As Leslie and I prepare for missions, we have come to the realization that Babesquad is going to be apart for a long long time... well not too long, only 18 months! But leaving for school this fall semester was a little bit harder than normal. I knew that I would only get to see them maybe once or twice more before Leslie and I reported. Katie is an amazing nanny and travels the world, at least it seems like, with one of the families she nannies for. She has it so good.. seriously! #Nannylife With that being said, she is going to be gone thanksgiving break and christmas break... SHOOT. So yeah, leaving for school in September was really bitter sweet. Especially remembering last fall and how we stay up until 3 am every night laughing, following boys, TPing houses and creating the most wonderful memories.
BUT, God knows exactly what I need. He knows me personally. This semester has been WAY harder than both of my previous semesters combined. Satan is working really hard on me because he doesn't want me to go out and serve my mission. Life has just been a little bit tougher. More road blocks, more discouraging days. But through it all, I have had my babesquad, my best friends. This particular weekend I just really needed my girls. I had had another rough week and just didn't want to deal with life. I wanted a fun girls weekend... but that wasn't going to happen because my girls were in California... but, like I said before, Heavenly Father knows me so well.. and knows my needs!!
On Thursday, I came home to this:
I was so confused as to why Ally was on my bed, but I didn't care. The week was almost over and I had a biology test to take and yada yada yada. I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw her because I wanted to take a picture to send to my babes. You see, they always lay in my bed without me... I wanted to tell them Ally did too!
As I continue to walk over to my bed, I saw a butt load of stuff on my night stand... that wasn't mine. I first saw a camera and thought it was Girdy's. Then I saw Katie's phone and then Leslie's phone!! WHAT THE HECK?!
I butcher explaining it,... so just watch this!
Yes, I found my two best friends, in MY bed.. again, but this time it wan't in California!!!
IT WAS IN REXBURG, IDAHO!!!
|the snapchat they didn't send...|
That night I had to go and take a bio test and then it was all babesquad time from there!
We started the morning out on campus, we ate crepes. They were delicious! Katie and Les both thought it was freezing, which was hilarious because it was in the high 40's! We ran to the store in between classes. After English got out, I came home and we got ready for the night! I was Anna from Frozen, Leslie was a Scarecrow and Katie was a cowgirl! We went down to Texas Roadhouse to eat and then planned on hitting up the off campus party but the line was three hours long and they were at full capacity already.. so no one else was getting in. We went back to Dennis's apartment and they tried a social experiment on YikYak.

When babesquad became the babeQUAD.
Ok I have to say, I was actually not too scared for this one. I am not a huge fan of scary, but I wanted to go to the Haunted Mill. It was just up the road a little and I had been wanting to go all fall season. Leslie was super pumped and Katie and Ally almost pooped their pants on their way. It was quite the experience to say the least!

ALWAYS A PARTY WITH THESE BABES.
When we got home we watched a scary movie.. I don't know why I ever agree to these sorts of things because I always get so freaking scared. I don't even like this stuff! Needless to say, I hid under the blanket the entire time.
endowed with this chika!
I love my babesquad so much. I don't know what I would do without them. I am so grateful they were able to come up and surprise me. I know the next 18 months- 2 years is going to be difficult not being able to all be together, but Leslie and I will be off serving missions and Katie will be living the high nanny life! I can't wait to be reunited once again!
Love you babesquad!!!
*And HUGE thanks and shoutout to Ally who kept this from me for weeks!!!! You're the bomb girl! Love you so much too!*
