Last night, BYU hosted a free party for everyone who was graduating in two weeks, which includes me (although my teaching internship doesn’t end until Memorial Day).
I was very excited to go. This past week has been a tough one for the husband and I. Stretching our patience with our jobs and classes, even discovering more about each other. We needed a break and some good fun.
I went to school yesterday, with my hair up and feeling gross. I wanted a shower, but I needed laundry, desperately. Half of 6th period was gone due to track, and we still had a lot of disrespect and misbehavior from that class (because all the good kids were at track). I had a few stay after school to finish a project. Then, I rushed home, grabbed Justin, quarters, laundry, and fudge, and headed to the Wash Hut. We quickly did some laundry, and at home I did the quickest shower/get ready I’d ever done. And we were off.
First thing we did was grab some free food: pizza, hamburgers, chips, and icecream! Yeah! We found a few of our friends who were also graduating and sat with them. We kept finding other friends and had to balance our soda and icecream as we walked and talked.
We also found a tortoise! In the Wilk! ………..But for some reason, the video we took of it, just isn’t processing correctly. =( Sorry, guys!
There was also candy…but a tarantula guarded it. I’ve always wanted to show my bravery in holding a tarantula, but I’ve always been afraid of it and I dislike spiders. I gathered up my courage and held it in my hand!
I learned something new about Justin: he hates spiders. He freaked out as I touched him, after I held the spider. I also touched a snake that was in that red bag.
Next thing we did was win some candy in a wind a machine. We had to grab the paper with the red dot.

After our game, we said goodbye to our new friends. (When we could no longer see them, we realized that we should have gotten their number, or at least their last name so we could find them on facebook!)

We went home after we finished our fries and drinks and finished Season 7 of How I Met Your Mother.
I think it was a really good date night. Definitely Top 3 since we’ve been dating. It was also very needed for the both of us. Now, I really want to go to the Wall again!
