I guess we can start backwards, since I do not know how to get the pictures in the right order... This is us in Santa Monica, California. Take note of the ocean and pier behind us. This is actually a funny adventure. We took a bus from our hotel to Santa Monica. It took 1.5 hours!!! We thought that ten miles at most would take 30-45 minutes. Nope, not when you stop at a bus stop every 5 blocks. Even better was that we were on Santa Monica Blvd the whole entire time. Interestingly, within those ten miles, we saw the slums, Beverly Hills, the Los Angelos temple, and finally Santa Monica! I was quite the experience.
This right here is in Ensanda, Mexico. We bought two things while we were on our cruise: sunglasses and a woven bag perfect for church! Ensanda was quite the mexican town! It definitely boasted everything one thinks about when they think about Mexico.
This is taken at La Bufadora. Funny name, huh? It was the thing to go see and do in Ensanda. It was this blow hole where the rock were positioned a certain way so when the tide came rushing up, it would create a huge splash high into the air. It was beautiful.
On Catalina Island, California, or first stop of the cruise, we rented beach cruisers and rode all up and down the island. It was fun and a great workout to clear us of all the food we ate on the ship. For the remainder of the day, we walked up and down the streets with all the tourist shops and hung out on the beach. Landon created this masterpiece for everyone to enjoy at the beach. How cute...
I think that this picture is so cute! That is why it goes up on the blog. We tried to get a suntan, instead we got sunburns. But it was the first one of the year, so we weren't complaining too much :) So I guess that is our honeymoon in a nut shell. We'll leave out all the yucky love stuff...

The newlyweds have been married for over a month!

We are married and it has already been more than a month! I just wanted to put up some pictures of Landon and I taken by our friend Mandee ( Also, let everyone know how the first whole entire month has gone for us... We actually didn't even realize that this last Tuesday, April 20 was our one month anniversary. Oh well, I guess that means we have been super busy with school, work, getting the apartment put together and then more school and work. Oh ya, did I mention school and work?
We had a great time on our honeymoon. Nice job Landon for getting all that put together and organized! But after the honeymoon was over, it was right back into what we do best: school and work. Landon is finishing up his last semester as a Junior in Computer Engineering and works at L-3 Communications during the rest of his time during the weekdays. I am into my second semester at the University of Utah trying to get pre-requisites done so I can apply for Dental Hygiene school as soon as possible and work at Lunatic Fringe on Parley's Way. (Holla if you want to get in and see me! 801.463.1878) Landon is ready to get out of school and climb his way up the ladder and I am happy to be in school and back at Lunatic doing what I love, hair.
As far as our apartment goes, we are slowly making it into a home. Landon is trying to make our dining room area a high tech home office with his, oops! I mean our, new computer and a modern desk that he made from an IKEA butcher's block counter top and four metal legs, it looks great! He is loving his tax return money for sure! We also got a brand spanking new sectional couch that we both love! It looked like it would fit perfectly in our living room, and it does. Although, there is no room for any other furniture. We are trying to make it all work, but we have loved being able to sprawl out and watch Redbox movies that we seem to get almost every other night on our television propped up on one of our end tables. A TV stand is on the list. We have definitely filled our surroundings with things that we don't need and money that would look really nicely in the savings account, but what fun would life be without accessories and spending money? None! We are excited for our apartment pool to open up and be able to spend some time in the warm sun this summer :)
