I'm still a little sad I'll be spending my birthday alone... but maybe someone has some ideas or activities for that day or someone who would want to spend it with me...;) please please please.
I won't lie though, I'm totally one of those girls who feels entitled on my birthday. I've never worked on my birthday (and sure dont plan to start this year). To me, it's just a day to relax and get pampered! LOVE IT! I've already gotten two presents from my lovey. The 3rd book of the Hunger Games- Mockingjay. He also surprised me with a new laptop battery and charger. Might seem like a silly gift but my battery was short and it would only last like 3 minutes without being pulled in and my charger just died too. So I was excited to finally have both!
Welp, I'll keep you posted on school and life and all our what-nots.

The next day we went to Memphis. We went to Graceland (Elvis's home) checked out Beale Street and ate at BB King's BBQ, which was really good BBQ, btw. We also went to the Gibson Museum. We didn't get to tour it because we didnt have enough time. We had a schedule to be at the Peabody Hotel for a duck show. haha! silly I know. But this really yuppy hotel has these ducks that ride the elevator down stairs from their suite on the top floor, walk a red carpet, and hang out in a fountain all day. We caught the end where they climb out, walk the red carpet and head up to their rooms. Silly silly stuff. Maybe one day I'll be a duck master.
The next day, my parents anniversary, we set up a 100+ ft slip and slide out front of my parents house. It was awesome! We soaped it up, had a sprinkler going and headed down on a raft. I busted it pretty good before we got the raft out. I ended up getting whiplash on my side. Yeah, I'm smooth.
Wednesday I went with my mom into Jackson and we went looking for beads. A couple weeks ago when all the family was there, they made watches. Out in Utah/ Idaho these big beaded chunky watches are super popular so we wanted to try it out. I picked my beads and quickly created mine. I'll have to take a picture to show you. I think it turned out well. and it was super easy to make!
thursday we left early for Nashville and did a little touring. The night before we watched Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The lightning Thief. In part of the movie they go see the Parthenon in Nashville, so we did too. It was pretty cool. Then we had a very very long day of flying. Nashville to Atlanta to Phoenix.While we were in Tennessee we learned how to make homemade bread and cinnamon rolls. And I'm not talkin about using a bread maker or bosch, we're talkin all by hand, homemade. It was great! Now I just need to practice to see if I can do it on my own.
Right when we got home, I started packin up for the new house. For those of you who don't know, we are only renting a house, didnt buy. Its just around the corner and up the street from our old Apartment. It's pretty sweet. 2 bedrooms 2 bath and a den (office/music room). It comes with a full sized washer and dryer too! We love it here! I'll have to take some pictures. But luckily were were about to get everything over and unpacked in 2 days. I work fast what can I say. Plus, I had a time frame. Clint, Drew's brother, was getting home from his mission moving in with us. I just wanted to have the house all situated for him.But speaking of clint, he got home the 15th from his mission. Its so crazy! It seems like he just left and at the same time feels like he never left. He's a super cool kid. We'll have tons of fun! I just hope Drew doesnt ignore me too much.
Um, that's pretty much everything right now. Oh, Drew treated himself to a phone upgrade for his amazing job he did on his DAT. He just got a Droid X from Verizon. That and clint will be the end of our marriage. haha not really, but I'm sure it will make me left out. And speaking of Dental School, things are still going well. Initail applications are done to 14 schools. We are just finishing up the secondarys and soon it'll be September and hopefully tons of interviews!!
Welp, this is a huge post! Just wanted to keep you up to date! Happy Hot summer!

We're gunna celebrate this ordeal finally being over, where else but at Oreganos! Come party too, I'm not sure which location or what the exact time will be, but get at me as that day comes closer.
AND!! Our lovely friends will be providing us with a lake trip next Tuesday. Thats right, a full day of Drew not studying or working. Oh it will be glorious! (but I'm not inviting you to this. sorry. its not my place to invite people, since we were the ones invited in the first place. sorry)
AND!!!! We're going to Tennessee! 4th of July here we come. I havent seen fireworks since summer of '07 when I lived in Utah. Its been even longer for Drew since his last time was on his mission in the midwest. We're super excited. We'll be spending most of our time here (see below) at what I like to call the Rasmussen Plantation. Comes equiped with a large pond in front with a deck on 18 acres. And of course, amazing home cooking from non other than Deb. Oh man I'm so excited!
But the party wont stop once we get back. Nope, it'll be Drews 24th Birthday that week and the following week Clint comes home! Wahoo!!
Yay for summer finally finding the Solomons!

Its a pretty sweet hookup and its all mine..until Wednesday. And I must say, the pay aint too shabby either ;) Man I'm spoiled with this extra curricular activity.

All you need is strawberries, lots of sugar, and sure jell (you can get it at most grocery stores)
I used sure jell premium fruit pectin. They have other brands of versions of this sure jell, I got the one with the no sugar or less sugar recipes inside. I didnt use those recipes because I love me some sugar. haha. the fold out had all the recipes on it. I used the easy freezer one.
then you have to mash them up one cup at a time. I only did one batch to start with so thats 4 cups of strawberries. I just used a potato masher. Next you just follow the recipe on the fold out paper and put it into containers to set up
These are just little reuseable containers I got at the dollar tree for, of course, a dollar! And a good thing about this jam is that you can freeze it up to a year and it tastes so darn good! I did end up making another batch today because we just have so many strawberries left. I'll probably make more to be honest, might as well with strawberries being so cheap right now.
I hope you'll try to make it sometime. It's really good, easy to make, and ends up being way cheaper than buying jam (that is if you find good priced strawberries)
