I forgot one quick story.
I had a final yesterday (Thursday) at 3 PM.
I stayed up all night studying for it.
I worked the next day, and left work around 1:30
I planned on studying for my final.
I arrive at the school,
Lolly gag,
buy a christmas present at the bookstore,
Arrive at the couch in front of my class at 2PM.
One hour til test time.
Kid from class walks out of classroom,
"LINDSEY! What are you doing, why aren't you taking the final??!"
"Because it's not til 3?"
"No it started at 1:30"
Bad words run through my head as I panic.
I didn't believe him until someone else came out of class..
"Lindsey, did you take the final?"
WOW. who does that. I almost missed it entirely.
Nice teacher let me take it still.
Sometimes I'm a danger to myself.


So Happy today because...
School's out for Winter! (although i wish it said Summer there, I'll take a break now)

I will be and aunt soon... Yeah for Tressa and Kody

Tomorrow is Saturday so I can sleep in until 10 or maybe 11...
(that's right I said eleven, I'm tired)

Just thinking- I love my dad

And my mom

Basketball ups and downs

This week has been a roller coaster in the basketball world. They played BYU on Wednesday at home and won! it was the most intense game and SO much fun. It was nuts. SOOO many people were there they ended up locking the doors so that no more students could get in. It was jammed packed so some people didn't have seats. We ended up scalping some tickets so my sis and her husband could get in.
Jared played amazing- he always does. It amazes me how high he can jump and how great he is. After we went out to dinner at Ruby Tuesday's with the fam where this happened..


Then on Saturday they played st Mary's and lost. It was a tough loss to swallow since it broke a 37 game winning streak at the Spectrum. But, losses happen- even though they suck. Jared once again played great.

We are looking forward to being done with school and for Christmas break and Christmas!

Hooray for the holidays!

SOOO bored

Wow, class can be a drag. Especially when every other professor cancelled class today EXCEPT mr. Roper. GAG. So here I am.. in class.. but not technically in class. I'm avoiding reality.

Well.. basketball is well underway. It's been a sad start to the season with a one point loss to utah and a 3? point loss to a school in boston. Jared scored his career high 27 points against Utah which was pretty dang cool. He also has been a rebounding machine.

Our Dog.. LEAH... aka the BEAST.. has been keeping us busy and entertained. For instance, one night while Jared was gone I had her sleeping in bed with me so I wouldn't be scared.. BAD IDEA. She decided she was hungry in the middle of the night, so she wandered out to the kitchen for some Sugar Cookies (which were really delicious so I can see why she was craving them at 2AM). I woke up with a heart attack.. I heard pans banging, plates clashing and every other sort of mayhem imaginable... My reaction, " OHHHHH crud! someones in my house!!" Panic panic panic.

Dumb dog.

She also likes to find random food and eat them.. For instance, while talking on the phone to my mother she managed to find a beef stroganoff package, open it, and sprinkle it around the house. Love it when my house smells like Stroganoff.

She also ate a half cube of butter last night, wrapper and all. She might have high cholesterol.

THANKSGIVING is this week. So thrilled. Love to eat until I'm sick. Love it.

Thats all.

Love Lindsey

So it's been quite a while since I posted last. We have had a lot going on. I started my new job back in June and I am really loving it and really busy with it. It makes me think hard everyday and I actually feel like I'm finally catching on.. phew. I work in the budgeting department at Logan Regional hospital. We create different budgets for different things, its been a great learning experience as I'm finishing up school. I'm on track to graduate in the Spring and I absolutely can NOT wait! It will be such a relief.

Jared has been in full swing with Basketball. They started practicing last week and their first game is on Friday the 30th! (I can't believe it's already here.. tis the season!) Jared works hard everyday at practice and school and we're hoping he stays healthy throughout the whole season. He was recently picked for WAC first team- preseason. I thought it was a pretty cool recognition- He's just hoping that that's how it ends up.. haha. He's also what I call Utah State's poster boy (haha) He's on the magnets that have the schedules on them- it's a sweet little action shot.

Here is the action shot!

WE are so excited for basketball. It's going to be a party.

Hope all is well with everyone :)

2 months....

SOOO in the past 2 month a lot of great things have happened. Jay... I would like you to know that this post is for you because you keep pestering me :)

We finished Basketball season which ended on a bitter sweet note. Its nice to see Jared every once in a while too.. i guess :) ... The boys ended up with 30 wins which is a school record, but lost in the big dance to Marquette... I cried. Jared ended up fouling with less than a minute to play and we ended up losing by 1 tiny point. It was really sad, but you couldn't help but to be proud of the boys and all of their accomplishments.

We finished school for the semester! HOORAY! Jared has to start summer school next month but he sure is enjoying having the month of may off. He started landscaping for his dad on Monday which gives him something to do, and to make some extra money.

We went to the closing banquet for basketball where Jared received a couple of great awards... The one I was most shocked at was for being on the Academic recognition list... who knew that could happen?? haha.. You're welcome Jared.

We found out we're going to be an aunt and uncle.. so thrilled!

We went fishing in Manila with Jareds best friend Jeremy and his girlfriend Teresa. We stayed at the Catron house where they took great care of us. We went fishing everyday and ended up catching quite a few! I even used a fly rod without hooking anyone but a fish! haha.. who knew that could happen too?

We celebrated both of Jared's grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. It was so neat to see BOTH of them celebrate it. Congratulations Grandma and Grandpa Keller and Grandma and Grandpa Quayle!

And last but not least we're moving this weekend to a house! Not our own, unfortunately, but we're renting it for a year.. i love it, it's so nice!

I think that's all for now... I'll post pictures later but my camera cord is packed...

My posters I made. Ken loves JQ 21 :)
Jared's ultimate fans.. love their undies.
What an exciting couple of weeks. To start it off... they took first place in the WAC. Then, they took first place in the WAC tournament. Now, we're off to Boise for some NCAA MADNESS!! I'm so excited.

Quail failures, plantar Fascitis, and life.

Sad to say-- our quail never hatched. And for those of you who thought i'm pregnant, its definitely a no. We were actually incubating quail eggs in our apartment to have as pets. I think jared will probably order more- I was so bummed when they didn't hatch.

A couple of updates-- USU proved not to be invincible in their recent losses to Boise and St Marys- it was sad but its okay-- they're surviving. The boise game happened to fall on valentines, so me and a couple girls (a wife, a fiance and a girlfriend) all went to the game. the drive was long- survived with only 1 speeding ticket (and thankfully i wasn't driving). When we arrived in boise it was 6:30 and the game was at 7:05 so we decided to get some food- then ran over to the game. by this time we were cutting it close and when we finally reached the "Player Ticket-will call line" it was FOREVER long. To make a long story short-- they ran out of USU tickets- i flipped- got a little angry at a couple of people- and got into the game with about 8 minutes left in the first half. To make matters worse they lost. We look back at our unfortunate vacation and laugh now.. but i was ANGRY then. UGH. haha.

Another unfortunate event is Jared's "foot incident". He has a bad case of Plantars Fascitis" which to my understanding is a tearing thingy in the arch of your foot that KILLS. He's in a lot of pain. He got a cortizone shot a week ago but it didn't really have much effect. He also gets some sort of ultrasonic treatment?? that doesn't really help either. He says hes fine- He still is playing great. In the ST Mary's game that was on ESPN he still was able to score 22 points (including an NBA range 3-pointer) which was so awesome!

Good news to end on: the WAC tournament which means spring break and a trip to reno- is in about 2 weeks. HOORAH!

WAHOO! We just beat Fresno in a wild overtime. Jared is still doing great. This week was a bit of a wild one. I worked so much and have so much stinkin homework. It has been busy. Jared and I really haven't been up to too much lately... oh wait... we're having BABY QUAIL! yes i'm going to be a mom! to a little button quail. can't wait. haha. Jared ordered them off of the internet and i am patiently waiting for an incubator so we can hatch some babies.
