So I went to Homecoming last weekend. Yeah don't worry I didn't know that college students went to Homecoming either, but I was asked, and so I said yes. Despite the fact that I was dancing in high heels for two hours, so I am pretty sure my feet are broken in 10 places, it was a fun night.
I saw the movie "Up." It was funny and cute. It was WHO I saw the movie with that I enjoyed the most though. Hehe.
Oh yes, rugby in New Mexico was really fun. Here are some pictures! Bye.

Yikes! Freak I don't even need a Halloween costume anymore. But yeah. Don't buy this terrible product because you will break out faster than a prisoner in an all glass prison. (Whaaat? I totally just made that one up...)

I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR. General Conference, Halloween, my birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas....especially the Christmas season. There is something about the air around Halloween (Seth you know what I am talking about) and the memories of watching the Halloween episode of Wishbone with Seth when we were little. Ok who am I kidding, we watched that show up until last year. Haha, jk. Oh and also the memories of watching the Halloween episode of Home Improvement, and of course, probably the best memory of all...watching the Halloween episode of Boy Meets World with Charlie and Heather. Oooh I love it. And my birthday and Thanksgiving (which happens to be Mom's birthday this year) and then the whole month of December because CHRISTMAS is the best (and for Ann, her birthday on Dec. 1st makes that whole month even better)...I just love this time of year.
This is my flag-football team. We are terrible, which shouldn't be surprising, cause I mean come on...our colors are HOT PINK and black. Anyway...even though we will probably lose every game...it is still fun. :)
Shout out to Brian: CONGRATS on completing the St. George marathon!
And Kat: Good luck on your upcoming marathon!

-There are exceptions for everything.
-President Taft was a large man. So large in fact that he once got stuck in his bathtub, so the bathtub got a chainsaw taken to it!
-If you pick out the cookie dough from cookie dough ice cream and try and bake it, the little "cookies" will not really turn out because the cookie dough does not have a levening agent in it.
-Statistics show that people who co-habitate and then get married are generally more likely to have affairs. Ironic eh?
-Grandma's father was 20 years older than Grandma's mother. GULP.
Ok so I haven't learned that much. But interesting stuff right?

This is at the family reunion.
This is at my ward's formal "end of the semester" dance. I got to sport my red prom dress from my senior year of high school again. It was pretty fun. That is my friend Herb.
This is Seth being buff on his birthday. Happy 19th.
I love my mom. Notice something in this picture? Look just above my mom's shoulder. Thanks Kat. Hahaha
Hey Ann...speaking of white trash...check this out. I look like a wife beateE. I was playing football a couple of days ago...and yeah you get the picture. So yeah, this doesn't help those days that I walk around in some grey shorts and a baggy shirt with a messy braid in my hair, already looking white trash. But who am I kidding? I like bruises and scars and battle wounds. I feel tough.
This is me. Laura did a photo shoot of me for her portfolio for salons. She did the awesome hair and makeup and some of her friends (Carolee and Elise) took the pictures. The theme of this picture/photo shoot was "ice." Here is some more of their work...
The theme for this one was "fire."
This was just a "beauty" photo shoot.
This was the AMAZING hairdo Laura did.
And this is when I went camping in the Uintahs about a month ago. Look how pretty it is!

This was a date I went on. Went to Macaroni Grill then canoeing (doh! Don't know how to spell that word) down the part of Provo river that meets up with Utah lake. It was pitch black and at one point we saw some huge thing moving upstream...I am not lying, it looked like a fetching aligator. It creeped us out because I am pretty sure there are only fish and frogs and stuff in the Provo River. Unless we floated all the way to Florida? Anyway, it was scary. The date was really fun though.
This is what I rewarded myself with when I ran 11 miles last Saturday. Yesterday I ran 12 miles and was having some serious second thoughts about running a marathon. Because everytime I run I get blisters on my toes and overall my feet are killing me the whole time. I know I know, it is probably my shoes.
This is at Jill Fitzgibbons', (now Mohlman) wedding reception. I have known Jill for a while because she is from Vegas, and we were roommates for about a month. I am with my friend Cam in the picture. He was roommates with Jill's husband Jeff before they got married. Cam is awesome.
These are my roommates for Spring. Well and then Kathryn Driggs. (She is in purple). Now it is just me and the three girls to the left of me. And I get to enjoy the luxury of my own room. :)

For some reason I keep hearing in my head the line from Princess Bride..."friendless, brainless, helpless, hopeless! Do you want me to send you back to where you were, unemployed, in Greenland?!" Yikes, I am sounding a little like Fezzik right now. Minus the Greenland part.
Anyway, my life may seem bad, but you better believe everything is going to be ok. And this is why. Not having a home means that I could just bum off of someone new everyday, and when Sunday rolls around, I can go to a different ward every time and keep meeting new people! And they would never know that I have the potential to be sitting on the side of the road with the other Provo bums, dirty and smelly with nothing to my name and a sign in my hand that reads "heaven help me." Plus, this way of living is free, baby. And jobless aint bad. Who likes to work anyway? And who needs friends when I got Laura and John? And I basically already explained the benefits of not having a ward. Moneyless? Once again, all I need money for is food, and like I said, all I have to do is bum off people and I am sure they will feed me.
Alright. This is really what is going to happen. Yes, I am homeless right now but I am going to find a place to live real soon. I have plenty of options, I just want to make sure I am in a good ward. However, I still think it wouldn't be to hard to survive homeless. I do have a car, and already discovered where I would sleep if I was out of luck trying to find someone to stay with. Today I drove to a park and went and layed in the grass in the shade (because I didn't have anywhere to go home to) and it was nice. A perfect place to sleep! I have been looking for jobs too, and I am sure I can find somewhere to work. I have to pay for rent and food and school in the fall and stuff! No biggie. I have never had many friends anyway so I am used to that. As far as a ward goes, well once I find somewhere to live I will have a ward. And once I find a job I will no longer be moneyless, and can therefore pay for everything I need to pay for. That is how my life really is. It may not seem too glamorous, but I have a lot to be grateful for.
Just a side note: I love my family more than anything else.

So I don't really have anything special to say. Except my mom, dad, and Seth came up recently so we took these pictures while they were here in Provo. The first one was taken in Dan's apartment though.
Tomorrow mom is coming up again! My brother-in-law John is performing 6 songs in a concert at a place called Muse here in Provo. Laura is performing two of the songs with him. It is going to be sweet. So my mom and I are going to that.
So I was recently thinking about nick names. I think one time my mom and some of my siblings were discussing this topic, and some were saying that people have to earn the right to be able to call someone a certain name. That is true in some cases. However, for me, it isn't true in other cases. For example: my sister Ann and ONLY Ann (for as long as I can remember) has called me Pootsie Poo Poo, or Poodley Poo, or Pootsie Pew Pew Pew Pew Pew...or just plain Poop. If anyone besides Ann tried to call me that...that would just be weird and I would tell them that they weren't allowed to call me that. BUT...I love it when people call me Audge. To me it shows that they feel comfortable enough around me to call me that. I just like the name too. Want to hear what one of my biggest pet peeves in the entire world is? When people call me auBrey. THAT IS NOT MY NAME. To me it is offensive when people call me Aubrey because it kind of shows that they really did not make that much of an effort to really become familiar with who I am. I don't know. Now if I meet someone for the first time and a little while later they ask if my name is Aubrey or Audrey....that is alright. But if it is someone I know well and they call me Aubrey...What the crap!? Too bad a lot of the times I am too non-confrontational to even say anything, even though inside I am bothered. Anyway...I also realized that my family has a lot of nick names. Here are some of them:
Seth: Befford (me and Laura, and now my mom), Puppy Love (me and Laura), Pompie, Rompus,etc. (Ann), Buddy boy (mom), Cub (Dad), Ronkle (Charley), Sethy (most of us)
Me: Pootsie Poo Poo, Poop, etc. (Ann), Auzray or Auzee Double Auzoo Zoo (Laura), Audge(almost everyone), Auzshee Auzshah (dad), Podge (Sarah) Super model (wait what?)
Laura: Yorligus (me), Ann used to call Laura Toots, Laura Jane (a few people, including my mom and dad, but then again, Jane is her middle name), La (Sarah)
Mom: Yamigus (me)
Dad: Pops (me, Laura)
Interesting. Who knows where most of those came from. And you better believe that at my track meets in high school or Seth's volleyball games Ann was there yelling at the top of her lungs, "Go Pootsie Poo Poo!" or "Good job Rompie!" I secretly liked it. Who knows about Seth.

But did I take any pictures? Of course not. Why? Because I am the crappiest picture taker ever. I just never remember to take pictures. So sorry...I don't have any pictures to show. I will work on that.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: It was Charley's request that I tell you that I asked the same trivia question at the dinner table on Sunday (the Fugitive one) and he immediately responded with, "Cake. Charles Nichols." Soooo....he is the champ. Sorry Sarah.
So I was telling mom that last Tuesday Elder Holland came to BYU and gave a devotional. It was one of the best talks I have ever heard given by any of the general authorities. It was on forgetting the past and looking to the future and it is titled, "Remember Lot's wife." I encourage anyone to go and look it up somewhere online and watch it. I am sure it would be nice to read, but it will have a much greater impact if you watch it. But yeah, it was really good. I have already had to apply it to my life a couple times.
Alright well that is all I have for now. Peace.
