We've Moved!

Brian and I moved to Spanish Fork, Utah. We are loving it. We have been here a little over a week now. Still trying to get settled, but we are happy here. Mostly because of the money we will be saving! :)
It has been fun to see some friends since we have been here. It really is good to be back. I love the mountains and love that we live just minutes from the Spanish Fork Canyon. The day after we arrived we took a drive up the canyon and drove all the way to Helper (just before Price) before we turned around. It was such a pretty drive....all the fall colors are starting to show. It really is beautiful here.
Well, once I get a chance to add pictures I will.

Our new Car

Yep it even came with a DVD player! We got this car for a steal and it came with fun features. Back up camera, touchscreen radio that is SWEET! I can download all of my music onto it (it is 30 gigs) and never have to take my tunes along because the car already has them. YES! That is my fav feature! There are 3 in the dash and 2 in the floor in the middle row. Storage is every where!! There is even a storage bin under the front passenger (which also folds down) for me to hide my purse if I have too!!! The middle seats also recline. So, who wants to go for a ride???
Our new Dodge Journey....funny that when they gave us the keys and we turned on our FREE FOR ONE YEAR Sirius radio it was playing a Journey song! lol

Fun in SoCal

I thought this blog background best describes where we are living. Life is good here in Lake Elsinore. We love our ward. The people here are great! We are having a slight problem with our credit right now. We wanted to try to get this house and when our Lender ran our credit report it had a few extra's on there that didn't belong to Brian or I.....a mortgage to name one. It doesn't look like credit fraud or anything like a stolen identity because when I called on the Hooter's card...yes, that is right, a Hooter's card....they nice gentleman couldn't pull up info with my SSN or Brian's SSN. So, that is good right. Geesh. We just want to buy this cute starter house. Is that too much to ask?

But, other than that, we are good and having fun. One of my Provo roommates and her husband came out a couple of weeks ago and that was fun to see Joleene and Dan. We spent the day down in San Diego. We have also been having fun game nights with our friends Jennifer (one of my mission comps) and her husband Karl. They are our best friends and we really enjoy spending time with them and their cute little girls!

Brian and I are happy here in our little corner of SoCal.

Fun Weekend

Brian and I went to San Diego this weekend. The weather was beautiful. We spent some time at the Mormon Batallion site. It was incredible. The tour was quite fun and inter-active. Brian got to pan for fools gold at the end and we got our picture taken. The spirit was strong and I got to look at the roster and found Thomas Karren (my great, great, great grandfather) and there was a picture and bio on him. Very special to see that. Also found a Samuel Lewis that I think might be a relation, not sure. My dad is looking into it hopefully. ;)

We also walked around Old Town San Diego. Loved it!! It was great. Amazing buildings and fun vendors lining the street. I am in love with San Diego!

I will be posting pictures either later today or tomorrow.

Kings game with the Lewis Clan

We had a good time...the whole fam went!

Jerome continued....

Ok, so I don't know what is wrong with my stupid blog but it would not let me write about the pictures we took at the mine and Ghost Town in Jerome. Brian was in HEAVEN with all the old cars. It was pretty cool!

If you have ever been to Jackson California than you have been to Jerome Arizona. It totally reminded me of that. They look a lot alike. Except Jerome is literally on the side of a mountain with an amazing view.

We had a fun day!

Prescott and Jerome Arizona

After Spring Training (we tried to get into an Angels game also but it was sold out...bummer) we headed up to Prescott to visit with Brian's Uncle Gary and Aunt Roz (we met Brian's parents up there). Prescott is a very pretty town. I really loved it there. They had the most incredible view from their house. They took us to Jerome (supposed to be a Ghost Town) to check out the old mine there. Pretty cool.....more pics! :)
These pics are from the balcony on the back of Gary and Roz's house....amazing view of Prescott!

I love this picture because you can see thru the house and see Thumb Butte that is on the other side of Prescott.A cool lake just outside of Prescott.

Spring Training

Brian and I went to a Cubs spring training game last month and had a BLAST! Here are some pictures that we took during the game........

Relief Society Lesson

So I am getting ready to teach my first lesson this sunday. Why is my lesson just not popping for me? Any suggestions on making it a fun lesson? It is lesson 3 in the Gospel Principle book. I am actually excited for this calling. I really love our ward and the women in the ward are so friendly. I actually look forward to going to church. The spirit in this ward really does get me thru the week. I think I am just stressing because it is my first time teaching R.S. since 1998. I wish it was tuesday of NEXT week! ;)

Fun in Vegas

I have an old roommate from Provo that lives in Vegas with her husband. Joleene is one of my favorite people. I thought it was time that Brian met her and vice versa. I also thought it was time for me to meet her hubby. Joleene and Dan got married a couple of months before Brian and I. The four of us get along fantastic. We have so much in common. It made for a really fun weekend. We cannot wait for them to come and visit us next month! Here are some photos of our trip.....(the fountain behind me and Jo...yep ALL CHOCOLATE!!!)

Our 1st Anniversary

We had a great time on our anniversary. We spent the weekend in Anaheim. We went to D-Land. I can't believe that it has been a year. It went by so quickly. I love being married to Brian. He has made my life so much BETTER! Happy one year Babe! Brian and his friend Donald Brian won me a Dumbo at California Adventure

Happy New Year!

We spent New Year's in Bodega Bay with my family. G & G Fisher came also. The cabin was cute but a little cramped. Amazing view of the ocean! It rained almost the whole time we were there. We did see some sun the day we left! Always happens that way. Here are some pics of our trip....
