Cub Scouts/Blue and Gold/What Were We Thinking

Last night was the Cub Scouts' Blue and Gold Banquet. We were assigned to bring enough rice for sixty people. Well, ok. How do you figure that out? Plus we wanted half white rice and half ham fried rice. Sounds simple, right? No. Not at all. We figured we should make 1/2 a cup of rice per person, so thirty cups of rice. That is a lot more rice than it sounds like. We ended up with five of our largest bowls full of rice, two white rice and three ham fried rice. I don't know how many batches I ended up cooking, because our biggest pot only made five cups at a time, then I had all our small ones going as well. It was a bit crazy in our tiny kitchen for a while. Plus, all that rice is extremely heavy, and so are the pans. We ended up bringing three of the five bowls home. And two of those were the plain stuff. Rice, anyone?

One Half of One Year

Well, it's official. It has been half a year since we got married. Woot! Last night Chris and I went to Maddox in Perry for a birthday dinner for Tyler, my brother-in-law. It was actually really good. Not that it isn't, it just hasn't been all the best the past few times I have been. Last night I got the grilled chicken, and it was really yummy. The mashed potatoes were amazing! Oh, I love going out to eat. What fun.

Six Months

This Thursday is February 21, 2008. On that day, Chris and I will have been married for six whole months!! It seems like there could be no way it has been that long, but it also seems like we have been married forever. Lately we have been looking at houses around where we live, but the search has been less than encouraging. The lease for our apartment doesn't expire until August, so at least we have some time to look around. We would love to be in our own house by the end of the summer. Our apartment is way too small for us to do all the things we want to do here.
Things are going well for Chris and I. Chris is a mechanical design engineer for Eimco and I am finishing my degree in Interior Design and Business from the Utah State Extension in Salt Lake. I will be graduating at the end of the semester, and I am so much more excited than I could ever imagine. Other stuff. . . Chris is the Webelos leader in our ward. Unfortunately, he is the ONLY Webelos leader, so I have become the other Webelos leader by default. Today we took all eight boys to the Clark Planetarium and wanted to tear our hair out the entire time. Apparently, visiting a museum is the only way to get the Science Belt Loop. Luckily, everything went pretty well and we didn't have any major problems. My calling is a Sunday School teacher for the twelve-year-olds in the ward. I have a team teacher, which is very nice, since I only teach every other week.
Other than that, our lives are pretty normal. Chris goes to work every day, I stay home and do school and stuff all day. Then Chris gets home and we just hang out and eat dinner. Yep. That's it.
