He's back...

Jerry came to visit me again... It is kind of his annual trip now. What a wonderful tradition!

We went shopping, Jerry climbed a rock wall, we went to a laser show downtown (twice), we visited the Flight Museum, we ate lots of yummy food, we visited the aquarium, we saw and hiked to the bottom of Snoqualmie Falls, listened to some monks, and had a really great weekend!

Whenever I have visitors it always reminds me of how much I love it here! I am so grateful to live in such a beautiful place where I feel so at home. I'm also grateful for sweet visitors and friends!

I have no doubt that Jerry would fit in around here...

New Love

I thought the title might catch your attention huh? Sorry, I'm still single.

The holidays were amazing this year! I had the greatest Christmas at home. We even had record breaking numbers at my parent's house on Christmas Eve. It was especially fun to have my sister's family there. Christmas just isn't the same without them! This Christmas also happened to be Andrew's last Christmas before he goes on his mission later this year. Crazy! It's funny because everytime I go home all I want to do is be with my family. It hasn't always been like that. I just value them so much more now and feel like I can't express just how much I really do love them.

I also had a fantastic New Year! This year I was downtown Seattle at the LDS dance which was at the Seattle center. It was a lot of fun to be downtown, the energy was awesome and we even saw the fireworks that went off the Space Needle! I adore this city and the people I have met here, and I can't think of a better way to welcome in the New Year than with all my Seattle peeps!

As soon as I get a new laptop I will upload pics from both holidays... it could be a while. So as you might have guessed it was quite possibly my most favorite holiday season of all time! It was perfect. I am looking forward to all of the exciting things and challenges that 2010 will bring! I'm ready for it!
Also, quick update on the Jillian Michaels thing. It IS working. With her at my side I'm feeling real good about this year as far as progress in that area goes. Everyone should join her program because I love it and you will too!

Here are some of my new loves...

1) Thanks to AubRee for introducing this to me when I was in California visiting. Now I can snack healthy and happy.

2) Santa Claus brought me this beauty.

3) Hot Yoga. It is amazing! Yoga in 105 degrees of heat! Sweat everywhere but tons of calories burned. I def recommend.

4) John Mayer's new album. Fav song - "Edge of Desire"

So there is a little update... Oh by the way... the trip to Whistler this year was once again amazing! I will be sure to upload pics when I can.

Lots of fun things coming up... Jerry is visiting again, I'm moving into a house, the Winter Olympics are only a month away, Lakers game in Portland, 24th birthday, and Disneyland again. I have a feeling 2010 is going to rock!
