Christmas & More

Thursday, December 29, 2011

So, in case you didn't know...we got to spend our Christmas in the wonderful land of Texas! It was SO great and so fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent with family and friends, and wished it didn't have to end so soon! I cried like a stinkin' baby for the whole first hour we were on the road to come back to Utah. Hopefully Cole will be accepted into the Middle Eastern Studies Master's program at the University of Texas in Austin, so that we can be a little closer to our family in Texas for a little bit before we end up living in another country. 

While we were in Texas, we ate some yummy food, (Thai kitchen a few times :)) had some good company and got some wonderful gifts from loved ones. Sounds like a good time if ya ask me! We didn't take as many pictures as we should've but here's the ones we do have!

Us with the Monticello, UT Temple

Our first stop in Texas - Buffalo Wild Wings!

While we were at the theater in Amarillo to watch Sherlock Holmes, we thought it would be a good idea to buy some mustaches. To our dismay the were all sold out and we didn't realize that until after we had put in our 50 cents.

On anther note, we watched We Bought A Zoo last night and loved it! Definitely a movie to go see.

And last but most definitely not least, today marks a year since Cole proposed to me in Times Square. Me finally getting to New York City on this day last year was definitely a miracle considering historical snow storms that hit the east coast last year cancelled thousands of flights, with my original flight being one of those.

I am so grateful that I was able to spend the rest of my Christmas break, with my then soon to be family, and have the experiences with them that I did. Most importantly I'm so grateful that I was able to make it out there and that on that very day, the 29th of December 2010, Cole asked me to be his eternal companion. I would have to say that saying yes to him has been the 
best decision I've ever made. 

In case you didn't get to see the video of the proposal - here ya go! 
It still gives me butterflies when I watch it. :)

We hope you had a very Merry Christmas and that you have a wonderful New Year!
