Conversation Fillers

The Jessica's and Erin used to always make fun of me when I would tell stories. 
Apparently, I am a consistent user of a certain filler phrase, and my stories would go something like this: 
"So today, I went to the store and I was running some errands and blah, blah, blah, all this stuff...when I ran into that boy I used to date and we were talking and blah, blah, blah all this stuff..." 

"Blah, blah, blah, all this stuff..."
To me it means, "and a bunch of stuff happened that all kind of runs together now for me and also isn't really especially important or interesting." 
And that is how I have felt about this spring term. The past two months have been a blur of three extremely difficult classes at double-speed and a whole lot of work in between hours spent at the library. 
Or, in other words "blah, blah, blah, all this stuff..." 

I haven't blogged much about it all. First because I have been so insanely busy. And second because it was just...fluff, really. 

This week was finals and I am finally (pun intended) finished with that dang bachelors degree of mine. 
Now, I am about to take a two month break that feels like the only chance I will have to gear up for the rest of my life. Because come August it will be full-speed ahead into a master's degree and hopefully a PhD. 
in the mean time, I will have a lot more blogging time and a lot more to say. (I always have a lot to say whether I blog about it or not.) 
#1. Tracy got married on Friday! Boy oh boy she looked gorgeous. In between meeting her outside of the temple and her reception I drove to American Fork for my cousins wedding. It felt a little bit like 27 dresses except at the end of the day I didn't meet a hot journalist who eventually falls for me despite the fact that I'm really needy and call him mean names. 
#2. You know my Harry Potter obsession is bad when I see an add for a "dual core" something or other and I am surprised when I click on it and realize that it is for a computer and not wands. #muggleproblems
#3. I'm getting into twitter. I still don't really get it but I obsessively follow all of Jimmer's tweets. And his girlfriends. #thingsyoushouldn'tadmitonablog
#4. I made plans to come home Saturday afternoon and drove into St. George monday at 6 p.m.
This is the kind of life I live.
#5. Last night we were all sitting around the counter eating and talking when the subject of real Americans came up. (Our family is the Jack Donaghy's of Santa Clara)
The usual names were thrown around.
Ronald Regan
(My mom requires us to put our hands over our hearts when we say that last one. That is real).

Then, someone asked, "Who is THE American?"
Mmmm. Hmmmm.
Rachel's face lit up.
We all nodded and smiled with satisfaction.
Just another night in the christian-conservative Wade household.

Okay well I am sure there is more to tell but we are departing for vegas in three hours to catch our plane to D.C. for Jordan's wedding and it is currently
 11:55 p.m. You do the math. I need to get three hours of sleep.
I will leave you with a picture of Jenna's beautiful baby.
Remind me to tell you the story of his birth. It's funny.
I'll be blogging from the east coast for the next week and blah, blah, blah, all this stuff.
(Okay, this picture also includes me but just ignore that part and focus on the perfect child. More to come.)
