School is OUT

I made it through my first semester in the EL-ED program.
And I even came out with all A's!!
So proud of myself.
Only 3 more semesters to go.

And now that school is out I can really focus 
on that wedding that is coming up.
You know....the one where I am marrying 
Yeah that wedding.
Let's get down to business now.

Can you Believe It?

Because I can hardly believe it.
The BIG day is coming SO fast!!
I can't even express my excitement to FINALLY be married
to my best friend.
It makes me so happy to think that in just 23 days I will be sealed 
to the love of my life.  
It really can't get much better than that.
I feel like the luckiest girl.


A Few Goals.

School is ALMOST over.
4 more days of class.
5 days of finals (next week).
After school is out/before I get married
I want to get a few things done/start.
Here are the first 3.
1. Continue making my recipe book.
Since I have been making some pretty awesome
meals for Blake and I.
2. Read The Hunger Games.
Everyone's been talking about it.
I think it is about time that I start them.
3. Start a little workout.
Yeah yeah yeah....go ahead and laugh.
But I really want to.
We shall see how well this goes.

P.S. 39 days...



We had a fun Easter weekend.
Blake's parents came to visit.
We spend Friday night at the City Creek Mall.
(I have to go back.)
Saturday we spend up in the Ogden area.
Easter Picnic with Blake's dads side of the family.
And Easter Sunday was spent with Blake's moms side of the family.

Oh! And how could I forget this part?
Blake's brother is serving his mission in Salt Lake City.
We were able to meet him for lunch on Monday.
(Poor Blake didn't get to come.)
But, majority of the family was there.


6 weeks until the BIG day.
So ready for this day to come!!
Need I say more?

Time to go find a suit for my handsome fiance.
We have to find the PERFECT one.

Have a wonderful night!

I've Felt....THE HOLY GHOST.

I was so sad to not be able to spend time in my
6th grade classroom this past week.
My three weeks are over.
And now I have one more week of school
THEN finals.

Let me tell you a little story about our last day of teaching the kids.
My partner, Becky, and I planned a lesson on the "Slave Trade".
We thought...."Oh this is going to be a good one!"
We were quite excited to teach it.
It started out by taking the kids right outside to the lawn.
We stood in a circle.
We went around in a circle saying an emotion we have felt before.
If anyone has felt that emotion- you step into the circle.
We wanted the kids to realize that we may all be different,
but we all feel the same things.
Kids were saying some like...
And then we get to one of our kids (who will not be named)-
he had to think of what he wanted to say.
After a long pause of hearing "ummmmm"
he says "I've felt.......THE HOLY GHOST!"
The whole class steps into the circle.
(Good thing everyone in the class was LDS).
But really it was so funny and cute.
It made me so happy to hear that these 11 and 12 years old
have felt the Holy Ghost.

I cannot wait to have my own classroom.
Kids are so cute.
And they really do say the darnest things.
(Remember that show?)



I love Conference Sunday Mornings.
My roommates, Blake, and I had crepes and eggs
for breakfast.
It was very delicious.
I will miss my roommates when I move out in a month
and get married in {less than} 2 months.
