Today i got to see Allison for the first time in five months. It was an awesome surprise, i knew she'd probably come home on weekends soon but i wasn't expecting it and when i saw her i instantly felt this happiness unlike anything iv'e felt in a very long time. Just hugging her was the best thing ever. i was so happy i was just about speachless. We got to visit awhile and it seems like she's doing well. I always wonder how she's doing, i have been thinking about her this weekend and it was amazing to go to church and see her. When this whole thing happened i didn't know what to think and i was worrying about her almost constantly, i'd think things like what if she changes dramatically? or, i wonder if she misses me, because i missed her so much. As time went on i was still thinking about her a lot and if i wasn't careful i'd think too much and end up crying. I just kept telling myself she's where she needs to be but that was so hard to accept. Months passed and a few weeks ago i talked to my friend and she said she went to visit Allison, which i had been meaning to do. She told me she was doing well, that is when i found out she'd be able to come home on weekends soon. After i heard that i thought about her almost constantly again for weeks. This weekend iv'e been thinking about her, and then it was amazing to see her. She is still crazy and just the Allison i know no more worrying. i know she's doing well and that's all i want. One of these weekends that she's home she's coming over, we've already decided that. This just gives me something to look forward to and be happy.

4 years ago one of my best friends ever, moved to Mississippi and i was heart broken. We stayed in touch, but got in a few fights, went through some rough times. The move definitely hurt our friendship but through it all we are still great friends. Well now she's going to Byu. She came and visited me today. It was really good to see her and get to talk for awhile! We were laughing about some of the stuff we did 4 years ago, what were we thinking?? We admitted we'd probably still do some of that stuff....or at least i would and i'm sure Aya would too. i'm looking forward to having her close again. We have already planned to go boating soon!

I really haven't blogged in awhile. I just forgot about it. Anyways this summer has had it's ups and downs. i went to Virginia in June, and we are going again in a few weeks. it'll be good to see Ellie again. i haven't really done anything else, we've been boating a few times and we're going again for my birthday it should be fun. This weekend has been rough, i found out one of my best friends is on 24hr suicide watch. Today i was told she'll be there for 10 months to a year. i'm really sad she is really the only friend i hang out with and i never realized she was in so much pain. i will really miss her but i'm glad shes getting the help she needs, it'll be a rough time for me. i already really miss her and it's hard to grasp the thought that someone just down the street from me is now so far away.
i will miss you Allison.
i will miss you Allison.

Everyone knows i haven't blogged for a looong time. Well it's been busy and exhausting and it's finally spring break. I went to St George about a month ago, with Norah and Erin. Colman was Still in Europe and we decided to all cram in the car and go visit Grandma. st George is one of my favorite places ever. i'm sure after my grandparents are gone it won't be the same, but for now it is my favorite place to be. The weekend after that Colman was still gone, My dad had to work in bluff so we got in the car on thurday and drove down to bluff. That was exciting.....ok not really i spent the day in the hotel on the internet. Great day if you ask me The next weekend i got to miss school again and go to the Saltflats, it was kinda cold but once i got riding i had so much fun. Iv'e been sick this weekend, but on Friday, Erin, Nic and Norah came for a little easter egg hunt and to paint eggs. Norah had sooo much fun she is adorable!

I haven't blogged in a long long time, so here is an update. We had our annual apple party two weeks before thanksgiving. Then we spent Thanksgiving in North Carolina. Two weeks in North Carolina, It was great! It was a lot warmer then we expected it to be this time of year. We flew into Norfolk Virginia and spent a day in Virginia before we picked up Erin and Nic. We went to Chincoteague island, to see the ponies of Chincoteague. That night we picked up Erin, Nic and and spent another night in Virginia. We woke up early the next morning, well.... it seemed early to me because i was up all night. Then we got in the car for a long day, drove to Buxton where we met Josh and Jess. We had a really good dinner that night. When we got back to the hotel we just talked and caught up, it's been awhile since we've all been together. Well, the next day we woke up even earlier...squished in the car and drove to North Carolina. Erin and Nic had it pretty good, But Colman and I had to sit in the back seat with Norah. It wasn't the most comfortable ride, two teenagers and a car seat....if you can imagine. We only stopped a few times that day, so when we finally got to the ferry all three of us in the back seat were dying to get out. It's about a 30 minute ferry ride from Hatteras to The Outer Banks. Then another 30 minutes from the ferry to the house we were staying at. FINALLY we were there! If you've ever rented a house on vacation you know how exciting it is to go inside and look around for an hour getting used to the place. If you haven't ever rented a house, a hotel is just about the same, the only difference is the time you spend exploring the place, because it's only one room.
Josh's best friend Danny and his family also came and spend the week with us. We got there on Sunday, and that night we had Thai food and spent the rest of the night relaxing. On Monday we went to the beach, The water was kind of cold, but every time i go to the beach i HAVE to walk in the water. Collecting shells and walking in the water, possibly the best thing ever. It was also Ellie's first time to the beach so Josh was really excited. Norah was being stubborn and didn't decide to have fun until we were about to leave. We got home and everyone said "Alexi you can't shower until everyone else has showered" because they all know better then to let me shower first.
On Wednesday we got a Turduken It was pretty dang delicious. Later in the week we found a place where we got fresh shrimp and clams. I think that is when me and jess got along the most, when we were eating shrimp. We are definitely best of friends when there's a plate of shrimp and a bowl of melted butter in front of us. well, Thursday was thanksgiving. Turduken one day, turkey the next pretty great right? Pumpkin pie with ice cream, best thing ever! We bought our pies so we didn't have to make them that was kind of sad. oh well.
Well the next night we had more shrimp and clams. It was delicious, once again Jess and i were the best of friends.....that is until she slapped me, that's right she slapped me. She saw a mosquito on my face and slapped it. I guess she can't be fast and gentle because she slapped me SO HARD! My ear was bright red. She felt really bad, although it was funny. To this day I bet she still feels bad.
After that the rest of the trip went by so fast. We went to the beach one more time, the next day we piled in the car and started driving back to Virginia. We stayed in a really nice hotel right on the beach for two more nights. Even though Josh and Jess only got to stay one night. Well, saying goodbye wasn’t easy and it never will be. We said goodbye and Josh and Jess were on their way home. That night seemed long. It ended and we all went to bed and woke up the next morning and packed up into the car and drove to the airport
