Well, it has been over a year since my last post. Since everyone now has a blog, I figured Skyler and I should jump on the bandwagon.
I can't believe all that has happened in the last year! My friends have become world travelers, many of my best friends have gotten married, I got married, switched colleges, moved apartments, and became a fan of hockey. I can only imagine what will happen this next year.
Speaking of hockey, my husband made the University of Utah hockey team, GO UTES! (Unless they play BYU, then I remain neutral...) I have never watched hockey until now, but I must admit that it is very entertaining. I very much enjoy watching my husband slam the other team's players into the wall. I didn't even know he played hockey until he told me he was trying out for the team... had we dated before we got married I'm sure I would have found out. He is slowing converting me to a UofU fan.
Beginning a new year, along with a new life together, has been very exciting. Skyler and I started the year off with a fabulous honeymoon to Cozumel. We got to spend a week together swimming, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, and cruising around in a "Mexican Ferrari." I bought Skyler a speedo as a joke for Christmas, and he brought it along. I am pretty sure it turned out to be his favorite gift... it has certainly gotten the most use.
Being married has been amazing. I have heard many people say the first year is the hardest, but after being married for five months I can easily say I married the best man! So far, these last five months, have been some of the best months of my life.
Speaking of married life, I recently learned that my husband is a wicked black-jack player. His work took us on a cruise and Skyler taught me his ways. It is the only place I am old enough to play... I can't wait for the day when I don't have to take my marriage certificate on a vacation so I can stay in the same room as my husband and not have to have a 25 year old chaperone.
Back to black-jack, Sky got super sick on the cruise and got quarentined to his room. So I got to hit the tables by myself and try out my new-found skills. I got a hundred bucks to play with, lost eighty-five, then figured "go big or go home!" and won it all back, plus an extra hundred! I felt bad leaving Skyler alone in his agony.... but it paid off.
