A Little Strange...

Chance and I loved our apartment from the beginning simply because it was our own space; however, we have definitely noticed a few flaws. The first morning of living in our apartment I went to go plug my blow dryer in and realized that there was no outlet in the bathroom. I thought I was going crazy, how could there be no outlet in a bathroom? I looked and looked, but still couldn't find one. Anyways, I ended up setting up an area in our bedroom where I could do my hair, so everything is fine. A few weeks ago I was brushing my teeth, and I randomly looked up at our light fixture in our bathroom. I couldn't believe what I saw, there was an outlet along the rim of the light! Unbelievable, who would think to put the only outlet in a bathroom way up by the ceiling? Haha, Chance and I had a good laugh about that one. The outlet works fine, but I never use it because I'm scared its going to blow up or something. I have a feeling that our apartment isn't quite up to current building codes!

Football Games

We have loved going to the football games this season, 2 more games left! This is usually how the game goes for us... Chance explains what is going on to me and then I yell like crazy and then Chance laughs at me. Needless to say we have lots of fun.

The View is Different From the Top

So over conference weekend we watched Tradition, Spirit, Honor, which is a BYU footbal movie that talks about Bronco and his coaching style. During football training, one of the things Bronco had the team do was run to the top of the Y. Bronco had his team do this so that they could see that the view is different from the top (obviously they are still trying to figure this out). Anyways, watching this movie inspired Chance and me to hike the Y a few weekends ago. It was tougher than we remembered, but it was great to be outside and get a little exercise.

The view really is different from the top!


Conference weekend was so fun last month, not only because we were able to hear from President Monson, the apostles, and other leaders of the church, but also because my parents and little sister were able to come up and visit. It was a tight squeeze in our little apartment, but it was so great having them here with us. We were able to attend Saturday afternoon session and then we watched Sunday session here at home. We made yummy cinnamon rolls of course, played games, watched movies, and took some good walks around our neighborhood.

We ate at Brick Oven Monday night, free root beer after five!

We Love Fall

Despite our busy schedules, Chance and I have made an effort to enjoy the great season of fall here in Provo. A few weeks ago we drove up to bridal veil falls and had a yummy picnic lunch. It felt so good to sit on the grass and take in the beautiful surroundings. God has created such an amazing world for us and often times we don't take the time to appreciate all of His creations.
