Holla Holla White Wata!!!!!

So, a couple of weeks before school started, my good good friend, Lena, invited to go to Buena Vista, Colorado for the weekend. it was fabulous. i met some really fun and interesting people from Lena's college, Redlands. we went hiking, white water rafting and singing random songs by the camp fire. ah! good times. i hope we do it again next year!!! HOLLA!

she don't believe in shooting staaaars

So, in Utah. We celebrate pioneer day which is when the mormon pioneers came through emigration canyon (where i grew up as a child) and settled down in the place that is now called salt lake city, utah. it's one of the funnest holidays. I mean, 4th of july is my favorite holiday, but what happens after the 4th of july? well, if you live in other states, nothing. BUT pioneer day is, like, TWO weeks after the 4th. basically it's the 4th of july's half brother: you eat a lot of food and there are fireworks going off every half hour through out the salt lake valley. it's amazing and kind of scary if you think about it, because it's prolly super easy to just kill someone with a shot gun and know one would think it was murder because of the explosions going on....just think about it ok? Anyways, the 24th was wonderful and i got to hang out with some amazing people. yayayayaya!

don't call me junior 'cause i'm 21

so, last friday was my 21st birthday. it was wonderful. usually, i don't really like my birthday, but you only turn 21 once eh? all morning i spent trying to get my driver's license. no such luck (stupid Utah laws). then i went to lunch with my grandparents and my mother. it was so much fun and i'm so grateful because they bought me a beautiful birthday dress that i will treasure forever. my sister semi-did my make up. i took a nap. and then went to my fabulous birthday party hosted by my friend, Albert. it was a wonderful birthday. i love my family. love my friends. and love the days where we all come together and create memories.
oh wow this is super cheese.
