Yes I've been a slacker on Blogging and uploading photos. It's been pretty busy lately between school, work, and everything in between. Lately Brian and I have been trying to go run stadiums and do laps around the track at Hillcrest High School. Summer is on it's way, practically here already....and it's time to get in shape!!

Taco Tuesdays

Every Tuesday a bunch of people who are members of the NASIOC forum and own Subaru's meet up for dinner. They mingle and talk to each other about their cars and anything else that strikes their fancy. I know it sounds kind of random, but it actually is a lot of fun. You get to meet new people almost every time. It's crazy how many people you can get to show up to the dinners.

Graduation Photos

Just a few of the ones we took....


Congratulations to all the 2009 Graduates!!

It's amazing how quickly time flies, it was only 3 years ago this Friday (6/6/06 @ 6:00pm) Brian and I were walking down the aisle to receive our High School Diplomas....Crazy I know!! Preston Graduated on June 4th, 2009, at 6:00pm, at the E-center, from Hillcrest High School. We are so proud of him for completing High School and Graduating! There were some tough times through out the years, especially this year with Calculus. He did an awesome job at proving everyone wrong!! He worked really hard to get everything in and done to pass his tests and complete Calculus. A couple other things he received prior to graduation were: -Graduating from Seminary -Receiving an achievement award for National Honors Society and having an overall grade point average of 3.8 -He also received 2 Scholarships for College: Honors Entrance for Salt Lake Community Top 10% for the University of Utah

Preston your awesome! Keep up the good work you can do it! We wish you good luck with the new things that will come to you in life after High School. Have fun and enjoy life because it goes by even quicker once your out of High School. We also wish you good luck with school in the Fall, while attending Salt Lake Community College.

New Subie!

Yes, Brian got a new car! The car he's wanted in the LONGEST time!! You may think he is crazy, but it's a great decision in the long run. The biggest concern on his last car, WRX 2003, was it had a lot of miles. As many of us know, after so many miles or even hundreds of miles, your eventually going to run into problems that cost more than the actual car.
Brian had been randomly looking online at all the Subaru's for sale, mainly during the slow times at work. Keep in mind it was only to look and not to buy. During the time he came across a couple different cars he liked, he did the research on them and all the fun stuff. He quickly began to releazied that his WRX was a lot nicer and cleaner than any of the other cars we had seen. If you don't already know Bri is very meticulous with his car. He is a clean freak...mainly with his car, it always has to be clean! No matter if it still looks clean.
Anywhoo...on with the story, He found a 2006 STi at Nate Wade Subaru and wanted to go check it out. So I thought ok we can go look, it probably won't be as clean as he is hoping so it will be ok. Well, I was wrong! It was spotless in scratches, rust, dents, and looked almost brand new! We were totally shocked at how clean it was!
When we first got there, we had to wait for the car to return to even look it because someone else had it out for a test drive. Finally, when the car arrived back to the dealership, we could only look at it beacuse the people ahead of us were wanting to fill out a loan application. So took a quick look at it and left. A little reminder: these cars are hard to find in excellent condition, low miles, etc.
About twenty minutes later, the salesman who had helped us called and said the people backed out and the car was avaliable to be test driven. So we headed back to give it a test drive. The guy was nice enough to let us bring it all the way home to show Brian's parents.
We talked about the pro's and con's of getting the car and found there to be more pro's. So he made the decision of buying the car, on June 2. We left the new car at the dealership until the next day (June 3rd) because we needed to take off as many of the mods as possible. The next day he picked up his STi and left his WRX. He is loving his new car! He is dying for a nice day without rain to clean and detail it.

Easter Weekend - Spring Break

For the weekend we went to Escalante with Brian's family. We had a great time and we even go to take the dogs!! While we were down there the weather was kind of iffy...off and on with rain, hail, and sunshine. Yeah, quiet a mix right? We did a lot of walking and hiking in the great outdoors. After we arrived Friday afternoon we had about 30 mins before we went on our 1st hike for the day. We were told it wasn't very long, just a short nice hike, which we Brian and I thought would be nice after sitting in the car all day. A couple hours later we are like, "are we there yet?" And of course there were no bathrooms anywhere on the trail, only bushes!! haha yeah and to make thing even more eventful, there was a stream/river close to the trail. Only one problem...the sound of running water makes you really need to go even more! Anywhoo...at the end or of this hike was a beautiful waterfall! It's unbelievable how beautiful and amazing nature really is! After arriving home that day we went to Easter Dinner at my Grandma's house, mmm...it was delicious!

Max's 1st Road Trip

Missy wanted to drive lol

Tending Taylor

It's always fun tending Taylor! I can't believe how big she is getting and how much she changes each time I see her! With her being 2 years old and in her "terrible two" stage. Least to say, her parents say she can be a little terror at home, but when she is over at our house she is a sweet little girl that just wants to have fun and play. Nick and Carey, if you ever need a baby sitter...you know who to call:) My mom, Britt, and I have so much fun with her!

(Ah..sorry these pictures aren't the best pictures because I didn't have my good camera yet and the lighting was horrible.)

JHS Prom 2009

Lacey went to Prom on March 27th, 2009! One of her close "Boy" Friends asked her to Prom. She's not quiet 16 to date, but she passed with her parents and was able to go. Her birthday is May 10th, so she was close enough to being 16. Lacey ended up going to Jordan High School's Prom because her date goes there. From what I understood, he orginally was suppose to go to Hillcrest High School but ended up moving into Jordan Boundaries. Anywhoo... Lacey looked gorgeous in her dress! It was cute when she would start talking about her date and someone would comment on something she said, she would bluss a little:) Hope you had a great time Lacey Lou! I want to see all the pictures when you get them back! Here are a couple that her Dad (Stew) took before the dance:
Lacey & Nick (Her "Boy"friend)
Lacey's Friends: Lacey, Brittne, & Jordan
Lacey & her mom ( Chris)

Need A Laugh For The Day?

I was on You Tube tonight just messing around watching random clips and I saw this one and started laughing! This movie is to everyone who has ever had this happen to them! Luckily, it's never happened to me before! It probably compares or comes close to some of those blow out diapers many of you have had to change! Whether they were from your own kids or someone else's Lol

mY 21sT bIrThDaY!!

I Had an AWESOME 21st Birthday!

Friday morning, Brooke surprised me by bringing me Balloons and a little surprise wrapped in Pink. My favorite color! Thanks Brooke!
Friday I went out to lunch to Cafe Rio with the girls from work.
Friday night we went to Benihanas for dinner with my family. After dinner my grandma brought over a little chocolate cake.

Saturday we went to Breakfast with my family. After breakfast Brian, Brittany, Preston, Greg, and I went down to Gateway to go shopping. Britt and I mainly shopped while the boys hung out. The weather ended up being perfect, not to cold and not too hot! After we were done shopping we needed to kill some time before our dinner reservations, so we went down to the Subaru dealership..the boys were dieing to just go look at cars. Britt had to try one of the Subaru STI's out because she is getting excited to drive, even though she still has a long while to go.
After that we still had a little bit of time so we went to Liberty Park and just walked around. (A Lot of Walking for Britt and I! Lol) Eventually, when it was time for dinner we headed over to the Melting Pot:) We had cheese fondue for our appetizer and then chocolate for our dessert. It was soooooo DELICIOUS! It's a little pricey, but it's worth it! Especially if you don't go there very often or even if it's just for a special occasion.
Brian, Me, Brittany, Preston, & Greg
Brittany, Preston, & Greg
mmm...look at all the yummy things you get to dip into the Chocolate Fondue!I had to call it an early night even though we still had all these other plans for the evening like going to see a movie and stuff, but I ended up getting sick after we got home from dinner:( Yeah it really sucked and the only reason I can think of why I got sick is because I wore myself out with all walking and not eating or drinking anything since breakfast:/ I'm glad no one else got sick!
Sunday we got together with some of Brian's family; Jennifer, Lacey, Stew, Dave, Jane, and Kent. They made Tritip, salad, homemade oreo ice cream, and brownies.

All weekend I had some really YUMMY food! Thanks to everyone for a Great Birthday!

Drivers License

Well, I had to go get my drivers license renewed today. Oh yippe what an exciting time! Lol not really but anywhoo...It had to be done today because the state works four tens and are not open on Friday. I DO NOT want to chance a ticket for having an expired license, I'd rather spend the money else where.
At the DMV, when the employee was entering my information into the computer he kept asking me if I was from Tennessee, if I had lived there, or recently received a ticket in Tennessee, and all these random things if I had done anything in Tennessee. That kind of made me a little weirded out because there could be someone with my same name in Tennessee. Lol I know there are a lot of duplicated names throughout the world, but today it just made me kind of think that someone out there could very easily have the same name as me and I don't even know! Crazy to think about!!

*-*-bIrThDaY wEeKeNd!!-*-*

March 28th is my 21st Birthday!
We will be celebrating it all weekend:)

Myspace Birthday Icons

Can you believe it? Lol I guess I should be asking my parents that, hehe.

So far the Plans are:
Lunch with girls at work (Friday), Benihanas with my family (Friday night), maybe some shopping or something fun, and then The Melting Pot (Saturday). :)
Depending on the weather, plans may change what we do on Saturday!
