I never liked Valentine's Day a whole lot, and I still don't even really care about it too much now that I'm married, but it is kind of fun to spend it with the Hubby instead of with roommates. This year we really do much but it's still been a good weekend. On Saturday Jared and I were hanging out at our apartment and randomly a dozen roses show up at our door (Thanks Babe!) I was pretty surprised, and appreciated the thoughtfulness of Jare Bear. Our Stake had this Valentine's Dance planned so a group of us decided we would all go, even though the husbands were not too excited about it. Jared and I went over to it, and we felt like we had been time warped back to the good ol' days of High School dances. We only lasted 30 minutes or so and then we went back home, ordered a pizza, and watched Apolo Ohno win the silver medal in the 1500M short track race. By the way, Jared and I are huge fans of the Olympics, it has been awesome watching them so far! We are so pathetic, we even moved our mattress into the family room so that we could watch the late night coverage, and for more comfortable viewing during the day! haha, we are weird! Last V-Day, Jare and I made the huge mistake of trying to go out for dinner in Provo . . . we will never do that again EVER! It was a nightmare, and I told him that I would make him something good for dinner this year. I decided to go all out and grill some steaks on our little pan grill thinger since we don't have a real grill. It actually turned out awesome! I got this recipe on a cooking blog, it was steak with Bleu Cheese sauce, so good!! Its been a great weekend and the best thing is that we don't have to go to school tomorrow, YAY!


Being a dork!

Our delicious dinner!

Last thing. . . I was getting sick of our blog layout, so I decided to change it to a new one, and I convinced Jared to design us a little logo to go at the top instead of using a boring picture like the last layout. I almost felt bad asking him because I didn't care all that much about how it looked, but I knew he'd take it too seriously, about an hour and a half later, he finished it :)

Our Korean Brother

My little brother Wess is currently serving an LDS mission in Seoul South Korea. He's coming home in four weeks and my family is super stoked about it! About a month ago, a boy who he baptized moved out here to Provo to start going to school at UVU. His name is Tae Hwan and he is a great kid! Jared and I helped him find an apartment and we've also been able to spend some time with him these past few weeks. It has been really fun for me because I feel like he is my little brother since he talks about Wess all the time. I can tell that Wess really had an amazing impact on Tae, and I am so grateful that he is here in America. This past weekend we went down to STG for our nephew's 1st birthday part and we took Tae with us. Haha, the kid was very excited about this new adventure. During the Drake's party, I swear Tae ate like 3 hot dogs, 4 handfuls of chips, 3 cupcakes, fruit, veggies, crackers, rice crispy treats etc. He ate SO MUCH FOOD haha, we all thought he was going to get sick, but he just kept claiming that he loves American food and that he couldn't stop because it was so delicious! Not only is he a funny kid, he is also very very kind. He is one of the most gracious people I have ever met. Jared and I are both lucky to have been able to adopt him into our family, and we are excited for when Wessy gets home so Tae can hang out with him. We are all counting down the days!

PS- Pics will be coming soon. . . probably :)
