Sad news!

So I finally made it to my parents house for the first time in weeks and found some very sad news! My brother, who just got home from SOI training in the Marines has received orders ti go to Iraq!!! He leaves in January and will be gone at least 8 months. Guess I have to spend as much time with him now while I can!

The once cute little angel

Has now grown into a man that goes to War! Yikes!

School is over, time to PLAY!!

So finals officially ended for me at 130 pm on Thursday, and boy did it feel amazing! It has only been two days and I am wondering what it is that I am supposed to do with all of this freedom. Well here is a glimpse of just what I have been doing....... :)

EFY Reunion party of the best team ever!

Note to self, dont try to use an office chair as a snowboard in a parking lot, bad things can happen. Poor Andrew! But no worries I nursed him back to health!

After our parking lot adventures

Temple Square with lots of lights

Being with fun friends!

The things we do to make ourselves feel better! Me and my roommates April and Laurel decided since it had been a long trying week we should do masks and watch a good chick flick!

Really that face is harder to make than it looks!

The girls being silly!

It has been a great start to a nice holiday season, great friends, fun times and memories to last a lifetime! What more could a girl ask for????

Well I have survived another week. It hasn't been too bad. Classes ended and all projects, papers, and assignments were due. Now it is onto dreaded finals..... YUCK! But it shouldnt be too bad, at least I dont think so. I just hope that I have studied that right things.
So about my last post........ the guy was interesting. Turns out it was not him that played that joke on me, it was his no so ex wife..... I know that just makes things so much more complicated, and trust me it is, so I wont go into detail. If you care to know please feel free to ask. But I am moving on, there is way too much drama there. Instead I found a guy is the complete opposite. He is drama free and so sweet! We have only been together for about a week but it feels like so much longer, maybe because we have been emailing and what not since September. Anywho, he is fabulous and I must be doing something right because he comes all the way from Park City to see me! Even in the snowy weather. So I consider myself one lucky girl. I will keep you posted on how things work with that. ;)
Well as most of you know, three of my four brothers are in the Marines, and lately it has really hit home how they could be called to war anytime. The youngest of the three is almost done with his specialty training and gets to come home in a week. I cant tell you how excited I am. It makes me sad whenever I hear about those who have loved ones in the military that will not be home for Christmas. I was listening to the radio last night and heard the cutest song sung by a little girl about how her only Christmas wish was to have her dad come home for Christmas. He has been deployed to go fight and all that she wanted was to make her and her mom happy and asked Santa to bring him home. I am not going to lie I almost cried. It was soooo cute! I am trying to find the title and such so I can post it, if anyones knows that I am talking about please let me know, I think it was a bit of a country song....
I went to see a movie last night and one of the previews touched me as well. It is a music video done by 3 doors down talking about the National Guard and serving our country. Its not the Marines but it still means something to me! Here it is, I hope you like it as much as I did.

Oh the nerve of a Scum Bag

I have never, ever, felt so humiliated in my life!!!! To trust a complete stranger with so much, spill your life and soul, have the time of your life, and then, you find out it was all fake. He has issues, he has been filling you full of lies since the second he opened his mouth. And to think that I believed him???? That I thought he was being sincere and honest and really was hurting. The only reason he was doing this, to see how far he could get with me! Are you kidding me?!?!?!??1 Who has that kind of nerve? You must be so incredibly shallow that you dont even know where to begin to get help. And people wonder why I dont like dating, prime example right here. Thanks alot scum of the earth, looks like you ruined it for yet another person. Good luck burning down under, I hope it hurts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its Coming!!!

Well folks it is here, the dreaded finals!!! Yikes! Are you ready? Am I ready? I have a feeling that it is going to be a long next couple of weeks. But once its over, there is at least two weeks of semi freedom. I am not gonna lie, I am looking forward to only having to work, no assignments, no nagging teachers, just work. I know, not totally appealing but hey, its better than some.
With finals, other good things become of it, one of my fabulous friends gets to come home for a MONTH after working so hard in law school. I am quite excited for that. I have been in need of a Dan hug for awhile!

It also means that I get to spend some good quality time with family and have moments like these:

I cant tell you how much I love Christmas and all of the fun things that come with it. It is my goal to take lots of pics and document this holiday, because after all, this is the last time my family will be together for awhile. Brothers going to training and missions and who knows what else! Stay tuned for my family holiday fun! :)
