A little update so I can remember this time in our lives. Nick is doing SO good in school! I am so proud of him. He has gotten in the 90's on most all of his tests and has been so dedicated! He is so so smart and I am so lucky to have married such a smarty pants. He is so much fun to live with. Since we don't see each other very much, it is super exciting when we get to spend a few minutes together. I love him.
I just switched blocks in school last week so I will have to post some pics from my last block. Now I am in advanced baking with Chef Diana. Let me just tell you...I have found my new idol! She knows everything! So far we have made chocolates and about a dozen different kinds of cakes. I am definitly a cook, but I am really enjoying baking! I will post some pictures soon.

So I know my blog is ugly. Today as I woke up and was getting ready for work I was thinking on how I was going to blog when I got home. I walked out to my car and there were CD's scattered around on the ground and I thought, why was Nick listening to India Arie... That is weird. I get in and the jocky box is open... Still didn't click. Then it clicked that we had been ROBBED!!! So I called Nick and he came down. They had taken our Tom Tom, all of my CD's (I am still packing them around and I'll let you know there were some gems out of the 300 that he stole) my little sister's camera that she so nicely let me borrow for an event (which I was going to blog about but now don't have those pictures), and my chef's hat!!!! Luckily they left our ipods and my knives.
It is only stuff and I am glad nothing more serious happened. I just wish there weren't creepy people out there that have to steal to get what they want. So just a warning... Even if your car is locked, nothing is safe in it anymore.

STG Summer (Part 1)

The above pics are all in a jumbled mess but I don't

have the time or the patience to fix them so please bear

with me.

Nick has forced me into the world of climbing, bouldering

and hiking. I can say that I enjoy climbing with rope

and hiking a little, but I don't understand the bouldering sport.

I need to feel accomplished after doing

an activity and I do not receive that satisfaction

after going side to side on a big rock.

Next would be my adventures with Nick's hair.

Nick is very particular about his hair and

trusts me to play with it.

And we matched perfectly for work and I love when

that happens. It has to be an accident or

Nick is super embarrassed. Muah!

killer dana

Last week was the annual Scano family beach week

I know I have the entire summer to catch up on, but I am going
to bounce up to last week and catch up later.
We did a lot of shopping at the beloved Fashion Island Mall and hung out with this little stinker

Ate delicious red velvet and dark chocolate cupcakes from Sprinkles Cupcakes

Long boarded the pier at Huntington Beach

Nicky bouldered in Corona Del Mar

We watched the sunset every night

Cruzer entertained us for hours. Oh how we love this boy

My lover of course

Played on the beach for hours and hours

Late night stroll at the Montage

Stepped on a bee :(

Ate up our little Angelina Bella

Can't get enough of these guys

We went to the craziest place for dinner one night.

Knott's Berry farm!!! Chicken Dinner...Ate the whole thing!

monster house

Nick and I are watching this movie right now with
our niece and nephew.
There are so many funny characters, I am laughing so hard.
Some lines are borderline inappropriate.

But we still recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor.

Nicholas Jay

I think today would be the perfect day for me to start up blogging again because it is my sweet boys birthday! I can't post any cute pictures of him right now but I want to shout out how much
I love him! Happy Birthday Baby!!! Also I never thought that I would be a girl that would call my husband "baby", yet we find ourselves calling each other baby a little too much. I know...cheesy!
I love love him.
Happy Birthday

G Baby

So yesterday, our little baby was basking in the sun and decides he is a
little too hot...He plops down right under a sprinkler and doesn't move for
like 10 minutes. Who knows what goes on in this little guys head. All we
know is that he could entertain us all day long
We played ball today. It was fun

Can you tell which one is G? He is the one on the right. He is running for fun...
Larry is running for his life. Lar is getting really excited for Gino to leave this
week. He can finally have some peace without Gino nipping at his ears and
following him around all day long.

This pic is G to a T...

Another Adventure Awaits.....

It seems as though our life unfolds in stages, and the next stage is taking place in the S...T...G. That's right, St. George; I am returning to the place of my birth while Lindsey is re-lighting the candle of her college years.  We will be coming back to Provo for Fall semester, but it will be a much needed getaway from happy valley.  Can we get an Amen that school is out; Lindsey finished at the top of her class, AGAIN, and I survived the Finance Junior Core.
As of late, I have been enjoying my time out of school by shredding the Wasatch Peaks with my mountain bike; who knew Squaw Peak could serve more purposes than one.  Today was Lindsey's first Monday without school and she is happier than ever; she's been taking some well deserved relaxation by chillin with me and reading some Nylon Mag.  Anyone seen "Bride Wars?"  Definitely a must see; "The Day the Earth Stood Still" definitely weird and kinda lame, sorry Keanu.  
STG here we come!

Two Kids and a Dog

No we don't have two children, I was referring to Lindsey and myself. Has this semester absolutely blown by for anyone else? As fast as days have turned, Lindsey and I have still had time for some embarrasing moments (actually just me). If you're unaware, I work as a server for a local restaurant. The other day during a busy night, I was running back and forth to please some hungery Jazz fans; as I was turning a left corner towards my tables, my left foot slipped on a puddle of water and in the blink of an eye I was airborn. You know those moments in your life whether it be right before a car crash, slipping on ice, tripping down the stairs.......the moments where you recognize your mistake too late and for a split second, you have no control over what happens to you next.......this was one of those moments. I had to just let my body go and wait for the crash. Would this story be any more amusing if I told you my hands were carrying two plates of hot food and all my fellow employees were watching; yes it would. I was now on the ground with a bowl of hot Salmon Chowder covering my body and a Philly Cheese Sandwich spread out across the restaurant floor. I could imagine what everyone watching was thinking...."you are one pathetic loser"..."what a cluts"..."...."who hired this champ". I jumped to my feet and wiped off my face; how embarrasing. It's tough to recover after a fall like that, it does something to a man. Not a day goes by where someone doesn't crack a joke about that fateful day. It's days like this one where I'm glad to have a wife and dog that love me, even when I smell like soup.

A needed update

In relief society today they said that as busy as we are right now, we will only get busier as life goes on. I can't imagine my life any crazier than it is right now. With school taking up half the day and work the other half, it is hard to find time to do anything leisurely like blog. So an update on our lives...I switch blocks in school tomorrow and I am excited for Garde Manger! Hopefully I can whip out my artistic abilities from within and make some sweet fruit, veg and ice sculptures! The restaurant finally opened and is very busy and fun.... With school, work and homework, my days are jam packed and I look forward to Sundays everyweek to hang out with my sexy Nick! Whose life is also very busy right now. He has school everyday and is doing so well. He is interviewing for internships for the summer and our fingers are crossed for the one in Salt Lake. Although we would love to have another adventure this summer, we need a break! He works so hard and I just love love love him.

He wrote me a poem this week...

I love you here, I love you now,

I can't explain exactly how.

You make me warm, you make me smile,

I guess I'll keep you for a while.

He also painted my fingernails purple for me today. What more do I have to say...He is my dream lover.

The Gino Effect

How can a little dude go from this........ this.

Gino is bigger, crazier, and better than ever. Although his little puppy face is gone, we think he is the funniest and cutest dog in the world. He just learned to climb up and down stairs, a huge feat for the little guy; it took him a while because of his stubby little legs. Mostly, he just scoots his bum down one stair at a time; going up the stairs usually consists of him getting a running start and slamming his face into each stair on the way up. We love you Gino.

I feel better today! This week has been crazy crazy with school and random work schedule so today I took a day off. It is so weird to just do nothing. Cam came down this morning to give me some awesome new product and we have just chilled all day watching movies! I love her! We can just do nothing and have tons of fun. We laugh at all of the same stuff and we have the same feelings! She is my best best friend forever.

hmmm I hate the feeling I'm having right now. You know when your heart is beating fast and your chest is tight and you just can't pin point what is bugging you...Maybe I should just go to sleep and everything will be better in the morning. In the mean time...these pics make me smile

brotha I miss you already

Oh yes we will miss him...
We laugh a lot 
Oh my cutest brother ever! It is hard to let him go! Jeddy has finally left on his mission to BIRMINGHAM ALABAMA...For those of you who know and love Jed, you know that this mission fits him perfectly! Camie and I have discussed this a lot and we finally understand why people make such a big deal about their bros going on missions. We have always thought "get over it. What is the big deal, they will be back..." It totally sucks! Jed is the only boy in our family and he is so witty and clever and talented and perfect. I don't know how we are going to live without him. I feel so protective over him. I don't want any of the other boys to be mean to him....I want to be there to beat them up if they are. And what about those big mamas and papas down in Alabama? My friends have come home from their missions and say stuff like..."I was seriously glad when people would throw glass bottles at me because I could hear them coming...You can't really hear when a rock is coming at your head!"  What the heck! 
I am so proud of him! He is such a good example. He is so obedient and has such an awesome testimony! He makes me want to be a better person and I know Heavenly Father will watch over him for us.
