A New Address

Next week, we will no longer live in BYU On-Campus Housing. Oh-so exciting!

As we were going to have to move this summer anyways, we've been on the look-out for an awesome apartment... and boy did we find one!

The only problem was the move-in date: April 1st. Obviously, we decided the apartment was worth the immediate move and so we are officially moving this weekend.

We signed the contract, paid the deposit/rent and received our new key today. That means we'll slowly move the boxes we've already packed over to our new place this week and Saturday everything else will be packed into a truck and moved down the street. Literally, we are moving down the same street (900 E) just like 15 blocks or something.

Anyways, once things have settled down we'll post some pictures, but I will leave you with a photo of the outside of the complex. It's pretty small, only 6 or so other apartments!

Here's a run-down:
-2 levels
-3 bedrooms (one big room and 2 small rooms)
-1.5 baths
-Big (at least to me) kitchen
-Washer and Dryer
-Pretty close to my office
-and last but not least awesome chili pepper wall paper in the kitchen (jk... but they did say we could take it down and paint)
My birthday resulted in many newly acquired goods.

First, a photoshoot of the shirts my mother sent..

(what an amazing model...)

Next, I received this from dear husband, Christian...

as well as these
(though I may have had something to do with picking them out)...

Then I was treated to a night on the town,

which of course includes

allowing Christian to place these on our dresser holding hands as we went to sleep.

Adorable, right?

Valentine's Day 2009

It snowed.

We built a snow-fairy with some of our primary kids.And Christian got me flowers.

Class Project Update:
Christian's plant is now this big and must be supported by a toothpick.
