Romantic dinner by the fire

Yesterday, after I got home from school, Chris all of a sudden wanted to go CAMPING. We decided to go and packed up a tent, sleeping bags and some food to cook for dinner, as quickly as we could. We headed out toward Gila Bend, just about a half hour from our house. We didn't get there till after dark so started our fire as soon as we got there. We cooked up a yummy dinner of steak and potatoes. While we were sitting by the fire, we decided that setting up a tent would be too much work for such a short amount of time. We had done the most important parts of camping so after a few hours of ENJOYING the fire, we packed up and went home to our own bed. It was so fun to get away from the norm and do something different together.

I know I'm a bit late with my VALENTINES wishes but I hope you all had a great v-day! Chris and I went to a dinner party with a bunch of people from our ward hosted by the Dulgarians. We met up and were split up...the girls stayed back and made dinner and the boys left to go on a secret mission. Once dinner was done, we left to meet up with the boys. We ate a delicious dinner and then were entertained by the boys. They had all gone to Walmart with $5 and had to buy a drink to go with our dinner, something that reminded them of their wife and something they wanted to see their wife wear that night. It was so entertaining to see what everyone came up with. Chris bought me a bag of my fav candy (Reece's peanut butter eggs...WAY better than the cups. I'm always sad when Easter is over!) and a Marti Gras hat to wear. Here I am showing off my presents. After clean up, a few of us stayed behind and were chair racing. It sounds so WEIRD but it was so fun. We were in a corporate meeting room with lots of rolling chairs, it just seemed like the right thing to do.

This is Chris ready to race!This is the Jobs and Dulgarians racing, I wasn't able to get many good pics of racing, I was too afraid of being run over!
April, Raylene and IAfter that, we went to the Jaegers house for some games. We stayed till about 2am and had such a great time. We were all hurting from laughing so hard. It was such a great way to spend our Valentines Day. It was so great to get to know more people from our ward and we were so grateful for the invite. This morning I slept in till noon, I felt like I was 18 again...It was AWESOME!
To go along with my Valentines post, I wanted to share some pictures of my darling hubby! He is my bestest friend and I don't know what I would do without him. I've been going through some old pictures and found these. Hope you ENJOY!

What a cute little boy!
I just love these pictures of him. This trip down memory lane wouldn't be complete without a football picture.
My handsome hubby right before his mission. Doesn't he look so skinny and so stinkin cute!?!?
And of course the happy couple. Dang we look good!Snowboarding! We went snowboarding on our honeymoon. I was horrible at it. On my last run of the day, I was heading down the hill and started to fall. My boot didn't click into the board all the way so when I lost my ballance, one foot came out and the other when with the board and twisted. It hurt so bad and I was crying on the side of the mountain. Chris was so sweet to stay with me, even when I told him I was ok and just wanted him to finnish the run and then come back for me. It was a confirmation of what I already knew, that I had made the best decision of my life! This picture isn't from that trip but I still like it!
This is probably where our passion for karaoke started. This was after my brothers wedding in Seattle last year.
I have found TONS of pictures that bring back great memories and would love to post them all, but I'm sure that would bore all of you. I guess I'll save it for another day. Have a great week!

Check out the awesome deal we got on steaks! Bashas has top sirloin steaks for $1.99 a pound (normally $7.99). So of course we stocked up on them. We like to do a lot of grilling anyway, plus I've been wanting to freeze some cut into strips, already seasoned for quick fajitas or nachos. We spent about $54 and SAVED $162! Look how good these look. Make sure you go to Bashas before the sale is over!
