This past Saturday Justin decided to go on a "guys day tip" out ice fishing with some friends from work. He had never been before and had a blast! He caught the first fish of the day measuring 15 inches long. I named the fish Travis the Trout. Justin came home with a terrible sunburn from sitting on the snow covered ice all day but said it was totally worth it. I was excited for his success but not excited to have a big dead fish in our sink for Justin to gut. He wanted to show me how it's done in case I ever have to "feed our family in the wilderness"... we will become vegetarians. All I know is that I walked into the kitchen to see a headless bloody fish. I wanted to barf. He was loving it. He cleaned it out and stuffed the poor thing with lemon and baked it. Dinner was served and to my surprise, it wasn't all that bad. Not great, but not bad.

Once a boy, always a boy

Yesterday my girlfriend Candice and her sweet little boys came over to play. The two year old was playing with Legos on the floor when Justin got home and Jus just couldn't resist but sit and help build! It was so cute. They were both way onto it, I just had to take a picture! 

B took a break to watch TV while Justin kept working. 
Best buds.

Valentines Day

This Valentines day was great! It was so nice to have it on a Saturday. Justin and I spent the day just hanging out and that night went up to Log Haven for dinner. Log Haven was awesome! The food is amazing!!! Totally worth the drive up to Salt Lake.  Anyone living here must go there at least once. 
Our valentines day gifts to each other were very nice. Justin got me a sewing machine and I framed a collage of tickets from events we've been to together and a list of things I love about him. I love the sewing machine! I've never done much sewing but I recently learned how to quilt so now I can quilt at home and maybe learn how to do some other things as well. Justin actually gave it to me a week early. He had his friend from work take him to the "The Cotton Shop" to buy it. Justin said he felt extremely uncomfortable walking into a sewing shop with "another dude". He must love me. When he got home he put a note on the box and left it sitting on the bed while I was in the shower. I was so surprised when I walked in and saw it. He is so thoughtful. I love you Justin! 

My gift to Justin. 

Pretty nice right?!

Justin's note he had taped to the box. So sweet.

Super Bowl Sunday!

Justin was excited to get home after church today and get the game on. I was excited to eat. We tried to get together with friends to watch the game but it didn't work out so it was just the two of us at home. The poor guy had to watch the super bowl with with a girl... me. He was cheering for the Cardinals so I used the opportunity to bet against him and and made him promise to give me a back rub if the Stealers won and vise versa. It was close but the Stealers won, HOORAY!!! We pigged out on chips and cookies and soda and Justin tried to explain how the game of football works, quizzing me off and on throughout the game (Like no one's ever explained it before... I DONT CARE!). Still it was nice to relax before the week starts up again. I hope everyone had a fun night!
