Logan and Anna's Wedding Party

This is a lame post. My blogger upload won't do pictures right now. But a brief update: Logan and Anna are now married and all my siblings in addition to most of their spouses and all of the nieces and nephews made it out for the big event!
We started a great new tradition: the "DOGGiN runs" complete with t-shirts and all. Thanks mom, you're the best! The course was marked with bananas...yes real bananas so if you saw a banana you needed to turn that direction. Needless to say some of us missed a couple of turns. Haha, I'm pretty sure we'll be calling this tradition the banana runs now.
It was so great to see everyone!

Cornbelly's Corn Maze

Last time we went to visit Erin and Ryan (aka babysit Kherington), they mentioned this corn maze and of course they knew about a discount for the tickets :) Michelle happened to be coming down that weekend so we headed to the Cornbelly's Corn Maze with her friend Sharee, Jamie Turner's brothers (Jamie was one of my favorite leaders in Young Womens), and Mandy and her friend Joyce. What a blast. Seriously.

spencer, Me, Michelle, Sharee, Nathan

This is us in the middle of the corn maze....We decided to go without the clues and just guess all the right turns. Bad idea. We thought we were doing super good because we came up to these stairs and thought it was the exit of the corn maze. Wrong. We were pretty much at the furthest point from the exit. But, one plus was that the stairs led up to a bridge so we knew very well how off we were. I admit we kinda cheated getting back. We hopped down under the bridge and made a B-line for the exit...trial or no (mostly no). After cutting through all the corn stalks we were free! In my defense, we were never told not to do that so its not technically cheating. We didn't want to run out of time to do all the other fun stuff :)

This was one of the many attractions...wooden planks to put your head were all over. I forgot to mention that the corn maze was just the biggest thing there...not the best. There were lots of other great things on a grass field outside the corn maze.

Michelle and Sharee, making up for lost time...separated by freshman year at college.

More amazing things that made this my most exciting weekend thus far:
This is the best bike ever. I want one.

It was so fun for me to get to hang out with Michelle! I was home all summer with her, but I didn't feel like I ever got to see her. Between working 45-60 hour weeks and going to Single's Ward things and her trying to get in every last minute with her buddies before college, we didn't have much time together. Anyways, long way to say I missed her and LOVED the corn maze with her :)

Great Day

This fall has been nothing but great so far. I'm loving being back in provo, hanging out with my friends and starting out my new school. This week was super hard with school cause I took my first tests not knowing what to expect. I've been waking up at 6 to get things done before school, mostly continuing my cramming sessions but sometimes going for runs. But now I'm on my weekend cause I don't have school Fridays. My schedule is pretty good, I do start at 8am Mon-Thurs but it hasn't been to bad cause I'm coming from flagging all summer and I had to wake up early for that. Its funny I never thought I'd miss flagging, especially being so happy here, but there are times when i miss those people. Haha, I've been in contact with on of my buddies from work and he assures me all is well. Also my boss randomly called me today and told me he met with the Kokomo residents (the street that I stood at the top of just about the whole time I was on the job). He said they were planning to plant flowers and discussing that...then the residents started asking why I left and how I was doing. He told them I was a good employee but headed back to school. Made my day :) So then my boss, Greg, said that the crew I usually flagged for started saying they missed me too. I'm flattered, these guys may be a little rough around that edges but they are super nice!
Here is me in my glory days, haha. This is from one of the times my mom sent siblings with frozen treats for the crew :) what a great mom! And so nice of Robin and Tricia to come visit too. And yes,I often rocked the ponytails.

BYU football is back..

What a great start we had with Oklahoma..then a bummer with Florida State. Hopefully the rest of our season will be great. I love sitting with a bunch of my friends from freshman year..so great to see them. A lot of us live in the colony together so thats fun too!
First Home game of the season! Florida state...ugh. Fun to be back in the stadium though.

Michelle came to visit! She came to the game with Sharee and my friends :)

Babysitting..love it

Now that Erin and Ryan have a baby and are still living in the area, I get to babysit! Well, i've only done it twice so far but she is adorable. The first time she came over to my place and chilled with me awhile. A couple friends came over and got to try to entertain her...it was funny. Of course we took a stroll in her stroller.

This is time number two. I went up to Lehi with Mandy and Kim to watch Kherington. Once again, we did the stroll around the block. A foolproof method of calming her down :) Erin and Ryan got us some pizza and made peanut butter bars...my FAVORITE!

Days in The Colony

I absolutely LOVE my apartment complex...its called The Colony. First of all, all of my roommates are amazing so that helps tons. Then there is everyone else in the colony that are super nice. We've got a pool that we have definitely gotten the use out of in this first month. Its been a blast!

This is Kim and I on one of our many days at the pool. Too bad its turned from an awesome summer straight to winter :( Too cold for the pool and the hot tub closes in the winter too. Oh well, good days.

Mandy, oh Mandy. I absolutely love this girl. I'm so so glad we're living together, wouldn't have it any other way!

This is the worst part of my semester so far...my printer wouldn't work. I went to Sam's Club and bought a pack for $70 and it still didn't work. So frustrating. Luckily I have and amazing sister and brother-in-law who got a new printer and gave me their old one :) Life is so much better.

This was our first ward activity...the them was 1920's but Kim and I didn't have anything for that. Acacia's costume was AMAZING though. We learned a couple 1920's dances and then had a normal dance party. I had so much fun!
