Pumpkin Carving

This past weekend a bunch of us carved some pumpkins! Me, Rachel, Rachel, Katie, and Jordan...we're awesome.

I decided to make a pirate pumpkin.

It was a very spooky night.

Everyone is Getting Married

This is our last dinner together as an apartment before Karlee left us for marriage. I am very excited for her, but I will miss her dearly. We all went to her reception and it was a party. There was dancing and doughnuts and fruit and ice cream and fudge and laughter and good times and crying and long embraces.

Here we all are holding Dave...I can barely be seen.

With the lovely bombshell bride. Goodbye my room roommate.

One last shot of our completed apartment. Why is everyone in the world getting married? It's gotta stop.

The Rodeo

Here are some pictures from the rodeo that I was in. I rode the bull for about 2.4 seconds. Right out of the shoot I somehow lost the rope I was holding onto, so I just rode without hands. It was crazy but so much fun! I can't wait to do it again next semester! Thanks to everyone who came and was so supportive. Also I will post the video as soon as I get that.

Me and Rachel.

Look no hands. I was so frazzled because I was first to ride in my section and I didn't have a helmet. So I finally had to go to one of the other girls and ask for her helmet. So I was not in the mind frame that I wanted to be in when I was finally on the steer. But it was so much fun! I love rodeos and riding a bull is very very fun!

Me and my roommate Katie. She is responsible for these amazing pictures.

Hilarious Tuesdays

Sorry about the delay in rodeo pictures and videos...I'm working on it.

Today I got out of my foundation capstone class a little early, so I took my sweet time walking to my next class. I got there and no one was there. When I looked at the clock I realized I was 15 minutes early (or so I thought). So I sat down and checked my e-mail and rested my little eyes. Later, I was wondering why no one was coming and why class was not starting. Suddenly! I realized that I went to the wrong class. hahahahahahaha I had a good laugh. So I booked it over to my real class and was about 15 minutes late. It was a good "just laugh about it" moment. And so I did, I laughed very hard. It's funny. Oh Tuesdays. I was on campus from 10am-7pm today...normal things. Also exhausting. But life is good.

Fact: I will ride a bull on friday

Yes. The rumor's are true. I will be riding a bull (but really just a steer) this Friday at 7:30pm in a rodeo for spirit week. Everyone should come because it's going to be awesome! If I stay on for 8 seconds then I win a belt buckle! Fantastic! This has been on my list of things to do for a while and now I will be able to check it off! In addition, sometimes I get very scared when I think about it but other times I am just very excited. The end

Need proof?
Here you go:

You are officially on the roster to ride a steer at the Spirit Week Rodeo on Friday, October 9th. This is going to be a kickin’ rodeo because of your participation.

Also, you must plan on arriving at the Madison County Fairgrounds on Friday, October 9th at 6:30 pm so that the Rodeo manager can run through some safety tid bits with all of you before you suit up to ride.
