Far far New York

New York City came and went just like that. I got so much out of the trip and loved every minute of it...except for the flight home (the lack of sleep finally caught up to me).

I loved Time Square, there was so much to look at.

I had an awesome roommate, her name is Mandy and she was an art major from Canada. We spent every night staying up late talking and exchanging stories from our days adventures.

The New York Times was right outside our hotel. The poor guys, they were there all day and night.

At ground zero, it's the new Freedom Tower.

Can I get a ride? Please?

Empire State Building

ESPN in Bristol, Connecticut
Donald's got nothing on me!

The Girls!

The Business Majors! All seven of us got along so well and made lots of great memories together.

I had such a wonderful time, it was a dream come true. I am so grateful for a wonderful school that gave me this opportunity. I have gained a lot from this trip and although my life may never lead back to NYC I will forever remember this adventure and the insights I have gained from this trip. I love NYC!!!

Rexburg Weekend

We got up before the sun to drive down to Rexburg. It really was a great weekend. Gary, Sarah, and Landon were there. My Aunt came up to visit my cousin Carly and Brian. It was a little family reunion, and a fun one at that.

Don't ask why it's just what we do.

Since Halloween ended up being on a Sunday (which should never happen) we got a little creative on our church outfits.

Emily sure missed my mom, don't worry it's all with love.

They sure are pretty..that is my mom and her sister.

The Rexburg crew

Little Landon was so cute and smiled lots for us.


We finished off the weekend at Twizl Berry, which happened to be a Friday night treat for Emily and I during spring semester so we had to share the goodness secret with the family.

Free Time....

What is a girl to do when she has two days off.....

1. Rake a million leaves - CHECK
2. Taco Tuesday girls night - CHECK

3. Carve a pumpkin while listening to really loud Christmas music - CHECK

4. Make homemade freshly squeezed apple juice - CHECK

5. Practice my baking with a chicken casserole - CHECK

I should have days off more often, now I just need to get packed up for a weekend trip to Rexburg.

Hello New York City....

I was one of the few selected to go to New York in a couple of weeks for BYU-Idaho's Business Expedition. We get to meet with a bunch of different companies and network for future employment opportunities. I am so excited that I might just start packing today. Big city meet small town girl!

I Believe in Christ

I love this song. Cody used to always suggest this song be sung at college because he knew I can't sing it, hear it, or think about it without crying and he enjoyed that, but being the sweet guy that he is he learned to play it for me and sent me a video as proof. So enjoy because I sure did!

I sure do miss her...

It's official we have been apart for 2 months and I miss my roommate, sister, and friend like crazy. I am counting down the days till Halloween weekend when the Peterson girls will all reunite again for a weekend of fun in Rexburg.

I miss:
Her yelling at me for waking her up in the morning while looking for my ring.
Squeezing on her twin bed to watch Glee together.
Her crazy dancing when homework got to be too much.
Her sleep talking, yelling, and laughing.
Her night time prayers while sitting in the sink.
Her endless dinners of Pasta Roni.
Her pepperconi breath.
Twizleberry Friday Nights.
"Jaime you know how many milks that can buy" Me: "But I don't even drink milk"

We have so many good, funny, and crazy memories. I love going to college with my little sister and it will be fun to have all three Peterson girls there spring semester.

Our moto: There is nothing that dancing can't make better.

Catching Up

It's been a while since my last post, soooooo here is the latest news:

We celebrated Sena's 21st birthday
which came along with her mission call to San Fernando, CA. She will be speaking Spanish and reports to the MTC January 5th. I am sure gonna miss her as a roommate, but I know she is gonna make an amazing missionary.

Sena and I also got to hang out with our FHE brother and friend, Kyle Olsen, before he left on his mission to New Mexico. It was fun to all get together and go to the Spokane Fair together.

It's official I have made it to my ONE gallon donation! My dad and I raced to see who could fill the bag the fastest....he of course won. (He has veins like pipes while mine...well...we will just say I will never bleed to death)

Landon = cutest nephew ever!!! He is getting so big and cute, I just love him and love talking to him on skype. I can't wait to see him during Thanksgiving, now that is something to be thankful for.
