It's March!

 Lots of exciting things have happened in the last couple of months. I ordered my Aggie ring (ay whoop!) which I will receive on April 7th. I have not decided what I'm going to dunk it in, but my friends and I have settled on a Harry Potter themed dunk, so maybe... pumpkin juice? Too gross? Okay, Butterbeer?
Chandler got married! I was lucky enough to be asked to do her hair and makeup for the sealing, and her makeup for the reception. I don't have a lot of experience with updo's but I was very pleased with how this turned out. And she seemed pleased as well, which was the only thing that really mattered.


Caroline (of course) flew down for the wedding, so I got to spend a little time with her. Luckily, Little Bit (Caroline's nickname for baby number 4) is expected to arrive during my spring break. So end of next week I fly up to Michigan to be with Caroline again! Can't wait to see her and the kids!
I took a random day trip to Seattle end of January. As I was waiting in the Salt Lake baggage claim for my luggage to arrive, I got a phone call from a friend in Seattle telling me about this crazy dream she had where she introduced me to one of her guy friends. He happened to be flying in that weekend to visit, so she called me and rather jokingly asked if I wanted to fly up to Seattle for a blind date.
I had planned on joining my dad on an epic road trip from Utah to Los Angeles in his vintage VW bus, but Dad decided to tow the bus instead of driving it (which is not NEARLY as epic or exciting). So I took Heidi up on her invitation and I flew to Seattle the next morning. We had a fun time walking around the city which was sunny and clear. I don't know why, but each time I've visited Seattle (which is, granted, only 2 times) it's sunny and beautiful!
Ellenos greek yogurt is a MUST when you visit Seattle. We snacked as we walked around the famous Pike Place Market, we watched the water for bit, we ate at Dick's burgers, and then went back to the apartment to watch a movie.
Nothing came of the introduction, but I am nonetheless very happy I flew up for the day. I really do love the pacific northwest. And it was great to see my friend again!

These are some of my very best friends in College Station. Hannah, the one in the very center, is currently serving in the Salt Lake City East Mission. I went to her endowment in San Antonio a couple weeks ago. What a beautiful temple! Now I just need to visit the Lubbock temple and I'll have been to all the ones in Texas!
