"I know you can be underwhelmed and I know you can overwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?" "I think you can in France...."
- 10 Things I Hate About You
I have been "whelmed" to say the least. It's been a while- a long while- since posting. We have had a hectic life in the past 2 months. We went to Mexico and then came back for 2 days and then left for California to visit my family. It was so fun seeing cousins and relations! Much anticipated pictures to follow. After that we went to Idaho to visit our friends. We stayed with Susan and Nick and their baby Calvin! Nate commented that out of 26 pictures of the Idaho trip, 21 were of Calvin! :) He's just so cute!! We did lots of sewing projects and much lounging. We got back and we've just been working and school starts tomorrow! 
Also, my uncle passed away a couple weeks ago. His funeral is Sept 1... our 1 year anniversary. Killah. Nate can't go so for our 1st anniversary, we will be apart. Distance makes the heart grow fonder. ;) To add to the sadness, Nate's uncle and cousin from Cedar City were killed in a plane crash last Friday along with 8 others. It's been in the news a lot and wrecked havoc in Cedar. It was quite devastating to the family. He was very close to his cousin and we really enjoyed him and his wife. They are about the same ages as us and have been married a little bit longer than us. They were the cutest couple and just really sweet. She is about to have their first baby in a few weeks. Please keep the family in your prayers.
Since we are not going to be together for our 1 year, we celebrated it last night. Quite a celebration. :s I was planning this lovely dinner and dessert. But when Nate got home, dinner was ruined. So we went out to dinner at an Italian place, bad service by the way, but I was starting to not feel well at all and I thought I was going to throw up so I went into the bathroom there and all the toilets were out of order!! So I told the waiter and he told me to go to the mens! So I turn to the mens and there is a big sign "Out of order"!! How do you legally have 2 non-functioning bathrooms?! Anyway, I got progressively worse so we boxed up our food, ran home and I spent 10 minutes purging. It was about 7 o'clock but we got in our PJs and climbed into bed and watched movies.... LAME!! And I was still reeling a bit so that I didn't even want my dessert so I gave my half to Nate. He was happy to oblige. But it was definitely a memorable 1st anniversary. And for a present Nate got me a Goofy mug with a Goofy stuffy in it.. I kind of stared at it for a minute going ".... uh... thanks?" But the deeper meaning was that me were going to Disneyland!! Wahoo!!
I still have more to post but I have to go buy text books now. Bleh. Why do they cost a small fortune?? Oh well. It's all for an eduhmucation right?

Wow I'm sorry Rachel! Disneyland will be awesome though! I've seen their fireworks show from my hotel in Garden Grove, or City I'm not sure, and they're awesome.
