The Quest

I have recently discovered the deliciousness that is crème brulée. I have only had 3 in my whole life, but after trying the first, I have entered on a mission to sample it at every restaurant that carries it. So far I've had Bambara's in Salt Lake City, Zoom's in Park City, and Spark's in Provo. Bambara's was my favorite so far. I hear Carrabba's and Ottavio's have it too! If you want to join in, let me know, the more the merrier. And the quest continues...

"Baby, be prepared to be surprised..."

We did it! Can I get a "Whoop Whoop?"

Today is Cole and I's one week anniversary! Kinda crazy! The time is flying by. Just last week we were being ushered around the temple, a little nervous and a little giddy. All that planning and it's over in a flash. Now we're living in our tiny apartment, and there have definitely been some surprises. We're poor, like pb&j-three-meals-a-day-poor. I went from Dad paying for everything to crunching numbers and alotting money for vending machine purchases (16 cents a day). I wish I had been a litte more world-wise, but doing all this together makes it easier. There's a built-in support system that comes with all the surprises.

Other revelations: a double bed is a lot smaller than it looks. It probably wouldn't be that bad, but ours sinks in the middle, so even though we start on the outskirts, by morning, we've both been sucked into the vortex. I also didn't think I'd ever see Little Caesar's or McDonald's dollar menu as a treat. I didn't think I'd be heating leftover Little Caesar's in a frying pan because we don't have a microwave. I didn't know that frying pan pizza is actually really good. And I never knew I could be this happy or love someone this much. It's definitely going to be fun. It's time to join the ranks of married blogs, which means a facelift, more pictures and more posts that are coming soon!
