Wanna see something crrrazy?!

My old friend slash love interest sent me a picture the other day wanting to know if it was me.
In case you forgot, this is what I look like (or did look like 3 months ago before I dyed my hair back to dark)
This is the picture I recieved

At first I was like,
Hey.. I don't own any University of Utah paraphernalia. I don't remember taking this picture.
And then I thought he had photoshopped my face in there
and I was like, 'aw Steve, you joker.'
But then I realized it wasn't me
but it almost was.
So let's go over this again.

Not me:

Kinda wild, am I right?
I guess it's a good thing she goes to the U cause I don't think there's enough room for two of me at this university.

Happy Turkey Day :)

Like every student, I savored last week's holiday as a much-needed break.
In fact, I got started early.
Instead of suffering through Monday and Tuesday classes, Ryan and I took off to Texas on Friday night. After several hold ups, we (Myself, Ryan, his sister Meagan, his cousin Jimmy, his cousin Brandon and his girlfriend, Allie) finally had the car packed and snacks bought, and were on the road just as the first real snowstorm of the year kicked up. 12.5 hours later, around 10 am, we arrived in sunny, WARM El Paso, Texas.

From there it was adventure after adventure.
Playing with Grandpa's knick-knacks while trying (and failing) to avoid being portrayed as unattractive to the entire facebooking world.

It's a whistle. Don't judge.

We worked it out. At a prison. Yeah.

We went to see Breaking Dawn with pretty much the entire extended fam. And Ryan inconsiderately laughed throughout the film.

The Twilight Saga can sure work up an appetite.. so we were treated to all-you-can-eat pizza afterward.

Ry taught me some lock-picking basics.

Focus on the successfully picked lock and not how terrible I look in this picture.

Did some shooting

..and went a little crazy

Haha actually that's just the face I made when I realized that shooting a shotgun kind of hurts.

Oh, and Ryan got some shots in too.
We went for a romantic, leisurely bike ride..

had an interesting 4-wheeling ride in the Rio Grande

Went running a coupla times, which I admittedly hated.

Got some desperately needed fresh air after Ryan introduced me to Chico's Tacos

The ride home was the least fun.. Ryan got motion sickness and looked like a zombie for pretty much the entire 12 hours. In his state of delusion, he forgot that we had stuck the cheese in the window so it could stay cool outside. He rolled down the window for some air and the cheese was no more.

 Ryan's family were such wonderful hosts and I had the most amazing time. I cannot express enough my gratitude that I had the opportunity to spend the week with them. They gave me a lot more to be thankful for.

Still, it didn't suck to come home to this!

Long time no see

But I'm back
with tons of adventures to share with the world.
Actually just one.
This one.
Taylor, Me, Caroline, Hailey, Katie: The Roommates
The roommates and I took off to Deer Valley for the first time this school year. And obviously, it was amazing.

Here's why.

Fun with giant teddy bears

 Playing in the snow wearing next to nothing (Some of us more than others... Hailey)
 Getting in touch with my inner.. midget

Jealous yet?

 Delicious food
 Ridiculous matching pajamas
 Sorry attempts at taking a decent roommate picture
There was more, and I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

Provo makes people CRAZY

And I've caught the fever.

I have.

What's a girl to do? With blissfully happy (albeit poor) newlyweds left and right.
Talk of wedding plans around every corner.
Wedding photography blogs out the wazoo that I can't help but look at. (Really! I can't help it!)

All the wedding shows on TLC aren't exactly discouraging me either.
How am I supposed to NOT think about my wedding dress when the media is telling me to say yes to the dress. Hello!
And Four Weddings? That is just a smorgasbord of wedding ideas. Am I expected to resist? I cannot!
If Kim Kardashian is ready to get married, why not me? We're about the same maturity level. Right?!

OK, President Monson. Alright, you crazy apostles. I'll get married! Fine! You win!

(Excuse me while I post pictures from the weddings of people I've never even met.)

I know I'm barely 19. I know, I know!

But I want this!

I want this,



and this.

I want this!

and I want this.

And I want everything that comes with it. The hard stuff, the annoying stuff, the fun stuff, the scary stuff.

I know it's typical and so cliche of Provo.
But you know what?

I accept that I'm marriage hungry.
What of it?

One year older..

19 years old feels incredibly similar to 18. BUT, this has been the most enjoyable birthday I've had in a while. Festivities consisted of a trip to Kaysville with the roommates to visit the fam,
Almost (ALMOST!) excessive attention and adoration from my roommates,

And cherished gifts from all my favorite people, among which came my new favorite snuggle buddy :)
Penguin pillow pet<3
Thanks so much to EVERYONE who made this birthday so special :) Even those who gave me half-hearted virtual birthday wishes via Facebook. It has been really fun and I'm looking forward to another year of this beautiful life I am so fortunate to be living.

Just a quickie..

Been neglecting my blog. Been neglecting everything, really. Have so much to do that I haven't given anything the attention it deserves. So busy, I can't even write complete sentences. Quick update of what I've been up to:

Snugglin' in various positions in the living room (there's a lot more where this came from)
Continued the process of furnishing our apartment. DI has an incredible selection of kitty figurines.
Got some fish
Drove this thing..
..using this thing. Big boy remote controls :)
Spontaneous late-night trips to squaw peak to sip hot chocolate while criticizing all the sketchy cars surely containing couples who drove 15 minutes just to find a place where they could make out in peace. The spectacular view of Provo was a bonus.
Notice homework is nowhere to be found on this list.
