The Rockin' 80's

Finally at the top!

My favorite part was repelling!

Hey big BOOTY!


Totally would have loved living in the 80's!

I think that my title is so creative because I went rock climbing, and I went 80's dancing! haha  Anyway, yesterday my friend, that I actually like more than a friend, came to visit me from Salt Lake!  I was so excited :)  We had such a fun time.  When he got up here we went rock climbing with his brothers and some of his friends.  This was my first time and I totally had to get over my insecurities cause by booty looked huge!  Not to mention I did not think that I was going to be able to do it.  However, I conquered the climb!  But I am not gonna lie it was super hard! haha  I got my workout for the day.  It is something that I totally want to practice more and get better at.  After climbing we went to Wingers and got some grub.  We were starving!  Then we went and got ready to go 80's dancing! These pics are of me and Nate.  I don't know how 80's we looked, but I did have a Hulk shirt on, and I gave him a women's leather vest to wear over his shirt. We had such a fun time just hangin' out.  I can't wait until my next adventure!

The Day I Got My Lips Back!

Ok.  So I don't know how many of you get cold sores....but they are probably the worst thing ever!  I usually get them every month or two, so I have recently started taking a prescription for it.  However a little over a week ago I got one in the middle of the day, I was muy upset!  So I went home to take me meds and it was all gone!  I figured it would be alright and would probably be a little one.  Boy was I wrong!  I woke up the next morning with 8!  I know...gross!  Iwanted to kill myself.  For those of you have never had one let me tell you something.  They make you feel SOOO ugly no matter how hard you try, not to mention they are caca looking.  After about 1 1/2 weeks later mine are finally cleared up...glorious day!  Obviously, the first picture is a little exaggerated, but the second one is just me glad to have my smile back!  Yay!  Any horror stories about cold sores?  Please share.

So for all of you who don't know I am now an Aggie!  I am excited for this new adventure in my life :)  I have been attending the U for the last few years and was working on nursing.  As my time progressed at the U I noticed that I was trying to convince myself EVERYDAY that nursing is what I wanted to.  I finally came to the conclusion that it was just not making me happy.  And to tell the truth, if I am putting this much time, effort, and money into my schooling I want it to be for something that will make me happy the rest of my life.  So I have made huge change and am starting the Interior Design Program at USU.  I know, totally different than what I was doing before.  Needless to say, I now have a lot of pointless science credits.  Oh well, life goes on.  Why did I choose one of the coldest places on Earth?  Because I am stupid.  I am still a STG girl, and I really don't know how I am going to survive the winter!  haha  
So this is a picture of my room, that is the size of a closet.  I had a really hard time getting rid of my old bedroom set, which consisted of my queen pillow top mattress :(  I tried make my room as cozy as possible, but with the white walls it was a tad bit difficult.  I live with 2 girls who are both a few years younger than me.  This is weird, because I am use to being to young one!  I like the one roomie, and the other one is a little bit of a bitty.  Hopefully we will all get along!
The picture of me frowning is because I am feeling homesick for Salt Lake.  I miss my Shalie, Sita, and Ella so much I cry even when I think about it.  I am SO grateful for them, and they are my best friends.  Spending an entire sabbath day by myself, cause I don't really have friends yet, has been a little difficult.  However, tomorrow I start school, and a new job!  So I will be busy, and thats what I like!

I LOVE my Gramps!

So it has been a year now since my dear Grandpa Clark has passed away, and I have been thinking a lot about him.  I just want everyone to know what a kind grandpa I had.  He was always telling me how beautiful I am, and asking me if I was "chasin the boys" yet.  I spent so much time at Grandma and Grandpas growing up, and cherish all the memories that I got to make with them.  I just want to write a quick list of some of my favorite memories of my Grandpa.  I am sure my cousins have a lot of these as well...
Making me laugh by taking his teeth out
Getting his "buggs"
Playings hours of Hand and Foot
Being baptized... he said he was going to put ice in the water and hold me down!  haha
Fudge on my birthday
The farm in the mornings
Singing.  Far, far too much singing
Jazz Games
Gas Stations
Not being able to tell if he is looking at me or not
Scary sneezes
Pinches on my bum
Playing jokes on him... finger on the forehead
Going to the ranch
Crazy driving
Pouting when loosing a game
Beautiful white hair
Chirstmas Mornings
These are just a few things that I love about my Grandpa.  I really do miss him SO much, and I feel so grateful that he is MY Gramps.  I am glad that I have such an amazing person to look up to, and  to follow his example.  I cannot wait until I get to see him again.  I LOVE YOU GRANDPA!


A few weeks ago my friends and I were in southern Utah.  We decided to go on a little hike in Zions.  We did the Emerald Pool adventure.  It was way hot, so once we were finsished we cooled off by splashing in the river.  Zions is sooo beautiful and I am glad that I grew up around it.  I always loved driving through the park on the way to Granny and Gramps ranch.  It brings such happy memories back.  It was a fun weekend.
