A birthday wishlist:

Lotion for Bath & Body Works

A "lapdesk". An ingenious contraption that lets you do homework in bed. I've seen them in lots of Office stores.

Jewelry from Forever 21. I am most often lusting after Mallory and Ham's accessories, so I trust their judgement.

Only because I'm addicted to this stuff.

In August, Lindsey, Rachel and I will be moving in together. This is what our living room wall will look like. (Minus the Beatles poster that will also be joining them)

Black & white to suit our sophistication. Hot men to please our eyes. Our apartment is going to be real cute. We'll make Sunday dinners together and play card games late into the night. I'm soooooo excited.

Spring Break 2011: Going to be Legendary.

My plans for this Spring Break are pretty short and mostly vague. All I know is WE WILL PARTY.

First on this week's agenda: Road trip to the wonderful Huntington Beach, California. We don't really have any game plan at all. We just want to see that beach. We will live in our swim suits and eat PB & Js for a few days and sleep where we fall. You call it homeless, we call it free.

Next up: Party with the Ace Gang in the new stomping grounds- Saint George. We will cave and play Mariokart and stay up all night laughing and probably go to Cafe Rio. I'm so very excited.

After we tire of St. Geezy, we will caravan to the all too infamous Las Vegas. Why? I'm not sure. Because that's what teenagers do for Spring Break. We will shop and walk and probably sneak into some hotel pools and most likely get into trouble with more than one establishment. But we will have fun.

This Spring Break is long over due if you ask me. Physiology is frying my brain- my skin needs to fry instead and I will not think about school. It's time to party with the ladies- men are so overrated. This is going to be the craziest Spring Break ever.

Hometown Glory

Hello friends. I didn't mean to abandon you, but I have had quite the busy last couple weeks. And not the sort of busy that is worth documenting. Just school school school.

For the time being Lindsey and myself are back in the stomping grounds. We came back to visit the kids and see our pal Ke$ha. She was great. Most definitely the most insane concert I will ever go to and definitely the weirdest crowd of people I will ever be in. She was just as charming as we anticipated.

We are still finding glitter in odd crevices and probably will be for a while.
So much glitter.

Yet another farewell and a trip to Cafe Rio made this trip complete. I couldn't leave without those. I'm not ready to go back to college! Essays and cadavers and exams have lost my interest. I have thoroughly missed the late night dance parties and knowing people you pass on the streets. I cannot wait for spring break and also the summertime when I can come back and reside in this lovely town and stay up all night with my Ace Gang. Those will be the days.

Until then I will conquer my freshman year of college. And believe me, I will rock it. Party school? Nah. Dixie's been good to us. Lindsey and I have managed to do the impossible- make friends that are boys. Do you remember watching the Lizzie Mcguire show and thinking 'That does not happen. Friends that are guys? No. But we've done it! Atleast once a week we hang out with our guy friends and we don't want to date. We just go on adventures. It's great.

Until next time, peace out.

New Year's Revelations. Revolutions. Resolutions?

It's almost twenty 'leven. You know what to do. Make some goals.

1. Be a better daughter, sister and granddaughter. It takes some effort to keep in touch with family nowadays. I'm going to make phone calls and visits like a madwoman.
2. Finish the BoM.
3. Find a real man that will take me to Temple Square during the holidays.
4. Be that one girl that says hi to everyone. That smiles more that not. Oh and I'd like to learn how to give compliments. I'm real bad at that.
5. Buy my first car. She'll be cute and used and I'll love her because she'll be all mine.
6. Get back into my 'good day' jeans. Those were good days.
7. Be a diligent letter writer. Who doesn't love getting mail? No one. So it's a win-win. I get to write letters and spread joy.
8. Raise my GPA. The first semester of college was rough. Let's not let that happen again.

So yes. My goals are the completely cliche three: Find love, be kinder and lose weight. But what else is a girl to say? I got a nice new fresh planner at Barnes & Noble to commemorate this joyous event. I'll check back here in 1 year. Wish me luck.

Out On Holiday.

Babe, I'm back. I'm real excited to be back home. I missed the little munchkins that run around my home and the ladies that I will probably not manage to visit because they're adults with jobs and men and such.

Within the next few weeks my plans are petite. They include sleeping in until noon most mornings, Christmas schopping because I have completely procrastinated in that area, not do a single school related task, and I'm feeling a bit crafty. I'd like to make some cute things like these:

Felt ornaments. I'm thinking maybe some little frosted sugar cookies.

Perhaps some homemade headbands. They're hot right now.

And I'm already half way through this baby. A circle scarf. They intrigue me.

And in between these creavtive endeavors I'll be writing this boy:

I haven't talked to him in three days. I feel weird. My phone has been playing a better paper weight than its intended use. I miss him already. Good thing I'm a huge fan of missionaries or I might want him back.

My Christmas wish list is quite short this year. It includes groceries, shampoo, q-tips and tickets to none other than Miss Ke$ha's concert in February. Why am I attending this ridiculous event? Well mostly because Lindsey told me about it. But why did I agree? For the pure joy of observing this girl's insanity. Yes. It's going to be epic. I can already picture the crowd of people that will be there. I'm psyched.

Long Time, No Blog.

Hello again. I will make no useless promises to be better this time, what a joke. I'll just give a quick update.

I'm still alive. My grades have suffered a bit because of the lengthy break that just passed. It was totally worth it though. I got to see the fam and reroonite with the ladies, oh how I missed you guyves. I got to spend a few days with Dougie and my brothers which is always entertaining. Jordan has turned into quite the vain little JB look alike. Trevor got braces! He is growing up, I can't believe it. And Josh said that he misses me when I'm gone, and he won't miss anyone else when they move out, just me. He also said that he couldn't wait until I got married so he could play with my husband and me and be an uncle. Don't hold your breath, little man.

DJ did an amazing job on his farewell talk. Most of the girls made it there so it was a nice little get together. It was so nice to see the Simpsons again. They make me feel so special.

Thanksgiving was lovely. Alexis was adopted for a few days since her familia went up north and she had to stay here and work. We shared a yummy spread of turkey, sweet potatoes, rolls, pie and all other sorts of goodies that you can think of. It was exhausting and wonderful. We stole the other family's games while they weren't looking by accident. SLAMWICH! It was great.

That night I foolishly took part in the insanity called Black Friday. NEVER AGAIN. I said it last year and I'll say it again. Please, pretty please never let me do that to myself again. Two hours in 13 degrees on concrete spells misery for me. I have learned my lesson universe, I promise.

Lindsey and I played with the Sandy boys and attended Asian Brian's farewell. I just love those things. Little Golden was next and he did so good. I can't believe all these boys are leaving us! I can't wait until they get back!

Back at school, I'm glad to be doing something productive after almost TWO WEEKS. I'm scared for finals. They just sound scary! I came home to a missionary letter. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy the next two years because I absolutely adore getting letters and writing them. Another thing that I am way psyched for is this man right here:

John Vesely from Secondhand Serenade. He's performing with these guys:

(Forever The Sickest Kids) and also this man:

John Allred. Second time with this guy actually. He holds a special place in the musical corner of my heart. It will most likely be the best spent $17 of my life. December 8th. You know where I'll be.
