January's Happenings

I've been back in Rexburg for just under a month. Here are some of the highlights:

Living with one of my best friends Jenna. I love sharing a room with her and discussions before bed. It's truly a miracle that we get any sleep at all!

Hanging my map of Canada poster. It seriously took me an hour and half a roll of tape to get this poster on the wall only to have it fall down on me at 4:00am.

Attending LeeAnna's mission farewell in Utah.

Jenna's car breaking down on the highway in Utah.

The tower of stools. I'm pretty sure I didn't shut of door completely when I left for FHE. Someone came into our apartment and made this lovely sculpture for us.

The consumption of many Animal Crackers. I added chocolate to the mix this year. They have popular, and I have been told that they are delicious with peanut butter.

Rain Boots

In the slushy Rexburg winters there is really nothing better than rain boots! They allow me to walk though every puddle I see on my way to class, and keep my toes warm and dry. I adore them and wear them nearly everyday.

And they are just so cute!
