our life in pictures?

We went to the Clippers vs. Knicks and it was AWESOME.
Blake Griffin was incredible. He had two of the best dunks of his career. 
Or as Andrew would say, the best dunks he has ever seen live. 
Oh so beautiful and just woah INSAIN!!! Words can't describe.
Great game. Next is Clippers vs. Lakers! AHHH :) 

I found these at TJ Maxx they are baseball bat Pepper grinders. 
Cool right? 

Andrew's foot shrunk. Poor guy. 

The cookies that spell out happy thanksgiving that we put on the tables.

One of the Thanksgiving tables.

Okay you really cant tell but this is the freeway at MIDNIGHT. 
Black Friday of course.
Anna and I had never experienced it so we thought we should venture out.
Little did we know how crazy it would be. 

Another shot but this is the line to the outlets..blah
However we scored!! with front row parking. MUAHAH sweet day. or night I should say

Then we hit up target at exactly 4am and scored a TV however we did not end up buying it..ha
But I am sure we made some late riser a happy person with a surprise TV in the sportswear section

Happy Birthday Andrew = December 6th. 

Happy Birthday Anna = December 14th

I am a lame poster. you all are lame commenters. I am going to post our life in pictures now that I have a SWEET iphone and don't have to worry about hooking up my crapy camera with the dumb cord.

Christmas is coming. We put the tree up. It was a surprise. 
Only one more month and we are in Rexburg. 
I am stocking up on warm things. Bring it on.
I love Andrew English Superman Sorensen.
I like to play angry birds. 
Andrew is going to be the best Sports Analysts around. 
Back to work and homework. Blah.
Love you all.
Love, Alex & Andrew Sorensen

Isn't life just WONDERFUL

WOAH. Who knew that time could fly by so quickly. Not I.
I have thought about blogging a lot. I just never did it. ha too busy or too lazy. I need a break OKAY?
Well we have had a WONDERFUL two weeks! And the next two will be even more WONDERFUL.

Last week Anna & Sydney came to visit for the week. That was a WONDERFUL change. :)
People our age around. sweeeet
We all went to the Swap meet. Found lots of treasures like rings, guns, clothes, earrings, backpacks.. the fun stuff.

On Thursday night we decided it would be a great idea for Andrew & I to go for a weekend trip up to Rexburg to take Anna and Sydney back. Yup just for the weekend. thats 14 hours of driving. AWESOME. WONDERFUL

So Friday we went from Thousand Oaks to St George. Stayed there a couple hours then went to Provo.
Hung out with Sydneys family, they are amazing, sweet, WONDERFUL. We stayed the night then went to Rexburg. Once there Andrew & I spent a couple hours looking for an apartment to live in for next year.
And GUESS WHAT??? We found one. Good price. Nice. Big. WONDERFUL. Andrew is excited for the theater in the club house and I am excited for the work out room :)

We spent that night catching up with WONDERFUL friends and my sister Justina, brother in law Curtis and the cutest little guy named Taeden. It was so WONDERFUL to see them. Ah made me so excited to go back to Rexburg.. Strange, I know. Andrew is SO exctied for the Snow and Cold. Crazy, I know.

(How Cute are they??? Love them)
Sunday we slept and then down to Provo we went. Took a short break and then headed to St.George.

Monday = More Sleeping, Eating, hanging with Family, & went to this WONDERFUl craft store, Tai Pan.

WOAH it was pretty darn WONDERFUL if you ask me. Huge and just fun. I want a lot. I can't wait to decorate.
Andrew & I are starting a tradition that after every big Holiday we go out and spend $20 or so on 50% off items for that specific Holiday. It is our way of collecting things for the Holidays but not spending too much.

Now it is back to work and the WONDERFUL weather outside. I am enjoying it while I still can.

However now that I have seen the apartment and been back to Rexburg I am ansy to get there. I am really excited to decorate our apartment and just start the married college experience. It will be so different than the single life in Rexburg. I think I am also ready for a change. Although it has been nice to have these breaks these past few weeks, not just going through the same routine everyday.

Saturday = Clippers Basketball game. How WONDERFUL! :)

OH MY. I figured out everything for Andrew for his Birthday (Although I am still open to creative ideas..HINT HINT) But I have the presents all figured out. YES :)

Thanksgiving = NEXT WEEK. Woah It seems like it is too soon for it but at the same time not. Hm make sense? I am excited though. Lots of family coming that I have never met. Lots of Food. Lots of fun of course.

And then in no time it will be Andrew's Birthday. Which means MICHEAL BUBLE CONCERT. AHHHHHHHHHH I just can't contain myself. We are SO SO SO EXCITED.  I really hope he sings Christmas music cause it is so WONDERFUL. I LOVE Chirstmas music. We have already started to play it in the car and in the office. sweeeet.

And then it is CHRISTMAS. Which is just WONDERFUL all in itself. It is an amazing holiday. The lights, the smell, the presents, the joy, the family. It is all just WONDERFUL. And I am so excited to spend it all with Andrew :)

And then it means moving to Rexburg. uhh good and bad thoughts on this. Andrew is way excited. I am too but I don't know how I feel about all the snow and cold. Snow is fun but in Idaho it gets to be too much...

Now I must say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to three of the most amazing people out there. My little brother Aaron, my Mom, and my Dad. They all have a Birthday this weekend.
Aaron = November 20th
Mom = November 21st

Dad = November 22nd.
We hope you all have a WONDERFUl day. We miss and love you oh so much.

If you have had withdraws from our wedding pictures it will be okay because I have MORE!
And I could keep putting picture up but I think I will save you all from Alex & Andrew over load. So here is the last of them. These are pictures from the Kansas Reception. My mom did all the decorating, Teresa Lyons did all the food, Justina did the cakes and Dustin Izatt did the Photos :)

I must give a shout out to Justina for making the cakes. They turned out better than I could ever think of. I LOVED them. And they tasted even better than they look. it was just so WONDERFUL.
Here you go..

So Fun, and WONDERFUL.

Well we love you all and hope you have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving. Hopefully I post before then :)
Have a Yellow kind of day.
Peace, Love, Happiness
Love, Alex & Andrew

-The world's most expensive home is 1 BILLION dollars, 27 floors, with 6 floors of parking, a theater that seats 50 people, grand ball room, helicopter padS, and swimming poolS.

What do you think..

-Should we see the movie 127 hours? I hear there is a book? Maybe I will read that. Sounds good.. life changing good.

-What should Andrew get for his Birthday? He is turning the big one. the big TWO ONE. the big kahuna. THE 21!!!! So what do I do?
Maybe put a cake in his face again...?

-Where to live. Hm oh where is a good place, not so very expensive, that is IN REXBURG. Where we can live? Suggestions..please..and let us know about any place you have lived. I want to hear it from a real person.

-What is a job in the fashion industry that I could go into? other than designer.. I mean what is really out seems like no matter the major there are A LOT of just odd jobs out there. So I feel like as long as I have a degree I am set. SWEET!

What I think...

-I think that HALLOWEEN is so fun but dang why does it have to bring out so much..uhm.. for lack of a better word, hoochies?.. I know I know the older you get it turns into not so much the candy but the party but I mean really, put some clothes on. 
Now for our Halloween we went to the USC vs.OREGON game, man that was a fun time. LOVED IT.
The people around us were hilarious and the game was great. Oregon won of course. GREAT first college football game for me. Next time though I want to be the home team. This is a pic from my phone, thats why it is so bad..

-I went to this swap meet with Lisa (Andrews Mom) and it was the coolest..kinda dirtiest...thing. Man there were a lot of great finds and just fun stuff from shoes to clothes to tools to furniture to fabric to makeup to planters to kids toys. It was sweet to look at ALL of the FUN stuff. I had to get some things.. and even though I probably could have spent a lot more I held back. But I did get a MOUNTAIN of fabric, a bunch of elastic, a bunch of small fabric flowers, and the real WINNER was THREE pairs of sandals. All for the beautiful price of $20. Now that is Bargain Shopping.

- Andrew and I got are now Primary teachers :) hahaha yea we are beast. For those of you who don't know what that is, it is a class at church on Sundays. We teach the 10 year olds. We have only done it once and there was only three girls. They were HILARIOUS. oh to be ten again. We really have seven kids but four were gone so we will see how this week goes :)

- We are going to The Getty Museum tommorrw. I am excited, I love museums :)

- There is a kid that I went to school with way back when, who has cancer. I don't really know him and I don't think I have ever even talked to him but I am friends with him on Facebook..that always seems to happen. He sends out updates of what is going on with him and the cancer and sometimes I read them but sometimes I am just like oh whatever. However when I do read it and look at his facebook it continually amazes me. He has so many problems. It seems like he is always going to the ER or having some test done. Yet he is ALWAYS so postive. He is enjoying life to the fullest and not letting one thing get him down. It motivates me to suck it up and enjoy everything God has given me beause man do I have A LOT. I truly have nothing to complain about. It is wonderful how God sends you those reminders in ways you would never think of. This is my reminder to all of you!! Enjoy life. It is worth smiling about. I know there are things that will get you down but I also know there are people all over that love you and if you don't think that is true remember that God does love you and so do I!

We love you all. We would also love lots of comments.
Have a great weekend. Peace.
<3 Andrew & Alex Sorensen
