My friends and I made some awesome mums to wear!!! Suzanne is married!!!! aaahhhhh!!!!! She and Lyle got married in the San Antonio Temple this past week, and they are cute as ever :) I can't wait until I get married in the Temple to my sweet heart :) Here's some pics from things I've been up to over the summer/recently:

OH. MY. GOODNESS. It has been such a looooooong time!!! I've gotten so many complaints!!! haha. Well... a lot has happened sense my wisdom teeth. Girls camp was wonderful as always. Suzanne got home from her mission- it has been so good to see her again! She is now engaged and getting married in September!!! Yay! It will be the 4th of my sibling's wedding so by now I know exactly what I want for my wedding :) 
This summer I got a job at Subway, just like Suzanne! It has been so much fun and I love saving up for college. Paying more than $3 of babysitting tithing has been so cool too, I feel like I'm now really making a contribution. I've had many neat experiences and fun (or not so fun) people to work with! I love my boss, he's really awesome. That's the most important thing, right? :) I'm planning to keep the job until I go to college, so for another year. Maybe I'll find another subway up in Utah or where ever I go to college!
School is coming soon! I'll be a SENIOR!!!! yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited, this year is going to be lots of fun. All of my family is coming here for Christmas this year so we will all be together again for the first time in forever!
Spencer gets home in less than 2 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!! In 10 days!!!! yay!!!! I'm soooo excited to see him, it has been wayyy too long. Its like getting to know someone all over again, if he has changed as much as I have :) 
I got asked to be the seminary president this year!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited!!!!! Although, I was honestly surprised because I'm NOT a morning person... but I totally love my seminary teacher, he's THE BEST. No joke. And I bet it will help for my BYU application if I'm seminary president and if he'll write me a good report :) We will study the Book Of Mormon this year. 

So, I feel like I should write some things just about me in general... just so I can go back and read it and see what I was like when I was younger... 
So I used to not want to go on a mission at all, but now that the age has changed and because of Suzanne's and Spencer's influence, I am very much open to the idea. I feel like there is a reasonable likelihood. It just depends. Mostly what I feel is right is to prepare to go to the temple. That way, I'll be ready for either a mission or marriage. I can't wait to post stuff about college, then about getting married and then about my future family and kids. It will be so fun!!!
Tonight at mutual, we did a "marriage class" for just the laurels. Some women from the ward joined us and we just kinda had a Q&A session. It was cool to see what kind of things we needed to be aware of and what we needed to prepare for. I loved the advice on what type of things to avoid or just some of the things they had learned. I also love hearing all the stories of dating and how they met, first date/kiss ect. Talking about it just makes me so gitty and excited for the future! But not too soon, of course :)
I'll have to take some more pictures soon before school starts. Ttfn!! :)

My wisdom teeth surgery went well and I am mostly recovered. It was probably one of the worst weeks of my life haha not a fun thing to recover from. I'm just glad its mostly done :) 
I got a job!!! I'm going to be working at Subway! Its the same job Suzanne had when she was in high school! I finished all my training and I'm going to start work soon! 
Young women camp is tomorrow!!! I'm sooooo excited!!!! :D  The only sad thing is that it might be my last year if they don't let me go next year... :'(  that would be so sad. I'll be a YCL 2 over the 3rd years :) Its going to be a blast!
Julie's birthday is on the 10th, she will be 14!!! That's crazy! She will be in high school with me next year! yay! 
OH MY GOSH I'M A SENIOR!!! AT LAST!!!
Suzanne gets home on the 12th!!! yay!!! So pumped to see her again!

Howdy! I got permission to take all of my finals early for school this week instead of next week because I'm getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow!!! I'm so scared! I hope it all goes well. I will have to post a video of me while I'm all loopy from the drugs ;) I'm so glad to have school be over, today was my last day! I've taken my AP test and I don't find out the score until July. I had a job interview last Saturday to work at Subway! The same place Suzanne worked! I got the job-- sorta. It depends on if they still need me when I get back from young women camp, which is the first week of June. I'm so excited! I'm going to be a YCL over the 3rd years! I'm hoping to focus on recovering next week so that I'll be ready for camp. 
And what comes after girls camp???
SUZANNE COMES HOME!!!
I'm sooooo excited! :)
Heather, Melanie, and all the babies are coming here to Texas at the end of June! All the sister's (besides Jenny... we wish she could be here too) will be together! 
Overall, looking forward to a great summer full of relaxing before my senior year :)
