Halloween Fun!

So tonight was pretty awesome. I had a very stressful day, and will have a very stressful week. Scott was so sweet and picked me up from school with a pizza for dinner. When we got home, there was a sweet note on the door from him, as well as this beautiful bouquet of flowers on the table. Then in the fridge, there was pumpkin pie cheesecake that I had been craving from Olive Garden. Plus, he had cleaned the whole house and done the dishes. It was so sweet! I am so lucky and totally have the best husband in the world!!

After dinner we went and bought a pumpkin and got to work carving it. Here's some pics from the fun night! :-)

Our cute Halloween window with our sweet pumpkin lights.

BOOOOOO!!! Happy Halloween :-)

Honeymoon, Apartment, etc

Alright, so here's a bunch of kinda old pictures we haven't done anything with. They're a little out of order, but kinda fun. Enjoy :-)
This was at David and Gretchen's wedding, we were waiting for them to come out.

This was our first picture on our Honeymoon, I think. We were in Park City walking to the outlet mall.

Shoes size 15 1/2 or something ridiculous.

We played miniature golf in Park City. I almost won, but Scott came through in the end.

Pretending to Luge at Olympic Park.

Showing love to the moose in downtown Park City.

Our apartment! It's hard to get a good picture.

This is our horrible, yet awesome, $20 couch before the cover.

The most incredible hotel room we stayed at in Kansas City, compliments and gift from my sister Jasmine. She's amazing! We loved it there. Chateau Avalon

One side of the car we drove that our cool brothers and sisters decorated. It was on all sides and it stayed there for about 3 days.

Three cheers for Scott for posting pictures! Wahoo! I've been meaning to do that, but I haven't. He snuck them on while I was laying incapacitated on the couch. Yeah, I got really sick again Monday night. I think it was a combination of bumping my head on team again (not that hard though, just enough to jarr things) and coming down with some "viral thing" as the doctor said which is blessing me with the infamous stuffy, runny, sneezy, nose, cough and just overall cold/flu miserableness. It's not so fun. I'm feeling better now, but I still got the cold weather icky's. I think Scott might be catching them too...not sure though.

Anyway, life is getting crazy. It's smack dab midterm time for me. Luckily Scott had all his last week. I got three between Monday and Wednesday, not to mention 6 more projects due on Monday (that's an exaggeration...kinda). After this next week, I have half my classes finished for the month of November, which will be a very welcome break, however I will still have a million and ten things to do during that "break." If we can just make it through this semester, I'll feel better. And it seems almost over.

We're still awaiting news about Scott's internship. We've decided it would be a huge blessing for us if he lands a spot. And I guess I wouldn't mind Wisconsin, it'd be a new change and new adventure.

As for dance, Jive is a killer. I've never done Jive before, and it's super fast and pretty hard. I'm still trying to figure out how to move my feet and legs correctly. At least I still got a little time. We have our first performance in a week, just a showcase of one number (mambo) at the social dance lab. Then we have an actual big show the 2nd week in November. And competitions are coming up in about 2 weeks as well. It's crazy! I don't feel quite ready, but usually I never do completely.

Anyway, this is long and it's hard to read long posts, plus I have a billion things to do in the next hour and a half, so sayonara!

Well I had been looking at some of the family blogs today and I realize that Karissa and I really need to get on the ball or something. We are a little slow at letting the family know what is up with us and with some pictures from the wedding. Many of you were there but some were not and so you were not able to see how beautiful my bride looked. I was so happy I just could not believe that happiness could be so great. I am still so happy to be married to such a wonderful person. Karissa and I are doing just great. School is rough and we are doing our best to find time to spend with each other. We love being married and being able to be with each other all of the time. Karissa is sick again. We think it is because of the concussion that she got, but she will improve because she is tough. I am doing good just going to school, and working as much as I can. I interviewed with a company for a summer internship. It is with Kohl's department store working in their corporate office. I would definitely love to work there and be apart of a good store. It is actually one of my favorite places to get clothes. The only part that Karissa and I don't like a whole lot is that it is in Wisconsin and the winters would be really cold. But the things that I read about the company and how it is growing and becoming stronger all of the time makes me excited and really anxious that I will get the job. If I get called back for a final interview than I will fly to Milwaukee on the 6th of November and visit the company. I should find out this week or the next. It will be a very nerve racking time. But other than all this life is great. Below are some pictures that we had taken at the wedding. Hope everyone is doing well. We love you all.

This is my favorite shot that was caught on film
We're pretty in love
I swept her right off her feet.

The classic ring bouquet shot.

Behind us is a little water fountain at
the Bountiful temple it is gorgeous.

Baby? Not for awhile...

So I'm sitting here in class listening to my professor and classmates talk about babies, more specifically about what you need to buy before and after you have a baby and how much it costs. Ugh. I'm so glad I'm not pregnant. Maybe in a couple years... A couple weeks ago we watched birthing videos. Ugh again. I think this class (infant development) is a good thing for me to take right now to prolong the desire for kids. Don't get me wrong, I'm soooo excited to have kids, just not quite yet. Okay, he just made a funny (my professor) His wife was using a breast pump and she was sitting there just going "moo....moo..moo" hahaha. It was funny.

Anyways, Scott and I are great. Life is great. School is very demanding, Scott is very loving, and dance is very enjoyable. I can't ever stop saying enough how much I love being married! Especially to Scott. I couldn't ask for a better husband.

A couple weeks ago I cut Scott's hair for the first time. I've never cut a guy's hair before. It was quite an adventure. After about 3 weeks of him begging, 20 minutes of watching a semi-useless video, and over an hour of trying to figure out how the heck to cut hair, I did it. And it actually doesn't look too bad! I was pleased, and I think he was too.

Other than that I can't really think of anything super crazy or exciting fun to say. Life just keeps going on. It's still enjoyable. (except for waking up around 5:20 am every morning) The only thing I wish I had was more time to spend with Scott.

...I should post pictures some day...
