Happy New Years Eve!!!!

So I really had to share this before I totally forgot.

Chase and I went out with Chase's parents, the Raymond's and the Tanner's Well the guys went to go park the cars and we went to go buy the movie tickets to watch "true grit". I had a free movie voucher from buying something a few months ago. Well the guy at the counter said "this is cool where'd you get it from?" Me being the person that I am said "oh I got them from buying tampons." :) he said oh, but how did you get that, and I said by getting a Catalina. And seeing that he wasn't married i figured it probably embarrassed him. Poor guy! After it happened I had to share with everyone i our group!

Happy New Year!!! Wish everyone well and travel safe!

Merry Christmas - Christmas Day

Chase and I have a tradition every year, and that is wake up. Open our own presents together. Drive down to Chase's parents have Christmas breakfast with them, eating yummy sticky buns (sorry no picture, just have to imagine their goodness). Open presents, watch a movie that we got. Then drive to my mom's for Christmas dinner, eat and then open presents and watch another movie! Here are some pictures to share the day.

First off, let me talk about this picture below. Chase has been wanting to do something nice for his parents for a really long time - get rid of their entertainment center, and put up a flat screen tv. Well we bought a tv before Thanksgiving with the help of Brad and his family and Logan. Chase knew that Raydad wouldn't set up the tv and get rid of the entertainment center by himself and that we needed to help him get rid of it. We had heard from a little bird (Mom Palmer) that Raydad was thinking of taking a 1/2 day or even working from home on Thursday (The day we were going to set up the TV, as an early Christmas present), so that meant we had to do it a day early. We got it all set up within 2 hours, thanks to the help of Mom Palmer and Logan. We even stayed late so that way we could see the reaction on his face. It took him a few minutes to realize that we had even taken down the entertainment center. Crazy right? We got a good picture of him posing the nice tv on the wall.

We sort of figured that Hurley would love a big bone! So glad we didn't get the biggest one! He is sort of having a hard time eating it now.
With all the stuff he got for Christmas. A sweater, a new leash and collar and a bone. He's enjoyed himself!

I tried doing something new for us this year to try and bring down the price of everything. So instead of buying just whatever we had 4 categories. WANT, NEED, WEAR, READ. I can't remember where I got the idea from, so it's definitely not my own. Chase really liked the idea - besides forgetting one of the things... I guess I will be getting that.
Chase got the 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime figure. He definitely was not expecting me to get it for him! He loves it! Plus now he can put it with the rest of the pack of transformers. You would think that it would be made of plastic like the others but it is made of metal and plastic, so it's really heavy!

This was my want, white watch with diamonds around it. I LOVE IT!

So after our Christmas together we packed everything up and headed to the Palmers for breakfast and presents. One of those big presents was Chase's fridge that he got for his office. Now he can take all the drinks he wants and put it in the fridge. :) He's way happy about it!

This was Mom Palmer's new nativity set she got this year. She wanted me to take pictures for her. Hope this helps.

Then we headed to the DeArmon's for dinner. I didn't get a lot of pictures. In fact I didn't get ANY pictures of people! How sad! Here's the table where we ate dinner. YUM!
This is my mom's Christmas tree. It's a fake one - so glad they got a fake one! I can't remember how much they paid for it, but they got it at a yard sale! Pretty sweet right!? We are in need of a taller one.

 On our way home there was massive fog! Here are some pictures of it!

 Eternal blackness!

 So gross right! It was definitely quite eerie outside! But I am glad that we were able to get home safe!

Thanksgiving - Over a month late...

I know it's been a while since Thanksgiving but here's what we did! We had dinner at The Palmer's, since TedDad, David and Carolin were flying out to Maryland to have Thanksgiving with the relatives. We had a lot of good food, and lots of fun playing the Wii. I totally forgot to get a picture of what the table looked like! It was so pretty!

Here are some of my decorations for Thanksgiving

Merry Christmas - Christmas Cards

I made cards to send out to family, but I didn't make quite enough. Sorry to those who did send me a card and I wasn't able to return the favor! Next year for sure - cause I made a list this time! So here's what they looked like. I got the cool design from Becky Higgins site. We took this picture while at the Salt Lake Temple, when Chase, my mom, Carolin and I did baptisms there.

We also did a black and white one too. Chase liked the color one better, but I liked it in black and white. So we made a compromise I did 1/2 color and 1/2 black and white to send out to our family and friends.

This is what I glued on the back on a piece of paper! I know I'm original, but hey at least I mailed them before Christmas! teehee!

Palmers - 2010
This year has been quite relaxing! No seriously!

Tedi had a fun busy winter and fall semester attending Utah Valley University.  She switched majors from Nursing to Exercise Science during the summer. After a boring fall semester, she decided to switch back to nursing, but will try and attend a different school.

Chase has been working at SecurityMetrics for the past two years and has moved up to be an Account Manager for many banks. He took a business trip this past September to Baltimore, MD with the Vice President to meet with a bank called Global Payments. He loves his job and wouldn't want to do anything else!

We moved last Christmas to Eagle Mountain City, and love it! Especially Hurley! He definitely loves having more room to run around, and play. Since we live about 20 minutes away from jobs and school we have made it a goal for the next few years to follow Dave Ramsey and become debt free! We still love spending as much time with each other and can't wait to start a family!

Happy Holidays!

Love, Ted and Chase

Bedroom Curtains

Don't mind the mess in the picture...
I picked these up (or my mom did anyways) from a freecycler. They match pretty good, and it's better than anything I could find at Ross or Target. Plus it was totally free! If you want to sign up for a freecycle near you just go to freecycle.org and search for a group. 

What do you think of the curtains?

Halloween Dinner

My friend Cassie and her Husband, David, invited us over for dinner and to carve pumpkins the Friday before Halloween. Chase and I had a lot of fun, and I had a lot of fun playing with their baby girl, Naomi. Here's some pictures.
 They were concentrating too hard, didn't want to smile for the camera.
 I feel bad that I didn't get a picture of Chase's finished pumpkin
 All I did was clean mine out, never got around to carving that night, too tired and wanted to play with baby! :)
 Still concentrating
 Cassie and baby! Aren't they both adorable! :)

Bountiful Baskets

I finally signed up for bountiful baskets about a month or two ago. This is all I got! I highly recommend doing it! It's well worth the  $16.50. Here's their site.

Here's the picture for all the produce I got for that awesome price! We now just don't have enough mouths to eat all of it up!
Very first basket ever!

Salt Lake Temple Trip

My mom has had names to do baptisms for a while now and at Carolin's request we did them at the Salt Lake Temple over fall break. David, unfortunately, had a campout all weekend (I think he would've like to stay home anyways, he wasn't able to get any merit badges I think is what he said), and wasn't able to attend with us. So it was just Mom, Carolin, Chase and I. I hadn't done baptisms since before Chase and I were married, so it was fun (plus I like the smell of chlorine, I know weird right). Chase was also allowed to do baptisms and he hadn't done them since he was 12. Here's some pictures of us after around the temple. Gotta love how beautiful it is outside and wish it was like that now! :)

It's that time again! Yup, AGAIN!

I posted about this last year, but got invited to the event by one of my old co-workers yesterday.

It's the annual American Crafts Warehouse Sale.

I don't work there anymore, but saw this flyer on Mandy's blog and thought I would tell ya about it again. I'll probably go one of these days. Can't wait to get all the new stuff! Better hurry in for the best selection! :)

Mounting the TV

Ever since we moved into our condo, Chase has always wanted to mount the 50" TV to the wall. He had started coming up with ideas as to get it mounted without the cords showing. It took us 2 days to "officially" get it hung. He really really really likes it. I guess I am mostly the same, and like it too. His excuse was that there is more room now for me to decorate (what a sweetheart always thinking of me). Here's some pictures:
Sorry for the glare, dang tv. :)

This is how we did it. Hole in the wall, yup your right.

P.S. He really should have created this post, not me. But apparently I'm the main blogger around here now.
