celebrating 2 years of marriage

To celebrate 2 years of marriage we mostly stayed in our little apartment.
Ammon has a microbiology final tomorrow and a physiology final on Wednesday, thus leaving us with very little free time today. (I am seriously so impressed with the dedication he puts into schooling.)

The highlights of our anniversary include a hearty breakfast of eggs, sausage, toast, and hash-browns, watching Malcolm in the Middle together, dinner at Carraba's and a music video! It isn't much, but we're perfectly okay saving the celebrating for Disneyland. (only 20 more days!)

And here is the music video!
(It's set on private. Send me your email if you want to be added to the list.)

a new look

I redesigned my blog today! 
I am in love with the colors and the overall look.

Here's what it looks like:
what do you think?

Another new look includes my hair. 
Lately I've been parting it down the middle.

 It takes more effort to part it down the middle, so we'll see how long it lasts. 
But so far I am loving it! 

numbers and pictures

Sometimes I like summing up my life using numbers and pictures.

[five] more days until I officially graduate
[one] more day until my [two] year anniversary
[twenty-seven] more days until Ammon and I leave for a much-needed [ten] day vacation.
[ninety-nine] percent done with college
[one-hundred] percent excited for my new job teaching [four]th graders

Life is good. 

Here's a little bit of what we've been up to:

Pigs in a blanket! When was the last time you had those!? It had been a long time for us too.

a very special day

Today was a very special day. 
My brother Ryan was sealed to my family.
And my brother Taylor entered the MTC to serve a full time LDS mission.
Before Taylor left for the MTC, I tried to spend as much time with him as I could. 

On Monday we hiked the Y.

Daniel was struggling, but we were able to encourage him to keep going

We made it! 

On Tuesday we went and saw the Lego movie because Taylor hadn't seen it yet. It was my second time. I love that movie! 

After the Lego movie, we went to J Dawgs. 

Then back to my place to play chess. Taylor won. (I stink at chess.)

That night Taylor was set apart as a missionary. My good friend Rachelle and Ammon's brother Nephi were there, as well as the rest of my family. Taylor's stake president shared some sound advice and the spirit was very present. I was hit with emotion that this was really happening! My brother was going to be a missionary!

Today was perfect. 
I have a testimony that it is in God's temple that families can be sealed together forever. 
I've been singing those lyrics since I was a child, but today I really felt it. 
Ryan was literally shouting for joy the moment he was sealed to us.
I love moments like today because it always brings my family closer together. 

After the sealing we went to Kneaders for all you can eat french toast. 

Then we went to the BYU art museum. 

We're in love.

It was here that Ammon and I had to say our goodbyes. Only 1 car per MTC drop-off and there wasn't enough room for us. 

Haha! Okay, the last 2 pictures were actually staged. I didn't cry when we said our goodbyes. I was surprisingly very happy and excited for him. Don't get me wrong, 2 years is a very long time and I'm going to miss him like crazy! But I'm more proud than anything. 

I'll see you in two little brother!

Taylor was called to serve in the Kennewick Washington mission.
