It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

and I couldn't be more excited. If only I had time to decorate, shop and prepare for the holidays...

Finally....a little more time for the fun stuff!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night. :)

Bite me

So I'm a total Twilight fan. And I don't care what you think about it. I love it. LOVE IT. 

went to the movie at 12:25 last night. Stood in line for an hour and a half. Part of that time being outside. 

So worth it. I loved it. 

Of course the books are way better. 

But I loved the movie too. 

And who came along? Gar! He is the best and was a long for the ride. He even told me this morning "That movie was so good. I've been thinking about it all morning" 

I think he maybe wants to be Edward a little... :) 

Team Edward woot woot.

Yep, I'm that girl.

wild imagination...?

So it's very late right now but I can't sleep because a little after midnight someone knocked, very loudly on our front door! Gar was out and I just froze. I was up studying and my mind tried to be logical before freaking out so I thought it was probably Gar's friend and wife who live in our complex. I texted him and said he better tell me the truth if it was him or not because I was freaked out. He said it wasn't. 

Instantly freaking out a little. I asked them to look out the window (they're apt faces ours) see if they could see anything, they couldn't. So as horrible as I felt about it, I woke Gar up. He had kind of heard it in his sleep anyway so when I woke him up he was awake pretty quick. We were both totally freaked out. After making sure everything was locked and closed and looking out several windows to see if we could see anything. We decided to try to go to bed. 

He's out now. And I still can't sleep. Just as well I guess, since I have a big test tomorrow I need to study for. But It's hard to concentrate now. 

I keep telling myself it was probably nothing, maybe just a wrong door or something, but my crazy imagination keeps scaring me. We are sleeping with the closet light on because I'm such a scaredy cat. 

I think it might have something to do with the fact that I had a few freaky things happen to me and neighbors in college apts when I lived with roomates and it totally reminded me of that. 

Yes, people, even in little Provo, freaky things happen. 

I just wish I could calm down enough to go to sleep. :(

Boo yeah

Me and Gar are finally figuring this blog business out. And, he is actually starting to take an interest. Wahoo. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some awesome husband blogging...maybe.

Any ideas on how center our picture at the top?

Quote of the day

Garret: Ok, Shania Twain's husband is a retard. She still looks fabulous!

Me: Did you just say "she still looks fabulous"...?

Garret: embarrassed giggle.

OH boy.

This sexy beast cleaned the whole house for me today. It doesn't get much better than that.

I am so in love with him (for more reasons than cleaning the house of course). I still get so giddy everytime I see him. There is no one else I would rather spend time with. I couldn't even get mad today when he stole my last piece of Dove dark chocolate (some of my favoritest kind) and ran away cackling like an evil scientist. All I could do was giggle.

Then he tried to vacuum my feet. Ahhhhhh. He's just the cutest thing ever. I never even imagined marriage could be this amazing!

Sometimes, when life is really crazy and you almost don't even have time to breath...

there are those little moments, when something makes you stop for a minute,

just a little one...and you remember to look and see all the countless blessings that surround you,

the tender mercy's you forget to recognize everyday, and your breath catches a little.

I am grateful for these moments...
I am grateful for the life I'm blessed to live.

The real slim shady

Who's that hott black man? Look close. You know her. wink.

Yes my friends, it's true; I am actually blogging about something soon after it happened. The day after in fact!
I had so many ideas for Halloween costumes. I was so excited to do something as a couple. But SOMEONE (cough...Garret...cough) just wouldn't be satisfied with anything. So Halloween day we spent hours shopping for costumes and we just couldn't agree on anything. So this was what we ended up with. At least SOMEONE (cough Garret cough) got their way!
It was fun and I guess I'm glad I finally gave in. It was quite an experience! My own parent's didn't even recognize me! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Oh yea, we were Eminem and the Dr. Dre
