so a quick update: i've been super busy. i worked 36 hours in 3 days. (i always do, but not in a row) and we've been without internet. it was kind of nice because we talked a lot more and i got more sleep. not much is new other than the big red grill that sits on our back porch now (thanks to the in-laws!) and our nephew turned 4. we had a little party at the park and i borrowed sweet baby katie the whole afternoon. i started to learn how to crochet (thanks to my lovely friend anna). also, i'm soaking in the last week of being 23. michael took me shopping today... i walked away with 4 shirts and 1 hoodie. they. are. all. kc chiefs. they were on sale and "too good to pass up" in his words. and that pretty much sums up the week!
