Reason 108: Familia

Tuesday, October 26, 2010.

This weekend my family came to Provo :) :) :).  Gran, pops, mom, Andrew Aaron, and little Hannah.  It was an insane game- it was pouring rain for the two hours before the game (when the girls are on the field and all the boys are in the locker room- figures).  Luckily, this very nice security man found all of us ponchos.  They were VERRRRY attractive.

See?  Attractive.  It did stop raining and my family came to the game around half time.  These were the flooded sidelines.  It was pretty crazy...

Here is a cute picture of my family :) Except for Aaron and Jason.  Aaron wanted to "house sit" my apartment and Jason was at work. 

Love ♥

Reason 107: Ten Thoughts on Life

Saturday, October 16, 2010.

1. Peanut Butter M&M's are one of the worlds most delicious foods.

2. I love classes this semester.  I feel an obvious shift in my attitude towards education.  I feel like I have gone from "Tell me what you know and I will believe you" to "Tell me what you know and I will questions, research, and thoroughly study until I am convinced."  It's been interesting- but it's made me a better student.  And I think I'm a little more annoying now (haha sorry).

3.  Football is awesome.  I've had a lot of great experiences as well as a lot of great conversations with doctors, chiropractors, athletic trainers, and other medical professionals.  I am just continuously fascinated by the body and football has offered a wealth of available knowledge and experience.

The Football Girls :)

4. I love cooking and having a husband who knows how to cook.  He has taught me a lot.

5. I love the show "House."  What a freaking amazing show!

6. I am so proud of Sister Owens and her desire to go serve the Lord in Russia.  What a cool girl!

This was my 16th birthday on January 2, 2006.
We were at the Cheesecake Factory in Las Vegas.
Just a little flashback :)

7. I am grateful for my medical knowledge and my Professional Rescuer certification.  Today I witnessed a motorcycle accident where the rider, who was not wearing a helmet, did a flip on his bike (hit the brakes too hard to avoid a car) and smashed his head on the road with his neck in flexion.  It was scary, but with Jason's help we were able to get to him and take care of the situation until the EMT's came. While we stabilized his neck and head I thought of all those times that we had to practice on a "victim" and I am grateful we did.

8. I have an awesome husband.  He is so willing to help and he is ridiculously hot.  And smart.
See? Ridiculously hot.
Wake surfing in Lake Powell.

9. We have a new calling as the Dating and Courtship teachers in a Glenwood singles ward.  It's actually really fun- we are using the Marriage and Family Relations manual.  We are enjoying it so far.

10. Happy 18th Birthday to my awesome brother Andrew!  So glad you get to celebrate in Disney World.  And I am THRILLED you decided to come to BYU!
Andrew is so cute, even when he pulls faces.
