"Can't Help Falling in Love"

Lyla finally got to NY and met Uncle RonDon and Ali. They were all introduced over burgers at Shake Shack on Tuesday night (Ali wasn't as big of a fan... boo!).
Now all along, I've been trying to convince Ron and Davis to let me get a puppy, and Ron was pretty opposed, so I thought his reaction to Lyla would be mild... uh, guess again. I'm not sure if it's the swarm of 12 year old girls that she attracts everywhere she goes, or if it's Lyla herself, but Ron is pretty much obsessed.

On Tuesday morning at 6am, I got up with the puppy to let her go potty, and two minutes later Ron was standing there:

Ron: "Is she okay?"
Me: "Ya, she just went potty, and I put her back to bed."
Ron: "Oh, she's crying, maybe I should just put her to bed with me."

Two seconds later he was taking her out of her bed and carrying her to his bed where she spent the rest of the morning. This was after he tried to take her to bed at 11pm, and Davis refused to let him. This morning Ron took her to his bed to cuddle again, only this time she peed in it! Tonight, when Ron got home from work, he was looking at her admiringly and said to me, "I don't think there could be anything cuter than Lyla. She is the cutest looking puppy, and she has the best personality. I don't think there's anything she could do that would make me mad at her. She's perfect!" (WOW! this is the same day she peed in his bed!) And all along Ron was the one that didn't want to get the puppy.......

There's nothing that a perfect puppy can't fix, eh?

"Bills, Bills, Bills"

So Davis got laid off a little bit ago.... He was super happy about this for some obvious reasons, and I was too, but now I'm not so sure about being the only one bringing home the bacon. Having a stay-at-home-boyfriend is not very fun, especially when he gets to hang out with Lyla the whole day and sends me pics like this...I liked it more when I was the stay-at-home-girlfriend. I'm tempted to join him in his new daily routine, but I guess someone has to pay all the bills around here.

"Skinny Love"

My cute aunt, Cece, had a shower for us on Saturday. Somehow she convinced Davis to come for the whole thing (he even stayed for the tying of the quilt). What a guy, eh?
Davis surrounded by girls for lunch...

The other table...


It's kind of crazy how nice people are to you when you're getting married!!

"My Baby"

Introducing the puppy.. !
I guess she's worth it even though she kept me up most the night. Now I know what it's like to be a new mom!
On Thursday we took her away from her three sisters... I think this picture might be the cutest thing I've ever seen... There's still one left, and I really want somebody I know to get the last one... Then the sisters could be friends forever...Anyone want a puppy?

"When I'm 64"

Look at these two... Can you believe they're both 60 big ones???


To celebrate both of my parent's birthdays we had a little surprise gathering at Trio... It took some big time coordinating on the girl's parts. Boys are just not that into stuff like that, and then, of course, it had to snow a foot that day, and Pinkie does not do well driving in the snow... The odds were against us, but we pulled it off...
Here's the group... Notice my brother, Matt's face (front left) in this picture. It was his goal to look like his new freak show obsession, Peter Pan, I'd say he did a good job...

Tia picked up some yummy mini cupcakes... I guess the trend has spread to Utah...


Somehow Davis and I were coordinated... I promise it was unplanned, but it kind of cracks me up that this happened since neither of us ever likes what the other one is wearing...

Good times with the fam.... Holla!

"Let's Get it Started"


So, I guess wedding celebrations have officially begun. On Monday I had my first shower, kind of crazy. My mom's sister put it together... Here's the group shot of the ladies on my mom's side of the family...

Annie's like party of the family so she came too!


The shower was the big unveiling of one of the quilts that my mom HANDMADE for us. She's amazing!


Davis was a little worn out from having to "stop by..." After he fell right asleep with The Rock Dog. He's just getting ready for today when we pick up our little girl!!

"Baby It's Cold Outside"

We got some more of our engagements back. Lindsey did a great job, and was so fun to spend one of the coldest days ever with. We can't wait to see the rest. You can check out more of our pics on her blog.

"The Baby"


So, today we made kind of a big decision and added this little girl to the family...

We don't get to bring her home until Wednesday, but I can't stop thinking about her... She's seriously the cutest thing I've ever seen. There's just one problem... We can't agree on a name... Any suggestions?

"We Like to Party"


So last weekend we had a little shindig to celebrate our new place and Kellie and Leslie's birthdays. Brigham recapped the whole night... read about it there, or just enjoy these pics...









The next morning we recapped the whole event over brunch...




Holla!

"No Rain"

So, in case you can't tell, I've been looking at old family photos today, and they're cracking me up.


Do you feel bad for me that I had to deal with all of these boys??


I find all of our huge glasses pretty funny and strangely cute. Some people, are kind of mean about the glasses, and insist that I look like this girl. RUDE!

PS.. I think Rulon's stache gives Ron something to aspire to. He has a good start.

"Boys Don't Cry"


So, my brother just sent me this picture of my four older brothers, and I can't get over how cute these little nerd bombs are...

"Every Breath You Take"

You know that I LOVE myself a good celebrity sighting even if the sightings are from my trashy reality TV, I still LOVE them... Here's some of my latest goodies...

Chet from the Real World... The latest Utah Reality Star...I see him working it with the girls at church sometimes...
Leanne from Project Runway... I saw her at Mood the other day when I was shopping for fabric. I couldn't help but pay attention to what she was buying... Purple silk...
And what's this guys name?? I can't remember, but Ali and I ran into him the other day in Uniqlo... He's from that hit show Stylista, that could have been really good, but was actually really bad...


And now for the true celebrity spotting... Guess who saw these two love birds at Andrew Bird the other night?? That's right, and I was so excited by Penn that I made a little bit of a scene and then we chased them down the street... No shame here... I actually took a picture of their backs, exciting, right?? maybe I'll post it later....

There you have it... Paparazzi at it's best... D-grade (or maybe f-grade) stars... Holla!

"Meat Lyrics"

Friday night was my cute roommate, Leslie's, birthday, and we took advantage by eating lots of meat and mac 'n cheese at Hill Country. Here's the group...


Roommates...

"The Fall"

We did a little photo shoot the other day, and I had a little bit of a fall. Luckily, Josh caught the unforgettable moment! Oops!



We love our photographer and are super excited that he's going to do the wedding too! Check out his stuff here.
