One of the girls on the softball team threw a themed masquerade party for all of the athletes a little bit ago. It was so much fun! Getting ready was probably my favorite part. I loved decorating my mask, doing my hair, putting on huge amounts of make up, and dressing up! I feel like I never get to do that these days. The party was tons of fun- until it was later broken up by the police because it was too loud... but until that point, it was so much fun! =)

At Least One Of My Teams Can Win...

Last weekend we had a co-ed stake volleyball tournament. Now, SUU's team hasn't done so hot this season and I haven't really gotten to play much. So it was nice to play a little volleyball on a saturday, have no pressure, no yelling coach, and just enjoy the game. I'll admit- there were some pretty ugly plays. But our ward took first place and we got a cool plaque that will have 11th Ward engraved on it! =)

Costume Time

So when you're a "starving college student" you don't really feel like going out and buying a whole new costume for Halloween... but at the same time you don't want to wear what you wore last year. This year I decided to break out a costume I hadn't worn since 7th grade. So for my ward party I decided to wear my referee shirt and put on some sunglasses with a cane and be a blind referee. Now there were people there with some pretty intricate costumes, but surprisingly enough I won the individual costume contest! This picture is with the boys from the apartment below me who decided to be "The Price Is Right" and won the group contest. Much more creative than mine I thought!

And then there was The Howl- our school Halloween dance. I didn't want to be carrying a cane around all night so figured I would need to come up with something else... and then? Voila! The Office came on, and Jim was "Facebook". So I decided to use this idea of just wearing regular clothes and writing on my face so that I wouldn't have to worry about getting a whole different costume together... I loved it, and so did a lot of other random people who I've never met (There are a LOT of Office fans down here at SUU) Other than some parties and games my Halloween was pretty low key- but hey! It's Cedar City!
