Tearin' Up!

On Sunday, I walked downstairs to find Curtis watching the Walt Disney movie The Game Plan.  Towards the end of the movie there is a really cute part where the little girl is cheering for her dad.  I looked over at Curtis and saw him wiping away tears!  Not only this once, but a couple more times during the movie!  I don't ever really cry in movies.  I might get a little misty, but never real tears.  Curtis had real tears!  haha...  It was kinda funny...and totally cute!  

Are You Kidding Me!

I'm taking my last prerequisite right now before I start nursing school in the fall.  These are all the books for one freaking class!!  Five books for one class!?!?  Are you kidding me?  Human Anatomy is an interesting subject, but way hard...especially during the summer because it's everything condensed into 7 short weeks.  We have six cadavers that we work on in class.  It's pretty gross, but kind of cool.  We'll see how it goes... 

Gettin' Stuck!

Tyson just barely learned how to go down the stairs.  He used to go up half way and get stuck and not be able to come back down.  I thought it was pretty funny. 

...and he learned how to sit a couple weeks ago.  So cute!  I'm such a great teacher  j/k  :)

We Are Officially Home Owners!

My favorite part...the huge closet.  :) 
Master bathroom
Living room 
Stuff everywhere...
More stuff...but you can see empty boxes which means that we at least started putting stuff where it actually belongs. 
Tyson found the empty pizza boxes  :)

So...Curtis and I are officially home owners.  We have been casually looking for the past six months or so at different places and decided this town home was the best bang for our buck.  There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs...a nice kitchen area, living room, and a half bath downstairs.  It has a good size patio area in the backyard, perfect for a BBQ grill, table and chairs..or whatever.  Tyson finally has some space to roam :)  It also has a unfinished basement for future growth.  There is SO much storage space...it's absolutely WONDERFUL!!  Coming from a two bedroom apartment...this place seems so big.  It's perfect for us...and even has enough room where my parents can actually stay at our house for once when they come into town.  :)  Card games at the Brown's!!  We are so excited and can't wait to paint and decorate!!!   
We had planned on moving out on Saurday, but no Uhauls were available.  So last minute we started packing and moved out Friday.  It took us ALL day to move...two trips with a Uhaul.  We thought we could do it all alone until we tried to pick up our entertainment center.  Curtis' former coworkers Dave Ashby and Derek Kawaii helped out all day.  Dave's wife also helped me put kitchen stuff in cabinets and organized my pantry.  Dave's kids and Derek's brother even came over and helped unload the Uhaul.  They were all lifesavers!!!  It would have taken Curtis and I FOREVER.  Thank you guys soooo much for sacrificing your Friday night and helping out!!!!

Tyson With His New Friends!

 Olivia playing tug-o-war with Tyson.  :) 
Tyler, Jamie, Olivia, and Drew came down to Orem last week to buy a new car.  They had to stop by and have their new dog Zoe meet Tyson.  The Brown's and Dabo's bought dogs on the same day.  We both never even talked about wanting a dog and happened to buy one on that same day.  Crazy!  Even though Tyson was bigger, and outweighed Zoe by a few ponds, he was still scared.  After a half hour, he finally started playing with her and got comfortable.  
We went up to Jake and Robyn Kuresa's house last week for a BBQ.  Here is Tyson with the their new dog Navy.  :)  I was surprised with how good they were with each other.  


I just received my acceptance letter into nursing school!!  I got in!!  I scored in the 99th percentile on the nursing entrance exam, but I was still a little nervous about getting in because they only take 40 out of over 300 applicants.  I'm so excited!!!
