I just found out moments ago that I passed my Praxis teaching test!!!! This test is a World and U.S. History test ranging from 1400 B.C. to Present history...unreal right!?  I was so nervous, because I left the test feeling very unsure.  I was positive I had failed.  Tay kept telling me he thought I passed, and...he's was right!  (and this time, I'm not the least bit nerved that he was right and I was wrong!).  Why is this news so exciting? Now, GRADUATION feels real!  In less than 20 days, I will be walking in a BYU cap and gown.  I am completely, 100% finished with EVERYTHING! I am ready to celebrate by going to California and lying on the beach all day.  Mama Gilbert and Regan...you ready for this!?  Because I AM!

Yes, I had just shed a few tears. I am just so happy!

This weekend, we had the chance to celebrate Rachel's (Ryan's wife) birthday.  It was so fun!  I think me, Taylor, Marci, and Tom were the only white people, and the only one's who didn't speak Spanish.  But it was so fun!  And everyone was so nice...even though we probably looked a little clueless sometimes.  We had a blast!

Happy birthday, Rachel! Isn't she beautiful?


  1. I'm pretty sure I'm white.

  2. hahhaah i was JUST going to make the same comment! ryan is white too. just because you speak spanish it doesn't make you brown.

  3. I felt that way about my Praxis tests, too! Scary, right? I'm glad it's over, and I'm glad you rocked it!
