Yes, I am finally writing a new post! Its been months and I'm sorry. Either I was just lazy, I really didn't have anything exciting happening but I finally have something to talk about! So, Erica a girl I work with has a sweet condo on 800 n in orem. And I heard that she was looking for a roommate. So, I asked her about it and of course she said yes I could move in if I wanted too. So, I thought about it and decided it was time again to move out of the parentals house. I moved in yesterday and spent all day walking up the 4 flights of stairs with all my stuff. Wow did I get a work out. I was so tired it sounded like I had just run a marathon. but I had only gone up those stairs like 10 times. haha Anyway I'm all settled in now and the condo is decorated so cute. I love how clean it is. Here are some pics of my new place.

Hawaii was an amazing place. The people are so nice and everything is so green and pretty. It is what they say a paradise! I didn't want to come home. The jetlag isn't very fun but so worth it.
Pearl Harbor was so neat to see. It's amazing to think that this beautiful calm place was under so much havoc. Its a real eye opener to see what people went through.
The beaches were amazing. We traveled to the north shore of the island and on our way we stopped at a few beaches and there was no one on them except me and my mom. It was awesome to have the whole beach to ourselves.
Me and my mom hiked Diamond Head which is a huge dorment volcano. It was quite a hike let me tell you but totally worth it. The view was fantastic.
Here are a bunch of other fun pictures of the island!

This weekend me and Megan decided that we needed a little vacation. We decided to go to my cabin for the weekend. And can I say it was amazing! We got to do anything we wanted. First we read books, watched movies, slept and slept some more! It was fantastic. We also played a sweet game of Bingo and won a prize! The prize was fake jewelry, and of course we had to try it on. We went into town and found this little old play town and took some pictures. We also went to this little pastry store and bought a ton of food. which by the way was incredible. I think I ate more sugar this weekend than I have in years. It was so nice to be away from all the chaos in our lives. It was so quiet up there in the mountains and the weather was the best.
We got creative with our new jewelry! The braclets didn't fit our wrists so they got put on our ears! haha

Me and my friend Megan and the fam all went to the Osmond concert at the conference center and it was amazing. I'm so glad we got to go. The music was so entertaining and they were really funny. President Monson and President Uchtdorf came and the whole audience stood up and it was dead silent in that building with like 22,000 people. It was incredible. The concert was so fun and I even watched the rebroadcast of it because it was so great! ha

Ashley started hair school at the beginning of June and is doing great. I got to be her dummy for hair color and She did a great job. My hair is a lot blonder! But, it looks good. While I was at her school she did the front and sides of my hair but ran out of time to do the back because I had to go to work. So, to make a long story short we had to finish at my parents house which we had tons of fun doing.

My first race was amazing! I did the 5k on the fourth of July at 7am. My goal was to finish within an hour and I finished in 30 min and 54 sec. I came in 29th in my division out of 70 So, that also made me so happy. Now I wake up every morning at 4:30am to go run before work. It's alot easier to run in the morning than at night since I'm so tired at night.
I run my half marathon on August 23rd in Park City! I'm way excited.
