Get to the livin' part of life...

Hello all! I guess you could say we jumped on the bandwagon and created a blog for ourselves. The thing is - I'm not that good at all this technology stuff - I'm going to make an effort to figure it out, it could be beneficial someday! Anyway - I think this is something for Ben and I to do together and let our families know what we've been up too!

Today was a big day for us - Ben officially defended his master's thesis on E. Coli interventions in very small slaughter facilities. I'm very proud of him, he's got a long road ahead of him to get things done for graduation in May, but we're heading in the right direction.

Myself on the other hand am struggling to get my thesis completed. It has taken twice as long to write as I anticipated, however - I think I am on track to graduate in August! Very close to the 1/2-way point! I am sure no one every claimed a graduate degree was easy - or everyone would have one!

We're headed to Manhattan tomorrow - Ben was asked to judge lamb showmanship at the Little American Royal at K-State. We are looking forward to a brief trip down (we haven't been there since our wedding) - to see old friends, grab lunch in Aggieville, and then head home!

I'm sure the face of our page will change over the next few days, weeks, and months as I (I should say "we" but Ben has already assured me that I will be doing the typing) get the hang of this blogging thing! Have patience and keep checking back!

P.S. I successfully posted a picture to our's one of the more recent one's from Matt and Lyndsey's wedding back in November!

  1. Yeah, I am so excited that you have started your blog, and I love the name of it. Good luck to both of you on your thesis. I give you a lot of credit for going through all that work. Looking forward to rest of the posts!
