Isn't it exciting?


When I found out a couple of months ago that Spencer and Sara were having a baby I was thrilled. While I was happy that they were having a baby, I was so thankful that both mother and baby were healthy. Knowing Sara's story really makes that a miracle. Sara and Spencer had their appointment on Friday to find out what they were having. I got a text message from them before we were to meet up at Laura's graduation saying something like you'll know what we are having by what we are wearing. Getting to the Marriott Center and seeing them in PINK was so exciting. I can't wait to be an aunt!


(I think all of us thought they were going to have a boy since we are all in blue)

It's fun to have someone else join the ranks of the graduated--now hopefully she can get a job. I've decided that graduation, like prom, is one of those let down moments. You've put all this hard work into it and somehow the two and a half hour wait to get a piece of paper seems anticlimactic and a little boring. Laura kept texting after she received her diploma, "can we leave?"


Saturday afternoon as I was driving home from Provo I got this message from my friend Jonny who was like I've just got Wicked tickets, do you want one of them? Do I want one? Are you kidding me? I stood in line for seven hours in the cold and came away empty handed--except for the cold I picked up. So to be handed a Wicked ticket out of the blue made my day.

The tickets we had were amazing. 10 row center. To be able to see the expressions on the faces of the actors was beyond compare. When Gelinda threw her wand off stage and instead of it landing off stage it hit her in the head, I could see them biting back the laughter. But no matter where I was in the theatre I would have LOVED the production. It was beyond belief. Defiantly in the top five of best musicals I've seen live and very close to that number one spot.

Congrats on the great news of becoming an aunt. SO fun to see a pic of your whole family. Congrats to Laura as well! I'm jealous you got to see Wicked. :)

Wicked is amazing, isn't it! I can't wait until ticket prices go way down and I can go again. By the way, Whitney Johnson is one of my favorite people ever, and Emily Sell was in my elementary, jr. high, and high school classes. She's so sweet! It was funny to look at your pictures and see both of them.
