The Best Weekend

Instead of studying ALL weekend Clark and I decided we had to get a Christmas Tree!



After we got our tree we decided to eat breakfast at ihop
It was way good!


Clark said this pictures describes us each perfectly. 
Clark always gets the same original thing that he loves - orange juice
I always love to get the new most extravagant sweetest tasting things - maple hot chocolate


We went to 5 different places in provo to find one of these tree holders and finally found one at rite aid!


After we put up the tree Clark crashed, such a cutie!


While he was sleeping I decided to make homemade Christmas decorations!


Our very first picture with our very first Christmas tree!... too bad it's blurry though


Now, these are my attempts of taking artistic pictures of my Christmas tree



This is pretty typical of us haha
But seriously... I mean this is how he won me over lets be honest now :)

The best thing about the weekend wasn't that we got our first Christmas tree
or that we ate breakfast out.
Every night this weekend, with all of the studying and things we had to do
 I noticed we would end up on the floor 
Laughing and just talking about life
And every night I realized that I love being married to my best friend.

I'm an Introvert.


I love being an introvert.



Top 10 Myths about Introverts

This describes me to a t…
Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.
Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.
Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.
Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.
Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.

Now, continue studying for finals!

Older

Clark's birthday was this week! 
Ever since Clark and I got engaged he said he could not wait until we were twenty-one and twenty-two 
because that sounds a lot better when you're married :)
haha well we finally sound a year older than we were when we got married which of course it doesn't feel any different.

But anyway, here is Clark's birthday blog.
 And here's to the best husband in the world.
I really feel so lucky that he picked me to spend the rest of time and eternity with.
 He is the absolute sweetest thing in the world and I had so much fun doing stuff for him for his birthday!

I felt way hipster when making this birthday sign

Travie was so sweet to stop by and wish Clark and Happy birthday!

Clark and I went to Iowa for Thanksgiving break! 

In case anyone didn't know that's where I grew up! 
I was really excited for a few reasons
First of all, it was the second time going back there in the past two and a half years
Secondly, Clark had never seen where I grew up
Thirdly, I think the last time I spent Thanksgiving with my mom was when I was a junior in high school
Fourth, I actually miss it.
Here are the pictures of our trip. We managed the 15 hour one way road trip... came home with two tickets though :( 
{ found out that in Iowa they don't even need police men, they just have cameras take a pic of your car and then they mail you the ticket... so lame!}


I cannot even describe how much I missed Milo!







Black Friday-ing... that only lasted 20 min haha

This is the only picture I took in Gilbert outside of my high school that you can't even see... I kind of forgot there isn't a whole lot to look at and take pictures of in Iowa during the winter.
The trip was way fun and I am so glad we were able to go for Thanksgiving!
