New home

Yup. We now live in Inkom, here the story:
Like I mentioned earlier Matt and I had been looking at homes to buy.  Don't worry its totally not going to happen we just liked the idea of a new place I think.  Instead of looking at houses we started to look into different housing places.  We came to the decision the it takes to much to pack up and move for just a few dollars cheaper a month.  Well Sunday night while laying in bed we got to talking and Matt said why shouldn't we just move in with one of our parents, if his boss will let him switch routes.  Well you guessed it we talked to both parents and we had the okay to move into both of their houses, and since we couldn't pick we left it up to Matts boss.  We told him the whole reason we would be moving in with our parents is to save money so that we won't have to work, or take out any loans during school.  So Matt would need as many charters (they pay more just a normal days run, and they are more fun because you get to go to new places, sight see, and get paid to vacation.  Not to mention I can still go on some!) We knew that there was going to be lots of charters out of SLC and lots out of Pocatello.  We needed to know that he could be getting as much money as possible and his boss said that he could work more out of Pocatello, and when there wasn't any charters then he could still do the Boise run.  We didn't hear back from him till around 1 on Monday though.  Matt called me up and said "are we crazy?"  I said yes but it would be stupid not to make the move and save thousands of dollars.  So that's just what we did.  I started packing up the house right then.  When Matt got home from work we packed George and Howard (our 2 Honda civics) and took the first load down to Inkom.  We slept over that night, borrowed Uncle Sams horse trailer and truck ( THANK YOU!!) and headed back up (Matt, Karl, and I). We got to work right when we got there I started packing up things in anything thing I could find and Matt and Karl packed it in the trailer (we fit it ALL, now that's a miracle if you know how much stuff we have!)  We lost my coco latte maker :( while driving on the freeway but other than that we made it safely back down.  Mom and Dad Hunt were nice enough to let us store all of our things in their storage room so we didn't even have to by a storage unit.  The next two days we un packed and made the basement our new home.  And that brings us up to date.  In the matter of hours we decided to move and started packing.
Oh and if you were wondering about our house it's still on the market but as soon as we put it up we got about 4 calls on it.  Our manager thinks it will be sold this week which is a blessing as well.
Can I just say how nice it is to be with family.  If we would have stayed in Rexburg we would be the only ones there no friends, no family, and I don't think I could have lasted all summer like that.  Its such a blessing to be down here and such a breath of fresh air.  Even though it was crazy fast (and yet really exciting) we know it was the right thing, it just worked out perfectly!
Matt even taught me how to ride a motorcycle yesterday, he is so patient and calm when he teaches me things, I can't wait for him to be a dad he is going to be the best!  I only killed it like twice and caught on to it pretty fast.  I love finding new hobby's together :)  I am thankful everyday for how hard working he is.  Another thing I forgot to mention was during this whole process of moving I have been sick, can't breath, sore  throat, headache, acing body, no voice, sick.  And he still made time to help me out, make me rest, and take care of me.  I have the best husband in the world and is thankful everyday!

PS.  I got a 3.8 GPA this last semester while taking 15 credits! Whoop whoop!! Only 2 more semesters to go!!

Schools out!

Yup... I am officially done with school until next fall- and then only 2 more semesters to go!! whoop whoop I am almost a Professional Preschool teacher. I guess right now  I am only a preschool teacher.  But i'll take it! My first semester of preschool labs was crazy, scary, fun, exciting, HARD WORK, challenging, but totally worth it.  I am excited for my lead semester because I wont be the new kid on the block anymore, but it is also the hardest year with the most days teaching, which means more lesson plans (I guess I already know what I am doing this summer...)  But boy am I glad to be done with school!! yahoooo
My first preschool class... don't mind that I look like a giant standing in the back... AWKWARD! 

Mindy, Mike, and kids are on their way as I am writing this!  I can't wait to see them, we are babysitting the little ones while they go to Mikes brothers graduation.  Bummer for them.  We have lots of fun thing planned tonight, some of which include decorating Easter eggs :)  Pictures to come! We are having a BIG breakfast in the morning with the whole shah-bang- eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, etc... Be Jealous. Followed by a Easter egg hunt and more parting!  I LOVE holidays and even more when you get to spend it with family- mostly kids though.  Holidays are just more fun with little kids!  Welp the maintenance man is back (our stove is being dumb and making really weird noises but of course they don't make them when he is here... ugh!)  I'll post pictures after our fabulous but squishy (7 people in a 2 bedroom house... heheh) weekend :)

Happy Easter Everyone!! 
Remember... its not all about the candy but the Resurrection of our Savior!

PS.  yesterday I was in shorts, flip flops, and sunglasses... today pants, boots, gloves, hat, and a coat- Dang Rexburg! Spring means no snowing. DuH.

With love, Brielle

Dreams can come true!

After years of wanting to go to New York, my parents are finally there!  I am so excited for them, and the things they are going to bring me ;) heheh.  My mom gave the trip to my dad for Christmas.  We even had to pause conference at times so that my dad could make some phone calls, I guess he was just so excited he couldn't wait!
This is how they were most of conference... hehehe They just couldn't stop planning their trip!  The left late last night on the Red Eye so that they wouldn't waist anytime!  Just another example that everyday dreams can come true! :) Have fun mom and dad, be safe! :)
