Brett and I were in 5 different states this last week! Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico! Hey- direct flights are more expensive!

We went to New Mexico to spend thanksgiving with my family! We had not been back to NM since our wedding and it was great to be home!

Adventures (and lots of pictures! -I am 22 weeks pregnant in all these pics):

Tuesday- Arrive in NM, Mani/Pedi's with Mom, Olive Garden, hang out with some friends I have not seen in a very long time.

Wednesday- Go to double eagle airport and hang out while my Dad takes Brett flying. He even let Brett fly the plane! Scary! Ride the tram up to the top of Sandia peak - it is the second longest tram ride in the world. Hike around at the top of the mountain. Brett jumped out from behind a ledge and scared me and my mom half to death. Eat a Silver Plate Travis at K&I diner. It is the NM version of Big Jud's.

Cold morning- perfect for flying!

Ready to go!

Brett can say he flew this plane!

The boardwalk on top of the Sandia's!

 Thursday- Thanksgiving! Ate lots of food, played games, and went to the movies! Girls saw Breaking dawn part 2 and Boys saw the new James Bond movie.

Friday- Shopping in Santa Fe and hiking in Bandalier! So much fun!

Negotiating prices in Santa Fe

Cathedral in Santa Fe with "Miraculous Staircase"

Climbing Ladders in Bandalier!

Saturday- Christmas decorating! Bowling, I guess my family bowls a lot now that Doug is on a bowling league! Garcia's kitchen, famous for their green chile. Home to Rexburg.

It was such a fun week! We really loved spending time with family and seeing all the sites of New Mexico! It is strange to think that the next time we see my parents- they will be grandparents!

I hope everyone is loving the transition into the Christmas season as much as I am!

Color in Motion 5k - Dallas

This weekend was my awesome business trip to Dallas! What a crazy city! The traffic was unbelievable and the water tastes funny, and its true - everything is bigger in texas! But overall a great experience I am really glad I went!

It was in the 70's everyday this weekend in Dallas- then returned to a whopping 40 degrees in Rexburg, but worth it to be back with Brett! (He also deep cleaned the apartment while I was gone! He is fantastic!

The race went really smoothly and the energy there was fantastic! People had SO much fun and just loved it! I got some really fun pictures, but of course the best ones were taken by our professional photographer.

After three super packed days (packet stuffing, packet pickup, and race day) I was able to relax- after race clean up, and my brother Brent and his wife came down from Houston to hang out! It was great seeing them, we got to shop around for baby clothes, tour the biggest mall I have ever been in, and go out to dinner! Brent took a picture of me and Brandi next to an "expecting mom" parking spot sign.

Next Week- Thanksgiving! Woohoo! Bring on family, food, and the start of Christmas music!

It's a boy!

This week we had our baby appointment and found out that the first addition to our family is a boy! Questions we get most often (1) Are you so excited? (2) Were you surprised? (3) Have you come up with any names yet? Answers: (1) YES!!! (2) Yes! (3) No, it is a lot harder than we thought!

Our baby definitely takes after Brett- we could NOT get a picture of baby's face! The doctor had to take a 3D picture and digitally delete his arms to get a good look at his face! Binghams don't really like having their picture taken - I have no idea why, I love pictures.

When we found out we were pregnant I starting making two baby blankets, a boy one and a girl one. I finished the boy one while Brett was gone this weekend!

We have a busy couple of weeks coming up and we are looking forward to all the adventures!

Pocatello, Branding, and Scentsy!


Halloween was fun- we did our traditional Halloween casserole in a pumpkin, made caramel apples, and had some friends over for dinner. We went to Broulim's to get the kit for caramel apples and received expert advice from the bakery - it pays to know the cake decorator!

This week was a lot of work and school. Brett went to Utah for his internship this weekend and in his spare time helped with branding cattle. 

On Saturday I hosted a Scentsy party! My sister in law sells it and I thought it would be fun, and it was! Timari and Mary came up from Honeyville for the party and it was fun to chat with them during the "down time" at the party. It was fun seeing some friends that I have not seen in a while and meeting more girls in the Relief Society. Overall, very successful!

As soon as they left I called Brett and he said he was driving back and that I should drive with Mary and Timari and meet up with him in Pocatello and we could go to dinner. So I caught them in the parking lot and got a ride! It was nice having more time to chat with them and to see Brett sooner than I thought. We went to Butterberrs, a cute diner place. 

The baby is doing really good, lots of kicking, we find out on Tuesday if it is a boy or a girl! We will be sure to update everyone!

Have a great sunday!
