The Princess

Say hello to my "Princess," Lindsey Belle.  Lindsey doesn't know that I'm blogging this cause she's at work; I wanted to give a little plug about how she's the raddest wife on the planet.  My little chef has been working and cooking 24 hours a day for the past three's unreal at how good she is getting at this cooking stuff.  I went to school with her yesterday, kinda like a take your friend to school day, and she was choppin..slicing..and an Iron Chef.  Not only is Linds a great chef, she's by far the coolest chick to have around; always wanting to play rummikub, go out on the town (Provo that is), make hot chocolate, find new music to listen to, and just chill at home to watch our favorite shows.  You rock Linny, love you.

its about time...

so since my life has been so crazy lately, and i don't have time to take cool photos documenting our life, i thought i could finally blog about my favorite band in the whole world...Tegan and Sara. I am very passionate about their music. they have been my life backup singers for the past 4 years. sometimes we part for a few weeks or months but we always seem to find our way back to each other. nick likes them too! but usually he only listens to them when "we are apart for a long time and he needs to get the feeling of me back." so enjoy...

Tegan & Sara - Behind Closed Doors 6 [Paradiso Amsterdam]

this is a long video but it really has most of the classics.

happy birthday BRITNEY

we have a confession...we love Britney! I love her a little more than nick; although, he does bump to her in the car from time to time. We watched her documentary the other night and it got us psyched about her new cd. Her beats are seriously the bomb! The only thing that could make this music year better is if Justin would give us a new album. Happy Birthday Britney...

sad it's over

We love you long vacation, and don't want you to end! This week has been heaven! I miss sleeping in and being lazy and hanging out with my lover 24/7. I have the best family in the world...We had the best Thanksgiving ever. I will blog about that later but we are going to watch Desperate Housewives first! Can't wait!

Sometimes we like to sit in the hallway and eat and listen to music...Just us

chuck...happy birthday

today is the birthday of my life long friend Miss Arrienne Mae Shaw Winzeler (Chuck). She is my best friend! She knows me better than anyone else. Even Nick. Some of my favorite memories and favorite things about Chuck are as follows:
flooding of the jacuzzi (Scarred me for life)
living in the camper
all of our clubs that never lasted longer than a week
the hut
spending all day cleaning both of our houses just so we could have a sleep-over
sneeking Michael Jackson and Tori Amos music videos
Ever After
cutting your hair. (layers)
dressing up in your moms scarfs
having tea parties at grandma Ivy's
"take me now"
heart to hearts that lasted all night long
barbies barbies barbies
discovering how to microwave carrots
picking strawberries
"get out of my way"
sumo wrestling on the tramp
after church snacking
exchanging kinky tips
sugar and spice (gotta hold on, gotta have fun, make things right)
I could go on forever. I am so grateful for her. She has been a blessing in my life. It has almost been 20 years and I couldn't love her more. I hope you have a perfect birthday girlfriend.

So this year for her birthday we went to the Hotel Cafe Tour and saw Meiko, Rachel Yamagata, Emily Wells, Kate Havnevik, Lenka, and Thao. Even though I locked my keys in the car right as we were going in, it was still the bomb! We have the best time together and its like we have never been apart.

Emily Wells or "Delicious Vinyl" is what we call this girl above. She is thinking about her girlfriend while she is serenading us. Oh well. Different strokes. All the girls that played were amazing! Wish everyone could have been there.

Halloween Babies

These are our two favorite babies: Cruz and Allessia. Snow White and Boba Fett have never looked so cute. The funny thing is that their parents wore the same costumes.

oh the butterflies are still there

Isn't he stunningly beautiful. Oh yes I am the luckiest lady out there. I miss him when he is not right by me. Tonight nick had to work so my dad and I had a lovely 5 course gourmet mexican meal at Greg's restaurant. I love my dad. He is so much fun. So now I am at home missing my Nicholas and blogging about him. He gives me butterflies.


I am in love with school. Just look at what I ate for lunch today. I contributed the gratin dauphinoise potatoes that are hidden underneath. I am a proud little momma although my thumb may have gone through the mandaline while slicing those yummy potatoes. The one downfall of working with real food now instead of just baked goods is that I am getting new finger slices daily. I come home every day and nick inspects and bandages my fresh cuts. What a catch.
And this is me grilling up what you see above. My face is pretty creepy but the fire is exciting. I'm pretty sure some of my eyelashes were seared during the fun.

rummi rummi

Having family night is our new goal, even though every night is really family night for us. We looked up an inspirational talk about love and played rummikub. I am a rummikub virgin so nick beat me everytime. I love him. He makes everything more fun. I will win next time.

I am in love with hot chocolate and today's cold weather gave me a good excuse to make some. I tried this recipe, which needs some work, but it still hit the spot. If anyone has an exceptional recipe they would like to share with me...I would love them.

Hot Chocolate

2 ounces unsweetened or semisweet chocolate, coarsley chopped

1/3 cup sugar

4 cups milk

In medium saucepan combine chcolate, sugar and 1/2 cup of the milk. Stir over medium heat until mixture just comes to boil. Stir in remaining 3 1/2 cups milk. I love cinnamon so add that now if desired. Heat through, but do not boil. The chocolate flakes with infuse into the milk as heated. Top with whipped cream or marshmallows or if your like me, add both.

I know what you're thinking....Nick is publishing a post?  Yes, I'm back, well I never really started...but whatever.  I made a collage of my favorite material nostalgia(I had to specify material because if it was just my favorite things...I would only have a big pic of the wife...).  The collage includes the essentials...Harrison Ford, UFC,......and Harrison Ford.  The freedom striped boxing pants are actually mine and not Stallones; Sylvester has always had an identity crisis because we all know who the real Italian Stallion is.  Well....that's about it, short and sweet; just remember, this is only the beginning........ my  blogging relationship starts now.

back at it.

We are ready to be more dedicated to our blog, even if we are the only ones who look at it; it will be a good hobby. I have always had a hard time writing in my journal, so this can be an alternative; also, my mom just told me that you can have your blog printed out like a journal. SWEET! Problem solved.
PS. I love my husband...I have been wanting curved edges on my pictures forever and he just figured it out.
PSS. I love daylight savings time! I love that crazy feeling waking up and wondering why my phone says 8:30 and my clock says 9:30. The extra hour of sleep is also a plus.

We celebrated our first year anniversary on the 8th! I am so lucky to have such a perfect husband! My favorite things about him are..
His Smile, His laugh
His funny jokes and his voice
The way he doesn't stop tickling my back until I fall asleep
His motivation and hard wark
His style
The way he calms me down when I
am completely stressed out
His testimony and his goals
There are a million tiny things about him that make me love him so much.Thanks for taking care of me and making this year the best year yet. I
can't wait to spend the rest of forever with you.


Nick went to Seattle this weekend! Some highlights of his trip was the Fisherman's Market, Yankee's vs. Mariner's game, BYU game!! Ivar's clam chowder, the city, and playing with our dear friends Dean and Shelly. I will let his pictures narrate the rest

This picture is supposed to be like the karate kid...who knows?

This is the house that I was born in. Nick was so happy that now he

"knows my heritage"

Who doesn't like Bread?

So after all of my sanitation and hospitality classes I finally got to get in the kitchen...It is amazing! Our teacher is so talented and inspiring. While we are all struggling to form the perfect baguettes and rolls, he is creating masterpieces. Today in class he made a 7 grain bread that was unbelieveable. I am so excited to soak up as much knowledge from him as I can. Here is some of our gang...

We have been so crazy the past month doing so much fun stuff. Over Labor Day weekend, we went up to Park City and went biking, rode all the mountain rides, played games, ate the best food and had the best weekend ever! I love my family so much and love any chance I get to hang out with them. We laugh so hard at each other and I am so blessed to have my 3 best friends, besides Nick, as my brother and sisters. Also my parents make every activity we do together fun packed and adventurous. I love you! Here are my favorite pictures from the weekend...
