Winter Break!

Winter Break was a nice break for me and I was so glad to be done with finals and classes. Jeff was in the middle of the busiest time of year at work so he did not get to enjoy the two week break like I did:

Cauley (Jeff's brother), Jami and their kids stopped by for a weekend on their way to Idaho and it was so fun to spend time with them! I don't have any pictures from their visit...slacking...

Two of our friends got married over winter break and their weddings were a blast!

Waiting for the happy couple to come out.

We had a busy time right before Christmas and we were still able to enjoy our first married Christmas!!

 Christmas morning

My family came up for Christmas and stayed for a few days. We went shopping, sledding, did lots of visiting, and had so much fun! Because of a winter storm, they ended up staying a day longer than expected which I don't think anyone was complaining about. 

We had a great Christmas and are so excited to use Jeff's days off of work from the holiday madness to go home next month!

More Married Life

Even though it is January, we had so much fun this fall so I thought I would share. I went back to school for my last year of classes! Jefferson went from working in Bountiful to working in Spanish Fork. We love the drive (by we it is mostly Jeff but I like having him home sooner too). Shopko pictures to come...he usually leaves before I am even awake so I will work on getting a picture of him before work. Here is some more of our life:

We didn't know what to do with all of the cards that we got and we needed some "homey" touches for the apartment

Next came my birthday! I felt so loved by friends and family. Jeff took me to Olive Garden for dinner where way to much food was eaten (thank you never-ending pasta bowl).

We went through a hot dog eating phase and one time I may have left them in the oven a little too long...

While the weather was still nice, we drove up the canyon and had a picnic. It was also the part of the canyon where we got engaged which was a lot of fun.

We Finally Have a Blog!

After almost 6 months of marriage, we FINALLY have a blog. Hopefully now everyone can see what's going on in our lives and all of the fun that we are having! I will just do a quick overview of what has been going on the last few months...

We got married!! August 6, 2010

And yes, it was really hot

Then we went to Sedona

Before finally making it back to Utah

                                                Our first married purchase!

We have been having so much fun and are loving being married. School and work are keeping us busy but luckily we still have time to hang out and spend time together. I can now officially recognize Skip Bayless and Jeff has seen all the new episodes of Bones. Match made in heaven!
