Jon and Katrina were married in May 2008. We live in Houston, TX. Katrina graduated from Utah State and plays the "SugaMama" role as Jon continues with his studies at U of H. We love getting lost and having all sorts of crazy adventures. Jon is nice and Katrina is honest. :) We are first time parents to Soren Idrios. He has bulldog cheeks! These are our stories.

Happy Birthday Katrina!!

Happy Birthday my dear. Yup, thats right yesterday the 19th of March was Katrina's Birthday. But everyone already know that. The day started out pretty crazy for Katrina having one of her professors calling her like mad while she was in another class. Then we met at 10:28 to go to her next class which so happened to be a wonderful lesson from D&C 76 on the Atonement of Jesus Christ. It was nice to start the day off on a spiritual high and it didn't end there. Next we went home to prepare to go to the temple. Katrina walked into her room to 11 balloons and two birthday cards and gift bags. (from her parents and myself) We heated up some tacos for lunch and then we were off to the temple. The temple has always been one of our favorite places to be at together. To have no worries and to be able to clear our minds.
After the temple we took a trip to Odgen to take care of the car. A trip anywhere is so nice when you are with the one you love and just being able to hold there hand. :) We came back and had dinner at Iron Gate. It was a nice place and once again as Katrina was getting her salad I told them that it was her birthday. They brought her a nice piece of rich cheesecake. It was so good! :) Anyway then we went back to her place and jumped on the computer to write some emails, but then notice that we got a special email and just had to look at it. It was a very good email to have sent to us. We finished our day together with working on the invitation, having cake and ice cream with her roommates, and then to top it off standing out in the rain saying good bye. Good bye never gets easier. Nope not at all. Love you sweetie!!!

We pretty much had the best Spring Break ever. It was a much needed break for Jon and myself. (even though I was sick and Jon is now sick) We had a great time! I had to work a couple of the days, but we still got to go to play at Priscila's birthday party. I met Jon's aunt Jana and more of his cousins and family. They are so nice to me. I am so excited to part of his family and get to know them better!

Let's see... Wedding stuff? The update is that my dress is done and at home! We have picked out invitations and are almost ready to order them. We are gathering everyone's address! :) On Thursday we got our engagement pictures taken! It was 3 hours long with Randy, but he is really great and we had a lot of fun!

Jon liked how much Randy asked us to kiss, and I quote, "Just ignore me (Randy) and make out like you are in a dark alley all by yourselves." Thanks Randy! These are my least favorite pictures, the kissy ones. Not because I don't love kissing Jon, it's just that they are so cheesy and gross! Who wants to see that! yuck. Anyway, we are anxious to see them this week.

Wednesday night I subjected Jon to my cooking again, sort of. We had chicken tacos at my house! He says that he's happy I want to cook for him and I do! It's fun, at least for now.
And I explained to Jon why Fiji bottled water is my favorite! (the square bottle was made for my little hands!)

I got to see my bestest girlfriend, Cami, on Sunday she just got home from her mission in Long Beach! It was great to see her and I'm happy Jon finally gets to meet some of my friends!

Then finally on Friday morning we left for Zions! YAH! It was a great drive away from all the snow. I can't say it was perfect weather, but well enough for hot tubbing and hiking!

My favorite was the night that Jon and I sat on the deck (I was freezing but wrapped in a sleeping bag) and talked about how we fell in love! It wasn't that long ago... but fun to remember.

My parents had their 34th wedding anniversary on the 15th. We went to dinner with them and talked about the best and worst decade by decade, 1974-2008. It was really great to hear their stories, we laughed and cried! And we all had candles on our dessert, except Jon. I loved dinner just as I love my parents so much!

We were also invited to a wonderful dinner at Jon's mom's house. It was an early Easter,but it was great! Pete is a great cook! And Julia helped make it a perfect evening! Thanks so much! Prisicila looked so cute in her Easter dress and Jon and I got 20 bucks! Yaywhoo! I was so sad to have to head back to Logan, but as Jon says, "one more time leaving is really one less time that I have to go."

All in all it was the perfect vacation apart from coming home in snowy weather and Jon's windshield wipers! I even saw Jon in the morning without his make-up on and horrible hair and still will marry him in May! Did I forget anything? Pictures maybe? Here ya go...

Good Bye February!

Yes, finally the month of February is over. What a blessing. We decided that Katrina needed a break from all the traveling back and forth from Logan and South Jordan, so I went to Logan this last weekend. I was planning to get there by the time she got off work on Saturday, but I just couldn't wait to see her. I woke up Saturday morning at 5:00 am got ready and drove to Logan. I know Katrina was planning on going to the temple that morning and I wanted to make sure I was there before she left to go. (Good thing she slept in) I called right before I was without any service on my phone, like 6:30 am, and asked her if I could go with her and to tell her that I would be in Logan in 30 minutes. She pretty much was surprised and HAPPY that I was almost there. The weekend was wonderful from spending time in the temple to Ice Skating to having some horchata (Hmmmmm Horchata, I love it) to watching a couple of movies to listening to Elder Bruce C Hafen to eating dinner with Katrina's friend Jake and his wife, Jackie Gadd. The weekend was great. Even with the weekend being so busy we were able to still look at invitations and kind of get a number of how many we would like to send out.

We are getting closer to having things ready for the two big days. To finding someone to take photos to setting a day to have the engagement pictures taken to picking the place for our honeymoon which is Acamo, Mexico (So excited to have our room be like 5 feet from the ocean) to even getting closer to picking out the cake. Which I'm excited to be the one who gets to try the cakes. :) There has been a lot happen from the last post, but our LOVE for one another is still growing stronger and stronger as each day goes by.
