Kyle and I decided to be Ninja Turtles for Halloween this year. He was Donatello and I was Leonardo. :) Considering the budget and creativity, I think we didn't do half bad. :)

This is a picture of the aftermath of our costumes and a pumpkin we painted at the ward Halloween party. We had a good time.

Happy 6 Month Anniversary :D

I was sealed to my sweetheart in the LA Temple around 11:30 am 6 months ago today. I can't believe how fast time has gone and how much has happened. I didn't think I could ever love Kyle as much as I did the day we got married, but I love him so much more than ever before! He is the most amazing husband and person. He is always willing to help out around the house and is always aware of my needs. Anyway, enough of the mushy stuff. :)

Yesterday, Kyle and I went to Carrabba's to celebrate. 6 months and 1 week ago today I took out my endowment and then went to dinner at Carrabba's, so there was some sentimental value in going there again. :) Afterwards, we went to our stake conference evening session. Because we weren't super early, we had to sit way in the back....which meant we were in the next chapel with our backs to the speaker. haha. It was pretty funny. We weren't the only ones back there, either. There were quite a few couples that had to sit backwards. After the meeting, we went home and watched the rest of "Gremlins." Kyle had never seen it before and it's a favorite amongst my I had to introduce him to it. :)

This morning, I woke up to some flowers out on our kitchen table with a sweet note next to them. I was so surprised. Kyle also made his amazing butterscotch oatmeal for breakfast, which was delicious. We had a great weekend. :)

My Bread Machine

General Conference Sunday I decided I was going to try out my new bread machine. I was really excited. I decided to make my Aunt Susan's sweet french bread recipe. I put all the ingredients in the bread machine and after 20 minutes of fiddling with the machine, finally got it to start on the setting I wanted. I put the bread in through the first rise and then took it out to bake it in the oven. I rolled it out into a loaf and set it on the counter to rise for an hour before placing it in the oven. I knew the bread for this recipe got pretty large, but I had no idea it was going to be bigger than the size of my head! Holy cow! I posted a picture of the finished product to show you. :)
Thankfully, it tasted a lot better than it probably looks. In fact, between Kyle and I, we ate the entire loaf in about 2 days! :D
