Color Me Mine and other Extracurricular Activities

I'm trying to be better about I'm going to continue sharing the most exciting details of my life in Provo. Did I just say exciting and Provo in the same sentence? I think so.
Nick and I FINALLY have an apartment! We are so relieved to finally have a place to live! I lot of stress has been lifted for sure. First of all, its in a great location and we have some really close friends nearby. Hyrum and Arleene actually live in the same complex but two floors below us and Ryan and Heather live across the street, but they are all in our ward! It's going to be a fun couple of years in Provo for sure. Whoa, fun and Provo in the same sentence again. It must be getting pretty crazy around here. Anyway, the outside is pretty ugly but the inside has been remodeled and it's really nice! No one has lived in it since it's been remodeled, so we could actually take a TUB! No mold, no smelly carpet, it's a pretty sweet deal. We are just so excited. We already have our keys and can't wait to start moving in. This weekend we are having a sleep over with all of our friends. We are all bringing sleeping bags and a projector and we are going to watch movies and have a fun time. Besides a place to live in, not much besides school going on. Oh yeah...and wedding plans! The countdown is officially 35 days! 
I wish I had pictures of the adventure that Nick and I had tonight. Our good friends, Mike and Lauren invited us to go to Color Me Mine again with them. They were having a special promotion where you don't have to pay the fee to get in, so you only have to pay for what you paint. Nick and I happily accepted the invitation. Last time, I picked a very practical plate, and as you all know, Nick picked the "date frog" which we have had a blast using. This time, I picked a little pitcher for syrup on "pancake saturdays," thinking it would be a great addition to our home. I was busy picking out my colors so I didn't notice what Nick had chosen. It went a little something like this:
(Me sitting down next to Nick) : "Is that a dog bowl?"
Nick: "Don't judge me, you don't even know what it's for."
Me: "What else would you use a dog bowl for? We are not going to have a dog."
Nick: "They don't make cereal bowls big enough for me."
Me: "Uh...okay."
Nick: "And eventually we'll have a dog."
So for anyone who thinks I'm bossy, this conversation is proof that Nick will in fact have a dog. He thinks it's good practice for children. I disagree, but I love him so much that I'm sure it wouldn't take too much for me to give in. 
Nick and I are so happy. We were talking about it on the way home from Color Me Mine. Our life is exactly where we want it to be and we are very much looking forward to the future. We are truly blessed! Especially me, because I've got Nick.

Love the pics! That place looks nice! I didn't know P-town boasted anything newer than about 1972. Nicely done! Can Nick make another dog bowl? I've lost that battle as well.
I can't believe it's only 35 days! I'm getting so excited! Have fun decorating your new digs!
