Hooray for vacations!

Today, we (shelby, kincheloe, and I) went to Natalie's wedding. Ok well we obviously didn't go to the wedding, but we met her when she got out of the temple and then went to the reception hall. I loved it when the photographer called us the bride's maids. Oh really? I didn't realize that I was a bride's maid but if the photographer says so then it must be true. Ok not really. The photographer was CRAZY (yes she had crazy eyes) and not very effective. Anyways, the trip to the temple was absolutely wonderful! I'm so happy for her; she married an absolutely amazing guy. The reception was a lot of fun and we had awesome food! I forgot how much I love receptions. Afterwards, we came home and packed. In the evening, we went to a bonfire with a large group of the ward. This was my first bonfire at BYU. I didn't realize that roasted starbursts were like a little piece of heaven. Currently, I stink of smoke, but it was a lot of fun. Tomorrow, Kincheloe is leaving me for good. The rest of the week will be filled with packing to move into the new house. I'm looking forward to it!

Finals are over!

So I officially finished finals yesterday (yes I took all 5 finals in two days) but the real fun didn't start until today. Today was quite productive. I went to the social security administration office here in provo to try and prove that I was indeed born on the 14th of Nov. They actually believed me this time and they apparently have to send me a completely new card which is stupid. Afterwards, I tracked down the girl that I will be replacing in the Kandell house and tried to chase her out of the house so I could move in. All attempts were useless. Next time I'll use my mean voice. I returned home to pack up most of my room. Some kids from the ward wanted me to play volleyball with them so being eager to please them I joined in on the game. Needless to say, I couldn't help myself and got sand in all sorts of unpleasant places. Afterwards, I helped shelby move some of her junk and I tell ya what she has a lot of junk! Later in the evening, we got invited to play ultimate with other kids in the ward. It was AWESOME. I was on a roll tonight. I even made a beautiful diving touchdown catch. It was amazing!!! But I'm paying for that now; my whole right leg has contusions and is scratched up. It hurts to put any weight on it, but it was totally worth it and the grass strains on my clothing bring me great joy. Concluding our game, Shelby, me, and a bunch of boys went to yozone. I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed the frozen yogurt and mocking of rich kids. What a wonderful life. Why can't I always live like this- playing sports all day, kicking back and relaxing, and socializing. School is definitely over rated.

My life is complete

I have discovered the best little bakery/cafe in provo- kneaders. As I have come to find out everyone knows about this place except for me. This semester everyone in the ward always went on about kneaders. Apparently, my ward are their best customers. I got a text this morning at some ridiculous hour (around 9 ok that's not bad but I was sleeping) inviting me to kneaders. I told the guy that I couldn't go because I don't have money. He replied that it was a date and that he obviously would be paying. OHHHHH oops. So it was me and 5 other guys. Kind of wierd but not really because I was soaking it up. So long story short, it was the best breakfast EVER- delicious and free!

What's wrong with me?

The last two mornings I have woken up at 5:30 to play basketball with guys in the ward. I don't know why because I do not particularly like to do active things before the sun comes up and I love my sleep way too much. Last night, I didn't get home until 2 am and I didn't go to bed until 2:30, yet I still woke up after 3 hours of sleep to go play. Maybe I'm just starved of physical activity. Friends, I blame you! If you played with me, I wouldn't be going through this terrible phase.

Best Weekend EVER!

I had a wonderful weekend. It was filled with family, tennis, good food, easter festivities, and motorcycle rides.

On my motorcyle ride:

This is one of the roads that I rode down.

Everyone needs a tractor parked out front of their house.

I could just imagine how beautiful it would be in the summer when it's all green and filled with crops growing.

My sweet ride!

I look WAY better than Becky in a helmet.

Hiking the "Y":


Meeting of the crazy roommates:

Cooking the Italian Dinner Crepes

The food here was soooooooo delicious. Good call Will.

Poor boy was attempting to use the chop sticks.

This is the catholic cathedral where we attended mass while waiting for Lana.

Ahh DI and Conference

It's official! I have a place to live for spring and summer!!! I've been pestering aspen ridge forever and they finally confirmed that there are for sure 2 openings, so I jumped on it and signed the contract right then and there. Also, yesterday I went to DI and found some real treasures. Ok not really but I'm pretty happy with my finds:

I got a sweet cookbook for only $1. I told my mom about it and after much laughter she said she was proud of me. They also had discarded hymn books, so I got one from some orem stake center. Now, I can practice hymns again. The shorts were a steal! I had never actually bought used basketball shorts before. Together they were half the price of a new pair of shorts.

We camped out in our living room it was great. On the floor we have our mattresses laid out. It's kind of hard to see but the sign on the door says "no boys allowed- you know who you are" that sign was directed towards one boy in our ward who is always over and he's super annoying. He never knocks!!! He just opens the door and waltzes on in. The sign worked for friday night he saw it and went away but saturday morning he ignored it and walked on it and then ate our breakfast! This boy is trying my patience.

For Lana

Ok so I officially got tired of having long scraggy hair that has a mind of its own. To fix this problem I marched down the street to great clips and CHOPPED it all off (well a lot of it anyways). I feel much more springy now even though the weather still insists on snowy all the bloody time! Lana, do you recognize that hideous shirt?

Currently, I am listening to the beatles which brings me much joy because it reminds me of last semester. Also, I am quite depressed because I have to cut my fingernails for my game tonight. They are quite long and beautiful, but I also don't want to slice someone's jugular during my game. Lana, I don't think I can wait much longer. You need to hurry up and get here. Also, I think I will cut my hair before you get here and you should too. My hair needs help very badly! Becky, are you going to come to conference with Lauren and I this weekend? Also, I wish you had a frickin phone!!! Lauren, I love you.
