At first I laughed at how ridiculous the employee gift was to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of Intermountain Medical Center...
But now I am secretly excited to spend Thanksgiving break drinking hot chocolate, watching  Lord of The Rings, and putting this together with Mikey. Bliss!! Yes, we are nerds :-)

We're fans:
Welcome to Lehi, B-Dubs!
This Monday I was scheduled to work, but for the lack of patients for me to watch....I got to go home early so we went out to lunch on the opening day of BWW. It was super crowded, but the wings were awesome. We're excited to go again with Zack and AnDe whenever they can make it down :-)

Finals Week

Finals week was last week and this is what it looked like at our house:
Mike...looking super handsome....studying hard:
Leslie.....hardly studying.....and stuffing her face with a super pretzel! Heck yeah!
It's no wonder Mike got a 4.0! I am so proud of him for working so hard at work and still doing so awesome in school. I'm a lucky girl! We're so excited now for Christmas. Merry Christmas to all!!

Happy Thanksgiving

I love food. Therefore, Thanksgiving is awesome. I love Grandma's shrimp salad....if I can get to it before my dad picks out all of the shrimp, Lisa's chocolate pie, and all the other yummy stuff. Family is fun too...especially the crazy kids running around.
I especially love that Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the Christmas season! I love putting up the tree, listening to Christmas music, and seeing the lights! My parents took us up to Temple Square this year and we went on a carriage ride. We got to share a carriage with Jackie & Jared and their kids. Santa's elf brought Gabby an early present...a Cosmo Cougar hat. I've never known a bigger BYU fan at 4 years old. She says she still loves me despite my being a "Stinkin Ute".

I am a stinkin' Ute and proud of it! Still though, I am excited that there are only 3 weeks left until Christmas break! It is hard to believe that I am almost halfway through the program. It feels as though I just started! I am also excited for Mike to get a break. He has been working so hard and doing so much for us. I got so lucky with him. He's what I'm grateful for this Thanksgiving!

2 Weeks of Summer!

Due to a recent computer mishap, I learned that you always back-up your photos, otherwise you just might lose all of the pictures you've taken in your first 2 1/2 years of being married. Bummer! Let this be a lesson to all of you...don't do that!
Anyway, Mike and I were able to enjoy 2 weeks of summer together this August after finishing my first semester at the U! It was so nice to not worry about school or anything for those two weeks and actually spend time together. We tried to make the most of it and took pictures when we remembered :-) Luckily these were still on the camera!

Hiking Battlecreek falls in PG...

(I totally love this pic of Mikey :-)

Made some awesome ice cream together........
(As you can see, we've become rather proficient with the timer feature on our camera so all of our pictures aren't from an arms' length. The hiking picture was especially tricky of us :)

And then to top off our fun break we went to Bear Lake with our good friends, Zack and AnDe. Unfortunately I only caught this picture as we were excited to leave, then the camera was lost in all of our other junk, not to be seen again until the trip was over. Go us.
We are already looking forward to our next real break together.....August 2012, here we come!!!

Mike's New Grill!

I am so excited! According to Mike, I won't be cooking much this summer because of his new toy. Here's what we had for dinner tonight! I am excited to see what else he'll be cooking for us. Isn't he the best?!

Future Ute

That's right all. I was just accepted into the Accelerated Nursing Program at the University of Utah! School starts on May 16th and we are thrilled! I am so excited to be a nurse and in a career where I can be constantly learning and doing good. I am also excited to be able to work and make enough moolah so that Mike can just focus on school and not have to juggle work and school! Who knows....we may even become fans :-)
