It's been FOREVER!

Well I am finally getting around to updating my blog... be prepared for the longest blog ever!
We have been really busy the past 7 months!
Greg has finished another semester of school at Salt Lake Community College. He has been thinking instead of doing accounting he might go with graphic design. He will take a couple different classes this semester and see if he is seriously interested in it. I think he would be great at it, he is very talented. I wish I had the artistic ability and creativity he has! This past summer he did landscaping for ACE Landscaping. Some of you may have seen him working the project at 106th south on and off ramps. He spent his whole summer there, poor guy! It was a hard work but a great job. Hopefully he can do it again this summer. He is currently a substitute teacher for Jordan School District since school started. It has been perfect for his schedule and it is a really fun job! He does anything from kindergarten to 12th grade. I love hearing the stories!
I have made a couple of changes the past couple months as well. I made the move to Elase Medical Spas right before our one year anniversary. It was sad leaving Salon Dante' after 2 and a 1/2 years but it was a good switch! I worked doing esthetices for 6 months there and then I was promoted to spa director. It is different than anything I have done before but I love it! I do all of the training, purchasing, and hiring. I am in charge of all the the inventory, ordering, and dealing with all of the reps and laser companies. It keeps me very busy and I love it!
I can't believe how the time flies by! We have been having so much fun in everything we are involved it. We recently took a trip to Bear Lake with some of Greg's friends from high school. He is still so close to all of his friends he grew up with. I think it is so great! It is nice all of us get along and love hanging out, we absolutely have a blast together! Here are some pictures of our New Years celebration!



We ate and played lots of games over the weekend! We enjoyed the snow, went sledding in Logan canyon, hiked the entire mountain (In one of the pictures you can see how far we are from the tiny white truck on the road), told lots of stories and talked a lot! I love spending time with these guys!
The latest and most exciting thing that came into our lives was a... PUPPY! We were on our way to church one morning when this little ray of sunshine was sitting on the drive way waiting for us to take her in! Greg was not very happy about this at first, me being the dog lover that I am told him it was destiny! We tried to find the owners but no such luck... for Greg at least! It did not take her long to melt his heart, we both love her so much!



Christmas was great!
We started out the season with a fabulous sweater party! Greg worked really hard on that mustache but feel free to tease him as much as you would like!




Elle loves puppy, she had to show her new shirt to her fist thing!


Santa at the Tait house! YES... Greg still had the mustache!

Beautiful baby Nahla!
That's going to wrap it up for me! I'm not going to even attempt summer and fall... Just know it was good!

Happy Anniversary in Hawaii!

Well I can't believe it has been a year! (on Friday) We decided to take a trip for our one year anniversary and we found a killer deal for Ohau Hawaii and we had to take the opportunity. It has been such a good year and we have had so much fun and learned so much about each other. It has been great... there could be no better way to celebrate than in Paradise! So here are some pictures of our wonderful week! (be prepared its a long post!)

At the airport ready to get out of town!

We had to just see it from the outside because it is under construction till next year. I wish we could have gone in for a session Im sure it would have been so beautiful.

Mmmmmm, coconut milk!


This is just on tree! The trees there are so cool!

Im sure you can tell we were really hot and sweaty... we asked our waitress in town how far it was to Diamond Head hike... She said 20 min walk no sweat. We figured that could just be a good walk... Not so much! It took us an hour and a half more like 90 min lady! We were so tired by the time we got to the hike, but when we made it to the top it was so worth it!

on our way up the hike! There were tunnels and lots of stairs it was a good hike.

On top of Diamond Head

Biggest Hawaiian shirt ever!

Back Again!

Well I took forever again for me to post anything! We have been busy with our regular routine greg with school, work, and volleyball and me with 2 jobs. We were finally able to take a well deserved little break. Greg had a tournament in Las Vegas and I just had to go with! It was so much fun! The weather was beautiful and it was fun to watch Greg and the team. I love how excited I get for vacations and I just hate how fast they go by! Here is a little preview of our short stay...

On the way, Gotta love fun road trips!

Dinner with some of the team

I love this picture! Greg is trying to block a ball that is on its way over, seriously you have got to watch yourself at those tournaments.... Its easy to get nailed by one!

Greg and Justin

Fun time! (Alli I tried your favorite wheel of fortune slot machine... No such luck for me!)


Our favorite part... In and Out Burger! Neither of us can get enough, we just love that place!

Catching Up!

It has been a busy couple of weeks! We went to St. George for Thanksgiving with Greg's family. We had a blast eating good food, playing games, and being away from our regular routine. We took a quick day trip to Vegas to do some Christmas shopping and of course we had to test our luck at the slots!


We have been having so much fun enjoying the holidays! Greg's work had a party at the Mariott in Provo. They had a nice dinner for us and gave us 2 pounds of chocolate (which you know we both loved) then we got to spend the night only to wake up early to get me to work and Greg to his volleyball tournament! My work had a party at Club 90... Not so great! I was only there long enough to say Hi and BYE. We have my other work party to attend this weekend and are very excited for that! We will have dinner catered and they rented out a movie theater to see Four Christmas's... any one seen it? I think it looks pretty funny!

We also had our ward Christmas party which was pretty funny as well! Some of you may know Greg and I teach the Sunbeams and we have really come to love those little kids! We have 10 four year olds! We are always exghused when church is over but it is so rewarding! So our little Sunbeams did the Nativity during the program. A few of them fought over holding the star, one was running back and forth on the stage, and another one was yelling, "It's just a cabbage patch doll" refering to the baby Jesus! It was so much fun!

Greg has been busy with volleyball, he plays for the team at the community college. Usually his tournaments are on Saturdays and it is too hard for me to leave work but this week I was able to go watch Friday nights and I left work early to see 2 matches on Saturday.It was so fun to watch and he did such a great job.
