Chicago

So, time for a new post. For Jonathan's birthday we went to Chicago to see the Symphony play the Mahler 6 Symphony. Since Mahler is Jonathan's favorite composer and the Chicago Symphony one of his favorite orchestras, it was perfect. So Friday we afternoon we drove out, it took about 4 hours, parked at a parking garage that was way too expensive, and then walked around Chicago. What a fun City! We walked around downtown, then walked around Lake Michigan and walked over to the Navy Pier for
dinner. We then took a cab back to the Orchestra hall, and listened to the pre-concert lecture. The concert was amazing and our seats were right above and behind the trombones, so Jonathan got a good view. It was really exciting. Here are some pictures. There is one of Lake Michigan, with all the boats and then a picture of orchestra hall.

So, Jonathan and I were a little slap happy and childish the other day and made a fort of blankets on our bed. We started by running and jumping on the bed before we discovered doing summersaults on top of the bed and falling on the other side onto a bunch of couch cushions. Anywho...here are some blurry unattractive pictures of our little extravaganza.

Here is the fort a.k.a a huge pile of blankets and pillows



Here I am, about ready to go...



On my way...



Blurry, but there I am sitting on the floor after flinging myself across the bed....Awesome.




So that is some fun that we have been up to lately...crazy, but we have decided that we aren't quite ready to grow up!

Rough Video

So, not much new going on. However, Jonathan found this video, and we were laughing hysterically for about an hour, it seemed like, well maybe not... Enjoy!!

D.C.

So I recently took a trip and visited my sister in our wonderful Nation's capital. Jonathan and I found this really great deal on a plane ticket, so he was kind enough to let me go for a week. I really can't believe how much my nephews have grown! Pretty crazy. We had a good time and it was really fun to hang out. While there though I did get to see some fun stuff...

Zara!! Coolest store ever. I found Jonathan a great tie here.



I also got to watch Spencer play soccer...so fun!




We went to the National Zoo and I got to see the Pandas!!! There were the Giant Pandas and the Red Pandas. So cute! I really wanted to take one home with me.






While driving downtown, Kim made me take a picture of this license plate. We thought it was pretty funny.



And then here are just some cute pictures of the boys.

Grant in the tub with a rock...



Grant just being cute...



Max splashing himself in the fountain by the White House.



I know this is random, but this duck was crazy. They were bobbing for something. Anyway, I thought it was cool.



Anyway, those were some of the highlights of my trip, not to mention getting Kim and Chris hooked on Heroes and Chocolate Rain, pedicures, awesome brownies, and dying Kim's hair. I just wish that getting back was as fun and easy as being there, but I think we will save that story for another post.

Yet another blog in the airport. I am on my way back to Iowa and am stuck in Chicago. Not completely stuck though, just held hostage for 5 hours. My flight was cancelled and the next available flight isn't until 9:30. Boo. I was supposed to be flying into Quad Cities at 3:30... now I fly in at 10:15. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb. They never even said why the flight was cancelled. All I have to say is that I am tired of airports having Coke and no Pepsi, and McDonalds and no Burger King. That would at least make things a little less crappy. Oh Well. Hopefully my flight is on time and I can finally get home. Once again, boo for airports today.

So I have some time to kill, be it that it is 5:30 am and I am waiting for my 6:00 am flight to leave. So early...I am trying to remember why I though that it was a good idea to leave this early. Oh well. Poor Jonathan was up until almost 1 am working on his crazy hard homework, so he barely got any sleep last night. Sad. All is well though. I get to visit Kim and stay there for a week. I'm way excited. I have never been to D.C. Should be an adventure. Let you know how it goes!!

I don't know how anyone else feels, but I think that I am done with summer. It is just too hot and muggy. I am ready for winter, or at least fall. Not to mention that there is a new Sonic across the street from us that isn't open for about another month so it sits there and taunts me with with thoughts of a wonderful ice cold cherry limeaide and I can't have one. Why does it have to open when the heat isn't going to be so bad? Not cool. I could really go for a one... Also, the sign out front says that they are hiring 102 people. Why in the world would a sonic need to hire 102 people? I know that it is open for 24 hours, but still... they don't even have a place to eat inside, just a drive though window and carhops. Weird. Anywho, life goes on and hopefully I will be able to enjoy a nice cherry limeaide in the fall.

I'm bored.

So when I had quit my jobs and started to re-evaluate my life and my goals and I decided to learn one thing new every month. Something artsy and crafty. Did you know that getting started on artsy crafty stuff is expensive??? I wanted to learn how to knit but all of the good instructions dvds and books were expensive. Then I decided that I wanted to leanr how to bead necklaces. To make them look cool, also expensive. I also want to sew stuff and improve my sewing ability, but I have no sewing machine, and they are expensive. Granted most of this stuff really wouldn't be very expensive if I was making money. Hopefully something will work out soon. Anyone know any cool cheap craft projects???

Oh Iowa...

Well, I think that it is long overdue for a blog. Jonathan and I got all moved to Iowa. It is crazy to think that I live in Iowa. Weird Good though, we really like it. People here are so much nicer than other places that we have been. OUr apartment is nice and much roomier than our place in Salt Lake and those of you who experienced our small apartment, know that it isn't very hard to find something bigger. Since we have been here I have already had 2 jobs and now looking for a 3rd. As soon as we got here I got hired for a bridal shop down the street and it seemed to be perfect, however then I met the owner. She just runs her business a little sketchy, so I started working for a compan called Vangent that helps students fill out the FAFSA. After about a week I felt really uncomfortable about it and so now I am once again looking for a job. However, the day after I decided to quit Vangent, I get a call from the District Manager of Motherhood Maternity. A friend of hers from Coldwater Creek that I almost interviewed with, gave her my name. I interview today. Pretty whirlwind. Wewill have to see what happens. Jonathan it working for ATT as their Apple Product Professional for the new iphone. He is really excited to work with it. So that is up to date in a nutshell. More to come as the adventures of Iowa unfold!!!

Wednesdays

I like Wednesdays. They are slower than the other days and it gives me a chance to catch up on emails and my blog. Nice. It's the calm before the storm I guess you could say. So Jonathan and I have no idea when we are moving and it is driving me crazy. I like to plan things way far in advance, and it is hard when I can't do that. We are excited to move and will probably move in May or June sometime. We will have to see. I feel bad leaving work so early, but I am excited to go. Who knows.

Don't Yell at the Messenger

Why is it that brides feel a need to get mad at me, when I have no control over the company that is making their dress? This lady called and wanted to order the most awful bridesmaid dresses in the most awful colors; Tangerine, Fushia, Electric Blue, and Key Lime. It also doesn't help that the dresses are these frufy, but the company that has them is out of stock, so it is going to take 14 weeks to order and they won't come in until about a week before the wedding. We have a style that is almost exactly the same that we have in stock and she could have in a couple weeks, but she said she hated it, which I don't know how that works. CRAZY! So she is angry with me because her dresses are coming in right before the wedding. Not my fault. Don't yell at the messanger, please, we don't appriciate it and it isn't our fault.

The Bandwagon...

Well I thought that I would join today's world and start my own blog. Here it goes...
Life as I know it is very interesting right now. Jonathan is busy with school and getting ready for his recital in April, and I am working at LatterDay Bride. So things are going well, and we decided that it is off to Iowa for next year for Jonathan's Doctoral program. Get ready for the snow!! I told Jonathan I'm excited to go to Iowa, and I really I am, but in order for me to move there I will require covered parking. I discovered this desire last week while Jonathan was in Florida for an audition and it snowed about 6 inches, which isn't alot, but it was heavy wet snow and it took me 15 minutes just to get the snow off my car. Six inches isn't alot and it was time consuming and Iowa gets a lot more snow than we do here. It is going to be a very fun and interesting adventure. Bring it on!!!
