This week...

On Saturday I worked from 2-6:30, but to my surprise, Mike and our brother-in-law Jeremy showed up at around 5:30 with heart shaped pizzas! Here's a picture of a heart shaped pizza I found online (because I'm terrible at taking pictures):

Ours looked very similar, except it wasn't Papa Johns. Then we played games all night. First we played Settlers of Catan, which Jeremy won. We love that game and were glad that he wanted to play with us! Then we played Whoonu, a game that my best friend Sara gave me for my birthday a couple years ago. We had a lot of fun with this one and got to know each other a lot better because of it! We played it several times, changing the categories to make it more interesting. I think I won most of the rounds, but what can I say? I got good cards!

Monday Mike was home all day and I was at work all day! I had to switch days with another girl because BYU decided to make Tuesday a Monday, which is all fine and dandy for people like Mike who work on campus, but makes it difficult for people who have other jobs. That night we went to Outback to use our gift card, and it was delicious! We stopped at the Verizon store on our way home to get a converter for me, but we ended up getting Mike a new phone. He was up for one and he fell in love with the new chocolate, so he got it, and is loving it now.
Almost a month ago, Mike ordered a few edited movies from a place that was going out of business. He finally got them on Tuesday, so Wednesday night we had a couple over to watch Kingdom of Heaven, and Mike and I watched Rambo (whatever the newest one is) last night. He's ecstatic, me- not so much... but at least it makes him happy!

Besides that, it's just work and school for both of us! We're also looking forward (and hoping) to seeing our families relatively soon in March and April/Mayish!

I haven't received my order of movies yet. Are they edited pretty good? I didn't know that Jeremy visited you guys. Did he have a business trip out there? Sounds like you are having fun.

Sounds like you guys had a great Valentines day! I'm jealous of the heart shaped pizza. We ordered in Steak and ended up eating it in different rooms because our kiddos were throwing up all day and night :( Not exactly romantic.

Gee...that best friend of yours sounds pretty amazing....
Can I just say your hubby is adorable (adorably rotten!) Heart shaped pizza - I mean - seriously! How am I supposed to compete with that?!
Anyway, Does that family you will be seeing in March include your twin, brother in law and oh so cutest nephew Lance?!
Oh ps - a long time ago you asked for our blog addy again and I think it's but I'm not sure.....(obviously I've done nothing to it since then...)
