a day of thanks

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my loved ones and dear friends. As I woke up today, I couldn't help but think of the things in my life that I'm grateful for. I could seriously type all day about those things but I will just pick a few that seem to stick out in my mind today. First of all my husband. I honestly don't know where I would be without him. He is everything to me. I would spend every minute with him if I could, I don't think the feelings are mutual all the time however. He is such a good man, and I have been blessed to have him in my life.
The next thing would have to be our families. We have the best families ever. We are together all the time, we talk all the time, we work together, and we all just really get along very well. When you get married you hear of all those horror stories about the "in-laws", well I personally don't know what they are talking about, I have the best in-laws!
I just love this time of year, it's seems like you stop more often to think about the things in your life that your grateful for, family, friends, etc.. I'm looking forward to spending time with family and loved ones this upcoming holiday season, I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving, we should all give thanks, we are a very blessed people.

Halloween, Football, Go Jazz!

Wow, could this post be anymore random? I've been a little behind lately on the blogging scene as most of you have mentioned, so I'm trying to multi task. Well it's nice to be missed anyhow. Well let's start off with Halloween since that was first, we don't have kids so we didn't get to make the rounds, but we did carve pumpkins at the Stevenson's. I chose to do a spider on a web, mainly because that was all that was left because we were late, and Bryce did a driver hitting a golf ball, go figure! It was a big production put on by mom and dad Stevenson, as usual, games for the kids, a movie, a story, and of course way to much good food. Thanks for the fun!
Now onto the football segue. We got invited to go to the BYU vs UNLV game with our friends the Wolsey's, Ryan and Miriam. They treated us to a great game with great weather and phenomenal food. We were in the VIP section, of course, 50yrd line about 24 rows up, (don't be jealous Rob). And best of all, we got to go into the Legacy tent before the game, during half time, and eat and drink all the food we wanted, you name it and we probably had it! And to top it of the cougars won!!
And last but not least the one and only Utah professional sport, The Jazz, yeah! We got free tickets to that event as well, what can I say people really like us, they really really like us. We were about 19 rows up center court, way fun and of course they won as well. I think that Bryce and I are really good luck, everyone should give us tickets more often and we'll see what we can do! If anything this post states that you can have a lot of fun on a fixed income, as long as you know someone with money!!
