On Friday one of my good friends.... Brad got married! I've known Brad since Sophmore year in Highschool he has always been a good friend. All of our friends were always close after highschool. We stayed in touch while we served missions. I got to meet his wife Brianne the day after I got home and I loved her as soon as I met her! They were sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple. It was a freezing day but really pretty! It was the first sealing I have been too ( besides when we were sealed to the kids) and it was beautiful!! I got teary eyed a few times :) Most of our friends were on a cruise, so they couldn't be there, But Amanda and I drove down and it was so nice to have her with me. She hadn't seen Brad in 3 years!! They got to speak spanish to each other :) Anyways amanda and I also made a day of it, and afterwards we stayed in SLC and ate lunch then saw Twlilight for the 2nd time. I really enjoyed playing with amanda she got some from her mission 2 weeks ago. We only wrote each other like once or twice while we were on our missions, but when she came back it was like we'd never been apart! I love Amanda she's still the happy, spiritual person I know! I am so blessed to have such great friends!!

Finals week.... Blah!!!

This semester is my very first time being a "full time" student. I have always taken around 9 credits. This time I took 12. Yes its only one class more, but it made a huge differance! Coming home from the mission, and then going straight into school was weird, and hard! So I took communications, Microbiology,Art 1010, and Nutrition. Last week I had 3 communication tests to take all before friday!( that was because i procrastinated) Then I had a presentation to give about Stem Cells, and i couldn't read my notes as i did it. At first I didn't even know what stem cells were.. i thought maybe something in a plant?? So I had to do tons of research on that. Then I had an outline, and a final essay due! I was a wreck all week long. Seriously i never saw my family. I woke up went to school, studied for 2 hours then I went to work, got off work then studied some more. But i have learned some useful things from this past week. I'll share them with you!
#1 Crocs aren't very thick and tacs on the ground will go through them, and go into your foot. ( true story, it happened while I was walking to class, i sat on the ground and got it out as people stared)
#2 The top floor bathroom in the library really is haunted( i promise) And it looks like the bathroom from Harry Potter the one with Mrytle in it. Oh and it smells!
#3 Studying by a window in not a good idea..It's easy to get distracted and people watch.
#4 The institute library is a good place to take a little nap. But when you do it, make sure you don't lean on your binder because it leaves lines on your face and people will notice and stare.
#5 Oranges are not a good snack while reading because the juice gets all over the library books.
#6 Their are computers on the top floor that noone knows about! Use them!
#7 The movie "Sassy Girl" is lame so don't rent it. ( Sierra and i needed a break on Saturday so we rented it, the whole time we waited for a plot, or purpose and never found one. It was the weirdest movie ever! )
#8 Get lots of sleep.
#9 Sometimes you get so tired from the studying that your emotions get out of wack, and you'll find youself crying when you hear songs like "christmas shoes" or cry when you see the salvation army bell ringers outside of walmart.

Well thats all the important facts I can think of right now!

I still have a test on Wed, Thurs and a final paper die by Wed. I am tired, and I am sick of the libray, and campus. BUT I know i'll make it through! But keep me in your prayers! :)

I love to take pictures!! Especially of myself :)
Anyways here are some random pictures from this past week!
I love my siblings soooo much, I love being home with them!! They're my best friends!So i'll explain some of them the first 2 are of me and mikey, we had a sleepover the other night! Then yesterday i was trying to finish a paper for school, adn Mariah wanted to play, so to get my attention, she took my tabs and wrote "I love you, Haley" and put them on her forehead! She's so funny!! Then last but not least is ana, I have no idea where she got the costume from, but she had fun dancing around in it!

Halloween fun

Halloween morning I woke up and carved pumpkins with the kids. We had a ton of fun! We only had 4, and their were 5 of us so ana and I shared. She was scared to carve them cause she didn't want to mess it up, so she just helped everyone else scoop the seeds out. Mariah and Mikayle were so excited that I let them use their own knives, I think they both picked teh biggest ones. I'm not gonna lie, they scared me a few times. Micheal got all clever and found a box cutting knife, he thought It worked pretty well, and he got done the fastest! I thought our pumkins turned out pretty good, nothing too fancy!
After pumpkins I went to work, it was a normal day, not too busy though. I got off around 7, and went home to change and met Andy is SLC, we went to dinner then am institiute dance it was fun. We went as Masquerade people, so I wore a poofy old prom dress, and we had cool masks. Good times! ( I'm not turning this into a dating blog so, thats all the details ya get)

Halloween costume.

So I haven't dressed up the last few Halloweens.( Last year i was on the mish, so i put on normal clothes and that was my costume) So this year I am excited beccause I can be whatever I want! I was trying to be creative, and cheap and somehow I thought I would be "Wendy" ya know from the fast food place. Wendy and I have a lot in common, we both have red hair, freckles, were short, and we both love frosties and hamburgers. So last week my mom and I stopped into the DI to look for used DVD's, i decided to look in the dress section to see if i could find a blue striped dress. My mom helped me look and after 10 seconds of looking she handed me this blue striped dress,We looked at it and just laughed! I swear it is wendys exact dress! I didn't even try it on, I just bought it! So today i decided to try it on, so here it is. i can't decide if i like it or not. But i think i look a lot like Wendy in it!

Hiking adventure!

So I woke up this morning with a strong desire to go hiking...weird for me I know, I usually hate any sort of exercise! I decided that it probably wasn't safe for me to go alone, you always hear those stories about young girls missing while hiking alone.Or I would probably get bored because i'd have no one to talk to. ( or after reading Ben's blog about midgets I had visions of little men, and woman jumping out of bushes and dragging me into the forrest where they could break open my head with large suckers.) So as soon as the kids got home from school, I informed them that they were going hiking with me if they wanted to or not. Mikey is the only one who absolutely refused to go,( he's much bigger than me, and stronger, so I couldn't force him) but my Dad, Mariah, Ana and Mikayla all agreed to come. So we hiked up the Indian Trail in the Ogden Canyon, we went around 4,so the weather was perfect. Most of the leaves had alreadty fallen, but we were still left with some bright yellow leaves. It was gorgeous!! I just love the fall, the way it smells, the way it looks, the weather and everything else about it! It was a lot of fun. Mikayla seemed to enjoy it the most. she literally "Ran" up the mountain, she loved to run ahead then find a perfect picture spot then would pose and yell for me to take a picture. So I have a million pictures of her, holding sticks, sitting on rocks, touching the stream ect. Mariah also entertained herself by looking for "fossils" she would stop and pick up every rock to check to see if it was special in any way. She did find rock with a fossilized leaf in it. It was big so she threw it against a rock untill it broke off. She carried around the whole time, and she still has it. Ana was not as happy to hike as the rest of us. she complained I think about 91% of the time. she got really bugged when mikayla started singing " Pioneer Children Sang as they walked" You all know that goes on forever and ever! Mikayla thought she was pretty funny but Ana did not. My Dad came and that was a lot of fun. He kept telling us history about the trail and of course added a few jokes, and told ana that the Russian Indians walked this very trail.. ana beleived him at first. :) We also played a joke on Mariah and told her that there was a bug on her shoulder, much to my surprise she "flipped" out and after we told her we were joking she almost burst into tears and wouldn't talk to me for like 3 mintutes! Poor Riah! Ok moving on.. all in all it was a very nice hike. No one fell, no one got lost, and we took some prtty good pictures to document it all. I enjoyed hiking i think the most. I have missed our mountains here, and I have missed Utah weather! I think i'll go on another hike soon, probably waterfall canyon I love that one!
