5K Weekend

What an amazing weekend that just occurred! Saturday morning, I ran and completed a 5K! It wasn't like a big event or anything, but my stake puts on a 5K every year to encourage health and fitness and there is always a great turn out. I was really worried about doing it because I've been sick with a chest cold for the last two weeks and therefore haven't done ANYTHING physical for that amount of time. But I completed it and I was not the last one to finish! I'm not going to put my time on here though because I am kind of embarrassed but its a starting point and there is always room for improvement. I'm sure that when I do it again and am not sick and have been more consistent with my exercising that my time will be way better.
Later that day, I met up with Stevie, whom I haven't seen since November!, and we spend a few hours together for lunch and shopping at the mall. Oh my heck, I love that girl!
Sunday was great too! The Salt Lake Valley has a huge YSA activity and they had a fireside at the Tabernacle Sunday night with guest speaker Brad Wilcox. It was such a great fireside! Afterwards, they had refreshments (yeah, for like 3,000 people!) over at the Brigham Young Historic Park. And that is where I saw a bajillion friends! Friends from high school, friends from CEU, friends from Logan! It was fabulous!!! I miss all my friends!!! But seriously, seeing
all those people this weekend seriously like made my whole summer. Oh you guys, I love you so much!!! :) I hope you all are doing well!!!

Spontaneous Date

So, there I was. In my living room on a random Friday night. Watching "America's Funniest Home Videos" with my family. When suddenly I receive at text from my friend Steve.
"Allie, what are you doing in exactly 45 mins?"
This text confused me because I'm in South Jordan and he's in Logan, 2 hours apart. So I reply.
"Um, probably just watching a movie slash nothing. Why?"
"Are there any good shake places near your place?"
"I'll pick you up at 9."
OMG!!! Freaking awesome! I love spontaneous get-togethers like this! I was way excited too, cuz I haven't seen Steve for a month and a half, since school ended. It was so great seeing him and enjoying his company.
This visit has made me so excited for school to start in August. I've realized how much I've missed Logan and my friends. So shout out to all those USU friends. I want you to know that you are missed by me! Hope ya'll are staying safe and having a fun summer!!! :)

Secrets of Adulthood

I came across these "secrets" recently and felt like they would be a great addition to my blog:
  • Outer order contributes to inner calm.
  • People don’t notice your mistakes and flaws as much as you think.
  • Most decisions don't require extensive research.
  • If you can't find something, clean up.
  • The days are long, but the years are short.
  • Turning the computer on and off a few times often fixes a glitch.
  • It's okay to ask for help.
  • Happiness doesn't always make you feel happy.
  • What you do EVERY DAY matters more than what you do ONCE IN A WHILE.
  • You don't have to be good at everything.
  • Soap and water removes most stains.
  • It's important to be nice to EVERYONE.
  • You know as much as most people.
  • Over-the-counter medicines are very effective.
  • Don't let perfect be the enemy of good.
  • What's fun for other people may not be fun for you--and vice versa.
  • If you're not failing, you're not trying hard enough.
  • No deposit, no return.

First Kiss

I dunno about everyone else, but I love hearing about people's first kiss stories. I think that they are just so fun and everyone (I'm quite sure) looks forward to their first kiss. I came across this video a few weeks ago on a friend's facebook wall and it seriously just makes me so happy every time I see it. This little boy is just hilarious when he gets his first kiss. He's so HAPPY! I love it!!! He makes some awesome faces too. Check this kid out!

Adorable, right?! Ahhh...
