Soccer and Love

Our ward is awesome and we do so many fun activities.  Branson and I decided it would be fun to join our ward soccer team.  Our first intramural game was last night (actually it was the second, but the first game was the same night as the BYU/SD game and there was NO way B was gonna miss that...) and we had a blast.  It was my first soccer game, ever.  So let's be honest I looked like a lost little sheep on the field.  And I almost collapsed in the middle of the game from running back and forth across the field.  After the game B decided to tell me I was supposed to guard the goalie and stay on the back half of the field. haha.  Wow, woulda been nice to know that from the beginning.  I probably looked so dumb and that definitely explains the faintness.  Well, okay, I'm out of shape.  But it was fun and I can't wait to play again.  I love trying to new things, even if I'm terrible.  I realized I need to give soccer players more credit.  It's harder than it looks. 

P.S.  Thanks for the shin guards, Paigey :)

Oh, and I suppose I should post about V-day.  Branson took me to Kneaders for breakfast (one of my FAVORITE breakfast places) and then we both had class all day.  I had a break inbetween classes so I came home to get some lunch, and I walk in to roses and new black Tom's!  Boy do I love shoes.  And my wonderful husband :)  It was so sweet.  Then we went out to dinner at Osaka and had brownies at home for dessert.  Nothing too special, especially compared to last year when B proposed in Cancun...nothing can compete with that.  I'm one lucky girl.

Looks like we need to jump on the bandwagon and get us some I-phones! haha

Recent stuff

I haven't blogged in a while.  I have been super busy/haven't had too many interesting things to blog about.  So this post will be a bunch of randoms.

Branson and I have been really devoted to the gym lately. A couple of his friends go every morning at 7 am so B likes to go at the time, too.  (Apparently my workouts aren't fun enough for him) Since B knows that his buddies will be there, it motivates him which makes me more motivated to goo, too! (Mind you it's practically still dark when we get up, and FREEZING COLD) That time is really the only time that works with our school schedules, but it really does feel so good to start my day off with a good sweat.

The other day we all decided to start Insanity for the second time.  We did it last winter and it kicked our butts.  But I completely forgot HOW hard it was.  I was done after the warm-up...seriously.  I was so dizzy and felt so out of shape.  The next day when I got out of bed I almost collapsed because my calves were dead.  I am still so sore/  So Branson and I decided to do some YOGAAA!  We found THIS video on youtube.  After about 20 minutes of laughing my head off at Branson, I got pretty into it.  It's so relaxing and it really does improve my flexibility.  I'm sure there are better videos than this, but it worked for us.  I think from now on we will have to do it separately because the laughing really interferes with my breathing.

I bought new drapes the other day that I am in love with.  I finished decorating a while ago, but something was definitely missing from our family room.  Then I found these beauties from Pier One...(Thanks Coley!)

 It was the finishing touch to our home :)

....That's about all the semi-interesting things I've got, folks.
