Most people wake up at 6:20 AM to go play football on Thanksgiving morning; however, we joined 3,600 others to run The Human Race 5k. Our times according to the official race results: Brady – 25:41.8 – 8:16 pace – 27th place in Males 20-24 Kellie – 29:55.3 – 9:37 pace – 13th place in Females 20-24 Greg – 19:49.9 – 6:23 pace – 4th place in Males 20-24 I am quite proud of myself for finally dressing well for the race and finding my DC beanie that had been…read more
Fondue? I’m not going to lie, whenever I hear the word Fondue I think of Chase Brammer and him introducing me to this delicacy. On Friday night we were invited to go to The Melting Pot with Kellie’s parents for Matt’s (Kellie’s little brother) birthday. It was, well, a 3.5 hour experience. Our four course meal started off with two different cheeses, one being Spinach Artichoke. We dipped breads, broccoli, and even apples into the cheese. The second course was a delicious salad that didn’t include heating up a pot…read more
If you could have seen my kitchen last night…you would think something had exploded in there. Frosting on the walls, flour on the floor, dough in the sink…and the scent of freshly zested oranges. That’s because I was trying to make Brady’s mom’s Orange Rolls. Not an easy task. A word about Brady’s mom: She is fantastic. She’s an AMAZING cook, and she knows how to make just about everything…from Orange rolls to English toffee to pizza and beyond. Naturally, when Brady married me…I knew I’d have some big shoes…read more
It’s a baby blanket. Not for me, of course. Some friends of ours recently had a baby, and I wanted to give them something. A little girl can never have too many blankies, right? I don’t consider myself a particularly crafty person…so when I make something like this, it’s a great triumph for me. So here it is, in its full artistic splendor.
Kinda sounds like an oxymoron, right? The only nightlife I ever knew in Provo was the awkward-date-at-the-creamery nightlife…or the cramming-for-finals-at-the-library nightlife. Now that was a rockin’ time. But this weekend, Brady and I discovered a semi-swanky jewel in this sleepy little college town. It’s called Spark Restaurant Lounge. Saturday night we went to a BYU Singers/Concert Choir Performance (which was fantastic…I highly recommend them.) The concert was sponsored in part by Spark, and we got a free $15 gift card at the event. When the performance was over, Brady and…read more
It sounds epic, I know. And it all happened in less than 90 seconds. Brady and I like Costco muffins (but then, who doesn’t?). We also like to package them individually and freeze them so they’re easily accessible and stay fresh longer. But packaging a dozen oversized Costco muffins in individual zip-loc bags can be tedious. Unless you get creative. This weekend, Brady challenged me to a game of speed-bagging muffins. The person who could bag six muffins the fastest, wins. Not one to shy away from a good competition,…read more
Brady & Kellie decided to start a family blog today after discussing it for a few months. We want our family and friends to be able to keep up with what we are up to and see our pictures.
