Thanksgiving in Cancun!


Isla Mujeras

This was an island/house made out of recycled bottles...Jimmy wished he had a beebee gun...I thought it was soooo cool!

We have been wanting to go on a vacation and knew we had to take advantage of our time off work. The Tuesday before Thanksgiving we hadn't had anything planned and I was getting anxious in the freezing snow. So I hopped online and booked a vacation to Cancun, and we were off on Wednesday morning to warm 80 degree weather. We had so much fun! Here are some pictures of us in Beautiful Cancun.

Happy Halloween!

It has been so long since I have taken the time to update our Blog! We have so much going on and so much to update! So here it Goes...

1. We have been back in Utah for almost two months now! We purchased our first home and are so excited, and have had fun making it feel like home. We feel so blessed to be back in Utah with our family and friends, and be in such a great neighborhood.

2. We got the Red Dragon running! It is a red old Honda 90 that was made in 1968. It has sat at Adriennes house for a long time and has not been registered since 1981...before Jimmy and I were even Born! Adrienne got it when she was 16, and drove it everywhere. We have loved riding on it in the cold weather all around our neighborhood with gloves, goggles and scarves to keep us warm...people laugh at us as they drive by, WE LOVE it!

3. DANIEL is HOME!!! After serving in Poland for two whole years he is Back!! WE have loved having him home. I am so proud of him! Along with him comming home Stephanie and Britton came in for a visit. We have loved having our family all together once again!!

4. Jimmy was promoted to an outside Medical Sales rep covering the whole Salt Lake territory. His company has been so great to Him. When we decided that we did not want to take the Seattle Region, He knew he wanted to continue with the company he was working with, but thought it would take a bit longer to get into the outside position being that there are about 15 guys that all wanted this position in Utah. With Jimmy's good looks, hard work, and personality he was given the position. I am so proud of him.

5. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! Every year halloween just keeps getting better and better. Jimmy and I love Holidays, and Halloween has become one of our favorites! On Thursday, with us being in our home we threw a Halloween party. We loved having all of our Friends over, and I do have to say, Jimmy once again blew us all away in tight Spandex, but I do have to say those legs make me jealous. All of the costumes keep getting better and better, and this was no exception. Friday, Adrienne threw her annual party which we all love. It is ALWAYS fun seeing everyones costumes and the pumpkin carving contest that everyone wins. Hearing Andys whitty comments on the Pumpkins such as the PP pumpkin (patterned pumpkin) or simon birch, operation smile.... just to name a few, kept us laughing. Tonight, Jimmy and I decided we wanted to stay home for our First Halloween in our home and see all of the kids dressed up in there costumes. We have had so many Kids come by, all the cutest things ever, we have loved it.

Here are a couple of pictures of Halloween, our house and the red dragon. I will post more in a couple of days of Daniels Homecoming. It feels good to be back Blogging and hopefully I won't get behind again!

Fourth of July!

Here is an update of pictures for the fourth of July.... I know it is almost the end of July and just getting around to it, but It was a fun night in Philly at the Art Museum. There was Sheryl Crow performing and the Roots! We loved watching the fireworks, and even more the crazy people around us. Anyways, I can't believe it is the end of July...Jimmy and I will be coming home shortly (end of August), and we couldn't be happier!

Philli with our Friends!!

We are so happy becuase Rob and Crystalin are out here in Philli for the rest of the summer!!!! We didn't expect them out here but were thrilled they are here! Here pictures of us in Philli! We have missed our family and friends being so far away, but it made it better having at least two of our close friends out here!

I like to ride my bicycle!

So is been a while since I have posted. We are out in Philli staying busy with work, work, and more work. It has been so busy...but we have had a couple days of fun. Last week we decided to go to the driving range. On our way we saw a RED retro bike on the side of the road that an old man was selling becuase they had had it hanging in there garage for many years. It was in mint condition, but had rust all over the rims and flat tires. I fell in love right away, we brought it home and I took a brillo pad to the rims and the rust came off and it shined up so well! Jimmy named it Foxy Lady. We road it to the walmart right behind our house and I road on the handle bars and jimmy pedaled! It was so fun! haha

So in our travels to Philidelphia, I found out from our trustee tom tom that Cedarburg (wheres my sister lives) was only 170 miles out of our way!! For a trip that is 3000 miles we felt it was worth our time to take the detour. We had so much fun with them and playing with the boys! The picture we took was at Amy's Carmel Apple Shop in the little town on Cedarburg. They were so yumy! The trip was long and annoying but we loved our little detour.


Jimmy graduated from UVU! I am so proud of him with all that he had this semester....and he still seemed to do well enough in his classes to graduate! Here are the pictures from his party.... we were happy to have everyone there. It had great food and was a lot of fun! Again....I wish I would have taken pictures earlier with everyone there! We had such a fun time, and I am so proud of Jimmy and his accomplishments!

Mixed Emotions!

{as the cam cam was leaving with its new owner I had to watch it drive away}
{I have to move on with my life}

{Jimmy saying don't take the cam cam away}

So we never thought the day would come when we would have to sell the camry....but the day has come! Since we are moving to Philidelphia, it was either pay to transport it for 800... or sell.... So we sold it this morning! We were sad to see it go becuase it got us from A to B and never gave us ANY problems....even with 234,000 miles! Jimmy woke me up early this morning and I took pictures of his last moments with the Cam here they are... As you can tell there were mixed emotions.

Casino Night!

We had a couple of friends over for my birthday, and what would be a party without a game of AC Ducey. It was fun having everyone over. We were sad when everyone was leaving becuase we only have about 20 more days until we leave. We have loved all of our friends that we have grown so close to and will miss everyone tons! It was crazy though, we were thinking with Nate and Kirk there we would come out on top, but with kirks luck from Lauren, and Nates luck of well, Chad.... We all came out about even...except Chase and Goldie did bounce early with about $5 up...but we'll get that back soon! Thanks for all that came.... I wish I would have taken more pictures of everyone!

Welcome to Seattle!

Jimmy and I are so excited! Orbit the company he is working for right now has offered him a Medical Sales Rep Position opening the Seattle Washington and eventually Oregon area. Both Jimmy and I had never been there before and wanted to see the area before we packed our bags and moved there in September. So this last weekend we took a trip there to see if we could picture us living there and eventually start our family there. We have heard so many good things and were so excited and nervous to go, we had the feeling we would easily fall in love. The whole weeked was so Perfect. We stayed at Geoff Baulkmans house in Issaquah, which didn't help much becuase his family was so incredibly nice, and there home was so beautiful right on lake Sammaish. We woke up to incredible views of the lake and everything was so breathtaking! Everything was incredibly green, with rolling hills and amazing views all over! We looked at apartments, and homes and then did the tourest stuff like Pikes Market, the space needle, and Snoqualime Falls. Of course Jimmy gave me a LITTLE time in Nordstroms (which is the headquarters) and It gave me a glimps of the shopping ahead and I can't wait to get down there and spend a LITTLE more time there. At the end of the trip we we're both in LOVE, and excited to have the opportunity of living in such an amazing place. We will miss friends and family so much, but are excited for all the memories and experiences ahead. Here are a couple of pictures of our trip!
