I think I forgot how to blog. I'm just going to say that up front.

But I want to give a shout-out to awesome friends and family. Without them, I very well would be dead.

Listen to how blessed I am (brag-blog-alert):

Throughout the gross weeks of Finals (yes, in BYU graphic design, we basically have two weeks of finals. If you want a detailed explanation, I can explain in person...), we received:

  • FROM ASHLEY: Superfood! Not the Naked brand. No, only the best from Ashley: Odwalla brand. I savored it in little sips over the course of a late night and a long day.
  • FROM DEVIN: Red pepper hummus, blue corn tortilla chips, blueberry-pomegranate sparkling lemonade, and guacamole from Sunflower. Yes, the beverage was as good as it sounds.
  • FROM JENNY: String Cheese, sunflower seeds, Tillamook cheddar bite-size slices, Vitamin Water, and clementines! Those sunflower seeds were miracle-workers for staying awake night after night. And Tillamook and clementines some of the best orange foods ever.

  • FROM SEAN, MOM & PAPá: Rides, jumps, and car-loanings when our Protogé-5 went possessed and turned itself on and jumped a curb into a snow bank while we were in school, all in the middle of Finals. This kindness has continued until now. We are still waiting for the dealer to say they're ready for our pretty penny. (Well, actually more like one hundred sixty thousand pennies...)

  • FROM YOU TRUE FRIENDS: Your comments on my last post kept me going. I could get the email that told me what you commented, and it would satisfy my craving to look at blogs. Just for a bit. I'm ready to feed my cravings more than ever while at Nu Skin.
and, speaking of Nu Skin
  • FROM MY EMPLOYER: A Christmas bonus, the Christmas gift of $100 Costco Gift Card and a Nu Skin-engraved iPod shuffle, and another Christmas bonus, and letting me work such skimpy hours during Finals with a smile and a "That's totally fine!"

Thanks to everyone, we finished our last ChristmasFinals and lived to thank about it. { To celebrate on Friday night, we made a reservation at Communal, then canceled it to eat in our own backyard at Bombay House, then fell asleep to a movie. Mmmm...}

*I forgot how to blog because I misplaced all the nice little notes from Ashley, Devin and Jenny. I was going to post them here, but too bad. No pictures. So now Michelle won't read this...
