friday when i got home from work, we celebrated our anniversary with 5 guys, a milkshake, and almost getting in a car wreck (jordan pulled out to turn left and realized after the fact that there was a median. hello driving into oncoming traffic. luckily we were able to turn off the road to safety quick.) jordan had originally made reservations at a nice restaurant, but i told him that we could go a little simpler. plus if we're going to eat out, i want it to be GOOD. the nice place he originally wanted to go to serves heath conscience food. ha! those are sometimes my favorite nights--where we do something simple, but it is SO FUN. we have a blast together!

jordan was sick all last week, so he decided saturday was going to be 'get on top of things' day. he hadn't been working out or staying on top of his homework, so saturday we got up, killed ourselves at the gym (this power pump teacher on saturday morning kills me. it's so hard i start to feel nauseous.)  cleaned the house, did the laundry, did homework, and grocery shopped. sometimes i need a nap at the end of saturdays! it's so busy! we were supposed to get together with some family, but it fell through so we went out to some hole in the wall chinese/vietnamese restaurant with kayla and alex, i begged jordan until he took me to krispy kreme, (whaaaa? you're out of originals?) and we watched SNL with friends.

disgusting daylight savings was sunday, but it made up for itself by being a beautiful 60 degrees and sunny! the second we got home from church, we changed and bolted outside for a walk in the sun.

there is something to be said for those first few weeks of spring, after being cooped up inside for the last 5 months of cold and snow. it's so promising to know that soon you won't have to turn on the heat in your car before you go to work, or that you can walk to the grocery store. beautiful sunshine.

what a good sport. i love this guy!!

March 6, 2013

almost 6 months.

the day after tomorrow is jordan and i's SIX MONTH anniversary. six months! i feel like our relationship has changed so much in that time. i literally feel like i love him a thousand times more than i did the day we got married. i have turned into the girl that always wants to cuddle, gives constant cheek-kisses, and tells her husband she loves him about 17 million times a day. i kind of disgust myself, but's how i feel. my capacity to love him has grown and i desire to serve him, to be a good wife, and to make him happy more each day. some of my favorite memories (or maybe just some memorable moments) from the past 6 months include:

--our toilet overflowing. frantically grabbing all the towels we own (6) to try and stop it from reaching the carpet.

--our neighbor backing into our window & breaking it during the middle of night! i have never seen jordan so furious. luckily the guy didn't see jordan flip him off as we walked away. i think.

--the weekend we spent at jordan's cabin with his family in wyoming. we shot guns, made hunger games arenas for insects, played card games, and laughed a lot.

--walking in on jordan singing along to his favorite song in bed, doing actions, without a shirt on.

--spending a relazing evening at sundance walking around, taking pictures, and talking about life.

--getting a flat tire in the middle of a snowstorm.

--sneaking taco bell into the midnight premire of breaking dawn and just laughing at all the twi-hards.

--spending an entire evening stalking wierdos on craigslist, and simultaneously agreeing to lock our door nightly.

--spending our first couple of nights in the apartment without any electricity, and jumping like excited little monkeys when our lights came on for the first time!

--showing a little PDA in the grocery story one night, when a little girl sitting in her cart points and us and yells, "YOU KISSERS!"

can't wait for the next 6 months. i love you, baby!

my wonderful family & the comedy club

my family came to visit this weekend! (both sides, lucky me!) thursday night, jordan's parents were in town. i skipped a few classes & they took us out to brick oven. after jordan took me back to class, they took jordan to costco and bought us a butt-load of groceries. in their mind's, this is probably a small little way of helping but i am SO GRATEFUL. just knowing that there are 2 giant boxes of honey nut cheerios in our cupboard, and a lifetime supply of protein powder on top of our fridge from them gives me warm fuzzies. it's nice to have generous in-laws.

friday morning after i got ready my family showed up at our doorstep! (and my mom, being the wonderful homemaker she is, brought us ready-made freezer meals. it's about to overflow!) we went out to zupas as sisters, explored the BYU museum of art, and I made everyone try out the awful waffle. Jordan met up with us after classes and we all enjoyed Nickelcade (Jordan's favorite) together.

i really love being with my sisters!

mis spent the night with us friday, which is becoming a tradition that i love! saturday she accompanied us to costco and then i curled her hair and put make up on her for her dance competition! (she is amazingly precise, it blows me away.) we enjoyed some IHOP with my family and then said our goodbye's. i always miss my family more after they leave, it's weird. i felt the sting on sunday night.

we went to comedy sportz for a 10:15 show with alex, kayla, and their friends ali and brady. i didn't really have any expectations in my mind, but it was so good, clean, and hilarious. we were all literally rolling on the floor and different points. i love silly, stupid, random humor. we will be going back.
