My Website Is Taking Over My Life



This has been my life. I have had a really strong motivation to get my photography going. So, I started to slowly sift through all my pictures that I accidentally formatted. So, I don't really have any pictures for the rest of this week because I have been so busy on homework, and my website.... elegantlee.com

All Tuckered Out


Because of Tyler's new calling, he has to wake up at 5:30 on Sundays to be to his meetings on time. He comes home from church exhausted, but he still wants to be productive. I made him take a nap while I made dinner. I had to physically push him back down. Don't worry, I'm not and abusive wife. He smiled at me after and said thanks. He looked so cute sleeping on the couch I couldn't help but take a picture.
After his nap, Grant came over for Fajitas. Great Sunday!

Water




Oh my word. I am so not used to drinking a lot of water. Because I have been exercising and donating Plasma, I am trying to drink a lot of water. TMI: I have to go to the bathroom all the time. I was up like three times last night because I am not used to drinking so much water.

Picture from my camera coming later.

Planet Fitness


Tyler and I signed up for a Gym membership on Tuesday. Today was our first day to actually go. I am really excited to get into shape!! It feels good to go :) We are going to go for about an hour every other day. I was taking a picture while I was moving. Super blurry but that's what I've got!

Biscuit ... MMMmm


I am wanting to make more food in the crock pot to save time. Tonight I made chicken and wild rice soup. I read different recipes online, and then made up my own version. I made Delicious biscuits to go with it. They turned out perfect. They had the crumbly top, and flakey middle. I was so excited. Thank you Betty Crocker!

Plasma



So I decided that I wanted to have some more play money for dates, clothes, camera stuff, and other things. Being excessive wasn't part of our budget. I decided that I would donate plasma. I didn't want to get a job, and so this works out great.... and i'm not really scared of needles (I just can't watch.)

Paella



We ate at the beans tonight! So Gooood! They made paella, and another really yummy tuna-tomato salad. It was great spending time with them, and eating yummy food.

Sunday Sunday Sunday


At the concert on Friday, we ran into some of Tyler's friends from Oregon. After chatting with them we decided to get together and have dinner. We had really yummy roast and played cranium. It was fun getting to know new people, eat great food, and play some games.

- I forgot to take a picture, but this is the skirt I made a few weeks ago and wore to church today.

Cousin Pot Luck


We got together with most the cousins in our age group. We had chili and played
werewolf. It was fun seeing everyone and catching up with their lives. It was kinda hard to have much personal conversations with anyone because of how many people we had there. But, it was great seeing family.

Within 2 minutes of us leaving I realized that I forgot to take a picture! The picture above is a picture of Brooke, Nikki, and me when we all lived together.

MDT Date Night



Tyler and I had a wonderful date night tonight! So much fun. We had dinner with my family at this yummy restaurant in Springville. Then we went to the MDT concert on campus. It was really good. It made me want to learn how to sing better, and go see more musicals and such! Really fun night!

While we were at dinner with my family my niece, Libby, loved dipping her chips in the very hot Salsa. She would eat the chip, freak out because it was hot, start scratching her tongue, get a drink, and repeat. Love her! The picture is horrible quality but she's still cute!

Pop Rocks

Day 47:


Our friends, Kami and Scott got married today (good friends from our singles ward.) Tyler and I are happy them. Their first date was the night before our wedding, and now they are married. Crazy! They seemed very happy tonight though.
We went to their reception, which was a lot of fun. We were able to see a lot of our friends and catch up. We haven't seen some of them since our wedding, and we didn't really get a chance to talk with them then. So, it was nice to see everyone. I tried getting a picture with my phone but it was blurry.
After the reception we realized that we didn't have any milk, and so we headed to the grocery store. They have pop rocks on sale! I am still entertained by them. Kissing with pop rocks really isn't as cool as rumors say it is. Bummer.

Stupid Stairs



I had twenty minutes to print of my outline and get to class before my presentation. I had plenty of time. The print lab was three flights up but relatively close. I just needed to be speedy.
I made it up the first flight no problem but the second set of stairs were ready for me. As I quickly made my way up the stairs the tip of my toe caught the lip of the stair. My mind knew just what was coming. My face started plummeting towards the steps. Thank heavens I had taken my hands out of my pockets a few moments before. I caught myself just in time. However, the momentum of falling sent my backpack sliding up my back and above my head. I jumped up as fast as I could. My face was okay but my pride was shot. I looked around and there were two boys staring at me. Thankfully they tried to hide their laughter.
About ten minutes after printing my assignments and heading to class I realized I left my coat back at the computer and I had to go back...I took the elevator.

My Valentine

Day 45:



Tyler and I went to ward temple night for Valentines day this year. We are going to do a more romantic date this weekend. We haven't been to the temple this month and we figured this would be as good of a time as any. It was actually really cool.
We went to Timpanogas Temple. This is our temple, and it was fun being inside. The last time we were inside was for our wedding. I think we might make it a tradition to go to the temple for Valentines day and have a date a different day. Maybe we'll do sealings next year. It was cool being where we were when we got married.
Happy Valentines Day Tyler, I love you.

Ze Bus

Day 44:



Tyler takes the car once a week for his carpool and so I take the bus. I watched two different buses pass by today as I was walking to the different stops. I was always just one block behind. Joys.

2nd Counselor

Day 43:


Tyler got ordained a high priest today. He's been called to serve as the second counselor in our ward. He is going to do such a good job. His parents came down so Dad R. could do the ordination. It was really cool. My parents were there also. Grants brother was also there, he is taking the picture for us. It was cool to have Tyler's parents come. Tyler's dad just had surgery but he made the trek down from Oregon anyway.
I am proud of Tyler; he is a good man, and will do a great job in his calling.

French Pastries

Day 42:



Tyler's parent's came into town last night. They are staying the weekend with us. We were going to head to Heber to try and find a good pastry shop, but we ended up seeing a french bakery right here in town. Oh my we had some yummy desserts. Mom R. and I ran some errands, and cleaned Grants car. That evening we chatted, ate dinner, and watched Despicable Me. Great day all around!

- I haven't had a chance to get the picture up yet. So I put in a filler til I get it uploaded.

Glitter Girls Night

Day 41:

Tyler was throwing a bachelor party for his friend Scott tonight. So, I had a girls night with my girlfriends! Same crew as last time. We had pizza, sparkling cider, fruit roll-ups, brownies, and popcorn. We had so much fun, totally chill.
I brought the stuff for glitter toes. So, as we watched Gilmore Girls we did our toes. ha ha Amy spilled the glitter on accident and Jess doesn't own a vacuum. It was all over :/ I tried cleaning it as much as I could but I could only do so much. All the same. I was nice chillin with the girls.

Lasagna Love

Day 40:


I wanted to surprise Tyler with a fancy date night tonight. We both had plans for our friday night and had to skip out on our usual date night. I decided I would do something special for him today instead. I made his favorite (lasagna) for dinner, with apple juice, cheesy bread, green beans, and a lovely dessert.
I learned how to make this a couple years ago but forgot about it. Oh my heavens it's good. Check out my other blog for the recipe. Bake Beat and Blend! We ate half of the cake in the one sitting..Oops. I really need to start eating better.

Love To Read

Day 39:


Tyler and I went to the Library today. MMmm.. I love to read. I never let myself read though. I am way to impatient to enjoy the book through the process, and I want to know how it's going to end. This causes me to put off more important things so I can sit down and enjoy reading. I usually have a no reading during school rule but I thought I would try it out.
I got the book "The Widower's Tale." I don't really know anything about the book. To be honest I liked the cover and thought I would try it out. I'll let you know!

Accounting accounts


Day 38:


I took my accounting test today. I got an 86% Woohoo! I love school when I am doing well and have time to learn! The average on the test was a 71. I'm happy about. We went over the questions in class later and 4 of the questions were stupid vocab questions that I totally knew, I just got them mixed up. Lame.
Tyler took my J-Dawgs to celebrate being done with tests for a little bit. So yummy! We also went and visited my family! Good day.

-and yes this picture has nothing to do with my day but I didn't have any pictures to take-

Pin Board

Day 37:




I have been wanting to find a place to put pictures of the family but I didn't like my ugly cork board. So, I bought some cute fabric, wrapped it around the board and put the frame back on. Once that was put back together I threaded the blue ribbon through. I actually really like it! It's up in our office.

Sunday Rooster

Day 36:



For our wedding my aunt gave us this rooster. It's a casserole dish thing that has a rooster lid to keep it warm. I finally used it tonight. We finally had a chance to have Garyn and Jill over for dinner. We also had Grant over too! I made my very first pot roast with homemade gravy, potatoes, and cooked carrots. It was great spending time with Garyn and Jill. We played games and had fun catching up. (I forgot to take their pictures before they left :( ...)

Cute Lil Guy

Day 35:



This is my adorable nephew Josh...Remember him? Kenny and Jamile had an emergency need for a babysitter, and I got the chance to play with Josh for an hour and a half. I took advantage of the opportunity to take some fun pictures. I had the hardest time picking just one picture. I'm putting all the other ones on facebook.

Tumbling Blocks

Day 34:



We had the Lee's over for date night tonight. We ate the same sandwiches we had last night and played tumbling blocks. Whenever the block would fall Josh's mouth would "O" After we were playing josh kept trying to pull the blocks up onto his lap.

Bake Beat and Blend

Day 34:


This picture is kinda a cop-out of a picture but it's the only thing that I did that was worth taking. We made these yummy easy sandwiches. Me and my roommie from Utah State created a recipe swapping blog. Bake Beat and Blend. Love it! Check it out!

Champion

Day 32:



I took my business law test to day and totally rocked it. Happy dance! I missed a few but with the extra credit I got 100% So excited... I didn't have my camera today at school, but the lighting was really pretty at school, I had to take this picture with my phone. This building is where I spent the majority of my life in my old major.
