Nike mini's & congrats to Brian!

Please don't mind the ugly blog for now, it's under going some maintenance...
and my internet is slow so i've given up on trying to make it "look good." Anyways...

1. I just have to say this.... it sucks getting back into shape. Since we've gotten married i've kind of "let my self go." It's like the freshmen 15 all over again... but worse! It's only been 10 months and i've let myself go entirely! :) Soooo, for christmas Brian got me the Nike sport band watch that comes with a sensor that goes underneath the sole of my shoe. Everytime i run it will track my pace, distance, calories burned, the time and then it will save all of that in the watch, along w/ any other runs. Well in the watch there's a part you can take off and plug into the usb port and it will save and record everything. It's awesome! Along w/ all of that, you can create your own "mini." It's way fun cause the "Mini" will do according to what you've done. When i first started, my mini was super lazy and i'd catch it playing ping pong or video games. Anyways, that's been my motivation, watching it change.... and it helps! Brian got one too so we've been doing it together. His is actually a little bit different, he has the sport watch which controls his ipod and tracks his info in his ipod as well, so afterwards all he has to do is plug his ipod in to his computer and it will load everything. On the right side of our blog it shows our mini's and our "stats." "Mini B" is mini Brian, and boy that's the truth! Cause it totally looks like him :) Sleepy eyes and all! So anyway, i just gave a way too long run down on my quest to losing weight. It has helped so far. Just gotta keep it up!

2. Also, I just wanted to say CONGRATS to Brian! He made the Deans list at the W.P. Carey school of bussiness at ASU! Good job hun... i'm glad someone's got the brains in this fam.

A way PAST DUE post of the month of Dec. in PICTURES! Phew!

Ugly sweater Christmas Party!
I couldn't get a good picture of all them, so this will have to do.
I'm pretty sure Lanny was making goofy faces in all of them.

Colorado w/ the Baldwins!
They are probably one of the greatest families i know!
Brian & I had SO much fun w/ them, we didn't want to come back!
I love them so much :)
This was our fun night of decorating sugar cookies.
My sis. Rachele and the kids.

My niece, Tacye, made both Brian & I Christmas cards.
This is one of them... So sweet.

2nd annual Jungle Boys Christmas party!
Along w/ their wive's/ girlfriends
We had a white elephant gift exchange and Brian was lucky
enough to choose the gift with an animal in it...
Our hamster, Mitzi! She lasted less then a week unfortunately.
We bummed her off to Brian's bro, Scott because we didn't get much use out of her.
They then gave her a way a week later. I wonder where she's at now! Poor Mitzi...
