The Good Things in Life

First of all I am really really excited for my first college semester to be over! Second...I have had a really good week this past week. When I got back from the valley everyone was really happy to see me! That made me feel special. :) On Friday there was a formal dance but I had to work...and it was girl ask guy and I didn't really want to ask anyone out. So after work my roommate Brittany and I just sat on the couch and watched movies. On Sunday I got a new calling, I am now on the Family Home Evening Committee. I am actually really excited for this one. I will really be able to get to know everyone in my family.
Also on Sunday we had a mini Thanksgiving dinner. One of the guys in the boys apartment had a Turkey so we pulled all of our stuff together and had a fancy dinner. It was really fun! It was just like eat food and hang out time. And then after we were done there was ice cream and we watched Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. It was happy! :D
Last night us roommates had our first "fight." It was more like roommate council. We didn't get to bed till 2 or 3 but we got tons of things off our chests. It was good and now everything is peachy keen and now we are all a little bit closer.

And I was just thinking and I decided to write down the things in life that make everything worth it.

The Best Things in Life:
  1. Friends who are willing to put up with all the silly thing you do and say
  2. Family who love you no matter what
  3. The Scriptures and every part of our Religion that gives us all hope (like conference talks that are modern day scriptures meant just for us)
  4. The apartment of Boys who are worthy priesthood holders and good friends that live a stones throw away
  5. Pictures that bring a smile to your face every time you look at them. (Like the ones of my Lindsey's girls and Mindy's pictures on her blog that make me goo and ga every time I look at them)
  6. Late nights with roommates eating ice cream and having in depth girl talk (can't have one with out the other) :D
  7. Having you grandma save up some money for a few months to help you with groceries and ends up giving you $25 :) and then getting out the photo albums and telling stories about when my mom was younger.
  8. Reading letters from you brother on his mission and every week having him tell you wa story and share another little part of his testimony with you. :P
  9. The look of a parent when they are really proud of what you have become and how you are living you life
  10. And most of all.....the little tiny things that just make you smile, like remembering good times with friends and family or watching someone passionately tell a funny story :D

This is Halloween...This is Halloween...

So, not much has happened around here except Halloween, late night parties and the consumption of large amounts of chocolate! No...late night parties are not really a common occurrence in our house but on weekends it is really hard to get the boys to leave our apartment at a decent hour. last night they didn't leave till midnight and I am feeling it today. I guess we are just too popular for our own good! :D So this Halloween was AWESOME! Believe it or not this is the first Halloween I have not gone around begging random strangers for candy. Instead, my roommates and I dressed up and went to the institute dance. Our costumes were top notch (if I do say so my self).

Yeah that's right we were a polygamist family! :D We got the dress at Good Will we were going to buy huge bolder sized rings but we never got around to it. And our hair...oh my gosh I was so proud of the way it turned out! Everyone at the dance thought we were hilarious...except we found out later that one girl who got offended and left. Oh well, that is her problem not ours, some one at the dance dressed up like Osama Bin-ladin, if she was choosing to be offended she should have chosen to be offended by that! My Favorite was when we all stood in a circle during a show dance and all sang "The smile on you face lets [us] know that you need [us]" :D It was classic. I have a feeling it was a legend in the making :D

Anyways...after the dance the boys got it into their head that it would be a good idea to watch a scary movie. Who ever that was should be shot. My roommates "boyfriend" has keys to all the auditoriums on campus so at like midnight he let us all in and set up the projector and we watched "What Lies Beneath" It was cool but I was scared out of my wits, I had to hold Jerah's hand to stop myself from hyperventilating. We were so exhausted by the time the movie was over but all in all I would have to say it was one of the best Halloweens I have ever had!!!

This was after the dance and before the move. We just went a little snap happy! :)
This is Me and Whitney while we were waiting for the boys to set up the projector. After this semester she is going down to the valey to do her student teaching. :( We are going to miss her. We just might get a fish and name it Whitney.
On Sunday Jerah and I just walked around campus and took fun pictures in the fall leaves. It was so much fun. I officially decided that Jerah is the cutest girl ever! :)

We were on our way home and it started to rain so we ran as fast as we could back to the apartment. We thought it was kinda funny that it made us so...uncute, so we took a picture so that our uncuteness could be remembered forever! :D
