driving... all the miles

day sixty: $.79 ice cream cones and the view of mountains are the only things that got me through the drive

getting caught up on march will hopefully happen tomorrow...
if not, it doesn't really matter cause ryan's the only one that reads this haha

don't mind how scary we look

day fifty-nine: leaving our apartment
we had a 15 hours drive ahead of us and we were already looking scary...
it was a long move haha

my parents are secretly angels

day fifty-eight: moving, movies, and mexican
my parents not only drove 18 hours to get to iowa
but they then helped up load all our crap
(which i feel like we have more of than two people should)
into a trailer, watched a movie, and paid for our dinner...
they are saints.

our last supper

day fifty-seven: thai flavors
we had no plates, no pots or pans, and no desire to cook.
thus... thia flavors.

and as always, it was yummy!

one room down

day fifty-six: because all we do for the next week is move.
our second room is empty.
yay for being at least 1/5 empty haha 

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

our friends are the best

day fifty-five: thank heavens for friends with husbands that can lift heavy things 
our friends saved us today.
mostly cause i can't lift heavy things,
and the husbands of our friends can...
so they lifted heavy things.

thanks friends!

we have no table

day fifty-four: i haven't left the couch today
mostly because we have no bed (except our mattress) and no table...
and i have school to do...

Monday, February 22, 2016

one week

day fifty-three: secretly... it took us a long time to take apart this dumb bed.
these dumb things were so easy to take out...
but we didn't know that. 

Saturday, February 20, 2016

soup is my favorite

day fifty-one: probably our last cooked meal in des moines...
don't worry i will feed ryan...
but it will probably be lots of frozen food and leftovers.
yay for easy husbands.

again... still not pregnant

day fifty: another fun secret

i got to take pictures to help our cute friends announce their new baby too.
soooo many september babies.
i'm so excited. 

Thursday, February 18, 2016

i am not pregnant

day forty-nine: all the babies
a benefit of being a month behind on this
is that a lot of secrets have come out since this time...
on the 18th my sister sent this picture to us of the cute human she is growing.

a new hobby

day forty-eight: who said it?
I've recently discovered a huge love for making quotes.
If you have any you'd like me to make...
let me know!

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

all the paper

day forty-seven: the studying never ends
2 tests, 1/2 a paper, and 5 assignments left
then i'm done with school...
until after we move back to utah, 
go on vacation in the sunshine (hopefully), 
celebrate ryan's sister returning from her mission,
and celebrate our annisversary...

i can do it, right?

flowers or shoes

day forty-six: he knows me well
husband got me keds for valentine's day
and a new memory card for disney world.
he knows me well. 

also we watched dumb and dumber with our friends tonight...
it was definitely dumb,
but also kind of funny

love day with my love

day forty-five: valentine's day
 it snowed today, all night i guess,
but we were too busy watching kids movies to notice
so church was cancelled after sacrament meeting. 
so husband and i went home
and took a nap
well i napped,
he doesn't ever nap, they crazy kid.
then we made a "fancy" dinner
aka it had shrimp in it...
that means fancy right?
but i will say it was delicious.  

then we went and played games with our friends,
moving away from them is the worst.

day forty-four: apparently i think you need to see our breakfast at least once a week
one of us eats oatmeal and grapefruit.
one of us eats oatmeal with yogurt in it.
who is the five year old and who is the old man?

mini dates

day fourty-three: they think we have small children
family video offers free children's movie with a rental...
we also get one. or two. or three.
and some times we buy kids movies too
(the are 5 bucks, how can we not)
they think we have small children at home,
little do they know it is just ry and i 
and our brownies in a mug

Thursday, February 11, 2016

grains and eggs

day forty-two: trying to be healthy
don't mind that i over cooked the eggs.
on the plus side...
steaming instead of boiling eggs turns out being 50x less messy.

try it. 

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

because it is a big deal

day forty-one: you'll probably be sick of seeing these.
today wasn't very exciting,
we packed a bit,
mostly for florida...
but holy cow it is coming fast. 

Tuesday, February 9, 2016

the words you need to hear

day forty- in the middle of all choices
we're making a lot of choices right now, ones that scare and excite me... and these made me feel more certain of what i'm doing

Monday, February 8, 2016

you'd never believe how happy a shredder can make a man

day thirty-nine: the best 29.99 we've spent
see this face...
this is the face of a boy that strangely loves shredding things.
it runs in his family,
and look at that face...
it is stinking cute.

Sunday, February 7, 2016


day thirty-eight: because i always think of the land before time song
it's the super bowl.
you know what that means...
devil eggs, chips and dip, wings, little smokies, and nothing healthy.

yay for friends that invite us to watch the football game,
and play games with them.

Saturday, February 6, 2016

he married a weirdo

day thirty-seven: what a champ
the strange part of our relationship is that he puts up with me...
and goes to the store, for the 3rd time, at 8 PM to find me mini chocolate chips.

i really needed them to be mini.

Friday, February 5, 2016

he'll probably hate me for this

day thirty-six: the most random
we went to the most random movie today,
but it was cheap.
we also ate too much popcorn and then had ice cream for dessert,
yay for being adults.
also you'd be surprised how many times we've had dessert for dinner...
sorry husband.
then we came home and put comfy clothes on and relaxed,
it was pretty perfect.

Thursday, February 4, 2016

the pictures on the walls

day thirty-five: chaos
we're in packing mode.
all but a few decorations are packed,
our bookshelves are nearly empty.
we move to utah in less than a month. 

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

the taking of tests

day thirty-four: proctors
i had to take two tests today.
96 on one.
84 on the other...
we'll pretend that second score isn't too bad.
plus i should get about 5 more points
yay for curved tests!

Tuesday, February 2, 2016
