Nonetheless, Chantel went shopping with me on Wednesday night to get the supplies. And Saturday I woke up with a very strong desire to just do it. So Nikki came over to keep me company and help me out.
This was the result:

So (this isn't the part I would have forgotten) Eric and I were happily sitting together on the airplane, almost ready to take off. The last 2 people to get on were a mom and her young daughter--probably somewhere around 7 years old. Of course Southwest is retarded and there are no assigned seats so all that was left for them were middle seats in the back of the plane. The girl began to cry. So Eric and I decided to give up our 2 seats so they could sit together.
I ended up sitting between 2 construction workers who were going home for the weekend. They were nice to me and very friendly, but definitely rough around the edges. They were appalled when I ordered water and offered to buy me a drink. I politely declined. I think they may have offered me more than that had I not mentioned that my husband was sitting across the aisle. I tried really hard to make my ring as noticeable as possible.
Anyway, I wanted to tell my family the story, so while we were waiting to be seated at the restaurant I began with, "I sit by the weirdest people on airplanes!"
Without missing a beat, my 10-year-old sister Cassie said, "Well you do sit by Eric these days!"
We all laughed pretty hard. Good one Cassie!
Thank goodness I wrote down what she said... It makes me wish I was better about writing in my journal. :)

I GOT ACCEPTED INTO THE ADVERTISING PROGRAM!!!!!!!!!
In case you can't tell, I'm ecstatic! I can't believe it! I am SO relieved! And so excited to start the program next semester!!!!
Only bad news is, I told Eric if I didn't get in, I get to have a baby. He never actually agreed to that, but it looks like I won't be going that route anymore. :) Heavenly Father always knows what's best!

I don't know what it is about it that I love so much. Well, let's be honest, it's the babies. I LOVE BABIES! And yes, I want one SO BAD! But there are several reasons why this won't be happening for awhile:
I need to graduate!! I'm kicking myself for taking so long to choose my major. I just applied to the advertising program. If I get in, I will only have 27 credits left before I graduate! Yay! So.... that's not too long to wait, right? WRONG! Because of reason #2:

Anyway, here's what we've been up to this summer (last weekend was the first one all summer that we actually slept in our own bed!)
- Vancouver for Memorial Day, complete with canoe trips on the creek and Nertz of course with the sibs
- Several trips to Southern Utah - St. George, Moab, Zions, Little Wildhorse Canyon, Goblin Valley - LOTS of hiking! :)
- Vancouver again for the 4th of July (my FaVoRiTe holiday)
- 4-Wheeling with the Breadys
- HAWAII - we spent almost 2 whole weeks on the beautiful island of Oahu with Eric's family, and I just have to mention that we swam with wild dolphins. That was definitely the highlight of the trip!
We also got a calling in our ward... Marriage and Family Enhancement teachers! ha! We're FAR from experts, but it's fun nonetheless.
And the last couple nights, Eric has been playing Lacrosse again for the first time with the men's league. So fun to watch! Last night he scored a sick goal!!
I'm still working at Fillmore Spencer as a legal assistant for Randy. I love my job and all the girls I work with. Eric just scored an awesome job on Tuesday that he will start next month. He's going to be working at a preschool for autistic kids. The people interviewing him were so impressed by his interactions with the kids that they offered him a job on the spot! I'm so proud of him! :)
Well that's all for now. Tonight we're going to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house so maybe I'll have a picture to post tomorrow!
