When We Want to Be Happy

One of the saddest things we discovered when we moved to Provo was the lack of Chipotles in so called "Happy Valley." How can a place be happy when you don't have a Chipotle to run to when you're having a bad day? The closest Chipotle to our house is approximately 30 miles north and any excuse we get, we will go there.

This past Saturday we went to Salt Lake City to pick up Tyler's brother Zach. He drove down to SLC from Idaho with some friends. When we found out we would be going to pick him up, the first thing Tyler says is "So,we will be stopping at Chipotle for lunch, right?" I love him so much.

A Year of Plenty

During one year of marriage:

-We cruised the Caribbean
-We partied in California 4 times
- We moved from Texas to Utah during a snow storm driving a Penske truck, towing the Matrix
- Tyler started BYU Provo and then the Accounting program
- Rebekah got a completely new job
- Tyler performed a Ricky Martin song in front of the whole cruise ship
- We went sledding
- We cheered for Real Salt Lake soccer at the Rio Tinto stadium six times
- We watched BYU boys soccer beat a team from Mexico
- We took my brother Jonathan to the MTC
- We attended six weddings in 9 weeks during the summer
- We discovered one of our favorite Provo restaurants, Gloria's Little Italy
- We hiked the Y
- We spent a weekend at a resort in Park City
- We watched BYU win a football game in the Lavell Edwards stadium
- We watched Texas football games with fellow Texans (well, both of the wives were Texans)
- We took our second trip to Atlanta
- We became addicted to the local nickel arcade (we got lots of fake guns with our tickets)
- Rebekah visited her mission in Arizona
- We watched every episode of Criminal Minds
- Tyler has served as the ward clerk
- We decided that creating a blog starts a new stage in our life together

As you can tell, we covered a lot of ground in 365 days. Our goal now is to update you on our lives more than just once a year, and of course, to make you laugh as often as possible. That is actually our main goal. If it wasn't, we wouldn't be Tyler and Rebekah.
