hey yall. it feels good typing this blog post because WE HAVE INTERNET AGAIN! i never knew how much i would miss it until i was home along a whole week while rob was at his new job with nothing to do but unpack and unpack... the good part of that is, well yes, we are all unpacked!! so many posts are coming soon about our move, our trip to santa barbara and san francisco and exploring our new home here in portland. one step at a time... haha

before we left, rob and i graduated! seems like lifetimes ago, but we both walked across the stage april 26th decked out in our extremely attractive cap and gowns... rob pulled it off a little better than i did haha (;

robbie graduated with a bachelors in business management with an emphasis in entrepreneurship from the marriott school of business at byu. i am so very proud of him and all of his accomplishments and probably most of all landing a great job right out of college! we are so incredibly blessed and i thank my Heavenly Father every night for the wonderful marriage rob and i share. i also got to walk with rob in the business ceremony but i graduated with a bachelors in elementary education with a TESOL minor (teaching english language learners) from the mckay school of education. i just have to finish my student teaching this fall in portland to make it official. (so technically i don't really graduate until december, but i'm done with classes, midterms and finals so that's close enough, right??...)

graduation selfies!!!

graduation day 2

they always have the best flowers during graduation!
my mom got a little carried away... (:
my grandparents were in utah so they were able to come which was extra special!
aren't they the cutest grandparents you have ever seen?!
this is terrible, but i did not get any pictures with my mom who was also in town, which was really special for me! she has sacrificed so many things to get me where i am today; a college graduate. and i will always be grateful for her example, dedication, love and support! she rocks!!!! my siblings were also in town, but they were knocked out on oxycodone and with cheeks about 3 times their normal size; or wisdom teethless. love them to death though. 

i think that's enough for now, but just one more pic that we took at church today. duck faces all around. love him.
