Viva La Vacation!!!!

Tom and I took last week off so we could spend some time together before school starts and life get too busy for us! SO we packed up and headed out Friday and headed down to Las Vegas! My sister and her family lives there, it took us a while to get there but when we finally did we met up at Red Rock Casino and ate at Salt Lick, it was so good and vegas locals favorite! We stayed at with Connie- my sis- and she had the whole dinning room decorated for Tom and presents for him to open! It was awesome she also has a cake all ready for him! We celebrated Tom's birthday.. thanks connie for making Tom feel special and doing all that for him! Your the best!! You can tell we had a lot of fun from our pictures- we did the strip, went shopping, on the log ride out in Prime Valley, went swimming- connie took me to a movie "mama mia" ! I love my niece Madison, she is the cutest little girl ever! Her and Kaden had alot of fun together and got along really well. Thank you Connie and Shane for taking us around and showing us a good time! Then we went to St. George and used up our timeshare by staying in a condo out there. We relaxed and went swimming and I had breakfast with my best friend from high school, Randi! It was good catching up and seeing her, she works at a salon out there. Then on our way home Tom stopped and we went to Cove Fort. It was so interesting knowing that President Gordon B. Hinkley's grandfather built and stayed there. They have the nicest couple missionaries out there, it was so fun!! Then we came home Wednesday and then just played and watched movies- we went to the gym to work out. It was so nice to spend time with Tom and Kaden! Then I threw Tom a Halo party, we had a good turn out and Tom had a great time!

Cabin Fever

We went up to the cabin a couple weekends ago and had a great time with our good friends Tyler Lindsey and Kylee! It was so much fun we went up on Saturday; we planned on sleeping outside on the deck under the stars, so we put all our bedding outside and set it all up. I put Kaden to bed and all 5 of us stayed up playing Uno and then Kylee feel asleep on the couch, so we stayed up until 2am playing hand and foot! We decided to go to bed, when we got outside we couldn’t see any stars and Tyler saw lightning in the distance and the boys quickly moved all the pads and sleeping bags in the cabin. As soon as we all got settled the rain just poured! Then all of a sudden the thunder shook the cabin, all of us just about wet ourselves in our sleeping bag! Haha.. It was so much fun! When we woke up in the morning everything was wet and smelled so good, Kylee and I went on a ride to look for deer and moose, we found and saw a lot of squirrels and moose! It was fun and I love you guys!

Starry Night

Last weekend Tom and I went up to the cabin with Steve and Kathy, played games, shared stories, and ate great food! After we rode around on the ranger, Tom and I decided to sleep out on the porch under the stars. It was a great night, and one i will always remember. Love you Tommy!

Romantic Challenge

I thought about things I can do for Tom to be romantic, and show him I care! Then I came across this list for everyday little things you can do to show the love with out a reason, and I am proud to say that Tom and I have done everything on that list, but I am going to make it a point to do everything on that list for the month of August! Join me and let me know how it goes???

Romantic Ideas for Everyday
20 romantic ways to show your sweetie you care no matter what the occasion.
By The Nest

1. Stuff a little love note in your sweetie's pocket, sock, or shoe. For maximum impact, try email.
2. Secretly load a photo of the two of you as the desktop wallpaper on your honey's computer.
3. Burn a CD with tunes from your dating days and include your first dance (or favorite) song.
4. Buy a heart-shaped cookie-cutter and use it to make toast the next morning.
5. Look up the date of the next full moon and celebrate with a champagne toast.
6. Learn to ice skate or in-line skate together. This works best when both of you are beginners — the more clinging to each other, the better.
7. Hate basketball and your main squeeze is addicted to it? Get tickets to a game. Despise musicals? Surprise your sweetie with tickets to a show. Go against the grain, and endure with grace and cheer.
8. Spend the day at a museum, holding hands.
9. Forget breakfast in bed. Have dinner in bed (and don't worry about the crumbs).
10. Go to bed early. No books, no magazines, no remote control.
11. Tell a secret — it'll bring you closer.
12. Create your own cocktail together. Then make up a name for it by combining your two names.
13. Write "I Love You" on the steamy mirror while your beloved is in the shower.
14. Go to a bookstore or music store together, then split up. Your mission: Buy something you know your sweetie will love. Then, wrap and exchange.
15. Have a picnic. It doesn't have to be outdoors, it can be on your living room floor.
16. Absence is an aphrodisiac. Spend a weekend without each other (substitute your best pal, your sister, your old college roommate) and plan to meet back at your place after 48 hours apart.
17. Teach each other about something the other knows nothing about. He can teach her all the rules of chess, or how to make a perfect omelet. She can teach him ten phrases in French and how to use the digital camera.
18. Get away from it all close to home — spend a night in a very luxurious hotel or cozy bed-and-breakfast in your own city.
19. Get dressed together — choose each other's attire (for work, for dinner out, whatever). Then, later, get undressed together.
20. Find your sweetie's car in the parking lot and tuck a love note under the windshield wiper.
