Sometimes my friends call me "Mrs." Johnny Carinos! Well, mostly because I just wanted to brag about my dinner I made tonight. I made the alfredo sauce from Olive Garden and then the pasta and good stuff, from Johnny Carinos Spicy Ramono Chicken. I put in artichoke hearts, grilled chicken, pinenuts, mushrooms, green onions and sundried tomatoes! into my homemade yummy Olive garden alfredo with bowtie pasta! It was yummy! I can't wait to have you all over and so we can enjoy it together. Now, I just need to know how to put together some of that yummy, olive oil + balsamic vinegar stuff that would taste good and we would be set! Any one know how to do that yummy?
WE are just recovering from the Christmas holidays. Boy did Santa really love us this year. Iguess we were extra good. We just got spoiled! It was so much fun being with the family. I will post some pics later, but we played games and ate yummy food and sang christmas carols! It was a great time! Kasen as always loved playing with his cousins. Everytime we go there he learns so much more from them! It's pretty interesting. Lately when he is wanting something, Oh I don't know, like wanting to climb onto the stove, we tell him "No" then he will look at us and then slowly but surely he will put his hands over his eyes and either sit down on the floor or find the couch to lean on and really sulk and cry! It makes me laugh but I try not to laugh out loud while he can hear me! He currently is trying to sit in the back of his dump truck and ride it around! ha ha...he is so funny to me!
I am really liking my job still, even though the traveling part is only going to get harder but its really going to be done before I know it!

Michelle is the BEST!

Okay, so just for the record I posted a few of these pics a few nights ago but my dads internet wasn't working and I want all you to know about this awesome girl named Michelle.
I want you to know how awesome you are. I wanted to thank you so much for being there for me. Thanks for being the BEST cousin and one of my BEST FRIENDS in all the world! I know that we don't get much time to hang out or do things together anymore but I know that when we do it's just like the old days and we have a blast together. I love the times we had when you would teach me dances and we would sing kareoke. When I went with you to the State Fair and listened to you sing that songe where you had to yodle:) I remember we had so much fun and ate so much then rode the rides we were so sick. Remember clogging, and volleyball and softball when we were young. I remember all the home videos, birthday parties and sleepovers! I love you so much Michelle and hope that you have a GREAT birthday! Your the best!

3 Years and Going strong

It really has been 3 years since I married Tate! I am so lucky! I could go on and on about how much I freaking love him and how happy he makes me but honestly is he ever going to read this? Probably not and I think that all of you know how awesome he is and how great we are together:) Am I right? So I just thought that since I haven't posted hardly any pics on here I would post some/tons of us! Dating, engaged and married! We have so much fun together and I am so lucky to be with him forever!
And most of the girls who were there through it all! Thanks guys! Boy I know that it was a rough one but it was worth it wasn't it;) Love you!!!

Merry Christmas Everyone

Okay, so I just feel so dumb because I don't have any recent fun pictures to post...and I blame it all on Tate. Mostly because he left our cord to our camera that hooks up to the computer...You know the one I am talking about...in Talmage! So, it's probably going to be there for a while. So, this will have to be yet another one of my long boring posts without any cute pictures to look at! We are having so much fun right now in our lives. We have finally moved and settled into our new place in Cedar and it feels like we never left. We got back into Sunset Ridge andhave the same layout as our old apartment...so everything is in the exact same place as when we left here..I know boring, but it's the only way that makes sense to us to arrange our furniture! Anyway, my little brother David is going to be living with us for the next semester and that is exciting and fun for us! And hopefully will save him a little bit of money! I am absoluetly loving my job right now. I pretty much just work with the guards and do all the organizing for the traveling and arranging shoot around and practice times. I got to go and speek at the Coaches luncheon that the Boosters put on and that was really fun and nerve racking. The president and AD and all these important people were there and I just jammered on about how awesome our girls were! I think that's what I did anyway, i was pretty nervous. But I am learning so much about basketball and all the operations of making a program run and it's been so fun! I do miss Kasen alot, but then I get feeling guilty a little bit about kind of liking being away and doing this. So, I am kind of torn between two good things I guess sometimes!! Tate will be able to finish his degree at the end of this semester and will graduate. That's seems hard to believe, but it's true. I will be doing 2 classes this semester independantly and hopefully will be able to finish by next Christmas. That is exciting! Kasen is honestly the most amazing little man in the whole world!! He makes the funniest little faces and is learning so much everyday! He knows where your ears are, your nose and eyes! And his new thing is to "pound it". HE loves giving the fist bump. And if he does it to Me, he has to find Tate and give him a Pound! He is so cute! He is learning how to make the fishy face and looks around the room when we are reading any book that has a fishy in it and makes sure that everyone is doing the fishy face till we can move on. He absolutely loves his Grandpa's and loves his Grandma's too. But he really loves his Grandpas! Its fun to watch him. He really just amazes me. I know that I am a mom that is proud but I could go on and on about him.
Tate and I will be coming up on our 3 year anniversary here in a few days. I am even still in love with him...can you believe it? He is honestly the best little Dad in the whole wide world. He amazes me! Okay, so this post is way too long to not have pictures so I will sign off. Merry Christmas!

Big Win

So I know that I haven't posted anything exciting for a while, but I couldn't let this one pass. I am just so excited. WE got a really big win tonight and it was intense. We beat Oakland by 1 point with "Tiny" making a shot with 3 second left. IT was so much fun! I just had to say how proud I am of our girls. They have worked really hard and come together this past week and I am so excited to be a part of this group of amazing people. Anyway, I am just really excited and can't believe how much basketball still is a part of me! I still get so excited and nervous and butterflies! And I can't even go in! MAN!
Anyway, it was a good win and fun game tonight!!! Hopefully we will see lots of these nights!
