Engaged

Welp another one of my friends is ENGAGED! Just want to say congrats to my best friend Lexi Dahl, soon to be Lexi Stuart! She and her boyfriend Brock got engaged last weekend and i am so excited for her! These two could not be more perfect for each other it is kinda ridiculous.

Lexi and I have been friends since preschool. We grew up walking to each others houses, riding bikes to school, playing soccer, doorbell ditching, and being the little mischiefs of the neighborhood. When lexi moved in 8th grade to Arizona i was devastated! We continued to be friends even though we only saw each other once or twice a year.

Every time we are together it is like we were never apart. We could talk for hours and although we did most of our 'growing up' apart from each other, we are both so much alike! I credit a lot of my personality to lexi. When we were little, she was always the one to make me do things that i normally wouldn't do. "HALEY JUST DO IT! Are you scared? You wuss. Wow you're a sissy girl!" These were constant comments coming out of Lexi's mouth. I got in more trouble with Lexi than i have in my entire life, but i wouldn't trade those times for anything!

Lexi and Brock are seriously meant for each other. Last summer a bunch of us went down to AZ for Lexi's brother Ian's wedding. Of course, Brock, being one of Ian's best friends was in attendance. Lexi and Brock hit it off. Although they have known each other since we were tiny, it was this weekend that their relationship blossomed. I could see it in their eyes that they were falling hard and fast!

Nothing really happened that weekend between the two, but as soon as we left i could tell this relationship was going somewhere! They texted and talked on the phone all day, every day. Soon enough they were a couple, and began visiting each other as often as they could! They are scheduled to be married on August 14, 2010 in the Mt Timpanogos Temple. These two are a perfect pair.. who else would give me 'credit cards' while holding hands and walking through church? Only these two. I am so excited for these love birds!

beginners are many but enders are few.

For out of the bend and the sweat and the smile
comes lifes victories after awhile.."

Smart Hay.. Real Smart


Last monday i went to the computer center to do some research on an argumentative presentation i had to prepare. This class is only once a week and really isn't too strenuous. i pulled out my syllabus.. and realized very quickly that i had FORGOTTEN to take a test the week before. I immediately freaked. I have NEVER in my life not turned in an assignment, never not taken a test, and never turned anything in late. How the crap did i completely SPACE taking a 100 point test?

I honestly felt like i was going to pass out. i put my head on the desk and sat there for good 5 minutes repeating... How the crap!? What was i doing the previous thursday that was so important that i forgot to take a test? Oh yeah.. that day was April Fools. My roommates and i were busy pulling pranks on our neighbors. We were dying Easter eggs. We were playing with water guns til 2 in the morning. We were throwing confetti filled eggs at people. All awesome reasons not to take a test right?

Our "Water Gun Experiment" that we were busy doing while i should have been taking a test.

Luckily my good friend Ammon was there to 'laugh it off' with me. It was the weirdest feeling.. i was so devastated but i wasn't too worried about it for some reason. Yes-this meant i was probably going to end up with a B..maybe a C if i didn't ace my final speech, and my final test. SHIZZZ. Talk about pressure. I called my mom. She had the same response as Ammon.. she LAUGHED. My roommates-Same reaction. Laughing?! I was so confused why everyone thought this was so funny? CUZ it definitely wasnt.. WHAT THE HECK PEOPLE!

Well long story short.. I didnt say anything to my professor.. i was too scared, and i knew i didnt deserve to take the test. Plus he is a good argue-er ..hence he teaches Argumentation and Critical Thinking. I dont regret not taking the test because i learned a lot of valuable lessons from this experience.
1. play time is always more fun than study time
2. I became closer with my friends that day-we had some great experiences that i will remember forever.
3. Maybe i should buy a planner?
4. Life isn't over when something unfortunate happens. Life goes on.
and #5 comes from my mom who said..
5. At least it didn't have any Eternal Consequence.

How true is that? Sometimes i get so caught up with stuff.. that really doesn't matter. Yes, education is important. But i had more valuable experiences and learned more from NOT taking the test than i would have if i took the test. I am grateful for those who were there for me that day to laugh it off with and the lesson that they taught me that ..
life really does go on!

Easter week


Wednesday my roommates, i, and some other girls from the soccer team, decided to drive up north and watch the USA vs. Mexico soccer game. What a cool game to attend! it was freezing but definitely worth the horrible weather, and 6 hour drive home that followed!

On thursday we had friends over to dye Waster eggs! We had so much fun making each other eggs, and playing April Fools day tricks! hahahahah.. and there were definitely plenty of laughs! I think Whitley takes the prize for making the best eggs though.."Quality Eggs" as she would call them.


Friday i went home for the weekend and spent soo much time with my family! It was fun to be home and it was especially fun to have all my cousins from out of state in town!


The Annual Hansen Easter Egg hunt. I think i have set the record for consecutive years of finding the coveted "golden egg".. i think it is 4 years running now? i dare you to challenge me.
so happy about finding my egg.


Cutest little cousins! I am so sad they are moving to Italy this summer! What a cool experience though.. It is adorable hearing them practice their italian!... i am seriously considering going to nanny there next spring if my aunt can find me a family!

It is weekends and times like these when i realize how important family is. I love my family so much and i love spending time with them! I am excited to have the Andrizzi's closer to home.. They will be moving to Newport Beach this summer!.. and they better expect visitors!

creepers at the bank! funnyyy stuff

Last week i went to the bank to deposit some money into my account so that i could go pay for my passport. It was a crazy busy week last week in St. George for some reason and it was taking me forever to drive anywhere. Finally i make it to the bank, and there is a HUGE line for the drive up. I got in one of the lanes and waited, and waited. Finally, i make it to the front, put my money in the money sucker-deliverer thing, and sat and waited. As i waited, i had that feeling that you get when you KNOW someone is watching/looking at you. I finally got my receipt and just as i started to drive away.. some guy in the drive up lane next to me says..

(keep in mind--lane next to me.. honestly i could hardly even see this kid with out awkwardly leaning around the ATM.)

Creep: Hey do i know you? you look so familiar?
Me: No i dont think so...
-what i really wanted to say:NO you dont know me, NO i dont look familiar, and DID YOU REALLY JUST USE THAT PICK UP LINE?!
Creep: Are you sure? i mean you just look like someone i swear i know.. where did you go to school?
Me: I went to Jordan.. it's up north.
-what i really wanted to say: WOW really!? you are going to ask me where i went to school before you ask my name? if i look so familiar wouldn't my name sound familiar too? DUH
Creep: Oh thats cool. So i must not know you.. are you just down here going to school?
Me: yup.
-what i really wanted to say: No.. i am just wearing a Dixie State hoodie, i actually attend Dixie high and am a sophomore..
Creep: Oh that's cool. What are you studying?
(keep in mind at this point there is a huge line of frustrated people behind me waiting to use the money sucker-deliverer thing.
Me: Communication. How about you?
Creep: Oh that is sweet. i am doing the business program. But i am not sure which emphasis i want to go into or what i really want to do with it. I just love the business classes and ... BLAH BLAH BLAH on and on and on he went..
Me: Oh well good for you! good luck with all that..
-what i really wanted to say: Do you really think i care what major you are going into? and what emphasis and what your 5 year plan is? Oh? weird? cuz i didnt.

and this is about the time i drove away laughing.
what a great experience. :)
