Married Life

Kiel (Kyle) and I have been married now for a little over a month and there are a few things I have learned...
1. If you husband snores... you will get used to it. 
2. There always seems to be laundry. How does this happen? 
3. I see my husband less now that I am married. Why????? 
4. It is really hard to get home and do all the things you need to and cook dinner. 
5. I am a very organized person but now I have my own place with the hubby and my organization skills have taken a vacation! Ugh I need to get back on top of things! 

Just some things I have learned :)

First Fireworks of the Season

Tonight my hometown is having their fireworks which is the first fireworks I will have seen this July 4th season. I am pretty excited! 
I love fireworks, I used to be super scared of them because they were so loud but now I love them! 
The Hubs probably won't be able to come because he works till 9 :( 
which makes me really really sad but I have off July 4th and so does he! Yay! 
Sleeping in and a whole day off work hanging with my man! 

Yesterday we tried to go to the shooting range but the Hubs didn't think about the fact that the heat index was 103 hot!!!!! 
So we settled on half price sushi, Hobby Lobby and The Office! 
A much better date I think but the Mr. does love to go to the shooting range

These are my favorite fireworks, I am not sure what they are called but I always called them the Weeping Willow fireworks! 
Enjoy your weekend friend!

Cookies and Pinterest

So my job is pretty demanding sometimes, I talk with close to 100 representatives and all of their clients. One of our teams was really really busy yesterday and I wanted to do something nice for them so I made them cookies! 
I loved their reaction to me bringing in cookies, it's one of those things where the only thing you get in return is gratitude and really thats all you need because it makes you feel great! Just the fact that they said thank you makes me so happy! 

I also thought I would share some of my favorite things on Pinterest lately :) 
Here are my last five pins as of yesterday 
I love, love, love this outfit! Yes it is June but this outfit just makes me so happy! 
I just got married about a month ago so these anniversary ideas seemed like a good idea!
The Dating Divas

It's a Christmas Eve box that has a Christmas movie, new pj's , hot chocolate and other things!

The Giving Plate! Best idea ever! You take the plate to a party with you and then continue to pass the plate on.

As a future teacher I look for all kinds of fun things to do with students or at home!
This is puff paint that you dry on wax paper and then it sticks to windows!

Well there you go! I hope you enjoyed my Pinterest finds and do something nice for someone today and see how it makes you feel :) 

Deuteronomy 15:10
Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

The Office and Smoothies

The Hubby and I have started watching The Office from season 1. 
I am so excited! 
I have never seen the series but the Hubs has of course so
he wanted to start watching them with me.
Even though this isn't what I would consider awesome quality time
it works out pretty good because I get to sit next to a wonderful man :) 
In the show Michael Scott is the manager and well, my first thoughts of him was that he was a jerk. 
I know kind of mean even though it is a show but he is just a jerk sometimes and it makes me want to punch him but I love Pam, Jim and Dwight soooooo I am still going to watch the show.

Does Michael get any better??? Please give me some hope! 

I also decided to make smoothies last night which were amazing! I had never made smoothies before and my first two turned out great! (one for the hubs and one for me) 

The first month of marriage has been great, we got off to a weird start with our sleeping schedules but that is changing (thank goodness!) 
I love my husband and all that he does for me.

Honeymoon and Camping

This past weekend, my family and I went camping. 
It was a blast
We slept in hammocks and fished and swam in the lake
but I am so glad to be home 
My mom took this picture right as I woke up Saturday morning 
yup thats me in my red toms first thing in the morning

I had a great time! 

Honeymoon time! 
For our honeymoon we went to Riviera Maya in Mexico and stayed at the Now Sapphire resort which was amazing! It was all inclusive so we ate all we wanted and it was so much fun! 
The one day we decided to do something instead of lay by the pool we went to Tulum which is an ancient Mayan ruin by the beach.It was so amazing and beautiful. It was placed on the top of a cliff and when you looked out onto the ocean you could see for miles! I will never forget the breeze I felt up there, it made me want to fly. It was beautiful! Here are some pictures for your enjoyment :) 

Tulum and the ocean 

On the plane to Mexico, someone was especially excited :) 

Tulum in the background and some random ladys to the left 

Right when we got into Mexico, it was raining :( 

Sunrise one morning 

We went to this zoo and they had wild monkeys we could feed! It was so much fun!

As you can tell we had a lot of fun and we plan on going back one of these days, maybe for our first anniversary we can go somewhere more cold, like Alaska and do some hiking :) I can't wait to have more adventures with my Hubby!

5 Thoughts for Thursday

1. I do not like to go to bed alone! Mr. Hobbs likes to stay up late and read (his new obsession in Game of Thrones) and watch YouTube videos.) I do not like this habit...
2. Blueberry picking is so much fun! This morning before work, my mom, gram, Mr.Hobbs and myself went Blueberry picking at a local farm. One step closer to nature and I loved it. Next week I may go and pick Black Raspberry's! 
3. This weekend the family is going camping and I am so excited! S'mores and corn on the cob with the fam. it is going to be amazing. I might even try this... 
Starburst over a campfire!

4. Box springs suck. Yes they do. When we got back from the honeymoon Mr. Hobbs couldn't sleep because I moved around so we put the bed in the living room and slept in there for about a week and it was a blast. In the end we figured out one of the boards on our box spring was broken. so I  I mean we get to get a new bed :) 
5. Mr. Hobbs asked me this morning who I wanted to see in concert...I have no idea! 
Any suggestions? 

Much love, 
Mrs. Hobbs!

Rehearsal Dinner

May 25, 2013
After the rehearsal at Ms. Gilmores Carriage House we were off to the rehearsal dinner 
at my church...well actually it was at a bed and breakfast that my church owns called
the Elfindale Mansion. 
The food was awesome, we had BBQ and a guy that my grandpa knows smoked all the meet for us and Mr. Hobbs mom and aunts (there are like 5 of them :) make all of the other parts of dinner. 
It was delicious! 

Here are some pictures of the dinner and my family

A Late Happy Father Day

Happy Late Father Day to my Daddy! 
My family and I did get to eat lunch with my dad yesterday but he pulled a 12 hour day 
at his job so it was a long day for him. 
I want to thank my dad for taking me on fishing trips, going antiquing with me and just having a good time together. 
The picture below is a picture of the first time he saw me in my wedding dress three weeks ago and it is one of my favorite pictures so Happy Father Day Dad!

Organized...or Not

The people that know me, know that I am organized.
You should see my planner for school!
Since the Mr. and I have gotten back from the honeymoon I have not been organized..
is that bad? 
I can't decide. 
The apartment is a mess :( but being back I just want to spend time with my hubby and
relax which I think is a good thing. 
I figure one day soon my organization skills will kick back in 
and I will stay up till midnight cleaning.
We will see

2 Weeks

so it has been two weeks of marriage, 
I love it! 
It just feels so right and natural.
It really is a God thing! 
Things have been going great and I am so excited Mr. Hobbs got a new shift so I can see him at night. 
His shift now, he gets home at midnight, with his new shift he will get home at 9! 
Trust me its a lot better. 
Life is good
Our church put us in their bulletin as the Newest Married Couple, 
it was really sweet of them.

Pictures of the Wedding

Today I thought I would put up some of the pictures from the wedding. 
Our photographer was Tamara Thomas and she is on Facebook @ TamaraThomasPhotography
She did an amazing job and I am so grateful to call her a friend also. 
So here is my bridesmaids from left to right, Megan, Jess, Britt, Becky and  my sister Makena on  the right! 

All of the girls had different dresses and so we took a picture of our shoes and dresses (well the bottom of them) 

Each bridesmaid wrote me a letter to open during the day of the wedding, it was Amazing and so special! 

Here was our first kiss as husband and wife!

Love this one! 

The back of my dress and my hair and veil

this is probably one of my favorite photos because of Kiel's best man Nathan on the right. 

My gram made this quilt for Kiel and myself, it is so beautiful 

swing and a close up shot 

This was a good picture of me so I wanted to add it 

So there you go ladies and gentleman! It was an amazing wedding and I will probably have more pictures to come!
