Fun Fonts!

I'm so excited about this! My neighbor, Chelsie, introduced me to this website! You can get free fonts! I just downloaded 70 of them. They are great for scrapbooking or any crafts! The website is below but you just want to make sure you extract the files and copy them into the font section of your control panel. Enjoy!

Hot Date or Not....

Today Scott had to work all day and I spent 8 hours on campus either in class or studying at the library... I know that's a shocker for all of you that know me, especially on a Friday! But after the long day we decided to go out on a date to get some r&r. little did we know that it'd be the most expensive date we've ever gone on....lets look at the math here.

Cafe Rio for two = $16
Movie tickets at the dollar theater for two = $3.75
Paying to get our car out of the towing lot that is across town = $more than I'm willing to tell$
Total: a lot of money!

Waiting in line at the towing place at 11pm on a dark scary street watching people in front of us threaten the tow man that they were going to drive their car through the fence because they already had a record and didn't care = I don't know if its priceless or not but it was sure scary!

Thank goodness Corbin was there to drive us around and help us get our car back. I did park illegally so I have no excuse but everyone else was doing it! AND it was a unloading and loading zone...I really don't think ShopKo was going to start unloading and loading up their stuff that late at night! Can't I have a little slap on the wrist for first offense!? I promise I won't ever do it again!! watching that much money go towards...learning a lesson? really hard to swallow!

This Or That

The last few months I've been begging Scott to get a puppy. I've always had a dog and I just miss having pets in our home...after nagging him forever it feels like, he informed me that we can either have a dog or a

I chose the baby! and its coming JULY 17th!!!!!!


Our camera has been out of commission and i feel bad that i don't have any pictures with our update. This last semester was very stressful and overwhelming but we pulled through. Scott was working full time and going to school full time. I had 20 credits and working more than i desired. it definitely kept us on our toes and the holidays we welcomed with both hands opened!

Thanksgiving we spend with my family our in North Carolina with the traditional shooting, go carting, and lots of fun. We headed up to Washington D.C. and gave Scott a tour of my hometown and saw our good friends the Welti's.

Christmas we stayed up in Salt Lake and enjoyed a white Christmas with Scott's family. Our new niece made it just in time to celebrate Christmas with us, which everyone adored and was so excited!

We are now trying to plow through all this snow and our last semester!
