fin (end)

I am finally done with dang finals! They are so stressful, and you'd think when you're finished you'd be relieved. This is not true however because you now have to worry about the grades you haven't gotten back yet (like papers, presentations, written finals), and feel the remorse and disappointment when you thought you did great on a test but ended up not doing so well. That is the hardest part, it's easy to accept a grade when you knew you had no idea what you were doing on a test, but when you felt like you knew almost every answer, that's when it stings!

Something else that stings is finding out your life isn't as planned as you thought it was! I have had every class scheduled and planned for every semester I'm going to school so I knew exactly when I was graduating. Well, Chuck pointed out that you have to have at least 120 hours to graduate, which didn't bother me at first. I had all my generals planned out, all religion requirements, and all my major classes scheduled! Of course that was 120 hours...not! 

Holy cow, I about died when I found out it wasn't! How could you have a major where the requirements didn't help fill the hour void needed to graduate! I just wanted to drop outta school right then and there. I went down to my college advisement center to see what was going on. Apparently I needed to choose a minor as well, thanks for telling me! So, ladies and gentlemen, in April 2010 it is predicted that I receive my BS in Geography emphasizing in Tourism and my 
Minor in Communications. Only time will tell! Wish me luck!

Also, we are coming to Virginia tomorrow!!! I am so excited, it's been snowing a bit lately and I'm sick of it! Can't wait to see everyone! Merry Christmas! I hope everyone has started receiving their Christmas cards from us! Props to Nicole for taking the picture and Leah for making my card! Where would I be without you two?

The Lights

Andrew and I went up to SLC this weekend and met up with our friends Derek and Ally. We went up a bit early to meet up with Leah and her family for a little while. Then went we got together with D&A and saw the "Body Worlds" exhibit, which was gross, yet interesting at the same time (I think my biologist brother, Aaron, would spend hours looking around in there!). Then we drove around for about a half hour trying to find parking to walk around to see the lights in Temple Square. It was beautiful! At one point I felt some tapping on my back, and I thought it was Andrew, until I realized he was in front of me, then I got weirded out! Thankfully it was Leah! What are the chances we'd run into each other with the hundreds of people there!

This is Derek and Ally (they found out this morning they're cooking a little something if ya know what I mean ;)! )

And this is my husband, he is absolutely crazy and I love it!

And here he is redeeming himself with his usual better looking than any model self! I am so lucky!

First Christmas

As a married couple! We got a tree....it's a baby! But it's the right size for to have for the next week and a half until we go back to Virginia! 

As a side note, I got my first wedding contract in the mail signed by the bride's mother for a wedding photo-shoot in SLC in April, I am so excited!

Thanksgiving Break

This break from school was amazing. I hate living so far away from my family and from Virginia! Luckily I only have to suck it up for two more years until Andrew goes to dental school (hopefully) back east! 

Here's a family pic the amazing photographer Nicole Pasquini took. It's amazing we're all looking at the camera with eyes open!

The three girls! (we're hott)

Mom & Dad (they LOVE each other)

This was an attempt to recreate an old picture when we used to go to CW for vacation!

There were beautiful Christmas decorations all over, I would just love to walk around forever!

We even got Chuckie to strike a pose!

Aaron's eye's are so blue, I love them!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Can't wait for Christmas! 23 more days!
