Black Friday

Yeah, we participated and scored all of these!

Holiday Stationary!

Christmas time is here! I love this season and sharing it with family and friends! What’s a better way to share it with everyone than Christmas cards?! I love sending and receiving Christmas cards during this time. I think it’s one of the most popular traditions. Shutterfly has some of the cutest Christmas card options! Plus they have something for everyone’s taste with 800+ options. I’ve spent a lot of time on their website admiring all of their designs J This year their doing a promotion where you can get 50 cards of your choice free for a blog post, so of course I’m jumping on that amazing deal! They have so many cute designs that it was extremely hard for me to decide on just one favorite. In their Christmas photo card section I really liked Laced With Love. I liked how it was elegant, simple, and unique all at the same time. Perfect for me! In their holiday cards section I really loved Holiday Love Sketch Christmas. I loved the different lettering used on it. They had some gorgeous holiday invitations also if you’re planning on hosting a party this season. My favorite was Elegant Flourish Noir Christmas Invitation. Black and white…love it! Everyone should check shutterfly out! They have great deals and ship their merchandise off extremely fast! (We already ordered some J) Here is the link to their promotion!

I'm pretty sure no one reads my boring posts, so I feel that I can put anything up here. Throughout the 2+ years that we have been married I have learned that Nate has become entitled to all of my crap and vice versa. However, I'm not really interested in his xbox and FUN video games. I've had a twin brother my whole life, so you'd think I'd be use to sharing. Not really, he always had his own stuff, I had my own. Now is the time that I've been learning about full-on sharing. I'm not liking it so much. I want to work out...he has my IPod so I can't listen to music. For those of you who think this is not needed, IT IS. I need music to work out. Period. I want to go somewhere...he has the car at school. So basically, this is me ranting. I was thinking though, is everything his for the taking now though??? Hmmm, tampons. I still have claim to my dear, dear tampons. So I can be frustrated that nothing is no longer "mine" or I can embrace the fact that I still have my tampons. And to end this ingenious thought, I will leave you with a picture of my favorite tampons. :)

California Dream

This past weekend Nate and I were able to go to California for my brother's wedding! I still can't believe he got married! I now have another gorgeous sister! They got married in La Jolla on the beach. It was absolutely stunning. It was great to see all of my family and get a vacation in California also. It was really hard to come back to Rexburg after being in California where the weather is perfect. Nate and I are starting are savings account so that we can live there someday :) Here are some pictures from the beautiful day.

Happy Birthday Hott Mama!

A few weeks ago I was able to go to AZ (FINALLY!) for my mom's big birthday! I booked my flight in May, and decided that I would surprise her. It was a complete success, and I totally shocked her! Here are some pictures from her big bash.

Meet Tebow

Here's the newest addition to our family. His name is Tebow (Nate named him) and he's about 16 weeks old now. He is the sweetest kitten I have ever met. He's always purring and loves to cuddle. The first night we brought him home he laid in Nate's nap for an hour purring. I found him outside my work on Friday. He had been there all day, and whenever someone would open the door he would run up to the person leaving and rubbed up against their leg and try to get some lovin'. I have a really hard time seeing stray, unloved animals and to add this was a kitten! We've been looking to see if he has any owners, but none yet. So it's official, he's part of the family now. Chloe now has a buddy to play with, and they're best buds now.

What's New

Recently, I have encountered what it really means to be working. I am now working two jobs which amounts up to 40+ hours a week. I've always had a job, but worked part time. Now since I'm out of school I figured that I have all this free time, so why not work as much as I can! I'm working at Jimmy John's which is a fast paced sandwich shop and at Heritage Homes which is an assisted living home. I work as a care taker there, and there are about seven residents living there. I really do love both jobs, which are completely different! The job at the assisted living home will really help me pursue a career in the health care field. It's great experience for me. I'm also starting up CNA school next week. I'm staying busy and loving life as a college grad!

My days are less eventful. I still work on campus doing early morning custodial (I start at 3:30...) and so then I come home and try to sleep for a while. Aside from that I try to do most of the house cleaning since Ashley works so much. Since school ended we've been trying to work out to get back in shape, last semester was a bit busy so we didn't get to go to the gym as much as we'd like to. Anyways, my life is fairly uneventful. I work, sleep, clean, read and I'm thinking about playing the wii.. but never get around to it. We are watching Lost... Ashley has never seen most of it and so we have started from the first season on netflix and are now on season 3. I'll maybe write again if I ever do something eventful.

Another Thing...

We celebrated in Park City with an awesome sombrero

Playing Catch Up!

So I haven't blogged in awhile and A LOT has happened! First of all, I graduated!! I now have my Bachelor's of Science degree. Time is so weird! I remember sitting in my elementary cafeteria when my mom would bring me and my brother lunch and her telling all of us that we have to go to college. She was the cool mom, well still is. Well I did it! I'm not finished either! Now I only have two more years of school to officially become a PHYSICIAN'S ASSISTANT! By the way, I think that title is so should be Assistant Physician for all that they do. Anyway, I cannot wait.

My parents were able to come up for my graduation and Nate and I were able to spend some time with them finally! It sucks only being able to see them like every six months! We had a lot of fun with them, for what little time we had. We went to Yellowstone on Saturday and drove around. My parents were even able to see Old Faithful!

Now Nate is on his seven week break in between semesters. We're just waiting for his LAST semester to start! I can't believe that we only have one more semester here in Rexburg. It's bitter sweet. We will miss this place, but you probably won't hear me saying that come winter time when we move...hopefully!

I just got a job, and completed my first week. SO glad that is over, I don't like first weeks. I like when I actually know what I'm doing. I also got offered an internship for this fall, which will fulfill my last requirement for my degree. If I won't be staying busy enough, I'll also be taking a CNA (Certified Nurse's Assistant) class this fall so I can get a job doing that in between graduate school. I've also been shadowing a P.A. here in Rexburg and LOVE every minute of it! If you can't tell, I'm so excited for mine and Nate's future! We're also studying for the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) which we have to take in order to apply for grad school. So I thought I was going to get a vacation after graduation, but NOPE! We're staying busy. Busy is good!

Play Time!

This semester we have actually had the weekends to play...instead of spending them in the testing center. The weather is beautiful now, so we try and spend as much time as we can outside! Here's some pictures of our recent outing.

Happy New Year everyone! We're very very very excited for this year and all that it will bring! Nate and I are back in school and doing homework already!! Crazy, I know! We both are working and taking classes this semester. Luckily, we have two classes together so we get to work together in those classes.

We're really excited for this year because this is the year we'll graduate and get our bachelor's!! I'll graduate in July and Nate will graduate in December. Who knows what is in store for us after that point! Another adventure with grad school most likely. Also, my brother just got engaged so he and his fiancee Jen are getting married in October! I have another niece on the way too to arrive in March! So as you can see it's going to be an eventful year! This is the year that Nate will turn the big 2-5. I know, he's really that old. Good thing he doesn't look like it :) First though, we'll celebrate my birthday!! Woohoo, can't wait! Presents!!!
