a few items of EXCITING business.

First of all, not sure if you noticed, but the url (is that what it's called?) for my blog is now  Now, don't worry, you can still type in the old url, it just automatically forwards to this!  Which is so exciting!  It was a gift from my oldest brother who is actually a genius (just like all of my siblings--what the heck?!).  For my birthday, he made it so I could have the .com address instead of my old blogspot address!  He was tired of me switching back and forth between blogger and wordpress (blogger, I've chosen you!  I promise!) so in my birthday card he was like "Why can't you just put it at In fact...there, that's better."  What a guy!  He did that for me and when I went to selfgoodday it even said "Happy Birthday, Stacy!" at the top.  Such a neat gift!

Secondly, I'm in the midst of finals and I really don't have time to be blogging but I'm doing it anyway.  And do you want to know one of the reasons why?  It's because K baby Page(!!!) is back in town and as one of my most avid readers, I think I owed this to her.  I am soooooo excited for her to be back from her internship dealio!

Third, finals are so lame.  I'm getting there though.  A few thoughts about my classes:  most of them were one million AMAAAZING and one of them (the title of which I will not mention except I will give you this one clue: it was Social Psych) is a class I am so glad I never have to go back to.  The topic was interesting, but ID even K...some people.

Another thing: Dr. Goates gave me a box of fudge.  And everyone that is my friend--you all suck because you are not helping me eat it and I just gained 83 pounds and I'm blaming YOU.

(also side note that only danielle, katie cutler, and maffa would understand...remember this?  "HEY EVERYBODY THAT IS MY FHE KID. GO TO FHE. I MADE COOKIES!" kills me.)

AAAAAAAANNNNND finally, most importantly, most excitingly (not a word), most fabulously...Jalyn left on her mission today!!!  Girl is going to be the best missionary, I will tell you what.  I'm so proud of her and I can't wait for her to tell us all the amazing things that go on during her missionary service in the Dominican Republic.  She was so excited and ready to go and it was adorable.  Also, I just want to say that she ended up going to work with me this morning and she basically just sat in the conference room and her friends just kept coming and visiting with her and then leaving and then another friend would come two seconds later and I was like, hey when did you become the president of the United States and end up having all these appointments? Sheesh.

But anyway, I'm kind of digging the whole new(ish) drop off system at the MTC (missionary training center).  You just drive up and there are missionaries waiting to take your luggage and my favorite part was that since Danielle was driving and I was sitting in the front seat they thought I was the missionary and opened the door for me and I was like, oh actually she's in the back, but thanks anyway.  The kid that helped her was very nice and I was like, hey! I love missionaries!  You're all so cute and wonderful and fabulous and you'll do amaaaazing things with your life in the next 1.5-2 years!

So what I'm trying to say is that Jalyn is awesome, she's going to do awesome things, she'll meet awesome people, and she'll come back awesome and I'll mostly just be eating bon bons.

We'll see her in 18 months!
