One of life's lessons

If you are in the middle of something and you don't want to answer you phone, don't try to turn the phone on silent with your toe.  Chances are you will hit the answer button and the person on the other end will hear everything you are doing and saying without you even knowing.  Trust me, this can be very embarrassing.

What a difference a year makes

A year ago (in October) Lincoln and I had just started dating.  We had no idea it would end up getting married!  We took the top picture after carving pumpkins last year.  Notice my dark hair and horrible yard.  Who would of thought we would  be doing the same thing a year later, but married.  It was Lincoln's idea to wear the same clothes,  I didn't match perfectly from year to year, but you get the idea.   
We were still in the beginning stage of our relationship in the above picture.  It was very easy to date Lincoln and everything went so smooth, but I am still human and I couldn't help but be a little weird and insecure at the beginning stages of our dating.  

After a year of being together as a couple and being married for over four months, you can see the weirdness has slowly gone away.  It is very easy to be with Lincoln, he is great.  I wonder if we will be doing the same thing next year... of course we will, and I am sure Lincoln will wear the same thing then too.  Here's to many more years!!   :)

Pumpkin Carving/Couples FHE: Take One

Since Lincoln and I got married we have tried really hard to stay social. It seems to be a curse for newlyweds to all of a sudden have no friends and a blank social calendar. That just won't work for me. Lincoln and I have decided to take action and work on keeping up with our friends. Last month a small group of us went to the dollar movies on a monday night. We joked about it being our Family Home Evening group. The joke soon seemed less and less like a joke and more like a great idea. I didn't want a great idea to pass by, so a few weeks ago Lincoln and I had some people over for dinner and carve pumpkins. It seemed like the right thing to do since it was October and Lincoln and I did the same thing a year before, only we were just dating then. It turned out to be a great time and hopefully a small step to getting us back on track with a regular social calendar. I am still working on the picture thing, so bare with me....
