Benefits of being married.. from a married woman :)

I found this on pinterest but I saw that it was missing a few so I edited it to fit our life. Enjoy!

1. You’ll have a live-in spider killer.
2. Someone will always be around to reach the top shelves in the kitchen.
3. You’ll live longer; studies have shown married couples live longer.
4. You’ll always get a Valentine’s Day present… and an anniversary present!
5 Your husband is like a built-in toe warmer waiting on the other side of the bed.
6. You will always have someone to share your deepest secrets with.
7. You’ll have a dishes-doing partner… and a dance partner.
8. There’s always someone to wake up if you have a creepy dream.
9. You’ll have someone to support you in all things.
10. Having someone there to bring you soup when you’re sick.
11. Starting a family with the man you adore.
12. Having a husband is like having a handyman on-call 24-hours a day.
13. Gaining a whole extra family that you’ll love and who will love you.
14. Knowing that someone always has your back.
15. You’ll have a Sunday morning newspaper-reading partner.
16. He’ll be your partner in crime.
17. It’s nice having someone who knows you as well as you know yourself.
18. Two heads are better than one, especially when you’re coming up with excuses for staying home from work, getting out of a prior obligation, etc.
19. You always have a date for Saturday night.
20. Someone is always there to share laughs with.
21. Looking forward to your husband walking in at the end of the day.
22. You’ll have someone to try new recipes on… and someone to tell you how your butt looks in those jeans!
These are the ones I added:
23. Someone who knows what your thinking without you having to say it.
24. Someone to make you laugh your problems away.
25. Someone who does the dishes while your gone, just to see you smile.
26. Someone who makes you blush, all the time.
27. He still gives you butterflies when he asks to take you out. 
28. He stays awake to make sure your safe. 
29. Calls you when he is with his friends to tell you he misses and loves you.
30. Gets excited with you over stupid girl things, because he knows it makes you happy.
31. Encourages you to follow your dreams and listen  to the promptings you receive.
32. Someone to kneel down with every morning and night.
33. Someone to make you want to be better each day.
34. The forever love of your life and ultimate best friend.
35. Someone who can annoy you like crazy and you still love them more than words can describe. 
36. You want to live to make them happy. 
I will continue to add to this list. But those are a few reasons I love my sweet husband


So Craig and I have some big news!... No we are not pregnant :) gotcha though huh?? But both of us have sisters pregnant with their first babies due within a month of each other and we are so excited for the both of them! We do have big news though, even though everyone following our blog already knows but moving to Colorado is big and excited news for us:) we have a less than two months until we are officially out of Tucson forever! Not that we won't miss living close to my family and being able to drive a few hours to see them. But we are ready for new and excited adventures and looking forward to starting them soon!
     Since it has been really been  a while since I updated, Craig and I have callings in our ward. He is the Secretary in the Elder's Quarm Presidency and I started out teaching the CTR 8 class and then was released ( to my relief:).. I was starting to get stressed out like crazy... haha  by the way, praying to be released from a stressful calling does not guarantee you no more callings or a less stressful one... just in case you were wondering! I than promptly was called into the Primary Presidency. No words! But I have grown to love my calling and the wonderful women that I serve with. I have grown, gotten braver, stronger, a little more organized and I will miss being in Primary.
Good-bye Tucson!
    Craig and I both work for a organization called United Cerebral Palsy Association of Southern Arizona, its a respite, home care and habilitation provider type thing. We enjoy it a lot, and we have made some awesome friends while doing this work.
Hello Beautiful Colorado!
      We just finished another semester of college and hopefully we can start CSU in the next year or so, we have to prove that we are planning on staying in Colorado in order to not have to pay out of state tuition ( which is like double in state). Craig is going for his bachelor's in Sports Medicine, with a Masters and eventually a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. I am going for my bachelor's in Nutrition and or Exercise Science, and my Master's and possibly my doctorate in Occupational Therapy. We one day hope to open a practice together, mostly for the excuse that we do not like being away from one another for more than five minutes at a time.We are excited to one day reach that goal! Idea names for our practice are always welcome and taken into consent. We are still not sure but we have some time. Well, I think that about covers it, hope all is going well with the world.
