The Test is Over and March is Here!

Monday: I went to work a little early and Ben started his big Poli Sci 328 midterm.  He was really stressing out about it.  I had classes and worked some more.  Ben and I went home to eat dinner then I dropped him back off at the library to work on his test for a few more hours.  I worked on some homework and went to FHE.  When Ben's brain hurt, I went to pick him up and it was snowing HUGE flakes.  Easily the biggest snowflakes I have ever seen.

Tuesday: It was still snowing! We had a campus forum by Dr. Ben Carson.  It was such a great forum.  We have had really good ones this year.  Last year I remember having some boring and not so stellar forums but this year's have been phenomenal.  Classes were good and work was fine.  Ben was still stressing about his test.

Wednesday: I loved my multicultural education class (as usual) and after class I wrote an email to my professor telling him how much I enjoy the class.  After my morning classes, Ben and I came home and ate some lunch.  I made muddie buddies for my visiting teachees and Anna while Ben worked on TA stuff.  Ben went to class again and I talked with Becca :) After Ben's class we came home and ate a yummy dinner that I made from a new recipe.  I went to class and Ben went to institute and life was great.

Thursday: Happy March! That means my birthday is soon :) Ok, not until the end of the month but I really love my birthday and celebrate it at least for a week (but usually a lot longer than that :).  It was my grandpa's birthday as well as Ben's nephew's. AND Ben and I have been dating for 5 months.  Crazy huh? My dance class got out super early, so I went for a run before getting Ben from class.  We went to his apartment and were able to talk to his roommates for a while before heading up to Lehi to go to Buffalo Wild Wings.  In Advertising, we are a pretend agency and Buffalo Wild Wings are our client so we had to go as a group for some research.  The food was really good and we had a lot of fun with our group.  After dinner, we headed up to Salt Lake and went to Temple Square for a little bit before it closed.  Then we went to Mike and Amy's and spent the night there.

Friday: I woke up earlier than I usually do thanks to three, sweet, wonderful, cute little boys :) Ben and I helped Amy with the boys.  She took Bradley to the doctor's while Ben and I played blocks and watched a show with Aaron and Max.  After Amy got back, we took the two older boys to play in the snow.  We brought them in for snack and finished watching the show we had started earlier.  Amy came home with Bradley from another errand they ran and then we all went to the library for the boys to get new books to read.  We came home and ate lunch and everyone took naps (except Amy because she is amazing and a Supermom).  Later that night, we had a birthday party for Max.  Gordy, Brooke and Anna came up and we had pizza and a delicious cake.  After putting the boys down for bed, we all played a game and then everyone headed back down to Provo.  I was exhausted by the time we got home.
 The boys had very chocolatey faces after snack.  

Saturday: Since Friday was our fun day, Saturday was a work day.  Laundry was done.  Homework and a project were completed by 11:30 am.  Then I started a take home mid-term that was poorly worded and confusing but after lunch, I finished it and it only took me 2.5-3 hours total.  That night, Ben and I both felt kind of blah and we didn't really want to do anything, but we decided we should.  So, we went to DI and Big Lots just to look around.  Afterwards we got some pomegranate frozen yogurt that was really good.

Sunday: Church was lovely :) We had a Relief Society lesson on temples that was wonderful.  Ben and I had one of my favorite dinners ever: Chicken Angel Hair Pasta.  It is a crock pot meal so it was nice and ready when we got home from church.  After dinner we watched a CES fireside by Elder Cook that was really good.  Then That Darn Cat came on BYUtv after so we watched that as well :)
