we we weeeeee.

this past week....
we went to school and work a lot.
too much, actually.
we enjoyed three deliciously yummy homemade goodies. 
{chicken enchiladas, zucchini bread, and granola}
we "picked" our new home.
which we are anxious to move into this weekend.
we spent another week in love.

we spent the weekend in san francisco.
we saw a beautiful performance of giselle.
we spent the night at joe's incredible apartment.
{watching the making of oprah's shows. insane, i tell you.}
we ate a yummy breakfast.
we raced off to church.
we spent the rest of the day just as lovebirds
walking the streets of "our" city.
and unfortunately,
we didn't take one picture.
lame, i know.

hope you had as good of a week as we did.
cheers to another week!

i'll be spending the last few hours of the weekend snuggling up
to the most incredible husband in the world.
jealous? you should be.

nose nightmare

wanna hear something funny?
last night, we were both dead asleep when all of a sudden....
lovebird somehow managed to elbow me hard and nailed me 'smack dab' in the nose.
i woke up with instant tears. 
it happened all so fast.
i didn't know what to think and neither did he.
he hadn't realized he did it. 
and i was trying my hardest not to hate him for the pain i was now feeling.
my nose is still tender to touch today.
right now, as we snuggle in bed, we are laughing about it.
i mean, what are the chances?
certainly a funny moment. 
{painful one too}

{i have a feeling my face looked somewhat like this when i woke up}

goodnight nose, lovebird, long day 
and a very good night to you.

can you say busy?

life is just a little too busy at the moment.
i've basically been going to work/dance from 11:00 to 9:00 every day.
it's definitely taking a toll on my body. 
{aches, pains and bruises.}
i've been dying to blog, because i have so much to catch up on.
however, i'm afraid i might not find time this weekend. because...
today: i have have to go to both my jobs and then dance all evening.
 tomorrow: rehearse all afternoon and in the evening, annie,
 (our friend from germany) 
is coming over to the house for dinner and a movie.
{we are so excited to have her though. she's adorable.}
Sunday: we have to speak in sacrament meeting, which means i've got to finish writing my talk. yikes.
not to mention prepare a primary lesson. 
and then we are going over to a friend's house for the evening.

i hope your weekend is less busy than mine.
that being said, have a wonderful friday. 
I'm hoping to squeeze a better post in tomorrow.

thank goodness it is a holiday. 
and that my work acknowledges it.
happy martin luther king day.

i have absolutely loved having the day off.
{well not entirely, because i've still have to go into dance for 6 hours today}
but still, it's been extremely nice.

we spent our day by being lazy.
always a good thing to do every once in awhile, right?
we've been dying to see a few movies lately, and so we headed to a matinee of
king's speech.
and incredible film, if i do say so myself.

have you seen it?
you have got to, if you haven't.
so brilliantly produced and performed.

and then tonight? 
yep... if i'm not completely exhausted after rehearsal,
we are headed the movies again. 
the fighter anyone?
we'd love for you to join us.

wedding dress

call me crazy, but today i wanted to pull my wedding dress out of the depths of
my too packed closet and "dress up" in my wedding dress.
i mean isn't it unfortunate we (us girls) only get to wear it one day?
let alone, just a few hours of that day.
i have been emailed and asked to post a few pictures
from the wedding and our engagements,
but... i am working on it. i am putting together a little collage.
so, keep being patient with me, and i promise it will be up shortly.
even though i feel a little strange posting pictures of myself.
(that's just not like me.) 
on the other hand, i have no problem posting pictures 
of my dashingly handsome husband.

so here you have it, here is one of many pictures from that day i miss oh-so-much.
it happened in the blink of an eye.
i would kill to do it all over again.
you would too, if you could have seen the priceless look lovebird had
on his face when he first saw me.
i am a classy traditionalist 
and of course i didn't let him see me until the big day.
and boy, am i glad i waited. 
it is one of our favorite memories of that day. 

shall we all go pull out our wedding dresses and play dress ups?
i think so.

this last weekend, lovebird and i walked into a yummy little store 
and discovered these deliciously colorful macaroons.
we tried just about every flavor.
wedding almond, pistachio, purple carrot, coconut, carmel...
my mouth is beginning to water just thinking about it.
which explains while i still have a massive craving for one right now.

oh, how i love sweets.
and san francisco, for that matter.

shout out to our famous friend.

get ready to be amazed.
will cheng, lovebird's best friend, is nearly a superstar.
he has an incredible clothing line.

the cool part about it is...
on mine and lovebird's little stroll thru a neighborhood in 
san francisco, we came upon this store....

and low and behold, 
the west is dead items were staring right back at us.

if that wasn't cool enough, we walked across the street to 
yet another store... Hello Stranger,
and there his stuff was again.

playing naive, we asked the workers what they thought about this line.
the words out of their mouths, "we love it. every person who works here owns a hat 
and we wear them all the time." they went on to tell us a little about the company,
which of course we already knew everything. 

we left the store feeling happy for will.
how impressive.
ambition is key, and following dreams too.
oh, and last but not least, we spotted this guy hanging on the wall as we walked out.

this is a big shout out to you will!
congrats on your clothing line making it to the "big world"!

i made a wish at 11:11 on 1-11-11.
worth blogging about?
i think so.
besides, this only happens once ever 100 years.
and once in a lifetime.

my wish is bound to come true, right?

i hope you caught this minute in time and made
a lovely wish as i did.

today i taught my new little ctr4 primary class.
what a perfect age; not too old, yet not old enough.
i've got a feeling these little ones will be my source of giggles and joy each week.

today lovebird and i had a delicious homemade lunch and dinner.
veggies galore. {i hate them, but i'm learning to love them. one of my many resolutions.}

today lovebird and i danced in our living room.
to our favorite song.
we are certainly lovers of the weepies and dancing just because we can.

today i asked lovebird a hundred questions.
why am i so curious?

today i was emotional. very emotional.
never thought "it" would be this hard.
lovebird understands my tears. and that is one of many reasons why i love him.

today was lovely.
tears, veggies, curiosity and all.

now i'm seriously in trouble.
i know, i know i didn't post what i promised...
blame it on this.
we are obsessed. gosh dang it. 
it is taking over our lives. 
i find myself humming the theme song at work.
what has gotten into me?
even lovebird sits with me glued to the t.v. screen. 
consider us hooked.

we are dorks. period.

oh, and we love our new apple t.v. 
genius purchase, if you ask lovebird.
{i was a pretty good santa claus this year}

holiday fun

 christmas has come and gone already,
but as busy and sick as i've been i'm just now getting 
around to posting about it. 
we'll let the pictures do the talking!

{going to the nutcracker for the 12th time, literally}


we had a yummy dinner at red butte.
and a lovely night catching up.
the snow was falling like crazy,
it was a perfect night for lots of cozying up,
laughing and sharing stories.

cute linds, em and laura.
sure love them.

jules, jane and cait.
what babes.

friends are the greatest.

this break with friends:
movies, parties, dinners, double dates,
new years, chitchats, black tie event and pictures.

happy 2011!!!

here are lovebird's friends.
we brought in the new year with them.

apples to apple, toasts, and....
our own ball drop.

 {first picture in 2011}

a puppy?

meet oatis.
no words quite describe his cuteness.

you could say i'm in love with him.

only one problem....

he's not ours. he belongs to crew.

santa brought him fro crewser.
ironic, right? considering i was the one who
asked for a puppy.

it's okay, i'm still in love.

coming soon

okay, okay. 
i know i have been horrible at posting this week.
my excuse, which is a legit one....
i have been deathly ill.

luckily, i managed to dodge being incredibly sick on the holidays.
just the days in between. yuck.

regardless, it's time i wish you a....

can you believe it 2011
2010 was great. in fact, there isn't a word
marvelous enough to describe 2010.
for starters, i got married to the man of my dreams.

it's now time to blog about our adventures in 2011.
i can't wait. 
i've got a feeling it's going to be a lovely year.

however, i do promise to blog about 
new years
our vacation
and share so many pictures!

see you tonight.
