Instructions on how to be a grown up:

A. Find a Job (check!)

I got a call from Mr. Tillman at Hidden Hollow Elementary and he offered me their 4th grade position! It's in Saratoga Springs and has only been open a year. I'm super excited and feel very grateful to have a job for next year. The Lord has blessed us so much...we are SO grateful! Anywho, just thought I'd drop a note to everyone. Thanks for your prayers on our behalf as well! We couldn't have done it without you!

First Pictures of a College Grad!

Can you find me?

Graduation Party with the "Coolest Cohort!"

We had a graduation party a couple of nights before we actually graduated! We went to Kirstin's house and had a great time with great food and even greater people! Her house was full of cool arcade games and it wouldn't be a party without Melodie and Katy getting into a food fight:) I absolutely love my cohort and will miss seeing them almost every night of the week but we still have BUNCO! Here are pictures for you viewing pleasure.

26 Years of Celebration!

Adam threw me a surprise party for my 26th birthday! He brought all who me to my sister's house under false pretenses but I was happily surprised! Thanks to all who could make it and to all who sent me warm birthday wishes! Here is a picture:

Easter Sunday

We had a great time this easter with some very distinguished and sophisticated guests.... my Grandpa and Grandma Tate! It was my first time making Easter dinner but everything turned out wonderfully and we all had a good time! The evening was topped off with delicious Strawberry Shortcake courtesy of my grandma:) We also had an Easter Egg hunt at my dad's house where there was plenty of candy to go around!

The end or the beginning?

Well I've finally graduated from UVU and I must say that I don't feel any different. I had a couple of interviews this last week and I have three more set up for next week, so keep me in your prayers becuase it's pretty competitive out there! In other news, Adam was worried that he would only be able to get a B or B+ in his chemistry class because of his last test but we checked his grades last night and he got an (drum roll please......) A-!!!! This puts his GPA at a 3.93 and the average GPA of students accepted into the nursing program is 3.86. I'm so proud of him and all of the work he has been doing and keeps doing! Right now we are in Powell, Wyoming visiting some of Adam's family and I'll have more pictures to post from our adventure soon!
