Halloween pictures!

So, for Halloween Brian and I decided to be super geeky nerds. Considering we already both study too much and actually are nerds, it wasn't that hard to do. It was lots of fun though! I love Halloween!!!

So, has really changed and, in my opinion, is now a seriously sweet website! It is busting with good information and testimonies of Mormons everywhere! I was seriously missing my mission the other week (it happens often) and I was trying to think of other ways that I could be a missionary. Well, I wandered onto and found a way to share my testimony with lots of people! I have a link on this blog that says "I believe." By clicking on it it will take you to the profile I made about some of my experiences in church. I encourage everyone to make a profile and spread your testimony in yet another way :). If you don't want to click on the link, you can click here to get to it. 

I may not be a full time missionary anymore like in this photo, but I can still be a missionary!!

hey guess what... yesterday it

SNOWED! Can you believe it?! It is officially winter....How do I know? Well, I wake up and it is dark, it is nearly dark by the time I come home from school, I am starting to give in to my hot chocolate cravings, and the big fluffy socks are out of storage.... oh yeah, and the ground is white. I have decided to have an attitude adjustment and really try and embrace this cold weather and frozen white fun - after all, I am going to have to live with it for at least 4 months, so it'd be best to enjoy it at least a little.

I haven't done an update in a while... so here you go!
*I finished the first part of labor and delivery and am now going back to pediatrics tomorrow. Oh how I love both of them - I don't want this semester to end! It is so great to help women on their journey to become moms and then help babies have the best introduction to the world and first few days ever! Oh the babies are so cute :)
*The rest of school is going well too - I am learning a TON in Isaiah and had to regurgitate that knowledge on a test Monday night - 30 short answer and a 3 page essay... ewwww. But, it was a good learning experience at least
*We had a nursing conference on Monday and we got free food and free stuff all for just sitting around in a skirt and listening to people talk about their nursing research! My personal favorite souvenir is a t-shirt that says "I <3 Old People." Classic.
*Halloween is this weekend and I STILL don't know what I am going to be - any suggestions? eh? eh?
*I got to carve pumpkins with my favorite girl ever on Friday night! Andrea Gardner, you are the best.
*Did I mention it snowed?
*my parents are coming up to Utah for Thanksgiving - woot woot! Brian and I are going to go up with them to Cache Valley to spend some time with grandma and gramps :)
*I GOT ACCEPTED TO GO TO GHANA IN THE SPRING FOR NURSING! Yeaaaaah! Should be a great adventure :)

Well, I should be studying - so my update will have to stop here... maybe you'll get more later!

spirituality at the gym? why yes.

Halloween reminds me a lot of Zipper - this is just one of her 5+ Halloween costumes. What a CUTIE! I miss that girl.
I made time to work out this morning for the first time in weeks and it FELT SO GOOD! I need to get back into good habits... especially with winter (and holidays) coming soon. I actually read the Ensign while I was doing the elliptical machine today and really found that it made the time go by faster. I was reading about temples and was happy that I was taking a little bit of time to work on my earthly temple. I also read some for my History of Creativity class about the early Christian church, the Nicean Creed (what was with that, anyway?!), and how crazy confused all of Christ's doctrines got back it the day. I am so grateful for the Restoration and for the clear doctrine we have received and continue to receive. I can hardly wait for the conference edition of the Ensign to come out - I think it will be my new gym buddy :).

I LOVE FALL! It is currently my favorite season... I got into my car today after shopping at a farmer's market and saw that there were crunchy leaves all over the rug of my car. Was I upset? Noooo! I happily crunched them further into my rug. That may sound messy and weird, but trust me - crunching leave is SO satisfying! I am loving the crisp morning air, riding my bike and feeling my nose get tingly and cold, putting on my scarves and mittens, and cuddling up with blankets while I study. Now, if it could just stay this cool and not become FREEZING like it always does here in Utah, I would be one happy girl. But for now, I am one happy girl and I am LOVING Fall!

General Conference is the coolest! I love listening to the prophet and other leaders of our church speak about things that are pertinent to me and the world that I am living in. Sometimes I think I forget what a unique thing it really is to have a real living prophet here on the earth that we can receive guidance and direction from in a world that is so crazy and ever changing! I know that if we follow the counsel we received today and what we will tomorrow, our lives will be blessed and we will be given more strength to face whatever is coming our way in the future - Yay for conference!
