Life has just happened the last month and a half and I have no idea where it went (but, I could take a big guess and tell you that school has consumed most of it- I am almost done with that dang thesis!!!). So it's time for an update and I looked at the pictures in our camera over the last few weeks and this is what I found...
We celebrated our 2 year anniversary!!! Has it really only been 2 years and at the same time already 2 years?
Happy Anniversary to US!!! We went to Universal Studios (we happened to be in CA visiting for Thanksgiving). It had been a long while since I'd been there and Brandon had never been. A lot has changed since I last remembered, but my favorite animal show was still there...
Brandon really liked the tram ride throughout the park and seeing the 'behind the scenes' special effects of movies/TV shows like Jaws, Psycho, War of the Worlds, Heroes, etc.
I think the life size crash picture is from War of the Worlds.
Next, we went home to CaliForNia for Thanksgiving weekend to visit with my FaMiLy!!! On Thanksgiving day, everyone except my Brandon (because for some reason he still hates running), my mom, and my sisters Terri and Dana ran in the Turkey Trot. It was SO much fun to run just a little 5k with my whole family (even the ones who didn't run were still there to watch).
Everyone did so good running! The above photos were some family pictures (minus Brando cuz he was the photographer and Janet cuz she stayed at UC Berkeley to study for finals) and everyone running at the finish line stretch. The below photos are us enjoying Thanksgiving Day dinner (I know I look lame) and some of what we did all week- sit on the couch and watch TV:)!
It was beautiful weather the entire time and we loved being home!
Then on some evening in early December, my bestest friends/old roommates and I all got together one night for dinner.
We are so good about having reunions periodically! I love these girls!
Only 2 more updates...
Since Christmas is around the corner, we have been up to Temple Square in SLC a few times. I didn't get pictures every time, but we have seen the lights on Temple Square and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert (love that!) and a couple of weddings.
Lastly, check this out...
I got an early Christmas present from my sweetest Brandon. I came home from work and he had a candlelit dinner ready. I thought this only existed in movies, but it was real!
