Sam's Birthday!!!!

June 16 was Sam's 24th birthday!! So, the day started out the night before after he picked me up from work with a trip to Broulim's for breakfast food! His breakfast of choice? Hash browns, sausage, eggs and orange juice of course! Then we each had class, and I got ready that morning like I was going to study at the school early, but really I had all my studying done! So I dropped him off, and went to get his birthday present. Don't worry, I wasn't a procrastinator! I knew what I wanted to get him forever, but couldn't buy it yet because it would show up on the online account so he would know what it was early!! Then I went back to our apartment and blew up some balloons, put up some streamers, and wrapped his present. Then off to my Anatomy lab!

We came back from class together, and he was surprised! That was my goal, so I was happy. :) We took a few silly pictures, and he opened his presents.

Then we had cake! Well, pie actually. He really likes a cream cheese pie with cherry pie filling, and it was super easy to make. I wasn't sure how it would taste, but it was actually super good! (Notice my AWESOME basketball shorts? Sam got them, a couple balls, and a nice flash drive from the lost and found sale at the school for WAY cheap that day. And they have POCKETS!!! Yay!)

Notice the giant ball of light? That's what happens when you have to use an entire package of 24 candles! :)

After we ate pie, played around with the balloons, and changed into sweats (only in Rexburg is it FREEZING and rainy in June :)) we went over to Porter Park and played basketball. I think I made maybe 3 baskets... But it was fun!

After my basketball we went to Gringo's Mexican Restaurant on the corner by our apartment. Man, we sure look like pigs in this picture! The raspberry lemonade was seriously SO GOOD! It had raspberries at the bottom, my favorite! We couldn't stop drinking it! We had lunch for the next day too, so it was worth it. :)

And here's the birthday boy with his food. Mmmm....

After we ate dinner we were so full! We went back to our apartment and watched the movie "Family Man." I'd never seen it, but I have to say it was pretty good. Good moral! Family first. :) He says he had a great day, and I know I did!

:) :) :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!!! :) :) :)

Nursing Program Results

On Friday I got an email from the head of Nursing that I needed to pick up my results letter Monday through Thursday of this week. So naturally I went the first possible minute I could. Sam dropped me off at the Clarke building and sat in the parking lot while I went down to the office. There were tons of other people waiting in line, so as I was talking to the girl in front of me she mentioned that there were 110 people going for 30 positions.

I finally got up to the desk and gave them my name, and they couldn't find my letter for a while... So that freaked me out! But I finally got the letter and went back out to the car to open it. I couldn't open it since my hands were shaking so much, so I made Sam do it. Then I read it, and I didn't get in for Fall semester. So I was bummed, but I really tried not to cry. :)

I was doing pretty good until we got home, and Sam said, "You don't have to try to be strong." So then it just all came out. He sat there and held me while I cried, and it was so perfect. He didn't try to fix any problems, he just let me get it all out.

Then I took him to class, and when I came back I called my mom. I thought I was good emotionally, but when I told her I started to cry again. How embarrassing. :) But she's my mom so she just listened.

After I hung up with my mom I decided to just sleep since I had class that afternoon. I slept for about 2 hours, and when I woke up I felt so much better! I picked Sam up from class and we talked more about it and figured out what I'm going to take next semester, how I'm going to meet with the head of the department to ask questions about what I need to do to get in, but also get my name circulated around the department. So I was bummed for about 2 hours, but since then I've been fine! And I really can say that I am happy with the decision that has been made.

I took Sam to work later that afternoon after we had talked and figured some things out, and when I came back I had flowers waiting by my door! Thanks Mom!!!

Then an hour later I went to work and told my friend, Sally, that I didn't get into the nursing program and she was disappointed for me, but said "Oh no... If you didn't get in, then I have no hope."

So I've already applied to the program for Winter semester, and I'm hoping that my GPA and my meeting with the department head improve my chances of getting in for Winter! We'll just have to see!

Funny Quote

The other day Sam and I were walking down the street, and he started singing "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas." (that's the song he always has stuck in his head, so he's always singing it) We started talking about why that song was always in his head, and he said, "If Santa was real, I'd be a really good candidate because I have the Christmas spirit all year long!" I laughed for a long time... I think it was funnier in person though.

Anyway, Sam's birthday was yesterday and there are pictures to come!
