We Got In...

Ok, so we had a GREAT weekend! On Wednesday we found out that Josh got into school! He was accepted into Temple University in Philadelphia! We are VERY excited and now the stress of getting into school is gone and the stress of moving has come into our lives! We actually haven't "accepted" the offer into Temple. They gave us two weeks to decide and we are waiting to hear from a few more Des Moines! We went there Wednesday after work! It was a LONG night. We hit a pretty large thunderstorm and then made a wrong turn, so it took us a little longer than expected but we got to our hotel at about 1:30 am and went straight to sleep! In the morning we got up fairly early and I dropped Josh off at the school and went back to the hotel to sleep until check out time! I then decide to explore Des Moines! I really liked the city a lot and only got lost once! I was very amazed at myself! We had a map that said there were four malls in Des Moines, so I thought that I would check them out. I went to the one that was closest, but I never really did see a mall. I drove by twice to make sure I didn't miss it and the second time all I saw was like a run down dollar store strip mall....not that there is anything wrong with that but I was looking for a MALL! I decided I would then go check out the other ones. I went to two more and they weren't that bad. Though they were a little different than most malls I've been in because one of them had like a target and other similar stores in it....I thought that was a little weird. Oh on a side note, through all of my driving around Des Moines, I did not see ONE Wal-Mart! I saw like three Targets but no Wal-Mart. Maybe that isn't so weird to some of you, but you always see them around here! Anyways, I ended up watching "Wall-E" at the mall while I waited for Josh. I'm not a big fan of it. I didn't think it was very good at all. I did miss that last 10-15 minutes though because Josh called and had gotten done early! Maybe the last 10 minutes make up for the first hour and a half, but I don't know. to anyone thinking about going to see it, I would wait to rent it. For the interview, we think it went alright. Josh was the only one interviewing that day and got to spend like an hour with just the dean! We hope to hear from them by the end of this week! We both really like the area and the school seems REALLY nice, so we are crossing our fingers! If not though, we will be VERY happy to go to Temple! After the interview, we just came home. We did stop in Kansas City and ate and went to a few places, mainly Cabella's. It was fun. Other than that though, we didn't stop anywhere. We almost made it home on one tank of gas too! We were both pretty excited about that! We made it back in about 7 hours, which isn't bad at all.

On Friday---Happy Fourth of July! We actually didn't do a lot of festivities. We decided that now that we know we are moving, although we don't know where, that we should start packing and going through some things and decide what we will take, what to put on ebay, etc. So, that is mainly what we did on Friday. Then we went and watched fireworks!

On Saturday---we were just kind of lazy! We did go down to Oklahoma City to do a few things and went to my Dad's to BBQ and play games. That was really fun and something that I will really miss when we move! That pretty much sums up everything that is going on in our lives! I only have like two weeks left of school! YEAH!!! I am very excited to be done! What have you been up to? (Sorry for all the text and the lack of pictures..we did take our camera, just not any pictures)


  1. We are so excited for you guys! At least you know you are going somewhere and that's what counts! We'll keep our fingers crossed for Des Moines though! What a fun/exhausting little road trip! Have fun packing and let us know when you hear from the other schools!

  2. Congrats...that is EXCITING!!!

  3. Hey good for you guys...I am doing great. Matthew is having a better day today.
