{Urban Boy}

Yesterday, the sun was shining and it actually felt somewhat warm outside. So we went driving around and Brade volunteered to model- he looks pretty hot in my opinion. It was fun to be out in the world having fun.

{Did I mention?}

Mandi {my twin} & Ryan {her hubby} are expecting their first baby this Summer! I am so excited for them- they found out around Christmas and I've been waiting for the ok to announce it... they will find out in a few weeks what they're having and that's when the fun starts! I might go a little crazy...but I'll try not to Brade! Congrats to the Wrights!!!

We were hangin' out with Brades long time friend and his wife the other night, and they have a new addition at their house! Brody is a sweet little guy and he slept the whole time until he got hungry. We grabbed a couple of cute pictures while we were there and learned that we both love LOST. Glad we got to meet their little boy-

{A few of my favorite things}

Valentines is one of those "cute" holidays. I imagine it's especially fun with little kids, to surprise them with heart shaped pancakes, sweet valentine cards, heart decorations, and extra hugs and kisses. I love the colors and of course the treats, but I also love that Brade gets me roses each year. They smell so good! I also love that this year I bought Krispy Kream Donuts for breakfast with pink sprinkles, and later we danced to Billy Ray Cyrus', "Don't break my heart". I got laughin' pretty good as we attempted (pathetically) to line dance... We hope everyone enjoyed their "love" day!

{Love is sweet as sugar}

We had some fun couples over on Sunday, in honor of St. Valentines Day, to decorate "love shacks". It was really comical to see the different styles in architecture and decor... Tyne, Jamie, Burke, Teresa, and us two, got some good laughs and plenty of sugar. Thanks for the fun everyone...and best of "love" to all of you tomorrow!

{Don't flip out}

Friday night, Brade & I headed over to watch BYU vs. UTAH Women's gymnastics. It was Awesome. Since I was 7 years old, it was my dream to be a collegiate gymnast. My Grandpa would record the UTAH meets and send the tapes down to us Ward girls and we'd watch them over and over; with the hopes that we would someday be one of them. Well, I never made it to that level. But I have continued to be inspired by the ability of these athletes to flip around on a 4 inch beam, to twist their bodies in amazing ways, and still manage to stand uprightly. So, here are a few photo's of the night. I dare ya to try any of these tricks at home... let me know how it turns out.

{Andy & Tia Stokes}

What an awesome couple! I don't think you can get a better combo than these two. Tia is a dancing queen and Andy is the ultimate stud, who melted at the sight of his girl. There was laughter, skipping, and even a slight rip of the dress, but we had a great time getting to know them in this bridal session. It's easy to see what a great marriage this will be. Congrats to the Stokes!
