I love my mom, and this is why...
she loves being a mom, and I hope I can
be as wonderful a mother as she is someday!
4. She loves to laugh! And she has one
of the best laughs around. Her face turns red
and she starts wheezing when she thinks
something is really hilarious. She makes us
laugh all the time, too!
5. My mom is my other best friend! I talk
to her about anything and everything, and
I love to spend time with her. I know
she'll always be there for me.
- "How did there get a hole in the ceiling?!"
- "There's a flick in my boot!"
- "Maybe the dingalo ate your baby..."
- "Chickee says time to get up..." followed by the most annoying rooster noise you'll ever hear in your life!
- "I'm going to smother you in the night!"
- "We don't call names...shut up, you stupid idiot!"

So, the day I have been working for for the past 17 years or so has finally come and gone. I graduated from college! It sounds exciting...and it is! As many of you know, I started my college experience down at the U of U (which is still where my heart is, just so you know). Only after blowing my tuition money on my senior trip in Hawaii with my best girls in the world, Jackie and Ceara. I had a ball at the U ~ I made lots of friends and had so much fun making some of my very best memories, but I really didn't do that great with the whole "school" part of it all. Then I met Richard, and he likes to think he straightened me out...hahaha... So after we got married, I transfered to Weber, which I was never too thrilled about, but it ended up being the best thing ever! I found the program of my dreams, and I ended up graduating Summa Cum Laude. I had three awesome internship opportunities working in the nutrition department on campus, at the health department, and with the Women In Motion program. I came to love and respect many of my professors, and I made a lot of friends! I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Performance Management and Nutrition Education. I was lucky and blessed enough to find an awesome part-time job in my field as a Wellness Specialist that I started the week of graduation, and I love it so far! I know that my education will benefit me and my family for the rest of our lives. It was definitely all worth it! ....blah, blah, blah...I'm done. I really am so excited about being graduated, but I could go on and on forever! Thanks to my family for your support throughout all of my years of school. Thanks to all of my teachers and professors and coaches, you really have taught me so much! And of course, thanks to Richard ~ you've put up with my crazy during school and life, and for that I'll love you forever!
I know this is so so so many pictures, but it was one of the biggest days of my life, so I didn't want to leave out any of my favorites...
Katherine, Natalie, and I after the longest
