Fish killer

So i thought it would be fun to have fish......fake fish that is....... (the real ones smell)!
I thought to myself .......
Digital Fish!
What could be better then 10 cute black fish that swim around in a tank that you don't even have to clean!!
Could life get any better?
Apparently i killed these fish cuz they are am i to ever have children if i cant keep digital fish alive?
Cory kept telling me that if i feed them to much (aka click on the screen 10 thousand times cuz cool black appear) They would die!!
I didn't think he was serious!
Now my blog is Fish-less :(

Hallmark card 101

As we were going through our wedding cards in Cancun (PS thanks Cody and Sara for grabbing those for us before we left!! ) We came across this card that changed my way of looking at marriage! FYI I'm NOT a card person....some people spend up to five dollars on a card and just sign the bottom! Homemade cards or self written cards are different....Props to Hallmark for catching my attention!
How to make a beautiful life together
Reflections on marriage for the bride and groom
Let love be your shelter,
The world is noisy
and confusing at times,
that is a haven,
a peaceful place where you can
listen to your hearts and savor
the comfortable closeness
you share.
No matter how busy
your days may be,
MAKE TIME for yourselves.
Hold hands. Unwind.
Surprise each other.
Find little chances every day
to show you're grateful to be partners,
to be friends, to be married.
Life is not perfect.
but each time
you meet life's challenges together,
you will grow wiser, stronger,
and surer of your love.
cherish your yesterdays.
They are irreplaceable souvenirs
of your journey through life.
that will bring smiles and sighs
whenever you look back..
(look back often)
Look forward, too.
Dream together. Plan together.
Believe in your tomorrows,
because tomorrows
are what forever is made of.
To make love last,
put each other first.
That is the way to make a
beautiful life together.

OuR hOuSe

Our house is ALMOST done!! These pictures were taken a few weeks ago, we now have cabinets, all the appliances in, and....everything! We are just waiting for the carpet to go in (that may have gone in today) and this Friday is the final inspection! So if we pass we will be rollin in this Saturday! I cant believe how blessed we are! Cory's dad is a general contractor and decided to build two homes up in alpine, one house is up for sell and the other is a rental!! We will be renting out the basement and some lucky person will set up camp upstairs! Plus we both got jobs right there in alpine and will be working less then a mile from home!!
We have had a BLAST living with his parents...seriously! They are awesome, but it will be fun to play house all by ourselves!
Our first big purchases: Washer and dryer.......and Fridge!
The view from the hallway by the kitchen.... that's our front door! Cory welcoming in our guests!
The beautiful house

Labor day- Bear lake!!

I think.... I know I'm going to be sad when we have kids and we cant just get up and decide to go to bear lake for the night! We knew we wanted to go camping for labor day but didn't really have any plans on where to go or what we were doing! So as i was talking to Kilee she told me that they were going to bear lake and invited us to camp on the lawn of the cabin!!! That's exactly what we did! Sure there were beds for us to sleep in, inside the cabin but that wouldn't be very fun! So we just drove up for the night and played on the boats in the morning!! It was so fun! Thanks Ki and Ty for letting us come play!
Cory Learned to wake surf!! He got up and did awesome, even let go of the rope a few times!
Pro wake boarder.....Jumped the wake......360......toe touch......Just kidding! Sadly that was my first wake board of the season because of finishing school and the wedding we didn't really have time to go boating!! I was pretty sore the next few days!

Ki and Ty holding on for dear life!
I sure love this man!
It was about 12:30am when we got the tent up! Good thing Cory had his head lamp!!! ha ha

What we do in our spare time!

........Its pretty was about 11pm and we were bored, so naturally we grabbed the goggles and the picnic blanket, jumped on the bikes and headed down to Burgess park to star gaze!!!
Here's Cory...packed up and ready to ride!
Notice the ponytail....ha ha I was playing with his hair about thirty minutes before this picture and with him not knowing, i put that in!!! The best part of it, he had no idea!! It was not till after dinner that i finally couldn't keep a straight face anymore and busted up laughing!
-My First home cooked meal-
What a well balanced meal!
Micah, Sean and Cory SCRAPED their plates clean!! Not a big deal


Who: Cory and Katie McArthur!!
Where: Dreams Resort Cancun, Mexico!!!
When: Aug 15Th-21st
In deciding where we were going to go on our honeymoon, we had thought of Hawaii, Paris.....jk i wish!! But i had never been to Cancun, and Cory had! He had nothing but good things to say about the AMAZINGLY BLUE WATER.....and he was right!!!
Here we have a lifeguard station.....maybe he was on his lunch break? ha ha
The hotel was all inclusive so we really only spent about 100 dollars besides the hotel, that was for food in the airports and snorkeling!! We were the only ones on the tour so the little swimming man...i don't remember his name, was awesome and took us to the coolest spots!!
We saw......
1-Sea Turtle
5-Mantras!... spelling?
93847384734- Sweet Fish!
We wanted to take a picture by the name of the hotel so this huge group stood back so we could get a good one.....little did they know now they are apart of our history! I love the little man with his hands on his hips, he looks like he was in charge!
At all inclusive hotels they even have a few restaurants that are included in the price, This one we ate at all most every night!! It was really good! The little Mexican workers loved to tease us and pretend they put alcohol in our drinks....One time (half way through) Cory's drink he leans over to me to have me taste it to see if it tasted weird.... sure enough it burned going down!!! I like how Cory waited till he was half way through!! ha ha jk babe!
If this would have fit in my would have been mine! I love how unique it is!
Our Beach! Can you believe this sand!!

On our way home we had a connecting flight from Houston to SLC..... Well there was a HUGE thunderstorm over Houston and we didn't have enough fuel to wait for it to pass so we flew over to the closest airport to refuel and wait for the storm to clear! When we finally got back to Houston we had missed our flight by 25 mins! The next flight was at 7am, we didn't see any need to get a hotel so we slept in the airport! Shockingly enough those airport chairs are not as comfortable as they look..;)
This is us pretending to sleep....we tried to pull an all-nighter but i could only win and sudoku so much!!! ha ha
