Out with the old... In with the NEW

Its time we say goodbye to this blog.
Somehow when I started this blog years ago (before I had my own gmail account) my mom's gmail got linked to it and its created much confusion. I've tried switching the email to my own so many times but it just won't work. 

I'm finally breaking down and starting a new blog and saying bye to carryingcathy forever.
I also found out that the song "Carrying Cathy" by Ben Folds is about how his girlfriend in high school named Cathy got pregnant and had an abortion.
But thats besides the point.

The point is that you need to come see me at my new blog


Its a work in progress and I'm not sure how I feel about the name yet but it will make my life just a little easier. And who doesn't want that.
I could say it will make me blog more but that will probably be a lie.

I'm Back!

So I'm not so good at this whole blogging thing but maybe I'll try and be better.
A lot has happened with us this past month.

1. We bought a house! (pics and post to come)
2. We just had our 2nd anniversary.

I'm sure more stuff has gone on but those two things are definitely the biggest.

For our anniversary we went camping for two days and drove down to see the Gila Valley Temple. 

It was so nice to have the weekend to relax and not have to worry about things that need fixing in the house (or doing homework in Ben's case). We just got to hang out together and have fun. 

We also saw this ginormous grasshopper... seriously the size of my hand

Ever since we've been married (and pretty much the whole time we were dating) Ben has had jobs where he works on Saturdays. This semester we worked it out so that Ben could quit his job and focus on school... all 19 credits of it. We LOVE getting to see each other on Saturdays even if we're shoveling dirt in the back yard or making the latest trip to Home Depot. 

I'm making it a goal to start blogging more. 
Maybe like once a week... we'll see though.

Tiffany Haynes Photography

My good friend Tiffany is hosting a giveaway on her photography blog. She is very talented and I always get jealous of how good her pictures turn out (I secretly wish she would have shot my wedding).

I would tell you to enter too but that would leave less chances for me to win.
Check her out

I would display one of her pictures but there are too many to choose from.... plus I don't really have permission to do that.

Look for yourself... just don't enter the giveaway.
I want to win so bad.

Surprise Vegas

This week for work I had to be in Kingman, AZ for 2 days.
Traveling overnight is something I really dislike about my job.

Luckily I have an awesome husband who drove up to stay with me the second night I was there (shhhh... top secret). When Ben got there at around 4pm he said "Let's go to Vegas"... so we did.

First we stopped at the Hoover Dam
to see the construction of the new bridge
which is awesome by the way.

We got onto the Vegas strip right around sundown
so all the lights were just coming on.
We drove down most of the strip to see everything before we parked since we knew it wouldn't be a long visit. 
We ate at a nice restaurant and ordered the cheapest things on the menu.

Then we went and watched the fountains at the Bellagio
before heading back Kingman.

It was a fun little trip. We both decided though that if we ever go to Vegas again we'd much rather be there during the day. There are too many people that like to drink too much alcohol there at night.

Undercover Karaoke

I'm not usually one to post videos I like on to my blog but I thought this was really funny.
Now all I want to do is listen to Jewel songs.

New England--- Highlight #5 and #6

#5--- the FOOD
Thanks to Abbie and Jake for letting us come on one of their dates to eat LOBSTER. 
And then we went out for ice cream.
New England knows its ice cream.
I had the black raspberry oreo... mmmmmm

I wish I would have gotten a picture of the huge roast beef sandwiches.
Those things were good.
I think we all spent the entire week filling up on meat and sugar.
It was glorious.

#6--- The company

I think Ben could spend all day with these kids and never run out of energy.
We had so much fun just playing.
Those kids couldn't get enough of Ben.

Being with family the whole week was such a blast.
I never wanted this trip to be over.
We should probably make this a yearly tradition.
I don't think anyone would have any complaints about that.
