Unexpected...

I am about to utter [type] words I never, ever in a bajillion kazillion years thought I would utter [or type]...


We're moving back to Provo.

it's just two years, it's just two years, it's just two years, it's just two years...

That's right folks, my husband has officially decided to embrace the Cougar.
BYU MBA Class of 2013, here we come...

Heaven help us.

Let it be known that I am thrilled and grateful for this opportunity for our little family, just trying to come to terms with the idea of another Utah winter.

I am so happy for you guys and your decision! This means we need to hang out since you'll be so close. Congrats, again! Love ya!

Shannon said...

Ahh, I am SO excited! Our kids really can all be best friends now ;) Go Reece.

Amy said...

Oh man! Provo is so lucky!!!! :D I was sure after this week Utah had chased you far away to AZ forever.

Amanda said...

just keep reminding yourself that the CHEAP rent will allow you to save money for trips out to visit NYC and to see us! (because any money we have for coming out there on a trip is currently going towards our rent check) :).

CONGRATS! You'll have a blast.

Madelyn said...

Hey - Brian is attending the BYU MBA program this fall too! Maybe our husbands will become friends and Claire and Lole can be friends.....and me and you can be friends :)

Jessica and Reecey said...

Maddie that's awesome! We'll definitely have to support each other in our BYU MBA widow state :) Can't wait!

Eric and Lindsay said...

Congrats!! Yay yay. Welcome back to the Utah Valley Clubbers. We hate it! 8) haha

Ummmm . . . I don't know if Justin and I can bear the thought of entering Utah County to visit you guys. We might just have to go on a two-year hiatus from the Ivins family. ;) Just kidding! We're so happy for you guys! This just means you have even more reason for going on trips with us to escape the madness that is Provo. :) And I promise, we'll come visit you.

Katie said...

Woo! Provo is so great, lucky you! (okay, I don't like it that much. I'm counting the days until Forrest graduates ;-) but, I'm sure my sister is thrilled you aren't moving too far away :) Way exciting though!

MeganandClaudy said...

good for you guys! I can't wait until we have that decision to face! We'll have to get together and cook sometime! And at least do Orem, it's a least a little away from Provo...at least that's what I tell myself!

Kate said...

What is with all the Provo haters? :) I can imagine how absolutely thrilled your parents must be. Congratulations on this most exciting chapter for your little family!

Katie said...

Good thing you have a cute coat for the new little guy!

jaclyn said...

haha ya!! yay for provo! BYU has also made me a widow so can we please hang out? thank you in advance for saying yes.

Jessica and Reecey said...

Jaclyn, this means we will actually be able to meet up for lunch! No more failed attempts!

And since we'll be living so close, I vote we leave each other Carol/Anna notes in our mailboxes, just for old times' sake.

AJ and Cindy said...

you know how excited we are that you guys won't be too far away. although I don't know what I'll do not having you here on a day to day basis :( but, we know life is full of changes and that this is such a wonderful thing for you guys! love you lots

Jessica said...

Wahoo!! Ellie and I officially volunteer to show you guys all the hot spots--the good parks, the library, the duck pond. We're seeing a LOT of the duck pond lately.

I can't really profess to be a cougar (I attended for a semester and then transferred out again), but I love Provo! Even with this evil spring weather.

Proceed with caution dear Jessica, I returned to Provo for what was to be a short time after graduation. That was 21 years, a husband, an advanced degree and four children ago. --J Palmer

Jason and Kristin said...

Woo Hoo! So excited for you guys! You'll have a blast, I'm sure!

Cindy said...

I completly understand. I wished Casey to go somewhere else for law school. BYU is just such a cheap education it's nearly impossible to turn down. Good luck. My only advice... avoid living IN Provo if you can.
