summer, so far

So, for all of my 2 friends that read my blog, i thought i would update things on my page a little bit- just to see if you're paying attention :)
Here goes. My summer has been pretty good so far. I've actually done a fair amount of things in the month that i have been home (not to mention the california trip and some fun times with friends while still in provo). I've been to canada where i got to go 4 wheeling, see my cousin Leif get married, go boating, to a bonfire and much more while visiting with lots of family and making new friends. (sorry dunno how to rotate pics but thought you'd like one of leif kissing ;) ) and that's a pic of our farm wayyyy off in the background.

Ialso have been able to go on a couple of hikes both with my family (holly, you would love the 14 mile hike i went on with my family. It was just a little ways past multnomah falls and it had some amazing waterfalls, views and so much greenery), and also on a couple of little hikes with my friends.

Along with all of this, I've learned the amazingly difficult (not really...) skill of tye dying (never sure if i spell that right), have revisited my youth by rollerblading, going on walks, and reading embarrassing old junior high notes with friends. Btw, one of my friends thinks that goudy is so attractive, and so i'm gonna try and get her to come visit us next year so she can meet him- they might get along pretty well surprisingly haha!

Oh... and how could i forget, i'm working close to 40 hours a week in the 4 days a week our office is open... that's a LOT! I'm working on assisting more, and as weird as it might be, the thing i love doing the most is pouring up impressions and making night guards or retainers. oh, and i think i'm gonna get my very own scrubs soon so i can fit in better :)
Its definately been weird being home, especially since most of my friends who have been at oregon schools have just finished school this past week, so i havent had too many people around to hang out with. plus, a lot of them have changed quite a bit, and i'm realizing i've changed a bit as well. I never thought i'd be saying this, but i miss provo! i miss all of my friends from there, the ward, and its just not quite as.. Unique as portland is. i saw a man dressed up as a REALLY ugly woman the other day and was a little caught off guard lol! but i'm looking forward to being back there as odd as that might seem, too bad there's still like 2 1/2 months til then..

But there ya go. the last month or so in a nutshell so that my comments of "i'll update it more once we're all apart" can be true. Love you allllll
PS i'm still trying to figure this whole blog thing out so sorry..

Thanksgiving Break!!

So I was able to go home over thanksgiving break, which was amazing and came at the best time it possibly could! I was definately needing to go home and see my family for awhile. But while I was home, we did some impromtu family pictures down by the Willamette River (the location fit our family pretty well). I felt so short next to all of my younger brothers, they're growing up so fast and even Austin's going to pass me up pretty shortly! All in all, it was a great trip, and way nice to be home!
