The Weekend . . .

We had an awesome weekend! Friday night Luke and I went to the Bountiful Temple with my mom and dad. That always feels like a good ending to a long week. After the session we went to Texas Road House for dinner. I swear their cinnamon rolls are my weakness. I think I ate my entire weeks worth of carbs in one meal. Yikes! It was totally worth it though. Thanks mom and dad for the great night! We love you guys.

I think I spent the whole weekend eating out. Saturday afternoon I went to lunch with my favorite girls from Salt City! When I lived in Sugarhouse, the four of us were attached at the hip. I don't think there is a single memory from then that doesn't have at least one of these girls in it. We sat at our table for close to 3 hours catching up and hearing the latest on each others lives. It's weird how much everything has changed. There are babies on the way, new husbands and new jobs. This is one group of girls that I hope I never loose touch with.

Love and miss you guys!!

Pictures of the new house!

As promised, here are pics of the new house. We moved in May 27, 2010.... PS I have no idea why everything is underlined, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to fix it. So, sorry about that :) Anyway, here is the front of the house. I love the yard in the Summer when it's in full bloom with bright colored flowers. It looks sad in the Winter.

Here are some of my favorite accessories. My mom and sisters gave these to me for my birthday last year and I think they are my favorite thing in my house. I have been obsessed with this green color lately.
Still, to this day and probably forever will I be addicted to Diet Coke. Hi, my name is Mackenzi and I am an addict. This sign defines my love for my addiction!

Here is the dinning room, and our cute tiny table. I love the tall chairs and it fits perfectly in the nook.
Gus was sitting on his rug while I was snapping pictures and I couldn't help but take a few of him. Look at that face! We love our little boy. We have the most well behaved kid in the neighborhood!

Here is the living room just off the kitchen. This is one of my favorite rooms in the house. It's always clean, and the big over sized chairs are angled just enough to watch the sun set at night.

Here is our family / TV room. This has got to be the comfiest couch ever made. The corner of the couch is the most worn because it is our favorite spot to curl up with a blanket and of course a Diet Coke and watch movie.

The entertainment center was here when we moved in and I have to say it was one of the many reasons I loved this house so much. It looks really sad right now because it's half empty and the decorations don't go together but we're getting there. When we were in our apartment I had so many decorations and accessories that I had to leave half of them in boxes. There was literally not an empty wall or corner to fit one more thing. But, the house is a totally different ball game. It's going to take me a while to get this place decorated the way I want it.

The photographer from our wedding made this tile picture of us and it hangs in our family room. I love it, and this wall was the perfect place for it!!

We are so excited to be in our house. We love our neighborhood, and the ward. We couldn't be happier!

We went to Vegas with our good friends Corey and Token Criddle. I surprised Luke for his birthday and had so much fun! I promise it wont be another year before the next update :)
