Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat

There are no words, really. It was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! I couldn't have been happier. Just go see it, promise? Seriously- I just cannot explain the magic of it to you. You have to experience it for yourself. Go get your tickets... NOW! The dancing was just so unbelievable and the sets and wardrob was so extravegant and just wonderful. Jill, seriously- I think you'll love the dancing... I thought of you! All of you! It's SOOOOOOO much different than the 1st 2, yet so magnificent. Now, don't you dare mock me for this... but- I cried. Yes, I cried and I'm not ashamed. Let me explain. First of all, you have to see the end and hear the last song to understand it!!! I bet you'll get emotional too! I won't ruin the suprise though. 2nd, It's the end of an era! It's like when I finished the last Harry Potter book. I cried because it's all over. BOOO!!! I want more high school musical!!!!!! The only thing that gives me hope is that there will be something else. There was Harry Potter, then HSM, now Twilight. So, I'm ready to find the next best thing I guess. But nothing can thouch HSM. I'm for real. It is incredibly entertaining. The whole thing. Once Troy's face popped up on the screen and covered that whole movie theater screen... I knew that my $7.50 was already worth it! I'm considering using my grocery money this month to go see it once a week at least. :)
Just go see it. You won't regret it!

The Best of Both Worlds

Tonight was our ward FHE Halloween party. We origionally wanted to be Gabriella and Sharpay, but we couldn't find costumes... so Steph had the GENIUS idea of being Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana!! PERFECT! So here we are! We had a great time, and can't wait for the actual Halloween night when we can perfect our custumes. We carried around my iPod in my purse set up to some little speakers playing "the best of both worlds" so that everyone would know who we were. Only the really cool kinds knew... that's right. If my siblings are reading this... please show your children! I feel that they would be so proud of their Aunt Jenni!! I'm just representing for them. 4 MORE DAYS UNTIL HSM 3 GUYS!!!!!!!! Anyway, here are some pictures of our wonderful friends and their radical costumes!

With the Bishop!

Have we mentioned that we had fun?

I just cannot explain how wonderful it was to have my mom and sister come and visit me. I am so lucky! Seriously! I feel so happy about the whole thing that I don't even know where to start. I love Rexburg and I love college life and so I love when I get the chance to share it with people and show them how I live in this radical little town. It was especially fun because mom and Em have seen Rexburg change through the years. As Emily would say, I love in "deluxe" Rexburg. I gotta say, it is pretty high class and Emily did live here during the stone age apparantly. I mean, back then, Jolyn's didn't even have Smoothies... what a shame. I was so glad to open her eyes to the wonderful world of the new ever changing Rexburg.

We stayed in a hotel because my apartment is pretty dinky and it was so fun. Just hanging out with 2 people who I love so much and laughing and playing was totally what I needed. I'm a stupid school nazi freak, and they help me to realize that it's ok, and in fact, GOOD- to have fun! I just loved every second of it. I never wanted them to leave! They made me just feel so happy all weekend, there was always something to look forward to. AND- guys, I only missed 1 point... 1POINT on that test I took while you were here... I think you're my good luck charms, COME BACK!!!

They totally spoiled me rotten too :) Between all the delicious food, bookstore trips, and new broom (YES!), I was treated like royalty. Once again, I'M SO LUCKY! Basically, I could go on and on but I had a BLAST!!! Everything from laughing at the exercising baby, listening to mom snore, and surviving the snow... it was all fun in my book because of who I was with. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! You both have no idea what life savers you were to me. I know it was supposed to be your vacation, but thanks for taking care of me the whole time!

P.S- the snow left with you guys... It must have just been a special treat for my weather spoiled sister!

Adventures in Utah

Conference weekend was great! It's taken me forever to blog about it because last week was busy busy busy, but now my wonderful mom and sister are here, so I have some down time to catch up! I went down to conference with Brooke and Steph. We were so lucky and got tickets to the Saturday morning session. We stayed with my wonderful aunt and uncle Dan and Janeen the first night! It was SO FUN! It was so great to see them. I mean really, they are hilarious and when I'm with my Aunt Janeen, I can see myself. Like I know where so many of my traits came from... I am a Jolley!They were SO kind to let us stay and feed us. Ok so... conference morning... let me paint a picture for you haha!! We had to leave the house at 7:30 because my aunt and uncle live about 25 minutes from SLC with traffic. Well, we got up at 7:05. YIKES! so we didn't shower and left in a hurry hurry hurry and it was POORING down rain! SO, when we got there, we looked like bums who just rolled out of bed and then by the time we got to our seats, we were wet rats. AWESOME!! We just stuck with the theory that the pioneers never showered to listen to the prophet speak, so we were just trying to get in the real feel of things! Below is our beautiful appearance. Good thing we didn't run into the prophet!
But guess who we did run into?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!! SISTER LONI NOCK!!!!!!!!! I love my Lon Don so much!!! I have 5 friends serving in SLC! 4 on temple square and 1 in SLC. I got to see 3 of them and it was fabulous! She was just the best sister missionary I ever did see and it made my day!
After we spent a great day with Brooke's family, we headed on down to Provo to spend the night with TIFFANY AND COLLIN!!!!!! These are FABULOUS people!!! They are 2 of my best friends from here at school and I just love them so much. I miss them now that they're not in Rexburg anymore. They were so good to us! Seriously- SUCH a cute married couple. We had a blast with them and were SO thankful for their hospitality! Tiffany Hilton - I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
Now, even though we were having so much fun, we were still enjoying the amazing talks given by our leaders. I was talking to my boss, Brother Tippetts, about how I used to never care about conference, but now I really do. I can honestly say that I look forward to it, and love to hear what guidance they have. I just felt filled and good after I listened. I'm positive that these men and women are called of God and I felt so lucky to be in the same room as them. It was a great weekend and spiritual upliftment and fun with my favorite friends :).
