Caution- not for weak stomachs

This blog is like a journal and I feel like I need to write about this experience, however, I am warning you now, the pictures may be a little graphic and it is pretty gross so if you get grossed out easy maybe don't read further...

While I was living in Hawaii I got a couple warts on my leg (which means I picked up some kind of virus), and they spread like a wild fire and before I knew it, I had a large patch on my right knee and one on my thigh as well as one just above my ankle. Two weeks ago I went to get them burned off and long story short, they were huge blisters at first and just didn't seem normal. After a few doctor visits I learned that I had chemical burns and also staff infection. Tuesday, I spent the morning in the burn unit at the U and its just kind of been a crazy thing! I'm so lucky that its not worse than it is because it could definitely be worse! Hopefully I can take care of it so that it won't scarr too bad but i'm thinking it'll for sure scarr somewhat. Anyway here are a few pictures of the mess...
Right after they were burned off
A few days later
A week later, at the worst

With age comes wisdom...

It seems like time is flying by and I feel like we're getting old and I'm not ready to be completely grown up! Is that dumb? We went to dinner the other night, to spend our last night for a long time all together (minus Sarah and Syb, you were missed very much). Cassidy, Kellie, and Sarah are getting married! Yay!!! Jaime graduated from Utah State and is moving on to bigger and better things in California, go Jaim!! Jilly went through the temple last week and is leaving on her mission in August. Syb could be having a baby at any time! haha kidding!! Chels is going to Paris in a few days. As for me and Katie, we're just working/going to school full time and playing lots of volleyball, haha nothing life changing but life is good! I love you all girlies and I'm so happy for the new adventures that are about to occur in your life!

Temple Celebration!

Tonight was the Youth Temple Celebration at the Conference Center, and it was AMAZING!!! It was so neat to see the prophet and feel the spirit so strong and see all the youth performing. So much time and effort went into it all and it was seriously so cool! My mom was over the choir for our stake and she did an awesome job. She was so dedicated and worked so hard and it all payed off tonight. The soloists were spectacular and all the dances and songs were so great! The spirit was overwhelming and I'm so happy I had the opportunity to go. I'm so grateful for the beautiful Draper Temple and we are so blessed to have it so close. I know that through temple's we can be with our families forever and I feel so blessed to have that knowledge and gift in our lives.

Night out with the girls

Cass and I went to the Taylor Swift concert on Tuesday night and it was so much fun! We got our tickets the day of and totally lucked out with the best seats! We sang and danced and went crazy pretty much the whole concert. We had a blast and Taylor was amazing! She is so talented! Not only does she have a great voice but she plays the piano and guitar and she is an awesome entertainer. We had a blast and I'm so glad we were able to go! Thanks Cass!!

About 8 months ago, she sent off Elder Gavin Rice who is serving in the Argentina, Buenos Aires, South mission!! Crazy...yes, weird...yes, cool...yes,!!! I am so happy for Jill and this next step in her life! I am sad she is leaving me, but so so proud of her and she will be the most amazing sister missionary! I love you Jilly!
