A lonely Saturday

You know those people you often see in movies who choose not to follow direction.... well that is me. I find it much more adventurous to find my own way to do things -sometimes they don't always turn out like they should- this would be one of those times. This lonely Saturday I decided to turn up the tunes (Joe Purdy) and make a gingerbread house. I had high intentions for my gingerbread house. It was going to look better then the picture on the box. Well lets just say that did not work out. I ran into a few problems...
the icing was the worst
my walls kept caving in
I broke a wall in half
the candy was hard as a rock (but who really eats the candy off a gingerbread house anyways)
the icing would not harden-because it was the worst
I realized I ate most of the gum balls
my snowman looks how all snowmen do a week after it was made. All slouched over in a big mush.

In the end it was a good lonely Saturday. I have nothing to complain about.

I dream of owning a children's book store
I am good at wasting time
I find Laffy Taffy jokes very funny
I secretly wish I was left handed
I'm a crier. If I see tears mine start-a-flowin
I have a love/hate relationship with running
My secret obsession is scarfs
I am unhealthily addicted to Orange Juice
Someday I want to run through a field of flowers
I think lyrics need to rhyme
Fruit is my candy
My dream is to ride in a hot air balloon
I want a chocolate lab named Chaco
I love singing in the car
I am a night owl-you don't want to catch me when I just wake up
I so badly want to visit New Zealand
Yes I love jazz music
The most used words in my vocabulary are "never mind"-it drives my friends crazy
I am a sucker for a sweater vest

long lost friend

So its been a month, one long crazy month since my last post. And I must say I have dearly missed blogging. But now that I have the internet I cant think of anything to blog about. This summer has flown by but here are a few of events that have happend in the past little bit....

-My parents are home (The most exciting)
-Giving plasma..... oh dear:)
-Still working like crazy
-One by one my group of friends is getting small as missionaris leave.... a little bitter sweet (but a little more sweet then bitter I guess!)

Ya not a whole lot I am not just waiting for school to start

It's summer!!!
Summer has been around for a few months now.
visiting teachers are here.
Okay you know it's a sad day,
when you have lived in Orem your whole life and you can't find the post office.
Half an hour later....
no luck.
I spend a lot of time at work,
laughing, smiling, loving.
Finally finished writing in my journal,
Jerusalem, check
San Diego, check.
I love how the door matt outside my house says JOY,
ya Christmas was a while ago
just a little lazy.
Right now it's 89 degrees in my house
it's only 87 degrees outside.
I wonder if my fingernail polish really does change colors in the sun,
ok ya it does.
Now Dallan just warmed up some fish,
smelling up the house,
Just talked to Jenny for about an hour,
I want to go to Seattle now,
miss her like crazy!!
Kind of hungry
Oh sprinklers...
I want to jump though them!
Wow it's really hot in my house!
I just might.
(it's 10 degrees cooler down stairs)
wait, that's on tomorrow.
I promise I am not just bored and writing about my day.
La la la la...
Okay so maybe I am.
24 hours to go!
midnight snack tomorrow,

Cooking Time!

I love Mom's banana bread! So today as I looked at our brown bananas (that we never eat) and thought... Why not! So I measured, mixed, mashed and waited all while wearing Mom's flirty apron (hehe)! I must say I am very proud, they may not look as nice as Mom's but they taste delicious!

Mixing it

Pouring it


Just looking awesome!

Sporting the flirty apron :)

The finished product!

A home away from home!

Jerusalem was so much fun. There are no words to describe how much I loved it. It quickly became a home away from home to me. If I had the chance to go back tomorrow I would go. I miss waking up every morning and looking out from my parents back porch on to the city, the call to prayer that plays 5 times a day, walking to the old city and well everywhere, the sooo good freshly squeezed orange juice, I miss the Jerusalem Center-my parents cute little apartment, shopping with my mom at the dirty little 24 hour store, getting popsicle everyday after a long walk in the heat, exploring all of Jerusalem (there is still so much I did not get to see), I miss the simplicity of it all-the simple life, and I miss my family and just hanging with them. It was such an amazing experience for me and I will never forget it. Memories that will stay with me forever. Like I said there are no words to describe how much I loved it, but maybe a little slide show can help. Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

Jerusalem if I forget you! Maybe someday I will get the chance to go back!

The past little bit...

I seem to have the worst luck with electronics. My laptop dies this weekend taking everything with it. I lost all my pictures, all my music, and all my homework assignments I have been working on for weeks. I am taking all my finals early too so I have to turn things in early, so now I have to restart papers for english and history. Its been a rough week but nothing I can handle. I am just hoping that we will be able to get everything off my hard drive, so cross your fingers for me!

About 2 weeks ago some friends and I went to the color fest. I have been looking forward to this since I went to the llama fest last year, and now I am looking forward to llama fest this year. Color fest was awesome. Defiantly a high light of my year. We were standing in the middle of the field in a group of hundreds of people. When we started throwing the chalk you could not see anything. It was like this dark pink cloud of chalk engulfed everyone, way cool. I Defiantly will be returning to this event next year!

EASTER SUNDAY!!! What a great day. The morning of Easter Sunday I woke up excited to look for my Easter basket only to remember there was not going to be one, the Easter bunny seemed to be taking a break this year, but I got a greater treat anyways, General Conference. I spend the Sunday sessions at the Dennis' house, it was fun. I have so many good memories with Mauri. After that I went down to Jami and Jon's place where we had an Easter meal and hang out with Jon's family. I even got to find an Easter egg!

About time right...

Of all the years my sister has asked me about boys, and all the years my brothers told me to never have a boyfriend, and for all the years my Mom thought I never liked boys, and waited for that moment when I would start talking about them on the way to school, well all those years finally led up to this. I now finally have a boyfriend. Ya I know its about time right. haha.
