Fondue Night

One of our favorite wedding presents has been our amazing fondue pot. When we first picked it out, we were a little skeptical as to whether we'd actually use it or not, but this weekend we had our second fondue night since getting married. Since our time in Rexburg is coming to an end, we decided to have one last rockin' night of fondue to say goodbye. Although we were too distracted by all the food to whip out the camera and take pics, we had a great time getting to hang out with all of our friends one last time before making our big move. A special thanks to Ansley & TJ for hosting the night at their place! (And thanks to everyone else for the thousands of calories I consumed while piggin' out on fondue!)

Winter Wonderland?

I know I've already complained about the snow this winter, but due to the large amount of snow we've received, I think I'm pretty justified in my complaints. As you can see in the pictures below, it's snowed pretty much every day this winter. And just when we think the worst is over, we jinx ourselves and another 2 feet of snow drops from the sky. We've learned that the biggest mistake we can make around here is to not drive our cars every day. Experience has taught us that if we don't move our cars every day, the snow begins to build up and our cars ends up looking like this: (By the way, these aren't our cars, luckily, our cars haven't gotten covered this bad)

And once a car gets to this point, it might as well be broken down for the rest of the winter. All I know is that whoever put the word "winter" and "wonderland" in the same sentence is absolutely out of there mind!

Bbq Wings

Ryan was raised in a home where the Superbowl was a pretty big deal. (I, on the other hand, am a bigger fan of the food than the actual game.) Growing up, one of the main highlights of the game was his moms amazing bbq wings. In order to carry on the tradition, Ryan had his mom teach him how to make the wings over Christmas break. Being the little chef that he is, Ryan spent all Saturday afternoon basting away. On Sunday we went over to a friend's house for the big game and the wings were a hit. Although I probably ate half of them myself, I think it's pretty safe to say that he's going to be cooking them a lot more often from here on out.

Freezing Cold

After living in the cold for the last four years, I consider myself to be pretty well adjusted to cold weather. That is, until this last week. This week I experienced the coldest days of my life! After 4 days of temperatures ranging from -20 to -30 degrees, I have officially had my fill of winters outside of Arizona. The week was full of excitement as we began each day with a 20 minute collaborative effort of jump-starting my car due to the cold. Once we both got our cars running and out of the snow-filled parking lot, we had to deal with the pain of parking and walking to our classes in the unbearable cold. After one day of not wearing gloves, I'm pretty sure I developed a mild case of frostbite. The good news is that today warmed up to a balmy 16 degrees. After this last week of pure winter bliss, I think it's pretty safe to say that we're ready for an Arizona winter!

Guitar Hero Masters

One of my pet peeves if when people ask me the question, "What are your hobbies?" As if it already isn't sad enough that I don't have any interesting talents or hobbies, this questions forces me to publicly state that I am talentless, or at least I was. For Christmas, Ryan's parents gave us Guitar Hero III for Nintendo Wii. Although we may not be good at the actual guitar, we have both have found a special interest in this remarkable game. Yep, that's right, we are guilty of spending many late nights playing this game. Besides the fact that we feel really cool getting to play our very own guitar (customized with Guitar Hero stickers), we've actually turned out to be pretty good at. So from here on out, if anyone asks me what my hobbies are, I'm going to be forced to tell them that I am a Guitar Hero Master!
