Last Sunday while I was ironing my skirt in a hurry (we are always late for church), I kept telling Adam to hurry up and get dressed. A minute later he was dressed in black church pants, and a black button down shirt with a few buttons undone and the collar popped. He came down the hall and said, "Do I look like Edward Cullen?" in his most seductive voice. I started laughing so hard! He rushed down the hall and said, "Wait, I need to do my hair!" Adam's hair is starting to get really long, and I was laughing even harder when he came back down the hall with something close to Edward's hair. He was making such a serious face and acting weird like Edward does. I had to take a picture, just so I could blog about how funny Adam can be.

I just wanted everyone to know that I took my first Anatomy Lab test today, and I got a B+. I took Anatomy a few semesters ago, but I dropped out because I was terrified and not doing that great, and I almost changed my major because of it! This 6:00 a.m. lab thing is actually working out!

On August 23 Adam and I had to go back to school. Last summer was the first summer I didn't go to school since I graduated from High School, and it was amazing. I loved not going to school and not having to worry about tests or homework when I should be out soaking up the sun. It was so hard to start going back to school, but the night before I started getting those back to school butterflies, and I was excited again. I'm taking Anatomy and Anatomy Lab( my lab is at 6 a.m, twice a week, I hope I can survive getting up at 4 a.m. the rest of the semester.) I really love Anatomy though, it's so interesting and something that I will actually use in my career. I'm also taking a History class, with my mom! I hate History, it's probably the most boring subject ever. If I could join the Chess Club instead of taking History I would, maybe. I never paid attention to History in High school, and sadly I don't know anything about it. I'm just glad that my mom is there to entertain me, and make sure I show up for class. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't ever go to class. It's been really fun to spend some time with my mom, even though most of the time we have to listen to the teacher. Anyways I'm just excited beacuse I'm kinda close to having my Associates Degree, finally. Adam is taking a math class, and his teacher tutored me in Math 1050, and his dad works with my mom. He is an awesome teacher and I'm glad Adam got into his class. Adam took his first math test tonight, he thinks he got an A. I'm really proud of him, I hope he did. He's also taking English 990. He says he isn't very good at English, so I'm trying to help him out as much as I can. He got an A on his first paragragh, thanks to me for staying up all night telling him what to write. I took English 990, along time ago, but we both have the same teacher. I know he will learn a lot in her class. School is going good so far, we are just counting down the days until Christmas break.
The Washington County Fair comes to town every year in August. Last year Adam and I were driving to my house in La Verkin, and I spotted the lights from the fair. We decided to make a quick stop and ride the Ferris Wheel. This year, we decided to go back. I made Adam pay the 4 dollars so that we could go inside the petting zoo. We saw a horse, a bull, bunnies, and I held a snake.
Adam made me ride the Zipper, even though I told him over and over that I hate that ride. I never get sick on rides, expect this one. After a while I don't know if I'm upside or not, and I almost slam into the cage everytime, I was pretty mad when we got off.
I don't have any pictures of me and Krista, but we have had many swimmin' adventures this year. It seemed like whenever Krista and I had the same day off we were at the pool, which was great! We go swimming together a lot every summer, it's our own summer tradition.
Two weeks after we got home from our Honeymoon we headed up North to go to Lagoon, and Adam's grandparents celebrated their 50th Anniversary. We left Friday morning at 6 a.m. I slept the whole time on the way up. Last time I was at Lagoon I was a senior in High School, and I thought Lagoon was so boring and dirty.
This time was much more fun. I don't know if it was cleaner then last time, or if the rides were more fun. My favorite ride was Rattle Snake Rapids. I love the water rides and someshow we both got soaked.
The next day we got up and got ready for Adam's Grandma and Grandpa's 50th Anniversary party. We went over to Homestead, in Heber I think, and took pictures on the grass of the whole family. It was so beautiful there, everything was green, and there was flowers everywhere.
After taking pictures, we went back to the house we were staying at and the party started. Adam's family made his Grandparents a quilt with the whole families pictures on it.

For our Honeymoon we decided to go to Lake Tahoe. Neither of us had ever been there, so we decided it was the best place for us to go together. It was a long 9 hour drive there, but we laughed, sang and talked alot. Most of the drive was desert, and there were some really long roads.
We missed the turn onto the Extraterrestrial Highway and ended up at this dead end. I was kinda scared.
This lovely motel was in Tonopah, Nevada. They are for real about this place.
This lake was a really pretty, and a nice change from the desert scenery.
Poor Adam drove the whole 9 hours!
When we got there, this was waiting for us in our room. I think it was the best chocolate I've ever tasted in my whole life
The view from our room
This creek was by the parking lot, I loved this place.
Our hotel was about 5 minutes from the lake
I loved Lake Tahoe, it was so pretty and green!
The view from the pool
Having dessert at Rosie's Cafe, our view across the street was the lake. It was so pretty!
Shopping in Reno
We ate at a yum pizza place before heading back to St. George. Our honeymoon was a lot of fun. Everyday was perfect weather, it never got over 70 degrees. We went to Carson City to explore and buy groceries so that we could make dinner in our penthouse suite. It was a much needed vacation from all the planning. On our way home we saw some Aliens. I told Adam the story about when I was little and our family was on vacation, my sister would tell me these power lines were Aliens, I started freaking out and my mom told Brin that she better find a way to make me not be afraid. My sister then told me that these Aliens played Barbies. Everything was okay after that. Adam and I had been in the car for so long, that we started acting really silly. It was fun just laughing together, and being together, just the two of us.
