rad grads

once upon a time...

and so did he.
we both did!
and look how many people came to see.
and then we moved.

a HUGE thanks to everyone who helped Chris and I move, clean and stay sane this past weekend. it was crazy and we definitely couldn't have done any of it without everyone's help!

don't stop believin'

well folks it finally happened. tonight the sharks take on the avs for the first round of the stanley cup playoffs. yep, my team vs. chris's team.
the sharks have never won a stanley cup. i'm hoping this may be their year!
to be fair, since chris never blogs, i will refrain from trashing his team on the blog.
i will however say.... GO SHARKS!!

done and done

Today was my last day of school. EVER. I am making celebration cookies at this very moment. oh how the years have flown.

(This is a picture of me from "4 year olds" at Almaden Country School in CA. Chris thinks I look like a little boy. Rude.)

neither here nor there

i am moving soon. moving and not coming back. i have moved several times before but this one feels different. this time i'm actually moving on. i'm finishing school and leaving provo. it's a really weird feeling to be leaving here. i feel like i finally figured this place out!
i'm a little bit stuck now though. i do laundry and don't know if i should even bother hanging it up and putting it away. i'm just going to fold it up and put in a box next week. i will be eating totally random dinners the next two weeks to try to get rid of my interesting collections of food in the cupboards and freezer. i look at my dishes and kitchen and realize that i will be moving but not having any of my stuff with me until further notice. it will all go into storage at my parent's house in home sweet georgia.
how weird is that? moving, but not knowing when i'll sit on my couch again, eat off of my dishes again or even sleep in my own bed again. having such a wide open future is kind of scary but also incredibly exciting. its weird to be finishing up with school but it feels like time. i know i'll miss it here: teachers, friends, little hangout spots, the beautiful mountains, being in such a good place filled with people who believe the same things i do. so for now i think that i will just focus on the fact that i get to see chris next week and spend the wonderful month of may with just him and me...and maybe go hang those clothes up.

blog probs, weekend wanderings, randoms

i have a blog prob. i am constantly, and i mean CONSTANTLY writing blogs in my head. in my head i have a very interesting and frequently updated blog. now to just get all of my brilliant head posts onto my real life blog...

i was lucky enough to get to go visit the hubs down in south florida about a week ago!
day 1: woke up to find a nordstrom staring me in the face outside the hotel room window. walked over to check out the amazing mall. dinner with chris at cool'a fishbar, de-lish.
day 2: headed to the bank and the beach. drove around jupiter inlet onto jupiter island, checked out the lighthouse and soaked up some vitamin D with a good book. quick stop at the marlins bowling charity benefit to meet the chris's coworkers and dinner at the cheesecake factory.
day 3: sleeping in and meeting chris at roger dean stadium for a marlins vs. astros game with a win for the fish.
day 4: wifely duties day. laundry, dry cleaning, gas and grocery store runs. all this stuff made me feel just a little bit better about leaving, knowing chris had all the random stuff he doesn't have time to do taken care of.

needless to say it was amazing to get to see chris after a month apart. it was hard to leave again but in a matter of 2ish weeks i get to see him and then head out to florida YES. plus, spring training is now officially over, another YES, which hopefully means more normal hours and a day off here and there. jupiter is one of the most beautiful places i've been in the southern U.S. it's also one of the nicest places i think i've been! gorgeous hotels, oceanside mansions, beautiful boats, and almost nothing but luxury cars crawling all over the place. loved it.

this past weekend i got to head out to san jose to visit my g'ma and go to some of ryan's baseball games with jim, marlys and tiffany!
day 1: drive to santa cruz with the whole group to do some rainy coastline touring complete with natural bridges, boardwalk views, capitola and pizza my heart. canceled baseball game. dinner and pizzoukie at BJ's. YUM.
day 2: general conference. baseball game vs san jose state with a cougar win! stroll around santana row and an early dinner with g'ma j. glimpses of sun finally. food network love.
day 3: easter!! complete with bunny sighting in the backyard, yummy holiday brunch with the cousins and more general conference. wonderful day. wonderful trip!

it was really fun to be able to see my g'ma. i love her! we have a good time no matter what we're doing and always have good convos. i am excited to see her again soon at graduation! it was also great to be able to hang out with jim, marlys, ryan and tiffany! we had so much fun! thanks again to jim and marlys for flying me out!!

headed to az on wednesday night to hijack tyler's spring break with the fam
missing ga home
missing chris
missing justin already (he leaves in just over a month)
going a little crazy with the end of school but hanging in there!
still nowhere to live in nyc
seriously need to find some motivation to get me through the next few weeks
excited for the summer
sick of the never ending snow in ut (it snowed AGAIN today)

well it feels good to have that all out of my head. i promise to try to be more consistent so whoever reads this stuff doesn't have to wade through a novel (sorry to whoever might still be with me!). but for now i am tired. adios!
