Home again, home again....

Well, the semester ended about two weeks ago and since then I have been spending time in utah... something that I will be doing for the next 3 1/2 months. I've got two jobs lined up so hopefully I will be working a lot and saving some mulah for school...
Since it's been a good while since my last post, I thought I would give a little 'shout out' to my awesome roommates who really made this past semester so great for me!
Jessica, Susan, Heather, Sarah, (Me) and Tehra, you girls are amazing! I am so grateful that we were roommates this semester. I learned so much from each of you! you girls are so great!! I miss you! Here are some more pictures from our roommate 'Photo shoot' if you will. Enjoy, we certinally did! :)
funny story behind this picture... we took these pictures out in the middle of nowhere, seriously we were driving and just pulled off on the side of the road and started taking pictures. While we were over on this train car, Kariann (Pink shirt on the right) was taking a picture of the 6 of us roommates. This car drove past, turned around and pulled off the road. Two guys got out and went up on a pile of rocks for like 30 seconds then came over and offered to take a picture of all 8 of us. We said that would be great and had them take two pictures of us. They asked if we needed anymore and us being the silly, oh so brilliant girls that we are said no. They asked again and we again said no. It was only after they left that we realized that they were probably 'flirting' with us and we didn't even know.... haha.

One more, of me and heather :)

Those are just a few of the MANY pictures we took. It was a great semester! Love and miss you girls!!

P.S. I even got a B+ in my chem class :) life is great!

Life is hard. Life is full of challenges. But, Life is GREAT. Life is great and the hard times are made easier and better by the people that we keep around us. (I promise I'm ok, but I just came to some realization of some things and thought I would share.) I have such great friends and roommates. My roommates are amazing and have changed my life. Two of my guys friends have had the same affect on me this semester. Because of them I am a better person and I am better able to deal with the things that I face in my life. I am so blessed to have them in my life. Anyways, that was just something that I had beent hinking about a lot and thought I would share. So on friday I did something totally fun and sweet. I did a Murder Mystery dinner and it was AWESOME!! There were 8 of us that went to dinner at Wendy's then came back to my apartment to play the game. It was super intense but don't worry, my character was not the murderer, I was just the knocked up cheerleader... Tehra was a nerd. haha :) it was really fun to spend a night with my friends. This is the whole murder mystery group. Dallin, the one in the brown sweater behind Tehra was the murder... Dallin how could you?!?

Life is Amazing.....

So right now I am sitting the the Salt Lake International Airport, waiting to fly to Boise to spend Thanksgiving with my dad and my step-mom and I was just thinking about how amazing life really is... I have so much to be thankful for because I have so many things that are AMAZING! Here is a funny video that I thought would make you smile.... its so true, so take some time to be thankful for the things that you have, weather it be advanced technology, AMAZING friends and family, a great school to recieve an education from, a roof over your head and food on your table, just be thankful!! :)

Visiting Home.....

Well it's sunday morning and I am writing this post from the comfort of my home in Utah. Woot! It is always nice to get a break from the stress and insanity of college life and spend some time with my family and friend. Unfortunatly I still have homework.... now that my friend, is the true mark of a college student. You get all excited about having a week off from school, and apparently the teachers do too! The just throw you some extra homework as a "thanksgiving present"... really, if you wanted to give me something to be thankful for you could have left the homework back in Rexburg. O well... moving on.
Yesterday I went to Dani's swim meet up in Bountiful. It was so much fun!! Swimming used to be such a big part of my life and I have basically quit 'cold turkey' due to college responsibilities. I was doing ok with it and then I went to the meet yesterday and realized how much I miss it! I got to the meet around 11 A.M. and we didn't leave until 3 P.M. and I was happy and content the WHOLE time! The sounds, the people, even the smell of the pool were just awesome! I'm definatly going to have to get myself back to swimming in December when the semester ends and I become a workaholic....

Well, it is almost thanksgiving and I really have no desire to do any homework so I decided to make a blog... Sounded like a good idea at the moment! So we will see how this goes. I'm not really sure what one is supposed to write on a blog, but I think that since this is my first post maybe I'll just introduce myself... because I know that so many of you care :) I am Kelsey, I am 19 years old and am currently a sophomore at BYU-Idaho studing exercise physiology. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up but that is ok. I have great friends and an AMAZING family! I really love to swim, although I sadly have not had the time to do so this semester. I also love running! I ran my first half-marathon in June and my first full marathon in September.. you could definatly consider me addicted to it. I am considering running the salt lake half marathon in April.. that is looking like it will be my next big race. I really enjoy dancing, listening to music, cooking, eating and just having a good time!

I really do have some of the best friends I could ask for! First off is my little sister and my mom, they are so amazing!!This is us after the Pocatello Marathon in September.. Dani and Mom both ran the 5K and did GREAT!!

When I came around the last .2 miles of the race I saw Dani standing on the side waiting for me and she ran the finish with me! By far the best part of the race :)

She is GREAT!!!

This semester I have some awesome roommates, like I always do!! They have come to all my concerts and even dressed up for my halloween concert... they are CHAMPS!! :)

Basically I'm just a girl that is happy to be living the life that I am, and this is my blog. Read it if you want, enjoy it if you want, and if you don't want to, well that is ok too!
