Snowshoeing Adventure!

Last Monday was a holiday so we decided to go snowshoeing!! We went this same weekend last year and figured it was a great tradition to continue (well, until we move to Texas where there's no snow...). We started at Sundance but when they told us we weren't allowed to go on the ski resort we left and went up above Vivian park instead.

All ready to go!
Grant lookin goodGrant was being good so he got a kiss...But then he dumped snow on my head and got a glare instead :)We decided to take two different ways to cross the stream for the 4th time or something. I obviously picked the wrong way...

Valentine's Day

We had an awesome Valentine's Day! We were especially happy that it was on a Saturday so that we could spend the whole day together. I got breakfast in bed-- pink pancakes and pink eggs cut into heart shapes with bacon! Then we made a fort in the living room! We had take-out Chinese food in the fort as well as playing some Zelda and watching Horton Hears a Who. Then that night we went to Barnes and Noble and picked out a book we want to read together. We decided on Yes Man, the book that the movie is based on. We haven't seen the movie but the book is really good so far and we figure we'll go check out the movie once we're finished. It was a great and fun Valentine's Day!!

Today was a grand day in the Tanner household. For the first time, I cut Grant's hair REALLY well. I've done a decent job before, but this time was GOOD. I'm excited to become a GREAT haircutter... someday :)
Wahoo! Grant's hair doesn't look like this!

Good Times with the Tanners

We've been up to quite a lot lately, but we have also been too lazy to charge our cameras... so just recently we started taking pictures again. So here is a numbered update of the Tanner family.

1. We're excited for Valentine's day! We're decked out with decorations and candy (if I don't eat it all soon..). We've also started planning the ward Sweethearts dance which will be sweet! It's a great season to remember those we love and find ways to serve them. We have been trying to do that.A Valentine cake I made thanks to Mama Beth

Our window decorations and the snowy quad.

2. We went up to Park City and watched the World Championship Aerial Ski Jump Contest. I'm pretty sure I said that wrong... but you get the idea. It was SO cool! The announcer said the hardest tricks performed that night were the full double double double and the double full double double.... what?! Well, it was super cool, I think that's what he meant.
That bug looking thing above the jump is a skier! It was sweet

3. We went to Evolutions of Dance, a show at the Covey Center that some of my friends were performing in. It was a great show. I'm glad Grant will go to dance shows with me because I love them and would go ALL the time if I could. He's good at putting up with me :)
Tawny danced in the Evolutions show-- she is amazing!!

4. Grant is working full time now and it's definitely a change for both of us. We were used to seeing each other a lot more so we're getting used to a new schedule.

5. I've been attempting to cook a bit more-- I made potato soup and chicken and dumplings for the first time last week. I also made some easy chicken pot pie that was pretty good. Today I made my mama's chili and spiced it up with some extra ingredients. I'm certainly not a great cook/chef/baker/whatever yet, but I have fun learning!

6. We've been apartment searching! One of my good friends from high school, Caitlin, is living in Dallas for a bit so she's helping us find a good place! We found an apartment we like but they don't have openings right now. We're gonna call back around the time people will put in their 60 day notices.

7. We've almost been married for 6 months and we are happier than ever!

3 Jobs in Three Weeks!

The month of January was a kahrazy month. After graduation, I had a paid full-time internship all planned out at a place called Cost Segregation Authority. After working there for two days, my boss said they had only budgeted 8 hours a week for the intern: ahhh, WHAT? So I was out on the job hunt again. I then found a job at Funding Universe helping entrepreneurs get financing. After working there for four days, they told me that my department was being relocated to South Jordan: ahhh, STINK! So now, starting tomorrow, I will be driving all the way up to almost-Salt-Lake-City everyday. And the job position will change a lot. So yeah, the job market it pretty thin right now. Other than that, Kelsey and I have enjoyed skiing Snowbird every weekend. We're excited that Dad will be out here this weekend.
