A Well Needed Break

So this weekend was a holiday weekend which means that I don't have school today (Monday). I was debating whether or not to go home. After this past week, I definitely decided to go home. Plus, I had a date. :)

Friday was a crazy busy day. I took my good friend Tegan home with me because she lives in Tooele and wanted to spend the weekend with her family. I had one class on friday and then I was out of here! I was on the road by 3pm. The drive was long because of all the construction going on I-15. Tegan and I talked and talked which helped a lot and made time go by faster.

I had my date at 7. I went out with Zach before he went on his mission but he doesn't remember that we went on a date before the mish. Weird huh? We went to Five Guys for dinner which was crazy! I cannot believe how many fries you get with your meal! I was so overwhelmed that there was still a big layer of fries when I was full! We then went bowling and yup, Zach got a Turkey (3 strikes in a row for all you non bowlers) and so he won out of 3 games of playing. It was a lot of fun though because at first I sucked then I gradually got better at it. It was a really fun date! I had a great time! :) Thanks Zach!

Saturday was my day to relax! I slept in. How glorious it was. I stayed in my PJ's most of the day playing the Wii with the parents. It was good fun. I really liked just talking to my parents. There was a lot on my mind when I came home for the weekend but talking to them helped me a lot with emotions and my thoughts (P.S. it's not bad thoughts, just recent thoughts)

Sunday was awesome just like any other Sunday. :) Church was fun! Especially being with seven 4-year-olds. Yup. That was interesting. Kids picking their nose, eating it, and looking around to make sure no one noticed. Raising your hand saying "MMEEEE!!!" every time someone asked a question. Wanting all the kids to sit on your lap. Oh the joys of teaching primary! Mom made her famous sweet and sour meatballs which was delish! Ethan came out which was a bonus since he NEVER comes out to the house on Sundays ;) jk. I don't think he ever misses a Sunday.

Today went by way too fast! It needed to slow down. I wanted to relax some more but I can't turn back time or make it slow down. haha Mom and I relaxed all day playing Dr. Mario and watching FRIENDS. Gotta love friends. I headed back down to Snow today. I wasn't quite sure how things were going to be when I got here but so far, things are going better than they were on Thursday, that's for sure. haha Well that's my update on things that happened this weekend.

Abide With Me Tis Eventide

So yesterday was not a very good day for me. Lots of things were going through my mind. Many emotions as well. I had to get away from my apartment for a while. I ended up at the Manti Temple yet again. I stayed there for 2 hours. My heart was so full of different things that I needed to let all my emotions out. While I was sitting in my car looking at the temple, this song started playing in my head. I love the words so I'll put them down below. It has given me great comfort that the Lord loves us all. If we turn to him, even in our darkest times, he will help us. He will stay with us when we feel lonely. He will comfort us. I love my Savior very much.

Abide with me; 'tis eventide.
The day is past and gone;
The shadows of the evening fall;
The night is coming on.
Within my heart a welcome guest,
Within my home abide.

O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.

Abide with me; 'tis eventide.
Thy walk today with me
Has made my heart within me burst;
As I communed with thee.
Thy earnest words have filled my soul;
And kept me near thy side.

Abide with me; 'tis eventide,
And lone will be the night
If I cannot commune with thee
Nor find in thee my light.
The darkness of the world, I fear,
Would in my home abide.

O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.

Things I would like to achive this year

Here are some of the things that I really want to accomplish this year. Some things are pretty simple but some things will be very hard in my book.

  • Get a 3.5 or higher on my last semester here at Snow
  • Graduate from Snow
  • Get a good job that I will enjoy and that pays good
  • Remodel my room (new carpet, walls, and possibly furniture)
  • Pay off my student loans
  • Read the Book of Mormon
  • Finish my best friends baby quilt
  • Crochet a slouchy beanie (if you don't know what I'm talking about, Google it)
  • Be more organized with my time
  • Get a better car than the one I have now
  • Spend more time with my Grandma and Grandpa
  • Study my scriptures 2+ times a week (I'm a slacker)
  • Lose 20 pounds (haha don't know if that'll happen)
  • Help my mom more
  • Practice the piano more
  • Be more organized with my money
  • Go to the temple more often
I hope that you all have your lists of what you want to accomplish this year and share them with others! I feel that if I share these with you, that you can encourage me to keep on going when I'm feeling down or discouraged. I really hope that I can finish all these things in 12 months.

So I'm usually not excited for McDonald's since I work there whenever I'm home from school. But last night was very exciting. My roommates and some of the girls from across the hall came to McDonald's where we acted like 7 year olds. Did we get shakes? Yes we did! Did we play in the PlayPlace? Indeed. Bianca brought her guitar. Kaitlyn brought her camera. It was one fun night! P.S. -The first picture is of Kaitlyn imitating everything that Lala did, drink and all. :) It went on for a good 10 minutes.

Dear Hot Chocolate

Thank you for warming me up today. 10 degrees outside is one way to enjoy some of this amazing stuff. Especially when there is Vanilla in it.

New Year. New Semester.

Happy Late New Year! I'm like 3 days late but oh well! I had an awesome new years. I went to Josh's family party with him and we ate food and played games! It was so fun. We also banged pans when it was midnight outside. Good times.

I'm back down at Snow and I'm so glad that I still have the same roommates. I remember last year I got a new roommate named Zenobia. :) I had so much fun with her last year. I do miss her.

So this semester's classes are more towards my major. I'm taking Human Biology, First Aid, Early Childhood Development, and Children's Literature. I'm looking forward to the fun things I'll be experiencing this semester. It's my last semester here at Snow before I graduate. Wow! Time is flying by!

Well all you Snow College students out there, good luck with classes this semester and remember to have some fun time!

My Christmas Break

A lot of things happened during my Christmas Break. I came home December 17th to my wonderful family with SNOW! Down in E-town we didn't have that much snow so it was a change when I got home.

I worked a lot while I was home. I got a good 30ish hours into McDonald's so that money will help me with this next semester. It was fun to see my awesome co workers again. We had some good stories this time about customers that came in or went through the drive thru.

I went Christmas shopping and I also got bangs. :) I really like my bangs. They are so cute but it's definitely something to get used to. I got Josh a DVD for Christmas and my family gave him the Mistborn book. He said that some of his friends really liked it so I'm glad that he'll get to read that. Josh's presents to me was he took me to my favorite restaurant which is Rodizio Grill. AHHH! It was so good :) I honestly would've been happy with that but he gave me more. He bought me a giant Hershey's Kiss and a keychain with my name on it. :)

Christmas Eve was amazing as usual. We had rice pudding, watched Mr. Bean's Christmas, watched A Nativity Story (which is one of my favorite christmas movies) and we opened one gift which were pajamas this year. It was a little strange because Danny and Vanessa didn't come to the house til Christmas afternoon so it was weird not having her with us on Christmas Morning.

Christmas morning was beautiful. We woke up at around 8am which was fantastic because I love my sleep. We opened stocking where I got a cami, a metal cup (don't ask) money from my favorite Uncle ;), Eclipse the movie, and the original items such as pringles, a chocolate orange, my favorite cereal which is reese's puffs, and a few other things. We had our traditional breakfast which consists of sausage and eggs together, blueberry and chocolate chip muffins and orange juice. We got to our presents and started opening them one at a time. I got new boots, jeans, a coat and new converse shoes! Woohoo! We also had some family gifts so we all opened these together. We got a Wii! I totally saw it coming. We also got some games and Rock Band 3 and the Beatles Rock Band. We got all the stuff for rock band which included a drum set, a bass guitar, a keyboard and a very complex guitar that we're going to sell since we can't play it that well. We had our big Christmas Dinner which was delicious! We did another tradition of Christmas Crackers which were a lot of fun! We spent most of the day just playing with the Wii and all the games we got with it!

For New Years I went with Josh to his family party. I honestly was a little nervous for it because I'd be meeting more of his family but I knew most of his family which was good. We had lots of food, and we played lots of games. We played Settlers of Catan for almost 3 hours! It was such a long game. We also played Buzz Word, Snorta and Liar (or BS). At midnight we went outside and banged pots with metal utensils. It was a lot of fun! Josh kissed me at midnight....oh la la! :) I had a good Christmas break and I wish it was longer than 2 weeks! Back to school for me on Monday. Classes start Tuesday. Will post soon!
