Back by popular demand (not really)
our list of Favorites for this past year!
These are the things we were obsessed with,
couldn't live with out, and used/had ALOT.
And yes, I do realize a-lot of these have
to do with food...
First up and in no particular order:
(Most of these pictures are not mine.)
I can't mention a post like this
without Zupas. Best soup, best
bread, best salads.
This happens to be one of my favorite combos...
Tomato Soup and Nuts about Berries Salad. MMMM!
This game happens to be a favorite with our
friends in Salt Lake. Hardly a night when we
are all together goes by without breaking out
the cards and chips. So much fun. Especially
when I win, but I'll admit, that doesn't happen
James and I have pretty much
perfected the art of homemade
pizza this year. (At least to
our standards.) The secret is
FRESH mozzarella and thin crust.
We were on a quest to re-make pizza
from Italy. We aren't that close actually
but we are the closest we've ever been.
This is more of a James favorite
than my favorite. The series is good
I just got tired of the same thing.
But Jack Bauer is still a stud and
James LOVES this show!
This is a new-found favorite.
We showed up on a Friday one
night, ordered the date night
special. Ate so much delicious
food they had to wheel us out
of there. We have not let ourselves
go back, but just know that it is
hard not to.
James started school this year!
This is a pic of his first day.
He is glad that this semester is
over with, but he must admit that
he enjoyed himself much more than he
thought he would. That also makes for
a happy wife. One semester down!
If our budget allows it, we try to
get out on two date nights. One date
night for dinner and one date night
for a small treat. Well, we are obsessed
with all things related to Oreo's and Ice
Cream. Coincidentally, one of our favorite
places to go in Logan is Casper's Ice Cream.
The place is so cute and classic and the ice
cream is rich and thick.
Um. if you read this blog at all
you already know we had problems with
this show a couple months ago. It took
over our whole life and we/I love Michael
Scofield. It was a great series, but
most especially the first season.
This is a great Date Night place.
We can order one burrito for $10 bucks,
split it between the two of us, and
chow down on free all you can eat chips
and salsa. It is a great deal!
I don't know if this should be called
a Favorite thing, but it was a big
thing for us in 2010. We left our
jobs, friends, and first apartment
in Salt Lake for a big move to Logan
so James could start school. It has
turned out to be a great move, but we
still have to say we loved our time in
Salt Lake and miss our friends. We visit
them every chance we get! Here are some
pics of the old apartment... Oh and
we took that bottom picture after a day
full of moving heaving boxes up and
down 2 flights of stairs all day. Don't
Now don't let the seemingly lame-ness quality of
this next picture fool you. This game rocks.
Our favorite couple to play this with would
probably be Dave and Teresa. It is always
boys against girls and there is always
fights and "googling" and looking up words
in the dictionary. It is a good night.
And we all make up in the end.
I've been busy baking a bit lately.
My favorite things to make are cakes
and cupcakes. Decorating them is just
so much fun. My cousin and I took some
cake decorating courses earlier this
year that was so much stinkin fun.
Here are a few creations
of the past few months.
James and I were able to go to Oregon
Coast with my family this year. It was
the first time my family as it is now, has
ever gone on an official vacation. It was
awesome and so fun to show my family
This year has been a great year of
learning and education and officially
getting my business started. I have
taken classes that I loved from a great
teacher Brooke Snow. I feel I have
grown so much in photography and my
understanding my camera and being more
creative. I love Photography and I'm
excited to learn where 2011 takes me!
I'm sure there has been more things that have
stood out to us this year, but I think this
pretty much sums up our year up to this point.

favorite things of 2009.
