I have been tagged!

Normally, I don't do these things but I have nothing new to put on my blog. However, in case you care, I put a a few more wedding pics on the first post.

How long have you been together?
We met on July 23, 2006. We got engaged on Dec. 30, 2006 and got married March 23, 2007.

Who said "I Love You" first?
Danny said it first and was crushed that I didn't say it back. I think I said it a few weeks later, though. Now, we are both very good at telling each other often how much we love each other!

Who is smarter?
I am, I graduated from college. I hope he decides to pursue that goal. However, there are some things that he is a lot better at than me, such as, building things (hopefully, our house someday), handy work, cars, hunting, and fly fishing... he looks like a stud when he's fishing! He also has a lot more drive and passion than I have... my drive and passion is almost non-existent.

Who Pays the Bills?
I pay them because he hates to see all of his hard-earned money going away. But, he needs to be more aware of the finances!

Who Cooks Dinner?
I cook. He helps me though, if I am making enchiladas. Just enchiladas, he likes helping me with those, but nothing else... I can't explain it.

Who drives when you're in the car together?
Danny drives, but I wish I could drive more because I love it.

Who is the most stubborn?
Our opinions differ on this question:)

Who wears the pants in your family?
I think I do but I let him wear them sometimes:)

Three random things about me...
1. In highschool my friends told me I should be a taxi driver because I knew how to get everywhere but I would love to be a race car driver!!! I think that would be awesome!
2. I had an internship with the US Navy, for which they payed me to live in Spain for three and a half months.
3. I love longboard skateboarding!


And more Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey

This entry is inspired by a comment from my brother on the "new doctrine" post. He quoted a Deep Thought byJack Handey. Deep Thoughts was a segment on Saturday Night Live that was replaced a few years later with the not quite as funny Fuzzy Memories. There are a few deep thoughts that I remember. They go something like this.

"If a child asks why it is raining tell them that God is crying. If they ask why God is crying, tell them it is probably because of something they did!"

"If you are robbing a bank and your pants fall down I think it is ok to laugh and to let the hostages laugh too because life is funny."

"If you ever fall off the Sears Tower, just go real limp, because maybe you'll look like a dummy and people will try to catch you because, hey, free dummy. "

If you remember a deep thought or fuzzy memory please let us know by posting a comment.


This is why I love Hawaii! Need I say more...

NO! But, I will anyway. Today I decided to take a walk. The sun was shining brightly and I wanted a breath of fresh air. So, I dressed up and ventured out.

I was home in 15 minutes; I didn't last long in the 10 degree weather even with a beanie, scarf, coat, and gloves!
We would much rather be in Hawaii!
My love affair with paradise will never end. So, you all better get used to seeing the pictures!


New Doctrine?

It would be worth it to me to have this blog site for this story and this story only. This happened about a year and a half a go during our first Bear Lake Family Vacation experience that I described on the first post.

We went to church in Georgetown, ID in the red brick chapel on the corner of Main Street. So far, we were impressed with the meetings and speakers of the day. My (unbeknownst to me at the time) future mother-in-law gave a great gospel doctrine lesson that I still remember. My small town prejudices were beginning to change.

My sister, sisters-in-law, step-mom, and I proceeded to the third hour meeting, Relief Society. The meeting opened as usual with a song, prayer, and anouncements. Then the teacher stood at the podium and commenced her lesson on "The Condensation of God." Without making a scene I cocked my head to the side a little and justified, for the teacher, that she just had trouble pronouncing it at first, it can be confusing. I'll give her a break I thought. She continued with her lesson and a minute later mentioned how marvelous the "Condensation of God" had been. She didn't studder over the word condensation nor did she try to correct herself. Did no one else from the humble Relief Society notice? Was I, and my family the only ones trying to hold back laughter? Apparently, because no one bothered to tell the poor sister who gave the entire half hour lesson on the "Condensation of God."

If you think about it, technically, God could condensate if He wanted to. However, I don't think that is something we should start teaching as doctrine.

Well, they say God has a sense of humor. I hope He laughs over that as much as I do!!!


Love at first sight

This is our trip to Hawaii that we took in November. Danny fell in love with Hawaii at first sight!

We've arrived! And we all got hawaiian leis.
Even Spencey got a lei! This is Bubby's little brother, who was about 3mos old at the time. He was not a "go with the flow" type of guy. However, he was a perfect angel on the trip and has been ever since. Hawaii is a wonderful place!!!
Our first hawaiian sunset. Danny fell in love with Hawaii again at the first hawaiian sunset!
We loved snorkeling at Haunauma Bay!!!
We went to Pearl Harbor. It is a solemn place. This is part of the USS Arizona that was sunk on December 7, 1941; "A day that will live in infamy." These are the "black tears of the Arizona."
Hawaii is my favorite place to be on Thanksgiving! My tradition, that has become a family tradition, for whoever is there, is to go to the beach on Thanksgiving, while the turkey is already in the oven. Then we come home and shower really quickly, make the side dishes, then sit down at about 6pm for Thanksgiving dinner. The best place for dinner is none other than my brother's garage. Its awesome!!!No one can rain on our parade, except maybe the sky. This was a Christmas parade in Waikiki.
I had to introduce Danny to Matsumotos for shave ice! The best flavor is lilikoi (passion fruit) in case any of you go there.
This is the tower in Pearl Harbor that is also on Ford Island. See below for more pictures. We went to Sea Life Park and saw lots of dolphins, fish, turtles, seals and so on.
Danny holding a starfish. He was scared at first:)
Cute penguin!
Danny was fascinated with the shark. This was after his encounter (see below).
My mom works on Ford Island so we had a private tour. This is the USS Utah which, also sank on Dec. 7, 1941.
Just some monument that I can't remember what its for.
We hiked Diamond Head.
Beautiful view from Diamond Head overlooking Lighthouse Beach.
Out of all the activities Danny loved surfing the most! That is until he saw a six foot shark below him. It took him a few days to get back in the water, but he did it. My brother Jason was jealous because he's lived there eight years and never seen one while surfing.

Danny got so good at surfing that he entered a competition and won:)- jk This is the annual Reef comp. at Haleiwa Beach.
We were going to hike up China Man's Hat. However, it is about a 300yd walk in waste deep water and then the easy part of 20 mins up the "hat". We chose not to do this because to the left of the picture there were very dark, ominous looking clouds. We left and it started to pour 10 mins later.
