Picture Update - Winter

Damien decided to change the light bulb like this.

We decorated our apartment for Christmas. This is our Christmas tree.

We visited Damien's family in Everson and my family in Spokane. My mom made dinner one night and this is what happened.

I got the most beautiful Kitchen Aid for my graduation gift. I have made many delicious items in it!

Damien likes to clean the beater for me!

I got a haircut.

And so did Damien.

I made quiche for dinner the other night.

And our King Cake arrived today. I have already had two pieces! YUM

Picture Update - Fall

We were back in Provo towards the end of summer and beginning of fall. We decided to throw a New Orleans party for our friends. We made red beans and rice, corn bread, and bananas foster.
Damien even helped me cut the sausage for the red beans and rice.

Becki, Alisa, and Karly.

Damien and Bre.

Adam, Nate, Damien, Travis, and Rachel.

We did another hike to Stewart falls.

Damien had a birthday! I confiscated almost all of his packages and so he thought everyone had forgotten about his birthday. The morning of his birthday I grabbed all of his packages out of their hiding spots while he was in the shower. He was very surprised to see this when he came out.

In his birthday attire.

We celebrated by going to dinner.

Damien had sushi.

I had delicious chicken!

And we finished it off with chocolate cake.

We had a few apple off the apple tree outside our tree house.

We bought a pumpkin from the farmer's market, but never got around to carving it.

The leaves were beautiful around our apartment.

We decided to do a hot dog roast with out friends. Our landlords have a fire pit in the backyard so we used that.

Picture Update - Summer

As many of you know, we lived in New Orleans over the summer. I forgot to post some of the last pictures from our stay there, so here they are:

I started knitting scarves. This is the first scarf I made and it was for Damien.

Damien loved using the goggles we found by the pool on our vacation in Florida, so I surprised him with these!

They starting rebuilding the house next door. This was the big machine that was knocking pylons into the ground and it was shaking the whole house.

We made stencils and painted these birds on our shirts.

I found the cutest yarn shop in the French Quarter! This is how they wrapped my yarn up for me to take home.

Our 2nd anniversary! We went out to dinner and of course finished it off with:


Then we drove back to Provo and it was a long drive,

Damien and I were happy to be back, but our apartment seemed so small. And our stuff was everywhere while we tried to find places for everything to go.

New Orleans was a blast though and I can't wait for our next trip there!

Good News

Good news, I am officially a full-time employee of BYU Broadcasting! I filled out the final paperwork yesterday and now I just have to wait four days to get my new "Employee" BYU ID!

And, I received an email today saying my diploma is in the mail.


Damien is horrible at keeping a surprise from me and usually he tells me that he has a surprise and so it is no longer a surprise. This time he actually did keep a surprise from me. I got home from work the other day and there was a little package in the mail. It had my name on it, but I didn't recognize the return address. When I opened it I found an iPod exercise arm-band. I couldn't believe it. It was just what I needed.

Damien and I have been trying to get back into the habit of running every other day or so and we like to take our iPods to listen to when we run. I have an arm-band that I have been using, but it has been falling apart. I have had to use superglue on it a number of times and I wasn't sure how much longer it would last. But I do not have to fear any longer, because now I have a really cool, durable arm-band. I can't wait to try it out!
