Sophmore year here I come

Well I am getting ready for school to start on Monday. I am kind of nervous because I'm taking some hard classes this semester but I think they all sound good so hopefully I will like them. I moved out yesterday... It's kind of strange and it doesn't really feel like I'm moved out but more like I'm having a sleep over or I'm at EFY or something. The apartment is really nice and my roommates are cool and my RA (resident assistant?) seems really nice too. Today Jamie and I went shopping and had to take the cart back to out room with us because we don't have a car and we couldn't carry all the groceries. I think we probably looked kind of funny. But we did return it afterwards. I miss my family but I think I will miss them more next week. I am so lucky that I only live like 20 minutes away from them though!
Our living room.

Me and Jamie's room.

Lovely desk.

One of my roommates :D

A Cheesy Post for Two Crazy Kids

Camille and Stephanie are pretty much the best friends I've ever had... I have lot of very good friends and I love them all but these two have been with me through more than any of my other friends. I am really sad to be moving away because I'm really going to miss my family and Stephanie (she's practically my sister anyway) and even though I'll only be 20 minutes away it will be strange not seeing them pretty much every day... But we will still hang out a lot so it'll be fine I'm sure. :) I just am going to miss them very much. We pretty much have the most fun when we get together.
So this blog is for Camille and Stephanie because they should know that I will miss them and our walks, our Psych parties, when we get really really hyper and say ridiculous things and laugh like crazy, our deep discussions, chocolate eating, etc. You get the idea. But of course it's not the end of those things... they'll just happen less frequently. Camille and Stephanie are both amazing and I love them so much and I'm glad I have them both to be such good friends for me. I don't know what I would do without them. Seriously, it sounds cliche, but I really would be a very very unhappy person without these two crazy kids

Weekend Trip to Pine Valley.

Over the weekend my mom, my sisters, some friends and I traveled down to Pine Valley which is about 45 minutes outside of St. George. It was a really short trip but it was really fun just to hang out with friends and family for a little while before school starts. (I can't believe Summer is almost over...)
The cabin we stayed in was very nice and very large and was more like a house than a cabin. They had kind of a home theater sort of thing which we really enjoyed. We watched movies until very early in the morning which was fun and then Stephanie got really tired and would say really funny things like "I want banana pops! They look like the lights on the ceiling! Wait a second... I don't even like banana pops... or bananas. They're squishy like slugs." and silly things like that. You kinda had to be there though... haha. Trust me it was funny. We also rode a crazy roller coaster, went four wheeling, had long car rides, played games, etc.
We went to Primm (just outside of Las Vegas) to ride a roller coaster called The Desperado. It was really fun but not as scary as it looks. Oh well haha. I still enjoyed it.
And here are just some random pictures. Unfortunately I only took pictures while I was in the car so I only have pictures of the people riding with me.
Sorry Jamie.. I just think this picture is really funny. :)

Stephanie loves putting her head out of the window... she's like a dog haha.

And this is the view from out the window. 

Our hair was blowing around everywhere with the windows open.


The end!

Shooting stars, birthday parties, sunburns, and rainbows... quite the weekend.

This last weekend was pretty adventurous but wore me out more than I've been worn out in a loooong time. I liked it a lot though. I'll start with Friday night. 
So Stephanie, Camille, and I decided we wanted to sleep outside in Stephanie's backyard on her tramp because none of us had ever done that before and I guess everyone else has... We had quite the exciting water party with Stephanie's awesome sprinkler that can change patterns just by twisting it. We also went to the park in the middle of the night and found out that many teenagers do that... we're kind of like monsters... we wait until dark and then we all flock to the park. Apparently? But we swung on the swings up to the starry sky which was very beautiful and then we saw a rather large shooting star that was blue and then red and I'd never seen one quite that cool before. Then we laid on the tramp talking and being silly and listening to Camille's ipod. Then Camille and I fell asleep but I woke up awhile later to Stephanie and Camille's persistent giggles... and yeah they were making fun of me sleeping. :P But we decided to have 4:00 am s'mores since we were all awake anyway. They were quite delicious actually. We stayed up for awhile after and ended up getting very little sleep. But that's the way sleep overs are supposed to be right? Camille and Stephanie are just amazing friends. I don't know what in the world I would do without them.

The next day Stephanie, Jairen, and I attended Alexi's birthday party. We went up to Willard Bay to go boating. We had SO much fun! Stephanie and I kept riding the tube and we would hang on for our lives but we kept telling the driver to go faster and crazier and when we got off we were so dizzy and laughing hysterically and I'm afraid we looked a little insane. But we didn't care. :) We thought it was pretty dang hilarious. We did that for almost 6 hours and then headed back home and on the drive we saw the most beautiful double rainbow! So thanks to Alexi we had an awesome day! I am now sore and sunburnt but it was way worth it. And here are pictures of course...

The birthday girl! 

Yup. I told you we went insane.

Mmm sugar! Just what we needed.

Crazy sunburn from tubing!

How intense.

*Stephanie starts falling* 
Me: No! Stephanieee!!! Don't give up now!
That is what's happening in this picture.

I love the way the world looks through rain drenched windows.

Double rainbow all the way.
All across the sky.
It was way prettier and more vivid than that... but it was hard to capture.

Well that's the end. Thaaaaanks for reading!

The Birthday of Alexi Wilcox

Alexi Wilcox is awesome and today is her birthday! I haven't known her for too long but we're already good friends. :) Every day that I have math she texts me and says good luck before my class which I really appreciate because I definitely need the luck. She never forgets either. She is really nice and cares about her friends very much. She had a really awesome birthday party yesterday and I had so much fun! I will write about it tomorrow. She's fun to hang out with and fun to talk to and just an awesome person overall and I hope she had a great birthday!!
