Story time!!!!

Okay so 2 weekends ago my older brother Carter's girlfriend came down for my birthday and we all had a fabulous time. We went hiking with the Powells on the 16th and then we all went hot tubbin. Then sunday Ben taught in church and when we got home from church we hung out with Steph (carter's girlfriend) and Carter for a little while. Then she left and we were all talking and watching Extreme Home Makeover.. which always makes me cry.... anyways! We decided we really liked Stephanie and Carter was like yeahhhhhhh me too. THEN the following tuesday he told us he was thinking about marrying her.. and we were like cool.. maybe they'd get engaged in the summer... totally not thinking it was going to happen the next day!!! So.. carter ben and i had plans to live in this darling house, but since they were talking marriage we decided we couldn't live there because Ben and I can't afford that much rent a month.. So now its thursday and ben and I are like we have to find a place today because we thought at the time we had to get out of the apt. we're in now by the 29th so we'd only have a week to find a place and move to it. Anyways we found a bran new, vaulted ceiling 2 bed/2 bath, granite counter tops, stainless steel applainces, new carpet, never ever ever been lived in condo for $600 a month!!!! OH how this economy is great for poor people lol...We talked our landlord into letting us stay here so we didn't have to rush the new landlords into putting carpet in and letting us move in, in 5 days.. oh yeah sorry they don't have carpet right now they put it in when the tenants pay a deposit. SO on JUNE 27-28 we get to move in! Which is perfect cuz it gives us time to enjoy San Fran and get summer games over and then move so i'm freakin excited!! OHHHH And Carter is getting Married August 14th.. We think.. nothing is completely offical yet because the ring is getting re-sized.. I'm so excited tho.. She's darling!!! Okay I'm done blogging!!!!

Easter Pictures, Institute Gradute and Seminary Student Teacher!

First of all I'm sorry I'm such a slacker and updating our blog. This is what has been going on!
Easter time!!!
   First of all we went to Fillmore and saw my family and had a great time with them and then we went to Richfield and had a Jesus Dinner.. It was cool. We ate foods that Jesus would have eaten :) THEN....

 Ben graduates from Institute :) He got an Advance Certificate.. so its like he has his masters for institute.. cool huh! Anyways.. So we go to his graduation, and for those of you that know Ben he HATES big ceremonies. So we get there and its like 7:00 and he leaves to go in the room with the gradutes and I'm just chillin in the Chapel. Then the grads walk in and by now its like 7:18 ish. And I text him and I'm like sit by me not by the gradutes! Because I'm a loser and hate sitting
 alone. But much to my suprise my reply to that text was.. Let's Jet.. I'm thinking.. what? Your really going to leave right before it starts.. and I text back saying.. well whatever you want to do but I think you should just come sit by me. AND THEN the unthinkable happens.. Ben stands up with another kid and I'm thinking ok they are just going to talk to someone.... oh no.. he walked into the room where his certificate was and I get a text saying.. Meet Ye' in the Foyer. And i was like oh... only my Ben.. ... So we did go to his graduation! But.. missed the talks and all the graduation stuff.. :) 

On to my next new exciting news.. Ben found out Tuesday he gets to teach 2 high school classes next school year. He is so excited and I am so happy for him! He'll be such an amazing teacher. I hope he gets picked at the end of this next year :)

Thats about all the news for us.. Its Birthday month for both of us.. mine is on the 15th and his is on the 25th. We're going to party!!!! Oh and we're going to San Francisco on May 29th with Ben's family.. That trip should be awesome, but I'll blog about it then :)
