Our First Blog!

Nick and I decided it was finally time for us to join the world of blogging!  We have friends and family who we don't get to see or talk to every day, and we thought this would be a great way to update the people we love about our lives!  
We celebrated our very first Christmas as husband and wife, and I must say it was my favorite Christmas yet!  It was so much fun to celebrate with both of our families and to also have our own Christmas morning just Nick and I.  It was truly special, and one I will never forget! 
We also had some family and a few friends over for New Years Eve and New Years Day!  We live so close to the Rose Parade it was literally walking distance from our apartment!  We had so much fun with everyone that we are already talking about ideas for camping out for the Rose Parade next year!
Nick celebrated his 24th birthday a few days ago!  We had a fun time celebrating.  On his birthday he got breakfast in bed!  That afternoon we went with our cousins Kurt and Kellie to the amazing hut on Azusa Avenue/Sierra Madre called Best Teriyaki.  Check it out if you are ever in Azusa...amazing and cheap!  We then went to see "I am Legend"  
The boys loved it...and the girls...well we didn't:)  That night I cooked Nick a special dinner and we had ice cream sundaes for dessert!

The whole family came out the next evening and met us at Acapulco's!!  After dinner we fit 21 people into our tiny apartment for cake and ice cream!  Nick rec
eived many best buy gift cards for his birthday since he is trying to save for an Xbox 360! 

We are trying to get ready to transition into Nick going back to work, but we are loving this vacation mode that we are one!!  Club has been keeping us busy as well, and my team has their first tournament this next weekend!  Yikes!  Other than that we are really wanting to get plugged into our church.  The pastor today asked for help with the technology during the services and after church Nick put our names on a sign up list.  Getting plugged into a new church and calling it home has been one of the hardest things for both of us.  We strongly desire it, but it has been tough.  
Last but not least we celebrate 6 months of marriage tomorrow on the 7th!  God is so good, and has blessed us so much!  Marriage has already been teaching us and growing us so much, we are excited to continue on this new journey together!
