Although I'm constantly boasting about whimsically meeting my soul mate in Scotland, it's technically untrue... You see, before we departed for Europe, we were required to enroll in a prerequisite classroom experience. And on the first day of this classroom experience, I entered the classroom tardy and made a b-line next to him, the cute guy.

While some might argue that the seat was the most convenient, that's definitely
not why I choose that particular seat. With his bustling beard and buzz cut, I was completely intimidated. On a weekly basis, I had to endure his merciless peer review + grades. Yet, little verbal communication occurred throughout the semester.

Who could have known that that Mysterious Boy would someday be all mine?
Sensing the centrifugal force from Day 1, I think I did...And since our happenstance, nothing has ever been the same.

Brief Biographies

Dalaney is a double major: Spanish and political science. He dreams of politically reviving the conservative fundamentals of the Republican party across Utah. In an ideal world, Dalaney would eat a "sweetie," or dessert, after every meal--breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Achieving the ideal balance of country morals and a city-esque attitude, Dalaney is highly desirable-- and well-rounded to say the least. Automotives, trivia, religion, fashion, food, and technology all rank high among his interests.

Daydreaming about exposing the next "Watergate" scandal, Hannah is a journalism student. She is constantly envisioning the quintessential business proposal. After numerous attempts at a savory Indian Chicken Curry, Hannah is still in the process of perfecting the dish. Hannah can complete a book in several sittings, enjoys finances, blog-stalking, and can hit more balls than Dalaney at the batting cages.

Since crossing paths in September 2008, Dalaney and Hannah have merged a mutual appreciation for LOST, Utah expo shows, Europe, Blockbuster Rewards program, Drudge Report, crawfish chowder, The Office, Cafe Rio's pork burritio, Seven Peaks, Macy's Martha Stewart home decor, Honda Metropolitan scooters, Drumsticks ice cream cones, PCs, Bill O'Reilly, skiing, and our newest addition, Prison Break.

We are so excited to graduate from BYU in April. Over the next few weeks the next chapter in our lives (aka 2010-2013+)will be determined. Please keep us in your prayers!

Love fest

"How sweet is the assurance, how comforting is the peace that come from the knowledge that if we marry right and live right, our relationship will continue, notwithstanding the certainty of death and the passage of time. Men may write love songs and sing them. They may yearn and hope and dream. But all of this will be only a romantic longing unless there is an exercise of authority that transcends the powers of time and death."

--President Gordon B. Hinckley

What we love

The 2010 Toyota Prius V: Despite the massive recalls, we covet them. A solar panel roof, 55+ MPG, navigation/DVD, and a back-up camera. What's not to love?

Cereal dispensers: Purchased with generous gift cards, this is one of our favorite wedding gifts. Every morning we dispense Golden Grahams and Reese's Pieces cereal into our bowls. They're magical.

Our current obsession: ABC's reality show 'Shark Tank.' It features a panel of five self-made billionaire tycoons who, after hearing business proposals from entrepreneurs, decide whether or not they want to invest in the business. We've seen everything from lipstick molds (which received an offer) to liquid llama fertilizer and a Bluetooth surgical implantation (no offers...). After stumbling upon the television season finale, we ended up watching six more hours online. Now, we can't wait until the next season.

Game Shows + Game Show Network.

This 10", 2 lb. Gatway netbook is our new best friend.
It's perfect for class, travel, reporting, and any on-the-go activity.

With no school Monday, we're planning on night skiing at Brighton,
our first ski trip this season.

It's official

It has almost been a month since our incredible wedding day!

All of the boxes have been unpacked, making our
apartment move-in + marriage + new family

So far, we've exploited any opportunity to sit at HOME and lounge beneath our luxurious 400-count Egyptian sheets. I am dying to post pictures of our adorable apartment.

Now, all we need is a couch...
