busiest of weeks!

This week has been cuh-razy!! I think I'm averaging 4.5 to 5 hours of sleep a night this week and here's why:

Ryan turned 33 on Monday! Unfortunately this is just about the only picture I have to prove it. We had family and some good friends over, it was a fun night.


We also had first days of school. Gwen's been in school for two weeks, but Ryan, Drake and I just barely started.

Naturally Drake had to wear an ASU shirt to school on his first day so he could blend in with 84% of ASU's population. Honestly, I can't believe how many people wear ASU clothing at school. It's everywhere!! And it's cool and all, you know high school morale and stuff, but still it's kinda weird too.
You know what else is weird? Girls totally get all skanked out to go to school there! Not even kidding today I saw a girl wearing a tank top as a dress!! What would she have done if she dropped something and had to bend over? Why would you dress to look so dumb when you're going to a university? Okay, I'll hop off my soap box now.

Here are my two cute boys on their first school day. Drake also wanted to wear his Yoda birthday pin. Silly boy. He goes to preschool at ASU with me. Well I don't go to preschool, but go to ASU, and he goes with me. You know what I mean. And good news is he loves it! He also has been taking naps there even though he tells me he doesn't like that part. But it's pretty neat because for example today he forgot to grab his lunch box from the counter on our way out the door. So at lunch time I just picked up lunch at the student union and walked over to the preschool to drop it off for him and steal some hugs and kisses before I headed back to class. It's fun being able to just go over and see him whenever I can.

And here I am, geared up to go back to school after a SEVEN year break. And holy smokes, it's hard to get back into the swing of it. I've been reading and re-reading like crazy. And even as I'm writing this, I'm feeling guilty for putting off reading and my first writing assignment. Ho hum, I guess I'll get to work now. This marks the end of my social life.

Busy, busy, busy. Happy late birthday Ryan! That cake looks yummy. I'm glad you're so close to Drake. :) Good luck with your schooling.

Congrats on getting back to school. You'll do great!! I can talk all day about how stupid 90% of the girls look at ASU. I did my undergrad there...I'm sure Vinny is tired of hearing about it too. This was a daily hot topic with me. Have you seen Uggs and mini skirts yet? in Arizona?? in the summer?? Yes, they were everywhere!

You look so hot...totally fit in with the college crowd ( not the skanky ones). How is it that you are cuter now with two kids in college than I was 8 years ago in college!

Good for all of you -- I can't wait to hear all about school. You are going to be great. I remember the first weeks of any semester being the worst....you'll get into a swing pretty soon. :)

Quite the contrast from BYU to ASU huh?

Been thinking about you girl! Hope you are getting the hang of school and still getting a little free time. Yikes, I know (sorta) how consuming it can be! Take care :)
