Valentines Day

Josh and I didn't do anything too crazy on Valentines.

However, I did come home from work to this:

Josh bought me my favorite flowers, a box of chocolates, a season of How I Met Your Mother, and a season of The Big Bang Theory!

I got him a new hat, a couple of CDs, a video game, and a couple of movies.

I hope you all had a great Valentines Day too!

Fondue Night!

A few months ago I was working on a big project in northern Utah. Every weekend Josh would come up to visit me which was nice because it gave him a chance to get out of Cedar and a break from studying for the NACE. One weekend we decided to go into Salt Lake City and go to dinner at the Melting Pot. I had been to the Melting Pot a couple of times before but Josh had never had Fondue before so I knew it was going to be a great experience.

Needless to say he LOVED it!

After that we decided that we needed to try homemade Fondue sometime. We went out and bought an electric pot, some swiss cheese (which was made specifically for Fondue), rye bread, beef broth, chicken, steak, chocolate (which was made specifically for Fondue), strawberries, brownies, cookie dough, and cheese cake.

First course:
[Melting the cheese]

[Melted and ready to eat]

Second course:

Third course:
The ONLY problem with the Melting Pot is that they give you too much food so you are stuffed by the time dessert comes around and the dessert is the best part! Josh and I planned it out nicely and broke up our courses so we didn't get too full! Between the second and third course we played Beatles Rock Band and Trivial Pursuit : )

Overall it was a really fun night! Just make sure if you plan on having Fondue that you give yourself a lot of time so you aren't rushed.

Happy Valentines Day!

Yep! I have a Valentine this year so I'm allowed to be cheesy!

This handsome man is the reason why I have been so happy lately! This last year has been one of the greatest of my life and I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Happy Valentines Day babe! I love you!

Play Time!

Josh and I got to hang out with this cute kid a couple of weeks ago! He is getting so big and he is at such a cute age!

My parents were so kind and got Brodee a train toy and a book ("You Are Special") for Christmas.

[I got a little teary-eyed when I read this to him for the first time]

Brodee LOVED the toy train so much! It lights up, plays music, AND has blocks! My parents got Brady (my nephew, who is just a few months older then Brodee) the same train toy and it seems to be a big hit with the babies!

Along with his new toy train, Brodee also LOVES Toy Story,

playing with dad,

and watching Disney movies!

What a sweet boy!
