No, I'm not pregnant.

About a month ago, we decided we were going to move closer to campus because a) I work there, and b) Dave goes to school and works there. Living in north Orem hasn't been the best on our gas budget. We tried doing the bus thing for a while, but taking two hours to get to work wasn't the most ideal. Moral of the story: we were looking for a place to move.

Dave couldn't sleep on Monday, so he was surfing the web for a place to live. He found an apartment in a house, drove by the next day, saw the house was for sale, and started looking into THAT option.

To make this week's long story short. We decided Monday to buy and rent out the basement. We looked at multiple houses throughout the week. We found a house in west Provo, looked at it, got pre qualified, and made an offer. Today our offer was accepted. If all goes well with the financing, we will shortly be home owners!

Photo Tag from Rachel

Here is a fun & easy photo tag. Here are the rules: just go to your picture file, open the 6th folder, and the 6th picture! Then post it and tag 5 friends.

I'm on my work computer and my laptop has issues currently, so I just went to my facebook and picked the 6th album and 6th picture. (I wasn't sure if I was supposed to go from the oldest to newest or vice versa, so I did the more current one, the other direction wasn't anything interesting)

This one, however, is quite funny. This is us after cutting cake at the WR reception. I was observing all the frosting and crumbs that accumilated in my awesome acrylic nails. Who knows what Dave is thinking. "Wow, it's quite tastey!" is probably close.

Visiting Family

Last weekend was my Aunt R's recital. My Uncle K and Aunt E came into town for the recital. At the post recital get-together we discussed doing something as a whole extended family for the weekend. So I got ahold of all the extended family in the area I could think of and thus ensued a large Sunday dinner. Uncle K and Aunt E came over and cooked delicious Chinese food and Dave and I got to give our beautiful table its maiden voyage. We got this beautiful 4'x4' round solid oak table w/ two 2' leaves for one of our wedding gifts. It just needed to be re-finished. (I'd post before and after pictures of the table, but I haven't found my cord to my camera yet...beware, when I do, there will be lots of photos posted.) So we put the leaves in the table, covered it with our one table cloth, and I got out the beautiful dishes that Aleza made for us (THANK YOU ALEZA!). What I failed to consider was that the large table also came with large chairs which wouldn't allow for 13 people to sit around the table. It wasn't as big of a deal as I'm making it sound, but I just wanted to accentuate that there were 13 people at our house on Sunday for dinner. It was a fun dinner, not to mention DELICOUS. Yes, be jealous.

This weekend my parents are coming in town. I will be going to Park City Friday and Saturday for a Mary Kay national area conference. I'm hoping to be back in Provo for the BYU vs. UNM Homecoming football game, which my parents have bought us tickets for! FOOTBALL! Besides that, I'm not sure what the 'rents have planned for their trip, but I'm sure some fun fam adventures are on their way.
