Things I Like, Things I Don't

Things I've Disliked lately:

Having WAY too much homework, and having no desire to do it

Clay being at work til 8:00pm

The rainy, cold weather here in Logan while my family heads to Hawaii

The Logan DMV, and everyone that works there

Things I've Liked Lately:

That my weekends start on Thursday

Staying in Bed until Noon today

Tasty Paninis

Thinking about this day...

Hanging out with my girls

Watching WAY too much Scrubs (thank you netflix)

Wearing these freaking awesome shoes around campus yesterday...

and getting the best looks EVER!
(These are the shoes I wore to my reception btw)

Getting to see my fam tonight

Being married for 3 weeks. Hazzah!

Hope you all are having a lovely weekend!

Pretty Things for Wednesday

So, I'm just sitting here, not listening in my history of photography class

But feeling very inspired all the same

Take a look at these little pretties I found by one of my favorite photographers:
Richard Avedon

I think this model deserves a gold star for this pose. She totally ate it right after this shot.
O how I wish I had a big snake... you never know when you might need them

and maybe some elephants

All of these lil gems, plus what I have planned for dinner tonight...
Grilled Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Paninis
You're welcome husband
Recipe found on one of my favorite blogs... The Pioneer Woman

Will be just enough to get me to Saturday,

And Clay and I's cross Utah extravaganza to...

and Provo for Round 2 of the Festival of Colors!

Yay Wednesdays!

I'll let you all know how the Paninis turn out

You're welcome

Mini-Moon and Sunday Walks

Hey World!

I'm back from my wedding hiatus!

And I have a few stories to share!

But O so fun :)

I'm gonna save my wedding day recap for when I get a few more pictures back.
Something that I cannot WAIT for! :)

But just so you all know, it was a perfect day :)
I really can't thank everyone enough for coming and for all the work that was put into it
Especially my mom
She's pretty dang amazing if you didn't already know it :)

But like I said, no pictures, no story so we'll get ahead a little bit and I'll tell you about Clay and I's mini honeymoon to SLC! (Mini-moon phrase taken without permission from the Experiment in Poverty blog. I thought it was cute. And appropriate :)

It was so great to get away for a couple days, just the 2 of us, and to go out and do fun, nerdy things together and kind of get into the swing of getting married.

We did lots of fun things like...

Going to a Filipino Restaurant!

The Food was AWESOME
But I have to say my favorite part was Clay getting SO excited to talk to the staff there.
I love how much he loves the Filipino culture. And the people
Gotta love Sinigang :)
Thank heavens Filipino food is so tasty :)

We also did stuff for me, like checking out the aquarium...
For how much space they had there, I thought it was a pretty nice aquarium!
They even had Clay's new favorite animal..
Photos taken on Clay's Ipod.
I loved the caimans
Totally worth the trip and the near death experiences on the freeway during rush hour traffic :)

We also headed over to the Gateway so Clay could see his first IMAX movie

In 3D no less!

And of course, because I love animals too much, we went to the zoo...
Where Clay and I decided we'd like a pet giraffe
This was probably my favorite pic from the ENTIRE trip.
Did I marry a version of my dad? Perhaps...

Clay loved the monkeys.

Monkey's creep me out.

And we chased around some peacocks for kicks and giggles.
We also pretended to be rich for an evening and went to Ruth's Chris for steak that was WAY too expensive.
We felt very out of place
So we hit up P.F. Chang's for dessert.

Overall, it was a grand time!
Another big thanks to my dad for finding, and paying for our awesome hotel. We could walk to almost anywhere we wanted to go!

One more exciting bit of news...
It was warm enough to go on a walk on Sunday!

So Clay and I went and did a little photo safari!

We found a tree house in an abandoned lot near our apartment...
And I taught Clay how to use the manuel settings on my D70!
Check out his awesome photography skills...
Unfortunately... the weather didn't hold out
And today, it looks something like this...
Looks like a day for curling up with one of our new quilts and watching a movie!

Clay has dubbed this month "Trilogy month" so it works perfectly with our schedule!
Tonight we're finishing up Indiana Jones

PS Am I the only one that feels like I did something incredibly epic by just watching Lord of the Rings?
Yah, maybe that's just me... :)
Happy Wednesday Everyone!
And of course, more adventures to come!
