I obviously disappeared from my blog for quite some time. I'm planning to change the blog address and name and such but until I get life under control and have time to do that...I'm still here. Well, I'm married now! Yay! I am officially Candace Williams and it's awesome. The wedding day went extremely well. Everything turned out incredible for the reception and it was just a fantastic day. Our honeymoon was needless to say...awesome! It was not easy to come home and get back to reality.
We moved into our apartment in Rexburg and we love it. It took us forever to finally get everything put away. Tender moment #1: no one gave us silverware and I gave all mine to D.I. so our first breakfast in our apartment was eaten with an ice cream scoop. We took turns eating our cereal with the scoop and made sure we got silverware that day. That same day we took a car full of gifts and a wallet full of gift cards and went shopping! In no time, we spent all of our gift cards and our car was full to the top of stuff to take back home with us.
We both started school a few days later and it was sooo hard to get motivated to do homework. I had absolutely zero desire to do it. I do however love my classes, they are awesome. I'm sure no one really cares about my classes so let me just talk about some other tender moments that have happened since we've been married.
Tender moment #2: I was buried in homework on Monday night...like majorly buried. Mathew was kind enough to make dinner for us AND do the dishes afterward. He wouldn't even let me near the dishes. I was extremely grateful.
Tender moment #3: Wednesday night I was again buried in homework. One of my assignments for my pattern making class was to trace and cut out a ton of slopers (sorry I'm too lazy to explain what these are). Mathew and I put in a movie and he traced and traced and traced and then cut and cut and cut. He pretty much spent the entire movie tracing and cutting for me. Love him.
Tender moment #4: Mathew didn't have class Thursday. I did. I had an hour+ break during classes and Mathew came and picked me up from class for lunch. I got in the car and he had packed a picnic basket full of food for lunch. It was adorable. He wouldn't tell me what was in it. I was so excited to park the car and watch him open up the basket and reveal all of the goodies. It was probably the cutest thing ever.
Tender moment #5: Friday night we were planning to go restaurant hopping. We started at Sonic for drinks and right after we ordered them, we decided to just go to Chili's (my favorite) for the whole meal: appetizers, main course, and even dessert. Well Mathew got hooooked on his Sonic drink, he'd never had one before, and the whole next day he was wishing the Sonic in Rexburg hadn't closed. Later, we went bowling with his brother and wife and then went to their house in Rigby for a movie. We were close enough to Idaho Falls that Mathew just couldn't resist driving the rest of the way to get a Sonic drink. We made it 5 minutes before they closed and we were both super excited. I'm considering this a tender moment because I thought it was hilarious that he was willing to drive to Idaho Falls just for a drink.
That's all the tender moments I have for now. I'll try to have the new blog up and running...someday.
