First Day of School!

So today was my first day of Graduate School. I had some running around to do and I had to talk to my advisers about what classes to take so it was a busy day and I don't have any clever pictures but I'm excited and ready to be really busy.

California Here I Come!

So my parents were planning to go to California with my sister and her family and they were planning to go to Disneyland. Well long story short I was having a bad night and my sister called and in the course of the conversation she mentioned that I should come with them to cheer me up but we both thought that it would be too expensive, but the next day I was still in a bad mood so I was thinking about it some more and I checked on air fares and found a pretty good price on a round trip ticket. So Thursday night I called my mom and my sister to make sure it was ok if I came, then I booked my ticket, packed my bags and then by 2:00 Friday I was driving to the Salt Lake Airport to fly to LAX We went to Disneyland Saturday, and Sunday, and Disney's California Adventure on Monday I had alot of fun but I was completly worn out by the time that I was flying back on Tuesday. Here's a few pictures, I don't have any pictures of myself at Disney but I have alot of my two nieces.

I was so excited to walk into Disneyland and see that sign I haven't been to Disneyland since I was eleven years old.

When the Lyric season was finally over some of my friends and I decided to go camping. We went to a campground that was right on a reservoir we went swimming and made dinner and the next day we went to a hot springs. I had a lot of fun I wish that I could have had a little more time so that I could have stayed for more than one night but I wanted to get home to see my niece, but it was still fun.

Dinner with my Best Girl Friend

Tonight I was cleaning and packing since I'm headed out of town for a few weeks when I got a surprise call from my best friend MerAnda. She and her family were nearby today for a family reunion and they wanted to have dinner with me because she's heard me talk about Tiny Spicy Chicken at my favorite Chinese restaurant and they wanted me to take them there. So I met MerAnda and her family at the restaurant and we had dinner I was relieved that they liked my favorite dish since they ordered it solely on my recommendation. It was so nice so see people from home especially since MerAnda's family is almost like a second family for me.

Don't the girls look so cute in there matching purple shirts?

It was so good to see my best friend.

End of the Season

Well I can't believe it but today is the last day of the Lyric Season. I have to go to the theatre at 10 tonight to strike the last show and then we're done I have mixed feelings about the end of this season but mostly for personal reasons but I have a few pictures from the company picnic and a breakfast that the apprentices invited us to. I'm headed home for a few weeks and then on to Grad School.

This was a human rubber band at the picnic it looked funny but I wasn't brave enough to try it.
