I Love College

I think everyone knows by now that I'm having a pretty good springtime in Idaho. The weather is nice (except not today. 90 degrees with 100% sun exposure and no AC. I wonder if this is what Satan feels like all the time??), there's no humidity, and there are so many activities we can do!!!! (movie quote- anyone? anyone??)

So my little sister Becca came to visit me this weekend... but that will be in a later post. Yesterday I had a HUGE photoshoot with a bunch of my friends in a wheat field. Thanks to Becca and Kaitlin, the pictures turned out great!!!! These are just a few... but if you want to see more, just go to my facebook.
This semester has been great for me. I have strengthened some friendships and created many more. I so grateful for the opportunity to come to this school, filled with such amazing people. I honestly hope that I will remain friends with them for a very, very long time. They say you make your lifelong friends in college, and I for one believe it. I look forward to each day that I have left this semester because I know something fun will happen with these people. I love them so much and can't wait until next spring to see them again!!

The End.

I can't believe it's actually over. The Harry Potter franchise is done. I went to the midnight premiere and it was amazing. For those of you who haven't seen it, DROP EVERYTHING AND GO NOW. It was a phenomenal movie, but now I feel like my childhood is over and it's time to become an adult, just like Harry. It wasn't too cheezy, the action scenes were crazy good, and it was just an emotional roller coaster for me. I, like thousands of others, cried like a baby in that movie. I can't believe I did... but it happened. I went in costume with a bunch of friends. It was great!!

Firepower 2.0

Yesterday's grand event consisted of Chris, Jordan, Janee, Breanne, Stesha, and me going to blow holes in stuff with Chris' guns. It was spectacular. Added bonus: I hit 2 pigeons in a row!

Thursday we headed over to Rexburg Rapids and float along the lazy river. So excellent.

Egin Lake

I'm not going to bore you with a huge description of what happened, who went, what we did blah blah blah. Just know it was a blast and Rexburg, ID isn't so bad!

The coolest best friend ever

If you don't know Ariel Sarah Levy, you live an unfortunate life.
She's my very best friend and I love her so much!! The crazy thing is, I've known her since freshman year of high school and after about 3 months of knowing each other we have remained inseparable (except of course, when we're across the country from each other during the school year.).
A little about Elle:
She's hilarious without trying- if you like sarcasm, you'll LOVE Elle.
She's straightforward and says what she thinks
She makes killer road trip playlists
She will always listen to your problems and tell you what to do
She is an AMAZING actress
She loves Power rangers and coffee (grande iced coffee in a venti cup with a butt ton of cream)
She's got the most beautiful hair ever
She's my best friend

Oh yeah, I failed to mention she has a tendency to lick my face. What up with that?

A whirlwind weekend

Wow. This has been the most exciting/entertaining weekend I've had all semester! It was great!! I went to bed a little early on Friday night- (and by early I mean like 1AM) so I could wake up bright and early to head on over to Mesa Falls. We got a huge group together with the intent of going camping and being back home in time for church. We got to the campsite, pitched our tents, roasted some weenies, moved everything to a better campsite (which included putting a 4-man tent on top of Chris' car and holding onto it for dear life to make sure it didn't fall off while we drove to camp site 2.0), went down to the river where our feet went totally numb while climbing up a mini waterfall, photoshoot, back to camp for snacks and dinner. Well, unbeknownst to us, we had picked a campsite infested with some insane super-mosquito nesting ground. Those babies were EVERYWHERE and also happened to be impervious to bug spray. You couldn't walk 2 steps without being eaten alive by at least 3 of them at a time. They even bit me through my strechy pants! Is that even possible?? We finally gave up hope after a few hours and headed back to rexburg. Little did we know, the next day we wouldn't be able to find a spot on our bodies that wasn't covered in bites! It was miserable, especially when you don't have any calamine lotion on a Sunday. I used the strangest techniques to stop the itching such as: putting an x on the bite with my fingernail, using deodorant, alcohol wipes, and last and also strangest, I got scalding hot water, dipped a rag in it and held it on the bites for a couple seconds. I thought I was going to die, but it worked! Was it worth it? I'm not sure...Most of the group at the Warm River- there were fish in there bigger than your forearm!The girls
Totem Pole!
For the 4th, a big group of us went out to Rigby to my friend Andrew's house. His parents served us an AMAZING breakfast and we headed out to the river. Everyone went off the rope swing... except me because every time I do it, I belly flop, and after my delicious breakfast I decided to do everyone a favor and not go so they didn't have to see it come back up. We hung around the dock and watched a dead raccoon float on by. We then got changed, ate some pizza and headed to Idaho Falls for the fireworks. It was such a blast!!
This is what it would look ike if I were to lay next to BrookeAir JesseI adore this picture. Chris and Andrew refused to smile so Breanne came in to rescue the picture. Chris' face makes it though.
I love this dog!!
Chris was showing everyone up on the rope swing
Patriotic nails!!
The one picture that exists of Brooke and Bryce

I finally got in a picture or two...
I love fireworks!!!
