Utah summer!

So as many of you know, Ben and I are actually back from St. Louis. We are so sad to be back, but Ben was having some health issues. We decided to come back home and get it all figured out where he is more comfortable. He did get his old job back with a promotion, which is nice! And we are so happy that we got to be at the airport the day his parents got home from their mission in Hawaii. What a fun day! It was so nice for me to meet them in person. We had skyped a few times but that's all.

For right now Ben and I found a great apartment in Provo. We love it! It's about 4 blocks north of Center Street so there is a lot of stuff to do. Ben is taking the summer off from school and working full time, and I'm looking for a job! So if anyone hears of anything good, let me know! And.... that's our life for now.. haha not much to it, but we are happy and that's all that matters. :)

New Stuff...

So we got a dog! His name is Oliver, we call him Ollie for short. He is a white Schnauzer, or as the vet said, Champagne or Blonde. He sure is cute.. when he isn't being a bad boy! He LOVES to bite. He also loves to run and chase us around the park and he has floppy ears that go crazy in the wind.

This is the first day we got him!

This is a picture of Ollie in trouble after digging up my mom's flower beds! I was trying to get pictures of the dirt in his beard but he wiggles too much haha

He loves to jump and try to bite my phone when I am taking pictures of him 

Here he is being a good dog :) 

Ben and I are leaving for St. Louis for tomorrow! It's crazy that it is FINALLY here. I'm so excited, and nervous at the same time. I really hope everything turns out well! We will be driving the whole way, it is about 20 hours. I will post updates as we go along if we have internet! I will try to do a lot of posts during the summer, since that was my sole purpose of this blog. To keep family updated.

First post!

This is my first post ever! I'm not really sure what I'm doing :) I decided to do a blog since Ben and I will be moving to St. Louis for the summer, this way our families can see what's going on!

Ben and I got married March 26, 2011. The most perfect day ever! It was a small ceremony at my parents house with close family and friends. Both Ben's parents and my brother are on missions, so they couldn't be there. Ben's parents are in Hawaii, and are due to come back in May of this year. They were able to Skype and watch the ceremony. Although we wished they could be there so badly, we were just happy we had the opportunity for them to Skype. Here are a few pictures from the day. We just got the pictures back today from Lindsey Orton Photography. She did our pictures and is a very close friend of mine. We are so happy with the pictures!! 

Exchanging rings... 

The Cake...

Lots of kisses...

And we'll wrap it up with another kiss :)

That's pretty much it in a nutshell. 'Til next time!
