Purple Snot

I went to Holi: The Festival of Colors again this year in American Fork. There is something to be said for getting dirty... You start throwing the chalk after they symbolically burn a women (manekin) at the stake to somehow celebrate the coming of Spring.
Once everyone starts throwing the chalk, you can hardly breathe in the huge crowd. I think I had purple snot for over a week-I know your thinking gross but seriously who doesn't love snot that isn't green right?!

Mike and I. Ok seriously I couldn't get this stuff out of my clothes, nose, or hair.

Me and my bf Katie. See that pink on my scalp...ok it never came out. Its like once I tried to wash my hair, the pink decided to stick instead of wash out. I tried everything from washing my hair in baking soda amongst other things. Finally I was desperate so I called my friend Holly for an immediate hair session. Thankfully, I am now blonde again-but it was touch and go there for a while.
Pure Pandemonium and Pure Joy at Holi. We chanted Hara Krishna, Hara Krishna-oh the joy of celebrating other cultures. I love it.

The Weekend Warrior

As I’m winding up this work week I can’t help but think about the weekend that is fast approaching. We may all love our jobs-however there is something to be said for enjoying the weekend.

I am a weekend warrior. I’m a typical person who according to Wikipedia does recreational activities like skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and swimming solely on the weekends since I work Monday through Friday. So from now on expect weekend updates because I seriously believe that you should have at least one fun activity in your week or else you’re very boring and need to get a hobby.

So this weekend it’s skiing (uh in between conferences of course-guilty laugh hehehe). But really I am going to the morning session so don’t worry I’m legit. So in between doing my taxes (ya the deadline is fast approaching) watching conference, and skiing-I think I’ll have a very fulfilling weekend. Hopefully I won’t get any injuries but instead am wishing for a sweet goggle sunburn/tan-I love those. Although I don’t think it would look very good on cam but eh whatev that’s why some dude created makeup.

Oh and here is my plug for General Conference: Watch it! You’ll totally learn at least one thing (if not many) by the time it’s over.
