Our little monster turned 1 years old on April 5th. We love him so much and couldn't imagine our life without him. He is so much fun and has such a cute little personality.
For his birthday we decided to take him to the beach. He had a lot of fun running around and meeting new dogs. Unfortunatly, we had a small incident while at the beach. Jared had Stitch on his leash walking him around and these two big dogs started walking all over our stuff. We didn't care because I am sure they were just smelling the puppy treats that we had in our bag. One of the dogs came up to Stitch and they started sniffing each other. Then out of nowhere this dog attacked Stitch and pinned him down with his mounth twice! We were so mad! Jared got mad at his owner and told the guy to put his dog on a leash. The guys chewed Jared out and said that Stitch was the aggressive one and that it was our fault by having him on a leash because he can't protect himself. I was really confused about that. I thought it was a good thing to have the dog on a leash and Stitch is nothing but sweet and playful. About 1 minute after the guys chewed Jared out his dog attacked another small dog, but this time it chased the puppy down the beach and I think actually bit the dog. It was horrible. Some guy pushed the mean dog away and totally cussed the owner out. After this Stitch was a little scared for a little bit but after a while he was himself again.
Other than this incident, our beach trip was a lot of fun. Our good friend Katie and her little boy Cayden came to the beach with us. We all had a lot of fun!! Stitch loved Cayden! He loved following him around the beach and seeing all the things he was doing. Again, Stitch did not like the ocean. Maybe another time, but honestly I don't think he will ever like the ocean.
March 31st was my last day working at Taylor-Dunn Corporation (my families company). I am so grateful for everything I have learned and the great experiences that I have gotten while working for my family. The reason I quit working is because Jared's business is going so well, he needs some administrative help, and my grandparents need some administrative help. Jared and I have been talking about purchasing a home this year and starting a family, so I want to get some life things in order before we start these large things in life.
I am so excited to start this next chapter in our lives. Also, it is so great to be spending my day with my husband at home and not having to get up super early anymore. Its been great!
My baby sister turned 12 years old on March 31st. I can't believe that she is already 12 years old. For her birthday she wanted to see The Hunger Games movie with some friends and have a Hunger Games themed party. I made these really cute invitations. All the girls had these really cute Hunger Games t-shirts. Below are pictures from her party, along with the invitation that I made.
As part of our anniversary weekend, we spent one of our days at Sea World. I love Sea World! It has been so long since I had been there. We got to see so many things from penguins to whales to sea turtles. I can't wait to go back again!!

I have been so bad at blogging lately. It just seems like the past few months have been so crazy and I haven't really taken any pictures over the holidays. I thought I would sit and update on the past few months up to Valentine's Day and our Anniversary.
-I turned 25 this past November. I used to be really excited about my birthdays but this was the first year that I was dreading my birthday. I know 25 isn't old but I just wasn't excited that day. For my birthday dinners we went to Hibatchi. I love this restaurant so that made things better.
-Right after my birthday we had Thanksgiving. The holidays are always a busy time for us because we split the family time up since we all live very close to each other. We spent some time with both families and had a great time. I love the holidays and spending time with family. I am very grateful that we live so close so we can see our families often.
This is always a busy month for everyone. Thankfully I wasn't making large blankets for everyone this year. However for Christmas I made my little sister a really cute pencil skirt. She loves it! This was Stitch's first Christmas and I think he really enjoyed all the attention and gifts that he got (puppy treats and toys). He is such a spoiled dog but we love him. He did very well with the Christmas tree, although he kept peeing under the tree. I think he was confused about having a tree inside the house. Hopefully next Christmas he will be a little better.
-We got tickets to see Wicked at the Pantages theater. My little sister has never see the show and so she was able to come with us and bring a friend. This was my 3rd time seeing the play and I love it more every time I see it. It was a lot of fun to spend time with my sister, Grandma and Aunt Amanda in LA.
We had a Rummler Family Christmas party before Christmas. Jared's Aunts and Uncles came over to his parents house. We had a yummy dinner and did a white elephant exchange. Jared's brother Sean also recieved his mission call and opened it in front of everyone. He is going to the Sapporo, Japan mission and he is leaving this April. We are all so excited for him to serve this wonderful mission in Japan.
-Christmas was a lot of fun and crazy as usual. Also having it land on a Sunday didnt help out the craziness either. We went the the Rummler's house in the morning and watched the little kids open their presents, then we went to Sacrament with them. After Sacrament we stopped by Nona's house to exchange gifts and wish her a Merry Christmas. We then raced home to change and head over to my parents house for gifts. I was so happy to have my little brother home for Christmas. We exchanged gifts and opened our stockings, then headed over to my grandparents house for more gifts, food and family. It was and always is a busy crazy day but we love it and we love seeing everyone.
Hopefully I will start being better at pictures and posting.
