W. For Whatevs

Obviously blogging more was NOT on my New Year's resolution list, I've been a slacker. And I don't even have a good excuse. I guess sometimes I think our lives are boring and nothing noteworthy has happened in the last few weeks, but then I get to thinking about all the little things and I remember that they're important too! So here are some little things that have happened recently that are probably blog-worthy...

1) Daniel got rejected from the University of Utah (hooray!) and Georgetown. Neither one was super surprising or super high on our list and that just means we'll have less options to choose from and that will hopefully make the choice a bit easier. Maybe. We're still waiting for a decision from the second Case Western program, Duke, and Wash U. We know we won't hear back from Duke until mid-March, so I guess we're really only anticipating Case and Wash U for now

2) We got a Roomba for Christmas and my mom mailed it out last week and it's my new favorite thing. I've barely been able to wait 24 hours before using it since we got it, it just makes me so happy! I'm still trying to figure out what to name it though (I have the tendency to name inanimate objects)

3) Mark and Ben are both out here this semester and it's so much fun to get together! On Friday we had an epic date night and yesterday we watched the Packers stomp the Falcons. I also like having them both out here because I get to try new recipes and let them try them out. So far my brownies have been a big hit, but tonight I attempted to make a two layer cake and FAILED miserably. I was able to salvage about 1/3 of it and I hope Ben likes it. The pieces we ate tasted pretty good

4) We have been incredibly blessed this semester to receive a ton of financial aid! I'm glad Daniel is so smart and can get awesome scholarships! We're also on our parents' health insurance and will get tax money back too, we're trying to be as frugal as possible because we know there are a lot of expenses coming up soon!

5) My wonderful father-in-law offered me a part-time job when I graduate! He wants to get a website up and running and asked if I would help with it. I don't know a whole lot about the components of a website, but I think they offer classes I can take on campus

We're so excited for what the future has in store for us, we just wish we could have a glimpse and at least see where we're moving to in a few months! Until then, we'll just hang in there and finish up the semester with as little senior-itis as possible!

Happy New Year!

Last night we celebrated 2011 with the east coast, then we went to bed before it was even midnight here. It's so refreshing to have a new year ahead of us and it's certainly going to be an exciting one!

Mostly we've spent this week watching all the football games, Daniel just can't turn away! It's been great having everyone together for the last time for at least a couple years, we've been sledding and eating awesome food and playing Wii games and we even made the Wisconsinite mecca to Lambeau Field. Everyone has left except me and Daniel, and we're looking forward to relaxing and enjoying time with Jeff and Kendra.

We fly back to Utah on Monday and school starts on Tuesday. It's crazy that this is our last semester, it seems like college just started! I didn't think I'd be able to finish is three years, but things are looking good and I'm so ready to be done! This will be Daniel's ninth semester, and adding a mission and internship means Daniel's ready to be done (with his undergrad, at least) too!

No med school updates for now, but we're expecting to hear back from a few other places in the next couple of weeks, we're excited to have more acceptances!

Happy holidays from the Lindsays!
