I love Jason Mraz!!

I went to a Jason Mraz concert on the 26th of September! It was so amazing and fantastic and it completed me. He is such a beautiful man and has such a beautiful voice!

I went with my cousin, Lydia and my friends Rachel and Elina. We drove to Nampa, ID on Saturday and stayed overnight at my aunt's house in Boise. An all-around fantastic trip!
G. Love & Special Sauce opened and they were also very good. I love Jason Mraz!

Homeless in NYC

So I had another crazy dream last's a frequent occurrence. It started off with me working for the railroad company. I was digging out the rocks and stones underneath the railroad because we were relocating it or something. My cousin, Luke, was also there and I remember it being really hot, but then they supplied us with some candy and water. Then while I was digging the underneath of the rails turned into a sort of mine looking place and it was suddenly air conditioned and lit up...random and weird.

Then my brain shifted gears and suddenly I was wandering around NYC and I noticed two children, a brother and sister, around 10 and 12 years of age also wandering around. I noticed that they were begging for money so I decided to go help them out. I realized that they were orphans and homeless...just like me. So I told them that I would take care of them and to follow me because I knew the best sleeping spots. So we were wandering around and I helped them steal a jacket and blanket from this old looking store. But I didn't realize that this store had a special kind of security was a cat. So this cat runs out of the store to go and tell the owner as soon as we had taken the jacket and blanket and we knew we were in trouble. So I told them to run and I would buy them some time by talking to the owner. So I was explaining how lovely all of the items in the store were to the owner while these two kids were climbing onto the roof...weird. Then I somehow escaped and met up with them and we were at one of my favorite sleeping spots, when the owner of the store found us and we knew we were busted...then I woke up. Awesome.

Babies! But not my babies...

Yesterday I got to hold a brand new baby! It was amazing! It is my old roommate and friend Jen Cochran's baby. Her name is Liza and she is adorable. I have never held such a brand new baby, she wasn't even 24 hours old. Life is such a miracle!

Territorial birds

So last night I had another weird dream. I dreamed that a bunch of yellow birds flew into my room and Karlee, my roommate, said "oh no, those birds are territorial and it looks like they chose you to be their territory." haha. then the birds started pecking me and so I ran screaming into the living room where all of my roommates just stared at me. So I ran outside to try to get rid of them, and they got lost in the I come back in and my roommate Katie says, "Don't you know that if you would have just remained calm, they would have left you alone?" And I was like well thanks for telling me that after I ran screaming past you. Yep. That is all.

My 22nd Birthday

On September 11, 2009 I turned the magical 22 years of age. My roommates who are awesome made me a cake and Lauren, Rachel's sister, made me cupcakes. I felt so loved. They are awesome!
Here is the beautiful and delicious cake! I also drove to Utah with Rachel to go see Jenessa and we had a party in Utah with some old friends. It was a great birthday! I have great friends.
Another highlight was when my family called me and sang me a beautiful rendition of happy birthday. It was amazing and one of a kind. Also note the red, white and blue --to be patriotic and remember what also happened on this day. I love our country!

So I always have really weird and crazy dreams, you should just know that. So I thought it would be a good idea to post some of my most memorable and very strange dreams, or just ones that I remember. So that's going to happen.

Last night I dreamed that I was dancing down some stairs, and by dancing I mean mostly just waving my arms and twirling in circles. I believe I was dancing to try and burn some calories...Anyway, so in my dream, it would pause and then there would be a narrator, to narrate my dream. what!? who has narrators in their dreams? oh, I do. so I was paused on the stairs during my dance and a voice goes, "Stephanie loved to dance, she would dance everywhere she went." Then it unpaused and I continued to dance, then a very attractive man walked by and said something about my dancing and I said something to the extent of "don't be jealous." Then as he kept walking my dream was paused again and the narrator goes, "Little did Stephanie know that this was the man of her future" or something lame. And that is all I can remember...but really dreams? A narrator? That was a first for me.

My family is awesome

This is my whole family. They are amazing and I love them to death!
These are my two adorable nephews! Bradley and Cameron. They are the cutest.
Here we are on top of the world at 10,000 feet. It was very windy and cold but beautiful! (Me, Ben, Matt, Marg)
Me and my siblings + mother + Cam-jam on the farm.
We had an amazing family reunion this summer and we went to Yellowstone, Montana, Wyoming, and Nevada. It was the best times ever! This is me and all of my siblings, they are the greatest. (Matt, Ashley, Ben, Marg, Me)

We also decided to go through a car wash and lie in the back of the was amazing! We all got very soapy/waxy/wet and I loved when it dried the car and tried to blow your clothes off. I recommend it for all!

My Crazy Summer

There was skinning a cow and grinding it into hamburger. Awesome. It completed me.

There was some fishing and crazy cliff jumping.

There was driving swathers, rakers, and semi-trucks.
And there was beautiful scenery. A great summer all-around.
