Suite Living In Utah

It's official, I am now all moved into my brand new apartment! I won't take credit for moving in ANY of my stuff because my dad and brother in law did it all! THANKS GUYS! There were a few random things that my roomies and I needed to purchase at Ikea so we made an Ikea run and finished all the shopping and decorated our super dang cute apartment! Thank goodness for living so close to an Ikea! Anywyas, I am living with two girls that were in my ward last year and they are so sweet and nice and like to have fun (just like me, YES!). It is gonna be a great year this year!

This here is Jessica, she loves her flowers. They might possibly be the cutest part of our apartment. They were her project that she NEEDED to purchase to make our apartment cuter. She bought the whole set (including the table).

She also has to have candy dishes. It was a good idea until we downed all candies in a span of about two hours. When she refills the dishes it's the same old story. We eat those candies FAST! The candy dishes NEED to go, we made an agreement. They are still sitting there. She will also be in the same missionary boat as me (WOO HOO) her boyfriend Zack will be serving in Spain in October. He likes his girlfriends candies too.

This is my other roomy Courtney. She was a modern major last year but is now a chemistry major. She shares the same love for dance as me, and that isn't all, she loves cupcakes too!!! I HAD to buy a cupcake pan and she put it to good use in our cute new kitchen and with my kitchen aid YAY!

Speaking of our kitchen.... My dearest mother bought me the most precious salt and pepper shakers EVER! I won't tell you who she told me that they reminded her of :). Do they look familiar? Besides the different hair color on the boy, I have to admit I definitely agree with her. I also got some cute wall decorations for $3 at Wal-mart.

We got a great deal on a kitchen table and chairs at Ikea! This is my dinner on our new table. Oh and look at our cool napkin holder! Did I mention Ikea is the greatest?

My roommates had a couch, a table, a bean bag, and some foot rests, my Mom and Dad had the recliners and bookshelves that our family has had for years, and I retrieved a big T.V and table from my sisters. Now we have a great T.V room! The only thing we need now is a picture above our couch! Any donations would be fantastic.

We got Cable after about a week of living there and this is me rejoicing. I never realized how much I use the internet until I didn't have it for a week.

Here is my room. I share with Jessica. We have a walk in closet and a bathroom. It's nice because our sink is outside of the actual bathroom so that someone can get ready and somebody can shower at the same time! We got cheap desks for our computers at Ikea too.

I'm also sad that this picture has a glare on my Studs n' Spurs calendar. *Sigh* September is the best month too! ok, ok, I'll give you a sneek peek ;) ooooh yesssss.

My poor roomate is VERY cutsey with her side of the room. I rather enjoy my spiderman obsession. I couldn't resist. SORRY JESS!

Our apartment has two pools and a hot tub so my roommate and I decided to go test them out. Long story short, the covered parking is VERY low. We wanted to take our picture under the covered parking so we were in the shade. I put my camera on self timer on the steps up leading up to the pool. When I clicked the button I hurriedly ran back under the covered parking...and forgot to duck. I bashed my nose right into it. This is our "awesome" lets go swimming picture. My roommate didn't know whether I was crying or laughing because my eyes were watering so bad and I couldn't feel my face. She was trying not to laugh at how stupid I am.. Thankfully my nose just bruised real bad. It isn't crooked or anything WEW!


I also started school back up again! One of my friends named Hua taught our ballet class for the first week until our real teacher arrived the second week. He used to dance for Ballet West but wanted to take college courses. We ended up having a lot of the same classes so we help each other out with homework and such. It was fun having him as a teacher the first week. He really wanted a picture of our class. People in my class need to be more friendly... like me.

"Who am I sir? A Utah man am I. A Utah Man sir and will be till I die, KI YI!" I have been waiting for Football season to start ever since it ended! I LOVE BEING IN THE MUSS!!!!! Best part of being in college by far! The Muss was CRAZY ROWDY at the first game! I had so much fun and now that I have a decent amount of friends I have people to go crazy with! Here is my group in the Muss. Aren't these ladies classy? Max Hall would beg to differ. Sorry Maxy, we like being classless Ute Fans.

My friend Saje and his group of friends had WAAAY better seats so...I squished in with them most of the game. I like sitting by boys cause they always know what's going on. I don't ask too many questions I promise. When we walked in they gave us free foam fingers. It is hanging on my wall now.

I also reunited with my friend Kelli and we had a girls night. There is a Frozen Yogurt place called "Spoon Me." It is VERY delicious. There are funny flavors there, one is called, "Orange You Gonna Spoon Me?" ha.

Some other great news is that I quit the Phonathon! As much as I "enjoyed" being the annoying person that called U Alums ultimately asking for money, I had to quit even though I actually did get paid a very good amount of money. The whole summer I had been sending out my dance resumes to tons of ballet studios in Salt Lake. All of the studios ended up putting me on their substitute lists which is REALLY LAME so I got desperate and applied to tons of different places including Victoria's Secret. There is a new Bakery that opened last semester that I LOVE that is just like Panera Bread or Paradise Bakery. It is way close to my apartment and I applied! They ended up calling me as a waitress there! The day of my first shift I got called by a lady who got my number from my cousin (who dances for the company called Odessy). She was opening up a new studio and needed a new Head of Ballet Teacher because her old teacher couldn't do it. I met with her and I figured that making $20 dollars an hour for 4 hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays was WAAAY better than being a waitress at a Bakery. Basically, the day AFTER I worked my first shift at the Bakery I had to quit. I was sorta sad because I was very excited to get food half off at the bakery. My manager was actually very cool and said that if I wanted I could just work Saturday mornings just so that being waitress was on my resume. It could also be another long term job that would give me more job experience. SWEET! Now I am a ballet teacher and a waitress on the side! Come visit me at The Corner Bakery and come watch my girls in their recital at the end of the year! I am so blessed!

Welp, that is all for now! TTFN TA TA FOR NOW!
