One week left!

Ahhhh ...school. It has definitely been the death of me this semester. I cannot wait to be on my way to Boise for the bowl game and done with finals! It is my last semester on campus taking classes. This spring I will be doing an internship and then...GRADUATION! Brad found out this week that even though he will be graduating in the summer he can walk in the spring so we are excited to celebrate together. We are also getting excited for our trip to Indonesia in May! We have been saving since we were married and can't wait to go.

Lately, life has been good. We spent Thanksgiving in Logan this year. Jared and I had to work and serve Thanksgiving dinner at the restaurant during the day so the family waited until later for us to eat. It was a great meal and Teresa made yams with marshmallows for me even though nobody else likes them that way :) After a long day we hit up Wallmart with the crazies to get tons of cheap Blu-rays, that I am way excited about. All I can say is it is a good thing we are pretty big people and don't get pushed around easily.

Friday we went to breakfast at Herm's and set up Christmas decorations. Saturday was the last home game. We were sad to see the season coming to end, but what a great ending! WAC CHAMPS and heading to their second bowl game! When I came to Utah State 4 years ago I never would have thought it was possible. Soccer, Volleyball, and Football won the WAC conference this year. The Utah State Football team is currently ranked 20th and the new conditioning complex is half way up. It is definitely a good time to be an Aggie!

Birthday week

I am officially 22 years old! This last weekend was the first in about 3 months that I got to spend with Brad, because it was a bye week. Friday my family drove up for a funeral so we met them in Provo for a birthday dinner and hanging out. It's not very often we get to all be together so it was really fun, even if only for 24 hours. My favorite birthday card was from my baby sister, Ashley, who said I am "really cool and exceptionally pretty!" Haha love her.

Tuesday Brad surprised me with some of my favorite treats and a few presents. We went during lunch and he bought me a new iPad (that I am writing this on write now and absolutely love)! We went out to eat that night with Brads parents, Jared, his girlfriend Kierra and grandma Lindley.


My highlight of the week was Wednesday night. As soon as Brad finished football we drove down to Provo for Trent to open his mission call. He has been called to serve in Milan, Italy, Italian speaking! It was so fun being there and we are so excited for him! I love my little brother so much and know he will be an awesome missionary

Texas and Halloween

This last weekend was a fun road trip to Texas. We were excited for this game when the schedule came out because it is close to Derek and Lisa's families. It was really cool for Brad to have his entire family together cheering for him. The Aggies won 48-17 keeping up the undefeated streak in the WAC!


After the game we waited for Brad to come out of the locker room and were able to visit with him for 20 minutes before the bus was leaving to the airport to take him home. As I was watching him walk away I had a sweet older lady I have never met come up and tell me that she was touched by watching Brad and I with each other and she could tell that we truly loved each other. It was so sweet of her, she made me start to cry. I love Brad so much! He's worked so hard and I'm so proud of him for all he has accomplished with Football and school. It was nice to have that sweet reminder from a stranger of how lucky I really am!


                        
You cant tell but Brad is the one in the middle standing on the WAC logo

Even though Brad flew home the rest of us had fun hanging out the rest of the weekend. We ate fried pickles and cat fish for dinner at a local restaurant that was amazing! Sunday morning six of the nieces and nephews stared in their ward primary program. That afternoon we had dinner together and went on a tour of Seguin (the city they live in). It was a quick fun trip to Texas!

Halloween!

We're not huge into Halloween, but we did a couple fun things this year. Monday night we carved pumpkins with our friends Parker and Tiauna and James and Lexi.

Tuesday we rented and watched a scary movie, The Sixth Sense. Okay so it wasn't that scary, but I wasn't going to go any scarier than that. Then on Wednesday we went to Brads Parents for dinner in a pumpkin and to hand out treats to cute kids at the door ( that part was more for me). After we went to a party at Matt's house and decorated cookies and played games with friends. It was nice not having to work for a couple days and getting to hang out with each other.
