The Little Green People.

This weekend was absolutely fabulous.  I'll give you a quick glimpse and then I will go into further detail.  On friday all of us girls had a GNO.  A.K.A. No boyz allowed.  A dorm pancake breakfast.  Then, on saturday I had a date to the Snake River and a surprise treat!  Finally, we topped off the weekend with a celebration of Saint Patrick's Day!

Friday.  The rules were no boyz allowed.  This was hard!! Hah, but really.  Starting at three pm, Tara, Kiara,  Layne, and I drove to IF and had some adventures in WalMart.  This included wearing funny hats throughout the store, decided if our purchases were valid and being adult-like about it, finding patriotic "jean" underwear, planning on buying that underwear in July, searching for green tights, trying Jimmy John's for the first time, deciding to be crafty and travel to JoAnn's, and the best part of IF buying crazy straws for a dollar and wearing them in public.  After these journeyings we traveled back the long, scenic way to the burg and painted our nails green, made St. Patty's Day earrings out of buttons, took a power nap, and then traveled to the dollar theatre for a 9:40 viewing of Les Miserables because curfew was at 1!  Haha, #RexburgProblems.  The night was loads of fun and it didn't stop at 1 am.  We went back, played the true laugh test, played the ha ha game, listened to music, and did face masks.  It was absolutely splendid, there were many many laughs, and lots of fun memories made.

On saturday morning our dorm had a pancake breakfast party.  It was delicious.  There was peanut butter, jam, syrup, bananas, marshmallows, sprinkles, chocolate chips, strawberries, whipped cream---the whole shabam!  It was absolutely tasty and absolutely free!  Then around one Jacob picked me up and we drove up to St. Anthony to go to a park near the snake river for our picnic date.  It was super pretty and it even had a little bit of sand creating a fake beach.  It was absolutely divine, full of nutella, full of mexican sauce, and full of tortillas.  We had a wonderful time just chatting, laughing, eating food, and picnic-ing.  I loved that day.  After our picnic, we went to the ward social where there weren't a whole lot of people, mainly just our friend and there was PLENTY of leftover food.  Around this time it was 8 pm and Jacob took me to get a Shamrock Shake!  I was ecstatic to take part of this tradition that Mother and I usually do!  But, this shake gave me SO much energy and I literally was laughing like a maniac rolling on the floor when we got back before I finished up some homework and took some tests.  I'm glad I still have some friends after they so me literally go psycho after the sugar.  It was awesome.  Oh, speaking of sugar, earlier this week we all had a Pi Day party, it was absolutely perfect, tons of fun, tons of food, and tons of happiness.

Then, on Sunday we celebrated Saint Patty's Day the right way!  We woke up to Leprechauns having attacked our shoes who patiently waited for them.  Then we attended church in festive green outfits.  I have to say I was quite pleased by the wards eagerness to wear green.  Afterwards, I did some homework.  Hey, I have to do it everyday it seems like.  Finally, the dinner began.  The boys Jacob and Zach made us homemade hamburgers, there were green beans, corn, mashed potatoes, nine loaves of homemade bread, free baguettes, kool-aid and more!  It was also my FHE brother Brandon's birthday so his mom shipped him a "party in a box" which included decorations and lots of things to celebrate with.  After the dinner we rushed to the ward fireside.  It was full of insights and a good place to be.  After that we made Brandon a funfetti cake with green frosting.  Before we ate the cake we watched a classic: The Sandlot.  What a great day it was.  Green, birthday candles, The Sandlot, and people that I love.

Now, it is the start of a new crazy, super busy, hectic, struggle-full week.  I'm excited for this semester to be over so that I can start my new classes that I have signed up for.  I'm anxiously waiting for it to be constantly above 40 degrees.  I am looking forward to all the memories to made with the new semester but saddened to say goodbye to my friends on the other track systems.

Well, that's all for now, folks!

I hope you enjoyed your stay!
