So Saturday night Quinn and I along with Erica, Dave, the kids, and Connie and Doug all went to the western Idaho fair. While we were there the kids wanted to go see the hypnotist. I have always wanted to be hypnotized but never had the guts or never got picked. This time it happened and I went completely under! According to everyone I was the star of the show. I even got stopped at other parts of the fair later on that night and got asked if I was that girl who was hypnotized..they referred to me as the star, so there were no biased opinions. Here are just a few videos of things I did, sorry they're a little fuzzy they were taken on Quinn's phone.
This is one of me falling asleep. He would say "SLEEP NOW!" and I would become completely limp and fall over. I apparently fell into the lap of the man sitting next to me..oops.
In this video I was the winner of 10 million dollars..I was SO EXCITED! I remember a lot of what went on and at that time I couldn't do anything but scream :)
After I had won my 10 million dollars this is what I was going to do..
I was asked to count my fingers but the number 5 was erased from my memory so this is how I ended up counting..
When I was asked to return to my seat my feet weighed 200 pounds and there was no way I was moving them.
This was more towards the end of the show and there wasn't much more that happened that was post-worthy. If you want to see the rest of them you'll just have to make a visit to Logan and we'll show you the rest of the show and maybe if you're nice we'll feed you too :)

I really can't wait for these next 8 days to pass. It's not that I hate living here, it's just that I miss everything I'm comfortable with and my family, all of whom I'm extremely close with. I'm looking forward to school starting as well as looking forward to finally having a place of our own. We are so grateful to Dave and Erica for being SO kind and letting us stay at their house all summer long, they have been very hospitable and we can't thank them enough for all they have done for us...but..we just want our own place so that we can finally be completely married. For some reason it just seems like we haven't truly experienced what married life can be like while living with other people. It will be nice to have everything be ours, to have it be our home, and to be able to have our own rules of conduct :) It's been a little frustrating trying to find a couch, nightstands, a dresser..etc., so if anyone has any spares lying around you know who needs them! Please don't hesitate to share them :) Tristan's blessing went really well, Quinn did such a wonderful job and gave a beautiful blessing. I, of course, bawled like I do so much of lately. I knew he would do great though because he is great :) I love him so much more than I did just a few short months ago..I can only imagine how much that will grow as the years pass and we get to know each other even better. :)

I feel like such a high school dweeb. Friday night I went and stood for an hour waiting for a book among a crowd of love struck high school girls who are infatuated with a fictional character. The sad thing is that I was just as excited to get the book as they were..I can't believe I'm admitting this. I kept complaining of how stupid each girl was being and how annoyed I was of each of them..only to find myself doing exactly what they were doing in the safety of my own car..oh well, I just got out of my teenage years just last year :) Things have been going much better and worse since my last post. The temple finally reopened so Quinn and I were able to go and do a session that, to my relief, calmed and filled me with the peace and comfort I was so desperately seeking. Then I had a meltdown to Quinn the next night and everything has been better since. I'm just finding things to keep myself occupied rather than feeling lonely. Today I baked a loaf of bread and of course I have my teenage heart throb book to keep me entertained as well. Don't think that I'm not counting down the days until we move back to my place where comfort is abundant though..18 to go and counting! We'll also be heading down to Utah this weekend for Tristan's blessing, that Quinn is giving to him..and is very much nervous about..I think he'll do great despite his nerves :) Speaking of Tristan I forgot to post some of his pictures with my last post..so here they are, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
