#PornKillsLove



I'm not one to get into a debate. I hate arguing. Everyone has their own opinions. But if you're trying to convince me of something that isn't true, than I will argue back. 

On Facebook, one of my friends shared an article going around. A billboard ad in Times Square went up and it's campaign is designed to normalize porn. I honestly think it's disgusting and it should be taken down. After she shared it, one of her friends (who I was getting very angry with) started debating that Porn is normal/good and EVERYONE watches it, including Mormons.

After he said that, I was already past angry, I was furious. First off, not EVERYONE watches porn. Maybe in his life/world that he comes from, but he's definitely wrong there. Second, yes there are some LDS people who have lost their way and somehow get into porn, but they find their way back to Christ. They know it's wrong and they work on getting better. Porn is a very serious thing and it kills relationships.

This debate about porn went on for a good thirty minutes. This guy made a comment and it went a long the lines of this, "So if you catch your husband watching porn, what are you going to do? Freak out at him? It's normal, he's a guy. Everyone watches porn." After that comment was made, you best believe that I went off on him. My husband Trevor HAS NEVER EVER WATCHED PORN BEFORE. I'll set that straight right now. He then decided to comment, "Are you sure? After all, he is a guy." Excuse me!!! Oh, I am way beyond furious. I am 100% sure that my husband has never watched porn. So what if he's a guy, that doesn't mean a darn thing. 


Porn doesn't just affect guys, it affects girls too. People may think it's normal/good from the way they were raised, but I was raised differently. Porn is a dangerous thing and kills relationships. If you are addicted to porn and want a way out, there's people out there who can help you. Get that help. I don't know from experience, but I've seen people go through it. You're not alone.

Just remember #PornKillsLove. Spread the word. Fight the new drug.

Latest Updates & October

These past couple of weeks have been quite busy! Couple things have changed and more things will be changing real soon. 


Trevor just had his 22nd birthday this past weekend! He's definitely feelin 22. First thing he did when he woke up was blast Taylor Swift's 22 song. Haha it was great. He had to work at night, but we just relaxed until he went to work and than the next day was an all Trevor day. We went shopping for things he wanted for his birthday (which he only got a shirt for work) and went out to eat and his little brother Mason tagged along. 

We were talking about how last year for his birthday was completely different from this year! Last year we were living in Provo, only been married a couple weeks, he had to work a morning and night shift at his job and his mom sent us some money so we could go to Olive Garden. My how things have changed just this past year. It's crazy! 

Trevor got switched to night shift up at the dam, which he likes because that means he can sleep in and do whatever he wants until he has to leave to work. He's such a hardworking husband and will do anything for our little family. He said he had a good birthday, which hopefully he really did. 22 never looked so good! 




Baby bump! I take a weekly bump picture  every week on Thursday, because that's when I start a new week of pregnancy. Those pictures are me at 30, 31, and 32 weeks pregnant. My time sure has flown by! I seriously can't believe my baby boy will be here NEXT MONTH. Ah!!!!! I can't wait. It'll be a new adventure, but I'm quite excited for it!

Also, kidney stones suck! Two weekends ago I was in the hospital AGAIN. I've only had kidney stones since being pregnant and it was my 4th time having them. We ended up having to stay the night and I passed the stones. It's so nice knowing that my baby boy is doing good and is still growing and is healthy as can be. Next time I go to the hospital it better to be deliver my baby!

We also finally have our doctor situation figured out up here, it took a long time and it was mostly my fault. My new doctors clinic and doctor are so amazing and we love the hospital we'll be delivering at. 


I've had this really strong feeling that I need to go back to school and finish. I am so excited to say I will be starting Spring semester of next year at SLCC! It's all online, but it gives me a chance to be a mom/wife still. I can't wait! After talking about it with Trevor and knowing what his opinion is and praying to know whether or not to go back, I finally got my answer. 


OCTOBER IS HERE!!!!! October is my absolute most favorite month out of the whole year. Ok, I really like December too, but October is my favorite. Why you ask. Well, it's my birthday month! Shoot whoot! I'll be feelin 22 soon. Also, it's fall! My favorite season ever, plus colder weather. Which means, leggings, boots, jackets/hoodies, scarves and all the fun cute fall clothing you can think of. It's also the beginning of the holiday season! And last but not least, only another month until my baby boy is here! 

Oh by the way...........................
WE FINALLY FOUND A HOUSE TO LIVE IN!!!!!! Yay!!!! No more RV trailer park for us. My mother in law was so kind to let us borrow her trailer until we found a place and we finally found a cute little 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house. We are so excited! 

Next blog post will be about our first real home with lots of pictures so stay tuned!

1 Year Down!


September 10, 2013 I married my best friend Trevor Simpson down at the Spanish Fork courthouse. Marrying him was one of the best decisions I've made in my life so far.

We made it through our first year of marriage! It's been a long road coming for us and we've over come some of the hardest trials that have been thrown our way. A lot has happened in this first year, but it's all been worth it. I can't wait to finally be sealed to him this December. Happy anniversary Trev! I love you! Bring on year 2!

No Place Like Utah

I really need to keep up on these blog posts! Don't worry everybody, I'm still here and ready to share another adventure with you all!

Towards the end of August, I had the opportunity to go down to Utah (where I'm from) and spend some time with my family. It was a great week and a half. I miss my family a lot, since we live in a different state. 



I got to see one of my cute nieces and nephews! Kennedi is so much fun to be around and I love being able to see her and my nephews. I spent a lot of time being able to see my older sisters as we'll. It's fun being an aunt and being able to come back and visit my nieces and nephews! It's crazy how much they grow and learn when you've only been gone for a couple months. 


Before I left, Trevor and I talked about me doing something with my dad that he would really like and he wouldn't have to pay for! So, we got tickets to Wicked and I took my dad out on a father daughter date. It was so much fun! We saw Wicked on Broadway in New York years ago, but being able to see it again was definitely worth it and a lot of fun. Spending time with my dad is one of the things I love to do whenever I have the chance to visit back home.





One of the things I really wanted to do while I was in Utah was to go to the Ogden Temple Open house and I got to with some of my family! It was so amazing and such a blessing to be able to walk through it. I was able to go do baptisms with my youth group back in 2010 right before they closed it, and coming back for the open house was a neat experience. It also got me really excited for when Trevor and I get to finally be sealed in the temple for time and all eternity. 



Also, I do weekly bump pictures of my baby bump every Thursday, because that's when I start a new week of pregnancy. These were while I was in Utah! 

Being in Utah was a lot of fun and kept me busy! I was moving or doing something at least everyday. I went to a ton of movies, almost one every day. Went out to eat a lot with family. I got to see my older brothers and sisters (except a few.) I got to stay at my grandparents house and see them and some of my aunts/uncles and cousins. I did a lot of shopping. It was just a great week and a half! 

I'll tell you what though, I was really excited to come back to Washington to be with Trevor! I really missed him while I was gone. He even got me a welcome home present ;)
