Ok so this is gonna be another long post but I am going to update everything we have been up to over the summer. It prob isnt going to even be in order just how I remember it. Plus I know prob no one even reads this but I like showing off my blog work to Matt when I get done :)
So we got back from our wedding and honeymooning on May 18th. We came home to such a mess of an apt we didnt know what to do with ourselves. Plus I had to get back to work the next day so Matt got to play housewife all summer until he started his job around fall semester. During this time I was taking Human Anatomy and working my butt off and Organizational Effectiveness and Matt was taking a Geography class.
After months of going through stuff, organizing, and many trips to Andrea's house to store stuff in the basement(thanks so much to Andrea letting us store things at her house I dont know what we would do with all our stuff if we couldn't), we finally got our apt looking like this! (Decorations courtesy of my mom she helped pick everything, buy it, and helped me put it up :)
We had a fun cabin trip.
1 Month wedding Anniversary, Matt surprised me with flowers! Love him :)
Went to my friends Chelsea and Lance's wedding at the Draper Temple.
Made a flower pot at Color Me Mine with the hubby.
We bought a new couch at RCWilley.
Matt bought Harry Potter 1-5 on BluRay as a surprise 2 month anniversary present :)
We went to the Scottish Highland Festival at Thanksgiving Point.
Grocery Shopping at Smiths, this is on a regular basis for us since we only buy things we need for like 1 or 2 meals and end up making like 3 trips a week to the grocery store for random things.
Went to the Lehi Rodeo were it poured on us and froze Matt to death.
We had a camping trip up near Squaw Peak with Heather and Braden, and then the next day we went shooting.
Our awesome hubbys!
Me and Heather
We love having fun married friends to hang out with!
Went to my family's cabin for 4th of July. Here is the whole clan waiting for the parade.
We went to the fire station for a big breakfast thing they do every year.
We went to the creek to look for trout, here is my dad looking for fish :) I just love him! :)
We went to the Orem Fair with Heather and Braden and Rachel and Arrian. It was so nice and then a storm rolled in really fast, it got super windy and starting pouring.We were trapped in the scentsy tent and the boys went to get the cars but then we had to make a run for it and got completely soaked, but it was fun.
We had to bury one of our beloved robo dwarf hamsters. this is what they look like...
Here is the burial.
Olive Garden date.
I think these are my 4 month anniversary flowers. The hubs knows how to spoil his wifey :)
We had such a fun time this summer, being married made everything in life so much better! We had so many fun adventures and I cant wait for all the new ones we have in store for us :)
