New Week  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

so, I have been so busy at work lately I haven't had time to write the comings and goings in my life. I used to live in Tooele with my parents, and never once was I as busy as I am right now. There is just so much going on in my life it's hard to think about. I have Institute on Wednesdays, Thursday is Volleyball for both my stake and my old singles ward. Monday nights are family home evening nights, Sunday nights are game nights with the ward which my room mate and I often host. Friday nights friends come over because they know I won't turn them away. so, really the only nights I get to myself are Tuesday and Saturday. Even then, that rarely happens too. It's not that I'm frustrated or annoyed, it's just hard to imagine that this is all possible.

Anyways, Monday was really cool. It was our ward Halloween party, and let me just tell you, it was a Blast! I of course got there at 3 to help decorate because I'm on the activities comittee. Wow, it was so amazing! We had pumpkin carving, dancing, tons of food, and my favorite the pie throwing. it was just so much fun watching that...especially everytime everyone got hit in the face, I lucked out...yaya! Anyways, my pumpkin won for most creative. I gave mine green hair because I used the green frosting on it. I was just trying to be creative, and it worked...haha! I'll get a pic of it and add it later this week. Needless to say that even though this party went well, I was so exhausted and tired by the end of the night I could barely walk. I felt like I was ancient, and I could barely walk it hurt so bad. Funny thing though about the party, I have a fog machine that I brought in. I plugged it in, and it was only on for 2 minutes, and the fire alarm went off. I unplugged it and took it outside, but we couldn't get the fire alarm off. Then somehow they figured out how to silence the sound, but the lights kept flashing. It worked great in the dance room, because we needed a strobe light..haha! Either way we couldn't turn it off completely and had to leave it for the people in the morning to figure out. Kinda funny huh?

Anyways, so that's about it...Halloween is on Friday, and I've got an excellent halloween costume idea. My hope is that it works...we'll see...Until then...tata!

So, I got food poisoning over the weekend. It was Horrible, both my room mate and I were miserable. We decided it was the mac and cheese we ate. Oh well, it's over now and I feel Way better.

So, I'm reading this book called Brisingr (Pronounced Brising-gur)It's awesome! It's the 3rd book to the Eragon series. The movie was stupid, but the books are amazing. It almost reminds me of Lord of the Rings, but it has it's own concept. If you get a chance to read these books I HIGHLY recommend it. They are big books but well worth the read.

So, I was talking to a friend the other day, he's samoan. Well, he stopped off at a gas station in texas on his way home with his Cousin. They were walking around looking at stuff, now my friend is a big guy. Well, he saw this weird food and wasn't sure what it was, so he asked the teller what it was. The only thing the guy said to him was "food very good, you buy or put back!" (In an asian tone). Okay, so they thought he was joking or thought they were in a movie. The guy thought they were going to rob him or something. So, rather than buy something they walked out. So now, every time I talk to him or anyone else that knows the story I say "You Buy or Put back" (really fast).

So, I'm really excited. The CEO of our company decided to throw his own personal party at Salt Air. He's having Jason Mraz play, and we all get to go for free. On top of that he's treating everyone to dinner as well. So, we get free food and an awesome concert on top of that. I thought it was pretty cool. The concert is on the 28th or 29th of October. I'm so Stoked!

So, that's been me this week, I awesome right!? J/K

Love you all!


Boss's Day  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

So, today is boss's day, and we decorated my bosses desk today. Needless to say she was really shocked when she walked in to see this:

Mary Boss Day 1

Yeah, I was crazy. You can't see it, but there are streamers hanging from the ceiling, and little notes inside some of the balloons. I almost feel bad for her, but then she's a good boss so I guess I do. Wait til next week when I show you pictures of our plans to decorate our aisle for Halloween. I came up with the plans for it. We'll see how it goes down or if it will. Whatever happens I'll show you the after effects.

So, things have been really tough, but I've got some really wonderful people in my life who are so supportive and kind. They understand that while I'm not perfect I try to be, and isn't that what we're supposed to be in life? Supportive, understanding, forgiving? I feel like I have a lot of forgiveness to give to others, and I'm trying very hard. While I don't expect anyone to ever forgive me, I would hope that that they would just as I am trying right now to forgive. So, that's the emotional side of my life.

Now on to more funny stuff in my life....

You know you're a blonde when....

Twice you ask someone to hand you something you're looking for, and it's right infront of your face. Yesterday I had this card I was making, and I asked my room mate to hand it to me. She just looked at me like I had grown an extra nose or something cause it was right by my hand. Then after I did that...I needed the glue, and asked her to hand it to me. Again, the glue was right in front of me. Well, she had no words after that...I left her speechless. I think I was just tired or something. However, I can't make an excuse for that, when there is no excuse after the first time you do it.

So, that's been my life up to this point. Just wait...there is always more to come, even stranger things have happened.

General Conference  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

This last weekend was Really awesome. It was general conference weekend, and my ward was asked to sing at temple square. My what an amazing experience, it was hard to stand out there for 2 hours singing the entire time. I lost my voice...and now have a cold. Despite that, I think it was worth it to do it, because the members of the church were so appreciative of us. We sang in harmony with each other because we seperated into parts, and it just sounded SO cool! Anyways, it was definitely worth it to go, and being able to sit in the conference center with President Monson not far from you is pretty amazing!

That's about it from me this week, nothing really exciting going on other than that.
