A GRAND Getaway!

Yesterday morning we got a call from my Dad, telling us they had an extra room at the Grand America Hotel in downtown, SLC! We were thrilled to take the room, we didn't want them stuck with an empty room...even though we were at working til close. We closed up the store as quickly as possible, rocking it, out by 10:25... our last customers didn't leave til almost 10:15.

We got to the Grand America around 11, and found this in our room....

YES... That is a piano made out of chocolate! You do not get much better than that, except for maybe our late night room service, chicken wings and french fries at a 5 star hotel, we are crazy.

Our room was beautiful! I was a much needed quick getaway!

We had room service again for breakfast, the orange juice was HEAVENLY! and mmmmmm waffles,fresh fruit and crepes! Plus this beautiful view of city hall with all the rain!

18th floor!

14 Days of Valentines Continues!!!!

Not going to lie, this has been so much fun, especially because we do not get to see each other all that often. Here are the rest of my days:

Day 4:

I worked day, he worked night, So I left this sitting on his sandwich bain at work for him to see when he got there. I love Arah!

Day 5:

Day 6:

Day 7:

Best Gift I have EVER given, When I got home this night.... I was attacked. Don't worry though, I am prepared for the battle.

Day 8:

Day 9:

Does anyone know how unbelievably hard it is to find red crush? I went to probably 6 or 7 different stores and never found it. Thanks to my amazing Mom who found some one day while shopping and bought all they had(a whopping 4 cases ha ha)She brought me a 6 pack one night while I was working. My mom is the best!

Day 10:

I haven't baked in so long! I love baking, especially for my man! I thought I was just so creative writing LOVE in sprinkles.

Day 11:

The funny thing about this one is... that it was actually really hard to narrow it down to just 10! even harder because i wanted the top 10, tough stuff, but I picked out some darn good ones.

Day 12:

This will be filled with fortune cookies, I just need to take the time to either find a way to make them, being oh so domestic and creative... or venture out into the great big world to Panda Express and buy some :)

Day 13:

Day 14:

So i haven't decided yet what I am going to put with this one yet.... I know it is only a few days a way, and I am kind of a slacker. Whatever it is, It will be amazing!

Valentines Day Extravaganza!

Anyone else find themselves addicted to pinterest? i am constantly looking at the amazing things that other people come up with and create and think to myself... I'm so glad that all these people are so creative that I don't have to be. I just have to put in the effort to copy their GRAND ideas. Valentines day at our house has turned into the 14 Days of Valentines, i have had so much fun putting it all together and hiding it for Arah to find!

Day 1:
This one was so much fun, I hadn't seen Arah all day, and I had to get it ready, but he was at home and I was at work, so I text him and told him that it was absolutely necessary that he go to the grocery store to get some cereal before I got home. so when he got home from the store I had it waiting for him on the doorstep.

Day 2:
I left for my student teaching hours before Arah woke up, so he woke up with this next to his alarm clock.

Day 3:
What better way to start off a Friday than with "Love Potion #9" perfect start to a date night ha ha

Arah and I decided that although we are SUPER awesome. We are kinda lame in that we don't really see any of our old friends very often. so we decided to have a party and invite some friends over for dinner and games. It turned out to be a lot of fun, I wish we could do it more often.

We had pulled pork sandwiches and everyone brought something to share. Delicious dinner. Then we played nertz, then epically we played Just Dance 3! Here are some pictures and videos of the fun.

Mawage is what bwings us togeta today!!!!

Me and Arah are getting married in 3 days! Yup just 3 days away, That's it! This long wait is finally coming to a close. It has been so much fun with the wedding planning and dress picking and engagement pictures and bridals and cake and food choosing. I've loved it all. But I must say I am ready to have a place to sleep everynight, not trying to find rides, and have an apartment where I can start to find all my misplaced things, most of all i'm excited to cuddle every single night! I Love Arah! September 15, 2011

Love Actually!

So a couple days ago I was searching through blogs and I found this one. It is so unbelievably cute.

I feel like as I get closer to getting married(three weeks from today! woot!) The thing that I hear most is how hard marriage is and how easy it is to forget how much you love each other.

So I have been on kind of a personal quest!

There is no doubt in my mind that there will be hard times, after all every fairy tale has its twists and bumpy roads. I also know I will have to put in a lot of hard work to make sure Arah knows how much I Love Him, even during those hard times. One of our goals together, is to go on a date together once a week, no matter how simple.

So back to the blog I found, It has a ton of really great date ideas and present ideas. Everything from ideas for St. Patricks day dates to a Date of the Month Club Date Ideas. I found a lot of fun ideas that I would love to use sometime. Just thought I would share with the world!

Ta- da! Time is just flying

So I know in my last post I said that I would be participating in the 21 day challenge. Much to even my own surprise i have actually been doing it. It has not been easy, but I have been getting ready every day. If you know me, this truly is such an accomplishment. and I have been taking the challenges head on, which means i have also been planning ahead on what i have been wearing. This has been super difficult since currently I am not really living in one place. But I am doing my very best,pictures just haven't been posted quite yet, and some of them not yet taken.

I have been moving all around and spending many night sleeping on the top bunk of my nephews bunk bed. (A huge thank you to my amazing sister for letting me sneak in at all hours of the night)

With school starting in a week, my current car situation and the wedding 3 weeks away. I have kinda been in limbo with a place to live and a way to get to needed places. It has been fun though. Arah has been so sweet he has been waking up most mornings by 5:30 am and driving me to work before he heads to work. I'm glad I have so many wonderful people who care about me and drag me around with them where I need to be. I love my Mom and Dad and all my wonderful family.

But the good news is..... invitations go out this week! Not gonna lie they look fantastic! Just got to get them stuffed and address! busy few days ahead!
