Another Fun Weekend

So my friends and I decided that you're never too old to have sleepovers (or at least, we haven't gotten to that point yet). So we all went over to Carrie's, watched movies, ate junk food, talked, swam, and stayed up until three in the morning! Then the next day I helped Brittany move into her new apartment in San Luis Obispo... I'm really gonna miss them all when I make it back up to school! =(

So you think you can dance?

Yes I do! Well, sort of. Saturday at our stake Pioneer Day celebration we had our dance performance. I did the waltz and the Cha Cha (which I also helped teach.) In the Cha Cha I had to ba a guy in the dance because one of our young men bailed out. I had Brittany Asplund record the performances on her camera since both of her sisters were performing with me as well. So here is a video of my Waltz performance.

Magic Mountain!

Last saturday I went to Magic Mountain with Jessi and Christine. As per tradition we took action shots with the super heroes. It was way fun! And I'm glad I have a season pass so that I can go whenever I want! I actually went there on a date yesterday as well and am planning on going with some friends later this week... If only it wasn't $15 for parking! =(

Huntington Beach Dance

So every year around this time there's a huge dance down in Huntington Beach. We got a group of about 25 of us from Simi to drive down there. It was a blast, and afterwards we of course hit up the beach and In-N-Out... always a must!

**Dancing with the stars!**

This next saturday, our stake is putting on a "Dance Festival". It will be held at the Erringer building on the morning of the Pioneer Day celebrations. I am choreographing/teaching/dancing the Cha-Cha, and dancing the Waltz. My nights for the next two weeks will consist mostly of dancing. Surprisingly, I'm really enjoying it!

I think I'm the best Metcalf dancer... sacond to Aaron of course! =)

July 4th Weekend!

We went to Ventura on July fourth. We hung around at the beach and then walked along the harbor. Afterwards we bbq-ed in the backyard and went to watch the Simi High fireworks from the back lawn of the Cochran building... Then on the 5th we went down to Dana Point/ Balboa Island. It was so much fun walking along the beach, checking out the shops, and getting caricatures done! =)

Third Best In The Nation

So in November my volleyball team went to the National Tournament in Omaha, Nebraska. We went in with the number 1 ranking and seed. We ended up losing a heart breaker in the semi-finals to the only other team we've lost to this year, Western Nebraska Community College. They went on to win the title while we went on to beat Frank Phillips for third place. It was so heart breaking... but at least we got a trophy! So we ended our season 44-2 overall, Conference Champions, District Champions, Region Champions, won multiple tournaments, held the #1 national ranking for over 3/4 of the year, and #rd in the Nation... not half bad!

My 19th Birthday!

So this last October I celebrated my birthday in true California style by going clubbing! =) Well, as close to clubbing as you can get in Utah at a non- alcoholic, clean music only club. A bunch of my friends got together, made a cake, and we partied til the break of dawn!

Roller Skating

In March it was dollar skate night and my friends and I thought we'd kick it up a notch and make it 80's themed... But it turned into looking a bit trailer trash 80's =) Regardless, it was still a blast!

One Crazy Weekend!

In March I went down to Las Vegas again with some of my friends to watch our baseball team... we walked on the strip, watched some games, and had tons of fun! And I finally got a picture in front of the "Vegas" sign.
