Not your average LOVE day

We hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's day...
Ours was great, but not what you would expect.

I started out the day with a trip to the Salt Lake Temple
with my best friend Brooke.
It was great doing baptisms for the dead,
since I haven't done those since I was married.
Zach started his day out bright and early with an
Organic Chemistry huh?
We went out for a quick breakfast before we
both had to be to work.
After work I went to school, tutoring,
and then met Zach up at the Huntsman Cancer Institute
Bistro for a "romantic" Valentine's dinner
during his break.
After dinner I went home and watched my
favorite show, The Bachelor.
What could be better on a day of LOVE then to watch
the bachelor fall in "love" with all his ladies?!
After that, I studied for a test and waited
for Zachary to get home from work...
I waited, and waited, and finally went to bed.
Surgery went late, so Zach had to work until 3:00 in the morning!
But, Zach got to scrub in and assist in an awesome surgery.
So it was worth the late night.
Like I said, not your average Valentine's day,
but it was still a great one!!

I haven't had cake in over a YEAR...
Yes, it's been that long,
thanks to the fact that the flour in it
makes me as sick as a dog.
Well, my mom's cute friend Jennifer found
this recipe for's completely
and absolutely delicious.
Zach and my family even loved it, which is saying
a lot because most of the gluten free stuff
I make and buy is pretty gross.
Try this recipe. You will LOVE it!!

Cabin Fever

A few weekends ago, Zach and I headed up to
our CABIN with some of our favorite friends.
It was such a FUN weekend...
The boys did their "MANLY" things.

We played in the SNOW...

And did some SLEDDING!

We made a chain of sleds and had ZACH pull
us behind the four wheeler.

There were a few minor accidents...
And lots of LAUGHS.

There was plenty of time for relaxing, talking, and
staying WARM in the cabin.
Thanks for a fun weekend in the
mountains you guys!!

I may or may not have gone to the midnight
premiere of the JUSTIN BIEBER movie last night...
I DID go, and I LOVED every minute of it!!
I went with my 14 year old cousin Ellie and her friends...
And my cute friend Emily and her little sister Izzy.
Oh, and it was in 3D...yes, 3D Justin Bieber.
What could be BETTER?!
You better believe we danced and sang along to all of his songs.
Maybe I'm a little too old, but you guys, I have
Anyone who knows me well knows that I always have.
He is stinking ADORABLE...not to mention uber TALENTED.
I told Zach not to be surprised if one day I come
home with adoption papers, adopting little Justin Bieber...
That would be the day.
Wow, I'm embarrassing!!

A Runner's BEST Friend

I have been trying to RUN a lot lately.
I am training for a HALF MARATHON with some of my friends.
It will be my first ever, and I am super excited!!
I have a few months left to hopefully I will be ready.
I have discovered that I run the best, and longest
when I have some great TUNES to run along to.
This has become my new BEST FRIEND...
If you are a runner, GET ONE!!
This NANO is seriously TINY, and CUTE I might add.
It has CLIP on the back so I can clip it to my shirt
and run, hands free and without one of
those super annoying arm bands.
It weighs NOTHING.

Green and Yellow

This is who we will be cheering for today...
Today is pretty much a holiday for both of us.
For him it's a holiday because football is LIFE.
For me it's a holiday because football is OVER for a few months.
Hope you all have a great Super Bowl Sunday,
whoever you are cheering for.
