oh happy day

i have surprisingly had an extremely productive day today. 
a rarity for this girl. 
i completed half of my to-do list...
just in time for ben and i to watch a little sytycd before he heads to basketball and i begin the second half of my list.
picked up cap and gown? check.
completed a bazillion flash cards for the next 7 days? check.
corrected my mailing address so my diploma doesn't get mailed to a stanger? big check.

is it weird that i almost got a little emotional while picking up tickets for graduation?
i'm really going to miss my time at byu-idaho.
i have fallen in love with this city, this campus, and all of the amazing teachers that i have had. 
this is the place where i met my best friends. 
this is the place that allowed me to fall in love with my husband. 
it's the place where i learned the hard way the ins and outs of driving in the snow.
where i gained my independence and learned how to live outside the comfort of the home i grew up in.
it's a place where my testimony was able to grow on a daily basis.
where i was able to attend class daily and soak up knowledge constantly. and where i was able to discover a area of study that i fell in love with.
it's where i discovered horkley's and rigby lake.
i miss california on a daily basis but i truly do love idaho. 
and while we are not moving far, a piece of my heart will always be in rexburg, idaho.
ok that last part was a bit cheesy. but i don't care.

9 days till i'm a college grad.
but ben and i are oh so excited for clare bear and kevin to arrive. 
we have the whole weekend mapped out.
it's gonna be a party!

happy wednesday!

A huge congrats to you. I felt the same way when I graduated. From everything to missing CA to starting life as a's all very familiar. I take every chance I can to go back, and it's different not being a student. Rexburg is definitely a special place. I think everyone who has the opportunity to go there is so incredibly lucky. I still express gratitude to Heavenly Father for the education I received there and for all of the faithful tithing payers who made it possible!
