Holey moley!

Wow! That's about all I can say right now. I've been writing lists of everything that needs to get done before I leave for Philmont and can I just say that I am feeling just a little bit overwhelmed?

We went wedding shopping today and found quite a few things that I've been needing, so that cuts down on my lists, which is a very good thing, but it really hardly made a dent. My biggest problem right now is that I have no way of contacting my fiance. I have some questions that need to be answered by him, but he hasn't answered my emails. It's not a big deal, most of these questions can wait for awhile, but when i get overwhelmed I usually stress about getting everything done EXACTLY AT THAT MOMENT so that I don't forget. I need to just take a breather. I'm so happy that he's in the Middle East and I hope that he's having the time of his life (oh and I hope that he's not trying my cell because it's out of money at the moment)! I'm slightly jealous of him, as I would love to be seeing all those amazing sites also, but I'll just have to be satisfied with pictures (which I will be, don't anybody worry).

I visited my former seminary teachers today. It was so much fun! One of them had bet me that I would be married after my first year at BYU and I had said no way! Well, they both took the chance to rub it in my face that I was wrong. We had a great time laughing and talking about what's in store for my future with Alan.

Tonight I played with my hair and veil, and also experimented with makeup. What fun I had being a total girl! I will post pictures as soon as I get them from my mom's camera (don't worry, I don't have my dress on, so Alan, sorry, you still have to wait ;) ). So tonight was extremely fun! I love playing with hair and makeup, though looking at me on a day to day basis you might not believe me. But I do on special occasions, like to dress up and make myself look absolutely gorgeous, and let me tell you that at my wedding I will (not to brag of course, lol)!

So all in all, it's tough trying to sort out all this wedding stuff, but I am trying to keep myself above waters and have a wonderful time!

Home again home again jiggity jig!

Well I'm home from my first year of college. It's so crazy to think how fast the past 8 months has flown by! It seems like just yesterday I was sitting where I am now (in my bedroom) playing around on my new computer, surrounded by boxes packing to go to Provo. Now I'm sitting on my bed, playing on my computer, surrounded by boxes packing EVERYTHING that I own so that when I come back from Philmont I can move back down to Provo, into married housing this time. Crazy how time flies and how situations change!

So Alan is now in Egypt. I haven't heard anything from him since he arrived in Austria for a layover. He has a blog that he will be writing on during his summer in Jordan. Here's the link to it in case any of my readers are curious as to what he is up to http://alanibnmichaelibnbillibnkurt.blogspot.com/

So, as I said above, I'm packing right now. I don't really mind packing to tell the truth. It gives me a chance to reminisce and reflect over past experiences. Another reason why I like to pack is because it gives me a chance to rid myself of unwanted or unneeded items. Ask anyone that knows me, especially my mother or Alan, and they will tell you of my lack of sentimentality. I will throw anything away and feel remorse for only about 5 minutes. In my opinion it stems from my wanting to forget things in my past and so I throw away anything that reminds me of that time. But, also, I really have no sentimentality. If something doesn't enrich my life it gets tossed, or if it doesn't have major memories attached, it gets tossed. In summary, I am definitely NOT a pack rat (PS Kari if you read this, you're more than welcome to come get your dresses anytime that you want, I won't throw them away, don't worry, lol).

Yesterday I left Provo. It was hard saying goodbye to all of my roommates except for Krista. Krista and I live in the same town so we're planning on hanging out before I have to go to Philmont. All of us Penrose 80 girls have gotten so close throughout the last 8 months. We are now all best friends and it was really hard to say goodbye. But I will see them again in only 4 months, which is actually not that long of a time. I mean that's how long Alan will be gone, and I'll see him before I see my girlies. So basically it was hard, but I know we will all survive and have a wonderful summer. Anyway girls, I LOVE YOU!!

BUT now I'm home and I get to hang out with my best friend Casey. All through, well most of it, high school Casey and I were stuck at the hip, especially during senior year. I missed her a lot last summer and this school year. She was my other half and I miss her.

Well my parents are calling for me to go upstairs for some lunch, so I'm off!

Last of them all!

So this is it, one more final and then my freshman year will be OVER!! Yahoo!! Sadly, I'm counting the exact number of points I need in order to get a B in the class. Pathetic I know, but I really am sick of school and all this jazz.

Yesterday I was showing Somers all my pictures of Philmont and telling her all my awesome stories and I'm just ready to go be out in the middle of no where. But I still have a month to go and lots to do in that month.

So Alan leaves in a day and a half and it's slightly sad. I'm super excited for him to be going and I wouldn't have it any other way. The worst part of all of this is that we have to leave Provo at three in the morning on Thursday so that Alan can be at the airport at four so that he can leave at six. Oh blah! But I think that we're going to pull an all-nighter, so that might be pretty fun.

Anyway, it's back to my test so I'm off!

It's more than past time for another post . . .

Well lots has been happening in the past month or so since I last wrote. But I can basically sum it up in one phrase, sick of school.

I changed my major and so now I'm going for a History BA. For a class I planned out my whole school career and I am really excited for a lot of the classes that are included in the history major.

Okay, well I'm really going to change the subject of this post. School ends in three days which is so crazy! I can't believe that my freshman year of college is now over. Time has gone so fast and I have learned so much. So now we'll go over the highlights of the past year:

1. Getting engaged. Of course this is at the top of the list, what's better than falling in love? Absolutely NOTHING!! :D

2. Summering at Philmont. Best job that I've ever had. I'm so glad that I took the risk and went out there. I learned a lot about myself, living on my own, and what I really want out of life. It also helped me to simplify my life and to realize what is truly important to me. Plus, Alan wrote me letters all summer, which is DEFINITELY NOT a bad thing. :)

3. BYU. I've had so much fun this year! I love BYU, the atmosphere here is amazing, I love the honor code, and I love the whole spiritual aspect of this school.

4. In conjunction with number three, MY ROOMMATES! These are my best friends. I have grown to love these girls so much. They have helped me through so many things this semester and we have had SO much fun being wild and crazy together.

So there are probably some more highlights but I can't think of any at this time so I'll just have to write something more later.
