Because you asked...

...I will answer!

Some of you have asked questions about school, work, where we want to move, etc, so I thought I'd give it to you!! (Plus I can't think of anything more exciting to tell you about :) )

So Ben and I are both up at Weber State. He is graduating in December in Business Marketing. I am SO excited for him to be done!! He is working really hard and I am super proud of him. I still have two years left, but when I am done I'll be a high school English teacher. That will be a sweet day!!

Ben works at a company selling service for signs, and his dad works at the same company selling the actual signs themselves. I work as a tech in the hospital in Labor and Delivery/Mother-Baby, since they are the same floor. It's pretty sweet. I spend my time handing instruments in c-sections and bathing brand new babies. Ben has a desk job and I run my behind off, so he is sometimes confused as to why I am exhausted when I get home!

Also, we put our house up for sale but have since decided we may just wait til Ben graduates before we move. We were going to move a little bit south to Layton/Syracuse area, but we'll see. I absolutely love my house. It's tiny with a massive yard and it's basically adorable, so I am well content to stay for another year!

That's the up-date! Hopefully we take a sweet trip somewhere soon or else something else more exciting comes for me to enlighten you with. Until then...! :)

School's out. sigh. so much time on my hands now. Don't worry, I still work full time. But at the hospital that translates into three twelve hour shifts a week... and four wonderful days off. Last week, the first week with no school, I was fairly productive. I cleaned the house, ran the errands, and somehow passed the time without feeling like I was completely wasteful of it. However, this week, I've got a book. and it's a good book. So yesterday, I read... for eight hours. How my body didn't wildly protest to that, I don't know. But it was rather enjoyable. Now what to do with the rest of the summer?!

note: I am not always THAT lazy. Just occasionally, such as when I find a really good book. Or when I feel like watching A&E's five hour "Pride and Prejudice." I do know how to exercise, so try not to judge me too harshly!

The Grand Gulch

Unreliable internet as well as a busy few weeks has kept me from posting. However, don't let the lack of post fool you into thinking we have been sitting on our rears staring into space! We finished finals up at Weber State last week, it feels fabulous! We are also trying to sell our house, and trying not to get our hopes up too high, lest there be no buyer. But just maybe! I mean, it's darling, who wouldn't want it?! And last yet certainly not least... We returned last week from our much anticipated backpacking trip to the Grand Gulch! Yes that's right, peeps... it was amazing! We joined with Ben's boss and a co-worker, Ben's sister and brother-in-law, and a few other kind people, and embarked on this wonderful adventure. We hiked through some beautiful scenery as well as Anasazi Ruins that are between 800 and 2000 years old. It was an incredibly awe-inspiring journey and we were so glad to see the legacy of those people.
Enjoy a few of our pics...

The beginning... we had no idea what we were in for...

Ben's sister and brother-in-law

These were amazing. We think the one on the left was of a pregnant person... there is a person inside the bigger person. And don't worry, the one on the right was the male...

Marking the start and finish points

36 miles later... We did it!! I was astonished!
