About winning this beautiful giveaway. :]

Race laughs at me for always entering into these things but I promise...someday I WILL win one!
I am so far behind with this. But don't worry, I'm still taking pictures. :)

January 20, 2011 Race and I have been living off of these delicious bagel sandwiches for a couple weeks now. Cream cheese, tomato, avocado, and meat on a bagel....can it get any better? I think not. Also Race made me be in this picture cause he said I'm not in enough of them. Haha.

January 21, 2011
This is a book Race finished. I'll have to let him say more about this. I just know he finished this book on this day. And he liked it. :)

January 22, 2011 We should have had cooler pictures for this day since we tried to go ice skating and bowling with Nick and Ellie but both places were completely full! So instead we came home and just admired the sunset.

January 23, 2011 This is a Sunday picture. We had to give talks. :-/ So this is us after church being super relieved to have that behind us. In our new ward they usually only have two adult speakers so we had to fill up ALL the time after the sacrament! It was intimidating. We did it though. :) Race missed the first half of my talk because he was trying to stop his cut that he got from shaving from bleeding. He heard it plenty of times when I was preparing the night before though.

January 24, 2011 This is one of the triplets and I. :) I put some gel in her hair so her curls would show up more. Isn't she just so cute?!

Well, that's all for now. I'll play some more catch up later!

Jack and Anna, two of Race's cousins were in town visiting Nick and Ellie (Ellie is their big sister).
Their parents drove through on their way back from somewhere to pick them up and to celebrate Jack's birthday. :] So we got to be a part of that. Jack is super funny and watching him and Race interact is quite amusing. Jack turns Race into a little kid. And it lasts for quite a while even after Jack is gone. Haha.

Race and I matched for church! We did this last week also but forgot to take a picture. :[ And I know that this picture sucks but it's the only semi-decent one we had. Also, I hate that there are cords ALL over the ground...does anyone have smart solutions on how to hide ugly cords? Also, Sunday night...after midnight of course...I did some MAJOR cleaning while Race watched some weird documentaries on Netflix. I completely organized under our guest room bed where we had been stashing random junk since we moved in. And then I took everything out of the bathroom cupboards, cleaned them, reorganized everything and then deep cleaned the ENTIRE bathroom! Let's just say I was up late. But, I was very pleased with the outcome. :] And I got to sleep in the next day because school didn't start til Tuesday!!
 January 17, 2011
Race and I slept in for most of the day on Monday since we were up so late the night before. So, on Monday I worked from three to eight and when I got home I updated my iPhone. So that's what this is a picture of. It took FOREVER to update but it was definitely worth it! The new update made it so that you can have folders for your stuff. This is nice because it made it so that I have almost EVERYTHING on one page (It used to be five or six pages long..)! Also, it made it so that I can have a picture in my background. So that's really nice too. I haven't found a super good one yet but I will!

First day of school!
I had to work at 6:30 am until about 8:30 but then I came home and was up and able to make Race a quick breakfast before he headed out to work before his first day of classes. And after making breakfast I was able to catch a quick nap before I had to go to my classes. So far school is pretty good. I like all of my classes and my teachers all seem super cool. I am actually kind of excited for this semester! Anyway, this is just a picture of the pancakes that I made for Race. They burned though. :[ And I think they look kinda gross SUPER drenched in syrup but that's the way Race likes them so it works. :]
January 19, 2011
A bed picture again. Race is just lying next to me reading while I type all this up. But he very nicely looked over for a picture since I didn't have one for today yet...Oh well! He looks good! He deserves his own photo on here every once in a while. :] Isn't he daaaaang good looking?! I think so!
Well, that's all for now. The weekend is ALMOST here so hopefully we will do something a little more exciting and take pictures of it. Oh! We are speaking in sacrament meeting this weekend...ah! But there won't be pictures of that. Maybe of something related to that though...who knows! Anyway, goodnight!

These are not the most exciting pictures and you might think that they were last pictures like some of the other ones that look like this but they are not!
 January 13, 2011
This first picture is of our living room WITHOUT the Christmas tree! If you noticed in the last picture of our living room from just a couple of days ago our Christmas tree was still there. When I came home from work on Thursday the tree was gone, the room was clean, and Race had set up our bookshelf that his mom had given us. It made our room look so much bigger and sooo clean! Race didn't think I was very surprised or grateful but I was. We had made a deal that if he took the tree out of the house then I would do all the cleaning up in the house. He did both! And he said that the clean up took FOREVER! Especially because our vacuum cleaner hasn't been suctioning very well lately. Anyway, I love having our space back!
January 14, 2011
This is a picture of Christ with "The Living Christ" on top of it. Our sister Amber Ashby made it for us for Christmas and we FINALLY got it hung up in our apartment. :] It is right in the middle of our living room and I love it. I'm glad to have this reminder up in our home to follow Christ's example. On a side note, I hung up this picture all by myself. I originally asked for Race's help but I ended up doing it on my own and I think that he was a little sad since he is usually the one to do all the picture/decorations hanging.

P.S. We hit the two week mark! I've heard that this is when people quit their picture-a-day thing but so far so good!

Almost Forgetting

So I found out why you are supposed to put up the pictures every couple of days. It's because it is so hard to remember which picture is from which day. I think I have it figured out though so here goes some catching up!

 January 9, 2011
So I have been having a really hard time remembering to take pictures every day until late at night. So this first picture is a boring one of our living room. The picture shows that we moved our futon back a few feet. We did this so we could play the move without having to sit on the couch or be super backed up against it. We also played games with our family that night and it was nice to have more room in the living room instead of lots of useless room in the kitchen. Haha.
 January 10, 2011
Another day where I forgot to take a picture til bedtime. Obviously we were in bed when we remembered to take a picture. So here's a picture of Race and I cuddling up in bed. Also,we were hiding zits with the blanket. Haha.
 January 11, 2011
Here is a picture of Race and I playing Rook. This may be my new favorite game to play with Race. It is also one of his family's favorite games so it's about time that I learned how to play. I really enjoy playing two player but I am still a little scared to play with his family because they are SUPER INTENSE when they play. I'll be as intense eventually though. :] Also, this night I got really frustrated because it was another  night where I forgot to take a picture til we were in bed. Race recognized how upset I was and went and grabbed the Rook cards and did a full out photoshoot (I might put up more pictures another time). Anyway, it was really sweet of him and we played a couple rounds afterwords which was fun. It was a good way to end the night. Also, we are finding out they we are pretty big gamers. The past couple of weeks we have played Rook, Yahtzee, Apples to Apples, Scum, and a few other games with Teal (Race's sister), Ellie (Race's cousin), and Nick (Ellie's husband). It's lots of fun to play games. We just need to get some more so we can have lots of variety.
January 12, 2011
Finally, here is todays picture. When I got home from work tonight Race was still cleaning so I decided to play on our Play Station Move. So I played some archery, table tennis, and gladiator games before I decided to try Zumba for the first time. I tried it and I loved it! It was really fun and a good workout. It's not quite as good as a legit Zumba class but it is really really fun still and it still gets your heart pumping. So it will be my new favorite workout. I just need to get Race to do it with me!

Well, that's all for now. I hope to update more often so I don't get confused. And hopefully I will remember to take pictures before bedtime more often so they aren't too boring. If not I guess pictures of Race and I cuddling in bed aren't so bad because we sure do like to cuddle. :]


January 8, 2011 Race and I got matching plaid shirts on sale from Target the night before so we wore them all day Saturday as we caught up on six loads of laundry and then went to Ruby Tuesdays for a DELICIOUS dinner. :) I know it's super cheesy but I looove matching. I love to match with my sisters every Sunday I go home to visit and I love color coordinating with Race. (We really don't do it THAT much though. :) ) Anyway, there's our picture from Saturday. There are more to come I just have to get onto my computer for those pictures. So stay tuned!

Race and I didn't take a picture of anything that we did yesterday but I took lots of pictures of the babies being cute in the bathtub. This is just two of the three cuties. The babies got shots yesterday and weren't feeling good so we gave them a bath and it was the first time all day that htey were really happy. Bathtime is also the only time that we can seem to get really cute pictures of all three of them. It was a good part of my workday yesterday.
January 7, 2011
After work today Race and I decided to have a legit date. So we drew each other. As you can tell we are NOT artists but it was fun to stare at each other for a while. :] And then I did some of my own doodles to finish off our little drawing date. We also went to Target tonight to get a sketchpad and came home with a TON of clothes instead (they had an AWESOME sale....) Anyway, it was a great date night. I love being able to spend time with Race!

Here are some more pictures:

Race with his drawing of me:
Me with my drawing of Race:

 And finally, us kissing because we did such wonderful drawings of each other. (Haha that's not why!)
 Oh wait, a normal picture also. (Check out my awesome earrings!! $1.50 at Forever21)

Day5{Don't Judge Us}

January 5, 2011 
So Race and I are not the best at doing dishes as you can tell. I didn't want to put up this picture because it is embarrassing how messy our kitchen counter area was but it is what we spent quite a bit of our evening doing yesterday so it had to be the picture of the day. Haha. So don't judge us, we don't do dishes nearly enough. There is a second picture for the 5th though because I had to show you what all the hard work cleaning all of that turned into. So below is a picture of how much better it looked after we washed dishes and reorganized all of our cupboards to fit all of the new stuff we got. :]
Much better, eh?

Tuesday, January 4, 2011


So I'm really  not sure how interesting this thing will be for might just make everyone realize that Race and I lead pretty boring lives {I think that's what I'm getting out of it. And I'm only four days into it}. Either that or we are just never together so some of this stuff will only be about one of us. I could post pictures of the triplets I watch every day because they are always doing something cute but that doesn't really have anything to do with Race and I. Oh well I guess. So anyway, for today I am going to put up a picture of how I find Race every day when I get off of work.
January 4, 2011
This is Race finishing up some Assassins Creed video gaming. Of all his video games I think this is the one I approve of the most. It's somewhat historically based and actually somewhat interesting to hear about. (Hopefully he doesn't start talking to me WAAAY more about it just because I wrote that though :]) Anyway, although I don't like video games at all I have to learn to deal with it and make some compromises because until life gets even busier I am sure that Race will want to have video games be a way for him to relax from the stress of work and school and being married to a crazy lady like me. :]
So here is my sweet husband rushing his butt to finish some stuff up on his game so he can spend the rest of the night with me!


This is pretty self explanatory...Race and I are going to try and take a photo every day for the next year to document our life and our marriage over the next twelve months. I believe this is normally a thing for photographers to do to help them get better with their photography and stuff but we decided it would be a fun thing to do so that we can look back and remember all that we have done over the year. Our pictures will probably not be exciting or fancy or anything but we are excited for this little adventure and we are excited to share it with all of you. Most of the pictures will probably be from our phones so they won't be great quality but that's not the point. So, here are our pictures for January 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. We will try and post regularly and add a little tidbit about what the photos are about or what they mean to us. ENJOY!!
January 1, 2011 This was our New Years Kiss in the middle of the Jimmy Eat World concert. This was our first concert together and it was to one of the only bands we both REALLY like. :]
January 2, 2011 This was on the second when I was trying to figure out what glasses to buy online. They let you print out glasses the size of the ones online and I was trying to see what they would look like. (These are not the ones I got. I ended up buying kids ones 'cause adult glasses are HUGE on my face).
This is the inside of the jewelry box Race got me for Christmas. I never would have thought that I wanted a jewelry box but I absolutely LOVED filling it up. I fell like such a grown up lady! It might be my favorite Christmas gift...

That's all for now. More to come in the next 362 days.
