*Eating Brownies in the Snow*

So last night was an eventful night in the red brick house. I was downstairs minding my own business when all of a sudden i smell an overwhelming scent of nastiness!!! I go upstairs and my roommate, Vicki, had put out a big sheet and was spray painting shirts....SPRAY PAINTING IN OUR HOUSE!!!!!!!!!! Oh yeah but she justified herself by opening the windows and doors....when it was 17 degrees outside!!! So our house was stinky and cold! Dallin came over and we made some brownies but it was hard to eat them in the house when it was smelling like poo....we didn't want our brownies to taste like poo so yup, you guessed it. We took our brownie party outside! it was REALLY cold but the brownies were delish! you can see in the background all the snow we have. that was right outside of my house...its cold!

Well today was a GREAT day at school!!!! Just my kind of day! So our school is doing a TON of fund raisers for a lot of different organizations. Our school is trying to raise $30,000 This year and so we are doing a lot of things to help and one of the fund raisers was a fun little thing called "Princess Days" and oh my goodness it was great! i signed up to help because well its just what i love to do. Anyway, my good friend Julianne was in chrage of it and holy cow she did such a WONDERFUL job! No one could have done it better! She is so incredible! Everything she did was so worth it to see the happiest little girls in Rexburg! So we did thier hair and nails and make up and all the fun girly stuff and a lot of them wore their princess outfits. Just imagine the cutest thing ever and that's what it was! it was so great!!! We did that until about 2:30. Then to top it all of and make it an even better day, When i got done i got an appointment and i was like UGH i'm so tired and i looked on the ticket and it said Amanda Taylor and i just lit up and was SO happy!!! I told everyone "Its my cousin!" i was just so excited!!!! She looked beautiful and it was SO much fun to catch up with her! Its SO great for me to have family here to support me! it makes everything so much easier and more enjoyable! So man it was just a fun day! These are a couple of pictures just so you get the idea of how the day was. i'm not in a lot of them but i just want you to see how dang cute it was!

This is a Castle that one of the girls from school made out of cardboard!!! She did such a great job! it was perfect. It was right in the entry so that the girls could walk through it.

Must see Movies

I went to see August Rush with some friends a couple of days ago...well last week or something and it was SO great!!! Everyone should see it i'm not kidding i'm pretty sure that everyone will LOVE it!!!! It's so great and cute and sad and romantic and funny and just really everything and it's such a good wholesom movie! I was really surprised at how good it was! i mean i knew that it would be a good movie just because of the previews and what everyone had been saying about it but it was more than i expected. It kind of throws some people off that Robin Williams is the bad guy but i thought that he did a great job at his character.

Across the Universe. I'm not sure what other people think of it but i thought it was an incredible movie. I thought that it was very artsy and the music of course was so great! i just really liked it a lot. it's what everyone is talking aboiut here so i watched it the day that it came out on video with my friend Dallin and we really enjoyed it! Yes it was a little wierd....well some parts were just really wierd but it just made the movie i think! Anyway...i highly recommend it!!!
