Ciao from Italia!

Italy is beautiful! i am absolutely loving it here. The sights are gorgeous and nothing beats spending time with family. 

On the Island of Capri
Eating lunch in Sorrento
The prettiest views i have ever seen! The water is soo blue!

The lemons are gigantic.

Tomorrow we have some shopping and other fun things while saturday we have ROME! so stoked.

.....and....Simply for your viewing pleasure..
..What a glorious sight right? we like to call these ladies the "Italian Momma's"

...Every day they go out to the beach and sit on these rocks.. do-rags and all. so great

Airport thoughts

Welp i have been sitting here for the past 5 hours.. here being the London airport, and i have had quite a bit of time to think. This post is a little look into the mind of Haley Hansen in the last couple hours, and might i also add.. i still have 4 more until i can board my flight. yay.

Why do people think it is acceptable to walk around airports barefoot? i mean i understand the whole security check point jazz.. but seriously! people. keep your shoes on. i dont want to stare at your nasty feet. Oh and also.. picking the lint out from between your toes is also completely unacceptable! gag me.

guessing where people are from is quite a fun game. even though i never muster up the courage to ask them, i am pretty sure that i have been right 100% of the time.

This stupid ding dong alert noise for announcements gets old after the first 3 times you hear it. It reminds me of the movie Grease when the lady dings the little bell before she makes the morning announcements. I laugh. If i could be the bell ringer i think the people of this airport would be a lot more amused.

This "charging station" is a piece of crap. Half the time it works. Half the time it doesn't.

I want to sleep but i am so scared i will sleep through my flight. .... 4 hours away? i have issues.

So sad to have left Kenya. It is a place i thought i would only visit once. I have now made friends, and maintained relationships that i can't even wait to go back again.

Feeling extremely blessed to have the gospel in my life. out of the thousands of people in this airport i might be the only one with the whole truth.

Missed the brother opening his mission call. Guatemala City North mission. How sweet. His shaking voice as he was opening the call over the phone was the most adorable thing i have ever heard.

Obsessed with Carrie Underwood's cd this past few weeks. love her. Oh and He is We. Love them too.

Can't wait to see my cute little cousins and family in Italy. If only this flight would hurry the freak up.

Ben will be in America in 3 days. I will see him in 9. i am full of so many emotions its impossible to explain. Hopefully i will talk to him before we see each other.

Cafe Rio sounds AMAZING. I am so hungry for good food! ....maybe i should get food.. but spending 15 bucks on lunch does not sound appealing.

Kali had ankle surgery while i was gone.. i wonder how our room looks?

Slightly still mad at the security lady who took my travel sized bottle of contact solution. How could i manage to get through security 4 other times with it.. but suddenly it isnt ok? anger.

Saddened that my sorority has called quits. Not quite sure on the details but the First Presidency made the decision so it must be right. still sad though.

So excited for Ute football games. Scottie and i couldnt stop talking about it this whole trip!

my traps are killing me. i think all this stress has finally caught up with me!... i get this issue from my mother.

i am craving a good run right now. hahah maybe i will take a lap around my row of chairs. next to this blasted charging station!

Laughing at the thought of our hotel in nairobi. Next to a legit African night club. Now that is a story for another time.

Amazed by the fact that i legit kissed a GIRAFFE. wanna see...? later for sure. it's on fb people. but i will post it for you followers i dont know. :)

And how about a pack of lions cuddling up to our safari van? incredible. that vid will come soon too.

...For now i am done. but soon enough you will hear all my stories from Africa and Italy. These few pics can hold you over until then. i hope all is well back in the good ol U.S. of A!

the darling children at Mundichiri primary school

Kissin the giraffe..  you're jealous i know

spending time with the Masai men. amazing.

These Lovelies..

were delivered to my doorstep on Saturday. Slightly confused, i read the little note that came along with them. "Happy 21st Birthday, thinking of you on our day" it read, with a few other sweet words also attached.. signed by who you ask?... "your boy in Mozambique".

Am i one lucky gal or what? Oh and don't worry... we are down to 28 days now. 

1 month!!!!!!!

Have it be known that today marks ONE month until i get to see dear elder Woolf. I have to say.. amidst all the chaos and total craziness of getting ready to go to Kenya, i can hardly focus. I am just so excited. i feel like two years worth of trying not to think about him coming home is definitely hitting me right now. hahah it is driving me crazy! 23:1 is the ratio now.. that seems doable right? Let me just say this.. going to back to Kenya will be my saving grace for the next month!!

Sister Conrow and BFF Haley

Well well well.. it seems as though i now have yet another missionary to write. i swear this list is never ending! just when i though i was going to be done writing particular... i get to add another one to the list. This time i will be addressing my letters as 'Dear SISTER Conrow" instead of the usual 'Dear Elder so and soo'. I couldnt be more proud of this girl and i am so excited for her to serve in the Independence  Missouri Mission! Anyone know anyone else serving there? I love Paige and she is going to be the most amazing missionary!
The roommates of 6J... Whit. paige. Min. Hay.

Just ignore whit creepin in the window..

Now on to my next little bit of sad news.. my dear best friend Haley Dutson moved to Denver this week. It's a good thing we hit up 80's dancing for our last hoo-rah until August. Equipped with the overalls and all! Summer really isnt going to be the same with out her! This week has already been wayyyy tooooo slowwwww. But she is growing up and doing a sweet internship at a pharmacy up there. She is little miss smarty pants and will be applying to pharmacy school this fall! So cool.

In other Happy news! i leave for Kenya in one week. Can you say hello London, Kenya, and Italy?? WAYYY TOO EXCITED RIGHT NOW.

Just so. so. so. busy.
