i'm not good at coming up with titles...

this past weekend I went to Smithfield Utah, like I did last semester, to visit some old friends. I headed up Friday after class and stayed until like 7 pm on sunday. I was having too much fun and didn't want to return to stressful life in Provo. Anyways, we went bowling on Saturday and I spent A TON of time jumping on the trampoline. I felt like a little kid again. And we played the Wii and I talked Karstyn into letting me try and corn row his hair [he won't let anyone do anything but brush it...]. all it took was a promise to bring peanut butter m&m's next time i visit. :) I love my little boys and their family <3

i don't want to go through the hassle of commenting under every picture. the last picture is karstyn's attempted corn row. crystal, their aunt, is in one of the pictures. and the little blonde girl with konnyn is their cousin lolah.  the rest are just the boys, kamryn, korbyn, karstyn, and konnyn. :)

Dearest Kell Bell

I just wanted to give a little shout out to my wonderful Irish roommate. Who upon waking up this morning, started blasting the Irish tunes. She decorated our apartment with Irish festive things. AND... she also kicked some butt tonight with her crew, the Equalizers, at BYU's Best Dance Crew. It was phenomenal. Her crew took first place and had some amazing moves and awesome dance mix. It was great and I loved watching it. KELL.... YOU ROCK!

A Little Weekend Fun

This past weekend Christina and Don's KYLA was blessed in church. Pretty much all of the family flew out for the blessing and we spent some time together in Michigan. We went to IKEA, I took a nap with Kyla while everyone else went swimming [i had forgotten my swimming suit], opened presents, ate cake, shopped, and i was feeling crazy and cut 4 inches off my hair. Which may not seem like a lot, but I haven't done anything besides trim my hair since I was a sophomore in high school...... but I love the shorter [for me] hair and how healthy it feels.

Christina's kids are adorable and it was a really fun weekend. Kyla is precious. I don't think I ever heard her cry! Andrew, Brendan, and Hallie crack me up. We had fun playing hide and seek and chase Alison around till she gets tired. Thanks for letting me come visit Christina!

Recent Realization...

You may wonder why all the sudden blog posts and changes to the blog in the past couple of days... 
Well, I am testing my self control and trying to go for a certain amount of time without using facebook. 
AND.... it's a LOT harder than I thought it would be... 
making me realize that I am ADDICTED to facebook. 

Now it's not just a self-control experiment, it's going to be me trying to not be so dependent on the site. 
If i post alot lately it's because I'm trying desperately to keep myself off facebook. 
So be prepared for some really random things from me in the next couple days until it gets easier!!!

    golfing with the boys

    Last week I got a call from Kevin Uigaese telling me that him and his family would be in SLC for the weekend. On Saturday I drove up to West Jordan and spent the day with them. We went golfing, had hamburgers, and played Band Hero [pretty much like rockband]... it was a fun day. Korbyn and Karstyn made me promise I would come visit them in Smithfield soon, so I think I'm going up there in two weeks. Here are some pictures of the little boys, not so little anymore.

    I got to meet THOMAS!

    My mom was in Las Vegas this past week helping out my brother and sister-in-law with their new baby Thomas. I was talking to her one day a few weeks ago and thought "what the heck? i'll go down too!" I got off work on Friday and headed down. It was a fun weekend. On Saturday we went to Chucke Cheese and sadly watched BYU lose to New Mexico. Then we watched the movie 21 to help us feel like we were really experiencing Vegas and then drove down the strip Saturday night.
    It was a fun trip. William is a crack up and kept hiding behind the curtains waiting for me to come find him. Then we would run around the halls together. The little guy is so cute and talking alot more and it's just so precious! Thomas is a little cuddle buddy and I loved holding him so much. I had to fight my mom for it.. and I think I won most of the time... haha. Anyways, it was a fun weekend. Mike and Judi your little boys are so cute!! <3
