School, School and more School

Well, when I graduated in December I was so excited not to go back. Then I woke up on Monday morning and thought "I must be crazy! What am I thinking going back to school!" Well, I am taking 18 credits this semester and 15 next, but the reality is that I will have by BSN by 21! Which I was discussing with Zac, and he thought that it would be great if I got my Masters by the time I am 23. I think that he is crazy however and I don't think that I have any interest in writing a bunch of research papers to get my degree! I hate writing, and more than that I HATE APA format! This is for Health Science only so if you don't know what it is don't worry, it is like MLA, but way different! But he seems to be fine with the fact that he is back in school. I have a hard time adjusting because I was quite happy with just being at home most of the time. But we look forward to this December!
I got a fun new present, because I have a wonderful husband! In January after we got back from Christmas in Arizona my laptop just stopped working. It wouldn't turn on and it was just a few months past the one year warranty. We tried to figure our the problem and discovered that most likely the motherboard was ruined. Which is like $500 to replace. I figured we might as well just get another computer once I got a job. But alas, I didn't get hired so I figured we would just survive the last two semesters on one computer. As I began to look at my assignments, 18 credits online, I realized that there was no way we could do all our homework on one computer, and still keep our sanity. So I talked it over with Zac and he was more than willing if we could find a good deal. Well HP is doing an automatic $200 rebate off all their computers plus tons of free upgrades. We ended up getting a brand new HP for just over $700, which it was originally over $1100. It wasn't even supposed to be done until the 27th, and then shipped, but it came today and I am way excited! It is so pretty and I am really enjoying using it. I think that Zac is a little jealous though so we will have to let him use it every once in a while. But I just had to let you know how wonderful my husband is!

So we have had tons of birthdays lately. Melanie's was the 14th, April's on the 19th, my Dad's on the 22nd, and Nick's is coming up and Amanda's all in the month of April. We are thinking of you all, and hope that your birthdays are special, we love you!
Here are some pictures from the concert. We are waiting in line outside the Civic Auditorium.

This was either before the concert or between bands. We were just enjoying our time together :)

This is Jack's Mannequin once they finally came on stage 2 hours later!

The Things Going On

Well I realized that it has been forever since I have posted about something real. Life has been kind of crazy. Well, March 14th we went to Vegas for the weekend for my cousin Kate's wedding and for Spencer's 14th birthday on the 16th. The sealing was great, and it was good to see some of my family. We went to the Adventuredome at Circus Circus for Spencer's birthday, it was just Mom, Dad, Trevor, Spencer, and Zac and I. I think Zac had fun :). Then we came home to find out that I have been accepted into the Bachelor's Program for Nursing. I petitioned to do it in two semesters instead of three since Zac will be graduating in December. Well I have been approved so we will both be done in December. We will be out of Rexburg, most likely forever. It is exciting to think about, but a little scary, we have a while to think about it though. We have been helping Zac's parents move to Idaho Falls from Aberdeen. It is fun to be in there new house, and we are excited to have them so close for our last year in Rexburg. We will get to see them often, hopefully they won't get too sick of us. And last night we went to a Jack's Mannequin concert. Zac had no idea who they are but I like them a lot and our friends gave us some tickets to go. I don't have pictures downloaded yet, but I will post them soon. And I was just put in as the 1st Counselor in the Primary, but because our Primary is so small I am also in charge of singing time in Nursery and Primary as well. It is going to be an interesting year, hopefully we will be able to keep our heads above water with all we have to do. But we are happy and enjoying life. But check back in a week, school starts on the 20th and we might not be so happy anymore :).
