Waiting and waiting.....

I've been waiting and wanting to post about this for a few weeks, but I only wanting to post about it if I had one of those count down things. For some freaking reason when I try to add that gadget it keeps saying it's broken. It's really starting to bug me. Anyway.....
One of my most recent goals is to get back into running, I've started training again and Richard and I both are going to run the Salt Lake half marathon on April 18th. I'm really excited about it because this particular race is my favorite. I ran it in '07 and it is one of the best organized races I've done. The aide stations are great, you run through out the city (which I usually don't enjoy that much) and then the finish line is AWESOME, you end at the Gateway Mall and there are SO many people there you feel like a freaking Rock Star! I really encourage anyone and everyone to come and run it, it's so fun and feels so good when you cross the finish line. It really is such a rewarding feeling. Well, it's rewarding if you've been training and working hard to get there, if you're one of those natural runners or whatever then I don't really care for you or how you feel when you cross the finish line... Or I'm just jealous.

There you have it, that's what's been going on in my life, and as soon as that freaking gadget gets working I'll make a count down to race day. And my birthday of course. (Did my font just change? I didn't do that on purpose... weird)

Utah game at Nicoles

Brooklyn is such a sass. I posted a lot of pictures here, I just couldn't pick of few there were too many of my cute nieces and nephews.
Andee, Whit and Lex singing and dancing

Here's Brooklyn and Katy Bug

Here's Kimball I can't believe how big he's getting

Cashe loves to be naked, it's hilarious, Rhead and Lindsay are always trying to explain to him that he needs to keep his clothes on, it cracks me up.

Here's Brooke and Dawson (above)

Taylor, Roy and Drew

Justin, Davis and Me, they were talking trash to me the whole game, they were just jealous because Utah had a way better season than Boise.

Here's Katy bug in her dance outfit

This picture is funny because I told Brooke I wanted to take a picture of her in her Boise shirt, she was fooled.
This picture is a little blurry but I wanted to show Brooke in her Boise Bronco outfit, she was really out of place but we still let her sit by us.

Above is my niece Brooklyn they were all playing dress up.

Here's Davis in his awesome new football sweatshirt given to him by Grandma Joan

Lindsay and me above

Brooke is really happy in this picture, if you're wondering why it's because she's stirring caramel, we Kelly's can't get enough of our goodies! (Notice the bottom right corner, that's the last picture we have of our George Forman before it was stolen.... so sad)
If you're wondering why Richard isn't in any of these pictures it's because I told him that I couldn't watch the game with him, it stresses me out too much. Had I know Utah was going to kill Alabama I would have been ok to watch it together. Don't worry we met up later and celebrated, it was fun.

So all these posts are backwards, start from the bottom if you want. I started with trying to post some preview wedding pictures, I initially wanted those at the top... what can you do huh?

Honeymoon continued.....

Here are just some random pictures of us. Our sad faces are because we were leaving.

More of Costa Rica

Here are some random pictures of us, and monkeys and this crazy crab we saw in the rain forest. We were on the Pacific side which is a tad different than the Caribbean side which we went to last February. The food on the Pacific side was a little bit better, and the showers were a lot better, but the ocean and the beaches were prettier on the Caribbean side the Caribbean side was also less touristy. Being that this was our honeymoon, that also made the Pacific side all the better.

The Suite

I don't think I can say enough about the place we stayed, it was called the Issimo Suites and sweet it was! Each picture I've posted of our view was either from our awesome bed that was up in a loft (honestly the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in) or downstairs. The one picture looks like we took it from outside, but that was really taken from our window. The window was HUGE, it took up the entire wall, I really could go on and on. We'd come home at night after dinner and there would be candles lit all around the jacuzzi and the bath would be drawn with flowers pettles in it, the shower was awesome as well. I'm sorry but Rich and I are used to staying in crappy hostels so this was real treat.


Rich and I started the honeymoon by staying at Hotel Monaco in downtown Salt Lake, that's where we got those SWEET robes. We then flew to Costa Rica where we stayed one night in San Jose. The next morning we took a taxi (the van you see us in) over to Manuel Antonio. He made a stop on this bridge where crocodiles lived underneath. It was a little freaky but very cool we got to see them. We counted 19 of them, I don't know what they're waiting for down there... someone to fall in...??


Richard and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to get married. The weather was amazing and the trees along with everything else was just about perfect. Here's a cute picture of my mom and Ash, my cute little grandma and Rich, my sisters and my flower girls. I had 11 flower girls and they all looked so pretty in their dresses.

Wedding preview

I'm sorry but I really liked my hair on my wedding day. Here are some pictures of me getting ready. Nique did my makeup and the girl that did my hair honestly did it in about 45 minutes. She was crazy good. Ash also slept at my house the night before and got ready with me in the morning. That was really fun.

My car got broken into again last night! For those of you who don't know a few days before our wedding my car window was broken and my ipod was stolen. Well last night I actually heard a car alarm go off and then my neighbor runnig outside. Come to find out his car was broken into as well as mine. I was so mad because I forgot to lock my freaking car (who knows, maybe had I locked it I would be paying for a broken window again) and the worst part is that I had left my George Forman that we got for our wedding in the car. Yesterday I went shopping with my sisters and had to take in a bunch of stuff, so my hands were full and I forgot my G.F. in the car. Well some A** HOLE (sorry mom) will have delicious dinners from now on. Oh and I forgot, that same A** HOLE will also have a nice place to sleep because he stole my mom's blow up mattress that I had in my car (again, sorry mom). SERIOUSLY what is wrong with these people! Rich and I are going to see about breaking our lease and moving. It totally sucks when you don't feel like you're safe. SERIOUSLY!!!!

Wedding Pictures!

I got my wedding pictures! I'm trying to figure out how I want to post them so sit tight, they're coming. I'd like to just post a slide show but I'm still new to blogging and I can't figure it out.
