I did it!

I am finally done with school! There was a bit of doubt for a little while with an awful anthropology class. I won't share the grade, all you need to know is that I passed! I never could have done this without the support (loving pressure to go back) of my family. I have put Ron through so many nights of him being in charge of dinner and cleaning while I was in class or locked in the room doing homework. He is probably more excited I am done than I am!

As everyone has been asking me what's next, I wonder the same thing myself. Maybe a family, maybe more school (yeah right). At the top of the list is making my house livable and losing the weight I gained from going back to school. Working full time and taking classes full time sure has taken its toll on my body-maybe more than anything else! I have seen the success of running in my awesome-est sister in law, and am inspired to start doing it myself. I am starting small, but building up for a half-marathon in September. I have also been asked to attempt a sprint triathlon with my aunt and another half marathon in Moab with her in December. I am going to need a lot of support, so start cheering me on now!


The end of the world must be coming...

...because I am updating my blog! I really just never know what to say. Who wants to read about our uneventful lives. I am almost 100% certain that no one reads it anyway, which means I could probably say anything I want and get away with it...but for anyone that might be reading, I won't!

I changed the background, which I am sure Ron is going to hate, but I wanted something more "Springy." I also added some new songs to our play list, making it a pretty eclectic mix of music. I hope you enjoy it...music means a lot to both of us.

So, I have started to take a stab at the art of cake decorating (maybe I will get way high-tech and post a slide show). Until today, I thought I had the baking and taste portion of my cakes down to an art form...but I tried a new recipe for some cupcakes and had a mini disaster. Do you ever notice that you only have food disasters when you are making the food for someone besides your family (work, for example)? I attempted to make a triple-strawberry batch of cupcakes. The first set I put in the oven sank in the middle-like, really bad! I "googled" what may have caused it, but nothing fit my situation. I added some extra flour, which kind of worked. I just called the whole batch an aesthetic loss (they still taste fantastical), and piped some frosting on them. Needless to say, I won't be using that recipe again!
