House centipedes (aka "Daddy long-leg centipede alien bugs!")

Mike and I are still new at this blog stuff. But, life is good for us. We love being married and have so much fun together. We also love our little basement apartment we live in, even though it is infested with spiders and house centipedes. Mike has taught me to remember to scream, "Bug!" when I see one instead of just scream (sometimes he's left trying to figure out what I'm screaming at, and that can make his imagination wander too). Luckilly our house got sprayed so we've been okay for the time being. I'm getting better at facing my fears though.
Since we're the typical poor newly wed couple, we go on fun and cheap dates. Last night, Mike and I went to feed some ducks on the Provo River trail. We only had two pieces of bread, but the ducks didn't seem to mind. They got really close to us too. Our other dates consist of us driving to Cedar Hills to my dad's. We "rent" movies from him to save money and switch them out each time we visit. We also watch "The Office" with them, since it is our favorite TV show (and we don't have TV).
Other than our fun dates, Mike and I have been very busy with work and school. Mike works full time at Dixon and goes to BYU full time too. I've been going to school at UVSC and am in the process of applying to the nursing program. I work at an LTAC hospital PRN and work part-time at an apartment complex called Carriage Cove. (Honestly it's the easiest job I've ever had. I get paid to eat treats, answer the phone, and watch TV, along with a bit of other trivial tasks). But life is great for us. We're going on 6 months of marriage (almost 7) and are still going strong!!

Trying to Blog

The cold, but wonderful day in March.

Bridal shot.

I have 5 way good girl friends that all got married in 2007. Four of them are here in the pic with me. Paige, who was first to get married (February), was gone with her honey in California at another reception, so she wasn't in the photo. I was next (March), then Crystal (April), Jessica (August), Kimmy (August), and finally Nikki (September). It was a great year full of tons of bridal showers and fun!

A beautiful picture of the newlywed lovebirds!

We thought that we would also give this online thing a shot. Our lives our bland compared to most, but it's all we got! We started our lives together on March 10, 2007 in the Provo, Utah temple. We are the typical "still on our honeymoon" couple, living life on cloud nine.
