Tonight President Olsen and I are the only ones left to close up shop. Usually when they go to dinner they'll ask me if I want anything and I always say I'm good. Well tonight he went to the cafeteria and came back with dinner for me! How nice is that? I'm so lucky I get to work at the MTC with good, wholesome, caring people.

The weekend started off with camping up American Fork Canyon on Friday night. It was so awesome to go up there with just Emily, Meagan, and Jacqueline. We are so awesome because we don't need boys. We set up our own tent and campfire.Saturday we awoke, had breakfast by the river, and then hiked up to Timp Cave. We didn't actually go in cause it's kind of expensive. So we trekked up 1.5 miles and then back down just for the heck of it. We then had a picnic with our leftover food before heading back into civilization. Jacqueline and I decided after being boys and getting gross while camping we wanted to be girls again so we got dressed up to go to dinner on Saturday night. We went to The Olive Garden with some friends and had a scrumdeliumptious dinner. Then we went back home and played a little knock-out (which I'm awesome at).

So I need to find something to do.....and this is where you come in. I'll take any and all suggestions.
On the upside :) I'm going camping this weekend and hiking up to Timpanogos Cave. Hooray for me!

I got the wreath from Tai Pan Trading last year. It may not go with the whole decor but I had it so it's up. The curtains are from Ikea. The candle thing I got from DI for $3 and then I just spray painted it black. The dish chair is Kelsey's but we're holding it for her during the summer. For her birthday present I recovered it. I'm still not actually done. I haven't sewn up the bottom but I'm taking a little break. It's time consuming when you have to do it by hand.
The kitchen is still kind of bare. I got the vase and flower from Ikea. It's super cute. The kitchen is so big I don't know what to do with it. I got the dry erase board that's on the right wall from DI for $5. It's in perfect condition and magnetic! I was really excited about finding it. Looking at this picture makes me want to do a window treatment. It'll add something to the room I think.
I know this is unlike me, but what can I say. I've really gotten into this type of thing lately and I figured since I'm going to be in this apartment for a year, I might as well make it home.

So time to update.
The weekend of April 25th, I went out to Colorado for Kelsey and Steve's wedding! It was fun and really really nice to get out of Provo. What wasn't nice was the freaking cold weather in Colorado. So anyway, I was a bridesmaid for Kelsey. We got a super nice hotel room for cheap. I love hotels.com! It's the bomb.com.
Then I came back to Provo and moved! I won't say where in case there are any creepers out there (you know who you are). I love my new place. Absolutely love it! It's not the ghetto like the Riviera. Not a place-full-of-memories-that-I-would-like-to-forget like Carriage Cove. Not a hell hole like the Branbury. And bigger than Nelson. My ward is way fun too...but that just may be because I've actually met some people and participated in activities.....who knows....
I got down to my Texas roots and went country dancing with people in my ward last Wednesday night. So much fun. I got really dizzy though from all the spinning. Trick to country dancing for a girl is to be partnered with a dude that actually knows what he's doing so he can just throw you around.
The following night I hit up the Quarry again, this time with Katie. I love love love climbing. I don't know if I'll ever do it for realz, as in climbing a real rock, but climbing fake walls is fun and a workout! These are the times I wish I was rich enough to do stuff like this all the time, but alas I cannot for I am not rich.
And guess what?! I'm totally going to Vegas to celebrate Katie and my birthdays. Once again, thanks to hotels.com we got an awesome deal on a hotel situated on the strip. Now we just have to plan activities that don't involve alcohol.
Side note, it's summer time (well almost)! I love not having to take classes, although I am taking an independent study course, but I can totally adjust that to my party schedule. This is the best time of the year. Like seriously.
