Ocean and Sky

         Although Katie and I haven't had time to share, we spent the weekend before last on a field of blue, watching Boise State play their first home game of the season. Or I guess I should say our, since we're part of the school and all. We walked from our lovely apartment in Downtown Boise. The stadium is pretty brilliant, smaller than most, but very a good way. Blue turf, under a blue sky, nestled by a beautiful blue river. The walk was fun and the best part is..we took pictures! Nevermind, now that I'm looking through them, I guess we didn't take any of the walk.

        As we neared closer to the stadium, there were crowds of people, all in blue and orange, of course. Most were sitting in chairs underneath their Boise State canopies to keep shielded from the sun. And most of them were surrounded by family, which made me think about my family, including Katie's family, who are also my family. But even more than that, it made me think about my little family, Katie, Jimi, and I, and where I want to be in the future. When I finally graduate that is. And honestly, I don't know if I want to live in a big city or a small town. I don't know if I want to end up close to the ocean or surrounded by rivers and lakes. I don't know if I am going to make a lot of money or just enough to get by. Maybe I'll find myself in a big house surrounded by acres of green grass or maybe just in a small comfortable home.

The things I do know are:

One. I want to be with Katie, my wonderful wifey. Two. I want to have a little Gabe slash Katie running around. And three. I want little Jimi to be able to meet that little Gabe slash Katie. Oh yeah, and I want to be finished with school. I think with those few things, that wherever I'm at, I'll be able to call it home.

         So during all of that time of thinking, Katie and I managed to get through the crowds of people, into the stadium, and seated in the student section, which were field-level seats by the way. I was excited. I think Katie was too. She seemed to be anyway. The music was loud, the fans were loud..I was loud. It was kind of a rush really. Everyone was eager to see how Southwick, the new quarterback, was going to compare to the legendary Kellen Moore. He didn't really, but not many do. The game was still great. And we won. By a lot. We left at the end of the third quarter, because Katie and I were both sunburned. If we would've stayed, it could've been bad. Just for our skin but still. We had a nice walk home and when we got inside, we complimented each others tan lines. "Katie, what a nice mask you have. Your sunglasses tan makes you look like a superhero."

Destination: Beautiful

It was a while ago when I wrote this letter to my wifey and I still stand by it one-hundred percent.

Dear Wifey:

You don't think you are the smartest person, but you still give me answers to almost every question I ask. You are the smartest person I know. My own little google. You don't think you are the cutest girl in the world, but we have a mirror in our house. I don't understand why you can't see what I see. You are the most beautiful girl in the whole wide world. My oh, My oh, My Boooo. You don't think you are the best friend anyone could ever have, even though you try to be there for all of your friends at the same time. I'm YOUR best friend so who do you think mine is? You are the best friend anyone could ever have and my beyond bestie. You don't want to stand on your tippy toes, because you are afraid you might fall. You talk about how clumsy you are, but I never see you fall. And every day, you stand a little taller. You don't want to crinkle your nose, because your Aunt Candyce says it will cause wrinkles soon. She's probably right, but eventually we will all have wrinkles, and I think it's cute when you stand on your tippy toes and crinkle your nose. You are the bestest. Te amo, chica.

From Husband.

        Tonight, Katie and I skipped out on homework for a little while to spend some time together. After getting all cute for each other, we grabbed the longboards and rolled out. Destination: Fanci Freez. And the best part. Brace yourself. Katie curled her hair. This woman has no idea how hot she is. I'm glad too, because if she did, I would've never had a chance. I still had to work pretty hard, but I must've done a few good things in this life of mine.
        Right before arriving at Fanci Freez, I led us straight through a huge puddle for a nice evening shower. Bad call on my part, but we made it safely...with the new camera, which I was extremely worried about. I guess I should have more trust in Katie's riding ability. She's pretty good on a board, you know? Nope, you don't. But she is. And I'm not saying that because she's sitting next to me, with her laptop in her lap...looking beautiful. With her newly did hair that is so perfectly curled.
         It has only been three years and so much has changed, but there are a few things that haven't.  My wifey is still the smartest person I know, my own little google. She is still the most beautiful girl in the whole wide world. She is still the bestest friend that I could ever have. She still stands a little taller everyday. No trips, no scratches. She still crinkles her nose, and so far, is wrinkle-free. And in the midst of mounds of homework, I still manage to sneak a kiss. Or two. Or three.

And that's why I love her.

A Bit of a New Look

There are a few new things to this little blog, two that I am especially excited about.  First off, I am no longer the lone writer of this blog, Gabriel has joined the team. YAY! Gabe used to have his very own blog but it has kind of turned into a black hole and everything just disappeared.  We decided it might be fun to take turns writing on this Blog about our life, because then you get a chance to hear about it from both of our perspectives.  Also, you guys will begin to notice that Gabe and I have very different writing styles. Mostly, Gabe's, who is very proper and actually uses punctuations. Whereas mine is more a mass of words with a few periods thrown in the mix. Ha. Second, Gabe and I purchased a fancy new camera with a little bit of student loan money, its a Cannon Rebel T2i.  I've been wanting one for a while now, because I've gotten into photography in the last year or so. Hopefully the quality of the pictures on here begin to look a little nicer as I learn our new camera. Well, I hope everyone loves the new changes. It's Gabe's turn to write next, so hopefully you will be hearing from him soon.

The Witching Hour

When I was in high school, my dad would always justify why I had a curfew with, "Nothing good ever happens after 12 o-clock." Now, I'm not saying my dad was wrong, but now that I am grown up and married, I have come to appreciate the late hour a little bit more. You see, Gabe doesn't get off work till 12 am and with all the hussle and bussle of our daily lives, we don't get to have a lot of 'us' time. But this whole summer, we have made 12 o-clock our time. We usually take little Jim for a walk, sip on cream soda, or just sit and talk, but it's just been so nice. Even though Gabe and I live right smack dab in the middle of Downtown Boise, which I love by the way. On week nights it's a very quiet, beautiful city. Add the summer night warmth and you've got yourself a prefect evening, or more accurately, midnight. Now that school has started, and to my dismay, the weather has already started to get cooler, I'm going to really miss our midnight walks and talks over yummy beverages. But one thing I can tell you that these nights have reassured me of..guys, I have a pretty awesome, determined, and loving husband.
