A Very Unhappy Valley

I have no idea where everyone is but i haven't seen any life for three days now! Ok that is an exaggeration but i have been in my new apartment all by myself for three days. All my roommates brought their stuff and then none of them stayed here. Since school hasn't started and i get lost or stuck in traffic whenever i try and go somewhere, I decided to just stay in my apartment all day. Let me tell you I am so bored of talking to myself! I call my mom every hour just to update her on how i have sat on my bed looking at the ceiling. Its bad, really bad! Luckily right before i went insane i went to UVU with Madison and we attempted to find all of our classes but like i said earlier i get lost every time i leave my apartment so we got lost a couple times. Student and Teachers just watched us and laughed. "Hey thanks for helping us out... we OBVIOUSLY are new here.. but don't worry we will get it!" and we did we figured it out but i would have been nice if someone would have helped us out. Basically I'm just whining but if things don't start to get better its going to be a very unhappy valley.

I just had to share

I made these cute little thank you baskets (with the help of my mom) for the people at work since I quit to move down to school.They are cookies on a stick:) They turned out so cute so i just had to share!

Single Girls Can Craft Too!!

Sometimes, life gets busy and blogging is one of the last things to do on your list! Also sometimes that person is me! Where did July even go?? I have been so busy with work, church and vacationing! Don't get me wrong i love being busy but it can get stressful! Anyways i got a calling in my singles ward and I'm on the  activities committee! I'm specifically in charge of FHE with two others! I love it! I have an amazing committee and we put so much work into making sure FHE goes well, So far so good! I'm constantly trying to come up with fun ideas of things we can do! If you guys have any fun ideas PLEASE feel free to let me know!! Also if you have any fun overnight ideas for my ward you could share those too!!

Alright to explain some of the pictures below...Every 24th of July my dads side of the family goes to my Grandmas cabin and we celebrate!! However we are a little bit extreme to say the least! We always have a different theme for each year and then individual families put on skits, We have parades, costumes and our own outdoor movie on the barn door!! We are spoiled and its fun! Crazy is another word i would use to describe it! This years theme was pow wow. How many people can you say celebrated the 24th pow wow style?? Probably not many! The rest of the pictures are from our Lake Powell Trip, Enjoy!

Married Girls with blogs always do all these cute craft projects for their homes. To say the least I'm a bit jealous!! So look what i made!! Its a cute little earring holder:) My mom, Marissa, Korin and I, all made cute individual ones for each of my Zwahlen cousins for their summer birthdays! Before i made this i just had my earrings in a box and i would only wear a couple pairs because im lazy and i didnt want to search for any others! Problem solved! I'm quite proud!! Yep that's right single girls can craft too!
I might have too many earrings..
Yep we are a little bit strange... Oh well!!
