Last weekend some girls off my team and myself went and saw Footloose. To be honest, I wasn't that excited to see it but what do ya know... I LOVED IT!!! Like really, it was so good. And for those who haven't seen it, go see it. Now. Haha well, maybe not now but definitely soon! Maybe it's just me but I think that the movie was a million times better because of Kenny Wormald a.k.a. Ren MacCormick! Gosh he is so freaking hot I can't even stand it. I mean look at him, ah!! I want him.So Footloose is a definite must see.
So since we are talking about Footloose, I have been watching the show The Sing-Off on NBC where there's this group from BYU called Vocal Point. It's an all guy group and if you haven't watched The Sing-Off it's basically all acopella! (I think I spelled that right) Butttttttttt, here's a video of their performance from Monday where they sang Footloose.
They are pretty dang good.

Can you believe it's already October? I can't. I feel like it was just the beginning of the year, but nope. Halloween is just around the corner! Time just keeps flying by and I feel like I am just non-stop going. For reals.
Let me just tell you, I am staying busy. Very very busy. I'm taking 16 credit hours plus an online photography workshop. Then there's volleyball. Oh volleyball... definitely starting to drain everything out of me. But on the plus side, we are 15-2! Our only two losses are from EA (Eastern Arizona College). Dumb Eastern. We totally could have taken them. Now on a not so happy note, we only have 7 games left. This season seriously has gone by so fast! Maybe a little too fast...it makes me so sad to think that this could be my last season playing. I better not think about it or I most likely will become depressed.
Also, my BYU application is in! Yay! Definitely a little stressful and frustrating at some moments but I'm grateful for the people who helped me get to where I am and support me in my decision. So for now, we wait. Everything is just all up in the air at this moment. I will have to make a decision once I know if I got accepted. There is so much I can do! Haha it's all so exciting yet so nerve raking. I can't even explain. You can say I'm a bit overwhelmed.

Last night I had a few girls off my team over and I decided I was going to make some dessert for us to eat while we watch movies. Well I made us some cinnamon roll cake and you bet it tastes just as great as it sounds. Plus! It is super easy to make. Especially coming from me, the only person on this Earth that can't cook to save her life, I did a darn good job! With moving out within my grasp I realized I won't have mommy there to cook me dinner anymore. Sooo, with that I am definitely going to try and fend for myself starting by making my family dinner from here on out! So today, for Sunday dinner I made Queso Chicken Pasta. At first I was worried it was going to be too spicy for my liking since I'm a complete wimp with hot/spicy food but it wasn't bad at all! It was so good! Like really good, and let me tell you, I am quite proud of myself! I definitely feel accomplished:)
(I didn't take these pictures though) Here's where you can find the recipes:

P.S. My team, ya...us girls over at CGCC...you know, those really cute volleyball players...yeah they just so happen to be 12-1!!! Sooo sick.

What a weekend...
My volleyball team flew up to Colorado this past weekend to play in a tournament in Lamar, CO. It's this little nothing-of-a-town place 3 hours out of Denver. So basically we hopped onto our plane, flew about two hours, and drove another 3. But this trip was way different from last years trip because the sophomores were on a completely different flight then the freshmen and our coaches! So, they all had a flight at 8:45am while our flight was at 9:45pm. Us sophomores didn't arrive to Denver till a little past midnight Colorado time. We hardly got any sleep that night, with arriving to the hotel and getting settled in bed around 2 in the morning and having to wake up at 6:30 to pick up and head out for Lamar! (Let me just tell you now, I slept the entire three hours haha.)nSo once we got to Lamar we didn't even stop to check into our motel (yes, i said MOTEL) and drove straight to the gym. Fortunately, the motel was right next door to the campus.
In the tournament we played Lamar CC, Dodge City CC, Trinidad CC, and Pratt CC. You'll be very much impressed to hear we left Lamar with the record 4-0. Can I just say we absolutely destroyed our competition?! Oh cause we did:)
Oh and did I mention my team is down-right hilarious? Like, seriously... I cry laughing all of the time. There are just about a million new inside jokes we have amongst ourselves. I love my team.
Brooke and Stacky
Pictures? Nooooo thank you.
Notice me howling hahahahaha
Our first game of the season is Wednesday. MCC best be watching out!

Welp, another semester of school has started and I am extra 'anti-school' this term. (and it's only the SECOND day!) Ugh. Man this is going to be such a long semester. Maybe it has something to do with the 16 credit schedule I'm taking along with volleyball, volleyball and some more volleyball! You also can't forget lifting twice a week. May I just say, it.gets.tiring! I usually can't keep my eyes open that late at night. Poor Miranda, I feel like I never see her. (For those of you who don't know Miranda is my cousin who moved in with us about...a month or so ago.) But it's definitely been great having her here. We are just 6 months apart and it's great! I always have a friend with me:) The other night we went and saw Crazy Stupid Love and Ohhh Myyy it was hilarious! Seriously we were dying laughing! At one point during the movie we found ourselves both gasping and holding our hands over our mouth and then looked down our row and no lie, every girl was doing the exact same thing! But truthfully, go see it. Do it do it do it! It's so good!!!
One last thing... Last Sunday Miranda, Shalai, Taelin, and I had a little photo shoot on Miranda's MAC and it was hilarious! I tried uploading some, but for some reason it isn't working at the moment. So next post, be prepared:)

Okay, it's been awhile since I've last blogged. Sooo quick update, volleyball... is kicking my butt! Literally. Today especially, the team was at the gym from 8:30-3! That's 6 in a half hours! Yeah I know what you're thinking. That's crazy long! You're telling me... Yayyyy for college volleyball! Also, school starts next week. And let me tell ya... so not excited! But I just have to keep reminding myself just one more semester at Chandler-Gilbert then I am free to go wherever I want! Yay:) Now that's something I am excited about.
On another note, I watched this movie the other night called Changeling. I loved it! I mean, it was so sad and I could hardly believe that it was a true story but I completely loved it! And I definitely recommend you watch it.
