The Cabin

So as is tradition around Thanksgiving time, the whole greenwood crew heads up to the cabin for a few days full of crazy greenwood fun. This year there were still only 3 of the greenwood families but that didn't make it any less eventful, although it certainly made the noise level more bearable haha :D Probably the most memorable thing that happened this cabin trip is when the boys had the grand idea to become fat pillow people! it was hilarious! but maybe thats because it was late.. and at the cabin... but thats besides the point. Here are a few of my favorite pics from the occasion for you all to hopefully enjoy.

Austin and Nate. haha they got nice little head rests there to take naps on.

me and lauren! we're on the biggest losers! we've lost 50 lbs and we're proud of it! ;)

haha me and nate. the fat sis and brother

austin, lauren, me, and nate.
or maybe a more appropriate name for me would be helga the great... just a thought

the new charlies angels!
haha austin is the best! i love his fat rolls! lol his worked the best cause he had a body pillow instead of just a regular pillow lol. you should've seen his sit ups! i was in hysterics, tears in my eyes, i was laughing so hard!

And that is us. as fat pillow people. Kudos to nate and austin for providing us with atleast a good half hour of pure delight, laughter, and entertainment :D

This year's greenwood Thanksgiving was kinda small since everyone decided to travel! but 3 of the 9 greenwood families all got together at Ron & Jill's house (uncle and aunt) for this years Thanksgiving dinner! It was DELICIOUS! as always, but I am sad to admit that not only has my brother Nate outgrown me this year, but he also out ate me this year! But I proudly admit that I still ate the most out of all the girls there! ;) Here are a few pics from the occasion

it was only me and lauren this year! love ya cuz!

my "i think my pant button is about to explode!" pic :D

looks like nelson and andrew are feelin the after effects of the turkey! or way full... or both

my daddy puttin on his cheesy grin!
haha my camera has this awesome setting where it automatically takes a pic when the subject smiles. the next few pics are from that game :P its oh so entertaining.

haha aunt jill and my mom! aunt jill trying to hide from the camera by covering her smile!

lauren! my gorgeous cuz

my uncle keith! I guess the cheesy smile runs in the greenwood side! (notice how alike he and my dad look. all the greenwood brothers are often mistaken for one another from behind)

even though Nate has outgrown me he still cant escape my hugs! But he sure tries... believe me!

my baby sis shay is always up for a snuggle though! :)

Well that is all, and I guess now it is time to list a few of the things i am grateful for!

1. my amazing family! I love them so much! They are the best and i wouldn't trade them for anything. Each and every one of them is so special to me! I am glad that we can strive to live with each other forever! which brings me to number dos!
2. the gospel! I dont know what I would do without it. I am grateful for my testimony, for a loving heavenly father, for the atonement! For parents who raised me right, for the holy ghost, for the plan of salvation, and for hope in the future!
3. all my amazing friends, you know who you are! Thanks for always being there for me! I think friends can often make or break a person and mine have always been the greatest! Thanks for helping me become the person I am today!
4. my amazing roommates! I know i can always count on you! You've been there through thick and thin. the tears, stress, laughter! I love you guys dearly! You are my home away from home.
5. life and health. I feel so blessed! I look at what some people go through and feel truly grateful for all the things i've been given. I am lucky to have grown up in this country in such an awesome family. to always have more then enough to eat, to be able to go to school (even though i complain plenty about it), to be able to run, walk, hear, see! everything!

Thank you everyone for everything you all do for me! I have the greatest family and friends a girl could ask for! I hope you all had a fabulous thanksgiving and that you're waist lines grew as much as mine did! :D

Mini Me!

Tonight I went to Studio One's benefit Concert to see my baby sis shay! I had to pay someone 20 dollars to take my shift at wingers, but it was so worth it! My shay shay was adorable :) She really is a mini me and thats something im proud of :D she is adorable, but definitely is her own person. She has a lot more sass and personality in her dancing then i probably ever did :D she is definitely a little performer! I always was more the person who focused on perfect technique then on performing. But man, after going I miss dancing even more than i already did before! The concert was AMAZING! as always haha, and it was a benefit concert for Stephanie and Christian, and their family. Stephanie and Christian were in a plane accident a few months ago and are both still getting surgeries, and skin grafts (mostly stephanie who had 3rd degree burns over 85% of her body) so its always touching to be able to try and help someone who is in need of help, by doing something that we love to do. dance. But after crying multiple times during the concert (which has become routine the last few concerts since i quit dancing) and realizing I still want to dance so bad! it brings up the big question... do i try and get back into dancing or do i just give it up? Dancing just means so much to me its been so hard to give up... ugh. Anyways, i guess we'll see if i get accepted into study abroad or not.. if not maybe i'll try and whip myself back into shape for cougarette auditions... again. Well. we'll see. haha my life is full of so many question marks these days! lol. But anyways here are a few pics of me and shay over the last couple years at our concerts together :)

me and shay during intermission tonight :)

me and shay during intermission last year: look how much she has grown in a year!

me and shay after my very last concert in 2007

me and shay in 2006 :)

me and shay in 2005 :)

Well thats all for tonight. I miss dance. story of my life! Any advice anyone? Hm... we will see what happens i guess!

all blogged out

I haven't updated my blog in ages! The weird thing is, i just haven't really felt like it. I never thought the day would come when i'd be sick of blogging... but I am sick of blogging lol. But here is a quick update on my life for those of you who care :)

I registered for next semester and now officially have declared my major. I will be majoring in exercise science fitness and wellness emphasis if everything goes according to plans :D lol we'll see how well i like it and whether or not i stick to it! Next semester as of right now I am taking PdBio 220(human anatomy), ExSc 387(a nutrition class), D&C, Stat 221, and dun dun dun.... PUBLIC SPEAKING! aaaaaaaaaaah! that one I am most definitely not excited for! Those of you who know me know i'd rather die then give a talk in church! lol I dont know why I hate standing in front of people and talking so bad, but I do! I feel like people judge you or something, which i shouldn't care even if they do, but I care! So the fact that this class is required for my major almost made me want to not major in it (im dead serious haha. thats how much i hate public speaking) But now after much thought, i have decided that it'll probably be good for me and that maybe i can get over some of my fears and reservations about public speaking by taking this class... only time will tell! but atleast my roommate chels has to take it too as a prereq for dental hygiene school so i'll have a friend! I am also going to try and add a Latin ballroom class so fingers crossed they let me add :) I am also in the process of applying for a study abroad next fall so we will see whether or not i get accepted!

Thats all i really feel like saying at the moment, but here are a few pics from the time of my blogging leave of absence :)
