Amanda's Baby Shower

I was a hostess for a baby shower for Amanda Davis this past Sunday at our church. This was my first baby shower to host and it was a lot of fun! The gifts are definitely more exciting than the ones at a bridal shower! Unfortunately, I was one of the ones nominated to cut and serve the cake. Hannah (Shirey) Burton and I were the lucky ones to handle that task, which turned out to be not so bad.

The first pic shows her adorable cake. Nancy Eberhart, who did our wedding cake and Zach's groom cakes, baked and decorated the cake and it turned out beautifully! The second picture shows us hostesses gathered around while Sherri gives us a lesson in the fine art of cake cutting.

We all joked about how the shower and all the cute, girly gifts gives us "baby fever." Then, I quickly snapped back into reality and thought about how much Zach and I enjoy our freedom (and sleep!) right now! :)

Valentine's Day

On Friday while I was at work, Zach sent me a beautiful bouquet of a dozen roses with a few white lillies and other greenery. I was completely surprised! We had decided a few weeks ago that we wouldn't get each other anything, but would just go out for a nice dinner. Little did I know he had this planned! Aside from our wedding flowers, they are the most gorgeous arrangement! They still look great and we're enjoying the smell of them all throughout the house. In return, I cooked dinner for him that night- his request was fried shrimp and homemade seasoned fries. It turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself! We still went out for dinner to Canyon Grill on Saturday night and enjoyed great food. We had a wonderful "first" Valentine's Day!

Update...Over a Month Overdue!

Life has been busy for us lately. Work, for both of us, has picked up- which is such a blessing these days!! We haven't had much time for anything but work, cleaning the house/laundry, rec center and sleep. Since it's been over a month since my last post, I thought I would post a quick update on what all has been going on in our interesting married life!

We have faithfully started back to the rec center and are both loving it! We had stopped going a few months before the wedding because planning took up all of our time. Since we're going to Disney next month, we decided we should be in shape or we'll be exhausted after the first day! Zach has also started developing an island in our backyard and has already planted bulbs to bloom in the spring. He loves yard work and I can't wait to see how beautifully it turns out. We really needed something to brighten up our dirt and moss-covered backyard, better known as Cosmo's playground.

Church has been great also! We love getting more and more involved with all the things that are happening there. Choir is wonderful, and I am excited about getting to sing in a small ensemble in a few weeks.

I am excited about being Jennifer's Matron of Honor in May! I am hoping to help her with her planning and decorations, which will be so fun! It's fun to help plan without the stress of it being your own wedding! I already have my dress and (shocker!) I have to have it taken up a bit. I'll be helping host two of her showers also. I love weddings!!

After 5 months, I have FINALLY printed out our honeymoon pictures and took the time to organize them and place them in an album. We looked through the album last night and it just made us sad. We want to go back NOW! I don't think we even realized how incredibly beautiful St. Thomas was while we were there! I'm so glad we'll have the pictures from now on to remember it by and enjoy!
