Photo Tag

My friend Alycia tagged me and since I do not keep files of pictures on the computer I improvised and found pictures in a folder and did it that way.

Here are the instructions:

1. Go to My Documents/My Pictures
2. Go to the 6th File Folder
3. Go to the sixth picture
4. Blog About It
5. Tag 6 people to do the same.

This was not the sixth picture in the folder but I do not have permission to use number 6 and the date on this picture is not right considering this says it was March of 2007 and he was still in high school at that time. This is my brother and me and the MTC on July 9, 2008. We went down to drop him off and it reminded me of everything that went on in the MTC when I was there. There were so many good times. The foyer that we are standing in there is where I spent part of a night when I was having a reaction to some medicine. There was a couch there that I rested one with my two companions while I was being observed. My mind wandered as we went down the hall and I saw the big map, the cafeteria, and sat in the room where we would have our large group meetings. It also reminded me of the day that I went into the MTC. My mom was in pain because of a recent surgery. I goodbyes were short and sweet. I was the first missionary out of that room. I learned so much during the time I was there learning more about the gospel and learning how to speak Spanish. It is definitely something I will always remember. I know that Brady... I mean Elder Parkin will always remember it too. He is truly an example to me and I am so glad that he made the decision to serve a mission.

I guess now it is my turn to tag people. I am not good at telling people what to do so I will make this a generalized tag. Anyone who reads this and has or has not done this is who I will tag. If you want to do it...Great. If not...that is fine too. Have A Great Day!

The Big Two!!!

I apologize for not having pictures, but in my rush to get packed and leave town, I forgot my camera and also the gift that I was going to give. Today is my nephew, Tanner's, birthday. He is two years old and such a cute kid. I am not lying. I got to spend Saturday with him. We had a little party for him and it was soooooo fun. I called today to talk to my sister and got to talk to him a little bit. I told him happy birthday and his response was an attempt at saying happy birthday back with cookie in his mouth. It was great. Happy Birthday Tanner! Hope you have a great year.

My Shopping Adventures

On Friday night, a couple of friends and I decided to go shopping in Idaho Falls. Before I continue there are a few things to note:
1. I am not a huge fan of shopping, although I can tolerate it when it is with people that I like.
2. I hate spending money. I am pretty frugal with money and spending it on myself.
3. When I do go shopping, I only buy things that are good deals and that are approved by the people I am with. I know that sounds odd, but that is how I am.

To continue on with the story. We spent a while at one store (no names mentioned) that was pretty expensive. I could not bring myself to buy anything there. I would rather shop at a cheaper department store or something. We decided to go to Old Navy to see what they had. I shop in the little girls section because that is what fits me the best. Can I help it if I am small? Anyway, my friends kept throwing clothes at me saying that I needed to try this and that on. I ended up trying on a couple of things and these are the things that I ended up with. They were both cheap and they are both not things that I would usually wear.
