eh eh ehm...Hi I'm him.

First of all...LOVE this song, the dancing, and basically how my 2nd semester of college was. Introducing......


How did I end up with a phenomenal husband?? He's honestly the best. I came home last night kinda late and he had cleaned the house, started the washer and this morning he made the bed. My house is so beautiful because of him!
But I really do love him more and more everyday! Gah! I'm so happy!

But....Utah....sucks. The traffic is crazy. Coming out of SLC is stinky.

BUT....The weather rocks. It's bangin' for sure.

The fall colors are wonderful. I just want to go hike those big mountains! :)

My nieces and nephews make me so happy. I love their big smiling faces and how they run into my arms anytime I go over. Randy is so good with them too. He's going to be a FANTASTIC father. Can't wait!!

I miss my momma, and poppa, and family. It's hard being away from family and friends. But I went out to dinner with Kassidy last night and it was SO good. I loved being able to just relax and have a girls night.

Know what's funny.

A year ago, I was just starting college, all I worried about was school, boys and taking way too long to get ready and be all pretty for the fella's on campus.

Present day, all I care about is a clean house, empty laundry baskets, what I'm going to cook for dinner, and making Randy as happy as possible, and not taking nearly as much time in the mornings getting ready. I'm not letting my appearance just go though! I still get ready, but I just don't necessarily care as much. SO crazy to me.

Weird how much life can change in a year.

I'm so blessed.
Randy and I have been attending the temple weekly and we have received SO many blessings from it. I encourage all to go as much as possible. It's helped with furnishing the house, to money and to job searches. LOVE THIS GOSPEL!

So I CAN'T wait to get my new camera (Nikon--5000 or 7000) so I can start photography. I just love it and I'm dying.

Something I really want to get into is craftiness. Homemade headbands and accessories. Refinishing furniture.

Take a looksie at this....my new obsession and I vow to do this.


Is this not cool or what!?

It's so cool what you can do with "junk". WHOOHOO!

Venting

Couldn't think of a creative title, my brain is poopy today. 
Randy is a grandpa. He goes to bed at 8 or 9 but the latest is 10. He's drawn me in to the elderly habits. 
Recent news: Amy had her baby. New niece Alyssa! She's a little miracle and oh so cute. 
So this weekend, I turn 20. Hoorah! Hopefully I get to spend it at home. It's been hard down here not knowing anyone and basically since I got engaged, I guess I fell off the face of the earth. I don't talk to or hang out with anyone. O well. I guess I have my BFF-Randall Charles Searle. But it's nice to be thought of by friends and to hang out with them. We'll see what happens this weekend.
This Friday, we should also be getting our new mattress. We haven't been able to sleep at all on this bed and we've been waiting for what seems like forever to have this one arrive. Then we'll be able to have our guest bedroom all ready for visitors, which will be really great.
I'm so grateful for family-mine and Randy's. They have been such a big help to us and it's been a godsend. 
Today I went and enrolled into the dental assisting program at Provo College. It's expensive and because I did something really stupid and submitted my FAFSA before I was married, I barely get any money from Pell Grants. GAY! So I'm really upset by it and stressing out about how I'm going to pay for school. We'll see. I trust Heavenly Father to provide a way as long as I do what I'm supposed to and attending the Temple.
Welp just thought I'd jot a few things down.

Peace and Blessins'

HONEYMOON PIKCHAS!
Hmmmmm I like me some decapitated Randy.
In front of the Library of Congress. Every building was so beautiful and ornate.
One of the ceilings in the capitol building. George Washington is there. Can you see him???
Because all otters sit like this.
Free dessert. I felt so special :)
Washington Monument.
In the Washington Monument at the top.
Washington DC temple. So beautiful!
Changing of the Guards at the Tomb of the Unknown soldier.

10 things I love about Randy

1. He takes out the garbage and puts his dishes away. 

2. He kisses me every morning before he leaves for school. (Even when I'm asleep :])

3. He appreciates all that I do and shows it. 

4. He supports me in all I do and will put up with my indecisiveness until I decide what to do. 

5. He's open and communicates what's on his mind with me often.

6. He goes to the temple with me.

7. He holds my hand....Always.

8. He makes me laugh everyday. He has little voices he does, we have our inside jokes and he just knows what makes me giggle.

9. When I'm having a bad day, he'll go out of his way to make it a little better and put a smile on my face, even when he has things to do.

10. I get to be with him forever.
