Oh Goodness, get ready everyone. Today, February 27th, is Becca's 20th birthday and Teddy's 22nd birthday.

Thank you God for giving me two of the greatest people ever on the SAME day! (well two years apart).

I am SO sad I am missing the birthday bashes this weekend. (bash plural, not to be confused with Bashas the grocery store). This is the first time I will ever miss Becca's birthday in 20 years. Sad day.

So lets pay them both a tribute! Age comes before beauty so we'll start with Teddy. (Teddy I think you're beautiful too, it's just a saying).

Teddy Nixon is:
SOOOOO weird and unique
Funny (mom says she's funnier than me)
A brat to people she doesn't like (and me when she's stressed, but she always says sorry)
Really good at writing
Awful at piano and math (mom says these are MY good traits)
Such a good friend to those who deserve her friendship
A good listener and problem solver

Here are some of the favorite sister pictures:

Becca Stark is:
Hilarious. Funniest girl I know.
A potty mouth (along with myself)
A heart breaker
A man hater (haha I dont know it just seemed to flow)
A punk to EVERYONE, including me, and I wouldnt have it any other way.
A softy (only a few close friends see it)
A musical librian

These are two of the most important people in my life. I love them both SO much and I'm sad I'm here in Ewtah instead of celebrating with them

Lindsey Barney

Today is Lindsey Barney's 19th birthday!
(The 23rd, yesterday was. I'm just slow at finishing posts. But i did start this on her birthday)

Wahooo. So I was taking flowers to Lindsey while she was at school today. I was bringing them in a vase, which was full of water. As I was going through a green light, some IDIOT pulled out in front of me to turn right on red. I slammed on my brakes SO hard and I thought I hit him but I didn't luckily. However, I did spill half of the water from the vase on my lap. Not to mention I thought I was going to DIE.
Here are some of my favorite Lindsey memories:
New York City with our choir for ten days!

My senior prom

When she and the girls threw me a surprise party for my 18th birthday

California trip, staying in a 1.5 star hotel

And trips to the Ranch!

Valentine's Weekend in Arizona

Eyelash shadows in my favorite Arizona park

So I went home to Arizona this weekend. It was an adventure to say the least. Teddy's boyfriend Matt drove me down there, and I love him for it. Teddy surprised us by going brunette, she looks like she belongs in the family now haha.

I got to spend every night with Becca, I love her. We had a romantic Valentines evening together.

Other than hangin out with Becca, I didn't do much. After being stood up by a friend, I relaxed and wrote in my journal in my favorite park in Mesa. I worked on a story I'm writing for a class.

Sunday was nice; some of the family got together for dinner. My mom was at the cabin unfortunately, and Lindsey was tired from a weekend in snowflake but everyone else came including Rob, Becca and the grandparents.

Jesus says love every one, yes your roommates too

Today has proved to be an interesting day. Between 5 girls living together, of course there will be some disagreements. I, being the person I am, am so privileged to hear everyone's sides of the stories. I get to sit back and read forwarded texts from one roommate to another, listening to one side of the story and the other two sides etc. Yes I saw some harsh words thrown, and some accusations made, and some lies told, but at the end of the day I love my roommates for what it's worth.

Reasons I love Amber:
She takes adventures with me.
We stay up giggling with each other in the wee hours of the night.
She puts up with my mess, and I put up with hers.
She has a very mischievous side that not many other people see.
She has a mischievous fiance who I LOVE.

Reasons I love Laci:
She never fails to be excited when she sees me.
She feels comfortable enough to talk to me about her feelings.
She is from Texas (oh wait that's a bad thing)
She cleans the kitchen.
She liked me even when no one else did last year.

Reasons I love Jacie:
She is funny, and makes me laugh.
She has a rad boyfriend who also makes me laugh.
She and I have a lot in common, specially when it comes to boys.
She eats whatever the crap she wants and isn't obese
She lets me yell at her when she spits in the sink
She always cleans George so nicely when she uses him

Reasons I love Callie:
She is loud, and it is hilarious.
Never ever a dull moment.
She doesn't have a boyfriend so we hang a lot
She always tells me I am pretty and should be famous
She always says "if i buy this will you eat some of it"
She is never hesitant to do a favor for me

So let's all forgive and forget and love each other again okay? Okay.

Wish me luck... really

So I'm about to go take my first physiology exam... I've been studying all day and I came home to grab some food and stuff. I'm really dreading it because I haven't gotten very involved in this class yet.

I got a letter from Elder Jared Hardy today! It was good to hear from him, it's been a while (my fault not his). He is now in Puerto Rico and he's loving it. He chastized me for not going to church(which is funny because I HAVE been going to church) and then he reminded my how much he loves me, but that Christ loves me more. It is just precious to hear Jar-bear be kind of a grown up! There were probably 5-6 sentences of sincere mature thought in his letter... he's moving on up! Love and miss you jarbear.

Kelsey and I threw a Superbowl party this Sunday over at her place. Don't ask how much of the game I watched... cause it was definitely less than ten minutes. I admit I got kind of into it at the end, even though I'm not a football fan! Here are some pictures of the extravaganza!

The hosteses of the party!

Kelsey eating her famous cheese dip, and Nick Ferin hiding from the camera

My long lost girls from arizona! I probably guilted them into coming... but they did and it was so fun to have them there

Tyler and I... Talking about how I am the least touchy feely person ever (other than Becca)
