All moved in

We are officially all moved in! We moved in 2 weeks ago and we unpacked the last box today and it felt great! We put up pictures on the walls tonight and it is really starting to feel like our own place and that people actually live here. It is starting to feel like we are married now :) I love making dinner when Skyler gets home from work and I have made some delicious dinners :) I love looking up new recipes and trying them out (oh, side note, I've become obsessed with Cupcake Wars on the Food Network and I now want to open a cupcake shop of my own haha).

So other than unpacking and organizing and decorating the apartment, I haven't really been up to anything. My car is still broken and living in Skyler's parents driveway so I am at home all day while Skyler is at work. I am getting my car fixed in the next few weeks though so after that I will have my car and be able to get out during the day!

My mom and brother, Ben, are on their way out to Utah from Tennessee right now! I am so excited. They are stopping in Texas to drop off Natalie at school and set her up in her new apartment and then driving out to Utah. Ben is a freshman and going to UVU this fall and I am so excited to have him out here! He is great :) So they get here on Friday and we will move him in and go shopping (Target, Ikea, and Costco of course) all weekend. I have missed my family so much! I didn't think I would miss them as much as I do. The wedding went by so fast and I feel like I didn't get to spend enough time with them. So I am glad I get to see my mom and Ben this weekend :) Can't wait!

Well that is all for now :)

p.s. We have decided to get a dog. Anyone know which breeds are good apartment dogs? We need help

New name. New blog.

So I decided to make one of those "married blogs." Most of my married friends have blogs and, I have to admit, I read them all. It is nice to know what they are doing with their lives these days. So here is my "married blog" and I hope some peoplewill actually read it.

Skyler and I have been married for 17 days now and it still does not feel like we are married. When does the "oh my gosh I'm married" feeling kick in? It still feels like we are on one big date. We didn't see each other for 2 months this summer and it felt like forever! It was so nice to see him again when he came out to Tennessee a week before the wedding. He calmed me down and helped me withall the stress from wedding planning. But all the stress paid off. The wedding was perfect. It was better than perfect! It was all that I imagined since I was a little girl and more! Maybe later when I have more time I will write a post all about the wedding for those who couldn't come.

We went to Disney World for our honeymoon and it was so perfect! We stayed at the Caribbean Beach resort for 4 nights and 5 days. We went to all four parks and then to Downtown Disney on the last day. Here are a few pictures:

Yes we had to get the Ear Bride and Groom Hats :)

We love Jasmine and Aladdin

So that is just a little about the past 17 days of our new lives together. Now we are waiting to move into our new apartment. We are going to live in Holladay, Utah :) We are so excited to finally be in an apartment! We have been living in h
otels since we've been married. We were in this little place.
It had a tiny tiny kitchen and a very small bathroom with no towels and a super small bed. And it also smelled like cigarette smoke. We were supposed to stay there for 2 and a half weeks but we were able to find a place to stay with some family friends. We are so grateful for them! Now just 10 more days until we can finally move into our apartment.

I hope I can update this blog often and help every stay informed with what we are doing :)
