Four down... 20 to go!

It's been four months!! This post is kinda late  because his month mark was on Sunday, but better late than never right? Haha I cannot believe how fast time is flying. When people ask me how long he has been gone and I say four month, they are like "Oh, so not that long ago." But in my mind I am like, "Whoa! He has already been gone FOUR MONTHS??!?! It seems like he just left!" Which is a good thing :] My mom just sent off my Christmas package for him like a week ago as well. (My mom did it because I didn't have time) I hope he likes it.... I put in two ties, a leather planner cover, and a bag of miniature reeses. 

I got a letter on Monday, it had been like 3 weeks since my last one. He wrote it on Halloween!! Which means it took like almost a month to get to me. WHY CANADA POSTAL SERVICE WHY?!?! Anyways, in the beginning of the letter he told me that he was sorry that he hadn't kept his promise in a while of writing me every week, so he has a surprise for me and to be prepared. I don't know whether to be excited or scared!! I have no idea what it could be because that is all he said about it! Suspense much?! It was only two pages (the shortest yet) but I loved EVERY WORD. :] 

This past week was crazy. We had this guy named Vincent Brosseau come choreograph for us. Now, this was not your regular dance. We had 7 foot poles that weigh 10 pounds each... and we kinda pole-vault-dance with them. It is called Rippling Souls. Here is the video if you want to see. This is not my group but this is like exactly what we do. The part where they jump up and hold themselves there for like 10-15 seconds, ya I do that part. 


Today is Thanksgiving, and I am gonna get to see my Grandma and Grandpa on my dad's side and my Grandma on my mom's side. (My mom's parents are divorced and we never see my Grandpa. It's been like 6 or 7 years) I am so grateful for my family and everything they do. I would not be the person today if it was not for my family and friends. I am thankful that my missionary has come into my life and am proud that he made the decision to serve a mission. I am thankful that I have him as a best friend and that someday, I will marry him. I am grateful that I have the talents that I do and can share them with others. I am thankful that the Lord has blessed me with such awesome roommates this year who are helping me get through the next 2 years and will be my friends for life. Sometimes I complain, but honestly I love my life and wouldn't trade it for anything.

The Wonderful World of Dance

Today I had the AMAZING opportunity to attend a concert by the Ririe - Woodberry Company. They were AWESOME! Wow the way they moved and the positive and negative space was very interesting. They have some amazing dancers and they are so strong! 

One thing that I liked is that they included the audience in their performance. VERY COOL! haha :] If you have not seen them I highly recommend it :]

Also for those of you in Utah, the Myan in like the Orem-Sandy area CLOSED!!! I am so SAD!!! Last year I had the amazing opportunity of performing Aerial dance there. We were going to go do it again, but now we can't because they have closed. *Sigh* Guess we will have to find some other dream ;]

It's Me Again

I have decided that I am going to try and post more often! It helps me vent a bit and get things off of my mind (usually I would tell my boy but he is not here so I guess a blog will do).

Today has been a crazy but pretty good day. It snowed!! I am not a fan of snow :/ sorry for those of you who are. But it is wet, cold, and if it snows it means that it is to cold to rain! STUPID! 

Well, me and my roommate jess have been EXTREMELY hyper tonight! Holy crap ha. We have been laughing non stop and even drew my mish a picture on paint ;] One of my other roommates was doing one of those "relaxing" music thingys. You know the ones that say "nothing matters. Just relax.... Now you are in a field.." blah blah blah. (ya know, the ones that don't really work) Anyways, me and jess go into the living room and 3 of my roommates just start getting mad because we are being to loud. SERIOUSLY?! Do you know how many times in the morning while I was SLEEPING you guys were SCREAMING YOUR HEADS OFF?! Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you want me to be quiet while you are "relaxing", you better freakin be quiet when I am. UGH! It frustrates me. If my boy were here, he would know exactly what to say to me. He always had this way about him that he knew the perfect thing that would make me feel better... The next 21 months better go by FAST. 

On a good note, I got my temple recommend so that I can do baptisms on Thursday. SUPER EXCITED! :]
