Fernwood 201.


I realized today, that I have yet to introduce you all to my lovely new roommates!
How rude of me, pardons please.
It's only been a month, but it's been a month of pure bliss.
They are all like sisters to me, 3 out of the 4 of us are in the same major which makes studying quite convenient. We were all in the same ward last year at the lib.
AND a treat for you, they're all blogging superstars!

you're not hardcore, unless you live hardcore.

We had a bonfire up Provo canyon last night.
It was the perfect way to keep warm.
We had 'smores, orange cakes, and starburst.
We also, randomly ran into friends from freshman & sophomore year who knew each other; playing "connections" is always tré fun.
I hadn't had a bonfire there since spring of freshman year so, my visit was long overdue.
The only downer to the celebration; a spark landed on my hand and burnt a piece of my skin. no bueno.
Although I took my camera, most of the pictures were taken by "professional" photographers.


we had kind of obese marshmellows

study parties. and Oprah.

I have never had so much homework in my life.

I am constantly reading.

I went to bed at 2am last night, my half asleep self was studying with flash cards, the modo, punto, y voz of every syllable in the spanish language.

By some miracle I woke up and got to class on time. I survived today. I had just a yogurt for breakfast and a fairly warm one at that. Our fridge decided to fail on us this weekend, but never fear John Payne is here (he's our landlord) he's great.

It's a good thing I love my classes & my job, because today would have killed me had I not. I can't even comprehend how I was able to finish everything I had to do this weekend. I most definitely had divine help.

God is good all the time. All the time God is good.

on a side note, my mom is a huge Oprah fan.

For years, she's been asking me to help her get tickets to the show. Of course, everyone and their mom is trying to get tickets to the Oprah show, as explained by Glozell.

My mom entered to get last minute tickets and I just filled out 3 reservations to be a part of the audience. We don't have to win a car or tickets to Australia, we just want to sit and partake of the audience.

As I sip some warm (gross) milk, I ask wish us luck! All hail the mighty oprah.

keeping your room clean.


Sometimes, I'm so tired when I get home from school that I dump everything on my bed & when it's time to go mimis I throw everything on the floor and the cycle repeats. It's a very nasty habit. Thank goodness for these things called weekends, or else, my room would look more like a labyrinth of messiness. phew.
p.s. i lovalovalove my new bed spread.

[WARNING] This post has foot pictures.

Yesterday was a super busy day, one of the busiest game days I've ever experienced.
Somewhere in all the hustle and bustle, Jenny tripped on a piece of metal cut her foot open & had to get 13 stitches.
She didn't even get to go to the game.
She was such a trooper!

Jenny's wound kind of looks like a happy face and so Preston used a sharpie to complete the face.
I've named him Spencer.
He's a cutie.




Sammy's Cafe.

College football season has started!
My roommates & I decided to grab some grub right before the game.
Destination, Sammy's Cafe in Provo.
This was my first time going, but I had heard amazing things about their pie shakes!
Apparently Sammy's will put an entire piece of pie in your milkshake.
Unfortunately, because I made a commitment I had to get healthier options.
I had a chicken poly style with sweet potato fries, but I only had like 10 fries before I was full.
It was delicious.

I definitely recommend it.

Different furniture woods.

different furniture woods

I'm giving my new room a make over. I'm getting rid of all the gross cheetah print decorations I have from freshman year and going for a new theme. It's going to take a while to get it all set up. Especially since I left a couple of key things at home & I'm ordering a couple of new things online.

No matter how often I may change my room decor, I'll never get rid of this box. My mom made it as a going away present and it has picture of me & my family découpaged all over. I'm crazy about the antique stain and look to it. It just seems to go perfect with anything. I may not have very much in my room right now, but I love the feel of the different types of woods.

Back to Provo.

I've been in this weird transition mode.
I'm now back at BYU starting my JUNIOR year of college! eeeeee!
I had kind of a rollercoaster week with starting a new job, going to class, accidentally missing a class, buying books, being disappointed,moving in, NEW ROOMIES!..etc.But that's life & it's a learning process.

My Mom and little brother Ezra -- who shall from now on be known by his nickname -- Dudie [pronounced Dude-ee], decided to take a mini vacation to Utah so we could see extended family and so they could drop me off!
We visited family, friends who have become family, had a birthday party for Dudie (9), and visited Temple Square.

It was an adventure.
