Hello March!!!

Okay, I am truly the biggest slacker, but we are alive and well.  I guess I haven't updated for a while, because I haven't really had anything to write about.  January and February have been very busy for Colt. He is studying all the time.  Especially right now. He leaves at about 7:00 in the morning and gets home at about 12:00 at night (well at least the last 2 weeks this has been his schedule).  All of the wives are so ready for this quarter to be done!  We are ready to spend time with our husbands!  They have all been working so hard.  

So the question is, what do I do since Colt is gone all of the time?  Well after working everyday, I seem to come home and stay quite busy with Bauer.  He is doing a lot better.  He loves to play. In fact that is all he wants to do. (He is not a cuddler at all) He runs and fetches, then brings whichever toy he is playing with at the moment back to me, right to my hand, to try to do tug-o-war.  He even tries teasing, I will try to grab the toy and he takes a step back then forward back to my hand to try to get me to take it again.  It is really funny.  (I know I need a child to talk about, but until then...Bauer it is)

The other thing I have really enjoyed is reading.  It is funny, I have only read text books, school notes, etc for the last 7 years, and have read very few books for enjoyment.  I wasn't the biggest fan of reading, but now that is my favorite past time.  I am loving it.  So any suggestions on great books to read, I am all ears! 

The month of February wasn't entirely studying for Colt.  He did have time to take me to a formal dinner for SAA (a club/organization for spouses of the med students).  It was on Friday the 13th, and it was a lot of fun.  As for Valentines Day, I played volleyball, and then got my hair done by my friend Laura.  The boys were studying until midnight again.  Colt promises we will have a nice dinner when his break comes!  Colt did give me some beautiful Gerbera daisies (my favorite flowers which are also hard to find), and a sweet card. Even when he is stressed to his max, he still comes up with the most thoughtful things to let me know he loves me.   

One thing I have found that is so great out here is the support that I get from all of the other wives.  They are all so wonderful!  Especially those in our ward.  We really do come to rely on our ward members when we are away from our families, and everyone here is so supportive.  I love our ward, and I love our friends.  They definitely help get through the tough days, and make the other days a lot of fun!

I don't know if you remember me but this is Heather Baird Bingham. We went to school together at SFHS. I found your blog from the class blog. I hope that's okay and not weird. You look absolutely beautiful. I am totally impressed that you have your Doctor of Pharmacy. I wish your husband the best of luck in med school. (I can only imagine...we are starting law school next fall.)

Kandis! How fun, so you guys are not too far from Chicago--If you ever come up, you know you've got a place to stay! It is so fun to see your blog. It's nice that you are married to Colt, too, so that I can keep track of both of you at once :)
Really, you guys are awesome.

Hi friend. It is good to see that you are doing well. Your dog is so cute. When is the next time you are in town. We HAVE to get together with everyone. Take care and I hope it warms up soon for you. I was just in St. George and for some reason I was remembering our fun Senior Trip when we all went down there, and how much fun we had. Good time, good times. Take care

So I was listening to my ipod in the car the other day, and the main gladiator song came on. I couldn't help but think of you (Colt), Russia, cold showers, and death curdling screams! Fun memories :)
