My life = explosion

I don't think I have ever been so busy in my life. It's a blast, but definitely taking its toll. I'm sitting here at the doctors office at the end of my 12-13 hour day (we have yet to see which one) and I realize I've only seen my husband for about 9 hours in the past three days combined. Its a bummer. But between both of our two jobs, and him going to school it makes sense that we would never see each other. Which is why we're actually looking forward to school starting. Weird.

The upside of this current explosion of my life is that I was finally able to afford the graphic design programs that I had been yearning for for the past six months. I plan on churning out masses of invitations, business cards, programs, announcements and everything else I've wanted to make. I am excited. So if you know anyone who need wedding invites, party invites, baby announcements.... anything, let me know!

Wishing everything in the world was digital.....

I was recently called to be the "technology specialist" in our new ward. I thought, SWEET! I love to do stuff on the computer. The computer is where I can be very creative. I can make the picture in my head become a reality. Now, I have done almost everything this calling requires I have all but three couples pictures uploaded to the ward directory, I have made the website look in tip-top shape, and the ward e-mail with announcements goes out for the first time next week. All of these things I can do. We may even have a ward blog soon where announcements get posted, posts about all of our wonderful, successful ward activities, as well as the weekly e-mail.

Yet, I can't seem to bring myself to do what I have decided should change the name of my calling. The ward bulletin board. You know the one with all of the pictures of everyone in the ward that had USU 62nd Ward across the top? Yeah. It is defeating me. What does that have to do with technology? As you can tell by my backgrounds, digital scrapbooking has recently become a passion of mine. I love to make my own cute little pictures and post them for people to see. But to do it for real? I don't know. I think it may end up looking like a 2nd grader did it. But here I go, headed to Michael's to buy scrapbooking paper, trying desperately to come up with a design in my head and coming up blank.

Wish me luck.

Flying high and our new {used} car:)

Last Monday I got the chance to go up with Justin on one of his flights. It was my first time up in a little plane, and I was amazed how smooth it was, I was totally expecting it to be really bumpy. But it was very relaxing and I got to see how beautiful Cache Valley is from the air, its pretty incredible. I loved it:) So here are some pics:)

Taxiing to our runway

My hubster in action flying around Cache Valley! He did so well! I don't know how he remembers everything all the time, he's definitely catching on fast!

Our other big news recently {well, today} is that we bought a new car! It is a used car... but it's new to us:) We're really excited. Between the two of us working two jobs and Justin going to school part time, I was doing a lot of walking around Logan. So we finally did it. It's our first big purchase together, and we LOVE it! It is a 2004 VW Passat, and it's GORGEOUS!! I'm love it!

At the dealership:) Justin's brother Tyson is here visiting, he's the other tall one.... makes me feel a little short between the two of them.... ;)
