finals are ova

hooray for breaks!
the mister finished his last final yesterday.

here's how two non-drinkers celebrate an event such as this.
because we are ca-razy like that.

Frick Park

Frick Park

biking in PA is SO different than biking in UT.
since there aren't mountains here, we'll call it rainforest biking.
even though i miss the delicious red rock,
this was a nice change in scenery.
it was b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l.

tannon, you should finish finals more often.

i was looking through some old photos and came across this one
that aroused a lot of memories of living in our duplex in SLC.

yes, we own a snugli.
no, we don't have kids. at least not any bipedal ones.

last night there was a talent show held at our church. tannon had signed up to 'floss'. (i honestly thought he was going to get up there and show people how to floss. dorky, i know, but i didn't want to break the guy's heart by telling him that).

he got up there and said something like: "when i got to dental school, i learned that i had been flossing improperly all these years. as a dental student, i feel it is my duty to teach you all the correct way to floss"

and then he made some awful noises and ... well, just watch the video.

*yes, the dude snorted the floss through his nose and coughed it out his mouth.
hot, i know.

just you wait....

if only i got a dime for every time this happens:

person: "do you and your husband have this problem" (substitute the word this with something ridiculous that neither me nor my husband would ever do)

me: "no"

person: "how long have you been married?"

*oh great. here we go again*. me: "four years."

person: "JUST YOU WAIT. my spouse and i have been together for x amount of years. you will be doing this too."

please stop trying to justify your marital problems by attempting to curse me with the same.

has this happened to anyone else? is it just me? why does this bother me so?

watch out

i think this is my third blog entry in a week.

huh. i guess miracles do happen.

i wish that i was one of those people who could sit down and write. i have very very talented friends when it comes to the writing department. i, however, hardly have thoughts deeper than what i'm going to eat next. what a shame.

with that said, i am going to let that boss of mine do the talking for me. sometimes on our informal & private webpage, he jots down some things he's been thinking about. this one really hit home for me and i thought i'd record it here on me blog so that i can come back to it.

that's right. i said me blog.


"Why is it that we call yesterday the best days?
I can remember high school being some of the best days.
I can also recall the years when my kids were very young as being the best days. I guess what I am asking is will we all look back on today as the best days?
Are we making the most of things now?
Are we the best we can be? Will we live with regret for not seizing the day, today? Do we really want to look back on today
5 years from now and think, 'those were some of the best times in my life
and I didn't even realize it'. Live like it's a gift, play like you're supposed to...
and enjoy today! The best days of your life!"
