Fun Stuff

Well I LOVE Christmas time!!! I would say its my favorite holiday of the year. I'm just a happy person in December! We didnt have a christmas tree this year so my mom let us borrow her half tree. It turned out really cute. We will prob just buy a tree after christmas when there are tons of sales on them.

I made another picture frame. It's dark brown and blue. I really like this one for a baby boys nursery.Fun.

And yesterday, Kristen, Corrine and I met up for lunch at Tai Pan to eat and do a little shopping. I didnt get anything, Thank goodness. I would have spent way too much money. It was really good to see them both. I havent seen Corrine in about a year so it was way over-do. I have to come to find that friends are SO important at whatever stage of life you are in.


Thanksgiving & More...

So, these last week or so has been very eventful. I only worked three days this week, which was fabulous and well needed. Thanksgiving was Great! We ate soooo much food. Dallas's Dad came in town so we went to that side of the family first for our first meal. It was nice seeing his dad and all of Dall's family that live in Idaho that we never see. They need to definately come down more and we need to get up to Idaho more often. Then we headed over to Dall's moms side of the family. We ate another full meal there. And they had the most AMAZING PIES!!! I love pies. They are my favorite!! Then we went over to my parents for the rest of the night. It's always fun there. We played Chinese Checkers.. and i did not win. I slept over to do the Black friday thing with my brother nate and his wife April, and also my mom. We didnt quite wake up as early as we neded to. We were an hour behind everywhere, but there was still good stuff to be had. So this year was another Wonderful Thanksgiving. CHRISTMAS.... Here we come!!
My mom trying so hard to smile BIG!

You know I had to add one of these!

Getting Lost in the Ads!!

Last weekend, it was my moms birthday and then the day after, it was my parents Anniversary... 34 Years!! We went to the Bingham Football Game for her B-Day, yup.. thats what she wanted to do. Then we went to Hard Rock after to eat some yummy food! And of course on Saturday, mym mom spent her anniversary with the girls at Twilight, while my dad went with the boys to watch the BIG GAME!!! We all had a lot of fun, except for Dall, who is a BYU fan. Sorry Buddy. Here are some pics.
Allie came, we had fun!

Oh... Special!

My cute mom & dad on her B-Day.



It was brought to my attention about a type-o o made on my last posting... I AMMMMMMMM Rob Pattinson's #1 FAN!!!! That is all!



Ok... so me, my sisters and my mom went to see Twilight tonight. We made it a girls night out while the men stayed home with the chillins and watched the BYU/ U of U football game.( GO UTES!!!!!)We fine dined at Red Robyn, then entered the black abyss of a movie theater to watch the BEST MOVIE EVER! I seriously LOVED it. Everything about it!! If you know me, my little siter and I have been known to get pretty obsessed over movies...( Titanic, Fear, Pearl Harbor, anyhting with Gerard Butler, Titanic.. oh wait, did i mention that one already?)And this is one more to add to the list, well, MY List!! I couldnt have been more pleased. I thought everyone did a great job portraying the characters. They could have put more of Hot Emmett on the screen, but I guess there is always 90210. Anywho, I am not Rob Pattinsons #1 fan! AMAZING!!!


Love/ Hate Relationship..

So i need to vent about something that has absolutely no importance. The GYM!! There was once a time where i really enjoyed going to the gym. Letting my frustrations out with running 5 miles and then lifting weights... feeling like i could punch a very large man! But, i do not feel that way so much anymore. As I am getting older, i am noticing a few fun facts. 1. I am getting softer. 2. I am getting squishier. 3. I have a perminant line on my belly where my garment band is... and right below it is a fun little pouch. 4. I think i now have asthma because i get winded like an old woman every time i step on a tredmil. I have NO enthusiasm to go to the gym anymore!! Does Anyone have some fun work out tips that make it some what enjoyable. I'm at a loss. I shall spare you from any more of this useless information. On a very much happier note, I am putting up my Christmas Tree on Wednesday! I am a Christmas fanatic so it will be a great day!!!


So.. Halloween was fun fun fun. Its wierd though because we dont have chillins yet and we cant trick or treat anymore so what do we do??? Costume Party Anyone? That is what we did. Dall, me, my bother and his wife went to our cousins for a party. It was fun. Then we came back and watched a scary Halloween movie until after 1:00 am. Then the next day was our girls day. All that were included was my mommy, Marn, Rach and Allie. I am so mad because i did not take one picture! Blast! We went to pottery barn, the gateway, gardner village and then last but certainly not least. TAI PAN!!! Oh we had fun but we missed our sister April. She wasnt able to make it. I love hanging out with my sisters when there are no nieces.. so we can really talk.. and laugh, which is what we do most of the time. I love my sisters. Then sunday was my neice Avery's baby blessing. She is so adorable so i put pictures. Enjoy!
Us with Bryce and Jamie

Dall, me, my sister in-law April and Bro Nate

Cute Maggie on Halloween

Oh boy..

And here are some very adorable pictures of my niece Avery. I'm obsessed with her!!!


HaPpY HaLlOwEeN!!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE! I hope every one has a wonderful and festive.. and safe Halloween! Tonight, dall and I and my brother and his wife are going to our cousins Halloween Party in Eagle Mountain. They dont know we are coming yet so it should be fun! Then we are either going to a haunted house or watching an old scary movie at my parents house. We are also sleeping over tonight due to our early girls day we are having with all the sisters tomorrow. I am quite excited!!! I am dressing up to be a baby... how quaint since i want one so bad! And Dall is going to be this scary Goth guy. Thats what he was last year and he didnt want to find a costume. The nerve, some people just CANT get into Halloween. So i will post pictures of our eventful night tomorrow. Happy Haunting!



Well it is a very exciting week for me and Dallas because... we paid off my car on Monday!! It really is the best feeling! Now we are just working on getting Dallas' car paid off. Hopefully we will be able to do have it payed off this time next year! We have just been having these feelings to get out of debt asap!! So that is what we are going to do! Yay for paying off debts!


What Angie's been up to..

So i have been entertaining myself well these days. I have been busy making picture frames and we headed down to Antimony this weekend for the 1 year anniversary of my grandma's death. My grandpa wanted as many of the family down there for this weekend. Not everyone could come so the ones that werent there were greatly missed. My grandpa spoke in church and gave a great talk about Love. He talked about my grandma and some lessons he learned through his life experiences. He is one of the greatest men i know and i feel so lucky to have him as my grandpa. I love him so much!! On top of the great meeting, we hepled clean up the yard a bit. Dallas helped cut down tree limbs and almost fell out of the tree. We also had a wedding reception to go to, babies to snuggle with and we did a lot of laughing. There was also a great vollyball tourny and most of us were badly bruised. I feel blessed to be a part of my awesome family! Here are some photos of the current events.

My mom did the pink and black one and i did the other two.

Me and my mommy.

I couldnt resist.. my mom's adorable yorkie Maggie.

Dall trying ti kill himself up in a tree.

Taking down tree limbs is HARD work!

Erin and I at Carlye's reception #2.

Cheesing it!!

Some of my dearest family members storming the wind. I'ts incredibly windy at the cemetary.

This is my grandma's beautiful gravesite. My grandpa hand picked each rock for it and made it look like a dry stream bed because my grandma loved beautiful rocks. How sweet is that!

And what would a trip to Antimony be without my father. He was a little hyper. I love that Man!!


My new creation...

So, a couple of weeks ago, my mom and i went to this cute children/baby store on 9th and 9th and we saw these cute picture frames with stripes and polka-dots and cute bows. I wanted to get one but then my mom said that we could make them and it would be easy too. So, we went to one of our favorite stores, Roberts, bought plain wood picture frames and cute paint colors to create our cute picture frames. My mom was making one for my sisters baby's nursery. They were really easy and fun to make. I am not crafty at all so i must say i am quite proud of myself. The one my mom made is black with pink polka-dots and a pink bow. I will NOT stop there. If anyone wants one, i will make one for ya!


Busy but Great Weekend..

Well, this weekend was crazy busy, but wonderful. It started out with a Doctors visit.. the one that women arent too excited for. Then Friday night, my sister Marni who was almost nine months prego said she was having back pains. She was concerned because she thought she might be going into labor. They live an hour away from the hospital the are delivering at so she packed her bags just in case. Sure enough, she was having contractions every couple minutes. Well, she had the her baby girl at 5:00 am Saturday morning so neither her or Landon got much sleep. They named her Avery Francis Reid. She is so beautiful and healthy and as Marni has said "ALL HERS!!" It is so exciting to have a baby in the family again. And probably soon, my oldest sister will be adopting. It's just so exciting. And i'm only just extremely baby hungry! I LOVE my family!

I love this baby girl!!!

On Saturday night, we hung out with our good friends Kristen and Brandon. It has been a while since we did a fun date night with them and it was long overdue. We met up at Zuppas for some good sandwhiches/ soup/ salad. Then we went to Boondocks and did the mini golf thing.. which was great. I actually didnt do that bad like I always do at that particular activity. Then we went to coldstone for Icecream. You always have to end a date with good ice cream. Well, at least me and Kristen thought so. The boys didnt partake. But the best part of the night was the great conversation. We could talk to them for hours. They are so funny and wise. Thanks Kris and Brandon for a great night!! Love you!
Dallas and Brandon side tracked..

Eating yummy food at ZUPPAS!! Brandon didnt like it so much!

And last but not least... Sunday, me and dall and my parents went to my cousins Erin and Dans ward in Spanish Fork for their baby boy Lucas' blessing day. It was such a great meeting. The blessing itself was so special. There is seriously nothing more special than knowing that you are going to be sealed to your husband and your precious babies for eternity. I am so grateful for my faith and for my family that i will be together with forever!! I hope i will NEVER take that for granted!

And so it comes to an end Part 1...

So it is the last and dreadful day of August. Which means summer is really coming to a close. If anyone knows me at all... they would know that I am always sad to see summer leave. I love autumn, and I even love winter.. up till Christmas that is. After that, I just get really deperesed. I mean with all that cold, windy, snowey weather... it just kind of wears on you. I am the most happy in the summer time and i am sad to say goodbye. So any warm day i get from here on out.. i will be making the best of every second of it. Such a somber moment!!!

Goodbye days where the best way to spend a summer day would be drinking Lemonade outside in the sun. I'll miss you very much!

and goodbye warm, wet, and relaxing swimming pool.

And so it comes to an end..

... and HELLO Beautiful Autumn!

On another note.. look how good a baby looks in Dallas's arms!!! Dallas is holding baby Lucas, my cousin Erins baby. He is so cute! I'm only making a big deal about this picture because a. I am extremely baby hungry and b. Dallas thinks babies are too fragile for him to hold. He is affraid he will break them. So I LOVE this picture... and dallas is a natural!


ODE to Rachel!!!

So many things have happened since i last wrote. I'll spare you from the Breaking Dawn obsession. Oh where to begin... Well I did try out for AI at the end of July. Me, my cousin Dave, my mom and my aunt Debbie all went. We got up at 3:30 in the morning to be down at the ESA at 5:00am to stand in line... for 3 hours. We did a lot of waiting and then they cattle called us down to the floor so we could try out in groups of 4. So the guy that was judging me asked me to sing 4 songs. Then he said he was letting me go because i had the "voice" just not the stage presence. What the??? I guess i just didnt understand. If they wanted me to perform to my fullest, they should have asked. I was just doing what they asked me to do. But oh well. I know now that AI is just not for me. At least i can say i did it. Then the day after, me and dallas where invited to go to Lake Powell with our good friends family, the Johnsons. Derek and Nicole are our friends and it was so fun! We stayed for 4 days and just had a blast. I actually got up on the knee board and i did a little surfing off the back of the boat. That is HUGE for me. It really was the funnest thing we have done all summer. We love them and are glad they asked us to go with them. Here are some pics. Enjoy!

The flowers Dall got me for AI. He is just so sweet!

Us on the molecule. This tube was Awesome!

Dallas Wake Boarding. He was really good!

Me and Nicole.. I look Terrible, dont judge!

So on a more sad note... my best friend in the whole world left yesterday for North Carolina for 4 years. Her husband Josh is going to med school there. It was a hard day for me!! But it was even harder for Ali. The day she left was her little sister Michelle's wedding day. Ali got to go to the temple but she had to leave after pictures were taken there. I was lucky enough to be invited. I feel close enough tp those girls that they could be my sisters!! I love the Hair Family! So i got to see Ali at the temple, then i just couldnt handle it any more. I just gave her my goodbye present, gave her two big hugs and just left. I started bawling all the way to my car! It was just an emotional day. So ALI.... I love you and I am so glad you are my best friend. You have been the greatest!! It's not good bye, it's See you at christmas... and I'll call you a few times every week!!!!
Ali's younger sis Michelle looking gorgeous on her wedding day!

BEST FRIENDS!! Love you Ali!
