[ oh marriage! ]

I can't believe it's just over a week since we got married....and we're still we should be good right? lol j/k Marriage so far has been aaaammmaazzing! I love it, I don't know why I took so long to get married. ;) We haven't even had our first fight.........yet lol but I'm pretty sure it's because Shawns been a wonderful cooperative husband. I'll be the first to admit it was kind of weird at first spending ALL our time together. We didn't, or shall I say haven't taken our honeymoon yet, I mean do we really need one in our situation?? lol... With it being our wedding weekend we knew a lot of family would be here from out of town so we wanted to spend time with them before they headed back (and that we did). It also happened to be General Conference weekend so what better way to start off marriage than to seek council from our beloved prophet?? (and that...we did as well) 
So instead of taking a honeymoon my best friend Kerri-ann booked us a room for the weekend at the hotel she works at. It. was. beautiful. - I guess it really is all about who you know and what they know... we got hooked up with a nice couples sweet, decorated and all to fit the occasion, complimentary meals & room service, along with gifts and goodies everyday. =) We were pretty spoiled! 
(Thanks K and the Hilton family) 
We definitely needed it for the weekend and glad we took up the offer. 

catchin up on my instagram "photo of the day" lol

Since then life's been pretty sweet. We really try to spend a fair amount with each family. As much as I love the "married life" I do find myself homesick. Meaning, I miss my parents house and being home with everyone. I miss my siblings at the house and all our late nights even though Shawn and I live less than 5 minutes away haha. I guess I'm more lucky since they're right there- where with Shawns all live out in Bountiful, but even with my family 5 minutes away trying to get everything situated and in place has really cut time with both families. Hopefully we get everything settled in and situated SOON that way we can see our families more. I can't even imagine how it'll be when the baby gets here....but i'm sure we'll be ready by then. 
I thought maybe it's a good thing that we just barely got married and aren't that use to being around each other 24/7 that way when he does leave to football camps for weeks at at time it won't effect me too bad. But even if it does.... THANK GOD for flying benefits right?? That'll be our lifesavers... but til then I'm gonna soak up all the time I have with my husband. =)
That's just a short update on us. We're looking forward to our next doctors appointment for our baby girl. She should be about 14.2 inches long and a little over 2lbs.... I swear she weighs more with all the weight i've gained. hahaha.... Our last appointment doctor said she was healthy and doing good, but we're crossing our fingers this next appointment because we're checking to see if we have gestational diabetes... =/ So far everythings been working out perfect keep us in your prayers. 

Have a happy week!!! =)
