Home Sweet Home

Well, I was able to go home for Thanksgiving!

When I arrived in the Salt Lake airport I was 30 minutes early! So I took my time because I knew that my "parents" wouldn't be there for a while. I got my bag and went to where they were picking me up. I call my mom and she was like: We are on our way. Meaning her and my dad. Little did I know, it was not just those two. I am sitting there eating my McDonalds and here comes Karalee (my BFF) and my sister!!! I didn't know how to react!!! They both told me that "they were busy and couldn't come". LIARS! It was such a great surprise though! I love them both so much!

 I did have to get my wisdom teeth out, but that is ok! So  worth it! I flew home late on Monday the 19th and my surgery was scheduled for Tuesday the 20th at 8:00 am. Cutting it close, I know! Everything went well with my surgery, I was in and out in less than an hour! It only took them less than 15 minutes to actually take the teeth out. All the other time was either waiting or trying to wake up! That was the worst part for me. I was secretly hoping that I would be a crazy person coming off of anesthesia but... I wasn't. I was actually a baby! I woke up, my mamma was there and all of a sudden I just started crying. No reason. After I got over my crying spell, I was ready to go! haha I told my mom I felt like a million bucks! (They made me take the elevator, even though I could've walked the stairs! So I thought.)

Day 2

Day 4

The rest of my time in Utah was spent trying to recover. I felt really good actually! It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Not until the 3rd day... I thought I was going to die on the third day. Conveniently enough it was Thanksgiving Day! I would like you all to know that I did muster up the guts to eat everything on Thanksgiving! :) It took me a good 45 minutes but I did it!

My sister and I set up Christmas at my mom's house! :) It was the earliest that the tree has ever been put up! YES! Over achievers! All of our animals get decorated also! Mr. Moose get the privilege of wearing the Santa hat. This is definitely my favorite time of year!

This semester is almost over! Thank goodness! I can't wait to start new classes! 

This was short and sweet! Keep an eye out for more soon!

Holy cow! I don't even know where to begin! It has definitely been too long since I've posted.. Sorry about that! Here are A TON of pictures of things I have been doing here at MSUM. 

Yes, indeed. We dressed up for Halloween and we went Trick-or-Treating! :) Never too old! 

I have to give my Uncle Rich a shout out for the above pictures. He is the one that taught me the good ole' grape in the upper lip trick (cherry tomatoes in our case)! This was probably one of the funniest meals ever. Especially when we convinced our coach to do it with us! Times like these make me love the team I am on and make me so thankful that I am creating wonderful memories! Oh, and yes, we do have bibs on. 

Jackie-Man! Watching our evil! 

Vivi bags her own groceries... Gotta love her! :) 

It was my birthday during my non-posting period and I received THE BEST Birthday box from my parents! Inside were things from coloring book to Rice Krispie treats to Fry Sauce! Yes, fry sauce. The people in Minnesota DO NOT HAVE FRY SAUCE! I was talking about it one day and everyone was looking at me like I was speaking a foreign language. They have never even heard of it! o.O So, it was in my box, and I am going to change people's lives when they eat it! YUM! 

Best rookie ever! :) My room was decorated for me when I came home from my swim meet. 

Birthday wished from back home! 

Birthday Breakfast! :) 

The above pictures are from my Birthday! :) The first one (the box of candy) shows you how much candy we have in our room. Makayla and I decided to put all of our treats together, and this is what we came up with. Hole Shit. Too much sugar! 

My sister took this pic. This is why I miss CV! 

I wear that ring with pride! :) Love my Marine! 

The above pictures are from the night of my B-Day. We went out to eat and then we went to Walmart. As we were walking through the isles we found: Snap bracelets, lip kazoo'z, and poppers. Vivi has never seen any of it. So we bought them and let her experience every american child's childhood. To say the least, she loved it! :) 

Birthday Bucket from my Boy! :) 

So, my family made another big adventure up North. Now they came with 2 grannies! :) I was so excited to see them! We had a great time hanging out, and just catching up. I have missed them watching me swim! It was so great to have my little fan section back! :) 

CV once again! 

Taylor is ready for winter. 

Last, but not least. This is how a college kid eats Cheesecake. Bag the solid piece on a plate! Just throw it all in a bowl and call it good! 

Thanks for reading! Hopefully it won't take me as long to post again. I can't guarantee anything though!
