So I sold a skull on ebay...

So…I sold a skull on ebay….

Before you think I’m a total creeper, read the story!!

Alex needed a new desk (for his shiny new computer :-P) Emily and I had seen a really nice one at a garage sale a few weekends ago and so when I got home I told Alex about it. We decided to go check it out before church – it was exactly what he was looking for so we decided to buy it for $50. Later that night he was getting it all set up and called me into the room because he “had something to show me”….I walk into the room and he is holding a SKULL! After being totally freaked out for a few minutes (did I need to call the police?!) we realized that it was a skull that they use in medical/dental school (it had the springs on the jaw and some wax on the teeth, looked like they had been practicing on it). We weren’t sure what to do with it so we just put it back in the drawer.

Fast forward a few days…

Alex and I are both at work and he IM’s me telling me that Barker (his friend/coworker) told him that skulls are worth a lot of money! Apparently he had looked into getting one as a decoration once (weird, I know haha) and said they go for a couple hundred dollars! I listed it on ebay and we ended up selling to a really nice man who either collects skulls (yikes!) or is going to turn around and re-sell it. Either way, that turned out to be the cheapest desk ever!!

Before I packed it up I spent some time with the skull (bahahah now I totally sound like a weirdo) and kept wondering what their life was like; what was their name? where did they live? what did they do? did they like Disneyland?

Here are some pictures of our skull...



Who wants a puppy?!

We do!

I have wanted to get a dog since the day we signed our lease and I saw that we were allowed :) It didn't really make sense for us to have one during the school year though because we were always so busy and I would definitely feel guilty leaving the little guy (or girl!) home all day alone. But Alex recently got a job where he gets to work from home! Working from home means he will have time to take care of a dog :) We still haven't decided if the time is right but we did humor ourselves and go to a pet adoption a few weeks ago and met Holly...

isn't she cute?!

We didn't end up adopting her (or any of her furry friends) but when the time is right we will go back to the shelter and find a forever friend <3

The Pharm

I was lucky enough to spend 10 days at the Pharm this year. It was so much fun (like always) and I can't wait to go back (like always). I didn't get to do everything on my "to do in Michigan" list but I guess that just gives me an excuse to go back soon ;)

In a nutshell, the trip was full of parades, family, pharm work, the drive in, the pond, laughter and Justin Bieber dances (once I figure out how to upload video to this, you are in for a treat!). I'm so glad I got to spend so much time up there and am looking forward to next summer!

Why hello there

Wow! It has been a long time since I have posted!

I have a lot to update you on but first I want to wish a happy anniversary to my mommy and Ed. It was hard for me to pick just one picture from the wedding because they are all really cute so here are a few of my favorites...

My mommy was a beautiful bride (and look how handsome Trey was!...he still is hehe)
