T-Minus 27 Days!

To anyone who reads this, I apologize for being so lousy at staying up on my posting. But big kudos to Emily Smith for reminding me that I really really need to start posting more.

I have about 2 WEEKS!!!! of summer left, so I thought it would be appropriate to update everyone of the goings-on in my life. (Don't worry, there haven't been many of them so this should be a short post.)

I began the summer by.........getting dumped. I'll spare you the details, but I figured the summer could only get better from there. After getting my wisdom teeth out in early May, I began my fourth summer working at Albertsons. I even got my three-year pin!

The Albertsons uniform is pretty darn bland, so I've taken up collecting really cute headbands to spice things up. If ever anyone wants to get rid of some headbands, I will gladly take them off your hands!!
Pretties :)

I flew to Arizona for a week in June to visit some old friends, and it was a BLAST!! I stayed with my long lost Mexican sister, Raimee Mawson, who was kind enough to put up with me for a week. We went night hiking and shopping and cruised to thug music in the Arizona desert, and even almost got eaten by a giraffe! I also got to spend some time with Robbie Berger, Sami Encizo, Courtney Canez, Cody Falquez, Dusty Angel, and Rebecca Lopez...All very, very good friends. I won't even begin to list the insane things we did.
Night hikin'!!
Tucson zoooooo!

Before I left for Arizona, I started dating Devin Escamilla. My first summer romance. We broke up about a week ago, but I have nothing but good feelings toward the kid. We went on long hikes together, and he took me shooting, and we sat and talked for hours upon hours. Summer romances ain't so bad after all, ya know. <3
He's pretty darn cute :)

In early July, my mom, younger sister, and I ventured to California, via Utah where I got to hang out with my dear friend, Dallas Olsen. Anyone who doesn't know him should get to know him. He's pretty much the coolest person ever.
Once in California, I tried to stay inside as much as possible because of the sweltering heat. People there told me it was actuall a pretty mild week, with temperatures "only" reaching about 105. But still, coming from Sheridan, it was a bit too much for me. But evenstill, I had a great time. (Aside from the LCD kit on my laptop going completely insane!)
I've since gotten it fixed, but it was quiiiiite the ordeal :(
Cameron and I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter, which is one thing I will never do again. Let's just say standing in line next to a kid whose dreads smell like marijuana is not my cup of tea. We also went to the beach in San Diego, where I got a fierce sunburn because I forgot to put sunscreen on. We did a good amount of shopping in both El Centro and San Diego, and I'm now officially BROKE. Best part of the trip, though, was making a new friend. :) Shout out to Cody Johnson, if he ever reads this.
Cody and Sam stuffed themselves into a photobooth. It was quite adorable, really!

We returned home for a day, long enough to do some laundry, before we headed to my sister Adrienne's graduation from BYU-Idaho. I'm so so SOOO proud of her for having the drive to complete her education with the challenges of being poor, married, and a mother all at the same time. She's pretty great in my book. :)
Sisters <3

And now, I have nothing left to do but work and wait. School starts exactly 27 DAYS! from today. To be honest, I've never been so excited for summer to be over. I guess being away from a great town, a great university, and amazing friends will do that to you.
