Yes... I am 20.

Right now I really should be studying for 4 tests... but blogging sounds SO much better!
On Monday I turned 20... and it was an awesome day! I had SO many people call, text or write on my facebook wall. It was so nice to see how many great friends I have! I went with my mom and Ciera shopping and to dinner. It was a really nice day... but at the same time I couldn't help but look back at my life and realize how different my life is than I had ever planned. Two years ago I was a senior in high school. I thought I knew exactly what was going to happen. I had a plan and I thought it was perfect. Little did I know how wrong I was! I would never have guessed that I would be going to Weber and that for the first time in my life I wouldn't have a plan. I am still as clueless about what I want to do as I was when school started. I am just taking it day by day and relying on the Lord.

Lately I have been looking for another job. I love working at Sorenson and I don't want to quit but I feel like I am slightly lazy. I have SO much free time that I don't even know what to do with myself. I applied at a daycare and I got offered a job! I was extremely stoked... until I realized some of the stipulations. I have to sign a contract to work there for an entire year and it only starts out paying minimum wage. I am unsure of whether to take the job. I know that I would LOVE working there but I also know that it is possible that I would find another job that would pay me better that I would love as well. So right now I am just trying to decide what to do there.

I have also been going to school. And of course having fun! :)
I went with Ciera and Stewart to the State Fair. It was a blast!
Hayden LOVES riding horses!
He had so much fun!

Every day I am reminded of how blessed I am to have a sister that is my best friend (and did I mention how talented she is?! She made me a skirt for my birthday, she completely made up the pattern and everything! It is SO cute, pics to come in my next update). Recently I had an experience that just made me feel so grateful to have her in my life. I have always been told that friends come and go but family is forever. This past week I realized how true that is! It is crazy how quickly things can change and over such ridiculous things. It is during these times that your true friends stick by your side. I have seen this over and over again and every time I have a trail I look around and my family is always there waiting to help me. I am so blessed!
Well it is getting late and I still need to study! So thanks for reading! :)

Foam Party!

Last night Ashlie and I went to the Foam Dance Party at Weber State.
When we first got there people were standing around and it was kinda boring.
I was a little disappointed because I had been soo stoked to go.
We were also trying to decide if we really wanted to go into the foam pit or not.
We were worried about being cold... but after a few minutes decided that we just had to experience it, so we went in! And oh my gosh!!!! It was SO much fun! We met some new friends and just played in what was pretty much just like a giant bathtub! So much fun and we weren't even cold (until we got out). If you ever have the opportunity to play in a foam pit I highly suggest you take advantage of it.
After playing in the pit we were pretty much freezing and hungry. So we went to Denny's to get some food and hot chocolate. So we are sitting there eating and these boys walk past our table and I see one of them drop something, the he stops and picks it up and looks at Ashlie and says, "hey I think you dropped your dollar." And Ashlie looks at him and says, "uh no, I don't think I did." He says, "maybe you should have" and hands her the dollar and then walks out.
So we looked at the dollar, and that guy left Ashlie his number!!! (Pretty brave, right?!)
So today Ashlie decided to call him, just to see what he was like. And guess what.... she is going on a date with him this Saturday!!! Crazy how things happen, right?!

Today was fantastic! I had a fun day with my family. We went out to dinner at Chili's and decided to celebrate my birthday again!

I have learned recently that life is constantly changing!
These past few weeks have been very interesting.
I started school at Weber, which is a HUGE change. My classes are all pretty good. But it is just so different than CEU.
Also, this past Sunday I was told that I can no longer go to the ward I have been going to. :( They are sending all of us to wards closer to home. This is definitely a downer. But I have decided to just have a good attitude. I learned a lot while I was going to that ward and really felt the Spirit. I now have the opportunity to meet many new friends and have a lot of new experiences.
I have been working a lot, and going to school but I have also been having a lot of fun!
On Saturday I went to work and then came home to a party! My family had a big BYU game party! We had homemade rootbeer, caramel apples and navajo tacos. I didn't really watch much of the game. But I still had a lot of fun!I got to hang out with Ciera and my mom and all the babies.They are growing so fast I can't even believe it!For Labor Day we decided to just play all day! We went and test drove cars. It was a blast! :) We also went to Texas Road House. We decided to celebrate my birthday a little...Yes I was embarrassed.
And... just kind of a random thought.
I just thought I would write a little about my sister. :)I have so many random memories with her. She has always been there for me and taken care of me. I am so grateful for her and the relationship I have with her.
I love you Ciera! :) Thank you for everything you do for me. :)
