Tagged Again

It seems as though there have been a lot of tags going around again lately.  I have been tagged several times with the "fourth photo tag" but have been putting it off because I was a little scared of what I would find!  Apparently, my fear was justified!  Here's how it works:  you go into your "my photos" folder and pull up the fourth picture of the fourth folder, and then explain what it's about.  

This happens to be one of my bridals.  Yep.  I was feeling a little antsy after trying to look pretty all morning.  I found this random plastic axe and decided to pose.  That's all.  I've never been known to be overly serious!

Husband Tag

1.  Where did you meet your husband?  In the BYU library.  My roommate, Sarajane, was an accounting major and told all of us that lived together that we ought to study on the first floor (accounting lab) because there were so many good-looking guys there.  That's where we first met, but then I needed SJ to get the ball rolling for me because I wasn't too keen on the idea of dating Adam right at first.
2.  How long did you date before you were married?  Started dating in November, engaged in February, married in June.  7 months all together.
3.  How long have you been married?  3 1/2 years
4.  What does he do that surprises you?  He is always doing nice things for me, like bringing me flowers and rubbing my feet.  When we went to California a couple of weeks ago, he surprised me with a professional massage at the spa in our hotel!
5.  What is his best feature?  I love that he is blonde, and I also love how tall he is!
6.  What is his best quality?  So many good ones...probably just that he is so good.  He's a very righteous man.
7.  Does he have a nickname for you?  He only calls me Meg or Meggie, rarely ever Meggin.
8. What is his favorite food?  He loves almost every food, except for cherries and squash.  His favorites are probably steak and burgers.
9.  What is his favorite sport?  He is a sports man, that is for sure!  He loves them all, but tennis and basketball are probably the favorites.
10.  When and where was your first kiss?  In December 2004, on the U of U campus. 
11.  What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?  Watch Utah Jazz games!
12.  Do you have any children?  Our sweet Ty, and baby #2 to come in April.
13. Does he have any hidden talents?  Well he thinks he is a good dancer!  :) He makes Ty and me laugh and laugh when he dances!
14.  How old is he?  27.
15.  Who said I love you first?  He did.
16.  What is his favorite music?  He listens to sports radio when he is alone, or when we are together we listen to country.
17.  What do you admire most about him?  He's a GREAT husband and father.
18.  What is his favorite color?  Red.
19.  Will he read this?  Probably.
20.  Who do you tag?  My Colorado girls!  Kim, Julie, Lindsey, Katie, Wylie, Casey.  Annie, if you read this and decide you ever want to post again, you too!  ; )

Going Golfing

A few weeks ago I posted some ideas about Ty's Halloween costume. We decided to go with the golfer costume, and my mom pulled it off beautifully! Earlier this week, we had our ward trunk or treat Halloween party, so Ty got to don the finished product for the first time. Here are a few photos we took after we got home.

"It's bedtime, Mom!"

He wouldn't let go of this sucker!

Our Trip to Disneyland

Warning: this post contains LOTS of pictures. Hey, it's really not my fault. We just got back from Disneyland! It's hard to be selective!
Adam did an audit of a hotel in LA all of last week. Ty and I decided to fly out and visit, too, so that we could go to the happiest place on earth. Anyone who knows me knows that I am OBSESSED with Disneyland, so the opportunity was just too good to pass up!
We have not done Disneyland since Ty has been a part of our family. It was definitely different with a little person. There was no "combating" Disney this time around! Still, we had a blast. We spent most of our time on the small rides, but it was fun!
Our friends Kevin and Tami Rasmussen live in Southern California, not too far from Disneyland. Adam and Kevin did the accounting program together, and Tami and I went through the whole El Ed program together at BYU. They have a little boy who is just a few days younger than Ty. They met us at the park in the morning, and we were able to spend a couple of hours with them having fun and catching up!

We got to meet Buzz Lightyear!

Ty and me in line at Autopia. Ty loved driving the car. He kept saying, "Wow!" the whole time.

The Dumbo ride
We loved how Disneyland was decorated for Halloween!

One of Ty's favorite places to visit was ToonTown. They had all sorts of fun things to climb on and in. Ty was in heaven!

The very best moment of the whole day came when we went to Mickey's house to meet the mouse. Ty doesn't know many of the Disney characters, but he does know Mickey, thanks to the show Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Disney channel. As soon as Ty saw Mickey, he squirmed out of my arms and made a mad dash for him. He was laughing his head off and squealing. It just made my whole life!

We seriously had a blast in California! At the same time, we are glad to be home and back into our normal routine!

It's a...


Yes, it's true.  I, Meggin Marchant, who all but swore after my awful pregnancy with Ty that I would never be pregnant again, am in fact, pregnant again.  Fortunately, this pregnancy has been SO MUCH EASIER.  Whereas with Ty I threw up two or three times a day, this time I have only thrown up two or three times TOTAL.  I have felt nauseous at night, but comparatively, it has been a walk in the park.  Because of that, I think it might be a girl this time around.  That would be a lot of fun to have one of each!
I am 12 weeks along.  My due date is April 20, meaning this baby and Ty will be 22 months apart. Here we go again!  
Sorry, Angie, I suppose my last post was a bit deceptive!

Boring lives

I have taken a bit of a hiatus from my blog.  The main reason for that is that I have had nothing blog-worthy to share (and still don't, really)!  We are all well and good.  Ty's vocabulary has all of a sudden exploded in the last two or three weeks.  He is now saying all sorts of crazy things!  It has been so fun.  Other than that, we are just living our same, boring lives.  Sometimes boring is best, though, right?
