Bridal Shower

We were up in Logan this past weekend because we had a bridal shower for Amanda. It was fun to get the chance to visit with friends and family of the bride-to-be. We had the shower at Carlys house, even though she was worried that there wouldn't be enough room and that everyone would come all at once, I think it turned out great! Thanks Carly for letting us have the shower at your cute house. :) There was also lots of yummy food including chicken salad sandwiches, brownies, lemon bars, a veggie tray and Carlys delish oreo truffles! Everything turned out great and I'm so happy and excited for Quintin and Amanda!

Diane and Holly - We also got news that Sharon is expecting her second. Congrats!!

These photos were taken before and after the shower. Here is a cute picture of Bethie. :)

Brittany and I

We also got the chance to spend some time with
Tim,Carrie and cute little Abbi. I got some really good pictures of Abbi and couldn't decide which ones to post. In these photos she is sitting in the middle of the floor watching Baby Einstein. Look how cute and check out the concentration on her face...haha!!

Here she is again. Look at her cheeks..she is so darn cute! It was funny to watch her because there was little breaks in each segment of the video where the screen would go black, and when that happened she would get all excited and clap her hands

I look forward to next weekend when Amanda will walk down the aisle. She will be a beautiful bride and Quintin will be so lucky to have her as his wife. :)

1 Year!!

Oh man..this is kind of a bittersweet post for me. It has been 1 year since I started weight watchers. Even though there have been times when I have struggled with my weight fluctuating (sp?) up and down so much, I will have to say that this journey has been worth it!!

When I started weight watchers I knew that I was in this not only to lose the weight, but to totally change the way that I eat. I also knew that this would be a life changing experience. I mean I'm not going to lie...but there are times when I have chocolate or I have a piece of pie/cake, but I also know that I have to get right back into it after I have that treat. I guess that Is a good thing, because I know that I cannot live without a piece of chocolate and I do have moments when I need it. But I also know that I can't do that ALL the time. Ok...I know I am rambling here...

Anyways...I am really glad that I started Weight watchers and I wouldn't change anything. I can't believe how far I have come and I know that I couldn't have done this without Bethie. Thank you Bethie for everything!! :) I look forward to another year of weight loss and reaching my goal!

Twilight perfume

Have you ever wanted to smell like Bella Swan? Well now you can...

HaPpY NeW YeAr!!!

WOW!! I can't believe how fast 2008 went! It seems like it was just January of last year. Why does time have to go so fast?

We spent time on New Years eve at my brothers house this year. We had a blast!! A couple of years ago, we were given fondue pots for Christmas. So on New Years eve this year we decided to get all the pots together for New Years eve and have ourselves a fondue party. :) Ohhh it was delish!! We had everything from chicken, lamb, shrimp, buffalo, beef and bread. We had several pots of oil going for the meats, but the bread was being dipped in a delicious cheese consisting of imported swiss and grier. Oh it was sooo good!! We also had a fondue pot filled to the rim with non other than....chocolate! Ah yes! I was in heaven..haha! We had different kinds of fruit to dip in the chocolate as well as some pretzels, which were my favorite. :) You really have to work for your food...haha but it is so much fun!

After a nice dinner, its always nice to just relax and enjoy each others company.
Here is Bethie, Lacie and Stacey
Colby brought his rock band over to play, so we had a little band going. It was pretty fun!
Here is Kim on vocals, Kasy on bass and I was playing the guitar.
Check out my concentration..haha!

Kasey on drums and Brittany was singing her heart out.

Big Colby and Little Kolbey were really getting into it. It was fun to watch.

Here is a video of the kids in action. Check out Kolbey and Colbys guitar playing. They are amazing. I think they should start a "garage" band. What do you think?

We ended the evening by counting down to the new year. Colby lit a few fireworks and we made some noise by banging a few pans. :) I look forward to what lies ahead for 2009. I hope you all had a Happy New Year!
