A Very Sad Day

A very good, best friend of mine is officially driving back to AZ after graduating from NCU. Last night was hard. I started working at church last October and Ashley was an intern, without her help I might have sank! She helped me with everything and I want to thank her for not only helping me at work, but for being a truly fabulous friend. I know that God has the perfect plan for her, ie, finding a husband, landing the perfect job, dream vacations around the world, and some beautiful kiddies!:) It just stinks that she has to go back to AZ to accomplish all of this...I will miss her dearly! Just know Ashley, I will never make you eat a dead baby chicken egg ever again...unless it involves an extreme amount of STL money! I bawled all the way home from church last night, driving by myself, tear and snot everywhere, just thinking of how much fun we had in the little time that we became friends. Remember when I fell on your foot and broke it...or you just lied and said that it was broken! I love you and miss you already, the Paradigm office will never be the same!

God's Pottery

We went with Andrew and Rachel last night to God's Pottery, two Christian guys who do comedy, at the Acme Comedy Club. It was absolutely hilarious!! We had a great time! We should definitely go to more comedy shows, it's just that some comedians can get so dirty with their jokes. Anyway, I'll be keeping my eye out for more funny people. They are there all week, check them out.

I remember my first year in college we were required to blog for class and I thought it was a little weird. Now I'm thinking, no one writes anymore. Sure there are emails, but what about letters and cards. I LOVE getting things in the mail!

Anyway, I thought setting up a blog would help people stay informed on what's going on in the amazing life of Lacy and Derek.

We recently spent a week at the lake with my family, fun times! It was the most perfect 9 days we have ever spent at the lake! Only 1 rainy day and 4 days of mirror-like water, which means that you don't have to sit and paddle frantically away from the shore, dock or boat. We spent a lot of time on the water tubing, skiing and I tried knee boarding...not my thing folks. I just couldn't get my knees strapped in when I got up, it was ugly.

My sister then came home with Derek and I and spent all last week with us. It's too bad we both had to work, she did wash dishes for us while at home, very awesome! She also came to work with me and horrible me, I put her to work:) We saw Dark Knight while she was here, very thrilling! Then my mom and Darold came to pick her up...which is code for, we're coming to shop. So we went shopping, saw the movie Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, pretty good, and everyone went home on Sunday morning. Love you guys!!

Derek won tickets to a concert at the Varsity Theatre for Sunday night, 4 artists performed: Meiko, Jay Nash, Joe Purdy and Chris Seefried. In all honesty, we had no idea who they were, but really enjoyed all of them. They are all considered folk singers. We had never been to the theatre either, which has a fantastic atmosphere, rugs, drapes, dark leather chairs everywhere, really sweet.

Tonight we are going to see God's Pottery. These 2 guys were on Last Comic Standing and were pretty hilarious! I'm very excited. It kind of seems like we actually have exciting lives, but this has just been a busy month. We are also sleep deprived from watching the Olympics, which have been phenomenal! However, I'm a little peeved about some of the judging for the 12 year old gymnasts...seems a little questionable to me.

So, here's my first blog, hope you enjoyed it, it probably won't normally be this long.
