This weekend we wanted to something fun. We considered heading up towards Flagstaff, but the weather turned crazy so we stayed in town. We ended up going to the desert and testing out the trucks off roading abilities.

Anyways we had a great time!

You can see the north side of Surprise from here.

Also, Here is an official picture of me at 14 weeks .

A little bump is starting to come out!

New Years Eve

We have had this problem lately where we cant figure out anything to do! Mainly its my problem, because it seems to take all my energy to even get ready, but at the same time all I want to do is get out of the house!
We made an actual decision on Saturday and headed up to the Salt River! It was a beautiful day, and almost 80 degrees outside! Believe it or not Colby and I both wore shorts!

We hiked down to the river, and Colby did some fly fishing. He caught one! It was a suckerfish and not the trout he was hoping for, but a fish is a fish to me! :)

 This fish had the weirdest lips I have ever seen!

The rest of NYE was pretty uneventful, we had dinner at Dennys, and then went home watched a movie and were in bed by 10:30. I wanted to watch the ball drop in Times Square but they cut out right at midnight eastern time to the 10 oclock nightly news. I guess the news was more important!

2011  was kind of a crazy year! It was also the longest year ever! I am excited for what 2012 will bring!
Heres a rundown of what we did this year!


We went on a last minute trip to Washington DC! We made it there right after a snow storm and it was beautiful! Even though it was freezing outside there were no crowds and we were able to do everything we wanted to! I love DC and already miss being so close to so much history!

We were tormented this month with the news of the Greensboro Call Center closing and having to make a decision on whether Colby should find a new job, work from home, or transfer to a new place!
That pretty much sums up that month!


We made a trip out to Phoenix with AMEX where Colby was offered a promotion if we transferred. Looks like our decision was made for us!
It looked like our new scenery was going to change from heavily wooded area to this:

We enjoyed one of our last months in Greensboro by spending time with family and driving around Greensboro! Nothing too exciting!


We started to finish up our packing and then headed on a 7day 8 night cruise through the Western Caribbean! It was the perfect break from all the chaos!! We also experienced our first crash while we were mopeding in MExico! Definitely something we will never forget!!

I left my job of 3+ years! We packed up the Budget truck and made our way to Arizona! We miraculously made it in 2 days! We got all settled into our house and tried to gain our bearings! Oh and enjoyed our new pool!! My sister also graduated from High School and we were able to be there to celebrate! Colby also bought a new truck!

My family came down to celebrate the fourth of July with us!

I was able to spend a week in Las Vegas with my family and was also able to catch up with lots of friends!
We also went up to Slide Rock State Park in Sedona with the Coltons!

 We took our first camping trip and went tubing down the salt river!

We went camping again, I endured a treachurous (sp?) hike straight up a mountain! We went to Vegas and went on a double date with my brother! And went to California to go to Disneyland and a quick stop at the beach! It was quite the busy month!

We found out that we were expecting! We went to Greensboro for 10 days! and we celebrated our first Thanksgiving in Arizona with my family!


Mike and Dalene came to visit us and we went to see the Mesa Temple Christmas lights! We relaxed! and we went to celebrate Christmas in Las Vegas!

Happy New Year everyone!!
