Eric has a new toy!

For months on end Eric has been talking about buying a shotgun. At first I didn't think he was serious, but then he kept talking about it. I think it all really started when we went to visit our friends the Bakers down in St. George. They took us out shooting in the desert, and it was a lot of fun! Just in this past year his desire to be a gun owner has increased 100 fold. He would love to go to Cabela's to look at the guns. I can almost guarantee that he checked the KSL classifieds at least weekly to see if there were any great deals. Then we started hanging out with our friends Mike and Lisa more and guess what? Mike likes guns too. One week-end they went to Montana and Mike came home with a shotgun. The next week-end Mike and Eric went shopping for guns. That was this past week-end. I went on a hike with one of my old roomies while Eric went shopping. When Eric got home he told me that he had found the one that he wanted. It turns out that I had found a gun on sale randomly when I was looking for a swimsuit at Big 5 Sporting Goods here. I sent him that ad in an e-mail that he ended up checking after going gun shopping. The gun that I had sent him was the same gun that he had found but for $70 less. What a deal shopper I am. That was the first and only gun I found for him. I did well!! Anyways, we went to the store that day and bought it. However, we did have to prove our Utah residency, but since neither of us have a Utah license, it caused a little bit of a problem. Nothing was going to stand in Eric's way of getting that gun though. We eventually got it figured out and Eric is now the proud owner of a 12 gauge shotgun. Congratulations Eric! I don't have a picture of him with it yet, but after we go shooting this week-end I will post one for sure.

Has it really been that long?

I didn't really think it had been that long since I posted something until my sister-in-law Carly pointed out that my last post was from March 28th. WOW!! I have been really bad. I guess time flies when you're having fun. I don't want to make this a long boring post, so I will just list the highlights of the last month and a half. First of all, the winter semester ended at BYU which means we are that much closer to getting done with school. By we, I mean Eric. He did really well that semester. I am so proud of him. He does a really great job in his major. Second, Eric got a job a little while back for the Bradley Agency, which is the student run PR agency on campus. He was working for them for credit in the winter, but is now getting paid. It's great. Third, Eric got an internship doing media relations for BYU sports. He was just helping covering Women's Softball. He will work with them all through the summer helping with who knows what, but then in the Fall he will help with Football. He gets to sit in the press box and eat catered Tucano's. SO not fair. It will be good for him. I'm proud of him for that too. I have the most amazing husband!!! :) Alright fourth, my mom and sister were out here this past week-end for a fun little vacation. We went to a baseball game, went to Tucano's, went hiking, played lots of games, went on walks, spent Mother's Day together, and just had a lot of fun. I love being with my family. I wish that we had more family close by. Maybe someday. Fifth, we got to talk to my brother Jason this past Sunday on Mother's Day. It was the last time that we will talk to him while he's on his mission. He is actually coming home in 5 weeks. We are all so exicted. Its been so long! He sounded really happy, which was good. It was interesting to hear some stories about Detroit. It sounds so different up there. I'm very excited to have him come home. He's going to be moving out to Provo in September, and hopefully he will want to hang out with his married sister. So last but not least, May 3rd was our FIRST ANNIVERSARY!! We went up to Park City for the week-end and had a whole lot of fun! It was rainy the whole week-end but that didn't stop us. We did a little bit of shopping at the Outlets, went to dinner, walked around downtown, went to the Olympic Park, and swam. It's always nice to get away, but even better to get away when you have something so fun to celebrate. It was a great time. I wish it could have been longer though. Maybe next year! Anyways, that's all I've got for now. Hopefully I won't be such a lazy blogger this next month.

Oh wait, Eric will be sad if I forgot to talk about Easter. All Eric talked about for about a month was having lamb on Easter. Well, him and Ryan decided that they were really going to do it. Amber and I didn't think it would happen. I was really nervous the day before when Eric didn't have the meat. Well Costco came through for us, and we got a nice piece of Lamb that Eric and Ryan flavored very nicely. They did a great job. I was very impressed.
