although we don't watch hannah schmontana (kakie, if you're out there, that was for you)





we got our passport photos done today. it was an event. milo almost got me arrested at rite aid. true story.

just fyi, there is a 99.9% chance we are moving to a foreign country. thank you to the two u.s. schools that rejected us. i didn't want to live in west virginia anyway. there is a 30% chance we could be moving to dublin. (ok, i kind of pulled that figure out of nowhere. jamie is on the waiting list there. i don't think i need to tell you that i really want to live there.) other options? australia. a caribbean nation. prague. i'm not joking. we're pretty excited. anywho, i thought i'd climb out of my usual blog post reticence and let you know the sitch/dealio.

now off to watch Lost. on an i-love-my-huz-sidenote: jamie just said to me,"abby, i'm 28 years old and i love 'wizards of waverly place.'" isn't that funny? it's true, though. we do love the disney channel.

u.s. schools are highly over-rated. i'm jealous. can i come visit?

Emily said...

Don't move. I'm in denial.

The photos are great! I'm not so excited for me . . on your possible move, but very excited for you, because I would have loved to live in one of those places.

Umm, that is why Nate and Jamie are boyfriends, because Nate loves that show along with "The Sweet Life of Zach and Cody" or whatever that show is.

And you guys should do whatever you need to do to move to NYC, haha.

Fashionably Kate said...

Prague. Go there. One of my favorite cities. period.

Nancy said...

those are probably half of the best passport photos I've ever seen, it helps that you are all so good looking. And that would be exciting to go abroad, and I wish my kids were into the Disney Channel, it's almost exclusively Nickelodeon here and I'm a little iCarlyed out.

Sarah said...

I did not know Prague was in the mix. It's gorgeous there! Love it! And Nancy, I don't think you should wish for your kids to love the disney channel. Have you not heard Emily's take on all thing disney? regarding the channel, I'm with her.

Sophia said...

HA HA I would be lying if I said I didn't watch that show. I don't even have a good excuse, I don't have kids yet:)

Anonymous said...

i want to hear emily's take on all things disney!!

(we are also fond of WOWP- one of the few shows we enjoy from that channel.)

Bethany said...

I really love those pictures. You should put your half w/Pearl's and Jaime's with Milo's... see how much they look like you:) How exciting for you to move out of the country. I don't know if I could do it, but I'm not so adventurous as you:) Good luck!

MissKris said...

I like Wizards of Waverly Place too and I don't even have kids yet. Their last name is Russo. Like mine :)

KILEY said...

I can't believe how much Pearl looks like you. I am jealous of your kids. I tell Tyler every Sunday. I am also jealous of your adventures. Geez.

Cole Stoneman said...

I always knew our family's were connected. The disney channel is in fact our favorite tv and radio program...how many people can say that?? not many

Eliza said...

you're moving??? that's so exciting! jon and i can come visit you abroad and we'll have tea! (decaf of course)

remi said...

what a delight to have a new friend! I must say, it was meant to be.....I may have one-upped you on the disney channel obsession (did you say obsession, or it that just what it is for me?)

....I listen to radio disney.

i don't think you understand how pretty you are. like do you even get it?

i'm sad you guys are moving. who's family will i stare at at church?

Here Dwells Happiness said...

Yahoo for moving out of the country. Bran and I would love to do something like that as well. Ah, you'll be living our dream.......I'm crossing my fingers that everything will work out just perfectly for your darling little family.

Tippetts said...

Hey, this is weird and you don't know me, but Jamie knows my husband -Mitch Tippetts- we just finished med school that is based in Grand Cayman. He said Jamie should give him call if he wants to talk to him. (he is a carribean school guru...)
p.s. It goes fast, I promise :) Oh, and I took piano lessons from your Mom a million years ago.

wendy said...

You guys take the most gorgeous photos. No one should be allowed to look as good as you 4 in their passport pics. So not fair.

We'll come visit you wherever you end up!

We used to love WOWP too, back when we watched TV.

Kent Kate & Afton said...

That will be such a great experience. I have a some friends who went out of the country for medical school and they had a great time. I wish the best for you guys and I can't wait to hear where you end up.

Trent and Brooke Warner said...

That will be such a great experience if you get to go. It's always cool to have an excuse to see more of the world. Good luck Jamie.

Natalie said...

you belong in a foreign place. because you're sassy like that. you will spread sunshine where ever you go and then bring it back to the states with you when you come back. i'm excited for you. on a more important note; 24 comments? abby. you're famous and soon to be foreign. totally jealous.

p.s. i would have accepted Jaime to my med school if i had one. he's well rounded and will be just the kind of dr. the world needs more of.

sarah marie. said...

thanks for your comment. where do you live? we could definitely be in the same ward but yeah we are still going to our old one in provo. and my favorite thing at the pizzeria is the braised beef panini too. well that and a few other things.

and ps..you are darling. and your family too. i kind of hope you don't move across seas so we can become friends. but if you do move i hope it's to prague. most amazing place i've ever been.

kake said...

i didn't read all the other comments so i'm prolly repeating but. you guys are really great, another country sounds like an awesome adventure, and thanks for the title shout-out!

Kera said...

so cute. where are you going? I'm going to have to read more to find out. :) I have two boys two and we are probably moving to Dubai and so we are going to be doing this too!

Joanna Goddard said...

what CUTE photos!

Barker's said...

I know that you posted this a l..o...n...g time ago, and you don't know me... hope you dont mind. I am a friend of Natalie Kidd/ Stoneman, and I found your blog through her's. Good luck with Med school. As for where you are moving a foreign land sounds fun... I wanted to move somewhere foreign and ended up in WEST VIRGINIA... it is a foreign land here! I am from phoenix and miss it terribly. I just wanted to say that WV isn't that bad, although I don't love it to the very depths of my soul, I am surviving and it would be nice to have such a fun new friend here! Nice to meet you Abby

love Kristen
