I sure do have a love/hate relationship with blogging. Here's the thing -- I LOVE reading other people's blogs, but I HATE updating mine. It's not that I don't like telling everybody what we've been up to, but sometimes we really just haven't been doing much, at least nothing out of the ordinary. I always feel super guilty when I'm reading all of these other cute blogs, and then I realize that it's been two, three, or maybe even four weeks since I've updated this one.
Here's another thing! Tyler and I are not very avid picture-takers. This adds to the love/hate relationship. I feel like if I have an entire blog without pictures, it isn't going to be read. Perhaps because there would simple be too many words, or because the pictures are sometimes the more exciting part of the blog. They really add to the stories that I tell.
Now that I've rambled on about this love/hate relationship, I actually do have some things to talk about!! You all thought that the blog title was in reference to Tyler and me. Not true. As I recall, a few weeks ago (better yet, on Valentine's Day) I promised that I would update soon and tell you about the day's festivities. When I said "soon" what I was thinking was later that week, probably by Friday. What actually happened was that by Friday I just didn't want to update, since we don't have any pictures documenting the day. Weird, I know.
So, here's what happened:
Started the day off, it was just a typical Monday morning. Tyler had to go to class at 9:30 and then we both had class at 10:30. After class we did what we usually do, go sit down somewhere in the TSC and eat lunch. This is where the day got special: Tyler bought be a coke and one of those big Laffy Taffy's, and I got him a mini York peppermint patty. We're big spenders! Tyler went to work at 12:00, and I went to work at 1:30. When I got off work at 5:00 we went to dinner to Chili's! It's a good thing we got there when we did, because it got pretty busy about 20 minutes after we got there. After dinner we just went home. At 7:00 we watched The Bachelor. It's the dumbest show, but I love it! I'm so lucky to have a husband that loves me enough to not only let me watch the show on Valentine's Day, but to actually watch it with me too! I'm pretty sure after The Bachelor was over, we watched an episode of Grey's Anatomy and then headed off to bed! We decided that we didn't want to do gifts this year, and it was quite a relief. :)
Since Valentine's Day we have been very busy just with the same things, school, work, volunteering, etc. Life just never really slows down! Tyler and I both have two tests this week. His are both on Wednesday and mine are both on Thursday. To add to the craziness of this week, we are going to see The 5 Browns tonight for one of our classes! It should be fun! I hope I have a little bit of time to update the blog soon to tell you all about it!

Happy Valentine's Day!!
I'm SO excited to be able to spend Valentine's Day with Tyler today, it's just too bad that we have to go to school and work before we can really celebrate.
So, It's been a while since I've last posted ... life has seriously been unbelievable busy. Tyler has been busy volunteering at a physical therapy clinic at the student health center on campus and I've been busy going to meetings, I was recently made the assistant director for a student-run PR firm on campus, called True Blue Communication. On top of these things, we are both so busy just going to our classes and work. It's ok though, because it makes us appreciate the weekends that much more.
This last weekend was amazing, we were actually able to stay in Logan and RELAX. It was so wonderful ... after we went to a not so fun and not very well done performance for one of our classes. On Saturday we went grocery shopping, made cupcakes, and had a Grey's Anatomy marathon! This marathon actually continued on Sunday after church too. We sound like the laziest people ever, but it was a much-needed break. Neither of us were feeling real great either.
For Christmas we got our parents (both sets) tickets to a Utah State basketball game! It was so fun to have our parents come up to Logan and spend time with us. Not to mention it was only the second game of the season that we were able to make it to. The Spectrum is really a fun atmosphere for basketball, the students are crazy! This is the exact reason that Utah State's Spectrum has the best home court advantage in the West! We really do appreciate all that our parents do for us, and we love spending time with them!
We haven't been able to take many pictures lately, we tend to forget the camera when we are going places that would be picture-worthy, or else we just flat-out forget to take the pictures. We're going to try to get better. Just hang on -- we're trying to get better! I promise I will post some pictures soon, just let me take some first!
Look for a post soon to find out how we celebrated our Valentine's Day!
