Utah From a Birds Eye.

This is a picture of our curent home, Salt Lake City. It is a beautiful city. I love the yummy restraunts and great culture events that are so close to us. We are so lucky to have lived here for a short time.
This picture is of the BYU campus! I just love it. So many great memories!

We will always love Provo! It is the most wonderful place to live, I hope one day to move back. I especially loved attending the University. I loved that the gospel was taught in all of my classes. It was wonderful to see how it influences everything. I know that Aaron enjoyed his educaton too, but we also love going to the football games together. Go Cougars!!

Aaron and I love the Draper Temple. Aaron took me to the open house for our 3rd date. It was such a wonderful night and about a year later Aaron and I would be married here. We love this temple. It will always be a favorite. Isn't it beautiful?!

Tomato-Basil Parmesan Soup

A special thanks to the BYU Alumni magazine for introducing Aaron and I to this wonderful soup! Here is the story. Aaron does not like soup but because this one was endorsed by BYU he was more than willing to try it. He found this picture, recipe and story in the BYU magazine and he wanted me to make it. So one day we made it and we both loved it! It is super easy too because it is done in a crock pot. I was surprised that it turned out great and looked just like the picture. I think it tasted better than Zupas (and that is saying a lot coming from me. I love Zupas!)

Soaring over Salt Lake Valley

Aaron, Dad and I all got up early Saturday morning to take a quick ride in the Cessna. It was a perfect day to go up. The fall colors were beautiful!

We saw all of Salt Lake City, the Draper Temple, 11589, my favorite school of all the BYU campus and Cougar Stadium!! It was such a fun morning and this was Aaron's first time up in Dad's plane. Aaron was a good co-pilot. Pictures to come soon.

Friends Lunch!

This is my sister Val and our long time friend Becca. We don't see eachother much but when we do get together we always have fun. We went to lunch at Zupas, one of my favorite restraunts and just caught up about life with one another. It was such a good time. Hope to do it again soon.

Hostess Cupcakes!!

"Now that's the Stuff!"
My sweet twinie buys treats all the time at the Big Lots across from her work. I never get to go because we work so far apart from eachother but this time she tried to share a little cupcake with me! She is so sweet, she even thought of Aaron too but gave me the bigger half.
One thing you should know about "the twinie's" is we love our treat. Aaron says it isn't a treat anymore if I am eating them every day but I would like to decide other wise. Treats are the most wonderful thing ever and I am so glad Valey shared her's with me today. Thanks!

Rainbow Brite Shoes

Rainbow Brite Shoes

I bought my first pair of "Rainbow Brite" shoes at Ross for $5.00. I know, what a deal! They have taken me to Santa Cruz, Carmel, Mamoth Lakes, Lake Powell, Towne Storage, and everywhere else. As you can see they have gotten a little dirty and worn out, but I still wore them because they were the best shoes. Well, Aaron found the exact same pair online for me and wahla, he ordered them for me and now I will never have to part without them. I am one lucky girl!

Mater our Jackolantern

This is Mater. He is our jackolantern. We just carved him with our friends last Saturday after the big game. Aarons job was scooping out the guts because I can't stand slimmy things on my hands and I got to carve the face. He is my favorite jackolantern that I have ever carved. We put electric candles in him at night so the wind doesn't blow them out. We love him! And I only stabbed my finger once.
