And so it begins...

Alright well Ashlee, Michelle, and I have finally all made it up to BYU! Michelle and I drove up yesterday and it took us about 11 hours. And yes I have to admit that I received my first EVER speeding ticket! I was so scared and I almost started crying! But it's all good, I will never speed again. : ) Anyway so yesterday I was so frustrated and just overwhelmed with everything. I was running around taking Michelle to her apartment and then to Wal-mart so Ash and I could get stuff for our bathroom and then to my aunt Terri's to get my boxes. I was so exhausted! I finally got home and realized that I didn't have any sheets so I had to sleep on my quilt that I made and then fold it over the top of me. Yeah......I recommend not doing that. ; )I was just feeling so stressed and was a little homesick and I am still trying to get used to the fact that I won't get to see Jared for 2 years. But everything went a lot better today and I was able to get more organized and put stuff where it belongs and just realize that once I get into my routine of things everything will be just fine. I will post some pictures of our apartment and my room and everything once it is all done. It is a pretty nice place and we have done some cute stuff with it! Well I need to get up early for another fun filled crazy day so that's all I have for today. I just wanted to let everyone know that we got here and I am so excited for the next couple years! And I also wanted to thank everyone who has helped me get to this point in my life. I will try and post more tomorrow and I will be sure to keep everyone updated while I am up here! GO COUGARS! : )

Naughty Will!

Alright so last week when my sister Ashlee was still here we were over at our sister Drea's house and Drea was sleeping and Jason was gone. So it was just Ashlee, Will (the cat), and I. Let's just say that the three of us have never really gotten along that well. For some reason Will can't stand it when we are over. He swats at our feet when we are just walking around and if we try to play with him or pick him up he goes for the kill and tries to bite us sometimes. I am kind of warming up to him but for some reason on this particular Sunday he was a bit crankier than usual. He started biting at us left and right and we were scared out of our minds! I got the squirt bottle and was trying to get him to go in the laundry room but he freaked out and went and hid in the curtains. Ashlee remembered that he hates bags so she went with that idea....and well, you can see the rest. : )

Angela likes to say please, thank you, and excuse me to P.J.(my dog) so I thought I might try that approach. : )

He never went into the laundry room but he backed off and we all went to neutral corners! : )
