Well, Brad and I have been making an effort to get out of the apartment more.
Well, I'VE been making more of an effort anyways, with objections from Brad.
But anyway, I just don't want to get apartment fever.

Other than normal shopping at the grocery store or having to buy random things from the drugstore, we hadn't been doing anything at all.
However, a couple nights ago, I told Brad we should go out for dinner, so we went to Craigos.
It was pretty good, but there's not as much crust as there used to be (economy?) so it wasn't as tasty in my opinion.
Still nice to actually go somewhere and sit down and eat food without the TV on in front of us.

My brother asked if we wanted to go out and play racquetball yesterday, but Brad didn't want to, so we didn't.
But today my brother called again, so after my visiting teachers came over, my brother came by to pick us up and we went ice skating.
I love ice skating!!
Then we went back to my brother's apartment, made sushi, and played some Wii.

We should be going to the movies soon too.
Yes, Man.
Hopefully it's funny.
Anyway, that's just a little quick update for now.
Once I clean up our bedroom, i'll take some pictures of our apartment and put them up on here.

I know, I know.
It's been a LONG time since i've really update on here.
Even my husband has updated more recently than me!

Anyway, both the wedding and the reception went well.
It was a little chilly and windy on our wedding day, but there was nothing that could get me down.
There is no doubt that it was the happiest day of my life thus far.
We stayed in Vegas for a couple days in my parents timeshare.
I love the penthouses there. :)
Yay for jacuzzi's on the balcony.
Anyway, then we went down and stayed at my parents for a few days until the reception the following saturday.
It was nice to see a lot of my relatives that I haven't seen in a long time.
We got some sweet gifts (we still need to send out thank you cards :/ ).
Now we're all moved in up in Rexburg, for the most part anyways.
We've still got a few things to finish unpacking and put away which for now are stacked in the living room closet, but we'll get it done soon.
Our ward seems pretty good and the bishop seems like a nice guy.
We haven't really hung out with anyone yet, so sorry to all our friends out there!
We're just relaxing for a bit after months of wedding madness.
Well, we're going to the temple later today and life is good.

I was going to include some photos in here, but they're all on my facebook, so why bother?
I will post soon about our apartment though.
As soon as we put all the finishing touches on everything, i'll take some pictures and I WILL post them on here.

I realize...

...that I should probably post about the wedding first, but since Jenna tagged me, i'll just get that done.

1. Where did you meet your husband?
Well, I was sitting in the living room of my apartment at Legacy Ridge with some of my roommates when there was a knock on the door. It was this super geeky looking guy from the ward who came to set up appointments with the bishop for us since we had callings. Then of course Ana, my incredibly...outgoing... roommate asked him where he went on his mission and he said Riverside, California, and I started freaking out because that's the mission I live in, etc... Then I got called to do the ward bulletin, and since Brad was the Executive Secretary, he had been doing it, so he "trained" me on how to do it, and since I had to be there freaking early in the morning and Church wasn't until 1, Brad and I would just hang out and play Sudoku after the bulletin was done.

2. How long did you date before you got married?
Like 6 months?

3. How long have you been married?
About 4 days!

4. What does he do to surprise you?
I dunno. He doesn't surprise me that often. He's not creative enough. Haha! I love you Brad!

5. What is your favorite feature of his?
Probably his gorgeous blue eyes. I could look into them forever. And I do. All the time. Haha.

6.What is your favorite quality?
He's so relaxed and easy-going! Even though it can be a little frustrating when he can never think of anything to do, it's still nice that we never fight or get too stressed about anything!

7. Does he have a nickname for you?
Not really. Maybe later.

8. What is his favorite food?
I don't think he has an actual favorite. I know he likes Salmon. Lol. And pasta. Pizza. You know, basic yummy foods like that.

9. What is his favorite sport?
Probably golf.

10. When and where did you first kiss?
I honestly don't remember the actual day! Lol.
I know it was in June sometime, a couple weeks after we started "dating." It was on my couch in the living room though. We were cuddling and he said "Would it be awkward if I kissed you?" and I leaned in and laid one on him in response.

11. What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?
Just sit around and hold each other. I know, we're so sickeningly sweet. I think some people perceive us as boring when we just sit and do nothing, but we thoroughly enjoy it!

12. Do you have children?
Not yet! Soon I hope!

13. Does he have any hidden talents?
He doesn't really hide his talents.

14. How old is he?
OLD! Haha. He's 24, turning 25 in March.

15. Who said I love you first?
He did. And I lied and said it back. At the time, I didn't even really have those kind of feelings for him at all honestly! I felt so horrible for lying, so I told him the truth, and then a couple weeks later, I realized that I DID love him, so I told him. :)

16. What is his favorite music?
He likes a variety, like me.

17. What do you admire most about him?
He's the most caring man I know. Seriously.

18. What is his favorite color?
If he had to choose, it would be blue.

19. Will he read this?

20. People I tag...
Laura Long, Sara Kofoed, and I don't really know any other married people who blog!

Happy New Year takes on a whole new meaning...

Today is the first day of 2009, and it seriously still feels like 2007!
I can't believe how fast the past couple years of my life has gone by!
It's weird to imagine what happened even just one year ago.
My last new year was not a happy memory, and I feel like i've become a completely different person since then.
What's weirder is thinking about two new years ago.
Funny how I was in basically the same situation.
And yet, here I am, January 1st 2009, and I don't even know who I was back then.
I know most of it is because of Brad.
He makes me want to be so much better, and I am more and more happy with my life and with who I am every single day.
And with Brad and my wedding just two days away, I know that this year will be the best i've had so far.
And I can't even imagine how much more i'm going to progress.

Nothing seems planned at all for the actual wedding day, and i'm starting to freak out a little bit about it.
I'm sure everything will work out just fine, but in the meantime it's pretty stressful.
Especially since we've 2 days left, and on plans for what's going on before I need to be at the temple at 12.
What everyone will do until the actual sealing ceremony at 3:30.
What we're going to be doing after the ceremony.
Will there be a dinner?
Who will be taking pictures?
When is everyone leaving?
Who all is even coming?
The worst part is that i've got so many people asking me these questions over and over again, but I don't have any answers!
So stop asking please!
