s t o k e d {Week 1}

Can we talk for a second about how this is my FIFTH semester at BYU-Idaho?! I can't even believe it's been that long... I also can't believe it's only been that long. Haha! Weird. Either way, I am - s t o k e d - to be back...even though I'm stuck in the frozen tundra of Idaho. I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Some things that happened this week:

  • I exercised every day! Kelton and I are - k i l l i n g - our goals. 
  • I helped get Brooklynn and her truck out of a very snowy construction zone. Haha! Can we talk for a second about how I LOVE having Brooklynn up here? We haven't lived in the same state since I was 16 and she was 15. Look at us now! ;)
  • Filled up my gas tank for EIGHTEEN dollars. (Thanks, America!)
  • Bought forty chicken nuggets for SIX dollars. (Thanks, BK!)
  • Got called be the Relief Society 1st Counselor in my ward! I'm nervous and excited!
  • Spent some time with my good friend Alyssa! She is a sweetheart and I love her so much. It's going to be so fun to spend time with her this semester!
  • Made fudge and ate way too much of it.
  • Hung out with Bekah a few times! It's great to have her up here too! I feel blessed to be surrounded by so many people I care about! :)
  • Bought more Rockin' Robins from Soda Vine than I probably should have.
  • Rejoiced because I don't have classes on Fridays!!! Freak. Yes.
  • Went to the temple. Always a great way to spend my time!

This semester I'm only taking 13 credits and I'm so happy! Haha 18 was too much and I will never do that again for as long as I shall live. I'm taking...

Foundations Capstone
New Testament
Media Law and Ethics
Professional  Presentations
Digital Imaging

I think this will be a great semester! Scratch that... I KNOW this will be a great semester! I'm still going to have a lot of work since I'm getting into my higher level classes, but I am so excited about them! ...but really, I'm mostly excited to spend time with all of my friends and especially with the man of my dreams {so cheesy, but so true}. I'm just grateful for every second I get with him! 

Here are some pictures for you to scroll through... :)

Loved getting all of these snapchats from my brothers:

My favorite YouTuber snapchatted me and I died!! Haha that sounds so lame... but I was fan-girling hardcore... and she probably thinks I am such a creep because I screenshot her snapchat...

Loved seeing this text!

Also LOVED seeing these pictures of Drew as he went through the temple yesterday. What an amazing thing! It's incredible to see my brother so happy. I. just. love. it. 

So proud.

Got this beautiful baby in the mail. Cannot wait to start using it! If you guys want to check out my blog for my Digital Imaging class, here is the link: Lauren Burns Photo Design

If you're reading this, I love you. I really do. Thanks for caring about my life. It means a lot to me! Have an awesome week! :)


P.S. Stay tuned for a post about my Christmas break! Hopefully I'll do that this week. :)
