Life in Reno

I decided that since we are now married that it was time to change the title to our blog. Im still new at this so bear with me. It took us 4 days to drive to our home here in Sparks. For those of you not familier with this area Sparks is a suburb of Reno, NV. The two cities are right next to each other. For those of you in Oklahoma its like OKC and Bethany. Anyway back to the story. After two long days of driving we reached Las Vegas. John's parents graciously allowed us to stay at their house while they were at our house here watching our dog Cheyenne.

Spending the day in Vegas was the best thing we could do. We spent the day relaxing and did a session at the temple.
We got to Sparks late Thursday night, so we went to bed and decided to unload the moving van the next day. I didn't bring that much stuff but lets just say boxes were put everywhere. John even allowed me to put boxes in the garage which serves as his workshop. Hes ready to have it back so he can work on a couple of projects so Im working hard to get everything unpacked. Its been a long process and we had the planning of another reception to add to it. We had a lot of help from two sisters in the ward and I'm greatful for their help. We were also blessed to have my parents and John's parents come stay with us the weekend of the open house here. I'm looking foreward to having my parents come visit again. John's parents should be moved up here by Christmas assuming everything goes through on their house.
I have also been going to the gym two to three times a week, and have started working with a trainer. I love being able to go with John. We each do our own thing but having someone to go with is motivating.
Two weeks ago we went on a cruise to Mexico. It was wonderful and to be honest we didn't want to get off the ship. It allowed us to relax and forget the business of life. We were able to se Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas. The weather was warm and sunny. It was wonderful to wear shorts in November.

I will try to do better at updating the blog.
