Now that I'm all caught up with my summer, I can start catching up with the new school year. I've had so much fun this semester, I'd be so sad if I didn't document it somehow. Since I'm not the best journal keeper (I always loose them before I get half way through them), I use my blog as the next best thing.

One of the most exciting things about this semester is that most of my freshman friends are back from their missions! After two whole years across the world from each other we are finally coming back together. Its been so much fun to reminisce, reconnect, and then create new memories together. 

We got the whole gang together at Zach's house.
I honestly couldn't believe they were sitting on my couch. I was way too excited about it.


The girls and I were also excited to move into our new place at Lanai. It was our freshman year dream to live here and it finally happened. Its our last semester all together as BYU students so we are documenting every second of it. That includes first day of school/church pictures.

The start of a new year also means... COLLEGE FOOTBALL.
I love going to the BYU games. BYU football has been a big part of my life ever since I could remember. Luckily, I was blessed with roommates who feel the same way. This season hasn't been our best, but we've still had so much fun going to the games. My dad came into town a couple weeks ago so I promised I'd watch the game with him. We got to go down on the field before the game and then moved up to our box seats for the game. Being creepily obsessed with the team, I took lots of photos.

Everything else has just been a jumble of good times. I couldn't feel more blessed in my life.

Like for good friends who watch chick flicks with you while giving you a foot massage. Definitely a highlight.
Or friends who pay balloon artists to make you a princess crown.
Or friends who write you nice notes on sundays.
Or friends who get you through scary doctor appointments.
or friends that go on concert dates with you
 (Aimee and I got carded for our first 21+ concert! Not that we would have gotten any drinks anyways)
Ohh and there's those friends that go to LAX games with you. cuties. IMG_5546 IMG_5545
There are also those friends that go to Islamic Art exhibits with you. IMG_5584
which are the same friends who photo bomb your roommate concert pictures. IMG_5612

&& Now that it's fall I can get excited for my top knots and fall coats. It's my favorite time of year. Break out the pumpkin cookies babe.

 But probably the most exciting news of all this month was when Jess came over to tell us she was having a baby GIRL! I really couldn't be more excited. I keep trying to get Jess to name her baby after me, but she isn't having it. IMG_5560 IMG_5591 

Alright fall. lets get this party started. IMG_5571
