The Big News

I have been dying to tell you all a wonderful little secret!!

Do you remember how we lived in New York last summer for an internship that Steven was doing? Well it just so happens that my husband has been offered ANOTHER internship this summer!!!! The best part is.... He was actually offered two. But he could only take one. This past year he has been working for the Jazz doing game operations things and had such a blast! He applied to a whole bunch of places this summer hoping to land a big internship that will look awesome on his resume. He knew that the Jazz experience would help him get another internship just like that one. So.... for the big reveal.....

The New Jersey Nets has offered him his internship for the summer!!! and do you know what New Jersey means???

New York is just a train ride away!!

We are so thrilled to be going out to the city again this summer. Things will definitely be different, but in a good way! for starters, we are driving across the country to get there this year! (We have a whole week planned to get there!) And we are going to be living in a house in Jersey with the sweetest girl ever named Michelle. We met her last summer and had such a great time with her! She said we HAD to live with her if we ever came back.

I just can't wait. It almost makes me cry thinking of the sweaty subway tunnels, the smelly garbage lining the streets, the loads of people everywhere!! ha oh there are so many great things about New York that I love. I mostly love that we get to experience it again! Believe it or not but an entire summer isn't enough time to do everything you want to do! We already have an agenda planned!

So bring it on New York/New Jersey!! We are ready for the summer ahead!!

Doesn't this picture just make you want to scream with excitement?!

Catching up!!!

My Poor Computer.....

Dear Kylie,
Ever since you got an iphone I have become a thing of the past.
You never use me for anything anymore... I feel abandoned and never even get turned on!

I'm sorry computer!! its true though.. I did get a new phone (the coolest phone I have ever owned by the way!) And now my computer never gets turned on. Which means I haven't been on to blog in months! So here is a serious update on our life!!!

For my BIRTHDAY Steven told me we were doing something, but it was a surprise and I couldn't know what it was. He then started driving me up north and said we were going to Idaho to get on a plane and fly to Vegas for the weekend. (It was my 21st birthday so he thought I might have fun testing my luck at gambling.) But as we were driving he said we would take a detour to Logan to get dessert. We pulled up to the Anniversary Inn and I finally got that it was all just a lie! He was just taking me here for a night! But I was wrong... we got to our room and...

We did end up going to Vegas!!! haha just not in the normal way. We had such a great time at the Anniversary Inn and I have to say it was one of the best birthdays to date.


I have been crafting quite a bit lately. I'm trying to make our apartment look something like a home and I just wanted to share a few of my little projects I have been working on!

SPRING BREAK was last week and Steven and I for reals went to Vegas! ha we stayed at the Planet Hollywood for about three days and just played around town while we were there. We Say Penn and Teller (the best magic show I have ever seen!) and I got to gamble for my first time! We had a good time, but we lost a lot of money! haha what do you expect though right? Anyway, our favorite part was we got this really cool buffet pass with our room that allowed us to visit 7 different buffets in 24 hours!! Oh and did I mention it is unlimited access in those 24 hours?? Lets just say we each have a nice little spare tire growing around our mid section right about now... It was so fun though! We went to the Rio buffet (supposedly the biggest one in the world, or at least Vegas) the Spice Market Buffet (Planet Hollywood's buffet and some of the best food you will ever have!) Le Village (Paris's buffet, the BEST food ever!!! and its all a little french :) We visited all of those Buffets in just one day! it was bad. We ate food from all around the world and ate sweets like no person should ever eat! haha but it was all worth it.

Oops finger in the way! He was just too cute to leave this pic out!

Serendipity's famous frozen hot chocolate!

After Vegas we drove back to St. George to stay with Steven's mom. We did absolutely nothing while we were there! (which made us feel even worse for eating all that food then being lazy for the rest of the week) We didn't care though. We had a good break from school and work and all that jazz. My mother in law was so cute and took me to one of the best fabric stores I have ever been to. She felt bad because for our wedding she made us both some cute blankets and after I washed mine once it was just never the same :(. So we went back to make me another one! I told her that Steve always stole my blanket so we needed to make this one extra girly. And did we ever! It is so stinking cute I almost don't want to use it! Not only is it sooo cute but it looks like it was made for a 7 year old girl! haha even better.... So here it is! I have to show it off because I am so proud I helped make it!

A little bit of Mini Golfing action! Steve was so serious about keeping score! Thats what he was doing in this picture.

All in all we had such a great week! Now its back to school and work again. Good news though! We only have about 4 weeks left! and there may or may not be a small surprise in store for our future (cough, cough summertime on the East coast is our favorite time of year:)) I MAY be telling you about that latter. But for right now you'll just have to wait and see!

It feels good to be blogging again. Sorry computer for abandoning you! We should have Friday night dates more often :)
