Don't be jealous

So Chris and I have reason to celebrate! Chris got a raise at Performance Software, and was pretty much told today that he rocks and that they want to keep him on for as long as he wants to stay and he is guaranteed a position with them when he graduates. Go Chris!

I hate the flu

I know, I know you are asking yourself right now, "why would anyone hate the flu? Honestly, it's a mystery to me." Well I hate it b/c contrary to public opinion, having the flu is no fun at all and it's contageous...I know...who knew? So first I was sick on sunday but this wasn't one of those 24 hour bugs I am still feeling under the weather. Chris got sick too, and had to stay home yesturday and is still feeling yucky today, the timing couldn't be worse with his semester coming to a end and finals creepy up on him. I just pray that he gets better faster than me.

Well inspite of all the sickness around here, it's beginning to feel like Christmas, Chris and I got our first Christmas tree and we decorated it this week and I was able to get all of the Christmas shopping done...Yay!!!! Now I just have to decide what to do for Chris's b-day next week, I still get a kick out of the fact that our birthdays and Christmas are in the same month and our anniversy is in the beginning of January...yep all with in a month of each other, so the next 30 days are going to full of celebration, go us...haha j/k.

So Much To Do, So Little Time

So much has happened in last month, it's been extremely busy. I got a new job working with for the Arizona Vanilla Co., it's super fun...don't be jealous. With my old job I had a lot of free time to blog and now I have work to do while at work! it's a wonderful thing. My days go by so much quicker :)I have also been doing sewing projects on the side. Right now I am sewing a prom dress for my little sister. It's way cute, and I can't wait to finish it. I will post pictures it when it's done. I have a goal to finish it this week.

This last weekend I had an awesome opportunity to fly to Utah and escort one of my dearest friends to the Provo Temple. It was such a wonderful experience, it meant so much to me to be able to be there for Toni. I can't think of anywhere I would of rather been.
So this last weekend was the first time Chris and I have been away from each other since we've been married. It was a lot rougher than I had expected, I could fall asleep at night and I was the fifth wheel when I was with my friends... it was pretty funny. I told Chris next time we would have to work it out so that he can come. It's crazy how quickly you can get used to being married. It's just great.

The Big Move

Well we finally moved! Our new apartment is so nice, we love it!!! As we were moving one of my friends pointed out that our old apartment looks like a hotel suite...and not in a good way. The master bedroom happened to have the sink and mirror in the bedroom...yes just like a hotel room and off the kitchen there was a tiny wet bar, perfect for if they decide to become a cheap hotel they can put the mini fridge in there, I know totally useless! I am so happy that we don't live there anymore. It is also a scarey complex while Chris and Dallas were moving furniture the cops showed up with a forensic team for the apartment above us, totally cra-za-y. I will try and take picture of that apartment today before I do the walk through with management and post it so you all can see the old one. Moral of the story: don't move to Midtown on Main.

That's all I have for now but I will post more about our new place a bit later.

Vi ses,

Carree

Ouidad rocks my world!!

Okay, thanks to Meesa my new obsession is Ouidad. Okay for those of you that are not in the know, Ouidad is a hair cut and styling system for curly hair peps. I just got home from getting my hair done and it looks amazing! Your probably thinking a curling iron was used to obtain these locks...but no, all he did was the ouidad cut and used some product and dried it and this was the result! I feel vain but I love my hair now!

Labor Day Weekend

For Labor Day Chris and I went to St. George. It's like our fav. place to visit these days, mostly because my family is there. It's just unfortunate that it takes 6.5 to 7 hours to drive there :( So we arrived in SG at around 2 am Saturday morning...urgh...I hate being in the car so long.

On Saturday we went to Peach Days, you are probably wondering what Peach Days is, well Peach Days is just about the biggest social event Hurricane, Utah has to offer. Peach days has crafts for sale, a quilt show, which consisted of about 15 quilts, old people demonstrating how to use a spinning wheel to form yarn, ameture singers performing well known country songs slightly off key, and if that's not enough to tickle your fancy, they also sell peaches. Honestly what more could a girl ask for? ...Not much more.

After the exciting 1-1.5 hour spent in Hurricane Chris and my dad went home to do some male bonding, a.k.a. watching movies. My mom and I went shopping we were gone for hours, pretty much because we went to a quiliting store and my mom is BFF with all the ladies that work there so she chatted it up them....good times.

Your probably asking yourself right now, "what's the fashion craze at Dixie High School?" Lucky for you I have the answer: tie dyed shirts. So what did Darcy, my little sister, and I do on Sunday? We tie dyed and now I have two psychedelic tie dyed shirts...don't be jealous.

And that my friend was our super exciting weekend.
