It's a long one, sorry!
A lot has changed since the last time I posted. I don't really want to recount all the details, so I'll just hit the highlights, include some pictures, and then I promise to be a better blogger from here on out. Especially since I am (I think) getting rid of my facebook soon). I want a place to put up pictures and updates and see how everyone is doing, but I just get so caught up in looking at random people doing things, that I end up spending more time looking at other people's lives than living my own.
I'm making the break.
I will admit that I have been better over the past few months, since there really isn't much time to do anything when you are planning a wedding, getting married, honeymooning, becoming a student, working and *trying* to be a good wife. But still, there just isn't enough time in the day for FB and so it looks like we will be parting ways.
Now that I explained my soon-to-be absence in the social networking world, I'm jumping over to Blogging. It seems like that's what most newly married cute girls do, and I want to be a part of it!
Here are the promised highlights since last time:
- Randal and I went to Reno on a trip with my family to visit my Grandparents. More of that can be seen here.
- On August 6th, in the Idaho Falls, Idaho LDS temple, Randal and I got married. We decided to have the reception in Utah at my parents' house. Don't worry, there will most likely be an upcoming wedding post full of pictures.
- August 7th, Randal and I started our two-week honeymoon. We spent the majority of it on the North Shore of Hawaii, and then about 3 days in various terminals, airport gardens, airports, and even an unplanned excursion to Kauai. It wasn't really great, but we made the best of it and eventually we did get home. Tip: Don't fly to Hawaii with a stand-by passenger.
- We went on a camping trip with Randal's family up to Bear Lake last weekend. It was really fun, but way too windy. It's insane how blue Bear Lake is.
Nothing else of note has really happened. Just a lot of thank you notes, watching Psych online, multiple trips to Sams Club, Target, Wal-Mart, and eating leftover wedding Zeppes like err night.
Oh! and I also legally changed my name today, so we are officially Randal and Kirsten Clayton. Sounds pretty d good.
So for now, if you want to stalk either one of us, I suppose you will just have to look back to our humble blog. And I promise to try and make it better looking, it's pretty jumbled up right now. I need Blog help!
Sneak Peak for my upcoming Wedding Post. Get Excited!
