I made a blog!

Ok, so I have been putting this blog off for a while, but after an inspirational conversation with my Grandma Robison, I decided I would start documenting our lives. I have been avoiding a blog simply because I don't think that our lives are very exciting right now! But one day it will be nice to be able to look back and remember some of the funny random things that have happened to us as poor college students.

So i'll give a short recap of our lives right now!

Justin and I got married in August of 09 in Los Angeles! It was so much fun and we have been LOVING married life ever since! Its so fun to be with my best friend all the time, and always have someone who is there to support and love me no matter what grade I get on a physics test, or how loud and off key I sing along with the radio in the car!

Here is a picture of us at the LA temple after we got married!

For our honeymoon we went to Cancun Mexico! It was so much fun and Mexico was beautiful!

After our honeymoon we headed back up to provo to move in to our apartment in Wymount, and start another semester at BYU!

Justin is in the Neuroscience major at BYU and is loving all his smart classes! He's really busy right now with med-school stuff like preparation for the MCAT, which he will be taking in May, volunteering at the hospital, and shadowing a physician who works with kids with ADHD. He is loving all of this, but it keeps him really busy! I am constantly amazed at how well he is able to keep up with it all, and get good grades, and still find time to spend with me!
Justin is also serving as the family history teacher, and the "stairwell captain" for our ward. What is a "stairwell captain" you might ask? Well, he is in charge of the 4 apartments that share our stairwell with us, in case of an emergency like a tornado, forest fire, nuclear attack, meteor shower, or alien invasion, justin is the man responsible for saving our stairwell and making sure we are all safe. Needless to say this is probably the coolest calling anyone could ever have, and he loves his stairwell captain title.

Here is Justin's domain, he is the best captain ever! :)

As for me, I am going into Biology Education, so hopefully one day when I graduate I will be able to teach middle school biology. I am enjoying my classes and for the first time I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I will have one more semester of classes after this semester and then I'll be student teaching this time next year which is really scary to think about!! Besides school, I am working part time at Outdoors Unlimited, an outdoor sporting store on BYU campus. This is such a fun job, and we are enjoying the free rentals that come with the job as well! This summer besides working at OU I'll also be river guiding on the Green River for a few weekends, and working at a local ropes course in Provo!

So anyways, although our lives aren't super exciting right now, we are having so much fun just living life and living it together!
I hope that all who read enjoy our little blog! And please don't judge it too harshly! I have never written a blog before, and i'm sure it'll get better as I go along!
