The Past Few Months....

I'm sure a few of you have noticed that I am really bad at updating our blog! But... I decided that today is a good day to do some posting. Jason and I have now been married for more than 3 months! We are seriously loving married life! It has been so much fun and we think we are very lucky. Well, of course after the wedding we went on a honeymoon! We decided to do a 7 day cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. We left for the airport pretty much from the reception and hopped on a plane to Florida at midnight! The 3 ports we stopped at were Nassau Bahamas, St. Thomas USVI, and St. Maarten. They were SO BEAUTIFUL!! It was so much fun, we loved every minute of it. We hung out on the beach, rode some wave runners, did some shopping, and just hung out. Of course we had a lot of fun on the ship too! Between Bingo, all the food & desserts we could ever want, and all of the shows and shopping, we had a pretty good time. If any of you have not been on a cruise, we HIGHLY recommend you go on one soon! They are a great way to vacation, very stress free. Here are a few pictures from the honeymoon...




Since being back from the Honeymoon we've been pretty busy working and getting ready to move for the summer again! (We're still not sure where we are going yet) There was Thanksgiving, which we spent at my Grandma's house in Logan, Christmas which we spent at my parents house, New Years which we spent at our apartment together, The Superbowl Party at my parents house, and Valentines Day, which we spent at home (I made Jason Broiled Salmon with a Honey Soy Glaze, and Shrimp and Cheese bites) and then we went to the movies.

There have obviously been MANY holidays and events that have taken place since I have blogged! Sheesh! And I very well may have forgotten some things! Anyways, I have recently become a pretty big fan of cooking! Weird, but I like it. I have been messing around trying out different recipes as often as I can. Its really fun making something that is somewhat complicated that ACTUALLY comes out good! Some of our favorites have been Better than Sex Cake-picture below and here is a link for the recipe (http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/163/21st-Century-Sex-In-A-Pan101352.shtml), Penne with Italian Sausage and Pesto Saucse, and Chicken tacos have always been one of our favorites. And of course I have started up scrapbooking again. I had been slacking off for quite some time now, and now I regret it because I have ALOT of catching up to do! I have also gotten into a little sewing if you notice the pic below (I made miranda a sleepover pillow case with a big pocket and some pj pants for her 13th bday) Jason has been really busy working and recruiting and training new technicians for the summer. We have both gotten into going to the gym more and being more active! It is working out quite nice :) In spite of being so busy we still find time to just hang out and relax with each other. So WOW that was long but that has been pretty much EVERYTHING we have been up to recently! I will try to keep this updated more regularly, but that is all for now! And now... here are some pics from these recent events!
