1. Tessa FINALLY moved back home this week!! YAY!

2. ** I crossed off a very important item on my bucket list last week.... I STARTED A SLOW CLAP!!!!!!!!!! AND it was during the Harry Potter premier which makes it absolutely perfect! AND it happened during the the Twilight movie trailer when Jacob takes his shirt off. I slowly started clapping and the whole audience started clapping along which then led to some screams and cat calls. Dreams really do come true people..

3. Megan and Spencer get married in a month! Woop woop!

4. School also starts in a month which I'm actually very excited for/ scared for. This semester just might kill me... :/

5. I am currently looking to hire someone to make all of my big life decisions for me. I need someone who is level- headed and conservative, yet thinks out-of-the-box and is somewhat mischevious. I'm looking for someone to make decisions such as: where Allie should live this year, the specifics of Allie's career, who Allie should date, and where Allie should travel to next year. If you feel like you meet the qualifications, send in a resume.

6. Jessie J anyone? This fool has some MAD pipe's! So I'm off to London to steal her vocal chords. And to marry Nevel Longbottom.

Don't forget to wish Harry Potter a happy birthday on July 31 this next Sunday!

It's literally all I've thought about since Sunday. Bittersweet. It's done. Over. Don't worry, I'm seeing twice in a row. Back to back. Tomorrow at 8:30 (I know, be jealous that I'm seeing it early) then at midnight. Then I'll probably see it again this weekend.

My children will grow up in the magical world of Harry Potter and I will still try to read the whole series every 2 years.
Harry Potter, you will always live on......

Awkward #3

Awkward #3

Yesterday I was in charge of the float for the Institute in the Provo Parade. My friend Tyler and one of our institute teachers, Brother Sackett, were wearing almost identical outfits. I thought I saw Tyler bent down working on something on the float so I ran over to him and slid my hand all the way inside of his pocket as I said, "Can I leave these in your pocket my dear?" Then, Brother Sackett turned around. And I realized I had carressed his leg instead of Tylers......... AWK.WARRRD.

ps. I was just taking a bath and all of the sudden a SPIDER fell into the tub. I FLEW out of that tub so fast completely covered in bubbles still. EW EW EW.
