I GOT INTO DENTAL HYGIENE SCHOOL!!!!
I want to tell you exactly how that special moment went down in history.
I woke up on a regular Wednesday morning, grabbed the mail and casually started sorting through the pile. Just until my hands got a hold of a particular letter with the big letters UCDH (Utah College of Dental Hygiene) in the upper left-hand corner. My.heart.stopped. A normal human would rip that bad boy open within one second but I just couldn't help but stare. I noticed that it was far too thin and little to be some type of vicory letter. So mentally, I prepared for the worst news. I started racking my brain on how I was going to break the news to Chase. So very slowly, and sadly, I opened the letter and read at the top:
CONGRATULATIONS Ashley Richards!!! We are excited to announce that you have been accepted to the January 2013 Dental Hygiene program here at UCDH.....
I couldn't even keep reading, I immediately fell to my knees and started balling like a baby. I stayed curled up in a ball and couldnt help but cry out a prayer of thanks to my heavenly father. I felt so lucky, blessed, excited, scared and ready for this new chapter in my life. I felt like all my hard work had actually paid off! The husb and I celebrated over Martinelli and a delicious sushi dinner.
I AM SO STOKED!!Since then, I have bought my four pair of wine colored scrubs, a lab coat with my initials embroidered above the left pocket, got my CPR license, had a physical and have gotten 11 immunizations (I know.) I have been a busy busy girl. So please excuse my absence dear friends.
