the morning it makes my days so much better to wake up to those songs.

Anyways not much happening in our lives right now besides work. We found out that with Travis new job he no longer has Heath Insurance at least for the next 4 Months, the only reason we are waiting for Travis heath Ins is because his company will pay his benefits completely!!! That's a great deal! So with our luck we are hoping and praying nothing serious happens in the next 4 months that we would need Ins. for. Cross our fingers, knock on wood. I think we will be fine, we haven't needed to use our Ins for at least 6 months.

So other than that, not a whole lot going on, I'm sure with Thanksgiving coming next week there will be a thankful post and then pictures too. But for now this is it!

New Job!!

I would just like to say Congratulations to my amazing husband Travis!!! He is no longer working at a company that under appreciates, abuses, and takes him for granted! He is done with being the Warehouse Manager at R C Willey.

Let me just say how excited i am to have us both out of working retail!!! now we get the same days off every weekend and holidays!!! Words cannot express how happy we are about all of this! His new job is working at his friends dads company FSI ( Foundations Systems Inc.) This is all thanks to great friends! For Travis birthday my best friend Leah and her hubby Andrew came with us to Sushi for his birthday, (Travis loves himself some sushi :) ) when we were sitting there at dinner we got to talking about all the stupid stuff that happens at Travis job and how they treated him because of his age and what not. Then Andrew remembered his dad was hiring. Travis had the interview Tuesday and started Wednesday. Thank you Andrew and Leah for helping us get out of RC Willey. We are so excited.

On other news i would like to say that my hair is no longer mullet looking anymore! :) yay i cut myself some front bangs and we have a love hate relationship, but the nice thing is that i can do so much with them that it doesn't matter. i will post a pic of my growing hair soon.

Also.... last night we ran to Wal- Mart to grab just a few things and of course we always go back to the movies to just look well we couldn't just look when we saw all of the Harry Potter movies there for 3.96 EACH!!! we got all but the very last one for under $30... i thought for sure we werent going to get all of them for less than $100. Ha it just goes to show that sometimes Wal-Mart really is great! Im also liking their new Bella Bird clothing line, its nothing amazing but its nice for Wal-Mart.

Well that's all for now, sorry there were no pictures i do have a few from Travis birthday ill have to try and post those soon. Bye now!

Best day of my life May 2, 2009

Love of my life. hahah he swore he would never like cats, and now we have 2 that he loves!!!

i love that he is athletic and competitive.

our honeymoon in Hawaii

playing rockband!

Oh my dear sweet Travis Allen Taylor, Today you turned 24!! This boy is not a boy he is a man, and what an amazing one at that. He is so funny too he keeps saying, "Ya next year when i turn 25 ill get a discount on my car insurance!" what a goof ball. I love him so much. Travis is such an amazing person, he is always worried about others and is always willing to take care of them and help them out in any way he can. Anytime someone calls him up for help he is there! Travis would do anything to provide for our small family and he is such a hard worker. I am so blessed to have been able to know him and then marry him. Many may not know our story so now is as good a time to tell it.

about 4 years ago my oldest Sister and her family moved to West Virginia for her husband to go to medical school. While living there, a missionary named Elder Taylor was in that area/ward and got to know my sister and her family well. One day while at my sisters house elder Taylor's companion saw me in our family picture and asked if he could write me. My sister looked at him and said, "No your not her type, but you are elder Taylor, you should write her." Elder Taylor said no i gotta keep focused and not be distracted.

Well after about 2 weeks of my sister bothering Elder Taylor to write her sister he finally caved.

I was a Senior in High School, my sister called me up one day and asked if id like to write a cute missionary, i thought that's kinda weird but ok sure.

Long story short we wrote for 18 months and fell in love, we knew most everything about each other over our letters of writing.

Once he got home from his mission Travis moved in with his sister who lived very close to my parents house. we dated for 3 weeks got engaged, then were married 4 months later in the Mount Timpanogos Temple.

People who didn't know we hadn't been writing for so long thought we were stupid and young to rush into a marriage when we hardly new each other, little did they know we knew each other very well. I love Travis so much more than ive ever loved anything. He is my whole life, and im so grateful for his choices in life, and im so grateful that he was able to beat his cancer and survive so that he could go on a mission and we could meet and get married. He is such a special person and i feel so honored to be in his life. Thank you babe for all that you do and continue to do.

I love you and hope that you have an amazing birthday!
