We did it!

Well, it came sooner than I thought it would.
It was hard work.
It was a lot of late nights and early mornings.
It was a lot of no sleep.
It was a lot of penny pinching.
It was a lot of miracles.
It was a lot of stress.
It was unbelievably crazy.
It was some tense moments.
It was "I need a break before I go insane."
It was "Man I miss my husband. I haven't seen him in about a week."
It was some weeks without anything in the fridge to eat.
It was date night=us eating whatever was laying around+what's on TV because we don't really have the energy to watch a movie.
It was me working a lot. A whole heck of a lot.
It was some skimpy Christmases.
It was a lot of prayer.
It was a lot guidance.
It was exactly what we needed to go through in order to learn what we have learned.
It was an experience I'm already excited to tell my kids about it.
It was the hardest thing I have ever done.
We are no longer college students.
Michael and I are quite the team. Between me working my buns off at work and him working his buns off at school we managed to be the busiest couple of all time. Plus, we managed to stay a couple.
I'm really proud of Michael and what he has accomplished. He has produced some really good work and he worked really hard to get it. I know this is only the beginning of a whole new stage in our lives but I'm excited to close one book and open a new one. How exciting it is to move through life together. To get over these challenges together and look back and be proud of what we have accomplished.

S.E.V.E.N days away

Hello there everyone. I just thought I would take these few moments to brag about the fact that there is only seven days, well six now that the day is almost over, until Michael is done with school. It's scary because he doesn't have a job yet at the same time so exciting to start this new chapter in our lives. I have never not been a student before and the only time Michael has not been a student he was protected by a special bubble because he was on a mission. We now will have to start being grown ups by having REAL jobs, which I'm already working really hard for that, and we "get the opportunity" to start paying back student loans. I will have you know that you don't think about those loans while you are in school because you don't really realize that the end of school actually comes. But I'm not focusing on the bad, I'm focusing on the fact that we are ALMOST there. Everyone hold there breath because you probably will be able to make it until midnight next Wednesday. *do not actually hold your breath. You will die. Michael and Luanne will not be held responsible for any blue, purple, or red faces (including death).

I'm so proud

My mom is a proud owner of a Temple Recommend!

Getting Ready

Today is Tuesday; making tomorrow Wednesday. On Wednesday I leave to Pocatello! Now for all of you faithful readers who live in Poky/IF don't get too excited.

One of my best friends from High School is getting married (Go Chels). I will be making her wedding cake. I have just a little over 24 hours to make her cake. I then will go to the wedding...then go home. So, I won't be there for that long. While I am still here in Cali I have to make sure to cross my T's and dot my I's because when I get back I have to dive right into a 150 person memorial service that I am catering. Oh and somewhere between all that I am going to WICKED!! (The word wicked is so much more exciting to read if you pause right before it and imagine the first few chords of Wicked in your head.)

That is all. I hope you have a great day and be waiting for pictures.
