Okay everyone so I had to Start a new blog because my other one wasn't working correctly and wouldn't let me post any pictures... so this is the new one:)

Here are some recent pictures:The first snow if the season:) It has been soo cold up here lately! Living in St. George really makes you forget what cold weather is like. Hopefully I'll get used to it quickly! This is from when we went up to Logan for General Conference back in October. Ali, Perris, Katie, and I all went to Gossner's Cheese Factory in Logan. Perris and Katie were especially thrilled with the cheese curds. Personally I think they are disgusting, and I don't know what all the fuss is about. But everyone seems to love 'em.This is of A and P on the ride up to Logan. Just beautimous. SO great, I love having two of my sisters up here to hang out with and spend time with. It just makes me so happy:)

Alrighty, and these are pictures of Ali and Katie dancing down the sidewalk at Utah State:) So fun!

Yes, we have a Christmas tree:) I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but we like to get a heads start on decorations on our apartment. It's a bit small, but we love having it! And the picture on the right is of Melinda's and my bedroom door. Just lovely, decorating is so fun. Well most of the time:)

Weekend Adventures

Well this week has been a long one so far. I was able to go home to St. George this weekend and spend some time with the fam, and it was so great:) We went to the Dixie high play, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and that was fun to see. Then were at the doctor's office most of the day on Saturday and found out that I had walking pneumonia. But despite my illness we still had a good time together. Hopefully I didn't get any of them sick. And on Sunday we went to Stake Conference and had a dang good dinner afterwards:) So delicious. Then I got to give the new scooter a try, and it is really fun to drive:) But needless to say it was a long drive home, filled with endless coughing fits.

So today was my first day back at classes because Monday and Tuesday I was too sick to go. So now I'm pretty loaded with homework. Oh well, I'll just have to catch up this weekend after I'm done taking my two tests. Sometimes it feels like it never ends, but I guess that's how it always is in college. Always busy:) Hopefully it'll all go well and I can get everything done quickly. I am feeling much better today though, and hopefully I'll be able to go over to Ali's tomorrow for a little bit as she will have the day off:)

Other than being sick, life is good. We have a cleaning check on Saturday, which I am horrified to say that I am actually looking forward to. Seriously though, living with a bunch of girls is great, except when many of us fail at cleaning up after ourselves. The kitchen is usually dirty because someone is always cooking, in the process of making a sandwich, or doing something else. I can live with a semi-dirty kitchen, at least it is being put to good use. BUT when it comes to the bathroom...that is where I draw the line! I woke up yesterday to go shower, and I walked into the bathroom and nearly threw-up after I looked in the bathtub. Okay so first of all, our drains have issues. The maintenance crew has to come every week and unclog Both of our showers. For some reason they cannot be fixed permanently, but only temporarily. And on top of that, every person in my apartment has an abnormal amount of hair shed daily. Yes, quite pleasant eh? No actually, not at all. So I walk in to the bathroom and the whomever had showered before had left lovely globs of hair caked to the side of the tub along with 6 inches of black water that wouldn't drain. Let's just say I didn't shower that day:) Hopefully we can keep it clean for a while after the cleaning check on Saturday.

I also finished my sewing my skirt for my sewing class. And although it didn't end up fitting me, (not sure how that happened, but oh well) it turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself. And I got a good grade on it. My camera is dead at the moment otherwise I'd put up a picture of it, but I guess pictures will have to wait. Anyways, anyone looking for a free skirt? Just gimme a call:)

I heard this quote lately and I really like what it says. Just thought I'd share it:)

Attitudes directly affect the choices we make, how much we accomplish, and ultimately how successful we are. You can change your life by changing your attitude.

The Beginning

Well I finally took the plunge, I am officially a blogger:) Many things have happened in the past few months, including starting BYU and moving out. It's amazing how quickly things happen. I think sometimes I have trouble enjoying the moment and really experiencing things when they happen. All too often I get into the "get it done and over with" mode, which isn't always what is best. So that is one of my new goals: to enjoy life as it happens and make the most if it. After all "men are that they might have joy" as it says it 2 Nephi 2:25.

Anyways, here are some pics of my dorm/apartment and of Halloween:)

Okay these are my roommates. Bottom row(left to right): Caitlin from Kaysville Utah, Me, Kim from Washington State, middle: Melinda from Virginia, Kimberly from Kaysville Utah, and Ann is on top form Hawaii. All great girls and we get along so well:) I love them all!

And here come the Halloween pics...

we were all 80's workout chicks except Ariel (my friend from SG that came up to visit) she was a Flamingo:)

Okay so I guess that's all for now, hopefully I'll be able to keep this updated for everyone:)
