We had a good time. We decided to go a few days for my birthday. Just a few of my closest friends. I look a bit different now, but what can you do, eh?

Do these girls know how to PARTY or what?

So we have this tradition in our apartment: Totally go all the way for 21st birthdays!!

My LAGOON extravaganza...

Ellen's Birthday Shots...

Midnight (or midafternoon) Margaritas for Jenni's...
Okay, so I know you might think this looks bad, but we are good Mormon girls. We just so happen to know how to P-A-R-T-Y!!!

Drinks anyone?

So I wouldn't be the first one to admit that I have a problem...who am I kidding? It's Ellen's(the red head) 21st Birthday! Naturally they are all safe, we just got a little sugar rush. Yeah, a rush. That's what we'll call it :).

We LOVE us some FRUITY drinks!

What's happening with me cont...

I decided to minor in Humanities—a study of religion, literature, art, and music of different cultures. It’s been a passion of mine since the first day of my freshman year. Actually, I had that passion since I began to learn about different cultures way before I began college. Now I just had an excuse to take classes for it. Why Humanities though? What does that have to do with Public Relations you ask? I really want to do international event planning. Humanities gives me the culture basis I need to help me work internationally. My ALL-TIME, GOTTA HAVE IT, Really what I want to do goal is to work for the church under international and public affairs. I’m working on getting there.

Right now I am working in the University Relations office planning a tour. The Chamber Orchestra goes on tour every other year and my job is to plan every little detail. We will be going to the Pacific Northwest April 12-28, 2008. I’m very excited.
I am currently the first counselor in my relief society presidency and before that, I was the teacher development teacher (teaching others how to teach). Some of my previous callings have included teaching relief society, ward missionary, compassionate service leader and many more.

I have had so many leadership and growing opportunities. I’ve tried to be really involved while here at the Y of I. I’ve been on dance teams, helped involve new students, host performers that come to the campus for shows, and several others. I have learned new talents and developed old ones. I love it up here. It’s been something that has changed my life and continues to change it. For those who haven’t been here, you don’t know what you’re missing until you come. Seriously! It’s the most wonderfully amazing experience!

As some may know, I am singing in the cultural celebration for the Rexburg, Idaho Temple dedication. It's going to be filled with talent from square dancing to fiddling, to hymns of praise. I have felt so spiritually strengthened by it and cannot wait for the performance!

The recent passing of our beloved prophet has inspired me to sing a little he can hear me from heaven.
