Engagement!






That's right! We're engaged!




David came to Washington for the first time this last weekend. We tried to do as much as we could with the little time we had. Luckily the weather was perfect! We went sea kayaking, spent a day in Seattle, visited all my favorite beaches and did a little skim boarding. We visited Pike place Market in Seattle to see all the bums and crazy people. It was pretty fun!!

Last few days in Provo


This last week was a crazy one. With everything from finishing finals, moving boxes, cleaning checks, and graduations, I was surprise to have time to do something fun. Thursday morning David and I decided to hike the Y. Boy was I out of shape! But it was fun and it was something I had on my list to do all semester. On Friday morning we went with David's family and hiked to Brittle Veil Falls.
It was gorgeous!
Later that day David had his graduation. He's a big boy now.

I spy with my little eye....David!

What a studly looking couple ;)

Oscar Night

Last weekend my ward threw an awesome Oscar Night. In preparation for the evening, each FHE group had to create a short film. Each FHE group leader was asked to pick a genre... for our group I picked Action. It turned out great! We had a blast filming it and we ended up winning! I couldn't figure out how to post it on here but I have a link to facebook where you can watch it.

A coup
le of weekends ago I went to this Hindu Hare Krishna festival thing... what is Hare Krishna? Well according to good ol' Wikipedia:

"The Hare Krishna mantra, also referred to reverentially as the Maha Mantra ("Great Mantra"), is a sixteen-word Vaishnava mantra made well known outside of India by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness[1]mantra appears within many traditions of Hinduism and is believed by practitioners to bring about a higher state of consciousness when heard, spoken, meditated upon, or sung out loud."

Basically, a lot of BYU student go because you get to throw colored chalk at each other. And by a lot... I mean A LOT of students go.

We took a quick "before" picture before we left.

We sat in traffic for about 2 hours just trying to get there. We decided to start taking pictures to keep ourselves entertained for a bit.

David gets burnt really easily so he put a towel over his head for most of the time...
He looks like a little baby or something lol










Of cours
e, when we got there they were sold out of chalk. But luckily a few friendly strangers were willing to throw some at us so we could look cool too.

Spring has finally arrived!

This conference weekend has been one of the laziest, most relaxing,YET rejuvenating weekends I’ve had all semester.


Saturday started off with a quick run with my roommate Kristina to the Provo Bakery. We picked up some baked goodies for our boys for breakfast. It was my first time there and I was pleasantly surprised. My favorite was the cinnamon twist. It was a cute little bakery with a big selection.

We got home just in time for the Saturday morning session of conference. For lunch David and I decided to grab some pizza at pizza hut. (We had been craving it all week after watching a dozen or so commercials advertising it). We munched on that during the afternoon session. It was really nice being able to sit at home and watch all the sessions. This year was the first year I didn’t miss any... well except for Priesthood of course.

During Priesthood some of the girls in my ward decided to have an all girl potluck. We had plenty of food and my future roomie (Lindsey) was able to show me around the apartment I will be living in next fall. I’m really excited! It is really big and nice. I’ll get my own room again too! Yippee!

After David came home from conference, we went grocery shopping for Sunday morning breakfast. We made delicious cinnamon and nutmeg French toast with strawberries, cheesy scrambled eggs, and bacon. Mmmm! It was good.

Between sessions on Sunday the sun came out and it finally felt like spring! David and I decided to take a walk to Kiwanis Park. After swinging on the swings for awhile with a playground full of little kids running around us, we decided to snap some pictures. This entertained us for a bit...if you can't tell. Some of these are pretty funny. Take a look-->

David likes to beat me once in awhile...












(We got a good laugh out of this next one)
I told David..."Okay this time look seductive!"





































We call this one our "Walk to Remember" picture.
Haha... doesn't it look like it could be the cover of Twilight or something?

These two are my favorites :)

Photophobia

Well, I know I've been slacking when it comes to posting new things, so I decided to post this video that was taken a few days ago. David and I were messing around on the computer and I started taking pictures with my web cam. As you can see, David is a little photophobic. video
David finally attacked the camera and turned it off.

White winter wonderland...


It's finally starting to feel like Christmas.

That always seems to happen when it finally snows. It just seems odd to me because in Provo it snows sooner, and much more!

I think it only snowed once last year in Washington and that was Christmas day...

Anyways it's absolutely beautiful.



Finals are going... yes going. I have two more to go and then I'm finished! The hardest part is going to bed on time. I'm trying to wake up early to study, but I'm finding that difficult when I can't fall asleep the night before. Tonight I will attempt to drug myself. Oh yes... a few Benadryls should do the trick! Wish me luck...
I fly out Friday morning to go home! I'll have to start my Christmas shopping as soon as I get home :)

I found myself a new favorite place to study. Because I'm afraid of campus, I try to avoid it as much as possible. I have never actually studied on campus... I know it's strange, but luckily I live a block away from the Provo Library which turns out to be better. Thanks to my wonderful roommates Ruthie (see below)



I can leave the confines of my rather lame apartment and venture out into the city..ish.
