April, Finals, and Busy Weekends

My posting activity pretty much describes our free time in the past month. It always seems like the last three weeks before finals are the busiest of the whole semester! The good news: we survived. The bad news: we started school again this week! But we figure another 6 weeks of spring semester won't kill us... right? 
A little bit of what we've been up to....

One of my best friends, Jo, is getting married in a few months and I got to help Emily make some treats for her bridal shower. Chocolate covered strawberries are a favorite! 

Jo's getting married in the D.C. Temple, but they're also having a reception on Oahu, where her Fiance is from. I'm secretly hoping that I can use that as an excuse to get back to Hawaii soon :) We're so excited for you, Jo!

As I mentioned before, Nick has been busy with the Air Force ROTC all semester. Despite the early morning workouts twice a week and lots of work, he really loves it. I think it would kill me.
 We got to attend the end-of-semester "Dining Out"- which means we got to get all dressed up - and Nick had to buy me a corsage! 

I don't think I've worn one of these since high school, but it matched my dress perfectly! 

Let's just say I was introduced to a whole new world of military etiquette that I never even knew existed! But it's always fun to get dressed up for an event. 
And...a special thanks to our good friends Mike and Alisha. Mike's been our home teacher this year and has been helping Nick with the ins and outs of ROTC since the beginning! 

 Nick's favorite part of the month - he finally got the road bike he's been dreaming about for the past year. We can't wait for the Utah weather to stop brining snow so we can actually get out and bike together!
