what the hail?!

This weekend was Memorial day weekend. The first things that come to mind from past memorial days include, camping, bbq’s, watching war movies, enjoying being outside in the warm weather…
well none of these happened this weekend.

Mark and I wanted to go to Jackson Hole on Saturday, we love jackson hole! But the weather man said it was suppose to rain/snow all day. So we decided not to go or really plan anything for the weekend. When we woke up Saturday morning, ok it was 11:00 so not really morning, it was beautiful outside! But we knew it was just the Rexburg weather teasing us, it was going to pour all day…NOT! It was a gorgous day! and we didn’t do anything because the weather man lied to us! We later found out that it was 70 degrees in Jackson!
But we had a good weekend anyway. We spent most of it with our friends Chris, Kyle, Alex, and Olivia! Friday night I told Mark that he should spend the night with his friends (listed above) so that he could get a good night’s rest, since Snookie has been waking him up every morning at 5. So we went to hang out with the guys and Olivia was there! We decided that since the boys were having a sleepover, we were going to have a sleep over! We all went to Nelsons and got custard, they messed up mine and Mark’s order, again! Then we went over to Crazy Mikes and me and Olivia rented Charlie St. Cloud and the boys rented Wolverine. Then we split up.
Olivia and I went back to my apartment and watched the movie with snooks. It was such a good movie! I liked it because it wasn’t predictable. We had a great time catching up and talking, I needed some good girl time! Thanks Liv!

The next morning someone texted me about snookie, they wanted to come see her in an hour. So I called Mark and picked him up because I knew I couldn’t do it by myself. They came over and were the perfect family for her. They had 2 little girls who were obsessed with her. I am very happy they were they family to take her. But it broke my heart. I really loved Snookie, she made me laugh and made me so happy. But I wanted to be a good wife and do what was best for Mark. I still tear up when I think about her or when I walk into our empty apartment and she isn’t waiting at the door for me and meows for me to pick her up 😦

We didn’t watch any war movies, which I am shocked about because Mark loves all those movies like the Patriot…but we did watch one of my favorites, Beauty and the Beast! It was nice to cuddle and watch a disney movie during the rain/hail storm. Oh yeah, did I mention it HAILED! What the hail, Rexburg?! It’s June tomorrow, don’t you know that?!

It was a great/heart breaking weekend.


on my mind

I have had a lot on my mind lately, all random, and decided that I need to get them out…
1. I hate snookie! She won’t sleep past 5 am and I’m exhausted! We are giving her away
2. I love snookie! She is so funny and sweet. This morning Mark opened our bedroom door and she came running in and rubbed her cheek on mine, melted my heart.
3. I’m realllllllly tired
4. I love how big our new couch is!
5. I really want to do something fun this weekend, seeing how it’s Memorial day and a 3 day weekend. But it is suppose to snow/rain all weekend so there isn’t much to do.
6. I really miss Melissa & Glenna. I keep thinking back to sophomore year when we were roommates. We all had a love/hate relationship. We are all very loud and outgoing so at times we annoyed each other but they will always have a special place in my heart. They both have helped me through some hard times and partied hard with me during the good times 🙂
7. I feel like lately there is always someone mad at me and I feel like I don’t even know what I did. Am I just a bad friend?
8. I’m homesick. We haven’t been home since Christmas, about 5 months ago, and I know that isn’t a very long time but it seems like everyone is home or has been going home a lot this semester, and I’m jealous.
9. I want to move to a different apartment. Our neighbors above us are so loud and inconsiderate. We don’t care if they are loud during the day, we are too. But after midnight, it is common decency to keep it down so  people can sleep. These neighbors come  home every night around 12 or 12:30 and chase each other through their apartment. He literally slams the toilet seat down. We had to write them a note about a week  ago asking them to be more considerate late at night…it hasn’t helped. I’ve decided they are just rude people.
Then last night after their sherade, our next door neighbors’ little girl screamed at the top of her lungs for an hour! They are nice neighbors but they are about to have their 3rd baby, I don’t know if I can handle hearing someone else’s kids all night! (they just got a mini van too…I think that means it’s time to move out of student housing…)
10. I just want it to be April 2012 RIGHT NOW so we can go to Europe! Mark and I decided that we are going to backpack through Germany, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, France, and Spain! I’m so excited and anxious! I’ve been researching every day since we decided. I can’t wait for my Rick Steves travel books to get here so I can start reading!
Anyways, it’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday! Hopefully work will go fast and I’ll get to go to the farmer’s market finally! Have a wonderful 3 day weekend and Memorial day. Thank you to all who currently do and did in the past serve our country and protect us.

live life to the fullest

My sweet grandpa just commented on my facebook about me graduating. 
It was exactly what I needed and gave me motiviation.
Just thought I would share it with you.
{You and Mark have a great life ahead of you. so Go for it. See Europe while you can and enjoy life to the fullest.}

excuse me

On April 9 I walked across the stage in the BYU-Idaho Hart Auditorium and received my diploma…well actually it was just the book that holds the diploma. They told us we would receive our diplomas in about 4-6 weeks in the mail…well it is officially the 6th week and still no actual diploma! {insert hyperventilation}
What if I didn’t actually graduate?  When I log into the byui website it says “former student” and says I received a 3.6 gpa this last semester and a 3.4 overall gpa {yeah, I had to share that with all of you because I am pretty proud 🙂 }
So, excuse me, but can I please have my diploma already?
