attempt numero dos

Here I am! I have finally decided that it's time for a blog. I know that most people feel the need to explain why they started a blog, and I am no exception to that rule. I will feel much better about myself once I explain my need to start this blog. These are in no particular order:

1. My sister started a blog! Ok ok, truth be told (sorry sis) that I started my sister a blog. She came up with the idea, though and if any of you know her, she needed a little help with it. Apparently I got all of the technology brains in my family (and believe me, there are VERY few to begin with) and she got all the other brains. As I was creating and customizing her blog, I realized I had forgotten how much fun it was to have a blog.

2. The other night, my awesome friend, Marci, commented that she was sad that I didn't have a blog anymore because even though we see eachother often, you get to know people in a different way from blogs. So true.

3. Friends all over the country. Some of my very best friends (i.e. Mare & Al) are living in various places and even though I can check their blogs, I think it'll be easier to stay in touch with some of them if they can actually leave a comment for me. We recently had two of our great friends move away for Dental school (one to Glendale, and one to Richmond). Tannon and I miss seeing them so much! This is a great way for us (well, let's be honest... me) to stay in touch with them. We miss you guys!

4. My niece. I will probably be posting lots of pictures of baby Morgan on here because I'm obsessed w/ her.

YAY!!!!! You're back!!!! I miss you so much on here. It's been very lonely without you. You're cute that you explained your reasons and I'm glad I'm one of them. Because I have been missing seeing you and Tannon and this is the best way I know how. Love you! Oh and I'm really excited to see little Morgan a lot more.

Good to have you on board. I'm sure Kristy will be really excited to be able to blog stalk another person. And I will be looking forward to your crazy stories.

McCall hi! I'm so glad to communicate with you, because I feel like every time I see Tannon up at school I ask him to say to you from me and I'm sure he's getting sick of it for the past like 4 months. Yes, McCall Christensen is my cousin, I didn't know you guys knew each other. I would like an explanation on the puppies and candycanes blog title please. And did you watch the movie yet? Did you cry? I must know.

McCall said...

I am very proud you found the guts to make a re-entry into the blogging world. Your niece is darling. And although the "name debate" is still ongoing (for some reason), I feel that I definitely have dibbs on callywog seeing how I did have it tattooed on my back 8 or 9 years ago! Ya gotta want it!
Oh, PS I think I teach w/ someone who knew you in high school (i can't remember for sure) but her name is Elysia (I don't know her maiden name) She played sports and that's how I think she said she knew you

It's so funny that we have all the same nicknames and everything. You'd think people could be more creative. And yes, once you tattoo McCall in permanent ink, You will be the winner of it!

When will you guys be applying for Dental School?
