its been awhile.
i know.
here is whats been going on.

garrett finished his new book!!!
you can now buy it here.
we are headed to rexburg this week for him to do a reading at the rexburg poetry slam (which he started)
i know i had no part in the writing of this collection of poetry, but i am so glad it is done.

i got a new job!!!
i am now a preschool teacher at the university.
i teach the professors and doctors kids.
(most of which are crazy smart for three year olds.)
who would have thought, right?
it is one of the hardest but most rewarding jobs i have ever had.
most days its me vs. 16 three year olds.
sometimes i win. sometimes they win.
but its a good time.

last week at school/work i learned that i in fact never paid attention when we talked about dinosaurs when i was going through school.
while trying to teach about dinosaurs i found my self constantly going to and having it read the names of dinosaurs to be because trying to figure out how to say ornithomimids and pachycephalosaurs is really hard.
also, three years repeat, mimic, and remember everything you say and do.

we went to a friends comedy show, and it was soo funny.
every one should have a friend that does stand up comedy.

we have been indulging in, get this, siracha carmel popcorn.
if you know me you know i love three things
siracha, carmel and popcorn
putting them together was genius.
i based my recipe off of this one.

weve had sunshine and rain for the past two weeks.
guys, i think the snow is gone for good.
well, lets cross our fingers.
im ready to put away my winter clothes and start using my water slide pass.
also im ready to start riding my bike to work.
or rather, riding the train up the giant hill that the U of U sits on and then cruising down it on my bike.

we are planning a major birthday bash.
garrett, our good friend sharon and i all have birthdays in the same week.
(mine is my golden birthday, 25 on the 25th!)
none of us like to have the attention that comes with having a birthday.
so we are throwing ourselves a mini music festival on the snake river.
basically taking the attention off us individually, putting it on all of us and our musical friends.
music, food, friends, pinata, im trying to convince them we need a bounce house...
basically, its going to be a great time and every one is invited!

my mom started following me on instagram!
which is cool.
my parents arent on any form of social media.
so this is kinda a big deaaaal.
(k, not really but whatever.)

and of course we have had all of the in-between stuff,  visits from friends, lots of time spent with aunt bobbi and kids, playing with our animals, trying new restaurants,  going on adventures, time at the gym, trying to sleep in on saturdays, etc.

basically, we are busy and happy.
but will try to be better at this little blog.
