Good News

My camera is currently making its way down to Thatcher! That means I can finally post some pictures from Lake Powell and start taking new pictures of my adventures at EA! Woo Hoo!!!!I'm going to Utah this week with DJ. He is going for his mission reunion and I am tagging along to go visit Holly Ann! This trip couldn't have been planned at a more perfect time. I definately need to get away for a few days to clear my mind of some things and I need my Hollis! So I'll be taking lots of pictures up in Jutah since I've actually never been passed St. George and I plan on visiting a lot different places. Things in Thatcher are going pretty well. I have to say, that I absolutely LOVE my roomates! They are so kind to me, and so dang fun! LOVE you Nats, Ra Ra, and AshRee!!

Here's our newest favorite video from youtube. You'll love it, I promise! Everyone we've showed it to so far has loved it. Therefore, if you watch it, you too shall love it! So watch it. Just do it. It's definately worth your time.

opinions, please!

my bangs are in that weird "too long to leave down strait and pretty much too short to not be considered bangs anymore" in-between phase again. sigh. so tell me what you think. should i grow them out again or should i stick with them? i like them (most days), but i'm kinda wondering if i should just go back to the way it's been since forever: long hair with no bangs. i just dont' know and i need your help!

i believe it's time...

you meet our roomies! i know, i'm horrible for not introducing them before. what kind of a friend am i? my sincere apologies. now: on with the show!

Here we have Audra and Cortney. Sadly, i don't have any pictures of me with either of them. sigh. but they are great! Ok, so Cortney isn't technically a roommate. she lives an apartment up and over, but she's always hangin out with us and all that jazz. which is great. we love cortney. and audra... what can i say? this girl is amazing. she's gotta be the nicest person i've ever met. she also looks like emmy rossum from phantom of the opera. love her!
Here is me and natalie. we were being excited to be roommates. natalie is quickly becoming one of my favorite people. she's super fun and crazy. kinda like me, only not quite as cool. just a joke. love ya nats!

you guys already know tawni, and there are a lot of pictures of us already on the blog, so i figured you could just take a gander at those instead of me putting some more on here. sorry, i'm feeling lazy.

I'm so happy to be here in thatcher, especially with these girls, they are so amazing! on a side note, natalie, audra and i just got put in the relief society presidency for our ward. Nancy stepp from show low is the president, audra is the first counselor, natalie is second counselor, and i am the secretary. nancy didn't even realize we were roommates until after she had decided that we were the girls for the job. pretty crazy, eh? but anyway, we are loving our new callings! we just got through our first enrichment night, and all went pretty smoothly. sure, we had about 50 gallons of ice cream left over, but that was easily distributed among some of the girls, and all was A-OK! We're gonna be delivering some cookies to all of the girls in our ward today to try and get to know them a little better. and bribe them to like us. ok, the bribery part was just a joke, but maybe that wouldn't be such a bad approach...?

anywho, all is goin pretty well here in thatcher! we're living it up and loving every minute! heck, classes are even going pretty well, even if we're not enjoying every minute of that.... what can i say? it's school. but we will persevere! ok, now i'm just rambling. so i'm stopping. thank you for your time.

Here's an idea!

I know me and Ashley aren't doing very well updating our blog lately. In our defense, both our cameras are broken. Therefore, we are unable to capture the lovely moments of our lives down here at EA. Sorry, maybe we'll try harder next week. But for those of you who just can't wait for more pictures of us, no worries! I just had a brilliant idea! Our dearest and most lovliest roomate Natalie is a loyal blog updater. She has updated twice since she's moved here. And she is on our friend list. So just mosey on over to our list of friends, click on her name, and enjoy!

most inspiring blog

last night i decided to check out the NieNie Dialogues. I had heard a little bit about it and seen the buttons on the sidebars of other blogs, but I didn't really know what it was all about. i didn't want to read all of it, so i started in the middle of august of last year. This is around the time that Stephanie (aka nie) and her husband, Christian (aka Mr. Nielson) were in an airplane crash. i started reading from that point and went on. i just got done reading today's post. this woman is AMAZING. she has unshakable faith in the gospel and a wonderful family. she won a blog award for most inspiring blog, and it's not hard to see why. even with all of the hard times that she and her family have been through, she's still optimistic and so thankful for the life that she has.
it makes me feel really silly about how sorry i get to feeling for myself sometimes. i read a whole years' worth of blogs, many of which were re-posts of readers' favorites while nie was in a coma following the crash. she is amazing. just go see for yourself.
I've found a new blog to follow.
