(Spray)Paint it Gold.

I was going to see if I could go all summer without another post. But I decided I was out of place asking others to update when its been over a month for me. Well Rexburg is nice. It’s really hot and dry. We rarely have rain (which is a nice thing when all I have to get around is a bike) Nothing is really new here. I’ve just been doing a lot of school work, working on raising my GPA. I’m hoping to pull off a 4.0 this semester (we will see). I ride my bike everywhere. I recently gave it a new paint job. I spray painted it gold. I’ve already been receiving a lot more attention for it. People must think I’m so wealthy on my gold D.I. bike. Anyway, we have been doing some bridge jumping and have had about 4 trips to the lake over the last few weeks. In late May my roommates and I took a trip to Las Vegas for Memorial Day weekend. We ate plenty of IN-N-OUT and saw plenty of sites. The weather was really nice when we were there too. Since Vegas not much else has been going on. Rexburg got a REDBOX (the $1.00 a night movie rental) and soon we will have a temple, so I feel like the “REXBURG BECOMING THE NEXT PROVO” predictions are coming along. About two weeks ago we had the 50 lap spirit relay. Last year our ward wore black clothing head to toe and placed 4th in the overall relay. This semester 56th ward was dressed in red and I’m not sure if we placed because my roommates and I left right after we ran. The first day of rain that Rexburg had had in a long time happened to fall on the night of the relay. I was UNfortunate enough to be running the opening lap for my wards team. For those of you that know me, know that I am NOT a runner. And for some reason when you are running in a pack with other people you just become burned out really easy. So we had to run the opening lap into the stadium which WASN’T very fun at all. School is going well. I’m doing fairly well in all my classes. My “FUN” class is probably also my hardest class. Culinary Arts. I’m learning a lot of great techniques in that class but there is also a lot of busywork and paperwork that go a long with all the fun things we do. School pretty much runs my life, which is probably a good thing; because that is the whole reason I am in Rexburg. So besides attending a few themed parties (Black&White and 80’s) here and there, a little lake action, a few bike rides, hiking 'R' Mountain, shopping, and lounging, I am a 100% devoted student (I know my parents loved reading that). As I’m sure you can all tell, I don’t have much to blog about which is why I haven’t made an update in quite a while. I hope to be updating more regularly though, and I hope to see the same from many of you.

Sara, nice update. I almost gave up on you! But after reading everyone's updates (except Lisa, of course :) I was still extremely bored, so I checked your just in HOPES that I would not be let down. Sure enough, an updated post! Love it! Hmmm, are you coming down to play for July 4th? We'll REALLY go to the lake this time! It's hot and I'm ready to hit it down on Utah Puddle!

Nice to see you are still alive - you better be planning a trip down here soon because I promise our baby is coming tomorrow night and she needs to meet her favorite second cousin (I think that is what you are to her)! Sounds like school is busy, busy - come down when you need a break!

WOMANN!! I love you... can't wait to be down there with you :D

Okay Sara,
COme on down the test out your culinary arts skills. I can just see you buzzing around on the gold bike. You could enter one of the 40 parades put on in the summer here in Cache Valley. There are always gold bikes. You are one photogenic babe. What a cutie. We love you.

So John was threatening to take your link off of our blog, because he only links to "active" blogs. :) Anyway, Anya has been wondering where you have been for the last couple of months. After showing her the gold bike, she now understands you are busy starting a new trend at BYUI.

Sara, I'm glad we use comments on our blogs instead of emails to communicate... It's awesome!

And the threat? I was hoping that it would have reach you a lot sooner. I've been telling your family members that for a long time, hoping they would tell you that and sneakily causing some real motivation... Maybe it worked... ;) Afterall, we recently got a great shot of your golden bike...

Hey Sara! Great to have seen you on the 3rd (and part of the 4th). Even better reading your blog. It's all good that you're doing the student thing...you'll have time to do the other stuff later. Did you get to try out your culinary skills at Diane's after I left? Hopefully we can meet up again sometime!
