Friday, October 1, 2010


For the past 2 1/2 months fridays weren't really that big a deal to me seeing as how I was playing stay @ home mama during that time- so everyday was like the weekend.. really. Well, now I've been hit with a slap in the face of reality and have re-entered the working world and have never been more excited for a FRIDAY!! My plans this weekend are to snuggle with my gorgeous baby boy, spoil him rotten, clean my house from top to bottom, and maybe make some sugar cookies for the hubs :) I am sooo looking forward to it! And to top it all off... It's the first day of October and I freakin' love October!! So have a great weekend everyone- I know I will.

Here are a few pics of my little man that my good friend Amanda took when Graysen was 6 weeks... Keep in mind he's 11 weeks now. Ya, I know- I'm a slacker! HAPPY FRIDAY!!

If I was a season, I'd be summer

If I was a piece of furniture, I'd be a bed

If I was a country, Id be Italy

If I was a food, I'd be a cupcake

If I was a flower, I'd be a peonie

If I was a song, I couldn't pick just one

If I was an instrument, I'd be a piano

If I was a color, I'd be pink

If I was a letter, I'd be a love letter

If I was a book, I'd be The Notebook

If I was a time of day, I'd be sunset

If I was a drink, I'd be a riesling wine

If I was a holiday, I'd be Valentines Day

If I was a store, it would be full of vintage goodies

If I was a word, I'd be intoxicating

If I was a person, I'd be me

If I could know the future, I'd refuse to let it define me

If you could be anything, what would you be?

Weeeekend :)

Justin and I decided that our kitchen can get a little boring- so we made a goal to try at least one new recipe a week. And what a better time to cook than on a BEAUTIFUL weekend like the one we just had :) This weeks choice was homeade chicken cordon bleu from Rachel Ray. I cant say that I'm the best cook in the world but... I must admit it turned out yummy!

And we also enjoyed a sunday 4 wheeler ride with these lil' cuties! I just love them :)

The weather was perfect... Happy Spring!!

Spring has Sprung!!

So I think it's safe to say that Spring is here... Finally! I couldn't help but notice how warm the inside of my car was when I went to lunch- It almost felt HOT! These are the kind of days that make a full time working girl wish she wasn't a full time working girl! It makes me want to just be outside, laying on my grass while eating a popsicle and playing with mia :) The best part about it is.. the weekend is suppose to be even better. I hope you're all as excited as I am- and soak up as much sun as you can. Happy Friday- ENJOY!! xoxo

Us in Mile High City

So I'm a little late at blogging... What can I say?? I suck at it! Anyways... I managed to steal my husband away for a weekend (which doesn't happen very often lately) but I had to bribe him with a Dallas game of course ;)... So off to Denver we went!

Bowling @ Lucky Strike Lanes... Justin won.. Of course!! And Sam lost...
we teased him about it all weekend! You'll get 'em next time! ha..ha...

On Saturday we met up with one of my besties Maurie and her husband Jordan. We all went out to Dave and Busters.. It's like an arcade for adults ;) we had a lot of fun playing games and eating yummy food ;)

Then Sunday was GAME TIME!!! I have to give Denver it's props on the stadium cause it was insane. And their fans are outta control. It was a riot and we really had a good time other than Dallas lost. BOO Broncos!!! And this is is the second Dallas game we've been to and this is the 2nd loss we've witnessed LIVE(both away from home). So we decided next time we go... we're going to see them play on their own turf!! (Texas 2010?? Maybe ;)!!)

Fallin' for Fall

FALL is in the air and I must admit that I'm a little excited!!
I can't wait for the leaves to change color,
the air to turn crisp,
and must we not forget HALLOWEEN!!
Fall is fantastic and I can't freakin' wait... sigh!
What do you love about FALL or do you not love it at all?!?
Happy Friday Everyone...
Hope it's nothing less than lovely ;)

These three chicas went to VEGAS and had a much needed good time

My 75 year old Grandpa played a round of golf with all the Grandkids and needless to say he kicked all of our asses!!
We went camping!

And I went home with a big fat grin on my face because I have BONCOS bragging rights and $60 more in my pocket!

Ahh... Life is Good! :)

Goodbye for Now!

Hey Guys! Man it's been awhile... sorry!! :) Life has been a lil busy lately. Anyways, so I have debated and debated over doing this post because I didn't know if I wanted to expose my weakness to all of you like this, but then I thought the more people who know I am trying... might make me want to try a little harder so here goes.. I am giving up sugar. Yep! You read that right.. I'm over it! Why you ask?? Because I have an addiction to the stuff that is gettin' a little out of control and I just decided that me and sugar are going to part ways for a while.. 30 days to be exact! One month, starting TODAY! I just want to see if I can do it and see how my body will react to it. I think I am more curious than anything else and hey it wouldn't hurt to drop a few lbs. either :). Justin thinks I am crazy because I am such a sweet tooth.. he thinks if I go without it I might go insane or something and HEY... he might be right because me without sugar is kinda like Justin without a derby car.. just not LOGICAL! lol :) But.. I want to prove him wrong and challenge myself. So, wish me luck!! For the next 30 days..

No more of this

And a lot more of this!! :)

Happy Monday!! xoxo Taya

10 things you probably didn't know about Me!

Here are the rules:List 10 honest things about yourself--and make it interesting--even if you have to dig deep. Then pass this tag onto 7 other bloggers. And yes Cath.. this was hard!

1- I am addicted to Bubblegum. But here is the weird thing.. I only chew it for about 2 minutes until the flavor is gone and then I spit it out and pop in another piece.. I think I could chew 40 pieces a day if I let myself. :)

2-I cheated on every boyfriend I ever had.. except for Justin. Horrible and mean I know. But, I guess that's how I knew Justin was the one.

3-I love going shopping by MYSELF. Weird, I'll admit!! But then you don't have to deal with going into stores you don't want to, worrying about finding the same thing as your friend and then trying to figure out who gets to buy it etc; I'd rather just not deal with the headache.

4-I am a very opinionated and out-spoken person. I HATE people that are fake to your face and are not themselves. Just be who YOU are and live YOUR life. That's all :)

5-I secretly wish I was a BROADWAY star. I sing around the house, in the shower, in the car... you name it. And no.. It's not TOP 40 that I'm belting out.. It's showtunes baby. Justin thinks I am crazy.

6- I never pictured myself ending up in Sanpete, marrying a COUNTRY boy at the age of 20 who is obsessed with DERBY cars and his idea of dressing up is a T-shirt and his Dallas hat! But... I am SOOOOO happy that I did.

7-I am kind of with Lindsay on this one.. I am addicted to sweets! Justin tells me he doesn't know how one person can consume so much sugar... Some days I don't even think anything remotely nutritious makes it into my mouth.. Im too busy stuffing it with chocolate, licorice, Ice cream.. you name it.. I've usually had it within the last 24 hours.

8- I had a small trace of cervical cancer, went to the doctor a million times, got rid of it, been fine ever since!! :)

9- Somedays I wish my adorable 4 year old niece was mine.. and other days I'm glad she's not.

10- Last but not least... the reason I don't blog very much is because this post took me about 45 minutes and there wasn't even any pictures involved! I'm so slow at this and I guess a little lazy!!

Now I tag: Nicky, Nikki, Amanda Hall, Maurie, Julie and anyone else that hasn't been tagged. This makes for some interesting reading xoxo- Taya-

3-Hamburgers-with cheese he.hee :)
5-Hot weather
6-Hip-Hop music
8-Hot Dogs
10-Hilary Clinton

Well there ya have it! Now I tag Nicky with the letter L and Amanda Hall with the letter D! Good Luck :)

Let's Play Catch Up!!!

So I know that I have been horrible and haven't blogged FOREVER! I guess all I can say is that my life is not that exciting... Justin and I have just been really busy with work and haven't had time for much else. However, we have managed to have somewhat of a social life during the last little while and here's what our busy selves have been up to!

Well first of all... I cut my hair! It is soooo short!! But what can I say, I am my moms guinea pig and it was time for a change! :)

Last weekend my family and some friends went sleigh riding up to the power plant. It was a lot of fun. The snow wasn't as packed as it usually is because well... there hasn't been any snow! But we had a good time anyways, just hanging out, enjoying the snow, and bbq hotdogs! YUM!!

Yes, that is my 75 year old Grandpa on a sleigh! I about died.. hee.he :) I couldn't believe he actually did it.
BreiLynn and Braiden playing in the snowAlex didn't know what to think of the snow, but when we put him on the sleigh.. he loved every minute of it and didn't want to get off!!

The Night of the Roll-offs! This month Boncos was at Todd and Cathy's house. She was a great hostess and we had a great time as always. We had yummy taco soup, birthday/wedding cake that was to die for, and lots of laughs.. :) Thanks Todd and Cathy! I cannot wait until next time..

Ster and Amy rolling off for Most Wins!

Here are the Winners: Amy had most wins (after a roll off with Ster), Todd won most Boncos (after another roll off with Greg and Karen), Jami got last BONCOS, and Cathy had most losses!

Justin and Me just being our goofy selves. We look forward to reading about what you have all been up to. xoxo Justin and Taya :)

Jazz Game

So as one of Justin's Christmas presents I bought him some JAZZ tickets, with the one condition that he had to take me with him of course :) So we headed up to the game on tuesday night to watch the JAZZ take on the San Antonio Spurs. It was close the entire game, but the SPURS ended up takin' home the braggin' rights.. I was bummed, but what I was really hopin for was to see Eva Longoria (her main man plays for the Spurs) sorrry to say I had no such luck. But man what a game!!

Here is a little Game action for ya!!

Mmmmmm... Dippin' Dots! The best part of going to the Jazz Game if you ask me :)

Me and Justin.. In his Dallas hat of course!!

My turn for Boncos!

So this month it was my turn to host Boncos and it was a blast! We had such a great time and I know that we all look forward to the night out once a month. We had dinner, rolled our hearts out, and even played a little Guitar Hero: World Tour. I know it was just what I needed and couldn't have asked for anything better. Oh and Greg should seriously think about a singer career :) lol.. I don't think I ever laughed so hard.. Maybe him and Jake could do a duet. Now that would be a party!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Tod had last bonco, Amy had most losses, Mandi got most wins after an intense roll off with Cathy, and Justin won most Boncos! Now thats my babe :)

Me and Laci putting our rollin' skills to the test. Love this girl Oh so Much!

And here is the band in ACTION! Jami's on the bass, Justin had the guitar, Laci Lou on the Drums (hardest part if u ask me), and Glorious Greg was hittin' those vocals. Ahh.. Good Times!

So thanks everyone for coming. It was a riot and I can't wait to let loose with all your crazy selves next month... :)
