A New Adventure?

SCHOOL. IS. DONE. As fun as this last semester and as crazy as next semester is going to be, I'm very grateful for a break. The end of the year was great. We wrapped it up right by following through with the Pflueger tradition of streaking through campus. We cleaned out our rooms (which took six hours) and moved all of our belongings back home. At the moment I can't shut my bedroom door...

So what's next on the list of things to do. This summer I'm mixing it up and steering away from late Tacoma summer nights, the 4th of July in California, spontaneous trips to Canada, and the obscene amounts of sleeping. Instead I'm going to be an au pair in Istanbul for a lovely family with two kids. I'm excited and a little nervous, but I'll be back just in time for RA training in August. I'll be sure to update this while I'm gone so everyone can check in for a detailed description of what I'm doing (or at least some cool pictures).

Here's a quote to get motivated to do what you really want to do this summer. No matter what it is. And a cute picture of our baby :)

Aye Aye Aye! Cinco de Mayo!

A day full of mustaches and sombreros. The last time we'll be able to throw a fiesta before summer. We pushed our three baby tables together, ate burritos from Tacey G, mass amounts of chips and salsa, and of course, our Jesus and Mary candles. It was a night that I just can't explain in words, therefore, I'll just explain with photos. Gracias mis amigos.

Birthday Adventure Time! Yeaaaah!

April 20th marked the anniversary of Hitler's birthday, the Columbine shooting, and national smoke some weed day. But more importantly, it was my golden birthday! To make up for a not-so-fantastic 19th birthday, we made sure to make this one the best. We celebrated at midnight with an awesome cake Audrey made, signs on my door, and an even better sign on my window ("It's my birthday! Honk!"), that is sadly still up almost two weeks later. Unfortunately the city of Parkland hasn't realized it's not birthday time anymore...

To super celebrate we decided to spend a fancy night in Canada. We got a hotel right off Granville with a king size bed and pull out couch. We of course went to Red Robin then got ready to go out. The night consisted of lots of moving around, lots of dancing, bearded men, and a cut foot. Nonetheless, it was awesome. Finishing the night with a giant pizza at 3 am, we went to bed and drove the hours back home Saturday morning.
