It's Gone...

Well I did it. I cut my long, stringy, shedding hair and have beautiful short hair. A co-worker at work suggested her cousin for my haircut. I LOVED HER! She has my business for as long as we are in Utah. If you want her info, I will be gladly to give it to you.
$10 dollars for a FANTASTIC haircut, great conversation with a little boy running around
= worth it!

Pro's to having shorter hair:

  1. Dries W.A.Y. faster
  2. Takes 5 minutes tops to do anything to it. Curl, straight, messy...5 minutes!
  3. My bangs are going to be, but I am not used to them and they make me look like a rocker when they are down. So they are up a lot right not. 
Zac has pointed out to me that I have gone on Pinterest every night for the past 3 days. It just inspires me! I have so many new ideas for my classroom I just want to get started! Why can't I take these 3 weeks off and just enjoy them? I seriously get grumpy at Zac because he gets to go to work and accomplish things. I am a freak! Here are a few things that will be added to either my classroom or apartment... the in-house aids have a lot of work ahead of them (hehehehe)

 The kids laugh at me every time I run into something and say 'ouchie.' Yup, I say 'ouchie' better than saying other words that come to my head first ;D

The last 5 days

I have officially been off track for 5 days now and.. I LOVE it! I don't think I can ever teach at a traditional school...ever. 9 weeks of teaching and 3 weeks off=AMAZING. I feel like I can finally catch up on so many things I have been putting off because of work. Here is what I have caught up on in the past 5 days:

  • Thank you cards- all I need to do is address them and out they go. If I forgot someone... that means you didn't put a card with your gift!
  • Planning the next 9 weeks of work. I have 3 done and I feel awesome! 
  • Went to the temple... best place to go =D
  • Celebrating my mom's birthday (Happy 25th Mom!)
  • Blogged not once, but twice now
  • Went and complained about not being paid from Granite District for the lovely two weeks I worked there
  • Got my diploma from BYU-IDAHO!!! whoop whoop
  • Spent a T.O.N. of time with my new husband... yes, I still like him.

I did accomplish a bunch! Things that are still on the agenda:
  • Taxes
  • Changing my name (annoying)
  • Getting my Utah teaching licenses
  • HAIRCUT! This is what I am thinking....... Yes? No? We'll see. I am sick of the long.

This weekend is going to be jam packed with guests and service. So excited!!!!!
Have a great Thursday!

The last 50 Days

It has been months! Even though I am not a famous blogger I like to think people have been feeling deprived... Who knew that getting married and starting a new job would be so demanding! The past month and half has been a blur, pure bliss and full of stress.  Just as my H.U.S.B.A.N.D! Everyday I am reminded of why I chose him to be mine forever. No one else can handle me and still love me! Needless to say, I done good. We have yet to get the pictures from the photographer, so here are just two that I really liked that my sister snapped of us. 
 I think I should have gone without the flower in my hair. Don't really like it anymore. But whateve! I am not planning on going back and re-doing it again. 
 These are the best siblings in the world. All were present! Just as I wanted. Seriously, family is all you really need. The day was amazing. Sitting across from Zac in the temple is a feeling I will never forget. Those moments made everything worth it. It is amazing how instantly your love deepens after being sealed. More than you thought possible. Getting to spend eternity with this kid is going to be a cinch... well 99% of the time ;D
For those who don't know we got married in the Seattle Temple in the morning and then had both, I repeat BOTH receptions on that day. It was crazy! We were exhausted, tired of smiling and just wanted to be done. Putting my dress on and off got so annoying I now HATE the thing. I got bruises from the dress becoming so tight! It was a great day though. Zac and I are so blessed with all the love and support we received that day and continually. There is nothing like getting money and presents in the mail on random days. 
After the wedding we enjoyed an amazing honeymoon in Vegas! My brother Tim and his wife Sarah treated us to a room at the MGM Grand for two nights. It was so nice to have a break before we had to go back to life. We loved walking down the strip, the food, all the casinos, gondola rides and shopping at the forum and the outlet malls. The weather was great and we had an amazing time! 

Since then....we have made nest in South Salt Lake in a little one bedroom apartment. Zac has been living here since the end of October, but we have not been able to make it ours was 'his'. Here are a few pictures of the place. I love our apartment. It is a perfect size for the two of us!  
 This is the view from when you walk in the front door. You have our dinning room table and the living room is there to the right. We sort of created a New York themed living room.
(zac served his mission there)
 Our hallway from the living/dinning room to the bedroom and the bathroom. The doors on the right are closets. There really is a lot of storage for us to use. 
 Here is the bedroom! Not a whole lot in there, but it is a huge room. We have two closets, one for each of us ;D 
 And the bathroom. Small and green, but I like it. With our schedules we rarely are both in it trying to get ready at the same time. 
And the living room. Yes, we have a fire place... but it is just there for looks, apparently. It was a funny realization. Sorry about the lighting. The flash was not cooperating with me at the time. 

That is it! I love it. I love adding things that make it more and more ours. The only thing I wish for is some color on the walls. But that is the downside of renting. Someday =D


Something fun and exciting has happened in the last twenty four hours. Zac and I are proud new owners of a......
