Life Update #1

I have been really, really bad about keeping up with my blog. My computer has been on the fritz for some time now and I lost the cord to plug my camera into other computers (my computer has a slot for the SD card, so that is usually what I did). So I decided that every time I feel like being lazy and taking a break from my crazy studying/paper writing that will be going on for the next three weeks, I will update a group of old pictures to my blog. So here goes!!

Visit with Alyssa, Josh, and Logan Jurgensmeier

A few months back we were lucky enough to take a drive up to Bountiful with the Provo Jurgensmeier's to hang out with our SIL Alyssa and our two nephews, Josh and Logan. It was the first time all of us got to meet Logan, and it was so much fun! He is definitely a cutie.

Me and Logan just hanging out and having a good time snuggling on the couch!

I thought it was so cute/funny that I caught pics of both Brad and Bryce holding Logan and all of them making the same faces. They all sure look like Jurgensmeiers to me!

We can't forget all the fun we had with Josh(y) (and Josh as well :). He is getting older now and is really good at remembering all of our names. He is such a fun kid and we really like hanging out with him whenever we get the chance!

Alyssa, you have to come and visit again soon! Next time you can bring Cory as well :) And we have to get a picture with the whole group, I am not sure how we didn't make that happen...

Anyways that is our first update. Life has been so crazy lately that blogging is not my #1 priority, but I definitely keep up with everyone else's blogs! Also, anyway who wants to come visit us, we have an extra bedroom waiting for any friends who want to stop by! Keep posting!

So a lot of basketball has been going on lately. Bradley and I have gotten pretty into the whole NCAA March Madness thing this year, especially since Jimmer is POY candidate! It has been a lot of fun watching in person BYU be so successful this year, even with our ups and downs. We have also loved watching "Kimmer" do work in the Great West Conference. She is doing awesome her freshman year, and it is so fun to go to the games with the family. We love basketball!

However, we can't forgot the little people. Tonight I had one of my first intramural games in three weeks. My team was ranked #1 so we had a bye in the beginning of the tourny, and MAN, were we not ready to play tonight! We could not hit a shot to save our lives; however, the worst part was that the other team was just complaining the whole time. I was getting torn to shreds every time I touched the ball. Luckily the ref was calling (some) fouls, but the people guarding me would complain every single time the whistle blew! I mean, I understand that sometimes calls are controversial. But when you make a player bleed and her eyes are bright red and watering because you smacked her in the face, I think you need to just own up to it. It just amazes me how different basketball gets during tournament time!! I think I need to actually start working out more so I can get some of that muscle back in my legs, ha. We pulled out a tough win, but we have to bring our A game from now own. Bring it on ladies! And, LETS GO COUGS!!!

Sorry I have been so lame about my blog...I actually have a lot of pictures and posts that I want to do, but school has been so ridiculously busy I don't even know what to do with myself. I actually sat in the same room on campus today for six hours...I didn't realize it until someone asked if it was cold and I had no idea what the weather was even like that day. I NEED to get out more, ha. Only one month left!!

Love, Marianne
