Ok so I seriously have the greatest group of friends. We call ourselves the Fab 5 cleaver I know, but really we are just that fabulous. One of these days I am sure I will add pictures from all of our crazy adventures, but for now I just have to explain our home town weekend. Whit and Trumbull both live in St. Geoge so need less to say we have spent many nights over at their house. Which I love they both have the greatest families, and not to mention they're country boys. We have been introduced to all sorts of fun things. Who ever thought you would be disappointed when you missed a baby calf being born, or being chased by a pig, calling animals that stand on all fours your boyfriends, and horseback riding. Ok ya thats us I guess you can say we might be a little hooked. We decided it was time to head up north and show them are stomping grounds. So we had a little home town weekend like off the bachelor just because we're that cool. Friday afternoon we got all packed up and started are little road trip me, toree, trumbull, and whit. Which I love road trips especially with friends music, laughing, and great conversation what we talk about in the car stays in the CAR...right?! Anyway the first stop was my house which we had a nice dinner with my family. Then we played phase 10 and of course B won ....punk. I just love my family so thanks again for everything.
Me, Whit, Toree, Karlie, Stef, and Trumbull
The next morning we headed to church with Toree's family, and then made our way to West Haven to hang out with Stef's family. They also made us a nice dinner, and we just chatted with her family for the afternoon. Then the four of us made our way back to St. George for yet another eventful car ride. This probably was one of the best weekends. Every one of my friends has the greatest families. I just love you all.

Saturday May 7, 2011 I went through the Mount Timpanogos Temple for my first time. I had such an amazing experience and so many people that I love there to support me. I truly am so blessed to have the gospel in my life. I am so grateful for the chance that I have to teach the gospel to the people of Seattle only 35 MORE DAYS!! Where is time going?! Let the countdown begin.

Yes, I decided once again to sign up to run a half marathon. I had so much fun running the first one, and was actually quite suprised at how much I really enjoyed it. I was talking with my roomies, and Jacki decided she wanted to train and run it as well. Of course she was a lot more dedicated than I was with staying consistant. I guess I get this idea in my head that goes something like oh maybe you should register for a half marathon, and then it will actually force you to go work out. Ok I have learned that is not really the case. As we were standing at the starting line at 6:30 in the morning, and not to mention we had been up since at least 4:30 that it is a vicious cycle that never ends. In the moment your getting ready to start your thinking what the heck did I get myself into. Then the days your supposed to do a long run and your just not in the mood, but you have to because you registered. Then as the gun goes off your adrenaline is pumping, and your ready to kick butt. As your run each mile counting up to thirteen you just try and keep yourself motivated then you cross the finish line feeling so accomplished. At that point everything you did or didnt do is now over. Then you decide that you have to do it all over again because it felt so good, and you know you can probably do even better next time....see it never ends. Some how I still secretly love it.The course was beautiful with running around Sand Hollow, fields of green, orchards, and not to mention some killer hills!! Even though I didn't nearly train nearly as hard as I know I could have I finished!! That is enough of an accomplishment in itself.
