Saturday Morning in Bed

As most of my posts have been written, I'm once again sitting in bed on a beautiful Saturday morning. From my little window I can see the sun shining brightly out there in the big, wide world.

So things to talk about: 1. I made a decision about this summer. 2. Planning a wedding. 3. School and decisions with that.

Okay, so first up, decisions for this summer. Alan, my parents and I all had lengthy discussions about what would be the best thing for me. My parents would have paid for school this summer, which would have been awesome, but the major question was, did I really want to go to school a year round? Alan was the one who first said that I desperately need a break, a relaxation before hitting life head on, full steam ahead. Mom totally agreed with Alan in that I do need a break. They also both told me that I need to live my life with no regrets and they don't want me to regret not going to Philmont when I had the opportunity. So all in all, I'm going back this year and it will be super awesome!!!

2. Planning a wedding. Man alive! Last night I went through all I need to get done before I leave and holy wow! There's so much to do! I know that Mom and Carol Lee will be able to finish all the details, after I've done what I could before I leave. Whew, I'd better get on that!

3.School decisions. Krista and I were talking the other night about majors and what to do with our education. I have decided that I really am going to major in history. I was looking at a list of classes and all seem so very interesting. So I think that I've found my niche.

Lots of decisions this week, phew! Haha! Well that's what I get for growing up. But I love it, I really do. Especially since it means I get to marry the love of my life.

Beautiful Day and Boding Thoughts

Oh my gosh! Has anyone looked outside today!? It's absolutely gorgeous! It's 44 degrees, the sun is shining and most of the snow is gone. Craziness is what this is. It's only February 20. I suspect that the weather's going to turn nasty again for the first half of March and then voila, beautiful again!

This is a little odd, but I love the smell of spring. It's a smell that originates from the moldy grass and leaves that have been sitting under the snow all winter. Sounds pretty gross right? Wrong! It's a wonderful smell, that makes me think of newness and warmth and summertime!

Speaking of summertime, I have the biggest dilemma right now. I was accepted again at Philmont. I'm supposed to work at Head of Dean, which is one of the prettiest spots in Philmont I think. Here are some pictures from the hike that leads to HoD from the Maxwell turnaround.





So my big dilemma now is: should I go back to Philmont, make some money and have a wonderful time; or should I stay here, get 17 credits this summer (graciously paid for by my parents, thank you, thank you, thank you!!) and earn just a little money and work my tail end off to get my degree faster.

Choices, choices, choices! Bah! Well that's what I get for growing up.

Okay, One More Thing

So I found this extremely weird, that my fiance would fill something like this out, since high school wasn't his favorite memory. So in lieu of him doing it, I felt like I should . . . okay, I'm just super bored because it's a day off and I don't want to do homework yet, so I'm wasting time.


1. Did you date someone from your school?
Yep.

2. Did you marry someone from your high school?
Nope, I'm definitely not going to, thank goodness.

3. Did you carpool to school?
I should have walked,I lived close enough, but my best friend Casey gave me a ride almost everyday.

4. What kind of car did you have?
Mostly a '91 Mitsubishi Gallant and a '91 GMC Sierra.

5. What kind of car do you have now?
I don't have one personally yet, but in August I will have a 2005 Taurus.

6. It's Friday night...where are you now?
Hanging out with Alan.

7. It's Friday night...where were you then?
At a party at Andrew's or Krista's or even my place.

8. What kind of job did you have in high school?
I had a paper route for awhile, worked at Wendy's for 8 months, my main job was as an after school custodian.

9. What kind of job do you do now?
Currently unemployed *cough* lazy woman *cough*

10. Were you a party animal?
Well yes and no. Yes I went to a lot of parties and I was always out with friends, but it was always the Mormon parties, so no drinking, drugs or anything like that.

11. Were you considered a flirt?
By those who knew me.

12. Were you in band, choir, sports or cheerleading?
Nope, I did no extra-curricular activities, what a loser huh?

13. Were you a nerd?
Oh yeah! Super smart, with super good grades (accomplished because I was too much of a sissy to take AP classes, I totally wimped out).

14. Did you get suspended or expelled?
Nope, and I have sluffed class, many times. Ask me about it sometime Alan, I think you'll get a kick out of some of my stories.

15. Can you sing the fight song?
Not at all. I never knew our fight song, lots of people didn't. The football team and the cheerleaders were like the only ones who did.

16. Who was/were your favorite teacher(s)?
All of my history teachers, Baczuk, Wixom, Saunders, and Mrs. Rahl my English teacher.

17. Where did you sit during lunch?
In the hall where my locker was, or at home.

18. What was your school's full name?
Skyline High School

19. When did you graduate?
2008

20. What was your school mascot?
Grizzlies

21. If you could go back and do it again, would you?
Oh gosh, no!!

22. Did you have fun at Prom?
It was alright, not my favorite dance by far.

23. Do you still talk to the person you went to Prom with?
Not in a long time, but we're still friends, I think.

24. Are you planning on going to your next reunion?
I don't know. It will be my first, but I don't know if I want to.

25. Do you still talk to people from school?
Yeah, I'm rooming with one of my best friends from high school. Sadly I don't keep in constant contact with my best friend Casey. I should definitely email her more often. I love you Casey!!

Okay, so now that I've wasted time on this, I really have to start my homework, blah!

Uh Huh
