Decisions, Decisions

So if any of you know Aaron very well, you know he has a very hard time making decisions. He likes to know everything possible, weigh it out, seek advice, see how he feels, etc., etc. It took him forever to buy us a camera this summer and deciding whether or not to marry me, well that's a story in and of itself. I, on the other hand, am like oh that sounds good, done. With the camera I was like that one is pretty. So tomorrow is the deadline for Aaron to make a decision on which firm he will be selling his soul to for the next couple of years. To his credit, he does have it narrowed down to two but when I asked him last night what he thought he was going to do he said, "um...I don't know, I guess we'll all find out tomorrow." I think he missed the wife part in the whole triangle discussion with his Bishop on marriage. Husband, wife, the Lord. But then again I'm not the one who will be working 70 hours a week while my wife stays at home. I love you baby!

So on Monday I'll be sure to post his decision. Any guesses?? Deloitte or PWC?? My money is on Deloitte.

Oh and while this picture has nothing to do with this post, I find blog entries much more interesting when combined with a picture and I love this picture. :)

So Much to be Thankful For...

So I have wanted to start a blog for forever and always thought I didn't have anything to say that people would actually want to read about, but then I got married and now I have someone who always wants to read what I have to say :) Which brings me to my first entry on being oh so grateful for my fabulous husband. This has been the best 5 months of my life. I'm also very grateful for running shoes, peppermint ice cream, heaters, the internet, and living so close to a temple.

So Thanksgiving was fabulous. We went home to Texas and it was cold!! We were so disappointed, but thanks to Wal-mart, we managed to survive. My mom's side of the family all came and all the nieces and my cute cousin were in love with Aaron. Maili spent the night with us and as soon as she woke up she started asking for him. Then when she said her prayer she said, "thank you for Aaron." She is getting so big. It made me miss little Abby who we will see in 3 weeks.

We also went to see the Cowboys kill the Jets. Aaron actually wore a Cowboys shirt which was a miracle. Maybe after we live there awhile he can be convinced to be a Dallas sports fan. We ate oh so much food, the pumpkin cheesecake was amazing and oh how I love homemade stuffing, and of course tons of Bluebell ice cream. When Aaron asked me what I wanted for dinner on Saturday night I was still full. Sports was a huge part of our Thanksgiving break too. The Cowboys game was awesome. Then Arkansas won in overtime. I jumped up at the end and started screaming. I couldn't believe how attached I felt to the razorbacks after having been a Pierson for only 5 months. Then we went to the BYU/Utah game which was SO much fun. Thanks to Spencer for getting us tickets.

It was such a fun, busy week. I was so sad to return to work on Monday, but have started counting the days until Christmas.
