So I have sat here looking at blogs for the past little while since I needed a break from studying, and decided I really should post something. I caught myself thinking, why don't others keep their blogs more updated. I've looked at the same post for over a month! Then I realized...mine is getting to be that old. Anyways, I will try to redeem myself with post #2.

It was another busy Monday for us. Matt gets home from work in 30 min and I can't wait. It is his birthday tomorrow and to be quite honest, I have been waiting for this day for a long time. He will no longer be younger than me! I tried to convince him one night six months ago that we should wait to be married after his birthday so we could be the same age. That didn't seem to work. For the next few months after that, he loved to point out that he is younger, more fit, and furthest from old age. After tomorrow I won't have to be older!

Another thing I have decided is that Matt and I need to take more pictures! I was looking to see if I could add a picture with this post (since everybody loves pictures) but we have taken none since we've been married. Anyways, I will post a pic of us with Matt's favorite youngest sister Helen!

We love you and can't wait to see you!

Our New Blog!!!

I started a blog! Matt and I love looking at his brother and his sister's blogs. It is so fun to keep up to date with what they and their kids are doing. I also enjoy looking at all my friends blogs! Anyways, I thought it would be fun, but I am new at this and I don't really know what I am doing. So hopefully it works. Here it goes...
So here we are sitting at the Las Vegas Temple where Matt got down on one knee and popped the question! We have been married since Dec. 20th and have had nothing but fun.
We love spending time with our families, especially when we get to play with our little nieces and nephews! (I have eight now! All on the Dixon side) Life is great!, but we still feel like we are playing house. When does it settle in that you are actually married? Not sure. Really I feel like a little girl having sleep overs with my best friend all the time. We are both going to school at BYU and working part time. We've decided we love weekends, because that is when we get to spend time with each other. During the week we don't see each other much from 7:00 in the morning to 9:00 at night. I guess thats how it is being married and going to school. The best thing about it is we have each other. I have to admit that it is so nice not to say goodbye each night like we did when we were engaged. We are living in a little one bedroom basement apartment in Provo. I love having my own place and my own kitchen, one that has no dishwasher and no disposal. Gotta love being poor newly weds going to school! We can't complain, its a Great first place! Anyways, we are so happy and so very blessed! We are enjoying this phase in life and can't wait to see what tomorrow has to offer!
