Our cougars pulled through with another victory on Saturday. BUT the best part of the whole game was that Craig and I were on TV i'm pretty sure. They captured this moment...

Craig sat on my lap to keep me warm. It was absolutely freezing. The next thing I know there is a camara in my face. So we smiled and waved as Craig said, "Oh Crap". Good thing I wasn't picking my nose or THAT would've been embarrassing. We can't help that we're just ridiculously good-looking.

Hit by a car

Nope....I wasn't the one that got hit. My roommate got hit by a car tonight. Very scary! Some idiot chick driver was going about 30mph and hit my roommate, Lindsay as she was crossing the crosswalk. The EMT came and took her to the ER. You gotta love my roommate though...when the EMT got to the site of the accident Lindsay told the EMT to call my other roommate Bekah and tell her that she wasn't going to be able to make it to FHE (Lindsay is our FHE mom) Bekah about busted up laughing...way to magnify your calling Linds. Anyway, she was definitely blessed with the fact that she didn't have a concussion, any broken bones or fractures. She's definitely feeling some extremely bad pain though. Our ward is so great and rallied around the cause and helped out with a bunch. It's great how the gospel brings us all together. Your thoughts and prayers would be much appreciated.

Broken Sandals

Well Everyone...I am sad to announce that my super cute black sandals passed away the other day. Let me fill you in on what happened. Last week on Tuesday I was up on campus walking back from the devotional with Craig and Bekah. Ya know....I'm just walking along minding my own business in a huge crowd of people. Lucky me that I take after my extremely clumsy older sister (love you Bre) I totally tripped on a little crack in the side walk. It was one of those cracks that the squares of cement don't line up quite right so one of them is a little higher than the other...yah that beloved one. You think Cement layers would know how to evenly spread Cement. I blame them for this mishap. Anyway, so i totally trip and the strap of my sandal broke. Luckily these sandals had a strap around the ankle too so they were still connected. My sandal was pretty much dragging on the floor so I had to pick up my foot. I felt like a retarded horse. Craig and Bekah could not stop laughing at me. It was aweful. I was going to be late for one of my classes so I had to go to class with a broken shoe. Craig, as kind and gracious as he is, picked me up after my class and ran me home so that i could get a new pair of shoes and made it back to campus just in time for my next class.
Because these sandals are my favorite shoes I felt like I needed to save them in some way. Thank goodness for the divine invention of Gorilla Super Glue right? Thanks to Craig he lent me some glue to repair my poor shoe. So i reattached the strap with the glue...gave it a little tug to make sure it worked and what did I find?....A miracle! It totally worked....or so i thought.
This past Tuesday I decided to give it a shot and wear the sandals again. I was running a little bit late on this particular morning. It wasn't the greatest morning to be running late either...I had a paper due in my first class so i was trying to book it up to campus. So I'm walking fairly quickley....backpack on back, coat in hand, sandals functioning great until what happened? THE SAME EXACT THING! I tripped on a stupid cement square that was little bit higher than the previous one and my sandal broke again! I stopped for a second and did a lot bit of that dance when your not really sure if you should go back or keep on going forward. People, I had just barely passed the riviera parking lot when this happened so I definitely was not too far away from my apartment. I'm pretty sure any normal girl would've said, "screw class. I want to look good. and I definitely don't want to be looking like a horse walking around all day with a broken shoe." Well mom, I'm pleased to announce that my schooling won this battle. I can't believe i did this but i just kept on trudging...ALL THE WAY UP TO CAMPUS. I went to my first class with a broken shoe..trying so hard to not turn heads. I text Bekah and Craig of what had tragically happened to me. They definitely got a kick out of it. Bekah, bless her soul, brought me a new pair of sandals to the devotional.

Moral of the Story: Time for new black Sandals! oh and...Watch out for those stupid abnormally raised Cement squares in the ground. Come one Cement Layers...learn how to do your job. You broke my favorite shoe.

Ya know...I've never really been a big fan of Halloween. The only cool thing about it was that you got free candy for just saying "trick-or-treat" and you didn't even need to do a trick. All Halloween is, is an attention-seeking holiday. I mean, really though...think about it. People try to have the best costumes just so people will notice them. I've always believed that Halloween is just an excuse for girls to dress slutty and get away with it. Now we all know what I'm talking about. Obnoxious guys, thinking they are so cool in their ridiculous costumes and girls walking around, scantily dressed in their nurses outfits and soccer that is my idea of a party. Because I want to avoid this WHOREndous sight, Craig and I had a party of our own. We went grocery shopping and then played scrabble. Sure, you might say to yourself "wow that's extremely lame. Can you guys not think of anything else to do on Halloween night?" Frankly, we quite enjoyed our peace and quiet. Eat that Halloween....
