First Time Skiing

As sad as this sounds, I've lived in Utah for most of my life and never stepped on top of a mountain with skies on. Come on, Utah is known for the Greatest Snow on the Earth. You would think that I would be a true Utahn and go skiing or snowboarding faithfully. I don't think so. Last night, my ward put on a Ski Night. So on Sunday I got talked into it by my roommates to go, even if I don't like of the idea of going down a big hill not on a solid surface. We decided to all go and have fun. So yesterday I was getting very nervous and wanted to back out of it. Well, come to find out my roommates Nicole, Karalee and Ashley backed out at the last minute. They said that it was to expensive, even if they bought a 300 dollar ski pass and the tickets were at a discount of 10 dollars, and that it wasn't good snow because it melted the day before and there was just ice or so they heard. So Amanda and I said so what, we are going to have fun and do it. We drove up with Amanda's friends to Beaver and found that in fact there was fresh powder and no ice.

So we rented our ski's and we started. I was truly terrified and let's just say it took along time for me to get down one run. I would go and get scaried that I was going to fast and fall over. Amanda was so great and so patient with me. She kept tell me to take my time and to get up. There was one part where I did go for a long time without falling. That part was pretty cool. It was scary and exciting at the same time. I didn't brake anything, so I guess it was a success for my first time. I kind of want to do it again but take it a little slower this time instead of just going to the very top and going down

A little time on my hands

Ok, I had a little bit of time on my hand this past friday. I finished my list of "To Do" list. I looked at the clock in my room and it was only noon. I thought to myself what else to do. For the past couple of weeks, I wanted to change my room around. So I decided to do it. I got my strong arms out and started moving around my stuff. I moved everything and my roommate, Ashley, just laughed at me because I would walk outside my room with a sour and mad look. It was about three hours after the start of the move, I got every thing organized and I like my new look. What do you think? . . .

A teacher for Mission Prep. . . .

Two weeks ago, I was called as a teacher for Mission Prep. So, today was my first day teaching the class. We have been teaching out of Preach My Gospel. I was in charge of teaching the second lesson which is the Plan of salvation. I was really nervous about teaching. We had four girls including my roommate Amanda and the other Mission Prep teacher, Stan. It was good and I'm grateful that Amanda was in the class because she answered a lot of the questions and the other girls really didn't All that I have to say is that I'm glad that it is over and I don't have to teach for another 2 weeks. Yeah!!!!!!

Pancakes at IHOP

On Saturday morning, three of the Sister from my Mission and me met at IHOP and had breakfast. It was so much fun to see everyone. We talked about school and the mission. We talked about going to the temple with our Mission President. It was so much fun.

Lizzie, Lizzie and more Lizzie

My old Snow roommate, Lizzie Markham , called me on Friday and told me that she was heading up to Logan and wanted to know my schedule for the day. I told her that I was hers all day.
So we started the adventure with a trip to Cafe' Rio. We shared a salad and it was so good. We then came back and headed up to the campus. I was the tour guide even though I had no idea where most stuff where. We decided to go watch a movie called "He just not that into you". It was so good and if you love chick movies you will love it.
After the movie, we came back to my apartment and we had dinner while we watched 27 dresses. Lizzie worked on my presentation for her interview on Saturday. Lizzie got a phone call from her friend Phillp and his roommate Brent. We decided to go out for ice cream. We went to a place called Angie's and had a "sink" full of ice cream. It was a beast but all 4 of us eat it all. Finally, we got ready for bed and worked more on her presentation. We got a phone call from a kid from Snow. They were having a party and invited us. We decided to go. We met at a movie theater at midnight and watched "Push". It was a weird movie but I liked it. We got home around 2 am and we talked for about a hour and finally decided to go to bed.
