I Got Tagged by Melissa!

10 Years Ago:
Well, I was 11 years old and probably in the 5th grade. This was the period during my obsession with the Ewing twins and I was in Mrs. Kuchel's class. I played the violin but hated being in orchestra because I felt like a loser- but don't worry I was cool.=) I loved playing kickball at recess and my best friend was Alyssa Adkins, which I don't think Mom liked her too much. I was constantly turning down Michael Gordon. Once I told him I would go out with him for one minute over the phone. Wow, my problems were so big!=)

Things on my To-Do List today:
1) Go to Wal-Greens to buy granola bars
2) Finish work
3) Go to the Y
4) Make Dinner
5) Wrap up loose ends around the apartment
6) Wait for Dave to come home

What I would do if I were suddenly made a billionaire:
Well I would first put money aside to pay off med school debt. Then.... I would take a sweet vacation to Europe, probably a Mediterranean cruise. I would add a few clothes to my wardrobe, go out to eat and leave my waiter big tips and watch to see their faces, buy an SUV for later down the road, buy Dave some golf clubs that he desperately NEEDS, take my whole family on a vacation, go down to the soup kitchen or whatever place that is and give people money, visit sick people in the hospital and pay some of their bills, get my leg hairs lasered, go visit an African orphanage- There are so many things I would do I can't even think!

3 of my bad habits: Just three??
1) Procrastinating my blog work=)
2) I don't compliment people enough. I always think things in my head but forget to verbally say it.
3) I need to hang up my clothes after I change, because there always seems to be a pile by my closet

3 Places I have Lived:
1) Missoula, MT
2) Provo, UT
3) Milwaukee, WI

5 Jobs that I have had:
1) Janitor at DJ&A
2) Nanny
3) Waitress at Los Hermanos
4) Receptionist at BYU
5) Bank Teller

5 Things People Don't Know About Me:
1) I LOVE LOVE LOVE Peanut Butter- actually probably everyone knows this- I can just eat it out of the jar. Bad, I know.
2) I had appendicitis in the 4th grade while my parents were in Turkey.
3) I am terrified of snakes
4) I hate it when people leave their blinkers on.
5) I always have to sleep with a blanket over me- no matter what the temperature.

I tag.... Ashley!!

I really do blog...

Alright, so I know I have been a MAJOR slacker about this whole blogging thing, but I am going to be better I promise!! I actually really like doing it, I am just not savvy with it yet, but little by little I am getting to know the ins and outs of it more. So bear with me! If you have any tips let me know!!

March Birthdays!

March is Birthday month around here so we had a pre-celebration last Sunday to celebrate all three guys birthdays- Dave's is on the 29th, Jake's was on the 6th, and Judd's was on the 1st. Jill hosted it and all the cul-de-sac came to eat yummy cake and ice cream. It was a fun night- but it always is when we get together. Happy Birthday guys!

Me and my Birthday boy! He will be 25- crazy!

With my pals Jill and Haley

Happy Valentine's Day!

So, this was our first Valentine's Day as a married couple and it was so much fun! Dave woke me up with a present- a nice soft robe from V.S. It is so nice! I wear it all the time- it's so comfy! We then went our separate ways for the day and during work I got a visitor. Dave came to visit me with a BEAUTIFUL bouquet of flowers. They were so pretty. Then he sent me a nice note through the tubes in the drive-thru. He did such an awesome job. Then it was my turn. I came home and made a "romantic" homemade dinner. A heart-shaped pizza! It turned out pretty dang good and we had a great night and watched Sleepless in Seattle. Since it fell on a Thursday, we decided to go out on Friday. We decided to try Bonefish Grill. It was really good and we got the best salmon ever! Thanks for the fun day sweetie! I love you!

Honestly.... MORE SNOW!!!???!!!

February 6, 2008
So we have experienced our first winter here in Wisconsin and we thought the worst was over. We had sub zero temperatures for weeks-(20 degrees felt amazing)- we had a couple feet of snow and the city ran out of salt to keep de-ice the roads. Winter's coming to an end right? Wow, how we were wrong. In one day we got over 2 feet of snow. All the malls, banks (that was good for me!), grocery stores, everything was shut down. We have learned that people in Wisconsin might overreact with a "snow storm" but they got it right on this one. It was so crazy!
Don't let this picture fool you- we really are sick of the snow! We just try to make the best of it=)
All I gotta say is I'm glad snow is pretty.

I don't think the pictures do it justice, but I am standing in snow that is up to my thighs. And yes, it was still snowing.


We met up with our friends Ashton and Becca at Cyrus O'Leary's in Spokane on the way back to Missoula. It was so fun to see them again and they looked great! They even bought us our meal- we will get you back sometime guys! Thanks!
Happy New Year 2008!!!
The whole Christmas break was so much fun and we capped it off with a New Year's celebration at Levi and Heather's new house. Their house is so cute and we were a little jealous=) They provided great food and it was so much fun to spend time with Dave's family. Some didn't stay until midnight, but we toughed it out by playing many games of Rook with Levi and Bob- I got pretty good if I do say so myself=) Happy New Year!

Good job babe! That is what you call talent!=)

I was a little nervous waiting for the time to turn into the year 2008!!

We were so stuffed by the end of the night. That's what New Year's Resolutions are for, right?
