Its been a busy couple of weeks trying to get everything ready for our new apartment.  Packing has got to be the worst thing on the planet! However I am super excited to get everything in our new place and all set up.  A few weeks ago we stumbled across a furniture store that was closing and we found a really nice couch, (even the perfect color that I wanted) for a really great price! After that find I got really excited and had all these ideas for the living room.  So I went to target and found a bookcase.. an impossibly heavy bookcase I might add.  As I was lifting the box from the cart into my car, I hurt my shoulder.  It was a really bad pain!  The next day I ended up falling on our roller blading adventure (a whole nother story for another time) and hurt it even more.  The past two weeks it has just killed to lift anything at all and simple things like lifting my arm to put on my makup, rolling up the car window and typing are so painful. sleeping is also difficult because it just throbs.  Finally I went to a physical therapist to get it checked out.  It turns out I strained my rotator cuff and will be needing physical therapy for a little bit.  It is feeling slightly better now, but lifting is still out of the question.  Perfect timing since we are moving this weekend! I don't really mind just supervising :) I really need to get myself a better story as to how this injury happened.. haha

Oh Happy Day!

Andrew and I just got called to be primary teachers in our ward.  We have the 7-8 year old class.  The kids are hilarious!  There are about 6 boys and 1 girl.. so naturally its a bit of a rowdy group.  We have only taught once so far, but it is so fun!  During our first class we played a get to know you question game.  Their first question was, "how tall are you?"  and then there was a bunch of giggling because they are nearly as tall as me. 
One little boy asked andrew, "do you have a girlfriend?"  Andrew said, "no, I have a wife."  and the little boy repsonded, "well yeah, but do you have a girlfriend?"  lol!
That same little boy later on asked us how long we have been married.  We told him we've been married for almost a year and a half.  He got this shocked look on his face and said, "and you don't have a baby yet?? You need to have one tomorrow!" Haha I can't even count how many times I have been asked the whole when are you having a baby question, but I never thought I would be reprimanded by an 8 year old! I guess by Utah terms we are a little behind schedule..

So far thats all of the primary fun I have to share.  In other news, Andrew and I just found a nice apartment.  Not sure if we're switching wards or not yet.  I would love to stay since we just became teachers, but our new church would be extremely closer to where we will be living.  We are so excited to have our own place again!  It's not quite a house yet, but we we will get there eventually.  We are just so excited to be on our own! I have a ton of cute ideas on how to decorate and I cannot wait to get started.  Although decorating on a tight budget does take time.. its so fun to dream.  I also promised him that once we got in to our own place, I would be better about cooking dinner.  I like the idea of being a good cook, but when it comes down to actually cooking I just don't love it.  My idea of a great dinner is cereal, or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Its both easy and super delicious.  But, I know that practice makes perfect, and I will learn to make things eventually!!
