good things.

i haven't done a very personal post in a while
and so many good things have been happening in the past couple weeks
i really feel i need to share how grateful i am :]

- my darling sisterinlaw brittany was accepted to brigham young university, provo.
this is exciting because i just graduated from there last year so am terribly biased,
and it was her top choice and ultimate dream.
and it gives the mr and i an excuse to road trip out there to visit her and old friends.

- my bestest friend miss marisa is home from her 18 month lds mission to san diego.
i had no idea she going home last week,
and was so terribly excited and surprised when she called.
it sounds like she had such a wonderful experience
and did such a great job serving the people of san diego
and i couldn't be more proud of her :]
or excited that i have my bff back.

- my craziest sister glenn mae is all settled back at home in california,
and after only a week of searching, is employed!
i miss having her up in portland town with me
but things are working out for her much better in california
and i am soo glad.

- and speaking of jobs,
my mother dearest is once again employed at the oakland a's coliseum
all trained and ready and waiting for baseball season to start!
this has been a very big deal for her and i am so happy and proud of her.

- and last but most certainly not least,
my dear grandma went in for surgery this past monday to remove some ovarian/uterine cancer
and is now at home recovering with her family with not a speck of cancer in sight!

life for both the mr and i and our families has been pretty crazy the past six months
but i am so happy to see that things are working out well for all of us.
to say that we are blessed is such an understatement
and i am so grateful :]
