Charlie Brown

I might be one of those crazy dog ladies, but anyone who has a dog (especially getting one before having kids) will get this post..
Our little Charlie is the love of our lives! We got him just a couple of weeks after we were married. We had decided that we would wait a couple of years to get a dog, but one thing lead to another.. and he has been such a little joy!! He truly is our little baby boy! This isn't meant to be a bragfest but I seriously think he is such a good dog! We really lucked out cause he potty trained so well, has never chewed a single belonging of ours, and always gives us lots of loves! It's nice when I have to come home before Kristopher gets home from work, to have somebody so excited to see me. So I thought I would post some pictures of our little bundle of JOY!

Charlie with his sisters (he's the all white looking one)

Right after we picked him up

I found them like this when I was cooking (my favorite part is Kris's hand on the remote while sleeping)

He loves his Dad!

And posing for the camera..


Santa's Little Helper

Like I said, loves to pose

Loves to shop at Petco

So yes, I'm slightly obsessed with my dog! But he has been such a fun little companion and we LOVE him!

The Holidays

I can't believe January is almost over. I feel like I'm finally recovered from our trip to Florida we took after Christmas. We had a wonderful 1st Christmas together. We were with the Brown side this Christmas in Utah, and had a lot of fun! I feel really blessed to have married into such a wonderful family! It makes it so much easier to be away from my parents and siblings. We left for Orlando on the Dec. 29th. My parents recently moved to that area and we had not got to visit them yet. It was so good to see their new house. Both of my sisters and my brother in law came out for the week. We had a lot of fun going to the beach, fishing, Epcot, shopping (while the boys played golf of course) and many other things. It was nice to just be together, since it is a rare thing these days. I started a new job teaching esthetics at Skin Science Institute at the Lindon location. It's so fun to be back doing what I love! I am still working with the Chiropractor in the afternoons. Kris started winter semester of school and is still working full time. I got used to spending more time with him when he was out of school and I was only working part time, so it's a hard adjustment with the long hours of separation. But that's how it goes, right? My good friend Jamie was such a dear to give me some much needed Blogging 101, so hopefully I'll be able to start posting more often!
