If we don't develop strong bonds with our family, how can we expect to develop strong bonds with our Heavenly Father?

This hour of my life every wednesday this semester has and will continue to be a big fat waste of time! This is my attempt at keeping myself sane during this hour =)
Still excited about New York! I am getting more excited by the second! Ryan and I keep finding awesome places that we want to go visit!
In case you don't know what this place is you should definitely google it!
Ryan and I decided after we were inspired by many many thrifting blogs that we would use our awesome flight benefits to visit EVERY Buffalo Exchange in the US! Wish us luck!
This is actually EXACTLY what we are preparing for! some SERIOUS shopping!
Alright guys this post is a little lame, but I DO in fact have to write a paper about this lecture so I should pay a little bit of attention!
On a final note, I've been spending a lot of time on this awesome little blog: much love illy!! Go check her out and congratulate her on her 1st year bloganniversary!!

On another note--I lost 4 lbs! YES! small and simple victories in life =). I'm also running a half marathon with my sister Elise in the summer! I guess I better get my butt in gear! I was supposed to go run tonight, but I forgot that I get to get my hair done by my bestie!! YAY for hair days! I hope everyone's weekend was great, and that your week is going as fabulously as mine is right now!
This is us in my more fabulous days...before I was even engaged! I'll post a new pic when my hair is done =)
Also, poor little Zada bug is at the vet right now getting her insides all cut up =(. Sad day, I wont see the little weasle until tomorrow!!

Happy Tuesday guys!!

Soo... Valentine's day isn't a really big deal in our little world. We love each other everyday, and we are sweet to each other...most days =). We've started operation..look good for Australia!! I've been cooking yummy meals almost every night since my last post...That means I have a LOT of pictures.. so.. bare with me =)
This was dinner um...the first night.. monday? Grilled chicken salad =) Xavier forced me to eat nasty grape tomatoes and then covered up the evidence in my wonderful picture--turd.
Usually I'm a boring breakfast eater, but this was my breakfast the next morning =)
Tuesday Night: Chicken Spaghetti--thrown together because I hadnt bought groceries yet =P
Wednesday Night: Taco Salad.. Yumm
Thursday Night: Chicken and Rice with Gravy
Friday Night we had grilled cheese sandwiches and soup and Saturday was our "Special" dinner (it's a good thing it's the weekend because calories don't count on the weekend right??):
This is Xavier cooking his GIANT T-bone steak =)
He thought I would try to hide this little fact.. but here it is: special for you guys!! I was NOT about to make dinner after a really crazy saturday, so... I bought the yummiest (and healthiest) mac and cheese and mashed potatoes and gravy from marketstreet!
So X totally called me out.. I looked at our dinner and said "aww dang it we don't have any vegetables"... Xavier promptly said "Are you just sad because it doesn't look good for your picture?" haha. dang.. so we added some parsley to the mac and cheese.. haha =)
I know those steaks were out of control huge.. don't worry.. we had about 8 steaks worth of left overs =)
Ok so I know this post is RIDICULOUSLY long... but I have to include these last couple of pictures.. so I was on A Yellow House blog by Cierra... I really wish I could put a link..and I saw a link to this awesome website that taught me how to make a sweet heart cake for valentine's day. I am NOT good at anything cute really but I decided to give it a try anyway =) I would say it turned out pretty dang good =)
I know it might not look that cool but it was VERY involved and took me a long time! It tasted great though =)
Thanks for taking the time to read my VERY lengthy blog!! I won't wait so long in between blogs next time =) Really! Have a great weekend!
