Boring Post

So, the last few days at work have been miiiiiiightly slow. So here's my treat to you, entitled
"What I do at work when I'm bored and don't want to do the things that I know I should do when I don't have anything else to do".

- Blog
- Stalk Other People's Blogs. I have read through every blog that I follow, almost entirely. And sometimes I just push the "Next Blog" button at the top of the screen and stalk blogs of people I don't even know.
- Work on finances. It may seem boring to you... but I'm already bored. So it's not so boring as it normally would be. I always do my budgeting on a post-it note at work.
- Visit sites with comics to make me laugh. Favorite is
- Doodle. It is so 6th grade, but I just can't help myself sometimes.
- Eat. I am totally a boredom eater, especially at work. And since I have limited choices it usually ends up being candy. And then I pay with a queasy stomach that night.
- Facebook. Really this consists of signing in to Facebook every 15 minutes to see if anything exciting has happened. And I'm more than usually disappointed.
- Go to the bathroom. This is a great way to break up the monotony of sitting at a desk all day.
- Text my husband every 20 minutes to see what he's doing.

So there you have it. Now you have some ideas for when you get bored!

I don't care who you are, this stuff is funny.
These are some of my favorites from this website.

That's really all I wanted to say today! Hope everyone is having a great day! Remember to laugh :)

One Year Anniversary!

I've been uber excited to post about this because we had an AMAZING anniversary. What Alex did for me could not have been any more perfect. Read on!

On Saturday we went up to Zion, with the original intent to do a hike, but it was dang cold! So we just went to lunch and walked around the shops. We found guns!

They were really heavy, just like the real old-fashioned guns.

I bought a cute new bracelet because Alex made me :)

Ok, so I love Colbie Caillait, right? Right. Alex knows this, like a good husband :)
So I come out of the bedroom on Sunday morning (our actual anniversary) and the song "Bubbly" by her was playing, a bubble machine was blowing bubbles right in front of me and the walls were covered in balloons that were filled with reasons that he loves me. I know, right??!!!?? Best. Anniversary. Ever. I stood in the doorway and totally cried for a minute :) I'm such a sucker for romantic stuff. Here are some pictures. Sorry they're fuzzy, I think the flash was turned off.

So basically it was amazing. I should've gotten some pictures of what I got him...but I didn't. I did a big print of one of our wedding pictures for our bedroom and some vinyl lettering. And I made a book of pictures and memories from our first year.

For dinner that night our awesome friend, Dan the MexiCAN came to make us a gourmet meal!! It literally was probably the best meal I've ever had. Grab a napkin, cuz you might drool when you see the pictures :)

So there you have it. Our anniversary was amazing and I am so grateful to be married to someone who loves me for who I am and who puts up with me when I hurt myself a lot and whine about it, like I have the last few days...
Check out this awesome burn from an epic incident with a Cup o' Noodles:

It hurt SO bad! But it doesn't hurt anymore, and it didn't blister, so I'm counting my blessings. So there is what's new in our life. Pretty exciting, eh?

I want to blog, but I was planning on blogging about our anniversary, but I don't have pictures. So the anniversary blog will come later. I just feel like typing my random thoughts.

I'm at work, and they are currently painting the wall that is 10 feet from my desk and I feel as if I may asphyxiate from the fumes. Sometimes I feel like I may asphyxiate from life, is that normal? I don't even know what it is that makes me feel that way. Maybe that my life is so different than I ever thought it would be. You grow up with this picture in your mind of what life is and then you actually start living it and it's really not anything like you expected.

Our P90X endeavor is slowly deteriorating into nothingness. It all starts with one day when you don't want to get up, and then you don't have time after work to do it... It's been a solid week since we've done any exercises. We fail.

Dan is an amazing man. We need to find him a good woman.

Is it bad that I don't really care when some friends stop being my friend? To me the relationships that are best are the ones that I don't have to work on all the time. I have great friends that live far away and I see once every 6 months, text once a month maybe, and that's enough. And I still love them just as much as I did when I hung out with them every day. I shouldn't have to work so hard at keeping someone happy.

How about the fact that I don't really have any girl friends? Really the only person we hang out with is Dan, which is fine enough by me. He's rad. And he makes us amazing food. Always down for anything at any time, amazing friend who will do anything for us and he is so low maintenance. Why can't girls be like that? Hence...why I don't have any girl friends.

This might get a little deep here, but I feel like a big part of me has gone missing. And I keep trying to get it back, but it's like it doesn't want to. Like a 3-year old being pulled away from the ball pit at McDonald's. But here's the big question: do I want it back? It seems like I don't, judging by the measure of my efforts. Why now? Why this point in my life for this to happen? It seems out of place. Out of context. That's not how it's supposed to be. All my life this part of me has been...well, a part of me. Even when I was totally ignoring it, I still knew it was there, just waiting for me to come over and ask it out to lunch. But now it's just gone AWOL. I try to text it sometimes, albeit half-heartedly, to see if it wants to go get a non-committal drink, but it never answers the way it used to. Maybe it just doesn't want to be part of me anymore.

So there you have it, the deep ramblings of a somewhat lost girl on an overcast morning.

One year this weekend I married the love of my life. Can't you tell in this picture how I just adore him? I still do, only it's more so than that day because I know him even more now. I have absolutely loved this first year with him, getting to know him, getting to know who I am when I am with him.

He holds my hand through everything, good and bad.

He makes me laugh and we can be crazy together.

He looks SOOOO good in a tux :) And he loves kids.

He still takes me on dates and makes me fall more in love with him every day.

I fit perfectly in his arms.

He jumps like a freakin ninja.

And I know that he will love and cherish me for all our years to come.

And I will love him forever.

New Year!

Well probably the craziest thing I can think of right now is that Alex and I have been married for almost a year. A year?! What the?! Crazy.

Other crazies going on in my life:
Managing money in a way that I have never known.
Thinking about actually having babies.

I guess that's all I can think of. Not as much crazy as I thought. P90X has been totally killer, but I am proud to say that we made it through the first week alive. On the first day of the workout Alex threw up and I went back to bed for three hours, so still being alive is really saying something.

Alex and I want to get really serious about getting completely out of debt. I have a really strong desire to be out before we have a baby. Baby. Whoa. It has just recently begun hitting me, the baby thing. I've always thought "Ya, I'll have babies like two years after I'm married, I'll be a stay at home mom, it'll be great." But seriously? Seriously. It's really scary when it's staring you in the face, you know? Right now Al doesn't make enough money for me to quit, and let's face it, I don't want to quit. I LOVE my job and I will probably never find again the awesomeness that I have found here on every level.

I also have to let you know that Alex and I decided to not get a new camera on account of getting an old one fixed for $15 as opposed to a new one for $200. So we will spend the extra money on getting out of debt! YAY!
