So Eliza tagged me with this Husband thing ha ha, I have never done this before and I hope Ryan doesn't get mad at any of my answers:)

Another Tag.... The Husband

1. Where did you meet your husband? Well I dont know if we actually met somewhere, but I went on a date with Jesse (Ryan's cousin) first and we found out that we were in the same ward and the next Sunday Ryan saw me at church and asked Jesse if he knew who I was and Ryan ended up asking me on a date that week. So I didn't meet him until he picked me up for our first date:)
2. How long did you date before you married? We dated for about a year and 5 months. There was a summer break in there where we didn't really date, but just kinda talked

4. What does he do that surprises you? He takes seriously the longest showers EVER! Way longer than any girl I know

Random Stuff!

OK Ryan is supposed to blog about the auction and our honeymoon for real this time... we will see if it happens:) So it was Ryan's 27th birthday on Monday!! Holy smokes that's a lot of years to be alive! I guess not really, but it was fun! He has had about four different small birthday things over the last couple days. He opened presents in the morning, the afternoon, at dinner that night, then Jason brought over the yummiest ice cream cake for him, and some the next day. Seriously no one is going to be able to think of things to get him for Christmas. Well at least a fun big thing! With all the birthday treats and stuff I swear we eat one thing and then another one comes right before the other one is finished. Of course I eat 90% of them... Special. Anyway, our first couple months being married has been so much fun and I love it so much. Ryan is the BEST and I hope he had the best birthday ever! Love you Ry!!

My sister Shanni and her friend Clara also just got here today! It is so fun. We have tons of fun things planned for the few days that they are here. They are so cute, they flew here with just them two to come see us and Clara's sister Hannah. Mom, there will be pics up of everything everyday:)

So one thing I am really sad about is the cold starting to come... I had to break out all my sweatshirts and long sleeve shirts. YUCK. The winters seriously last forever here!! Ha we haven't written about anything in so long, but one funny thing that Ryan and I went to a few weeks ago was the national sheep dog championships! Ha ha so crazy/amazing. We were just driving to look at some homes in Midway and we were curious to see what it was. Come to find out it was a HUGE deal. People from all over the world were there and it was packed. It was amazing to see a dog run all the way up the whole mountain and bring like 18 sheep around the course on the mountain. I never knew it was such a big deal for people. It was definitely interesting!

Oh and we just got called to be the 14/15 year old Sunday school teachers in our ward! We are both really excited! Hopefully it will be a fun class. We meet in a ward building that was built in 1898!! So so old. I love it.

Here are a few random pics of all the stuff goin on...
