Happy Birthday Christine O'Loughlin!!

Name: Christine O'LoughlinStudent’s Name: Daniel
Student’s Graduation Year: 2015
Your Birthday: 12/28/1987
Blog: christinehonore.blogspot.com
-Tell us a little bit about yourself:
Aside from the college years, I've lived in California all my life. I graduated in 2010 in Family LIfe- Human Development. I met Daniel at school my sophomore year in college- liked him from day 1 and never looked back :). We've been married for almost 3 1/2 years. Among other things, I enjoy eating, exercising, drawing, dancing, crafting, and reading.

*what was the best job you ever had? In high school I worked as an executive assistant to a well- known wedding planner from my area. Considering I'm a lover of love and most mushy stuff, this was a dream come true job. I was not only able to be around lots of happy couples, celebrating their special day, but I was apart of setting up and running these fabulous, over the top weddings! Each one was so beautiful, with a different theme and style. It was fun to see how everything came together, and then watch everyone enjoy the evening.
*What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time? Spend time with my hubby and eat!
*What is one thing most people dont know about you? I've  never broken a bone.

*What was one of your favorite vacations? One of the vacations that sticks out in my mind was one when my family and I stayed  on Coronado Island in San Diego. We didn't do anything particularly exciting, aside from riding bikes on the trails and playing tennis. But something about relaxing and spending time with my family on this little island really stuck with me, and this trip has been one of my favorites ever since.

your birthday: 12-22

About myself.... this is not my favorite topic but here goes... I have been married to my husband for 9 years now. We will have our 10 year anniversary the weekend after graduation and I am so excited for both. I love this time of our life right now and look forward to each new step that we get to take. My husband and I are both from" Sunny" St. George. We are hoping to end up there after all of this. We have 4 beautiful kids, Hallie 7, Annie 5, Barry 3, and Natalie 1. And yes, we want one more but not sure when that will be. Right now we live in Ohio and have really enjoyed our time here. Some of the things that I love to do are: being a mom, running, photography, some crafting (I am not the best but I still enjoy it), and watching movies with my husband.

-If I could go anywhere in the world at this very moment, it would be Disney World with my kids and of course, sleep in Cinderellas castle!
-I absolutely love Pride and Prejudice ( the new one) and Lord of the Rings extended version. Totally opposite I know but both great movies!
-Favorite thing to do in spare time would be going on a long run or hanging out with my husband!

-Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I was born and raised in Aurora, Colorado. I have four sisters, four brothers, and 37 nieces and nephews.  My dad is a full-blooded Greek and if he could’ve had it his way, there’s a good chance I would’ve been named Zorba. I am the spitting image of my mom, I believe soup is its own food group, and Life cereal has healing powers. I’ve finger-painted with ketchup and mustard and I LOVE vocal jazz. I have the strangest, most vivid dreams known to man that would be a dream interpreter’s gold mine, and I have been told that I wiggle my toes while sleeping.  My first name means "strong and womanly" and I take pride in that. I am living the dream as a mom to two-month-old Scarlett and I have the most giving and self-less husband in the world. I believe in trust more than I believe in love, and I know I can always trust in the Lord. 

*what is one of your worst embarrassing moments? I left a movie theater once to go to the bathroom and when I came back it was a really dark intense scene and I couldn't find my seat so after several minutes of walking up and down the aisle I finally had to shout for my friends. People were NOT happy.

-Tell us a little bit about yourself:

Grew up in Bentonville, Arkansas. I have been married 6 years now and we have two beauties Laynie and Norah. I love decorating, dancing (especially salsa), painting, and cooking. I never thought I would say this, but I have loved living in K ville and can't wait to spend another year here!

*If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be? Too many places, but either Italy to stuff my face and the romance, or Thailand to stuff my face and ride an elephant!
*Best birthday memory? When my husband surprised me before we were married and took me on a private plane ride to see all the Christmas lights, followed by an amazing dinner in a really nice restaurant, then to an overlook of the city where he serenaded me and then we danced (wow this sounds like a cheesy chick flick but I swear it happened :)

Happy Birthday Christian Potter!!!

Name: Christian PotterStudent’s Name: JamesStudent’s Graduation Year: 2013Your Birthday: 12/11/84Blog: jamesandchristian.blogspot.com (email me for an invitation)
-Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I grew up in Utah and Tennessee. I love the West and I love the South, so Missouri really suits me. I have an English degree but don't read very much...at all. I keep promising myself that I will one day read all the books I was supposed to have read before I graduated. We'll see. But I LOVE writing and editing papers. I know, I'm weird. I enjoy cooking, listening to and (when no one's around) singing to almost anything but particularly soft rock, oldies, and broadway stuff, occassionally reading a good book, watching movies, and being with my husband and kids.  
*if you could eat at any restaurant for your birthday what would it be?     -In Kirksville--Colton's or La Fuente. Anywhere--Tucanos (Utah) or Maggiano's (St. Louis--You HAVE to eat there!!!!!!).
*What is your favorite tv show?
    -"Dancing With the Stars". I'm addicted. (I'd be addicted to "So You Think You Can Dance," but they don't show it online and I don't have tv.) I LOVE to watch dancing. I don't dance, but I think the human body in motion to music is breath-taking.
*What was the best job you ever had?
    -The job where I made the most money was working at Cracker Barrel in TN. I worked 50-70 hours a week and, although it was crazy being a 19-year-old "manager" there, I had a fat paycheck that usually made up for it. But the best job I've ever had was working at a hotel as a front desk clerk while attending junior college. It was so easy that I always got my homework done and usually had time to watch a movie or hang out with the other desk clerks that lived there. Not that I didn't do anything productive... I had several responsibilities, including editing my boss's emails and letters and managing some of his organization (He wasn't big on computers or skilled in grammar, and lucky for me, I was!) My boss was the absolute coolest. He let me off whenever I needed it and worked around my schedule. Whenever my boss, the owner of the hotel, made rennovations, which was basically constantly, I would crack up as the four boys and their dad worked together because they were all so crazy and funny. I'm so glad I married the oldest boy!
*If you could get any gift for your birthday this year what would it be?
    -$1,000 for clothes for me and my family. 
*What was one of your favorite vacations?
    -As a kid with my family, we took a 4-week trip across the country in a van...Two parents, six kids, and a grandma cramped in our van was not that much fun at the time, but the memories we made far outweigh the whining and crying and complaining we did. We saw a lot of the Mormon history sites, visiting as many as possible in that month. We saw Phantom of the Opera on Broadway, the Statue of Liberty, and the White House (Pres. Clinton was walking out as we drove by.) and a lot of the cool stuff in D.C. I honestly can't even remember all the other places we went to, but I just know I look back on that time with nothing but joy and appreciation. I still can't believe my parents did that for us.
    My favorite vacation with James was to San Diego. He surprised me with the trip for our first Christmas together (married for 2 months), giving me clues in separate boxes, waiting to give me the best part, the biggest gift, until the last so I would KNOW what was going on--incredible tickets to Wicked, the musical! We drove there and back and just had a great time visiting Sea World, the harbor, and the play and enjoying our time together as newly weds. Can you believe that trip beat out our trip to Hawaii as one of my favorites?!

I hail from a little city in northern Utah where I moved when I was 13. I lived in Texas, Minnesota, California, and New Mexico before my family settled in Utah-- Medical School/Air Force-- so I know the drill. I have a bachelors in English and Psychology and a Masters in Political Science. I was a high school teacher, hence the need to "talk loud" and get people's attention. I love traveling to distant lands, meeting interesting people, reading Shakespeare, skiing deep powder, hiking steep peaks, running- still learning to love this one- and then coming home to my killer attractive husband. 

Two truths and a lie:
1 I have a bionic knee
2 I have lived with a Dutch woman 
3 I have taken every standardized test available MINUS the MCAT & DMAT.

 I was born and raised in South Jordan and West Jordan, Utah.  I first met my husband when I was three years old and we lived in the same neighborhood.  I wrote him a get-well card when he was in the hospital for pneumonia, and when he turned five, I went to his pirate birthday party.  And then I moved away. I met him a second time while we were both attending BYU, but we didn't figure out our previous connection until after we were engaged. Phil and I were married two years ago and had our first son, Gabe, earlier this year. I studied Linguistics at BYU, and hope to someday get my graduate degree in Spanish Literature.  I love languages and learning about other cultures.  National Geographic was my bible growing up.  I also enjoy tennis and piano.  We are loving Kirksville so far and are excited for the next two years (at least) ahead!

Blog: pizzaandrootbeer.blogspot.com

My husband is in his second year of his anesthesia residency and we have been living in Kirksville for six years now.  If you have any questions about living in the area, I would love to try and help.  I grew up in California, but we moved here from Provo, UT where my husband and I attended BYU.  I studied Comparative Literature there.  Bobby and I have been married for ten years now.  We have three fun little girls (Franny, Sophie, and Claire) and a fourth girl on the way!  I totally thought it was a boy and earlier this year I announced it on my blog and on Facebook and I still haven't gone back to announce it's a girl.  Some of my relatives, high school friends, etc, still think I'm having a boy.  By the by, I do not recommend those early detection gender tests you can buy at Walgreens.  :)  I figure by the time my girls are all grown I will be an expert at hair-styling and wedding-planning.  I love my girls and we are all so excited to welcome baby Mabel into our family this November.  I love to cook and I love to talk about food and share recipes.  I also enjoying sewing, reading, and watching movies.  I don't mean to brag, but I am awesome at Words with Friends.  My username is schnitzelplease... bring it on.  (Kari P- I still need to start a game with you.)  I love my family and my favorite time is when we're all at home together just hanging out.  We have loved our time in Kirksville and the wonderful friends we've made since we've been here.

2 Truths and a lie:

1.  So far this year I have been to 17 different states.

2.  My first car was a '69 Camaro.

3.  We have lived in three different houses since we moved to Kirksville.

I've been to all 7 continents.

Happy Birthday Josilyn Olsen!!!

Name: Josilyn Olsen (Jossi for short)
Student’s Name: Ryder Olsen
Student’s Graduation Year: 2014
Your Birthday: July 23
Blog: I have every intention to start one someday, but for now, I'm not a blogger. I'm still under my maiden name on facebook, Josilyn Robinson.

I'm from the quaint town of Pleasant Grove, Utah. I've lived there my entire life, aside from a small amount of time I spent in Texas for school. I graduated in public health from Utah Valley University in 2009 and married my incredible husband in 2010. I have a dog named Tank (the name fits him very well). I look at life as one big adventure and am always ready to take on my next challenge. My husband is on the HPSP scholarship, so it's been interesting for us to adopt so many lifestyle changes at once (med school, moving, military, etc.), but I strive everyday to enjoy each change to the fullest and come out of each experience having learned something new. I have many hobbies, especially when it comes to the outdoors and exercise. I love to bike, hike, camp, ski/snowboard, play sports and practice yoga (the list could go on and on). Since I've been married, I've found joy in many domestic activities too. I love to decorate, entertain, cook, read and craft (who knew). I love meeting new people and am always open to creating new relationships.
Two truths and a lie about me:
1. I'm a wedding planner at home in Utah.
2. I hate chocolate.
3. I would rather spend an entire day shopping in a whole foods grocery store than shopping anywhere for clothes.
