Buckeye Country Here We Come!!

After searching far and wide for the right MBA program for Kevin we have finally chosen where we are going to spend our next two years! We were able to visit many schools including University of Texas, University of Maryland, Brigham Young University and Ohio State University. In all of our travels one school fit us the best, and it turns out its Ohio State.

When Kevin sent his essay for OSU he wrote that he loved the school and the program, the only thing that they didn't sell him on was Columbus and Buckeye Football. So it looks like we have a couple of things to get used to, but we are all excited to be starting school again!!

We will only be two hours away from my parents which will be a big help. Part of me is really sad that I won't be near my brothers at BYU, but I think Ohio will be another fun adventure for us. We are probably moving in July, which I know is going to come way to fast. We  have been here in Philly for almost four years now, which almost makes a tie for the longest I have lived anywhere. Needless to say it will be very sad to leave, but I have made many good friends that I will have forever. 

I am also excited about being in Ohio because it is near Twinsburg, Ohio. Every year they have the twins festival there, so Corinn and I are planning on going in August for the first time! 
Well we have a lot of work to do......yay for packing and moving. This should give me a good chance to go through all of my junk and get rid of the things I don't need. 

I am done blabbering! I hope to see most of you on Friday at my Pampered Chef Party! Ciao!

Congratulations on making a decision. Only two hours from your parents? You can't beat that! I'm glad you finally know what the future holds. Congratulations!

Yay for making a decision!! I know it has been a tough choice and a lot of work. I am happy for you but sad for us. :) But that Twin Festival sounds AWESOME!

And I am SO looking forward to the Pampered Chef party. Did I ever tell you how much I LOVE their stuff?

That's THE Ohio State University. You will have to get used to that, before you get in trouble for it. They're a little touchy about the school's proper name in Columbus.

Congratulations you guys! I'm sure you'll really like it there Kevin. Let us know when you need help packing. We'll be glad to help with everything (not that we want you to leave or anything! Ha!) See you Friday.

Congratulations, Kevin and Kelsey! I know you'll love it in Ohio. Best of luck. Sure wish it had been BYU though. I'll bet so does Kris!

That's right "The Ohio State" is the correct way to say it, and believe me, you will get in trouble if you don't say it with the respect! Nick is proud that you are moving to the Celestial kingdom as he calls it!

Ohio will be great. That's hilarious that a town has a twin festival. You'd better post pictures of that.
