Home Sweet Home!

So tonight Ryan and I went over our plans for Thanksgiving and going home! I'm so excited to go home and be with our families.  I'm going home on November 7 which is during finals week so I can't be here to be around while Ryan is trying to study.  So I'm going to be home with my family for a week and I'm so so excited.  It's so nuts how home sick I really get even when I see my mom and dad like once a month!  It feels like I haven't seen anyone since the summer. 
Ryan is coming home the week after and we are going to stay at his parents house for thanksgiving week.  I'm really excited for all the festivities that will be going on during our break.  His sister is getting married on the 18th and my cousin is getting married the 20th.  I can't wait!
We are so excited for all the family things that are coming up! We love and miss our family!!

Random Nun-Sense. . .

So it's been awhile. . . only because nothing has really been going on! I've really just been doing crafts and hanging out with my friends which is so fun, but you can really only post so many pictures of your projects before you go too far.  People start thinking that's all you do.  So I'll just cover the past events, like I do every week.  I hope this is what a blog is used for.  I don't really have funny stories or kids to talk about.  So here goes nothing.
 (This is Ryan after he thought it would be a good idea to put his desk on cinder blocks because he was getting back aches from it "being too short"..:))

As of late I have turned into something that I never knew was possible.  I love it, but it's a change! I've suddenly become so obsessed with pottery barn and the things they sale on there that I swear I could make.  Like rocks that are painted with chalk board paint and they write words on them, they sale them in a set of 4 for $15.00! So I go to my sisters back yard pick out some rocks and get spray paint and there you go! I've made them, easy.  Next.  My friend Emily showed me this section in Home Depot where they put all the scrap wood and sell it for $0.51.  So I buy some get some spray paint, design a cute name thing, bedazzle it a little (a lot) and there we go! I get a thrill from it, buying cheap supplies and making something worth hanging on a wall.
This is my next project: Fix my beloved blanket that my Grammy gave me. Then Ryan can't be so grossed out by it! :)

 This past week my sister and I and the little guys went to the pet store at the mall.  They have so many cute puppies that I want to take home.  But apparently it's a good idea that I don't... I'll tell you why.  So we found this Mini German Shepard, it was soo cute! A worker got it out of it's cage and let us play with it.  The boys weren't loving it, but I was.  I was hugging it and rubbing my face on it.  I wanted to take him right then!  Well when we left (without the pup) literally two minutes after I started to ITCH! Everywhere! But mostly on my thighs...weird.  But I couldn't stop itching them, it was out of control!  I couldn't stop itching, nothing was going to stop me from getting that itch.  So my sister started to get worried and took me home and I showered and was much better, but looking at me you wouldn't have thought I was okay.  I guess I itched a little too hard... My thighs were bruised, it looked like I had been kicked with a soccer shoe.  It was hideous! Well the worst thing out of this whole story is I sent a picture of it to my mom...bad idea.  She called me crying saying that something was wrong with me, and it's stupid of me to take it so lightly.  So I was ordered to go to the doctor.  So Ryan and I went and I had to give my blood, which is my worst nightmare! I hate it more then snakes, spiders, scorpians, worms ANYTHING! And after all that, the doctor called me and told me i'm fine and I just need to lay off the itching and not to be so aggressive.  I guess I'll stay away from the dogs for now.

 Lastly, the weather here in AZ has been amazing! It has been low 80's upper 70's.  It is so pleasant.. finally! It's been so bloody hot I was about to boil.  But Ryan and I went and picked up a new little table and chair set for our deck.  Walmart special, we love it.  We picked it up so Ryan could start studying outside, which hasn't happened yet, so I'm putting it to good use by sitting out here and blogging.  But we bought it, almost didn't get it in the car, got home and then I was asked by my sweet husband if I would put it together so he could study...what the! I've never done this, but I guess there is a first for everything..why not now.  So I put it together and I'm like a proud mother looking at it.  Although I wasn't happy at the time, I am now. Who knew it could seriously be so confusing? All that matters is that it's standing and usable.

So that's really it, thanks for reading yet another post by me.  Sometime I'm going to get Ryan to post, sometime during his 20 hours of studying a day, why not take thirty minutes to write on our blog? It's a great idea I think.  Anyway, Until next time...whenever that will be.
Oh and P.S. update on the Fat Kid, Tramp Situation, they got a new tramp, but when Ryan tried to get on it with Jack, Jack freaked out and started yelling "he's going to break it, off off!" Ha ha, best thing ever! I love it!

Celebration Week!

This past week was full of fun and exciting events.  We first started out with Ryan's parents coming in along with my family too.  It was so fun having everyone here! They had all come in for Ryan's white coat ceremony. Sadly, Ryan had a really big test to study for so he didn't really get to spend much time with anyone.  But that means I was able to spend a lot of time with them!  Ryan's parents and little brother stayed with us in our apartment, which was really fun to have them just right here! No traveling required :) 

The White Coat ceremony was on Friday afternoon so Ryan was at school up until the ceremony so we all went and met him there.  We all sat together and watched both Ryan and my brother in-law get their white coats.  So great and exciting.  We went to dinner after with everyone which is always fun! We did some pre-birthday shopping with my mom and sister.  We wathced conference too this weekend which was great like it always is.  I was so sad to see everyone leave and I can't wait to see them again in a few weeks back in Utah.
 This last Tuesday was my 22nd birthday!! It was so fun to have everyone here over the weekend because then it started my birthday a few days early!  Since I was little I have LOVED my birthday! I think it was because my parents always did such a great job giving us a wonderful day! But Ryan has taken over very well! He made me breakfast and then he went off to school and I went off to the Phoenix Zoo with my sister and nephews and a friend! It was really fun but we had a pretty big rain storm which was fine, it seems to rain on days that are important (i.e. our wedding day) After Ryan and I went to dinner and then came home and just watched a movie and took it easy!  It was a great day thanks to my family!

Next I went to the Science Museum with the same group of family and friends! It was really fun and I've never seen Jack so focused on things.  He loved it and it was so great to be there.
This week was also full of crafts! A few of us have done everything we can think of, and we have enjoyed ourselves the entire time! We recovered things and made vinyl lettering, it is so fun!  We are going to do it this week again and I'll keep you
updated with pictures and things! 
But that is really all for this week! If anything else comes up that is worth blogging for! Have a great week everyone!

I Still have a crush on Justin Timberlake...Sue Me!

This you tube video is from the Jimmy Fallon show.  I haven't seen much of Justin lately since his appearance on the Ellen show but it's been a while.  When my sister Kindi (who is so in love with Justin and is CONVINCED that he is going to show up on her door step for her birthday and sing happy birthday to her, you would think after being let down for the past ten years she would get it...guess not) But anyway, she showed me this and all my feelings came back for him.  Oh how I loved him in his baby blue swishy sweatsuit that he wore on his Disney Channel N'sync concert appearance.  His bleach blond curly hair that my husband tried to copy when he was in high school but wasn't successful (from what I've heard from his friends) I love him in this video, not only is he a hottie but he is funny. Here you go ladies and gentlemen.  Enjoy.
