This weekend is Memorial weekend! The past Memorial day weekends, I've always had soccer tournaments out of town, but not this one. I am in Idaho. All my roommates went to Utah for the weekend. It's been kind of nice having the place to myself, but overtime, I think I'd get lonely. And at night it gets a little scary, especially when the wind is blowing really strong. It's different not doing what I usually do for holidays now that I am in college. But, I guess that is the beauty of growing up.
I just updated my weebly site. For those who don't know what weebly is, it's just a site kind of like a blog, but you can add pages and what not. Mine is for a class, but we had to make it for our future class (my major is Elementary Education). Check it out sometime! (just click on "check" and it will take you there).
Anyways, I found a quote that I love, it's "There is no greater gift one human being can give another than the opportunity to learn and grow in a loving and nurturing learning environment." I cannot wait to teach!
A little thought....my bangs are getting too long. (please ignore the nerdy mirror picture, it was just easier to capture the longness of my bangs)
Anyways, my good friend Bethany broke her collarbone playing soccer. This crazy girl on the other team ninja-ed the ball in the air and somehow KNEED Bethany in the collarbone, while Bethany was standing up. How could anyone possible knee someone else in the collarbone, while they were standing up you ask? Well, that is a question we will never know. Well, now she can't really work out hard. So I have been going to the gym and biking with her! It has been way fun! We people watch and talk most of the time, so the working out part doesn't seem too hard! It's been way fun getting to know her and becoming better friends with her. Our other friend Alex joined in once. We decided we are going to make a biking crew. It's going to be way fun, I'm excited. We'll take pictures and show you :)
Yesterday, I went and saw Pirates 4 with my friend Rachel in 3D! It was good, but I miss Kiara Knightley and Orlando Bloom. Other than that, it was pretty good!
Today was easy going. Just another bike session with Bethany, then the store to buy some food. I made chocolate chip cookie sandwiches. It's where you make chocolate chip cookies and then put vanilla frosting in the middle. SO delicious. I also took a nice long nap. It was well deserved and needed!
I got to skype my sister yesterday! It was so good talking to her and seeing my nephews! Jack got his first haircut and he looks so grown up! His curls are gone, but he still looks adorable. Baby Max is growing too. He was staring at the screen wondering what was going on. I can't wait to go home and see those little bebes!!
Welp, that's about all for now. Catch ya later!

Welp it's Wednesday, that's right, hump day. I think I really like Wednesdays because it means that there is just two more days in the week until the weekend.
Right now, I am watching my roommate hula dance. She is way good and knows how to shake it! I tried doing it, and let me just say, you have to have a LOT of leg muscle endurance. It is tough work!
Today was a beautiful day in Rexburg. The sun was shining and it was around 60 degrees. People were out studying on the grass and enjoying the weather as much as I was. During this time of year, the campus is full of tulips! My favorite flower! There are red ones, pink ones, yellow ones, and orangeish ones. So pretty. I took a picture, but I think I am going to take more this weekend!
This weekend is Memorial day. A time to remember those who have and are still serving for our country. What a blessing it is to have a country that is FREE. This was only made possible by those who have served and risked their lives to make that happen.

Welp, welcome to my blog! Quite exciting I know. This is my first post, so I will try to say things of somewhat importance!
I decided to make a blog for 2 reasons:
1-It's easier to write online, than in a journal. (So, you will be reading some thoughts, stories, quotes, etc. from me....get excited!!)
2-I wanted to make my own site, to make it look somewhat cute.
So, this week went by fast. The days went by fast, because I was busy with homework and other fun festivities. But, homework was the main key. Math might be kicking my rear end right now. I have a B in the class, which isn't bad, but an A sounds much better. So, hello math tutor! In my World Foundations II class we are talking about classical music, and I decided, I really like classical music. It is just so soothing and it makes me want to go to a ball and wear a pretty dress...kinda like the one Taylor Swift wears in her music video Love Story.ps. I love Taylor Swift.
Anyways, I am on a competitive soccer team called the Vikings, and we are BOMB.com, but seriously. We are undefeated. We had a game tonight and played against a team that was a little rough. They broke our teammate's collarbone. So keep her in your prayers! It's a good thing we beat them, or else there would have been a serious beat down after the game. But anyways, I love my team:)
Well, I'm pretty sure I will have more exciting post from now on. I'm just getting started, so cut me some slack!
Oh, and my name is Lizzie :)
