It's the White Elephant time of year!

To start, i just thought that this was funny. My friends and i describe it as "Me in my Element" Fuzzy socks, basketball shorts and ramen noodles. thats how i show up to everything these days :)

So our floor decided to do a white elephant gift exchange in place of our sunday floor meeting. as you can probably guess, most everyone forgot. Furthermore, it being sunday, no one could dash to the dollar store to get a quick funny gift. So things were pretty interesting! We started off with some games. The first was someone would put a poster picture around their head and have twenty questions to guess what they were! my friend stephanie was the statue of liberty...she asked if she was a political figure and we figured technically yes. so of course she would get a disgusted look on her face and ask, AM I HILLARY CLINTON??? hahaha it was great!

Next, i of course decide to volunteer. Low and behold, i get the best face of them all...a toilet seat! Its what i get for being an active participant..

One of the best gifts was the real white elephant made out of paper towels and toilet paper! Man i wish i was creative...

I can't be modest here. I have to be truthful and say that my gift got the most laughs out of the whole night. I was in a rush to get something to wrap. What else could be funnier than a tampon wrapped in a big box? Man im good.

Here is our group for the White Elephant! They are most of the girls from my floor, probably only two outsiders. Our floor is bomb!

So the BYU v Utah game was quite the exciting event. Even though we should've put them away in the third quarter, we always like to make the game exciting and figure out how to play in the last few mins. Props to the defense though! Here are some pics from the game.

Pete is now a Fully Invested COUGAR FAN! Way to choose the right :)
(his parents went to Utah)

During the game

Storming the field afterwards! Yes i was by myself! I pushed right through to the middle!

Sweet Pic of Brian Keele. It was just way fun :)

I wish my family could've come to the game because it was a blast! Maybe next year...

Family Metaphor

So for my introduction to family processes class i had to come up with a metaphor to describe my family. i could not use any photos to depict them, just think of ways that they could be represented in an abstract sense. it took me forever to think of something, but this is my final product. What do ya think?

The first one is the whole thing, while the second and third are side views. So can you figure it out? is this like my family? lol

I think the best parts are the football and basketball paper! Sweet

Decades Dance!

Yet another dance! This one was kinda lame though. They basically tried to force us to learn how to swing dance instead of actually having a dance. i took lots of pictures though! yay!

I was an awesome hippie :). My friend sean tried to be a hippie, but i don't think that just a tie dye shirt cuts it. I dont really know what pete was trying to be, but a red womens blazer is definately the way to go. My friend Cami (who also happens to be our Relief Chief aka Relief Society President) was from the 80's. So basically the best part of this dance was dressing up and taking pictures. yay! i miss you all! only 41 days until i come home! yayyy

Happy Halloween!

So Halloween has come and gone! Wow there are lots of halloween parties! One is never without something to do out here, thats for sure. Last Thursday we had a ward Halloween party where everyone dressed up and we had a dance afterwards. That was good fun! My friends and I also of course made it to two different Halloween dance parties on friday and saturday. what a weekend! Here are some pictures from the dance

Sarah and I are dressed up as Harry and Hermoine! Doesnt it look like we are waiting for the Knight Bus? (...Harry fans would understand...)

Here are just some friends and I at the dance!

Its a Death Eater! AHHH!

My Army friend Tim...except he really is in the ROTC program so this wasnt very creative.

I hope you all had an awesome Halloween! Im counting down the days until Christmas break! AHHH!

Secret Agent Date Night

Well I have been out here at BYU for almost two months now! Me and some of the girls on my hall made up this totally awesome date where we pretended to be captured secret agents. The boys we asked had to help find us and become agents too!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
We even had them call a random number to leave messages about themselves, their aliases, etc. It was so much fun! We sent them so many anonymous letters, and it worked out really well. We even outlined our bodies in chalk and left them a message on the basketball court outside our dorm

The last step was for them to complete a scavenger hunt then save us from being tied to trees. it was so funny when they found out who we were!

My dates alias was "Agent Slapduck" and i was "Agent Fire Duster"! After they found us we had pizza and went to laser tag. It turned out to be a really fun night.
