Time for an update...

Ok, so I warned everyone that I would be really bad at this whole blog thing, and now it's been proven.  So since it's been forever, I'll just post a few pictures of things that have been happening lately.

We'll start with the most recent (and best) event:

I was in the kitchen last night about to make crepes for our little roommate Christmas party when Kaeley walks in with a letter addressed to me and Jacki.  I was excited enough to be getting a letter, but little did I know...  I assumed that it was from a missionary since they're the only ones who write letters, and Jacki and I have a few mutual missionary friends, so it made sense.  Little did i know...  There's no return address, but I didn't think much about it.  I open the envelope and pull out a paper with magazine clippings spelling out the letter.  As I open the paper, $2o0 cash falls onto the floor... What the heck!?  The letter read: "Jacki Ashley:  Don't spend on anything but shoes for track" and that was about it.  No name, no return address, no nothing.  Best day ever?  I think so.

Next.  Christmas is coming and we didn't have any decorations in our house.  Some of our friends at "The Rex" (a house of guys we're friends with) offered to take us out to get a christmas tree!  We all should have been studying or something I'm sure, but who could turn that down?  Here are the pictures:

So I guess a lot else has happened (halloween etc) but those weren't anything special.  Pretty much I've just been livin' it up with my roommates every day... So there's my update.  Have a great day!

Girl Camping

So we were bored this weekend and wanted to go camping.  Everyone was busy doing "true T-Bird" night and other boring stuff, so we couldn't get any guys to come with us.  We were a little nervous to go by ourselves so I gave my brother a call... He was in New York for cross country, but he was nice enough to let me borrow his .22 for the night.  Oh, and I brought along the taser my dad gave me last year just for some extra comfort... thanks dad :)  So Me, Kaeley, Jacki and Robyn all drove out to three peaks, built a fire, and slept in the dirt... well, me and Jacki did at least. Robyn and Kaeley ended up in the car.  It was quite the adventurous night.. we were all just chillin around the fire when someone decided it would be funny to throw fire crackers and shoot roman candles at us, ha ha.  We chased them down for a little while but then let them go.  Whoever it was was just afraid of us cause they didn't come back.  Maybe it was cause they saw the gun across my lap and figured they better not mess with these girls... or maybe it was something else.  Who knows ;)  Either way, it was a great night. 

Saturday morning there was a parade for homecoming week.  Me and Jacki were supposed to walk in it with the track team, but then we got a better offer.  The girl doing the Disney "float" needed a few more girls to dress up as disney characters... well duh, we did that instead.  I was Wendy from peter pan and Jacki was Jasmine.  Robyn got the lucky part of the evil queen on snow white, ha ha, she was perfect!  The little kids all LOVED us and came to see the princesses before the parade stared.  One of them saw Robyn and I swear she was about to cry.  She covered her eyes and went back over by the princesses.  It was the funniest thing.

Back to the real world

So, I feel left out since I was the only kid in my family without a blog... and so I fall into the trend as well.  Thanks a lot.  ;)  

After spending the last few months in Paradise laying out at the beach, surfing, camping, hiking, etc etc, I've returned back to the real world.  School started two weeks ago and it's been interesting getting back into the swing of things.  I still live in the little corner house, but a few of my roommates have changed.  Jacki, Jenessa, and Monica are still here, but now Kaeley, Robyn and Jacki Platt have moved in with us as well.  Back to seven girls in a little tiny house... It's been a blast though.  We've already gone back down to Sand Hollow a few times.   It's the only way we can bear being away from the beaches of Hawaii we were so used to, ha ha.  Jenessa and I went with my mom, Heidi, Parker, Danny and Karl down to Zion this weekend to do Mystery canyon.  We all had a good time and I got a little taste of what I missed this summer.  

That's about all that's been going on around here.. Sorry in advance if I don't update this much!
