MAJOR CATCH UP

Well it's been so long since I've blogged, I've practically forgotten how. There has been a lot going on with Ryan and I lately. I just wanted to share what we're doing and share some pictures as well. First of all we bought a house back in November. Yes that's how big of a slacker I am. It's located in Provo right off of Geneva Road and we love our house. It's about 2500 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a double car garage. We have a big room that was added on above the garage before we moved in and we spend most of our time up there. It does need a lot of work but we felt it was the right house for us, and we're really excited to have our own place to fix up and live in. It has a pretty big back yard that needs a lot of work as well, but will be so nice once we get it fixed up. I've only taken pictures of the upstairs so I'll include outside pictures on another post. There is also a basement that we are just using for storage right now since it's just the 2 of us. But there's 2 bedrooms in the basement, the laundry room, another family room, bathroom and closets. We have done no work downstairs so I haven't taken pictures of those rooms either.

















Well to make sure this post isn't too long, Ryan also decided he wanted to get a puppy since we have a house now. He found a puppy on KSL and we've had him for about 2 1/2 weeks. His name is Rambo and he is a boxer. I told Ryan he could have a dog if he takes care of him and he has done really well with it. He's fun to play with and he is growing and learning everyday which is good because he was a nightmare the first few days we had him. But I am learning to love him. Well enough of the talking, here are some pictures of our house and our puppy.



I'll try to post more pictures as we get more done and I'll take some pictures of the rest of the house so you all can see what it looks like from the outside.

Nature

There was the most incredible lightning/thunderstorm this morning. I woke up about 5:30 am to the sound of thunder. As soon as I opened my eyes I saw lightning going off what seems about every couple of seconds. I layed awake for probably 10 minutes just listening. It really was incredible what was going on outside, I just had to look out my window. Seriously every couple of seconds I saw a bolt of lightning go across the sky. Some were so close to our house that the lightning would go and not more than a second later there would be thunder. It was really loud and I could feel our bed shaking. I'm not gonna lie, I was a little scared, but it was really quite amazing. This earth is such a fascinating place and I am glad we get to experience things like that every once in a while. I'm just glad I wasn't in the mountains!

Celebrations

Well last week Ryan and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary and also my 24th birthday. We decided we wanted to do something fun so Ryan booked us a hotel in Salt Lake and we stayed up there for 2 nights. We stayed at the Sheraton Hotel which was pretty nice and we really had a good time. We left Friday night after work and got to our hotel about 8:00. We ate dinner at the Skybox which is at the Gateway Mall. We really enjoyed the food. It was too late to do anything after that so we just went back to the hotel. Here's a picture of our room.



Saturday morning we went to Park City to do a little shopping at the outlets. I found some fun stuff for my birthday and we enjoyed just walking around. We ate lunch at our favorite place in Park City. The Main Street Pizza and Noodle. They make the best pizza so that's what we shared.





We went back to Salt Lake, did a little more shopping at the Gateway, and then headed down to Jordan Commons for dinner and movie. We ended up seeing Date Night and actually really enjoyed it (even though there was some really dirty parts in the movie). Sunday we went golfing. I that's not a good Sunday activity, but we really wanted to go. We had a really good time that weekend and we were really glad we could get away from home for a couple days. I wish I would have taken some more pictures, but I'm lame like that. It was tons of fun though.

Happy Birthday Ryan

Today was Ryan's birthday. He just turned 25! We had a really fun day. Ryan actually had to work this morning until about 2, so after that he wanted to go golfing. We golfed at Cedar Hills Golf Course and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. It was the first time we've been this year, so naturally we should have been rusty. I'm not good to begin with, but Ryan actually played well for his first time of the year. (Not to brag, but I actually made par on one hole, that's definitely a first.) After the golf we went and ate at the Bombay House. It's a fantastic Indian restaraunt and we recommend everyone should go. After dinner Ryan did a little a shopping and found some new shoes and a couple new shirts. I hope he had a fun day. I tried to make it special. Happy Birthday Ryan!!!!

"Celebrities"

For all you survivor fans out there, I just saw Tyson, who is one of the villains this season, walking through Harmons. You might not think that's cool, but I kind of do. I was gonna try and take his picture to post, but wasn't able to in time. I guess he's not really a celebrity, but it's close enough for me. I know he's a total weirdo, but it's really fun to see him in real life. Harmons has had a few celbrities visit. Lindsay Lohan walked by one time while I was working. Like I said, I really don't care for these people, but it's kind of fun to say you've seen them in person. I'm totally lame!!
