The Past Month, or So...

So a lot has happened the past month. In December we celebrated 6 birthdays and our 2 year Anniversary (woot woot), we celebrated christmas and then New Years we spent playing Pirates Cove with Conryd, Aly and my mother in-law. We're not really the partying type.

anywho, I just wanted to post some pics over the past month that I've taken from my iphone that might be fun sharing. Oh and I've transferred all of my blog stuff from our previous blog to this one so if everthing seems a little out of wack, that is why....

Christmas morning at Tristins Parents house. It's a sea of presents!!

This is Dessi after playing outside in the snow for about 20 minutes. She kinda forms these snowballs in her hair that we have to blow dry so she doesnt wet everything in the house. She may look like a stupid dog but shes really quite adorable!

Flowers From Tristin

My birthday flowers from Tristin

This was taken on the 9th of January at about 5pm. I thought the moon was absolutely gorgeous and worth showing ppl!

Cayman, Baby!!

On Sunday, the 3rd of August, 2008, Tristins family and I flew on a plane to the awesome Cayman Islands. We arrived there about 8:30pm and were welcomed with a freak rainstorm that hit us a quick as it left us. Bebe decided to throw her clothes and diaper off to go dancing in the storm and roll in the puddles of water (I wish I took a picture of her doing her little rain dance now that I think of it). She's a hippie in the making :)

Monday, we all got settled in, swam in the pool, relaxed, read, and Tristin and I ant on a canoe ride out to rum point. I was also ableto finish my awesome book I was reading, Breaking Dawn! And to all the haters of that book, it wasn't that bad okay!
Tuesday we all went out to stingray city, played with the stingrays and then went to look for sea glass.
Today, Wednesday, we went out to snorkel by the reef where we saw a lot of fishies and an eel (ooh). Now we're just relaxing and enjoying our peace and quiet. That's when Tristin convinced me to do this blog, yay! So I hope that who ever reads this enjoys it. I've been meaning to start blogging a while back so now I'm glad I get to finally do it

On Thursday night, Tristin and I went kayaking in the bay with the glowing plankton. What was really cool was when you'd put your ore in the water and startle the fish, you could see them swim because their movements would cause the plankton to glow showing us exactly where they were and where they were swimming to. I tried to take a picture of it but unfortunately it didnt really work but we got an AMAZING picture of the moon, the bay and the milkyway of stars. Cayman is just magical. If anyone every has the opportunity to go, GO!! It's just paradise!

On Friday we went out to stingray city again and OH MY it was AMAZING! The stingrays were plenty, the tourists few and we had plenty of squid to feed them so they were hungry and desperate to eat. as we got in the water they literally just swarmed us. It was hard to not step on them because they would come to you at all angles and swim on you. I cant explain it well so hopefully the pictures will give you a better idea.

Here you can see the stingrays circling us. The darker, bigger stingrays are the females and are more friendly. You can actually hold them long enough to kiss them on the nose. The small, lighter stingrays are really mean and kinda whip you with their tails which are really scratchy. They don't really sting, they just startle you if you tough the tail.

Graduation July, 2008

So this is mine and Tristins first blog!! Woot woot!! I want to start off my blog by saying that last week I graduated from UCMT! Party on! And I finished my last clinic on Friday and then took the MBLEX and passed so now I can officially call myself a licences massage therapist. Unfortunately I won't be going to my graduation BUT no worries, I'll think about it when I'm chilling next to a beach In Cayman :) he he! Below are some pictures of my lastday at school with some of my friends. It was such am amazing day. I'm going to miss my class like crazy! (but I'm still glad to be done with school)

This is US!!

So this is us! Me and Tristin. We met on April Fools day in 2005 (it was a blind date too), got engaged on the 9th of August 2006, and got married in the Timpanogos Temple on the 28th of December, 2008. And I can honestly say that from the 2nd of April of 2006, Tristin and I have been with each other every day, except for two days, up until now. (those two days were when we broke up). Not that you really care but I think its pretty cool! So here's a blog to share our lives with you. We truely and honestly love living. There is so much to enjoy from life and when you have someone to share it with, it becomes invaluable to you. One of the reasons for me blogging right now is so that I can not only share our memories, but look back on the and remember them.

So hope you enjoy "us" as much as we do!

Here is a link that you can visit to look through our wedding book. We FINALLY designed it ourselves after almost 2 years of being married.
