Back by popular demand!

Okay, so I'm not sure I can say popular demand, but alas an update to the blog. Much has happened since I last posted, just haven't gotten to time to put anything up. I'll start with the oldest event and post some pictures and lead up to the most recent event. In the beginning of March, Brittney was officially inducted into the nursing honors society, Sigma Theta Tau. Basically that means she's a genius and is in the top of her nursing class. I was very proud of her.

Next, during March we participated in a Hindu festival at the Krishna temple in Spanish Fork. Not sure how large the Indian population is in Spanish Fork, but we really enjoyed ourselves. Basically, they hold this "color festival" every year to celebrate the onset of spring. They burn a huge effigy of a witch and then the throwing of the powder begins. Here is the result with before and after pictures.

All clean...

Oh the insanity!
It felt as if we were in the middle of a war zone

As you can tell, we had a blast. Those same colors you see in the pictures were coming out of our noses for a week, but we enjoyed it immensely. Next, at the end of March we celebrated Brittney's birthday and then we celebrated mine at the beginning of April. Here are some pictures.

One of Brittney's new favorite movies...Dan in Real Life

Next, on April 24th and 25th, BYU held its Graduation ceremonies and believe it or not, I have finally graduated. Just for the record, I did NOT graduate in English, but rather English Language (or Linguistics for that matter). If you don't know the difference, I will be glad to explain. I also got a minor in Business Management. I loved my time at BYU and wouldn't trade it in for anything. However, with that said, I have decided to forgo law school for a year and apply next year. In the meantime, I am looking to start up a business (more details to be disclosed later) and work for a year. Brittney, meanwhile, has another year left and is attending school during Spring term. She will be going to the Utah state prison and doing clinicals there - not because she has broken the law. By the way, thank you to all who have sent cards and other mementos. Here are some pics from graduation.

Finally, May 2nd was our 2 year anniversary. We celebrated by going to a restaurant in Bountiful called The Mandarin, which I would highly recommend, watched an improv comedy show, and stayed at the Little America (complements of Nana and Forrest - thank you). We have loved being married the past two years and can't wait to see what the future may hold.
