Blessing in Disguise

We have news.... We're....... MOVING! We were planning on moving into Nate's brother Morgans basement apartment coming this fall. Everything was planned and in the process of being ready. Well things change and we had to make other arrangements.So we just bought our VERY OWN PLACE in OREM. I am not going to lie i was kind of upset when our plans fell through we didn't have much time to figure out something else. But it has turned into a blessing we weren't expecting ( not that you ever really expect blessings but that's not the point) It at happened super quick, my brother AJ heard we were looking for something and started calling around before i knew it i had several phone numbers in my possession of people who i needed to call. One stood out most of all to us so we called up the lady and she said that she was selling it first come first serve which made us super nervous because our lease at Pleasant Spring.. ( evil apartment place) was not up until October and its still AUGUST.. Thankfully everything fell into place because a week later we were holding the keys to our very own place! We immediately ( literally the night we got the keys) started painting the master bedroom, i have been wanting to paint since our very first place but it makes NO SENSE to paint a rental! The place was in great condition and has good paint already so really it was just because i wanted to. There was only a small amount of touch up paint that needed to be done. We got the carpets cleaned a few days later and then got some smelly goods in there because it smelt like an old lady.. and not in the good way.
We had talked to our apartment manager and asked if we could move out and we would continue to pay until a new renter moved in and she told us that was not an option.. LAME!!  Then three weeks later Nate went in basically asking the same thing just in boy terms and she told us just to move out as quickly as possible and when someone moves in the contract will be broke! OMG is that not what i wanted three weeks ago?!! I feel like that is VERY sexist! So long story short i walked in the door and we instantly start packing! We started Friday afternoon with the assistance of Nate's little brother Michael. We got all the big stuff over and finished that night. Then Saturday i had to work so my sweet husband moved the majority of the stuff over by himself!
Unpacking did not go nearly as quickly as it did in our other moves we learned we have little to no drawers ANYWHERE! So we still have random who knows boxes that we will dissolve eventually.

The new place is coming together quite nicely. I will be excited when the decorating is finish or at least in the works so that it feels more homey. 

Here is a PREVIEW

Our 3rd Anniversary

We did our yearly St George trip a little differently this year! We still did the usual dinner in Beaver on our way down ( even though we did try a different place this year) But we did not stay in a hotel in St George we stayed at the Family Cabin instead with Austin and Larissa. They didn't come down until Friday after work so Nate and i had the day to ourselves which was full of fishing ( for Nate) and nap time. We finally got up and headed to St George around 2. We spent time doing some shopping at our favorite places and had the usual dinner at the Samuri 21. We had some time to kill before our show started so i got a pedicure and Nate got some ice cream. Our show this year was Aladdin which we were VERY excited for! Sadly it did not compare to the two previous years, which was a bummer. Driving back to the cabin that night instead of just driving ten minutes to the hotel was an adjustment i think i like being closer. Saturday morning the boys went fishing ( of coarse) and Larissa and I went and got massages! We ate dinner that this DELICIOUS steak house that's up Cedar Canyon. All in all it was a great trip but i did miss some of our usual's like the SWIMMING POOL in St George. NEXT year will be great the show we will see is Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat!  You cant go wrong with a Joseph.

We have officially been married 3 years!

Nate took the day off and surprised me at work with lunch and GORGEOUS flowers. We had a pretty low key night which was exactly what we needed! We had a divine dinner at Ruby River and did a little shopping, and spent the rest of the night cuddling watching TV my favorite :)   Its kinda weird to think its already been 3 years, but at the same time i can also say its strange that its only been 3 years. Nate has definitely become my best friend in our time together and i am so grateful for him.

Death by Pickle Juice

I got myself a new kindle touch!!
My old Kindle died.. I was eating my lunch at work and dropped a TINY bit of pickle juice on it and like 5 minutes later it started FREAKING out! Couple minutes after that i had no controls! I fought with it on and off for about a day before i had completely had my fill!! My poor husband had to watch my melt down ( it had been a bad day) so i went and bought the physical copy of the book i was reading and figured that would tie me over but i missed having my kindle its so much easier and lighter. We went to Walmart and they were SOLD OUT! So we tried another Walmart SAME STORY... really? :( Tried OUT OF STOCK ( not sure if returning STOCK) WHAT THE CRAP!!! Come to find out its because the next generation is about to come out.. LAME i just wanted a basic KINDLE! So we found one on ebay. Happy Anniversary to ME!!!
