Don't worry...I won't quit my day job.

I have finally done what I was born to do. And I know you all have thought it.

I am a model. That is correct. I model for Ankara by Chelsea. You can check out my hot pic HERE .

It's pretty cool how is got this gig. I mean, she just saw me and said, "Will you model my aprons?" And she is my friend in my ward that I hang out with on a regular basis...but thats not the point.

But seriously, folks, check out her site. She has some great stuff. And she is a really cool girl that deserves business.

Go HERE to win the hot apron I am wearing and see another glamorous shot of yours truly. They definitely cropped this picture to show off my best attributes. The offer of winning the apron is only good today so check it out!

I don't have anything thought provoking or intellectual to say today. Nor do I have anything witty or amusing. I just wanted to make a post on this historic day and say that it's an honor to be apart of it. God bless America.

They say the first year...

Well, Ladies and Germs, we made it.
Chris and I celebrated our one year anniversary of being wed this weekend. I can't even believe it. I am apologizing in advance if I get too shmoopy. I will try my best to keep it at a minimum.

On January 11th, 2008 we were sealed in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple. It was an incredible experience. And the rest of the day went on swimmingly. Honestly, I feel like I had the perfect wedding. Everything was just how I have always wanted it, except it being in the fall...but whateves...

And this weekend was the perfect one year celebration. We had a really nice dinner at "The best Italian Restaurant in Salt Lake City" rated by Zagats, called Lugano's. It defanately did not disappoint. I got us this bonsai tree at Cactus and Tropicals because 1) that is were we had our reception and B) we had a tree like this when we were dating and we killed it, so I thought we would give is another go. I had it waiting on the table of the restauarant when we got there. We named him Secret Little Tree.

After we stuffed ourselves we were off to the lovely Anniversary Inn. We spent our wedding night there so it was fun to be back. I love that place. It's fun and a good place to feel like you are out of town. We watched Waiting for Guffman (which we watched on our first date) and watched our wedding video. In the morning we had breakfast in bed and drove back up to Logan.

Thanks to Chris's mom for saving our wedding cake, we got to eat it tonight. It didn't look too hot but it tasted pretty darn good once it thawed out. It was accompanied by our faveorite tea we got on our honeymoon.

Tomorrow we are back to school and work and the real world but it was a perfect weekend to relax and take time to be a little romantic.
I adore being married to Chris. I couldn't have dreamed of a better husband. He is so good to me and we just have so much freakin fun together.

They say that the first year of marriage is the hardest but to us, marriage isn't hard. It defanately could be but we just choose easy and it's great. This has no doubt been the best year of my life.

And if I didn't gross you out too much with this blog.... Here is some video from our reception done by the wonderful and talented David Perry. Who knows, you might be in it.

Ain't no party like a Fargo party

Hello friends.

How are you? Things are good here.

Oh, Christmas Break. Why did you have to go by so fast?

Chris and I ventured off to Fargo Rock City for Christmas times. It is so nice to be home, but every time I go home I realize that Fargo and I are changing but not together. Except for my house and family, Fargo seems less and less like home. Yes, there are your typical new stores and developments and that one place you always went to isn't there anymore. But more than that, it just feels different. Most of my old friends have moved away and the majority of the ones still around don't feel like friends anymore. It's a little sad but exciting at the same time I suppose. It feels good to let go and move on. I will always love Fargo. Fargo is like the girl that "has a good personality." It may not be the best to look at but dang has it got charm.

Unfortunately, my Dad was the one taking all the pics over break on his camera and I forgot to get them from him so I don't have a lot of pics to share but here is a quick run down.

Our flight didn't leave until like 6ish in the PM so we came to Salt Lake early to go to the Body Worlds Exhibit. Wow. It rocked my socks and could be a post all its own. It will only be around for a few more weeks so if you are in the SLC area and have not gone, I submit that you MUST! There is this skeleton on the wall where you can text something to a number and the skeleton will say it. It was neat.

These past couple years we have been packing up food and presents and having Christmas Eve and morning at our little lake cabin in Minnesota. I love it there. But, man, is it cooolllddd!!!

We took a little jaunt down to the Twin Cities to see the sights, go the The Mall of America, and see a Timberwolves game. My brother, Matt is friends with Mark Madsen, who plays for the T-wolves. So, we got court side tickets for free and hung out with him a little. The team kinda sucks but Mark is one of the nicest guys I've ever met.

Here is the house I lived in from ages 3-10 in Bloomington, MN. I miss those days. I'm glad I got to show Chris. He was a victim to memories overload. He's a champ for enduring.

When we got back to Fargo I got to see some old friends. Katie, Tova, her husband Jake, and Chris and I ate lunch at the new Trollwood. Trollwood is a performing arts school I practically lived at in the summer time. It is in the process of moving to a new location and its uber nice. Like almost too nice to be Trollwood. Here blows the winds of change.

Chris and I recently got climbing gym memberships here in Logan and were missing it so we tried out the new wall in Fargo. It kicked my trash. My mom is a rock star. She may have turned 60 this year (her birthday is on Christmas) but she's still got it.

This is my mom rockin the rock.

I wish I had more pics but oh well. Nothing much more to report about. Just did a lot of chillin and seeing people I love.

We are back safe in Logan and it feels good to be home. I had a really nice New Years but I will save that for my next post. I can't believe that school starts again on Monday. Should be a fun semester.

So, thank you Fargo, thank you Christmas break, and thank you reader of this blog. I love you.

And now for your moment of Zen.
(My dad is recovering from a knee replacement surgery and he got the privilege of sporting one of these through the Mall of America. It was pretty funny.)
