Today I woke up with a desire to be domestic. I wanted to ake bread...No, the world's not at an end but I have been married for a year now, I should be more domestic right? Anyway it actually turned out really well.

While I was waiting for the bread to rise I decided to make some salsa. It's pretty good.


So finally our living room is clean enough to take pictures of. I think it turned out quit nicely. We got the couch from DI and I cleaned it with a carpet cleaner, it look almost new. I also made some new cushions for it, looks pretty good, if I do say so myself. I'll post some pictures of the bedrooms soon.

Update's on our lives

I know, I'm like the worst blogger EVER! But I have repented and I promise to try to be better at updating!

In the way of news, well, there isn't much. Steve went Spring term and took two really hard Japanese translating classes and did great in both of them, I'm so proud of him! He is so smart, I wouldn't of even known where to start with that. He's now going Summer term and taking some easier classes, well I don't think so but he does. He's taking Beginning Mandarin (as in Chinese) and Pearl of Great Price. He is actually enjoying both of them a lot. He's still faithfully getting up at 3 AM to work at the BYU bookstore doing custodial but I hope that when I get back on my feet and am working again he can find a better job in which he doesn't have to get up quit so early.

Which brings us to me. Nothing much has changed. I still have a torn tendon in my right ankle and the insurance company is still being difficult. Hopefully, however, I can get surgery in the next month or so to fix the tear and I can be back to my normal bright, shiny self by fall (keep your fingers crossed that the insurance company cooperates!). I'm trying to keep myself busy by doing crafts but boy are craft materials expensive!

Other then that we celebrated our one year wedding anniversary on the 21st, yay!

California Dreaming

We went to San Diego last weekend for my little brother, Cam's birthday (He turned 12!!). We some great fun. My parents bought this huge raft that you can see holds two women, one 8 year old girl and a nervous 1 and 1/2 year old.
