Breast Cancer Awareness Month

All month long our team is warming up in pink warm up tops for Breast Cancer Awareness. And this Thursday we're having a benefit game where all proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. I love that our team is doing what they can to help... and looking cute while at it!
We also all wore pink bows...Alissa did her hair a little crazy so we had fun with hers :)

The Girls of the Purple House

Check Spelling

I don't know why, but our house has been nicknamed the Purple House. It's just a name that it's had for a while and people know it as that, so it stuck. Anyways, all of us roommates finally found a day that we could all take pictures a few weeks ago (we all have pretty busy lives) Don't I have some gorgeous roommates??

East Elementary Eagles

Dear Student Teacher,
That's how my letter in this mornings mail started out. I just got my student teaching placement and I'm so excited! I will be student teaching starting this January at East Elementary School in Cedar City, Utah. I will be in either a 1st or 3rd grade classroom with one of two teachers. I seriously can't wait! I am so close to being graduated and licenced and out in the real world of teaching!!!
AHHHHH!!! I really can't contain my excitement! Just ask my roommates who witnessed me dancing around the kitchen as I read this :)

True T-Bird

I'm sure every University has some equivilant of the True T-Bird. The night before the homecoming game everyone stands at a certain place (in our case touching our statue) and kisses at midnight after we count down. This is my last year here at SUU so it was basically now or never. So I asked a friend of mine, my roommates boyfriend's friend, if he'd help me to reach this goal of mine.
As you can see, I'm not one for doing things halfway, so rather than just touching the statue of Old Sorrel, We were standing/sitting on the top of it with a few other couples.

This is with Zach Wall a couple of minutes after midnight, after all of the couples "making out" cleared out of the way. Now I can check that one off of my list of things to do this year ;)

Pretend Camping

Another adventure list item we crossed off: pretend camping. We brought out our extra couch by our fire pit and made dinner and dessert (hot dogs and s'mores). Then the plan was to sleep out on the grass... but then we thought better of it and just brought out love sack and recliners out to the patio and slept there.
