Our New Apartment!!

This last week has been very busy for us! We packed up all of our things and moved up north to Logan! It was sad leaving home, but it is so great to finally have our own apartment! We would just like to say thank you to our parents, Rob & Linda and Bruce & Karen, for helping us move in! You guys are the best!! So, as promised, I have some pictures of our apartment! Luckily we were able to unpack all of our things fairly quickly...So, lets take a look at this last week's adventures!

This is the Uhaul that we rented for the day! It fit all of our things really nicely, however, it was a pain as we tried to return it -- the place we tried to return it to was locked up, so we couldn't even get in. We found a different place to take it back to, and everything worked out great!

Welcome to our apartment! We live in apartment 29-D! You should come visit us sometime!

This is our family/living room! We love our couches and coffee table (thanks Shawn & Mary!), and we especially love our TV (thanks Sandy)! We're so grateful for all of the furniture and other items that were given to us!

A candy dish! This was Tyler's idea, and I love it! Unfortunately the M&Ms don't stay long enough.

This is our dining/kitchen area!! I wish we had a little bit more counter space, but it gets the job done! It's just perfect for us!

Our AWESOME bathroom!! Tyler and I decided to do something fun and bright that we both would love, and I think it turned out great! The colors make an otherwise dark bathroom bright and happy!

Our bedroom is bedroom "B." Single people used to live in our apartment, so I guess the housing people thought that the grad students would need help remembering which bedroom was theirs... or else "B" just stands for "bigger" because our room is the bigger of the two.

This is our bedroom! Our bed is really high, and sometimes I have to get a running start so I can make it up on the bed, but I like it! The only problem is that I hit my shin on the bed frame at least once a day...maybe one day I will remember there is a sharp corner to avoid.

This is the best piggy bank, and it really adds a lot to the room! I just hope that one day it will be full! Most importantly though, it's great for a laugh!

We are so happy with our new apartment! We hope that all of you guys will be able to come see it at some point! We'd love to see you! Thanks to all of you who have helped us out with getting ready to move, it means a lot to us! Next week is the first week of school, so we'll let you know how it goes!

Jack Johnson!!...And some other fun things we've done this week.

This past week has been a great week for us! Last Friday our roommates, Adam and Natalie, got married up in Logan! Since they were getting married at 8:30 a.m. we decided it would be better to stay over the night before...we got a room at the Super 8, and can I just say that it was SUPER classy? It really wasn't bad, they had great pillows, and a good breakfast! What more can you ask for? We were lucky to have had the opportunity to share Adam & Nat's special day with them, and we are so excited for them!

Friday was a very busy day for us! We decided that since we are going to be moving in to our apartment in Logan on August 21st it might be a good idea to go to get most everything that we'll be needing from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. It was so fun to be able to go get fun things for our new apartment, and having gift cards to pay for it all made it even better!!

After Bed, Bath, and Beyond we went to Tyler's parents' house to show Linda our new purchases, and also to visit Tyler's siblings, Kylee and Parker, who haven't been feeling too great lately...we hope that they will get well soon!

I think Tyler would agree with me on this one though, the highlight of the week was the Jack Johnson concert that we went to last night at USANA Ampitheater. I got Tyler the tickets for his birthday, so we decided to go to dinner before as part of the celebration as well.

We decided to go to Outback, mostly because we had a gift card, but it sure tasted good! I decided to just get the classic Steak, but Tyler was lucky enough and got some Shrimp too. Now, I'm not a shrimp eater, so whenever he gets the chance to eat it, he'll take it!

We had to head up to the concert quite a bit early so that we would be able to get decent seats. We were just on the grass, so we wanted to get as close as possible, I think we did alright. One of the funnest things we did while waiting for the concert to start was watching the funny people around us! We found this guy with hair that was to-die-for, I was lucky enough to snatch a picture, take a look...

Isn't it fabulous?! Another way we tried to pass time while waiting for the concert to start was by taking pictures of us, and of some of the things around us... unfortunately, the sun was right behind us, so it was slightly difficult to get decent lighting in our pictures. Even though the lighting isn't the best, I still like the pictures!

After a lot of waiting, picture taking, and people-watching, the concert finally started!! Jack Johnson is a great musician! Some of the songs he sang included Banana Pancakes, Bubble Toes, The Horizon Has Been Defeated, and Sitting, Waiting, Wishing.

The Jack Johnson concert was so fun! I am so glad we were able to go! I think it was one of the best things to do as the end of summer is getting closer. We're both excited to move up to Logan, but we will sure miss being so close to everybody! As soon as we can we'll post some pictures of our new apartment!

4 Weeks and Counting!!

Welcome to our blog!! I think I'll be able to update it often, I just hope that Tyler and I will have fun things to blog about! Neither of us are very good at taking pictures, but we'll do our best. :) This last month has been the best month ever! Four weeks ago we got married, and we are so thankful for all of the people who helped out and made everything possible...aka thanks to Bruce and Karen, and also to Rob and Linda for opening up their checkbooks!! The day was seriously perfect -- I wouldn't change anything!

We also had a great photographer - Rob Higginson - who took SO many pictures! I was so happy with our pictures, and I would just like to say thank you to him as well!

We've been pretty busy this last month! Tyler's brother Kevin left on his mission to the Philippines (well, to the MTC, then to the Philippines), Tyler and I both had our birthdays, and we are also trying to finish up all of those thank you notes! We also had the opportunity to go boating with my brother and sister-in-law, Shawn and Mary! It was the first time Tyler had been boating in a couple of years, it was fun to watch him on the wakeboard and the ski! I also got up on the wakeboard for my first time too! It was a lot of fun! Thanks Shawn and Mary!

So, here we are one month later, and we are still just as happy as ever! I can't wait for the many fun things we have coming up, but I also can't wait to tell you all about them!
