As of Lately

Well here you go, my life again in pictures. Haha Its easier for me to write a thousand words with my camera. :) 

Connor Playing Football, and Dad wearing red for the first time ever! 

Lunch with my girls, and meandering through the Latin Festival. 

Labor Day hike with Kaitlyn and Christina, and my family. 

Inside Timp Cave

Before the Texas game, as the rain rolled in. 

We looked like we just jumped in a swimming pool, fully clothed. 

Leaving P Town, heading to LA. 
A little side note on this one. Kaitlyn's Dad is the stake president in LA and her mom called (thursday night) and said that President Uchtdorf might be at conference on Sunday. 
So we took of Friday after work.... 

Hitting the beach


Heading home after the Conference and Lunch

Park City with my Brother P

Doing puzzles with my girl Erynn

Waiting for 5 hours to watch our cougars loose.
 Maybe I'll update again soon, but it might be another while. :)

First week of school

So school has just begun and I already feel like this....

No major causes just little things all adding up with-in a three days time. 
But I'm hoping this weekend I can just relax and get a grip on everything. 
I think i have successfully reorganized my class schedule, almost gotten all of my textbooks, successfully managed to walk into the wrong class (twice), and now I just need to get my work schedule figured out. 

I am confident that the whole semester won't be this way. But I do know for sure that Fall semester is definitely CRAZIER than Spring block. Who knew? 

Anyways I know life will calm down someday, but here is to a new start! 
(Ps I have fabulous roommates)
Here is a Classic First Day of School Picture for you. (this is before the craziness started!)

Its going to be a good semester!!

Playin' with my Pals!

I am so very blessed to have my bestie living with me! Its so scary how often we say and think the same the same. I love being with her! We have been having some fun with our friends in our ward and other mission friends. 
I love playing, and believe that it is always time to play. And everyone of all ages should play! 

Weekly Temple Trips!

Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo with the FHE Group

Pre-Park City reunion on the Alpine Slide

Me and My Fabulous lil'Sister Ellie! I love you girl!

Happy Independence Day Peru!! We got together with these lovely ladies to make Peruvian Food,
It didn't turn out perfectly, but it tasted good. 

This summer we have been celebrating alot of the un-known national holidays.
This one is National Cheesecake Day!
Best Raspberry Cheesecake Shake... JCW's

And one of my favorite parts of summer is being out on the water with the pretty yellow boat. 
After a couple attempts this past week, We finally made it out on the lake. :)

Awkward Photo, after 20 attemps with our eyes open and Pheobe in the pciture. 

Here is to a couple more weeks of Summer!!! Only a couple more to go before school starts.
And something weird... I'm not completely dreading school this fall.

Road Trippin'!

I believe that every summer needs a road trip. Friendships are formed and memories are made! I love being on the road with tunes and stories and laughs. 

 I am so luck to be living with this girl! Its going to be one 
month of adventures! She is my other half! 

We set off friday after work and we drove to Las Vegas, lots of singing and laughing. 
We drove the strip and stayed the night in Vegas. 
We went down to the hot tub and there were some sketchy people, so we just sat 
there and spoke spanish all around them. I love it! 

 The next morning we took off early for Mesa. 

We received new that our good friend Marvin Yat had been in a car accident, while serving with the missionaries in his ward. He broke his pelvis and was life flighted to Guatemala City. 
Please keep him in your prayers in the next weeks. Its going to be a long recovery. 

Elder Felt, Elder Yat, H. Shearman, H. Sandstrom
So once we were in Mesa, we went over and hung out with the Turks. 
After we met up with some other returned missionaries, and went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. 
So yummy!

After dinner, I was able to stop by and surprise my cute little cousins in Gilbert. It was so great! It was a little late at night and i didn't  get to see them for long, but it was sure worth it. These are the cuttest kids that live in the state of Arizona! 

So the Turk's homecoming was incredible. They are my greatest role models. I feel completely rejuvenated from hearing them speak and being around them. The gospel is so important, and how we live it is even more important. I have been refilled with the member missionary spirit.

I'm so grateful for President and Sister Turk. They are incredible parents, and they have such strong testimonies of the gospel of Jesus Christ. They know what things are really important, and how to be happy. They have so much love for the scriptures and for each other and for their missionaries. I'm so happy that they are apart of my life. 

After lunch at the Turks, we had to hit the road to be able to make it Las Vegas before it was too late. 
We were lucky enough to stay with Kyrsten that night. We became best friends the summer before my mission, and while I was gone she met Seth. They were married just before I got home, and this was the first time I was able to see them since I have been home. 
Seth is a great guy. I love them both. 
I'm so glad that I was able spend a couple of hours with them. 

It was a great road trip! And I'm ready for another one, just let me catch up on some sleep first.

College Life Never Changes

So as a college student there are always dumb things that we do, to which we have horrible justifications. This past week was no excuses. 
Last wednesday I had to have a Sleep Deprived EEG so we could try and find out more about my headaches. So this meant I had to go to bed from 11-3 and then be awake from 3-8:30. My wonderful friends volunteered to get up with me and make a trip to Denny's, followed by an office marathon. 

L to R: Jesse, Ben, Travis, Alexis, and I

That same night we went to downtown Provo to stake out spots for the 4th of July parade. We somehow managed to stay awake all night long. (who knew all of provo comes alive and out on the 4th)

fireworks :)
Karissa and I in the early morning

 So thanks to the Boscos we all got to go to Stadium of Fire! Kelly Clarkson was amazing!

Sunday was game night. I taught these fellas Books, it was a success. 

Opening night of Four Guys' Ice Cream

 Summer isn't summer without a diet of Otter Pops and Shaved Ice

Thanks to Legrand, we had an awesome firework show! 

And the past five days have been finished with FHE - Twister Pudding. It was as great as it sounds. 
Slippin and a Sliding. 

And the best part is.... Summer is only getting going!! :)

I will never change

So I know I keep committing to be better at this blogging stuff. But oh well, I'm too busy playing than writing on my blog. So this is what has been going on in the past month....
I finished my classes with A-'s. I'm happy!
I bought a car! I feel so grown up!
I managed to be a clutz and sprain my ankle on the stairs on campus. 
Then we partied it up at Lagoon! 

And to finish off June, we couldn't forget Strawberry Days Rodeo :)
Now on to the next adventure.... stay tuned
