Hey all, Lots of things have been going on in our lives lately. To make it easier on everyone, I'll just bullet point all of the exciting things that have happened in the past 3 months.
-Greg and I found jobs in Park City (we were going to work at Park City Mountain Resort, but the season wasn't doing well, so they couldn't offer us jobs). I have worked at a tourist retail store called Otto Parts on Main Street and Greg has worked at a ski rental shop up at the Hyatt Escala at the Canyons Resort. Both of these jobs have been really good for both of us, but it has been a long winter.
-Greg and I both got into BYU for the Spring Term!!! This is probably the best news we have gotten all winter. We seriously are SO excited. The night we found out, we were jumping for joy and screaming and celebrating. Our dream has come true!
-Greg thought he was going to have to wait for a year and a half to get into the Business program at BYU because his counsellor told him he wouldn't be able to finish his prereques in time for the deadline to apply for the Fall 2012 or Winter 2013 semesters. It was really sad and such a bummer for him. But, we ended up finding out that his counsellor was COMPLETELY wrong and didn't know what he was talking about, and fortunately Greg can apply to get into the Fall 2012 semester for the Mariott School of Business. As for me, I'm still doing Elementary Ed, and I'll start my program in the Winter 2013 semester. Greg and I will graduate around the same time (he might graduate a semester or so earlier than me).
-We found a really cheap apartment in Provo. I know this sounds like not that cool of a thing, but finding apartments that are actually available for a cheap price is harder than it seems. Those of you who have had to do this, you know what I'm talking about. Those of you who haven't, just you wait. We actually move into it on Saturday from our current apartment in Heber, Utah. So, that's pretty exciting!
-Greg's brother Shaun came home from his mission the day before my birthday. It was such an exciting reunion for his brothers and sisters and parents, and it was great meeting him for the first time at the airport. He is such a great guy. He's really solid in the gospel and loves to have fun. Greg, Shaun, and I have been playing soccer together on Wednesday nights at an indoor soccer park since he's been home. It's been really fun hanging out together, all of us.
-For my birthday, Greg got me a flight to go to California to visit my family whenever I want. That was such an awesome present- I really miss my family, and he definitely knows that (considering I tell him all the time). I haven't used it yet, but I will, don't worry. In a few days, we are driving down to California together to visit my family and go beach camping at Leo Carillo! We are both SUPER stoked! It's going to be so much fun!
-A month or two ago, Greg and I went camping. I can't remember the name of the lake we camped at, but it is really close to Park City, probably like 15 minutes east. We were the only campers there, I guess because it is too cold for everyone. But we are hardcore campers, so we set up our tent, made some hot dogs, roasted some marshmellows, and just had a really great time together. Unfortunately it was really windy, but it didn't bother us too much. We still had fun!
We have had a lot of fun this winter, despite the terrible snow we have received (or lack thereof). We have gotten to go skiing in the bad snow, but it was really fun. We've gone on lots of hikes, gone to the hot springs in Spanish Fork, hung out with Greg's family a lot, and just have enjoyed each other and being married. We love it!
P.S. Sorry there aren't any pictures! I'll try to post some later.
