no, my blog is not dead, haha I have just not had the time to blog, plus my work blocked our Internet so I cant blog at work anymore :). Just a few things to catch up on for my wonderful blog journal. My whole family is wanting updates so I will just give a few..

We went to California for Thanksgiving this year. It was great! we did our annual walk on the beach thanksgiving morning ( which I think is always my favorite part of the Holiday). Spent two wonderful days with family seeing movies, going out to eat, working out together, and just relaxing. I love going home, I miss my family more then anything.. thank goodness for Skype!

New Mexico..
This was my first Christmas away from home this year and I am so thankful I have such awesome in-laws! It honestly made it so much easier to be away from my own family and to have a family I love as much as Chase's. This was the first Christmas in five years all the Hathaway's were together! It is fun learning new Christmas traditions, so Chase and I can combine them and make our own for our children. We stayed there for four days and had game nights every night ( which the girls always won ) and ate Delicious New Mexico food! I love Yevette's Garden, she always has such great fresh vegetables and Salsa! yummy!
Valentines day-
This year Chase is finally letting me go to pirate island pizza! For those of you that don't know what this is, its awesome! its like chuck e cheese but pirates! there is a big ship and talking pirates and yummy food! I am such a little kid at heart and have been wanting to go for months! Thank goodness his nieces are in town so I actually have an excuse to go. So tonight i talked all the siblings in to going with us as well :)
Chase has two more semesters to go in school, and he is loving learning all the things there is to know about construction. Every time we drive he points out something he sees that has to do with his classes.. its pretty funny. My mom loves when she drives with him :)

I have been doing good at work and still loving it. They asked me to fly to Florida to our corporate offices this week and asked if they could film me doing a consultation so they could use it for their training. I was really flattered but I had to say no.. Its Valentines weekend!

Biggest Loser-
My parents, Chase and I are making a goal to loose weight together and in August my dad is going to treat us to a get-away vacation. I am so excited about this! I gave up Diet coke! I know, I had a headache for about three weeks :) haha. It has been really fun doing this with everyone and calling my parents for motivation and I am surprised at how easy it is when you actually have people doing it with you.
Well that's all for now! but I promise to keep more up to date from now on!

Dana...I feel like I haven't seen you forever! We need to force the guys to play more sports together so we can chat! :o) We'll always have summer softball to look forward to! Someday we'll be back to attending the married ward that might help. You and Lauren will be the only people left that we'll know by then!

I haven't updated my blog much lately either. I keep thinking I'll take it private...but then I don't think anyone reads it anyway. Maybe I'll just discontinue and then I don't have to worry about it.

Let's get together (yeah, yeah, yeah).
