Spring Break

Today brings to a close the wonderful week of Spring Break! It was a very much needed break. However the only down side was this week was Matthew's most crazy week out of the whole school year! He had end of semester projects, finals and he took the MCAT on Friday! He is also going down to Galveston, TX to present some of his research he has been doing in his lab on campus so he has spend lots of extra time working. So I took the week to do many productive things and many relaxing things. Here are some of the highlights:
-Breakfast with old roommates
-Hanging out with Jenna and Cade
-Going on an afternoon date with Matthew
-Sleeping in
-Going to aerobics classes
-Playing games with our new neighbors
- Going to my school and grading papers with no students there
-Got two cavities filled (I guess that's not really a highlight)
-Bringing lunch to Matthew on campus
-Surprise visit from a friend (that was fun Emily!)
-Organizing my house
-Enjoying the spring weather!
It was a great week. Now real life starts up again tomorrow. (5 weeks of school left!)

We Moved!

I know I haven't posted in a while. We have had a lot going on and now finally have a plan of what we are going to be doing for the next couple of years. Matthew thought he was going to medical school but has now changed his mind. Very last minute he took the GRE with a week to prepare and applied for a BioChemistry Masters program at BYU. He did amazing on the test and got in! So he is very excited and I am very proud of him for making this decision. He feels really good about it even though he is not quite sure what he will be doing for a career yet. He now has a couple of years to decide. Another big change is that the family who lived above us has asked us to leave so their son can move into the basement. We told them we would move sometime this summer and they were fine with that. Well, we were looking and found a cute little duplex in Spanish Fork for a really good renting price and location and took it! It is right off the highway which is nice for me to go to work and it cuts my drive time in half!! Also there is a bus stop near by for Matthew to get to BYU. The only down side is it is about a third the size of the basement we were in. We have just collected a ton of stuff over the past year and were worried it wouldn't fit! Fortuntely we fit but it's just a little snug. We are planning on selling some stuff and almost have enough for our own garage sale. Hopefully we can find someone else having a garage sale and hook up with them! Here are some pictues of our cute, LITTLE place!

Here is our little bedroom that has a sliver of a closet! That really is the only thing that I'm not sure what to do about yet. We do have a second bedroom that is kind of an office. So Matthew gets the second room's closet while I get the master's closet and about 1/3 of the second bedroom's closet!

Tiny bathroom!
