Girl Friends

What would the world be like without girl friends?! Last night my cute friend Becca hosted our annual HHS girls Christmas party at her adorable new house.  It was so much fun to see everyone and see how we've all changed over the past year and all the new fun things that are gong on in each others lives. Some of them are moving out of state for medical school, some are trying for more babies, some are working etc etc etc. I love these girls so much and love that we have all stayed close even 7 years after graduation.

The picture is sort of blurry darn it.  And we were missing Aubs cause she was sick ;(

Brekke, one of my best friends from high school came in town to visit her family too and it was so good to see her and catch up! It's hard to hang out when your friends live in AZ! I think my sister Meg should move back to AZ for Devin's school so then I can go visit both her and Brekke!

Brekke had the most gorgeous little baby boy named Jet 3 weeks ago and he is just so cute and yummy! Pretty much any one in their right mind would be baby hungry after holding that cute little stud.

Friends Christmas Party

 I think the chops are a good look!

Davis and I have had a group of friends that have been close to us since we were little.  Even with all of us growing up, getting married, moving to houses and having kids we have stayed so close and still hang out all the time.  We had them all over to our house for Christmas this year.  It was quite the party.  We had dinner, then Santa made a special stop with his cute little elf, then had an ugly sweater contest for boys and girls.  We had a white elephant exchange and then just stayed up till midnight talking and hanging out.  I love this group of friends so much and we love to hang out with them.

I am missing a few of the couples because I can't find their pictures but their ugly sweaters were great! Robyn and Cory P won the ugly sweater contest so woo woo for them!

Then we had Santa come pay us a visit! He was quite the witty Santa if you ask me.  And I mean if you recognize him...well I'm sure you do! ha ha ha Santa was good old Cort! And we can't forget his helper Callie the elf.

Didn't they look great! Thanks to all our amazing friends that made for a great night!

Festival of Trees

The festival of trees is seriously one of my favorite events of the year.  I always loved going to it when I was younger but over the past 3 years I have gained a whole new understanding of how amazing it really is.  Last year after Davis and I spontaneously bought a mini tree I was dying for the next year to decorate my own tree.  So this Fall I signed up and got accepted to decorate/donate a tree! I decided to do a smaller (4ft) one since the big ones are scary to do ha ha.  Plus the big ones are for more experienced people anyway. I got my acceptance in October and that's when the $$$$ gates opened! I totally went to Hobby Lobby and Quilted Bear like every day! It was so much fun!

The real fun of it all was the night of bidding.  Everyone gets way dressed up and you have two hours of roaming to decided which things you really want to try and get into a bidding war over. I was so nervous that no one would like my tree. Like I told mom the night of that if no one bid on it she would have too ha ha.  So Davis and I got there at like 5 and we knew the bidding for small trees ended by 7.  If you bid on something and wanted to make sure you got it you had to stand by it by 7:00 otherwise someone else could out bid you.  Another rule was who ever had their bid amount on the bidding card for a certain item had the chance to go into a silent bid against anyone else that had their bid on the card too- you just have to be present.  So of course I went sneakily over to my tree and watched to see if anyone was going to bid on it.  To my surprise there had already been two bids on it! The first one was by my mother in law, ha ha cute lady! Then the second was by this couple that looked pretty passionate about winning my tree. Like the wife was biting her nails and pacing around.... which made my day ha ha.  I mean heck of course I was going to be thrilled if someone wanted my tree that bad!  Then out of the blue this couple that was way way dressed up comes by my tree and the wife stops and turns to her husband to tell him to bid on it.  So he does.  I was dying in the background! A bidding war over my tree?! What the heck! The first couple sort of ran over to see what they bid and the wife started crying.  Like literally had red eyes and put her hand to her forehead and was shaking her head. So I'm like freakin in the background wondering how much the second couple bid.  So I sent Davis to do the dirty work.  Then I couldn't help myself so I caught up with him to see the amount. On the way I noticed the second couple were wearing badges that said "Executive Board" on them.  So wow um hello.  That's not intimidating at all.  Then I saw it... the amount... this number that made my whole night change.  The first couple bid $325 for it and the second couple raised the anty to $550!!!!!!!! I grabbed Davis arm and was digging his arms so hard he had to get away from me because I was hurting him.  We walked away trying not to seem obvious but I couldn't help myself. I totally started crying! Ha ha ha Davis hugged me and said "Babe its ok, its a good thing they bought it".  Cute husband.  I was crying tears of joy.  I was so worked up over the tree not getting chosen by anyone and to have two couples bidding against each other for it, let alone the executive board of the festival, was amazing! And I was shocked they were spending that much to have it! I was all worked up for like a half hour ha ha like hyper and giddy and happy all at the same time.  It's amazing how easily amused I am, sheesh!

So with all that talk here is the tree....
The front
 The sign which I loved.
 The Back

At the festival in it's spot! Row E. 
 The adorable "GRINCH" block letters
 This was the bidding night right after they bought my tree.  Yes I look haggard ha ha.. I was under a lot of stress OK. You really aren't supposed to stand by your tree either but I just couldn't help myself!

I can't wait for next year! I think I will decorate one again but then again I might not just cause it is almost more fun to save the money and put it towards buying something.  So maybe I will start doing an every other year type of deal. So fun!

Happy Thanksgiving

Yay the holidays are here! I can finally listen to Christmas music and not be the only wacko person out there.  I love when the holidays are here... everyone is alwasy happy.  This year it was a "firth" year for Thanksgiving so we spent it over at my Aunt Michelle's.  It's always a feast when she and Doug cook.  After dinner my family geared up for Black Friday shopping.  A few years ago my dad, callie and I started going to the Outlets for Black Friday.  The deals really aren't that great (unless you go to Old Navy, you can make a killing there) but it is complete chaos up there which we love to see ha ha. So needless to say the nieces and nephew made a haul this past weekend with the Christmas shopping.  Love it!

 We missed you Rog and Ash!

Black Friday Shopping!

Blah... Blah.. Blah... Surprise!

Well what can I say..... I totally missed blogging! So yes I am going to start blogging again.  I realized one night that I wasn't recording our life anywhere and blogs are so easy because you can just type up something really quick each day and post a cute picture here and there. When I said I wasn't going to blog anymore my sister Meg called to tell me how lame I was ha ha... well she was right. 

So onto funner stuff.  Not that much has changed since my last post ha ha.  We are just loving living in our new house.  It is A-mazing how quickly an entire house can look like my room when I lived at my moms.  Keeping a house clean is quite the project- so to my mom, you are amazing for always keeping our house clean when we were growing up!  Davis is done with school at the U in May 2013 so that is so awesome.  And we have some fun family trips coming up next year. But most importantly Christmas is only like 41 days away!  This year I did not put up Christmas Nov. 1 like I did last year.  I held out until Nov. 11 ha ha. Wow so much longer right.  So I have it all up in my house except our tree.  That can wait until after Thanksgiving.

Last night Davis surprised me with Christmas lights on the outside of our house.  I love it! Ha ha I'm totally converting him to being obsessed with Christmas and he doesn't even realize it.  For example last night I was cleaning our house and doing laundry (which I did like 4 loads-another appreciation moment for my mom) and getting some work done that I had to catch up on and I went to walk upstairs.  Davis was on the couch reading an article for school.  We have garland that has lights on it above our cupboards in the kitchen.  So I unplugged them just cause they didn't really need to be on.  Well Davis likes them on ha ha.  He was like, "Babe turn those back on, they help me read better"(which he says with his famous mischievous smile on his face)  ha ha ha ! I asked why and how and he said that he likes Christmas as much as i do.  I've always told him that Christmas just makes me happy all around.  Christmas music and Christmas lights make me happy even when I'm beyond ornery. Yep totally converting him.

Another thing I just thought of was we said goodbye to our good friend AJ Brey.  He left for his mission like a week ago.  He is like a little brother to Davis and I.  He is my little sister Callie's friend since they were little and he has always been a big part of our lives.  We will miss him a ton!

Our humble abode

We finally did it! Yay! We moved into our new house on Saturday August 18 2012.  We love it! Unpacking on the other hand we don't love so much.  But by now we are mostly unpacked and it is starting to look like a real house.  Decorating is overwhelming because I have no clue how color schemes and patterns are supposed to flow.  Owell we try right! Here is our new house...... woo!

Just some of the inside...

Our Bathroom
 The kitchen

 Guest bathroom

Davis mowing the grass for the first time... looks like grass from a rain forest!

And the outside....(the car is my in laws but we can dream right!)

We are ready for visitors!!!! :)

Also now that we are in our house and so busy with life I am probably not going to blog anymore.  It was fun for a year but it is time consuming and I feel guilty when I haven't posted in a while ha ha.  I know call me lame! But you bet I will still blog stalk all of you bwah ha ha! 

So adios my friends!!!

July's Activities

We have had a way fun couple of weeks lately.  It blows my mind how fast the summer flies.  Especially when you are having fun. I was going to have pictures of our house be my next post but we are actually only like 2 weeks away from closing so I figured it can wait.  The house has been such a fun process! It's kind of a bitter sweet thing to have it be almost done.  Call me crazy I know but it really is fun to see the house you designed slowly come together.  I love the colors we picked and all that... ok shut up already whit. Don't want to spoil the fun pics!

So we went up to Davis's condo in PC one weekend with our friends the Stewarts and Sivertsons to go mountain biking and shopping and all that great Park City stuff.  It was seriously such a fun weekend.  Mostly becuase our friends are such a blast.  We had a great time biking, eating, laughing, playing games and talking talking talking! Love this group!

Then we went to Island Park for the 4th of July with our family which was so much fun! We stayed in this gorgeous cabin on Bill's Island and went boating, four wheeling and walking... all the fun mountain stuff. They had a 4th of july parade on Bills Island and then had one later that night for the boats which was pretty cool.  The parade on the island ended up being just the Warnock 4th of july parade... little did we know they held the parade like 3 days earlier.  But we still got festivized and went around the loop to show all the cabins how cool we were! 

 Then we decorated the boat with red, white and blue lights and went on the lake for the boat parade.  At like 10 pm they did a huge firework show over the lake which was so awesome.

 Classic Zuir facial expression

Then we went to Yellowstone to see Old Faithful because I had never seen it. And of course there were some massive buffalo along the way.

 Davis has some serious hair goin right now.  But my man is just flippin sexy.  Heck he could be bald and still look hot!

Then we went on a four wheelin ride that was literally an all day activity.  Probably because we got lost and ended up on a highway with speeds of 65mph.  It was really funny and made for a great memory.
