Tis The Season!

Well! It's that time of year again!When you get to eat all the yummy goodies and have celebrations and parties with people you love! I love this time of year...Especially when I think back a year ago Chris and I held hands for the first time!! Wow, it seems just like yesterday we were doing the whole dating thing. We were at temple square and I really wanted to hold his hand so, I would walk really close to him and bump into him with my hand to kind of give him a hint. Well, it worked! We held hands for the first time. It was amazing. Now a year later and we have been married almost 7 months now. Oh how time flies when you are having fun. I love this time of year when I get to spend my time with family and friends and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. I'm so thankful for the birth of Jesus Christ and I love that we can reflect upon Him especially this season.   

I'm excited to make new years resolutions! I'm so excited to have Chris help me be motivated to do them. He is such a great support to me. And I will help him in all of his!

I got to go with my sisters and mother in laws to witches night out at gardner village! We all dressed up and went up and I think my favorite part was seeing almost everyone dressed up. It's amazing how people go all out and make their costumes perfect for that night. My costume was a makeshift costume...haha I wasn't planning on dressing up but I conformed because everyone else was so I need to too!! It was really fun. I love hanging out with chris's family. We always have a great time in whatever we do.
Our life has been pretty busy lately it seems. With Chris going to school and working and just getting a new assignment to teach an English class in the stake on Thursday nights and me working almost 10-12 hours a day it gets pretty crazy. But, we are loving life besides the cold mornings that I really don't like. I'm really excited for Halloween this year! Halloween is significant because that's really the first time me and Chris really "hung out"!! After that we were inseparable

Pumpkin Patch!

Yesterday inbetween conferences Chris and I got invited by a family friend to come to their annual pumpkin patch party! Boy! there were tons of people there. It was fun though to see how cute the decorations were and to see some of my family there. They served hot dogs and chips for lunch which was actually pretty tasty. We even got to take home a cute pumpkin!! I think that was my favorite part.
Can you believe we have hit our 4 month mark of being married! Time flies like crazy when you are busy with school, work and of course more work! But we are sure having tons of fun!!

Oh how I wish I was there:
Yes, I took that picture! Around this time 3 years ago me and my mom were in Hawaii!! It was so much fun. The blue skies, the green blue water and you cant forget the rainbows!! I'm actually not looking forward to the cold cold winter months. I love the weather we are having right now and it should stay this way all year around. But, ya know..I can't have everything I want ;)

RSL and OneRepublic!

So for my birthday Emily got me tickets to the REAL Salt Lake vs. Kansas City soccer game last night.  Which also had an after game concert with OneRepublic.  I really enjoy watching soccer and OneRepublic so last night was really awesome for me!  Not to mention Emily came with me which made everything 100% better!  We were told when we were there that there were more than 19,000 people at the Rio Tinto stadium.  It was packed!  But so much fun!  If you've never been to a REAL Salt Lake game, I suggest you go. Here are some pictures of our awesome/fantastic night!!

Chris's Corner:

So today as I was riding the bus to work, a man got on with quite possibly one of the funniest things I have ever seen.  I realized as he got on that he had a backpack on.  His backpack was furry.  Wait!  That wasn't his backpack that was a dog hanging out of it, head, one leg, one paw, and all.  I couldn't stop chuckling to myself all the way to work.  It was seriously hilarious in a, may I say it, cute way.  Well, here's to all you who carry little dogs in your backpacks, keep it up!  You never know if it will brighten up someones day!

This weekend has been so much fun!! To start off Chris and I practically had all of friday off (Chris worked in West Valley from 8am-10a) I went with him so that afterwards we could go straight over to the Salt Lake Temple!! Chris planned the whole weekend! I was so excited to go to the temple. I've always wanted to go inside the Salt Lake Temple and now I had my chance! It was amazing! Everything is so beautiful inside and out. I hope everyone can see it one day, it is breath taking.

Then after the temple we were starving of course! So, Chris took me to Applebees where we ate some yummy lunch. I was kind of disappointed when our waiter said they were out of ice cream. How can a resturant be out of ice cream? haha but, I really didn't need the ice cream anyway.
Then we spent the night at my grandma's cabin in midway! We had lots of fun just relaxing and having a scrabble tournament! Yes, our favorite game is scrabble!! So, if anyone wants to play with us we will be very happy to. We also played E.R.S card game that I am totally horrible at. I kept making Chris play over and over because I just could not seem to win one game. After 8 games I won the last 2. Making the score 8-2. My luck must have ran out.

Chris's Corner:

So, Emily and I decided that it would be cool that on this blog I have a spare bit of space to share my ideas.  Here and there I will be randomly coming out with ideas of general interest, mainly to pass time away!  When there is something of interest to you, feel free to hop on and talk, debate, and if the topic is a heated one you can even fight for what you think is right!  Enjoy!

Can you say Cafe Rio homemade?

Yes!! I made our own Cafe Rio pork salads last week for dinner and man it was amazing!! They tasted so good! It is time consuming but so worth it in the end! I am loving being able to cook all sorts of different foods. And Chris says he will eat whatever I put in front of him. haha


We sort of, kind of invited ourselves on a motorcycle ride with the gang. Chris had never been on a motorcycle ride so it was about time we got him cultured. We had lots of fun, we went up through Heber and then onto Park City. At first I didn't think he liked the ride but, he might go again someday :)

Yes I did get married!! May 21st That was 2 months ago! It goes by so so fast. It has been so much fun. I love being married. It is so fun to have my best friend with me all the time! Our apartment is really cute. It's 2 bedrooms and 1 bath nice little kitchen. Oh! and I've decided I love cooking! I love trying out new recipes and having them taste wonderful! I'm so domesticated haha. We went to vegas on our honeymoon and it was so fun. We got to try 16 different coca cola's from all over the world. We went and saw phantom of the opera which was amazing. I highly recommend it!

So, I've been engaged for about a month now! And it has been fantastic! Chris and I are having so much fun getting ready for the wedding. I'm so blessed to have so many people wanting to help with the plans. Thanks to all of them!!
We went to color me mine the other day and made our first soup bowl together! It turned out really cute. (pictures to come)  We also found a place to live! It's called oxford square condos. It is over by the provo library. It is so cute. Of course its on the third floor so when I told my dad, he just started laughing because the last time I lived on the 3rd floor of an apartment he helped move all my stuff up the stairs. haha but hopefully, it wont be as bad since there arent as many stairs to climb.
