A little recap...

So I know I've been a crumby blogger but here is a little review since Phil's birthday... NOTHING! We have been either studying, sleeping, eating or at school. I'm on my last year and it is getting pretty intense especially from only seeing 1 patient a week last year to 7 a week! I know to those of you who are dental hygienists or to just Shawneen that doesn't seem like a lot but it is to us little students! The only thing that is pretty cool is that I was in a parade last weekend! Beeville puts on a little parade for "western week" (which I thought every week was western week here but anyways...)and our college volunteered the hygiene department. We made our float look like a classroom with a blackboard and stuff and we were toothfairies! It was pretty fun, so I'll post a few pictures of that. Oh and since its been so boring here I decided to dye my hair...again. poor Phil probably thinks I'm going through some kind of midlife crisis or something. We also got to go to a rodeo where a friend of ours was in calf roping and steer wrestling! He got 2nd in the calf roping and 1st in steer wrestling winning $400! We got to walk around the little carnival and I almost got a fabulous carny indian fry bread but we didn't have any cash. Anyways, I'm going to a Halloween party tonight without Phil because he has to I'll post some pictures of that too! Have a Happy Halloween!

Happy Birthday Phil!

Here is the biggest post of the year! It's Phil's birthday today and he turned 26! He is at school all day today form 9am- 11pm so its not the most exciting birthday. And it actually didn't start well. This morning at 2am I heard some noises in the front room so from past experiences I knew not to ignore them, I had my big brave husband go into the kitched and check it out. Luckily it was the the apartment creaking from the wind outside. I don't know what I would do without him. Phil is such a great guy and I feel so lucky to be married to him. To tell those of you who don't know him that well, he has a great sense of humor and always makes everyone feel comfortable, he is hard working, sincere, a great example in all aspects, he's smart and loving and is a friend to everyone. He is an awesome guitar player and is currently teaching himself how to play the piano. Here are some picture of my big boy.

Here he is Easter morning right when he woke up

Happy Birthday Phil, I love you!

Keith Urban!

So heres a little update, nothing too exciting has happened since I last posted except we went to the Keith Urban concert!! We went for Dana's birthday and it was fabulous. We have all gone to see him before but couldn't miss a chance to see him again. Out seats were a little higher up but it was still amazing. We were a little disappointed when we bought the tickets because Sugarland was going to open for them and we aren't the biggest fans, but she backed out last minute to "save her voice" for something else. Lucky us, instead we heard from Sara Buxton and she was pretty good. My dad was saying that at one of Keiths other shows a man was holding up a sign that said "I'll let you kiss my wife if I can kiss yours", Keith jumped into the crowd and kissed his wife and then said "Good luck getting your end".  So, before the show you were able to send a text of whatever you want and it would show up on these 2 huge screens. People were saying "Keith I love you" or "Thanks mom for the tickets". Phil sent one saying "Keith I'll let you kiss my wife if you give me a guitar"...needless to say he didn't get a guitar and I never got my kiss. Taylor sent in one that said "Keith dump Nicole and marry me" and "Hey this is Keith Urban thanks for coming to my show" but none of hers made it on the screen. So overall it was a great night, her are some pictures!

So to start off I want to apologize for not posting anything for a while, I haven't been very motivated with moving around for the summer. Since I last posted I was in Beeville, Phil and I finished off our finals and headed for Arizona for the summer. We had the opportunity of going to Disneyland (courtesy of mom and dad) with the family and it was a blast. It was Phil's first time to the happiest place on earth and he loved every second of it. I didn't take any pictures because my mom, Shawneen and Dana all had cameras so feel free to check them out on their blogs. I forgot to mention that I got to come down for my good friend Aimees wedding, it was such an awesome experience to go see them get sealed together in the temple and their reception was beautiful. I took a couple pictures of that. When we got home from Disneyland, Phil was officially initiated into the ward by going with the young men and my dad on the "Enos Journey" where they hike 25 miles in northern Arizona around Mt. Baldy area. I didn't think he would come back in one piece considering it snowed a couple inches the night before, but Phil and dad made it back with only a couple blisters. Since then I've just been going up to my dad's office a couple times a week to work and Phil's been selling health insurance from home. We love coming home for the summer and may also be able to go out to Tennessee this summer for a family reunion on Phil's dad's side. Well thats it and I hope it doesn't take another month for me to post!

Oh what were we thinking...

To start off, I hope everyone is having a great Easter weekend! During this past week, some friends and I were talking about how much fun it would be to spend the night on the beach because of the long weekend break. So yesterday while Phil was at school, I packed up the air mattress, a couple blankets and some marshmallows and went on my way. Since we didn't want to buy a tent, we thought up the great idea of just putting the air mattress in the bed of the truck. (why not, dad does it all the time). I met Phil and the rest of the group down in Corpus Christi and found a great spot to set up camp. We made our tin foil dinners, and blew up the mattress and I laid a blanket over it so it wouldn't blow away. (Being next to the ocean can be REALLY windy). We spent the next few hours eating our delicious food, roasting marshmallows, and hunting for ghost shrimp. Midnight rolls around and Phil and I decide its time to go to bed. I grab the pillows and blanket that goes over us out of the truck and hop into bed. To our surprise the bed was soaking wet, okay I'm exaggerating but it was pretty wet, from all the humidity in the air. Awesome...we get into bed anyways because our pillows and other blanket weren't wet and can't even fall asleep if we tried because people were still up talking. By the time everyone was in their tents, the wind had picked up and our pillows and blanket were soaking wet. It had gotten so cold that we put the covers over our head and were snuggling just to keep warm. We got to sleep for an hour or two until I heard someone getting into the car next to us, I peek my head out and realize its RAINING! I wake up Phil right away and we were back on the road in less than 10 min. When we got home at 6am later, and went straight to sleep til 11:30am Thats what we get for trying to be social I guess. Oh and not to mention I was in board shorts and a thin sweatshirt. So I'm sure it doesn't measure up to my family's camping trip a couple weeks ago but it was quite the experience. Heres a few pictures to document the occasion

Spring Break!

Here's some pictures from our Spring Break. We haven't done a whole lot, mostly just reading (on my part) and lots of homework for Phil. But we got to go to the beach on Tuesday with a couple of friends. It was so much fun, mostly because Phil had a friend so he wasn't begging me to go into the ocean with him. (It was absolutely freezing when I put my feet in). After the beach we went to Cici's Pizza and it was so good. Naturally we got totally burned, but it was worth it. We've also been just getting together and watching movies and playing games at night, so thats been fun! We can't wait for the semester to be over. We are officially half way!! (P.S. Phil is digging in the sand because they were looking for sand crabs...I think)

Who needs to get pregnant!

What do you think about my little new baby Fetus? - What will your baby look like?

Baby! j/k

So I was blog stalking tonight and I came across someones blog where they put their pictures together to see what their kids would look like. So naturally I gave it a reminded me of How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days, I wish I could have gotten a picture with the baby "yodel yodeling", but this is all they had. I showed Phil and he can't wait to have kids now...

Happy 1 Year Anniversary!

We did it! One full year! It has been so exciting, I love going through all these new experiences with someone I love. I don't think I would have coped here in Beeville all by myself. He is the best example and someone I strive to be like. I know he probably wont read this, but I want him to know how much I love and appreciate him. I know this is kinda cheesy but he really is my best friend and I can't wait to spend more anniversaries together.

Super Bowl 43!!

This last Sunday, Phil and I had the opportunity to host our very first Super Bowl Party! This is actually my very first Super Bowl party everywhere...coming from a family of girls it was amazing if we watched it at all or if I stayed awake to watch any of it. The majority of the party were girls who only came for the food, but we watched the whole thing from start to finish and it was a great game except for the fact that we lost (it was rigged...) Here are some pictures that I took throughout the night, mostly to document that we really do have friends here.

Heres where the gentlemen ran off to during Bruce's big moment.The little guy couldn't handle the Cards losing too...

Heres Phil watching the pre-game before everyone shows up. The food was fabulous, we had some pizza, wings and lots of other goodies. During halftime, Phil took the "men" to his office to show him computer stuff. Everyone stayed after the game to watch the Office. Basically we watched 5.5 hours of T.V. last night. Everyone was totally exhausted in class this morning, but it was worth it!

Just to add, the very first picture is from Halloween. I know it is way past Halloween, but I jsut figured that since I'm playing catch up I might as well add another one. In the picture are a couple from Canada named Denise and Russ. She's in my program and Russ and Phil go out and play golf every once in a while.

Better late then never...

I'm back! I haven't been very good at posting. We had the opportunity to go down to Arizona for a whole month for Christmas break! We don't know why the break was so long but we were not complaining. We finished up our finals on Dec. 16 and made the 16 hour drive from Texas back home, and if you can believe it we left at 5pm and drove through the night relying on Diet Coke and Rockstars. We were so happy to stay with my sister and her family in their guest home, they are so nice for letting us crash and stink up their room (our neighbors underneath us here smoke). I brought my camera and was planning on taking tons of picture but only took like 6 or 7. Christmas Eve was so fun, we ate our "homemade" pizzas, my moms homemade green chili and Serranos bean dip. Phil and I were in charge of the Christmas program this year and it was a great experience, but are excited for someone else to do it this year. Everyone did their little part and we finished up with watching the Nativity movie. This was Phils first year celebrating Christmas with our family so he got his first pair of pajama pants (which are soooo warm and he wears them every chance he gets), and we got a buck knife! Watch out Beeville! For New Years we hung out and watched the ball drop, by the time it was midnight it was just me, Phil and my dad mom was outside with Jess and her friend banging the pots in the middle of the street. Go mom! It was so fun seeing our friends again and just hanging out with our family! We were so sad to leave and can't wait to come back again after this semester! We're going to be there so often, everyone is going to be wishing we would just stay in Texas! Here are the only pictures I have. They were taken after we went and watched some singing at the Temple, if you're wondering why Taylor hair is drenched its because it was pouring rain and freezing while at the temple.
