Updates are scarce because there is rarely anything an audience would want to read about. Not saying that there's nothing interesting going on in life, though.

A few highlights from the last few weeks: 

1. My third job ended last Monday. It's either famine or flood as far as work goes. Now I feel like I hardly work at all. But I've managed to save enough so that I won't have to take out loans for two quarters of grad school, if I use my AmeriCorps money. 

2. We attended Jon and Lauren Van Keulen's wedding a few weekends ago. It was beautiful! The reception was in a revamped barn. Here's a pic of the wedding party. Note Chris on the left. :)

3. We participated in the 5/3 Riverbank Run last Saturday. It's a 25k. Chris ran a half-marathon before he started walking, and I ran eight miles. Pretty good considering we've both been too busy to properly train. 

4. Chris is still looking for work out in Bellingham. Last night he was offered an AmeriCorps position where we met as a wilderness ranger. While that sounds pretty cool, the cons outweighed the pros for him. Right now our plan is for him to road trip out with me and look for work, and if he can't find anything in a month, he'll head back to Michigan to work with Jon (the groom, above) and Mark (our roommate). We leave on the 5th!

5. I am officially registered for classes this summer. 

6. I'm heading home to Texas next weekend! Hooray!

I'm excited to start updating this during the summer and have amazing pictures of my new home to show everyone!
