so this will be a very lame post. It's all updates.

1. we moved over the weekend. we now live in West Valley with Charles' mom until we leave for Russia next month.

2. My mom is flying in for Emile's wedding today. the wedding's not today. Just the flying. And I'm going to go get her!

3. Emile's going through the temple tomorrow and getting married on Saturday.

4. I'm graduating on Friday.

5. Charles is a very good packer. I'm glad I had him while we were moving, because I'm such a spaz, and he's so calm and collected. I just love that guy!

I'll get to the tags as soon as possible, but internet is kind of hard at Jean's. Not sure it'll be that great in Moscow either, but where there's a will there's a way. That's what I've heard, anyway.

I used to be unique, until I got married and sold out (literally) and changed my name. I never planned to change my last name, but we ended up having the same last name because of all the checks we got for the wedding written out to "Charles and Molly Campbell." That makes me a sellout. Recently I've begun to wonder if there is a way to change it back, and while Charles is supportive of the idea, I have also become very attached to the name Campbell. I want to have the same last name as my kids, too. Can you just give kids whatever last name you want? Then I could choose one for me and for my kids. Or maybe they can be Meppen-Campbells. I don't see either of our families being very enthusiastic about that idea. Mostly I'm writing this entry to freak my mom out. Got ya!

Conspiracy Theory

PeterPanism of the day.

So, with all of our friends suddenly growing up, getting married, and having babies, Charles and I have started talking about the next phase in our lives, and we have ultimately decided that we will never grow up.
We have instituted a few new rules to make sure that we are never tempted to grow up:
1. Ice cream is a nutritional choice for dinner at least once a week. We reccommend Ben and Jerry's cream cheese brownie, chocolate fudge brownie, or creme bruleee. These flavors have the most nutrients, and the most chunks of delicious gooey brownie.
2. Sleepovers are a nightly occurrence. Flashlights and all.
3. Always observe the golden rule, unless the other person started it. Then get even. For example, if your husband uses your toothbrush, it is only fair that you wear his favorite socks the next day. They need not fit, but he must not know they are missing until he sees them in the laundry basket the next night. Bear in mind, however, he will be free to get even after that. So make sure you hide your Easter candy.
With these rules in mind, you too can be a perpetual kid. Join us if you dare!

Shannon's getting married!

Shannon's getting married on August 8, 2008 in the San Diego temple! She came up for conference with the love of her life and we got to hang out with them and get to know Keith. I totally approve of him, and I can't wait to see their babies! Shannon and I had a bet going over who would get married first. I defied all odds, and had to pay her $20 because of it. But I'm going to get it back when she has babies first. So the sooner the better!
