just can't wait to get on the road

I am sick. again. ahhh
And its the day before we go to Utah. 
Can I just snap my fingers and be done with it all? 
On the bright side we get to see Marilee and my parents this weekend. 
Maybe that will help me get better.

The X games started today. They are pretty awesome. 
We enjoy watching them a lot. 
This is a short one. I can't focus long enough. 
How do you get a dog to stop bitting and nipping?
ugh. Show us some love.

This isn't the NBA this is REXBURG!

We are a family in LOVE with sports so it wouldn't be right if we didn't play a little too. 
Last night was Andrew's first game with his new team.
It was the first time they met, spoke in person, played together.. ha
Lets say it is hard to go from watching NBA to watching college to watching not so much college..

The teams and MY man number 20 

Okay tall kid with the mustache
bahahaha sure did entertain me

PLAY ball

Take him DOWN!!!!

Me. hanging out watching. by myself. hm

I have no idea where Andrew is in this.

Run Run Run 

Man down

butty butty butty

I am not watching REAL college basketball, I am not watching REAL college basketball, 
I am not watching real college basketball. 

It's up and.. 

So that was our night. Oh what fun.
Some people need to learn they weren't chosen to go to the NBA so there for they should NOT play like they are in the NBA. ohh my.
Whats your favorite sport to watch? I LOVE watching college basketball. 
Well Dog went to the bathroom outside today. I literally jumped up and down. 
He is fascinated with the snow. Its adorable when he slips on the ice. 
Playing in Salt Lake this weekend. YAY I get to see my parents. YAYYYY 
I am so bored sitting at home. Blah and my throat is hurting again :( 
I think I am going to try and finish my apron today. 
What should I make for dinner? hum dee dum daaa
I feel like I keep changing what I want to do with my life. Well not changing, nothing has changed I just think of other things to do and what else I could do. I want to do EVERYTHING. 
What do you like to do when you are bored? Reading, Crafts, Sleeping, watching TV..
I hate watching so much tv but then again I LOVE it. uhhh I feel like I am being so lazy, which I am. 
Guilty Pleasures of the Month = Teen Mom, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Next Great Baker, Say yes to the dress, ANYTHING Kardashian, anything weight loss... yea we watch too much
But I LOVE the Kardashians, why I have no idea. They just really entertain me.
What is your guilty pleasure?

Now you MUST go watch Andrew's sports show on youtube. He is awesome. Talks anything and everything sports. Watch, comment, like. Fabulous 

Well thank you for the comments and love. 
We love you guys. 
Love, Alex & Andrew

Welcome to the Family.

Announcement, Announcement, Announcement We have an Announcement!!! 

What do you think it is?  
Don't let your mind wander that far. 
NO Worries we are not preggers BUT we do have an addition to our little family :)

Introducing our little bundle of joy, Oakley 

A little Lion King maybe?

Kisses for Sydney

Hiding from us

His favorite spot to run to. 

Can't wait until he can't fit under there.

awh presh

Yup he fits under it.

Kisses for mom :) 

he fits under a rag. ha

He climbed up there and sat all by himself. 

How cute are they?

Focusing on a masterpiece 

Oh what a cutie. 
He made brownie/chocolate chip cookie bars. 
wow were they amazing! 

And then there were three.. kinda. ha I guess Oakley is our kid for now.. well for a long while. 
He is an English Pointer mixed with springer spaniel. and is two months old. aw presh
It is going to be VERY hard to potty train him and make sure he doesn't nip/bite. he likes doing that. 
So it will be an intense next couple of months while he is in training. 
Any advice? 
Lovvvve, Alex & Andrew

It's a Miracle!

No you do not need to get your eyes checked, I really am blogging two days in a row. 
I told you all I would try and this is me trying. 
It's a good night to share my thoughts with you all,
I want to have a whole day where I lay on the couch, never turn on the lights or open the window, have TONS of junk food, mainly the beautiful thing called CANDY, and watch movie after movie after movie. Yes my life is lazy. No I didn't finish my apron today :(
oh well. as a good procrastinator always says, There is always tomorrow!
I stabbed my finger on the beginning of the apron and of course it is my pointer finger which seems to be used way too much now that it is painful to touch it. hate when that happens. 
Oh yea I died my hair. yup the whole lot of it. and trimmed it, so maybe it will grow faster but as of right now it only feels really really short. ugh
Did you all know that my husband is way too cute? 
I love the way he gets SO excited and folds his arms and rubs his hands together and scrunches his face, yes all at the same time. SUCH an adorable little habit he has. 
He also made dinner tonight :) 
I was being pretty lazy, just chillaxing on the couch, and he got up and started making it. Granted he was probably really hungary cause it had been a while since I had fed him but it was very sweet of him and to top it all off he did all of the dishes. awh LOVE him. 
How WONDERFUL does that look. Tasted even better. 

Now still speaking of the wonderful Mr. Sorensen, He has another youtube channel. 
It is all SPORTS. 
Pretty much his expertise. 
Go watch it. He will be talking about everything sports. watch. enjoy.comment
share the insanity :)

How are you liking my hair so far?
I feel like these pictures make it look really yellow. uhhh
Don't judge me.. ha its cute I promise.

Tomorrow is my big sister Justina's Birthday. 
She will be 25
WOAH where have the years gone?

I want to make our apartment cute and creative. 
I love looking at others blogs, stalking them, and seeing the CUTEST crafts and ideas. 
I am jealous. 

I can't wait to HA Jokes I can wait I promise. I just play with Taeden and its all good. 
Some days I want a nice camera and other days I am like nah I don't need one yet. 
I NEED one right now. I am SICK of just using my iphone.
I have also decided I need the starter version of Adobe photoshop. Ha
I have great needs right?

 Well here is to blogging two days in a row YAY. Go me. 
Birthday party pictures next? Hm we will see how far I go with this.

Drum Roll Please!!!!



I know that this is the moment we have all be waiting for. So I threw it all together and here ya go :)

You probably won't get the full effect but that is what visiting is for so visit us NOW! We have an extra room :) no bed...but a WHOLE, junk filled, room. perfection. 
So as we tour the apartment please keep your arms and legs in your seat at all time and your computer online, we don't want you to miss a thing. 
Now as we beginning we walk in the front door, we live on the first floor which I am LOVING so far, you walk in to see our living room and this is the wall you see. I love the art work we have so I had to show it off.

This is our living room. Just a typical night of hanging out on the couch for us, watching tv. The pictures above are on the wall to the left of Andrew and the front door is on the right. 

To our left, when you walk in the front door we have the start of the kitchen/ dinning room?
We have this lovely shelf sitting in there. Yes it is a work in progress on the decorating.. but so far so good. Oh and our FISH. yes we got a first pet :) His name is Elias and he is a beautiful turquoise. 

Then turn to your left of this you have our table and another wonderful piece of Art that we LOVE. 

Another left and you have the kitchen, small but wonderful for us. I think it is just the right size for us. 

Now if you go down the hall we have the bathroom. It is HUGE and I LOVE it. It also has the washer in dryer in there but once you have seen one I think you have seen them all. 

Here we have one of the few decorations/ special things in the extra room. 
Aren't they adorable?  :)

My workshop :) It is still in the works but I am loving this room, the art/craft/SEWING table. 
YAY for extra rooms. I feel weird in a nerdy way for being so excited about the sewing machine. ha 

Now that is pretty much it for the tour. Sorry no bedroom. Maybe if you VISIT I will let you see :) 
But here is my first sewing project! yayyyyyy 
It is an Apron, still in the works but I hope to finish tomorrow. I think it is going to turn out SO CUTE!
I have decided I am turning into a wonderful "homemaker" as funny as that sounds. But Andrew goes to school and I work on what I LOVE. Sewing, fashion, whatever I want. I do clean quite often but thats cause I am so obsessed with it.. yes I am turning into my mother. thats okay with me though :)

Another reason I am turning into a SWEET homemaker is because I am really learning to COOK. Yes that is right Alexandria is Cooking. Real meals too. However we have gotten some great laughs and giggles out of what happens when I cook. Oh the stories we will be able to tell. 
Lets just say Sunday I want to make dinner, my favorite dinner ever, Eggplant parmigiana YUM YUM YUM, and what happens??? the FIRE ALARM goes off. And not only did it set off our apartment but it set off the WHOLE BUILDING. AHH 
So everyone in the building is standing outside in coats, blankets, with their dogs, while it is sleeting, and I am hiding in the corner hoping no one really thinks it was me..
No it was not burning, I just have the fry the eggplant and I didn't realize how smoky it was getting and ughhh yea it was SO SO SO embarrassing :( 
Now if you were wondering Andrew did get a little video of it oh how nice of him I know. ha 
Well Just Click below to watch, I am sure you will enjoy it. 

However the only thing I have really burnt since we have gotten married is toast and everyone does that right? Ha 
Tonight for dinner I made Sweet and Sour Chicken with rice and corn. Yummy 
And then I decided not to exercise and make cookies instead. GREAT idea. 
We ran out of oil so for I did the whole applesauce substitute, not too bad but not the same as my really fattening cookies. Here is the finished product. 

We have been spending a lot of time hanging out with Justina, Curtis and Taeden and I know how much people, aka my mom, loves seeing pictures of him so here are some more. He is SUCH a cutie. 
I think when Andrew and I start having kids I will be obsessed with taking pictures and blogging about them.. oh man watch out. I really will be a homemaker then. ha
Maybe I should look up the definition of that word to really know what it means.. hm
Well here he is...

He was having a good time hanging onto this table and banging on it. 

I am really going to start doing shorter hopefully daily blogs...ugh I can't promise anything but I really want to try. But then again I said I wanted to exercise everyday and well that is still in the works although I am getting there. 
Goodnight and Goodbye all. 
Love Life and don't take it for granted. 
Aimer, Andrew & Alex
