Well... the whole "having a life outside of the library" continued the rest of the week (Thurs: relax time with T, Fri: dinner at Guru's (BEST SWEET POTATO FRIES EVER) with Brick, Sat: 8-3:30 library then Rumbi (again with the sweet potato fries) with Emily and road trip to SLC to see Mrs. Katie Lifferth!)....but it probably shouldn't have... this week, no more fun for Bree... I'm not behind, but I am certainly not ahead. I have a feeling it is going to be a LONG hard week. (3rd set of midterms start this weekend and go through Thanksgiving) I did really need a break though so I am glad I got to be with all my friends this week and do something fun EVERY night. That really hasn't happened in SO LONG! I forgot what it's like to have a life....

Did I mention I am NOT a fan of Halloween. Such a strange day, I don't really consider it a holiday because there is NO purpose for it.... I do like candy though.

It's weird... 
I actually have a life outside of the library this week.
First time all semester.
Yesterday I made yummy treats with Talyn

best marshmallow caramel corn EVER!

caramel chocolate covered pretzels

caramel, white chocolate, cinn. & sugar.

fun goodies for friends!

Today I spoke with the newly wed on the phone.
Had dinner with Emily at Zupas.
Went for a long over-due trip to the temple.

and remembered why I love the Book of Mormon so much. 


2:25 (Lord speaking) "And behold, I prepare you against these things; for ye cannot cross this great deep save I prepare you against the waves of the sea, and the winds which have gone forth, and the floods which shall come, Therefore what will ye that I should prepare for you that ye may have light when ye are swallowed up in the depths of the sea?"

-this is exactly how I feel these days-

3:2 (Brother of Jared speaking) "O Lord, thous hast said that we must be encompassed about by the floods. Now behold, O lord, and do not be angry with they servant because of his weakness before thee; for we know that thou art holy and dwellest in the heavens, and that we are unworthy before thee...nevertheless, O Lord, thou has given us a commandment that we must call upon thee, that from thee we may receive according to our desires..(:4) I know...that thous hast all power, and can do whatsoever thou wilt for the benefit of man; therefore touch these stones, with they finger and prepare them that they may shine forth in darkness...that we may have light while we shall cross the sea..(:5) thou canst do this. We know that thou art able to show forth great power."

-pure faith. God will get us through, he will provide an answer if we ask with FAITH and listen for the answer. this is something I need to work on. I want to have faith like the brother of Jared-

3:6 "..The Lord stretched forth his hand and touched the stones one by one with his finger..."
-the Lord answered, He always does-

3:26 "..If he (Brother of Jared...aka US) would believe in him (the Lord) that he could show unto him all things-it should be shown unto him; therefore the Lord could not withhold anything from him, for he knew that the Lord could show him all things."

-the more we believe, the more faith we have, the more light we can receive, the more we can know, the closer to God we will become-

It's fall.

This means
Hot Chocolate.
Warm fires.
Cozy blankets.
Wool coats.
Fuzzy socks.
Yummy sweets.

and ONLY 4 weeks til Thanksgiving!! 
(remember, it's my favorite...and I've been away from home for the past two so I am SUPER excited......PIE FEST!!!!!!!)

A couple weeks ago I was stopped on campus so I could get a picture taken... 

Happy fall.

another wedding.

A gorgeous friend of mine got married a couple weekends ago and I AM IN LOVE WITH HER WEDDING! It was absolutely gorgeous and perfect. I knew Lindsey when I was a sophomore in high school, she was a senior, and we danced on Orem Dance Company together. She went to a school dance with my brother. Then years later we ran into each other in NYC at the singles ward. I was just leaving for the summer on my study abroad, and she was just coming for an summer internship. 


Now she is married.
Check out her LOVELY wedding HERE! Photography by: Alixann Loosle

Rooftop. Gorgeous Flowers. S'mores. Hot Chocolate. Stunning Bride and Groom. Lovely gown. Perfect Colors.

quote of the day

"Forget not to be happy now. Don't fail to notice the blessings we do have. Don't wait for the golden ticket. If we spend our days waiting for fabulous roses, we could miss the beauty and wonder of the tiny Forget Me Not's that are all around. Never lose hope, never stop striving, but don't close your eyes to each days beautiful moments." (it may be slightly paraphrased)
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf
It'll make your day better-I PROMISE.

Katie Agle Lifferth

happy Katie. Earrings: aBree Original

Wedding Festivities 

Dinner: the night before...

entertainment for the evening

Daren and his brother resurrected a little dance they did at their sisters wedding about 15 years ago. "When you hold my hand, you hold my heart." ADORABLE and HILARIOUS!

ALSO, Daren set up hidden cameras when he proposed to Katie so we were able to watch the whole proposal and literally it was hands down the sweetest thing I have ever seen. (good job Daren-you rock). I'm trying to get the video to post.... 

The dinner was awesome-prime rib! Yummy. 
and cake. 

sweet Katie recognized the special women in her life, my cute mommy was one of them

Oh! and if you haven't taken my advice yet.... BUY THE NEW GAVIN DEGRAW CD. It is his best work. Every song is PERFECTION. Literally, I've never been able to not pick a favorite or a least favorite on an album... all 10 songs are pure genius.
