Nate here... so over Thanksgiving break I read the book Twilight. For those of you that don't really know me or just kind of know me (probably through my wife) you're probably thinking "that's kind of a girly book, why would he read that?" But for those of you that know me better are probably thinking "wow! He read a book? The last book he finished was Calvin and Hobbes.
Nice work!" (other than Ryan Olk, who's thoughts and comments can stay to himself) To the first group I would say, Hey don't judge. It's a good book. To the second group, thank you.
I'm proud to have actually read a book. So... now i'm a blogger and a reader. Two things I never thought would happen....
Thanksgiving pictures to come soon!

Utah trip and the BYU game.

So we went to Utah this last weekend to get snow tires for the car... although that didn't really work out. But we did get to go to costco, which we love and see my sister Kristen and her husband Dave. Even though the main reason we went down there didn't work out, it was a lot of fun to see Dave and Kristen and go to the BYU game, even though as my dad reminded me... I'm not a BYU fan. He was mad that I got to go and he, a true fan, didn't. Anyways, here are a few pictures.

From right to left, me, Dave and his friend. I should remember his name, I've met him a few times... sorry. Yes, I did wear my FLORIDA GATORS hat to the game. I don't think to many people noticed since it's blue.

My gorgeous wife Ashley and beautiful sister Kristen.

AND I have added NEW MUSIC to the page. I'm sure I'll add more later.

A promise is a promise, happy birthrday Kristin!

For Kristin's birthday she wanted me to put up a picture
of me working at the potato factory\farm place. I tried to
lookas happy as I could. It wasn't that bad... college jobs
are learning experiences. 3 posts in one day, I'm officially
a "blogger."

Old rooms...

I was going to upload pictures to show what the walls used to look like, however you can see those below. The blue and green were just a little too "bold" for us. Oh... and new music will be coming to the blog soon, I promise you=-)

Wow, what a great job you guys did painting!

My hot babe painting in my painting clothes=-)
She looks better than I do in them.

Yes... those are official painting pants.

New bedroom! No blue wall.

Shows the color better.

New office\2nd bedroom. The spot is not on the wall,
it was on the camera.

Wedding Slide Show

I posted a slide show of some of our wedding pictures...finally! It's at the bottom page of our blog if you want to take a look at it! I didn't include a picture of all our family and friends that came to the temple/luncheon the day we got married, and I feel that I should! It meant a lot to us!

Life As We Know It

So I've been waiting to blog about some exciting event in our lives here in Rexburg... something "blog worthy". I was thinking about something like "We BOTH have jobs"! No, hasn't happened... Luckily, Nate has a job! Nate started training this week so everyday I drop him off a eleven and pick him up at three. I won't go into the details of what he does there, because I don't really know what he does there. Something about working with a law firm and fixing people's credit. He is on the phone most of the time though. Today he actually starts working with people on the phone, so good luck babe! Next week he officially starts working full time from six to two. He's not so thrilled about the early mornings... As for me, I spend my time at home usually. Since we've been here life for me has been like this: send in my resume, wait a few days to hear back from them, go to an interview, don't get the job. This process has been really hard on me of course and it has been difficult for me to stay positive. FYI don't come to Rexburg if you need a job... just kidding, but seriously. I'm still looking and hoping that eventually I get hired somewhere.
Leaving the job topic, we started school this week! I'm taking four night classes and Nate is taking two. I'll be busy studying Psychology, Family History, Sociology, and Anatomy while Nate is studying Book of Mormon and Literature! We have very interesting class schedules since we're taking night classes. Two of my classes are once a week from seven to ten, one is twice a week only one hour long, and the other class is also once a week from five to nine! Intense, huh! We're just glad we're able to take a few classes.
My blogging time is up and I better go work on some Thank You letters... if you're expecting one you'll get yours soon! Lots of diligence and hard work go into those... :D

Cribs: The Wilkinsons

Hey everyone!
Now that we have internet we're starting our blog, and hopefully we can keep everyone informed about our lives in Rexburg. Lately we've just been unpacking and decorating our house, although things probably will change and be moved around quite often. We've been having lots of fun together decorating and organizing this place into OUR home! Things aren't done completely, but we wanted to share pictures of our house with family and friends that live far away and aren't able to come visit us!
Enjoy the tour!

We'll start off with our room, where the magic happens....
okay we had to say that line.
This is the closet in our room, but overall it's Ashley's.

This is Nate's closet...
in the spare bedroom.

This is the messy, still unorganized spare bedroom.
AKA the office.
Available for visitors!

This is our awesome bathroom!
Chloe loves it very much.

The awesome and wonderful Nate!

Here's the view of downstairs.

Our entertainment system.

We love our living room...and rockband too.
That is the drum set, for those who aren't
familiar with rockband.

Chloe's can't see the litter box.

Our beautiful table in our dinning room.

Caught in the act! Nate tried to out smart Chloe
by putting his cup on top of the refrigerator.
Cups left alone are no longer safe anywhere but the cabinets.

This is Chloe's favorite spot...the sink.

Where the magic really does happen.

I'm sure you are disappointed that there are no pictures of our "rides". Check back often.
-Nate & Ash
