great quote

"You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."

-Thomas S. Monson

Our Lives

Matthew and I have been enjoying our lives lately! The weather is beautiful and the sun is shining! Matthew just started his next class- Accounting. He still has his final for History and his final paper for english (his last 2 classes). Then he still has economics,organizational behavior, and another one. Work has been good for me. I've gotten use to my 8-545 schedule, including commute. I enjoy reading on the metro and now that it's warmer enjoy the walk to and from. During the week, we don't do much else. We watch our TV shows and relax. Tuesdays is cub scouts- which is really exciting.  Right now we're working on their derby cars. The boys are full of life and energy but it sure keeps us on our toes! On the weekends, we usually clean the house(super fun right! haha) and do something fun. This weekend, we watched the wrestling finals. Matthew really enjoyed it! I fell asleep but what I saw was good! Next weekend, we're hoping to get to see some family down in the city and maybe visit Arlington Cemetery. Living so close to the city is really nice! There is so much to do!
The next few months are going to be really busy for  us! My friends from home, Shannon and Matt, are getting married April 17- but I can't get off the Friday before or Monday after, so it's going to be a trip up on friday night and home one sunday. it'll be fun tho to see everyone. Then Matt's grandma is coming in April 20-27! then in May we'll celebrate our 2 year anniversary. I'm not sure what we're going to do yet but i'm going to take a few days off of work. it'll be really fun- whatever we decide to do. Then my good friend Whitney is getting married May 21 here in the DC temple and then we'll be going up to the reception in PA. That'll be another short trip- up friday after the wedding and home sunday afternoon. Then- we're hoping to do a lot of exploring in the city and having family come in to enjoy the summer. i'm super excited!

anyway- home teachers will be here soon <3 much love!



so- just an fyi-
don't walk 5 miles around the city when you are not in shape.
we are utterly exausted. good day- but never, ever again.
glad tomorrow is still the weekend :)
