Quick Update

So.... YES I have been a huge slacker when it comes to my blog but all for good reason! Lots of new and exciting things are in store for us this year. There are some really exciting things I wanted to post and share with our family and friends:

First- Joey and I are FINALLY graduating in 37 days!!!! Joey with his degree in Biology with a minor in German and mine in English Literature. It feels like its been a long road, but well worth it:)

Second- We are expecting another little GIRL in July! I think Joey was crossing his fingers for a boy, but we are both excited for Avery to have a sister; hopefully they'll be the best of friends:)

Lastly- Joey has been accepted to a Ph.D. program in Microbiology at the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences in Little Rock, AR! He makes a trip out there in a few weeks to take a tour of the campus and meet with the Professor(s) he'll be working with. If all goes well and he decides this is the program for him, we will be relocating to Little Rock the beginning of June! I am so proud of him :)

Lots of exciting changes and lots more work to do before graduation. Hopefully I can get on here very soon and update pictures of our growing family. (I only have 3 more papers and 4 tests left... not that I'm counting)

Thank you to all our friends and family who have helped get us to this point! & A SPECIAL THANKS TO DR. (Bro) BECKSTEAD FOR HIS ADVICE AND ALL HIS HELP (from taking Joey into his research lab for 3 semesters now, a letter of recommendation, help on his application and in preparing for his interview!) We feel so blessed :)
( I wanted to throw in a pic of Avery and the most recent one I have uploaded is this one from New Years... that just shows you how far behind school has put me!) I love this picture because as much as Joey hates to hear it, he is the perfect daddy for little girls! (& of course I'm a little biased)
