those are just a few of the many million instagram pictures i have taken lately. there is no way i could post all of them. if you want to see them all check out my tumblr here. man i have been in a blogging funk lately. i thought things would slow down once sean graduated.. but it seems like life has gotten even crazier. work is so busy for us both and our callings have been taking up a lot of our time. can't complain though! life is good and i love having my husband back. life is nuts but at least we get to see each other more. i play on a women's softball team on monday nights and we play on a co-ed team on friday nights. wednesday nights we have mutual so our only free nights are tuesday and thursday and they seem to fill up pretty quickly. we haven't had milk in our fridge in almost a week. i feel like there is no time to get to the store!
we are also buckling down and trying to pay off sean's student loans as fast as we can now that he is graduated. that is one of the reasons that i am grateful work is so busy for me. even though it's hard it is worth it. we just paid off 4 of them that were already accruing interest on and now have 4 left that don't start accruing interest until december. our goal is to pay them off within a year. that means back to ramen and toast for every meal! i hope that we can pull it off. we are going to be pretty boring people for a while. student loans suck!
moses is as cute as ever. except we came home last night and he had thrown up all over the bed. awesome! not so cute. gotta love that. i lay blankets down though for him when we leave so at least all we had to wash were the blankets. he is still going on his dog walks and loving life. we got him a new harness collar thing and he behaves so well when he gets walked with that. it's a lifesaver.
we also got some new patio furniture! sean has been working so hard in our yard. he is so good at it. i wish i could take some credit for it. we even planted a new pine tree! i did help with that... look at the cute baby pine cones! i love our yard. we put bistro lights on the umbrella and it is so nice to sit out there at night. someday we will get a fence... someday.
we have spent lots of time playing with our nieces and nephew and families. we did some hiking last weekend and also got to see the solar eclipse on sunday! our neighbors had some x-ray paper so we got a picture of the eclipse with that and our camera. it was super neat. my eyes still hurt though.
last night my uncle and his girlfriend mara took us to chef's table to celebrate sean graduating. it was so delicious and so nice of them to do that for us! after that we headed over to sean's parents to have cake for his younger brother devin's birthday! he is turning 25 today. happy birthday devin!!
we are so excited for this weekend. sean's company is treating all of their employees to a weekend in park city. we get to stay at the park city waldorf astoria hotel in a 1 bedroom suite. they cover all of our meals and we even get to have a smore party one of the nights. we haven't had a vacation together in a while and we are really looking forward to the 3 day weekend! anyway, that is about all that is new with us!
