apartment.....the funny thing about our apartment is that we actually never got to see it before we moved in. You see in provo, ut married apartments are very difficult to get. We literally found this apartment about 5 days before we were to leave to be married. Davin just had to call the lady and tell her that we wanted it because we didn't really have any choice.
so when we moved in i was so sad because it was so run down and old. Thankfully Davin was able to keep me from crying and we moved in. We were able to make the place fairly acceptable with curtains, painting, cleaning and our own furniture.
this is our DI (good will) furniture that we bought and painted.
this is our coffee table or better known as the "coffin" table....great for Halloween ;-P
Davin and i pretty much just went to the movies, went out to eat and hung out with friends and family. Nothing really too exciting just enjoying each other's company with work and school thrown in there somewhere.
We actually made it a goal to go to all of the utah temples while we are living here. So here are the temple we have visited so far.....
we had the privilege of going to the manti temple with my old roommate and friend Emily before her mission to japan.
we also went to the mt. timpanogas temple (i am not sure if i spelt that right)
we visited the grounds of the st. george temple but did not go in.
and of course we went to the great salt lake temple. We also have gone to the provo temple many times. Great times and very peaceful.
so in July Davin and i went back to michigan for a week. We had made the arrangements so we could go to Davin's good friends wedding. But we had a good time visiting friends and family. My parents took us to cedar point (amusement park) which was way fun. All in all a very relaxing and fun vacation. But when we returned home and were walking up to our apartment door we could smell a horrible smell.....to our horror the stench was coming from our apartment. Apparently in the hurry to unplug everything before we went on vacation i had shut off an extension cord.....which as it turns out Davin had plugged the refrigerator into that extension cord. Needless to say the stench was horrible. The temperature within the apartment was nearly 80 degrees and had cooked everything in the refrigerator and freezer...including some frozen meat. it was awful. Looking back on it it is pretty funny but at the time i almost wanted to cry....needless to say i cleaned the fridge and freezer nearly 5 times with multiple cleaning agents including straight bleach and to my disappointment the freezer still sorta smells. lol
Well that pretty much sums up our first year....oh well i suppose in November to our surprise we found out that i was pregnant. Davin and i decided to wait till Christmas to tell everyone. Thankfully we were able to travel back to Michigan and tell most of our family members including our parents in person about the baby. how we told my parents......
We bought a little baby onesie that said "i love grandma" and wrapped it for my mom and we got little baby booties for my dad to unwrap. We thought we were so clever. My mom figured it out right away but my dad was a little slow on the uptake lol. Needless to say our families were excited and have been a great support. We are excited and terrified at the same time to be parents haha. Apparently it was something that was meant to be and we couldn't be happier to be able to have a baby.
so that was our first year.....crazy how quickly our second year has started to fly by and soon we will have our little boy with us to share in our adventures and some of his own too.
