Moving on Up (or South or whatever)

Basement Apartment rented in Pleasant Grove, Utah.

2 bedrooms (yes, 2) 1 bath
washer/dryer not included - but owning your own is kinda nice
utilities included: Internet, Direct TV, and DVR
Huge pantry in the kitchen
secret staircase to nowhere behind bookshelf

1st month's rent includes leaky drain that will soak the carpet in the master bedroom, but deposit covers game night with the great family that lives upstairs.

Perfect for a nice, incredibly good-looking couple relocating from Draper. Close to freeway, shopping, movies, and restaurants. 12 minute commute to popular offices in Orem.

I love the bathroom, weird I know but it's the only place where I am perfectly happy with the way it looks.

One more picture needs to be hung, but otherwise a comfortable and cozy home.

Pictures don't do it justice, this is one you must come see in person! Call immediately to make an appointment!

Have You Ever....

gone snowshoeing? Mike and I went this weekend with my cousin Rachel and Mike's brother Ben. Turns out, it's a lot of fun. If you get a chance, go.

Holiday Update

I figured I would finally get around to putting up some pictures from Christmas (like finally getting around to taking down the decorations from Christmas). The thing is, I didn't take very many pictures. But I will tell you that we had a great time with Mike's mom in town and all of the fun things my family had planned, and Mike's birthday.

2 days after Christmas we took on the airport craziness and went to PA for 8 days to see Mike's dad Bill and stepmom Sally. That was a nice week of mostly relaxing in front of the fire and sleeping in.

We did get away to New York City for a day and saw the Christmas tree at Rockafeller, ate at a trendy NY restaurant, and ran into a celebrity (Keith Olberman). Of course we "caught a show" on Broadway (a comedy called Alfred Hitchcock's 39 Steps), and it was too cold to walk around the city so we took the subway, which was fast, but smelled bad.

The best part of the holidays though was having the Burgoyne men (Mike, Bill, and Grandpa) together in Pittsburgh

And playing with Bill's woodworking power tools

Even I got into the fun (with adult supervision of course)

No joke ... or tease!

I saw this commercial on tv and about died laughing.

This is for all the girls out there who have ever teased their hair, tried to tease their hair (I admit, I had an unsuccessful tease stage in 6th grade), or made of fun of those who teased their hair.

I heard once that "big hair" was a trait of "utah mormons" but now everyone can enjoy it!

go to

P.S. I promise to catch up on the past 2 weeks, but this was too good to postpone.
