HO HO HO, Green Giant.


We went and saw THE HULK! I thought that it was pretty good. I went in thinking that it was going to be so dumb, since the last one was one of the dumbest movies that I have seen (and I have seen my fair share- Dragon Wars, Anyone???) I was pleasantly surprised. I won't give too much away- other than he dies in the end. JUST KIDDING. I would go and enjoy as you would any other comic based movie and enjoy it for what it is- A Summer Blockbuster!

My Color

Take this test!
You're green, the color of growth and vigor. Good-hearted and giving, you have a knack for finding and bringing out the best in people. Green is the most down-to-earth color in the spectrum — reliable and trustworthy. People know they can count on you to be around in times of need, since your concern for people is genuine and sincere. You take pride in being a good friend. For you, success is measured in terms of personal achievement and growth, not by status or position. Rare as emeralds, greens are wonderful, natural people. It truly is your color!


I actually really like the color Green. It is one of my favorites! Now- How to convince Chris that I need an Emerald! ;)

Nick and Natalie Wedding - May 17, 2008



When Chris and his friends met he was not a member of the church and I don't think that talking about religion was on the top of their list (I'll spare you all the details, but you can ask Chris anytime. They are really entertaining.) Well, when all of Chris's friends started to get ready to go on missions his friend, Nick, really wanted to get Chris interested in the Church. So Oct. 2000 conference came around and he told Chris that he should watch it
Saturday morning there was nothing on t.v. so Chris started to watch conference.  He said that it felt like every talk was read directly to him. He started the discussions with the missionaries and was baptized Nov. 4, 2000,  served a mission to Ukraine from 2002-2004.
Fast forward to November 2005 where I was working with Nick at Zions Bank. He told me about a friend that he thought that I would like- and here we are.  Who knew?!
So we really owe Nick - that is why we got Lagoon season passes with him and his new wife. Jealous? Yeah, I thought so. 

Last time this was done at the temple, 
Nick ended up with split pants. Hence him standing
in the back. Ha!
I told him that I would have one kids middle name be Nicholas since he gave me the eternal family. Small price to pay. I'll make sure that it is the runt of the fam. Just Kidding! 
Congrats Nick and Nat. See ya on THE BAT!

Enter the Dahlins to the World of Blogging

So since all my friends it seems have blogs and Chris's friends have talked about doing one- I guess that this is the way of the future. I don't have any super cute kids of my own to share lots of pictures of.....that being said, you will see a lot of nephews, nieces, and anyone else I feel so inclined to share about. 

Chris and I met by his friend setting us up on a complete blind date. He thought that I was chubby since I had a lower voice for a girl. Good thing that I wasn't or it might not have gone much further than a dinner at the Spaghetti Factory. We got engaged 3 
months later and then another 6 horrendously long months later we were married. I would never tell anyone to be engaged for that long EVER. We lived in Sugarhouse for 4 months while Chris finished his last semester at the U of U and then transfered up to Weber where we are now living and somehow both going to school. Chris and I have been in Ogden for a year and a half. How the time flies. We live in an apartment almost directly across the street from Weber State University. And I am not kidding when I say that they are called The Apartments. Yes, The Apartments. I love that we live so close to campus, that means that Chris gets his daily dose of almost losing his life when he has to cross 6 lanes of kamikaze traffic to obtain his higher education, and we don't have to pay for parking, Silver Lining anyone? 

Chris actually just graduated and now is doing his Masters in the fall. 3 short semesters away from not being students anymore and now we will have to be real adults. Isn't that when you are supposed to buy a house, buy a car that is more than $150 a mo., have a child and a half, plus a family pet? Holy Crap! We are way behind. Good thing people are living longer there days. 

Well, here we are entering the world of blogging, all my friends are doing it so I should right? What is that age old saying..... If your friends jumped off a bridge would you?
Yes? Then come on in the water is just fine! 





Our Life Together......So far
