Changing Blogs

Ok, everyone, I know this is a little dramatic, but I'm creating a new blog since I also created a new email address. I think I'm going to just like wrap this one up by creating blog books or whatever whenever I figure out how to do it. Ha. The time has come to start fresh. I have about six blogs under this username and it's getting a little crowded so I thought it would be a good time now, what with my new name and my new husband and all the time I have on my hands. :)

So please follow me at from now on. Thanks!

Also, don't forget to keep following my 365 blog at Yay, blogging!

Oooo Honey Honey.... moon

We had the best honeymoon! It was easy so it was stress free, but it was also jam packed with fun, so we never got bored! These are probably the two qualities in a honeymoon I would recommend the most. That and flexible plans so that you don't really HAVE to do anything if you don't want to. Soooo... we stayed in a Marriott the first night and it was really nice and we loved it and then the first day of our honeymoon was actually Easter, but we forgot to look up a ward to go to and had a bad case of sleep-ins so we just ended up checking out of the hotel late and going to Old Town in San Diego, which was lovely. We had the most delicious Mexican food at El Fandango, walked around and looked at all the cool shops, bought some store-made taffy (delicious!!!), and found a store dedicated to root beer and beef jerky! Someone had the right idea. We'll definitely be back.

Day two of our fantastic little trip was also spent in San Diego. In the morning, we went kayaking in La Jolla and took pictures with a disposable waterproof camera, so we haven't developed them yet, but they are coming.... Then that night, we went to a Padres game with my new brother and sister-in-law, Jordan and Freesia. They got us awesome seats and the game was really good and fun to watch. It went into the 13th inning, but the Padres won with a sweet homer!

Day three was spent half in San Diego and half in Anaheim. The first part of the day, we went to the San Diego Wild Animal Park, which was confusing, but fun. We went on this tram safari thing, which was cool and we walked around and looked at all kinds of animals and stuff too. We even went in this butterfly habitat which was pretty rockin'. The butterflies would just like land on you and hang out. One landed on my toe, which was cool at first, but then when I couldn't walk, it got pretty annoying. We weren't lucky enough to get any of them landing on our heads or anything, but it was still pretty much the awesomest.

More on the honeymoon when I get this picture thing figured out and Blogger stops freaking out.

Yay, Money!!

I applied to about a million scholarships this year, hoping that I would at least get one of them and I found out in the last couple weeks that I got two half-tuition scholarships so far, which means that my tuition is paid for in the fall!! I could not be more happy about this! I just hope we can get some grants now to help pay for everything else. But I recommend always applying for scholarships. I didn't think I would get any, but ever since I've started applying, I've been getting them. And believe me, I'm by no means an ideal student. BUT!!! More good news! I got straight As this semester!! Well, I think I did at least. I got all As except for one class that my teacher messed up on my grade, but she's supposed to be changing it so I think I'll have an A in that class soon too. Anyway, I know I'm bragging a little and I know that's annoying, but I'm so excited that I did so well and that my hard work is paying off in monies! It was kind of a rough semester, being engaged and having it be my last of classes, but I pulled it off somehow. I have been so blessed lately, it's ridiculous. Yay!! :)

Week of the Wedding

Now that my countdown is over, I thought I would document how it all went down. The wedding week was as close to perfect as it could get! It was great, and so was the honeymoon, which I'll probably blog about next. :)

Tuesday, I took my last final and moved out of my house and Quinn and I drove to California. It wasn't a bad drive and it felt great to be done with school finally!

Then on Wednesday, I went through the temple and then we went to lunch at Islands. Then that night, Kate and Erin threw me a bridal shower and it was so much fun! So many people came and it was great to see everyone!

Thursday, Quinn and I took our bridals/groomals and Mallory was there helping us the whole time because she's the best. :) She also did my hair and make up. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I don't think this wedding could have happened without her.

Friday, we all helped set up for the reception, which was BEAUTIFUL, by the way, and then that night, me and some of the ladies went to BJ's for my last night of not being married. Ha.

The wedding day itself was absolutely perfect and I loved every minute of it, but I only really took pictures at the luncheon, so here are some good ones from that.

I wanted to upload more pictures from the luncheon, but our internet is being kind of lame sauce so I'll just stop with these. There were lots of other awesome people at the luncheon, who I wish I could upload pictures of, like Mallory, Kelly, Devin, Sammy, Chase, and Brett, but this will have to do. Anyway, the wedding week went just as planned and it was fantastic! Thank you to everyone who came and helped! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding. :)
