Back at the beginning of school, Holly and I joined BYU's Wildlife and Range club. This week they had they're first camp out, in Ephraim. We stayed at one of Holly's professor's cabin way back in the mountains, and it was spectacular.

It is SO pretty here in the fall. I love it! Holly and I had quite the adventure trying to find this cabin. The other campers in the club left early, but since I had school until 7, Holly and I didn't leave until 8. So then we were trying to find this place on a huge mountain, in the dark. When we got lost, we called some of the club members, and eventually we managed to get there. We also got stuck in the mud before getting there. I could swear the map they gave us said "veer left" at the mud hole, but it actually said right. I was screaming "veer left! veer left!", and all it did was get us stuck. Luckily, Holly's little metro is so light, it didn't take much pushing to get it unstuck .

In the end, it was all worth it! We got to do some hiking/exploring, and four-wheeling. AND we got free food. Holly and I will go to anything that offers free food :)

BYU is always putting on free, crazy stuff activities, and on Tuesday it was blue foam. It is seriously the funnest yet most disgusting stuff ever. They had a blue foam slide, huge foam piles, and spray jet foam.

This week in school we learned manicures and pedicures. We all suck pretty badly, especially at french tips.

So the girl getting her toes done closest to us in this photo, is Vanessa. She was actually smiling just before I took this picture. But the moment I actually pressed the button, she put her feet in the water, and it was really hot. So that's the face she made. Ha ha ha ha ha.

Here's my first haircut while attending hair school! I am going to keep track of each hair style I have. Maybe make a flip book when I'm done with school. Not too much is changed. Back in March I had a pixie cut, and as pixie cuts grow out, they tend to get heavier and longer in the back, giving your whole hair style a sloping effect. Very unattractive. Mullet-ish. So that's what I had, and I got the back trimmed up a bit. I think I'm going to try and grow my hair out a bit. But you never know in hair school, and I change my mind a lot.

Yeah... So this is what my roommates and I do during our homework breaks.

All I can say is... I love school! My class has 22 girls in it, and they are all wonderful. We have had no problems getting along, and we usually hang out with each other at lunch break.

This week we have been playing (literally) with makeup, and learning hand, scalp, and back massages. It doesn't feel like school at all! Most days, I go back to the apartment and put all my roommates to sleep by giving them facials and massages.

On Friday our kits finally came in! We went crazy! Several girls kept exclaiming that it felt like christmas. We spent about 3o minutes ripping open boxes and ooing and ahing over our new things.
This morning I woke up to a parade right outside of my apartment. It's Homecoming at BYU.

This happened on thursday. Snow! What the heck?! It's only the first week of October! I don't like it. It gives the impression that christmas is close by, but it's not even halloween yet. How deceitful!

It reminds me of the scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. You know the cartoon segment where it's going through all the seasons? "And summer skipped fall and jumped straight into winter!"

Temple, Stitches, Toms, and Conference, in that order.

I love to see the temple :) And I see it every week! This week I went for the first time since I've been here. I loved it! I hadn't ever been in another temple, and it just dawned on me that there are a million other temples right here in Utah that I can go to. I love seeing and visiting new temples!
Here is the Provo Temple. Not the prettiest temple in the world (Jenna and I call it the "cupcake temple"), but it is gorgeous on the inside!

Jenna and I walked from her Grandparents house to the Timpanogos Temple yesterday. I plan on doing baptisms at this temple this week.

Last night Jenna and I went visited the Salt Lake Temple. We are convinced that Disney got their castle's look from this temple. It is so gorgeous. I would love to go inside someday.

Holly definitely had an exciting weekend! On Thursday night, Holly bent over her dresser to pick up a shirt (in the dark, mind you), and she smacked her head into the corner of the dresser. She hit the dresser so hard that she bounced off and hit the ground. She just laid there for a minute or so covering her head with her hands. I thought she was going to cry! I finally convinced her to move her hand, just to make sure there was no blood. As it was, there was blood, and we quickly bandaged it up.Here she is all bandaged up. The next day she went to the doc. just to make sure she didn't need stitched. Turns out she did need some, and now she has 3, with some nice swelling and colorful bruises surrounding her eye. Poor girl!

Fall is here! Every day I watch the mountains slowly changing colors. It started with the trees at the top of the mountain, then it slowly crawled down to the trees down here in the valley.

Here are my new Tom Shoes. I have always wanted some, and I learned that all my shoes for school have to be close toed. And comfy, since we are always on our feet. Toms are awesome. For every pair you buy, another pair is given to a child in need.

Conference weekend is the best weekend. It is always so relaxing.
And you can usually get in a few extra naps. Rose, my roommate, can NOT sit still for more than a few minutes without falling asleep. She is so funny!
