The Zoo, an adventure, and sore muscles

The Zoo:
J. and I had a grand time at the zoo, seeing all the fun animals, although the giraffes and elephants didn't looks as tell as when i was ten, but then i was shorter then. we also got to see a baby organutan (she was so cute!) and a rhinocerous up close. we had an interesting conversation about relatiohsips on the way home and had fun hangin out. we then went to our 4-ward activity, followed by him beeing sweet enough to give me a ride home to payson. there i went to C.'s bridal shower and then hung out w/ D. at the carnival in sp. fork. i have no idea what is going to happen w/J. but things are interesting.

An Adventure:
Holy cow. Yesterday was such an adventure. But it was so much fun! So my friend Q. asked me to go to the Nutty Putty caves w/him and J. K. and M. M. (m&m are married same J. as the J. I went to the zoo w/too, Q. and J. are roomies.) So we leave provo at like 10:30, and come upon a hill that we think is the hill for the caves, but its not. (we didn't know that at the time) So we're walking up this super steep hill, for like forever, get to the top of this hill, and realize that we're on the wrong hill. So THEN, we go back down the hill, and to J.'s car and go to the right hill. (1.5 hours and 3 miles later...) so now we are at the caves. Now the caves are little, small, and there are times you have to army crawl. It was an adventure. So we get out of the caves at like 3 pm. we start driving home, when we hear this noise...yep a flat tire. we all get out and the tire gets changed by these macho men. We get home at like 4:50, and decide that we are super hungry. so we all go shower and change (we were a muddy mess.) then, i ate so much b/c i was so hungry that i was super full. after fhe i played night games on the south side of the marriott center, which was lots of fun.

Sore muscles:
all in all i had an awesome weekend, but my muscles are SO sore from the caves yesterday. but today is a good day, that's for sure! :)

missionaries and muggles....

okay part 1: missionaries
My two very good friends, sn, and ef, leave this week. one to the brazil mtc since he is serving in santa maria brazil, and the other to the provo mtc to go to tulsa oklahoma. insane i know. i went to both of their farewells this weekend. they are going to be amazing missionaries. but then they are amazing people. :) going to their farewells and knowing that i won't see them in two years makes me wonder where i'll be in two years. will i be married? have kids? be single? living in provo? still in school? almost done? honestly....a million different things could happen. *sigh*

part 2: muggles....
okay so this just worked with the m&m theme i decided to have today, so my mom and sister are going to AZ in a couple of weeks to help my grandparents move up here. soooooooo they decided they want the 6th HP book for their trip, which means i get to go and get it from the bookstore, which also means i get to read it before anybody else. mwaha ha ha ha ha....i am very exctied, and thus the muggleness... ;) i think that it is all for now, until later.

what has happened in a week....

not much to be honest. sorry its been so long. i know im a loser. bleh....so lets make a bullet list of what has happened since i posted a week ago and what is good about my life:
The Good and Bad of Alishka Babushka
  1. the fourth of july happened. this weekend i partied w/my family. we watched the stadium of fire fireworks from my apt. parking lot, and had a GREAT view of them. i went home, had some good home cooking, and all that jazz
  2. also went shopping this weekend. bought some new clothes, spent money i shouldn't have, but oh well. i justify the need for my jacket i bought, my office is freezing!!!
  3. went back to school/work on tuesday, which was nice to have a 3-day weekend, but at the same i almost died from the wonderful sunburn i recieved on monday. yuk yuk yuk
  4. went and sat "War of the Worlds" with my coworker DH. It was fun, we are getting teased about 'dating' even though there is nothing like that there. oh well. we're good friends, it was a good movie, but not a happy make you feel good type of movie. if you get my point.
  5. did my laundry, took ballet class, oh and checked out a few books for my pleasure. many of them are off a reading list i recieved from one of the writers (Katya) from the 100 Board. good stuff.
  6. today is finally friday. plus it is payday, halleighluiah (sp, i can never remember...)
  7. i found out that my good friend Dr. Teeth, broke up w/his gf that wanted to give it another go. don't know what that means for me yet, all i know is that i want a few more serious relationships before i get married. and if he is one of them,then great. if not, we're good friends, and i enjoy the time we spend together. he he he.
i think that is it for now...have a fun weekend y'all! (not that anyone reads this....oh well.)
