Turns out a citation is a fancy word for a ticket. . .not in fact, a warning.
Anyway, here's some pictures from recently. Happy Holidays!
Getting ready for the Christmas season.

Well, I was reminded as soon as I left my apartment. Immediately everyone started asking me what the heck I was...and then finally some boy asked, "Are you a Hooker?"

1. I am not very good at updating my blog even though I have been having an awesome and very eventful sophomore semester.
2. I am, however, good at taking pictures and I have documented many of these awesome events.

It's been almost a month since my last entry and I owe you an apology. Life has just been so crazy lately but here's the update on it:
So I moved into my Podunk apartment at Liberty Square in P-town. I have a whole 10x10 sq ft. to call my own that I pay $300 a month for. My roommates are awesome--I seriously could not have picked better girls if I tried. They are all older and have taken it upon themselves to take care of me. This care includes coming home to dinner on the table, taking out my trash, doing my laundry, killing spiders, aiding my pursuit of zoobie hotties, and fully appreciating me in all my provocative ways (this mostly involves them videoing me anytime I turn on music or tell a joke or just breathe for that matter)
I also have a great ward! I was given the inspired calling of a "Name Extractor" this last Sunday. Yeah...its great, they sustained me as well as the other 70 people in my ward who got that calling on Sunday. Proud day for the White family.
Oh my gosh! And the best part of my week was when I was going to class on Monday and I was stopped by an African-American (that means he was black) and told "You fly girl, you fly." I thanked him sincerely and as soon as he was out of sight I pulled out my handy pocket "slang dictionary" (also available online at www.onlineslangdictionary.com) and was pleased to find out that I am:
1. Very good, excellent, COOL.
So life is good as you can see! Write again soon.

1. She always has to be pretend to be an animal and once she is that animal, she does not break character for any reason.
2. She is still learning her tenses so she will say things like, "What did you said?" "Nonnie's got a stars in hers bedroom." "You gots a treat?"
3. She is so dang smart...she already knows all the letters and sounds in the alphabet.
Some favorite things about Jonah:
1. When he smiles he only shows his bottom teeth and it always looks mischievous.
2. He "fires" everyone and everything around him constantly.
3. He loves to share his gross, slobbered, germy food.
Some favorite things about Joseph:
1. He just walks around giggling to himself all day long.
2. He is so very cuddly and has the sweetest disposition you've ever seen.
3. He laughs like a fat lady.
My favorite things about being an aunt:

A little taste of what I am so excited for...
July 2, 2008
Location 1: Magleby's restaurant
When ordering my meal, the waitress asked the common question, "Would you like a soup or salad with your meal?"
Well, I heard: "Would you like a super salad with your meal?"
Waitress: "Would you like a soup or salad [super salad]?"
Me: "No, just a regular please."
Waitress: "Of the soup or salad [super salad]?"
Me: "Uh, no, I just want the regular one."
Waitress: "A regular soup or salad [super salad]?"
Me: "Does the meal come with a super salad?"
Waitress: "Uh, no. I am not sure what a "super salad" is.
As I stared at the waitress completely dumbstruck, Lindsey cleared the confusion by speaking very slowly as she acted out "sooouuuppp OR ssssaaaallllaaaadddd.....". I just wish she would've had finger puppets, it would have made the charade process go so much faster.
Location 2: Ms. Wynn's geography class
Our class was having a discussion about the guerrilla warfare happening in Guatemala at the time. She was telling us how they were attacking tourist buses and pulling people out of the buses and shooting them. I burst out in great distress, "You mean to tell me Gorilla's are killing people with guns? Where are they getting the guns? And since when are apes so vicious?"
2 weeks later....
My teacher was talking about how "we", referring to the United States, are as close to Cuba as Highland is to Brigham City. I turned excitedly to my best friend and told her we should plan a road trip there if its that close....how come I never knew this before? When I got home that day and excitedly relayed the news to my older sister Erin, who was kind enough to inform me that "we" had in fact not meant Highland, Ut.
CONCLUSION: Lauren should probably just teach kindergarten or something.

After 19 years of being told I could never learn, Jonah taught me how to read.
