3rd Day of the Cruise – CABO!!!!

We were upset at first when we learned that they had taken Matazlan off our ports to stop at list - but then we were happy because the only day we were scheduled to be in Cabo was the wedding, and we wouldn't have had any time to play! SO, it kind of worked out that we got to spend the day in Cabo. We woke up early because we only had from 8am-3pm to spend in Cabo. One group went Snorkeling by ... Read the Post

Our new beginning.

I can't believe that after 5 years, imagining this day in my head time and time again, that it finally came!! My dad paid for myself, kari, and mom to get our hair that morning (after little sleep) we met with David to get our hair done. We had met with David the night before and finalized hair plans. I decided to have my hair done up instead of the beachy waves, I had originally ... Read the Post

My Maid of Honor flew in on Wednesday and Chad wasn't feeling good, so she came over and we sat in my living room on the floor and just talked.

This is kind of a story, so grab the popcorn and settle into a comfy chair. 5 years ago Chad and I met on a blind date set up by Jon and Kathy Fairbanks. Our second date was also a set up by Kathys son and his wife, Fred & Terri Fairbanks (now our best friends). Both 2 dates were to movies were Chad and I hardly talked. I was smitten :) Chad took my number after date number two. Several weeks ... Read the Post

Hike to Hell. Kidding, Half Dome

Every year our Singles ward makes the trip to Yosemite to hike Half Dome. A 16.4 roundtrip hike. I thought it sounded exciting so I joined a gym and "trained" for a month to get ready. Several days after Chad returned safely home from Jersey we made the journey to the top of Half Dome and back. I call it the Hike to Hell and back. "Many tears were shed." Ouch. Before the hike. Look how happy we ... Read the Post
