happy things.

This is the part of the blog where I tell you fun and happy things in my life. Because we all need some excitement, right?

FIRST off, I got my first letter from Jeremiah today! It was incredibly short, and most of it was government issued official paperwork about what to expect out of my navy recruit... blah... blah. But there was a very short handwritten paragraph on the back of it all. That made it worth it.

AND I've had the opportunity to spend quite a bit of time with my sister, brother-in-law, and their wonderful little boys. It has been good for me, and a lot of fun. I've learned that the insult of choice amongst 4 year olds is "chicken nugget head". If you've learned nothing else from this blog, you at least now know how to stay hip and relevant in verbal combat.
Here are those little boys and my, not so little, little brother showing off their sweet mohawks.

AND not only are they for reals going to produce the Arrested Development movie, but also like nine or ten episodes to preface it. No bigs deals.

ALSO, friends. I mean "friends" in a lot of ways... I'm hoping to set aside specific time to visit those close friends, skype date with Lauren tomorrow night, and I've met a few people at church here.  Friendship will ensue, and fun will be had by all... or at least me.

So there you have it. Life can be tough, but there are a few gems...
