I'm ALIVE!

Sorry it has been so long since I posted. I just hate posting without pictures and I haven't been that great at taking pictures. I have decided that if people are going to keep visiting my blog I'd better post regardless of whether or not I have pictures to share. I will update you on our OH SO EXCITING life!!!

** Richard graduated. YAY RICHIE!!!! He finished strong with a 3.91 his last semester. Don't tell anyone BUT HE BEAT ME!!!! I will live, but I did get a 3.81 my last semester --- but I was engaged, which I figure is equivalent to taking AP courses, so my gpa should really have been a 4.81=)

** We had a fun BBQ to celebrate Richard's graduation. At the bbq we discovered my sister's post-pregnancy sun allergies!!! She breaks out into hives when she goes out in the sun. You would think I was avoiding the sun based on my pasty white legs, but I am not. I am very much so NOT allergic to the sun.

** The company Richard would LOVE to work for in Denver wrote him an email letting him know they are still going to interview him. YAY!!!! (this came a week after receving an email saying they weren't sure they were going to hire and were reassessing their needs).

** We got a new calling. We are teaching the 12-14 year old sunday school class. Seriously, I just want to know what I did deserve this punishment, I mean blessing ;-). It is probably better for me to teach 12-14 year old classes versus primary, I feel less guilty beating them.

** Katie leaves on her mission 3 weeks from today. So sad!!!!

** We went to a really fun rodeo on Monday night. For those of you that know me, you know I am a little rodeo junkie!!! Love em. My favorite was that they taped 100 dollars worth of $1's and $5's to a steer and let all the 9-12 year old kids chase after it in hopes of becoming rich. Pure entertainment!.

** I have set a record. I have gotten ready, which entails doing my hair in an acceptable manner and putting on make up for 11 straight days!!! I almost don't even recognize myself!

I will try my hardest to take some pictures this week so my next post isn't so boring!!!!

I love your posts. They are always entertaining, so when you don't post that little laughter is gone out of my life for a while. That is awesome about Richard. I am at home all day long every day. I mean I have my children's lives to be apart of, but I am home a lot. I don't think I have gotten ready on 2 days straight, let a lone 11. Nice job.

Great update! Congrats to Richard on his graduation and job interview. We visited Tyler's sister in Denver 2 years ago and LOVED it! That would be great for him to get a job with his dream company.
And yeah, 11 days in a row is a super record! You've inspired me to see how many days in a row I can fully get ready for the day. That will definitely be something for me to blog about! :)
