Loving our lovely life.

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

I'm just really in love with this picture right now, so I thought I'd share it with y'all. :) 
Why do you ask? Well...
1. Cole is the very handsome love of my life and he's sitting by my side in this picture.
2. We're at a BYU football game - always great (as long as Riley Nelson is our QB).
3. I was having a good hair day - always great as well.

We're pretty busy with school right now because midterms always seem to make it that way, but we are glad to be attending a wonderful school and receiving an education that will open many doors for our future. It's kind of crazy that we're almost half way done with this semester and starting to plan out our classes and schedule for next semester! 

On another note, in 11 days we'll have been married for 6 months!! Time has really flown by! I remember when we were engaged a week felt like forever but now it seems that the days are passing by so quickly. We both have learned a lot about what it takes to keep a marriage together, and it's no easy task. Nonetheless neither one of us would tell you that we regret committing to one another for time and all eternity. Being able to grow and learn in this life with your best friend by your side is an amazing thing and I know that I couldn't have picked a better person for myself than Cole!

In Case You Missed It...

Here's the highlights from General Conference! Very inspiring, uplifting and wonderful messages if I do say so myself. :)

Wanna hear about our good week?!

Monday, October 3, 2011

First of all this past weekend was General Conference and it was oh so lovely. We got to sit relax all weekend and listen to the inspired messages that the leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had to offer to us. It's held twice a year (the first weekend in April & October) and it always seems to occur at the right time in my life; just when I need to be spiritually edified and uplifted the most. Cole and I decided that as a family tradition we're going to make pumpkin cinnamon rolls during the October conference, and regular cinnamon rolls during the April conference! This weekend was the first time to try the recipe that I found, and it was definitely a hit!

Cream cheese frosting to smother on top of them. :)

The final product - so yummy!
Another good thing is that BYU won against Utah State! We weren't so sure how this game was going to turn out because Utah State has a pretty good team, but the last minute and a half our back up quarter back stepped up and became the hero of the game. 

People rushed the field after, but the cops were stopping who they could and giving them tickets, so I decided we should just stay in the stands. Cole was disappointed because I was being boring and careful. 
And last but certainly not least we decided to go on a ride to look at all the beautiful trees changing colors, and had a wonderful time being together and enjoying a piece of the beautiful earth that we are so blessed to live in.

Cole's favorite trees! Quaking aspens. :)

This cabin is for sale - if we had money we'd totally buy it!

And here's a video of a few parts of our adventure! 

Tomorrow is Cole's birthday and I have a special date planned for him, so you'll probably be hearing about that next!
