Flag Football Champions!!!

During this semester I have been a part of the greatest flag football team ever known to mankind. With a flawless record this season, scoring 263 points in 8 games and only allowing 18, we reign as champions of the Cornell flag football league.

It was a very fun season and we were also a part of the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) Regional Flag Football Tournament hosted by Cornell University. Our team played in 4 games last Saturday and won all of them except for the first. The quarterfinals, semifinals, and championship games were all played on Sunday, so we forfeited our chances of winning it all. We can only speculate on how well we would have done had the rest of the tournament not been on Sunday, but our team is very confident that we could have won it all. This is a year we will never forget!

Scranton Trip

This last Saturday, the 27th of October, Sarah and I, along with the Carlos's and Prices, went to Scranton, PA for an Office party. The hit TV show The Office, had a convention in Scranton this weekend where fans could come meet the cast members. Sarah and I saw many of them, including Jan, Phyllis, Bob Vance "Vance Refridgeration", Andy, Angela, Kelly, Oscar, Daryl, Kevin, and Merideth. We took pictures with Jan, Phyllis, and Bob Vance "Vance Refrigeration". Overall, it was a great time and a great party. There aint no party like a Scranton party 'cause a Scranton party don't stop!

We're Married!!!

Wow, so we are married and so far so good! Ithaca is quite the change from good old Carlsbad, but Sarah is going to be open about it and enjoy it. It was pretty nice here in Ithaca right after she got here, but right now it is a little bit snowy and still pretty cold. The apartment has gone through a complete transformation from bachelor-pad status to home status and we appreciate all those who contributed to that through gifts and gift cards. We have received so much support from everyone and we want everyone to know that we are very happy and loving life. Sarah is already getting to know some people in the Cornell Student Branch and has had a couple of interviews already for receptionist positions. She is looking forward to having a job sometime soon. In the meantime, Sarah has had a couple of opportunities to give massages to some people here in Ithaca and her name is spreading already.

I am back in school and everything is going great in that department. I did well in my Biology test last Thursday and have two more tests in the next two weeks. There are only a few more weeks left of school so it is winding down and at the moment I have 3 A's and a B/B-. I am looking forward to the semester being over and enjoying a summer in Ithaca. I will be looking for a job during the summer in order to earn some money before the Fall semester, because I will be taking 18 credits and be very busy with my school work.

We just want everybody to know that we are doing well, everything is coming into order, and we couldn't be happier. We are enjoying married life and the chance to be with each other so much more. We love you all and will write again soon. Enjoy the pictures!

Big Day Coming Up!

Welcome To Our Blog!
She makes this picture look good

Well, it's 16 days until Sarah and I get married and everything is going great and falling into place. Sarah was able to sell her car, which definately took a load off of her shoulders. She has one more week of work in California before she is officially "unemployed". She is a little nervous about finding a job out here in Ithaca, but she knows that it will all work out in the end.

Sarah went through the temple for the first time for her endowment on Friday, February 23rd and enjoyed the spirit and beauty that prevails at the temple. Later that evening she finally got a chance to meet some of my brothers and sisters who live farther away and we all had a good time at Marcie and Scott's rehearsal dinner.

On Saturday we had a chance to go down to the temple again for Scott and Marcie's sealing and it was a wonderful ceremony. The spirit was so strong and both Scott and Marcie looked so happy. They are perfect for each other. Sarah was really excited that she was able to see a sealing before ours in almost 2 weeks. It was a good experience for her. After the reception, we went up to the BlueWater Grill in Santa Ana where I used to work for dinner with our friends Seth and Lindsay Cutrell and had a great time with them.

Unfortunately I had to leave Sarah again on Sunday evening and it was sad for both of us, but we are looking forward to when we don't have to be apart any more. I am back here in Ithaca now and just took a Biology exam and I think it went well. I have an Economics exam tomorrow that I am studying for tonight and hopefully that will go well too.

The weather is warming up a bit and is in the mid 30's during the daytime and the snow is finally starting to melt. I am hoping that by the time Sarah and I get back from our honeymoon to DisneyWorld that most of the snow will be gone and it will be welcoming weather for her. For those who haven't seen them yet, the pictures below are from the crazy snow/ice storm that came down on us here in Ithaca. It was pretty bad.
