That's right, it's almost time for moving day! Hopefully when it actually comes time to move, it goes smoother than this- PIVOT!! I am a little frustrated right now- purchasing a foreclosure can be tricky if you're trying to get an actual closing date from a bank, apparently... Anyway, we hope to be in this weekend so we can get a little settled in before the holidays. Wish us luck!!

Extra points if you can spot the deer in this one!
Who's ready for Turkey Day? These guys better go into hiding soon!
Well, the cabin's great for seeing wildlife, but it's great for adventure too! We found the old rope swing we used to go on, and the fact that the tree was half burned up in a wildfire only adds to the adventure, right? Also note the thorny ravine below...
I love this picture- it reminds me of hunting magazines where the hunter is kneeling over their prey with the nature scene in the background.

Our GARDEN! It’s been a few months since we planted, and we are now starting to see the fruits (and vegetables) of our labors! The squash have taken off, and I have had fun trying out some zucchini recipes- bread, muffins, baked squash- you name it, I’ve tried it! Don’t be surprised if you get some goodies coming your way- the watermelon, peas, tomatoes, and chilis are starting to bloom now…
SUMMER- of course that makes me smile!! Yesterday I took my last final of the semester!!! Although I still have a lot of work ahead of me, I am taking this chance to be SO grateful that I’ve made it through the first year of grad school. It’s definitely been a rough road, but with the help of Tommy and my family I’m almost halfway to getting my degree. Thanks for keeping me on track and not letting me give up!!
Darius Rucker, aka HOOTIE: is anyone else so delighted that he transferred over to country?? This song you’re listening to now is my new favorite!
Here's a little adventure that happened today that made me laugh at myself- sometimes I can be so embarrasing! Today, I had to go in to the doctor and get a few immunizations so I can work at ASU's speech clinic this summer. Now, I know that I have a wimpy stomach, and tend to get sick if I get my blood drawn. Today, I just had to get a few shots though, should be no problem, I mean kindergarteners get that done, right?? Anyway, I happen to look while the nurse is poking me, and see a little drop of blood. No big deal, I hold it together until I get out of the office, and then by the time I'm out to the waiting room, I'm really sweaty, and not seeing quite right. I run back to the restroom, and...Yep, I threw up. Is that not pathetic? I thought I'd eventually grow out of that, but apparently not. I better toughen up before I have kids- I can't imagine getting blood drawn every few weeks- yikes!!

So, a great way to start out an anniversary is with a 4.2 mile run, right? I thought so too! Brie and I decided to do Pat's Run, and it was really cool! There was one point when you are running slightly uphill on a bridge over Tempe Town Lake, and you can see THOUSANDS of runners filling the road ahead of you- it was all I could do to keep my sappy self from crying! The run organizers pay this company to take your picture as you cross the finish line on ASU's football field, but I think they should get their money back- the picture is definitely NOT of me! Haha, I guess you'll have to take my word for it that I actually crossed the finish!

The view from up in the sky, the right way to watch a SUNS game :)

Tommy and I spent our spring break traveling to Utah! We kind of got it backward- leaving somewhere that is nice and toasty to go somewhere you can't even wear flip-flops! But, it was still a lot of fun to go and visit (or in my case, meet) a bunch of companions from his mission that are now studing at BYU. I majorly regret that I did not bust out the camera to take more pics!! Anyway, we also got to spend some time checking out the beautiful sights in Temple Square, like the Salt Lake Temple, Brigham Young's house, and the Tabernacle.

'Til next time- goodbye!
