A couple weeks ago we got the chance to go to Arizona for a few days. That was mine and Caden's Christmas gift to each other. It was soo nice to get away. My parents have a house there in Surprise, AZ so we went with them and stayed at their house. It was such a nice and relaxing weekend. It was in the 70's the whole time. Unfortunately it wasn't warm enough to get in the pool, but I was just fine sitting next to it :). 
While we were there we did not do much besides relax and hang out. One day we did go and visit Caden's sister, Rainie, who lives in Arizona. We went to this HUGE outlet mall there (It's a good thing it is not here in Utah or I would be BROKE) and played at this arcade with Josh, Kloe, Curt and Rainie. It was a lot of fun and I am so glad we got to spend some time with them. The rest of the weekend was spent sitting outside, sleeping and eating :). Here are some pictures I took from the trip. I forgot my camera every time we went somewhere, so they are all kind of boring :)

This year for Christmas we stayed at my parents house. We decided a few years ago that we would switch between mine and Cadens parents each year forChristmas until we have our own kids. We think it would be kind of lonely waking up by ourselves Christmas morning.

So anyway, this year was spent at my parents. We had so much fun as usual. Tyson and Seasen came over and Dave made us all Holiday Martinis. This was a tradition we started last year. We then all opened ourChristmas Eve jammies which has also been a tradition forever...

Christmas day we got really spoiled. We both got a ton of clothes. We got a juicer and Ninja blender to help us with our new diet. We also got this awesome Tossimo coffee maker. It makes coffee, tea and hot chocolate. It is super fancy.

Overall we had a great Christmas!!!

Review of the past

So as the new year starts, I have decided to come back to blogging. I originally created this blog to document wedding ideas, but now I want to start blogging regularly.

I am going to start with a review of the past year...

Caden and I are still in school. We are both completing our Bachelors in Health Promotion and will be graduating in July (yay!!!).

I finished my schooling as a Medical Assistant and got hired by a Pediatrician in May. I absolutely love it!

Caden is now working at a pain and rehab clinic as an IT guy. He has also recently started doing MA work. This has been a huge change for him, but he is having fun!

We celebrated our 1 year anniversary of being married and hit our 2 year milestone of living in our house.

Our goals for the new year include graduating college and moving back down by our families! We are so excited to see what 2012 has in store for us. It will be a big year :)
