Just a little update of us KiDDO's!!!

I feel like I just posted but then I looked and realized that it has been 6 days since then. Time is seriously slipping out from under my feet. Everyday goes by so fast. Can you believe I've been married for 5 weeks already? I feel like it just happened last week! I keep getting told that every year of marriage it goes by faster and faster. I'm a little nervous! If our first year is going by this fast, what is to come? Next thing we know, we are gonna be all wrinkled and old and people are gonna be feeling sorry for our old crippled lives. Uh, oh! ( I hope Granny isn't reading this!.. I love you Granny-Boo, your my favorite ever!!!)

Well, Randy is working like crazy. Everyday until like 6pm. or so. It fluctuates but it's usually after I get out of school which is 5pm. Then two days a week, he goes over to Biolife and donates plasma. The extra cash certainly helps. We are praying and hoping that work is going to continue to be busy. The economy is certainly against us at this moment. But hopefully, we can work together to make us all succeed. It's been really hard financially for us. Since I was laid off of my job, because of the economy, Randy has had to make enough money for his bills as well as mine. We are trying to figure out what more we can cut back but it seems like there is nothing else. This last month was really hard with the wedding and honeymoon. Randy took so much time off that we were feeling the effects of it.


And for me, I'm still going to hair school. Still got another eleven months of it. Seems like forever but I'm sure it will go by fast. I love it but it's hard not working and bringing in an income. But soon, I will. Randy is going to build me a little home salon in our office. So I can still work while we have kids and I can stay home with them and still have a career in something that I love to do. So I'm excited to get started with that project. I think Randy is just excited as I am about my schooling. I think this is because his sister went to the same school so he is excited for us to do the same thing and have lots in common.

Oh, yeah! and.... I think I broke my toe on Sunday. Randy and I always go to his dad's for Sunday Dinner then to Hatch's to visit and of course, the Hatch girls talked us into walking down to the Virgin River to play. We weren't planning on getting wet until we got down there and saw how much fun it was. So we changed into some shorts the girls had and went swimming. Well there are tons and tons of rocks so our feet were hurting so bad. I think maybe a few tears were released from Randy's eyes. :P Then on our way back to the house. I went up to scare the girls who were walking ahead of us and , by golly, stubbed my toe on the back of one of their feet. Now, I know it doesn't sound too bad but my foot has been swollen and insanely bruised since then. I have missed two days of school this week and the other two days I limped around and by the end of the day my feet were so fat, you would have thought I was pregnant. It's a good think my honey loves to make me feel good. He has been giving me nice feet massages. Good kid! :P

Man! This was supposed to be a little update. I swear I can never post small. It seems as if I always have to write an essay or two! Ha.

We love you all and love to hear your feedback and comments. Your the best! :P

I know it's been forever and a day since we last posted. But we have an excuse, really!! Planning for a wedding takes up your time. Then the honeymoon, very busy! :P and then coming home, trying to get back into the groove. We got home on a Sunday and on Monday, we both had to wake up a 6:30 in the morning and get ready for school and work. We haven't really had a break since then. Last night was our four week or one month anniversary. We were so shocked that it has already been a month. Time has gone by so fast. We went out to dinner at this new Brazilian restaurant. I was so excited to go this restaurant especially since Randy went on his mission to Brazil. He always talks about how he doesn't remember the language. Can you believe it's been six years since he has been home? Of Course, he has forgotten the language when he hasn't used it for 6 years! I can barely remember what I wore last week. Anyways, I highly recommend this restaurant. It's called Made in Brazil. Very, very good and the people who work there are so sweet. I felt like everyone spoke portuguese, many of the meat servers went on Brazilian missions and one guy is from Brazil. They had portuguese music playing and tonight they are having a live band and having what they call is a carnival. (If we had've known that then we would have waited until today to go. Lol. Anyways, these last couple months for us have been really hard. Since I lost my job in January and Randy hasn't been working barely at all, we haven't really had the money coming in to pay our bills. And then when some money comes's immediately gone to bills. :( Sad, I know! But we are okay. We keep praying and hoping that work will come in. and Viola! Every since the day we got home from the honeymoon, Randy has been working all day and quite late. It's kind of hard because he works so hard and late that when he gets home he is so pooped out. So for those few weeks after the wedding we were struggling so hard but now we are doing much much much better..... Just thought i'd keep ya'll updated on that aspect. The Honeymoon was amazing. It wasn't too long nor too short. Friday and Saturday night we went to Vegas and spent the night at a Resort. We have this travel share thingy. Then Sunday morning we got up early and drove to San Diego. It was nice to be able to drive a long time and just talk. It was also really cool because we drove through the areas where Randy grew up in California. So he would tell me where he lived and little stories. When we got to San Diego, we checked in and just relaxed. The next day we got up and went to the San Diego Zoo. It was way cool. Just to see all the different kinds of animals and whether they were endangered or not. The next day, we went to Sea World. We loved the Dolphin Show and the Shamu Show. We definately got drenched. :) The next day we went to old Town San Diego. There is a Mormon historical center but they were remodeling it so we weren't able to see it. But lots of Mexican food and cool displays. Thursday, we woke up and drove up Highway 101 to Oceanside. It was so awesome to drive along the beach. In Oceanside, our resort was right off the beach. Our view was amazing and we were right near the harbor and the pier. We went to this cute little 50's diner at the very end of the pier. We felt as if we were in the middle of the ocean. We went at sunset and got lots of pictures. The trip was amazing and I hope one day we can go back and enjoy that time together again. Our wedding was beautiful and we are so grateful for our families and all those who attended. We are so happy together and we are happy to have the example you all place in our lives.

I'm trying to put together a slideshow but I am not very good at it. I think the file is too big. I'll let ya'll know when we get it.
