New addition to our family!

As I write this, our new puppy Izzy sleeps on my husbands shoulder, content in her new home.

The play by play so far? One licked, then abandoned puppy treat. One pee pee + one poop accident (no concept of potty training in the breeders home. Could be trouble ahead.)

One entirely happy Brian and Rachel, after a night of restless sleep :).

we got new couches!

So we decided we needed to get rid of our couches and buy a sectional. We love our new sectional because it has a great big ottoman in the middle so that everyone can put there feet up. So here are a few pics

This year i decided not to dress up for halloween at work. I just couldnt find anything I wanted to be. But i still thought i would put up some of the pics i took from work.

this is my Boss Tammy

this is Monica

this is Hiedi

This is only a few of them. But of course these are some of my favs.

So we really didnt do much when it came down to Halloween night we just stayed home and ate sushi. It was fun just hanging out with my hubby but it w0uld have been nice if we would have gotten some trick or treaters. Maybe one day when we move into a house we will get some and i can really decorate the outside of my house :) This year i was only able to put a couple things up. The little blocks that say boo on them are from my sister and the pumpkins are from party lite candels.

Governor's Gala

Last night we attended the governor's gala which is a fundraiser the gov puts on every year to raise money for his election in the coming year. Since bri just got hired on with the campaign we were able to go. It was such a great night It was fun to get all dressed up and get my hair and make up done. Brian also looked really nice in his tux. The best part of the night was watching the preformers who did little parts of some different musicals. The one we liked the most was The Wiz part.

here are a few more pics from the night.

this is my neighbor katie and me

Maxwell Family Vacation

This past weekend Bri and I headed up to Midway for a family vacation with his family. It all started on friday night with the guys going and playing some golf and then girls headed to the Park City outlet mall. I had such a fun time hanging with my mother in law and sisters in law. I really don't get to do that very often and it was way fun! Then after we were done with the outlets we headed into Heber and had dinner at the dairy keen. Then we headed back to the homestead where me and bri just crashed from such a long day!

The next morning we headed back into town for breakfast with the fam. Then we kinda had whatever time until we were ready to check out of our rooms. Brian's mother thought of a really cool game we could play where we would rotate from station to station and earn point. Like we played air hockey and foosball and pool and then the person who got the most point out of the rotations won. Emily (brians sister) won! It was a really fun activity. It was nice to just get away and be with the ones you love. Here are a few pics from the trip :)

Happy 4th of July

The one thing I love about the 4th of July is the fireworks!

I always look forward to the 4th because it is kinda the middle point of the summer. This year really hasn't been too hot which has been great. But that does not mean that it won't get hotter. I am not a big fan of hot weather even though I did live in Houston for 15 years maybe that is why I don't like hot weather anymore :) So now to the 4th of july. We ended up going to Brian's parents house for breakfast and it was so yummy! Then that night went went to his Aunt Nancys house for dinner and fireworks. It is always fun to see Brian's cousins. They have the cutest kids so I of course had to take pictures! Here are a couple of them :)

Here is Macy isn't she so cute!

Here is Cohan

Here is Andi and Brooklyn

And then here are some more pics I took too :)

Here is Liz and Eric

and here is Karen and Cory

We really did have such a great time with the family. To bad it had to end. Well I hope everyone else had a wonderful 4th!

Vegas Vacation

So this past week we went to Vegas for vacation. It was my first time there and it was so much fun! We left Monday morning around 11 30 and we got to Vegas around 5 30. Brian drove the whole time. He is such a great hubby to do that. I am not a big fan of driving long distance. So we stayed at the MGM Grand. We got a really good deal. We had the buffet included in our room price. So basically we spent 93 dollars a night and got food for free! It was a pretty sweet deal. So i have some picture but right now I am too lazy to put them up. So I will post more later :)

I am 28

On Tuesday I turned 28 I was not too excited to be 28 since i seriously thought I would have had a baby by now. But i know things happen for a reason and one day I know I will be a mom. It was a great day my hubby came home with 2 dozen chocolate covered strawberries from Cummings chocolate. They were the best! Then we went to Red robin for dinner and i got my free burger and a free sundae. It was a pretty fun day! The next day i got some really pretty flowers from my mom she is so sweet to send me my favorite flower!
