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.
