Some Pitchas!!

 Our friends Bonnie & Mike got married! Oh happy day!
 It was a beautiful wedding ceremony & reception in downtown Provo!  They were the perfect bride & groom! We love these two!

Mike & Wes are on the same fire squad.  I have loved getting to know Bonnie, too!
We're so blessed with such awesome friends!
 Spencie's mission call opening. Don't worry we had all who cared to watch spying through that laptop right there. The brain, Spencie, knows of a way to make a 1-way skype type thing so that people can go to a web address & watch. It was pretty cool, lots of people got to tune in through that!
 Mr. Jacob himself
 Miss Alia & Jacqueline!
 Colin & Spencie ready to open their calls! 
Colin is from TN, also, him & Spence are good buds.
 drum roll...
 ze crowd
 Cali Colombia, the country.
 Deej, Spencie, Me & Wes
 So excited! Spencie's giong to the Mexico Torreon mission (it has an accent somewhere in the word, but I don't know how to type those)

 Both thrilled.
They both weighed their calls in the envelopes on a meat scale. They weighed the EXACT same. So they knew they were either both going stateside or both going foreign.

I think Spence was relieved when Colin opened his up & it was foreign. Happy boys. Spencer was dreading an Idaho mission call!

Now onto Valentine's day!
 Curled toes=so excited
 So Wes got spoiled as far as gifts go. I have a running list of fun little gifts for him that I think he'd like or what he needs. So he got 2 bike accessories. A lock & a little flashing light that hooks onto the back for dark bike riding.
 He got a license plate cover. He's so excited!
This can be purchased at the Flag Shop in downtown Provo.
 I got Wes this:
Except I got it for $11 on Amazon. He loves it.
I got THIS for my birthday last year from Deej.
I love it. I surprised Weston w/ the Q&A a day, it is more manly looking & very awesome. He LOVES it.
 & then his favorite show.
 About to go on our Valentine's date!
 We went to Outback.  It's our new tradition.
 We had so much fun!
 Self Timer. Booyah!
 I start to puff up my cheeks. Wes goes in for a smooch.
We're coordinated.
 Interrigation lamp.
 Nom. Me <3 limes.
 You know those sexy lip & straw pictures? This isn't one of those. Wes was trying to document the bubbles. Didn't happen. & neither did the sexy lips. I'll work on that.
 Me love food.
Me love big burger.

Crazy eyes. 
He is so cute.

Life is good!
btw. want to see our future home? 
We are excited.
There is a little pond right there to the side & then in the backyard of the house there is an enormous pond, that you can't see right there. It's on the right side of the picture. But it's the flat line next to the house. The two windows on the corner of the basement facing us are our bedroom windows. Our other windows have window wells & let in a lot of great lights.  There are fields are all to the left. from this camera angle Salem Hills High School is directly behind Wes.  We love it. & today just solidified our decision to get out of Provo. It's going to be a bigger commute.  But moving out of the nasty Provo congestion is so worth it to me. I'm so happy!  We spent all day today at our new house today. I was so happy.
We got a couch from KSL this week. $15. So worth the investment. We're so happy.  I'll post more pictures of it later! I also made some house decor down there while Wes was napping today. I'm not sure if it's successful yet, it takes 24 hrs to dry, so I'll let you know how that one goes!
Anyways, we're doing well & having fun.  Love you all & hope life is treating you well.

BTW did you see the sweet post my husband wrote me on Valentine's Day. He's amazing. The greatest husband.  I have so much fun with that man. I love him.

So, Wes engraved my ring on Valentine's Day. It's amazing. It was finished on Thursday, it took them longer than expected.  It's so shiny. I didn't realize my ring was so dirty, till he put it back on my finger. Poor boy tried to surprise me, but that ring is NEVER off my finger. I literally mean never. Except for my soccer games.

We're playing intramurals again this semester. We're on Spencie's team. It is so fun. I have so many bruises!
