Happy Thanksgiving

Well another Thanksgiving has past by. This year was so fun. All the siblings came home to Arizona to celebrate. For Garrett & I, our Thanksgiving adventures started with a nice extended drive through LA. It took us 9 hours to make a 6 1/2 hour drive. Kill me now. Then on Thanksgiving day a bunch of us did the THANKSGIVING TURKEY TROT. After a long run we then ate two Thanksgiving dinners. It was such a fun weekend of seeing all our family and being able to spend time with one another. The highlight for the guys was the playing XBOX 360, band (I don't know the proper name for this game). My mom got this game for us. There were drums, a guitar, and a microphone to sing with. It was really fun. The boys really got in the 80's rock mode by rolling up their pants, and taking their shirts off.
Well, on Friday all the girls went shopping, of course. Then that night Garrett flew to San Jose to be at Tom Swapp's wedding. Congrats Tom and Ashley. Overall this Thanksgiving was very memorable. It is such a nice time of year to sit back and really think about what were thankful for. I realized how truly grateful I am for Garrett for all the love he has for me. I really don't know what or where I would be without him. I love my family and am so grateful that we all were able to be together.

Wow 6 months...

Well this Monday, which happened to be on my moms birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM, was our 6 month anniversary! I can't believe how fast that went by. I remember being at Carli's wedding and Rachel was telling me that it was around their 6 months. I remember thinking, wow that seems so far away for us. I can't believe you have been married for that long already.

Garrett, being the amazing husband he is surprised me with Jimmy Eat World tickets. We went a couple of weeks ago to celebrate. He knew I would start trying to ruin any surprise he had if it were closer to our anniversary. He first had my boss send me home from work early. I thought I was in trouble or something. Then when I got home Garrett told me to get dressed up and we were out the door. He took me out to eat at the Cheese Cake Factory, and then headed over to the concert. The concert was awesome. It was kinda weird not to have a Mesa reunion though. Usually those concerts are made up of all Mountain View Toros! To finish off our Anniversary, on Monday Garrett came home with a bouquet of flowers, with 6 roses in it. I love Garrett so much. Being married has taught me a lot about myself. I see now how truly blessed mine and Garrett's life is being able to be sealed forever. I love you

The new Jimmy CD is good. My favorites are #3 & 9.

Oh within this slide show of pics I put our Halloween ones in. Enjoy!!

Turkey Trot Anyone?

Does anyone want to do the turkey trot with me this Thanksgiving? I really want to do it and I have talked to a couple people who are doing it. I'm just putting this out because its November 2nd and wanted to give everyone enough time to prepare. The run is a 10k which is about 6 miles or so. The race is on November 22, Thanksgiving morning at 7:00 am. The website is below so you can register early if you are interested. I think it will be so fun, and we get t-shirts. Who doesn't like getting new t-shirts? We have 20 days to get ready.

Happy Halloween

Wow, I can't believe that Halloween just passed by. It feels like I was just in Utah, dressing up as Salt and Pepper with Garrett last year. This Halloween was a lot of fun. It was kinda weird not to see snow but I was definitely ok with that. This year we are trying to set up traditions. We started by carving pumpkins together. That was a lot of fun. I carved Franken Stein and Garrett carved a Pirate. We supported our ward at the annual trunk or treat shin dig. Finished it off on Halloween, by wanting to pass out candy, but we didn't have a single trick or treater, and watching scary movies. This is such a fun time of year. I did see one tree with yellow leaves; I guess fall here is a little different than Utah. I hope everyone had a fun Halloween. Sorry I don't have any pics, I left my camera at home. I am out visiting my mom in Az for the weekend. I ll post some when I get home.
