Flowers are nice except when....


So I was looking over our bank statement online, like I usually do, and I noticed a charge from Easy saver 800-355-1837 for $14.95.  I have no idea what it was for so I asked my husband if he had bought anything online lately.  He told me no so I decided to research the matter further.  There was a number so I called it and of course it is past business hours.  So I decided to just copy and past that whole section in to google to do some research and guess what! There are about 20 other people I found that were scammed and had the same charges as I did, but they did not authorize them or buy anything! They said the common thread was that they had all ordered from Pro-Flowers at one time or another.  I am so frustrated and it turns out that they had charged me before for $1.95 as well.  Just like the other complaints that I found online!  

So this is just a warning to all of you! Please be extra careful when you order from Pro-Flowers, apparently there are some boxes that are checked when you go through the ordering process and if you don't uncheck them they charge you for some service fee your not even using! Now I have to go through the bank with all this fraud stuff.  So please be careful and read the fine print when ordering anything online.  I know I will be telling my husband too because he is the one who ordered from Pro-Flowers and I don't think that we will ever order from them again!

Counting down the weeks!

Well friends it is getting down to the weeks! I am almost to a single digit countdown! Life has continued to be so busy for us! School will be over in a few weeks, and I feel so overwhelmed! It seems like I have a project and paper due in every class, with final exams as well.  But I know that if I can get through this then I will then only have about a week until Kenny comes home from his deployment! AHHH it feels so good to finally be at the end.  Although I HATE deployments and having to spend a year away from my husband it has definitely strengthened me.  I knew going into this that the Lord would never give me more than I could handle but I have to admit I thought maybe he forgot who he was giving this trial too.  But like every other trial I continue to be amazed and know that the Lord helped me through this whole thing.  What a strength he is and I am definitely blessed to have his hand continue to help my life.  I have learned so much about myself and even Kenny while he has been gone.  This experience was tough but it has enriched my live I know.  I cant wait! Counting down the days...... :)

We are so close

It has been a while since I have written.  Life has been so busy.  School is going good and work is as well.  I have been taking a Boot Camp class at Mountainside Fitness.  It is hard but I really enjoy it.  I feel so much better about myself.  I hope that I will continue to work out after this class ends.  Kenny says that he would like to work out with me when he gets home.  So we can work out as a couple. Aww how cute!

The first two sessions of General conference were today.  It was weird at first to hear them say President Thomas S. Monson as president of the church. But I know that he will be a great prophet and he will so so well for the church.  He truly is an instrument in the Lord's hands.  The talks were all very good, but tomorrow I need to pay closer attention I think, and definitely get more sleep tonight so I am not dosing off during conference.

I got to talk to Kenny today. That was nice cause it has been about a week since I have actually got to talk to him and have a conversation with him.  We are starting to make plans for when he gets home, which is getting closer and closer! We can't wait to start our lives together, we need to find a place to live and move our stuff in, we plan on taking a couple little trips and a big one to Hawaii as a kind of "make-up" honeymoon and I can't wait! We are going to have a blast! Here is just another day in the life of an army wife.
