Girl's Night

Last night a few of us had a girl's night over at Jenny's house. All of the boys are out hiking, so we got together for dinner and a movie. Fun times! We ate tacos (always a favorite) and watched Sister Act 2. Watching the movie brought back some fun memories of high school and doing "Joyful, Joyful" in Buhler Singers. It was hard for me to not get up and do the dance along with the movie! Also, Jenny's apartment is covered with wedding magazines, since she is getting married in October. We had fun looking through the magazines and checking out what we all liked, even though Jenny is the only one getting married!

This weekend, Tiffany Buck and her two boys are coming up to hang out since Joe is hiking with the rest of the boys. I'm excited! I think we're going to go to the beach on Saturday, if the weather is nice enough. I need another good beach day before the summer is over!

Another exciting thing (to me, at least) is that my cousin, Ashley sent me a new picture of my baby cousins! There are three now-Elijah is 3, Andrew is 2 and Micah is a month and a half old! I was so excited to get a new picture, because I hadn't seen any new ones with all three of them. Check out the cuteness:

That's about it for now. Just a little update!

Well, it's March, so it's time for a new blog post. Things have been going really well lately. I've started taking an art class at the local community college once a week. I've never really been much of an artist, so this is a challenge for me. All of the other ladies in my class roll in their massive "art" suitcases and I just bring in 2 pencils, some paper, an eraser and a pencil sharpener. I'm obviously not a professional...yet. Ha! Another exciting thing is that I've begun to volunteer at the Cancer Council once a week. Today, I went in and organized a packet to send out to a woman who wants to put on a lunch to raise money for breast cancer. What a great thing! Also, I've been helping work on some things for upcoming Relay for Life's in the Sydney area. Cancer research is very important to me, so I'm blessed to get to help out in Australia!
In February, I went to my first Australian wedding. My friends, Kim and Jonno, got married! The wedding was outside overlooking the ocean, which was great, I just wish it hadn't of been so hot! The reception was wonderful! We had a sit down dinner for about 200 people! It was so fun to get to be part of their special day and also catch up with some many friends from around Australia who had come in for the wedding!

Overall, some great things are happening in Australia and I'm lucky to be a part of them! :-)
