Today is a great day.....for three big reasons!!

1. Blake and I came home to some very exciting news today.....
Blake got an email today from the BYU Accounting School saying: HE'S IN!!! We are so thrilled. I'm so proud of Blake. He's worked really hard to get into the program and it all paid off. He'll start the Accounting program this fall.

2. We sold our contract. We put it online a couple of weeks ago and several couples have been coming to look at it but today someone actually wanted to buy it! What a relief!

3. Blake and I went to Joann fabric and bought some material and essential sewing supplies to start my newest (and only second) sewing project. I've decided that tonight I'm going to forget I'm a student and sew my little heart out!

The other day I was feeling slightly overwhelmed with this semester and so in an effort to relieve some stress I decided to make a countdown to graduation paper chain. It started out equal on both sides but has now taken the shape of a hangman game. Each morning the first thing I think about is taking off a link. It really has helped me keep life in perspective. YAY FOR PAPER CHAINS!!!!
