We love dollar movies!

One of the few things I like about living in Utah--there is a dollar movie theater in just about every city. Cheap date nights for all those newlyweds. No but really, Daniel and I are OBSESSED. I'm not exaggerating when I say we go once-a-week. It doesn't even matter what movie is playing either because as long as I have a bucket of buttered popcorn in front of me and a giant Dr. Pepper, I'm happy as can be. Same goes for Dan. It's sad, I know. But we do get to see all the movies we missed, or were just too cheap to pay for, when they were in the regular theater. Even though we could rent them at the nearest Red Box, or just get them on our unlocked Apple TV, seeing a movie in theater is so much better. And our best kept secret: keeping our popcorn bucket and reusing it. Genius! Don't worry, you only get one free refill so we only re-use once. How cheap/smart/awesome are we?!

This picture was taken a year and a half ago. The dollar movies never get old!


Being stuck in freezing cold Utah makes me really miss our amazing honeymoon in Cancun, Mexico. I used my iPhone to take all of our pictures there (because I don't have a camera--my mom dropped it in the water at Lake Powell--thanks mom ;-). But since I have all of our honeymoon pictures in my back pocket I find myself looking through them ALL OF THE TIME, especially while bored in class. We had the time of our lives during those 5 amazing days on the beach. Going to an all-inclusive resort is probably the best thing we could have done, aside from the fact that I swear I was ten pounds heavier when we got home. From the room service every morning (sometimes as early as 2 am ;) to the waiters taking our drink orders by the pool whenever our hands were free of a pina colada, I think it's safe to say we were living in paradise for those 5 days. Here are a few of my favorite pictures.

 Oh ya, we had our own swin out pool from our room. No big deal!
 Our favorite of the 5 sit-down restaurants at the resort. One of those places where they cook in front of you...SO GOOD:)
 We had a blast on this bad boy.

Ohh 2011

2011 was just too good. On January 29th, I got engaged to my bestie and was married August 18th. In between I had an amazing summer. There were three weddings and two babies added to the Reilly family. It was an exciting year. Nelli, Trevor and Jess's baby girl and the first addition to the fam in 2011, was a huge hit. She still is. Every time that girl is around it's all eyes on her. Then we had Aurielle join the club. Then Bonnie. Then Daniel (my HUBBY), and last, but definitely not leaset, Rio Jackson Reilly. I love how our family is growing. Christmas was a blast with everyone home for the holidays and I ended the year with a fun birthday celebration with friends and family.

The two who started it all <3

Love being related the Zabinskys :)

The crooked smile gets me every time<3

Rio and mommy.

20 years young!
