My own personal Linguistics tutor.

That would be my husband. That's what he referred to himself as when we were brainstorming together on how exactly I'm going to piece my senior thesis together. This Linguistics class is the last one that I have to take and then I'm done done done. And out of the 17 credits I'm taking this semester (that's by far the most I've ever taken at once so it's kind of a big deal to me) my Ling Senior Seminar is the only class that is stressing me out. That's not so bad for being a college student, I guess. Steve isn't really up-to-date on Linguistics issues but one thing's for sure, he's a good writer and he knows how to put an essay together!

Speaking of which, he's been applying for scholarships left and right, trying to make some money for Chiropractic school. Here's a link to one of his essays. He needs as many votes as he can get to win the scholarship, so if you want to take the time......

If not, you can keep reading about the fun little get-together we had at our apartment this Sunday. It was like a cute little BYU 30th mini reunion. ;)
Here's a picture of the crew.
Thanks for coming Connie, Brad, Emma, Lakia, Deborah, Dave, Marissa and Cam! There were a few awkward conversations(!!), but all in all it was good to see everyone and eat tostadas on our laps!
And it was fun to chat with my sister Emma after almost everyone had left.
Girls picture. Thank you, Steve.

This week we're having Steve's mom and sister over for a couple of days! Fun! Yvonne's birthday is tomorrow, so Happy Birthday :)

And lastly, watch this. So funny.

First Post EVER!

I decided to create a blog, so here it is! :)
Here's what's been happening in our lives. This past weekend was fun! Craig came down to visit us from Rexburg and we spent Saturday and Sunday with him.
On Sunday, for Valentine's Day, we made gingerbread heart and snowmen cookies with chocolate chip decorations! They turned out delicious and I know Steve and Craig had a great time decorating them ;) And these cookies were perfect because they didn't even call for eggs (Steve's allergic to eggs) and I used organic sugar. That way Steve had every reason to eat them!

 Then we got a surprise visit from Hideto, one of my students from last semester. He brought us a pink cut-out heart addressed to me and Steve with "Happy Valentine's Day" written on it and some candy. Sweet, hu? I told him he could stay and help us make the gingerbread cookies, but he needed to be off to deliver his other Valentines. And his English was great! Always nice to know as a past teacher of his :)
Here's a picture from our class Christmas party we had last semester. Hideto is in the bottom left.

Steve and I celebrated Valentine's Day yesterday, on President's Day since we didn't have the time on Saturday or Sunday. After work and going to the gym, we drove up to West Jordan to our favorite restaurant, Johnny Carino's. It was super nice but on the way back, we stopped at the Costco in Murray (I think?) to get gas and we realized that there was a Johnny Carino's, right there off the freeway and we didn't even know it! So much closer! Oh well :) We have good memories at the one in West Jordan. Steve took me there on the day that he proposed to me! We've been married for six months almost! KARAZY! It was fun to talk about the past 6 months and our future together. I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!
