Guess What

And she loves him back.

But how could I resist?

Plus, he got a 100% on his stats test today.
Smarty pants.

A long time ago, Scott introduced me to these commercials. And I've loved them ever since. My favorite ones are below for your viewing pleasure.

And if you only watch one, please let it be this one:

Snobby Finance Guys

I’m a senior, technically. I don’t graduate until December, but this is considered the first semester of my senior year. As such, I’m in some business classes that comprise the famous “Finance Core”. My professors are very specialized finance guys, not just general business guys because the material is a little more specific. I took a finance class last year called Financial Management. For short, we called it FI-nance. This year, I have a class called Advanced Financial Management. So can someone explain why suddenly it’s call fi-NANCE? Do my professors feel that much more sophisticated just because we threw the word Advanced into the title of the course?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Isn't Valentine's Day wonderful? Scott and I had the most fabulous time. Scott had drill weekend the week before the big day, so we decided to celebrate a little early. I met him in Salt Lake on Saturday night and we went to an amazing dinner at Christopher's Seafood and Steak House. It was so delicious. I'd go back just for the shrimp and lobster dip.

This week, I wasn't expecting anything - we had already celebrated. But Scott surprised me with a few things:

On Valentine's morning I woke up to the bathroom mirror looking like this:
You can't tell from the picture, but he wrote the lyrics to one of my favorite songs - one from our wedding video. It's "Out of My League" by Stephen Speaks.
It's her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away
and the feeling that I'm falling further in love
makes me shiver but in a good way.
All the times I have sat and stared
as she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair
and she purses her lips, bats her eyes as she plays,
with me sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say
'cause I love her with all that I am!
And my voice shakes along with my hands.
'cause she’s all that I see and she’s all that I need
and I'm out of my league once again.

Cute husband.

But that wasn't all. On his way home from work, Scott picked up the most beautiful arrangement of flowers.
Scott had to go back to work on Saturday night. While he was working, I made him an apple pie. I've never made apple pie before - only berry pie. It turned out okay - except I don't have a rolling pin so the top crust was a little thick.
So, when Scott got back from work at 9:30 we had a perfect Valentine's dinner - Little Caesar's pizza and homemade apple pie!

Thanks for everything, Lovey. I love you!

Pen Bandit

A few weeks ago, I was chatting with a lady in my ward. We were talking about school, work, Scott, etc. She asked me if there were any things I had learned about Scott since we'd been married that surprised me. I couldn't think of any then, but due to recent pilfering I thought a blog post was in order.

Scott is a pen thief.

Months ago, my boss Kyle introduced me to the most fabulous pen for lefties. It is the Zebra Ball Point F-301.

It sounds special...because it is special. It never smudges which means at the end of the day my hand isn't covered in ink. For some reason, it's just fabulous for lefties. Since Scott and I are both left-handed I find that all my pens disappear and end up in Scott's backback, scripture case, pockets....

That boy has sticky fingers!
