The list of random....

The list of random:

-I got a fun letter from Elder Gardner! Funny kid that one! Such a great missionary
-Brevin started summer semester this week. 
-I took a Compass placement test for college. Scored college level on English and reading and border line college level on Math. I start school on June 25th! I'm excited! 
-I saw a puppy get hit by a semi in front of me and couldn't do anything to help it without causing an accident. :( That was a bit traumatic and quite sad.
-We ate lots of Pancakes at IHOP
-Brevin found out he will be graduating this summer! Wahoo! There was a bit of credit confusion but it's taken care of now.
-I highlighted my hair with red highlights
-We grilled garlic and put it in olive oil and dipped bread in it. mmmm.
-Brevin got to listen to Mariachis for an hour and a half at a graveside service. He loves that. He just won't admit it. lol.
-I went with Brevin to a Rosary he was working.
-Went to a restaurant called Zipps... amazing tarter sauce!  

-We went to outback steak house for the first time ever for our Saturday date night.
-We then went to Hobby Lobby to explore. My hubby is such a great sport. He spoiled me with a plaque for me to paint and decorate with a quote that says, "Christ--the center of our home, a guest at every meal, a silent listener to every conversation" to put on our wall above a picture of Christ.
-He then helped me plan our Sunday school lesson, while my "visual" brain drew pictures of what was happening in the stories. I'm a kid at heart.
-I taught our Sunday school lesson all by myself. (Brevin had to work a rosary) I've never taught by myself before. It was a we bit frightening, but we have a cute group of kids who are pretty easy going.

-I will finally be getting my thank you post cards to start sending out on Tuesday! FINALLY! I'm so excited, I feel like a jerk not getting thank yous out till now, lots of confusion with pictures and then printing. They're coming people, I promise! 
-I made one of them meme deals:

-A missionary heading out played this song today and I decided it will be played at my funeral. I love it! The joys of being married to a mortician... constantly thinking about funeral plans. 
-I made my momma's famous poppy seed chicken for dinner tonight. mmm mmm good. 
-McCall & Brevin= addicted to chocolate milk.

Well there ya have it folks, our lovely list of random. hope you enjoyed it. 
Have a wonderful Memorial day everyone!

Sorry about the day late post for all you dedicated followers. We have had quite the weekend! Here's the fun breakdown of our adventures in Salt Lake:






Wed: we flew to salt lake. there were only 13 passengers on our plane out of the 50 seats. it was really odd. but on the bright side we got all the drinks and snacks we wanted.

have in Washington. Apollo.
Thurs: This day was the whole reason we were in town... the wedding of Brevin's brother Jeff.

My little sisters and I all dressed
up in our fun color dresses.

Happy 3 month Anniversary
to us!
MaryAnn and Jeff: 12 hours, Brevin and McCall: 3 months, Ruthanne and Paul: 4 months

Fri: I got my braces off... well I'm done with them. You can't really get Invisilign off. ha. Got a permanent retainer on the bottom teeth and a retainer for the top at night. party. We then had lots of fun hanging with the Cliffords and Gma and Gpa Huff. Finding potato bugs, playing barbies and eating dinner together. lots of fun :)
That night my brother Jameson proposed to his wife to be Christelle, I'm so happy for them! 

Sat: This was the Parrish day. Lunch at Maddox, family pictures in the park, shopping adventures with my parents at Smith and Edwards, being silly with my niece, and spending some quality time together. 
Smith and Edwards. My dad bought Brevin an Alpaca!
