things i love - august

  • Owl City's new album, The Midsummer Station. Although I'm a little disappointed that it's not his typical electronic pun-ny music and a little too redundant and pop-ish, I still think it's good (and clean) music and well done.
  • My stress management class. My professor is a doctor, like full on MD status, and he's seriously one of my top three favorite professors at ASU. Seriously, I absolutely love his class. More to come on that later, I'm sure.
  • Couple friends. We are love spending time and doing things with our friends that are married (or dating). It is seriously so much fun!
  • The new shoe store. I've mentioned the $10 shoes store before. It was in this super-small-super-crowded-hole-in-the-wall-ghetto-as-all-get-out-po-dunk of a place. Well, folks, this month they moved to a much bigger space, and let me tell you...It is marvelous. Glorious. Fantastic. If you go, you must take me with you.
  • Going to bed early. There have been a few nights recently when I have gone to bed at 8:30 and been completely conked out by 9:00. Wearing myself out I guess.
  • The bookshelf in our front room. It's finally decorated, complete with old books, ceramic birds and owls, quote blocks, and photos. Oh, and 12 Books of Mormon. #gottalovemymissionaryofahusband
  • My new planner. There is nothing like a fresh planner. I look forward to that purchase every year, I kid you not.
  • Coupons. Dude. My mom, aka Coupon Queen, rocks. She shares her coupons with us and is teaching us the ins and outs of saving more than you spend. Awesome!
  • The 'you & me' sign that our brother-in-law, Kirk, made us. I pinned the idea a while back, and he made my dreams come true! The thing looks exactly how it does in the pin! He and MRudd are planning on turning it into a headboard. So excited!
  • Study/homework sessions with Celeste. School is back in full swing, something I don't really love. Last year baby.
  • Snickers ice cream bars. Di-vine.
  • The sky. Arizona sunsets are probably some of the most beautiful things ever.
  • Target. Can't get enough of this place. In fact, I think we're going tonight.
  • BOGO coupons for Rumbi's. If you haven't been to this place, you seriously need to check it out. Yum.
  •  Not being sick. I caught the annual summer cold and it lasted me a whole two weeks. Even though it wasn't fun being sick, I was glad I got it before school started as opposed to after.
  • Going to the temple. So much to remember, so much to learn.
  • Wedding pictures. Lots of those to come in the hopefully near future. Ya'll are about to be bombarded.
  • Financial aid. Perks of being newlyweds and serving a mission, aka blessings for paying tithing.
