"I got you flowers!"

Was the first thing I heard when I came home today. Josh surprised me with roses the same colors we used for our wedding! He said he wanted to prove that he thinks about me throughout the day. Such a sweetheart. Sorry, we aren't usually PDA but I couldn't help posting this! Love you babe!

Date Day in Park City

Park City will always hold a special place in my heart because two years ago, Josh proposed on Main Street. We come back frequently or whenever we find an excuse. Since the Sundance Film Festival has been going on, we had made plans for a few weeks to come up today...so we did. We weren't planning on going to the outlets, but of course decided too. Sadly, we left empty handed (I know you are all shocked).

After, we headed up to Main Street. We love going in all the shops and boutiques and window shopping. Then we ended the night eating at the Wasatch Brewery at the very top of the street. Let's just say they have the BEST Mac n Cheese I've ever had.

It was such a fun day to spend with my wonderful hubby! Can't believe it's almost been two years!

I was called to be the Nursery secretary a few months ago, but with all my back problems that occurred, I wasn't able to really help out. This week is my first official week to do nursery and I'm getting excited about it. As you can see, I started working on the activity at work...

I have some other ideas too. I'll post about the end result :)

December Birchbox

My December Birchbox arrived while I was out of town but I wanted to do a post of what I got.

1. Benefit POREfessional. I use this from a sephora sample I got a while ago and I love it. This may be something I end up purchasing in a big size.

2. Harvey Prince Yogini. Smells...interesting. Probably won't ever buy. But I'll wear it til it runs out.

3. Jouer lip gloss. Looks a little too bright for me.

4. Nuxe dry oil shimmer. Thought it was nail polish. I'll use it in the summer when I'm tan!

5. Show Stoppers. Basically tape to keep your clothes in place ( if you know what I mean).

6. EBoost. Put in your drink for more energy. Will be trying this around 2:00 pm on Monday ;)

Tweet Me

I know, I go several weeks with no posts and now two in one day?!  Crazy!  But I couldn't resist.  Today I got a tweet from Janelle Brown...one of the sister wives.  I love their show and well, THEM!  I was laughing so hard I could barely breathe.  I mean, it's not that big of a deal, but it is.  You always want a famous person you follow to tweet you back.  I know the sister wives are not A-list celebs, but it's good enough for me!!!  Check it out.

I always am tweeting people I follow in hopes that they'll return with a tweet to me.  So in this case, I asked Janelle a question about something she had posted about her son and I got a response.  I can't believe it.  I am still in shock.  It's like being star struck through the social media.  Haha.  I am so lame.  I am going to keep tweeting people though and see if my luck continues. 

My New Obsession...

I get into phases where I am obsessed with something.  Whether it be a couple days, weeks, months, whatever.  I get these ideas and it sticks.  Right now my latest obsession is eBay.  First of all, I have already made a ton of money selling things on eBay and secondly, I will never pay full-price for ANYTHING as long as there is the internet.  I'd like to show you my most recent eBay find that my mother-in-law got me for Christmas.  I love this J. Crew Bubble necklace but really...would I ever spend $150 on it?  No way!  Let's just say Eve got it for $15 on eBay!!  Yep, true story.  Are you converted yet??  I know many people want others to know they are spending a boat load of money on fashion, but I want people to know that I am so proud of NOT spending a lot!  It's so fun...more bang for your buck!  And I just won a bid for another J. Crew necklace (pictured) for $4.25!  Ahhhh!!   I love this website.  

Any of you have any great eBay finds??

Other discounted places I have enjoyed: Nordstrom Rack and Zappos.com outlet.  I am planning a trip to Last Chance in Phoenix, AZ (a discounted Nordstrom store).  Anyone else interested? Let me know.

First Post of 2012

I know, I know, I have been M.I.A. for a while here in the blogging world; but I'm back and ready for 2012 and a new year of posts!

"What have Tiersha and Josh been up to lately," is I'm sure what you've been losing sleep over the past several weeks.  Let me start out and say...A LOT!  We have been so busy running around, ending fall 2011 semester, traveling to see our families, working, Christmas shopping, you name it, we've been doing it.

After Thanksgiving (my last post), we worked a ton, studied for finals, went to Temple Square with Kasey and Preston and dinner at the Lion House, did a lot of Amazon shopping, went to Hatches hot chocolate in SLC, Cirque de la Symphonie, and a ton of other fun stuff!  More pictures to come.

On December 18, we flew to California and went straight to Issac's farewell and lunch at Jim and Janice's.  It was fun to see everyone.  We are so excited to have ANOTHER Elder Neilson out serving a mission!  Currently there are three Elder Neilson's serving and this will be number 4!  Throughout the week we did last minute shopping, of course went to Disneyland, took three of the kids to the spectrum for the day, visited Desiree in the hospital (and even spent the night), enjoyed having Tahnee and Tyler come a couple days before we had to leave, had a wonderful Christmas Eve party (thanks to Heidi and her family) in Temecula, went on an adventure all over Orange County looking for a dog to give my mom for Christmas (no luck), had Christmas with the Sheppard's and took 4 1/2 hours to unwrap all the presents, celebrated Dad's birthday with a new power station, then took off to Kentucky on the red-eye Christmas evening.  More pictures to come.


 Once we got to Kentucky, we went shopping AGAIN!!  I don't think we got anything, but just went with the rest of the family.  We did a lot of relaxing which was perfect.  One of the highlights was baby Tess.  Rachel and Kevin had their baby girl on December 20, 8 lbs 12 oz.  She is perfect in every way and kept getting cuter every day.  Everyone loved holding her.  She didn't cry EVER and was just the best little cuddler.  Some fun things we did was play with Bennett and Liam, went to a movie (MI3), went to the Muhammad Ali Museum, ate at Gustavo's, ate a TON of great food (Eve is an amazing cook) and then we ate a ton of desserts and candy (yum)!  Also something neat that Rach and Kevin do is bless their babies at home, so while the whole family was there, they blessed Tess.  It was a beautiful moment and very intimate.  I loved it.  Those pictures are coming...soon.  We had a great time relaxing, veging, and being together.  I wish we could see Josh's family more...and this year will be a year where we do see each other more!  Everyone is coming out for Josh's graduation in April, we are going on an Alaskan cruise in August, and possibly a Thanksgiving trip.  Four times in one year?!  So fun!!  I have to admit it was pretty hard saying goodbye to those cute little boys, Liam and Bennett.


We got in last night and flew right into Provo.  Came home, went through all the mail (thank you for all the Christmas cards!!), unpacked EVERYTHING, watched a little E!, and then went to bed.  It was a wonderful trip.  Thanks to both our parents who made it all possible!! Thank you to my wonderful husband for the Christmas gifts, surprises, and being my best friend.  Josh truly is the most easy going person and I am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for putting us in the right place at the right time to meet and fall in love.  I love Christmas time and romance.  It makes me love him that much more :)

Now for the next four months...our last semester!!!!!!!  I cannot believe it's finally here.  I have been waiting a long time for this.  Josh starts school today and I start Tuesday.  This year will be a year of celebration...celebrating my nine years of school (on and off).  I'm sure there will be other things that pop up (maybe purchase our first home) and moving out of Provo (bittersweet).  We are so excited for what 2012 has in store for us.
