people say we are annoying together. i say we bring out the best in each other.

whit leaves for her mission to norway in 4 days. so i decided to make a post about  my love for all we have done together and why i love her. and why i will miss her. 
 because we took ugly pictures before we were even friends.
 because she makes fun of my modesty tan lines.
 because she lets me put my finger in her mouth 
to increase our disneyland firework experience
because we studied AP american on the bio trip.
and because our pic is still up on crazy Jones's wall
 because she is a pretty medieval princess
because we are hard core
 because we are SO good at looking like men.
 because we are only kind of good at looking like women
 because she has had to climb all kinds of mountains
because she makes a great sunburned contortionist
because she loves harry potter as much as i do.
because we have awesome ideas like going to a foam soap car wash
because our mother's blossoming friendship is crazy like ours
because she pulls her own weight in our timp band
because we took an hour to climb a mountain 
to snowboard down for 30 seconds
because she is a good addition to our family and totem poles
and  because we'll always be best friends.
because we really do bring out the best in each other.

utah at a glance.

St George
 first mountain biking of the year. second of my life. i might have been scared for my life. 
but i can successfully blame it on my too-big-for-me-man-bike.
 we got to the unknown finish line right when the first place runner was coming in. 
however this is the second place guy.
cool old books. not cool enough to pay 12 bucks for them.
blur master. and far away. dang stranger.
tribute to juneau.
i'd have to say i was a little disappointed with the lack of scariness that was expected. 
but i was impressed with the view.

Bear Lake

We didn't take any pictures on that trip but it was just as fun as the others. We went biking every day, some on the road but most on the snow (which isn't the easiest on a bike), and some on the trail. And of course we had to go to La Beau's because that was the main reason jake wanted to drive all the way to bear lake.
also i don't know how do change the HTML to center this. deal with it.

very sick of Delicate Arch pics
i was exceptionally happy on rachel's bday
i know i'm creepy in this pic. but the background is very not creepy. 
so don't mind me.
we felt like as we drove closer to these we might get slowly
and nightmarishly chopped up into pieces.

It is finally here. and I have three regrets.
1. Jake and I aren't there
2. We have to miss the U.S. vs England game.
3. I bought myself a Portugal jersey instead of a World Cup shirt when we were in Germany.

and yes i know my mouth is big. i was excited.
