Dave the Rebel!

As a many of you know Dave is about to graduate from BYU, well it is safe to say that he is suffering from a case of "senior-itis". He has being doing small things here and there as a result of this. For example, occasionally missing classes to go hunting, being more willing to go out and play at night as opposed to studying, but by far the most visible way of rebelling he has found is to grow facial hair! The funny thing is only at BYU would this even matter, but apparently it does. It is funny because he shouldn't be allowed to take any tests or anything, but it hasn't been a problem. He took a test yesterday and no one said anything! I personally think that the girls in the testing center like his ruggedly handsome, mountain-man looks! The best part of all of this is the fact that I don't love facial hair. I think this must stem from the fact that growing up my brothers would always grow these big funky goatee's that I never particularly loved. So what do you think of facial hair, love it or hate it?

My Wonderful Husband

Dave recently commented on how this blog started out as "Our Family" blog and has turned into my blog. I thought that this was only fair seeing as how I am the only one who posts on it, but he may have a point. In all fairness, I guess lately I haven't posted a lot on him lately. So, now I am making up for it. While blog hopping a while ago, I saw this on a blog and really liked it:

What is his name? David Brent Garlick

How long have you been together? We started dating the fall of 2001
Who eats more? Definitely Dave, thank goodness!

Who said I love you first? I wrote it first in a letter to him as he was leaving on his mission, but he was the first to actually say it out loud.

Who is taller? Dave, definitely Dave

Who sings better? Dave, I am completely tone deaf!

Who is smarter? Probably Dave, I am better with words, but he is better with math

Whose temper is worse? This one is hard, he would probably say me.

Who does laundry? I do our laundry, but he does help by washing his hunting clothes.

Who pays bills? He does!

Who mows the lawn? Dave does!

Who cooks dinner? I do!

Who is more stubborn? I am pretty sure that Dave would say me.

Who asked who out? Technically, I asked him out, because I asked him to a dance in high school. But, when we really started dating he asked me out by asking to come horse back riding with me.

Who kissed who first? He kissed me after going to see The Christmas Carol with his family. I remember being really surprised he kissed me because he had a really bad cold at the time.

Who wears the pants in the family? I think he would say me, but I am pretty sure it is him. I guess it depends on the situation.
Who is the most kind, playful, loving, thoughtful, adventurous, motivated, smart, hard-working, handsome husband I could possibly dream of? Dave!

Shayla Tagged Me, I'm It

I'm it, here are the rules:
1- You have to right down 6 factoids about yourself
2- You have to tag 6 more people and comment in their blogs to tell them that they were tagged

Here I go.....

1- I love to Read! I am sure that it wouldn't be that hard to figure out by reading my blog. I am kind of weird about it though, if I start reading a book and really enjoy it, I can't stop reading. Things like eating and sleeping don't really matter until the book is finished. I guess you could say I get kind of obsessive about it. Another thing that I tend to do is, if I really liked the book I will re-read it as soon as I finish it.

2- I love to run. This has been an acquired love, it definitely did not come naturally. I have always wanted to be a runner, and never thought I could be one, until I met my good friend Marilyn Knuth, she is my inspiration. She is the one who got me into it, and whenever I need a little extra motivation I just talk to her and I am motivated again. Thanks Marilyn!

3- Dave and I are going to be moving out of Utah for dental school. I am really torn on this one. There is a part of me that is thrilled to death to be moving away, to have it be just Dave and I and have both of our families far away. The other part of me is scared to death. I am really close to my family, and I can't imagine having kids and being far from the people I am closest to.

4- I am becoming addicted to blogging. I guess there are worse things to be addicted to, but still sometimes it is really bad. I have to admit that I am loving the fact that it is getting me in touch with people I haven't seen or talked to since high school.

5- I love being active and outside. I have always liked to be active and do stuff outdoors but Dave has really helped me on this one. All you need to do is check out his blog and you will see that he is kind of obsessed. Since marrying Dave, I have had the opportunity to take up some hobbies that I had never really tried before, and perfect the ones that I hadn't done as much, such as: rock climbing, hiking, fly-fishing, float tubing, ice fishing, (see a fishing theme?) camping, back packing, snowboarding, skiing, running, base ball, football, and soccer.

6- I love traveling. I have had the opportunity to do a fair amount of traveling and I absolutely love it. I am lucky enough to have a Mom who loves to travel and thankfully likes to take me with her. Last year I had the opportunity to go to Great Britain with my Mom, Grandma, and Ashley. It really was the trip of a life time. We saw England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland (on St. Patricks Day), and France. Traveling is one of those interesting things, at least for me, the more I do it, the more I want to do it. (If that makes sense) Like I said, I am lucky that my Mom like to take me along.

I am tagging

Lisa, Becca, Becky, Summer, Ashley, and Karleigh

New York City

My New York Trip was absolutly wonderful, exactly the break that I needed so bad, (not that we rested or relaxed much.) Here are some the highlights from my trip. My Mom and I in Rockafeller Plaza Here I am seriously wind blown walking across the Brooklyn Bridge
Ashley and I on the Brooklyn Side of the Brooklyn Bridge
(You can kind of see the sign above us)
Ashley and my Mom sporting beautiful nails after a manicure
Ash and I in front of a T-Rex at the Museum of Natural History
(The movie The Night in the Museum was based on this museum)

A Great Movie!

This last weekend I went with my Mom and Ashley to see the movie Dan in Real Life, and absolutely loved it! I feel like I haven't see a "good clean" movie in a long time. This one was great because it was really funny, clean, and I think is the kind of thing pretty much everyone would enjoy. Granted, I did go with just girls, and it was a romantic comedy, but I don't care who you are, Steve Carell is just funny! So, I am always a little paranoid about recommending movies to anyone in case they won't like it, but I am willing to go out on a limb on this one and say that everyone should see it because it is great!
