You'll shoot your eye out!

Merry Christmas everybody! Hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas like we did. Derek totally surprised me with this little beauty. Meet Polly my Welther P22 hand gun in light pink. Oh I how I love her so much. I never was into shooting all that much until I got my own gun. She is really easy to shoot and handle. We have only been out shooting a couple of times but it has been so much fun. My sister in law got a pink gun also so together we are going to get our concealed weapons permit. We are both super excited!

As a Hotel Management major we study a lot of hotel properties around the country. One class in particular studied the Hilton Costa Mesa hotel in sunny California. After the long semester I felt the need to go visit this property with my hubby for a little fun and relaxation. It ended up being such a fun trip. I'm so glad that we went. The first two days were so beautiful the sun was shining and it was in the 80's. We checked into our hotel which was very nice. The first day we went and visited some important things from my childhood in Newport Beach. We did a ton of shopping and walking around seein the sights. We went to Balboa island where my dad used to live. It's this cute little man made island that you get to by ferry that has little boutiques and these small million dollar homes. We also went to Disneyland... Derek had never been... it was a little cloudy and chilly but so, so fun. We also got to see our good friends that moved down there for school. The whole trip was so fun and exciting and such a good break from every day life.

CrAzY tHaNkSgIvInG!!!!

So this year for Thanksgiving we celebrated with Derek's family up north in Lehi where Desi and Jared and Dusty and Emmi live. The first night up north Derek and I celebrated our 4th anniversary which was Wednesday. Cant believe it has been four years. It seems like just yesterday when we were dating. Later that night or morning I guess, Derek's sister Desi went into labor and our newest nephew was born around 3:30 am on Thanksgiving!!! He is such a doll and such a joy to our family. Soon two more nephews will be born and Derek and I couldn't be more happy or excited. So since Desi had little Treven we ate Thanksgiving on Friday which was actually really fun. The whole weekend turned out to be a blast hanging with family and friends. Hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving too.
