Marriage:Year One

“I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.” -Rita Rudner
So we made it. The first year is over and let me tell you. it was NOT the easiest year ever. We had our ups and downs and then we had our really big ups and downs. It's funny how the person you love the most is the person who drives you the most crazy. Everyone told me the first year would be the hardest, but thinking about it...this is harder than having a baby? or harder than having a toddler and a baby? or seven kids?? Maybe i should be grateful for the quiet times or the take off on a dime abilities. For now i get all the sleep i need and not many worries. I'm sure i will look back when babies are screaming and the mortgage is due and relish the first year. But for now...second year, here we come. (Pray for us not to kill each other.) LOVE YOU BRIG!

Christmas in California

Christmas was great this year. i was so glad to be out of the freezing winter of Idaho and go to the still kinda cold weather of Bakersfield. We pretty much did nothing the whole time we were there which was GREAT! Just spending time with family and my adorable niece and nephew who i "ABSOLUTELY ADORE" (name that movie Candice). it was so nice seeing my family and getting away for a while. We also got to stay in Vegas which was super fun. When you are married and Mormon, Vegas isn't too exciting so mostly we stuffed our faces and watched TV. all in all, a good vacay. it had it's not so lovely canceled on account of no identification(sounds like our wedding.) but we pulled through(close call though) an decided to go to Vegas instead. There will always be boats to gain 10 extra pounds on right? hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and new year. Welcome 2010!

Our Very cute Purple Christmas Tree
(Brigham's not a huge fan of themed trees each year, but hopefully he will be convinced. ideas on next year?)
Happy New Year
Brigham being a fatty. (alright we both buffets are killer)
