whats up?!

We had a few things happen lately that I don't want to forget to write down!
Something exciting is a few weeks ago we got a car! We've been sharing one vehicle for some time now and it has been a challenge! So finally after many weeks of searching for something in our price range with low mileage that would last us a few years... we found it! we both decided we wanted a Honda Accord an thats just what we got! a 2000 to be exact. It's in very good condition with only a few dings on the exterior and the interior is decent as well. It runs like a dream though. we test drove quite a few cars and even lost some money on doing safety/emissions on some that didn't end up passing so we were beyond grateful when we found our car. the guy we bought it from was a super nice and honest guy that was going to byu so we knew he wasn't going to screw us. it just felt right and we are so happy with our purchase!

Also, last week was my birthday! I turned 25 on the 23rd! Marcel was such a sweetie. He had secretly been stashing away money just for the day! I woke up to a birthday message on BOTH bathroom mirrors (which is something my mom would ALWAYS do for us, and Marcel has kept the tradition alive in our family :) He then took cohen and i to breakfast at Cracker Barrel! He knows i love going to breakfast better than anything! i 'd pick that over a dinner date any day!
He had to go to school after that so I gave Cohen a nap until he got home. Marcel just spoiled me the whole day! He kept saying "what next, birthday girl!?" he made me feel soooo special. thats kind of hard to do as you get older and birthdays lose that excitement they once had. he made it so fun though! Later on in the evening marcel busily worked on making a cake for me and invited our friends and family over for pizza, cake and games! i have to say it was one of my favorite birthdays!

On to some other news! Marcel made the decision to be a tech again this year and we are going to Birmingham Alabama! Not the most ideal place, but our apartments look great from the website! We're really focusing on making this summer more about work and less about fun so the less distractions and things to spend money on over the summer the better! That way we'll come home with more! Wish us luck!

Sorry no pictures lately... i go through phases where i take pictures non stop and then somehow forget to take them after awhile! I'll catch up... we're going to California to spend easter with my family so i will take LOTS then!
