Danny has an internship for this summer!!

He will be working for the information/communication department for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

We are so excited! It is such a blessing to have this internship.

Danny looked at opportunities here, Dallas, and a little bit in LA. If Dallas had worked out we both would have gone and crashed at my dad's house all summer. That way we would be able to continue paying rent on our place here. Which we really didn't want to lose because we love this house and we would have had to find a place for a semester. If California had an internship Danny would have stayed with his parents and I would have stayed here in Utah. Same idea, to keep this house. I am rather relieved that California didn't happen. I would have been okay, but I sure would miss the guy.

But anyway, with this one, we don't have to worry about any of that! All we have to worry about now is transportation. Yikes! But we know something will work out.

So, that is that. It is kind of fun having our life planned, to an extent, for the next several months but then after those several months we have NO IDEA where will we be or what we will be doing. That is exciting too.

1 little 2 little 3 little...


I just finished cleaning up my closet, organizing, and putting away summer stuff that does not lend itself to layering. I pulled out my winter clothes and counted..I have 5 cable knit turtle neck sweaters and 3 ribbed turtle neck sweaters.

Alright class, today's question is: What is Cali's favorite winter top???

Turtle neck sweaters!!!!! They are so cozy. So comfy. And so many pretty colors.

It felt strange to be getting out sweaters when it was 60 some odd degrees today. Utah weather has been so loony lately. I don't mind it being warmer longer, it is just weird.

This weekend is the Biggest Sale of them All at JCPenney. Work will be long, and busy.

Let's see, I need to put up Halloween pictures but first I need to get the pictures from my camera to my computer.

I got a text message that my good friend, Anna, had her baby. Huzzah!!! I am excited to see little baby Konneker. I don't think we will be able to go visit them at the hospital though. Stupid Swine Flu freak out.

The BYU bookstore had some good books on sale today. I bought them with birthday money. A few of them I am saving in anticipation of a year from now. I will be missing going to classes terribly. So I bought a book about John and Abigail Adams and a book about how people find happiness 'wrong'.

Not much else to report. Danny is doing well. I am doing well. We are happy.
