And this post

I just replied to Brec's comment, and I'm sharing it via post to make sure everyone understands. Including me dear husband... who set wordpress up. for me. because blogger never seems to work correctly.
ANYWAY! the comment;
I had NEVER heard of wordpress before, but I was trying to post over here and the pictures wouldn't go where I wanted them too, the text color wouldn't change no matter how hard I tried to get it too and the font doesn't even change size for Mike! So, with my complaints expressed to Mike, he sat down, waved his hands over the keyboard and voila! we had
a wordpress account. We are just trying it out. So far it is complicated, but blogger was for me at first too! BUT, you cannot follow bogs over at wordpress :( So who knows, we may just have to move back here.

So there you have it folks. I must say though, it is kind of fun to have a change of scenery.
Perhaps this is just a nice vacation.
So please, tell me your thoughts on this. I would like to know;
1) who would read our blog over at wordpress?
2) does anyone even read our blog here? and,
3) why you do/don't like wordpress

Chocolatechipwaffles is now over at wordpress. We're keeping our blog here at blogger too, but our new posts will be over at our new location. we would love for you to start following us there, please do? it is Bueno Mucho! Yes, those are the words I chose. Over at wordpress, the page we picked was titled Bueno. The words were already up at the top, so we decided to go with it. Hopefully they won't lie. I had finally figured out how things worked over here in blogworld, now I've got to figure out how they run over at wordworld. We'll see how it goes..

Don't be afraid to visit!

Something so wonderful has to be shared!

So I have known about making lights look like hearts by pulling some magic with your camera for quite some time now. Don't you love fun little things?!
THEN, I found GLASSES, yes, GLASSES that
magically turn any light at which you look, into a LOVEerly heart. You just put these glasses on, and voila! hearts. everywhere. Isn't that awesome!? You can only imagine my excitement when I discovered them. I couldn't keep something so fun all to myself, it makes me smile more than I already do! Yeah. You read that right. And you are all wondering, "is that even possible?" Yes folks, yes it is.
So get yourself and all your friends, co-workers, neighbors, traffic guards, everyone you know, or don't! a pair! Can you imagine how
happy everyone would be if they all owned a pair of these awesome cardboard beauties?! Pretty fun guys. P. RETTY FUN.

some of my favorite pictures

source: 1. 2. 3. 4.

For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

He is always there for us. Reach out and take His hand.

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

( The past couple of days, It has meant a lot to me knowing that Christ is our brother and is always there when we need Him. I decided to put my bridal pictures next to these photos of Christ. They are from Reflections of Christ by Mark Mabry. The ones of myself are my bridals done by James Cawly. thank you!)

Drink from the fountain of youth

"You two look so young!"
"Do you think you guys will ever get married?"
"Really?! But you look like you're in Jr. high!"
"You aren't really that old..."
"But really..."
"No you aren't..."
"You AREN'T married..."
"Honeymoon? really? You guys look so little!"
"I would have guessed 14 or 15 for you..."
And one favorite from Grandpa Kramer on our wedding day. Hahahaha.
Thanks random people. I don't know if these are compliments or not... I've been getting this my whole life (even BEFORE the braces) I've just learned to say thank you. I guess looking younger is good.
Michael? You know what everyone's problem is? We're too good looking. I love you and your hunkalicious bod. People will be jealous when they're old and wrinkly and we still look amazing and young.

Oh my heavens I love my husband!

Hon, since the day we met you have been making me laugh.
I LOVE it!
You have done SO much for me, my family, your family, friends, and complete strangers.
YOU are the BEST!
You have ALWAYS been doing wonderful things for me. Buying me amazing Dragon Ball shirts, taking me places, building things with me, teaching me to cook, singing the absolute best songs ever with me, playing games with me, dancing in random places with me, coloring outside with me, making awesome movies with me, building cool Leggo things with me,
playing with your food with me, throwing yourself surprise parties with me, giving rocks, trees, cash registers, cars and other things faces with me, acting like children at playgrounds with me, singing the national anthem at the top of your lungs ALL. THE. TIME with me, and taking bike rides with me. Plus like so much more.

I love you

a wonderful life

I was recently chatting with a close friend.

This friend and I go back many years together.

I am very lucky to have such a close friend with a one of a kind friendship.

We are always going to one another for advice.

Tonight He needed advice from me, and by asking for my help, he ended up helping me out!

It is always nice when that happens.

In our conversation this scripture came up.
D&C 5:24 "Behold, I say unto him, he exalts himself and does not humble himself sufficiently before me; but if he will bow down before me, and humble himself in mighty prayer and faith, in the sincerity of his heart, then will I grant unto him a view of the things which he desires to see." He told me that while in the temple, this scripture came to him and he was not sure why. He is trying to be less prideful.
I don't like the word.
When I read this scripture, I immediately thought of what I wanted to tell him to help him out. Very quickly this scripture that was "his" soon became "mine." I read it again and I got my own answer out of it.
Our conversation continued, and He told me that while in the temple it came to his attention that for the longest time, he has had a book mark in Doctrine and Covenants 5 for quite some time now. He did not know why, but when he started reading from its book marked place, he found this scripture and it was clear to him. It is so amazing to me how God answers our prayers, little ways people would not readily notice. We must have clear minds, and open hearts.
I am thankful for
Temples. Trust. The Gospel. Close friends. My wonderful husband. & love.

This video is corny, but was fitting. I sent it his way and he was grateful. It is all to true. In every day life, in many different situations. Whether it's a secret crush, or a phone call to a sister, it seems like more often than not, this happens to us.
Tell someone how you feel. Express yourself.
THIS video is not from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I do not have anything to do with the website at the end of the video, or the video at all. Except that I watched it, and I enjoy it. I think it has a good message. So whoever you are David Steindle-Rast... thanks. If you want to learn more about MY religion, visit
