Happy Anniversary to us!

Dustin and I have been married now for one year officially! Here's a synopsis of our first, wonderful year together! :) :)

December 07: We were married in the Boise Idaho Temple!! It was a wonderful day and we were so excited to finally be husband and wife! We stayed in the anniversary Inn for the first night then hopped on a plane to Acapulco!! :) We still talk about how we miss Acapulco and how fun it was for us! We both moved in to Dustin's apartment and kicked Devan out :)

January 08: We traded my Honda CRV in for our first car together! A little Saturn Ion, was very fun! We saw our nephew Vincent be born (well Dustin did!)
We also got our first and last pet together. He was a baby ferret named Cubby. Sadly, he was already sick when we got him, and when his condition worsened, we took him to the vet and decided the most humane thing to do was to put him down. It was really sad and caused me some heartache, but we decided after that that we won't ever own a pet again!

February 08: We celebrated Valentine's Day together :)

March 08: Dustin home for one year from Peru! Woo hoo! We went on our first road trip as a married couple, to Utah. We visited Jenny and had some fun :).

April 08: We went on a special date together and celebrated our first Easter as a couple!

May 08: Devan and Mom and Dad Wright went on their missions! Dustin and I moved in to their home to take care of it for them! Dustin got a new job!

June 08: We went to Cancun Mexico on a wonderful church history trip and had a ton of fun! Lyndsey turned 22! Woo hoo :)

July 08: We celebrated 4th of July relaxing and making a gourmet meal!

August 08: We took several trips in this month! Bear Lake for family reunions and more!

September 08: Lyndsey started Weight Watchers :) We had a lot of visitors from out of town stay with us!

October 08: Dustin turned 23! We had a great Halloween and Lyndsey also hit the one year mark working for Kidlink! Lots of fun!!

November 08: We celebrated Thanksgiving with Lyndsey's family and found out we were pregnant, shortly after losing it :( We will probably hold off before trying again due to some things we want to accomplish beforehand now! We celebrated 5 years together!

December 08: We've hit one year! Yay! Christmas, here we come! Lyndsey's still on weight watchers, working through a plateau ;)

So that's a quick synopsis of our year together. The details haven't been filled in but there you have it!!!!! :-D

We hope that 2009 brings all of you joy and that you can fulfill your dreams!

Our 'Children'

So I went on to this site by accident almost, it's a site that combines your facial features in pictures and makes your 'child'. Hahahahaha. :) Here are a few results, enjoy ;)

Well, she's a sweet spirit, ok?

Our 'daughter' haha

This one looks a lot like Dustin when he was a kid, crazy!

I think the little boy might just be the cutest! :)

For those that knew...

...That we were pregnant, we just found out it's not a viable pregnancy and we will be miscarrying. I am sad, but here's hope for the future. Love you all.

Dogs on Camera

After laughing our butts off in an attempt to take pictures of the dogs, we thought we'd share some of them. It was a lame attempt to get pictures of them, and they were fighting it the whole time. Dustin had to resort to the 'venus fly trap hold' and I had to offer up treats. But we got some...haha :)

Update on our Lives!!

Hello everyone! I just wanted to update you all on what Dustin and I have been up to and such!

Right now Dustin is out of town at a wedding in Idaho Falls. I had to work so I couldn't go, sadly. This holiday season we are planning on more or less relaxing and enjoying it with mostly my side of the family since Dustin's parents aren't in town, and so for Thanksgiving we will be going to their new house out in Kuna and celebrating there. I am going to make my mother in law's famous rolls to contribute :) I will also have a nice long weekend away from work which will be oh so nice! For those still wondering I am still on Weight Watchers and I have lost 25 lbs! I achieved my first 10% goal which was just amazing for me and I am super excited about it. It's slow and steady weight loss but I really like it and I am enjoying learning to eat right!

Dustin is doing well, busy as ever. He is so wonderful to me! Our first anniversary is coming up December 13th, so we will have been married a year!! Wow :) We plan on staying at the Anniversary Inn and going to Melting Pot for dinner. It should be an awesome weekend! :) We stayed there for the first night of our honeymoon last year and I highly recommend it! It was wonderful!

Hope you are all doing well!

Happy Halloween!!

We've had a splendid time with the spooky holiday so far!! We were originally gonna be the ogre couple from Shrek but we couldn't find the costumes and it was sad! That would have been cute, just didn't work out! :)

I was an angel, haha, so far from the truth ;) But I have been an angel on my new eating plan, I've lost 20 lbs :) We both just went out and bought our costumes, but it was fun to try and deliberate on what we would be.


Dustin was the prince of darkness himself! Kinda creepy isn't it?! We spent a long time trying to paint his face, starting with many failed attempts on my part which made him look like a creepy raccoon before my sister stepped in and helped!!


So we thought it was kind of cute, and plus Dustin just loved the fact that he was the devil, he just had the best time being Satan, haha. At the Halloween party we went to, he just the life of the party, had devil jokes here and there, it was really funny!


Ofcourse, I had to be careful, being the angel and never know when the devil might turn on you!! :-D


At the party we went to at my best pal Say Jay's house, we had a lot of fun doing matrix and everyone fighting off the devil, haha. I won't post any of mine, as I never have been athletic and most of mine looked more like a chicken flapping around than a cool matrix fight!! :)


Everyone couldn't believe how good of facial expressions Dustin made during this little act! He was hilarious, and everyone was laughing hysterically! My friend Say Jay was Pippy Longstocking! Cute huh? Well actually she looks dead here but her costume was extremely cute!!

He was quite the lady killer ;) hahaha Pun intended, I crack myself up. Okay, not really :)


So I hope you enjoyed our disturbing Halloween pictures, I LOVE Halloween and I am always so excited to dress up. I start thinking about Halloween in June or July!! :)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!! Have a very spooky week and weekend ;)

Here are some pictures of our trip this past weekend to Sun Valley!! We had a great time! By the way, I've lost 15 lbs now on Weight Watchers. Any way, so here are the pictures and we are so happy we went, it was a blast!!!

The first picture we took when we got there to our little motel! We stay in one at Hailey called the Hitchrack and it's so fun!

This is from our breakfast, which we had at the Rustic Moose, it was delicious!!


Twin Falls (from August!)

So this was our trip was back in August, and here are the pictures!!! Oh, and this was before I started losing weight too, hehe :) We decided to randomly just go to get away for the weekend. It was so much fun, and we did so much more than is in these pictures, but here's a piece!! :)

Dustin in front of our hotel, it was soo nice!!

Me standing in front of Ameritel, where I worked for a year! My first time staying in one!

I loved the beds! Didn't want to get out of them!!

And Dustin...well, he loved the TV!! :) A little too much! haha, jk

We were so happy to have such a nice room, we were just giddy :)

The next day we took a stroll around the new Twin Falls Temple, it was beautiful.

We visited Malad Gorge but before hand we just *had* to take pictures of the signs, haha :)

The gorge was beautiful and it was a gorgeous day! We also got to see about 5 people cliff dive, it about scared us to death!!

We thought it would be fun to check out the town fair, so we did!!

We took a picture with a turtle, haha!

No Pictures this time but updates :)

First off, we are doing very well!! Dustin right now is in Utah at his mission reunion. I couldn't go because of work. He is doing very well and will be turning 23 on the 7th! 3 days, WOW! For those who knew I was on Weight Watchers you would be proud to know I'm still on it, have been for a month! I have lost 10 lbs thus far, yay :) That's just a little about what we are up to!
Also, we get to go to Sun Valley this year for Dustin's birthday, it's going to be awesome! :)

I have bangs now :)

I got a new hairstyle from Jenny!! She did an amazing job. I get compliments on the color and my new bangs all the time :) I didn't want to cut it yet, as putting it in a pony and going is just too tempting but I wanted an updated look and I got it! Bangs are becoming more and more popular so I feel a bit more trendy now! :-P Hope you like my tan too, haha. It's a natural tan from being out in the sun and playing with kids! Now just to lose weight ;)

Our Fun Little Scrapbook


So, because Ace (the dog) is sick and I had a few errands to run, I opted to stay home for the family reunion. So Dustin is representing the family and I am being a little housewife.

I just wanted to share with my ladies this site in case you didn't know It's totally fun to do and super easy!

Hope you like the new look of our blog! I keep getting better and better at changing it, yay :)

Just a few memories!

I was going through some old pictures that I had and found some of these fun missionary pictures that I had, so I thought it would be fun to show everyone what I looked like before and during the mission.

Here I was with Mom and Dad getting ready to go to the Olive Garden just before entering the MTC

Hard to believe that thelittle guy that Jenny is holding is Bodie, but it was a long time ago! : )

This was us at Olive Garden having a little bite to eat before I entered the MTC. (I don't remember eating anything I was so nervous.) : )

Here we are at the MTC where you get the name tags.

Mom doing the honors.

Devan and I getting ready with all my bags to enter in.

This was right after I had just finished going through the Boise Idaho Temple. What a great experience that was.

Me and my buddie Chris Hayes waiting for our food to come in a restaurant in Peru.

Our Zone had just finished a service project together and thought we'd take a picture of ourselves. We liked making shirts for our zones, and this one said "The Best Two Years!" And was it ever.

I look really skinny here, but this is me and my companion Carlos Casupa with President Lindstrom and his wife! Great people.

This was so much fun to do and to look at. I hope that you enjoy it too!!!!!!!

We're Busy Busy Busy!

Hey everyone! So my cute hubby has been making so many posts lately, I thought I'd update real quick on what we are doing, so you can see I have an honest reason to be a bit behind on posting our recent Bear Lake trip pictures :)

Last weekend, we went to Bear Lake for the Peterson reunion. It was a lot of fun and we swam in the ocean, buried people in the sand (yes I got buried), and got to spend the night at Aunt Debbie's beach house! I told Dustin I wish I lived there, it's so beautiful, but he just laughed, saying I would get bored very quickly. I guess I MIGHT miss shopping, maybe that's it ;)

This weekend, we are having Kassie and Jenny and their kids in town! It will be fun! We are going to watch the kids (all 4 of them, yay) while the girls attend a wedding. Also, this Friday I am going with my class to the petting zoo at the fair. Try watching 20 3 year olds :) Yeah fun! :)

NEXT weekend, we are headed back to Bear Lake for the Wright reunion. We are staying at Grandma Doman's house. We will be there just for the weekend. I am hoping we will swim in the lake again, it was a lot of fun.

Ok, then flash forward a few more weekends and we have the Wright kids reunion!! We are staying in a big 8000 sq ft house with all the Wright kids and their kids! We are the only couple without kids (yet)! Insane! :)

So that's what we're up to lately. After this stretch of trips, we're gonna be pinching pennies for a while. That's okay though, we're happy to have the opportunity to travel so much!

We will post our Bear Lake pics soon, but if you want to see some of the hillarious ones of Dustin, check out Katie and Juan's blog...hahaha....:)

Our New Calling!

We have a new nursery class! This is Lyndsey blowing bubbles with the kiddos!
"Did YOU eat my bubbles?!"
This little guy wouldn't let Dustin go!
We're special

Who's tough now!

This last weekend Andrew and I decided that it would be fun to go shooting. We got as many guns as we could, ammo, and some snacks that Lyndsey packed for us. We thought it would be best to beat the heat and go a little earlier in the morning. Lyndsey made us egg sandwiches that were really tasty, and a bag of apricots to keep our energy up! : ) Then off we went.
Andrew driving to our destination, what a smile.
Do you feel lucky punk? ya? : )
We got a little hot, so we steadied our shot by sitting in the back of Andrew's 4Runner

We were trying so hard to get a good picture............I cant get passed the fact that I am balding! : )
Nothin like a silencer........barely makes a sound. We didnt have much to shoot at, just a for sale sign and some shinny metal!

Me trying to be tough
Andrew loading his guns
As we were leaving to go home we passed a bunch of army tanks and some soldiers marching. It made us feel so cool to see that. Proud to be Americans
