So Brandon and I haven't been on here forever! Between my teaching job at the junior high and his schooling, we've been a little busy. Also, Brandon and I are in the process of moving stuff around in our apt. After getting all our stuff moved in, we discovered that the internet worked better in our bedroom area. So now our TV room is our bedroom and our bedroom is the TV room of awesomeness. :) Any way, as soon as it is all done we will post pictures up on our blog so that everyone can see it. Also, I'm going to post some summer pictures while I'm at it, because we had such a fantastic time in Ridgecrest! So, until then...ciao!!!

Date night!!!

Every Friday Brandon and I go on dates together. (Both our parents did it that way, and we really loved the idea!) Usually we eat out or go somewhere fun, but now we think we'll start using the kit my sister, Becky, gave us at our wedding reception. It has match cars, water guns and balloons, and supplies for a "Sprinkle Contest." Watch out Friday night- here come some crazy times! :-D

Summer lovin' :-D

Brandon and I are loving California and married life! We just went to northern California for Memorial Day weekend to see Brandon's Grandma. (She couldn't make it to the wedding or the receptions, so we went up to see her.) She is really fantastic, and has a wonderfully great personality. I like her a lot. :)

She also has a large pool and an almond orchard outside the back yard. (The almonds go to the "Diamond" company.) She also has blackberries, peaches, lemons, strawberries, and cherries. The cherries were just like the ones in Shoshone, as were the strawberries. The lemons were wonderfully tasty, too- we're planning another trip up there to pick peaches later on in the summer.

After spending Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Durham (where Grandma lives), we left early Monday morning. We stopped in the old part of Sacramento to eat, shop, and look around. It happened to be the Jazz fest that weekend, and so their was amazing music wafting through the air. I think my favorite song was done by one of the big bands- "Rubber Ducky" is always a crowd pleaser. ;-)

After we finished out sandwiches and salt water taffies, (It was amazing- the store had TONS of flavors of taffies, and you can pick them out individually because each flavor is in a big barrel.), we went to visit the old cemetary there. Brandon's mom, Charisse, found some family names there, and we took pictures of some of the relatives, including Josiah Howell.

Besides trips around California, I'm substitute teaching and Brandon is working at the Base. Now that's school's ending, however, I need to get another job. I will be looking around some more- the never ending job search is great fun!!! :-P

Any ways, those are the updates. The weather is good, work is great, and we're enjoying life.

Brandon and I are getting married on Saturday! Yay! And since his wonderful family loves to do blogging, I decided to jump on the bandwagon, too. Hopefully people will read it, but if not, at least we can have a grand ol' time with the internet. We plan to put our pictures, thoughts, and news down (well, as they occur). This is a new and exciting stage in our lives, and we want to share it with everyone. :)
