The Sky is Falling

Travis is my knight in shining armor. When I fell wakeboarding and cracked my head open, he jumped into the lake and rescued me. I love thinking about how he jumped in and pulled me to safety without hesitation. Today,we had another knight in shining armor experience. Let me tell you about it:

Travis was in the bathroom, taking his time. While he was using the restroom, I was making the bed. I pulled off the comforter to fix the sheets. After the sheets were perfectly perfect in every way, I picked the comforter up to finish making the bed. I happened to pick the comforter up upside down. So I kind of threw it in the air to flip it around. (Innocent, right?)

Then, BOOM!! The light cover on the ceiling came off and hit me straight on the head. I guess I knocked it off when I tried to flip the blanket. I screamed and fell on the bed covering my head. I was sure I was bleeding everywhere! The memory of bleeding from the head at the lake came to me and I felt like the same thing was happening again. But I wasn't bleeding. Travis started yelling from the bathroom because he heard all the ruckus. I looked around and glass was everywhere. The stinkin thing had shattered when it hit my head. Somewhere in the middle of this, I started crying. I was scared because of what happened, the freakin thing hurt when it hit my head, and I was worried that the managers to our apartment would be angry that I broke it. Valid reasons to cry, right? So Travis comes running out of the bathroom, super worried about me. He had to cut his business short. haha. He finds me half laughing and half crying. So he calmed me down and now I feel like a child with this huge "goose-egg" on my head!

I hope you can tell how big that stinkin bump is.

I'm sorry light fixture cover. You were so beautiful.
Travis is amazing and always comes to my rescue, no matter what he is busy doing! haha. I just love him so much. And my head hurts. haha

Trying New Things

When I find something I like, I'm the kind of person that doesn't venture very far to try anything new. Travis and I LOVE Red Robin. Whenever we go out to dinner for our date night, we always ask each other where we want to go. Somehow it always ends up being Red Robin. Anyways, I love the Bacon Burger and Travis switches between the Bonzai Burger and some chicken sandwich he likes. We went to Red Robin last night and Travis decided to try something new. He ordered the Bleu Ribbon Burger. So I thought, "Heck, if he can try something new, why can't I?" So I ordered the Bonzai Burger. (It has teriyaki sauce and pineapple on it!)

Travis was very excited for me to try this burger. It's the best burger on the menu, according to him.
This is his excited face. haha
I was a little scared to try the burger. 

So I tried the Bonzai Burger and Travis ate his burger. Travis said the bleu cheese on his burger was just way too powerful. And I thought the Bonzai Burger was alright, but it was a little weird having the sweetness of the pineapple on the burger. (Don't tell Travis, but I'm kind of craving it right now! I guess I did like it. haha)

These are Travis's and my reaction on how our burgers tasted.












It was an adventure trying new things. The burger wasn't the best, but it was something I have never tasted before. So I guess I should try new things more often. haha.

Travis had the day off. So we also saw Cars 2! It was soooo stinkin good! It was a pretty funny movie. I was laughing pretty hard in a few parts. Travis and I walked around downtown Idaho Falls for a couple hours. Besides the scary thugs that hang out in the alleys, it was pretty fun! There's cute little shops full of things I would probably never buy. haha. But it was still fun spending the day with Travis. It's always good being with him.

Sunday Sharing

This video just hit me hard! We need to slow down and enjoy life everyday. I think I'm an emotional wreck, because it almost made me cry! haha. I hope you enjoy it to. I just had to share.

Happy Father's Day!

My dad is the best man I know. I was watching home videos this week and my dad was filming us playing in the snow when we were young kids. It was so awesome hearing his voice and his laugh commenting in the background. He loved us then, and I know he loves us now. I couldn't ask for a better dad. He taught me so many things growing up. My dad is so full of wisdom. I don't think he credits himself enough. I bet he thinks he can't say too much that can make a difference. But I know that not only does my dad teach me through words, but also through actions. My dad lives what he knows and is such a great example to me. I'm so happy that my dad was involved in my life. I love him so much!

Six Months Down, Eternity to Go!

I can't believe Travis and I have been married 6 months (as of yesterday). Life is soooo wonderful! It feels like we've been married forever. We have gone through a lot already in just 6 months! We've moved twice, worked an early morning job together, found new jobs this summer, received two callings together in two different wards, and had so many adventures! I'm so blessed to be married to someone that truly loves everything about me. He understands me more than I understand myself. haha. I love him so much.
 
I remember 6 months ago, I was soo stinkin nervous to get married. The morning of our wedding, I knew I was supposed to marry him, it just hit me how huge marriage was. I was almost freaking out because marriage is the biggest decision ever!! And I was about to make the biggest decision ever actually happen. But since Travis and I made that decision together, it's been the easiest decision to live with. We definitely have our struggles. We're two different people from two different backgrounds. But when it comes down to it, we're madly in love and we won't let anything come between us. We're definitely not perfect people, but we're perfect for each other.

P90X Update

We've been doing P90X for about 2 weeks now. It's crazy! It's definitely a love-hate relationship. I can feel myself getting stronger and in better shape, but it kills! Travis has already lost over 10 pounds. He's mostly loss all the extra little tummy fat he gained from having a wife that feeds him well. haha. Now he's just getting more toned. And it's only been 2 weeks. It's crazy! I've only lost 3 pounds tops. I lose weight a lot slower than Travis. It's pretty frustrating. But I do notice my body getting tighter. So I'm really excited to see the outcome of this program.

I'm sure you don't care to know this, but I'm going to share anyways. Travis is a maniac sweater! We both worked the same intensity, but definitely didn't get the same outcome.


 P90X is difficult, but so worth it. I enjoy the feeling that comes after I complete a hard workout. It's good stuff.

A Day of Memories

I know this is late, but I just wanted to share what we did on Memorial Day. I had the day off.... but Travis didn't! He had to drive to West Yellowstone and back twice. So I went with him! He always comes home talking about the animals he sees driving up there. I was pretty excited to see some buffaloes, moose, and bears. Driving up, I was amazed to see the change from the desert scenery to the beautiful forest. So many trees!

We saw a couple deer at the beginning of the day. I didn't have my camera out, so I quickly pulled my camera out and got ready to capture any more animals. Too bad we didn't see any more the entire day! I love animals so much! So I was bummed. I'll just have to go again with him some other time.

The trip up there only takes an hour and a half. We left at 6:30 and got there around 8. We were hungry, so we went to McDonalds. I thought it was such a cute McDonalds. It fit right into the cute little town.

It was a fun trip. We did it twice. We decided that we want to spend a weekend there sometime, when we have money. haha. And when it's warmer! It was pretty cold. But it's a beautiful place.

After coming back to Rexburg from our first trip up there, we had three hours until we had to leave for the second trip. We decided to go see what movies were playing. We pulled up to the movie theater and Kung Fu Panda was starting right then! We rushed in and went to see it. It was a pretty funny movie. We had to see it in 3D because that's the only time we could make it to. Travis and I both hate 3D movies. It's hard wearing the 3D glasses on top my regular glasses. And these glasses were so weird!
But it was a good movie. We had such a fun day together. Even though most of it was driving, we still had a good time. It definitely was a day full of memories.

The Escapee

Sometimes I wish I was carrying my camera around all the time. Some moments just can't be recreated. Today Travis and I went grocery shopping. While we were wheeling our cart to the car, this lady walking by us shouted, "Oh no! Your watermelon is rolling in front of you, trying to get away!" It took a second or two for that announcement to register in mine and Travis's head. Then Travis went to look at the front of the cart and our watermelon had rolled off the bottom of our cart and was rolling in front of us. I hope this sounds funny to you, because watching Travis chase after our watermelon was probably the funniest thing that has happened in a while. haha
