I'm not much for going out after Thanksgiving and shopping. We went to Kohls at 11am the morning after and the lines to pay wrapped half way around the store. So we turned around and left. Instead I got online and found 2 great deals at Kohls and Macy's. I got 1 duvet (regularly $160, down alternative), 2 pillows (buy 1 get one free, reg $20 each), 1 duvet cover, 2 shams, 3 decorative pillows, and 1 set of sheets (together regularly over $500) ALL for under $300! The receipe? Online deals including free shipping from both stores + extra 15% off from both stores + all items on sale 60% or more + $20 gift card = I saved more than I spent. Love that.

We had 2 Thanksgivings this year. We started out at Shawn's aunts house with his whole family, which was great! We could only stay a little over an hour b/c of my allergies to her cat, too bad. Then we moved on to Jessica's where we attempted Jessica and Nick's first Thanksgiving, which was a success! Jess and Nick made the turkey, stuffing, carrots, jello and potatoes. We made the rolls, grandma Lyon's pumpkin pie and failed at the gravy. Everything turned out great except my gravy, whoops. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving too!

Shawn and I went to So You Think You Can Dance tonight. The show was awesome! We love watching the TV show but have concluded it is even better in person. Shawn's sister Katie and her boyfriend came over for dinner before, we had homemade BBQ chicken pizza yum! Then we all went to the show. Our seats weren't together, we bought ours for a deal on KSL and Katie won hers off the radio. But it was still great, these dancers are AMAZING! Seriously one of our best date nights ever. I die, it was BANANAS! Janene and Jason Addiction with Kupuno and Kayla Top 3 guys Evan, Brandon, and Ade Funny thieves Jeanette and Brandon Brandon and Janene doing Battlefield Brandon and Janette super girls Janene, Melissa, and Kayla Katelyn and Jason doing Bollywood The Butt dance with Evan and Randi (Randi's from Utah!) Janene and Phillip Pretty good pics considering how far away we were! They may be a little blurry but they came out better than I thought they would.

Happy 23rd birthday to Shawn! This weekend is filled with activities with family and friends. Everything started yesterday by getting off work early, then West High football, then the New Yorker for my dad's 60th birthday. Today we had doughnuts and hot chocolate for JD's birthday, baby blessing for Josh (our newest nephew), then undecided plans for tonight, either dinner, football game, or Halloween party? Anyway, it's been a packed weekend with more to come. Happy birthday to dad, JD, and Shawn! In the craziness of everything I just wanted to make sure Shawn knew I love and appreciate him! Happy Birthday babe!

Shawn and I both had the day off today, and we spent it golfing. We started chipping and putting at Eaglewood, where I chipped one in. Then we moved to Oakridge for 9 nine holes with my dad and JD. Back to Eaglewood for a bucket and 9 more holes. As I was walking to the range I found $20 on the ground! On the 6th hole at Eaglewood Shawn shanked it far left into some houses that lined the course. As we drove up to the house we found some kids and their dad, where the following conversation happened: the dad-Did you you hit a Nike? ....(we shook our heads no) Callaway? (again no) ... how about a Precept? Shawn - No, I ha a Titleist the dad - oh where did that one go guys? We saw one of those too. The dad proceeded to find Shawn's ball and throw it to him. Ha good thing the kids were playing football and all had helmets on! 2 buckets of balls, 3 birdies, 1 chip in, 2 free rounds of golf, + $20 later and no Costco...not a bad day!

Wow one year later and still going strong! It seems like I have just always been with Shawn, but at the same time it is crazy we've already been married for a year. It's been absolutely amazing and we can't wait for the adventures ahead. To celebrate we headed to San Diego for a few days. We enjoyed the sun, sorry about the rain back here! We went to the beach, where we saw dolphins, Sea World, Ruth's Chris for dinner, and Seaport village. It was a blast!
