Christmas Day

Christmas Joy
This is me enjoying my present! Santa was awesome this year!!! I got an XBOX 360 with Guitar Hero and Sonic Tennis. I am so excited for this gift that I already want Alison to enjoy it with me! We have ordered a pink controller for her to play some games with me!

Alison is openingvone of her many gifts. She already knew what some of her gifts were since she helped pick them out. I had to send her away while I bought them. Shopping with her is so much fun! Shopping together can be a great idea at times but other times it's just exhausting. Yeah for my Wife!!!!


This is one of my favorite music groups. They were on Tour at University of Florida. This is Brit's first concert she got to go to. What an experience it was.I recognized the lead singer getting interviewed and after he was done we stepped in for some football talk and pictures.We ended up talking to him for awhile and having a really good time! Come to find out he is a HUGE GEORGIA BULLDOG fan so after the 49-10 beating the took I doubt they will be coming to Gainesville anytime soon. What a great guy that really is down to earth with the fans. This is one band that Megan will really get into! It seems now that every concert we go to we meet someone from the band and it ends up being an awesome show. Hostetler's are not meant to be held back from restricted areas at special events!!!! Mom I suggest you download "Honestly" and "Say anything (else)" by this group! Good times!

All American Rejects


We went to see the All-American Rejects in Orlando and this picture lives up to the "a picture is worth a thousand words". When we got to the concert Alison went to the bathroom while I waited outside. As I was waiting someone started banging on the door that leads outside. I didn't go and open it in fear that it was someone sneaking in and didn't want to get kicked out for letting them in! A few seconds later Security goes and opens the door and here come the Lead Singer of the band. I talked with him for a few moments and then he left. I wanted Alison to meet him and a picture so I rushed into the Girl's Restroom and grabbed her out of there. None of the other girls minded that I was in there. So once Alison and me met up with the lead singer we tried taking a picture. Alison's camera ended up failing and being on "low-battery" so we couldn't take the picture to document our "groupie" moment! The lead singer was about to go back stage and the girl you see picture on the right did not want to miss this opportunity to take a picture! So she volunteered her Camera and jumped in the photo with us!

My Grandpa thinks the name of this band is hilarious. When we told him we went to see this band he started non-stop laughing and said "you actually paid to see that band?"...then he replied "they are rejects...hahaha."! It is still so funny to think about grandpa laughing about the band! Look past the name of the band and you will find some really good music that is wholesome for all ages.

Making Christmas!

I believe and I Received this Holiday. Alison came through with the BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER! Last year I went over the limit we set of $100 by buying her the "Friends" DVD collection. So this year she evened the score with an Xbox 360...She Wins!!!! I remember Santa would never get me any video game things. I believe this is the best Santa! Now it is time to get rid of the old Game systems and start with the New. Mom and Dad GTA is a lot more violent and graphic on this system!
Working at the RESIDENCE INN give me a lot more time with everything so I think I will start doing a little more blogging, mainly for my mom and Carmen since I think they are the only ones who read it and on occasion Alison's dad takes a look at it!

4th of july

Alison is always bummed that she never gets taken to fireworks on the 4th of July. So to surprise her I brought the fireworks to her. So when I got home from work I lit up the sky! This picture show all the pyrotechnics I was doing in our driveway! Good times! I will be surprising her like this the rest of her life! I burned my thumb to...but that is the price I will gladly pay for my wife's happiness!

Pancakes with's sticky!!!

Great things happen when your married. I woke up right before church to find Chocolate Chip Pancakes and Bacon. Who said the honeymoon was over? HAHA...It's great to be me! It has become our tradition now to make this breakfast before church! It's the little things like this that make a marriage happy and successful. I love her with all my heart and am so glad to be sealed to her forever....and so is my stomach!

Just Married

We are finally married! June 13th we tied the knot. Everything went amazing. The weather was the only factor that day but some how played nice for most of the wedding and pictures! It was the happiest day of my life seeing her smile at me across the alter that day! I got my #1 draft pick for life! Alison makes me so happy and is the best thing that has ever happened to me! I love you and will forever!

Less than 3 weeks away. We are so happy and excited! It is a very fun and stressful process planning a wedding. I am glad that I will only go through this once. Today we finished up our interview with the stake president and he gave us some good SHORT advice. He told Alison that when I proposed to her that I paid her the biggest compliment she will ever receive in her life. He also told me that when he interviewed her that he could tell she was special and I was a very lucky man. I have known from day one that I am a lucky man. Every time I see her smile I get all excited that she is the one I get to spend eternity with. Let the countdown begin! (Alison started the countdown forever ago)

I am so excited to Spend my life with her despite the tears and emotional roller-coaster. Love is patient! Alison's bridal shower was amazing...thank you for all your help. Next weekend we move into our new apartment so if anyone has a good back and wants to help move us and paint the rooms let me know!

The Hospitality Field of work needs signs like this up every where. Just when you don't think humanity can reach an all time low for intelligence and rudeness....someone comes along and let's you know that Humanity is still striving to be dumb, rude, and ignorant about things. I won't elaborate on this story but needless to say this weekend has reaffirmed my beliefs in hating Northerners...preferably the ones from new york. I just want to scream and pull out what's left of my hair when they enter my building. My family can agree on this statement since we live in South Florida aka "Southern New York"! Next time you New Yorkers want to come into my hotel please have your $10 payments ready before speaking to me.

Summer Wedding

Summer Wedding and stuff...

So this "B" represent that school is over and I got a B for my final Grade. All done and finished on a high note. Things will get alot harder now with my history classes and other things I need to get done before graduating. Slowly but Surely I will get done with school.

Now that school is out it's time to do the hard stuff. This book will be my guide to everything. Not really but It would have helped after seeing all the crap Alison and other girls go through for putting together a wedding. Being Mormon makes life alot easier for planning a wedding. Ceremony and reception hall are a set deal..thank you tithing! All our invitations are out and if I missed anyone...I am sorry and I will get you something in the mail later.

Last but not least this is a book I got Alison for her b-day. It is an awesome book and really makes you aware of everything you eat when you go out. Did you know that all of Chik-Fil-A's sandwich's are under 500 other fast food chain can match that. At Arby's it's more healthy to get a roast beef sandwich than the Caesar wrap. This book is full of cool pictures and facts about what to eat and where. It has EVERY fast food place and restaurant you can think of. It also goes over stuff at the grocery store and goes over what to eat on Holidays. This book is awesome and I give it 2 thumbs up. Look into it. Wal-mart has it the cheapest for only $13.87 ( found this out after i spent $15.98 for it at Target)! Hate to say it but Wal-mart will put everyone out of business soon enough...wish they sold Wal-mart Gas around here!

Another Spring Game

One year later....! This photo was taken of us at the Orange and Blue Spring game. Last year at the Orange and Blue game was the day I knew officially that I was going to marry Alison. That has been the best decision of my life. Alison you make me so happy and make everything worth while. I hope I can be everything you want in a husband! I love you and can't hardly wait for these 2-months to pass.

Orange and Blue Spring Game


Just to give you an idea of how crazy we are about football down here we had a record crowd of 61,000 show up to watch the Orange and Blue Spring game which is nothing more than a glorified practice. Alison and I went with all of her friends and watched the show. Before the "game" started we got to see our friend, Gary Bryant, race against a football player. He made a valiant effort but did not win. He did get alot of cool NIKE gator football gear free. I did not have a chance to put sunscreen on so I got burned during the event. My friend Mike lives across the street from the stadium and sells parking. I was able to help him and make a quick $70 in 2 hours. Come fall games i will make about $200 in 2-3 hours. Nice little chunk of change for me! Go Gators!

Spring Break


Being spring break and our 1-year anniversary we decided to go to the beach! Alison and I had a great time! My foot got sunburned and her neck is burned but other than that it was great. I threw her in the water a few times and had a few nice skim-board runs! Having the beach so close is nice. People in places like with no beach access are missing out!

It is our official 1-year anniversary! It has been the best year of my life dating Alison! I am so happy to be the one to marry her and have her in my life forever. She is a great strength to me and supports me in everything. I love you "babe" and can't wait for June 13th!

Friday Night Lights

Alison and me just love this show. I got hooked on it during last year's march madness and just felt like putting this picture up. It is such a good show that shows how the high school athlete goes through his every day life in a Football crazy town. Football is EVERYTHING in Texas and this show gives us a little glimpse on how it is. GREAT it! This show has also let's me like Texas a little bit more.

Also congrats to Jeff and Kendra! Exciting news. First all the wellington kids are getting married and now babies. What a past few years it has been. Thanks a lot Kendra and I got to talk Alison out of having kids right away...argh!

March Madness

March has come and gone and what a month. It has been a great b-day for me. Alison got me a new Wii game..CALL OF DUTY use the Wii remote to strangle German Soldiers.

Andrew has returned from his mission. It was great to see him. His first night back we took him to a Gator Basketball game...Fantastic.

Also Alison's family came to visit and it was a fun visit. They got to see the Orlando temple, stay at my hotel, and have Leah play Wii all day. It was nice to see them and my family get along and have a good time. It will be scary to see how crazy we all get when we get together towards the wedding date.

Good times. So this next month we will be scrambling for a new room mate and getting more wedding plans going! All is well!

It was a dramatic finish for the night of Wii Sports. I only needed to get the spare to win the game but to my luck...only got 2 out of the final 3 pins down. Alison just needed to get a spare for the win. She knocked 8 down on her first try and on her final bowl got one pin but not the other won! Making me the winner 170 to 168!!! I WIN...whats the name of this game? I WIN. She can beat me all she wants but I got her! She usually beats me bad but I finished her off! She loves playing the Wii when she is winning but hates it when the PIRATE WII beats her!

Friday, March 14, 2008


After work Alison went home to get some sleep. Usually she falls right to sleep but for some reason could not go to bed. So to make her fall asleep she went and surfed the Internet. After a little while she went on to Craig's list to just browse. Craig's list is a market place to buy/sell anything. She noticed in housing an apartment right next to campus for sale. So she jumped right on it and sent me over to see it. Later that night we made an offer and now are "renters" of an apartment right next to campus! It's a huge 1 bedroom 1 bath and will all be for a little under $500/month! We lucked out and love it! You will all have to come see it once we get moved in and all set up! So we can move in June 1st...Carmen come help us with the handy man stuff and Curt you can come help do the dishes....hahaha! Mom's....send us some stuff!

New Job

The 14th is when I start my new job! I put my 2 week notice in at the Cabot Lodge and they are sad to see me go! New opportunities await! I am very excited and look forward to this new job. Getting the job really picked my spirits up since according to everyone Florida lost to Appalachian State since we didn't beat Michigan! Dang the loss stings! I also give approval to my mom's reviews about "ENCHANTED"! it was a cute movie! Dad never leave an emergency credit card behind for the girls!
