Long Weekend

This weekend has been a long fun weekend! First off it's labor day weekend and so both Tom and I have Monday off. ALSO, Tom's parents came into town and stayed for the weekend. We had tons of fun going out to eat on friday when they arrived. We went to Texas Roadhouse (my favorite!) and got some yummy burgers and steaks and the loaded mashed potatoes, and not to mention... the best... THE ROLLS! oh I can taste them right now.

On Saturday we all took our time to wake up after a long night and we went out to eat at Frontier Pies before kaylee had to go to work. We ate and then decided to take a drive down to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The drive was really pretty and when we got down there we took a look around the town and went to the candy shop and bought some chocolate, fudge and the best caramel popcorn. It was very yummy. We just stayed for a little while and I'm mad we didn't bring a camera. We drove back and just relaxed. When we got home, we all watched the movie 'What Happens in Vegas' then went to sleep. We were all very very tired. This morning we got up early and had breakfast at Julie and Kaylee's apartment and just hung around. Tom's parents then had to head off for a long drive back to Oregon so it was sad that they couldnt stay longer. We had ton's of fun though and this sunday has been very relaxing. (not to mention, our ward has been changed from 1:30 to 11:15 so we are happy)

Tomorrow both Tom and I have the day off so we were planning to go to the Eastern Idaho State Fair but it plans to rain ALL week which makes me annoyed because although I want rain, Ive been looking forward to this fair! We're gonna go to Idaho Falls to go get some pants for me since I can't fit into any of mine and they're all getting holes in them. I'm excited to buy pants that I can actually sit in!

I also start working in my new room at the preschool. Ill be teaching in the 'Nursery' where it's the toddlers who come right from the infant room. It will be a very interesting experience to transition a few kids at a time from the infant room (where they nap and get bottles whenever they want) to this room (one nap a day and sippy cups and no binkis). Hopefully it will be a good experience for when I have to have my own kids. My shift will be a very different one for me, ill be working from 6 am to about 12:30-1pm whenever the kids fall asleep. Itll be nice to come home and relax for the whole afternoon. Lets just hope i don't get super crabby (when im tired, i get crabby) and take it out on Tom.

Im just excited to have been able to spend so much time with Tom since he usually works saturdays. We only have one week till we head down to Utah to spend a few days with my sister Jody and Alex (my brother in law) who we haven't seen ALL summer and then head out to Mexico!

Oh... PS. I forgot to mention. I FAILED at the whole soda thing> I dont think i can do it until Im off this Birth Control... and besides.. ALL THE DRINKS in mexico for FREE?? Yeah, maybe ill wait till AFTER mexico.... maybe.

what a POOPY day... literally.

So, I work at Apple Tree Learning Ctr. here in Rexburg Idaho. This past week I've been working in the toddler room in the mornings, and then in the afternoons I go over to the preschool side. After We combined children together, I went to let another co-worker leave and took over her class. We're playing outside and it was all nice and going well.... then I heard a kid yell... 'SOMEONE POOPED!'... i figured, oh it's just goose poop. As I had over towards the swings, I see it. Someone had pooped on the playground (now this isn't so uncommon, it happened last week but the mother found out and cleaned it herself... ) I figured it couldnt be an animal because the playground is fenced in. So, I go inside to ask the director what I should do and she stated back..'gloves are in the kitchen'. ick.... I put on the gloves and and got a plastic bag and cleaned it up. Lets just say I was highly disgusted and felt like I was cleaning up dog poop.

honestly, what child goes and takes a poop in the middle of the playground? The least they could do is go to the corner of the playground far away and do it behind the bushes... NOT infront of the swings. (im just glad nobody stepped in it)

don't you all wish you had my job??

maybe we should start ordering some of these for outside:

4 Months

Just thought I would say that Tom and I have been married for 4 months now. Although, I must say, I feel like we've been married a LOT longer then that.

I guess I'll share how we met, but its not that great of a story. We just met up here at school at BYU-Idaho and we were in the same ward. I will admit. I liked him when I first saw him but we ended up just staying friends for that whole semester while we dated other people and what not. We started dating (it took him a little while longer to finally realize he liked me) when I moved down to Salt Lake for the fall semester I was wondering why I moved down there, previously, I knew it was the right thing to do after praying about it and jobs/housing fell right into place. I knew i was supposed to be down there for a reason but I felt so lost after things weren't going the right way. So when Tom came down a few weekends and let me know how he felt (i give him kudos for that, he had some serious guts to just let out how he felt) Well I wasnt sure if I still wanted to date him .But while he was still up in Rexburg, I went up to visit and knew that I liked him all over again (like the first time we met, i know, it sounds cheeeesey). We dated while we were away from eachother but tried to visit as much as we could. I guess I believe that he was the reason for me living in Salt Lake that fall. We got engaged pretty much right after I got back to rexburg for Winter semester. I knew he asked my dad at Dave (tom's cousin) and Emily's (my friend from back home i grew up with) wedding [small world]. I wasn't sure when it was going to happen but definitely sooner than later. I remember when we first started dating dave and emily were all saying we needed to get engaged at christmas and his parents were jokingly(ill say half jokingly) telling us to get married (haha, they crack me up!) But i told him I would never say yes if he asked me that soon. I am... or should i say WAS one of those people who had a timeline of how long to date...

but basically we got engaged Jan 11 and then got married April 19th in the Washington D.C Temple. By that time we had known each other for about exactly a year and we thought about it and we got married exactly 6 months after our very first date. All I know is that I'm glad things turned out the way they did and I love being married. I say we make a pretty good couple ; )

Caving In...

Tom doesn't know it yet that I have created this blog. Out of boredom of going through everyone else's blogs after FINALLY finishing the 4th Twilight book, I decided that who cares if we don't have a baby, we'll have a blog.(many people believe that in order to have a blog, you should have a baby) I figured that when we do have a kid, I won't have to go through the trouble of making a blog. So there is my justification of making this blog, I've always secretly wanted one.

I would go on writing about how we met and all that lovey dovey stuff, but ill save that for another day.... or when enough people actually look at this = )

But I will say for now is that Tom is still working at the Tire Factory here in Rexburg and I have been working at a preschool/daycare for a couple of weeks right now. I can't say I am enjoying it as much as I have at the previous preschool's I have been at but I definetly like the people I work with. Right now we both are off track for the fall so we'll be working full time. Right now for a few more weeks I am only part time and being a sub, and then I will be either a full time 3 year old preschool teacher or a toddler teacher (although I want to be in the infant room) But I will take what I can get.

And not to mention, a good vacation is deserved... therefore we are going on our delayed honeymoon in exactly 24 days till we leave for MEXICO! We're going to an all inclusive resort. We are rather excited. That is the resort we're going to.. Grand CoCo Bay!
