Welcome Flummer!!

Flummer: Crisp, fall-ish, jacket mandatory morning, followed by a HOT afternoon.  (Fall+Summer)  This is the season which is currently being experienced in the greater Provo area.  I wore a jacket to campus this morning for the first time since May.  Bittersweet.

last blog post

This is my very last blog post ever on swirlingcraziness.  Don't worry though, I made a new one! The new blog is:
It's all about london.  Be excited.

My last post is dedicated to my cousin who went into the MTC this week.  Here's to you Elder Trenton Stewart!

It takes a special someone...

To fall going up the stairs.  I made it through two years of college without falling on stairs, so hopefully, it won't happen again for two more...

It feels a lot worse than it looks.

Saturday is a special day!

Last Friday the very first H&M ever in Utah opened!!!  So of course we had to go up to Salt Lake and visit!!  Luckily, my cousins Amanda and Hallie were willing to come and help make it a party!!

Waiting in line to even get into the store!

After shopping for hours on end, we went to Asian Star.  If you have never been here, make it a priority to get there, like tomorrow, it is the best chinese food that has ever graced my taste buds.  AMAZING!
Chopsticks are not for me...

All in all, a very special saturday.  As the cherry on top, BYU won their football game!

New phone

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I got an IPhone!!  I'm still trying to figure out how to use it, but I love that when I see some pretty leaves on the ground, I can just whip out my phone and take a quick, fairly good looking picture!!  SO excited to start taking TONS of pictures!!!

Bridal Shower!!

Last Saturday was Bridal Shower day for AMANDA!!  Amanda is my amazing future sister in law, and it was so fun to shower her with gifts and see how excited she is for her wedding in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS!!!  I'm so excited for her to be in our family!!!

I'm totally going to be visiting Nick and Amanda all.the.time.

(Sorry it's a little blurry-still getting used to my new IPHONE!)

Sadly, I dropped the ball at the other shower and took zero pictures, but it was so fun.  It was recipe themed, so everyone gave Amanda a recipe and ingredients to make the dish!

A lot of good that did me...

So you know how I FINALLY found my camera cord?!  Well, a lot of good it did me because I didn't even take my nice newly charged camera with me today, and a lot of fun stuff happened:
1. I went to my friend's apartment and we did homework.
2. We made lunch.
3. We never went back to doing homework.  Instead we watched HILARIOUS youtube videos.
4. I went bowling.

Okay, so just looking at it like that it doesn't seem like there would be very many pictures, but that's why I NEED pictures, becuase there's tons that happened when I didn't have my camera with me:(.

Rule for Courtney: Take your camera with you EVERYWHERE and take pictures!!!

Oh where is my October?!

I can't believe it is already almost the end of October!!  I swear last week was the beginning of the month!  I don't have a costume for Halloween yet, but I don't know if I will need one since I don't really have any parties to go to... maybe I should throw my own party.

I have only 73 days until I go to London!  I am going to apply for a passport today.  I read the study abroad student manual yesterday.  It is a small book, but it is pretty boring.  I'm still trying to figure out exactly how long/where/if I am going to stay and travel after the program is over.  I am hoping to stay and go to either Rome or Greece.  Italy will most likely win-I just want to see Rome so much!!

On a side note, I finally found my camera cord!  It was in a box in the very top corner of my closet.  Pictures will come soon.

Who are you Harry Potter?!

Once upon a time I was just sitting on the couch minding my own business working on a paper for school when my dear sister came in to see what I was up to.  I explained that I was editing my paper and asked if she would like to help.  She then declined and left.  About 45 minutes later I took my paper into the other room to have my mommy read it over for one last edit.  While in there Alyson asked me to text someone for her, I then explained that I had left my phone in the other room.  She replied by informing me that my cell phone was right next to me on the floor.  I picked it up and attempted to send the text, but to my surprise 30-40 of my most used contacts' names had been replaced with the names of Harry Potter characters.  It has been weeks, and my phone is still not the same.  I still have no idea who some of the characters are, and I probably never will.  Thank You Alyson.

Also, in case you were wondering, she got the idea from pinterest.
