2010 in a nutshell.

This is Stephanie's version of the year. I like it better than mine because she went into more detail. A lot of the things she mentions are things she did with Camille and I and I had forgotten them so I didn't mention them on my blog. 2010 was pretty awesome I must say.

Here's the link to her post.

Goodbye 2010.

The year is almost over and all in all I'd say it was a pretty good one. I am excited for 2011 though.
Here are some of my memories of 2010:
Holi Festival in March.

In April I went to my first Il Palio and Stephanie got her appendix out.

In May my cousin Sunnie came to visit for the first time in forever and Camille and Stephanie went on their first prom.

In June I turned 19, Stephanie adopted two cats, and my family and I went to Monterey and San Francisco.

In July my family participated in a 10 k run (walk for some of us), watched lots of fireworks, I went to Twilight Concert Series to see Beirut, and we discovered our favorite cupcake cafe.

Also in July my Aunt Karon and cousin Chris came to visit so we were able to see the extended family a lot which was fun.

And Tate, Stephanie, and I hiked to Escalante cross and watched the sunrise.

In August I went to a pretty fantastic birthday party, went on a girl's trip with my sisters and friends, and moved out.

In September Jamie and I went to Tyler's birthday party where he broke his head open.

In October I became a sub for a bowling league team, fell in love with Cafe Rio, went to church with dorky glasses on my face, and took pictures with some college friends.

In November I had a lovely Thanksgiving with my family and went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter 7 with my sister and friends.

In December Jamie and I had a dress up party at Claire's (in the mall) and I celebrated Christmas with my family, and I found out I actually passed my biology class. Yay!

The end.

Once upon a time...

I made a poster of Andrew Bird for a birthday present awhile ago. It's not amazing or anything but I stumbled on it today while I was bored at work and decided I wanted to post it on my blog. It's based on one of his songs that I really like so.. yep.

I love Christmas. And breaks from school. And being home. So, as you can probably imagine, I'm pretty happy with life at the moment even though I do still have to work. It has been a really good week though.

Every year for Christmas Eve all the Utah family members from my mom's side get together at my grandparents' house. We play ridiculous games, eat delicious food, open presents, and talk.

Then we celebrated Christmas day just as our own little family thing and it was really nice and relaxing. 

Also, I received this wonderful thing from my parents: and they even personalized it so on the back in tiny letters it says: "Allergic to washing machines." (referring to what happened to my last ipod). I love it! And the other gifts I got were fantastic too.

But really my favorite thing about Christmas is being able to hang out with my family so much. It sounds cheesy but it's true. So there.

It's finals week. The semester is almost over and I am so excited. I just have to make it through the next two days first. My friend sent me this picture and I thought it sums up college pretty well. I think, in most cases anyway, adequate sleep is the first thing to go.

Anyway, time to get back to studying. Have a good week!
