Back to School!!!!

As of next Monday I will officially be a college student once again! It has been almost 6 years since my last attempt at school so I am a little rusty. I signed up for a couple night classes at Mt. San Jacinto College in Menifee and I'm super excited about it! I've been saying to Rob recently that I feel really stupid, like I'm not exercising my brain at all and I think getting back into school and working toward some degree will get my brain up and running again.

I am nervous but excited about it, just hope my classes aren't filled with 18 year olds to make me feel old and dumb, but I did sign up for classes that I should ace since I'm only doing accounting courses!

So over the next few months I should be back up to working almost full-time, taking 2.5 classes, running 3-4x a week, and anything else that comes up- and I'm totally stoked to be busy once again!!!

Shhhh! Did you hear THAT??

This past weekend we traveled with our dear friends Kevin and Laura on a little camping extravaganza! We did some soul searching on the trip and found that none of us actually like camping!!! We really enjoy the hiking part of it and being in the wilderness, but the actual digging a hole to go potty, sleeping on the hard ground, no comfy place to sit and relax is not our cup of tea.

Here are the major highlights of the trip:
*We planned on staying 2 nights...we were up and packed after the 1st night!
*Kevin & Laura were freaked out all night because some critter was sniffing around their tent
*I had a dream that I was at my 36th b-day party and Justin Timberlake was there!
*We saw some naked men soaking up the rays at the hot springs
*We saw a bat fall out of a tree and die
*We saw a rattlesnake (we think it was dead)
*The amazing sky at night it was so beautiful seeing that many stars
*The best lunch I've eaten in a long time in Ojai
*Hot fudge sundaes at McDonalds
*Coming home to a cool shower and a super comfy couch!

Me & Rob (he wore his old marine boots and they were sooo cute!)

Kevin & Laura

Isn't this beautiful?
