This year needs to slow down!!!

I can't believe it's already the middle of July! What is happening to 2008?! I have really been slacking off on my blog posts, although I'm not sure how many people actually read my blog, so I'm not sure that many people really care. Life has been really good lately, with lots going on. It's interesting to sit back and look at life and where it takes you and the experiences we each have. Here's a little catch-up of the last few weeks!

Tomorrow, I'm moving into my new place! Ok - so I'm going to get the key and do all the check-in stuff. Saturday is the real moving day! I found a cute little one bedroom place - newly remodeled, in the area I wanted! I'm really excited to finally have my 'own' place! Although... I don't own any furniture (besides my bedroom stuff), so I have lots of stuff to buy in the next few weeks! And it's amazing how much STUFF I have! This is the longest that I've lived in one place since I moved out of my parents house - 14 months! I've managed to accumulate quite a bit of stuff in those last 14 months. And unlike when I lived in Logan, I can't easily store stuff at my parents house anymore! But I have some friends coming to help with the moving on Saturday, so I have until then to get everything (or most everything) in boxes!

This past weekend, my friend Megan and I went up to Seattle! She has a friend who is doing an internship up there, so we visited him, and spend Saturday playing in Seattle with him and 2 of his friends... more pictures to come!

Other things going on.... This next weekend (July 26th and 27th) is our multi-regional YSA Summer Conference. There is about 1200 YSA that will be coming, but luckily enough, I don't have nearly as much responsibility as I did for the Winter Conference! And then August 7-9 is our Ward Campout! I'm really excited, although I've never planned a camping trip for 30+ people! It should be interesting! And there's always plenty of other things going on each weekend - people having get-togethers, BBQ's, things happening downtown, outdoor movies and concerts. All sorts of fun and exciting stuff!

I chopped my hair off - about 9 inches. I don't really like the cut, but I do like the color. I'm going in at the end of the month for a trim, and hopefully a style I'll like more! This is not a very good picture at all, but you get the idea! I'll probably keep it short for a few more cuts, then grow it out a little bit. Who knows!!

I'm not entirely sure why I'm posting these - maybe just to see if this link works... but about a month ago, my friend (Andrew) took these pictures of a friend (Matt) and I to model the shirts for his music magazine - Minute Morning. Matt and I had a blast, and were laughing during about 90% of the pictures. I'm not sure if Andrew got many good ones that he could use, but Matt and I sure had a good time! Anyway, someone who doesn't have Facebook should let me know if this link really works :)


OK - that's all for now! Time to go home and do some more packing and cleaning!
