Travis is officially a grown up today! He graduated from Utah State with a degree in Finance as well as a degree in economics. It seems to be very anticlimactic due to the fact that Utah State has done away with December commencement. I feel like his huge accomplishment has been overlooked. So with that in mind, I wanted to let him know how proud I am of him and what a BIG deal it is to graduate college. He has worked hard in school while working full time which has made for little time for the two of us to hang out but it was worth it because now he is DONE!!! I am very proud of you Travis and I love you much! (sorry for lack of pictures...my camera is being held hostage)

I don't remember November. Seriously where did it go? This month has flown!! I spent the first three weeks of November in the library... I know shocking. This semester is almost over so I will get to relax and see my husband again. Travis was asked by the Business school to attend a conference in Chicago the beginning of November. It was an all expenses paid conference with two other kids that are also presidents of Business groups. I don't know exactly what the conference was about because all I heard about was how much fun they had in Chicago seeing the sites.
Thanksgiving was a blast! We had a great dinner with Travis's family the sunday before Thanksgiving with all of his siblings. Then after the last set of midterm tests, we headed to Bondurant, Wy to spend the weekend with my family. We went into Jackson for a day and played in the snow and did what we all do best on thanksgiving, eat, eat and EAT! Food was great and the company was better! Travis and I both are looking forward to the end of the semester and the Christmas season!

Whew... it has been a crazy few months only to lead into even busier months! With school in full swing, Travis and I hardly see each other, and when I say hardly... I mean Never! I have a crazy schedule this semester that has caused me to study literally everyday all day long. Travis has saved my life! He has really stepped it up on the home front. He hates to admit this, but he has really become good at being domestic. I have been so grateful for him. Hopefully, my schedule will ease up after this semester and he can gladly step back from house duties! Over the last few months we have found some time to get together and have some fun! September and October obviously bring in the deer hunt, we spent two weekends up in Bondurant, Wy hunting for TJ's tag...sadly we were unsuccessful! TJ hiked his butt off but to no avail, oh well next year. We were able to hunt a few days with my dad for his tag in Utah. The joys of having a Utah tag is we were able to hunt right from home! Both my brothers, Travis and I were all able to go up with my dad. It was so much fun to all be there, I must be a good luck charm because he got one! See pictures below! For Halloween we invited some friends up to come shooting with us and over for some chili and a get together. It was a blast, it started to rain which cut short the shooting outing but the rest fun. Even with the crazy schedules we try to find time for some fun! Hopefully the next few months will allow some more fun!

Summer 2010

I will now just blog about entire seasons rather than events, since obviously that is what happens anyway! This summer we moved to Heber. I had a internship at a large animal vet clinic in Heber and Travis had an internship at IHC financial branch in salt lake. I also was taking some classes at UVU. We most definitely just partied all summer long! Since my internship was unpaid, I worked for my dad this summer on the Mountain Top Mules ranch. I rode our horses and mules all summer. I couldn't have had a better job. I was also deemed head mexican, while Hunter was my subordinate. We had some ups and downs trying to be the boss and sister, but by the end of the summer we made it work. In addition to my great job of riding in the mountains everyday, we also took huge advantage of the membership to Promontory Country Club. My dad, TJ and I played A TON of golf! Seriously it was probably not healthy but we sure had fun. TJ was finally able to come on the annual Pack Trip. It was fun to show TJ our favorite vacation ever. Immediately after returning from the Pack Trip, TJ, Hunter and I competed in the Spudman Triathlon in Burley, ID. For not training the three weeks prior, we all did pretty good! TJ did beat me... unfortunately but it was close. So after a summer of horses, golf, training, golf, work, golf, laying by the pool,vgolf, school, golf, pack trip, golf, and triathlons we had a blast of a summer!

I became very good at driving our truck and trailer.

Yes, lots of Golf!

Summer Time

I know I am officially the worst blogger ever! Our lives are a bit crazy! A quick update... Travis and I finished up another semester at Utah State. Travis will graduate this coming december...YES!!! and I will graduate the next semester in May. We have currently moved to Heber for the summer. Travis got an opportunity to intern at IHC, in the financial branch in downtown salt lake city. I am interning at a large animal vet clinic in Heber...(hence the move). I am also taking some classes at UVU so I can get done. We have officially started the application process to Vet school!!!! It is overwhelming and exciting all at once. We will know the outcome around December or January. We are definitely enjoying our summer, golfing, riding mules, and training for our upcoming triathalon. I will try to be better on the blogging and pictures are to come!!

Spring Break

FINALLY!! A break from school! Travis and I decided the week before spring break that we needed to get out of logan. We have in the past just had to work through spring break, but this year we have to work and go to school through the summer so we decided to go to Vegas for spring break! Ya I know very exciting! We drove down wednesday night after work with our friends Jason and Kylee. We stayed at my grandparents house in St. George wednesday night, then drove into vegas Thursday morning. Our friends had never been to Vegas so it was that much more fun. We stayed at the RIO. Home of the Chippendales! Travis wouldn't let me go....:( Just Kidding. We went to the Cirque Du Solei show "O" in the Bellagio. It was UNREAL! Jason's mom got us amazing tickets on the 8th row. We went to dinner in Caesars and wandered the strip. We laid by the pool friday and saturday morning. Went on the New York New York roller coaster and all the other vegas tourist things to do. ! And I'm not gonna lie I totally won playing roulette! I was going to take advantage of being 21 in vegas so we played a little at the tables, until we realized it was no fun to play when you are poor and loose your allowance all at once! But I was the winner for the weekend so I made up for Travis's losses....that 10 bucks from penny slots made a huge difference!! It was so much fun to just get away from school and work for a couple days, hang out in the sun with friends.

New Baby Nieces

I am blowing everyone's mind with my blogging today! I need a break from studying and keep my mind busy from fretting over the GRE. So last Thursday was a very big day in the Tolbert Family! Both my sister Tehmi, and sister-in-law Heather gave birth to darling little girls!! It was so much fun to see them. They both look exactly like their older sisters! Tehmi and Heather's rooms were right next door so we were able to jump back and forth visiting both girls and hang out as a family. I can't wait for them to get big and our house be chaotic with little girls! I love all four girls so much! It is my favorite part about going home. Here is some pictures from the hospital.

Friend Dinner

I have been getting a lot of crap because I am terrible at blogging, it is not that I suck at it, it's just that nothing exciting ever happens in our lives! Travis and I are very boring, we had a great Christmas break and spent lots of time with family and friends. Now back to school and work! We both go to school and work full time. We pass on campus and wave! I know very sad but we try to make time for each other on the weekends. Travis will graduate this coming december and I will graduate a semester after. I am about to begin applying to Vet school. Talk about NERVOUS! It will be great to get applied and done with that. We will go wherever they let me in. We are hopeful to stay out west and closer to family but who knows! There is an update on our lives...like I said pretty boring. I did get the chance over the break get together with all of my girlfriends. It was a blast to get together with everyone and catch up! Our lives have all become so crazy and hectic we tend to loose track, texting and facebook is amazing! We finally were able to all meet up and go to Happy Sumo, our favorite restaurant. Here are some pics from that night!

Love all you girls!
