As for my parents, I thought it would be fitting to give them an electric toothbrush :)

So being the person I am, I jumped at the opportunity to stay by myself in these lovely strangers home. They have the two cutest little girls who I played with and did their hair. I slept oh-so-comfortably there which I don't think I would have done in the airport.
Once at the airport, I sat next to a black guy in his mid 20's. I started crocheting a beanie for Kodi, and noticed that he was staring at the needle and yarn. Once we boarded the plane, we started to chat a little bit, and I asked if he wanted to learn how to crochet. So I taught him.
Can you picture that? Me, a black football coach in his late 20's, crocheting together??
I love the simple pleasures I get in meeting strangers.

Today was my last day of clinic until January, so I "celebrated" by painting my nails while studying. (I can't have painted nails in clinic. I'm not sure I even like painted nails, I just don't like being told what not to do).
Walked in my room today and let out a "Hah!" when i realized there were 5 different pairs of boots out on my floor, but only the right boot?
I decided I wanted to crochet a scarf for Ben for his birthday/Christmas/-40' weather, even though learned to crochet about 6 years ago one day and hadn't touched it since. It was an adventure, and is getting mailed tomorrow (I know, late).
I was told by a complete stranger at the BYU library that I looked like I was from Gilbert. "How did you know?" I asked. "You're clothes gave it away" said he. I went to the bathroom to document, and I don't get it... How am I a "Gilbert girl"?

On Saturday, a friend of mine threw a ball. She sent out invitations a month ago and it was such a classy affair haha. Basically we all just got dressed up, went to Park City, and danced the night away :)

Well things have changed my friend!!! This morning I woke up at my friends' house and looked out the window to find about 8 inches of snow. Honestly, it's beautiful! I gathered my things and went outside, busted out my snow brush/scraper to clean off my car. I was feeling ambitious so I did a couple other cars too. Yeah, my hands were freezing because I didn't have gloves, but I guess I'm ready for winter.
Haha I had just woken up, and I was trying to smile normal...
Love you all

Yes, it is MUCH harder this way and I don't know why I insist on doing it every year.
This year was particularly difficult, because I'm broke as a joke. I reluctantly paid my tithing on Sunday at my tithing settlement appointment.
Now here is where it gets interesting. I was nervous about where I would come up with money I needed before I would get my next paycheck, and the Lord blessed me.
Do you guys remember when I did Junior Miss? A completely embarrassing scholarship pageant that takes place your senior year of high school? Well, my friends, when I competed in this pageant, I won a scholarship in the Academic portion. I procrastinated submitting my winning certificate, and completely forgot to obtain the money I won. About a year later, I remembered and tried to get the money. Didn't happen.
Well two and a half years later, what do you know but Junior Miss sent me a check in the mail. Two days after I had paid my tithing. Wow.
Some experiences are simply undeniable. I know God lives.
