Collosal California Caucus '08

So last weekend we had a long weekend due to Martin Luther King, who we love in our apartment (We have a poster of him and his speech up in our living room). We decided to take advantage of the long weekend and headed down to Yorba Linda, california with Blake who is from there. We drove all night on Thursday and welcomed the warm weather we woke up to. Blake's parents were kind enough to let us stay at their house with them, and Blake and his friend John were nice enough to think of fun things that 4 girls would like to do.

We had a bonfire on the beach,which has always been something i wanted to do, and it was as good as i had always hoped it would be. We saw LA, went to the mall, ate at the local places (which Rylie really wanted to do), got our nails done and seriously just had a blast hanging out in california. I would go into detail about everything.. but then this would be SOOO long!!! So here are some of my pictures from the weekend: (they are a bit out of order)
Sunday me and my roommates went for a walk with Blake around this little man made lake area. it was SOO pretty.

This is in Hollywood. Notice the Statue of Liberty is missing its head, like on the movie Cloverfield which we saw and got our money back for.

On monday before we left we went with Blakes mom to get our nails done. It was SOOO fun!

the 4-1-1

okay soo i have been back at school for a week.. and it feels like i've been back for at least 3.. its been really busy since i've been back. but its been a lot of fun. soo here are some pictures from the past week!

Our new best friends live in apt 3-305 and on saturday before their roommate steve returned home they decided to remove all his furniture from his room and hide it in the bathroom. Then Blake decided to borrow someones dog (how you go about borrowing dogs i don't know) and had the dog waiting for steve when he returned home. We set up a hidden camera in the room and the video was well worth it.. and steves reaction. After we went to the nickelcade and i really wish i had some pictures from that because it was really lots of fun.

So Sara and I are finally going to the same school, and i love seeing her on campus. These pictures are from the first day of the semester.. we played with these basketball things for like a half hour. well okay mostly sara and brad did.

Monday night was the big LSU OHIO state game . We all wore LSU stuff all day as we had to with 2 roommates being from Louisiana and then had our party that night watching the game. LSU of course came off with a win and we couldn't have been happier. i wish i had pictures of the whole group that was there.. but we couldn't let the people cheering for ohio in our pictures.

Soo last night we decided to go bowling at the Wilk.. but we had to wait for a lane, and there was a dance upstairs and we hit that up for a bit. it was a ton of fun. I found some facepaint and below are my creations for the night.

Needless to say.. bowling is not my forte.. i scored a 68. HAHAH. We almost won free bowling for naming 3 songs, but someone got there first.. thanks to Angie for helping me look up the songs!

Here are some pictures from my trip home over the Christmas break. It was soo fun at home. i loved being able to see some friends i hadn't for a while and to be with my family. We had a lot of laughs and it was a really good christmas. Tyken is ADORABLE and Brylie is just so much fun all the time. I miss everyone at home so much already.
