Our Last 5 Months Together




So I may have had this blog for quite a long time. And I may not have written a single thing. But, I am planning on making up for that right now. With one really long blog covering the last 5 months of our marriage. Excuse me - 5 months and 3 days. So here we go. To begin, we got married October 18. Here are some pictures to remember that sacred day in history. :) The first one is my favorite picture. The second one is a picture we requested to make fun of my lovely older brother's kissing skills. I could add pictures all day. So two is plenty for the wedding. But, it was a perfect day and we loved every second of it and that all of our family and friends could be there. Now that we are married, we have done some other stuff. First we went on our honeymoon to San Diego. While wearing our hoodies as seen below, we were first mistaken as lesbians (poor Bobby) and then as a gay couple (poor me). Quite embarrassing...for the lady who decided to speak to strangers in an elevator. And, we went to the San Diego Temple. It was beautiful and a wonderful experience. Then, we went to a few Suns games. We have kinda lost interest in them now....cause they have been sucking. But, they won all the games we went to. (I think...haha.) This picture is from one we went to for Bobby's birthday (which was exactly 9 days after we got married, he turned 23...already old and hairy). We actually had good seats - like 9th rowish. The other ones we went to were free, therefore in the back row. I went to Carrie Underwood with my girls in Nov. I think Bobby went and played softball. I have one picture from it and it's of Celina and me.Let's see...after that came Thanksgiving. We ate at my family's and there was a LOT of stuffing. That's pretty much all I recall. We spent a day in Prescott shopping and going to some Prescott Christmas ritual at the courthouse. It was fun but very cold. We saw some missionaries who used to be in our Single's Ward. That was pretty random. And then came Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve at my house and Christmas Day mostly with Bobby's family (what was left of them...and now half of them are gone now). Over our break, we pretty much played Sequence with my grandparents the entire time. We went over there almost everyday. It was quite the competition.
Following Christmas came New Year's. This picture is very personal. Our first New Year's kiss as a married couple. Wait - make that our first New Year's kiss ever. Don't get too emotional. You will also see how well I can center pictures when I am holding the camera and taking the picture myself. Then, school started again. I was back to work and Bobby was starting school. He has already finished his Business Law class - with an A - he's so smart :). I also started a class in January to get my SEI Endorsement. That finished about 4 days ago thankfully. My birthday came in February. We went to Top Shelf with my family and Bobby took me to Outback. Bobby bought me Rascal Flatts tickets for my birthday and the concert was on March 12th. It was so, so, so, so, good. I loved it. Bobby wore shorts because "it was really really hot outside". He shook the whole time because he was so cold. :) It was funny. Two days before this, Bobby performed in the Preacher's Quorum Talent Show doing synchronized swimming.
It was pretty much the only funny thing of the night. I laughed. On March 14th it was our 1 year mark from our first date. On our first (accidental) date, we went to a spring training game. So, we repeated it and went to the game again. It was nice out. The last game we went to like two weeks earlier with Bobby's sister and her husband, was extremely hot. This one was perfect with a nice breeze and everything. This week was our spring break so we went to Vegas. We stayed at the Monte Carlo for two nights - anything longer is too long. We saw the Blue Man Group on Tuesday night. It turned out to be a stressful night cause we were late, weren't 100% sure where the Venetian was, crowds were HUGE on the strip because it was St. Patty's day and we didn't know if we were going to have time to eat. But it all worked out, we ate, we got there on time, and we weren't mugged. We shopped on the strip on Wednesday, did some slots, saw the "it was a waste of our time" Treasure Island show, the Bellagio fountains which I could watch all day, skipped out on our reservations at a restaurant at the Wynn because when we got there the steaks cost $60. We chose a cheaper version just down the hall at $30. It was the cutest restaurant with pink and yellow curtains and couches as seats. I loved it. And Bobby hit the blackjack tables after dinner coming out even. That changed when he went back Thursday morning to the $5 tables. He came out a little less than even ;). But, he had fun. We went to the Las Vegas Temple for temple number 3 (because obviously we have alread been to Mesa). It was very, very pretty as well. We rushed home to my little brother's 18th birthday dinner at Macayo's and were only late by 15 minutes. That pretty much sums up our 5 months in a short blog. Life is perfect (besides the fact that I will have 7 new kids in my class when I go back to work Monday). I plan on keeping up a little better from now on. :)
The last picture is just added because it shows what my husband loves to do everyday when he gets home from work. And he does it well. I love him so much :) Isn't he cute?

HAHAHAHA That has to be the funniest blog I have ever read! Rachel you crack me up!! By the way, I couldnt' help but notice that we have the same dress! The black, white, and pink one is what I wore after we got married! I laughed cus that is too funny. There was a girl in our ward in Tucson who wore that dress EVERY stinking week. So i never got to wear it, plus the girl was slightly overweight, so now Jared doesn't want me to wear it cus it reminds him of that girl! So sad...looks like you guys are having fun being married! 5 months huh?! Thats crazy! I think its weird how fast time goes once you get married!
