And now the month of January!!

The new year has been fun so far! I am currently attending my fourth term of school (16 weeks to go!!) and am just enjoying things as they happen.

Shaun and I woke up a couple of Saturdays to go and decided to head to Ruth's Diner and then to the zoo! We have been talking about going to the zoo for along time, but it never has happened. I have wanted to see the baby elephant ever since see was born 2ish years ago! Anyhow it was a lot of fun. There is a lot of construction going on at the zoo right now so there were a few areas closed, but it still was a lot of fun! I LOVE impromptu dates!

Another fun thing we have been able to do this year is get Desert Star Playhouse season tickets! We have already been able to see the first show of the year, CSI:Provo. The show was so fun! I can't wait for the next show! It is going to be a fun year of shows!

Well I think that gets me caught up!! WAHOOO!!

Here are some pictures from our trip to the zoo:
Baby Zuri!
The tiger sticks his tongue out when he sleeps like Zoey does! So cute!



He sat like this for like 5 minutes. It was funny!


December

December was another busy month, but then again when isn't December busy? Here is what happened:

- I had 2 off-sites for school. They were both pretty fun and very educational.

- Shaun and I were also able to go out to dinner and then to Forgotten Carols with Shaun's parents. I LOVE Forgotten Carols. It is a great show with an awesome message.

-I finished my third term of school (2 to go!!). I got one A- and the rest were A's! I will take it. It fills very good to be able to get good grades and actually LOVE what I am doing!

The big events this month were of course Christmas and New Years Eve! We went to the Annual Wayman Christmas Eve party at my Grandpa's house and then we headed to Shaun's parents house (well Shaun and I did. Zoey got to have a sleep over and my parents house) for the night. We next morning we got up, had breakfast, opened presents and then headed to church. After we were done with church we headed to my parents to spend some time with them. Then I had to go to work... I should have been cancelled before I got there, but it didn't happen. I did get to go home after 2 hours which was nice!

For New Years Eve we had our annual fondue party! I love it! So yummy! It was also fun to be able to hang out with friends and family!

Here are December's pictures:

YUMMY!

The Month of November!

I always say that I am going to be better about this whole blogging thing, but it never happens. Life has been pretty crazy with work and school (which I still LOVE!!) and when I do have time I don't think about writing on here, but I have a few minutes and I am actually thinking about it so I thought I would take advantage of it.

I haven't blogged about anything since the end of October, so I will start there:


On November 5th, I had an amazing day, This day will forever be a special day for me. The reason why this will forever be a special day for me is because that is the day I received my endowments at the Salt Lake Temple! It was a day I have been working towards for a very long time and it is kind of hard to believe that it has come and gone already. I am so grateful for the love and support I have received as I made this decision to go to the temple. It was an amazing day! I am glad that I made the decision to go. It wasn't an easy one, because of the fact that Shaun wasn't going to be able to be there, but I do know that it was the right decision for our family.

I love being able to go to the temple and do other things besides baptisms for the dead. There is so much to be learned there and I am excited to have many trips to the temple ahead of me.

The following weekend I was able to have a girls weekend getaway with Christie and Brook (and Christie's family). We headed to St. George for Time Out for Women (TOFW). This is the fourth time I have been able to go to a TOFW event and it was just as good as the previous ones. We were able to do a session in the St. George temple while we were down there and just have lots of fun hanging out. I honestly can wait for the next TOFW event!

For Thanksgiving this year we had dinner with my Mom's side of the family. We had dinner at my Grandma's house (which was kind of weird...) and it was really tasty. After we were done there we headed over to Shaun's Aunt Cindee and Uncle Paul's house to visit with everyone that was there. All in all it was a fun day.

We didn't do any early morning Black Friday shopping. I remember growing up I used to LOVE going, but not anymore. I enjoyed sleeping in and just enjoying my time with Shaun and Zoey.

Here are a few pictures from November:
