Long Time, No BLOG!!

It has been a very long time since I've updated this. I've been so busy with school that I haven't had time to do much of anything. Yes we are alive and well, just busy. Chris just started back at school this month too...a job benefit for him. So today I had a few extra hours so I'm updating you all with whats been going on. This is going to be a very long post so make sure you make it all the way to the bottom. Hope you enjoy.


I always tease Chris about wanting to put make up on him but of course, he never lets me. So on Sunday, I took advantage while he was napping. Hope you enjoy!!

I would like to introduce you all to Christine!


Jen told me about this farmers market in Mesa that is SO AWESOME! Its on Main between Greenfield and Higley, I think. I've only gone once and I'm sad that its so far away. I got all of this....

.....for only $20!!


A few weeks ago, we went to Utah for one of our cousins wedding. We had so much fun! Because of Chris's new job, he can't take time off for a few more months. So I went up a day earlier than he did with his sister and her husband, Jen and TJ. I was cracking up with them the whole time..a little too much. So much, in fact, we missed our flight! It wasn't totally our fault though. Our flight was supposed to leave at 4. When we got there, we were told it had been delayed till 5. So we went to go eat but stayed close by. We went back to the gate before 5 and waited for a while. I eventually asked the guy what was going on with Salt Lake and he said it would be just a min. So we continued waiting. Eventually the plane started leaving and again asked the guy what was going on and he basically told us not to worry and pointed at the plane so we figured they had to move it for some reason. We again, we continued to wait. After a while he started to walk away so again questioned the status and he told us it had left! I don't understand why he didn't tell us it had already boarded when I asked him about it the first time! He said they called our names but none of us ever heard them. Long story short; they put us on another flight and we made it safe and sound. We had tons of fun being away. Jen and TJ were so good at taking care of us...knowing all that we had to spend on fixing our cars. Jen even bought me a new purse and I totally love it. It was a very early bday present. The coach outlet was having way too good of a sale to pass up. She was WAY TOO GENEROUS but I am so grateful and love it. The wedding was beautiful and I love being able to go to the Salt Lake temple. It was great to spend some time with the fam, especially our nieces. They are too cute and so funny. I love that they let me take so many pictures of them. If I get my camera out, they pose over and over again saying, "do a picture of me doing this!" over and over again. I got so many pictures of them, it was hard picking my favorites to post. So, be prepared for a total picture overload. Jen and I both get really camera happy...especially when we are together! They kinda got out of order when I uploaded them, so bare with me.

Kaitlyn eating dinner...I have a lot of dinner pics, but they are pretty cute!


I KNOW Laurie is going to hate me for posting this one but its too funny to pass up. This is us showing off our "Utard" hair. I'm so good at ratting!This is us at the Lion House after the sealing. Jen went to the bathroom and practically came running out saying she had found the greatest spot to take pictures.... We got a little carried away and I swear we took probably 30 pictures here. Thank goodness for timers on cameras! The happy couple! doesn't her hair look great?

Here's my sexy man!

Me and Robyn!

The boys getting tired of pictures.

Love you, Jen!!!

Another dinner one. (don't worry, there are only a few more're almost there)

Here we are on the chairlift at the Apline slides.And getting ready to go on the coaster

And last but not least, Chris and I after the coaster.

I apologize for the lengthy post, I didn't realize how many pictures this was.


We have gone to Jen and TJs a few times to go swimming and have so much fun with them. I took several pictures, but my camera was taking weird pictures and this was the best I could get. I'm so lucky to have great in-laws and especially lucky that they have a pool!


We have had so many car problems this year. And not just one car but all three at the same time. I'm not gonna go into all the details but just know that it has sucked bad. Just so you get an idea....
After spending about 7 hours at the mechanic, I spent some time with my good friend, Lauren, who tortured me. She does laser hair removal and skin care treatments. I love her to pieces but its never a pleasant time in her salon!!! (Totally worth itthough!)

Show Low

For Memorial Day weekend, we got to head up to Show Low to stay with some friends at their cabin. It was a great escape from the heat and went by way too quickly. We tried going fishing but had no luck. The best part of that was stoping for fry bread...twice! What can I say, I'm just a fat girl who loves to eat!

Here's Chris playing pool and acting like a pro.

Since I'm SO not good at pool, I did what I know best...
