Yay for Tyler P.

Tyler P. Toadman, aka T-bone, graduated from medical school last night!

Congratulations Ty!

You have worked your tail off, and you weren't just lucky to get into Stanford, you deserve it!


My life is complete!

Honey Nut Chex has been one of my all-time favorite cereals for as long as I can remember. While I wasn't that put out when I found out I couldn't eat gluten (and they contained gluten), I was incredibly happy when I heard that they'd be gluten free by this June. My Uncle Dave works for General Mills and shared the happy news with me a few months ago. I don't think he was expecting the reaction he got out of me. In fact, I'd venture to say that he was startled and somewhat appalled by my ecstacy.

Well, I heard a rumor that Target had GF Honey Nut Chex (and Corn Chex!) the other day. So I went to check it out...it was a trumor! I opened the box on the way home from the store, had a bowl for dinner, and then had a bowl for breakfast this morning. I'm not sick of them yet...

I am such a happy person!



I read the first three Harry Potter books about ten years ago when they very first came out.  I really liked them, but as we all know I am easily distracted and didn't really wait around to see what happened next.  Well, then everyone got super hyped up about the Harry Potter books and I decided that I didn't want to get involved in the phenomenon.  Too bad.

Recently I decided, however, that I wanted to catch up on what I'd been missing.  Natalie really likes the books and I thought it would be fun to be able to talk about them/watch the movies with her, so I decided to go ahead and re-read the first three and then read the last four for the first time.  So, I sauntered through the first three--thoroughly enjoying them--and then ended up finishing the last four at a steadily increasing pace.  

I just finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yesterday!  I could not ask for a better ending to the series.  I highly recommend that anyone who has been as stubborn as I have get over their pride and read these books!  They are some of my favorites of all time, and, actually really well written (sorry Twitlight).
