a. Egg- Nog or Hot Chocolate?HOT CHOCOLATE!!! It depends on the time of the day! If its anytime during the day its eggnog usually, but if its at night I LOVE HOT CHOCOLATE!
b. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree? He wraps most of them and then puts them by our stockings that are set out on the furniture.
c. Colored or clear lights (house/tree)? I like the white lights! Or clear.. whatever. I think they are so pretty. But on Temple Square I really like how they have different colors everywhere.
d. Do you hang mistletoe? No, but that might be fun to do.
e. Hardest person to buy for? Hmm. I think this year it was Mike. (Not my dad, my boyfriend. LOL)
f. Real tree or Artificial? REAL!! They smell so GOOD and they are so big (at least when we would get one). But now we have to have a fake tree because Joshua is allergic.
g. Mail or email Christmas cards? MAIL!!! MAIL MAIL MAIL MAIL MAIL!!!
h. Favorite Christmas Movie? Polar Express! And Elf.
i. When do you start shopping for Christmas? After Thanksgiving usually
j. Favorite Christmas song? Pachelbel meets U2. I have a lot of favorites but I can't remember them all. I don't like the Christmas Shoes one though, its so sad, I get teared up every time I hear it and I don't like crying because once I start crying I cry for a long time.
k. Open presents Christmas Eve or morning? Last year we opened one on Christmas Eve and it was pajamas! But I have no idea what is happening this year.
l. What do you want for Christmas this year? Shaky. Other than that.. nothing. I keep getting asked what I want and I really have no clue what I want. I am just excited to see all my family and be together and have everyone so happy.
I needed to go to the bank, and Hope said she would give me a ride there (oh the joys of not having a car). Well, I looked up the address and it said it was in Macey's and it was on 1400 N State Street. So we are about to leave and I show the address to Megan. And she said "oh that is right by University Mall!" and Hope and I are like "Really?" So we leave and we head over to by the mall. And We go in the MACY'S, (the department store) and we go in and we are like "WHAAAAA??" so we kinda walk around, just making sure there wasn't an America First there. Well, we go to the car and we see State Street. So, we start heading north on it.. to 1400 N right? Well we pass a MACEY'S on the way there. We reach 1400 N.. nothing! So we go back to the Macey's.. nothing! So I call my dad, because he knows literally everything. Well, too bad he didn't pick up. I leave a message saying we need directions. So I call my mom! She gives me the directions we needed, and it turned out to be the place we would have initially gone if Megan hadn't told us the other place, haha!!! So it took us almost 2 hours to fin the right place and get back home! The place that really had America First was maybe like a 3 or 4 minute drive from our apartment. Mmmhmm. Tonight was the ward Christmas party and it was really fun. We had a good time. Well, now we are going to watch Elf. So I will write more later!!
THE BAD- We got to the car, opened the door. And no guitar. Also.. 2 laptops missing and a bookbag full of schoolbooks. OUCH! There goes our good night! I called home and asked what I should do, my dad said to call the police. Christian txt Jaime and told him, I called 911 and they said they would have an officer call me. Jaime showed up with a Guest Services guy who called church security. The sad thing is when we got out of the car I said "Should we lock the doors?" and Jaime said no and so we just went. It was a little odd, the 2 laptops, the bookbag, and the guitar was taken. But my Ipod was left and so was Jaime's stereo system that isn't set up and is just chilling in the back of the car. The trunk was also forced open, and nothing was touched that was in the trunk. It was a little weird. We were all pretty ticked. Church security came and took down notes and Jaime's number. We left and the cop called me. So I was on the phone with him and The smart boys up front got us lost LOL. So we finally found our way to the freeway, and we had to go to the airport. And I am thinking "WHAAAA?! I WANNA GO HOME!!" Well, we finally get to the airport, take the shuttle, pick up Roman, and then start heading back. I decided a chocolate shake and a roast beef sandwich from Arby's might make me feel better. So. We get to Provo, go to the closest Arby's and its closed. (BTW, it was after 12 so it was Monday morning not Sunday night.. I made sure of that Bishop!) I made some statement about "drowning myself in my cereal bowl" or something like that. It was a legit bad night. I finally get to my apartment at 1:10! AGHHH... So I go in and start unpacking. I ate some Ramen and decided I was really tired and I would just take a little rest. So I get on the couch with my blanket and pillow.
THE UGLY- Yeah, nice little rest til 10 AM! I missed my first 2 classes. Well, on my way out the door I remembered I needed my keys, so I turned around really fast just as the door shut. Well, I didn't have time to get it unlocked now so I figured I would do it after school. So I go to my class and before class starts I check my Facebook, and my roomie is on! And she usually gets home around the same time as me, except for when she has homework and stays later at the library. So I Facebook message her and we talk about Thanksgiving for a minute. Then I IM and ask her when she is going to be home. No response. So I said I locked my keys in the apartment. No response. A few minutes later she signs off. Sigh.Well, I start walking home and her Facebook status said something about leaving her phone at her apartment. And I think "well, I will txt her and if I get a txt back then she is home and I don't have to go rent out a key" So I don't get a txt back and so I go rent a key. But I guess she was at the apartment. So I go return the key. I go back to my apartment and turn my music and am jamming. And my roomie calls. And I answer my phone and she asks me to take her tripod to her. She was on campus. Campus is a half hour walk from my house. Sigh. I just said I would take it to her. Hooray for exercise. That is about it for my adventures so far. I love you all!
This is the most creepy guy I have ever seen ever. The one on the left. Painted like the Joker. BYU style. Weird. And scary. He didn't even pose for this pic, he didn't know I was taking it. He really just looked that scary.
My red streak. you can see it when my hair is up, but when my hair is down you can't.

And after the True Blue Slip n' Slide!! (From left to right: me, Lauren, Renee)
Taking pics in the bathroom. Notice Lauren's shirt color. It was white before we got in the foam.
Close up.. and a cute face. I tried to do what Nate does, but I can't do it as well.
I have a blue foot and a blue leg!! And.. the blue didn't come off all the way when I showered..
SO! Here is the story to the above posted pics! ITS HOMECOMING WEEK! So today they had True Blue Football, and its where you play football in what else, but blue foam! There was also a slip n' slide. And volleyball in foam. And a huge place on the grass to play in foam. And hula hooping in foam I think. And jello eating in foam.. okay not in the foam. Just jello eating. So we played in the foam. And went down the slip n' slide. And there was SO much foam on it. So when you are going down, it shoots up all over you, and gets ALL over, and then you can't see anything at all. SO FUN. I recommend it. Questions, comments, queries you know what to do! Love you all!
Trapped! We have so much fun together. Definitely best buds.
This is one of my favorite pics, I love it so! It akes me laugh evertime I see it. Its a classic.
Me with my game face on!
The team doing the haka!!
Oh and also, yesterday I tried calamari. Whoo!
Questions, comments, queries, concerns, etc- you know what to do! Love you all!
1. Being with my family!!
2. Sleeping in late.
3. Turning on the paper lanterns in the living room of the apartment and looking at them or sleeping on the couch under them.
2. Getting sucked under an escalator at the top or bottom.
3. Someone hiding in the shower and I don't know.. hence why I check the shower every time I go in the bathroom and shut the door.
1. Showing you all up and not getting married for a long time!! HAHAHA. Seriously though, I don't want to get married for a while.
2. Getting down to Ogden soon to see my family.
3. Doing my laundry today.. I've had to do it since Tuesday I think..
1. I'm currently collecting.. friends? Its a slow process, but I'm working on it, LOL.
2. Current obsession.. my laptop. I can do basically everything important on it! Like homework and blog and email and watch movies.
3. BYU football. Its one of those things that just make Saturdays okay to the best ever.
1. I didn't wake up to my alarm this morning. It was supposed to wake me up at 8 and I didn't wake up till 8:27.. two minutes after I was supposed to leave for class! But.. I made it right on time thanks to my amazing long legs and speed walking. LOL, probably just fast walking.
2. I would much rather eat brownie batter and cookie dough than the finished product.
3. Now that I don't live at home I drink out of the milk carton because it saves me washing a dish and pouring too much.
Tagging: My mom, Ali and Britt :D
There was a Llama petting zoo!! So of course we had to go check it out. The brown one kinda looked like he wanted to charge, so I stayed away from him just a bit. Plus they were standing in a lot of poop and I had flip flops on.
This is the Krishna temple. Its in Spanish Fork. Its really pretty and really really cool. I didn't realize another person was getting a picture too. But I think I look more happy and thumbs-upsy than her. But she looks more native. So I think that means we are at a tie.
This is when we were walking up there. It was a bit of a walk, but totally worth it! The architecture was so stunning and beautiful!
We watched a play and at the end they blew up a big huge bad guy.. and he burst into flame and fireworks. We were so close we got ashes in our eyes. I think it was a cool effect. If you look on the left side of the picture thats a monkey's head and above that is some arrows. Those were Raam's arrows. I guess he is one of the gods they worship. It was really insightful and really cool.
So we headed to the Indian fest (Renee, Lauren, Eun Joo, and I) and we got there and went inside the Krishna temple. We had to take our shoes off and we sat down on this huge rug. They had incense burning and it smelt pretty good. It was relaxing. Then there was some guys up at the front playing some authentic music. It was so cool! Then these two girls stood up and did a dance to the music. There was a shop downstairs and I bought a bag and a necklace made in India. After that we headed outside for the Llama petting zoo! One llama looked like it was going to charge. So we didn't stay too long. After that we watched a play and at the end the bad guy (as you can see above) got blown to pieces. It was really cool. Afterwards we booked it. Well, thats about it for my fun and eventful weekend! Oh except then Lauren and I went to a way cool party dance thing. And danced the night away and got caught in a mosh pit thing. We almost fell over and got squished. But it was still fun. Oh and after that we went to Renee's for some vegan cake. And it was actually pretty dang good! Well, I think that is all! Love you all!
We are getting our game faces on. WITH MATCHING SHIRTS!!!
The BYU Edwards Stadium. This place was HUGE and packed!!!
This picture is solely for my mom. She loves marching band type things. And so I thought of her and took this picture.
Lining up for a great play that led to a 59-0 victory!! Go Cougars!!
We had so much fun! Koriann came over on Friday and she woke me up from my nap. And we took her stuff into my apartment and then we chatted it up about all the ward gossip.. haha! And then we went out for pizza and it was soooooo good! And then we came back and tried to set up her Wii.. But we couldn't get it to work. So we decided to watch some movies. So we watched Just Like Heaven and The Italian Job and the Trek 2007 movie (it still makes me cry, I felt bad I was like bawling during it.) and then we turned on Enchanted. But before we turned on Enchanted we made a cake! It was like 12:30.. so we decorated it the next morning. The next morning we slept in late and woke up and ate Fruit Loops and decorated the cake and went to the BYU GAME!!!! It was so much fun. We totally kicked some butt. The best play hands down was when UCLA lined up to go for a field goal and BYU was going to try to block the kick. Well, BYU didn't get to block the kick in time, but the ball went way right of the goal post. We were laughing so hard. It was amazing! After the game we came here for some cake and ice cream to celebrate the win!! A little while after that Koriann had to head home. We had so much fun though. Thanks so much for coming down Koriann! Love ya! After she left some friends and I went to an Indian Fest, but I will tell about that in my next blog post.
Well, I am now officially living in Provo!! Whoo hoo! Happy Valley! Anyways, I moved down Tuesday night. My parents drove with me and we unpacked all of my stuff and everything. My mom kept snapping pics of me looking around and unpacking, so those pics are probably on her blog if you want to check them out. When my parents left I was all alone.. none of my roomies would be coming until Wednesday. So.. I turned on my music because it was just so dang quiet! I’m so used to the noise of my siblings and it was just way too quiet. I ended up making my first meal my mom was all ecstatic about this and kept emphasizing my first meal on my own. Geez.)The Spaghetti-o’s were delicious. Then I put on Mr. Bean’s Holiday and watched it and just chilled out. I finally went to bed but it took a while because I WAS ALL ALONE. I woke up and had my first breakfast. Cereal. Whoo hoo. My roomies finally arrived! Finally! Megan came first and she is from Draper and she had her mom and dad and grandma. Then came Lauren and she is from Grand Junction. And then came Hope!! She lived in West Jordan. She lives in my room with me and she is pretty cool! She plays the acoustic guitar too. We all should be having some fun times. Wednesday night there was a BBQ and that was fun. The food was good and the company, enjoyable. There was a movie on a field but we headed back home to watch Enchanted! You gotta love chick flicks and snacks! Today Hope and I went to campus and got lost.. oh boy. That was fun. But we made it back to home! Well, that’s about it for now! Love you all!
Okay, so I just finished Eclipse and I just need a little venting time. Aimee told me she would give the ending away if I kept going off. Anyways. So I admit.. I'm furious that she picked Edward over Jacob. ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS! Yeah yeah she needs Edward or whatever but I think Jacob is better for her. I like his personality so much better. And he's half human so that's gotta be good for something. And just contrasting werewolf and vampire.. I'd hands down pick werewolf. Hands down. Plus how Jacob is somehow always warm sounds pretty nice. I'm not a person for cold and hard people. I wish she picked Jacob. I still have one book to read and I hope she gets with Jacob. Well, that's all for now.

- I can't stand it when Syd leaves her hair in the bathtub drain or in her brush. Or squeezes the toothpaste from the middle of the tube. Even though she has a different hairbrush than I do, I still can't stand it to see all her hair wadded up in it. GROSS!
- I don't like a couple foods some people can't live without.. like.. Potato chips. Root Beer. Licorice. Carrots. Almond Joys. Oatmeal.
- When I talk I say potato with a "B" on accident so it sounds like botato. And my mom makes fun of me.
- I have to check the shower every single time I go into the bathroom and shut the door. To make sure someone isn't in there, like Sydney trying to scare me or something.
-I have to wear a belt with my jeans no matter what. It doesn't matter if they are a bit big or a bit tight, I ALWAYS have to have a belt. ALWAYS.
-I'm a sleep-holic. I love sleeping. It doesn't matter if I'm tired or not, I LOVE sleeping!! I could sleep all day! Especially Sundays. The day of REST :) I'm a night person and I like sleeping late in the morning and my mom says "I'm sleeping my life away" :)
I'm tagging: Ali, Britt, Julia (mom), Samantha Wayment, Ovesons, and Heather Taylor
