I guess updating my blog once a month is more my style...because it is what I have been doing the last couple months. I want to be better. I just need to make time to blog our lives more often. So since we all love photos and that is a great way to document our lives here are some photos of life from October 31st until today...December 1st. Enjoy!
Boone found this in the park on Halloween and would not stop carrying it around. It was so cute. So we just told everyone he was a Pirate for Halloween:)
Quin and I were ballerina's:) I was so surprised Quin was willing to dress up as much as he did! He even asked for glitter! haha The tutu I am wearing is Jan's (Quin's moms). She made it from all of her tutu's she wore when she was a little girl. So cool!

Quin and Porter. Porter was a butterfly.

We went to the Ben Lomand hotel for dinner and Bryson's Halloween dance group was there too!

Bryson and his date Karson.

Quin and I, Erika and Porter, and Kylee and Logan

The massive sweet potatoes I bought. They were so huge! I needed 8 cups for my recipe...and I only used two potatoes!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Brothers. Dallin and Bryson

Mom and Dad

Porter and Erika

Lindsey, Spencer and Jesse

Grandpa and Grandma

Billy and Nana (I know the picture isn't that awesome...but you gotta understand. My nana is 90 and she hates getting her picture taken, so I had to try really hard to get her to look. And once she looked I just had to snap the picture.)


Quin clearing the driveway after the "Blizzard of 2010" (So overrated)

Christmas Tree!

This was this morning. It's not the greatest picture cause you can't see the beard that great...but Quin didn't shave for the whole month of November. His beard was pretty thick. This is before he trimmed.

And this is after. Yes he wanted to dress up like this, wear the glasses, and do the slick hair with a little "sleep hair" (that's what he called it) to look like a pedophile with his mustache. Creep.

His awesome Stache

There are many things I love about this photo. The slick hair with bed head, the crooked glasses, the stache of course and the buttoned up flannel. haha My husband is a nerd. But I sure do love him!

Boone posing in front of the Christmas tree. (I had to bribe him with a treat. He is afraid of the camera most of the time. Of course. What a baby.)

I'm so excited Christmas! YAY!

and I will try to be better at updating my blog more often. I know I say this all the time...but I really will try harder:)

bad blogger.

I have been a horrible blogger lately! I can't believe it has been over a month since I have posted something! A lot has been going on and I have a lot of pictures I need to post. I will get to that asap! But just a little brief update...Summer is over, bummer. I'm still working at the spa and teaching dance. Quin has been traveling a lot still...hopefully it starts to slow down for the winter, and his "Golden" birthday was last week. I threw him a little surprise get together at our house with some of our friends. It was fun to see everyone again and catch up. October is soon approaching! This week! I can't believe it. And I will be 21 next Sunday! Anyways...that is a little about what is happening in the life of the Boardmans:)

New York...Concrete Jungle Where Dreams are Made of...There's Nothing You Can't Do!!

When Quin got home from California he got a call, not even two hours after he landed, that he had to leave for New York the next day to film. I was pretty bummed cause I hadn’t seen him for a whole week and then he was going to leave again! And plus it was our one year anniversary that week! Anyways we were able to work some things out and I was able to go with him! It was my first time to New York so I was pretty excited! We left on Tuesday night and took the red eye to New York. We ended up getting to our hotel on Wednesday morning. We were beat but we had to get out and enjoy the city anyway! We just walked around for an hour or so and when we were finally able to check into our room we took a nap for about an hour. Then I went with Quin to go film some of the city. That night we headed up to Harlem so Quin could film this thing at a basketball store called House of Hoops. It was so crazy! We were like the only white people in the whole store! It was weird being the minority. haha Dwayne Wade and Chris Paul were there doing an interview. Everyone was FREAKING out! It was pretty ridiculous. When they left the store the kids were chasing them to their car! Anyways that was that. 
The next day it was kind of rainy so Quin and I decided to go to the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art). That was pretty neat. I won’t waste your time explaining every single day but we did lots of stuff. We went to SOHO and shopped, ate at this rice pudding place called “Rice to Riches”, ate dinner at the most delicious place “Max Brenner”. It’s a chocolate place so you know I loved it! They had the best chocolate  milk ever and the best dessert!

The "Alice" cup with the most amazing chocolate milk in it!!

The best dessert!! mmmm...

Starry Night

At the MOMA

Friday was pretty awesome! Quin and to go film up in Harlem again so I went with him. He had to film The Breakfast Club which is a program Michael Jordan started to help kids with basketball. So there were a bunch of kids playing basketball and doing a bunch of skills. (I sat in the bleachers watching...I was the ONLY white person in those stands. I was shoulder to shoulder with a bunch of black kids. I felt pretty cool. I wish I would have gotten a picture. Dang.) Anyways while the kids were doing drills Dwayne Wade, Chris Paul, and Carmelo Anthony came out and played with them. The kids LOVED it! Then like 10 minutes later MICHAEL JORDAN showed up! That’s when I started freaking out! It was awesome! I am pissed though cause I left my camera at the hotel on accident:( So I only got crappy picture on my phone. I was so bummed. 
Anyways some more things we did....rode the subway a lot, went to the Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Center), saw a bunch of stuff, Little Italy, Chinatown (which by the way is so nasty. I don’t recommend anyone going there.) went to Ground Zero, Wall Street, Staten Island, ate a delicious gourmet hot dog, saw the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the temple, ate at an amazing mexican restaurant to celebrate our one year anniversary, and of course we hung out in Times Square a lot. Our hotel was like 3 blocks away from the center of it.

copying the statue...the cop didn't do the greatest job with taking the picture. Oh well. 

So that was our New York trip! We had so much fun! I can’t believe Quin and I have already been married for a year! So crazy how fast time flies by! I loved every single moment of this past year and I am looking forward to another great year and then another and another and another! FOREVER! Being married to your best friend is great!!!

Family Reunion

These past two weeks have been a blast! While Quin was in California filming for a week I went to my family reunion up in Idaho. We camped at Walcott Lake and had so much fun! We went up to Twin Falls and saw the “Twin Falls” and swam in this little lake up there. We also canoed and went on the paddle boat. Here are a few pictures!
