Engagement Photos

After discussing with a good friend that I have none of our engagement photos available, I decided it would be a good idea to post a few.  We had a great time taking photos at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.  Our photographer is really good and he made it very enjoyable.  Hope you enjoy them.

Home Sweet Home

So, it's official, I now own a house (Ok, technically not till next friday, but I will own a house very soon).  It is in Mesquite Texas.  I will live about 20 minutes or less from Downtown Dallas (depending on traffic) which I am very excited about since I love the big cities.  That is actually one reason I didn't want to leave California was the big cities.  I know if I had gone back to Utah, SLC was as big as it gets and while I love Salt Lake, it just doesn't have that "big city" feel.  Anyway, back to my house, It is a beautiful little 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 car garage home.  I know, I know, I was more interested in having a pool than a bathroom, but I couldn't find a good house with a pool in a nice neighborhood.  Maybe next time (Plus my parents live like 15 min away and they have a pool, so I'll be ok.  My house is just a little 1350 sq ft home with vaulted ceilings, different than the average boring floorplan and a master bedroom closet that is bigger than most bedrooms in California homes.  Here are a couple pics of my new place.
