homemade advent calendar

Adam has been saying he wanted a chocolate advent calendar like the ones he had when he was a kid. So while he was at school I made made this for him. I looked up some ideas on how to make a homemade one and I came up with this design.


Happy counting down to Christmas!

cats and christmas

I love this time of year. It snowed all day! I'm glad it was Sunday so we could just hang out. We put up our Christmas tree and I made some delicious cinnamon cookies. It was so pretty out we decided to take some pictures of the temple. That's the nice thing about being so close, half a block walk and we're there.

The lights are so pretty. Sadly they keep cutting back so it seems like each year there are less and less.



I love putting up the tree!


mmm these are delicious. They are soft and chewy. Here is where you can find the recipe http://www.food.com/recipe/cinnamon-cookies-48241
Our newest addition.

Luna loves her. Hehe
The hairiest toes I've ever seen! She has tufts of fur coming out from in between each toe.

Lindsey and Ryders wedding

My friends Lindsey and Ryder got married and I got to be a bridesmaid! It was totally fun! She looked so beautiful. Isn't her dress amazing?! Only a size 2 could pull that off!
They were surprised when an awesome vintage car showed up to take them to their hotel. Too bad it overheated and broke down in the parking lot as they drove off. Haha it reminded me of our wedding, my sister left with the keys to my car after decorating it. We got to hang out with the clean up crew til she showed up.


MMMMM! Crepes and Peanut butter cake!
She looks so beautiful!

The queen of hearts and the mad hatter


OFF WITH YOUR HEAD! Halloween is so fun! Adam and I went to the Jorgensen family Halloween party and it was fun as usual.

Farkel party gets a little loud and crazy when Connie and I are playing.

St George Marathon

I guess I'm crazy cause I did it again. Adam, Connie, and Abby came to support me and we had such a fun weekend. We were able to stay in a friends condo down there, which was way better than last year when Adam and I slept for about 3 hours in the back of Connie's car. We got in late friday night so they didn't get much time with me before I was limping. The marathon was beautiful and is so amazingly well organized. It was hot! By the end I was melting! It was great to have family at the finish line. Thanks guys!
And this is the reward I got. Two huge blisters! I swear I didn't even know I had them until I took my socks off in the car on the way back to the condo. I said "oh, my feet are sore" so I had everyone's attention in the car. Adam, Abby, and Connie were staring at my feet as I peeled my socks off and I heard a horrified squealing from the back seat, then Connie said, "oh it's like a red gummy candy!"
I've never had blisters like these. I guess this is why they say break in your shoes. Mine were only a few weeks old.

Cruise with Melissa

Last week my best friend Melissa and I went on a Cruise! We went to Catalina Island and Ensenada! It was perfect timing since Adam has been studying like crazy for the boards. Here we are with Los Angelos and The Queen Mary in the background.

Catalina Island was beautiful, I would love to go back and spend a few days. We rented a golf cart and drove all around the island.







This is an old casino/theater. The architecture was amazing I loved the houses.




In Ensenada we went shopping for a few hours and called it a day. There wasn't as much to do so we decided to go back to the boat and hang out at the pool.








Party, party we would dance after dinner in the dining room. it was a blast here is a pic with our waiter.
It was so fun thanks Missy for keeping me laughing the entire time xox
