This is what happens...

When I get sick.

I am pretty sure both of these were finished within 36 hours of purchase. I normally don't like apple juice that much, but when I am sick, nothing feels better.

Jon and I finished finals for spring term this past week, and can't believe how quickly our classes went by. We start summer term on Monday- wow! We are enjoying a lazy weekend with no worries about homework.

Hope all of you enjoy your first day of Summer tomorrow!

I just had to share all of the wonderful things I've discovered on the web:

download fonts for free. I cannot stop myself, it is too much fun. I am still proud of my Harry Potter font and I promise I will find a way to use it someday.

2. I know, "duh"
but really, I bought a CHI hair straightener for $50 (normally $190). It heats up faster than I can brush my teeth. Really, it doesn't get any better than that.
ps they still have them here for $71.54

This lady gives step by step instructions for yummy food, with pictures! As someone who doesn't know what it is supposed to look like when you scald milk, or knead the dough until its smooth- I am in loooove with her instructions and recipes.

a spoof on Mormon married/mom blogs. She is cute, she is perfect, she loves her husband, and she gives her children strange and unique names. She is totally offensive. And I love it.
(thank you Courtney for introducing me!)

They design dresses with more fabric, and more cover. And they make them cute. I think I would like to buy them all, but right now my favorite one is this one.

Hope you all enjoy these as much as I do!

Recent Accomplishments

Quick Update for my dear family and friends:
-last week we hosted a pot-luck get together with the people I work with, at Bridal Veil Falls. Despite the gusts of wind and kind of yucky weather, I would call it a success. We made hamburgers and s'mores.
Here is a picture of how strong the river was!:

And of course Jon had to climb the falls:

- Jon and I had our last full week of school. Monday is our last day, and then finals. Hard to believe isn't it?

-We got Willy, our car, fixed. We replaced his timing belt, accelerator belt, lots of other random belts and something to do with the A/C. I am sure Jon could tell you in more detail. After doing all of that and paying Jon's tuition, were just proud to say we still have our head above water.

-Jon and I are tentatively planning the best, most awesome road trip ever. More information to come later...

-Last night, after a hard week of finishing up big assignments and exams, we put lots of blankets on the floor- popped in a movie, and ate some pizza. It was just what we needed.

-Jon and I still like each other. A lot.

Love you all!

ps congratulations Kaitlin for graduating! We wish we could be there!!

I have changed my last name to Van Wickle.

Yes, it has finally happened. Do not ask me why it took so long, California is different than Utah. But, what matters is I did it. Now I just have to wait a couple of weeks for my new social security card.

And then I just have to change.. my credit and debit card, my drivers license, school records and anything else that comes up. But no worries, it is offical now.

Ironically... Jon's last name on his social security card is VanWickle. No space. We might have to get that changed as well, so we really can share a last name :)
