We're rich!

Okay so maybe rich is not the word to use, but we did receive our first time home buyer credit in the mail today so we deceivingly feel rich.
We jumped around in the kitchen today when we opened the mail screaming.
(sorry downstairs neighbors, but no not really)

Dear President Obama,

We, the Schmutz's, personally thank you Mr. President,
for finally sending us our credit check.
We've only been in our house a year now.
We're just glad we got it before you've spent all our money
and the government goes bankrupt.

The Schmutz's.

we are the champions my friend

(yes he is as sweaty as he appears, and yes I am touching him)

Look at my amazingly athletic, all-star husband. I am a proud wife tonight.
Colin's team pulled out the big win tonight. They are the champions of all the six feet and under teams in all of Provo.
(okay so let's just forget the part about them being in the consolation bracket and only winning two regular season games)
Basically, I was thrilled they won because if they lost they would have to play a second game tonight starting at 8:30. As much as I love these game I was not down with that so I told him that he had to win or else (and other encouraging words to pump him up) and I guess it worked.
They won a T shirt and I thought that was pretty cool under I saw that the losing team got shirts too.
Hmm..whatever, but they have the title at least.
Good season boys.

celebrity siting

Okay I don't know if you would really consider him a celebrity but I would. I came within arms reach of, are you ready for this?
Kyle Korver .

I think I have mentioned on this blog before that I have a crush on him.
Colin said that if the opportunity arose he would be fine if I went out with him and I told him if the opportunity arose he could go out with Jessica Biel (like that is going to happen).
Anyways, we were at the gateway in Salt Lake standing outside of a restaurant with some of Colin's old mission buddies we went out with, then it happened...Kyle and his girlfriend, I suppose because they we holding hands and acting all starry eyed, walked towards us.
Colin noticed him and Kyle tried to pull his hat down to act more conspicuous. Then as they passed us Colin said,
"Hey nice shotting lately Kyle."
and then he said,
"Thank you."
He talked to us!
Well Colin but that basically means me too.
I kind of couldn't stop talking about it the whole night.
I'm pretty sure Colin got jealous. (Love you way move then him babycakes)

moving on....

My bracket is screwed. Colin said that if I beat him we could go to Olive Garden (heavenly food) and he wouldn't complain at all. When a large majority of my teams lost today I asked him if we could still go there and he said sure so now I don't really care how my bracket turns out.

Oh, and go BYU!

gimme back that filet-o-fish

So.... I want to be one of those bloggers that has something interesting to post everyday....but I'm not. Maybe someday I will become that blogger but that is not today. I promise we will be more interesting people once this semester is over. I am craving the end of the semester, warmer days, and more free time.

This post has no one topic and these are all random thoughts...whatever.

I decided I need to be a better photographer of our lives. I was telling Colin that I don't take enough pictures and so he said he would be a model for me and made this face. Hott.

Have you seen this commercial yet? Or heard it on the radio? Love it.

Colin is getting quite sick of me singing this over and over.

There was a near kidnapping a few house down from us last week and the guy got arrested pretty much right by our house. Creepy right?!
Also, as we were driving to my parents house last Sunday we drove by a trailer park near our house. In the right turn lane someone had conveniently left an opened pocket knife just for us to run over. I'm sorry if this is rude but I'm convinced it was someone from that trailer park. I wanted to call the police and have them fingerprint it but Colin thought that was a little over dramatic. Luckily I knew how to change a tire and taught Colin how. Okay so maybe it was the other way around but anyways.
It's now official that we live in the ghetto.

I'm sitting in bed and there was just a really strange noise out my window. I'm scared now. Maybe I will make Colin go check what it was. After all this is the ghetto.

the stairs of death

Today I was so sore when I got out of bed that I seriously considered skipping class so that I would not have to face these

The stairs of death.
There are many more stairs to it then you can see in this picture. This p90x business is killing me. Literally the last two days I have been near tears going up and down my porch stairs, getting in and out of the car and so on. My legs can not take another squat or lunge for another year, okay at least a week.

So back to the stairs of death. Today Colin left to class earlier then me and parked in another parking lot. I was planning on him supporting me on these stairs and to be with me so I didn't feel like such a fool by myself. Going up was slow going but not that bad as I thought it would be. It was actually the going down part that was the worst. I had to lean against the railing the whole way down and everyone was looking at me funny because I was grimacing in pain the whole time.

All I can say it that I better have freaking hot legs in approximately 90 days
or I am going to be pissed.
