I am not an incredible runner, but it is something I am trying to do on a regular bases.  I've been pretty consistent at doing it for the past couple of months. I've been running on the dear treadmill down in my basement as well.  Lets just say that I hate the treadmill quite a lot.  Tonight though I had a couple of friends invite me to join them running up at the new BYU-I Center.  First off I was really hesitant to go, because these two friends of mine are really good runners.  One of them runs in between 5-10 miles on a daily bases.  Yeah crazy, that is all I have to say.  The other friend was involved in cross country and track all throughout high school, and runs long distances with no problem, and doesn't even break a sweat doing it.  Well I finally decide it would be good for me and I put on my new BYU-I workout shirt and headed out to see how I compared with these two great athletes. 

Well shockingly, it turned out pretty darn good.  It was incredible not having to run on a treadmill and stay in one place for way to long.  I actually was even able to stay up with one of my friends for the 20 min that I ran.  Yeah I am might just have to go to the BYU-I center every time I want to run now, if anyone would like to join me, I am always up for running partners!

New Adventures!

So when I was young my family went snow machining every once in awhile with my mother's family.  Yet the last time we went was when I was like 5, we've got some great pictures of me in my multi colored 90's coat and my frizzy hair. Lets just say not much has changed.  I've still got some great outfit pieces and frizzy hair as well.  My mother helped me out in my getting ready for my adventure of going to snow machine again tonight.  

Here is what occurred: first I tried to match my blue coat with this blue hat.  I thought it worked out well, but my mother then informed me that you can't look cute when you snow machine.  My favorite is how she emphasized that you can't look cute, that isn't an option.  It's all about the warmth, and as we all know warm things certainly can't be cute.  

That means I went for the boys hat that cover my ears super well and certainly hides my frizzy hair really well.

Then my mother told me that she had the perfect pair of gloves for me to wear.  

Yep the look like mickey mouse hands, just different colors.  I have this dear friend who really has great intensions when he gets me gifts, but sometimes they turn out to be well like mickey mouse gloves, and I wear them once, so when he ask whether I've worn them or not I can tell him I have.

I even got a picture of my mom with them on, and yes I got permission from her to put this picture on my blog. You can see why I love my robe so much, I am the daughter of my mother who loves her robe as well.  

Snow machining was a blast!  My sister's friend Nick brought his snow machines up to our house, because we have a potato field for our backyard, only in Idaho I know, and we partied hardy! Also I am so grateful for a mother who looks out for me, and makes sure I am dressed warm, but certainly not cute!

Also Ty, Brady, and I just liking taking picture of ourselves, especially before we go out and do something in the snow.  Don't ask me why, because to be honest I am not sure why.  Especially since we all always look our best, but I am not really self conscious about it, so I am going to share them anyways.

Busy Busy

The past few days have been glorious, because I've stayed pretty busy.  When I get to relax I really love it. Unfortunately though since I do enjoy it quite a bit I get very sedentary for a long time, and then I get bored and I'm not sure why.  Then when I get busy again I realize how awesome and accomplishing it feels to be doing something again.  Yeah it's a vicious cycle I suffer from, and probably need to learn to overcome.  Also I must admit now if what I had to stay busy with was homework, then I probably would not be writing this post.  Yet what I stayed busy with was actually having a social life. Yeah a little more exciting then homework and school.  I got to eat lunch with a good friend from last semester.  I ventured out to the ward social and surprisingly had a fun time. I even got to meet some new people and really enjoyed talking with them.  I got to spend some amazing quality time with the Burgener clan and like always had a blast!  Erin and I got to learn about color, and I never realized how cool color is and how much there is to learn about it.  I think I've found a new hobby to occupy my time with for awhile.  Then of course we had to spend sometime with her mom and talk about clothes and sewing. To top things off Elizabeth invited me to stay for lunch, and it was super delicious.  I had a group of friends come chill at my house.  Then I went on a date to top things off. Yep it's been quite the social weekend, and I've really enjoyed staying busy.  Thanks everyone who played a part for helping me stay busy and for being such wonderful friends!

Biggest Loser

Do you want to know my favorite show is?  Yes I know the title gave it away.  The Biggest Loser is the only television show that I watch, and usually I am not alone, because all my siblings join in as well.  Here is the irony of the situation.  If you ever seen my dearest sister Alisa or my little brother Brady, they are more likely to be considered underweight then to overly obese.  The other ironic thing comes with what I was eating while watching this show.

Yep I was eating Charleston Chews while watching the show.  Irony is the only word I can think of to describe this situation.  Sometimes a girl just needs her chocolate, ok.  Don't worry I am going to run afterwards, to make up for it!
