Truth Tuesday

So I just am in a ranting mood and being my last week of summer classes, I am really just tired.
So here goes truth Tuesday:

1. I really do not want to act out a Shakespeare play Dr. Kramer. Yet alone any play for that matter. I really do not wish to make a fool out of myself only to get an A. If it were up to me, I would play the tree... and actually I may suggest it.

2. Me and milk products do not go well together... enough said.

3. When I look at my arms I feel like they are extremely tan until someone else walks into the room.

4. Today is one of those days that I am not willing to make dinner at all, to the point that I am okay with not eating at all.

5. Yes Spencer, I was totally picking my nose when you walked into the office this morning.

6. I keep having a weird dream about quadruplet... wha?

7. I want to pursue photography so that any picture that I take looks good enough to hang on a wall.

8. I am writing this to avoid my homework.

9. I really like strawberries.

I stopped at 9 because I like the number 9. So sorry if this post was boring, and more to update soon... my brother was in town :)

Summer happenings

This summer has been crazy busy and so many things have been happening on top of school and work. We have enjoyed ourselves though and here is to catching up on the recent happenings.

Garyn and Jill got a new puppy and his name is Pudge.Their last day in Utah we celebrated the fourth of July, by eating red white and blue pancakes, watching the parade, and having a fun afternoon at the park eating barbeque and playing baseball. While we were at the barbeque, Pudge kept getting his head stuck in the red solo cup. It was so cute and funny... Pudge also made Kasey consistently remind me how much he wanted a dog. One day Kasey we will have a dog...

We celebrated that night with snowcones and fireworks.

It was so much fun and hokulia is now my favorite snowcone place ever... but its a bummer that it is always so incredibly busy.
The snowcones are so huge, and I am not exaggerating when I say that they are the size of my head. My favorite flavors have to be the lemonade and dreamsicle... and its nice to have ice cream in there every once in a while too.

I took my incredibly awesome friend Katri and her daughter Kenzie to get a snowcone and I think they liked it too.
I enjoyed spending time with the Koehle's and I am so glad I may have a few more chances this summer to see them again!

A few weddings have occurred recently including my friends Brittany, Katie, and Corinne, as well as Kasey's friends Marc and Andrew and his cousin Niels. We were so glad to be able to be a part of the sealing ceremony and celebrations in Manti with Kasey's family and it was a beautiful and perfect day.

I was also able to snag this beautiful photo of the temple

On a side note... my brother will come to visit this week, so more on that soon :)

Soo, the other day Kasey was like... Kara I need to shave. /he had grown quite a beard...
because curious as I am... I asked him to leave a mustache and I may have just regretted even suggesting that...

Now as for judgement on this... please leave your comment because I may get a kick out of hearing them... my mom said he looked like enigo montoya... hahahha

To expound on the mustache dilemma... here is a convenient mustache chart... love it!

Kasey is special to me and he recently had a birthday... recent as in last month!
So I really tried to surprise him but I did not want to throw a surprise party as I had the year before. He also did not know what to expect but he was expecting something and I feel bad that he was a little disappointed (as he should of been) for events that happened out of our control.
So basically I snuck in some helium balloons hoping to have him come home to them with sweet notes each explaining reasons that I love him.
When I got home however... the "new" tenant living in our basement was smoking... and I swell up when I am around smoke because I am allergic... no bueno. 
Needless to say, when I got home our "new" neighbor became "old" and our landlord had kicked her out so the surprise with notes didn't happen :(

I also made my very first pie... and it was SOOO delicious it didn't stay long because our mouth gobbled it up so fast.
The rest of the night is welll interesting and was not too good either... basically a very nice friend came over till 1 AM and we were tired and worn out...... but the pie was so good.

So to end this post I have a picture that is what it is... and its real I took it and laughed in a somewhat disturbed manner
I have lots more to catch up on but till thenn there is tomorrow!
