Life in Dallas

I apologize to the few people who actually follow my blog. It's been far too long since I last posted but I am finally returning from my blogging hiatus!

After two long weeks of me and Keith living apart, one trip to California, and two long drives from Utah to Texas, we are both FINALLY settled here in Dallas. We are loving our new living situation! It has been quite the upgrade from our one bedroom apartment in Midvale! Chipper has especially loved having a backyard to play in and so many different rooms to eplore/destroy. His new favorite past-time is bugging Rowdy, my in-law's 13 year old bichon. (I'll post a video sometime soon.) Rowdy has not been pleased with his new house guest.

Here's Chip playing in the backyard.

 Yes, that is a toy chick-fil-a cow.

We had a great Christmas with Keith's family! I'll admit, I was a little sad because this was my first Christmas without my own family but Russ and Suzanne did an excellent job of making me feel at home (as they always do). It was really nice having Christmas on Sunday this year. Going to church on Christmas was a great way to put the focus on the true reason for the holiday: the birth of our savior.

Suzanne made a delicious Christmas Eve dinner!

On Christmas morning, we tried to have Chipper unwrap some presents but he wasn't very interested. It might be because we just wrapped up his old toys...Sorry Chip, times are tough.

Like I said, its been a rough couple of weeks for Rowdy all around...

Today we went to the Armed Forces Bowl and got to see BYU play and BEAT Tulsa! It was really fun and the weather was gorgeous!

Keith's uncle Jim and cousin Riley came out from California for the game too.

Overall things are going really well. I will hopefully be starting a new job soon and Keith is getting ready to begin his internship with FC Dallas, the professional soccer team here. We are so grateful to have such amazing and supportive family around as we anxiously wait to hear from more law schools!

Sorry this "quick update" wasn't really that quick. I'll try not to wait so long for my next post so I don't have to fit in a month's worth of updates!

  1. Kelsey, I had no idea you and Keith moved to Dallas!
    It's good to hear you both enjoy your new home as well a Chipper. He's pretty cute, but he was my favorite! We plan to have one more litter this spring. We are going to use the same father as we did with Chip's. So if you know of anyone interested in a puppy, let me know. Keep posting photos of him, and continue to enjoy Dallas!
