New House

Well for those who didn't know Ryan and I bought a house a few weeks ago.  It is located in lovely Spanish Fork, about 1o minutes south of Provo.  After painting every room and spending days moving and unpacking.  We are finally all moved in and settled and can take pictures of everything.  

Our house is 1800 Sq feet, 3 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, 2 car garage, patio, office, shed.. and lots of other fun stuff!  

This is our dining area... we are still debating whether or not to raise that light cause when the leaf is in the table and its pulled out it's a "in yo face" light... we shall see. 

Family ROom... it's nice and cozy except the fact that our dimmer lights "hum" kinda annoying. 
My great kitchen.  I LOVE working on that island.. its so nice!  Plus I now have a big fridge and a HUGE pantry! 
Our bedroom.. as you can tell we used a lot of Red in our house as accents... I guess I am in a red phase. 
OUr beautiful backyard.  We have lots of grass, a great space for a garden next year, and a huge patio! 
Our office.. I think our desk looks find there even though we had to block a window.  THere was a bush behind it anyway that was blocking light so oh well. 
THe guest room... for all those guests coming to our house, this will be where you sleep! 

THe front of the house.  Isn't it cute!? 

My huge closet!  It is already full... I don't know how we fit all of our stuff in our old closet! 
i love my bathroom!  It has a nice jetted tub! 
Upstairs bathroom... I don't think I have even used this  one yet... 

Downstairs/guest bathroom.. I have used this one.  I didn't like the blue at first but it's growing on me. 

WEll that is our house!  Anyone is welcome to stay if you are ever in UTah.. we have PLENTY of room and love to have company!

Wasatch Back

A group of 12 of our friends decided to run a relay race called the Wasatch Back.  It is a race starting in Logan Utah and ending in Park City, Utah... about 188 miles. Each team member ran 3 legs of the race, each with varying difficulty.  I luckily had a pretty easy course while Ryan had one of the more difficult ones.   WE ARE CRAZY!  Our team started off at 7:20 AM on Friday and we finished around 1:00 PM on Saturday.  We finished just under 30 hours which was our goal.  The rain held off for most of the race but for our last 2 runners, Cat and Blake it down poured.  When we all crossed the finish line it was raining like crazy! We were just thankful to be done.... on our way out of Heber we were watching more runners with probably about 30 miles left... I was VERY happy to be done at that point!  

Ryan running his hard leg up the mountain.. and happy as a clam! 
The girls in our Van (We had 2 SUV's when we ran they would be resting and vice versa, so we didn't get to see them much)... Jessica, Bethany and Cat
Before we started running... look at how happy we look... Little did we know what was coming up ahead! 

The Mesmerizers!  This was our van... Jessica, Bethany, Ryan, Cat, Blake and Greg!  We had a blast hanging out together and still got along even after 1.5 hours of sleep!
