Friday night we left for Boise, we have been planning this trip for a few months now, since our friend Ross said he was going to propose to sweet Chelsey after a Boise State game, and invited us out there. We got in late and got to hang out with everybody, and eat amazing chocolate cinnamon rolls that Ross' mom made for us.
Saturday morning we all drove into Boise up to "Governor's Hill" where the governor's mansion is, and the biggest hill ever, where we went ice blocking. Most everybody had never been before, so it was fun to see everyone try it, but the hike up and down the hill was no joke...
Then we went back into Boise that afternoon to tailgate, and to go to the first Boise state game of the season. I had never tailgated before, first off, Ross' mom Rachel is an awesome cook and all the food was absolutely delicious, but it was fun all dressing up together and hanging out. 
Then we headed over the the stadium, were we took our awesome seats on the endzone. Everytime they got within the 35 yard line, we got to jump up and stand right against the wall on the field. The stadium was packed with everyone in blue and orange, it was so cool watching the game, Boise State is incredible, and beat Tulsa to a pulp. 
After the game we walked around forever, stalling while Ross' parents set up a table in the park with candles, flowers, and that little black box, though Chelsey had no idea what was going on.
Finally we divided up, but in a few seconds we realized Ross and Chelsey were going to get there waaay before we were, so we totally booked it, and had to run all the way around the park to make it to watch the proposal while we hid behind a tree. It was so great to be there and support them, and we can't wait for the big day!
Heck even driving around Boise, and all the way home was fun because we were listening to the Hunger Games (my second time) so Jared could hear it, we'd get in the car and Jared and Shawn would say "no more chatting, play the book". After the game and the proposal we all went out to "merrits" this restaurant with famous scones that were absolutely delicious!
So we are home, safe, after another out of town weekend, for another week. We leave Friday for Utah for conference, which I am really excited about, I've never been!


First week and wedding

Well the fateful second to last semester of school has started, last week was totally crazy. We started school Monday, and Jared also started his internship, yeah he's doing a full time internship on top of taking 16 incredibly hard upper level credits. He is working at the Entrepreneurial center, which deals with venture capital, and he is really liking it.
I'm taking Pastry, Applied culinary fundamentals, food service management (where we run "emma's kitchen" a little cafe on campus), Agriculture marketing, Doctrines of the gospel, and two online classes. I am literally cooking all day long, and I love it! I also love my Doctrines of the gospel class, my teacher is awesome, and I've missed taking religion classes on campus rather than online, which I totally hate.
This past weekend we had the great opportunity to go to the wedding of one of Jared's friends from his mission. Thursday night we drove down to Utah, then Friday we went to the Draper temple to the sealing, then went to their gorgeous luncheon after that, oh the food was awesome, then that night was their reception. It was so cute, they had like a hot dog stand, and a photo booth, and "Mexican coke". Since Dan, (and Jared) went to Mexico on their missions, they got used to the Coca Cola down there, which is in glass bottles, and they use real sugar instead of the sweeteners, oh it's so good! We had a great time spending time with Jason, another guy from their mission, who escorted us around San Francisco a few months ago. We got to rummage around a huge Halloween store before the reception and had fun trying on masks. Then the boys slept in the car while I went to Down East (which I decided I don't like) and the beauty store haha. It was a great weekend, and we are back ready for week 2 tomorrow!


Great weekend in Utah and Crafting up a Storm

We left this past Friday afternoon to Utah for Labor Day weekend. After a delicious dinner at Panda Express we got to my Bunch Grandparents and hung out with them until my family got there late that night. It was really good to see my grandparents, my sweet Grandpa Bunch was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease (or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, ALS) recently. ALS basically depletes your motor functions to the point where eventually you cannot move, chew, drink, or breath on your own. As my Grandpa puts it, "Your brain keeps sending the checks, but your muscles don't cash them". Along with that, the ability to regenerate muscle tissue is lost, so the disuse of his muscles causes them to shrink away. It is a horrible and rare disease, that they really don't know much about. So instead of winning the lottery, he got ALS, the chances are pretty much the same. He is walking with a cane, but other than that, he is doing good, but the problem is that it came on very rapidly, and they say if it comes on rapidly, it doesn't really slow down. Anyway, that is very sad, but I am so glad we got to spend time with him, and talk with him, he still has time left!
Saturday we really just hung out. Mom, Dad, Skyler, and I went out shopping, then came back to get ready for family pictures that night. Though I'm glad we did the pictures, it was just soooo much fun doing them with sooo many guys who just looove taking pictures, haha...not. There was our family, then my Uncle Robin and Aunt Dana with their 3 kids, my Uncle Gary and Becky and their three kids, my Aunt Laurie and uncle Mark and their 2 kids, and my Grandma and Grandpa Trimble, so there were a ton of people, and it took forever. We haven't seen the pictures yet, but I hope they turn out!
Sunday we woke up and headed over to my Aunt Laurie and Uncle Mark's church, because they were blessing their new baby, then we went to their house and had a delicious brunch. Then we went back to my other Grandparents house for the rest of the night just to all hang out.
Monday my family left, my Grandma Bunch and I went to Hobby Lobby. We don't have one here and I could probably die of happiness in that store. I've been wanting to do a lot of crafts, so I got my stuff, then we headed back up home to lovely Idaho.
Since we got back I have been crafting like a mad woman. Here are some of my creations so far!
I think this is what I am most proud of, the sign says "Aqui la vida es simple" which means "here the life is simple"

 Here is my wreath! I really like it!
 We have been wanting to do something like this for a long time, you put in the paper behind the glass of the frame, and that acts as a dry erase board so you can write something on the line!
 These are dates. My birthday, our anniversary, his birthday
 trying to dress up the thermostat wall haha
 this is my cake stand!
I also have some big prints of our wedding being shipped to me, and I'm going to mount them and make them look all vintage, I am SO excited for that, I will be sure to put of pictures of the finished product!
