I did laundry this weekend. Here is a picture of one of Dave's Banana Republic XL sweaters hanging up to dry after it ran through a warm wash:

Here it is again compared to one of my very short sweaters. Doesn't look so XL anymore, does it? Ha. This is funny because this happens all the time to Dave's stuff. You think we'd learn.



This morning Dave and I woke up, got ready for the day, he left for work and just as I'm about to head out the door, he calls and tells me the Roaring Fork School District is closed. So...first day of classes: cancelled. For the occasion, I shall update the blog about our roadtrip.

We left last Friday morning at about 6:00, and at around 7:30 Dave and I began a list of things that we learned along the way. Here is the list:

Things Nikki learned:
1. Sun rises as approximately 7:30 am in December.
2. Interstate hwy. #'s are built on a system - even goes E-W and odd goes N-S.
3. The jetta can hold more than you would think.
4. Bridges are icey because air is moving underneath them.

Things David learned:
1a. You have to hold the handle on the air pump in order for air to pump into the tires.
1b. Quarters don't grow on trees.
2. Don't teach the teacher.
3. One spray of aqua diegio is plenty.

Here are some pics of the fun-filled 24 hour trip.

"Feelin' Hot, Hot, Hot"

We've had a busy 2.5 weeks. A marriage, a honeymoon, a holiday, and a move to Colorado. The wedding went by very quickly, but we had an awesome time. Pete did a great job marrying us, Uncle Mark DJed like it was 1999, and we partied hardy.

After the wedding we woke up the next morning at 3 to go to the airport, where we realized our tickets were never purchased. Oops. We ended up buying tickets about 30 minutes prior to take off and asked a guy to give up a window seat on a 4.5 hour fight so we could sit next to each other. Once landed, our flight to Belize was delayed an hour and we missed our final flight to the resort by about 15 minutes. The airline paid for a "romantic" night at their "finest" hotel in Belize city where the showers were temperature sensative, the beds were on wheels and the TV remotes required a $60 deposit. Upside? We had a pretty cool taxi drive.

After catching our flight the next morning to Kanantik, the honeymooning began. It consisted of sun, sunburns, hiking (in the rain), waterfalls, kayaking, snorkling, bugs, bug bites, scorpions, swimming, eating, humidity, and culture dances. Overall, we had a great time on our honeymoon and are very excited to spend our lives together.

After driving a straight 21 hours from Brush Prairie to Carbondale, we are settled at our place. Although Dave lost the keys to both his cars today, so...yea.
