Falling in Love Again

So just had to post this, but last night I came home from a meeting around 10:30pm. Ryan stayed up playing on his computer until I came home (sweet huh). We had a five minute conversation about the meeting and then he headed to bed. I did a few things around the house, turned off lights and locked door, then headed upstairs to go to bed as well....

We are lying in bed and I tell Ryan that I am starving. He sits up and asks if I want him to make me some pancakes!!! I paused thinking about warm chocolate chip pancakes hot from the griddle, covered with syrup, served to me in bed by my husband. Oh.... but then I thought about Ryan staying up another 30 minutes when I know he has a 7am meeting. I told him thats sweet but he didn't have too and gave him a kiss good night.

I have to say that I fell in love with Ryan again when he offered to make me pancakes!!

Football Frenzy

You can't have a fall without some FOOTBALL! We love us some football... We got College Football, Intramural Football, Fantasy Football, and Monday Night Football!

Like I said we love us some football. It's the perfect time of year for it. The weather is cool and crisp. Makes me crave a hot dog and some nachos :) The sad thing is it makes me miss BYU and going to their football games with friends and family. BUT Missouri is very colorful and vibrant.

Ryan is on an intramural team with some friends and it is fun to watch him and hang on the sidelines with the other wives.

In the Mood...

ok ok get your mind out of the gutter!! But really, I don't know if it was the weather or going on all the summer vacations, but I AM BACK!! I feel normal again and feel back into my same routine... I finally want to clean and cook meals again and just be the best wife ever! Today I cleaned me house from top to bottom, did all the laundry, and made dinner!

I think Ryan is going to appreciate it because now we won't eat peanut butter sandwiches every night and he'll have clean clothes and our house will look and smell pretty!

Gotta go finish folding laundry... PEACE

We spent most of the time in Columbia with Ryan's brother Tyler. We ate at some fantastic restaurants. We tailgated for the opening University of South Carolina football game (sorry no pictures), toured the town and campus and went to the Clemson vs South Carolina soccer game. And we also enjoyed watching BYU beat Washington... GO COUGARS!


We spent a day and a half in Charleston and did a boat tour of the harbor and then a carriage ride through the city. I loved the architecture of colonial America and enjoy the stories of the civil war.

my future beach house!

We had great weather and a nice sea breeze to keep us cool. We saw pelicans diving into the ocean and catching fish and also DOLPHINS!! Dolphins were swimming around the shrimp boat feeding off what they were throwing back into the ocean.

We went and toured the Boone Hall Plantation. They had origin slaves homes that served in the house. They had a Gullah guy that did a demonstration on the slave language, and religious beliefs and how they had to adapt them to being in America and learning English.

It was such a fun trip to Charleston. Thanks Ryan and his parents for surprising me with a night in Charleston.

It was a great 23rd birthday!!!

BBQ Beach and Birthday

Ryan's brother Tyler treated us to bbq for my prebirthday dinner. I mean in the the south we have to have some BBQ!!! And as a bonus, my brother Ryan came down from Charlotte to spend the day with us!

For my actual birthday Ryan and I went to Charleston and stayed in a hotel right on the beach! We spent the day relaxing and Ryan enjoyed eating tons of seafood (I don't allow it in my house)

Along for the Ride

Ryan and I hit the road early Saturday morning... We were expecting it to be a 16 hour car drive and we planned on staying the night in Nashville to help break up the drive. Once we turned on the gps and realized it was only a 13 hour drive we decided to keep going.
