Laugh A Little

I don't know about you, but I've had a rough week! I decided to share a couple of college jokes with you that brightened my day a little! :)


After the college boy delivered the pizza to Bud's trailer house, Bud asked, "What is the usual tip?"

"Well," replied the youth, "this is my first trip here, but the other guys say if I get a quarter out of you, I'll be doing great."

"Is that so?" snorted Bud. "Well, just to show them how wrong they are, here's five dollars."

"Thanks," replied the youth, "I'll put this in my school fund."

"What are you studying?" asked Bud.

The lad smiled and said, "Applied psychology."


A kid called up his mom from his college and asked her for some money, because he ran out of it. His mom said, "Sure, sweetie. I'll will send you some money. You also left your calculus book here when you visited 2 weeks ago. Do you want me to send that up too?"

"Uhh, oh yeah, okay," responded the kid.

So his mom wrapped the book along with the checks up in a package and went to the post office to mail the money and the book.

When she gets back, her husband asked, "Well how much did you give the boy his time?"

She said, "Oh, I wrote 2 checks, one for $20 and the other for $1000 out to him."

"That's $1020!" yelled her husband. Are you crazy?"

"Don't worry, Hon," she said. "I taped the $20 check to the cover of his book, but I put the $1000 one somewhere between the pages in chapter 19!"

Spring Break!

Russell and I have been really excited for spring break for weeks now! We made big plans to go to St. George and I was really looking forward to it. :) But as RAs, we got to stay for half of the break to be on duty. We were even able to work it out with BOTH of our jobs so we could leave on Thursday morning! :)

So...on Tuesday we decided that we better get our tires rotated before our big trip. Of course we found out that there were some way more serious issues with our car.

To make a long story short, we could not go and I am sad. That is all.

Help Me Mom!

Guess what I did last week?! You probably won't believe I posted a picture to prove it.

I cooked a chicken!

I was scared as soon as I unwrapped it, so I had to call my mom to help me...

It's Amazing!

A month or so ago I was in Nephi with my family, and my oldest sister had a pretty cool water bottle. It was pink. I decided that I liked it a whole bunch, so when I got back to Ephraim I googled it because let's face it, I google everything! So I was looking at some different Camelbak water bottles to make sure they were like Velecia's amazing pink one. Apparently all that online shopping was exhausting, because I ended up taking a nap on the couch!

Just last week I received a package in the mail. It had my maiden name instead of my married name, so I was a little bit confused... I opened it up to find two Camelbak water bottles that look exactly like this. Yeah, not as cool as my sister's... At that point I was SO confused! I knew that I had looked at them online, but I'm pretty sure I would have remembered buying them. Plus, I would have ordered the right kind.

So I took them back to my apartment thinking that I was going to have to tell Russell that I apparently shop while I'm sleeping. When I showed him the mysterious water bottles he had a big smile on his face, and he looked pretty proud.

Apparently I left the website up while I was napping. When Russell came home he saw it and thought to himself, "Self, I bet my beautiful wife is dying to have a cool Camelbak water bottle. I think I will purchase one for each of us and surprise her."

So that is exactly what he did. :) Too bad I left up the wrong website! I thought that was really thoughtful of him, and he earned some "good husband" points for his efforts. I wasn't going to tell him that it was the wrong kind because he was so proud of himself, but he figured it out...

So when we were going to Bountiful last weekend we stopped at a store and saw the amazing waterbottles for a very reasonable price, so we purchased one for each of us. Mine is bright green, and it is amazing. :)
