Stadium of Fire

My friend got tickets for Stadium of Fire and asked if I wanted to go seeing that I am a lover of fireworks and America and the 4th of July. All I could think/say was 'ring of FIRE!!!' (yeah maybe I need to broaden my movie choices) It was really fun, we saw Braid Paisley, and some AWESOME fireworks, I thought it would be a little bit more patriotic, seeing how its a FREEDOM FESTIVAL on the 4th of July, but it was a little patriotic-ness mixed into a concert and fireworks. Here are some pics I stole from Allison and Holli.

Am I a Nice Girl?

Last night as we were about to say prayers, I was again the last one to put my finger on my nose, but I argued that I ALWAYS have to say the prayer, if not for being fast enough, to being the people pleaser and just saying it because I dont like the awkward silence. Well last night I said I wasn't doing it. My roommates tried to guilt me into saying it and just waiting until I caved. They got pretty close, but I stood my ground(its the small victories). Then this morning as I was doing my morning routine I checked and saw this article, and since I'm always up for highlighting my good qualities I thought I'd read it, ummm not what I was expecting. But slide 2 caught me- hello- could have just posted a picture of me, and then the slide about perfect food...
I went home for lunch and told Cindy about it. Its now on hold at the library, but Cindy was sure to remind me that it probably doesn't have any pictures- not sure how far I'll get into it. Maybe this will teach me to say 'no' and be competitive, well its worth a shot. right?

So back in December I graduated, but UVU only does 1 graduation ceremony in April. I decided not to walk, but as my roommate was gathering all her graduation things (she finished in April) I kinda wanted to have pictures, because it really didn't seem real. I wasn't all about going to the ceremony and stuff, so she let me borrow her stuff and Libby and I went and took pictures, I think it makes it a little more legit.

Tulip Festival

Every year Thanksgiving Point has a Tulip festival right around graduation. Since Ive lived here/they've had the festival, Ive wanted to go. Well this year my friend Sherstin got a group together and we went. Some of the tulips hadn't bloomed yet due to the cold and rainy spring this year, but it was beautiful, I love every chance I get to go to the gardens. The only thing I can think of that would make it over the top is if they found a way to have magnolia trees, and a swamp like area with Cypress Trees and Spanish moss!!! Here are some pics I took. Tulips are a new(last few years) favorite. I like how its just a stem and them the tulip and I like them right before and just as the bloom, I guess its the sreamlineness- if that's a word, that I like. Also I noticed a lot of daffodils. They are a favorite because of Big Fish, and this clip from the movie. ahhh. stop around min 4:36
