Full House just got a little fuller.

Big Announcement. Beginning this July we will be spending the next 3 years of our life in the fabulous city of San Fransico. Joining our dearest friends, the Tanners of course! 

Christopher got the call to seal the deal of his acceptance to the University of Pacific Dental School. 3,500 applicant and only 130 admitted. I am pretty proud. We can't wait. I think San Francisco is such a special place. 
 It Looks like I am averaging about one blog a month but stay tuned because I have lots of catching up to do. Motorcycle purchases, bridal shower, nursing stories, Notre Dame kicking Utah's trash, Notre Dame kinda kicking USC's trash, Thanksgiving fun, oh and a special little new delivery named Elliotte Jane Haack. Enjoy your cozy winter days...

Orbit gum and a Safeway parking lot

Tomorrow is a very special day for Christopher and I.Five years ago we kissed. Little did we know that at sixteen and seventeen years old, it would be the beginning of our life together.The night began hanging out at a friend's house enjoying an Italian feast called Bonyacalda slathered in garlic and anchovies( this is where the Orbit gum comes in handy). Setting the stage for a romantic evening right? After we finished Christopher asked if he could drive me home instead of my friend. I politely declined but she insisted I ride with him so I nervously agreed to it and hopped in the car with the most handsome, rootbeer eyed boy you ever saw. For whatever reason we stopped in the Safeway parking lot and ran into the store. 

Afterwards Christopher came to my side of his truck and was giving me the "I really want to kiss you look" and obviously I was a little self-conscious about my breath and asked him for a piece of gum. Well Mr. Smooth Operator happened to have a piece of original flavored Orbit gum in his mouth and looked at me with an "am I really going to do this face" and said, " you can have a piece of this gum" both he and I knew it was the oldest line in the book but it worked and I just couldn't resist that particular piece of gum. 
We got back into the truck to and now nervously awaited the goodbye kiss. This moment was interrupted by Mrs. Alexis Hansen ( owner of the "Mom Radar Award" that she so proudly wears). She just happened to be waiting for me, so Christopher was able to say goodnight to both "Mrs. Hansen" and myself all at the same time. I will never forget that night. It was perfect. Hollywood most definitely would not put this into a romantic first kiss script anytime soon but that's what is so great about it. No one else has the same story. It's ours. Five years later my heart still stops everytime we kiss. 

I love you Christopher Albert. Happy Anniversary ( I know you are officially embarrassed and might be harassed in the locker room should a member of the team run across this but please forgive me I can't help how cute you are).

Life as we know it.

This is a pretty monumental moment, my first blog entry. I would like to make a  shout out to my sister Rachel: I apologize for mocking your blog endeavors...I am taking a bite of humble pie as I type this. I must admit I was skeptical of this whole thing but Facebook isn't really cutting it for me. So in order to share my life and stay connected with those I love, I have found my solution. Please forgive me for my grammatical errors I am a nursing student, not an english major. I can insert a catheter no problem but this is more intimidating than I expected. This is an exciting time in my life and I want to be able to share it all and document it as my new life begins with the love of my life, Christopher. I thought I would start by sharing a piece of our life and what we do. How can I best describe it? Skype. Airplanes. Holidays. That's what we live for. Christopher is in his last year at Notre Dame and I graduate this June with my nursing degree. I recently went to one of his football games and documented the trip to show a tiny piece of our lives. This should be fun.

Love, Sarah
