A glimpse into our lives

-Made super burritos for dinner together. They were delicious

-We were in school all day

-Finally doing our laundry, 4-5 loads?

-Made s'mores over our gas stove. Lovely

-Studying like crazy on the couch together

-Take 10 minute study snuggle breaks

-Sniffly still, but getting better

-Would really love to go to bed early, but can't

-Rained all day, so our car is a swamp

-People upstairs sound like elephants

Loving every minute of it.

Okay, this University could not make me any more mad. Seriously? On Tuesday I went with Dan to the Rec to watch his soccer game. No biggie, we do this EVERY WEEK. So when I get up to the front and they swipe my student ID card that I have had for 3 years, there shouldn't be a problem. right? wrong. Apparently it wasn't working so they sent me to the office. The lady in the office told me that this same ID that i've had my whole college career isn't valid and the numbers don't match, blah blah blah, and have I gotten a new one recently? No, I haven't in case you were wondering. Long story short, I was really upset, she took my card, I stomped back out to the entrance to the Rec where I, not so politely, ask the girl if I could just go in and watch my husband's soccer game. She let me. Some people aren't incompetent. Today I went into the ID center to figure it out and guess who was right? ME!! That lady owes me an ID card.

My professor in Shakespeare sometimes shows films of the plays that we are reading in order to give extra credit. Today he was showing Othello at 4:30, so i'm thinking awesome! extra credit! Apparently the film is rated R, so I emailed him to ask him if there was some alternative thing I could do or if he would be showing any other movies because I don't watch rated R movies, and instead of being understanding and sympathetic he was mean and totally degraded me. What the heck? He told me that it's a college level course so he can't guarantee the rating, and by the way, many students had seen this film and the sexual content was really mild for an R movie. What? I don't care if it's mild for an R movie! It's still in there! ya jerk. Wow, so now I'm done venting. Sorry about that.

Dan and I are both doing well. He has a test tomorrow, so he's cramming right now. I hope we get to actually eat something for dinner. This should be interesting, we haven't been grocery shopping. lol. Other than that, things are pretty dull. EXCEPT! OMG! I forgot! We got our beautiful dark wood dinner table today! Yay!!! One thing at a time.

Wow, that was weird

I was walking back to our apartment yesterday when I passed a man taking his snake on a walk. No, I'm not making this up. He was just walking around having a great time with this giant snake draped over his shoulders. So, as I am about to pass this guy, trying to give somewhat of a wide birth cause I don't know the striking range of a snake, I find myself wondering how I can become that confident. I mean, he's walking a snake. He obviously knows who he is and is totally okay with it and does not care at all about what other people think. Anyways, that was weird. Thought I would share.

1 month

On Saturday we will have been married for a month! Can you believe it? Okay, you probably can, but we can't. Time flies I guess, and in other ways it doesn't at all. It feels like we just got married yesterday and at the same time it feels like it's been forever. Interesting.


We bought a bed!! I had to do some Dan arm twisting, but dangit we bought a bed! The mattresses will be here on Saturday (I may cry) and the frame will be here like a week and a half later (I may tear up). I'm so SICK of sleeping on the stupid air mattress! AH! So, yay! We also now have a tv stand, a tv, a bookshelf, and are looking for a real table. We're becoming grown ups. We're nervous about is, so it's okay if you are.

This is the bedstead I decided on. I LOVE it.

This is actually not the mattress we bought. There wasn't a picture of it, just know that ours is better and it rocks.

Mike and Chantale (Dan's brother and his fiancee) are getting married the day after our finals are over and then Lianne and Derek are getting hitched the first week of June. May 16 and June 6. Seriously people? Good luck to us and our bank accounts!


I might actually be dying of exhaustion. I'll keep you posted. ;)

Not much to Talk About

I think I'll make some cake today. Some good 'ole fashioned chocolate cake. After that, perhaps i'll do my homework, but maybe not. Go to school, be bored to tears, pick dan up from school, go grocery shopping cause we're starving, try my hardest to put that TV stand together, and just generally veg out the rest of the evening. I'm thinking I'm going to make chili tonight cause it's raining. OOOHHH! and corn bread.

Here's a funny/ extremely frustrating anecdote for everyone. So, it's been raining for the last couple of days and my car leaks. Like crazy. Dan and I went home this weekend for Easter and while we were there my car sat outside while it rained and rained. When Sunday came around and it was time to leave, my car was soaked on the inside. We had to do a quick patch up job in the garage and then cover the whole interior in towels. This worked for about.... 30 minutes? The whole 2 hour ride home we were being dripped on and constantly trying to keep ourselves dry. At first, it was really irritating and we were both pretty upset, but then it just got ridiculously hilarious. How much worse could it possibly get? So we just laughed. Hopefully everyone gets a good laugh out of our pain.

I can't help myself

So, Aerie keeps sending me these emails and usually I ignore them. No problem. Not today folks. I opened that email and I could not help myself after that. In a couple of days I will be the proud owner of:

Don't judge me.

Sorry about not posting anything. Here's a glimpse into our lives as of late:

I get out of school/work and run over and pick Dan up from school. We get home and do 1 of 2 things: Lay on the floor for a couple minutes and talk about our days, or do the dishes. He then proceeds to study for the rest of the entire evening while I either do my homework or watch a movie. He takes 10 minute breaks every once in a while, so it isn't so bad. Most days I make dinner, but sometimes I'm too tired so I order something. Then, we read our scriptures, say our prayers, and go to bed. Done.

Exhilarating no? It has been a lot of fun though, this being married thing. It honestly isn't a whole lot different, except that he or I never go home. We just stay. lol. We are probably the most boring married couple of all time though. That's okay, as long as we're boring together right? Being in the family ward is different. Very different. Luckily for us, the branch is getting married off like crazy so we have lots of friends there already.

This weekend we came home to Wichita for our reception and general conference. I love being around my family. I just simply don't deserve all the things they do for me.

Finally, a HUGE shout-out to Chris and Blaire. The recipe book you gave me is the reason that Dan is being fed. Thanks!
