Calling all who want to be inspired...

...i know i sure was. I know a lot of you who are here in Provo are familiar with the story of Stephanie Nielson and her long road to recovery after being in a plane crash last year. Go here and get the whole story. I read it last night and can't stop thinking about it. Stephanies blog is also amazing. Read read read read!

P.S. the photographer who has been documenting Stephanie's recovery is a good friend of our ad program at BYU. We have been helping him with some ad and promotional ideas this last semester. Visit his blog here. He is awesome.

In High Demand

After several offers and lots of praying and wondering, Chris accepted an internship with the Florida Marlins for the spring/summer! We are so excited to explore some where new! Chris will be a player development intern working in Jupiter Florida on the baseball operations side of things. He will have a bunch of new responsibilities that will make the internship a lot more like an actual job and some pretty sweet benefits. I'm so excited for him and proud of what a hard worker and driven person he is. Congrats babe and with all this snow, thank you for being wanted somewhere by the beach!!

We are still alive!

Hi all!
Wow, life has been so crazy over the past month! Chris and I went to California about 3 weeks ago to visit my Grandma and see the San Jose Sharks cream the Colorado Avalanche (extremely good times:). We also hung out on the beach one day and spent Halloween night watching little kids in downtown Los Gatos run around. It was so fun to go and to be able to take a little break.

When we got back we hit the ground running. Chris has been busy working as a sub at the MTC and finishing up an online class that he needs to graduate in a month and I have been slammed with advertising projects and a certain contest called L'Oreal Brandstorm. My team and I made it to the campus finals and have been running around like crazy trying to get a 12 minute presentation and product design done. Along with about a million other little details. We present December 1st for L'Oreal and some Diesel people (that was the brand we had to storm) with 4 other teams. The winner goes to nationals in New York sometime next spring. We have had so much fun doing the competition and realllllly want to win! Wish us luck!!

In other news:
-I'm a baker. Somehow I can't stop baking now! Sometimes I'll make TWO things in one day or at the same time...
-In-N-Out opened in Provo. Wow, the drive through line is always about 50 cars long and the inside is packed 24-7. Justin was nice enough to treat us to some on opening day. DE LISH.
-We leave for Colorado today or tomorrow for Thanksgiving. Really looking forward to the break and some fun times!
-I found a very part part time job working a couple weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas at Christmas Tree Lots. Haha! I'm way excited! Our landlord's dad owns a bunch around here and so I will be cashiering for them. Should be a fun way to get in the holiday spirit.
-I have gotten Chris hooked on Greys Anatomy. Haha! He loves it! We have started back at the beginning of the show and are slowly working our way up to the present season. It's really fun.
-Chris and I teach Gospel Essentials/Principles in our ward. It has been really fun so far! We get to team teach, I bring treats, and our small class always gets into great discussions. Sidenote-our ward is awesome and we are loving it!
-We may know soon where we will be going after I graduate in April! It's still pretty up in the air but we have some options that are coming up. We're really excited to go somewhere new when our time here in Provo is done for a whole new adventure. I've been busy looking up ad agencies in potential cities that I could do my internship at.
-We have loved dinners that I have made from Dream Dinners. That place is a lifesaver. Such yummy food!

Hopefully all of the craziness will die down at least a little bit as school begins to wrap up for the semester and I get done with Brandstorm. We are having so much fun being married! Life is so good:)

Two Whole Months

Coming out of the temple! We walked up the stairs with Elder Nelson!!

My homegirls:)

Cutting the cake...I seriously only got a bite! The reception was so fun but such a blur.

Leaving the reception to a bunch of bubbles.
The last two months have been so amazing. We have been able to grow together and share so many fun times. Our families have helped us out so much and been so great. We are having so much fun being married! I love you Chris!

P.S. I want my wedding pictures. Kind of a ridiculously longggggg wait, right????

the kickoff

Well here we are in the couples' blogging world. Chris and I have been together for a little over a year and a half and just got married about a week and a half ago! We are loving being married and feel like everything is so natural and normal as a continuation of our relationship.

We've been really busy with setting up our apartment and starting school but had time for a fun little honeymoon vacation down in Cancun Mexico.

We feel so blessed to have all of you in our life and so thankful for all you do and have done for us!
