Summma Summa Summer Time! (:

Whoa, It has been FOREVER since I have written a post.
I blame school! Haha anytime I thought about blogging, I would feel guilty for not doing homework. I had a blog for a class project that I had to keep, so that took up ALL of my 'blogging' time. ;)
Anyways, A ton has been going on lately.
Last time I wrote was in March!
Well, since then we have moved AGAIN!
We love where we live now! We are in a condo now, here in Rexburg. It is so much bigger than our last two apartments. We LOVE it!!
Chris was off track from school this last semester, which was nice.. for him. ha
This last semester kicked my butt! Working 40+ hours a week, while taking 14 credits was ridiculous! But I managed to get really good grades, so it all worked out! Now I am off track until January- Thank goodness!
Things with Chris and I are great! He is working two jobs right now... Seriously that man is a workaholic. He loves it though. Work is going great for me right now too.
Oh, so Chris got a new calling at church... He is now a counselor in the bishopric for a YSA ward here in Rexburg! It is so crazy! We were shocked when he got the calling! He just started, but so far so good! :) I feel like we are that old couple in the singles ward... haha. We actually just had some of the students over for Family Night tonight! It was a lot of fun! Definitely brings back memories from when I was in a singles ward in Arizona! :)

Speaking of Arizona... I am planning a trip there for next month! My best friend comes home from his mission, so I am going to visit! I cannot wait!! :) I haven't been back to Arizona since I graduated in May of last year! Way too long!! I miss all my friends and family there!

So in June was our ONE YEAR wedding anniversary!! So crazy how fast time has flown by. We had such a fun little anniversary trip. We just went down to Salt Lake City, UT and stayed in a super nice hotel for a few nights. Chris seriously spoiled me! It was so nice to get away and just spend a weekend with the two of us. Our hotel was right outside Temple square, so it was way pretty and there were fun little shops and stuff for us to walk around too. One year went so fast, I cant wait for eternity! ;)

Both of our Mom's have come to visit this last month! It was pretty fun! A little crazy with me still in school, but it was nice to see them! :) I seriously miss family so much...
But, I wont be sad for long! because my family is moving to Utah, THIS week! So crazy! I am pretty excited to have them so close though!

Other than all of this, not much more has been going on lately! We are just happy and having such a fun time together! I love my little family :)

Here are some pictures of what we have been up too :)

 This was my Birthday! :) Once again, my hubby spoiled me!

 Bennett asked to take me out for my birthday so we got snow cones. He wants to marry me ;)
 Happy Birthday to me!! haha 21 wahooo ;)
 Chris had an accident! That resulted in 12 stitches and a night at Urgent Care! OUCH!
 We had such a fun 4th of July! :) 'merica!
Rachel and Jordon came to visit! We miss them so much! Wish I got a picture of all four of us!
They need to hurry and move back! :)
 Some of my friends from work! They have become my best friends! :) Love them!
 He's a hottie! ;) I love my best friend <3
 This is when my mama came to visit! Making dessert with my BFF Vanessa! :)
Meet Shayla, one of my Best Friends here in Rexburg! Seriously love this girl to death!
This is my other Best friend, Vanessa! Her and shay are literally my go-to girls! 
We spend our days snap-chatting like crazy and making the best memories :)

Life is great right now! Chris and I are happy as can be, and enjoying our time together! I am so grateful for our family and friends! I am also thankful for this Gospel! We have been working hard to do the best we can. Chris' new calling makes us want to work even harder! I'm excited for the challenge, and way excited for what's to come for our family!! ;) <3

Family Visit! :)

So, I am really not too good at writing on here!
Anyways, I got to see my family!! It has been like nine months since I saw them, so it was amazing!
They had to go down to Utah for a funeral for my dad's uncle. Then on their way back to Seattle they stopped by Rexburg and stayed with us for a night!
We had so much fun! I love my little siblings! I cannot believe how big they are getting!

My little sisters are obsessed with Christopher! He loves having sister-in-law's! 
He says it makes him want to have a little girl ;)

One thing I love about family is that no matter how long it has been since I've seen them, NOTHING has changed! We are all still goofy together! My mom and I didn't stop laughing together that whole night!

My little brother Dakota is getting so grown up. He is seventeen already, and in a little over a year he can go on a mission. Ah, I still cannot believe it! He is such a stud!! :)

Vanessa and Lola were both fighting over who go to sleep with me! Poor Chris got left out. Haha, We took over a hundred pictures just in the short time they were here!

I think one of the highlights of them visiting was my whole family coming to church with Chris and I. It was fast Sunday, so of course, he bore his testimony. It was amazing! He is such a spiritual example to me, and I am lucky to have him as my dad <3

We just bought tickets to fly home and visit in April! We are so excited! :) It will seriously be such a great break, not having to worry about school or work for a week. 
Right when we get back though, we are moving to a new place, then I will be starting school again. Such a busy crazy time, but we couldn't be happier. 

School is going pretty well for both of us right now. We are happy that this semester is almost over. Even though I will be taking a heavier load next semester, it is nice to get this one out of the way because it was our first semester here at BYU-I, so we now have the hang of how things work around here. 

Anyways, That is pretty much all that is going on with us. I need to be better at writing on here and keeping things updated when they happen. Life is just so dang busy. But that's it for now :)

Life as of lately..

Well, things have been CRAZY! :)
Chris and I have been super busy! But things have been going great.
We are finally in the swing of things. With school and work and what not.
So, a few weekends ago I got to go down to Salt Lake to visit my sister Rachel! :)
She was going through a hard time, so I went down there to help her out and keep her company! :)
We had a lot of fun! It was my first time away from Chris since we have been married! :( haha but it went well. I am super thankful that my work was so understanding about me needing to go down there and gave me the time off!
I miss my family SO much, so it was nice to be able to spend some quality time with my big sister! :)

Another crazy thing that recently happened was Christopher having a Soccer accident! He is on an indoor soccer team, and at one of his games him and another player were fighting for the ball. Needless to say, neither of them won. They both kicked for the ball full speed, and ended up on the ground. Chris could barely walk. The next morning we took him to the doctors, and he ended up spraining the inner tendon in his knee, and both inner and outer tendons in his ankle! Poor kid is in a knee brace, and an ankle brace. And also, on crutches! It is crazy realizing how much someone cannot do without both working legs! I for sure realize now how much Chris does for our family! :) 
He is so cute, even as a gimp ;) haha

We are both really enjoying our classes! We really LOVE being at an LDS college. It really makes such a difference. The spirit is so strong, and makes for an amazing learning environment! 

Anyways, we might be moving again soon. Just to a different apartment here in Rexburg. The management spot we are in at our apartment complex is not really working out, and is not really worth it for what we have had, and make and what not. So we are looking at new places for hopefully April! :) We really want to be back by where we used to be (on Pioneer Rd.). Chris wants a 4plex, or even a townhouse instead of a huge complex building. So we will see :) 

Things are going great, and we are so happy!! :)
We are so excited for April, because we finally get to go home and visit our family :) First time since right after we got married! So crazy. 
Well, That is pretty much what has been going on lately! :) I need to be more interesting when blogging, haha but I am still getting the hang of it ;)

Healthy Life, Happy Life

So Chris and I were not good at setting new year resolutions. We actually did not even talk about one. Haha we are kind of lame. Anyways, we have been setting little health goals here and there for ourselves. Chris has become OBSESSED with the gym! haha his new favorite line is, "Do I look Bigger?" I just wink and nod. lol
Being newlyweds, I was all about being a good housewife. I would cook and clean everyday. Good healthy meals. That did not last too long. With both of us being so busy with work and school now, our meals are the last thing on my mind. We began to make the bad habit of just grabbing something on the way home from work. I did not really realize how much we would go out to dinner until I started taking a money management class. Our first class project is to write down EVERYTHING that we spend money on. It was really embarrassing. Costa Vida is making the big bucks off us. haha It made me kind of sick to write all our purchases down. So i decided to get all my healthy (pinterest) recipes, and make a menu. I went shopping, and only got healthy stuff! It felt so good! :) Our new goals are to not eat out as much, only on special occasions, and to be healthy, and get fit. With a little help from my gym fanatic husband, and weight watchers, I think we will be able to stick to our goals.
Another reason we want to be healthy is because we have been talking about starting a family. It wont be for another year or so. But we want to have healthy habits before we start to teach our habits to our little ones. Plus, I want to lose weight before having to gain all that baby weight, which will make it easier to lose it after the baby and what not. Yes, I am baby hungry! But when thinking about actually having a child, I know its best for us to wait. I am not ready for the commitment ;) haha  I just need a dress up doll or something.
Anyways, These are our goals, so I thought I would blog about them, to help us stick to them :)

Starting to Blog!!

So I have a few friends who have asked why I am not blogging.
So here I go!!
Life has been crazy!
Chris and I have now been married for seven months! Time is seriously flying by.
We are learning from each other every day. Sometimes good, sometime... ehhhh ;)
Well as of lately we are just both working full time and in school full time. It is very time consuming, but we like it. I am studying health science and Chris is studying para-medicine. Chris is working as a sales associate at Men's Warehouse. He LOVES getting dressed up everyday. And he loves his discount..... haha
I am working as a Phlebotomist at the Biomat Plasma Center here. I love my job. We have both been blessed with flexible hours, helping us deal with work and school.
We recently moved into another apartment. We are now assistant managers at an apartment complex here in Rexburg. In July we will be the actual managers. It is a super sweet deal because we get free rent, and we are like a foot away from campus. So convenient. 
Anyways, That's an update on us! :)
