Horrible Blogger

I admit it- I officially suck at blogging!
Even when I try to commit to it- I fail miserably!
Well let me give you the rundown really fast of what has gone down since this last pathetic post on Valentines Day.

Brent and I took a vacation to Vegas for a long 5 day weekend. It was a blast but we decided it would be the last one for a LONG time. Too much dirty there- billboards, taxis, shows, AND all the pornography graffiti the streets on the strip. YUCK! Definitely had fun though.

At the end of March I went to Florida with my family for week long vacation enjoying the sun and and of course Universal Studios! My family used to go to FL (we drove from CO) every year and do Disney, Busch Gardens, Universal or just the beach! It was a great vacation with great company

We went to General Conference in UT with our good buddy Lance. It's always fun to bring someone that has not been able to feel just the amazing spirit of that place and to listen to a Prophet's voice and testimony. Lance also found a great pen pal while there (a sister missionary with whom he is still writing.

I went to Glenwood Springs with Brent while he was working up there for a few days. I loved it and got to lay out in the "sun" and read a book while in the Hot springs. I love small vacations like that- might need another one here pretty soon!

Becca had some decision making to do- as in which Law School she wanted to attend and invited me to go to Portland with her. Seeing as we were some of the original people to read Twilight we decided that while we were in the area to visit the sights. I hate being a Twilight fan these days just because it has gotten so popular and Im a little embarrassed that I am but I'll admit Im a closet fan. Fun times Road tripping, hiking, and being Twilight geeks for a little bit!

Towards the end of May Brent and I then headed South East and visited his Aunt and Uncle in Georgia. We had a lot of fun hanging out with cousins, watching baseball games, and just being in the South! Love it. Brent also took me on a date night down to Chattanooga, TN on a River Cruise where we enjoyed Prime Rib, great dinner, and some fun dancing. I was impressed with Brent's dancing skills

BRENT'S BIRTHDAY was the beginning of June. We didn't do anything too adventurous and exciting. He was stoked because I got him a brand new Power tool set (even though we really haven't used them yet). But he loves those boy toys! 18Volt

And then of course we went to Alaska for fun! What a blast... Brent was sick and a little bit of a bum some of the days (mainly because I wasn't giving him enough attention while he was sick). But we had so much fun with Heather and Scott and my parents. Good to see the ol' Lodge where we (Heather and I) used to work. Who can not LOVE that landscape? I miss it...

I love the fact that I have the flexibility with my job to just pick up and take off with my husband when he is taken somewhere to work. Beginning of this month we went to Moab and had so much fun for another long weekend. Great dinners thanks to EnCana, went ATV riding while Brent was at work and laid out by the pool. Beautiful scenery.

The next weekend Brent's family decided to do a weekend up in Steamboat. Great food, great company, hiking, watching the air balloons, Gondola rides, touring the town, and tubing the river was all great fun!

Busy month- then we went to Bear Lake for the Douglas Family Reunion. I LOVE Bear Lake- Have you seen that water? It looks it should be on the Gulf of Mexico. Pristine. Family fun, great competition, wakeboarding, water-skiing, jet-skis (I got a little crazy and threw both Brent and I off but we were not hurt- it was fun), and of course good food and fun people.

Our first anniversary! Wow- one year? Didn't we just get married yesterday? Time flies by... We didn't do anything special for our anniversary this time around just a very nice dinner at The Chophouse. My family went camping at Fulford Caves this weekend so we joined them. Had a blast caving and getting dirty (Brent was a little scared for me since Im more adventurous and decided to lead the troops down a hole we weren't sure made it back to the front) He's a good husband though. We had some AMAZING food via the dutch ovens. YUM! And of course I love being with my family and especially the nieces!

End of the month- we flew over to SLC for some wedding fun. Our friends Jason and Tiffany were married in the Salt Lake Temple. Beautiful ceremony, and also some great food at the luncheon. (As you can tell, I love food- since that's the main thing these trips revolve around. We went down to Provo the night before too so that I could hang out with my old girlfriends that I miss so much.

Well we went to Texas! For what you ask? Well of course we wanted to see the BYU opening game in the new Texas stadium in Arlington. That's where I was born too! And what a game that was... So much energy coming from the BYU section! What a blast. We also were able to eat some Blue Bell Ice Cream which is a family favorite (Giblette's and our little Douglas Family now)and some Spring Creek BBQ. We also were able to get some Speedzone racing in too. Good times.

Brent and I also were on a co-ed softball team on Tuesdays August through October. No we were not very good- but we had fun hanging out with friends and enjoying the sport.

Well of course- September through December is hunting season so Brent has been gone at least 4 weekends now already elk hunting, bird hunting, bear hunting, and deer hunting. Oh the wife of a hunter... I like it too though!

Okay and the biggest news of the month is that I had my first ultrasound this month... Yep I'm pregnant! 12 weeks. The due date is May 5th! No we were not trying- not even close- we were preventing. But somehow I ended up prego! I was distraught at first- a complete mess really. But I am excited now and ready for the life altering change ! ;-)

More blogs to come! I pwomise...
