Irene, our friend of over 7 years, just married a fun boy we are SO happy for them! Irene looked so beautiful and her reception, sealing & luncheon were wonderful. Love you Irene & Brandon! 

Since Klint & Elaine couldn't make it Sebastian & I took the "photobooth" pic together!

Candy Update/Ode to Chocolate

It has been over 1 year now since I have eaten candy... but I started eating more chocolate to compensate BAD IDEA! Chocolate does not look as good on my body as candy does - apparently it's really fattening! ; )   But my sweet tooth needs to be fed!  So here is my ode to my favortite chocolates:

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - I just love these so

Snickers - my "desert island" candy bar they're like a meal
Turtles w/ pecans - last year I regrettably discovered these!

100 Grand -  caramel & chocolate were made for each other

Cadbury Mini Eggs - the worldly reason I like Easter

Charleston Chews - so unnatural but addicting

Kit Kats - go well with Reees's peanut butter cups

Milky Way - reminds me of trading Halloween candy as a kid

Peanut Butter M&M's - yum yum yum

Peanut M&M's - Mom, I grew up and realized how good these are!

Raspberry Sticks - I don't know why I like these they are weird!

Twix - I have to be in the right mood but then can devour these

Lindor Dark Chcolate - these are needed just once a month ; )

P.S. I am grateful for chocolate!

Yes, I really do have a hot husband!

At a work dinner last week where everyone (and their spouses) came from all of our 4 locations (so we don't see each other very often) each employee had to stand up and introduce ourselves, our spouse, and say how long we've worked with the company. Klint was at nursing school clinicals at the hospital and couldn't make it. So when it was my turn I got up and said ..."And my hot husband isn't here!" Later one of the owners came up to me and said that I've got about half the group confused thinking that I wasn't really married and it was a joke about having a hot husband! Ha! I didn't even think that when I said it! Well then later his wife came up and said "So do you really have a hot husband?" I said "Yes he's hot" And she says, "Oh, so you really are married?!" Ha ha ha! I want to send a mass email with a picture of Klint looking real ridiculous as a joke he he he!
I just laughed looking at this picture again!
Yeah Klint, you really are hot. What's great is that I loved you even before I thought you were there!

Aunt Karen's Wedding Day...Um I mean 1st Anniversary!!

Aunt Karen & Jerry were married on March 5th........ 2011!
I can't believe it's been a year already!  Happy Anniversary!
Look how cute & happy Karen looks!
Their wedding day was wonderful!  They were married and sealed at the Mt Timponogos Temple, and I was fortunate enough to be Karen's escort in the bridal room!  What a beautiful sealing performed by Jay Jensen, a General Authority who was also a classmate of theirs.  He said some really sweet things it was a beautiful sealing.  Then I made Brandon, my brother-in-law, take more pictures than Karen & Jerry even wanted while Klint filmed ; )

Then there was a nice luncheon & reception at "Le Chateau" in Provo.  It was so fun to see family and friends of Karen's whom I know.  At the luncheon we got to say a few words about Karen and it was so sweet to hear everyone's comments about both Karen & Jerry - both such amazing, kind, loving, wonderful people.  I am so happy for them!
They re-met at their 50 Year High School Reunion!
Cara's remarks were pretty funny she made Karen laugh so hard!
Yes, that's Klint filming Brandon as he is capturing
Cara's & my fabulous poses.... problem?

My Girls!  Me, Mom, Aunt Karen, Great Aunt Darlene, Sister Cara
And now that I'm writing this a year later I can say that Aunt Karen & Jerry are still so in love and so sweet!  It has been so nice getting to know Jerry.  Since we started working on Aunt Karen's house (she moved into Jerry's home) we are always in need of something and Jerry is always to willing to lend us a tool of his or his help.  He is such a great catch Auntique and vice versa for Jerry!  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!
