you watched the nba draft, didn't you? oh cool, me neither.

just kidding i did.
when you fall asleep to sports center every night (not by choice) some of what the television tells you is retained. and sometimes i start to get interested. but especially when i feel like i have a connection with the people they talk about, like if they live in UT or went to the same school as me, or... something like that.

i just have to get this out in the open...
i might have woken up the night after the draft at 5 am thinking about Jimmer going to the kings.
i won't get into it too much for fear that i have already lost about 90% of my readers with my title, but i just feel like after a tough year the jazz needed the personality, the energy, the excitement he would bring to Utah and, let's be honest, we needed his shot, too.

jimmer- i know you're reading this- and i just want to tell you that we're sad you're not in UT, but for the first time in my life i'll be rooting for the kings (well, for the first time in my life i've known there was a team in sacramento... and i'll be rooting for them... unless they're playing my jazz, of course).

ruby time!

her parents and the boys went to Moab for the weekend, so we got to share rubs with candice and dave.
we love this little chick, or as z calls her "rub-a-chunk" or "rub-a-dub-dub."
we went to the farmers market (i'll be there every saturday) and said hi to every dog there (pretty sure there were 200).
then to liberty park (renovated and just lovely). not your regular lehi crowd (she liked people watching the sword fighters as much as i did).
then to target, i'm pretty sure she knows her way around that place.
then a nice long drive around all of slc.
and we were equally pooped afterwards.
after i dropped her off with aunt candice, i took a 2 hour nap.
let's just say i'll be the best babysitter ever for a little while longer. so pleeeease take advantage. we love other people's babies.

that cheesy smile?
are you dying?

this girl can dress.
zach was so confused why it took me like a half hour to pick out an outfit for her.
there were just sooo.many.options!!

but oh so cute.
tired baby.
i wasnt amusing her.
i want to eat those cheeks.
and you should see her thighs.

these last 3 are post-mini-nap pics.
we love our rubs.

i promise you this will be my last graduation post EVER. but i had to post some pics.

Dr. Seuss has inspired me for as long as I can remember.
As some of you may know, I get quite passionate about things I study or work on... If they are not related to science...
And in ninth grade I wrote a paper on Dr. Suess.
That's basically where it all began.
- The Grinch who stole christmas with Jim carry is one of my all-time favorite movies.
I think me and ryan beck are the only two people in the world who have this in common.
Also, it's one of the only things we have in common:)
just kidding ryan, we're like identical twins. i know you secretly read this.

- And, Oh, The Places You'll Go is still sitting on my nightstand.

Fox Hall.
where it all began.
i couldnt help but take a pic here.

My grandpa Larry literally filmed the entire thing. And he also told me I was the cutest girl there. So there you have it. Straight from grandpa larry's mouth. He was so sweet and proud.

he's the cutest husb ever.
what on earth?
why are we doing such faces?
come on, normal people dont look that ridiculous even if the sun is in their eyes. we cannot handle it.
we must be siblings or something.

vanessa was my friend from day 1 in the program.
i would say she's one of the only people who i really got know, and who really got to know me, in the program. (im not the best at making friends...).
as in, we could count on each other and knew what to expect, and we always had each others backs.
and, it also helps that she knows how to handle me when my blood sugar is getting low or when it was going on 4 hours of a group project and we weren't getting anywhere and i was going to strangle a certain member or two in our group (we were in a lot of the same groups, thank heavens).

Professor Plowman.
Such a great guy. And amazing professor.
We were his favorite students, really, he told us.

i love this pic.
alex woke up real early to come to this.
not sure if you can tell or not :)
they love each other.

UVU gave each of their students a copy of Oh, The Places You'll Go.
The Party Edition even.
I thought that was very fitting, and very nice of UVU.

zachy and his mama.
pam and rob had many graduations to go to that week, since me, z, kelsey and alex all walked together, but not actually together.
we should have gotten a picture with us 4 in our robes, probably wont happen now.

it was a great week, but enough of that now, i'm over being graduated guys- onto bigger and better things, right?!! right.
