Summer at Last


Yes, the rumors are true...
summer has come at last for this family.

After a five hour Accounting Exam last night,
ending 3 mins before the testing center kicked me out,
the time has come... for freedom.

This is going to be an amazing summer for us,
seeing as it is our last one as kids
before we have a kid.

So we are going to make it count.

I am not a pansy

I am happy to report that I am officially not a pansy. That's right... I had my blood drawn today for the first time in my memory, and I didn't cry, didn't whimper, and didn't even come close to passing out. This probably seems like a very small accomplishment to the rest of you, but I am very proud of myself. :)

Finally finished

This is me.

<------------------------------------ I officially finished my last final at BYU today at 2 PM. I will graduate next week in Political Science... which basically means I have no marketable skills, besides being really really opinionated and really really good at reading the newspaper. Am I going to graduate school? Not quite yet. As far as I'm concerned, this is my graduate school training for now:

And frankly, I'm much more excited about that than about going back to school. :)

Baby names

So Matt and I started with a book of 25,000+ baby names, and each highlighted the ones we liked best. Then, we narrowed our lists down to the top ten, and compared them to see which names appeared on both lists. The baby boy names to the left are the top five ones we came up with. Please vote and let us know which one you like best (not that it will influence our decision in any way, but we'd still like to know :).

As for girl names... let's hope we have a boy. We pretty much didn't agree on any girl names. :) Maybe at some point in the future we'll be able to put up a girl name poll, but for right now, we'll stick with the boys.

Brand New


Somewhere between insanity and brilliance,
in the time between asleep and awake,
there is a place where few dare to enter.

Come inside Apt. 309,
and you may never want to leave.
But we will make you.
