Murder Mystery

So the picture below is from a murder mystery dinner that we did about a month ago. It was a chinese theme and was called Hoo Hung Woo. It was hysterical. There were 8 of us and we had it at my house. We made chinese food, decorated our house with Asian paraphanelia that we borrowed from our awesome friend Jamie and my amazing old roommate Stephanie. We watched a video on how to apply Geisha makeup and used Amanda's theater makeup to paint our faces. It was a ton of fun and we can't wait to do another one!

And no, I was not the murderer...

Do I look Chinese?

Year of Impulsiveness

So this year has been designated The Year Of Impulsiveness. Each of the last 3 years we have had themes for the year. (2006 - Year of Boldness, 2007 - Year of Sassyness) My friends Amanda, Becca, and Joy have all been a part of these years. It was after much thoughtful searching of the dictionary and thesaurus that Clark (Becca's husband) helped us determine that this year is IMPULSIVENESS! I am so excited about it! Amanda and I did a couple impulsive things to start of the year when we went to California for New Year's, but nothing too impulsive has occurred since then. Until yesterday...

What impulsive thing did I do yesterday, you ask. Well, my friend Jessie and I booked a cruise. Yup, we got online, found a great deal and had it all booked within about 30 minutes. It was great!!!! I am so excited and can't wait for April 26th when I can get out of here and head to Mexico! We also got our friend Melissa and her sister to decide that they want to come with us and they booked it for them this afternoon. It is going to be amazing!! I can't wait!

So, here is to the Year Of Impulsiveness!! And maybe something impulsive will happen on the cruise.... ;)

Best Valentine's EVER!

Normally I don't look forward to Valentine's Day. It's not as much fun when you aren't dating someone seriously, but last night was the greatest Valentine's Day EVER! At least, the greatest Valentine's Day of my 26 year existence. And I had been looking forward to it for over a month! Not normal.
Anywho, my good friend Sara H Bohe texted me about a month ago and told me something wonderful and amazing that we both had somehow overlooked. The soon-to-be greatest movie of all time (maybe a bit exaggerated) was coming out on Valentine's Day. What incredible movie am I talking about? Yup, you guessed it....

How we both had not been aware of this glorious moment is beyond me, but greatfully we found out in enough time to purchase our tickets way in advance and plan an incredible girls night out with almost every other single gal in provo.

And it surely did not disappoint!!!!!! The movie is very different from the first one in the storyline, but just as amazing and had absolutely incredible dancing. And the best part...a little cameo by the one and only Tyler Gage! (real name: Channing Tatum. YUM!) Also, the main guy is this movie is just as yummy!! I didn't even want to leave the theater when it was over, it was that good!
After the movie, all us singles went to Red Robin and enjoyed stuffing ourselves on bottom-less fries and chocolate milkshakes. It was amazing. It's going to be a tough Valentine's Day to beat.

In fact, I DARE any guy to beat it next year! ;)

A Couple Things...

First of all, I can't believe that it is February!!! Seriously, where does time go?!? January was a good month though and I kept basically all of my new years resolutions. I met the monthly goals I set for myself and I'm excited about that. Now onto another month and more goals!

Second, I want today to be done! I have a love/hate relationship with fridays. I love fridays because it's the end of the work week, but I hate fridays because I just want it to be saturday already!!! But K-Dub, J and I made it a good friday by taking a long lunch break to go to Cracker Barrel. Yummy!

Third, I can't find my wallet!! The only problem when we went to Cracker Barrel was when I grabbed my purse to pay for my lunch and my wallet was no where to be found. What?!? I had it this morning when I went to the gas station, but it is no longer there. I searched all through my purse (it's not that big) and even through my car and J's car, but to no avail. I called the gas station to see if I maybe left it there and they had it, but no. My wallet is lost and I am freaking out! (Just ask my dad, I called him crying. I'm such a baby...) I think what may have happened is that I put my purse down to get my keys out and I think I may have set my wallet down too, instead of putting it in my purse. I've called the gas station and even gone in to make sure it wasn't still sitting there, but they say they don't have my wallet. It actually wouldn't even surprise me if I accidentally left it and someone came and took it. It is kind of a shady gas station. I even asked the owner if they could look on surveillance tapes to see what I did with it, but they say that they don't have cameras showing the area where I had set my purse down. Did I mention that I'm freaking out?!?!?! I've called Cracker Barrel to see if maybe it fell out under the table. Twice. Nothing.

The worst part is that my temple recommend is in my wallet. Now it wouldn't be so bad because I could get a new one on sunday with my bishop, except that my aunt is getting married tomorrow. In the temple, which makes having a recommend pretty important! Again, have I mentioned that I am FREAKING OUT!!!!! I guess I need to call the bank and my credit card company and the drivers license division and the library and all those places that I have cards/memberships at and have them do what they do when this kind of stuff happens. I've never lost my wallet before, I have no idea what the protocol is.

I think the first thing I need to do is call my Bishop to try and get a new recommend tonight! Hopefully he'll give me a new one, even though I've said some not very nice words today...

Wish me luck!!!
