We Love Steve

Steve brought us a lot of enjoyment yesterday. As you know, we are moving soon and trying to sell the majority of our belongings. Cody posted our television on, and this is the first reply that we received:

My Name is Steve, I was wondering if you would consider a trade? 

Here is a list of things I have:

Cabin Cruiser Boat 19' (been sitting)

Motorola Long Range Walkie Talkies 

Ray Ban Sun glasses 

19” Flat Screen (not flat Panel) With built in VHS

Free Standing, Adjustable 
Basketball Hoop 

I sure hope that brought you as much laughter as it did us!!!

I am in Heaven...

I am only halfway through my cupcake, and I am taking a much needed pause from the overwhelming deliciousness of the Vanilla Squared cupcake. O MY GOSH.
I recently saw the Sweet Tooth Fairy on a friends blog, then Cody brought home a clipping out of the BYU newspaper earlier this week, and we had to go. Even after downing way too much pizza at Legends Grille (come on, (1)it is our off day and (2) Cody had to get shots for dental school today and claims he was "sad and depressed" heh....don't judge) we had to check it out. All that I can say is I hope that my hubbs is SAD AND DEPRESSED a lot more often in the future! I so wish we could have found this adorable little bakery MONTHS ago...then again, I am not carrying the extra 10 pounds I would have if we did know about it.
P.S. They gave us a sample of their "cake bites" definitely stay away from those bad boys!(AKA-get them or your will regret it!)

Are we alive?

I am sure that is a question that many of you are thinking, and I am so sorry! I don't even know if we have been so busy that I haven't had time to post, I think I have just been doing other hobbies instead! (So sad that blogging is a hobby for me, but it is!)
Cody has been so busy with school, and is feeling small case of senior-itis. He is pushing through it well, and can't wait for April 23rd! Right now he is in the middle of March Madness, just praying one of his brackets will pull through for him! I am so glad that I married a man who is as obsessed with athletics as my FATHER!
I have been reading quite  a bit lately, and I reccommend two of my most recent books. (Neither of them are for the feint of heart, however...) The first being The Secret Life of Cee Cee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain. I absolutely could not put this book down. Murder, mystery, love, amazing! The second was Me & Emma by Elizabeth Flock. I don't know what to say about this book except for the last 15 pages are amazing! After reading those pages I wanted to read the book all over again. It is definitely a different read, but I did enjoy it.
I am staying busy with photography and loving every minute of it. I really think this could grow into quite a hobby/obsession with me. I love seeing all of the different ways to photograph a child or family. I am always thinking of my next shoot, just wondering what will come of it!
We only have 38 days left in Utah! I can't believe that our home of 4 years is going to be left behind us forever. We are actually excited to move, mainly because there are so many new adventures ahead of us. We are constantly talking about our new home that is 3 times the size of where we live now and everything that we are going to do to it. We are headed to Billings for about 6 weeks to hang out with the family. After all, we won't be seeing them very much in the next 4 years. We hope that we can somehow get our fill (which is obviously impossible) in the short time that we are there.
Then we are headed to Omaha, NE around the first of July!!!! We will be living across the street from Aaron, Erika, Brevin and Jace and can't wait to see them constantly. 
We have lots coming up and can't wait for the changes to come. We are so thankful for everyone here in Utah and will miss them all so much, but we also look forward to those that we will be meeting soon!
