Merry Christmas


Doug and I have been non-stop since we arrived in Colorado! We actually don't even have much time to post right now, but a picture speaks 1000 words, so be sure to visit the "My Pictures" link on the left navigation bar to see what we've been up to so far. Hope everyone is having a fabulous Thanksgiving!

Blistery, Blustery Day


Wow, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! We had a pretty snowy weekend. Friday night, we went out with our friends and neighbors, Mike and Nicole, yet again for a round of sushi. We took them to this place called Tsunami which turned out to be amazing as always. Doug and I had been there before, but this was a first for them. Afterwards, we came back to our place and watched Scrooged with Bill Murray. Actually, Nicole and I fell asleep for parts of it, but it was still a good time. Saturday was a lot of errands and getting ready to leave for Colorado this Friday. And Doug hung up that white shelf in our room so it's officially finished. Wow, that only took us a year. Saturday night, we had dinner with Doug's family at Winger's, and went and saw "A Christmas Carol" at a local theater. It was really neat as they sung, and the stage was one of those where people are seated on all sides of it. I had never experienced anything like it and it was a lot of fun. Today we made brownies and went to sacrament meeting. We only have sacrament until the end of the year as our ward split, and they're organizing it once again. It will be so nice to have a smaller ward again, Doug and I actually sat in the benches for the first time ever last week. We were early today, but still weren't able to squeeze in up there. Oh well. But check out the snow drifts in our backyard! The pictures will enlarge if you click on them. Then we went to Doug's family's house for dinner and opened presents with them. I can't believe his mom got me a whole set of china. It's gorgeous! I'll have to take a picture of it later. She did a great job picking it out, now I just need to find a place to display it. The rest of this week will be getting ready for Colorado, we're excited to see everyone!

New stuff


Sorry it's been awhile since I updated last, I have been sick for the past week and a half, and am just now starting to get a handle on things. I started out with a cold, and it worsened until it became sinusitis, or more commonly known as a sinus infection. I have been put on all sorts of drugs recently (including Lortab for the sinus headache pain,) but should be 100% soon.
A bunch of people from my work participated in this offer online where if you complete 18 offers, you can get things like a free iMac, a MacBook Pro, or a $2000 Visa gift card. Well, of course my first thought was that it was too good to be true. But then I heard all the tricks about it, and have seen about 5 or 6 of them receiving their new computer or laptop. Three of my other co-workers all sat down in October to try this out, and I just received my $2000 gift card this week! If any of you are interested in doing it, let me know and I'll email you all the info and tricks.
The weekend started out awful as we went to the fertility doctor Friday morning, with the bad news that I still have a 6 cm cyst hanging out on my ovary. This means we still can't do another round of insemination, which sucks because we definitely can't the next go around when I'm in Colorado and Doug is in Utah. So don't ask if we're pregnant, because it looks like it will be February at the earliest when we can start trying again. After the doctor, we were both pretty upset, and I wasn't feeling well. I showed Doug the gift card (as I had been keeping it a secret from him so it would be a nice surprise) and we immediately started spending. We bought him an elliptical, but right after that I felt so nauseous. I had taken two of my pills, and the combination of the two must have caused that. We went home where I lied in bed all afternoon.
We had some fun spending a lot more of it Saturday on clothes, shoes, and a new digital camera. The picture above was taken with it, it's so sweet! It also shows off Doug's new suit and one of my new sweaters. It's not very often money like this comes along where we can spoil ourselves, so we made sure we had a good time.

Here's the tree

YOU CAN TURN OFF THE MUSIC AT THE BOTTOM BEFORE PLAYING THE VIDEO CLIP, JUST CLICK ON PAUSE OR STOP TWICE. Here's the result of our tree so far. We've added more presents, but still haven't found any ornaments we like. Doug's home hanging out today on his day off, and I'm stuck at work with a bloody cold (not literally bloody, ew!) I'm pretty tired, so hopefully I can leave a little early. I'm going to Cafe Rio for lunch with some of the girls at work, and we're going to the Festival of Trees this weekend. I'll explain more about that later.
