Kickball Mayhem

So, as many of you may know, Virginia and I are on an intermural kickball team with our ward this spring. It's been a great opportunity for me to re-live my high school glory days of baseball (closely related to kickball). Unfortunately I sometimes get a little to into it and forget that sliding into 3rd on a rough field doesn't go over well when wearing shorts...

Virginia strained her quad pretty good. So hopefully we'll be all rested by the time saturday's season closer comes around.
So i am really into quizzes on facebook and I found this one that I can put on my blog. I just finished watching Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, and Jane Eyre so it was fun to take.

I am Elizabeth Bennet!

Take the Quiz here!

Monday Night = American Gladiators

As you can tell, our family is super excited that season 2 of American Gladiators is finally here! Tonight was the season premier and it was not just one but TWO hours long! Its so fun to watch something that you grew up with and have it be back on tv. This show is a very inspiring show for me and I have 2 favorite Gladiators- Crush (she used to be a cage fighter) and Jet (last season's winner- shes a soccer mom). They truly inspired me as I prepare for a triathlon in June. I know it sounds cheesy but trust me, its inspiring. My new life long goal is to be able to see it live! It would be a dream come true! If you missed tonight, remember next Monday night on NBC- its definitely entertaining.

Spring is for Seeds!

With the time that Scott and I have had over the last week, we decided to plant a garden for the summer. Spring/Summer is finally here so we went to wal-mart and picked out our favorite veggies including tomatoes, squash, banana peppers and beans. this morning we began to plant them we realized that we had no idea what we were doing. after reading the directions twice, we took it in consideration and did what we thought was best- dig holes and bury the seeds... in a few weeks you can stop by and see a garden like this...maybe

This was our wedding cake, we kept it a year and practiced the tradition of eating it a year later. it was gross..


This week Scott and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary! I know! Its kinda weird how fast time flies by! I can't believe its been a year since we were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. Many of you didn't think we'd make it this far and at times I thought the same thing! Thanks goodness for answered prayers. Just a few things that we've been able to experience in the last year:

- whitewater rafting the Colorado River
- 12 hour drive to Tuscon Arizona and experiencing Gini on drugs
- Planning a fake mission call for Dallin
- Enduring Provo summer heat with no ac
- Going on our first cruise to Mexico (learning that sangera has alcohol in it in Mexico..opps!)
- Scott learning to drive a boat
- Learning we both have really really bad morning breath
- Camping for the fist time as a family
- Realizing that there really is such a thing as "honeymoon stage" and you get over it fast

We've had our ups and downs but its been a good year and we are excited to see how year #2 goes!
