Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Christmas was mellow this year! Whitney was sick during our entire Arizona trip and since I was with her 24-7 I started to feel not so hot on Christmas eve when I got home from seeing the grandparents. We put out jammies on as soon as we could, started a fire and threw in a movie. We got to sleep in nice and late! since we both didn't feel well opening gifts was a slow process. we ended up sleeping the entire afternoon while Christmas movies were playing in the background. We finally cleaned ourselves up and went to my dads house for dinner. As a tradition we always play a white elephant game... since most of the family was sick we played pretty fast and headed home for more sleep.

basically... we slept through Christmas and about 4 days after that! But it was still good to get to spend quality time with family and feel all the love around. 

New Years eve was so fun! Since I had been sick for a week and it always ends up being lame I had no expectations this year. Amanda invited to me to come to midway with some of her friends from cali, and I loved it. There were so many fun people and I loved hanging out with her friends. Tim and Trae, AJ and John came up with us and we all had so much fun!

I think 2013 is going to be a VERY good year!

Arizona and The Bears

We took a quick little trip down to Arizona. Thanks father for the tickets to game that inspired this little get-away! It was soo nice to relax and enjoy some warm weather, sunshine, and amazing food!
 me, whitney, sean, and seans brother-in-law chase drove town on friday morning, got to admire lake powell as we drove past. we ate at some really delicious places with such tasty food! Culinary Drop Out, R & R, a sushi place i dont remember the name of, and Blonco in Scottsdale. Im drooling just thinking about them! We also took some time wondering around old town looking in the little shops. The Bears game vs the Cardinals was really fun. It was so great to go to a game that they won! woot! We got to go in a special enterance and hang out on the VIP level, we even got gift cards with money on them to use so we didnt have to pay for any of the food at the game. it was amazing!
Poor sister was sick the entire trip, she was hurting real bad during the game so we left a little early to head home since we had to drive at least to Vegas and there was a big snow storm coming in christmas eve in Utah. once we got to Vegas we decided to drive all the way home and beat the storm. We rolled in around 2:30 and only had a little snow in provo but still got to wake up to a winter wonderland for the holiday celebrations!

the wonderful people who are responsible for me making it to graduation. without their motivation and support I could not have done it. 
Its seems so weird that I actually made it. I seriously doubted that I would ever make it to this day but I am excited that I did.  Now to just get a job.... and then what?

Hudson Barry

I just took a quick little glance over my last few posts, all I have to say is sorry! I've been so terrible about posting and have missed many exciting things! 
The most important missed post..... I finally got to meet my adorable little nephew. We are birthday buddies! Meaning, he arrived in style early morning on September 6.... MY BIRTHDAY! It was the best birthday I've ever had. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this guy.
Today was his blessing at our church. I can't believe he is 3 months old. 

Some of my favorite things about him so far:
1. His lower chin would shake before he cries when he was first born, now he snorts! It's so cute I can't even handle it.
2. He is so easy to tickle!
3. That big gummy smile he always has
4. I hope his eyes stay as blue as they are right now
5. The poor kid is so fowler, big cheeks and that butt back is coming in nicely, We just have those nice curves in all the wrong places....
6. He loves to bounce, ALL the time. Big, get your knees into it bounces. He's going to get me into shape!

I could literally list a million things about why he is so cute! I know, I'm obsessed! 


I love to cuddle with the little babe. So happy to have him in my life, he always makes me feel better after a long day at school!

....2 weeks until graduation!....
