Out with the old-with the the new-er!

Well a couplde of days ago--our microwave decided to quit on us. Why, I am not quite sure! Everyone in our family has pretty much used that microwave. It was Kira and Aarons first microwave, my parents had used it. It sat in the shed for a while and then we got it. It worked fine, for about 2 weeks. We went looking around and the cheapest you can buy a new 1100 watt microwave for is 75 dollars! I guess it wouldnt be so bad if we hadnt just bought a brand new bed! So here are some pictures of our "upgrade"
Thank heavens for friends with spare microwaves :)

Got milk anyone?

We just got home from our honeymoon last Friday. That is 6 days ago, a mere 6 days. Alas, Benjamin has managed to consume (with a little bit of help from me) 7 WHOLE gallons of milk. I just purchased our 8th last night.
He went to go buy powered milk (so we didnt have to set out a seperate "milk fund" apart from our grocerys) and it was MORE EXPENSIVE!!! When did this happen??

I have no idea!

A tour of the mansion

Well we have finally settled into our own place! It has been so wonderful to come home to a place that I decorated, the flip side, that I also am in charge of keeping clean. Good thing I have a great husband around to help! He does quite a fair share of the work. We usually like to suprise each other with a clean house when we are working. It works out quite nicely! So here are a few of the pictures!

~Always A Start For Everything~

I guess once the wedding was over I was thrust into a surreal and strange place, that I guess some like to call the "the real world." I have yet to accept such place, but I figure the least I can do is wave goodbye to my days of being on myspace and convert the new energy into a blog. My two sisters, Kira and Kristen, swear by them it seems. They are constantly uploading pictures and regaling the stories of their youngsters. While that milestone has yet to come upon us, I guess we could keep track of our life thus far, and enabling our friends and relatives to try to keep up with us, and so our story begins.....

Benjamin and I were sealed in the Idaho Falls Temple on the 3rd of January--we are almost ready to embark on our 11th days of j
oyous marriage :) Our reception was held that night in Chubbuck--it was amazing. More than anything I could have ever asked for. Kira and my mother were the main people behind it. They organized everything, and got everything scored away. I was so impressed, and incredibly greatful. I dont think those two will ever know how much they mean to me. My other sister Kristen, while far away in Arizona, was pressed for something to do to help. She was just a joy to have up here! My whole family was amazing, and that is including my inlaws! All of 'em! I know I have only known them a short time--but when its right, its just right!! Which means I should hunker down and give everyone a timeline of Benjamin and I--but pay attention--it is very short!
