YEP!!! That's right!! We got a pomeranian FINALLY!! He is a boy, full bread, papered, and adorable! He was born on March 9th, 2010. His name is Cerberus Bear. For those of you who don't know what Cerberus means or comes from, it is the 3 headed dog from Greek Mythology that guards the doors to the underworld. :) Haha!! Anyways. here are some adorable pictures of him!

SOO much has happened!!!

Well, since Christmas, there has been a lot that has happened!

My sister and I had an amazing opportunity to go to Caper which is a Paul Mitchell The School convention in Las Vegas. We got to meet a lot of Paul Mitchell Idols, they taught us what they know, how they made it to the top, what they did, what to do after we graduate, how to get to where you want to be, etc. It was so much fun!!
I also got an amazing oppurtunity to be a server! I now work at the bees, yes Applebees! I love it there! It is very nice, both of us having a job, we have been able to start building our savings (yesssssssssssssssss) and getting the things we need, like health insurance for me!

Valentines Da
I worked all day, but the day before, we went to Little Italy on the corner of center street and University. It is AMAZING!! here is a cute little picture of us!! After we ate, we went out to a movie, I don't remember which one... but it was a great night!! I am so glad that I found Joshua, he is the PERFECT man for me and I am so lucky to have him.

Photo Shoots
There have been 2 photo shoots that I have participated in. One of the photo shoot days, I did 2 photo shoots in one day! So I have 3 different styles! (the last one, I haven't gotten the final draft yet, so the picture I have is a picture of a picture of the one I will get, this one is un edited..) look at them, tell me what you think!!

Happy Hollidays!!!

We spent Thanksgiving here in Utah this year. Josh had work and I had school. It was fun, we went to my Aunt and Uncle's house in Sandy. Very good cook, mmmmmmmmMmmmm! We were assigned to make an apple pie, and let me tell you, it was so good! I felt very proud of myself, and it was the first pie I had ever made!!! :)

This Christmas was the best one yet! We went to California on the 18th! We went to Disneyland and California Adventure on the 19th for E
mily Duvall's 18th birthday!! Happy birthday Em! That was the first time that we went to Disneyland together. We went on so many rides!! Matterhorn, It's A Small Word After All, Indiana Jones, Autopia, Soaring Over California, Slash Mountain, Haunted House, Toy Story Game/Ride, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain, Star Tours, Tower of Terror, etc, and then we went on the Winnie the Poo Ride/Adventure!!! hahahhahha
We went and got free tortillas in Cali Adventure, they are so good!! Josh and I like the Flour more then the corn.
We were exhausted by time we were ready to go home! here are some pictures of Disneyland!!Rain Forest Cafe

I got up at 4:45 the next morning to go fishing with my family and the Skousens, Josh decided to sleep in. I was SOOOOO excited to go fishing!! I don't know if a lot of people know this, but I absolutely
LOVE fishing!! I became a fan 2 years ago at Lake Powell!! I think I was really spoiled with what type f fishing we did there, though. Blaine has this AMAZING boat that has a radar that shows what is directly beneath him, so we were able to cheat a lil bit... :) and on top of that... Blane has amazing fishing poles and amazing skill!!! I can still hear him yell, "OHHHHHH, FISH ON!!! FIIISSSHHHH OONNNNNN!!!!!!!!!" hahahhahah... plus, I heard that Lake Powell has a lot better fishing then most places. Here is a flash from the past picture of my fishing adventures at Lake Powell. Fabulous, right? ha Anyways... we went fishing for about 5 hours on Friday and NONE of us got anything, well, Papa Skousen got a big branch.... lol but that was about it. SO SAD! I caught a bit of a sunburn though, which was nice, cause it wasn't painful and it reminded me of summer! (cant wait)
The week leading up to Christ
mas was fun, mostly slow pace, mostly. We got sushi with my dad and sister, Raechel. That was a big treat!! We spent a lot of time with family, that was great.
Josh and I were able to get presents for everyone that they could use and that was personal, which was really cool! We got my mom a memory chip for her phone so she can store more then 10 pictures at a time, a cookbook from my old that my old ward put together, some pictures of the family, and a facebook!! (hahaha) We got my brother, Ryan, bb's and a new bb gun. We got my sister, Raechel, a visor mirror for her car, and we got my dad an 8X10 picture of a Spicy Tuna Hand Roll and had our friend print on the bottom of the picture, "every day should start and end with a spicy tuna hand roll" (he lovesssss those). Then we got Josh's parents the cookbook from my old ward, and then we got our secret Santa, which was Danny, Josh's younger brother, a new wallet. :)

What we got for Christmas;
Flannel Bed Sheets, Wireless Router for the Internet, Shoes for Josh, Snuggies!!!!
(yes, for both of us!!!) pictures coming soon... :) ,Vitamins, Bunch of games (mancalla, scrabble, backgammon, and a puzzle), Tucanos gift certificate, other gift certificates, Clothes, Candy!, Money! etc It was a great Christmas!! But what was the most shocking present was what we got from the Duvall kids.... baby booties and a baby card.... I'm pretty sure our expression says it all.

We have a great family tradition in my family of new years eve. My dad and uncles were raised in Arcadia, which is very close to Pasadena (where the Rose Parade is every year), and they used to go watch the floats set up the night before the parade and then go around the floats and go to this restaurant named Twoheys, have dessert, and watch the floats pass by there again. We still do this tradition today!! Pictures coming soon!!! After we were done, we went back to Murrieta. Josh and I went to his house in Temecula for the actual new year count down, it was really fun!!

Happy Holidays Everyone!!
