Woohoo. Yippidty doo. Yeehaw.

I'm 21. :)

Zac was so cute about it, he made me consent to the "3 days of Amy's birthday" which means I got presents Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. He did pretty well with gifts even though the worrier in me kept thinking "Oh no, Christmas is so soon and we need to save money to buy stuff for other people!" but I'm so glad Zac loves me so much.

On Monday night we went to sleep fairly early but early the next morning Zac kept waking up and rolling over and going "Happy Birthday, wife" in his sleep. Gosh I love him.

The day was great, and really relaxing. I went to work early at the portrait studio but when I called the restaurant to see what time I had to be there they surprised me and told me I didn't have to even go in! So I spent the day snuggling my husband, getting my nails done, and eating. Basically the best.

This picture is just a little taste of Zac's mad wrapping skills. Or would it be skillz in this case?
My pumpkin spice cupcake. There is nothing better than cupcakes. Truly.

puzzle pieces.

You know what I love?

(I'll just pretend you answered with "what?")

I love discovering little things that make me feel like puzzle pieces of myself are sliding into place. While I was home for Thanksgiving Zac and I went to visit my Grandma Shirley and Kylee and I decided to go through some old photos. While we were digging through years of snap shots I started to feel closer and closer to my Grandpa George, who passed away when I was 8. Below are some of the Polaroids that were stashed away in the box. There was a spark. A connection. I know why I am so utterly obsessed with Polaroid pictures. They were my grandpa's favorite. I have his old camera and if I had more mula, I'd be snapping millions of Polaroids of every little thing. Just like him. Just look and admire; the vintage quality, the colors, the feeling that he just wanted to capture even small things, like the way the kitchen wall looks or a family trip to Yellowstone. Love in every shot.

(I apologize for the pictures of pictures, especially from my phone.)

So yesterday I got up and actually curled my hair which was a nice change from the ponytails I usually have in for work all week.

Thinking it looked pretty nice I asked Zac if he likes my hair curly and you know what he said?

"I like it when it looks like you just got out of the shower"

Well, at least I know he's easy to please. But maybe next time I should ask before I spend 45 minutes curling my hair.

Responsibility. and Junk.

This may be kind of a rant, but I feel like I need to get it all out.

So Christmas is coming up right around the corner and my work is getting pretty busy with all the families coming in to get photos. Everyone was doing alright until last Friday when out of nowhere one of the guys just left to go get something and never came back. And that is how he quit. Sometimes I just want to scream when people do dumb stuff like that. I mean, were they raised to think that that is acceptable behavior at a JOB? Did they think that was the easy way out? Was he just scared of what we would say? I simply cannot understand how that seems alright to someone. I was brought up to believe in a hard work ethic and good old fashioned responsibility. If you say you'll stick with something then you do it. Simple as that. Why is it now the exception to be a good employee and not the rule? AGGGHHH!

Ok, that's it. Rant's over.

But for real, just be a good person.

Also PS, today I'm thankful for my job. Even if I want to yell sometimes.

One more PS, go look at these clippies. They made my day.

Today I'm grateful for Mondays.

While everyone else might hate this day of the week I love it because it's my day off. I get so much done! Today I've done all the dishes, cleaned the kitchen and bathroom, and done some laundry! It always feels good to have a clean house.

On another note, this weekend was a blast. Zac invited one of the guys that works for him over for dinner and him and his cute wife are fantastic! I love finding new couple friends and being able to just have dinner and game nights. They even invited us over last night and cooked for us! The original reason for us to go over there though was for Zac and Cameron to play xbox together. Zac was in HEAVEN! He hasn't had his for three months now and it was cute to see how excited he got to go play. What's funny is that Cameron and Cheryl have only been married for three months so me and Zac are the old married couple! Haha!

Yesterday I was thankful for:

My mama!
I love my mom so stinkin' much! She's the epitome of an independent woman and probably one of the strongest women I've ever met. She is fun sized and adorable. She's a yogi nerd and a Bob Marley freak. She is smart and hilarious. How could you not just love her?

Today I am thankful for:

A lot of people. Veterans. But most importantly, my grandpa Halpin, my Uncle Kurt, my brother-in-law Michael, and my close friends, Wade, KC, and Nick. I am a patriotic nut (something I can thank my Grandpa Jack for) and holidays that celebrate our armed forces make me a little bit weepy and emotional. I love our country and I love my freedom, how can I not be so grateful to the men and women who fight and risk their lives for both of those things? So to those that serve our country, thank you.

Monday, November 8, 2010

I am 6 days behind. Oops. So I will be thankful for 6 things today :)

I am grateful for...

1. Our health
Even though Zac is feeling sickly today I'm grateful that we're both young, strong, and able!

2. Our families
They are pretty awesome.

3. Ashley Lynn Hanson.
Enough said.

4. Our cute little home.
It is warm, quaint, and adorable.

5. Hot chocolate
It warms me up on days like this. Brrr.

6. The Hunger Games books.
Yes, I am a nerd. But I love these books! I JUST started the third one today and I'm sad they're almost over!

a month of being thankful.

Holy cow, it's November! This year has gone by so fast but it's been a truly magnificent one. This month I am going to make an effort to blog as often as I remember about something I'm grateful for (since it's almost Thanksgiving!) and I hope anybody that reads this might try to do the same! So here is my day number uno, enjoy!

I am grateful for...


I know, so obvious. I love this man though. He is my best friend, my confidant, my arm candy, my place to fall, my everything. Yesterday was our 6 month mark and as we talked about it we agreed that it has flown by so quickly but at the same time it's hard to imagine life before we were "us". He is such a hard worker and takes care of me so well. I look back to the end of last year when I accepted a random friend request from this "hot guy" and I would have never guessed where I would be right now. It's mind boggling. But I'm so glad it all happened the way it did. I was listening to the new Taylor Swift cd today and found a song that makes me think of the first night Zac and I hung out, and how amazed I was by him. So I'm going to share it with you, because I'm nice. :) The part that makes me laugh is the very end when it says "Please don't be in love with someone else, Please don't have somebody waiting on you" because I remember after meeting him thinking that I wanted him all to myself and I didn't want any other girls to be waiting around for him. Perfect.

warning: the best part about this post is the picture. yeah, we're that boring.

I am a slacker yes I am.
(feel free to sing that in your head the way I did, it makes it more fun.)

Well, we've been pretty busy lately. Zac and I are both working full time and trying to squeeze in some together time when we can. It gets a wee bit frustrating. But we both love our jobs and appreciate this whole dual income thing :)

I know I promised pictures of our little home but I have decided to postpone that until we have some decent furniture (like a BED! we're over this whole air-mattress thing) and maybe a couple decorations up. I don't even know if anyone was waiting on those, I just thought I'd throw it out there just in case.

Also, in case I didn't mention it, we need a bed. This is critical to a happy marriage I think. Kidding. Mostly.

Anywho, hi. We're still around.

Tuesday, September 14, 2010


Dear KSL,
I love you. I really do. Sometimes you suck, though. Stop letting people post great deals with NO pictures. It weirds me out. I refuse to drive to Lehi to pick up anything that is "in great condition" that I can't see. Even if I DO need a kitchen table. Or bed frame. Or a TV stand. And if the person that posted it is just too lazy to snap a picture of it well, then I don't think they deserve my business. Thanks.

Mrs. Martin

Dear Oven,
Hi, do you remember me? The girl that was so excited to use you... Well, you're letting me down. It should not take you an hour and a half to pre-heat to 400 degrees. We both know I'm too impatient to wait to put my homemade bread in. Which results in gross bread, in case you forgot. Let's pick up the pace, eh?

The girl with no homemade bread

Dear People that use the Washer at Two AM,
I have a fun fact for you, that washer is RIGHT underneath my bedroom. Do you know how loud that thing can get? I don't think you do, considering you ditch your clothes down there and leave them in the washer and/or dryer for 2 days. Weird, seeing as how it was imperative you had to wash them RIGHT THEN. Oh, and then you walk in on me taking them out when I've finally had enough. That wasn't awkward or anything. Anyways, next time just hold your horses, do you laundry when you have time to actually do it.

The tired Martins

PS. Turn the dang light off, we pay for the electricity down there.

I am a simple girl. I get excited over little things.

Like yesterday when Zac and I signed the rental agreement for our new apartment I almost squealed.

Our new place is so adorable and charming. It was built in the 30's and has exposed brick and hardwood floors. It's a quaint little place. Perfect for us and I can't wait to see what I can do with it.

I pinky promise I'll post pictures.

Oh, and the exciting news is postponed for just a couple days.

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

tomorrow is going to be very exciting for me!

do you want to know why?

i bet you do.

so i guess you'll have to check here tomorrow to see what it is...


Friday, August 20, 2010


I like to smell good. It's a little problem I have; I am addicted to perfume.

I think it all started with this little bottle


Viva La Juicy. Seriously delicious and when I first found it, it was so unique (nevermind that you can buy it at walmart now with a scratch and sniff sticker on it) and I wore it all the time and constantly got compliments. I think this is when my life changed.

Then I bought my Flora by Gucci in Russia as a little gift to myself. Plus, it's awesome because I bought it it RUSSIA.


I love this smell. This is what actually inspired me to write this little blog post. The other night Zac and I were getting ready for bed and I suddenly panicked. I had no clue where all my perfume was, and my Gucci is what I wanted. So today as I'm packin' up our apartment I found it! And I quickly sprayed it all over myself. And now I am sitting in my own little cloud of heavenly Flora.

For Christmas I talked my mom into buying me this one...


Brittnee's little sister Brailee came to our apartment with this one on and I DIED. It's fresh and scrumptious. Basically I wear it every single day.

Next, I want some Coach. Just to spice it up.


Kylee and I both found this in a magazine and have confessed to rubbing the little test strip all over ourselves like fools. But yum. It's a good one.

The end.

obesessed with:

vanilla mint chapstick. thanks britt.


a rental contract. blech.

listening to:

kings of leon. old and new. i know it sounds risque but "sex on fire" is a magnificent song.


i've watched alot of nonsense lately, but i saw food, inc. this week AND watched now and then, SUCH a good movie.

hoping for:

this adorable house in provo to work out for us!

not so happy about:

just normal stressy stuff. like money.

happy about:

the summer almost being over! i might get to see my husband a little more often and i get to decorate a house that is OURS. and we can see all of our friends and family! oh it will be bliss.

grateful for:

oh, so many things. zac, his job, my family, the gospel, our amazing friends, our health, music, crafty stuff that keeps me busy... the list is never ending!

Friday, August 13, 2010

money. ugh.

I'm not exaggerating a bit when I say that the only downside of marriage that I have found is that everything seems more expensive. I guess I was so used to living the single girl life with a little bit of help from my parents that all of these grown up expenses just blow my mind! And this summer we've had lots of surprise expenses pop up like new tires and airplane tickets. But I heard about and the word was that this site is fantastic for budgeting and keeping track of everything. And it is. I love it! I was a tiny bit skeptical in the beginning when I had to link my bank accounts to it but I did some research and finally felt comfortable with it. I'm hooked! I feel more at ease dealing with our money and knowing where it's all going! Just sayin... I highly recommend it.

the return.

I'm back from Idaho. It was a good trip; I loved seeing all my family even though the circumstances weren't happy. When I say all my family, I mean ALL my family. All of my aunts and uncles were able to make it from all over the country and lots and lots of cousins.

The funeral services for my grandpa were absolutely perfect. We all laughed at the good old stories about him, like when he had convinced my grandma while they were dating that he was a pimp and was very serious about it until my grandma got so upset that she demanded he take her home (that's always been a personal favorite of mine) but at the same time everyone had such respect for the life that he lived. It was touching. So many people came to show their love for him and it was just visual proof of the good person he was.

I didn't get any pictures while I was there which I now regret but it's ok, it wasn't too exciting. We spent alot of time on grandma's back porch just hangin' out.

On the way back yesterday I took a flight from SLC to Phoenix and then from there to Chicago. Those were the longest flights of my life. On the first one I sat by the nicest old lady that of course smelled like she hadn't bathed in a week and a lady on the other side of me that was SO rude to the flight attendants that I felt bad for even sitting next to her. Also, she had hairy legs. Yuck. THEN, on the flight from Phoenix there was a screaming baby behind me and a girl from Detroit that needed to tell her whole life story THIS LOUD to the guy next to her. Oh airplanes. I need my space. Ha.

I'm SO glad to be back home with Zac now. That was a rough week without him. I love my husband.

Now, I'm trying to get everything in order because our summer is finally winding down! I'm searching high and low for a decent apartment at a decent price in or around Orem. Any suggestions? I've decided that I need a washer and dryer, I've been spoiled this summer by always having one and now I just don't think I can go back.

Friday, July 30, 2010

There are times when I just want to flop myself on the ground, throw a fit, and yell "Why?! Why is life unfair?!"

Today is one of those times. This morning, around 11 I believe, my grandpa Jack passed away in Idaho. For those of you who don't know what's been going on with him I will try to explain... In April of this year my grandpa was sent to Salt Lake for a quadruple bypass surgery and a valve replacement because he was having heart problems. After the first surgery was completed his heart was doing great but they discovered blockage in some of his arteries leading to his brain. There were a lot more complications during his stay in the hospital there but finally in June he was able to go home to Idaho.

My grandpa was an amazing man, to say the least. I loved him as much as any little girl can love her grandpa. He was like a super hero to me, nothing could keep him down. He had been through so much including ridiculous stuff like brain surgery and West Nile. I even wrote in my journal during the time of West Nile that it was so hard for me to see my big, strong grandpa so weak. I didn't believe it could ever happen. But he was always so resilient. He was always there. He would always tell me that his favorite memory with me was sitting on the concrete steps in the back when I was little and I was explaining to him, "I have a dad, and a step dad. And my step dad makes me eat vegetables. Vegetables are disgusting." And he always just laughed when he would tell me that because he was impressed with my vocabulary at such a young age. And just remembering how he would tell me that story makes me miss him so much it almost hurts.

The last time I got to see my grandpa was in the hospital in Salt Lake when Zac and I stopped on our way through during the California to Chicago move. I hate that that is my last memory of him. I'm so glad he got to go home from the hospital and spend time with the family before he passed. I can just imagine him back at home laying on the floor of the living room in his spot just like he always did. Oh man, I gotta stop, I haven't stopped crying since I started writing.

I know this isn't the most eloquent writing, but I needed something to do rather than sit here in my apartment and cry. I can't wait to be home with the family, I fly out on Sunday. I want to just sit with them and relive our happiest memories of grandpa, to work through this together. It still feels surreal for me.

Here are some photos that I took for grandma and grandpa in April, the night before they headed to Salt Lake for the surgery. This is how I want to remember him, so in love with grandma and happy in little ol' Firth.


This past weekend I went up to Chicago with Zac, Sam, and Ben. It was pretty fun minus the fact that by the time we got back to the car my feet felt like they were bleeding because I have bad judgement in shoes. No big thang.

We walked past the Transformers 3 set that they have downtown, it was pretty awesome. No celeb spottings or anything but still cool. This is Bumblebee under the grey cover and possibly a concept Porsche under the red. It's just a guess though. And I say that like I was the one guessing. Ha.

According to Zac the Chicago skyline is the prettiest, even better than New York!

Ummm... I love that one in the middle. I like the other ones, too but DANG that middle guy ;)

Those dumplings are delish. Try them. NOW.

Monday, July 26, 2010

Food. Glorious food.

I'm not kidding when I say I've been on a cooking kick.

My sisters make fun of me for my constant runs to the grocery store and for my need to bake delicious treats on a regular basis.

I have made delectable lemon loaf a la Starbucks, the most amazing coconut bread EVAH, and homemade oreos (or as Grandma Bonnie calls them, whoopie pies).

All within the past 2 weeks.

Stop me.

Before I die in a happy sugar induced coma.

Tonight I plan on making this delightful Pioneer Woman apple dumpling recipe for Zac and some of the other reps. They will love me.

My point? I don't know. All I know is that I am going through a phase, and I may need to become reacquainted with the elliptical machine.

Monday, July 19, 2010

Updates and such.

I was going to do a longer post. There was going to be lots of pictures. But guess what? (grumble grumble) This computer is lame-o. Or I am. One of those. So here are the ones that actually loaded. They're all just a recap of some stuff I've been up to.

These are some necklaces I made a couple weeks ago! One of the other wives here was a ceramics major in college and but now that she has kids she just does smaller stuff like this. She put on a little "class" for us so we could make our own and I love them! My favorite is the one with the chain on it because if you can't tell I'm a little in love with our initials.

Sometimes when Zac is knocking he gets some random stuff from people, this is just one example. He sold a system to someone and they gave him a big frame with this awesome Polish poster in it. I have a bunch of smaller posters from Russia that I planned on putting in my kitchen so this will actually fit in perfectly! PS if anyone can read Polish I'd love to know what it says... It seems a little weird to me so knowing what it means would make me feel better about putting it on a wall.

This picture was behind the Polish poster. Kind of cool? I think? I don't know what I would ever do with it but I know I should keep it around because it will serve some purpose.

Sooo since we've been out here in Chicago I've taken to cooking. It's my new thang. I was getting a pretty big head because I hadn't made a single dinner that Zac didn't like even with recipes I had never tried! So the other night I was attempting to make Southwest egg rolls like the appetizers at Chili's. I only ever use the front burner on my stove but I needed to heat up my oil on the back burner this time. I didn't check before I turned on the heat though and when I turned around there were flames coming up around the sides of my skillet! Ahhh! There must have been something stuck on/under the burner that started it. Now mind you, the flames are coming up around the sides of a pan with oil in it, I just picture the flames getting bigger and starting a big grease fire in the pan! So I started screaming. And hopping (seriously.) around my little kitchen yelling "Um. Zac. Baby. Um." for what seems like FOREVER. I couldn't even say "FIRE!" because apparently I was in the middle of panicking. But he ran in and asked me where the baking powder was so I pointed to the cupboard next to the stove and he took his sweeeet time getting it out. Luckily, Zac knew exactly what to do and didn't panic. What an awesome husband. So this picture is the result. Ta-da. Scary.

Friday, July 16, 2010


So after a couple weeks of me not knowing that much about this new (to us) computer we have I was getting so frustrated with not being able to post on my blog... I'm Mac impared. I finally stopped using Firefox and clicked on the Safari thingy and bam! I can post again! Anyways, I'm excited because I can finally post some picture of our new apartment and of our latest adventures and such! But that will have to be tomorrow...

For now, I just want to let you all know that I've started a new little business! Check out! I've been making headbands like a madwoman and I've decided to set up a little shop! Check it out, look for me here on Facebook, tell your friends, help me out! :)

Thursday, June 17, 2010

my fingers are about to break off.

I'm sitting here looking for any excuse to take a break from writing thank you cards (I know, it's been 2 months, I'm hurrying!!!!) because my poor little hands are starting to become permanently cramped. Yeouch. So I thought to myself "Psh, blog post!"

Guess what happens tomorrow?! Me and this handsome guy get our new apartment!

You may be saying "Amy, where have you been living then?" Oh no big thang, we've just spent the last 2 weeks living in an extended stay hotel. Zac loves it here but I have mixed feelings about it. I feel weird having people come in and make my bed in the morning and this is the "kitchen" that I am supposed to cook in...

Yeah, we've been living like slobs, don't judge. Also, you can see So You Think You Can Dance on in the background.

I'm ready for our new apartment, I'm excited to unpack everything from the car and to be able to cook a decent meal!

(This picture is just to show you all where I've been ALL day, you can see the boxes of cards and the computer I'm using for the gift list. I CANNOT wait to be done with the darn things!)

Pictures of the apartment coming soon hopefully :)

I'm not really one of those bloggers that read a bajillion other blogs, I usually like to stick to just friends and family but the one exception I make is for Busy Bee Lauren. Seriously hilarious. I mean, srsly. She had a post about old favorite photos and I love the idea. If I had my computer in the hotel with me I would probably have an unnecessarily long post this time, but for now I just have the used Mac that Zac bought from one of his friends that doesn't have any of my personal photos... So I swiped my NEW favorite picture from my own Facebook. Ha.

Is this not the most fantastic picture ever? I absolutely LOVE it. My dad has always been one of my very favorite people, ever since I was just his little JoJo. I love how much we look alike, especially in this picture. It was kind of crazy on my wedding day with SO many people outside the temple and so many pictures to get... After we took group photos Zac and I went around the side of the temple to the "bride's garden" for photos of just us. Well, my dad came running around the corner and asked Andrea (my photographer) if she would take some of me and him. I am so happy that he did, this is so special to me. I can't believe I almost didn't get one of just us. Dad and JoJo.

Now it's your turn, whoever is reading this. It's fun. Just find a favorite picture and tell about it. The memories will be worth it.

Monday, June 7, 2010


Just in case any of you haven't heard, WE'VE MOVED! Ahhh! We are now living in the Aurora/Naperville area in Illinois. Which is nuts because I lived in Naperville when I was just a wee one! Anyways, it's been crazy and I just flew in yesterday so I'll post stuff soon, but I just wanted to let everyone know! :)

I ♥ the sunshine state.

(ugh. i loaded the pictures backwards. dumb.)

Even though California still scares me alot (like driving), I LOVE being so close to the ocean! A couple days ago I went to the beach with Zac and some of the other boys before they went to work, the water was FREEZING but it was still lots of fun!

(are you ready for the best picture EVER?)

(are you sure?)

(ok, make it big and look at each of their faces individually. it made my day.)

So right now my husband (I'm still getting used to that) is down in the hot-tub with some of the other sales reps because his wife is a wimp and hates hot-tubs; but, as I sat here alone in our apartment I started to miss him. And I just saw him. Like 30 minutes ago before he went down there. What I'm trying to say is that I am madly, deeply in love with the handsome man that I am lucky enough to be married to. I don't even think I could come up with the right words to describe how much LOVE I feel for him. I am getting teary eyed. This is just ridiculous. But really, it's not, because as far as I am concerned, he is the most amazing guy in the world. It keeps hitting me at random times and this time I just felt like I should write it down, and apparently share it with you.

In addition to that paragraph above, I will point out a few of my favorite things about my Zachary.

1. He is goofy, just like me. We have some super random moments where people just wouldn't understand what is so funny...

2. He works so hard for us. Every single day. I know that Zac's job isn't easy and it can be emotionally draining to be rejected so many times in a day, but he keeps at it and seriously works his bum off.

3. He keeps us on the right path. Zac is the one that always announces it's time for scripture or prayer. Righteousness is hot.

4. Yeah, he's hot.

5. Zachary tries so hard to understand his sometimes crazy wife (uhhh, me.) Like when I start crying because I'm still trying to get used to all these changes in my life, he just wants to help.

So you see, I basically won. I got the best husband ever. And, just so you know, not only am I in love with Zac, but I'm in love with marriage. Seriously. There is nothing better than being a wife. I love cooking for him, and cleaning our apartment. It might sound crazy but it's true. My favorite is randomly glancing down at my AMAZING wedding ring and being reminded that I am sealed to my best friend for time and all eternity. Yeah, that's the best feeling in the world.

Hi. We're alive.

Yay! New married people blog! :) I (Amy, the one who will always be writing on this thing) just wanted to make a new blog to share with my new husband! Married life is fantastic and I'll be posting lots of pictures soon but for now this is it. Enjoy!
