No I’m not dead, just un-commited lately.  But one of many of my New Year’s goals is to come back to blogging more regularly.  But to catch up without going into novel-type length I’ll stick with bullets and pictures.

  • I have offically proposed my thesis!!!! Now before anyone gets too excited this is only the first step, but my defense is right aroud the corner, meaning….I pretty much have to just pass my class this semester and I will receive my master’s.  SUPER EXCITED!!
  • Frank and I went to Washington State University (GO COUGS!!) for the Apple Cup game, but mostly it was an excuse to show him where I went to school and a chance to visit with friends.
  • Frank also gave me THE BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!!!  A picture to come once I take it (any guesses?)
  • My extended family made the trip out here this winter which was a very nice change of pace.  It is so fun to show people the real tough life of Wyoming (hehehe).
  • I am currently working on finishing my applications to internships.  I have narrowed it down to four, which seems financially doable ( keep your fingers crossed)
  • I started running again (thank goodness, I am maintaining that it was the fault of my thesis).  And I am hoping for a pretty light spring semester and with any luck hopefully an early summer half-marathon.  Any suggestions?
  • Got two AMAZING cookbooks for christmas, of which I know you will see some highlighted dishes once I try them.
  • Two rodeos to attend in the next two weeks.  I am loving the enviroment and I have actually been back on a horse twice within this fall.  It’s really fun and a much more peaceful and exciting experience than I remember from my childhood.
  • Am doing a bit of undercover motivation to get Frank to a bareback riding school this spring.  It’s something he’s always wanted to try and I just know he’ll love it and the entire experience will be so fun for the two of us.  It’s been a long time since supporting someone else is important and exciting to me.

And pictures……

Frank and I one Halloween. He went as Indiana Jones and I was Elmo

Frank and I in Spokane WA. I think he really enjoyed himself and it was so fun to visit WSU.

Frank at the Celestial Seasonings Tour. It was one of the best date ideas ever.
