Pell Grant Ahoy!

Since we just got married, I decided to take advantage of the fact that I can now legally claim that I live in almost-poverty. Even though I was basically living the same way I am now - in fact, I think I live better now than I did when I was single - my expected family contribution has gone down by about 20,000 dollars. What does this mean?

The government wants to give ME money to finish school. And who am I to pass up such an opportunity as this? Not I. I submitted a FAFSA (one of the smartest things I have ever done)and now the government is giving me a $1600 wedding present.

Well - I gladly accept.

PS. I got a 98% on my exam for my physics class.
PPS. It's my birthday in 40 minutes. This would be a lot more cool except for the fact that I am working tonight from 7 PM to 1 AM.

Sunday Sunday

Today is Sunday - what a beautiful day. The snow is all melted. It makes me want to go out and take some pictures. Yesterday Karl and I finally had the afternoon off on the same day (This never happens) and so we went to Winger's and then to the Haunted Forest in American Fork. It was so fun!!
Of course - we weren't sure if it was outside or not. So we assumed it was indoors and I just wore a sweatshirt and Karl wore his short sleeved shirt. Did I mention that yesterday it snowed? We got there and it was freezing. Karl usually keeps a jacket in his car but we did laundry yesterday and I made him wash all of his jackets!! The only this in his car was a little girly cardigan that belonged to me. Karl decided to "be a man" and wear it; he justified this by saying guys wear girl clothing all the time and he would just blend in with the Utah crowd. The maze wasn't very scary at first but then crazy guys with chain saws kept jumping out of the walls and chasing us because we were in the back of our group. Karl laughed and I screamed. We had a good time. The maze was about 45 minutes long and was decorated very cool - I think it was worth our 15 dollars. Note to Self: Next time bring a coat.

Our Apartment

I just started a Karl and Ashley blog so that way our friends and family would have a way to keep up on us. We are doing great - so happy and having so much fun being married. Karl is working on getting some computer certifications for the moment and I am still working on my Technology and Engineering Education major. My mom helped me arrange our wedding pictures on the wall and so here is a picture of our living room. I guess you can see into our room as well. So - whenever you want to keep up on us - come to our blog!
