    my favourite place in my home!

    I love creating in the kitchen! Anything from baking to cooking, crafts, food fights and everything in between!
    Recently I have been trying to make bread, its been a BIG learning experience and I am still trying to figure it all out but this is what it has been so far!

                                                      The buns were a little salty and dense but I will try again! 

    I tried a different recipe for the bread. It turned out well but the crust was very crusty! I believed I knocked on it a few times before we axed into it but the inside was very soft and moist and not as dense as the buns! 

    If any one has any tips let me know! :)

    How I met Curtis

    So one Friday night in March there was a dance. I really was not sure if I wanted to go or not and hummed and hawed about it all day. My friend had convinced me to go so the plan was for us to meet at the dance. When I got there I couldn't find anyone I knew so I was feeling silly just standing by myself, (although it was a slow dance so I didn't feel too awkward) but I saw another girl standing alone so I went over and said "hey! hows it goin?!"  and so we got talking and it was a little awkward at first so I just came out and said "ok! I dont know anyone here, I cant find any of my friends!" so being the sweet girl Megan is she invited me to come dance with her friends! So we were dancing the night away and I got to know the girls in the group and spotted this guy and thought 'hmm he is kinda cute, but then didn't think anything more cuz I was really not into the dating scene at this point.(So I thought) So as the night went on I saw some of my friends and danced with them and went back and forth to different friends and my group of new friends! I was havin a blast!  As I came back to dance with my new friends! One of the girls came up to me and said 'hey do you see that guy over there? He really wants to dance with you so stick around for the next slow dance!' It seemed like forever for the next slow song to come!! (which happened to be the last two songs of the night) But they finally came and all of Curtis's friends said go ask him to dance! go go go! I was a little hesitant so I walked over and not having a clue what to say! When I got to him (he had kind of walked over to me too!) we just kinda stood there looked at each other for a sec and I think we both kinda said at the same time "so we gonna dance?"  We danced to the song from the movie  'Enchanted '   and then another slow song came, things were goin well we needed to finish our conversation obviously...  so we just danced again! The dance had come to an end and Curtis's friends came over and said "so what are we doin now?" We decided that we should go get slurppies (mmm) I didn't know where the 7-11 was that we were going to so seeing how I drove alone Curtis drove with me, after slurppies we went and watched a movie, (princess and the frog...and yes Curtis did try to hold my hand! ;) So the next day the whole group of us went out for dinner and a movie and then it started from there! We kept on hangin out. The next week Curtis asked me out on a date and then asked me to be his girlfriend! And I have been the luckies girl ever since!

    How I met Kristi

    Hmm Well i was walking around in heaven and then i saw her and said hey when we go to the earth to do our thing would you want to be with me for eternity? and i guess she said yes.  Thats how we met!

    Ok really i was doing my moves at the dance and she couldn't resist my flavor.  and the rest was history.

    Ok Ok.  Well when I would go to church dances I would always tell my self that I would meet my future wife there so when I went to  bow valley chapel I told myself  that my future wife would be there so I was like what the heck i'll just go and have some fun.  So I got ready and and went with a bunch of friends of mine.  When we got there it was pretty lame to tell the truth, there was lots of candy and treats so that was good.   As we were dancing there I kept seeing this cute little girl walking by, but I didn't really think much of it, I had seen her around before but I was to chicken to ask her to dance or talk to her.  When me and some of my friends went to go and get some candy we took more then we should of, when we got back to our friends there she was dancing with the group.  I remember looking at her and thinking she is so beautiful, and she was quite the dancer to.  After a little while of dancing I think we kept catching each other eye but neither of us did anything.  So after a lot of my friends bugging me to ask her to dance (I was thinking of asking her to dance the whole night too)  I finally went over to ask her to dance and as I did she was walking over to me with this look that I knew this is the one for me and that I wanted to spend all time and eternity with.  And I really can say that the rest was history after that.

    Engagement photos

    We had my cousin Allison Walker do our engagement photos we both love how they turned out and are so happy with them! Thanks Ali! Your great so talented!

    Were Engaged!

     So of course when you get engaged everyone asks and wants to know how did he do it?! How did he ask?! So here it is! 

    Curtis and I took my car in to get a car starter put in it and we were going to hang out at his parents house  until it was done I had plans to go shopping later that day and when I met Curtis that morning everything seemed normal and great! We dropped off the car and headed to his parents place when we got there Curtis's parents were leaving and he said something to the effect I just gotta do something then were leaving so off they went and Curtis asks me so are you hungry do you wanna go get something to eat before we go? In my head im thinking "hu??!! I'm confused" not really thinking anything we leave (getting into his Dads other car) and I'm just oblivious as I'm thinking "ok well his car doesn't heat up very well so I guess it makes sense??" ... We stop and get something to eat and then we start heading out to the Banff area. So in my head im thinking oh!? is he goin to ask me today and I tell my self "dont get your hopes up, he is just being really cute he knew we had the morning together and he planned something! (I'm a huge planner! So I love it when people plan things!) So there we are off to what I think is Banff and Curtis turns to me and says "so do you still think your going shopping today?" I think I just looked at him blankly not to sure what to say ;) We take the turn off to Canmore and I'm really feelin out of the loop, and then we arrive at the helicopter tours! Baah! I was soo excited and got some amazing pictures! The pilot was super cool and talked to us the whole time! It rocked! (thanks babe!) But the fun didn't stop there we continued onto Banff and had a great meal at Tony Romas did a little shopping. And went the spa to get a massage, upon our arrival to the spa Curtis turns to me and says... and I quote "do you have my phone?" I didn't.
    So he had lost his phone at some point from the restaurant to the spa, we weren't quite sure where so after our massage we went back to look for it. Now we had previously parked on this little road between the  path beside the river and this large grassy area with trees! (which we had ran across to get to the car after we had

     eaten and done some shopping!) So we go back to where we were parked and we look and look and look! re-tracing our steps and searching calling and texting his phone! It was a lost cause we couldn't find it! As were looking along the side of the road Curtis has come to terms that he is not finding his phone and that we should start heading back as its dark and we had a party to get to! So he takes my hand and were walking along the side of the path to the car and then he leads me onto the path in front of the river and of course I'm thinking "oh! is he going to do it??!? is he going to ask!???!!" but he starts talking about the river and how pretty it is...I agree, totally not focusing on the river, but he keeps going on about the river as I'm looking for signs of him being nervous? but nope hes totally chill and cool and he gives me a hug and about what seemed like 20 minutes later he looks down at me and says, "well I wont keep you in suspense any longer" sits me on the bench and gets down on one knee!...

    Getting to know us!

    Here is a little story about us with some of our favorite things! See if you can guess which one is who's favorite! And which information is about who! (*WARNING: I may have gotten a little carried away this story is very fictional and cheesy! ;) hope you have fun!)

    Once upon a time there was a young girl who loved to dance! She enjoyed her life as she was surrounded with family and friends who loved her, she couldn't ask for more! Tho this girl had one dream and would not give up until she had fulfilled  it, which was to find someone special to share her life with! She new it would come one day so she waited patiently and invested in other interests of hers such as taking care of young children and dancing!
        Mean while there was this young handsome fellow who was a kid at heart! One night after playing basketball he went out to eat with some buddies, as he was waiting for his waitress to come take the orders he spotted a beautiful blue eyed young lady across the room, he couldn't take his eyes off her! This young lady noticed this young man as the sight of him took her breath away, the way his orange shirt made his tanned skin ( which he had achieved from his job of working in the great outdoors washing windows) glow! They shared a short glance as the young lady blushed and turned to her fajita trying to be interested in her meal. They young man quickly ordered his pasta and looked back to where this young lady was but she was gone! He panicked "where could have she gone!" His heart sank and he returned to his beloved home and noble steed the bearded dragon Rocky!
    The following day the young lady rode in the back of a yellow cab to the airport where she was catching the 12:35 flight to North Carolina! She thought about the incident of the night before and this young man who she had shared glances with but her thoughts were scattered as the cab pulled up to the airport, after sometime of waiting in the check out line and going through security she was off looking for her gate. Her stomach all in knots and full of butterflies as she hated flying she collided into someone, her reading material for the plane spilling all over the floor, literature and pictures of Hawaii were everywhere the stranger who she had bumped into apologized and stopped to help her pick up her belongings. As they gathered her items he asked
     "off to Hawaii hey?"
    "no just obsessed with it off to Carolina actually" she replied as she looked up meeting this young mans glance she realized this was not a stranger after all but the young man who she had encountered the night before at the restaurant! In some shock she stammered
    "and where are you off to?"
    "Mexico, I'm Prince Charming and you are?"
    " your lady in waiting!
    From that day forward Prince Charming and his Lady in waiting courted and became best friends! They dated for 8 months and then made plans to be wed on April 08,2011! And they lived happily ever after!
