Turkey in Montana

I love Thanksgiving.


I love spending time with my family. I love Montana. I love cooking. And I especially love eating.So Thanksgiving is a great holiday.

This Thanksgiving I got to share this wonderful holiday with two of my great friends.
Ryan and Mackenzie.

This was Ryan's first adventure in Montana/Wyoming. And let me tell you. It was a BLAST!

After the longest drive of Ryan's life. We arrived in Billings Tuesday night. To the greeting of the twins and homemade chicken noodle soup and cornbread. (THE BEST)

The rest of the week is history. Filled with lots of food. Shopping. Staying up way too late. Snuggling on the couch. Watching movies. Black Friday. Pumpkin Pie. Ugly Sweaters. Band practice. And more food. haha

Saturday Night/Sunday Morning. Mackenzie and I seriously considered whether we would ever get out of my bed. But that would just result into failing college. getting fat. and being really warm. haha. but extremely happy...

Needless to say it was a wonderful weekend. We unfortunately had to return to school. But we made it safely with only minor adventures along the way. And now only 2ish weeks till Christmas Break!

I seriously cannot wait.....

But in the meantime. Enjoy the photo documentation of the wonderful Turkey Break!

Halfway there!

 Delicious. The Burger Dive
Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes. My new fave.

So this past week there was a holiday.
No. It wasn't veteran's day.

Ok. Well yes it was. But I'm talking about another holiday.
So this was kind of a big deal. So much of a big deal we decided to celebrate.
So Cassandra wrote a little poem.

When a star shoots bright, some make a wish,
For a brand new car or maybe even a fish.
Others make their wish, sublime,
When the hands hit eleven at the same time.
This Friday will be extra sweet,
For the eleventh hour, minute, month, day and year will all meet.
Join North SIX for food, friends and fun,
We’ll be starting at nine; hope you can come!

I planed the menu. 
 Yes. I know. Cupcakes. Jr. Mint and Oreo found Here
Yummy crock pot cheese dip. And veggies!

We thought of some games.

And Voila!

Here are some glamour shots of the night.

Hope you had a happy 11.11.11!

Diet Coke.

Do you ever crave anything?
Is there one treat that totally brightens your day?
Do you ever exhale in satisfaction after partaking of this said treat?

I have a secret.

I have that craving.

For Diet Coke.

I don't know what it is that makes it so spectacular.
Actually that's a lie. I do.
It's that crisp sweet taste.
The bubbles going down your throat.
That little buzz from the carbonation and the caffeine. 
That's what makes me wild.

Aren't those cups off the chain? Refillable for $0.95!

Alyssa and I with Harold B. Lee.

This week has been one of those weeks. Lots of homework. Research paper. You know the average life of a college kid. So in my attempts to stay sane and awake I've done nothing to combat my addiction.

So cheers to college!

I blog when I really wanna avoid doing my homework. haha

Life of a College Kid

Hello World.
It's been a long time. I hope the cyber world and my blog followers did not think I was dead. Cause I'm not. I'm alive. And well. But mostly alive. And fantastic.

What have I been up to since my summer adventures in Montana? That's a great question.

What haven't I been up to is a better question.

I'm currently down at the old BYU. Resuming my college education. I switched my major. Just in case you were wondering. No more music. Well that's a lie. I'm now an Elementary Education Major with a Minor in Music.

I also have a sweet new job. I'm a research assistant, for the school of family life. Basically I click buttons and edit heartbeats  It's the best. My office-mates are the bomb.

I live in a house. Well more like a townhouse. Called Chatsworth. It's the best. And it's big. And it's cute.

Meet my roommates. They are great.
From the left. Meredith. Cassandra. Me. Amanda.
These ladies are great. This is us on Halloween. We dressed up like 80's Aerobics Instructors. Pretty boss right? We may be a little crazy. But I love every minute.

Meet my new friends. Yeah we are all 20+ years old. But from these pictures you might not know.

Yeah. So now you've been caught up. Life is just dandy.
