A tribute to my hero

I thought about how much I love my grandpa and thought that I would make something for him and for all that he has done for our country. He served in the Air Force during WWII and I have been so close to him throughout my life. So I made this shadow box for him and thought I would give it to him to show how much I appreciate and love him! Thanks to not only him, but to all those who serve, and have served our blessed country!

Isn't he so handsome!?

Poker, Craps, and Yahtzee?

Last night Ben and I decided to turn the TV off and play some good quality games together! We first started off with Ben's all time of course. We played a bunch of rounds and I was losing so I made him keep playing me until we got tied up again (which took maybe an hour!). After that we looked up on the internet how to play Craps. I quickly learned that I have the worst luck rolling dice. AT ALL! I lost EVERYTHING! I told Ben "I have such bad luck with dice! I want to play Yahtzee!" Uh, Yahtzee is all about rolling dice and Ben started busting up. I totally forgot how much fun Yahtzee was! Although I wasn't too lucky in Yahtzee, I still had a lot of fun playing it and screaming when one of us got a good roll. I lost twice out of our three games that we played, but it was a ball! Not to mention that eating cookie dough while playing topped it off. It was such a fun Sunday playing games with my man all night!

One Month of Us: Day ELEVEN

Day 11: The people you spend most of your time with

Although we do spend most of our time with our families, we have a close group of friends that we hang out with. Ben has grown up with a group of friends since high school, and some even before then. It is SO much fun when we all get together with them because almost all of them have girlfriends or are married now. It is fun because we all get along too. I always look forward to when we get together!

Saving Seats at the Movies

Ben and I went to the movies last night to see Battle: Los Angeles [which was awesome by the way] and I know that saving seats for friends early can be a difficult matter for some people. I personally don't think that it is a big deal, in fact...I do it myself sometimes. So we were in the theater and had about 45 minutes before the movie started. There was this group of people that were saving about 10 seats (fine..whatever, no big deal right?). This one random guy sits down in one of the seats that they are saving and the group starts arguing with him. He says, "You can't save seats! It's not allowed!" WHILE he sets his sweatshirt down to save a seat for his wife. The group argues, "Why can't we? We were here first, and you are doing the SAME thing for your wife!" I was afraid some sucker punches were going to be thrown. It was pretty amusing and made the 45 minute wait for the movie go by pretty fast! The guy ended up finding a different seat, but I don't think saving seats is bad. Agree?/Disagree?

One Month of us: Day TEN

Day 10: A Picture of your favorite band or artist

One of my MANY favorite bands is for sure Taking Back Sunday. I have listened to them since freshman year of high school and they are always my "go to" band if i don't know what to listen to. I'm obsessed with blasting their music in my car and singing super loud. was the first CD Ben and I listened to when we first went out! We went to their concert when they played with Blink 182 and I just about died! (literally...)

I have already mentioned before that one of Ben's all time favorite bands is Radiohead but I know that he also loves how artistic MCR is. They are also one of my favorites too. Black Parade is, in Ben's opinion, the best album that they have made and I can second that. They are coming to concert in Utah and I am really hoping that we can go!

California: aka HEAVEN

Ben and I took a trip to California last week. We probably should have waited a little until the timing was better, but a month ago my WONDERFUL husband had promised me we could go. We had a great time and it was nice to spend some time with my family in warm weather! We spent some time at the beach, downtown Disney, we went to Santa Monica with Ben's cute pregnant sister Amy and her husband Matt, and spent a lot of time with family! It was definitely a motivation for us to work hard so we can move to California as soon as we can!

Beautiful Huntington Beach! LOOOOVE it!!

At Rainforest Cafe at Downtown Disney
Me and the best of the best best friends EVER!

1 Month of us: Day NINE

Day 9: A picture of something you love

There are TONS of things that I love, the beach (of course!), ice cream, DIET COKE, cheetos, and many many other things in the world, BUT I must choose one that may or may not be too obvious. For me......

this seriously gives me chills. I LOOOOOVE it. Ben hates that I eat it, but being the wonderful man that he is, he lets me have some every now and then! :)

Ben is passionate about music, which most of you know. One of his favorite bands is Radio head, which I would have to agree with as well. They are such a talented band and I know that Ben loves listening to them! When we drove to California, we listened to Radio head for most of the trip. It was great!
