Happy New Year 2009!

I know I am good, posting twice in one day! As I have looked back at 2008, I realize, Darren and I did a lot. So here is my list of stuff in order we did last year.

1. Darren graduated school with his bachelors in Business.

2. Darren got a real job being a manager.

3. We went to Cabo, Mexico. (That was a blast)

4. We moved away from Happy Valley to Ute Country. (wow has that been hard)

5. I got a real job and actually do something I love. I got a job at a kid salon.

6. I got pregnant with twins

7. I miscarried a few months later.

8. We paid off both of our cars!

9. Darren bought me a SUV for the winters.

As I look back at our list I can't believe how much we did this last year. Now I want to write my list for 2009. In no particular order.

Get pregnant. (hope this happens soon and no I am not pregnant yet)

Get out of debt. (almost out of debt, we just have to pay off a little bit more)

Lose all this weight I have gained. ( We both joined weight watchers again)

I want to run a 5k

Buy a house ( We probably wont buy one this year, but hey might as well put it on my list.)

Stick to our budget :)

That's all I can think of right now. I am sure Darren has a few more he would like to add, but for now this is my list. Happy new year everyone and hope you all your goals and resolutions you make you stick with them and accomplish them.


I haven't been feeling like blogging lately, but I am making myself so I don't forget to talk about Christmas and whats been going on lately.

First of all Christmas went by so fast. This was the first year Darren and I got to spend a lot of time together doing lots of fun events. We got to see the lights TWICE at temple square. Both times were so COLD! (notice the pic above we are so cold we are bundled up and Darren is wearing thermals!) It was still pretty and always good to go there. Christmas Eve we spent with my family and that night we drove to Darrens parents to spend the night and open presents. We decided to go light this year and not get much for each other. I however still got Wicked tickets which I am stoked about. We also decided for dinner on Christmas to go somewhere nice, so we went and ate at Little America with his parents and little sis, Hayley. I was a great Christmas, so sad it's over.

As many of you know I am getting way into cupcakes. I love to make them and I love to eat them. I made a couple different ones for the holidays. First ones are my Ornament cupcakes I gave away as some gifts and second were some Peanut Butter Surprises. What's the surprise? I will just have to make you some to know.

Peanut butter Surprise cupcakes. YUMMY!
