Kim and Kristy Graduated!

Believe it or not, 3 out of 4 of the Anderson sisters are graduated from college.  Holy cow.  Haley will be starting Utah State this fall, so she's not too far behind!

The best part of Kim and Kristy graduating was of course mom, dad, and Haley coming out to Utah from Dubai! ;)

There was bowling...ANTM style thanks to the blower...
Crazy bowling by Kristy and "Mother Faulker"

And there was some graduating and picture taking:





And there was eating.  A LOT of eating...
And game playing (gone are the days now where Kim let us play games for free in the BYU bowling alley)...
 I can't believe my little sisters are all grown up!  They're only a year and four days younger than me (although two grades younger) but they've always seemed so dang little.  Well, they're all grown up.  Kim is in Dubai right now with my parents and Kristy is living in SLC doing an awesome internship at the hospital.  Not only are they grown up, but...I hate to say it...they're p…

Daniel Turned 27! And a Pinterest Challenge...

My babe turned 27!  That's almost 30! FREAK!

It's really weird because I'm only 23 so I feel like I'm practically 20 and now Daniel's practically 30.  That means we're 10 years apart instead of only 4.  Weird.

For Daniel's birthday I made him a huge birthday breakfast that included pancakes, hash browns, and bacon.  He of course ruined it by getting up way before I was done.

When he got home at night, I had a party waiting!  A Pinterest Challenge party!  My inspiration came from this image on Pinterest:

So, I got 27 balloons and attached pictures of Daniel growing up on them.  On the back of each picture I wrote a little-known fact about Daniel so guests could peruse around and read them.  I think it turned out pretty great!  Here are some pics:







Birthday Boy!
This was his cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.  Golf themed!

I also made Daniel a big birthday dinner!  Here's what I made:

salad, mashed potatoes, crescent rolls...

3 Years Together

That's right!  On April 25, 2012 Daniel and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary.  Time flies!

This about sums up our anniversary: roses, diet coke, and pizza.  We WERE going to go to the Tuscany, but it never happened.

My card for Daniel...he didn't know than a new itouch was sitting in that blue bag!
Best part of our anniversary?  Daniel left me a 12 pack of Diet Coke in the fridge AND my parents were visiting from Dubai and left us each a piece of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake!  HELLO!  Thank goodness because look how otherwise empty the fridge is....
Pretty...
This is not a flattering picture of Daniel, but what matters is that it IS a flattering picture of his new itouch.
Banana cream and cookie dough cheesecake...YUMM
Up close and personal with the cookie dough...
While we didn't exactly DO anything exciting for our anniversary, we DID enjoy spending some time together eating yummy pizza and cheesecake!  And Diet Coke of course.  Daniel got me voice lessons wh…

Spring Happennings...

Still trying to catch up on ye olde blog.  So, here are a few of the fun things that went on during Spring 2012 in the Faulk Family (mostly with me since Daniel pretty much does the same thing every day)...

I have been teaching at American Preparatory Academy and I participated in the staff vs. students basketball game.  It wasn't pretty...for the students.  Here I am stretching like the champ I am:

I tried to get my hair dyed red.  Unfortunately it didn't go as red as I wanted, and what red I did get mostly washed out within a few days.  Why does red have to be so hard to achieve?!  


The web series I was in, called The Book of Jer3miah, came out on DVD at Deseret Book.  Of course I bought it.  It was cool to see my picture on a DVD cover (well, on the back of it).  

My BFF Emily and I made sure to get rockin seats to the screening of Titanic in 3D.  The best part was the guy who sold us the tickets: "This movie gets out at around 11pm (it was about 7:15 at the time), are…

So I Was in a Show...

When I got back from Dubai, I was B-O-R-E-D.  I was looking for work (since my time at Ecker Hill Middle School ended when the normal teacher came back from sick leave) and nothing was coming up.  I was a stay at home wife.

Not cool.

So, I decided to audition for a musical--Lucky Stiff.  It was my first audition in the Salt Lake Valley.  I doubted I would get in the first show I auditioned for since I knew no one in this part of Utah and I assumed it was probably even more competitive than in Provo.

Regardless, I went for it...and got the lead female role!  I was shocked, not only that I had got cast as a lead but also that I got cast as the ingenue!  I tried to think back to all the parts I had previously played and I could not think of one role that would be considered an ingenue role.  I'm always the villain or the quirky weird character, which has always been fine because those are great roles to play.  For example:

My senior year in high school I played Velma Kelly in Chicago
