A day at the spa

The Saturday before my wedding my mom and I went to get a pedicure. She didn't tell me that my bridesmaids were going to be there too. It was such a fun surprise! We had a great afternoon relaxing, laughing and eating b.b.q. turkey sandwiches & toll house pie from the Dodo!


Elder Parker Whitney

My little brother Parker is currently serving a mission in Tulsa Oklahoma. He left May 16th so he wasn't there for my wedding. A few weeks before he left we had him come take pictures with me so he was part of the wedding too!



I know we had this picture at our reception but I just couldn't leave Bella out of our Blog! For those of you who had no idea we had a dog here she is! Bella is one of Ellie's (my mom's dog) puppies. Bella was born with a little birth defect in her leg and the breeder wanted us to put her to sleep because she said that Bella would have problems her whole life. I didn't care what she said I was not going to let them do that so I decided I would keep her. We had a few different specialist look at Bella's leg to see what our different options were and all of them said she would be better off without it. I was so upset and did not want to but decided I needed to think of Bella and not myself. She had the surgery when she was just a few months old and it was a success! She gets around great and is the sweetest dog you have ever met! Brando and I can't imagine our life without her!

Brando & I were married June 27, 2007 in the Salt Lake Temple. Here are the first of many pictures to come from our wedding!
