November in review

Wow I am really behind. We have been doing so many fun things lately. Here is what we have been up to. (warning: picture overload!)

For some reason, Chase decided to bring a scalpel home from work and definately went overboard on our pumpkin. Don't ask me why he thought we should "shave" our cute little bat.

We had a fun time going to the polls together and voting. It was a neat opportunity

For my Christmas present, Brandon and Katie took Chase and I to the Coldplay Concert! It was the BEST concert I have ever been to. They are amazing and there new album is the BEST. They are one of my favorite bands and so this was SO exciting for me. We were in the 23rd row! I was on the aisle and Chris Martin walked right by me and I touched his arm :) He was really sweaty, so I wiped it on Chase haha Thanks again Brandon and Katie!!! This was the best ever!

We went on a little picnic date. It was perfect weather outside and so we wanted to take advantage of that.
We had such a great Thanksgiving! We ate dinner at the Corley's and had dessert with my family. It worked out really good and it was a great first Thanksgiving together :)

Gregg deep frying the turkey.... YUM

My mother in law decorates so cute. The Thanksgiving table looked beautiful!

Chase and his dad built this fire pit. It turned out so nice.

This is us on Thanksgiving. It was such a nice day! (Notice the picture behind us, Chase's grandma painted that and it turned out amazing) She is currently painting the sacred grove for us and we can't wait until we have it in our home

As you can tell, I LOVE to take pictures of him. He is a good sport! If he weren't such a cutie I wouldn't have this problem!!

What a hottie I married!

Our first Christmas Tree

Ashley and Ryan had a baby boy in October and he is the cutest little guy. They named him Slade Ryan Stahle. I will post some pictures of him later. Congratulations Ashley & Ryan! We love Sladeraide!

Hard Working Man

I really am not that good about updating our blog. I will try harder though. Some of you may know, but Chase got a new job in July. He works for the Donor Network of Arizona (he removes hearts, kidneys, veins, bones, arteries, takes skin, etc.) Yes, I find his job absolutely disgusting. He has some very nasty stories to tell. However, Chase LOVES it. He looks at it as seeing that he is helping save lives. It is great experience for his future plans of medical school. What better way to learn, than looking and operating on the human body. Anyways, Chase works full time and goes to school full time. I don't know how he does it. I admire his hard work so much. Yesterday morning, he was paged to come into work at 6:30 am. They ahd a case in Havasu (4 hours away) and they were going to be taking a lot from the body. (when they are taking a lot, it means they will be operating for about 8 hours) I knew this meant I would not see him all day. So, he left at 6:30 am and did not return home until 1:00 am early the next morning. I miss him so much when this happens. Thankfully, it has only happened 3 times so far. Usually, they have cases here in Phoenix but on occasion, they have to travel. There work covers all of Arizona. Anyways, he got home around 1 this morning and woke up at 6 to get ready for school. I don't know how he does it. I love him SO much and really admire and appreciate all of his hard work!

I have some pictures to update with later. I promise I will post them soon.

An interesting fact: A single healthy body can donate up to 70 different things!

This is proof that Chase steals all the covers! hahaha

A Wicked weekend in Cali

We had such a fun time in California with Chase's family. It was so nice to spend quality time together! Here are pictures of the trip
I made Chase ride Alice in Wonderland with me :)

We were able to eat at the restaurant in Pirates of the Carribean. The food was so good and it was such a neat atmosphere.

This guy talked and acted just like Jack Sparrow. I think he looks pretty close to Johnny Depp.

On Saturday we were so lucky and went to see WICKED! It was amazing. The Pantages Theatre was so ornate and really neat! Chase was not looking forward to seeing it but we both ended up loving it and can't wait for it to come to Gammage this summer.

Thank you so much Mom and Dad Corley for such a fun weekend! I am so lucky to have married into this family! They really are the best in-laws out there!

A few reasons why I love my husband...

I woke up a few days ago to this message on the bathroom mirror :) It was a nice way to start off my morning. Chase does the cutest things for me.

This picture makes me laugh! When I lived at home with my parents, I would always get ready for the day with my sisters or mom to talk to. I love having someone to talk to while I am getting ready. I am always yelling to Chase as he is playing on his laptop in the other room while I am getting ready. He always ends up coming in a few times but I always beg him to sit on the toilet or the edge of the bath tub so I will have someone to talk to. Well, one day I was talking to him from the bathroom and he came rolling in there from the family room! So, he played his game in the bathroom why I was getting ready :) He is so sweet... but we laughed pretty hard about this!

Elder Corley

Last week Chase's little brother, Spencer left on his mission. He is going to Tampa, Florida. We are so proud of him! We will miss him being around but we know he is doing the Lord's work. We love you Spence!

Fun Weekend and the 4th

A few weeks ago, both of our families were out of town. We usually spend a lot of time with them but I think this was the first weekend without seeing our families at all, since we have been married. We had such a fun time with one another! Chase came home and surprised me with Sprinkles Cupcakes! I LOVE cupcakes and had never had one before... they were DELICIOUS! It was the best surprise! Then we decided to go to As You Wish. It was so fun and it was Chase's first time doing that. He made me a jewerly box for my earrings and it turned out so cute! Then we went to lunch and then to see Hancock. I didn't like it but Chase thought it was very good. It was the most perfect day for us. The next day was the 4th of July and it was just the two of us. We had so much fun though! We had a little BBQ and swam at my parents house. My sisters dog Nixon, came swimming with us and LOVED Chase :) It was cute. The next day we went to Chandler Mall and walked around and then ate at Kona Grill. It was so much fun to spend some quality time with my husband and best friend :)

Much Needed Update!

Wow it has been months since we last updated our blog. We have been SO busy lately and I have been putting this off because there is so much to say. Well, Chase and I finally were married on May 16, 2008! It seemed like forever until the wedding and now we look back and can't believe we have been married for over a month! It really was the happiest day ever! We will never forget the feelings we had in temple. The whole day was perfect! I am so lucky to be sealed to such an amazing man! We went on our honeymoon to Disneyland for a week and had so much fun there! We went to the beach but it was really cold that day, so we didn't get in the water. It was so nice to spend so much time together and we had a lot of fun! Since we have been home our lives have been pretty busy. Everyday is so much fun and we are loving married life! It is the best! Here are some pictures of our wedding, honeymoon, and what we have been doing since then... enjoy! I am going to try better about updating our blog. We are headed to Lake Powell tomorrow and so I will post some pictures when we get back :) I am still trying to figure out how everything works on here so bare with me... I wanted all of our pictures in the reverse order but I am not going to redo it... I will get the hang of this sooner or later I promise! and I cut all of my hair off!!!

Kenny Chesney Concert! He is my favorite!!!

Look at how adorable my hubby is!!!!
