A Night in Berkeley

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

The Saturday after Thanksgiving there was a BYU alumni night at UC Berkeley. There was a little barbecue and such before the game and then we walked up to the stadium. It was such a great game! It was a blast being so close up and seeing all the action. Our friend from our last ward's little brother is the BYU quarterback so we cheered extra hard for him and lucked out and got to see lots of touchdowns in our corner of the stadium. It's not a BYU/LDS activity if you don't run into someone you know and of course we did! We were standing cheering and I heard my name and right behind us were some of my friends from my old singles ward. 

Afterwards we explored Berkeley which we had been wanting to do for months but never had the chance to. It is such a fun town! I joked with Tim that we should be looking out for the cast of Parenthood. If only it wasn't Hollywood. 


Thanksgiving

Ahh I am so behind on posting but there have been so much fun things happening the past few weeks that I don't want to forget.

Thanksgiving was such a great time. This was our first Thanksgiving not being with family so we knew it would be a little different. Luckily we are blessed with incredible friends and had the best time celebrating together. I loved watching everyone (including myself) calling up their moms and watching YouTube videos trying to make all the recipes just right.

These people plus many more are the reason we decided to stay in Redwood City even if it is a ridiculous commute for Tim into San Francisco every day. They are truly the best!


Hunting

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Hello! It's me! I'm still alive.  I'm not going to go on and on about how I'm sooo busy and about how sorry I am for not blogging. I think that is kind of silly. I did want to pop in and say hi. I am SO close to graduating guys! I can hardly believe it. Just a few more days. I still need to think of something celebratory to do since I won't be going back to campus to walk.

In other news I am having the hardest time getting into the holiday spirit. Something with it being beautiful and warm and rainy and flowers budding in beautiful California in mid December. Also we didn't put up a tree and don't have any decorations. We're leaving to Utah and I'm kind of just counting on absorbing all the festive Christmas then. For now a little Christmas music and focusing on the Savior a little more than usual does it for me.

Job hunting. I am on the hunt. Literally. I got a great job offer but I just knew it wasn't right and I ended up declining. I know there is something out there that will push me, help me grow, and help me to do something meaningful. At least I hope so. Wish me luck!!
