Valentine's Weekend

We are lucky to have some good connections :) Mom & Dad bought into a time share a few years ago, and they have different resorts all over the place that they can use points and stay. They happened to have quite a few points left over that would expire next month, so they let us use some! The closest place to us is in Fairfield Bay, Arkansas. It was the very first resort the company built, so it is older than some of the rest, but it is really neat, and there is surprisingly a lot to do! We and Emily & Jake went up Friday night and stayed through Sunday morning. We went out to eat for dinner both nights, went hiking to a "waterfall", went swimming, and just tried to relax the rest of the time. It was a lot of fun!

Family Temple Trip

At the end of January, all of David's family met up in Jonesboro at Kaylynne & Micah's house to stay the night and go to the temple the next day. We had a good time visiting with each other Friday night and going out for lunch Saturday. It was really neat to have everyone together at the temple. Shandi and Sarell were nice enough to watch Scott & Tantely's kids so we could all go to a session together.


The ice storm didn't hit us too hard here. We only lost power for ~10 hours, and it was pretty much all at night. We were out of school/work for 2 days which was nice. It gave us time to get some things done around the house, and we had Parker and Melanie over one night to play and hang out. Here are some pictures I took on my way to work when I finally went back.

My Birthday!

Well, My birthday was February 3rd. I turned 23, which in itself is not bad, but it makes me think about turning 25 and 30, which I do not like. I just want to stay as close to 21ish as possible :) So much for that! Well, on Monday we went to my parents for pizza and cake and ice cream. It was a lot of fun. Then Tuesday, Dave sent me flowers at work, and we decided to go out to eat in Conway at Colton's with Katie & Colby, Celeste & Joe, and Stuart & Whitney. It was really fun, and I was glad everyone came on such short notice!

Me blowing out the candles - look at the girls next to me - I think they're trying to help me. lol

Random Updates

Okay, I'm a big loser and never update my blog - not that I don't have anything to update - I just am weird and want everything to be in order. So when I miss something I just don't ever post anymore, because I want to "catch up" first. Well, I decided that's silly. :) Yay for me! So, prepare for tons of random updates filled with anything that has happened over the last few months. :)
