Happy Birthday!

Gary turned 23 on Monday! He is getting so old, he's been home for 2 years now... he could have served another mission. His cake is basically on fire, I think in the years to come will just have to switch to the number candles.
I thought it would be fun to decorate our kitchen for his birthday with BYU colors and also his favorite colors. He might too old for this type of thing but I had fun doing it and he said he liked it. (take notice of our 1070's kitchen...it's priceless, and don't take notice off the mess)

We had a few of his friend's over from high school and their wives...well at least those that could make it for cake and ice cream. Trent was SO kind to make sure I was in the picture, Monday's are rough. Lindsey, my sister, also came to join in the fun too. Andy and Maranda gave Gary our tools back for his birthday and Jon gave him a sports drink cup (that was free)... you really have to love poor college students! It was a great night and Gary has another year until he reaches 24!

One Year Ago...

One Year ago I met Gary and fell into a huge crush. I knew I wanted to go on a date with him so bad and didn't know if that would ever happen if I didn't ask him out myself. So against everything I ever stood for and what I was told never to do... I did... I asked him out on a date! Well, we decided to to re-live that date and ride the Full Moon ski lift at Sundance. This time it was a lot more romantic and less stressful.
I'd recomend the ski lift to anyone. It's so fun and just different than the usual bowling or movie dates!

Peach Days

This past weekend we went up to Gary's hometown, Brigham City, for the once in life time Peach Days event! Gary kept talking about how great and fun it is and that there is so much to do. Basically, it's a Carnival with the usual carni crowd...we just walked around and ran into a lot of Gary's old friends from high school. Gary had the standard peach cobbler to celebrate "peach days" and I just enjoyed people watching and seeing all the mullets! However, all in all it was really nice to get away from Provo and leave all the homework behind and just be a kid again.

I was really thirsty the last night so we indulged at bought a $2.00 soda... and that cup was the large. We compromised in buying it because we didn't buy tickets for the rides. The tickets were 10 for $10 or $1.25 for 1! We decided it wasn't worth it.
We finished up our Peach Days weekend by attending Gary's old ward Sunday. His parent's are moving the next week just a block and half and they are in a new ward! Utah is so funny that way.
It was a great weekend and now we are back to reality. SCHOOL,WORK, HOMEWORK...ect.

Labor Day Weekend

Gary and I went in and bought an all sports pass this year so we could enjoy the BYU experience. It was loads of fun... our seats are next to friends and family so they always help make it a great time. We were not expecting the sun to be SO intense... we burned, but it wasn't bad after a day. BYU won so we celebrated in the canyon with friends and made dutch oven peach cobbler later that night. It was such a great end to our day.
Monday afternoon we totally took advantage of our day off and the fact that it was raining. We didn't leave our little humble apartment until 2pm! We went to the Brick Oven for the Ofallon reuinon. It was great to see all my friends again that I grew up with and actually get to talk to them about life. Gary didn't really know anyone but there was pizza, enough said. I did all the talking.
Labor day needs to be the first Monday in every month. Gary started school today and his athletic training job with the baseball team and I already have homework up to my eyeballs...and my dad told me these are the easy days!
