Miss Marley Anne

Miss Marley Anne Goettsche has arrived!!! I am an Aunt and David is an uncle. She graced us with her presence on December 2, 2010 at 9:35 a.m. and she weighed 8 lbs! I was able to go up to Provo this weekend and hold and love on that sweet baby. David couldn't get away from all of his engineering tests projects studying etc etc etc.. (poor guy but finals are almost here and over phhheewww) But I just love her and I am so happy for Eric and BriAnne. It's such a cool experience to grow up and watch my brother become a Dad. He was always such a good big brother.. protective, loving, and always there for me when I needed him... not to mention his relentless teasing but what else are big brothers for :) I can just tell that sweet little girl already has him wrapped around her finger. She is just perfect. I loved being up there and spending the weekend and I just miss her already!!

My mom, Marley, the PROUD dad and me

Proud Parents 

 First day home from the hospital

Grammy sees her for the first time at the Hospital!

Marley Anne Goettsche

Welcome to the world sweet girl. We love you!!!!

February 6, 2011!

So now that soccer is over I have been overwhelmed with how much spare time I have. I don't know what to do with myself! It's like the 4 hours the soccer used to take up are free and I'm completely bored. So I decided I need something competitive and athletic to fill up that space. So I've decided to do this:

And if you finish you even get one of these! 

So I'm going to get a new pair of these (they look pretty sweet and a good Christmas gift right?? hint hint David)

And I'm going to start training! So on February 6, 2011 I will be running 26.2 miles! I am excited.. I never thought I would do a full marathon but I figured what the heck might as well! Wish me luck!

The End Of A Journey

So this past weekend was my last soccer game at SUU. My parents, David's parents and David's sister Jaime and husband Christian all came up to watch and be with us. It was so fun having them there and it meant so much to me! It was definitely emotional and hard to play my last game. It's been a huge part of my life for so long and it's a big part of who I am. I am going to miss the game and the girls a ton! I definitely feel so lucky and blessed to have had the experience to play in college. I made so many memories and friends that I will never forget. Here are a few pictures from the weekend:

Now this is the law of the Jungle... (we had to memorize this poem by Rudyard Kipling and recite it before practice if coach called on us hahaha it hangs in our team room so we had to take a picture with it)

Elyse, me and Erin before the game

T BIRDS 2010! I love my teammates!

My parents and David walking me out on our senior game- it was raining and absolutely freezing!


Praying before the game

Playing for the last time.. (I had two assists.. but they took away the second one saying it was offisides- which I didn't think it was and I definitely let the ref know it :)  It's okay they were still both pretty sweet!)

This was a game I will never forget. I feel so grateful for the support of my family. I can say that my mom is my number one fan. Since I was a little girl she drove me to countless games, tournaments, practices and never complained. I think I can count on one hand the games that she has missed. My Dad has always supported me and been there when I needed to vent or needed some advice. He missed lots of work and drove lots of hours to come see me play in Cedar. He calls me his warrior :) And of course my husband for watching me for three years, putting up with the countless hours this game requires on and off the field, and listening to me tell you about ALL of it :) I love you all so much!! This journey may have ended but there is a new one just beginning and I'm ready for it!

New Addition to the Family

For all of you who saw this post title and thought baby... sorry to disapoint. But we do have a new addition to our family... meet Tux Thompson!! (short for tuxedo because it looks like he is wearing one) My trainer's husband found three kittens in the engine of his car and she brought them to practice to see if any of us wanted him... I couldn't pass him up. He is so dang cute. We are only keeping him for a few more weeks because our apartment doesn't allow pets and after we graduate we won't be able to keep him anyways. So we found him a good home with Grandma Jo and Uncle Bob come Halloween. But for now I just love this little kitty..

How could you not love this face??

Truths of Life

So I read this in an email and I thought I would share it. Some of these I think are pretty funny and so true. My personal fav's being numbers 5, 7, 15, 20, and 26. Oh the truths of life...

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. 
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
6. Was learning cursive really necessary?
7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm prettysure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
10. Bad decisions make good stories.
11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.
13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.
15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Dang it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and runaway?
16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
19. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.
20. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
21. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.
22. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
23. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
24. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent an ass from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
25. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
26. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far..
27. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
28. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my behind everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

It's been a while...

So as you can see the beautiful and talented Makell helped beautify my blog for me! She is amazing and so talented! So now I can blog again! So its been FOREVER since I posted last and a few things have happened...

We were sealed for time and eternity in the Newport Beach Temple.

Then we danced and partied at our reception. It was by far the best day of our lives! 

We left for our honeymoon.. we went on a cruise to Ensenada. It was fun to spend time together finally as husband and wife!

We got back from our honeymoon and spent our first Christmas and New Years as a married couple with our family and friends.


We went back to Cedar for Spring semester.. but it wasn't quite Spring. We enjoyed our semester of snow, school, soccer, and having our own apartment!

After Spring semester we moved back home to live with my parents. We worked, played, relaxed and enjoyed the summer! We went to some Angel games and some Dodger games where I decided that I am both an angel and dodger fan.. however 60% Angel 40% Dodger :) 

We went to weddings.. I was in weddings.. It seemed like all my friends got married this summer!

Now we are back in Cedar finishing our SENIOR YEAR! I am finishing my last season of soccer and David is busy working and going to school. David will graduate in May and I will finish up my student teaching the next fall in California. Cedar is a great place and we are enjoying all the time we have left here. It's crazy how fast time has gone!
