How Do I Say This....

I'm pregnant!

Oh, that wasn't too hard. Doran and I are expecting our first little baby November 21st, 2011. That makes me 14 weeks pregnant tomorrow! We are both so excited and so grateful for this little bundle of joy. We find out whether it is a boy or girl in 4 weeks! That is so exciting! We are sooo excited to be able to call it a he or she. Calling it a fruit every week (This week it is a lemon) is getting pretty old. Haha. We found out on St. Patrick's Day, when we were only 4 weeks pregnant! Seeing a positive sign on the test after seeing so many negatives for a couple of months is a good feeling. Look forward to a lot of updates about this wonderful news! GENDER IN 4 WEEKS! Make your predictions people! Doran thinks it is a boy. I really don't know though. Thanks for being patient with my no posts for 2 months. I've been pretty sick. But now I'm feeling good and jumping back into the blogging world. Talk to you soon!!

Graduation Day!!

I graduated from BYU on April 22, 2011 with a degree in Sociology! I loved college so much and loved all of the experiences I had there. I can't say enough good things about my college experience! It was amazing!

On that day my mom and dad, Michael, Sarah, Lucy, Heather, Ryan, Blake, Carter, Matthew, and my Grandma all came down! Also my in-laws and my sister in-law Carissa and her three boys, Eli, Garret, and Logan, also came down. We had a great BBQ out behind our apartments. It was a beautiful day! I didn't graduate until 5:00 that night, and we were the last college to walk, so I had to sit there forever before walking. We went to The Cheesecake Factory that night for dinner and didn't get seated until about 10:30! Sorry family. It was amazing thought. I went to the Cheesecake Factory the night I graduated from high school too. I love the symbolism in that!

Graduation was awesome! I wasn't expecting it to be as big of a deal as it turned out to be, but I love that it turned into a party and I am grateful for everything I have been able to accomplish in the past 4 years!

I have a picture with the BYU Broadcasting sign because that is where I have worked for the past 4 years! It pretty much put me through college.

And so did my parents. :)

Once Upon a Time...

Doran loves to read. He's pretty much obsessed with it. He probably goes through a book a week. It takes me about 2 months. I just never find the time. However, I have been reading more and would like to read a bunch of classics this summer that I've never read before. So I took the big step and got a library card for the Provo Library. I usually have Doran just check out my books for me, but hopefully I'll go more now that I have my own card. Here's to reading!

PS: I could have chosen between the adult library card with a picture of the library on it. Nope. I chose the frog. Without even thinking twice about it.

Be Like Unto a Child.....

One thing I love about my marriage is that we are not afraid to have fun and act like children. One night in April, Doran wanted to build a fort. FUNNEST. THING. EVER! We basically covered our whole living room with blankets and pillows, using a broom pole to hold up the middle. Doran is really good at forts. It also made me grateful for our wedding gifts because we got tons of blankets! I love forts.

I am ashamed.....

Name that movie! Jacques from Finding Nemo (The little shrimp like red man in the tank). Good times....

Anyways, I really am ashamed! It has been far too long since I've blogged. I'm currently at work so I have no pictures to post, but later today I WILL post like tons of updates on our lives. There is some exciting stuff to post. So look forward to:

1. Forts
2. Graduation
3. Library Cards
4. Exciting News

I love you, whoever you are who reads this. I promise I won't disappoint this afternoon. I just feel like I need pictures to make a real post. Sorry. Until later!
