Valentine's Day

This year's Valentine's Day was definitely my favorite one so far! Matt took me to a wonderful resturant, Las Brisas. It is basically a Mexican Steakhouse. Perfect for us, since he loves steak, and I don't, and I love Mexican food, and he doesn't. It was a wonderful evening. :)

The Beautiful Sunset on the way to dinner at Las Brisas.

An old picture of us, because I don't like any from that night.

Valentine's Decorations and Flowers. :)

Beautiful Tulips!

Unfortunately, I was too excited about digging into my Valentine's present to make sure that the camera was on autofocus when taking the pictures. It was so pretty though!!


Julia's choir at Seven Lakes High School was invited to sing at the Texas Music Educators Association convention in San Antonio during February. It was such an honor and an amazing thing for her this early in her career! We are all so proud of her!

Jordan, Mom, Dad, and I made the trip to San Antonio to be able to watch her choir perform. They did a wonderful job!

Jordan and Julia (doesn't she look gorgeous?)

Matt's Baptism

As some of you know, on February 7 my boyfriend, Matt Tovar was baptized in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Here are a few pictures from that wonderful day. :)

Matt and Me
Matt and his Grandma Mary. His mom's mom came to the baptism. She lives just 30 minutes outside Lubbock. We were so happy she was able to come!

Matt and I with Elder Pugh, Elder Clark, Elder Bringhurst, and Elder Randall. These guys and one more, Elder Shumway are all the Elders who have been teaching him for the past few months.

These three, Elder Bringhurst, Elder Pugh, and Elder Randall were all three companions. Elder Pugh went home from his mission four days later, Matt was the last baptism of his mission. We miss him!

Luckily my Mom was able to make it for the weekend! She and I sang I Stand All Amazed at the baptism.

It was a wonderful day! I'm so excited for him!
