Happy 19th.

I hope you had a good day.
I know I sure did.

this picture was taken before we were in love.

Dec. 2009

Actually, this is the first picture taken together. ever.
At the end of the semester I wanted to get a picture with Benji
but I wasn't sure how to approach it.
I told one of my roommates I wanted a picture and she simply said just ask him and take a picture.
For some reason I was still really nervous about it.
But I finally asked him. He said no.
And he kept avoiding it.
I told you he was a party pooper.
But then finally right before we left for the semester I had a roommate take some.

But this was before he ever played with my hair at night to fall asleep.
Before he ever saw the truly silly and goofy side of me.
Before we took a ton of pictures in this same pose.
Even with my hand awkwardly stabbing his stomach.
Before he realized I am an anal clean freak.
Before he taught me to embrace different kinds of people, and things.
Before we ever had a disagreement and then came to understand each other.
Before we had all of our inside jokes between each other.
Before we realized, we are very much different from each other
and it doesn't really matter.
Before so many things, that have made us today.
So glad that we are a "we".
So glad we are more than just husband and wife,
but we are best friends.

Weekend Recap.

Friday night was date night.
Johnny Carino's for dinner.
And Colombiana later.

Saturday was exploring day.
For my birthday last year Benji and I went to see two waterfalls
north of Rexburg, called Mesa Falls.
While we were there we went on a little walk
had a picnic and craved our initials in a tree.
Earlier, this week we had the idea to go back to find
our tree to see what the craving looked like.

Last year.                                                                                                          On Saturday.

First Day of School.

Today is the first day of school.
For Benji.
It still feels weird being out of school.

Saturday, after we went exploring we stopped in
Rexburg and saw some of Benji's friends.
We went to the apartment complex that I lived in for 3 years.
It felt interesting to be back there 
and see so many people moving in and remember all the times I moved in. 

Benji wouldn't let me take a picture as he was leaving for school.
Like you used to do in elementary school.
He is a party pooper.
Here is one Cassie took for us.

Weekend Recap.

Saturday after driving down to Utah
I spent the afternoon with my Dad and brother.
I am always entertained by the conversations
that happen with my brother around.

As we were leaving church on Sunday
two people in a row made comments
about my brother and I being married.
It was awkward.

Sunday evening I picked Benji up from the airport.
Post and pictures soon to come.
On the drive back he talked me ear off with stories.
He even made a list of all the things he wanted to tell me about.
Very unlike my husband.
It made me laugh. 

Monday morning was spent going back to school shopping
for Benji.
I actually got more stuff than he did.
Our loot.

For lunch before we left we went to my Uncle's house.
My cousin asked Benji for them to shoot his BB gun together.

Benji and Garion wearing their safety glasses.
Can never be too careful? 
I guess.

Expressions of Love.

Make them frequent.
They mean more than anything.

Destination Date.

Benji went to Dallas to see Steffen this week.
I knew he was going to a have hard time leaving him  
when the time came.

So, I wanted to come up with something for us to do 
after he got back.

I made a list of possible places to eat and for dessert and something for us to do.
Then I came up with a symbol that represented each place.
I tried really hard to come up with symbols that would not give 
it away easily.

Then Benji got to pick where we ate, what we did, and what would be for dessert.

The dessert options. 

Dinner options.

Our activity options. 

What he ended up choosing.
Which consists of frozen yogurt, a new restaurant we haven't tried yet,
and golfing.

August Favorites.

I just realized our previous post was the 100th post!
That is pretty exciting!

As I mentioned here this month has been
busy and pretty lame.

Benji has officially stopped working
at Olive Garden.
He is super excited to be able to just focus on school!
I am excited for us to be on the same schedule as each other!
We definitely loved that about this month!

Benji has been begging for new cologne
and he finally was able to decide on some we both liked.
And we love it!
It is the Gucci Guilty.

Guilty Pour Homme

While we were in Jackson here
we came across this perfume for me that we both
really liked and it has been this past month I have really gotten into it.
It is the Apothia Pearl.

We have enjoyed spending the last month exploring
and doing new things around our house
but we or I am so ready for fall to be here!
We already have a ton going on in September that we are excited for!
