Sarah is 19!!!!

So, my two best friends, Laura and Sarah, have the same birthday, which is just weird. Laura is in Wyoming so I send her a fabulous package of goodness haha.
Sarah, though, since she was here, we had a little day of surprises for her. The night before, Jessi told her that she had to set up for a track meet the next day (Sarah's birthday) and she didnt know how long it would take so she didnt know if we would all be able to hang out or anything. Muhahahaha. Jessi and I had been planning this fabulous birthday for a good week or so....... Sarah totally believe Jessi and was so bummed thinking that it would just be another lame birthday. So we go through the day, nothing spectacular, just a quiz in econ and Sarah and I come back to my place and jsut kinda chill and watch tv. Then, being so sneaky, I told Sarah I was going to take a nap cause I had a headache and no one else was here so she just went upstairs being bummed that no one wanted to do anything for her. I had to run to the store to get frosting for her cake because we forgot to get some ha. Sarah totally saw me there!!!! It was terrible but she didn't think too much about it, thank goodness. So I get home, make her cake, and Megan and I start putting up balloons and streamers to make it look kinda festive. I told Sarah she wasn't allowed to make any plans for the night becasue I wanted to take her somewhere but that was all she got. So after setting up our apartment and what not, I go up to get her and she comes walking down our hall which surprised us and ruined everything.. kinda. The plan was to take her out to dinner (me Jessi, Megan, and Alli). It all ended up working our anyway, but I blindfolded her and walked her to me car - she didnt know the others were coming but she suspected when she thought she heard my car door open =/. So we get in the car, she is still blindfolded, and after a few minutes of driving, I had her convinced that we were not where she thought we were and she no longer thought anyone else was in the car because they were being SO quiet it was crazy. We pull into Chili's and take off the blindfold and she was so shocked that they were in the car! Yes it worked!! =] So we hang out, waiting for a table, meanwhile, there is a crazy guy on the sidewalk dancing in a statue of liberty costume for money and we convinced Sarah to go and dance with him hahahah. Megan has is all on film and I got a couple of pictures. As soon as Sarah went up to him he just stopped dancing and stood there awkwardly. He was so funny. What made it even better was that like half the resturant could see what was going on and they were all watching. It was awesome. Then, we had this crazy waiter who just made me laugh. Everytime we would say something about him he would just happen to walk up right then and there! It was crazy. He brought a free chocolate molten cake that was devoured in 3 minutes flat by us. Gooooood stuff. Then, Sarah thought the night was over and she was satisfied becasue we surprised her with dinner. Little does she know it is just the beginning! We come back to my place and Jessi, Megan, and Alli go in ahead of us... and when Sarah and I walk in all the lights are off so I flip them on and the three of them had hid under the bar and then popped up yelling surprise!!! to a decorated apartment. Sarah was so shocked it just made me laugh. Then we just kinda hung out and looked through the bridal magizine I got Sarah becasue she loves them. Then, people come over! Yes, we planned it. Yet again, Sarah had no idea. Jessi and I just rock at this surprise business =]We played ultimate spoons, and did some other stuff then decided to play hide n seek in the dark again becasue it is so fun in our small apartment with lots of people. In the middle of all our randomness and crazy fun-ness, Jessi and I sneak into Alli's room to light candles for the birthday cake that Sarah doesnt know about and Megan goes out and turns all the lights off so everyone is very confused ha. As soon as I came out with the cake Sarah just about died. I think her birthday was more surprises than she has ever had. Everyone sang to her and she just loved it. We continued to have quiet the adventureous night. It was so much fun, and a success if I do say so myself. =]
Saturday rolls around and I felt dead from the day before. But, we went to the 10pm basketball game anyway. I just love Aggie basketball. It is so amazing. On our way home, we were walking through the cemetary (just after midnight) and this car starts driving towards us and Sarah totally thought it was the cops so we just book it to the street only to find out it wasn't a cop haha. Oh well. It made for a funny story. Then we stayed up till about 3am watching Star Trek. Ha it was such a crazy fun weekend I loved it. I love my friends so much, they are amazing. Here are a few pictures from the brithdayness.....

Yes, we made jello shots of goodness and then ended up not even using them because a ton of random people came that we didnt even know.


This picture is probably one of my favorites. Sarah had no idea what was going on and then there were frolfers cracking up and confusing her even more hahaha.

Walking up to Mr. Liberty.

Ya, she is cool. The guy stood in this position for quite awhile.

Meg and Alli muchin on the chips and salsa waitin for our food at Chili's!

Loooooove them! <3

Checkin out the new bridal magizine

We sang Sarah the Happy Birthday song from Build-a-Bear. It was legit. haha.

Her new man that grows..... her Visiting Teachers gave it to her haha

Growing man!

Surprised by the cake

She definitely failed at blowing them all out on the first try ha

Good times. There were a ton more people there than this though.

New Goal

Okay, I have decided I have a new goal.... to try to write on this darn thing four times a week. I am terrible! Haha. So let me fill you in (and remind myself) of some of the happenings in my life these days in good old Logan, Utah!
Here in 104, we love strawberry milkshakes. It is always a bad thing if I make them with Jessi and Sarah around becasue we get CRAZY! So, the other day, we decided we wanted some so I made them and Megan and Alli were talking and were like, "wouldn't it be so funny if when you turned on the blender it all came out the top??" just jokingly of course, but sure enough, i had a problem. I had poured it into the cups and went to unplug the blender and out of no where my cup just falls. it hit the ground so hard it went EVERYWHERE, literally everywhere. On three walls, the stove, over AND under the stove light, up to the cieling, all over the ground, everywhere. I was still finding spots three days later. It was pretty much rediculous. Needless to say, I didn't get my milkshake that day and I continued to have horrible luck in the kitchen all week. Story of my life haha. Here are a couple of pictures of proof.....

Stupid milkshakes.....
New adventure.... so one night, me, Sarah, Jessi, and Chelsey decided it would be brilliant to go get cookie dough, vanilla coke, and ice cream.... and we were already all super hyper. It was quite the night of laughter.... and I don't really even remember why everything was so funny but it was great. I discovered that I am EXTREMELY OCD when it comes to eating ice cream out of the carton. Don't mess with my ice cream, just ask Jessi, bad things happen.

Jessi tried to dig a lake to the bottom of the carton and when I noticed I about had a heartattack. The ice cream has to stay in an even layer when its being eaten of it drives me insane. haha. wierd I know.

This is Sarah and Jessi doing something from Avatar and me in the corner dying of laughter becasue of that and something that had just happened previously but I can't remember what.

I just LOVE them. Seriously my best friends here. I don't know what I would do with out the most amazing roommate ever and such an amazing friend (who is about to become a new roommate!! =])

And then there is Chelsey.... I love her. She is so rediculiuosly funny, I am so glad she is in my apartment too =]
Needless to say, that was quite the adventurous night. I love those girls oh so much. =]

Here's to nothin'

Well, yes, I have given into the pressure of getting a blog. Let's just see how many college adventures and happenings I can fit into one website shall we? Why not start with today.... Sometimes I wonder why on earth I ever ride the campus bus in the middle of the day, especially after econ. It's is torture and basically just awkward beyond belief. I often ask myself how so many people can fit on an already full bus. I swear, everytime the bus pulls up and it is full, at least 15 more people squeeze their way on; today was no exception. As we waited in the bitter cold of good ol' Logan, Utah, the bus sat at the stop before ours for nearly 10 minutes as people piled on. As it pulled away, another bus pulled up behind it, which is odd becasue they are never right next to each other. As the first bus proceeded to pull up to our stop, of course it was full, but we piled on anyway, being shoved, literally, by the driver to keep moving back. Sure enough, at least 15 people go on. As Sarah, Derek, Chad, and I tried to stay in one place and hold on becasue the driver was a crazy one, moments of laughter filled the bus partly becasue we were literally inches from each others faces and awkwardly close to strangers. I swear, Sarah needs to grow a few inches or we will all fall over from her falls one of these days. ;) Needless to say, it was uncomfortable, yet highly entertaining and college tends to be these days. Much to my surprise, one of my AMAZING roommates had made me lunch when I came home =] I sure do live with truly amazing girls. They make sure I get my homework done when I definitely do not want to, like tonight. Then there is econ, which is always a hoot. Our professor definitely tries to hard to be funny, but a lot of the time it pays off. Some day I might just fall and get trampled becasue I always forget that there are steps next to the chairs. It is quite the class. After an epic adventure on the bus, I found I had TWO letters in the mail today. Yes, two. I felt so loved. :) They made my day. Missionaries and just so amazing. After much of a boring afternoon avoiding homework like the plague, Megan and I ventured into the cold to go to Walmart and Lee's to begin my homework. Yes, I had to measure the height of water fountains and bathroom sinks, mirrors, and doors. It was quite interesting and I had many off looks, especially from employees. Let's just say that 18 credits sure does keep me busy. Along with being blessed with amazing roommates, I have some of the most amazing friends known to earth. Even from Wyoming, Laura still seems to be just a short drive away and she still keeps helping me with my homework. I definitely can't wait for Spring Break when she comes to Utah to party it up! =] Sarah Day, how I just love this girl. She can make me laugh all day any day. She is amazing beyond belief and she such an amazing friend and example to me. Funny thing... Laura and Sarah are my two best friends and they have the same birthday ha. Crazy. Then there is Bekah. I do not know what I would do without her even though she lives in Provo. We tell each other pretty much everything and hanging out with her on the weekends I am down there is just amazing because I don't have to ever worry about anything and she always has an answer to any and all my problems, even the stupidest and craziest ones ha. Then there is of course, my mother, who I love more than anyone. I miss her so much and love every conversation I have with her and every chance I get to call her. I can't wait till this summer when I get to go home and spend more time with her. Colorado just sounds amazing right now.
Philosophy calls, yet again, because this stupid paper will not go away so I must finish. But, before I do, here are a few photos to bein this journey of blogging of the first few weeks of a new semester.....
So the first two are from last semester but I just love them. Sarah, me, Jessi, and Megan gettin ready for some delicious A&W burgers on Halloween.
I just love her. She is so much fun and hilarious.

In January, we spent a night down at Alli's house because we had a long weekend.... Jessi's cookies are the best I have ever had.

Yah, we had an adventure in the snow and yes I was wearing shorts while tackleing people and having a party.

Lovingly, Lindsay
