I’ve officially decided the time has come to learn how to cook! We received so many nice kitchen things for our wedding that need to be put to use. We live apart during the week, so I will probably only cook on the weekends, but for the first time ever I actually have a desire to learn. Last night my roommate Rena shared a few recipes and showed me how it all went down. We ended up with finger steaks, potatoes and peach cobbler. Jeff is excited and can’t wait for next weekend!


My Sister Sabrina is 6 months pregnant with a little boy. I met her in Portland on Friday afternoon for her 3D ultrasound. Little Mason was not cooperating very well laying the wrong way, putting his hands over his face and then his feet over his head, but it was still really neat! He definitely looks like a little boy. He opened his eyes once and we got to watch him yawn. I’m excited for him to be here and to have another nephew! After her ultrasound we had dinner at Red Robin and then I headed to my friend Brittany's house to give her a haircut. Brittany and I grew up together and her and her husband got married a month before we did. There ended up being 4 other kids I went to high school with there. It is always fun to catch up with old friends. It makes me feel at home even though we were all the way in Portland!

The end is in sight!

3 years ago this month my Dad moved me to Corvallis kicking and screaming. Okay not really, but I did not want to go! He would tell me over and over “getting an education is one of the most important things you will ever do.” I would cry and say “you just don’t understand,” but now that the end is in sight I am starting to realize that he might just understand after all. Don’t get me wrong, there has been NOTHING easy about my college experience. I put 40,000 miles on my brand new car, forced my parents to jump on the Verizon band wagon so we could talk cell to cell and managed to lose 75 pounds. Yup, that’s how good of a cook I am! Just kidding, I am a horrible cook, but that’s not why I lost so much weight :] Graduating with my associates degree in general agriculture and my license to do hair will be one of my biggest accomplishments. I have learned so much about agriculture, hair and most importantly life. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity my parents have given me to get an education. There is no way I could have done it without them. Here’s to my 3 year anniversary of living in Corvallis, Oregon!!!!!
