Once in a blue moon Craig gets a break from med school. He only had a few days off for Christmas, so we raced to Cedar where we packed in as many winter activities as possible. I experienced my first Parson Christmas, complete with a crab feast, the singing of the Parson "anthem", and countless rounds of Scum. We explored lava caves, went sledding with the kiddos, and ice skated on Cedar's first ice rink. It was a very merry Christmas indeed.

I was raised on Disney. When I was little, I pretended I was a different Disney princess every day and wouldn't answer to anyone unless they referred to me by that particular princess's name. Craig was raised on Disneyland, and his family still makes the 10-hour trek there on a regular basis. 

So yes, we are Disney people.

We flew to Orlando for one week, and it was no question that we would go to Disney World. Just when I thought I couldn't love Disney any more, they decorated for Christmas. Oh my WOW. Perfect decorations, perfect music playing throughout the entire park, perfect lights covering every inch of buildings. It could not have been more magical.

While no one can compete with the magic of Disney, we are admittedly roller coaster junkies, so naturally we had to spend a day at the Universal Studios parks. We loved it... maybe a little too much because it exhausted us right out. We may or may not have taken a power nap on a park bench...

By the look on his face, I think you can tell we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. 


the happiest day

Yesterday was our one-month mark, so in honor of a successful and blissful first month of marriage, I'd like to share pictures of the day I put a ring on it.

It was my happiest day.

I've been dying to share these bridals ever since I've gotten them back.
I must admit that sometimes I assume that the world will be as excited about these pictures as me. 
Luckily for you, I refrained from posting the entire album and just chose a few (what constitutes "a few" anyway?) of my favorites.

And then I found out that I married a model. Wow. ^^^

They're perfect. We love you, Abbey Kyhl, for being such an astounding photographer!

When I moved to Arizona, Craig was my only friend. This wasn't a problem since I wanted to spend all of my time with him anyways. However, it was a little unfortunate when we got engaged and I didn't have any friends or family here to celebrate with. Sending pictures and recapping the story over the phone definitely wasn't as exciting as squealing and chatting with everyone in person.

Thank heavens I have the world's greatest friends.

A group of them drove down from Logan and Provo for my wedding, and the night before I got married, they threw me a "love can go the distance" bridal shower. It could not have been more perfect. It was SO fun to see everyone since I hadn't seen them in months, and definitely not since I had been engaged. I finally got to celebrate and giggle and show off my ring and squeal with the girls who were almost excited about my wedding as I was! It was adorable and definitely the perfect way to spend my last night as a single lady. A big thank you to all of my girlfriends for driving all the way down to make my wedding even more special.

 ^^ I'm so happy that the moment of dethroning Lisa from the left side was captured ^^

p.s. Brooke is the graphic designer slash photographer, and she rocks.
