Josh and I decided sometime last year that we were going to go to Hawaii when we graduated college. It seems like a far away dream, but luckily, time took it's course, and vwa-la; HAWAII!!!

We went in the middle of May for 10 days to Oahu! There is really nothing else to say, it's obvious it was amazing... I mean duh, it was HAWAII!!

LDS Temple in Hawaii!

Chinaman's Hat

The names of all the soldiers that dies on the USS AZ

Josh and I both Graduated!!


Well, both Josh and I graduated from school! Josh said that the feeling of never having to do homework EVER AGAIN was the best! It's so great to know that all you have been working for, trying to reach that huge goal of becoming a college graduate had finally payed off!
Last summer, Josh and I moved back in with my family so he could internship for Ernst & Young in Los Angeles. For those of you who do not know where my family lives, they live in Murrieta, CA. that is 80 miles away from LA. Yeah, it says 1 hour and 23 minutes, but that's WITHOUT traffic! He would spend on average, I think, 2 hours on his way in and then 2 on the way back. That was 4 hours each and every day in the car alone. It was all good though, because he was given a job offer before he was even finished with the internship. going back and completing his last year was a necessary evil. haha, not evil I guess, but he would laugh that he had a job, he just had to complete his last year in order to start it. So we went back up to Utah! He finished his last year, and I completed my hours at PMTS (Paul Mitchell the School). We both finished in April, and stayed in Utah for the summer. It was the smartest thing for us to do, since we both had full time good paying jobs.

Anyways, here are some pictures of both of our graduations!

Both Joshua and my graduation Announcement!

He's so handsome!

Congrats baby!

Raechel and I were able to graduate at the same time. It was really cool to have my best friend be my partner in crime at school. We were known as "The Sisters". If you said that, anyone knew who you were talking about. haha!

This was my model, Koe Koe. I did her braids. :D
