Life is crazy! all my faithful readers...I think I am back from a long hiatus of not blogging! We'll see though. It's hard to get back into it when you've been gone for so long. However. Here's an update.

Bryant is already full swing into his second year of medical school. It's harder and the hours are longer, but he still likes being here. He got some more fun 'doctor toys' this week that he gets to play with when he goes on rotations through clinics and shadows doctors. Hehe...I like when he wears his white coat to school and now he has accessories for it too! That's what every outfit needs, right?

I have been the busy one. I've started school again. Nothing, huge. I'm doing some certificate programs at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) that I absolutely love! I am taking courses on pattern making, draping, and millinery! I love them. I have already made three berets and am working on draping my first felt hat. I know that didn't make sense to most of you, but I'll post pictures when I finish it. I love it! It's nice having night classes because it allows Bryant some study time and gives me something to do instead of staying at home watching TV every night. I'm hoping to take a Haute Couture course next semester. That would be awesome! I think I have found a new hobby. A little expensive, but I love it!

I am also juggling two callings: ward missionary and primary chorister! Our Primary program is three weeks away and the kids are doing awesome! I'm so excited for them. I just hope everything goes well. But we are working full time on this and drilling those songs into their heads like there's no tomorrow! They're good troopers.

I have been doing a lot of odd jobs around here...babysitting, mending, sewing projects, etc...all to pay our bills. It works and I love that it gives me flexibility.

We are happy and still enjoying New York. I'm loving New York actually. I love it every time I step outside my door. It's a wonderful city. I'm growing quite attached to it! I never thought I would say that, but it almost makes the high costs worth it...not really, but I don't mind them so much anymore. I"m sure I would be thinking differently if we were actually paying our rent at the mement and not doing it through loans. But for now...I love the city. I love fall in New York. It's everything that "You've Got Mail" described it to be! Beautiful.
