Weekend in Utah & School Update

Well yet again, almost another month has gone by without a blog. Haha.

Last weekend I went down to SLC to see Brent. We went to a barbecue at Tyler's house for Tyler's birthday. He turned the big 21. It was a lot of fun, and I got to meet a lot of their friends. It was very relaxing and a good time. We played croquet, ate food, and got eaten by mosquitoes. Haha.

The next day we went to Brent's chuch, Washington Heights Baptist Church. I absolutely love it there. If/when I move down there, I'm so going there. There is lots of beautiful songs, with a live band. And the messages are always amazing; I constantly find myself reflecting on my life and how I live it. It really is an amazing place. Later that night we went swimming at Gus and his girlfriends' appartment complex, and then headed over to Weber State to watch fireworks.

It was an amazing weekend, as it always is with Brent, and I had a lot of fun. I miss him lots.

As for the school update I have 2 weeks left of school. My last day is the 8th and I take boards on the 10th in Boise. My mom and I went and bought all my stuff for boards... Over $100 dropped yesterday... Dang. My "baby boards" are on Wednesday; hopefully that helps me a lot to be more prepared for boards. I still have 11 perms, 15 thermals, 1 facial, and 1 semi left to do. I'm kinda stressing, but I know I'll get everything done.

Well, that's all I have for now...

Oh, one last thing. Since my grandma has been staying with us, I've kinda got to know her a lot better than before. Yesterday I painted her nails, and we talked for a few hours. Then we watched a chick flick together. I love having her around. She is the sweetest little grandma ever. I also colored her hair yesterday. She just looks fabulous. :]

Time flies!

Geez. Time flies doesn't it? It's been a month since I've posted. This last weekend was the 4th of July, and Brent came down to visit. I love having him here. He got here on Friday and I met him at my house after working on the Vogue's float for the parade. I was in the parade on Saturday, and he decided to sleep in.

The Vogue's float was really cute, patriotic, and it followed the parade's theme "the 4th of July through a child's eyes." A section of our float was a little kids room with BIG stuffed animals and giant toy blocks and a big doll house and carousel horse. Another section of the float was a picnic area with over-sized hamburgers and hot dog and watermelon and giant Pepsi and Coca Cola cans. There was also a kiddie pool in that section. The last section had giant fireworks that we had build and we had Donnie in a Navy outfit holding the flag. Our idea was morning/noon/night. I sat in the kiddie pool with Nikki and two little girls. All the girls did their hair like little girls: pigtails and side pony's with ringlets, and we all had BIG red and blue bows. (When I get some pictures I'll post them).

After the parade, I was VERY tired, so I went home and took a nap with Brent. Then we decided to go down by the river and check out all the little stands that businesses had up. We bought some yummy kettle corn, and got a coupon for the new Hard Hat Restaurant. We had the BEST view of the fireworks. We went to freeman and found a spot that wasn't crowded at all, and we could even see the low fireworks. We also brought our left over Mongolian Grill; very American I know. Haha.

All in all I had an amazing weekend. :]

Here's some pictures:

Brent eating his Mongolian Grill. Haha.

The camera made his eye look weird. :/

Beautiful View.

I miss my Brent. :[
