Just a Little Update

Well life lately has been BUSY. Landon and I are both working really hard at our SECOND TO LAST semester at BYU (woot woot!) Landon is taking 16.5 credits and I am taking 14 on top of working around 12 hours a week. Landon's classes are very intense and involve a lot of group projects and countless hours upon hours of programming. Poor kid. My classes have been great. I feel like I'm finally learning stuff that applies to being a teacher! I get to go out to the schools in just a few weeks and I'm so dang excited! I finally get to PRACTICE all these things I've been learning and hopefully I can be a good teacher. Yikes...I'm nervous! I definitely did not realize how hard it is to teach Kindergarten! Everyone makes fun of us...but it really is harder than you'd think! I mean hello, Kindergarten is the foundation for the rest of these kids LIVES! haha :) I'll get off my soapbox now...

Anyway, we are both LOVING living in Sandy and the commute has not been as bad as I thought it would be. The bus ride is a little over an hour, but its not too bad because I can just sit back and do homework, or read, or listen to my Ipod. We definitely made a great decision by moving up here and have loved getting to spend more time with the fam!

In other news, two of my best friends have very exciting events coming up! Jenna dear is leaving on her mission on October 13th. I'm so happy for her, but also starting to have MAJOR panic attacks because I don't really know how I'm going to survive!! She is going to be the most AMAZING missionary ever though!! Seriously, that girl is freakin amazing. My goal in life is to one day be as good as her :) haha and then Trina dear is getting MARRIED on November 3rd to her high school sweetie, Brian. I couldn't be happier for her! They are such a cute couple and he treats her like gold! I don't think I've ever seen her so happy and she deserves it!

I love both of these girls SO much! Its crazy to see how much we have changed and how GROWN-UP we are getting. Freaks me out! I'm gonna get all cheesy now... but I'm just SO lucky to have friends that have ALWAYS been there for me and that I know I can count on for the rest of my life! :) Life is good.

P.S. Okay sorry this post turned out to be WAY longer than I originally planned, but my parents took Landon and I to a REAL soccer game a few weeks ago and it was a BLAST! I saw a guy HEAD BUTT a ball into the goal. Best moment of my life...wish I could've gotten a dang picture! Oh well, you're just going to have to deal with a picture of boring old us... :)

If you have not read this book you need to drop everything RIGHT now and go read it. Immediately. All three of them. That's all.

How'd I Get So Lucky?

I ask myself this question every day when I wake up next to my sweet Landon. I really didn't ever know I could feel so content and so happy every single day, regardless of unpleasant or stressful or mundane circumstances (like school!) Landon is really my anchor. Having him keeps my life in perspective--he is really all I need to be happy. Ahh I'm so blessed!

Anyway, today Landon outdid himself!

**Background information: For those of you who don't know Landon you should know that he is VERY tight with money. (Before I met him, I was basically the opposite...woops! He has definitely helped me understand finances more haha).**

So now that you have that background knowledge about my adorable penny pinchin' husband...guess what he did today??

Okay, okay... I'll tell you! He told me he couldn't find my laptop so he asked if I would go upstairs and get it for him. So I go upstairs and see a sweet note on our bed along with..... AN IPOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

It honestly is still a huge shock for me! Its not like I have even been asking for one, but he knows how much I really really miss my Ipod ever since it got stolen last year (read about that awful experience here).

He is just such a sweetheart! He wanted me to have one so I can listen to music riding the bus down to Provo every day. And the fact that he surprised me for no reason at all... I'm just so lucky to have such a sweetheart for a husband! It just makes me smile to know that I have someone that is looking out for me.

Thanks so much for thinking of me and spoiling me rotten with your love! :) You're the absolute best.
