Roommate Reunion!!

My freshman year at BYU-Idaho I lived with 5 other girls. We were all pretty different, but we got along SO WELL. How many times do you hear about 5 girls living together for four months without one problem?? That was us. It has been three years since that Fall semester, but we all keep in touch and we met this past weekend for lunch. It was so fun to see each other and to catch up on our lives. We've all been busy from school, work, missions, marriages, and babies that is was great to find time together!! All but one of us was able to come, and it was a blast. We missed you, Jan!!


Jan, Lindsey, Jane, Mary Beth, Me, and Alyssa

After having lunch in Pocatello, we headed up to Rexburg to see more friends, and I couldn't help but take some pictures of the beautiful Rexburg temple.

A Post to Brag About my Husband

I married a stud.

This year he received not one, not two, but three scholarships! He also received a special grant from the government because of his major. He is working so hard taking 18 credit hours this semester, and participating so much in ROTC this year as he prepares for Advanced Camp at Ft. Lewis next summer.

And if all that wasn't enough, because of his grades and outstanding performance in ROTC, he was just selected to represent BYU at an Ethics Conference at West Point in New York in October. See? I told you. Stud.

CONGRATS, Mr. Smith!! We're so proud of you!!

Soakin up Summer

Summer is over and Fall is coming!! Harrison's family, and my sister came to celebrate Labor Day with us by watching movies, playing games, and having a picnic up in Provo Canyon. It was so fun to have them here!!
We also had a visit from my good friend Nicole and her cute little family. Her son, Wesley is only 4 months younger than Jack and it'll be fun to watch them grow up so close in age!! Although, there may be a few differences in size... Nicole and I have been best friends since we were 12.
We got married a month apart, and now we have baby boys at the same time!
When did we grow up?!
(And NO, we did not plan to match ourselves or the boys..ha!)

Apparently Jack needs to work on his manners...

Harrison has started a very busy semester of 18 credits, but he is so good to find time to play with us We love walking to a pond @BYU down the street from our house to feed these guys:

Who knew I could miss Provo so much??

Busy, busy, busy!

We're all together again - yay!! Jack acts like Harrison never left - he loves his daddy. Yesterday when Harrison left for school, Jack even started to cry.

We've moved into our new fabulous (fabulous to us, anyways) apartment! this is why it is better than our old apartment:
-It's above ground
-It's a block away from BYU so Harrison walks to school
-It has two bedrooms
-It has air conditioning
-It has counter space, cupboard space, a dishwasher, and a disposal
-Underground parking
-It has windows that can open AND close (we've really learned to appreciate the simple things in life)
We've also just bought a couch!! Our first major purchase...unless you include paying for Jack's baby bills, then it's our 2nd major purchase :) We love it!

More pictures to come soon, but here's little Jack on his first swing when we took him to the park the other day:
