No Such Thing as "Fall"

I had to change my background picture today cause I realized that Rexburg doesn't have a "Fall" season. It just goes from summer to winter to miserable cold back to summer again.

Weird.


Anthony and I had a great Thanksgiving break! We got the whole week off of school so it was nice not having to think about school for a little while. The week didn't start off to great cause Anthony got sick then got me sick. But we got a little Christmas shopping done and some decorations for our apartment!

On Wednesday we drove down to Utah, and spent some time in Salt Lake, Anthony just loves seeing his mission areas! Then we stayed with Scott and Katie that night (thanks guys!) and drove to my Grandparents lodge in Altonah on Thanksgiving morning. We had a delicious dinner and afterwards my grandpa gave us a little gun lesson. Then it was time to go outside and shoot them. There were three handguns that he wanted us to shoot. I have never really shot a gun, I mean I've shot a couple of BB guns with some friends when I was in high school, but those don't really count. I think I did a pretty decent job with the targets. Katie and I were the first ones to actually hit the target pretty well, go us! But then the boys kept practicing and got pretty good... they're so competitive.

Only 2 more weeks left of school till the holidays! We are so excited for Lawrence's wedding in southern California on the 19th (hopefully we'll get some good weather!) and to go to Georgia for Christmas!

(P.S. Sorry there's no pictures... I forgot my camera when we left for thanksgiving :(

New Articles of Faith

I got this email at work the other day and I've never seem it before so I thought it was really funny. So I decided to share it with you! Enjoy!
Sorry if you've already seen this.

Articles of Faith of Mormon Culture
1. We believe in SUVs and minivans, as the form of transportation, and in knee length shorts, which are always nice, and in multilevel marketing.
2. We believe that Church ball players should be punished for their own fouls, and not for unsportsmanlike aggression.
3. We believe that through bread crumbs, cheese, creamy soups, and rice all casseroles can be saved through obedience to ward cookbooks and creativity in the mixing bowl.
4. We believe that the first layers and ingredients of the dip are: first, beans; second, cheese; third, chopped tomatoes; fourth, the gift of sour cream; fifth, olives; sixth, salsa; seventh, guacamole, that is, if you have it.
5. We believe that a Mormon should have a distinguished or a cute name, that it is appropriate to name a child after a church leader or a historical figure including an ancestor, that alternative spellings and French prefixes only add to a name, and that when referring to the names of General Authorities, middle initials should be a part thereof.
6. We believe in the same wall decor that exists in many Mormon homes, namely, framed family proclamations, vinyl lettering, inspirational word signs, family photos, pictures of temples and Jesus, and so forth.
7. We believe in the gift of the re-gift, Church books, crafts, family photos, baked goods, emergency supply kits, and so forth.
8. We believe in sparkling grape juice so long as it is nonalcoholic; we also believe in bringing root beer and sprite to ward parties.
9. We believe in all that we have scrapbooked, all that we will now scrapbook, and we believe that we will yet scrapbook many great and important things pertaining to our family, friends, pets, and vacations.
10. We believe in the literal mixing of ketchup and mayo and in the generous application of ranch dressing; that CBAs (church-based acronyms) will be used to describe YM/YW, PEC, the Y, NCMO, and CTR; that Mitt Romney will get Mormons to vote for him any time he runs; and, that the Mormons will enjoy reading Twilight and The Work and the Glory.
11. We claim the privilege of trying to identify common acquaintances with any visitor at Church, and allow all other people at Church the same privilege, and let them name drop the names of famous and General Authorities how, where, or what they may.
12. We believe in being subject to scoutmasters, pampered chef hostesses, and the writers of the U.S. News and World Report rankings for professional schools, and in obeying, honoring, and sustaining Glenn Beck.
13. We believe in being above average, good at crafts, optimistic, and being fifteen minutes late everywhere we go. Indeed, we may say that we follow BYU football. We believe rumors about famous people joining the Church, we hope to meet the three Nephites, we have endured many pyramid schemes, and hope to be able to endure all pyramid schemes. If there is anything cheap, free, sold in bulk, or given away when somebody is moving, we seek after these things.

Birthday

I know it's been awhile sense my birthday, but I just wanted to sayto everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday and was so thoughtful to make my 21st the best!
Just a little update: It was great having Darcy come and visit us! We did a lot of the things on our list, some we skipped and decided to do other stuff, but all in all I think we did pretty well. We had chocolate and biscuits Saturday morning (Thank you Lorelei for that recipe!) then went to the caves. We even got to stop by the sand dunes on the way home, but it was REALLY windy so we didn't stay too long. Later that night we checked out the Overtime Sports Center then went to the straw maze. And good news! We went through the straw maze in record time! 36 minutes! However, it wasn't very hard to break our last time since last time it took us over 2 hours to get through! Anyways, it was a great weekend and I'm glad that Darcy could come up to visit us!
By birthday was great! We had a mini party that night with some friends and yummy cupcakes. Then Anthony took me out for a birthday dinner that weekend, then shopping :) Then for Halloween we just watched scary movies and ate way too much candy and junk food... We actually had on trick-or-treater stop by our apartment earlier that day, but when he looked in the door and saw us he ran away! I was so excited to give him candy too, but it was too late, by the time I walked over to the door he was already gone.
Next week Anthony is going on his big Bentonville Expedition with the school! Wish him luck for his interviews with WalMart!

Midterms

Man, I had forgotten how much I hate midterm week. Things have been so BUSY this past week. I took 4 midterms already and I have one more the beginning of next week... yuck!
On other news my sister is coming to IDAHO this weekend to visit! I am so excited! She came up once my first semester, but I was a loser then and we didn't really do anything. So this time I can hopefully to make it up to her. Haha!

Here are a few things we have on the agenda:
1. chocolate and biscuits
2. ice caves
3. sand dunes (with a bonfire and s'mores)
4. straw maze
5. big judds (but probably just for ice cream, last time we ate there it didn't really agree with our stomachs...)
6. overtime sports center
and I think thats it... I don't think we can do all of these things but we can try.

Overtime Sports Center

After weeks of research and planning the Overtime Sports Center is finally ready to launch. The GRAND OPENING will be Saturday, October 17th. Our first game will be Texas vs. Oklahoma at 10 am, we expect a huge turnout!!! We will be showing BYU vs. San Diego State at 4 pm and an MLB baseball playoff game, Angels vs. Yankees, at 5:30 pm.

Overtime Sports Center is a venue for BYU-Idaho students to come and watch quality sports and hang out with other students. We have created a relaxed environment with as many as 5 screens of popular sports. Comfortable seating will be provided and quality food and drink will be sold for a reasonable price.

Overtime Sports Center is a BYU-Idaho sponsored business. It was organized by a group of students from the Integrated Business Core (IBC). The business is formed, planned and operated by students in the program for 8 weeks. It has been so much fun learning about running a business in this risk free environment (the only risky part is my grade in the class). Even if our business fails I think we will all learn a lot. But we're not gonna fail, actually, we plan to be the most successful business in the history of the program (it hasn't been around for that long).

Broken Powercord

This is why I haven't posted in awhile...

My power cord starting looking like this a couple months ago... then one day the end just broke off :(
So my computer hasn't been used for the past week (becasue the battery died of course) and its driving me crazy not being able to do my homework whenever I want. And of course other things like blogging. I either have to wait for Anthony to finish doing stuff with his computer (and he has been very busy this past week writing up his IBC business plan) or go to the libary. And who wants to walk all the way to the libary in this freezing cold weather...
Speaking of weather... It snowed on Monday! I couldn't believe it, it was a pretty snow though, so I didn't mind too much... its just that dang wind that makes it so cold!
Anyways, we finally broke down a bought a new powercord (found one for $30 on Amazon... I love that website)but its not going to be here for another week :( Luckily I'm a secretary and sit behind a computer all afternoon so I can sorta catch up on my electronic time... haha.

Peach Cobbler

Sorry, blogger was being stubborn earlier but I think its working now...

The other day Anthony made some delicious chili, so I decided to make some peach cobbler for dessert... we've had some peaches for a while now and they were past the point of eating plain so I found a cobbler recipe that turned out to be delicious, so I thought I would share...

Ingredients:
6 peaches, pealed, pitted and sliced
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup white sugar

1/2 c shorting
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2c all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c milk

1 c boiling water
2-3 tbs butter

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9X13" baking dish.
2. Stir together peaches, cinnamon and 1 c. white sugar. Set aside.
3. In medium bowl, cream together shorting and 1 c. white sugar. Mix in flour, baking powder, and salt alternately with the milk. Pour into prepared pan and top with peach mixture.
4. Drop butter in boiling water and pour all over peaches.
*Its going to seem like your doing something wrong, but trust me...
5. Bake in preheated oven 40 to 45 minutes, until golden brown.

We like it served with vanilla ice cream...
Enjoy!

First Day of Autumn

Anthony went to Badger Creek Monday morning with his IBC class. It is the first time we've been away from each other since we got married...
I miss him
but he is coming home tomorrow! Yay!

P.S. Happy First Day of Autumn!

School

Anthony and I started school last Thursday. Classes have been good so far. Anthony is taking IBC. Its like 4 classes into one and you have the experience of starting and running your own business on campus. You can read more about it here and here if you are interested. I am taking a 2 food classes (yes, I actually get to cook! So I'm pretty excited about that). And some other classes for my minor (Home and Family Living). I am also taking D&C, which is pretty intense but it seems like that's how all religion classes are here.
Anyways, things are good :)

Banana Splits

Doesn't it look delicious?!

Labor Day

Yesterday Anthony and I decided to go to the eastern Idaho state fair. It was in Blackfoot which is little less than an hour from Rexburg. This fair was different than what Anthony and I are used to in Georgia. First of all it was HUGE! I think everyone from Idaho was there. Haha, and it was like a real fair. People would bring their most prized pigs and cows and they would be judged. It was so funny. Here is a picture of the vegetables that won prizes.The biggest pumpkin was 423 lbs! Crazy! We also rode the ferris wheel and Anthony tried to win an x box by getting 3 balls into a basket. Unfortunately the balls were too bouncy and kept falling out. But it was funny watching him try and listening to the guy trying to convince him to try more. Anyways, we ended the night with a delicious funnel cake! (What's a fair without funnel cake?)

Fun Game


Because we live in Rexburg, you often have to look for things to do to keep your self from extreme boredom. The other day I was on the internet looking for games to play and I came across this game. Its called "This Is The Only Level." Its really fun, and funny. It doesn't take very long to beat it either, maybe 30 minutes. Anyways, I thought I would share it with you. Here is the link
http://armorgames.com/play/4309/this-is-the-only-level
*Hint: look at the bottom of the screen (where it tells you what stage your on) it gives you hints on what to do.
Enjoy!

Onion

Have you ever seen an onion this big?

More of our Vacation

Here are some more pictures of our vacation...
This is us at Hollywood Studios at Disney (Right) We went to the Indiana Jones show and Anthony was chosen to be one of the towns people... it is a whole lot more entertaining when you know someone on stage, haha! It was fun watching him.

Animal Kingdom is probably Anthony and I's favorite park... however Epcot is pretty cool too. I think its because Disney did such a good job with it. You really feel like you are walking through a jungle. Haha anyways, this is us at Animal Kingdom after the water ride...

Epcot. We decided to go to all the countries, Anthony had never done them before and honestly I couldn't remember them much either... It was pretty impressive. Disney always does such a good job.We also took some time and decided to go to the beach one day, thats one thing that we really miss while were out here in Idaho.Anthony wanted to dig a hole all the way to China... or wherever, but
then I convinced him that we should just bury him. I made him into a Merman, haha. We were also lucky enough to be there when Anthonys younger brother, Daniel, graduated from basic training. So we drove down to Macon and spent the day with him. His friend, Brett, also came with us.




We got back to Rexburg little over a week ago and miss Georgia all ready :( But were excited that we get to come home for Christmas!
Also one of my best friends growing up (yeah I have a lot of those) Rachel Fairclough got engaged last night and I am so happy for her and her fiance! Congratulations!

GEORGIA!

I just love Georgia! Me and Anthony have had a great time so far... we even decided to extend our stay 2 more weeks! Yay!
Anyways, it has been great being able to see everyone. Here is a picture of us at Kevin and Amy's house with my parents and Amy and Alexander.

My dad also fixed up the wave runner and we went to Lake Lanier during the week. We were actually quite lucky cause it had been raining the entire time we've been home. but it didn't rain that day! Anthony had never been on a wave runner before so it was really fun!
On Saturday we went to Alexander's one year old birthday! It was so cute! You can read more about it here.That night was Natalie's reception (my best friend growing up). We have been friends ever sinse we were three! She was so beautiful and it was so nice to be there to celebrate with her! Here is a picture of Rachel, Me, Natalie, Kelsey, and Kelley. We all grew up with each other.
This past week we were in Orlando with my parents. We went to the beach, Disney World, and to a water park. I'll write about that another time, but thats all for now!

End of Semester

Done with school! ...At lease for awhile... haha! It was a really good semester for both of us. It's a lot easier to do homework and stuff when you already live with the one that you want to be with all the time. We have a 7 week break till school starts again the September. Anthony has his online accounting class that he will be busy with during the break. But I need some ideas! Anyone have any suggestions to keep me busy?

Thursday, July 16, 2009

One Week!

Only one more week of school! Yay!
We are excited to have a nice long break coming up and really excited that we get to visit GEORGIA for a little while!

Half-Blood Prince

Last night Anthony and I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. We both loved it! I want to go see it again already. Haha! It is probably the best movie yet, it was a lot funnier than the other ones and I think it followed the book pretty well (however, I haven't actually read the book all the way through so I don't know for sure) But from what I remember Darcy telling me about it, it followed it well. It was kinda hard getting up this morning for class but it was worth it to go!

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Congratulations!

I got a phone call from my sister today, unfortunately I couldn't answer it because I was taking a test... but she left a message and told me that she got into the accounting program at BYU!! Just wanted say CONGRATULATIONS DARCY!!
I have always admired her hard work in school and I know that shes gonna do great! Love you Narce!

Good News

This past weekend Anthony and I went to Salt Lake to go to a wedding. It was for Logan Christensen, Anthony's good friend growing up. It was a beautiful day and they are so cute together!
We also went to a lunch to celebrate after wards at the Lion House in Salt Lake. Apparently they have famous rolls, they were delicious!
We also got to stay with Scott and Katie and Luke! It was great to see them, even though it was a short visit. Thank you guys!
On another note, one of my best friends from GA, Kelsey, is visiting this weekend! We have been friends ever since we can remember and I am excited to spend some time with her this week!
We also have a short week this week and a 4 day weekend (because of fourth of July). I am really looking forward to it. On Saturday Anthony and I are planning on going to Idaho Falls to celebrate Independence day. There is a HUGE fireworks show every year... seriously, I have never seen so many fireworks. And if anyone knows my family, thats saying a lot! Haha!
Life is good.

Saturday, June 20, 2009

I got a job!

I got a job! (finally... haha)
I am going to be a secretary in the internship office for Agriculture and Life Sciences department on campus. I start training next week and officially start in the fall. But I can work a little bit during the 7 week break which will be nice. Now I don't have to work early morning custodial!

Rainy

Flood Warning
It has been raining almost everyday for who knows how long... I lost track 15 days ago. Haha! Don't get us wrong, we like the rain... but not this much...


By the way, there really is a flood warning for our area... Idaho is definitely not used to this much rain in the summer. Haha!

Who Knew?

Today I dropped Anthony's brother, Daniel, off at the Idaho Falls airport. He is going to be at basic training for the National Guard in Georgia (lucky). Haha, he is going to be gone for about 6 months and I wish him the best of luck!
After I dropped Daniel off I decided to go change my name on my drivers license. Well, I guess get an Idaho license and change my name. So I walk over to the license administration building and tell them that I need a new license. Then they tell me that I have to take the written part of the driving test again! I thought maybe I could get away with just taking it then, how hard could it be right? However, the nice lady at the counter told me that there are different laws in Idaho because of the snow and such, so she gave me a book and told me to study for little while. I was so sad that along with my other homework, I have to study for a driving test. Haha!
Anthony is so lucky he is a guy.

4 Day Weekend

This weekend was a four day weekend! We had Memorial day off and Tuesday the school had an "examination" day.... don't know what that means, but we got the day off of school so I'm not complaining.
It has been very relaxing just staying in Rexburg. Its actually kinda nice when everyone leaves for long weekends, it gets really quiet and it feels like you have the whole place to yourself.
Anyways, we decided to go camping for a day. Anthony's parents got us a tent and a double sleeping bag for our wedding and we were glad we could finally use it. Thank you!!
So here are a few pictures from our trip...

Anthony setting up the tentIt had rained right after we finished setting up the tent (Good timing!). We were sad, but luckily it only rained for an hour or two.
Our sweet fire that we cooked our foil dinners on.Well thats all for now. Just a short week left for school then its the weekend again!

Spring?


Today is the first day in Rexburg that it actually looks/ kinda feels like spring! Yay! I didn't even have to wear a jacket to class this morning!

Foxes, and Wolves, and Bison, Oh My!

My parents came into town this weekend to visit with us for awhile. On Friday we went to TGI Fridays (ha!) and I got my wedding picures! Yay! Then we headed to Yellowstone for the rest of the weekend. Scott and Katie and Luke met us in the morning then we went into the park. I have never been there before, so it was pretty cool. Here are a few pictures from the trip!The bison were walking on the street stopping the traffic! It was so crazy!
All of us at Old Faithful
Anthony and I at some random waterfall... at least its pretty! I think its Yellowstone River

Nexflix

So Anthony and I decided not to get cable this semester... instead we got
It's great! We both love it! Right now we are getting two DVD's at a time on a free two week trial and we can watch a lot of movies and tv shows online too! Anthony and I have always loved watching movies, and now it seems like there is an unlimited selection. If anyone wants to try the two week trail here is the link. http://www.netflix.com/FreeTrialInfo It really is free, just make sure you cancel it when the two weeks are up. They even tell you how to cancel it when you sign up.
On other news, my parents are coming out west this week. They flew in today and this week they are going to be down in Provo helping Scott and Katie with their lawn. This weekend a few of us(me and Anthony, my parents, Darcy, and Scott) are going to Yellowstone. I've never been there before, so I'm pretty excited for it.
Anthony signed up for his BYU online accounting class yesterday. So he is going to be taking BOTH accounting classes at the same time! But he has a whole year to finish the one online so its not that big of a deal.
I am still looking for a job... anyone got any ideas? Haha, just kidding.
It has been so cold here recently! Anthony and I finally broke down today and decided to turn on our heater. It has even been snowing! Not enough to make it really stick, but honestly Rexburg, its almost May! Haha.
Anyways, I need to get back to my homework. I have my first test this weekend, wish me luck! Peace Out!

Pictures to Come...

Hey Everyone!
I know it has been a LONG time since the last time I updated this... and A LOT has happened too! 
Anthony and I got MARRIED on Friday April 3! Yay! I haven't figured out how to put the pictures on here yet because they are really big files... but pictures are coming! 
We got back from our honeymoon the next Friday night we opened all of our presents :) 
Then we headed back to Rexburg on Monday morning... EARLY... like 4am early. But it was good because we made it here in two days! 
We moved into our apartment! It is so cute and little! But it is good because there is only two of us. And of course we had to live on the third floor farthest away from the entrance! Our complex is like a maze, lots of turns and stairs. But it makes things interesting, haha. (more information and pictures coming!) 
We started school today and Anthony started his job again at the testing center working as a secretary. I am in pursuit of looking for a job... big fun! hopefully I can find one soon! 
Well thats all for now. I will write more in detail when things start to slow down a bit! 
Much Love!

Finding a Home for a Car

This past week we have been shopping for a car. It has taken quite a bit of patience, but we finally got one! It is a white 2007 Chevrolet Malibu... the same car that Anthony had before the accident, but five years newer.
We found this car on ebay, and we bought it yesterday(Wednesday)! We are very happy with it and glad we could find it a good home!

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Countdown

16 days!
Its coming up pretty fast! Yay!

Obituary for Malibu

On March 9, 2009 our Chevy Malibu was laid to rest. It had been over a year now since I, Alison Brown, had first stepped into that precious vehicle. Anthony had been driving on highway 78 when an idiotic lady pulled out from a side street. She claims she was trying to beat the traffic, but Anthony hit her car. Luckily Anthony was not injured, just a little sore, but the car was a different story. It had been damaged on the front passenger side, the hood, the bumper, and maybe even the frame underneath. Both airbags were deployed and it was towed away Wednesday morning.


When the car was first purchased in 2002 it was used as a missionary car. Driven by young teen boys it was driven rough, but had been kept up very well. Only a short time after did Anthony's brother, Lawrence, buy it when he returned from his mission. Anthony bought the car from his brother about a year or so later and had treated it like his own ever since. We have went on many dates, and vacations with this car. It has made it across the country many times as Anthony has traveled to and from school. It has been good to us. We have shared some precious times with that car and it will be missed. 
It is sad saying goodbye to a car.

Two parts human....one part titatium.

Implants and Invitations

Thursday I took Anthony to the dentist again to get his 2nd implant. Well not another one, its the same tooth... Let me explain. The first time he got his implant something went wrong. The screw that was in his jaw (I know, disgusting) came loose... or at least I think this is what happened. So he went through a whole week of pain.... Poor guy! He went back to the dentist and the figured out what was wrong so they pulled it back out. He had to wait two more weeks for it to heal to get another implant. This time I was informed that there was no way he could mess this one up, it is really down in there. So keep your fingers crossed for him that all will go well! 
On other news, that same day my invitations came! So I left Anthony hoping that he would get some sleep while I was gone(and he did get a little nap), and went to pick them up from Party City. They turned out great! My mom and I have been stuffing them and addressing them all day... literally ALL day. Jeff and Carie and Anthony came over and helped us stuff them and get them all, well a big chunk of them, ready to mail off. Thanks you guys!

Holly! You said we could do a memory with you in it. This picture was taken the night before my mission. Pretty sure you must have been the photographer. Sorry you're not in it.

If my memory serves me correctly this was at the tennis court in your hood.

I know Ali already did one, but I thought you would enjoy the memory. haha!

Spice Girls

Our good friend, Holly, has posted a little contest on her blog. If we make a post of a favorite memory that we have with her (or something of the sort) then she will give us a homemade gift! So here is the memory....

Holly, Darcy, and I were what you would call Spice Girl fans. When we were 10ish or so the three of us made up a dance to go with one of the Spice Girl songs. We even invited our parents to attend our performance. They even video taped us! It was so much fun! Well, I thought that it was really cool cause I was hanging out with people who were older than me. Unfortunately, a few years ago Holly informed me that she got rid of that tape... which I am not very sad about ;) So I can't post it on here. 

This is a really cute idea Holly! I'm tempted to even do it myself...

Recent Happenings...

Here is an update on what has been going on recently. 

1. We finally finished our registry! We are registered at bed bath and beyond and target. It was fun picking out all our stuff for our little apartment and fighting over who gets to hold the scanner gun thing. Haha! 

2. We got the proof for our invitations and now just waiting for them to ship them! It should be within the week or beginning of next week. 

3. Valentines day was wonderful! I have the most amazing fiance... He made me a steak dinner and a delicious chocolate cake for dessert. He bought be some beautiful flowers and afterwards we went to a movie! It was a great day! Thank you Anthony! 

4. We went to another hockey game... and they lost... again. So then we went to a Hawks game to see them win... but they lost. It was still a lot of fun though. Oh and we got a couple of free Cokes.

5. Wedding, Wedding, Wedding. Most of our free time is spent in planning our wedding and reception. It's kindof a lot of work, but we are enjoying it.

Place The State

There is this game on the internet called "Place The State." I actually found it a couple of years ago when I was still in high school, but I recently found it again! Yay! It tests how well you know where the states are located on a map. It's maybe not the best test, but it gives you a general idea. I think it is interesting and pretty entertaining (and addictive, hehe). If your interested here is the link... 

How to play: Place the state by dragging and dropping. 
1. Place cursor over the state 
2. While pressing the left mouse button, drag the state to its correct location
3. Release the left mouse button

I got a 96% with a avg error of 5 miles

New Moon


When I was in Florida Darcy, Derek and I went to go see Twilight. It was great, I loved it! And I would recommend it for everyone. I will warn you though it is a girl movie, but I still think that guys would like it... well some guys. Anyways, I did some research on it today and I found out that the next movie, New Moon, will be coming out November 20, 2009! Yay!
