Anyhow, Did take some pictures of the progress of our house, however I do not have them with me right now but I will post them as soon as I get a chance!
The next big thing in our life together is that we had our 1 year anniversary!!!!! I cannot believe that I have been married to the most incredible husband ever for a whole year!!! This has been the best year of my life and I look forward to the eternity that we will be spending together.
As I mentioned before, I am now working. I work at Empire Bank in Springfield and I actually really enjoy the job. Dont get me wrong, I enjoyed staying home and working on my house and being a wife a lot better, but its not that bad. I am glad that I work with Desiree, however I am sure that the people we work with probably get tired of hearing us talk about the good ol' days in Sweet Springs. The reason for me going back to work is because Justin is starting school this summer. Because he went on a mission and came back and was engaged to me after 3 months...he did not have the opportunity to start school. We now feel that the time is right so he is working part time and taking classes part time. Its worked out pretty good so far, however I get a little jelous of his homework. I guess I should just be thankful he is a MUCH better student then I ever was and he actually does his homework!
Justin and I had an addition to our nieces and nephews count. Justin's sister Shanacy had a baby girl at the end of March. Her name is Rebecca Lynn Critchfield. I havent seen her in person but from the pictures I have seen of her, I am a pretty proud aunt...she is definately cute! Justin and I are experiencing our first time apart for more than a day...he left on Friday to fly out to Utah for Rebecca's blessing. He will get back on Monday. I wanted to go out there so bad but because I am an employed woman now, it was not possible. :( I told Justin to take pictures of everything so that I could feel like I was there...I really miss my nieces...they are so much fun!
Dont worry, I am almost done with all of the updates, however my next big event is that my sister moved :( I am really sad about this. My nephew Egan is starting to stand up and tries to take steps and Blake is at that really fun age where you never know what is going to come out of his mouth. The other day he was playing in the back of PaPa's truck and I climbed up there with him and he said "no A-YAY (thats aunt Linzi to Blake) go get in your white car" It was pretty funny. Anyhow they have moved to Arkansas so that Tony can do his externship. Hopefully they will only be there a year! Speaking of my sisters, my little sister Jodie came up here this weekend since Justin was gone. Her and I played in a softball tournament which was a lot of fun. I am definately feeling it today though...But I was very happy when someone asked me if we were twins...that means that I still look 17!!! Its funny how when you are younger you always want to look older and then when you start getting older you want to look younger! When I told the team how old I was they were saying that they thought I was 19 or so...made my day!
Justin and I have been playing a TON of softball this year. Justin and I play on a coed team and then Justin plays on a men's team. It is a blast...when we win! Our teams are actually pretty good! I have also been picked up by a few other teams. Just this last week I played on Thursday, Friday and a tournament on Saturday so I was exhausted! I played a total of 6 games in 3 days and I hit my first tripple of the year (probably my only one to)! Anyhow, its been a great few months and hopefully in a few more weeks I will be able to get on here and write about how much I love our new house! Until then I will just work on doing better just writing something!

I especially love the "Come what may, & love it. How awesome is it to remember these things when we are going through hard times. There are plenty more of these on YouTube and they are all so uplifting!
On a different note to update you on Justin and I, well we are still here in Hilton Head, South Carolina. This has been a crazy week I originally thought we were going to be finished and head home on Tuesday...that didnt happen. Then we thought Wednesday, then Thursday, then Friday and now it is Saturday and we are STILL HERE! I love it here but I have had it in my head for the past 4 days that we are going home, so now I am ready to head home! I guess I shouldnt be too upset that we arent home yet because from what it sounds, Missouri is having some pretty nasty weather...dont worry its still in the 70's here! Anyhow, Justin and I have had such a great time here, this place truly is beautiful and the weather here just makes a person happy! But I am still ready to get home because that means that we get to start working on our apartment!!!! I am so excited for us to have a little place to call home that is NOT in his parents basement! Anyhow, I will update you on our progress of getting home and fixing up our place! Have a good day!

So I was looking through some old pictures and found some pictures of my bachelorette party! I know these pictures are almost a year old, however I couldn't help but want to post them! I am so excited that I found these pictures. It was such a FUN night. It consisted of my girl cousins, my little sister, and one of my best friends! We went to Chucky Cheese's and it was AWESOME!!!! Who would have thought that 7 grown girls would have so much fun at a kids place. It was definately one of the best times of my life! We probably spent $50 dollars and walked out of there with a $2 Chucky Cheese shirt just for me! We even danced in front of the big blue screen however we had to sit on our knees because it was not tall enough for us! Now that I have found the pictures, I will never forget what a great night that was! If you click on the photos in the collage they will get bigger so you can see the pictures better.
On our way to the park...the shadow in this picture is really bad!
Justin catching a pop fly
Is it just me or does Justin look scared or something in this picture? He is probably already tired of me taking pictures!
I am not sure why he has the ball next to my head like that!
This is probably my favorite face...the first picture I took of him going across the monkey bars came out blurry so I told him he had to do it again and this is the face he gave me!
I am not sure why he wanted to try to get on the roof here. He climbed up there and then realized that the roof probably wasn't strong enough to hold him up!
I married a California boy...what can I say? Yes, my husband is surfing on the back of a plastic alligator!
We didnt have a basketball so he is dunking the camera case...good job Justin!
Yeah, thats right...I bet you didnt know that my name is high school was Linzi "air" Harris! Okay so maybe thats a lie, I might have just had Justin put me on his shoulders so that I could hang there till he took the pictures! I tried to look like I had just done an amazing dunk, however I look more like I am holding on for dear life and just about to fall!

I thought of my dear friend Kelli Holman when I took this picture. She always takes pictures of flowers!
This is just a little river the runs under the path
Hilton Head, South Carolina is ALL about golfing. There are probably 50 golf courses just on the island! This is the one that I pass everyday here is the Shipyard Plantation.
This is pretty much what the whole trail looks like. There are trees everywhere which is great for running because you dont have the sun beaming down on you!
Another Kelli picture!
This is the round-about. Its seems like they have a lot of these instead of 4-way stops...its still pretty though!
What kind of run would this be if I didnt see the turtle family? I just love those little guys!
Every time I pass this pond, it makes me want to jump and and go swimming. It totally reminds me of the lake, the smell, the sun reflecting off the water, and the fish jumping! However, with the fear of aligators in there, I think I will just stick to running by it!
If I would have known about this bridge when I was taking my engagement pictures or my senior pictures, I SOOO would have taken them there. Its such a pretty and old looking bridge. I love it!
And last but not least, my absolute favorite part of the run is seeing the aligators. This is the pond next to where I turn around and I swer this alligator is the biggest one here! He is HUGE! I think he head is bigger then 1/2 of my body! I wish you could see him from the front. Sometimes he is facing the road but today he wasn't so this will have to do!
This is the point where I turn around in my run so everything I see from then on is the same as before. I just love the beauty of this place. I hope you enjoyed your tour of my run!
