Ready!

All the presents are wrapped and neatly placed under the tree!
Probably more than there should be.
I may have spoiled my husband.... a lot.
It's his turn for that.
He spoils me plenty.

That's all.

LOVES!

Random much??? Why yes!

Aaron has been at work for the last 13 and a half hours. I've been off for the last 7 hours. I'm not very good at entertaining myself and I am officially b.o.r.e.d.
I started making heath bar cookies and half way through realized that I don't have eggs. I read that you can substitute 2 tablespoons cornstarch for every egg in cookies, so I gave that a try. They turned out pretty good. I mixed them too much, so they could have been better. I will probably still eat them all in the next week. I LOVE home made cookies. They are kind of an addiction of mine. I can't just eat one!!!! Best addiction ever! :)
Another random thought, I cant stop buying Aaron Christmas presents. haha I keep saying I'm done, then I think of something else I know he wants. I want to get him everything I ever remember him saying he wants. He has expensive taste so I can't buy him everything, I've already spent so much. Ekk. I think I'm really done as of today though. I love knowing he'll be happy with what he gets, But I hate thinking that he might wish he had something else too. haha! Yep. I love him.
Our Christmas tree has a decent amount of presents under it and that makes me happy. We didn't procrastinate this year! Yay! Only one more present. I just don't have any idea what to get for them..... hmmmmm.....
Today was soooo cold! I had to work at the window for the majority of the day today, which is pretty typical. I thought my ears were going to fall off!!! It was 2 degrees when I got to work. Better than yesterday though. Good thing I have the hobo gloves Sarah got for me! I've also heard them called glomits.... haha that's just silly.
Well, I think that is all the random thoughts I can think of today.
Holly out.

Annnnnnnndddd we're back!!!

Hello all!
Well everyone who is still checking that is....
It has been awhile eh?
Have I mentioned we are busy people? Cause we most assuredly are!
I should have more time on my hands now.
I just finished a class I took in Phlebotomy! I must brag that I got 100% on the practical, 92% on the final/national exam, and an A overall! Go me!!!! I'm pleased. I'm a certified Phlebotomist! Saaaaaaweet! I absolutely LOVED the class! I miss jabbing people with needles. It's such a high when you see that you got blood! I'm very much a vampire. Now I just wish I could get a job doing it so I can get back to it.
Also, something new, we bought a puppy! His name is Willis (whatcha barkin bout Willis?) He's a min pin and a little pain in the butt! haha but we love him. He's like a child. He puts everything in his mouth! Good thing he's cute.
We had our 1 year anniversary in September. We had a great time touring through beautiful Wyoming.
For Halloween we had a couple parties to go to. We went as Kermit and Miss Piggy and had a good time. I've never been a blond before... I think I'll stay brunette. :)
Thanksgiving we spent with my family and enjoyed good food and great company. I love my family and don't see them enough. I hope to live closer to them soon than later. We also visited my fantastic Aunt Debbie and her girls and grand kids. Oh we love them lots. Sweetest family.
Black Friday included lots of shopping, awesome deals, and going to see Harry Potter and eat at Aggies with my Daddy and Aaron's family for my Birthday.
Now we are just getting ready for Christmas! Went to see the lights last weekend with our "other family" the Anderson's. They are so much fun! We took the front runner (soooo dizzy!) and a great time. I was so happy to see Kim and Ken's baby for the first time! So handsome!
Also, today I got to see Becca's baby for the first time. She's a doll! Such a good little princess. I loved holding her. Don't worry Becca, I enjoyed seeing you too. :)
Well, that pretty much gets us all caught up! Look for more updates soon!
Merry Christmas ya'll!!!

America's Birthday

This weekend was fantastic! I love the Fourth of July. So many fun things going on! Luckily we made it to ALMOST everything that we wanted to go to.
Friday we went fishing at the fish farm with some of Aaron's family. It was lots of fun. I am cursed when it comes to catching fish. I don't believe I will ever be able to catch one. I don't know what it is. I think it's a big sign that you can't catch fish when you don't even catch one at the fish farm. I guess it took everyone else a while to catch theirs as well. Each of them caught one fish. They were big fish too! I did however get two bites. I've never even gotten that far before. Both of those fish got away though. It was still a lot of fun. We didn't want to leave, but we had to make it to the fireworks!
We went to see the fireworks with Becca and Lewis. Did I mention that I LOVE fireworks? Cause I totally do! The fireworks out here are always the best! They last for a long time and the finale was amazing! I've never heard so many fireworks go off at the same time in my life. We had a pretty good spot to watch them too. I only wish it had been a little warmer. Brr...
Saturday was the cruise in. Normally, I spend the Fourth of July weekend up at Bear Lake with my family. Last year, the Fourth was the first time my family went to Bear Lake for the season. It was hard to think about going alone, but I wanted to go. And by alone, I mean without Aaron. I needed his help dealing with it then. He wasn't too happy to have to miss the cruise in, cause he loves it. I promised him we would go this year. So as much as I wanted to go to Bear Lake again this year, I sucked it up and went to the cruise in with my husby.
For those of you who don't know, the cruise in is a showcase of really nice classic and custom cars. The last day of it they do a parade which is just driving up and down the street for everyone to watch. We didn't end up going to the walk around part. We decided it wasn't worth paying that much for it. But, the parade was so fun! As usual, we sat by our second family, the Anderson's. They are tons of fun. So entertaining! We love them.
The last time we ended up going to the cruise in was 2008. That was the day that Aaron told me he loves me, well actually he made me tell him that I love him first, but that's a different story. It was great to go to the parade again and remember that wonderful day. :)
Sunday, after church we went up the Bear Lake for the day. Yay! We hung out on the beach with my family and buried my nephew in the sand. Fun! Also on Sunday Carter took his first steps! We weren't there to see it happen the first time but we saw it happen several times after. So precious! We had to entice him across the room with food. He definitely has a lot of the Isakson gluttony in him. :)
Sunday night we lit off the illegal Fireworks my brothers bought on the way and some we've had laying around for awhile. The cops up there don't care about fireworks since it's so wet. We had so much fun with it...even though we almost blew ourselves up....twice. The first time Darin lit a firework before putting it in the launching tube. It was one just like the professional ones. Well, he couldn't get it in the tube in time. He dropped it on the ground and tried to put it out with his foot. Well we thought it was out for a second...until it exploded once. It wasn't too bad so we started walking away and a second later it exploded again, this time it was LOUD! Holy cow! The sparks flew all around us. Scared the living day lights out of me! The second time, for some reason the firework only got a few feet off the ground when it exploded. I just remember being surrounded in red sparks. I was understandably a little nervous lighting the rest of the fireworks. It's a good laugh now, but could have ended a lot worse than it did.
Monday, We both had work off, yay! We got to be in a parade for Aaron's work. We did it last year too. It's a lot of fun. The kids get sooooo excited just for some candy. They are so dang cute. The best part is, Aaron got paid for this. Three hours of work that was just fun time. I hope we get to do this again next year!
As you can tell, we had a great time! I love the summer time. So many fun things to do. Just don't want it to end. Ever! :)

This post is too long.

That's all
Loves!

More fireworks please!

June

I haven't had much to blog about this month. Life has been very busy, but only with boring things. I can't believe It is already the last day of June! The summer needs to stop going by so fast. Here are a few of the things that happened this month:

June 4th was the birthday of the cutest little boy ever! My Nephew Carter turned one. It was super fun to watch him open his presents and attack his cake. He is the most precious thing. So funny, and always makes the perfect faces for pictures. Love him!!! Here are some pictures of that fun:



June 5th was one year since Aaron proposed to me. We didn't do anything to celebrate really, but it was a very happy day. Fun to look back at the last year and how things have changed and gotten so much better. I can't believe it, but I love him even more than when I said yes.

Father's Day was relaxing. Saturday we went to Bear Lake and celebrated with my family. We had a very nice steak dinner, as usual. Sunday we hung out with Aaron's family. We all just relaxed and had a good time. I got Aaron a shirt as a father's day present. No, I'm not announcing anything. I just wanted to get him something since he will be a daddy to our kids one day.... one far away day. Mostly, he just needs some more shirts.

We went to my Nephew Max's last baseball game. He's a freaking superstar! He hit a home run that almost hit the cars in the parking lot. He can smack that ball so far. It's crazy that he's already 7 years old! It always surprises me when he's with kids his age how much taller than the rest of them he is. My family isn't known for our height, so he's going to tower over Carter when they are grown up. :)

We have gone fishing quite a bit this summer. Still no luck. Maybe one day I'll catch my first fish. Last Friday we went night fishing with some guys Aaron works with. We got there just before 10PM and stayed till some time after midnight. Only one guy caught something and it was just a baby catfish.

We have had a lot of fun this summer so far. I love it. I just want it to slow down so I can enjoy it for longer.

Trying to leave on a jet plane

Our adventure, trying to get home from Virgina
So all of us had airplane issues at some point on the trip. My dad's plane got delayed 7 hours in Houston on the way to Norfolk, got to his hotel around 5am. Sucky! My brother Eric's plane got cancelled and couldn't get re booked till the next night so he had to miss the graduation.
Ours was quite the adventure.
We get on the plane to go from Norfolk to Atlanta, it had already been delayed a half hour and our layover was just under an hour. We were worried about missing our connecting flight, especially cause the Atlanta airport is huge! While sitting on the plane in Norfolk waiting to take off, the pilot says there is a ground stop in Atlanta because of bad weather, we couldn't even take off till it was lifted. half hour later the ground stop was lifted and we left for Atlanta. We missed our connecting flight by a good 20 minutes. to get re booked you just scan your ticket and a machine gives you your new ticket. We were now Scheduled to go to San Diego then to Salt Lake make it to SLC at 1 AM. We were only going to have about an hour layover again. Take a shuttle to our gate. Wait around, then hear that the flight to San Diego got delayed and we weren't going to make our connecting flight. Time to get re booked again. This time we talked to an actual person who said there was a "better" direct flight we could get on that would get us there at around 9 PM instead. Great! So we get on a shuttle again to go wait at that gate. After waiting for a couple hours, the flight got delayed an hour, immediately followed by being cancelled. Time to wait in line to be re booked again, we are now struggling to be patient. We get to the front and a guy comes to the side and asks the lady at the desk if he can go first. She says he has to ask us. We didn't want to let him go. I ask "are you trying to get re booked on the Salt Lake flight?" "Yes" "Well then I don't think so, we don't want to loose a spot" He proceeds to tell us how has a deadly disease in his jaw that is worse than flesh eating. He needed to get to the U of U hospital for an emergency surgery. He had been booked on that flight because he was told it was the most sure one not to be cancelled or delayed. He paid $1,200 for a first class ticket so he would be sure to have a seat. Bad luck. A closer look at him and we notice that is jaw is about twice the size it should have been and he had little tubes coming out of his neck. "Wow okay, by all means go ahead"
We all ended up on a flight that they had just made just for those of us who were having trouble getting to Utah. Another shuttle ride later, and we are at a very colorfully decorated gate. Strange. An hour of waiting, and our gate gets changed. Hop back on the shuttle and we are at a gate right next to our first one. What a day. We boarded that flight an hour after the scheduled time. Glad to just finally be on a plane. Once we are all settled in our seats, the pilot comes on the speakers and says we are just waiting for the catering to show up and then we can leave. Heaven forbid we leave with out our peanuts! I was just planning on sleeping the whole way home, not snacking. It took and hour and a half for the snacks to get there. Finally we take off. It was actually really pretty with all the lights outside. We slept on and off most of the way. We make it to Salt Lake City at 2:30 AM, home 4:30. We had to be back in Logan at 7 AM for a food co-op. We only got two hours of sleep, picked up our produce, went back home and slept till 1 PM. Longest day ever. I've never been so happy to get to lay down in my own bed. I never want to see the Atlanta airport again. That's for sure. 12 hours of waiting there were more than enough. Oi

That's all.
Loves!

Finally VIRGINIA/DC huzzah!


Dr. Kevin---Mermaids are a symbol of Norfolk and are all over

The beach after the graduation and dinner on the pier

Petting sting rays at the aquarium---Corn hole! Great local game!

Battleship. Sign pointing wrong way----Trapped in Williamsburg

Fishing in the Ocean------------------Aaron caught a freakin Shark!

Teddy--------------------------------Utah baby!! The WWII memorial

Lincoln and Lincoln------------------------------Hello Abe!

The white house----------------------------Snipers on the roof!

Reflection-----------We are the dot at the bottom. It's sooo tall

Nats VS. Mets!---------------Buzz Aldrin's uniform at a Smithsonian



Well, that pretty much sums up our vacation. I Finally figured why it wouldn't let me edit or organize the pictures so I could get this blog posted already. So, a little late, but here you go.
We had a lot of fun! It was so great to see my brother graduate! Such an accomplishment. He's such a smarty. I wish I had some of that in me.
While in Virginia we went to Williamsburg, the beach, fishing, an awesome old dinner and movie theater, and the aquarium. Fishing was my favorite! I didn't catch any thing, but it was cool to see what everyone else caught. Aaron caught a shark, a guy next to us caught a sting ray, my dad caught a pig fish that snorts. We forgot sunscreen, so we all got burned, but I got fried. I've never been burned so bad in my life. I don't know what it is with me and getting horribly burned with giant blisters lately, but I seem to be really, very good at it. I'm still peeling and pink some places. I'm so glad it doesn't hurt or itch any more though.
The aquarium was awesome too. We got to pet horse shoe crabs, some other kind of crab, starfish, and friggin sting rays! I love petting the sting ray's cause they are killer animals!They killed one of the greatest outdoors guys ever, and we can just stick our hands in the tank and pet them? Crazy!
In DC we did the typical touristy stuff. Took the Metro into town, saw the monuments, a few of the Smithsonian's, went to a National's game (they won!), and the National Archives, which was so cool to see! At the Nats game, apparently something historic happened involving a triple play and a home run by the same person... or something like that... I don't know. I'm not a huge baseball fan. It's hasn't happened since like 1950 something though. But it's really cool that I was there to sort of witness that :) I loved the game though. It was great! DC is always so much fun!


Great vacation! Time to start planning the next one! :)

The end!
Loves!

GO NATS!

Cinco de Mayo! Ole!

Today is the fifth of May.
Honestly,
I don't know why it's celebrated.
But it is. So I decided to join in on the celebrating this year. So HERE is how I chose to celebrate:



That's attractive.
It's a chicken nacho cheese chalupa from Taco Bell, which is almost Mexican food. It also happens to be my second favorite fast food joint. Mmmmm I also had some cinnamon twists which I love cause they are cheap, tasty, and almost no calories. Three of my favorite adjectives. Okay, so only two of those are adjectives, but you get what I mean.
The festivities of the day will continue later on tonight when we go to El Sol for dinner. El Sol is Aaron's Favorite Mexican eatery. Will be a good night.


This last part is only for the girls. LOOK AWAY BOYS! LOOK AWAY.
Okay so here's a good deal for you. If you girls go to Walmart, be sure to check out the feminine products isle. If you buy specially marked Always ultra thin pads or Tampax pearl tampons (which are probably the best tampons on the market, I must say) you get a free movie ticket with purchase. If you get the paper, in the Sunday paper there was a coupon for both in the P&G add. So get something you already need, at a discounted price, with a side of free movie tickets. Why not? It doesn't expire till November. So something I learned the hard way with this, don't go online to redeem the ticket till you are ready to use it. Once redeemed you must use it within 30 days.

Well, that's all for now.
Loves.
End.

Blog spam

I sure do wish I would stop getting spam comments from some random Asian people all the time! It's quite annoying. Any one else get these? If you see them in my comments, don't click on their links.



P.S. Happy May! Summer is soooo close! Then it will finally be Bear Lake season! I'm soo excited! :)


That's all!
I love most of you! ;)

Just thought you should know...



Most days....



We are nerds. But that's okay, because we love nerds.
This is the aftermath of Fundip. Remember that? We sure do!
Maybe we should grow up... but probably not. Life would be soo boring as a mature person.

Spaghetti pie

Oh hello there!
Remember that time I burned my hand? Yeah, that time. I know I keep bring it up. But this will probably be the last time... hopefully.
Any way... when I burned my hand I was making Spaghetti Pie, a recipe my mom would make and we all loved.
So I made Spaghetti pie for the first time since the burn this last week. I was proud that I made it without burning myself this time. I'm pretty sure Aaron was surprised I got through it too. Of course I had to document such a feat.
Also I don't know if ya'll have heard of Spaghetti Pie before so I thought I should educate you in what it is. It's basically just what it sounds like. Pictures describe it better than I could though so here ya go:


Before cooking


After! Yumm-o. It has eggs and Parmesan cheese
in the noodle "crust" to hold it together. Sooo tasty.

Playing a little game of catch up.

I guess I should finally put the pictures from Easter on here. First I'll tell you what we did. Saturday we were going to dye eggs together but after conference, shopping, eating out with Aaron's family, and making frog eye salad to take for dinner the next day, we ran out of time. So the plan was to do it Sunday. Sunday morning turned out to be a lot busier than planned. After making breakfast, finishing the frog eye salad, and the morning session of conference, it was time to get on the road. We decided to go to my dad's house for Easter since my family still makes a pretty big deal out of Easter. It was a fun time. We ate dinner, then had an Easter egg hunt. I am the youngest of my three brothers, then there are my step siblings, which there are five of. There are two that are younger than me, one by just a few months, and one that is 18. So we are all adults, Maybe a little to old for Easter egg hunts.... but we all had a good time. All of us, even my cute little grandma Lucy were running around the house like children getting our eggs. There were really only two kids in on the hunt, and only one of them was old enough to walk or really even care about it. So it was a house full of adults enjoying being kids again. We got 5 eggs of candy and 1 with different amounts of money in it from 2 to 5 dollars. Aaron won big with a fiver and I lost with only two. It was a good time. I really loved seeing my nephews. Carter is going up so fast and is adorable. Too bad he still cries every time I hold him. Max is way too old and needs to stop growing up. He's a little smarty pants.
We were having a good time and didn't end up getting home till it was too late to dye the eggs. So we didn't get our eggs dyed till the day after Easter. haha but it was still fun! I am still a kid at heart, so I love doing things like that. Aaron calls me "youthful" which is a nice way of telling me I'm immature. :)
Here are pictures of our egg dying:



Umm how cute is he? Aw! And look, No beard!


These are our eggs. Aaron got creative and drew all over his.
They look pretty nifty too. Mine are the plain boring ones :)


That is all.

One month

One month from today we will be on an air plane headed to Virginia! My brother is graduating from medical school there. We will also drive up to DC and see all the sights there. We'll be there for one week. The last time I went to Virginia was for my senior trip. It was a ton of fun! That is the only other time I've been on an air plane. I'm so excited! Real vacations are a pretty big deal for me since my family didn't really have any. This is sure to be a great trip! My brother and sister-in-law are very entertaining, and it'll be the first real trip with my lovely husband. I don't get to see my brother very often since he lives so far away. He'll be doing his residency in Alaska, so not really much closer, but a great vacation spot none the less :) We only get to see them about 2 times a year normally. I got to see them quite a bit last year since we all decided to get married with in 4 months of each other. What a crazy year!
Well, I just wanted to tell ya'll how excited I am.
That's all.

Double Coupons? Yes please!

Hi!
Here's another good deal for ya'll to partake in.
As if coupons weren't the best thing ever invented by themselves, this week is double coupon week at K-mart!!!
Meaning, you take in your regular old coupon and the price of it gets doubled $1 off = $2 yada yada. They will do this for any MANUFACTURER coupon up to and including $2 in value. So $4 off one item max. However you can only use it for five things a day. Also, it can't be the same thing twice in a day. You do have to sign up for there savings card to get it to work, but that's free and only takes 2 minutes. If you already have the savings card, then you just have to take it with you. This will not work for K-mart's coupons they send out. Only Manufactured ones.
Want a huge amount of coupons so you have some to take to K-mart everyday this week? Use these websites for free printable manufacturer coupons:
Coupons.com
Smartsource.com
Redplum.com
with some of these coupons you can use them to get things for free when doubled. Have I mentioned I love free? :)
Here is a website to go to to get a $2 women's dove deodorant that if you take in to K-mart this will make it FREE! :)
How cool is that?
This goes till Saturday!
Now, go to K-mart and save a bundle!
Have fun!
Love love love love love!
That's all.

I love FREEEEEE!

So if you know me well, you know that I will do juuuust about ANYTHING to get something for free or for a super duper good deal. And, with the help of a few AWESOME websites, I'm pretty good at it. For example, I own a wallet. Unusual? No. However, this wallet RARELY carries cash it in. I just use my debit card to buy things. What this wallet does carry is coupons. Oh how I LOVE coupons. At times, I have so many I cannot easily close my wallet. Last Saturday I used probably 50 just that day. Yes, I am one of those annoying people at the grocery store who busts out a whopping pile of coupons and holds up the line just to save a few bucks. Actually it probably saved us about 35 dollars that day. Chang chang!
So I have decided that instead of finding these awesome deals and keeping them to myself, I will share them on here and let you guys live it up too. How nice am I? haha :)
So here is today's SWEET deal:

If you text your 16-digit Subway card number to 35562 you will get 50 bonus points added to your card next time you go there, which is the amount of points needed for a free 6-inch sub. How cool is that? If you don't have a Subway card, they are free at any Subway store, you just have to ask. So go eat fresh for free!




That's all.

SPRING TIME!!!

So many days to get excited about this month!
But today is one of the most exciting, after our six month anniversary of course.
It's the first day of Spring! I love it! It's so nice and sunny outside today. Mmmmm and tomorrow it's supposed to be 60 DEGREES!!! Oh hurray! Bring on the warm weather, flip flops, and shorts! So happy for it. There are even little flowers starting to bloom in the yard, AND the grass is starting to turn green. It's usually still snowing here at this time of year. It snowy and cold till the end of May normally. I'm happy it's not and hopefully I don't jinx it!
I am so excited for Bear Lake season to come around again. We didn't get to go much last year cause it was still kind of hard and depressing to be there but I think this year will be much better and I can't wait. Bear Lake has always been my second home and I love it so much. I hope we have lots of beach to play on. I have a feeling we will!
I just want to get outside and camp and hike and play already!
It's going to be a great summer, I just know it! :)

Happy Spring!!!
Get out and enjoy it!

That's all!
Love love loves!

Six months later

We have been married for six months today. Now, I'm not normally one to celebrate fake half anniversaries or birthdays and other such nonsense, but I'm using this as an excuse to get out and go play. We are going to go to the hot springs and relax and have a good time tomorrow. Yep.
So, six months later, and I still love Aaron very much. More actually. Not that that will ever stop. I'm so grateful to have him in my life. We are so blessed. Getting married to him was the best thing to ever happen to me. I'm pretty much the luckiest person alive. My husband is unquestionably the best around. You may beg to differ, but you would be very wrong. hehe ;)
Well, that's all I have to say right now.


I loved him then, I love him now, and I will love him forever! :D

Tim Tam Slams!

I had my first experience with Tim Tam Slams last week. Thanks to Sarah and Brian, Aaron's sister and Brother-in-law, who found Tim Tams at Wal-mart and gave us some for Valentines days. Tim Tams are rectangular chocolate covered cookies. For a Tim Tam Slam you mix up some hot Milo, which is kind of like hot chocolate, then bite off two opposite ends of a Tim Tam cookie stick one open corner in the Milo and suck through the other open corner like a straw. Once you get some Milo in your mouth, you shove the whole cookie in too. It's all melted and soft. All I have to say is YUM!!! Aaron's Brother Ben discovered these while on his mission in Australia.
Thanks Sarah for the greatest Valentines day treat! You're the best! :)

Messy yummy treat!

That's all
Loves!

First Married V-day

So, Valentines Day was just splendid. We celebrated on Saturday the 13th. We went to see Valentines Day the movie. It didn't get very good reviews, but I wanted to see it any way. I wasn't expecting much from it. Turns out, it's a really cute movie. I liked it a lot. It kinda dragged on a little, but was still great. There are a lot of stories to follow, but they all connect in some way. My favorite was Julia Roberts story, which isn't a major part of the movie, but it was sooo cute and unexpected. It made me tear up a little bit.
Any way, after the movie we ate at Texas road house. We went at three so it wouldn't be busy. They had this deal going on for Valentines day that I thought was pretty funny. It was a two for fourty deal. haha Chili's is right down from the street from them with their two for twenty deal (but only if you go at the right time, which we suck at) But yeah, it was very yummy. Tons of food.
After eating we went to play at Magical Moon Toys. If you live in Cache Valley and haven't gone there before, you are missing out. You can entertain yourself four hours! It's for kids, but I'm immature enough to have a great time there. haha But it's free and they have tons of toys out that you can just play with. However, if you have kids, leave them home. No way you're getting out of there with out spending money. Lots of it. I love that store. :)
Sunday after church, we just relaxed. I made yummy Spinach mozzarella meat loaf for dinner. We watched The Notebook, and The Amazing Race and had a very nice relaxing day.
Aaron got me two dozen long stemmed red roses and a nifty Jewelry holder. I got him some new socks. If you know him, you know he loves new socks, but they have to be squishy! haha So I didn't want to just be lame and just hand them to him. So I rolled them up like roses and made a bouquet out of them. It was very fun. I also got him some goodies to eat. Although I think I ate more of it than him :)
It was the perfect weekend. I loved it so much. My husband is amazing and I'm so incredibly lucky.

Look! Pictures:

My gorgeous roses! Love them!


That's all!

Solution

So, when I burned myself, I just felt like an idiot, but Aaron felt very bad for me. He didn't want it to happen again. He is always warning me now "careful, the stove is hot" or "that's hot, don't burn yourself". Silly husby cares too much. So he says I'm not allowed to burn myself again. To make sure I don't, here was his solution:


All metal utensils. This was part of my Christmas presents. How cute is he? So now I can't melt a plastic cooking utensil. I'll just have to heat the metal up and then grab it. haha
So pretty much, I have the best husband. He is very thoughtful. Hopefully theses will prevent me from posting about another burn. :) However, I almost did face plant it right into the fry vat at work last week, there's always a way. haha time for a new job! :)

The end.
Loves!

The burn. Ewwww!

The culprit. Notice how the end is melted. Evil pasta spoon! :)


A few days after. Those blisters were pretty massive.

How the doctor had us wrap it


It was really quite the ordeal to get this wrapped.
thanks to my wonderful husband for helping me wrap it
over and over. He did a great job!

Healing. A few weeks after.


Turns out my thumb, even though it was smaller, was worse than my hand.
It took much longer to heal and hurt for a lot longer.


Now, My hands look almost normal. Just slightly red. I don't think it's even going to scar much thanks to the amazing burn cream the doctor gave us. Also, I don't have to wrap it any more, thank goodness.
