My poor could have been starving husband

I seriously about dropped off the face of the earth. Not really, that just sounded like a good dramatic phrase to use. I have cooked a nice dinner ONCE in two weeks. I have had this two week course that ends tomorrow!!! Can't wait.

Derek has been so patient with me.
Happy me has been a bit crabby at times.
Happy me has been irritable and stressed.
Happy me has not been the best wife.I don't like it.

I would say that Derek has been starving....
but THERE'S A NEW CHEF IN TOWN!

Not this babe, but my babe!
D Walk is pro. He has learned to cook chicken, make tuna, fried rice and much more in these last two weeks! It's totally awesome!

I'm lovin' it...as long as he doesn't get better than me. I gotta stay on top in something in life.

Anniversary etc.

Our anniversary morning, we woke up to our doorbell ringing over and over again at about 6...
Poor Derek thought I was having something cute delivered :p
Pipes in the front lawn broke and were pouring through the wall.
Oh the joys of managing...
We would take this any day over other incidents though.

We are both so busy with school that we haven't been able to think much about Anniversary plans other than we just wanted to be together. And it turned out perfect.

Picture of sandbagging to protect the basement apartment.


A video of my cute husband sandbagging the flooding.

**Video is at the end of this post...it was being stubborn.**

While Derek was finishing up with the flooding outside, I secretly made a candlelit breakfast inside. While we ate, we made a list of memories to go inside a time capsule. It was so fun to reminisce!

After breakfast we headed to the U of U gym. We have been very loyal customers. We have weekly weigh ins and have a fitness goal for the cruise in August with the Walkers. It's been such a blast doing it together!

We spent the majority of the day studying. I was trying to cram the rest of my school work in before dinner so I didn't have to come home and study (still had to do school after dinner until after midnight...boo...my poor husband). To help me out before dinner, sweet Derek offered to do the grocery shopping. An hour later, he arrives home, we throw on fancy clothes for dinner, and Derek pulls up the car. Minutes after he leaves to get the car, there is a ring at the door. I thought it would be a managing problem. I open the door and Derek is at the door with flowers in hand. Mmmm it was the cutest!!

Then we were off to my favorite restaurant....Tucanos. I had my free birthday meal card which was totally awesome. After dinner, we walked around the mall popping in and out of stores like we love to do. We watched the fountains, and just had such a relaxing evening! It was so perfect.

Pictured below is the card Derek's mother made for us. Haha! Yes, that's a knife. She's so great. I seriously have the greatest in-laws. This was a picture taken up at the Walker's just after we were married. Is this true love or what?

Derek's little sister Mckenna made this cake. She is so darling! Maybe a little special too...she thinks there is 375 days in a year ;) **inside joke...so you don't just think I'm a meanie**

Here are some more pictures from babysitting.
He is going to be the cutest daddy ever! Seeing him with these kiddos made me wants kids so bad.

A foot rub?! Yeah, seriously guys, this man is a rock star. He is going to be embarrassed by all of these mushy comments, but seriously, he is such a stud.

This is my hair chopping buddy, AKA my sister, AKA brynn, AKA check out her most darling and inspiring blog HERE. She cut off over a foot! Isn't she the cutest?! And yes, that is the sweetest Jedi braid you'll ever see. She's a doll.

Overwhelmed with pictures yet? Ok last one. Another babysitting picture. Also my hair before the cut. This picture does make me miss my hair.

Sorries and mushies

Dear Blogetha,

I am truly sorry I have been neglecting you. I think about you often and visit your friends often. I blame school. I am learning about neglect in my family violence class that steals me 4 hours every day. I recognize I have been abusing you by neglecting you. I will be back on an almost daily basis soon enough. Just be patient. I miss you.

Love, Mom

P.S. I love your daddy so much.


Oh yeah, I cut my hair and threw in some more blonde.


We emergency babysat this cutie and his 2 brothers all weekend.
I love them so much.
It made school a bit difficult and it was also neglected, but we are trying to catch up now.

Yes I ignored the, "Don't cut it!" comments.
I am so sorry. I promise I value your opinions so much.
The hubsters has been wanting me to go short and blonde for a while now. So I did it, and I'm so glad I did. I'm enjoying short hair, even if the long looks better on me.
My next hair will be a bit blonder. (It's not as blonde in person as it looks in this pic)
I have gotten a lot of, "You look like a mom and like you should have a baby in your tummy", "you look older", and "I liked your last hair cut better"
and I surprisingly have loved the comments!
Why? I'm not sure cause I wasn't going for the "mom" look at age almost 21.
Hair is fun. I used to be one of those "I have never colored my hair and am proud of it" girls. Never again. I love coloring and changing hair styles!

Our anniversary is Saturday and we are CRAZY in love.
I never thought I'd feel more like a princess than I have this last year.
I respect him more than anyone in the world.
Love is such a beautiful thing isn't it?
I have tears when I think about it and my heart feels like it's bursting.
