A Small Adventure

This whole year I have been trying to get Clark to hike the Y with me but there hasn't been a good time for us to go. I didn't have school today -- which has been amazing-- so I decided to walk to the trail head and hike it. Little did I know that I am in really terrible shape and seriously almost died once I got to the top but I  eventually made it and loved every minute of it! 
(The only thing that could have made it better would have been having a dog to do it with me) 

Here is a picture of the Y from campus that I took on a rainy day last week. How beautiful is that? 

I made it to the trail head!

For anyone who doesn't go to BYU/live in Provo here is the hike. I decided to take the trail to the top of the "Y". that last switchback was a huge killer for me!

I made it to the top and decided to take a picture of the view and found my house!

Just a couple of tips when hiking the Y:
1. don't listen to your ipod, it totally ruins the experience
2. running down is a lot more fun and actually easier than walking down

It was such a beautiful day I just had to take a picture of this street. the trees were so pretty and the blossoms smelt so good once I got into my neighborhood. 

I freaking love spring in Provo. Here are some tulips that popped up along our driveway a few weeks ago! 

This has nothing to do with the hike and is not from today but Clark is just so dang cute. 
Love him.

You know what is SO annoying about finals?

For the final that I took today, 
I was told by my professor that it was NOT going to be comprehensive except for like 10 questions that were to "test our long term memory".
There were 90 questions total and like 46 T/F questions.
So naturally, I studied from 1 to 7:30 (that is 6 and a half hours, peeps!) 
for one final. 
with the hopes of completely Acing the test
No Problem--right?

Definitely HALF of the questions were from the first test 
--- of course those questions included all of the above, just A and B etc. 
(Hello TRICKY!)  
And probably about 15 percent of the study guide was actually on the test!!
I was super sad when I turned my test in and found out I didn't get an A....

The funny thing, for the amount of time I studied it only took me 27 minutes to take.
Complete. Wasted. Day.
{i hate you finals}
Thanks for letting me vent.

On a brighter note, I got $125 from book sell backs!
(5 of which I already spent on Subway for dinner right before I took my test)
Definitely going to City Creek this weekend and spending the rest on something cute!

Enjoy what has been going on in my head for the past week. 
Sorry it cuts out really quick...

The Wig.

For Easter weekend Clark and I went up to my grandparent's house in Park City. 
My sister Ashley (aka "the wig"-- we all have ridiculous nick names for each other) and her family were there.
We had sooo much fun with them.

Ok some of you may know this already but my sisters are seriously my best friends.
I have the absolute best sisters (and brother for that matter) in the world.
I just love them so much.
Anyway, do you want to know what the wig did for me?
I had a HUGE research paper due on Monday that I was really freaking out about.
The wig realized this.
She was sooo sweet and got ALL of my reference for my paper!
she spent hours looking for research articles about infant-father attachments.
How sweet is that?
And then she even edited my paper once I was finished!
(thank you to the others who edited it as well)
Is that not the nicest sibling ever?
Aw I just love her sooo much
she seriously saved my butt!!

As a tribute to her and our Easter weekend here are some pictures of the fun times we had.

I love this little baby!

The cute little Peterson Family

We love each other. 

Wig got a new mac computer and apple's new photobooth has some sweet pic options. 
this is the chipmunk!

I look really crazy but Clark seriously looks like a real person hahahaha

This is Clark's favorite pic of me. 

I love you so much wig! 
Thank you for being such a great sister!!
