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.
