Party time

Jamie's birthday was the best day I've had in so long. I took work off and spent the day with my favorite people!

After our lovely breakfast, we went to Color Me Mine and made some pieces of art!

Then a bunch of the girls got together and went to dinner at Malawi's Pizza @Riverwoods. It was delish, and I love these cuties.

At dinner we gave Jamie her Nike Free's :) She almost cried.

After din din we had a dessert party at our house. Thanks to everyone who came and made it such a fun day and a great birthday for Jamerz!!

Jamie turns 21!!

Jamie Patterson turned 21 this morning. Wahooo! Words cannot describe how much I love this girl. We spend every second of our free time together. Some may say we are "dating". Believe whatever you'd like to :) Haha but really, Jamie is the greatest and here's why:

We met a zillion years ago and we are still such great friends. This was in high school, one of our first pictures together in the cafeteria room!

Yesterday, I told her I would pay her to clean my room [mostly joking] and I came home to 0 mess! She rarely gets frustrated at me for being a slob.

She is one of the FUNNIEST people ever. And on top of that, she thinks I'm funny. This never happens.

She is the best gym buddy ever and I think I would weigh 500 lbs if we didn't work out together

We have ALL of the same clothes, and we love to be twins.

She is refreshingly blunt! What you see is what you get with Jamie and I LOVE it.

She has the best taste in music, and always keeps me up to date with it. [@Jonsi concert]

Jamie I am so grateful for you and for our friendship. You are such a blessing to me! I'm so happy that living together brings us even closer. XOXO

Enough of that mushy stuff, come in the kitchen Jamie. I made you breakfast :)

Ahead of the game

This year, I didn't make any new years resolutions.
Subsequently, I didn't break any new years resolutions.
Which means I'm ahead of the game.
I think I'm onto something!

Please note the pictures of my dad that snuck into the background of this picture. He is such a babe at age 21!

I stayed awake in class

For the first time EVER during dental hygiene school, I stayed awake the entire day. Here's what finally kept me conscious.

First of all, just laughing at all of the girls in our class. For real Megan? Bundling up for Narnia weather in the classroom?

Having the attention span of a 9 year old so our professor has to let us play games to keep our interest. Today we played Family Feud, Plinko, picking prizes from "The Box", and rolling dice for tickets. Of course, I got 9 tickets just for staying awake today :)

Drinking diet coke at lunch, AND during class. Why didn't I think of this before? It's genius!

Bringing candy, specifically Sour Patch Kids.

and watching videos like this on the back row, while trying to suppress my laughter. School should be like this EVERY day!

Making Panda proud. Growing up, Mother dear always made pazookies, or "scookies" for my friends when they came over. I think that's the main reason people hung out at my house in high school.

Well be proud! Last night was pazookie night at our house :)

Jamie and I win most awkward picture award. As usual. What can I say, we love each other :)

What did YOU eat for dinner?

Bet it wasn't Diet coke from RLOB, Skittles, and mozzarella sticks from Sonic. At midnight. Bahahah.


I say what I want.

Potluck Mondays

With only 3 months left of school, things are getting ker-azy at UCDH. We're so close, but yet SO far.

Last week some of the girls and I were talking about this semester, and how it is going to be hell-ish, and then something happened. We all got super amped about "Potluck Mondays"! Seriously though, I don't know what got into us but we were all yelling and so excited. Nothing makes a class of 60 girls more happy then junk food. I have pictures to prove it.

Our first weekly potluck Monday:

The hygienist becomes the patient...

We DEMOLISHED 15 pizzas, 4 plates of cookies, a better-than-sex cake, Darci's famous salsa, and so much more delicious food. I don't know if I would have gotten through this day without our potluck.

This chick

Have I mentioned that Becca moved to Utah? Reunited and it feels so good.

She is the apple of my eye. I can't wait for her to fall in love with BYU like I did so many years ago.

Say no to pancho

Never should have bought that dang pancho. I can't bring myself to wear anything else. It's been going on all week.

Does anyone else have a go-to item of clothing that you always wear and convince yourself "it's okay"?

The grapefruit diet

If it didn't hurt my tongue so bad, I think I would eat nothing but grapefruit all day every day.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, I hate when people make new years resolutions to lose weight that we all know they won't keep, so they hit up the gym the whole month of January and take my machines, and fill up my classes.

My question is, where were you February through December last year? Answer: sitting on your butt at home while I was at the gym on my stair stepper.

It's not like I can just settle and use any old machine. I like the stair stepper 4th in, because it can hold my big water bottle, the headphones get a clear sound to channel 5 when Ellen and Biggest Loser is on, and it has a "Fat Burner Plus" setting.

Twenty ten

This year has been really good to me.

Here are a few of my favorite memories :)

Suns vs. Jazz games, adventures in Salt Lake with the girls, doing stupid things for school with Megs

Vegas with the girls, visiting Mesa and seeing everyone at Sweetcakes, the Festival of Colors, and my 21st birthday

Going to the Backstreet Boys concert with Teddy, 7 peaks and summer adventures with Megan, the Mona rope swing, and the best 4th of July weekend I've ever had sleeping on the lawn

Being a bridesmaid for 4 of my amazing friends. Ashley's wedding in March, Lexi's wedding in August, Lindsey's wedding in September, and Joslyn's wedding just two weeks ago.

And all of the fun adventures I got to go on, and finding how much I LOVE hiking :)

I love that I've learned not to be so responsible and just take trips without planning at all. It makes life much more interesting.

2010 brought me my niece Veda who is just the cutest most sleepy baby in the world.
And this guy is basically my favorite part of going home to visit. He has gotten so big this year!

2010 was full of way too much school and work, but looking back I realize how much has happened and changed this year. I've been able to do so many fun things with people I love and that's all that matters!
