The Hunt for Asparagus

A friend of mine, who grew up in the Rexburg area told me recently about how asparagus grows wild in the ditches this time of year. We decided to see if we could find any yesterday. The three of us (me, Heidi, and LaNelle) searched the ditches for this yummy (and expensive) veggie. We didn't find much because there has been a lot of rain and not a lot of sun lately. We all came home with a few really good pieces. I felt like a homeless person on the side of the road with my grungy clothes and my plastic bag, digging through the ditches. It was quite an adventure and something I'd like to try again!

Waiting and waiting...

I am really bad at being patient. Graduation is coming up for both of us and I'm feeling a little lost. Ryan graduates in July and right now we are waiting for him to find a job in Salt Lake. I walk in July and graduate in December. I am student teaching this fall in the Salt Lake Area. I start teaching in the middle of August and I am still waiting to find out what school I am teaching at and what classes. We want to have a baby, and we all know how much waiting that takes! Doesn't it just seem like every time you get life figured out, you have to start all over again? Even though I am nervous I know that this whole experience will be a great way for me to build my faith and trust in Heavenly Father. I know He has a plan (I just want to know what it is, RIGHT NOW).

I just got my hair cut and it is "short" for the first time in about seven years. I love it! I usually go to the local beauty school for a five dollar hair cut but because this cut was a little more drastic I went somewhere nice. Here are a few before and after pictures.
