For those who don't already know...

Dustin was baptized last Saturday! It was probably one of the BEST days in my life. Just looking at these pictures makes me want to relive that day all over again...

Dustin and Tyler Niebuhr
Tyler was awesome and flew in for two days from a TDY in Spain to baptize Dustin. We were so happy it worked out!

Lily and Cade (our favorite kids)

Brother and Sister Herndon
Brother Herndon gave an amazing confirmation on Sunday

Sister Lloyd and Sister Sloan
They also participated in the program with a beautiful musical number

We are so grateful for the Herndon's, sister missionaries, and Niebuhr family for all the hard work they put into the baptism and for all the discussions they participated in. We have SO much love for them. We are also thankful for all who came and supported us (65 ward members! and MANY MANY more in spirit) We love you all and will be forever grateful!

sick, sick, sick.

I hate being sick. And of course I have to catch a cold right before the weekend! And a BIG and IMPORTANT weekend at that! If you don't know what I am talking about, you will shortly find out :) But let me tell you, it's good.
So anyway...here I am on my deathbed (okay, so I may be a little dramatic) and all I want to do is lay around and watch The Bachelor. But I don't have any new episodes in my que. It's a big bummer.
SPEAKING of The Bachelor!!! (are you watching??) Here is my theory... I always pick out a girl I want to win and then miraculously she makes it to the final two! Only to NOT be picked and I am totally blindsided. So here is what I think the producers do: They purposely highlight one girl the WHOLE season and make it look like she is THE ONE, then show negative things about another girl, who the guy ends up picking! So this season I have chosen Kacie B. as my favorite, but because of my theory, I predict Courtney to win.
Any thoughts???

Look what I made today...

I went to jewelry club and with the help of Shawn, designed and made earrings and a necklace

The big orange bead is an Asian-looking fish :)

I also made fresh guacamole (YUM!)

Hope you all had a great Friday! YAY for the weekend!

I haven't been on here in awhile....oops...but my goal for this year is to try and post once a week. We shall see how that works out.
But in the mean time, to catch you up from my last post, in November we went to Malta for Thanksgiving and in December after I finished up the semester, we took a little vaca to Montana and Utah for Christmas and New Years. We had a GREAT time! I put pictures up of both of these trips on Facebook so take a look if you haven't already.
Now we are back in Italy for the next nine months. Wewill sadly be leaving here in September, but we have yet to find out where to. We could get an assignment as early as February, so I will keep you posted.
So I have been terribly bored since coming back. The weather is cold and school doesn't start for another two weeks. My house is the only one that is benefiting from this predicament.
Also, my nails. I bought some new polish in the states and have been experimenting. Here are a few pics of what I did tonight:

OPI French Quarter for Your Thoughts and CoverGirl Disco Dazzle

Love it!

Hopefully we have exciting things happening soon cuz I am not sure how much more down-time I can handle! I think I need to plan a trip...
