We are Survivors

There's me studying for my physiology Final...Can you tell I am stressed? haha

I got to the point I just wanted to eat it and maybe then I would remember it all :)

Ty writting his Final Papers! he says he does his best work the night before it is due at midnight. Crazy boy!

See Ty I told you procrastination makes you crazy

Wow! Finals are finally over for Ty and I. We only had 3 days of finals Tue-Thur and it felt like the longest 3 days. I was getting so freaked out about final because I really like to do my best and its just stressful living up to my own expectations. Ty is a smarty pants as always! (31- thats for you Brooke). He wrote 4 papers in the span of two days and two of them were in spanish. I am very proud of him for doing as well as he did, however, this procrastination thing he likes to do stresses me out major. As if stressing out for myself wasn't enough now I worry for my husband as well. I guess thats what happens when you get married the wife has two to worry for because the husband doesn't worry or get stressed. haha. At least thats how it is with Ty and I. I guess it is good that he is laid back I need a little of that in my life.

So it was way cute Ty bought me some flowers and framed the poem he wrote me to calm my nerves during studying. It made me very happy to say the least. It was a surprise, when I got home from work on Tuesday they were on the kitchen table, and to make it cuter he got me yellow flowers (my favorite color)!

These are the pretty yellow flowers and my poem! :) Aren't they beautiful?! I <3 you Ty!

I have two final grades in and they are both A's so I am getting anxious about seeing the rest. This semester was a hard one but I think it will be one of my best grades. Ty doesn't have any final grade showing yet but I think he is going to be getting a lot of those A's!

---side note. Thank you Dan and Brooke for letting us borrow your car on thursday to get me to my final and Ty to work. You guys are the best.

It is weird because now that finals are over I expected to feel more relieved and stress free, but then I remembered everything else that is coming up. Yesterday I had to pack for Phoenix. Which by the way is not easy. Our car is tiny and I have no idea how we are going to fit 3 months worth of stuff in that thing. It will be interesting, luckily Ty says I have a very unique talent of being a very good packer. This doen't mean I pack light, in fact I am a "just in case" very heavy packer I just know how to pack a lot into a small space. It's just knowing how to organize it in a very specific way. So that will be an adventure when that time comes around. I also had to pack for us going up North this weekend to watch my siblings while my very deserving parents go on a vacation just for the two of them, and for Ty's selling school. Along with the packing comes cleaning. I don't know why but both my mother and I cannot leave our house to go out of town unless it is spotless. I think because of the overwhelming good feeling I get when I come home and the house is clean. Plus coming home in August after 3 months to a dirty dusty home would not be fun to me. We were up until 4 am last night getting ready for this summer thing. bleh. STRESSFUL. It just sucks that it is right after finals so we have to rush and pack. Rush and pack= forgetting things

Ty with his normal Chin hair looking all handsome!

Ty now clean shaven for his new job! Still looking so handsome. This was the first time I have ever seen Ty without his chin hair. Weird huh?! I already miss it.

So it is pretty crazy we are in syracuse until wednesday. Thursday we will come through cedar city pack up the car using my talented organization craming skills and off to Phoenix we go! ahhh. Im not quit sure how I am feeling about this whole 3 months in Phoenix thing. I'm really not even excited or at least I'm not as excited as I was hoping. I am actually very nervous. I am getting so nervous I just broke down last night and bawled to Ty forever. I am a home body and the phoenix apartment just wont feel like home without decorations and furnature. Plus I am nervous about getting a job there. I really need a good enough paying job to pay for rent in cedar city and money for food and stuff. I just don't know where to work there and what is going to pay me enough and close enough so I can walk. If anyone has been through this and has any advice to calm my nerves about going to Phoenix that would be great. Hopefully Mike and Jess can show us the ropes since they have done the summer away thing a few times.


  1. You guys will do great!! You can always go to's tough just being there for summer to get hired, but it's worth a try. I think what you have to do is look at this like an adventure and something that you will always remember! Go out there and meet people and make great memories!!

  2. You will love it. I know it's hard to be excited right now. Mike and I freaked out before he left. We changed our minds a million times, but we are so glad we did it. I didn't even go with him the first two summers! I will drive you around, so you don't have to worry about walking. Don't be silly! We will job hunt until we find you a job you love. I know it's scary, but I promise you will be glad you had the experience when it's over, and it will go by fast!
