I just wanted to do a post about my friend, Evonne. Evonne and I met when we were both working at RC Willey. Evonne was very pregnant with her daughter, Savannah when we met. We became friends, when she came back from maternity leave and started working nights. I have a lot of great memories with Evonne at RC Willey. Numerous trips to the gas station, Foosball, pool, air hockey, hanging out at the break room, trips to many places for lunch, taking a whole lotta pictures (see below!!), our "St. Patrick's Day" party, pizza parties and many other things. Outside of work we have been to Disney on Ice, the fair, the movies, the mall, Evonne's house... the list goes on. One of the main things that we do together is just TALK! It's so nice to have a friend that understands me so well and someone that I can tell ANYTHING to.

Evonne is so gorgeous (she has all the RC Willey boys drooling!) both inside and out! She has a great personality and you can't help but smile when talking to her! I am so thankful that she is my friend, and has been my shoulder to cry on more times than I would like to mention.

Here are just a couple of my favorite pictures of us!

My good friend Amy is moving to St Louis with her husband Elliot today. Elliot is going to be attending Medical school there. I was able to see them both last night. I'm going to miss Amy so much, she is such a good friend. She has been there through thick and thin. I love you Ames!

Some of my favorite TV shows.

Some of my favorite tv shows ended for the season this week (and 1 last week). I know I am a dork for posting this!

The Office Season Finally was so funny, and had so many twists and turns! It included a character leaving and coming, a pregnancy announcement, an engagement, and 2 office co-workers caught in the act! What ever am I going to do this summer? lol. I think I'm going to watch seasons 1-3 again. Thanks to my Mom and Bryan for getting me addicted to this show!

Scrubs ended last week. This season finale was a fairy tale that Dr Cox was telling his son. Thanks to JJ for getting me addicted to this show!

The Hills season finale was this week as well. I can't believe Heidi left Vegas with Spencer!Thanks to Evonne for getting me addicted to this show!

America's Next Top Model cycle 10 came to an end this week! The girl that I have been rooting for from the first won! Whitney is so pretty and actually has some meat on her bones! Congrats! I was excited when they announced her name, I was jumping up and down. haha.

On Saturday night I was able to go and babysit Savannah. Savannah is the daughter of my friends Evonne and Paul. Savannah and I had a lot of fun playing, watching Shrek and reading books. She has such personality and has quite the imagination! Here are a couple pictures we took to remember the night!

How cute is she?!?!

A couple weekends ago, I was able to go stay overnight in Midway with some of my favorite girls for Erika's bachlorette party. We went to dinner at Mountainhouse Grill in Heber. We went hot tubbing, played some games and had alot of fun! I love you girls!
