Oh how I LOVE technology!

Skype, Face Time, Texting, Phone Calls, Emailing, Blogging, Facebooking, and Instagraming make me feel like I am not on the other side of the country from my friends and family! We love our regular Face Time chats with Chez and Niki! I love doing Face Time with Jordan Lee because she makes me laugh so hard everytime! We love skyping with my family and Eric's family! I love texting ALL of my friends and family! I love all the phone calls I get from ALL of my friends and family! I love reading all of your blogs and seeing your fun pictures on instagram! But not going to lie...My favorite is to skype with Taya Bug! She loves it too! My family will sometimes see her pointing to the computer and trying to get into the chair!
 Telling Brynn she wants to skype:)
 Cheese;)
 Skyping and talking to me on the phone!
The girls Skyping!

Washington, D.C.

After a long road trip across the country, we stopped in D.C. for a few days to spend some time with Greg and Malissa! It was so fun spending time with them, seeing where they live, where they go to school, and all the sights!

Family Time before the move!

This post is a little late but I wanted to share these pictures and memories! I got a new camera from Eric for our 2 year anniversary and it is amazing! I love it so much and had a lot of fun with it while we spent time with my family. We spent a month visiting Eric's family and my family before we moved out to NYC and it was so much fun! Unfortunately I don't have pictures while we were in Boise (Got my camera the last day we were there) but it was fun being with the fam! But here are the many pictures I took in Lindon. I love how my parents just cherish every moment we are there by spending time with us and planning fun activities everyday! 
I SPENT a lot OF TIME WITH THIS CUTE GIRL!

Welcome to New York!

Life has been pretty crazy this past month moving across country and getting all settled in. To make a long story short.. We found a studio apartment for a great price on the LDS google group and had Eric's cousin check it out and we decided to do it! It was only an eight month lease..We thought..you can do anything for 8 months...But then we got here! The place was fine..very small.. but fine. We lived right next to the water so that was pretty, but you go up one street and it was pretty scary. All of the signs were not in English and we couldn't find many people who spoke English. We had to keep asking ourselves if we were in America.. We had no cell service in our place and it was so far away from everywhere. We want to live in Manhattan to get the full NYC experience...this was not it!haha Eric didn't feel good about me being in the area alone while he was at work.. So we really wanted to move. Luckily the lease we signed and the money we paid we got back because the company we paid was in trouble and no longer the owners of the building...WELCOME TO NEW YORK! So we got out of it and started spending our time searching for a better place to live! We decided we wanted to live on the Upper East Side so we went to the ward and luckily sat next to this way cute and very nice couple that just hooked us up! They invited us to dinner that night, we hung out, got to know each other and there was a couple there that was moving and said we could move into their place. We checked it out and fell in love!! We moved in two weeks later and could not be more happy! We moved from a studio in the far from the experience we were wanting to a beautiful one bedroom apartment! We LOVE the location, we LOVE our ward, we LOVE our apartment, Eric LOVES his job, we have made fun friends, and we LOVE Skype/FaceTime dates with our friends and family back in Utah and Idaho! We have gone to see some sweet things here and have made our NYC bucketlist and can't wait to go and explore the city more! We also can't wait for our friends and family to come out to visit! Thus far we have friends coming in August, possibly September, my parents in October, my dad in November!! YAY! 
Our New Place!
 
We have seen some sights!

Our friends Jeff and Demi were in the area and we went to dinner and spent the night with them! So fun to be in NYC with them!
