magical mystery tour.

hello dear friends.
i am back once again.
and as i promised i have some pictures to share with you.

happy birthday to my dearest husband.
on nov. 26. yeah, i am way behind on my blogging, i know.

i am going clear back to december for this first one.
m. and band. (they have no name) played a christmas concert.
in turtlenecks and christmas sweaters.
it was lovely.

we made some gingerbread houses, out of graham crackers which completely changes the name and feel of what they were intended to be, but regardless, it was fun. and this picture was taken as our house was literally crumbling in our hands.

ps. i just noticed m.'s face. real cute, huh?

then it was christmastime.
and our tree shown round about our tiny little apartment.
it was quite bright.

and our p.jams were pretty neat too.

then came 2011 and a trip to lava hot springs.
we stayed in here.

it looked like this.

and ate breakfast here.
it was about the same as eating an old shoe for breakfast.

more concerts, more concerts.

then we went to the sundance film festival.
we saw no films, but ate expensive pizza.

and lastly, let us not forget that the superbowl is upon us people.
do i care who wins?
no. just as long as i get to hang with this guy.

i'll do better to stay more updated.
until next time.
peace and love.
and hugs too.

it's the seventh of january and i am already posting something new! am i doing good or what?! i am pretty proud of myself.
anyway. i don't have anything in particular that i plan on writing about, so i apologize if this sounds like rambling. because it kind of is.
ok, i think i've gather my thoughts enough so let me stop this rambling and give you all a little taste of the goals that i have set for myself. and a few that m. and i have set together for the upcoming year.
for me:
one. find some new hobbies. learn how to make and create new things.
two. exercise. i know this is a goal for most of the u.s. population, but that doesn't mean that it isn't a good goal.
three. enter and run some kind of race. maybe a 5k. maybe a half marathon. maybe a ragnar. i'm not sure yet, but that is a big goal for me. cause guys, i hate running. a lot.
four. sew a new dress for tif's wedding. a yellow one. and a maybe a few other things too.
five. be a better wife to my husband. he does so much for me and sometimes i don't do enough to show ow much a appreciate him.
six. don't get preggers. we don't want no babies right now.
and for the m. and i:
one. read the scriptures everyday.
two. go to the temple twice a month. totally do-able.
three. go on a vacation. texas!
four. get away at least one weekend a month. or every two months, depending on what is going on and how much money we have.
five. speaking of money. save money.
six. get a new car. not a new new car. just a new one for us. one that is reliable and 2006 or newer. too specific? nah.
well, this is a good enough post for now.
next time: pictures!
