Date Night

Last night Zach took me on a date!!
We had a lot of FUN spending time together.
First, we went to dinner at the DODO, one of our favorite restaurants.

Then, we went to the REAL SALT LAKE game.
I had never been to a Real game, so it was something new!!
The game was great...and even better that Real won. (4-1)

Then, we went to Hire's to get some yummy SHAKES...
Strawberry for me, peanut butter oreo for Zach.

The night ended with a REDBOX movie in bed.
It's finally starting to feel like summer, and I love it.
Such a great night!!
Thanks babe, I LOVE YOU!!

I tried a new recipe, and made these the other night...

I know it sounds crazy, but I was craving them...Even though I can't eat them on a gluten free diet, I still had to make them so the people around me could enjoy them. It was the first time I had ever made them myself, and they turned out great!! Everyone said they were delicious, so I was quite satisfied even though I couldn't eat any. Here is the's SO easy so try it!!

1 box Devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs

Mix well. Roll into quarter size balls. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes.

1 square cream cheese (softened)
1 square butter (softened)
about 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

With a hand mixer, mix cream cheese and butter. Add powdered sugar slowly and mix until it is the consistency of frosting. Add vanilla and mix for about another 2 minutes.

When the cookies are cooled, frost the back of two cookies and put them together.



It finally happened...
The day we have been dreading came.
The final episode of our favorite show
We can't believe it is over.
Call us dorks if you want...
We have been hooked since the very first episode.
It consumed SO many hours in our lives.
Was the topic of countless late night conversations.
This show just sucks you in.
It most definitely sucked us in.
And we have LOVED it!!
The ending was great, and we are most definitely not disappointed.

Looks like it's time to find another show we love, or get caught up on gLee!!

After a long, hard year of school and crazy busy schedules
that made it so we hardly ever saw each other,
we decided that we deserved a relaxing trip to
So, after months of anticipation and finishing our finals week at school
we hopped on a plane and headed to OAHU.
For those of you who know us, you know that Zach and I are beach people.
We absolutely LOVE the beach...everything about it.
So this trip to Hawaii was right up our alley.
We had a BLAST!! (and didn't want to come home when it was over)
Anyways, here are some of our favorite things we did on the trip...

Celebrated our second anniversary...I know, crazy huh?!
Of course we had to celebrate with a little Orange Crush!!

Made four trips to Motsumoto's Shaved Ice on the North Shore

Ate WAY too many of these...SO worth it

Spent a few days with these two...

Visited Pearl Harbor

Saw all of the beautiful sites...It always amazes me how gorgeous Hawaii is

Being taken out to sea (sometimes against my own will)

Played in the Ocean!

Visited the beautiful Temple

Learned how to Paddle Board...definitely my new favorite thing. Try it!!

Hiked to the top of Diamond Head and saw the view of Honolulu

Spent time with each other, loving every minute!!

Ate lots of Hula Pie...our favorite!!

Layed out on the beach!! (my personal favorite)

Ate some Cheeseburgers in paradise

Spent time with our friends the Gelsinons!!
(They are living in Guam and were in Hawaii the same time we were)
It was SO great to see them, and we wish they lived closer...maybe someday

Soaked up some sun

And jumped off cliffs into the ocean...

We had SO much fun on our trip...and wish we were still there!!
Everything about it was absolutely PERFECT.
Now we are back to reality...
Work for me, and summer school for Zach.
But, it's SUMMER now so life is great!!

Love is in the Air

Zach and I just got the news that these two lovebirds are ENGAGED!!!!
We couldn't be more happy for them...
We have LOVED watching their relationship from the very beginning,
and knew that this day would come sooner than later.
What could be better then one of Zach's best friends marrying one of mine?!
