Oh, the wonderful weekend!

We had such a great weekend! It started off on Friday, we went to a wedding reception for one of Mike's friends. It was beautiful! Afterwards, we needed to do something fun because of the great excitement that I have since school is DONE! We got dessert and quickly ran to Golfland before it closed. It was so much fun! Plus, it was a beautiful night out! We were up pretty late so we slept in Saturday morning. Saturday we went to a lizard pit at a family friends work. It was disgusting and cool all at the same time. haha, I was freaking out at how many lizards there were! On our way home we stopped at my aunts bakery in Phx for some yummy yummy mexican food. After, we washed our car out in the warm sun (Mike did most of the work while I layed out.. hehe). That night we stayed over at my parents house while they were out of town. We went to go get dessert and took a nice drive with the windows down because of the wonderful night weather that we've been having. Sunday was wonderful as well, even though we were extremely tired from our weekend activities. I love summertime.

Above, Mike and I at Golfland!
I told Tanner and Mike to do a scared face because we were surrounded by reptiles.

A project I've been working on for the week! A big H now hangs in my family room...So much fun to do. :)

Friday, Mike went to Fathers and Sons.... in place of a date with Mike, I went on a "Sister Date" with my one and only sister Nicole! I love spending time with her! We went to her favorite restraunt In-N-Out and then headed to the Buttes Resort in Tempe to go hot-tubbing! We had so much fun and it was good to spend some quality time. I love my sister!

Yesterday was Mothers Day! What a beautiful day to reflect on all that our mothers do for us. I'm so grateful for my mom and all she has done for me and the unconditional love that she has. I always have so much fun with her and we know how to make eachother laugh! Over the years, our relationship has only been better and i'm so grateful for the great relationship that we hold! She will always hold a special place in my heart!

I added a link of a video to the post today, because on May 5, 2011 my husband was awarded from the Chief of Police for saving someones life. At about 13:45 on the video, is when this special moment happens! I'm so proud of him and his bravery in saving this mans life

catchin' up

So, I feel like it's been a while since i've updated everyone on our lives...

First thing's first, we bought a car! I don't have any pictures of the car but it's a grey Honda Accord and we LOVE it. We're also going to love the gas mileage compared to the truck. We also just purchased a new scoot for Mike, the one we had just had a wimpy engine. We needed something more reliable to get to work and school for the both of our busy schedules. This past weekend was a wonderful one, after work on Friday I got to see my really good friend who's living in Australia. We went to lunch and just caught up on each others lives. ( The middle picture is me and Kelsey ). That night my husband and I went with my Dad and Grandma to the temple for my family. It was such a wonderful experience. It's amazing the peace you can feel when you're on the temple grounds. After the session, we went to Costa Vida! YUM!

^ This picture is Mike and I in the back of the truck at a drive in in the church parking lot, watching Despicable me! ^ :) we love date night!
^Kelsey & I ^

^ Haha we had to take pictures of all the cash we had when we bought our car... so just in case you were wondering... those are all Benjamins.. ^
