I'm moving!!!

My blog has moved. Well, it has done more than move, it has changed. I decided that since I'm not Katie Haycock anymore, my blog should probably change too. Plus, Moose was feeling a little left out of the whole blog thing, so we have a new blog - check it out!!!

It will be funny in a few months, but for now........grrr

This is what we woke up to on Friday morning:

So annoying. We didn't even have cool tires or rims on the truck - just stock. It was parked (I should say it IS parked, since it's not going anywhere) right in front of our house. To further annoy us, the insurance adjuster can't come out to look at it until Monday, so we have to look like the trashy people in the neighborhood who leave cars in the yard on cinder blocks. Then, once the adjuster comes to look at it, we have to pay a $500 deductible before the insurance will pay to replace anything. Then, since we can't have it towed anywhere, we have to go someplace, buy the rims and tires, have the tires put on the rims, bring them back to our house, put them on ourselves, and THEN go to a place to get them balaned and adjusted. Why do stupid people steal stuff? GRRRRR.....

Memorial Day

Okay, so my "picture a day" idea bit the dust, but here's an update anyway. Last weekend, for Memorial Day, we went camping with Kyle's parents, his sister Kami, and her roommate Nadia. We went about 2 hours north of Vegas to a place called Cathedral Gorge just outside of the thriving metropolis of Panaca, Nevada. For those of you who MAY not be familiar with Panaca, we were about 90 miles west of Cedar City, UT. Although it rained quite a bit, we still had a great time. The weather was kind enough to cooperate every time that we needed to cook/eat a meal and when we went on a couple small hikes. Other than that, we played a lot of games and stayed close to the campfire. It was really nice to get out of town for a few days and forget about real life. Here are some pictures of our adventure:

In other news, finals start tomorrow, school gets out on Wednesday, I leave for the Grad Night Trip to Disneyland on Thursday, Graduation is on Monday, I have a few days off and then start teaching Summer School! In addition, I'm teaching piano lessons on the side and trying to pick up a few days of substitute teaching at year-round elementary schools during the summer. Life is busy and great!

Papers, papers, papers

Tommorow is my last day of class at UNLV for the semester - HOORAY!!! Actually, it will be my last day at UNLV for a while. I'm not really liking my program and just can't justify so many more student loans for something that I hate and don't really plan on using. Anyhoo, I'm pretty excited to get my life back. I didn't realize how much work 8 credits a semester would be on top of a full time job, but it was really burdensome. Plus not having the dread of going to class in the evening is going to be fabulous. Sadly, before I can be officially done with it, I have 3 more papers to write tonight - BOO! I guess I should go write them instead of wasting more time on the internet................

A picture a day

I've been avoiding blogging because I feel too overwhelmed with writing about everything that's happened since my last post. My solution: don't do it. I'm just going to start fresh. My new resolution is to post at least one picture with a short narrative comment every day. If nothing eventful happened that day, I'll just post an old picture for fun. Today, enjoy a few more of my wedding photos!

Back to Reality

Well, a lot has happened since my last post. In a nutshell, our wedding and honeymoon were fabulous. Everything went perfectly and we were so happy with it all. We also moved into a new house. It's a really great little house and it is so fun to set up with all of our new stuff. We've been so busy over the last 4 weeks that we're not all the way unpacked yet, but we're making good progress. Our internet is hooked up now, so I can get back into the routine of blogging. We don't have all of the pictures of the wedding back yet, but here are a few that we do have. If you were there and you took some pictures, can you please email them to me so that I can have them? Thanks! I'll post more pictures soon!

SPICE up your life

This weekend Ashley and I went to the SPICE GIRLS reunion tour. It was one of the BEST concerts I have ever been to - and I've been to a lot of concerts. They sounded great, looked great, and were highly entertaining. Besides the SPICE GIRLS themselves, the best part of the night is that we were sitting 20 feet away from David Beckham the ENTIRE time!!!! He was in a luxury box right behind us. He sat out on the edge right next to the crowd and we could see him the whole time. Unfortunately, they wouldn't let me take my camera in there, so all I have is this picture of Ashley and I in the car on the way there and this wonderful picture of David Beckham so that you can imagine sitting next to him too.

We're engaged!!!!!

Yeah!!! Although I knew he was going to propose soon, I had no idea that it would be yesterday. Moose surprised me at my apartment when I got home from school. He was there on one knee waiting for me to get home with the ring and some gorgeous flowers. Aren't we so cute????

New hair, again

It's really hard to take a good picture of yourself. It looks a little bit darker in the picture than it does in real life. What do you think?
