Viva the Alamo

Yeay! Tyson and Ashley are coming for a visit! They called us a couple days ago with some great news- they scored a couple buddy passes and are coming this weekend all the way from Utah! We're gonna have so much fun- Alamo, here we come! lol I thought the above picture was appropriate. There are also some other great things that have come out of Texas, for those of you who dont know... Rattlesnakes, Bluebonnets, the Chainsaw Massacre, Mexican food, Walker the TEXAS Ranger aka: Chuck Norris, and of course, the Longhorn. Now you know why Texans are so prideful ;)
I did get a new calling in our ward- I am the 7 year old's primary teacher! I'm pretty excited about that, I love that age. I taught for the first time last week and I now know I'm going to have to be a little bit more stern. They seem like a good class though.
I'll post some pictures of our up coming week!

Back to life

It was so much fun having the Shumways come visit. There was lots of driving, eating, and more driving. I hope they had a good time! BYU didnt do so good, so that was a downer, but UT made up for that.

Steve and I are having no fun getting back to real life. My work has been pretty slow with the economy going the way it is- Massages are the first thing to go when people start pinching pennies. I'm starting to look at other options, just until things start to pick up again. Steve's work thankfully is not affected- people will always be getting sick and need drugs!

I cant believe November is just around the corner, didnt we just have new years?!? Time goes by too fast- Steve and I have been married for 2 & 1/2 years already! I still feel like I'm 18 sometimes, but then my body has friendly ways of reminding me that thats not the case. Steve came home from his church meetings on Sunday, and told me that he had mentioned to the EQ president "It feels like we're just pretending to be adults with all this responsability, like someone older and more qualified will step in at any minute and take over." haha Well, I have a feeling that this thought will be running through our minds plenty of times over the next few years of 'adulthood'. Its really no fun paying a mortgage, being in debt, planning for retirement, ect. It does feel at times that I'm just playing house. I hope I grow up soon!! :)

Getting ready for the Fam!

Steve's family is coming into town tomorrow, and we're so excited! I hope all 5 of them are ready to share our 2 bedroom condo for the weekend! haha The boys are all going to some football games (BYU in Dallas & UT in Austin) that they are super excited about, and us gals are gonna hit the shopping and movie theatres!

Steve and I bought our first place in July in North Austin, and we just love it! Its a lot of stress being a home owner, but its super rewarding. All those months living with the parents finally paid off! :)

Steve was just called to be the 2nd counselor in the Elders Quorum! We're excited about that, he's a bit nervous because he has never had a calling quite like this one, but I know he'll do great. We are also ward missionaries which is just amazing. Its so great meeting with investigators and watching their testimonies grow. We love our ward!
