6 Months

I can not even believe that we have been married for six months. It seems like we have been married for ever but at the same time it feels like we just got married yesterday. 

This has definitely been the best 6 months of my life. Getting to spend every day with your best friend is seriously the best. But let's be honest, it has also been an adjustment. 

We have had to get used to each other's schedules and all of our little quirks. We have had to learn how the other person lives and when you come from two different families and homes it can be hard to adjust to how the other person operates. 

The first three months were definitely super exciting and everything was new but I think they were way harder than the second three months. Spencer was training all the time for his irnonman and I was working my tail off trying to get ready to go to Africa and then I was gone for three weeks. I feel like we were both trying to live our own lives and not really working together to combine our lives. 

After summer was over we got into more of a groove and everything has been much much better. I don't want to make it sound like the first three months were horrible but things have definitely gotten better over time. 

Every day I get more and more grateful for Spencer and how well he takes care of me. He is always doing little things for me and trying to make my life better and easier. He wakes up early every day to go to work and works hard all day so he can support me and our future family. After he comes home from working all day he is always asking me what he can do for me and what needs to be done around the house. He is such a good person and he makes me want to be better every day. I do not know how I got so lucky to have such a wonderful husband. 

These past six months have been so amazing and I can't believe it had already been that long.. Marriage is the best and I am so happy to be married to the perfect man for me.

Air Mattress

This picture isn't really "blog worthy" but it is something I want to always remember so I guess that makes it bog worthy to me. 

Last weekend we had a mini Harry Potter Marathon and part way through Spencer says "Lets blow up the air mattress in here so we can be closer to the tv." I was slightly skeptical at first but I went along with it. And it was the best idea ever! 

The air matress has been in our living room ever since and I don't see it leaving anytime soon. It makes watching tv and movies a little more exciting and honestly I have done a lot of homework while sitting there. So if anyone needs a little something fun in their house get an air mattress. I promise you won't regret it.

I had a long list of fall activites I wanted to do this month and Spencer was so nice to tag along with me for all my little ideas. One day I made him drive me over Guardsman's Pass so that we could look at the leaves. We were a little late and a lot of the leaves had already fallen but it still looked so beautiful.

Thank goodness for the mountains and that I have a husband that will make a spontaneous little stop in Park City for caramel apples.

Social Media

Ok, so this post has been written approximately 80 million times but I have to voice my own opinion on this. 

Social media is my favorite. I love instagram and snapchat has really been my jam right now but it has a bad side too. When I see people doing fun things I don't necessarily get jealous but I do have some negative feelings about it. I think I just feel left out. 

The other day I was at work just working like a busy little bee when I took a break to check snapchat. I was watching all my stories and resisting the urge to post another selfie of myself as a mouse when I came across one particular story that bothered me. It was some of my friends that had gone to lunch. It didn't look like they were having like a particularly good time or anything but it was just the fact that they were all together.

I was having a pretty decent day and then all the sudden I felt like a left out loser. I couldn't have even gone, I had work and school and homework and I had already been invited to one lunch that day that I couldn't go to but it still stung.

I couldn't figure out why I let that one little 10 second snapchat have such a big hold over my day? It made me feel a little depressed for the next few hours. Honestly this left out feeling happens more than I want to admit. I will be having a great day and then all the sudden it seems like my day sucks because someone is doing something seemingly more social and fun.

Now as I said before, I love snapchat and I don't really have a desire to get rid of it all together. I feel like the positives outweigh the negatives for me so I don't want to get rid of it but I definitely want to get rid of this feeling.  I don't really have any conclusion for this post. It is just something I have been thinking about. Has anyone else had this sort of issue with social media? And what do you do to combat it?
