Because Chad is in the Accounting program at Brigham Young University, and has an internship with PWC this upcoming summer, we went to a recruiting day for PWC at Sundance Ski Resort in Utah. Here are some pictures:
This is Chad looking off into the distance at all the skiers risking their lives coming down the hill.
(That arm-band is to identify him as a 'student', the PWC employees were wearing orange ones)

This was a bunch of skis lined up outside the lodge. I'd never seen this before in real life, only in movies, so I had to take a picture.

And, here's one of their center-pieces. The table-cloth was black, 
so it looked a lot more elegant than this picture.

Today was day 10 of my Amish Bread! It is sooo good! So here's the final product, warm and right out of the oven! --This is why I'm not losing those pounds--

looking forward to a fun Friday night this week! Have a great weekend everybody!
Also, shout out to Kalita (my sister-in-law), gave birth to number four today! Beautiful baby girl, Karly!!!

Update of the last 3 Months

So we're now married! Yay! Life is wonderful. We've done lots of fun things and here are pictures! (P.S. if you can tell me how to make my blog prettier, that'd be awesome. I don't really know how to work this stuff)

I'll start with our honeymoon! Since we went to the Oregon Coast, we went to Mo's, one of the hottest seafood restaurants in the Pacific City area.

 This is Mo's famous Clam Chowder. mmmmm it was so goo

Chad's fried octopus. I don't remember what its called, Calamari I think. 

 My fish tacos. They were so good! 

This is Chad, enjoying the Tillamook Cheese Factory Tour. 

An authentic Tillamook Cheeseburger, complete with pickle and chips.

Chad on the freezing cold Pacific City beach. It really is just gorgeous, but it was soooo cold!

A treasure we found while driving around.

And thus begins our journey down to LA from Oregon. We stopped in Sacramento California and had dinner at P.F. Chang's. So delicious! These sauces are what start the meal.

Chad's soup.

My soup. Mine was so much better, but Chad liked his better. Good choices then, I guess. 

The chicken for the lettuce wraps. If you go to P.F. Chang's get the lettuce wraps, they are divine!

This is the chicken dish I ordered, so good.

This is the beef one Chad ordered. Again, I liked mine a lot better. Good choices.

Annnnd, even though we were stuffed to the brim we finished this together in less than three minutes. It was the perfect combination of chocolate and fruit: enough fruit to keep it light without the chocolate overdoing anything. (Tribute to Tessa for the food picture idea. Love it!)

thiiiis is a lovely side-view of the flower-mart in downtown LA (I was so excited to be in downtown LA) Errin and her mom took Mom and I to go pick out flowers for the open house. It reminded me so much of My Fair Lady, it was awesome!

More flowers!

Christmas came before the open house. It was the largest amount of presents I had ever seen in one place with that many people in the same place too!

Here's a picture of all the kids (and Kalita and Chad and Tabby...and half of Michael)! Aren't they just the cutest! I can't wait to be back for the summer and hang out with them.

And the largest amount of presents, which then multiplied the next day. It was craziness in there, but oh so happy!

Valentine's Day came around and I scrounged up pink waffles and strawberry sauce with whipped cream. It was so good, although Chad liked the regular syrup, so I got to eat all the strawberries!

This past weekend we drove up to Mountain Green--just outside of Morgan, Utah--to stay with my grandparents. This is my Grandma Nell. She taught me how to make a pie crust! (one of those really frustrating things where men really want to stay out of the kitchen) It turned out really well, kinda crumbly, but I think that's a good thing. Here she is, with our fabulous caramel apple pie.

On Tuesday, because it was 45 cent wing day at Buffalo Wild Wings, we went there for a date. It was way fun, especially because I had never been. 

Chad, chomping down on a hot wing. 

Well that's it for now. Hopefully I can actually keep up! Love ya'll.

He liked it so he put a ring on it!

The day has finally arrived! Sooner than expected, but it has! :D I am so excited to be with this wonderful man forever! (Plus, his family is great ><) Wedding plans are in the works and will not be completed shortly as so many people seem to think.
Here's the ring! Chad did some fancy footwork to get my family heirloom ring from my mother. It has been my grandmother's and my mother's wedding ring and now it has been lovingly given to me. Check out the picture!
This is going to be a wonderful journey and I am looking forward to the immense adventure that awaits!
