Well you guys...I did it. I am no longer a student at Utah State University. I knew this day was coming, and it makes me sad. It was a hard decision to make, but the want/need to stay in Utah Valley was greater than the want/need for Utah State/Logan, not to mention getting a music degree is pretty tough online. I know I will miss Utah State. I have soooo many memories there. That was a brand new life for me, and I learned so many valuable lessons and made so many even more valuable friends. Of course, the friends we'll keep in touch with. But for now, I reluctantly turn toward the Wolverine and convince myself that what I am doing is right. Yay for a new year of school and excitement and OH YEAH!! My husband Scotty got accepted into the...
UVU AVIATION PROGRAM
...so that will be really fun that we get to go to school together. Yay for my husband, yay for us. Have a nice day!
Less than 7 days until we get on that plane headed out for West Virginia!!!
...Two Weeks til we go on Vacation to West Virginia/Virginia/Washington DC!!
...Two Months until Scotty finally, really, and officially starts school at UVU!! (I only say two months because it is still only slightly more than one month until school starts and we can't really claim the one month just yet.)
...6 months until my birthday!
...One Year until Scotty has another birthday!
How fun is that, you guys??
Oh, I also realize that I have not yet put up pictures from the 4th of July. I've been a bit spacey lately. Sorry.
Notice how I didn't put any promises up there like, "I promise I'll do better next time" or "I promise I'll put the pictures up as soon as I get off work" ? That's because I don't think I'll really be good about keeping those promises. Better just keep me where I am with no promises and that'll help me be a better woman of my word.
Divine Comedy. So funny! But no, I am not a big Harry Potter nerd. I do find them good and I'll watch the movies. But I didn't read the books until last year. Expelliarmus! or...however you spell that.
Parking on the side of the road to watch the Stadium of Fire fireworks.
Picnics at Nelson's Grove.
Legalized aeriel fireworks. (Yes!)
Sounds of firework at midnight.
Last minute Walmart trip.
Did I happen to mention fireworks???
Just to let everyone know, I absolutely LOVE the Fourth of July, or I guess as I should correctly call it, Independence Day. I love the unity that it brings into our communities, whether big or small. I love the patriotic colors, the sense of belonging and friendship, the standing ovation and respect for our Military, the sizing up each marching band throughout the parade, haha. I love the popsicles, the grilling, the fact that everyone goes outside for the Fourth. I love the stars and the music. I love Ray Charles. I especially love the FiReWoRkS!!!! And here's for a shout out:
I have the most wonderful husband in the world who puts up with my silly, almost childish, love and fascination of fireworks. I had to beg him to take me out to see the fireworks from the Stadium of Fire. I sat outside every night all weekend long just to listen to the fireworks around our house. The best part was the constant popping and cackling of the aerial fireworks coming from every direction. It was awesome!
You know, despite the fact that it got a little windy and wet on the Fourth, I'm really glad it rained. It was just a little extra precaution that nothing will catch on fire. ...for the most part.
Pictures will be forth-coming. When I decide to upload everything onto my computer from my camera. I will also be making another awesome Fourth of July Fireworks Fun video like I did a couple years ago! This may be an annual thing. That's how much I love fireworks :) So for now, enjoy this video that I'm uploading and then soon you will see the one from this year! P.S. Does anyone have any suggestions for a patriotic song to do for my Firework video this year? I'm thinking Ray Charles..."America the Beautiful." Classic. Oh so classic.
