6 Month Anniversary!

OK, so you only get one 6 month anniversary. How many people celebrate their 2.5 years of marriage? So, Grant and I decided to make the most out of it :) First of all, I have a story to tell of when I was getting Grant's present (which was inception).
So on Thursday night I go to Target to buy the movie and I was on my way back from dropping something off from Brent and Carlissa's. It was about 9:30 at night (Grant was working), so I park the car, go in, get my movie with a card and some gum, check out, and head back out to my car. So, as I'm walking out of the store I see this little Asain guy and he's holding a box (it looks like a present or something) and this lady had her car pulled up along the curb right by the entrance. It was kind of raining, and he's trying to get her to roll down her window. I look at what's going on and automatically think of all those creepers that you hear about in email stories that are passed along, and I start booking it for my car (kind of out of superstition, fear, and instinct). HE STARTS RUNNING AFTER ME! I have a little Asain man with a "present" running after me! I get to my car door, open it, lock it, shut the door, and start to back out as soon as he gets there and is trying to talk to me and get me to roll down my window. Needless to say, I peeled out of the parking lot (literally) and got outta there! What on earth? I had no idea what he was doing but it seemed to be really CREEPY! Next time I go to a store alone at night I am DEFINITELY getting an escort to walk me out! So watch out--there are freaks even in Provo/Orem. The funny part of this story is when I told Grant about it he obviously made sure I was ok and held me and comforted me. As we were going to bed, he started laughing and said "I wonder how many people I chased down and scared on my mission." I looked at him and said "ya, but in a Target parking lot at 9:30 at night?" He replies "Ummm...maybe not at 9:30, but my companion and I would see someone and say 'HEY! We need to go teach them the gospel!'" haha this Asain did not look like a missionary, but it was a pretty funny comparison.
Anywho, our actual anniversary :) Grant got me a beautiful watch that I love and I got him the movie Inception. Can I say my husband is a little weasel? hahaha in a good way--I asked him earlier in the day what he wanted to do, and he just said "oh, I don't care, we'll just figure it out when you get home from work." I thought ok easy enough. He's a weasel. I get home and he asks how 5:30 sounds for Macaroni Grill and then we went to go see The King's Speech (PG-13 edition just came out!), and then we went and got frozen yogurt. He had it planned the whole time :) He really is such a thoughtful husband and it's been so fun being married to him.
I've just been called to be the 2nd counselor in the Relief Society Presidency in our married student ward. I must say, I'm a little nervous because I don't know very many girls and there are a lot more types of women in a married student ward than there is in a singles ward (meaning you have newly weds, mothers, graduates, undergraduates, etc.) I'm also very excited and it will be a great growing opportunity :) As long as I'm always trying to do what the Lord needs me to do, it will all be good.
Well folks, that's it for now!
P.S. Supposedly today is the end of the world. least Grant and I went to the temple :)


  1. HAHA that is cracking me up. I actually chased the missionaries down once, which I suppose makes a perfect triangle of stories. I was in Paris and so excited to see missionaries (it is France, after all, not too many mormons there!). My mom and I tried calling after them and speed walking and they practically started RUNNING. Guess they thought this young cute girl was a threat to their missionary-hood or something.... ;o) I just wanted to offer to buy them a pastry!

  2. And Eric and I are totally celebrating our 5.5 year anniversary. Do you think you have to get lame just because you've been married for awhile? and have kids? :o) you just have to work harder!

    "I'm hip. I'm with it. (doing the mechanical Macarena)..." ok I'm a goof, name that movie!

  3. hahahah oh Bekah. You just crack me up. I can totally see you just bookin it through the parking lot ha. Just don't go to Walmart out there by yourself at night... it's ultra creepy ha. Miss you! xoxo
