Well I'm back in Utah after a lovely week and a half at home in Arizona with my family and friends. There truly is no place like home; warm weather, blue skies, a clean house, and all of the people I love. What more can a girl ask for?To start off, the trees in my parent's front yard are beautiful! They are NOT frozen and dead like trees in Provo.
I got to hang out with Tara quite a few times. This night we went to see Bradley and his band play in a show, which was really good!
Christmas Eve with the grandparents was wonderful as usual, and our family is very attractive. It was fun to see grandma and grandpa since I missed them over Thanksgiving.
On the way home from grandma's house, mother dear made us pull over to climb this tree... apparently climbing shouldn't be done in heels so I stayed on the lowest branch.
Sushi. Sushi sushi. I love it. Ben and I got some really good sushi when I came home :)
Bradley and I had fun hanging out in the park and enjoying the sunlight. There were tons of little kids playing in the park and it was a beautiful day.
BeccaBeccaBecca. Thats something that you can only get in Arizona. I had fun spending time with her and I miss her already! We went to dinner one night, ran errands together, hung out at each others houses, she took me out to lunch (cause i'm the poor one) and other such things.
One night Ben and I were bored so I thought it would be fun to paint pictures :) This is my picture of the ideal Arizona sunset. You just don't see these kinds of colors in Utah.
This is sir Benjamin and I the night before I left!!! He worked a lot while I was home but we still hung out a ton. We saw Seven Pounds which I LOVED, and the Curious Case of Benjamin Button which I hated. We went shopping, he brought me Einsteins in bed etc. I'll see him in a couple weeks for his mission farewell!!!!!!!!

It was also Nicole's Birthday on Tuesday. Some of us went out to dinner to celebrate, and later that night I woke her up out of my bed to sing happy birthday to her and give her the cake Callie got. It was SO great. Note the tiara :)Nicole is just one of the coolest people I know. It seems like we would have absolutely NOTHING in common, but we have become such good friends. I have really enjoyed living with her this semester and I will miss her SO much next semester, even though I'll still see her a lot!! She and Emily Woods are moving into a place together.
This Sunday we went to the State Hospital for church, and for the first time all six of us roommates got ready together. We had to take a picture :)
And now I must bid you farewell, because I need to catch my flight home :)

If you aren't happy with your life, decide what needs to be changed and do it. What makes one person happy may not be right for another person. You can't fit a round peg in a square hole; you shouldn't force yourself into roles for which you are not suited.
The End. Time for Finals week.

Does anyone remember how miserable last year was? Becca?? I know you do.
Lets all enjoy this lovely Christmas season, and to my pleasure, a lack of fluffy white stuff.

All of the roommates and I took dates and we got dressed up and went to Happy Sumo, which in my opinion is the best sushi around here. Maybe the best sushi i've ever had.

In my mocrobiology lab, we talk a lot about mold, microbes, viruses etc. We do a lot of fun experiments, and this week we were able to take a agar plate home and a sterile swab stick to test a surface in our homes. I decided to test our kitchen counter. Basically I swabbed my counter top, smeared it on the agar (it started out CLEAR.) Here is my agar plate, after 4 days of growth. EEEEEEEEWWW
I realized haven't put any pictures up of my apartment... so here they are!
This is my lovely living room, bishop's office chairs and all.
And here is my kitchen
And my bathroom
Last but definitely not least, my front patio that looks like it belongs in Apache Junction... (trash, piles of wood, portable bbq, dead house plant, deflated innertubes, and bikes.)

One of the nights Ben was here we got some acrylic paint and canvas at Walmart. We started off with the baby stuff, just some water color paintings, but the next day we both worked on our first master pieces. These are our attempts and being painters, Ben hasn't quite finished his but they turned out pretty good!
Ben and I in my living room, I put this up cause you can kind of see my living room. Its cute! One of these days I'll get around to posting pictures of the apartment on here.
Andrew and Megan are two of Teddy's really good friends, who I am also friends with. The four of us went to Happy Sumo and ate the BEST SUSHI EVER. Andrew and Megs are so hilarious i love hanging out with them. They were so nice to let us stay there on Saturday since the boys Ben was staying with the other nights were out of town. While at there house, we all took political compass tests and watched funny videos about Sarah Palin on youtube :)
This is my roommate Laci and I about to go up to the temple.
And this is Jacie, Laci and I at the temple.
