BYU I Miss You

Today classes started at BYU without me. There is something about being on the beautiful campus, sitting in a lecture, being with friends in the library till 2:00 in the morning studying and football games that I just miss. BYU was such a great school. It taught me a lot about who I am. Learning has always been part of me. Being a student gave me confidence. I always knew that I could do anything a professor threw at me. Now that I am in the “real” world, with a “real” job I don’t quite feel the same. I found myself sad/happy to think about my little brother who gets to go to school there starting today. I hope he loves it, because I love and miss it.

BYU I miss you!

A New Hobby

Since Josh is busy all the time I decided I needed a hobby. I love taking pictures, so I thought photography would be a good fit. Here are some pics of my friends little girl. She is a doll! Don't laugh at my lack of skills :)

Treasure

This summer I was introduced to a real treasure. My aunt/boss/great friend had, what was, my great grandmother’s desk. I love looking at pictures, and seeing things that once belonged to my ancestors. In some ways it makes me feel like I am getting to know who they were. One day I was visiting Natalie when she told me about this desk. This old desk that was just screaming my name. It looked awful. The poor desk was stained all different colors, it was missing pieces, and the back had come off. Well I knew there was something I could do. I took it home where Josh and I went to town. We took off the varnish, re-stained it, added a board to the back and gave it some good old TLC! I It was so fun to work on this project with Josh. Thank you to Sky, Mom and Dad for helping us with it. We could not have done it without you. It now sits in my living room as a constant reminder of where I have come from ☺

Johs’s White Coat Ceremony

Josh was accepted to the Texas Tech Paul L. Foster School of Medicine this fall. I am so excited to start this chapter in our lives. Part of going to medical school is having a white coat ceremony to mark the student's transition from the study of preclinical to clinical health sciences. Dave and Janet were able to come down for the ceremony. We had a great time celebrating this big milestone!

Brownies!

Last night Josh and I were able to go to a birthday party for our friend Dave. At the party we were supposed to bring a treat to share, so I decided to make brownie balls (for lack of a better name). They were so goooood, and turned out really cute!

The Leak!



This is a really late post, so sorry! About a week ago I was swimming with some friends. During one of our many conversations we were talking about apartments. I told them that I loved our apartment and nothing had ever gone wrong…until I got home. That is right I jinxed myself. When I came home there was a waterfall coming out of the ceiling. It was insane. I called the office staff who quickly came to fix the problem. They were able to fix the leak only after 2-3 gallons of water came streaming out of the ceiling. Thank goodness it was only in the bathroom!
