Instead of posting about Nick's life for him, we've decided to start our own joint blog, which will hopefully take the place of this one.
So, go check it out! I'm baptizing it today with its first post: http://nikkiandnick.blogspot.com (and don't worry, my name isn't first because I created it; my name is first because the other way was already taken!)
See you there!

He has a blog.
This is me plugging his blog.
He has a lot of writings that he's doing at work, with his very recent job change. But some other things, like grad school options.
And basically, I think you should read it or add it to your list of blogs you read or whatever you people do.
Because I love that he's writing, and professional, and keeping a blog!
Oh, wait, I'm not sure if I've linked it for you yet. ;) His blog is here.

Here she is on the ride home from the humane society, cooperating nicely (although she wanted to sit on Nick's lap while driving... oops!)
Holly is very loving and somewhat mellow, although she loves attention. Here she is hanging out on the couch with me on Saturday afternoon while Nick went to catch the Gophers game. Maybe she's sad the Gophers lost??
She's such a joyful dog, we are already head over heels in love with this girl. We're so glad we've adopted a dog!

For as long as we've been parking there, our neighbors have been precariously parked. Crooked, skewed, sometimes creeping into our spot. It hasn't always been super horrible, and we understand that it's a tricky spot to get into.
This week, though, the parking has gotten to be quite atrocious. This morning we walked out to the situation pictured below. Nick, who drives us to work every day, had to walk around the car and get in from the rear because he couldn't get between the cars at the front.
More than anything, we wonder if some morning we're going to walk outside and find out that we've been hit because of the poor parking job.
See what we mean? You'll see a car clearly encroaching in our lane, and, worse, creating almost no space for us to get out without hitting the car.
We don't know whose spot it is. There are 20 parking spots and they're not assigned by us, so we can't, nor would we, hunt down the drive and approach him. Although I'm tempted to leave a note.
My only plea is that if this driver park so horribly, that he please realign himself to allow us some exiting room. After realigning, then he can put his Club back on the steering wheel.

This weekend, we went through all 675 pictures (eek!) and picked our favorites. I had 133 favorites, Nick had 125. Out of that, we agreed on 40. Hrm... well, we'll have to learn how to compromise! We're putting pictures into an amazing scrapbook that my cousin, Christina, made for us. It's all set to go, we just have to put in the pictures.
Oh, and I remembered some of our most exciting news. We're going to grad school!! Nick will be going next fall for a 2-year program for a Master's of Science in Technical Communication. He'll be done in May 2013 and ready to technically communicate with the world. :)
In 2 years, I'm going to a 2-year program for a Master's in Social Work. I'm not quite decided on where I'll be going, I just know that I'll be starting in 2 years, finished May 2014. Then we'll be full of higher education and ready to take on the world. Quite literally. I mean, we're going to lift up the world just the two of us and hold it in our hands. Really. Belive me, I'm honest about this one.
That's our big news. We're super excited about getting the education to do things we're passionate about. I'm personally excited to have the prospect of a job that doesn't sit me in front of a computer for 8 hours a day.
