this weekend me and nathan decided to go out and spend time with just us. i have been wanting to go to the zoo for a long time so he took me. im like a little kid when i go, i love seeing all the animals. next time we will have to go at a different time because i think we went during nap time because a lot of the animals were sleeping. our favorites were the lions, giraffes,gorillas and the Orangutan. Oh, and the zebras and cheetahs. Pretty much everything. i couldnt get pictures of the big animals because i forgot my camera so i couldnt zoom in to get good pictures.
this little guy cracked me up

this is where all the monkeys are
"look babe, your finally home." -nathan

the salsa was so good i filled my self up and couldn't even eat my meal

i love being married.

edward and grams

On Tuesday we took my Grandma to see Eclipse. If you know my Grandma, she LOVES Edward. She had her Team Edward shirt on and kept reminding us that he became a vampire in the same year she was born. We drove her car, which is a volvo, and she was sure to remind us that it was the same car as Edwards. she cracks me up. Nathan kept telling her we were sitting close to the screen so she could kiss edward. she would say, "i dont want to kiss him, i just want to look at him." we love her so much and there is never a dull moment hanging out with her. she is so whitty but SO smart. she does crossword puzzles everyday and reads and continues to educate her self daily. shes amazing. i helped her finish a crossword once with my i phone and she was amazed at what i was using. she wants to get herself one of those now, as she says. i feel so blessed to live so close to her and be able to spend a lot of time with her.
sorry about the scragglines, it was 96 degress outside.

i love summer. it has been so fun this summer going to the pool, boating and hanging out with friends. yesterday we were able to spend time with family for 4th of july and today we took my four nephews to the pool. then my sweet husband took me shopping and i found the cutest skinny jeans for 13 dollars with a cute top to go with it. im really getting used to the whole being married, bargain shopping thing. i'll have to post pictures when i wear the outfit.

we also bought our first board game as a married couple. its called settlers of catan and we are obbsessed. every weekend we stay at our friends, brandi and alan's, house playing until at least 3 or 4 in the morning. funny our apartment hasn't been decorated yet and is still pretty plain just because we have been too busy to think about it. so my sister in law and i have been talking about making it cute. at 1:30 in the morning one night brandi and alan were over playing settlers with us and in walks my sister-in-law and victoria with a book shelf and these cute things they bought to make our apt more homey. she started rearranging all our furniture and decorating the place while we just sat at our table finishing our game. it was hilarious. i hope we didnt wake up our neighbors underneath us. we still have a long way to go but theres no rush.
other exciting news. i have been accepted to the university of louisville and am starting school again in the fall. me and nathan have really gone back and forth again on whether i should go or not, but we have had some really cool spiritual experiances and know that its what im supposed to do.

hope your enjoying your summer as much as us.
