The Hobbit!!

This past Thursday night, we went to the midnight (technically 12:15) premier of The Hobbit! 
First, I made sure I had plenty of snacks to enjoy. We brought:
  1. Homemade popcorn with white cheddar seasoning
  2. Pomegranate seeds (healthy yet so yummy)
  3. The best gummy bears in the world
  4. Dr. Pepper (gotta stay away, right?)
  5. Munchies (for Jared)
  6. And some homemade cookies :)

Funny side story: I bought the gummy bears from Orange Leaf (a frozen yogurt place over in Highland) because if you haven't ever tried them, they're the best gummy bears on the face of the planet. The flavors are just so good. So I went to Orange Leaf and filled up a cup that's usually used for Frozen Yogurt. The girl working gave me a kind of funny look. But who cares :)
We arrived at the theatre almost an hour early. It was completely packed. Like, it was hard to walk 5 steps in any direction. We had to wait for a while.
We were super excited :)

The movie seemed slow to me during the first half. Probably cuz I was seriously about to fall asleep at any second. But then the scene with Bilbo and Gollum came and I was awake the rest of the time. If you haven't seen it yet, GO SEE IT!

Thanksgiving/Temple Square Date :)

Wow, I really need to get better at blogging. Like seriously...
I'm not even really sure what this post is going to be about. But it's going to be an update on recent events. Ok so I think we can all attest that November went by SO quickly. Along with the rest of the year, actually. Thanksgiving was awesome :) Except for the fact that the night before Thanksgiving, I woke up at 3am throwing up. No food for Desiree on Thanksgiving... But it was still a great day. Jared and I were together from that morning, until late that night. We started with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade at my house. Random Fact: Jared had never watched the parade before. And it's one of my favorite parts about Thanksgiving, so we had to watch it together :) Then we went to his house for dinner where I managed to keep down a roll. Then we went to his best friends house for another dinner. Then we finally ended up at my house for yet another dinner. 
We ended the night with Jared going off to work a long shift at Kohls for Black Friday (11pm - 12pm) and of course I still went shopping even with a 101.3 fever. It was worth it :)
Last Saturday we went on an awesome date in Salt Lake. The date involved driving around SLC for 30 minutes trying to find parking. Jared got pretty frustrated. But seriously, I think everyone decided to go to Salt Lake that night. I felt like I was in New York City. 
First, we went ice skating outside at Gallivan Plaza :) 
My camera was being all blurry and stupid...

Sometimes Jared needed a break and had to hold onto the sides of the rink.
Haha no, he just thought he was being funny. 
After ice skating we stood in line for what felt like 45 minutes at Subway in City Creek Mall. Like I said, I swear everyone was in SLC that night... And apparently they all wanted Subway. After we finally finished eating, it was off to Temple Square :) The best thing about this date was the weather! It wasn't even cold at all. 
 We started at the Joseph Smith building :)
Then we just walked around the temple and probably provided way too much PDA for all the Temple Square goers that night..
What an amazing end to a wonderful night :) Being with my sweetheart at Temple Square during Christmas time. It doesn't get much better than that :) I feel like we've been together for such a long time. There's just something special between us where I feel like I've known him my whole life. Speaking of which, our 9 month anniversary was yesterday. We spent it eating chocolate covered oreos, more chocolate stuff, and watching Elf. I love him so much and every day I get to spend with him is such a blessing that I try my best not to take for granted. Since I've already done the whole "waiting for a missionary" thing, I know how much of a gift it is to spend time with the person I love. I would always say, "If I could just go back.. I'd really cherish my time with him". So that's what I'm trying to do now :) 
I put together a little video of random events that have happened since Halloween :)  
If the video decides to be stupid and not work.. You can just head over to my youtube channel at :)
