Livin Ze Life!

For the past two weeks I have not HAD to do anything. Which is good because I have been looking fug-a-ma-lug in my glasses the past week and a half. I love when I don't HAVE to do anything because I don't usually like having all these things that I HAVE to do. The only things I do everyday are make my husb dinner and go to the gym after. Other than that I have found other things to do. Chris started school again so during the day I usually clean the apartment and after that I have worked on my scrapbook, prepared picnics for our lunch, caught some TV series marathons (Biggest loser, Project Runway), shopped around for apartment decor, searched for new recipes and attempted to make them, read a book, redecorated our entire my head, had a couple interviews, you know things like that. Nights are way more fun with date nights, watching our TV shows, doing things with friends and stuff. But here are some of my daytime accomplishments:

I made a wreath! I really wanted something cute for our door but all the wreaths I see in stores are not very attractive so I decided to make one of those guys myself!
I also nurtured my flower named Amb. Amber gave me this cute plant for graduation and I felt bad for it because all my plants always die. But I have been taking care of it and a new bud just bloomed. It makes me feel springy!I know its sad but I gotta have somethin to take care of when I'm alone. I need a dog, a baby, or a job. Just kidding Mom. But seriously I need a dog. I already have the one I want picked out and the name and everything. We plan on getting one as soon as we get into a new place. But we each want a different kind (I obviously think mine is cuter). I bet you can guess who wants which one...

I graduated from college and it was so wonderful! My Mom and Dad came up for the celebration and we had a grand old time. We also had a fun engagement/graduation after party. Plus I got some great gifts which is always fun!
At graduation! I was the first Comm major to walk across!With my cute parents. It was windy!
At the grad/engagement party. My BFF Mckae got engaged last week!

My parents are giving me LASIK for my graduation. I am so excited/nervous! So there should be a good/interesting post in a couple of weeks. I go to Utah April 30th for the surgery. I plan to give a full account of what happens so stay tuned...

Other than LASIK I have so much to look forward to this summer. We plan to take a few trips... up to Washington in June for Chris' sister's graduation, down to St.George/Vegas in June for a Conner family reunion/to have fun, to California in July for McKae's wedding, and to Texas sometime after that to meet our new little niece Dub-Dee! I just can't wait for everything!

Besides all those plans I need to find something to occupy my time aka A JOB! Which I have found is pretty much impossible here in this little town. I'm sure I will work soon but I have to wait until after my surgery because I don't want to ask for a week and a half off before I even start. We'll see what happens!

Best moments of my life!

Right now I am experiencing one of the greatest feelings in the world. I have completely finished all work for all of my classes and not only am I done with this semester but I AM DONE WITH SCHOOL FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE! I've never felt so free! Lately I have loved thinking about the past 4 1/2 years i've spent in Rexburg. I feel so blessed that I was able to attend such a great University. I feel like I have grown up so much and learned a lot about myself. This is also where I got my complete education (I learned nothing in High School). This is also where I have built up my testimony of the church and temple. And where I met my husband! I've gone through good times and bad times. Good weather and bad weather. Fun party nights and sleepless study nights. Just so much has happened since I have been here and it is almost bittersweet to be done with it. More sweet than bitter but still.

You know those moments that you just love? It just is the best feeling for that one moment? Just for a moment it is the greatest thing you've ever smelled, felt, heard, saw, tasted. The second best thing to feeling those is really thinking hard and realizing what they are. Here are some of my best moments:

1. Right after I have turned in a huge project that I don't have to spend anymore time on.

2. When I have finished putting on my makeup for the day and it feels and looks perfect (because then it is faded an hour later)

3. When I bite into a perfect chocolate chip cooking, fresh from the over, but had the perfect amount of cooling time.

4. When I am laying on my side facing the wall and Chris wraps his arms around me from behind and I feel so safe and loved.

5. When I hear the voice of a member of my family.

6. Right when I walk in the door and I see that someone has a delicious plate of food just waiting for me.

7. Right after finding and purchasing the perfect item (usually shoes or purses) for the perfect price.

8. The moment someone else sees a surprise I planned for them.

9. When i'm sitting around just chillin and I realize that all the people i'm around are those I feel completely comfortable with and can have fun doing nothing with.

10. When my phone starts ringing and its the ringtone of someone I want to talk to.

11. The day after I had a hard workout and I feel just the right amount of soreness in one moment when I try to sit up and it hurts but it feels soooo good!

12. The moment I wake up and open my eyes and see my husby laying next to me.

13. When someone tells me they love me and I can tell they mean it.

This past Saturday night at like 1 in the A.M or so Chris had gone to bed before me so all the lights were off in our a-p-t. I got ready for bed then went to get into bed. Then I realized our touch lamp in the living room was still on. It was on the lowest setting so it was giving barely any light but it was buggin me so I went to touch it off. When I got to the lamp I thought for a second if I should turn on the hall light so I would be able to get back but I just thought "eh...its a small apartment, I'll just feel my way." But it was DARK..I'm talkin like PITCH. So I got to the kitchen counter..I felt for the corner of the counter then thought "ok I got here so now its just a quick little run down this tiny little hallway and jump into bed!" WRONG-O! I miscalculated and I guess you have to go to the left a little bit to get the the hallway or else you might run into A WALL! And that's exactly what I did...face first! I busted my lip open and I had big red spots on my forehead and next to my nose. I went in to wake Chris up and said "Baaaabe...I hit my face on the wall and I'm bleeding." And he was like "say honest". He didn't even laugh! He was so concerned and he went and got me ice for my HUGE swollen lip!

I took some pictures the next morning. It doesn't look nearly as bad as it really was but I just like to put images with my stories. My lip is about half the size it was that night and there is a bruise just starting to come in above my right eyebrow (my right..your left). Just look for it right above my eyebrow thats closest to my hair. You can barely see it in the pictures but its there!
