The End

am I at BYU so I will not be updating this blog any longer. However, I will probably keep it up for the next... I-don't-know-how-long time span.
If you would like to continue up on my life adventures, you can go to
BYU has been good to me, but now I am needed to move onto new adventures. For example, living at home with two younger brothers who fight non-stop and a little sister who doesn't know how to not cry. Ever.
It will be a good experience for me and I will try to keep my blog updated.
That is all.
The End.

That Awkward Moment

So last night we went to Temple Square and it was wonderful!
So much fun!
And we invited some lovely girls from our ward to come back and have a girls' night with us after
Except we only knew one of them,
We didn't really know her roommate, but we invited both of them anyway.
Well when they came over, one of the girls had to leave because she had a hot date.
And the roommate that none of us really knew stayed.
She was super awesome, so nice and we had lots of fun.
But the second that she left,
Me and Tori looked at each other and said, "What is her name?"
Hahah we had spent the night with her and none of us were aware of her name.
So sad.
Luckily we have a ward directory, also known as the "menu"
We found out her name and felt like horrible human beings.
Sad, I know.
But you can't just ask someone their name when they have been chillin at your apartment for a few hours.
That is that awkward moment when you know that you don't know some one's name,
but you are also aware of the fact that you can't just ask them their name.

Uni.... corns that is

Haha Get it. One corn, Uni-corn. bahah I am so funny. Why am I not a comedian?
But seriously now, I love me some unicorns.

This particular picture of a unicorn just made me laugh because it is so hilarious and pink and glittery, with flowing hair and all.

This particular one has a rainbow in the background!!
hahaah loved it!

This picture just makes me wish that I had a pet unicorn.

I would like to color this picture some day I think. It is awesome.

This picture was on pinterest and dang. That kid is cool.
I definitely wish that I had a Unicorn Bike.
It would be almost as cool as a real live Unicorn.

I saw these stuffed Unicorns at Smiths on my birthday and I thought they were awesome.
I was walking around the whole store holding them,
I even made them gallop a few times.
I was with my roommate.
I think that she was embarrassed to be seen with me.
It was great.
Also I hope that you notice the background.
Ice cream section. YUM. Best section in the whole store.
In any store really.

Warmth of the Head

My lovely sister-in-law Ashley (pronounced Ash-a-leee) made me this wonderful ear warmer thingy before I left to Utah in the summer...

Unfortunately, it has been a little too warm to wear it until a few weeks ago
and guess what.
because: A. it keeps my head, face and ears warm; B) it is SUPA cute; and C) it hides greasy hair!!!
Love that!! ever so much!!
Thank you Ash-a-leeee!!!!

20 hours of driving, 2 days of being home, 3 farewell talks

Please notice Miya's wand of honey.

The turkey on CCJ's head even sings

Lovely friends that I hadn't seen for quite some time

All three missionary boys... and a million girls.

I am really excited that CCJ is going on his mission!

We have been asked if we are related.... apparently we look a lot a like.

CCJ, Rachel (me), Markie... with Sarah behind us.

In case you were wondering...

I am going home back to Mesa after this semester.
Which is a little bit sad because
I have realized that I love living with roommates!
So much fun!!
And I do like BYU.
But, I feel like I should go home after this semester so I will.
Plus I was talking to Al the other day and she said that her older sister stayed at BYU for a semester and then felt like she should go back home.
And that made me feel better.
I do get a little bit of crap from people when I tell them that I am leaving after this semester.
No, I don't hate BYU.
There aren't any problems between me and my roommates.
Honestly, it is fine here.
I just feel like I should go home and so that is what I am going to do.
And for some reason these people think that I am going to ignore these feelings and listen to them instead.
No offense or anything,
but I would rather listen to the Lord than these weirdos.
That is just not how I role.

On Friday night, my ward had a pumpkin carving activity/contest
This is the pumpkin that I carved.

I take a lot of effort when it comes to getting ready for ward activities.
You gotta impress all those boys.
I mean, just look at that face and hair and outfit.
Top Notch, I say.
I wonder why I haven't gotten asked on very many dates...
Mystery of the ages!

Also, I would love to see my nieceeees and nepheeees Halloween costumes,
So Ashley and Jessica, you should put up some pictures.
I am so sad that I missed out on that.

Tender. Yes, I know.

I was just on Facebook and I saw something that made me so happy.
Which is probably super lame because I was not even there to witness it, but honestly it made my day!

So this past week has been Homecoming Week for the school of my origin. Mesa High school.
Love that place. I have so many fond memories there.
My Grandma, my Grandpa, and my Great Grandma went there.
I think that is even where my Grandparents met.
So me and Mesa High, We go way back.

Any way. I was on facebook and I was looking at pictures of Homecoming Week for Mesa High
Because Homecoming Week is the BEST!
No joke. Especially in Student Council.
You stay out till super late working on all sorts of things,
Wake up early to prepare for something else,
There is just not a spare moment of time

Sorry for all of these tangents that I continue going on,
But anyway:
Facebook. Me. Pictures.
I was curious to see who the Homecoming Royalty were because I noticed that my good friend Holly Dixon was nominated, which wasn't really a surprise.
But then I saw this picture and I got sooooo very happy

The Royalty Picture.
The queen in this picture happens to not be Holly.
(even though I would have been so very happy if Holly had won, because that girl is sublime)
This is Annie. She is a Special Ed student and is possibly one of the friendliest girls I know.
It is definitely a heartwarming moment to see that the students of Mesa High did not vote for the most beautiful, talented, or involved student.
But someone who is special in their own way.
Seriously. When I saw that she won,
It was the Happiest part of my day.

Also Joseph Speakman was King.
Which is great.
I mean he is a Speakman
And is such a friendly and happy guy.
He is probably my favorite scripture budy that I have had of all time.
Ah, this just makes me so dang HAPPY!

Dancing With Bears

When Miya came and visited Jaron... uh.... I mean General Conference... I mean me,
We went to the Bean museum and there were some bears that looked like they were dancing.
Naturally, we danced with the cute little bears.

Unfortunately, I don't have one of Miya dancing with her bear... Oh bummer.

Also dik diks are my favorite animals, as of right now.

Isn't it so cute! Plus its name is dik dik which is hilarious in my opinion and makes it that much better.

This particular dik dik looks like Severus Snape.
Therefore its name is Sev Dik Dik.

I told my roommates that for my birthday I want a pet dik dik.
Soooo cute!

Snow? In October?

Two days ago I went to school wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt. The weather was sublime! Perfect weather, no joke. The sun was shining, it wasn't too hot and it wasn't too cold. Perfect.

And then, I woke up to this:

Yep. Snow on the Mountains surrounding the area.
And foggy-ness everywhere.
I did love that I got to wear me some scarves and jackets though.
However, it snowed in October.

Word Throw Up, Yes I have it.

Last night I dropping The P. R. man off at his dorm. As he was leaving my car, I felt words emerging from my throat without my consent. They just popped out like throw up. The words were "You should take me on a date. K bye." And those were my parting words.

The Y

 I think that my career of being at BYU is over after this semester. I have no great love for this school and I would be perfectly fine with leaving it and going on another adventure. Except the adventure that I think that I am going to do next is to move back home and to go to MCC and then go to their Dental Hygienist school. I actually really like this idea/plan, except that my blog will have to be changed in name or I will just have to discontinue it and  I will be going from BYU to MCC. Lame. Also, I would be living at home again - but actually I don't think that would be that bad. I know that I can live away from the family and I know that I can live with roommates and such so it might be a little bit difficult to move back home after being used to not living at home (if I do this plan, of course). This is the plan for now at least. I will let you know if it is going to change... Would I make a good Dental Hygienist?

I just wish that I was not a poor college student with no money so that I could buy all of these wonderful clothes!!!
Also I am mostly just excited for Fall so that I can wear cardigans and jackets and scarves and all manner of warm and compfy and cute clothes.

I love owls!

Usually I don't really have any desire for TOMS, but I like these!

I think that I want to wear skirts and dresses more often.

Sorry for this terribly long post about all these clothes that I just wish that I could wear...
One day when I get rich, I will be able to own all of these things and it will be awesome!
