Finishing Up School!

School is almost over! Nate is taking his last final tomorrow and he is sooooooooo excited! He has worked hard this fall and winter semester and he is so excited to have a nice 4 month summer break. (except for that he will be working, but not having to study for anything, or use his brain that much!) My last final is going to be taken next Thursday. I can't wait either! My semester has not been nearly as hard as Nates, but it is still going to be an excellent break for the summer. Can't wait!
Nate and I are also heading to Mexico on April 30th. That is another perk to the semester ending! We will be there for just over two weeks and can not wait. We love Mexico. My parents own a condo down there and so it is a great place to go because (a) it is beautiful and hot, and (b) it's a free place to stay for us.

We will be meeting my parents and my sister, brother in law and niece there. It will be an excellent family vacation! I love when I am able to visit with my family. We try and make our visits no more than 2-3 months apart..and that's how it has to stay. My family is so close and it is just the best time ever when we get to spend time together! I love you guys!

Day 1

So I got thinking lately that I wanted to start a blog so that Nate and I can remember all the fun and crazy things that we do together! And since I live so far away from my family, I wanted them to see all of the fun stuff that they're missin' out on! Haha. I love creepin' peoples blogs, so I thought that maybe I should crack down and start my own. Nate was very shocked when I told him that I was going to start to blog, but secretly I think he is excited to see my perspective on things.

Anyway, I will just post a quick update on our lives! We go married about a year and a half ago, on October 3rd, 2008 in the Salt Lake Temple. It was the best day ever! Many people complain about their wedding day, and have nit picky things that they didn't like, but I can honestly say that my day was perfect. So, like I said, we have been married for a year and a half. We are still both students. Nate is getting his masters in Accounting, and I'm getting my bachelors in Physical Education, Teacher Education. I want to minor in something as well, so that I can teach both phys ed and something else, but that something is undecided. We live in Orem, Utah where we bought our very first house together. We love having a house and a yard. We even have an old school bbq out back which is nice! As of right now, I am working at the best fast food joint ever, called In-N-Out Burger. I personally love it, but that's just me. (I know Kendra does too! haha) I have worked there ever since they came to Northern Utah in October 2009. I was one of the crazies who waited in a long line to be interviewed, just because I wanted a job, and luckily I was one of the ones to be hired :) It has been a fun job so far because it's pretty much all college students who work there. (I'm not hatin' on old people, I'm just sayin') Nate is super busy with school, because the accounting program is very competitive and demanding. As of right now he works every Saturday at his dads accounting firm, helping to do peoples taxes during this heavy tax season! Last Saturday was his last day there though, because the tax deadline is coming up this week! So he is just focusing on his finals right now and then will get a job for the summer! That's pretty much our lives in a nutshell right now. We love hanging out with our friends, and we are fortunate enough to have a lot of great ones! We have a group of us and it's so much fun when we are all able to get together. We love to play cranium, boys vs girls. We have 4 married couples get together when we play this, and it's chaos. It's very intense cranium, but it's awesome because the girls usually come out on top! (Luckily not very many boys blog, so I think I'm safe in saying that!)
Nate just came upstairs and greeted me like this: "Hey Blogger!" I already got that title, that's great! Hopefully I can keep to it :)
