Life has flown by the past month! It’s been insane. I sometimes find myself trying to just breathe through the craziness. A little update from the last time I was able to blog…. I turned 24. I am excited for a new year and new possibilities. Trent and I have a lot riding on this year so let’s hope it all goes well.
We recently got new furniture as well for our living room! We got fake leather couches. They are great and comfy.
I also got to speak in sacrament in August and the reason they asked me to speak was because they needed someone to cry. I love our 2nd counselor and that he would actually tell me that! The first talk they gave me was on premarital sex directed for the teens and the second I was told to help them bring the spirit in through my tears. Other than that things have been busy with school and teaching, as well as me and Trent doing our masters classes. We both turned in our Capstone proposals on Friday and boy did that feel good.
In September we got to go through the temple with one of our young men that Trent has gotten rather close with. It was great to see him go through the temple and soon see him off on his mission. We are so proud of him and all that he has accomplished.
When we had labor day off we spent the day painting new furniture as well as going to the Mid South Fair. Boy was that a mess. I sometimes can’t believe how some people live. Who am I to judge though, I went to Taco Bell and Wendys today for lunch. 🙂
In the middle of May we celebrated Tom’s birthday. It was fun to see him get older and get to go to a traditional Majestic dinner.
We also went to the University of Memphis game that our neighbors gave us free tickets too! It was a great stadium and a lot of fun to get to see a game at the Liberty Bowl. That night we also played BYU in the annual BYU vs Utah game. UTAH killed them! That was a great thing to have for bragging rights this year!
Two weekends ago, Trent’s mom came into town and spent a few days with us. The night she got in, my school played Trent’s school in football. My girls performed and Cindy was able to come see a part of how things go here in the Memph. That night we went to went to BBQ for dinner and got to just catch up. Saturday Trent took the LSAT and did AWESOME I can tell. He will get scores soon! looking forward to knowing what he got. While he was taking the test we went and got pedicures, saw Memphis, went to some farmers markets and that night while he was gone we went and saw Don’t Back Down. It was a great movie and I recommend that everyone sees it. The next night our friends from our ward had us all over for dinner and it was so tasty!
The next week we celebrated our 3 year anniversary! Go us! We got dinner at PF Changs to celebrate the night and Trent got me some really cute clothes for my anniversary. I also got him a Manchester United jersey that he wanted, so he got spoiled too! The end of the week I took Thursday and Friday off and we headed down to New Orleans. We had a cute little apartment for our stay and got some really good food.
-Long drive home!
That pretty much sums up the last month. It’s been busy but a lot of fun! Here goes to the rest of the month!
