Apartment Fever!

I don't know if its because I'm married or what, but I absolutely hate living in an apartment! We live on the bottom floor below a family that has 2 kids. It makes it really hard for me and Brandon to do homework and to just relax. So because we are having apartment fever (mostly me) I watch HGTV all the time! You name the show and I've probably seen it. Needless to say I am getting some great ideas for our future home. I can't wait until we get settled in a place where we can actually buy a house! I'm sure I get on Brandon's nerves because I tell him that almost daily! But we only have to put up with the noise for another 6 months and then we will be leaving Rexburg and onto our next adventure.

I am actually watching House Hunters right now. (I know, I'm pretty lame!)

Brandon and I are about half-way through the semester. It hasn't been too bad of a semester so far, but I am still so ready for it to be over. I have really bad senioritis. We get to register for our last semester of college next Monday. We are so excited that we are almost done! It seems a little surreal how close we are. Brandon needs to find an internship for the Winter semester. Hopefully he will find one that he likes and they like him so we can get settled in a place fairly quickly. But only time will tell. I just hope we end up somewhere that is much much bigger than Rexburg, ID. :)

Life Update

I knew I was going to be horrible at keeping up with this thing, but I didn't think I would be this bad! Well let me update you on what we've been up to.

- We went down to Utah for Brandon's brother Dennis' wedding at the beginning of April. It was really nice to get away from Rexburg even if it was just for a few days. While we were down there we got to see my sister Kamilla for a few hours. I am so glad we were able to see her since we won't see her until July now!
- I turned 22 on April 12th! Brandon spoiled me by getting me the first season of Modern Family and Just Dance. He decorated the apartment and made me a homemade cookie cake (my favorite) and he cooked steak for dinner! We were also able to Skype with my family on my birthday which I just loved! I miss them so much.
- I finished my tax internship on April 16th. It was a really good experience and I definitely learned a lot. I am so glad it is over though. I absolutely hated driving to Idaho Falls everyday and we did not like how much we were spending on gas either.
- We started a new semester on the 17th. This is mine and Brandon's second to last semester and we are so happy to be almost done! I am taking 15 credits and Brandon is taking 12. We are both working 20 hours a week at our on-campus jobs. We are so lucky to have jobs that revolve around our school schedule. It is so nice!

- My baby sister Jessa turned 17! I can't believe she is almost graduated from high school. Where did the time go? Pretty soon my parents will have an empty nest. I wonder what they are going to do? :)
- Brandon's fast grad was approved! It is now official that we will both be graduating together in December! I can't wait for that day to come so we can move on to another chapter of our lives! :)
- We purchased plane tickets to visit my family in South Carolina for 2 weeks in July/August! I am so incredibly excited for our trip! I miss my family and my hometown so much! I have been out west for way too long.

I can't wait to see this again!

Besides school and work, we don't have a lot going on. The weather is starting to warm up, finally. We actually took out our fan from storage just the other day. I am so glad the weather is getting warmer, but I know I will start complaining since we live in an apartment with no air conditioning :(

We have been blissfully married for almost 9 months now! I can't believe how fast time is passing. Pretty soon we will be planning our anniversary!

Well that's it for now. Sorry that we aren't too exciting. Maybe I'll have more stories to tell once the weather stays warm!
