I'm an Official College Kid!!!

If you want to see more pics just let me know!!!!

We have to share two bathrooms (not the best part)

This is our kitchen (we have two fridges!)

We also have two couches and a TV in the front room!!

And this is my half of the bedroom. Im a clean freak so the bathroom I use and my bedroom are usually spotless (don't let the unmade bed fool you) You can see all my pics on the wall and my sociology homework that i love doing!!!( weird Child that I am, I love doing my homework, thats a new development however cuz i've always hated homework til now)

So i have been super busy the last couple weeks...and well one of the many things i have been up to is moving to Ephraim, Utah where I am going to Snow College to start my schooling to be a large animal veterinarian or an equine specialist! Well I moved into my apartment on the 14th of August and met all my roomates: Cheerston, Heather, Laura, Ali, Latoya, and Nina. I share a room with heather and get along the best with her and Ali. I love my classes well all except my english 1010 class, but I have Sociology, Interpersonal Communications, Ag. Careers, English, and First Aid. I have institute first thing (7:30 AM) on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

And Holy Cats Though!!! Books are so expensive I spent $200 on four books and i still have 1 left to get but I have to wait until i get another $50 stinkin bucks to buy it! Oh and the first time I went grocery shopping i about had a heart attack!!! I need a job....desperatly partly cuz i need something to do with my down time and i am very very POOR (i joke about being your typical college student, I live for free food and i walk EVERYWHERE!!! ) But did i mention how much I completely love it!!! just in case I haven't I LOVE BEING IN COLLEGE!!!!

Ward Campout!

So i went on a camp out last night with Patsy, my mom, brothers, and bestest friend Ms. Sadiee Bown haha. On the way up and back sadiee and i kept everyone entertained with our singing skills and on the way home the boys attempted to join in to the surprise and hysteric laughter of everyone in the car! My brothers, Sadiee, and i went scaling the mountain and had to send all the little kids back that tried to follow us. I tried to lead us back down the mountain by running down it ( i didn't even fall on my face!!!) and i ended up leading us to this swamp that we had to go trecking around...so my guide skills arent the greatest...(they didnt have to follow me!!) anyway it was way fun and we all loved every second!!! Sure the pucs are ridiculous but we had fun lol

Blonde hair and blue eyes= all natural me!!!

I went back to my naturally blonde hair color... just figured i'd let everyone know!!! I like it tons and now i'm a blonde haired blue eyed beauty....um yeah skip the beauty part but i do have blonde hair now to go with my blue eyes!

Relief!!!....and Stress!!!!

Well I haven't posted anything on here in a long time.... not that my life is that exciting so really you're not missing out on alot. However this last week has been absolutely crazy like none other!!!

First of all we had the rodeo last Friday and Saturday.... I was stressed out about the drill and hoped like heck that we could pull it off cuz we had issues right until the day of! That went over well but i had problems with two people on the drill team. We had to call a special meeting and do all this crap and i was so mad all it was all i could do to keep my mouth shut and sit there... and boy was i shaking!!! I dont get mad all that easy so for me to be that mad....yeah it was a BAAAAD day! So i'm sooooo glad the rodeo is over and i dont have to worry about it anymore.

Last night the tire on my car popped...there was a nail in it and now i have to find a way to scrape some money together to probably buy a new tire ( and if anything else is broken i'll have to pay for that too) ... not to mention buying lamb feed every week at $17 a bag and making payments on the car, payments for an apartment, and payments on the $350 of repairs I had to do to the car because it had alignment problems. I don't know how in the world i'm going to work this out but i just have to...its all a part of life...and I dont like it but i'll deal with it.

Heck to make a bright point about all that dull payments and money issues stuff.... at least its helping me get ready for the real world, i mean welcome to the rest of my life right? might as well get started now haha!

HMMM summer boredom

OK so its only the second week of summer and i'm pretty much ready for it to be over. I am the Drill Team Captain for the riding club and so far it has been a very stressful experience. I have been working on a new horse for one which is fun and a little frustrating at the same time as he doesn't know practically anything compared to my old mare. Then there are issues with a girl on the team and I'm about ready to kick her off!!
Lets see.... state contests start on monday which should be pretty fun although i kinda dont want to go cuz melissa cant go now and everyone is going to be off doing their own thing, but i cant let the horse judging team down (even though they'd probably do ok without me) so i'll still go.
What else? Oh theres this kid austin works with, his name is Daniel and he is an awesome person lol. I've only talked to him a few times and already he thinks I'm pretty and told Austin he thought my eyes were amazingly gorgeous....Wow haha i feel so special.... i know I'm completely a dork, but it's been a while since a guy has liked me so i feel special leave me alone ;) anywho I had nothing else to do so i posted this nice little update so ya'll can see how things are goin!!!!

Senior Lockup


I yelled her name and took the pic at the same time mwhaha

Courty walkin through the gym

OK so after graduation was senior lock up. This is where they take all the kids that graduated and throw this big shindig to keep everyone out from doing the not so good partying thing. Well i totally think it was worth it cuz i got lots and lots of free stuff!!! I got free gas and free gift cards to the grocery store and free dinner for two to El Mex' and denny's. I'd say i did pretty dang good lol!

OK so its been like two weeks since graduation and i'm finally posting this. Sorry we had no internet for the last two weeks and it has most definetely screwed up my schedule ( like signing up for college classes.) But now our internet is back up and running so i can get everything back on schedule. But back to graduation.... It was ok i guess. I didn't cry which was extremely surprising. Usually you know people say you feel kind of sad to be moving on but i'm really just excited to start on this new adventure!

Oh... what a spaz...yep thats me!

Me and my bestest friend

Me and Kyle Hunt, he's the new Secretary

Goble giving me my award, melissa and hoss are laughing at me....imagine that one

Melis and i figuring out the mike, by the way that mike hated Tait haha :)

Thats my best friend! With her eyes open!!!

Look it's me! and the back of Pam's head (Pam is hoss's mom, and like my second LOL)

Ok so the banquet was on wednesday (i know im a little behind aunt jen, uncle moe, and girls!) I knew the whole week i was going to cry like a baby and guess what?! I didn't disappoint! I cried like a leaking faucet! I was fine until Goble gave me this award that basically means I was the best senior in the FFA program this year. That's when it all started, then when I went to induct little Kyle Hunt as the new 2009-2010 Secretary I had to try as hard as I could to speak legibly (spelling). Then afterward every time someone would hug me i cried! I think they were doing it on purpose! Oh and I had lots of people tell me I looked really pretty that night...weird people aren't usually pretty when they cry!? There was also this little old lady who came and gave me a hug and told me all about when we first moved here and i'd go over and talk to her all the time and she would pick me and my brothers up to take us to the bus stop. I couldn't even remember that! Yeah and I'm sure Pam got some pretty good pictures of me crying because that was one of her main missions for the night! Congrats to the new team! You guys will do amazing, and Mr. President Hoss better keep me informed about what goes on this year cuz I want to know too!

inside my head

I'm feelin'.... I'm not sure how I feel actually, I don't know how to describe it.... I'm having problems with lots of things right now and the stress and craziness of my life right now is leaving me exhausted and confused about everything. And... my days as FFA secretary are officially numbered... I have just two days left... I know for a fact I am going to bawl like a baby on banquet night...and I'm so anxious about graduating! I want to find a full time job this summer, but I haven't been able to find one... I'll probably end up working more hours at the store and more hours for the animal shelter. I'm so excited to start school at Snow in the fall. I'm kind of a little sad about leaving behind of my friends. I just don't know what to say I'm at a loss...I want to scream, I want to cry, I want to jump around and show everyone I'm ok, but I can't, I just can't. The face I put out to the world makes everyone think it's ok, but inside there is so much going on I'm not sure how to cope. Ok now that I've shown my depressing sad side... hope everyone is having a good day! I'll be posting pictures of the banquet in a few days.

Well I didn't make state officer for FFA :( It's a little sad, but at the same time I had so much fun running and met alot of new people! I got to do one interview Thursday then four on Friday. I packed four pairs of clothes... never most of them! I spent almost the whole time in official dress (FFA Jacket, skirt, high heels, nylons, scarf, white shirt) The only times i ever changed I can count on one hand! I changed into a swimming suit the first night and my pajamas, t-shirt and jeans for the dance and pajamas the second night, and that was it! But like I said I had tons of fun. The Nom. Com. people said they absolutely loved me but just didn't think I could do a state office. That's ok though cuz now that I think about it...I have a ton of stuff going on and this way I can concentrate on what is really important. Like paying for college, getting signed up for classes, working on the drill for the rodeo, starting on my show lambs so they will be ready for the show, possibly finding a full time job for the summer. So yeah convention was super fun and i don't regret running for state office, I have grown soooooo much from the experience!

Easter fun

Bryndee's egg findin face
Brystyn's "I'm to excited to stand still long enough for a picture" pose.

Kaprooklyn lookin for easter eggs. She's old enough to hang with the big kids, then young enough to get free candy!

That's Trevor coming up with some shot for our HORSE game

Garrett failing miserably at basketball

On the way over Brystyn took our beatiful pictures

This is wide eyed Baby Brylee herself!

Today we went over to my cousin's family's house ( you still followin?) and we had an egg hunt for all the younger kids. We had hamburgers the size of basketballs and lots of candy ( not like we needed more of that stuff!) The older kids went out and played some basketball and I helped hide the eggs for the kids. Then it was "Let em' loose!!!" and all the kids went racing in all directions hunting for our cleverly disguised eggs.

Pizza and Arcade games!

Brookelyn and I makin faces

Brookelyn, Bryndee, and I makin more faces

Wow a normal one

Normal doesn't last long

This was while we were waiting to be seated ( Uncle Moe and baby Brylee, Garrett, Brystyn, Austin, Brookelyn, me and Bryndee)
Last Night we went to a place called Fat Cats where we ate pizza and the original plan was to go bowling but it was super expensive there! Seriously it would have cost close to a hundred bucks for all of us to go bowling, and I don't know about anyone else, but I don't have a hundred bucks to blow on one game of bowling! So instead we all played arcade games. I didn't play any I just held Brylee the whole time and I loved seeing her little eyes get wide at all the lights and sounds and people runnin around. It really was super fun and everyone got tons of tickets and got all kinds of fun little prizes.

Our Amazing Bank Adventure!

Garrett asleep in the lobby chair
everyone just 'hangin ten' in the lobby

The hamster pancake I made that started off the day.
OK so yesterday I made a hamster pancake...well it was supposed to be a mouse but it ended up a hamster after the mousy tail fell off and pretty much burnt to a crisp. Then when my grandpa and grandma got here, we went to the bank where we spent hours waiting for things to get wrapped up. Hence we cleaned out the bank of it's candy stash and their money cashing savings bonds. Plus we pretty much rearranged the lobby! All in all it was a very long day at the bank!
