Happy Turkey

We had so much fun this Thanksgiving. We definitely did the typical three day weekend. We ate, slept, shopped, ate, ate, slept. We went to Valencia and Garrett's entire family was there. It was so much fun!

Ordinary Day

So I have this problem. My problem is that when ever I see anyone who looks familiar to me I automatically smile and say Hi. Then after I walk away and realize how I knew that person I realize that a smile and saying hi wasn't the best thing to do. This problem has gotten me into a lot of awkward situations.

So today I am at the gym doing my thing and I see someone I recognize, and naturally I say hi and smile. Then as I walked away I realized who it was. It was...

Chelsea Hightower from, So You Think You Can Dance.

I did a double take and it was her. We were doing abs by each other. She does a lot of abs. That is all I said to her because I felt stupid. Anyways, I thought that was pretty exciting for just a typical day at Golds Gym.

Date Night

Garrett was home. I say was because he is gone again for another week. We had so much fun together. You really start appreciating every second you have with each other. We started our Monday by sleeping in. Then we ran some errands, went to lunch, and just hung out. We went to the new Smith's Marketplace that just opened down the street. They had a deal where you could buy 10 cereal boxes for $10. It was pretty sweet. So basically our food storage consists of cereal. I least I'm starting it right.

Here are some pictures of our day and night last night. We went and ate at the Pie, and then went and saw the new 007 movie. Pretty sweet movie. I recommend you watch the last one so you understand this one. I forgot what happened in the last 007 movie so I was asking Garrett a million questions.

Our View

Duke Loves having a yard. He will just go out and sit in the sun.

Moving to Utah has been some what of an adventure. Already I have been in a huge snow storm that left like 4 inches of snow in my backyard, and then had to try to shovel a little spot of it so Duke could go to the bathroom. The snow was over his head and he was terrified of it.
While I am going about my everyday life running errands or just dong whatever it is I do in my days, I have been observing different things. I been creating this list in my head of the differences that I like and dislike about living here and living in California. This is my list:
1. It is nice talking on my phone in the car without using an ear piece or putting it on speaker phone. Cali has a law against talking on your actual phone without an earpiece. This law resulted in a lot of people using their speaker phone and holding then to their mouth to talk. It was a pretty funny site.
2. I love not having to base my day on the traffic.
3. I love that the only time there is traffic in Utah is if someone got pulled over, or a car is pulled off to the side of the road and everyone slows down to look at it.
3. I love seeing LDS billboards.
4. I noticed all really nice, nice cars in Utah usually have stocked rims. (not saying that is a bad thing, just on observation) Unlike Cali where the rims come first.
5. Horrible driving in both places. One place is supper fast crazy, while the other has slow stupid drivers.
6. Seeing a million church steeples not even 1 mile apart from each other.
7. Seeing gas well under $3.00

That is my list from this past two weeks.

I am working back words now. Today being Sunday I wanted to share what we use to do on Sundays. Every Sunday Garrett, Duke and I would go down to the dog beach and hang out while Duke played around. We would get on our bikes and ride down. It was so fun. Here are some of our last pictures in Huntington.

It been a long time...

I know it has been a long time since I have posted anything. I have a little more time on my hands now so hopefully I can keep up.

OK what have we been up too?

Well, We loved living in Huntington Beach. Garrett loved his job and I loved mine. We were both really busy. I worked for a Chiropractic office and helped out in the Marketing department. I learned a lot and loved everyone I worked with.

About a month ago Garrett got a new job. He started working for a company called Stores Online. So we packed up our house and left the beach to come to the freezing land of Utah. We are living in Traverse Mountain and looking around to see where we want to live. Pretty crazy month for us. I have been here now for almost two weeks. I have never been colder.

I am excited though. I love change and this is definitely a big change.

If any locals have any good ideas on where to live let me know. I go exploring all the time.
