Concert Time!

On Tuesday I drove up to Orem to hang out with my best friend Miriam for the day and go to a concert put on by Utah Valley University Student Association. We went shopping and I bought a pair of red Converses that I have fallen in love with and would like to get a couple more pairs in different colors.

After we went shopping we got ready for our Auburn, IYAZ, B.o.B. , and Jason Derulo, which was AWESOME!! We had so much fun and lost our voices from singing and screaming all night.

It's not the best but it's the only picture I have of the both of us that night because after that my camera died because I'm so smart and forgot to charge my battery before we came. After the concert we just went back to Miriam's dorm hung out with her roommates until about 1 and then crashed like there was no tomorrow. Too bad we had to get up early because Miriam had a math class at 9 and I had to hang out in the library for two hours while she took two tests. Don't get me wrong, the library is beautiful and huge, but it's not the best place to be when you're still half asleep. After her class we went to lunch at Winger's since it's tradition. Then I had to get on the road and drive to Cash's house for dinner, which was pretty good by the way Libby.

St. George Marathon

So this is a bit overdue but I just wanted to share with you guys the adventure of watching my Grandpa Erickson run the St. George Marathon. Yes that's right, my GRANDPA ran the marathon, plus this year was his 18th year running. He has actually inspired me to start training so that I could run with him next year before he retires. Guess that means I'll have to start running and training. Oh and the joy of dieting too. Goodbye tasty sugar and sweets that I love. Anyways here are a couple of pictures of the marathon.

There he is at the very end of his run. He did it in a really good time too 4 hours and 33 minutes WITH a hurt knee and not the proper training he needed because of his knee. I'm really proud to say he's my grandfather. I love you grandpa. (Even though you probably wont read this)

There he is after we found him in the HUGE crowd of people. It smelled like sweat and BO it was gross, obviously. After we found him we all went back to the house to relax, play a couple games of SCUM and watched a movie too. Overall, it was really fun and awesome to have family down to spend time with that I haven't seen in almost a year. Maybe I'll try to convince them to move down here so we all can be together.
