I was lucky enough to spend a couple days at home a few weeks ago! It was so much fun. I saw some great friends, went to my old home ward and spent a lot of time with family. On Sunday it was Kacy's birthday so we had a family dinner at our house. The kids were so cute! Here are some pics of the fun day!

Living in Texas has given us the opportunity to to live right next door to some really good friends of ours from Virginia, Greg and Alyssa. Brandon actually ended up going to SVU because of Greg so we owe him a lot because otherwise Brandon and I would never have met. Well...Greg, being the romantic that he is, bought Alyssa a Fat Head of Derek Jeter for Valentines Day. For those of you who don't know what a Fat Head is, it is a full size life-like picture that you put on the wall. Well, Alyssa hadn't put it up yet so we decided to put it up last night right behind the dinner table, it was a lot of fun and when the guys got home they loved it!

Brandon has been working so hard since we have been here in Texas. I am so proud of him! He is selling security systems and he is really enjoying being able to use his Spanish! He goes door to door for 8 hours a day and when he gets home at night he is exhausted! He has never done anything like this but he is doing great!!!
One of Brandon's fondest memories is of him and Grandpa Green ice fishing. When we moved to Utah is was something Brandon wanted to do with me. So the day came when we put on our snow boots and went out to the lake. I was so scared to step out onto the ice but Brandon kept telling me that it was fine. And it was....until I fell through and got stuck with freezing cold water pouring into my pants! Brandon felt really bad so he went back to the car to get different shoes and warm socks for me. We eventually made it out to the middle of the lake and were ready to catch some fish until we realized that we forgot the bait!! Brandon luckly had some WD40 that we sprayed on the hooks but after about 15 min. of watching the pole we decided that our fishing adventure had come to an end and it was time to go home!! Yeah, it was a pretty successful day!

For our honeymoon we went on a week long cruise to Mexico. We had a blast! Our first stop was in Puerto Vallarta. We took a boat to a little island called Las Caletas. While we were there we got to hold a monkey and a parrot. We went snorkeling and kayaking and we rested in hammocks! The next stop we made was in Mazatlan. We took a tour of the city and we saw a cliff jumper. The last stop we made was Cabo San Lucas and it was our favorite part of the cruise. We took a boat tour and saw the arch, some whales and we also did a lot of snorkeling. Overall it was the an amazing week and we hope we get to go on another cruise someday!

Brandon and I have wanted to make a blog for a while and now we are finally doing it! It might take a while for us to really get into it but I guess we will see. For those of you who don't know us very well, Brandon and I were married this last December in Los Angeles and a couple of weeks later we moved to Utah. I started my junior year at BYU and Brandon worked for Feature Films for Families. He was accepted into BYU for this Fall so we decided to take the Spring and Summer off and work. We are now living in Mission Texas (a mile away from the Mexican border) and we are loving it! The only bad thing is that we miss our families and we don't get a lot of time off! So I guess that's it for now... Jocelyn and Karrie, I hope you guys are proud of me for finally doing this!
