things I love (part 2)

I love my friends.
I have been so blessed to have the friends that I have here in Chicago- so lucky to have met these life-long friends! What a blessing to have such fun, adventurous, loving, supportive, caring, service-oriented, funny, dancin' friends in my life.
I. love. you. all.

Things I love....

I will be a better blogger....I will be a better blogger.....I will be a better blogger.....(I'm hoping the more I repeat this the quicker it becomes a reality!)....

Lately I have been overwhelmed and so thankful for so many things in my life. I wanted to share with you some of the things in my life that I L.O.V.E.

I love to dance.
I've always loved music and I just can't help but M.O.V.E to the beat. So thankful my Chicago friends share the same love :)
We love to dance!

There's a lot of new things going on in my life that I thought I would give a quick update.
1. I moved into a new condo in Evanston, IL- cutest little place that I absolutely love. (pictures to come soon)

2. Went home for Christmas and New Years to be with my family. This year I really didn't want anything as far as gifts are concerned- I just wanted to be with my family more than anything. You could say I got what I asked for, we really had a great time together. (see pictures in the next post)

3. I left Stepan (where I was working when I moved out to Chicago) after working there for 3 years and 8 months. Leaving was bitter sweet, I've learned so much at Stepan and built some really great relationships that I will miss.

4. I got a new job with Honeywell here in Chicago. Honeywell's Aerospace divisions headquarters is in Phoenix, AZ- so the ultimate goal is to move out there. (more updates to come)

Hope all of you are doing well and enjoying what 2011 has brought to each of you thus far.

Turns out....I have the greatest friends in Chicago. A phrase you'll hear a lot in our singles branch (soon to be a ward), is we may not have quantity (we're working on that), but we do have QUALITY. How true that is! These friends would do anything for me- as I would for them. We are protective of each other and very supportive as we're continuing to make important life decisions. I am so thankful for the friends I have here. What would I do without each of them Tiff Fortna would say...perish. enough said.

Ok everyone- turn up the volume as loud as it can go....I just want everyone in on a little secret...
my niece Sadie is the cutest thing ever and this video is proof of that.
Let me introduce to you....Sadie Marie Hornung....singing "Part of your world" from Little Mermaid.


Since Reed is now a Cougar, we have been following BYU Football like TRUE, BLEEDING BLUE fans! I had the opportunity to go with my parents to the first game of the season...

BYU vs. Washington
Sept 4, 2010

Here's a couple shots of the game and Reed....

So proud of this kid!

Taking in the moment...

Dad and I were so excited!

There he is... Running out to warm up!

Dad snuck a shot in...

Proud parents.

We couldn't wait for the game to start!

Watching Reed warm up

Lookin' good Reed!


Look at that long snapper! :)

Reed running to the sideline after a great snap!

What a great game!

So proud of my brother!

Reed got asked for tons of autographs- it was so cute to watch how he interacted with the little kids and the older kids/parents that would ask him.

Off to party with the family after a great win!
