2 years. It just gets better and better.


I got all mushy and sentimental looking through old pictures. So there is a sort of an obsessive amount of us pictures ahead. What can I say I'm pretty head over heels. :)

People ask us a lot if we are newly weds, once we got past year one, I started saying no, it just seemed like once you're through that year, you don't qualify for that club anymore. But, people tell me we still qualify and I like that. I still feel like a newly wed and I'm glad other people think we are too. Since we're still in that club, guess that means we can continue to be all mushy-gushy and obsessed with loving each other.

He still makes me weak in the knees and my heart flutter.

Can't believe it's already been two years, can't believe that's all it's been.

Gar, "you own my heart and more til' the end of time".

I love you more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.


Happy Birthday to the most amazing man eva'

Happy Birthday (on Valentines day, fittingly because he's so sweet and love-y) to my handsome man. I never dreamed I could have such a perfect valentine. I love that we're best friends and that we're in this together forever. I always feel better knowing I've got you and you need me too. Happy 25(!) gar bear, I love you so much.

picture fest and ramblings.

I am sitting in the hospital waiting for the handsome man to get his gall bladder out and decided it was high time I put something on this blog. I have nothing really good to say so maybe just pictures or something.

For an update, after two weeks of a ridiculous and unnecessary (and maddening) amount of pain and drama (sleepless nights and days in the E.R., hospital, and doctors offices) some doctors, who actually had their acts together, are putting gar out of his pain and misery and taking his dang gall bladder out. It's about time. That's what I have to say about that. We are happy to just get it over and done with and move on with our happy little lives sans the enemy who was el gall bladder. How dare his body turn on him!

Unfortunately I have neglected this blog too long to really do a sufficient update without seven pages long of writing, which really, let's be honest, no one cares about. So...some highlights maybe?

November-- My birthday, Sprinkles was added to our family and it was a little bit of a rough ride at first but we love her to pieces and who doesn't love to come home to something that is so excited to see you it wizzes a little? That's love.

Sprinkles is now about 3.5 pounds and a fuzzy wild little thing. She is totally my match. We kind of constantly have battles over who is really in charge. In some ways I kind of think she is a little my personality in dog form...wierd to say? Really, the pooch has got attitude. I am very proud to say she can now sit, lay down, roll over and shake. Wahoo! cutest thing ever. I'll have to get some video up.

Then there was Twilight:New Moon. And it was a great group date to Terra Mia and then the movie madness. Maybe Rachel and I ran to beat people. Maybe.

We spent Thanksgiving with my brother Seth's family in Irvine California. It was so beautiful, warm, yummy food, great to be around family and the beach again. How I've missed them both.

I basically took no pictures after this point. I don't know why. I suck at it I suppose, or maybe they are just still on my camera, I'll have to get on that...

December: Christmas. Derrrh. Lots of awesome awesome gifts and sprinkles even got into the fun too. SO fun. Then we moved to Salt Lake! Wahoo! Very fun. I got hired on at my internship and am now a career woman. Ha. But I am very excited and happy about the new job that is actually a real job and to be working in something I studied. It's been awesome. We love Salt Lake and can't drive anywhere with out saying "oooh! look at that place, we've got to try that, or we should go, there's so many cool things to find up here." It's fun. Some of the best parts about the new place-- TONS of space! YAY! (not near enough closet space though. boo.) and a fenced private back yard! Sprinkles is in heaven and especially us too, no more having to stand out in the freezing cold with her.

January, we made no resolutions. I've never really been into them and I feel like we are making new goals weekly as it is and I like that. Just taking it about a week at a time. It's easier to work towards bigger goals that way. We had a great 2009 and are excited to see what 2010 will bring with our new address and new little fur ball and Gar being close to graduating etc. etc. We have done lots of fun things but I can't remember them right now. No sleep this week= brain not working.

February will bring (no gall bladder): Gar's 25th bday! Yay! We can rent a car for so much cheaper now!!! OUR 2 YEAR anniversary! INSANE right! Very exciting! Hopefully I will actually blog about it since I never did our one year any justice.

Sweet little monster waiting to go piddle

Sprinkles' first snow! Look at her plowing through it unphased!
Thanksgiving was spent in sunny and lovely Irvine, California.

Friends dinner at Cafe Rio. Crappy picture, but the only one I had with all. Good times.
Oh then there was twilight! And that handsome man was happy to be there too. (maybe he's read all four books, but don't tell I told.)
The giggly girls.
Oh Rachel, this was way too good not to post. Is this your vampire face to lure in Edward? Irrestible, definitley!
Oh little baby bear cub. She was so tiny!!! and So cute and Naughty. We just can't get enough of her!
Oh, that little baby bear cub fur kills me!

Remember, be good to your gall bladder, lest it turn on you too!

p.s. what do you think of gall stone earrings? Morbid? Earth friendly? A good reminder to lay off the fries? Hmmm.

Gar and the Gall bladder

What? I'm posting? It's true! but nothing good or exciting, I'm just losing my mind with anxiety and needed something to distract me.

When it rains it poors.

but I'm grateful for tender mercies and the umbrella a loving Heavenly Father always gives me.
Even if it does have a couple leaks, I think he keeps them there to keep me humble.

Pray for us please? If anyone still even reads this blog (and I certainly don't blame you if you don't, I wouldn't) we could really use them.
