Then and Now

What happened? I look nothing like I did when I was little iddy person. I guess that's normal. BUT, the man that I love, has not changed a bit since he was a young lad. All you have to do is resize the picture below to a larger size and voila, adult version of baby Will. Okay okay, it's not that extreme, but still, he looks no different. Maybe he has a few crows feet and some beach balls for arms, but that is about it. He ages beautifully. It's not cool and I'm not okay with it. I need to find out his secret. Once I find out, I'll let y'all in on the secret. He was sure cute. I want a Will Jr. Don't worry, we are not naming our future child Will Jr. AND, I'm not pregnant.

In a weeeeeeek..

I shall be done with this semester of school. Can I get a hallelujah?! Thank you very much. I'm lacking in creativity with this blog. Because all I do, all day, everyday is study Anatomy or Microbiology. And, I guarantee nobody wants to hear about what I'm learning. No really, your dinner will come right back up to say hello, promise! I love what I learn, it does not gross me out the slightest. I am feeding you full of horse pile. I get grossed out occasionally, but like I said, I will not disgust you with details. All I'm trying to say is, I am done with this semester in a week.

I'm not sure what the plan is for the future, which isn't always my favorite feeling. I am a planner. Plain and simple. Except it's not so simple when my plan goes haywire. Honestly, I'm so lucky I married a feller that is not the planner type. He goes with the flow which has helped me relax a little. I never thought I was a planner kind of girl until I married Will. But, that's been my biggest struggle lately, is just relying on the Lord that my plan will work it's way out in due time (aka the Lord's time). All I have to do is my part by being good and working hard. So, that's what I've been doing.

Life is great! I'm also grateful for the wonderful family Will and I have. We both were raised in strong, loving families. I love the sky. I love the comfy laz-ee boy I'm currently sitting in. I love getting to study right dab next to my husband every night. I love Anatomy (even if I can't wait for it to be over). I love our living a healthy lifestyle. I love chapstick/lotion. I love singing especially when I'm alone. I love the feeling of a car with a full belly of gas. I love a Marci with a full belly of mandarins. I love a lot of things. But, most of all I love the gospel. It brings true happiness into my life.

I'm in like with this Conference weekend

BEWARE: Explosion of Ruby in this post. Ruby is Joseph (Will's brother) and Jen's baby.

Will and I got to spend a short, but sweet Conference weekend with Will's hospitable parents, Joseph, Jen, Ruby and their dog Daisy. I'd say we had a pretty good time. Just lounging around, eating lots of delicious food, as well as being spiritually fed. We listened to some amazing talks that touched me personally and I'm grateful we got to spend the weekend with family.

One of the most fun memories was my mother-in-laws new waffle cone maker. The boys went off to Priesthood while the ladies stayed back. We learned how to make waffle cones and they turned out pretty good. Crunchy to the taste. It was a great weekend and Ruby entertained all of us the entire time. You'd think she'd get tired of being so cute, well, she doesn't. We brought our new camera with us, not expecting to take too many pictures, just enough to bask in the moment. Well, Will and I got a little carried away. We set the camera to high speed continuous mode, because Ruby is currently in the "I cannot stay put if my life depended on it" stage, so it was impossible to get a clear shot if we hadn't changed the setting. We took over 200 pictures of Ruby. She is a star. Here are a few out of the 200 we took:

She's a hoot.
