Graduation for USU Southwest was last Friday, and it was fantastic! It was held in the Snow College music buliding, and everything looked great. I didn't actually have time to listen to the speakers, but I did get to hand out programs, scoop a whole lot of ice cream, and take some beautiful flowers home!

It was a very busy day, so unfortunately these are the only pictures I was able to take...
Can I just say that the Bed Bath & Beyond ice cream scoop is pretty much amazing? Because it is...
Can I also tell you how happy it made me that I could have these in my apartment without sneezing non-stop? Because it made me WAY happy! :D

8 GBs Of Awesomeness!

Being in my fourth year of college, my life is basically on my flash drive. Back in the day I decided that an 8 GB flash drive would be a great investment... So I purchased one and it changed my life!

A couple weeks ago when I was using it, I realized that it had started to bend a little bit. It scared me to death because I thought I was going to lose EVERYTHING! So I quickly went online to find a new one so I could backup all of my hard work. :)

I found one that looked pretty cool, so I logged into Russell's account and purchased it! It came in the mail on Monday, and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it! I was expecting it to be small, but SERIOUSLY?! It's tiny!

So I decided to show you a picture so you could get a feel for what I'm talking about. In this photo you see my old flash drive, a penny, and my new flash drive. Awesome, right? :) I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty excited about it!

Cute Toes!

I know what you're thinking right now since you just read the title of this're thinking, "ShaNeil is such a liar! Those toes are NOT cute!"

But don't the toenails look AMAZING?! I have the best friend in the whole entire world! Her name is Erin, and I don't just love her because she paints my toenails. She goes to Dixie, and I miss her so much! :( I always try to get her to come here with me, but I guess she loves being where she can wear flip flops all the time.

Not that I blame her, because I love flip flops! I wear them whenever possible, especially when I have cute toenails to show off! :)

I would like to tell you a little story about when I first came to college. I didn't have any friends here, and I was extremely lonely. After my family dropped me off and headed home I just sat in my bedroom and cried a little. :( It was really hard! I didn't know any of my roommates, but it didn't really matter because none of them had moved in yet.

While I was sitting there feeling bad for myself someone knocked on my door. I opened it to find four boys with big smiles on their faces. They introduced themselves and then asked what my name is. I told them, and one boy asked how to spell it. I spelled it as one of them wrote it down on paper. I'm not gonna lie, I thought they were weirdos!

Then they said, "Sweet! You're on our frisbee team now. We'll let you know when the games start!" I argued that I had never played frisbee before, but they came back with, "That's too bad...we already wrote your name down. I guess you're just gonna have to learn!" So I did. And I loved it!

It didn't take me very long to figure out that owning a light up frisbee is all it takes to be cool in college. Obviously, I purchased one immediately. I have been playing frisbee ever since. :)

So...yesterday my little brother, Jace, came to visit Russell and I. It was so fun to have him here! Russell took him gold panning, then we introduced him to ultimate frisbee and volleyball. He even got to play in our intramurals games, AND he scored! He was incredible! I had no idea that he could play like that! :)

He's only in eighth grade, but he told me that he can't wait to come to Snow just so he can play frisbee!

The Blind Side

So, I don’t watch very many movies these days. It doesn’t really bother me, but sometimes I just want to see something new. I have been listening to people all around me talk about how much they love The Blind Side, but I just hadn’t had the opportunity to watch it.

I know this movie is probably old news to a lot of you, but I wanted to see it SO bad! I told Russell that I wanted to see it, but we were both just too busy to make it happen. Last Friday I had a really long day full of studying, tests, homework, facebook, work, and more homework. I’ll just say it—I was burnt out!

When Russell got back from work I could tell that he’d had a long day too.
He told me that he wasn’t going to do anymore homework that day, so he thought we should go to the redbox. So we did. We went to the Wal-Mart redbox. And to the redbox at Maverick. And then to the one at Kents. We even went to the redbox at McDonalds. The Blind Side was nowhere to be found, so Russell and I went back to our apartment empty-handed. It was kind of depressing, I’m not going to lie! :(

I just plopped down on the couch, and in an attempt to cheer me up, Russell suggested that we watch Monk instead. So we made dinner together, and then when it was ready we decided to have a picnic in front of the TV. Russell went to put his pjs on, while I was getting Monk ready. Getting ready to watch Monk wasn’t too tough since it was already in the DVD player, so all I had to do was turn on the TV.

Guess what I saw when I turned on the television?! Yep, it was The Blind Side! When I turned I saw Russell peeking around the corner looking like he was pretty proud of himself.

Wasn’t that super thoughtful of him?! I knew there was a reason I married him! :)
