Happy Birthday Molly Miner!!!

Name: Molly Miner
Student’s Name: Lane Miner
Student’s Graduation Year:
Your Birthday: 3/30/1990
-Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I got my Associates degree at BYU-Idaho in general studies/English. I met Lane there as well. For me, it was love at first sight. It took longer for him to come around…but really not long at all. You’d make fun of me for how fast our dating process actually was. We got married in May 2010 and had Ella in July (4th of July actually..neat huh?) 2011. I am planning on getting my bachelors in ...haven’t officially narrowed it down yet.

I love being a wife and a mother. I love family. I miss being away from my fam but it’s been such a great experience to move away from home with my babe and husband. I’m kind of an independent person but I love being around people. I love meeting people and really getting to know them. I think that’s something I’m most passionate about—being surrounded by good people and really learning from them. I love being outside. I love learning and trying new things (experimenting), but usually I am no pro…just excited to give things a try. It’s easy for me to get excited about the littlest things. I’m kind of a kid. 

*what is one of your worst embarrassing moments?

I shared this with a few girlies a few days ago..and for some reason that’s giving me some justification. I hope I don’t regret this…but I want you to laugh and enjoy an embarrassing story. So here goes. Ok so before I share this let me just tell you that the 2nd-to-last time I wet the bed I was probably in kindergarten. Now, the last time?? Lane and I had been married for only a couple months and we knew each other pretty well..but we never slept together before we got married so that’s what makes it embarrassing. It was the middle of the night and I was having a dream. Dream: I was trying to get to the bathroom fast so I could go. I sat down and told myself, “Something feels weird. I don’t think I should, just go. You’re on the toilet.” So I went…but not just in my dream. I wet the bed. Yes, soaked the sheets. I had to explain to Lane that “I promise I don’t wet the bed.” It was hilarious. But I don’t think Lane was the one laughing.

*Who is your favorite musical group/band/singer?

I love jazz music. I really like old jazzy singers like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald. And I love the newer artists like Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, Colbe Caillat, Michael Buble, Nora Jones, Adele, Christina Perri, Ingrid Michaelson, Amos Lee…the list is endless. I cannot give you a short answer.
*If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?

Right now? An amusement park with Lane. We would have a blast. After we do that? Maybe Europe.

*What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

I can talk backwards phonetically.

Happy Birthday Erin Boehm!!!

Name: Erin BoehmStudent’s Name: Karl Boehm
Student’s Graduation Year: Who knows...supposedly 2015 but he wants to do the Anatomy Fellowship so we'll see.Your Birthday: 3/16/1982 (30 baby!!!)
Blog: (private but let me know if you want an invite).
-Tell us a little bit about yourself:
Graduated from UVU with my bachelors degree and then got married. Karl and I are coming up on our 7th anniversary in April.  We met in high school (some of you may have recently seen our dance picture...) but didn't start dating until 5 years later. Our kids are 3 and 1 (a few days after my birthday). We've been here for 2.5 years while Karl did the Masters in Anatomy Education; but now he's a first year med student.

While Karl pursues his dream, I'm living mine. I LOVE LOVE LOVE being at home to take care of my kids; my world revolves around my family. I've recently taken up sewing and I am having so much fun. I keep coming home with more and more fabric and Karl just laughs. I teach violin; its new for me and hard learning HOW to teach.
To say that I'm a chocoholic is a most significant understatement. I'm a chocolate JUNKIE; its been so bad lately... :) I rummage through the cupboards trying desperately to find some remnant, some crumb that I've previously overlooked. Although I haven't actually eaten Hershey's syrup directly out of the bottle...yet.

We love getting to know people and learning their stories. Life is good and we are so happy!
*what is one of your worst embarrassing moments?                                                                                     Besides Junior High and High school? One time I wore a dress to school, my underwear was way too big. As I was walking it slipped right down my legs so I had to bend down and pick it up. Don't worry, this was in Kindergarten.  
*if you could eat at any restaurant for your birthday what would it be?                                                       
Cafe Rio... 
*Who is your favorite musical group/band/singer?                                                                                  Somewhere in my mind, Michael Buble and Brandon Flowers are dueling over me. A sweet, sweet, musical duel... 

*What is one thing most people dont know about you?                                                                               When I was little, my picture was on the box of a little girl bike/trike. 
*If you could get any gift for your birthday this year what would it be? 
A MINIVAN. No comments you minivan haters. Minivans ROCK. :) 

*What was one of your favorite vacations?
Europe. I can't wait to go back again.

At some point, after finishing it, it fell into my seat. Of course not looking, I sit on in.....with pins in it. I stand up and its stuck to my bum. I was also wearing light tan khaki pants that day, and had to walk around with small blood dots on my pants. It was also our first period class....
*if you could eat at any restaurant for your birthday what would it be? Here in Kirksville? The Pear Tree! It's actually where I'm hoping we can go!

Happy Birthday Tera Gibb!!

Name: Tera Student’s Name: Nate
Student’s Graduation Year: 2014
Your Birthday: 3/04

I grew up in Utah and Oregon. I've been married for 8 years to my awesome hubby and couldn't be happier. I have two beautful kids (Tanner would be so mad for me saying that) so I have one beautiful girl who is almost 2 and one "COOL" 4 year old boy :) My husband is a 2nd year and we have actually really liked living here. I want to send a shout out to all my K-Vill Peeps that I've made since living here - I LOVE YOU and miss those who have already moved away! We will be heading to Lititz, PA in June for rotations and are SUPER excited to be close to so many fun things. However, sad to leave here and will miss everyone. I'm so not good at telling people about myself - what do you say really.......ummm... I love to work-out, run, wakeboard, craft, hang with my kids and hubby, have girl's nights, shop, eat dark chocolate, help people, movie nights, camp, try new things, jump out of planes and BE OUTSIDE!! 

*what is one of your worst embarrassing moments?
I actually just had one TODAY. I was listening to this new song on my phone in the car (volume all the up since it's hard to hear your small phone while driving in the noisy car) by myself, heading over to get the SAA mail from the Admissions office. I got a call on my way over which pauses your music. I talked all the way up to the admissions door and right when I hung up and opened the door, the music resumed and was SO LOUD! I couldn't get it turned off for like 2 minutes. Everyone was just staring at me like who is this..... some terrorist....k not that bad but I was so embarrassed which doesn't happen too often. I apologized and got the heck out of there :)

*if you could eat at any restaurant for your birthday what would it be?
Happy Sumo 

*If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?
Back to Italy!!!
