Rise and shout, the Cougars are out....

Yep, it's official...

I am going to be joining the zoobies on the hill this fall.

There is no turning back now...I have a place to live.

August 27th I will be moving into Heleman Halls.

It is crazy to think I will be moving out. I've never shared a room or a bathroom, being the abandonned youngest child that I am. But I am excited! I have been emailing my soon-to-be roomate and she seems way cool! She is from Elko, Nevada... CRAZY!!

Here I go...starting my future.

Dancing in the Moonlight!

Ok ok, so I am working on the catch up...
Next on the list...


So I went with Scott Frandsen. He's a cutie. He asked me using a build a bear. So Cute!!! It's a dog dressed in a tux. When you squeeze it's hand it says "Emmy, will you go to the Prom with me?." I love it. I answered him by putting together a 300 piece puzzle, turning it over and writing on it. Then I took it apart, had 300 plastic easter eggs and put one piece in each egg. I made an easter basket for him with candy and an easter bunny and put it in his room, scattering the other ton of eggs all over his floor! It was so funny!

Ok, so for Prom, they picked us up and took us to get massages. I know great right? I definitely loved that. Then we went and ate lunch and played games. After that they dropped us off. I had enough time to take a nap which I loved! Then I got ready, and as it tends to be, panicked a little with the time. Rondi was a life saver and helped me with my hair, makeup, dress, jewlery and all other things. I don't know what I would do without her! Thanks so much!

Then Scott came to pick me up. We took lots of pictures at my house then went down to Adam Law's house andtook more. After that we headed to Chef's Table for our lovely meal. When dinner was finished, we went down to the dance which was at the Provo Library. We took more pictures then waited in line for the Promenade.
In our group was Scott and I, Adam and Cami, Downing and Jessie, Andy and Ashly, Willie and Katelin, Morgan and Karissa, and Tanner and Heidi. I loved out group! We all were so fun!

Check out Scotts shoes...and the car...

After coming down the grand stairs into the crowd of people, we talked to our families and friends and took even more pictures. Then we headed back upstairs to the dance. The dance was so much fun! Our whole group did our thing out there on the floor. We loved it. Our theme this year was "Dancing in the Moonlight" so that was fun.

I even made Kyson (my Prom date last year) take a picture with me!

After the dance we changed then went back down to Adam's house and watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off in the gym on love sacs.Prom was so much fun and I loved it! I can't believe it is over! I will never go to another High School dance...I can't believe that. I have to admit I will miss them and all the drama. Graduation is just around the corner. I don't know how I got this all this fast, but its all right here!!

more later... love emmy.

yep, it has been THIS long since we have posted anything...give us a break...we're young and hot...haha.

ok so... first... we recently took a FANTASTIC trip to the lovely city of Cancun in Quintana Roo, Mexico! Actually, technically we were in Puerto Morelos, which is just south of Cancun, much more secluded and still gorgeous.

We spent the whole first day waiting in joke. Gotta love airports. One highlight of the day, when we were in line at security at the SLC Airport, we happened to see Coach Lon Kruger of the UNLV Basketball team. I iniated a conversation (apparently I get it from Merrill, suprised anyone?) Even though I don't love the Rebels, he was so nice and I have a lot of respect for him.

We loved the weather when we finally got out of the Cancun airport. We were so excited to get to our hotel, even if we had to drive through the ghetto to get there. We stayed at the Hotel Marina El Cid. It was an All-Inclusive resort, all our food, fun and virgin Pina Coladas were included right there. It was gorgeous. The view from our room definitely wasn't bad either.

We woke up every morning, walked a few yards to our spot under a Palapa on the beach and laid there all day. Of course alloting time for breakfast and lunch, various activites and time in the ocean. We all slept a lot, read a lot, and got a lot of sun. At the end of the day we would all shower, longer than we should, and get ready (ok only halfway get ready...who needs makeup?) . We would then go down to dinner wherever we had reservations for the night. After that, we would probably go to one of the very nice entertainment shows they had.

We did so much while we were there...

relaxed in the spa

loved the ocean
played with iguanas

went to the ruins in TULUM


visited playa del carmen (a nearby city)

went snorkeling...and almost died

met some nice latin boys...
don't worry, we didn't attend any of the clubs we were invited to or visit any of the houses we were also invited to...

Overall the trip was awesome. Minus the couple fights and illnesses, we did great.
Some other highlights of the trip include:

a bike ride into the local city
trying to watch the sunrise
diet cokes with lime on the beach
coconut ice cream to die for
jumping off the cliff in the pool
the slide in the pool
morning sretching on the beach
not playing volleyball
our mini rental car
giving tips to our waiters
when the snorkel trip ended
when daddy wasn't ill
being warm
bargaining so well with the locals
making sure our dog Cobi was safe at home
and much MUCH more!!

On the way home, we had a three hour layover in Dallas and were lucky enough to spend time with our sister Sonja, her husband, our three nieces and one nephew! We ate lunch in the Rainforest Cafe and celebrated our nephew Jenson's birthday! It was so fun to see them since we rarely get to! We love out Texas family!

Thanks to our parents for taking us on this lovely vacation!
We miss Mexico...

loves, em.
