Lieutenant Payne

It happened!!!! Yes, Tyler is now officially a graduate and an officer! He graduated with his bachelors, masters, and commissioned into the U.S Army all in one day! I am so proud of my amazing husband and all that he has accomplished. Through all the classes, meetings, major assignments, capstone project, ROTC, and bishopric tasks, he has always put the Lord and his family first. And the thing about all of it is that he made it look so EASY! He was born a true leader, and has a gift for dealing with stress and always being positive about any situation. I love him so much and am so grateful that the Lord blessed me with a Moroni-like husband. He is a solider.

We packed up and headed out of College Station this week. It was defenatly a bittersweet moment. So many things have happened since my Dad first dropped me off at the Corps dorms. I found myself and my soul mate in College Station. I will never forget what I learned there and all the amazing friends I've made. Gig'em Ags!

Rachel and I were in the check-out line at Walmart last week and this elderly woman in line behind me gestured at Rachel's hair and said, "Looks like she found some static."
I giggled and said, "No, actually her hair always looks that."
She just looked at me very confused like and went on her way.

Well, I can tell you she didn't get it from me...

Nana B. and I went to the Baby Gap about a month and a half ago to look for an Easter dress for lil' Rach.... and guess what I found!!!!!!!!!!!!!? JELLY SHOES! Yes, I'm in love. I remember wearing those things around everywhere when I was a kid, and LOOK they still have them. And they have gotten even cuter. :)Nana got Rachel two pairs... clear and pink. I know what you're thinking... goodness gracious, Converse and now Jellies!? haha, sorry, It's a curse.

It just so happened that Tyler and I went on a temple date last weekend, and I being the schemer that I am found a way to get to the woodlands for dinner... and as you may have guessed, the Baby Gap is in the Woodlands.... sneaky sneaky! And well... I saw orange and was sold on the spot. Tyler just rolls his eyes and says... Okay, that's it! Buy 'em and lets get outta here! That was just fine with me... I was complete, I had orange jellies in my hand, seriously, what else could I need and I can't find at a garage sale? hahaha!
