Treat Night ended up being a whole lot of interesting last night. It included dancing teletubby sheep heads, India making out with the sheep head, Hoff drinking a raw egg and much more. Oh and Jamo and Kitty have to eat a spoonful of garlic salt, talk about bad breath for dayzzzzz.
This Monday started out way good. I was able to get my bum outta bed at 6:45, that was exremely hard, and me and McElle went to a spin class. AND I LOVED EVERY SECOND. Besides the fact that my butt will feel bruised for a century, it was so enjoyable. It is nice taking classes because I feel like I push myself so much more. After class it was so nice being up early walking outside in the nice march weather and just taking in the day. I felt so productive and it was nice to have my workout for the day already done.
On Monday's I have Institute which for those who don't know what it is, it is a religion class that we LDS college students can take, it isn't worth any credits but it seems more helpful than most other classes I am taking. Any day I have an institute day is a good day, I feel like I come out of that class with so much better of an idea of who I am and what my purpose in life is. After classes ended me and Kaytee were on a sushi craving grind. So we decided to go to this sushi grill right after class. We show up and it is closed from 3:30 - 4:30... we got there at 3:35... how random are those times!? So Kaytee had to vacuum out her car and we went in search for a free car vacuum cleaner.
We drove up and down Main Street for a "Green Monkey" car wash that didn't actually exist, and Kaytee tried going to a car wash that had been shut down for years, she started to get frustrated that the vacuum didn't work until she realized it probably hadn't worked for the past 5 years, I was in tears with laughter. She was on a sassy roll today, I couldn't stop twitter quoting her.
Like the fact that she almost hit a pedestrian on the crosswalk, and was annoyed that he was angry yelling "NO ONE EVERY STOPS FOR ME ON CROSSWALKS" so I guess since people don't stop for her, others don't deserve it hahaha. After an hour long of Kaytee sass and the Vacuum search we finally got some well deserved Sushi. Where Kitty proceeded to flirt with the waiter the whole time, quoting, "I love flirting with waiters, even if they aren't cute". I will never understand her thinking?
After that it all went downhill. I have been sick with a cold that last week, with the voice of a smoker who smokes 10 packs a day. Then the sinus headache hit me and I was out cold for 4 hours. When I woke up it looked I had been to hell and back. One side of my hair was sticking 10 feet in the air.... or like it seemed, and the clothing I was wearing was half of what I wore to school, thrown with a sweater, and random leggings. I could have definitely won a spot on "What not to Wear". Abby was in the same boat, so we decided to get an ugly roommates of the day photo. Then she passed my like four pills to take, saying it would fix my headaches. I am still questioning what kind of pills she gave me. I guess we will find out soon.
Happy Monday Everyone.

Happy Sunday my friends! Ahh I just love the weekends. Maybe especially this weekend, it has just been so dang good! Our church is usually at 9:30, which after a Saturday night of getting to bed at 3 am can cause a lot of tears. BUT this Sunday is was Stake Conference so it was at ONE, lets get a hallelujah! Even better it was in Logan's Tabernacle, it is always a great experience having church in a building with such rich history. So since church was later Kaytee, Abby, and I rolled out of bed around 10:30 and got started on breakfast. My breakfast was oh so delicious, Abs and Kitty were raging with jealousy I had some yogurt with granola, and the freshest most divine strawberries I have had in while. We had all the blinds open, church music playing, and happy vibes all morning. Then we headed to church and met up with all our friends in our stake. We got a new presidency so we were able to hear all of their testimonies, and to hear the testimonies of men who are so close to God brings happiness to my heart, I didn't get to write any notes while listening to them, but one of my favorite quote from institute I heard this week was "When you are feeling beaten and discouraged and of no hope, that is Satan. When you feel a pull to do better and improve oneself, that is God". This helps me to realize that no matter how many mistakes I make and no matter how bad I, or anyone else messes up, God will always forgive you. When you feel down and worth nothing, that is Satan getting at you, God is on your other side telling you he is there to help and lift you up. Christ who suffered an indescribable amount of pain and death for us, wants nothing but the best for you and I, and wishes only happiness for us. The only way he can give you that happiness is if you let him in, which can be as simple as a prayer to him.
After church we headed home, cooked some lunch. I made stir fry for the first time, and dang I am gooooooood. I tried a bite expecting to gag a little bit, but hey it was good, so props to me! As we all cooked we sang and danced around, that happens basically every time we go into the kitchen, and I love it so much. I think that maybe my dance moves are getting better..... probably not.
Now me and abs are sitting in our living room watching the Oscars and drooling over Zac Efron.
And later some friends are coming over for treat night. So today started good and will end good with yummy food and good company.
Happy Sunday :)

This morning at the Ivy House has been one of best Saturday mornings yet. With the rain falling outside, John Mayer playing in the background, and sipping on some tea, how can it not be a great day. Although it's been relaxing I was actually quite productive. I did some spring cleaning in my bedroom, lets say that took awhile. I cleaned the kitchen, did some homework, and did some sketching. Most say they aren't morning people, but I think mornings are the best. Most of the Ivy Girls went home for the weekend so it was just Kitty, Abs, and I. As I did some scripture study and Kaytee did some homework we just listened to the rain pour down, and that small simple moment just made my day. It realized that it is small simple moments that our life is made up of, and those are the moments we should cherish most. One day when I'm married and have kids and I am running all over the house trying to get things done, I will think back to my college days. And I will remember them so fondly and maybe even wish I could go back. I want to take in every moment, every laugh, every party, every friendship that I have in college and savor it. I feel like I have done that a lot lately. By no means is my life perfect, there are a lot of trials I have to go through, but this week has been the happiest week. Nothing has gotten me down, just walking up old main in the morning would make me smile, or sweeping the floor as my roommates talk about crushes. All those moments have made my heart so happy this week. My goal is to keep my mind on all the positives in my life, because lets face it, I have been blessed with so much that even the the biggest of trials are so small compared to all the good in my life.
