Busy, busy, busy

Wow! Steven and I are two busy bee's. I feel like I never get to see my husband! During the week Steven and I see each other for about 2-3 hrs per night and for us that is not much time at all. Usually during those few hours we are doing some type of homework which makes our time even less. This semester has been a busy one for both of us, I am student teaching and working, and Steven has some demanding classes and works. So we are extremely ready for a break! Why is it not December yet?! I mean, no I am not ready for Christmas, but I cant handle being a nobody, not having time for anyone or anything, and not having energy to do anything! I can not wait until we are finished with school and can spend quality time with each other. And heck, summers off together.. nothing is better than that!
So as you can see, we haven't had a lot of time to blog or do other things that I want to get done. Another reason I haven't blogged in a month is because nothing too exciting has happened to us. We have done some fun things like go to the ReAL playoff game on Halloween, we also went to a fun Halloween party that my sister in law throws every year, we have had a lot of fun playing with our nieces and nephews, and we are still playing indoor soccer, which the past year or two has become my favorite sport! I LOVE IT! It helps to have the most supportive husband that will boost you up even when you know you shouldn't have missed that shot! He is so great to play with which makes it fun for everyone!
Student teaching is going well. The kids are crazy, but fun. I have learned so much from this experience that I would never learn from a classroom, so I am glad I get to gain that knowledge. But, I will be even more glad when its over!!!!!!!
And in other news.. The Jazz started last week which Steven and I are extremely excited about! So hopefully we will save our pennies and get to go to a few games this year.
Well Happy November! I cannot believe it is already the end of the year, it freaks me out! But hopefully next year will be as happy as this year has been! I am one lucky girl to have a wonderful husband and family!

Cruise 2009

Well Steven and I have been soo spoiled the past few years! We are lucky enough to have been able to go on yet another cruise. This cruise was my forth cruise and Steven's third cruise. We usually try to go on one every year, we save every penny for a full year just to make it, but it is completely worth it. This year we got the pleasure to go with Steven's family. We usually go with my family so it was so fun to actually go on a real trip with his family. The cruise was awesome! We made so many awesome memories and had a blast spending time with each other. This cruise was out of Long Beach, CA and we went to Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. In Cabo we went parasailing, which was awesome! We were 600 ft above the water and it was probably the most relaxing thing I have done in years. Amazing. In Mazatlan we went into the town and visited the Cathedral and shopped a little. Mazatlan was extremely ghetto and I was pretty uncomfortable there. There was a market where there were bloody pig heads, clothing, popsicles,and raw meat all in the same hot area. GROSS! In Puerto Vallarta (which was my favorite by far!) we spent the day at Krystal Beach. It was absolutely beautiful and amazingly enough we had the whole beach to ourselves! Leslee (Sis in law), Rachel (sis in law) and I spent a good hour or so looking at necklaces on the beach. We prob paid the lady's rent for a year with the stuff we bought! ha ha..
The boat was very nice and we had a lot of time to do whatever we wanted. We spent a lot of time in the game room. We also spent a lot of time in the casino, unfortunately we didn't come back with any winnings. It was still fun.
It was a perfect break from school and now I think we can make it the rest of the semester. If you haven't been on a cruise I highly recommend going on one, even if you have to save your pennies for a year or two, do it! :)
