Hitting Golf Balls Off A Building

Brit, Drew, Mike and Me

Here in LA there is a driving range on top of a 6 story building downtown. It's really fun to go and hit golf balls off of. We've only been twice and we've been both times with our friends Drew and Brit and we hope to go back again soon! The second time we went, we thought to bring our camera along so that we could take some pictures of the fun we had!

Brit and Drew were both awesome! I wish I could say the same for me and Mike. I guess we just need a little more practice. :)

Here's to more practice!

New Year's Eve in Malibu

For New Year's Eve we were invited to stay the night with some friends who were house-sitting in Malibu. We went along with a few other couples and we had such a great time!

We enjoyed ourselves eating yummy secret-recipe burgers made by Josh, playing a fun Charades-One Word game, swimming in the pool, watching the Big Apple Ball drop at Midnight while drinking sparking cider, and even a 3am game of Risk. We had such a wonderful New Year's Eve and we even enjoyed some sunshine on the car ride back home.

We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends here in LA!!

The Girls won the Charades-One Word Game!! Woot Woot!!

The Flower Boys. Aren't they cute!?

Waiting for the ball to drop!

Christmas in Utah!

Annual Christmas photo at the Daynes' home

This past Christmas Michael and I were able to drive out to Utah with some of our friends here in LA since our parents both live in Provo. It was really nice to take the 11-hour drive and be able to sit back and relax the entire time (thanks Kael for driving) and we even made some great stops along the way at the outlet mall and a yummy Greek restaurant. Once we got to Utah we spent some really exciting days with both my family and Mike's. Our agenda included my family's annual Christmas Fondue Dinner, Christmas Eve at Michael's sister's home, some wonderful, but very sad visits with Michael father in the hospital, and breakfast at Joe's in Provo before we headed back home. Unfortunately, we didn't get many pictures, but we still have a wonderful Christmas Vacation, nonetheless.

My super-duper adorable niece, Emily.

Michael's Trip to Egypt

Last October Michael had the opportunity to take a trip to Cairo, Egypt with some of his classmates to research housing. Although he left me behind in LA to take a quick 6 day "vacation" without me, at least he took pictures galore! Be prepared for LOTS and LOTS of them!

I'm pretty jealous that Michael went on this amazing trip without me, but I can't wait for all the great trips we will be able to go on once he is finally finished with school in June. We have so much to look forward to!
