Funny Story!!!

Okay so funny funny story...well it actually isn't funny. Now it is just a pain. So on Saturday I was riding in a big truck with my dad and we were hauling dirt into the backyard of our house and I had just gotten back from cleaning the church that morning. So...I was still in my good clothes cause I knew I would just be vacuuming the church and I had to look good for the boys that were going to be there obviously. Well we got back and I got in the truck with my dad. After a bit I realized that I was getting dusty and that I should run in and change my clothes and put the ones I was wearing in the wash before I forgot. Well I didn't realize that I still had my cellular device in my back pocket still and put my clothes in the wash. As I was getting ready to head back out to the truck I thought to myself and I said "Self, you need to grab your phone before you go outside." Just as I thought that I heard a clunking noise coming from the washer. That is when it clicked so I ran over and tried to open it as fast as I could but the washer was on lock. Finally it drained and I got my phone out. Well long story short it didn't turn on so I had to go get a new one. But I lost all of my numbers in my Jessica and Necia I NEED YOUR NUMBERS!!!!! It was also real funny cause while I was at the cell phone store a little old lady came in and walked up to a man and she said "I have never been helped by a man so rolly before." It was hilarious! That made my day. So yeah...that is my story. I hope all is well with all of you! LOVE YOU GIRLS!!!!

Too long...

So I was thinking and realized that I was the one that was so adamant that we all write on this blog A LOT...and yet here I am and I haven't written for a really long time so since I have nothing to do these days, I thought I'd drop a note :) So my sister visited all last week with my niece and it was so much fun! My niece is so fun and she's talking so much (she's 2) so it's hilarious to hear what words she picks up on and listen to how she pronounces them. Kids are the best, they definitely put life into perspective sometimes. I wish I had a really exciting story or something fun to tell you girls but...nothing comes to mind! I'm really ready to be back at school and be busy again! I know that will change once I start, but I decided I do a lot better when I'm busy rather than not having much to do. I am reading the book My Sister's Keeper that the movie was based off of. So far, it's really good but I heard the ending is nothing like the movie so I'm excited to find out what happens. How are you girls?? I know I talked to you last night but not for very long so fill me in on all the fun stuff! I miss you all!!

So seeing as how no one has written on our blog for a while and I am bored I figured I would do so, not that I have much to say but still. I will tell you a little about what I have done this last week. Nothing. That is about it. No I am kidding, I have applied to more jobs and still nothing. I have also been working a ton on my applications for the interior design program at both BYU-I and LDSBC. A ton of my family wants me to go to LDSBC just because it is closer to them which I would be okay with. I love Utah so that would be fine although I would miss Rexburg a ton! I still haven't heard from Cole at all and it has gotten easier not talking to him at all. Sometimes it still stinks and if something happens I think without thinking oh I should tell cole that or something lame and then I realize how stupid I am. I have been talking a lot to a friend of mine named Sean. He is a sweetheart but we are just friends. He is a good guy so don't get any ideas! ha ha ha! I have also been watching a lot of baseball with my brother and I really enjoy it! Those guys are awesome when they don't take steriods! ha ha! Necia and Jessica you would be so proud of me because I have been playing a ton of tennis! Crazy I know but I can see why you like it so much! I am not very good but its still fun and I am getting the hang of it! :) My theories on life have grown as well...such as...eternity is a very very very long time and we are here for like a milli of that so why are we sad or worried about boys and who likes us and who doesn't. Its all about being me and being happy and I will be fine! Life is great so why not enjoy it! :) Well I love you girls! Remember who you are and Jesus loves you! THE CHURCH IS TRUE!!!! Don't talk to strangers!!!

All i have to say is that you two, as in Amanda and Tiffany, BEST be coming to live with us in the fall!!! I have a bit of information that might help you guys make up your it is: They repainted our front door! See I knew that would make you want to come live here!!!! It actually kind of creeped me out because I came out of my room today, i was all alone, and i went into the kitchen....and our front door was wide open! I thought we were being robbed or something! but no worries i am ok and all of my stuff is still here! haha
Love you,

Rough news.... have some bad news possibly. Seeing as how I haven't gotten a job yet and still trying to get into the interior design program I might have to live at home for the fall semester. It is still up in the air but I have to make a decision by Monday so I can tell Anne to sell my contract or not to sell my contract. Now this totally sucks and my life is kind of in a whirlwind right now but you got to do what you got to do right? But my parents said that you guys can come live with us too! So that would be fun! Sarah knows how much fun it is at my house...tell em Sarah! So much fun! Words cannot discribe the fun you would have here! Just know I love you girls! Remember who you are, Jesus loves you, stand a little taller today! May the spirit be with you...your sister in the gospel, Amanda Jo Barrus

I miss you girls!

I just read both your posts and was so excited but then got really sad because I think we need to all be back together and all our problems would be solved! ha oh man, I wish, but I really do miss you girls and Amanda, I wish I was there! This whole thing makes me so sad and I just wish that there was something I could do, because I agree that this whole thing is too weird to not have something wrong. I just hope that you find out something soon, because waiting this long is not what you should have to go through! And..your spill about boys and how scary it is, I whole-heartedly agree! I was thinking about that the other day and about dating, and how guys have the biggest effect on us and how easy it is for them to be somebody they aren't while dating and then their real person comes out after marriage...I know that that's why it's so important to pray about it and everything, but it still scares me really bad! I just always hope that I'm not blinded by how flattering a guy can be while dating, and that I see those red flags beforehand, you know?
Sarah, I'm sorry about work!! I'm having the hardest time finding a job, and have just about given up on's the sad part, I'm 19 and I don't have any work experience...every break I've had from school that I could have had a job, I went straight to Utah and helped my sisters with their kids and I can't believe I never thought to get a job! Now, my resume is so lame and I don't have anything to show for watching kids all summer for my sisters and nobody will even take me seriously really because of it..I don't know what else to do because there are like no places to work here either! It's a joke! Sorry...that was my little rant for the day, but man I just feel so lame. It's not like I don't know how to work and work hard, but with no experience to show for it, employers don't really take the time to see that I guess.
I so wish we were all back in the same place, it sounds like we could all use it!! I love you girls and miss you!! Keep posting blogs, I love hearing about everything!!

Boy...oh boy!

So I have been pondering things know life and such. Sarah left me so I have lots of time at night to just think because she isn't there to tell me bedtime stories. I sure do miss that. But something still doesn't feel right about Cole. I still haven't heard from him in days which is really weird. People say well maybe he is just ignoring you and doesn't want to talk to you anymore which very well could be what is going on. But something in my gut is telling me that that isn't what is going on. Something just doesn't feel right. I don't know maybe that is just what I want to think. Anyways...I have thought lots about the impact guys have on girls. Guys could say anything to a girl and get them to do anything. Girls are so gullible and fall for it. I think that guys know it too. Some use that to their advantage and I have realized that girls need to be careful. We live in a crazy world and it is so hard to find a decent guy out there. Its scary to think about what could happen. So that is part of what is going on in my life. Another item of business is I think I have to go get my foot x-rayed today. It has been bothering me for a while and either way I think I need it checked to make sure nothing is wrong. I do have tendonitis in both of my feet but this is a constant pain. Its weird. Oh the joy my life has become. I think it is because I don't see you girls every day! I need you! I miss you all very much!!! I hope all is well and I love you girls!!! -Amanda

So after spending the weekend at the Barrus' house I have come to the conclusion that living in Rexburg by myself......STINKS!!!! I miss playing the Wii with Nic, telling Amanda some great bedtime stories!!!, watching "Say Yes to the Dress" late at night with Tiffany, going job hunting, and watching Harry Potter again! We really had some good times; I am for sure coming back sometime!!! And to make things even better, when I went to work yesterday I found out that my LEAST favorite manager of ALL time is moving back to the night shift!! So lucky me...I will get to work with her a LOT more! :( But on the bright side (maybe) some people at work might have talked me into going to denny's on friday night....the problem is they are all very young, most of them are still in high school! I NEED you ladies back here NOW!! :) And I finished all my Grey's Anatomy so I have nothing to watch if you see any good movies that are on dvd let me know! But I think that that is enough venting for one night, right? But I love you all, yes, even you Jessica (even after those cruel things you said last time!) :)

Another Adventure with Sarah and Amanda

Okay girls, so I will explain what happened with Cole and what I know so far-which isn't much. So on Sunday he called me when me and my family got back from Utah. We were talking and I finally told him I was ready to meet him which he was surprised at. I had told him many times before that I just wasn't ready but when I was I would let him know. So I told him I was and he said that the only time he would be able to come to Idaho would be that night because he started school soon and it would be a great way to get away before all of that started. He left his house at around 7:30 or 8 and got into Idaho Falls about midnight. He called me at one and told me he was here and that he was so excited to see me. He was so excited he was counting down the hours until I would see him. It was so cute! So we decided we would meet around noon because I had things to do in the morning. About 11 or so he told me that him and Bella were going to go for a drive and see the city because they don't come here very much so they were going to drive down to the temple and walk around and such. So he said he would be back in about an hour to meet up at Central Park. I said okay and at about 11:30 he texted me and said they were on their way back and he would meet me and Sarah at the part at around 12:15 or 12:30. I said okay and that was the last I have heard from him. So we went to the park and waiting till almost 2 until we decided that we were sick of waiting and that he would call or text when he was there. I have been kind of freaked since then because I don't know what has happened. I mean he went for a drive so I kind of assumed he got in a wreck or something but when I called the hospital they had no record of him or Bella there. So that was a good thing but it also put questions in my mind like "Why in the world is he not calling or texting me back?" or "Did he see me and Sarah sitting there and just not like what he saw?" plus so many more questions. I honestly don't know what to think and I wish he would just call me and tell me he was okay or that he just didn't want to see me anymore. I just need something! Its driving me insane! All I can say is pray for me and for him and Bella if something did happen. Just thought you would like to know what happened or more like what did not happen. Love you girls!!!!!!!! Miss ya lots!!!!!!

Jessica's and Necia's experience with Ontario singles ward!!

Me and Jess just got back from a most excellent fhe talent show at the Ontario singles ward. Boy, did you girls miss out! (Jess says hey and she also wants to add her side of the story :)) I will let her tell "Jessica's story" momentarily. once when i was a youngster i longed to be in the ontario singles ward...but...hahaha just kidding back to necia ;) I was getting to the most exciting part of the night...well, I think the most exciting part was when Jessica chased a penny. We'll let you fill in the blanks of that story, it leaves quite a lot to the imagination, but it's probably just as funny the way that you think it rather than if we tried to tell it. Ok, well some of the talents that were shared were comedy acts, piano, clogging to some "hip" music of the 2007 year. There was one act that we weren't quite sure it, but we smiled and clapped appropriately. Jessica really really really wanted to show off her somersault skills, but I decided to spare her the embarrassment and held her back. OH there was an actual gymnast...he was pretty cool, jess said he was legit so he must have been. Umm...then there were some stupid human tricks? I don't really know, but people have some weird things they can do with their body. IF nothing else, it beat sitting at home watching tv...I guess?
Jess would like you to know that she is eating a cheese sandwich, and she would like to share her experience eating it but I decided to not let her. She wants to yell at Sawah really bad...I'm sorry sarah, I would never let her do that to you!! :)
Ok, well we ...hey this is jessica---SAWAH I THINK YOU ARE A ***************%********* (POOPERSTAR) and yes sawah there are more stars and percents than what the word actually spells...that just shows how mad i really am at you silly...I THINK YOU ARE THE WORST @@@@@@@@%^&***((*&^^% EVER!!!!! that means i actually dont know...
Oh sarah, I am so sorry, I tried to stop her!!! Well, this was quite a long post, we will let you girlies go, have a fabulous night and we'll talk soon!!!!
Love you!!

Oh I miss Amanda and Sarah!!

Oh my word, I laughed hard..and a lot.. at that last post..I miss you girls so much!! And in response to your post, I will most definitely not be leaving you anytime soon! If the pattern continues, I'll proceed to not have any dates during the semester, date a lot at the end and then go on to never hear from those guys again :) Which I decided I'm ok with, because I will still have Amanda and Sarah..and of course Jessica, just not as one of us single ladies :) Amanda, on the other hand has a guy madly in love with her and I'm waiting in anticipation to hear about that so I better get a call!! Me and Jessica just got back from a fireside commemorating the building of our church 30 years ago...what a special treat :) Jessica will agree that it was a wonderful wonderful meeting. For about the first half hour..the next 3 hours were a little long. ha just kidding, it was only 2 hours, but still, people really really like remembering the good ol' days in Fruityland, Idaho. Who wouldn't? With a population of about 1,000, there were some good times had here. I'm just not making any sense, it would be a lot funnier in person when me and Jessica could tell you some stories but I will stop boring you. Love you girls!!!!

Closing Ceremonies of Spring Semester 2009

As we close this time in our lives, we remember all the times we had together. (Thank you Vitamin C-the band) We remember the good times and the bad times. We remember the good times and the better times. We remember the love and hate (Sarah and Jessica) that filled our apartment but the joy that every day brought to us. Looking back we remember the laughter and the tears. But most of all we remember the dancing. Lots and lots of dancing. We will never forget the memories made throughout that time as girls in 201. But we must not forget that we will be together again in 201 but without one of our puzzle pieces. That puzzle piece has a name, that name is Shakira. Oh kidding we are, her name is Jessica. She is leaving us to go be with a man. She will be missed but she will too miss us. Necia will probably be leaving us also seeing as how she dates like a mad woman. Every single night she is gone with a new piece of man hunk. So me and Sarah will share a room in my parents basement and enjoy each others company throughout this time. Until we meet again Jessica and Necia don't forget some words that have been spoken to me so recently. Remember who you are, remember the church is TRUE, remember Jesus loves you, remember not to talk to strangers, and remember we love and miss you dearly. May the spirit be with you always! Your sisters in the gospel, Sarah Marie and Amanda Jo

The Many Adventures of Us

Great news! We got new blinds today! Jessica was SUPER excited for this arrival so she ran in the apartment announcing that she was home. What she soon found out was that no one was home except the repairman! He had a good chuckle about that, as did we! We also took a trip to the Semi-Annual Sale at Victoria's Secret in Idaho Falls. We purchased $200 worth of product but only paid $68. It was a fun little trip for us to take as roommates in our roommate glory. We sure do enjoy eachother's company and Jessica's many stories! In our travels we danced to the songs that we love. Which include: Boom Boom Pow (Amanda and Necia's favorite), Right Round (Sarah's favorite), Poker Face, Spice Girls, and Calle Ocho (Jessica's favorite). Most people think we are VERY serious.....but in all reality....we are a bunch of kidders! As we embarked home our energy left us, Jessica fell right to sleep, Sarah was amazed by the lightning, Necia was just wanting to get home, and Amanda was deep in thought about her drawrings (yes, that is spelled how she says it!). Upon arrival we parted ways and ventured on to our own activites. Necia and Jessica went to the Purple Pirates football game and Amanda and Sarah went to spy on Tiffany and her FBF (FaceBookFriend). We didn't realize what great ninja skills we had! STOP DROP and ROLL! So overall, today was a good day! Love ya, bye!
Sarah and Amanda

Our HUGE bag that weighed many many pounds!


We all decided to make a promise and write on this blog as often as we can to fill each other in on what's going on when we're not together...and even when we are!
