A Letter

Dear Readers,

My husband is in an opera at BYU in two weeks. Opera kind of scares some people. (I don't blame you if it does. It's probably because you don't know much about it. I didn't...before I met my husband, I lumped it together with ballet as one of those semi-unapproachable art forms.) But this opera is a comic opera, so it should be funny. And, it's based on a SHAKESPEARE play! (Much Ado About Nothing.) So obviously the plot will be excellent and witty. Also, the dialogue (and there's a decent amount) is in English. What's not in English (all the songs) is in French, but don't worry there are subtitles. And, if you go on Thursday (June 9th) it's only $6. (Saturday the 11th is $10.) AND: if you talk to me, I can give you a coupon code when you buy your tickets to get $2 off each ticket. And, if you watch the movie version of Much Ado About Nothing, it'll prep you to appreciate the opera even more.

So, there's my plug. I hope you can come! Corey even has a legitimate role this time! (Claudio)

A Wife Who Would Be Sad For No One To Come Support The Opera Because She Knows How Many Hours of Work Her Husband Has Spent On It And Besides It Will Be Fabulous So Go Buy Your Tickets To Beatrice et Benedict Right Away!!!

indecision, a road trip, and a post-script

Currently my husband is signed up for no less than FIVE religion classes for the fall.
They are: Doctrine & Covenants (2nd half), Living Prophets, Pioneers & Persecution (1846-99), Doctrines of the Gospel, and Old Testament (1st half). It'll be interesting to see which ones make the cut, cause he ain't taking them all. (this semester)

In other news, I'm going to Las Vegas with mom and sister for SIX DAYS!! to party with other sister. Husband is left behind at school. It'll be interesting to see how this separation goes - the longest ever (by far) in our history of engagement/marriage. (Personally, I think we'll weather it quite nicely.)

PS: I graduated from college! Here's one teaser photo until I post more.
