Bring on the panic attack!

So... Tyler and I were set to leave on our first big vacation tomorrow at 7:20 am to Cancun. Exciting huh? Well bring on the "blizzard" and that excitement is mulitplied! (By the way weatherman; if this is a blizzard I am NOT impressed) All I can think about it the warm sunshine and beaches. As the night goes on my phone rings and I assume it's my mom letting me know she got to Arizona safely... WRONG. The voice on the end of the phone makes my heart just sink.

 "We are regretful to inform you that your flight has been canceled"

Let the words sink in. Yep. 3...2...1. GRRRRRRRR. Then my lovely night on the phone begins and I become grateful for unlimited minutes after 7pm. I cannot believe how difficult it is to change a vacation package. Our flights got switched to Thanksgiving day and coming back a day later. However the hotel was a different story. After being on hold forever it was finally decided that my check in/out and flights did not match. Really?.. I promise I'm not a mean person and I feel bad about the person on the other end of the line.. that job has got to be frustrating.. BUT if that's the case then change my reservation!!

After a long conversation and some AWESOME hold music... new itinerary! I have to admit I am a bit disappointed that we have to wait and feeling a bit guilty that I should go to work tomorrow. I know I should try to save my PTO but.. when the husband offers to take my shopping how can I decline? I'd hate to hurt his feelings!!

Now that I'm done venting I'm ready to hit the sack. I won't be uncrossing my fingers until I am on that flight Thursday morning.

Long Due

Well.. it is 4:42 am and for some reason I found my way onto my blog. Tyler and I went out tonight to see a friend who works at Chili's and then we went to see Due Date. One of the funniest movies I have seen in a while! Then we came home and popped in Smallville to which Tyler fell asleep to.

I am sitting here thinking about the point we are at in our lives and find myself pretty satisfied. It's definitely not perfect but I'm excited for the new adventures about to start. Tyler is going to enroll full time this spring in hopes of making his way to the Physician Assistant program at the University of Utah and I will most likely be enrolling in night school at Cameo. We are so excited to get start and find out where we end up!

We have a pretty cute little apartment that I have not decorated yet to my disappointment... I think I'm scared to put something up in fear that I won't like it... or that I'll be tempted to just go buy more things!! We did buy some stuff tonight however so I think I will have to brave it and just go for it. I'll have to post some pictures once I'm done. Hopefully it turns out cute! It won't be too long until I get to decorate for Christmas, which I am definitely looking forward to. However, Tyler and I have a trip to Cancun planned for Thanksgiving which we are SO excited for. It will be our first big trip/holiday so we are counting down the days! I even went and bought a swimsuit for each day... Tyler loves to spoil me and I can't help but give in sometimes:)

Well I've decided it is time for BED. Peace out for now.

Catching up..

Well it has been forever since I have created my first blog.. so let's catch things up to speed. October Tyler asked me to marry him and I said yes. The only trouble was that I was still in Cedar City and it was no fun being 4 hours away, so we were just relying on long holiday weekends to spend time together. Thanksgiving was a blast, we went to Kemmerer to his grandma's house to spend time with her and Aunt Shelly's family. I also went Christmas tree hunting for the first time ever. It was a fun but very long day.
Two weeks after that I finished up with my finals and made my final trip home with the car all packed up. Pulling into my driveway was such a nice feeling, since I knew I would be able to see Tyler as much as I wanted to. Christmas was a ton of fun, we divided up our time between our parents houses. Christmas Eve dinner with the Cheathams and Christmas day dinner at my house. The funniest part was that Tyler and I can't keep any secrets from eachother so we knew exactly what the other had gotten.. We're horrible.

Now it's January and Tyler is still training for his new job as a Health Benefits Specialist for IHC. I am looking for a more stable job but feel confident I will find something soon. We plan on getting married March 13th in the Salt Lake Temple and it's just not coming fast enough!! I'm sure that every engaged couple feels this way though. Funny thing is though that I have not planned a single thing. I should probably get on it.. Anyways I will post some bridals when I get the pictures. I am so excited to see them!
