This Weekend...

We had a fun weekend. My very obliging and adoring husband took me to see this:

Which was amazing. The story was so precious and the clothes were To. Die. For.  Travis even liked it, I am sure he would have liked Bounty Hunter better, but he is a sweetheart and enjoyed it all the same. After the movie we decided we needed a little trip to Barnes and Nobles to see if we could find some good biographies on these two lovebirds, Victoria and Albert. Sadly, they were all sold out :( but I did snag a great biography that I am enjoying about Audrey Hepburn.  So far its very interesting, and I would recommend it. (Disclaimer: please do not take my recommendations too liberally, if you hated either of these, I am not a professional and am in no way affiliated with Oprah Winfrey.)

Anybody else have any good book suggestions?

Within the mix of this we ate at our favorite El Ranchito, cannot get enough of their chips and salsa. Had a fun bbq at our house for the BYU game with Travis's mission friends (sorry no pics), ran lots of errands, church, gym, lots more good things which I won't bore you with...BUT I will bore you with this. I got a new job. I start tomorrow (so my week of sleeping in till 10 and hanging out all day with Travis are sadly over) but I am excited and kind of nervous. I am working for a company called ZYTO doing event planning/ executive assisting. The best part is that I won't be driving 2 hours or more to work and back everyday. I think it will better my sanity and my tolerance for Utah drivers.

Also,  we ordered this blue beauty:

10 - 14 days cannot come fast enough.

St. Patrick's Day one day late!

Travis has class late on Wednesdays. I forgot this when I went to the store Monday to buy my ingredients for our First St. Patrick's Day Feast, which happened to fall on a Wednesday. Oops. So I am making it tonight. Corn beef and cabbage, potatoes, carrots, rolls, you know the meal. I LOVE this meal! Travis hasn't ever had it before and he is a little bit scared for tonight, but willing to be a good sport for my sake. Lets be honest just the words corn beef and cabbage do not sound all THAT appetizing.

This will be my first attempt at making this so wish me luck! My cooking skills are set on beginner mode but I am determined to become some version of Julia Childs all the while looking as cool and calm as Giada De Laurentiis and as funny as Paula Dean in the kitchen. You know, just the usual domestic goddess, no big deal right? Right.

Busy Bees
Watch this if you need a little Monday pick me up!

This week has been full of all sorts of crazy. Travis has been doing a ton of school work and writing paper after paper like the brilliant student he is. I have been sick, quit my job, started my adventures in learning how to cook, and am now finally getting to the millions of thank you cards I need to send from the wedding! We bought a bbq last weekend and have used it twice already and thank you for the beautiful weather we will use it much more this week! We love it! Rachael Lynn Rylander now Olsen had a beautiful reception in Salt Lake and she looked just smashing in her sexy retro inspired dress! Natalie and Becca thank you for a wonderful girls dinner and the dear sister Janessa spent some time with us this weekend receptioning, anthropologizing, eating salmon and making cupcakes. We were asked to give talks in our new ward yesterday and after many attempts of telling Travis I was dying and couldn't go to church, he convinced me otherwise and we lived to see another day. This week is all about finding a new job, getting back on the beastly horse called the gym and spending some quality time with my hubbie. Thats it for now my friends! Peace and blessings, peace and blessings!

The Nest

We have a LONG way to go with decorating, but I thought it would be fun to put some pictures up of our little home so far. Some family have been asking. Please excuse the bare walls and other non- accessorized parts of the house, its a work in progress!


Travis and I had such an amazing time on our honeymoon in Kauai!! We got to stay at a beautiful Condo on the beach,(Thank you Kristy and Kevin) went zip lining, explored beaches and forests, went on a sail boat, got couples massages on the beach, enjoyed an exciting luau and ate out at some delicious restaurants (I love to eat)! It seemed like we just got used to being in Kauai when we had to go back to the airport for our flight home! It was a perfect, relaxing and fun adventure that we will never forget!
