And lately...

^^Missionary letters. Isn't Matt the cutest? He will be home this coming summer and we are very excited about that over here. Then we can finally do all that cousin bonding that's been lacking to for two whole years!^^

^^The Halloween floral arrangement made for the festivities of the season. (And I have grown to hate this class oh so much.)^^

^^I saw this beauty walking to class one day. These people clearly know what's up.^^

^^Halloween treats from my Grandparents/Aunt. My fam is the bees knees.^^

^^We got to go into the food tent at the football game and we don't regret one calorie that was consumed in the process.^^

^^One word. Drives. I go on at least one, maybe even two drives a day to look at the leaves and houses. I don't know how this became one of my favorite pastimes, but it has and I love it.^^

^^Gosh, I love Utah. And these cloudless blue skies have been killlling me lately!^^

^^Behold, the ribbon banner is up and running.^^

^^Maybe it's the lack of sleep that made this so funny to me, or the fact that 95% of mine, Whit's, and Stacey's jokes were about food, and I just really miss them. Like really.^^

^^Some times cookie butter is what get me through the day. Cause I It's ruff on the soul sometimes.^^
And tomorrow is Halloween and we are gonna bust a moooove at the center street dance! Ole!

Some pumpkins and some d-town lovin

 This past week I took my anatomy midterm. I did pretty well on it, but studying for that thing melted my brain. Ask me ANY bone or ANY muscle and I will know it. So in order to break up that studying I crafted, cause what else? And I made a chevron glitter pumpkin, and that is what got me though the week. It's the little things.
Oh, and then I had the grandest weekend. On Friday my brain was still fried so we just went on a Target run and then watched 500 days of summer. (classic)
Then on Saturday we went to the Draper temple (one of my favorites) and we got have lunch with Tami, and that was the best cause she is just the most fantastic.
Then we went and saw the Saratov approach. Holy cow. One word-TEARS.
That movie was so powerful and so inspirational. I love the church. Let's leave it at that.
And now we have the start of a new week filled with three spanking new midterms for me to take. I think I need some chocolate milk and lots of missionary letters to get through this one.
Thank goodness for Sundays. Re-group days.
Now lets have the best week.

This past weekend

 I went to the pizza truck. It was ok. And by ok I mean that it was amazing. I miss Friday pizza nights at my house, so this sure made up for it.
 I got a freaking three pager from Stace-girl! I laughed, I cried. I miss this woman. A lot.
Annnnnd cupcakes. I think God knew people would have bad days so he let cupcakes be invented. And thank goodness for that because this past week was hellish, and this week is looking to be pretty insane too. My love/hate relationship with college right now is realllll people.
But, let's just say this week will be amazing and pray that it is.

The happiest weekend

This was one of those weekends that makes you feel good about life. It's like you have a really hard week, and you're just freaking out about everything and everything seems to not be going how you would particularly like it to be going, and then a weekend like this happens and you know that God is looking out for you, and every little thing is totally going to be ok.
 So first off lets talk about these people. These girls are 100% hot, humble, and the best company. Something about our freshman ward will make me be best friends with these girls forever and always and I am ok with that.
 Oh by the way we went up to Sundance to bask in Utah's glory and to take pictures. And our roommate pictures if I do dare say turned out darling! Minus the fact that all we had to work with was an iphone......the day I get a nice camera will be the best day of my life.
 The original 1103 kickin it fall style. Seriously Sundance we love you.
And then Sunday happened. Sunday's are always the best days, and this was one of those days that was the best of the best. So you think Sundance is pretty? Drive the Alpine loop. Your mind will be blown. I have NEVER seen anything so wonderful in my life. Like for reals. The leaves are on fire, and then there are snow capped mountains in the background, and you just can't handle the beauty. Also General Conference was the best  (per usual) and I felt God's love so strong this weekend. He really is mindful and loves us all so much. And I am so thankful for that knowledge every day of my life. I am so glad I get to live in this incredible place during my college years. It's the best ever and I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING.
