We've Moved!!

That is right, Zack and I can now be found under a different URL. Sorry, but you are going to have to go in and change our address on your side bar, but you can do it, I KNOW YOU CAN!!

I decided since I am not Emily G anymore and that is what my blog URL is, it needed to change. We can now be found under:

I hope you all will come visit permanently! I updated the blog with honeymoon photos, pictures of our new apartment, and update of our lives, and a recent craft project. So please come and enjoy! See you there!

I'm Getting Maried in the Morning!!

Today is my last day of being a Galbraith. I can't believe this day is finally here!!! I remember that day in May long ago sitting on the steps outside my apartment with Zack talking about actually getting MARRIED!! It seemed like December 27th would never be here here, esp. when Zack was in Provo all semester and I was in Logan.

Today's to do list includes:

Go to the grocery store.
Get my nails filled- the manicure has grown out a bit!
Pack for the honeymoon.
Get all my dresses for tomorrow ready (I have 3!)
Paint my toe nails
Play with Zack, and relax since tomorrow will be so busy
Go to the special FHE Zack's family has planned.
Try to sleep a little bit! I feel like it is groundhogs day with Christmas! I didn't sleep too well Christmas eve since I was excited and I bet that is how tonight will go!

I hope I can see all of you who can come tomorrow to the big event 6 months in the making!!!! After tomorrow, we are off to DISNEYLAND!! Sunny CA, here we come! I'll see you then!

I'm Going there Someday...

And in my case, Tomorrow is that day. I am going to the Jordan River Temple to recieve my endownments with my family and some of Zack's. Everyone keeps asking me if I am excited to go, and I think I can only be so excited about something I know nothing about. But I am sure once it is over it will make more sense to me and I will be more comfortable.

Also tomorrow Zack and I are moving into our apt! We decided it would be best to just rent a Uhaul truck and load all of it in there. I am excited to get it all set up!!

I can't believe that this time next week, I'll be getting married in the morning!!! :)

One of our family's favorite traditions is to watch the movie Christmas Vaction with Chevy Chase. I don't know who can watch this movie and not laugh. We have watched it for years, and now that I am older I actually understand all of the jokes and am quite surprised at its PG-13 rating since it was made in 1989. Either way, a good time is had by all when we watch it and the Christmas season just isn't the same without it. Enjoy your Holiday's!

Some of our favorite quotes include:

Art: The little lights... they aren't twinkling.
Clark: I know, Art. Thanks for noticing.

Clark: So, when did you get the tenament on wheels?
Eddie: Oh, that uh, that there's an RV. Yeah, yeah, I borrowed it off a buddy of mine. He took my house, I took the RV. It's a good looking vehicle, ain't it?
Clark: Yeah, it looks so nice parked in the driveway.
[Raises class to his mouth]
Eddie: Yeah, it sure does. But, don't you go falling in love with it now, because, we're taking it with us when we leave here next month.

Margo: I hope he falls and breaks his neck.
Todd: Oh, I'm sure he'll fall. But I don't think we're lucky enough for him to break his neck.

Clark: Hey, Kids, I heard on the news that an airline pilot spotted Santa's sleigh on it's way in from New York City.
Eddie: [after a pause] You serious, Clark?

Frances: Talk about pissing your money away. I hope you kids see what a silly waste of resources this was.
Audrey: He worked really hard, Grandma.
Art: So do washing machines.

Todd: Well, something had to come through the window! Something had to break the stereo!
Margo: And why is the carpet all wet, *Todd*?
Todd: I don't *know*, Margo!

Clark: Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?
Eddie: Naw, I'm doing just fine, Clark.

Clark: Burn some dust here. Eat my rubber.
Rusty Griswold: Dad, I think you mean burn rubber and eat my dust.
Clark: Whatever, Russ. Whatever.

Todd: Hey Griswold. Where do you think you're gonna put a tree that big?
Clark: Bend over and I'll show you.
Todd: You've got a lot of nerve talking to me like that Griswold.
Clark: I wasn't talking to you.

Oh, and yeah. Don't forget to invite this guy to your family parties.

Black Friday

I never have and probably never will be a participating shopper in 'Black Friday'. I know, they are great deals and maybe for one of my kids it might be worth it. We will have to see in the coming years. I much prefer to sleep in (all that turkey makes you sleepy!) and enjoy my day. I might pay more but I get my sleep and a nice stroll through the store.

Thanksgiving was spent with the Pugh family. We had a great time eating the usual fixings together, singing, and playing games. After Zack and I, along with my sister Nicole and her husband Justin went to see the new James Bond, Quantom of Solace. If you like action movies, this is for you! There was never a dull moment and they had every type of fight/chase scene possible!

The picture above is what my sisters and I chose to do! We all had some metal starts and my sister Nicole saw the idea to scrapbook them to give it a more "Christmasy" look; the ones she saw were $45, so we figured we would do them ourselves! It ended up costing us probably $12. I guess that was our steal of a deal for the day. I really like how they turned out! Now I just need to get a house to decorate!

Thanks for the fun day girls!

If red wins, you can bet I will be blue

Thank you for being you!

I had an experience tonight that makes me love Zack even more, if that were possible. I am so grateful to have such a good man in my life. He challenges me to be a better person, he is kind, caring, and a hard worker. He does the right thing. He would never put anyone down. He always encourages me and thinks the best of me. He is always happy and 'jovial' as some might say!

Zack, I love you and I want you to know that because of you, I am the person I am today, and am better for it!

Plus, he looks pretty good in that pink tie. Yep, his mission let him wear pink. A perk of going to Japan.

Do you ever do this?

Technology is a great great thing. But sometimes, I think we can all agree, that it has its downfall as well. Or, in my case, can make you look and feel like a fool. What I will share with you is something that happens frequently to me. I work on campus, and most of the bathrooms are equipped with automatic sinks. Thus, I have become very accustomed to just placing my hands under them and then the water quickly follows.

I can't tell you how many times I have been in another bathroom, or heaven forbid, even my own bathroom at home where I walk up to it and stand there for a second or two before I realize, "Duh, you have to turn it on." Those are the moments I feel most foolish. Lucky for the other people in the bathroom for them to realized and silently laugh at me. At least I put a smile on someone's face today :)

Good times!

A place to call our own!

We did it!!! Today Zack and I finally found an apartment to live in!! I always knew we would, but having this taken care of and knowing where I will be is such a load off to me! No more looking on craigslist and sending out tons of emails and frantically searching for the best deal! It feels good!

We found it thanks to my good friend, Shauna! Her and her husband were out on a walk a month or so ago, and saw a 'For Rent' sign. She kindly wrote the number down and gave it to me to call. Of course I got the, "we don't have anything available right now......" but they did tell me to call back in a month. Today was that day. I had emailed and called several other places today and all told me that they had no availability, but this one did!

Zack went over to see it to give it the final approval and he said it is great. New paint, new carpet, great price, and ready when we need it! I can't wait to move in.

Can you tell I'm happy about this? Yay!
