Its Official

I am hooked!!
Yes, it is to the Bachelor. Honestly the second you start watching it you get sucked right in. I secretly look forward to it every week. Of course I do have my group of girls that I watch it with so we always have a little critiquing party during breaks. I also of course have picked out the girls which I love, and the ones that drive me completely insane. Really I am just in Love with the show, and I cant wait to see how it ends.

The End

 Its offical I ended my wonderful semester on student governement. Its crazy what happens in life, and exactly what you honestly dont think will end up happening. I had such a hard time letting go of this wonderful opportunity, but yes it was my decision. It seems that more and more lately I am having to choose between two good things. Honestly I really have done what I feel is right, but I cant help but remember all of my crazy memories and fun times with such an awesome bunch. It really has helped me so much to develop certain skills, and be more involved than I ever thought. I have made some of the best friends, and it has truly been a semester to remember.  

Abby, Thomas, Cody, Bryan, Jess, RaCail, Eli, Mikai, Anna, Stef, Carissa, Nat, Tanya, Donna, and
of course all of the commitee members.
I love you all, and thanks for all of the fun memories.

The holiday season has come and gone just that fast. Christmas was fantastic!! It was such a nice relaxing time with the family, and time spent reflecting on the life of Christ and the true meaning of Christmas.
 My Chistmas suprises consisted of
a RED kitchen aid which I love- the things you want when you get older
Costco Membership
Perfume and a cute new Purse
A new ski coat, and snowpants
Lets just say we were spoiled. Thanks so much Mom and Dad.
I am so blessed.

Of Course a Temple Square Visit to see the Lights.
Kind of a Must.


And last but not least skiing. I LOVE skiing, and the season is in full swing. Lets just say I am going to be spending as much time on the slopes that I can.
