mmm mmm mmm.

after a failed attempt at stuffing our faces with red iguana again (too hungry to wait an hour for a table), we ended up at stoneground tonight. GREAT dinner. i highly recommend the chipotle shrimp with polenta and yummy goodness. and then there was dessert which blew our minds. hot cinnamon & sugar donuts with ice cream. that's right. it happened.

red iguana.

jared and i went to red iguana last night. and basically, i now want to go there every day, forever. i hadn't been in a while and this place is seriously good. if you're ever in SLC and need a place to eat, come here. how's that for an endorsement?

christmas time.

since i work today, jared and i celebrated our christmas yesterday...

one of my favorite traditions is driving around on christmas eve to see christmas lights. i LOVE good christmas lights. so friday night (our christmas eve), jared drove me around on the way home from work to find some. we ended up in the avenues and there were hardly any lights!! the avenues need to step it up! we still had a blast with groceries in the trunk, listening to christmas music on the radio, and trying to scope out some solid lights.

yesterday morning we opened gifts, rocked a little sherlock holmes at the theater (pretty great), and had an incredible dinner. we had a great day.

i will admit that i would much rather be at church with my sweetheart today, celebrating christmas, than at the hospital for 12 hours... but i'm grateful for our day yesterday.

merry merry christmas everyone. i hope you all have a beautiful day!

avenues christmas lights... i enjoyed these enough to have jared pull over.

can you tell i'm excited for my new stainless steel cookware?! thanks mom !

wishing you all a very merry christmas!!! jared and i will be celebrating on christmas eve this year as i will be working christmas day. both of our sweet parents in arizona and in washington keep mentioning how much they wish we could come home for the holidays... and we wish we could, too! hopefully next year.

much, much love to all of you. we are truly grateful for wonderful friends and family. and we are especially grateful for our savior, jesus christ. we love this christmas season and the opportunity we have to remember christ's birth. merry christmas everyone!

it's chilly!

this little lady has been a magnet over the last month or so. it's getting colder and she's becoming more and more of a cuddler. either she's chilly... or maybe she's as big a fan of pinterest as i am. yeah... probably pinterest.

hope you're all happy, well, and warm!! happy almost thanksgiving!

three tangent tuesday.

i'm a pretty pathetic blogger lately, sorry. jared and i both have been so sick on and off, for what seems like months now. it's a little discouraging sometimes. and the few times we've been out and about, i haven't been toting my camera around. you know me.. what's a blog post without photos?? we're both feeling better and are loving that autumn is here! still need to go up in the canyons and take mad photos. the leaves are amazing.

anyway, here's a little three tangent tuesday for ya.

first, like i said, i love autumn. so maybe i've made apple crisp 3 times in the last month. what?

my new tai-pan bowl that i love. didn't get a photo of apple crisp, but i can't get enough of green apples lately.

second, a couple of nights ago, our power went out for about 4 hours. so, jared and i made shadow puppets on the ceiling while laying in bed. we need to practice our shadow puppet skills, big time. but i had fun.

third, i have a hard time leaving furniture in the same position for very long. jared can attest to this. i love repositioning pieces and finding new (and better) placement. so yesterday i went to town.



happy tuesday everyone.

music monday: the radio dept.

my sweetheart is sick. poor thing. he has a crazy high fever, chilling, sore throat. the whole shabang. i'm pounding C and garlic... it better not head my way.

he requested tomato soup and grilled cheese today. it hit the spot.

we're currently enjoying the radio dept. so i'm sharing with you my favorite song of theirs today, "never follow suit." enjoy.

three tangent tuesday.

i have been sick lately.. so sick of being sick. currently fighting a kidney infection and now i'm just hoping the antibiotics i'm on will take care of it. anyway, been spending too much time at home, in bed.

so here is a home confined three tangent tuesday. remember those?

first.. i snatched up an ivy cutting and am going to plant it once it gets some roots. wish me luck!

second, our girls.. this first photo of margot kills me. such a face. that girl has attitude.

and here they are laying next to me now

third, i love native american art and style. been looking around online lately for some treasures. here are a few i'm loving.

moccasins found via (and they're my size!)

happy tuesday everyone.
