Finally home!

Thursday night Amber Ashlee Jake and I were all going to meet and get ice cream together. While we were waiting for Ash and Jake I got a call from Ash telling me that she wasn't coming because tray had got into an ATV accident and was in the hospital. It was so scary. I was going to go down and see him but it was really late and I wasn't sure when visiting hours were. I felt really bad for not going so on my way out of town on Friday I went to go see him. The poor kid has fractured majority of his thoracic vertebrae, collapsed a lung, broke his shoulder and so much more I can't remember. He is going to be in the hospital for a while, it's going to be a long process until they are finished fixing him up. I am so glad he is alive though, it's so hard to see him in this much pain, he is my baby tray!! ):

Once I got into town on Friday I went to lunch with my mom, it was a lot of fun! After lunch I went to Dylan's, it was so good seeing him after 2 weeks! We carved pumpkins together, I had been wanting to carve pumpkins so it was nice of him to do that with me even though carving pumpkins is sometimes frustrating! After that we went to Dragon Hill with my mom and dad, I wish we had a Dragon Hill up here! We all watched a scary movie after that, it wasn't the best scary movie, but it wasn't the worst one either.
Saturday morning we woke up and went to Kneeder's for all you can eat french toast. It was amazing, but I cant really eat that much! Later that night we were going to a Halloween party and scavenger hunt with Dylan's family so we needed to go get stuff for our costumes. Dylan was getting tights and I figured they were for his sister...they were for him!! It was hilarious, but it actually looked really great with his costume! We helped decorate cookies with his mom for a bit, but then we needed to start getting ready because Dylan's costume was going to take a while! It took us a little over 3 hours to get everyone's make up ready! But we all ended up looking really good! Especially Dylan, his creeped me out and I knew it was him! Me and Dylan had to stay at this creepy barn for the scavenger hunt, I was so freaked out! Especially because I had to sit at a creepy barn with a creepy clown!! After the hunt was over we had to hurry and get out of our costume so that we could go with Scott and his girlfriend to a haunted house. It took a while to get all the make up off, especially Dylan's mask. Plus he glued the wig to his head by accident with latex so that took a was hilarious to watch!! Dylan couldn't get all the make up off in time for the haunted house so he went out with eye liner on, it was awesome!(:

Well it was Sunday again. I couldn't believe how fast the weekend came and went. Me and my mom made pumpkin cookies that morning. Dylan, my grandparents and my aunt came over for lunch, it was good seeing them, it had been a while! After lunch Codie and Chase came over!! I haven't seen Codie for like 3 weeks! I  missed and still miss everyone so so much. I just want to be home! Leaving this weekend was probably the hardest it has ever been. If it keeps getting harder I don't think I will be able to leave!

Longest Week

Monday night was an interesting night. In the middle of the night I was all of a sudden woken up by Ashlee and was crouching between the bed's. When she asked me what I was doing I replied "How did I get in the middle of the room?" and then she told me that I had jumped out of bed started ducking between the beds screaming "OH MY HELL" over and over again! It was so weird! I went back to bed and not to much later I hear "BROOKE, GO BACK TO BED!" I was in my bed so I replied "Ashlee, what are you talking about?" then Ashlee freaks out and say's "Oh my gosh! It's not you by the door?! I have been hearing someone rattling the door and whispering!" That sort of freaked me out, especially since my bed is the one closest to the door! I never heard anything, but Ashlee swears she did. We all think the house is haunted because not to log ago Megan sat up in her sleep and just stared at a wall forever and went back to bed, when Amber asked about it, she couldn't remember doing it. Then their is me screaming and Ashlee hearing whispering. Now tabby woke up with a huge bruise on her leg and has no idea what it is from, so yeah....there is a ghost here. 

Tuesday wasn't really all that exciting of a day, I just studied all day because midterms are coming up...I'm not so excited about that. After class got out Ashlee wanted me to go to IF with Amber to see her at work. I wasn't to excited about the drive there, plus there was no way I could afford to eat at her work, it is so expensive there! When we got there Ashlee was off and we sat down and she asked what we wanted to eat, me and Amber just sat there and looked at each other because both of us knew that we couldn't afford to eat. Ashlee then said "get whatever you want I am buying" that was really nice of her. She got us an appetizer, made us each get our own plate, and got us dessert. We ate until we were completely stuffed! Ashlee has these things called pasta points so it covered most of our meal luckily, I felt bad if she had to pay for all of that! I forgot to mention that me and Amber had to sneak out of the house because we didn't really want to bring Megan. Well that sort of made things awkward. None of the other roommates would really talk to us at all when we got back, even when we would try to talk to them they wouldn't reply. It's been a little awkward around here lately. I don't know why they think that we have to do everything together!

Wednesday was another day filled with studying. I had an interview at wingers that night, it was such a weird interview. Then again it was the only interview I have had, I've always been hooked up with my jobs by someone I know. Anyways, I go in he asked me a list of weird questions, some seemed irrelevant, and then said thank you and I left. I don't know if they will call me back or anything, but I sort of hope not because he said that they were mostly looking for weekend help and I don't like that. There was a free dinner thing at our apartment that started at 530. Me Ash and Amber were all going to go once we all got home. I was at my interview until about 6. Amber went to take a test at 5, and Ashlee was at a baby shower. When I got home I went in my room to watch Netflix until they got home. It started getting later and later and finally at 8 I went in the living room to watch TV. At about 9 Amber pokes her head around the corner, She had been home since like 7 and I had no idea!! She had been waiting for me and I had been waiting for her and we were in the same house! For some reason when Amber got home and asked Megan where I was, she told her that I wasn't home? Obviously we missed the free dinner, and Ashlee didn't even get home until 10.

I leave for home tomorrow. I feel like I haven't been home in forever! Why I named this the longest week is because everyday this week has dragged. It feels like every day has more hours in it than normal! I just can't wait to be home again. I know my parent's came and saw me last week, which I am highly grateful for, but I miss being back at home too! Ashlee and Amber are kind of upset that I am leaving because there is a Halloween party they want me to go to Friday night with them. As much as I want to hang with them, I hate parties, and I miss home. I am not much of a dancer as I have previously said, so it's just awkward when I go and we stand there like you do at lame Jr. High dances. Plus all people really are there for is to pick up guys, and the only guy I want to pick up is down in Utah! So yeah, I don't mind if they are upset, dance parties are lame. Sorry I don't have any pictures this week so the blog is even more lame than normal, so I posted a picture of cute lab puppies instead!

Surprise Visit

Friday I wasn't sure what I was going to do because everyone went home for the weekend besides me and the two weird roommates. Ashlee invited me to go with her and Harry to go to a haunted house. We ended up going to this place called Theater of Lost Souls. It was actually really good! The people weren't that scary, it was the place that was really creepy! It was fun, but I wished that Dylan could have came with me! My parents decided to surprise visit me that weekend. I told them that I was having a hard time and was really homesick, it was really nice of them! I really appreciate them for that, I don't know what I would do without them! We all stayed up late talking, I was so tired but I didn't want to go to bed!

The next day we were trying to figure out what we could do but none of us had any ideas! We decided to go to Scotty's for lunch. They had really good burgers, but I wasn't the biggest fan of their fries. I then had to quick make a stop and interview this girl in the Public Health career for one of my classes. After I finished my assignment we went to Reed's Dairy for ice cream. They milk the cow's and make all of their product right there in the store! They have amazing ice cream and chocolate milk. It was really funny because my grandpa wanted to walk all around the farm and the building to show me the cow's and them getting milked. He told me how they milked them and everything, I love listening to his stories. After ice cream we went back to the house and my grandma wanted to teach me how to crochet. We crocheted and watched a movie until it was time to meet the rest of my family for dinner for my cousins birthday. After dinner we played games, it was a lot of fun but I started to zone out at the very end because I was so tired!

Sunday morning my mom got up and colored my hair, I was really glad she did that for me. I have no idea how I would get my hair done without her, I don't trust anyone else with my hair! I cut it how I normally do this time, but I think I am going to start growing it out again. I miss my long hair! We all just hung out until it was time for my parents to go again. After they left I met Ashlee for my uncles birthday. We had elk, It was so delicious! I ate so much! I hung out with Ashlee and her friends the rest of the night and the came home, Amber was finally home! We talked all night like we always do.

Today I was studying all day and realized it was getting late and I needed to go donate plasma, so I went and donated without eating...this was a bad idea. Everything seemed to be going well but about halfway through my head started buzzing and I felt really dizzy! Luckily I made it through without passing out and then ate as soon as I got home! For FHE we went to the haunted mill. My group made me be the very front, I hated not having anyone to hold on to and hide from the people, I needed Dylan there!

This weekend ended up being good all because of my parents! I'm so glad they came to see me. I'm hoping to come home this weekend because I really miss Dylan and my sister. It feels like ages since I have seen them! I have a job interview this Wednesday so I am hoping that it doesn't interfere with me coming home this weekend and for Halloween. I don't know if I should still take the job when I only have two months left of the semester. I guess we will see how it goes! I got our roommate pictures so I will post some of them!

Sluff day

Monday was a pretty boring day. I just went to school, donated plasma, then we had FHE. For FHE we were going to have a bonfire so me Ashlee and Megan went to the store and got things for campfire cones. Campfire cones is an idea Ash got off of Pinterest. you get waffle cones, marshmallows chocolate, strawberries, bananas, anything you can think of and stuff it inside the cone. you then wrap it up in tinfoil and stick it in the fire to melt all together. Me and Ashlee decided we would make hot chocolate before we went because it was going to be really cold. I didn't really have anything to put my hot chocolate in besides my water bottle, well that was a bad idea. One of the FHE brothers came to pick us up and as we were getting in his car he was telling us that it was his baby and he had put so much money into her, you know boys and their cars, it actually was old and ugly so i'm not sure what he was talking about. Anyways I'm sitting in his car and all of a sudden my hot chocolate decides to explode like a volcano out of my straw! I felt so bad, there was hot chocolate everywhere! I ran as fast as I could to go get a wet rag. Ashlee told me that while I was gone he told everyone that he had just redone the leather seats! Luckily from what I could tell everything came out. I still feel horrible about it though! So back to the campfire cones, I was actually really excited to try them out, but they ended up being really disgusting! The cones all burnt and tasted bad, the marshmallows didn't really melt, and it was just a mess! It was still fun though, I just hope that there is no hard feeling's about the hot chocolate disaster...

Tuesday wasn't quite as boring as the other Tuesdays I have had. I cleaned all morning, did some homework, and then we went to the shelter to walk dogs! I was so happy seeing dogs, I am going to try to make it a weekly thing to go and walk the shelter dogs, its a good excuse to get out of the apartment too! After school I had a job interview at Wingers at 7. My cousin had a football game in Rexburg at 730 so all of us roommates were just going to go to the game after my interview. Everyone came along and waited in the car for my interview to get over. I got in and they sat me down with popcorn and said they would be with me as soon as they could. 15 mins went by...nothing. 30 mins went by...still nothing besides another girl for an interview! At this point I called Ashlee and told her that she could take my car to the game and I would call her when I was done. An hour comes along and another girl shows up for an interview! finally at like 810 the manager came and apologized and said he would have to call us to reschedule. I haven't heard from him yet. I'm kind of really annoyed that I waited that long for nothing. I got to catch the end of my cousins game and went to Dairy Queen with them after so that was fun.

Wednesday everyone wanted to get roommate pictures. We were up all night on Tuesday because they were picking out everyone's outfits. I am not very fond of dressing up or getting pictures, so I just laid on the bed and observed and let them decide what I was going to wear. They kept me up until 3 and I had to get up the next morning at 630! Needless to say I accidentally slept through my first class and then woke up 10 mins before my second class. I probably looked like a zombie in that class! I got home from school and found out that everyone had skipped school that day! Everyone wanted to stay home and get ready for pictures. Unfortunately it was really windy that day so pictures were hard to take. Even though I hate taking pictures, We got some pretty cute pictures! There was a party with free pizza and ice cream that me and amber really wanted to go to that night. We ended up not going because all of us passed out in the living room and slept right through it! I am still kind of upset that I let myself miss out on free stuff...especially pizza and ice cream!

This weekend is the first weekend I am not seeing Dylan and my family, It really sucks. I don't know what I am going to do. Ashlee, Megan, and Amber are all going to Utah this weekend too, I am going to be alone with the crazies!! I need to find something to do this weekend or just lock myself in my room away from them! I really hope I can go home next weekend. I miss everyone so so much!

Haunted Mill

Friday morning after school I had no idea what to do until my parents and Dylan got into town. I tried to take a nap because the night before me Ashlee and Amber went out to a movie and then out to eat and didn't get home until 2, but I couldn't fall asleep! so instead I cleaned until I had to go to my group meeting. After my group meeting I was going to donate again, but I lost motivation and decided to watch TV with amber instead! Ashlee wanted a tour of Winsor Manor so that helped pass time too! I then made Fruity Pebble rice crispy treats and then just sat around until it was time to leave. Me Ashlee and Harry met my family at Olive Garden. Usually my dad doesn't like that place, but it is all you can eat pasta, so that's the only time he will go! I was glad because I love their bread sticks! After that we went back to Bryan and Michelle's. We stayed up and talked to B for a bit, but we were all pretty tired and went to bed.

In the morning we had Elli's baptism, I was sort of nervous on how everything would go down because Michelle's Ex was trying to cause so many problem's so I thought there was going to be a huge fight! You could feel some tension there, but luckily he put his problems aside, and Elli was able to have a great baptism. After the baptism we went back to Rexburg to show Dylan and my family my appartment, they got to see how nasty some of my roommates were! I really wanted them to meet Amber but she had went back home to Utah so they are going to have to meet her some other time! We then went to lunch at Michelle's. The food was really good, I thin I ate mostly dessert and rolls though! Her mom makes these amazing pumpkin bars, I wish I could bake so I could make them all the time! Everyone was just resting until the haunted house that night. Dylan Tracen and Skylar started a war with Nurf guns and this weird bow and arrow thing, I just collected bullets and gave them to people so that no one would shoot me!(: It was a lot of fun, but it got hot so me and Dylan went outside but the fight followed us there! That led to playing smear the queer, I couldn't play that game very well because when I would tackle someone they would just keep running while I was being drug behind! But that's okay because I still had a lot of fun!

Finally it was time for the Haunted Mill! I was so excited to take Dylan there because he loves haunted houses and I knew that Haunted Mill was a good one! I am retarded though and had ten dollars in my back pocket and lost it while we were standing in line! Usually inside haunted houses I am the one screaming the most, but this time Dylan was screaming as much as me, maybe even more than me!(: It was funny because my Aunt and Uncles were in the group ahead of us and they kept staying back and scaring us! I didn't mind when Dylan got scared because he would just run and take me with him so all I had to do was close my eye's and scream while he ran for me! We went out to eat at Applebee's after and while we were there we decided to go to the Haunted Forrest! At the Haunted Forrest there was this guy that would not leave my mom alone, it was kind of funny but he sort of over stayed his welcome! The haunted Forrest was good, especially because I hate being outside in the dark. But compared to the Haunted Mill it wasn't as scary! I still had a lot of fun though! When we got back to my uncles I was so tired but I really didn't want to go to bed because I knew it was my last night with everyone, I couldn't believe how fast the weekend had gone by!

Sunday morning I woke up way before everyone else did, so I laid in bed for a bit not wanting to wake anyone so early. I told Dylan I would wake him up when I got up so I went and got him up even though I felt bad! Once everyone was up and moving we went to my grandmas to make breakfast burritos. All of the boy's and me went to Sportsman's and looked around for a bit. When we were leaving there was a guy selling Lab puppies, they were so adorable! I want a puppy so bad, especially a black lab! We then watched Football and had Ice cream until it was time to for Dylan and my parents to leave. Me and Dylan went for a walk before they left. We walked to the temple, Idaho Falls temple is one of my favorites. Sadly after our walk they had to leave. I love the weekends, I just hate how they end.

This weekend was one of the best weekends ever, I was so glad Dylan and my parents could come up! Now it's going to suck because I'm not sure if I will be able to make it home before Halloween, I'm going to try to go the weekend before but I'm not positive! :/ I was really sad that Codie and Chase couldn't come up, but me and Codie are finding a time for them to come in November so that will be fun!

Sorry for the wait!

I figured I should probably get on and do my blog since it's been a week and my parents keep asking me when I am going to update my blog! (: So I have a lot to write after a week, so sorry if this bores you!

So Friday I got out of class and left right for home at 9, I was so excited to get home earlier in the day rather than that night! I got to town around 12 and was going to surprise Codie and go to lunch with her, I should have been smarter and called her earlier than I did because she was at lunch with my dad! It sucked because I really wanted to see her but that's okay because I still go to see her later that week! I then went home and grabbed something quick for lunch so that I could hurry and go see Dylan, he had just gotten his wisdom teeth taken out the day before! I promised him I would bring him ice cream that day but we decided we were going to get it later. He thought that his face was really chubby, but I didn't think it was really that swollen! We watched TV, played games, and then took a nap. His mom made this amazing soup, I don't really know what it was, but it was great! After dinner we met my parents at Arctic Circle to get some Ice Cream. After that we went back to my house and hung out until Dylan's mom came to pick him up.

Saturday morning my dad woke me up and we went to Kneeder's with Codie. We got the all you can eat French Toast, it was really good, but Codie said it is usually better so I am going to have to go again! Next time I go I am getting a Pumpkin Steamer, I love them and they are seasonal so I need to get at least one before they are gone! We went back to the house and watched conference until my mom got off work, she wanted to go to lunch. I was still full from breakfast but I really wanted to go out with my mom so I was willing to eat again! I got the one of the salads with Codie, it wasn't too bad. I went to Dylan's and watched the rest of the second half of conference with them. We were all going to see Annabelle that night at 8. Me and Dylan had no idea what to do until 8! We ended up playing battle ships and connect four until then, it was a lot of fun. Especially because I totally whooped his but...(: just kidding, I did win quite a bit, but he one the last game of "winner takes it all" so I lost! Before Annabelle we went to Rumbi for dinner, I had never been there, I really liked it! Now it was time for Annabelle! That movie was so scary! It wasn't as bad as conjuring, but it still scared me! After the movie I went back to Dylan's and watched a recording of him after surgery. It was hilarious! He reminded me of a little boy kind of, he is so cute(:

Sunday was a sad day again because I had to leave. All of my family and Dylan watched the second half of conference together and then had lunch. Lunch was pretty good but the chicken was really spicy, it was funny to watch people eat it! I felt bad though because Dylan couldn't really eat the chicken so he just had potatoes and ice cream, he probably was starving! I couldn't get myself to leave, it was so hard! I finally left around 7, I didn't get back until 10!

The other sign says
"Boyfriends are like Trash,
Your roommates shouldn't take them out"
Monday I took my first test for Human Anatomy and Physiology, I got an 84 which is a bit better than I thought I would do! After that I just did homework until FHE. We were getting family pictures done in our tie dye shirts. We were also meeting one of the Bishopric members to talk. They gave us a lesson on making our homes like Zion, they also gave us cookies! After FHE we went to Nielson's to try their snow cones, I didn't even know they had snow cones. They weren't that good, I prefer their concretes. When we went home we were getting a little fed up with all the trash two of our roommates had been leaving around so we made a huge pile of it all and then made posters sort of hinting to "clean up your crap" they are quite hilarious, I will post a picture of one!

Tuesday was a pretty good day me and my Aunt Michelle went for a run and then just hung out until we had to go to lunch with my grandparents and uncle. We went to this Mexican restaurant called Greengos, I'm not the biggest fan of Mexican food, but it wasn't too bad, they had good raspberry lemonade! After Greengo's my grandpa had an eye appointment so me Michelle and Jason all went and walked around the Temple until he was done. I hadn't really been a fan of the Rexburg temple, I didn't think it was that pretty. But now that I actually walked around it and got a closer look, I like it much better!

My new awkward family
Wednesday I donated plasma again, my arm is bruised a little bit, so I am hoping it goes away for when I go to donate on Friday because they don't let you if your arms are bruised! While I was sitting at the Plasma place they turned on Shrek, normally this wouldn't be bad but Amber showed me a video that has ruined Shrek forever! I just couldn't watch it the same! We heard about this free potato bar, so we were of course going to get free food! It was really good considering that it was free! They also gave us ice cream, cookies, and popcorn! I also one a $5 coupon for more ice cream! I think I have received more free stuff here than I have in my whole life, I love it! When we got home there was still a pizza box on the counter from over a week ago, can you guess who it's from? Yes the messy two. We had even asked them many times to throw it out, so i threw it in their room. I don't know if they were too happy about finding it their! But I didn't care because I had just found out the night before that those Dinks ate my Peanut Butter Oreo's, I don't really want to play nice anymore....haha just kidding (: My roommate was telling us we need to watch American Horror Story, so we watched the season premier that was disturbing. I'm not sure if I will watch it again!

Today has been a great day. Me and Amber both don't have class so we have been planning to watch TV all day and eat pizza! Today couldn't have been a more perfect day for us to have off because unfortunately Amber's grandpa died last night ): I woke up this morning and she hadn't slept at all, luckily she finally fell asleep for a little bit, she looked like she needed rest. While she was sleeping I decided to make her muffins to try and cheer her up. We then watched how to train your dragon 2, I like the first one better but it was still good! After that we just watched whatever we could find on TV while I did some homework. Then around lunch I made her the best pizza ever...DiGorno! I'm not the best at comforting people, I never know what to say, so I just feed them to comfort them!

I am so excited for tomorrow, my parents and Dylan are coming up here! I am really excited to see them and show them all around. I really wish my sister and brother in law could come up, but they will have to come some other time!

Thursday, October 2, 2014


Again I apologize for taking a bit to post again, mostly apologizing to you Dylan ;) So Tuesday as always was completely uneventful. I don't have class until 5 so it's the waiting game of what to do until then. I did a bit of my homework but felt completely unmotivated to really do anything so instead I just watched TV all day...exciting live right? After class I came home and watched TV again with my roommates. Around 10 Amber sits up and said "alright we need to get out, what is there to do" so we sat there forever trying to figure out what to do, and of course we haven't a clue what there is. Especially after 10 on a school night in Rexburg, everything starts to shut down by then! So of course we chose to go get ice cream, all my decisions of things to do end up with food of some sort.

We went to go get ice cream at this place called Scoops. I really like this place, one reason is because its freaking cheap, it's only a dollar for every scoop! The other reason I like it is because it's Farr's ice cream from back home! It's not as good because they don't have as many flavors, but they still have a lot, and it was all the best ones! I will definitely be going back there for all my ice cream cravings, which is all the time...(:

Wednesday was a pretty good day. I went and donated plasma, I was there FOREVER. I'm glad I actually passed to be able to donate because last time I tried I was so nervous that they wouldn't let me do it, it was retarded. Actually donating was really cool though! It was really cool to see the tube that took my blood put it in the spinning machine to separate my plasma and then put the rest of my blood back in. I couldn't believe how much plasma they took, it was a huge bottle, and I was on the lowest end of how much they can take! It felt so cool getting it taken though! When they are taking it out my hand would go all numb like when your leg falls asleep or something. When they were putting blood back in I could feel it go all the way down back to my fingers. It reminded me of when me and my sister were in church we would cut circulation off to our hands. It would make it feel numb and then we would pretend that an invisible string was being pulled through our hand when the blood went rushing back into our fingers. It felt like that but more intense, I thought it was pretty cool!

Later that night Megan had heard about a bonfire that was going on and wanted to go, so Amber Ashlee and I tagged along. It was so awkward, we walked up and people just looked at us and then went back to their groups talking. We just stood there and stared at the fire for like 10 mins. Finally we decided to leave and do something else, and guess what we did...GOT ICE CREAM. We went to Walmart and were going to get mint ice cream. This Walmart is really small and doesn't have much in it so there was no mint ice cream! So we got vanilla ice cream and mint Oreo's to make shakes! The shakes were pretty dang good, I sort of feel like a brat because we only made them for me Ashlee Megan and Amber. You could tell that the other two wanted some but we were sort of on edge with them because they never clean up their dishes and one of them owes Ashlee a lot of yeah we just made it for us. We were nice and didn't eat it in front of them though!

That night was another night where we stayed up until two ish talking, but luckily I didn't have class this morning! I leave tomorrow to go back to Utah for the weekend!! I am so excited, it cant come fast enough! Dylan got his wisdom teeth out so I am going to bring him ice cream and keep him company! I can't wait to see his chubby cheeks from surgery!!(:
