I'm leaving on a jet plane...

Won't be back again (for awhile)

I wrote a flowery paragraph about school being over, but Blogger and I are still fighting and it deleted it all. So I will leave it at this:

Prepare for the Sunglasses Game.

I'll be in Utah June 6. Let's play.

And any last packing advice?

PS No pictures thanks to Blogger.

Has the battle begun?

I am not a very technologically savvy person. But I mess around and find a way that works and do that over and over again. Well, Blogger and I have gotten along quite nicely until recently. Why is it being mean to me and not updating properly? And why is it not letting me upload pictures? Usually I click the add image icon and it's ok? Now it won't let me. Any ideas? Because I have a feeling in the next couple of weeks, I am going to have a few pictures I want to upload. Help me please...

It's the Final Countdown{s}...

Well, first, I wanted to mention that I had an amazing birthday and was surprised in many ways including finding out that my hubby even knew the password to our blog. When I mentioned this to him, he said that's what I get for having a familiar password. To this I responded "Touche!" Thank you for all the nice birthday wishes!
In other news, I know I am very guilty of looking ahead too much. But when you get this close- I cannot help it! I have exactly 9 days, 7 school days, 2 Thursday & Fridays, 1 Monday, 1 Tuesday and 1 Wednesday left until the last bell of this school year rings! I am way too happy about this. No worries, I love teaching still. But, I sure am thrilled with this countdown. Not only because it means I get my needed summer break, but also because it coincides with another countdown that I have had for some time.
Because in that exact same amount of time, we will be getting on a red eye to NYC! From there, we will spend the day in the Big Apple only to board another red eye to Iceland. Yep, Iceland. We stay there for a few days and then skip on over to Denmark! Yep, Denmark! We will then get on our cruise ship to see Germany, Estonia, Russia, Finland and Sweden! Is it really here? Is this really happening? Yep. I'm just too excited.
Anyway...these are just a few things that have been on my mind for quite sometime-173 school days to be exact. Now I don't know what to pack. What to wear. Any suggestions? It's time to pack! Yay!

Jenn's 25th B-day!!!!

Dear Wife,

Today is a special day for a special girl. Yesterday in Elder's quorum, we were asked to introduce ourselves and then share how we had met our wife. I flashed back to June 26th, 2007. I accepted an invitation from a friend to play a pick up game of Volleyball. I remember three things in particular about the first time I met you: 1.) Dang, this cute girl has some mad volleyball skills. 2.) Harry Potter shirt - Really? 3.) How can I fit myself into the rotation so that I'll play next to her without being too obvious. The rest is history...

Thank you for a wonderful marriage and for being an incredible wife. You are the most thoughtful person I have ever known. I love your surprises and how you know how to make me feel like there isn't anything I can't do. You are incredibly supportive and refreshingly witty. I've loved our adventures together and look forward to many more!

I know you'll probably find this public homage slightly embarrassing and nauseatingly sentimental, but I want the whole world to know how I feel about my beautiful woman on her birthday! You are my best friend and I'm so glad I get to keep you forever.

Your Husband
