2 posts so far....dang I'm good.

Well it's been a while since I've updated my blog I just thought to myself "hey why don't you update your blog" first of all I wasn't sure why I asked myself a question, and then I got scared because Renee (Mom) is in my head. Anyways moving on. So the past few weeks has been fun and have just been a great time here at BYU-I. I'll just list a few of the things that have been going on. This post is a little scattered brained so just go with it.

Cheri, Jessie, Emma, and I all went to Idaho Falls for some leisure time as roommates and had a great time hanging at the mall and looking at things that none of us could afford. We got some free stuff from Macy's cosmetic counter. After that we went to Chili's for some loving and had a great lunch. We missed Chari and Beth, but we had a good time. We kept trying to get a group shot and this is the best we came up with. Don't judge me for my lack of make up.

Beth, Chari, and I went to the temple. It was the first time I went to the one in Rexburg and it was a good experience.

We here in rexburg were on a snow free kick. It was great. We semi saw the sun and half of the time we didn't know what to do with ourselves. Well that didn't last long. Mother Nature can be such a jokster sometimes because it then dumped snow for 4 days straight....not lie. Going to church was horrible because Emma and I wore opened toe'd shoes....needless to say we both wanted to die. So here are some pics of that day.
This was the kind of snow we had to wipe off the car after it being parked for only 3 hours!

Another Emma & I pic

Emma feeling the Idaho chill.

Jessie and I just loving the cold

I tried to get a group shot and it didn't work, but as you can see by Cheri's face it was a great day.

I'm the visiting teaching coordinator in my ward for my calling. It's the first calling that I've had that hasn't had to do with music and I'm loving it so far. I had to make assignments, give them to the girls, and then think of a creative way for the girls to remember who they teach. Magnets and scrap paper was what I came up with. I quit like them. Now I know it's not Racheal Ray status but I try. (I tried channeling Robin Ray/Karla Hunt/Judy Prince (all great Young Womens leaders at one point)

Courtney my old roomate came over. After watching a movie and just chilling we decided that it would be a good idea if I put on my footsie pajamas and take pictures. And thats how these beauts came about. I know it seems ridiculous that we have these but we do and I love em.

Elder Christofferson from the quorum of the twelve came to BYU-Idaho for a devotional. All of my roomates got tickets to go to where he was speaking. The only problem was that it was snowing (day 3) and we had to wear skirts. So emma and I did what we had to do to stay warm.
Thats right. Jeans, snow botts, and dresses. We try.

After devotional we came home for some chips and dip.

Finally last weekend we had a relief society sleep over at a ranch. The ranch was thirty minutes away from town. It was so much fun and so needed to get out of town. The scenery was great but once again freezing. We had a great time though and took one pick of our car before we left.

Well that was all that I have for now. Told you it was scatter brained. Mom's the best!
