I spent the day searching for a new Winter coat to adopt. I found good ol' Mr. Orange atBurlington. I actually put it on layaway and got it yesterday on the way to Emily's b-day in Payson.
During the night of my birthday we went to The Duchess at the dollar theatre in Provo, and A Muppet Christmas Carol at the dollar theatre in the student center. This is a picture of the Ice Age 3 trailer before Christmas Carol.
Becca made me a Black Forest cake for my birthday, and all the homies made me oreo balls. I think this is when Too Many Sweets December started.Some night last week, I didn't screw the cap all the way on my laundry detergent...
This morning I made an hour by hour plan for this week as to maximize productivity and scorage.
PS how do I get it so my pictures enlarge when you click on them?

Work's been crazy. I've been sewing for hours daily but seem to get nothing done. Next week I'll work a lot. I want to get Meers completely put together before break. We dyed her slip orange today, it was exciting.
I left a copy of Pygmalion I checked out from the library in Cole's car over Thanksgiving. He's found it however and is sending it to me.
I want to make a dress for the two wedding receptions I have the night I get back in. I think I'll work the first half of the day, study and take tests the second half, and sew at night next week. That sounds like a good plan.
I've had a lot of sweets this week and hardly any meals. That's no good. I eat truffels or fudge or whatever all day in the costume shop, then I'm not hungry for my lunch when I get off of work at 2 or 3, so I don't eat until I get home at 5 or 6. That's no good.
We had a Jingle and Mingle for Enrichment tonight. It was a dessert potluck. I at six truffels at work, skipped lunch, had a grilled cheese sandwich for dinner then a plate full of other people's desserts. I'm picky about desserts.
We went to Sister Flygar's (our RS lady) house for the activity. It was AMAZING! Imagine a Christmas Hunting Lodge and you have her house. It was very festive.
My brain exploded on Tuesday, it's still recovering. This has been the longest week of the semester.

I moved into my new Wyview apartment and got cozy.
Then the homies (Nadin not pictured) showed up.
I made some bread. It was delicious.
Cole came for General Conference. That made me VERY happy. We got into the Conference Center for 3 sessions (well, he got in for four, counting priesthood).
I helped the Doctor Who Club make our TARDIS and I walked w/ them in the Homecoming Parade.
Owen turned one and we had yummy cupcakes at Ashley's.
Cole's brother got married in Manti at the end of October. He came out and took me to the reception in Cortez, CO. I got to meet his family, it was GREAT!
We went to Mesa Verde.
Cole looked very handsome at the reception.
I was a rag-doll for Halloween. Genevieve was the second amendment. The Homies went to Sweeney Todd in Concert at the Castle in Provo. It rained almost the entire second act, but was totally worth it!
Genevieve and I finally made it to the Temple. Even though it's the last homegame and that's where you'd think everyone would be, doesn't mean that a ward w/ 50 youth doesn't have a Temple trip. We went to the Creamery after and got some guacamole bacon burgers like old times.
The kids came over last Sunday
Some variation of Leap Frog
Emily's jacket is on upside-down. The hood is at the bottom.
And finally a picture of Nadin
So yeah, that's been my semester so far. Insert long hours at work, lots of homework and conducting in Sacrament Meeting everyotherweek and you have my life.
