True Blonde

So, I just thought this would be a funny story to share. Those of you who know me well, will probably find this more humorous because its something I would sooooooo do. Last Sunday I woke up and left the lights turned off for Todd, because he didn't have to wake up for like another 2o minutes. So I thought I'd be a nice wife and just dress in the dark, trying my hardest not to disturb him. Well, like a usual Sunday morning I was hurrying to get ready, -being that church starts at 9am, i'm always in a rush. So I finished getting ready just in time to jump in the car and head down to church. I had gone through 2 sessions already and was sitting in relief society next to my grandma when i put my feet up on the chair in front of me. I looked down in confusion and realized i had two different shoes on!! And that I was wearing them like that the whole day! I was soooo embarrassed as i nudged my grandma and showed her. She just busted up laughing as i took a picture of it! Ha ha. I spend the rest of church trying to hide my feet underneath me, and as soon as it was time to go, I got out of there. Me and my family had a pretty good laugh about it later at the dinner table. :)

Todd vs. Frolfing

So i decided to take my friends advise and write about Todd's Frolfing experience today. I had a test this morning and Todd decided to come up with me to meet up with his friend Devin to play Frolfing. I've never heard of such a silly sport before. I got done with my test early and decided to join them. I was actually surprised how fun it was. The little Frolf baskets went around a small pond on the campus. Sometimes we had to be careful when we threw our Frisbee's because the pond was so close. On one throw Todd got it close enough to the water where his Frisbee just rolled in. He hurried and took off his shoes and shocks to step into the water-only being a few inches deep. Walker ran over to his side and told him as he was stepping into the water that it was going to be slippery, but by that time it was too late. Todd slipped on the moss and fell in the water. The water came all the way up to his neck as he called out for help. Walker reached out his hand and pulled him out just soon enough so he could throw out his phone on the grass. By this point i was laughing my head off, but hurried to his side to help him. But he was soaked! So that was the end of our Frolfing game. We walked back to my car and i gave Todd the only dry cloths i had in my car. They were some spandex pants and a small black hoodie. He changed in the parking lot and just looked hilarious wearing my cloths. It really made for a good story. Todd was a good sport as me and Devin laughed and took pictures of him with our phones. Ha ha. I love you Todd.

God Bless America...

I was reading my friend Amanda's blog where she posted a little clip on "where you were" when 9-11 hit, and I too wanted to say a little bit about it and where i was. I was a sophomore in high school and when i woke up that morning, i remember my parents telling me a plane had hit one of the twin towers in NYC. It didn't really hit me how bad it was until i actually saw it on TV. Then when the 2nd plane hit, i knew, right then, something was very wrong. I knew it couldn't have been an accident but an attack on us personally. As i went to school i know what Amanda means when she said it was really quiet that day. A sense of unknowing fear crept through the hall ways. Instead of a normal day of class, my health teacher turned on the TV and we watched the news instead. Then I remember coming home to the news on and how everyone was stuck to the TV just watching. Waiting... And i remembered watching the twin towers collapse and seeing the horror in my mothers eyes. I couldn't believe i was witnessing an attack on America and how it would go down in history. It didn't really hit me how bad it was for everyone there until stories started to unfold- How people put their lives on the line to save one another. How we acted as real hero's in a time of real crises. And how many lives were lost... so many lives... My heart goes out to all of the people who lost their loved ones that day. I was very grateful to be standing in my house with my family at that time. But even after all that, I remember how America stood tall and how we worked together and become closer as a nation. It made me proud to be an American, and i hope God continues to bless us and America!

No Camera... No Posts...

So... we haven't updated anything for a while because I like to put pictures up with most of my post, and being that i don't have a camera that works... well, you see where I'm getting at. We are hoping to get one soon though, and hopefully we do so i can start to put up more exciting posts. Other than that, nothing really exciting has been going on. However, we did go up to Farmington to celebrate Emily's birthday over the weekend. It was a lot of fun! I think she just turned 25! ;) Then on Sunday we attended Lindsay and Shafers Baby blessing for little Maxwell. He is sooo cute! And it was really fun to see where they live now. Then we've just been busy trying to get everything settled in. I swear by the time we get everything organized, it'll be time to move again!!!! Lol. well, see ya.

We're Home!!!

Hey Everyone, most of you already know that Todd and I are officially home. Yipee!!! The drive here was 25 hours and I thought i was gonna die for the last 2 hours of it. But now we are finally home, living at my parents house and jumping right into school. :( Sad huh. But we'll try to come visit as many people as we can as soon as we can- we just gotta get settled first. Other than that, nothing too exciting is going on. I'm currently on the market for a job so if anyone see's anything they think i might like, let me know. Thanks! Talk to you all later. See ya. :)
