Dear Blizzard,

11.29.2010

Once again. I defeated you. You tried to keep me trapped (...forever) in Twin Falls. Not that I would have hated that because I do love my family and I love my home, but I wanted to be back in Provo. You closed all the roads you could. But I took the back roads. Drove east east east and then cut down south. I win. I made it to Provo. Safe and sound. Only took an hour or so extra, and here I am. Living the dream. Hit me with your best shot snow. Try me one more time.

Love,
Deidre

Dear Christmas Music,

You may now be played. Thank you for being patient.

Love,

Dear Blizzard,

11.23.2010


I am really glad I defeated you. Driving home in a blizzard would have been terrifying. Luckily for me, I took an extra week off of school and missed any and all snow storms for my drive up. Drive back... well, we will see about that.

A snow day all across southern Idaho and northern Utah. BYU campus even shut down early due to the upcoming blizzard.

Hope everyone is traveling safely for Thanksgiving.

Love,
Deidre

Dear Carillon Tower,

11.22.2010


You did not disappoint. In honor of the 7th movie... BYU supports Harry Potter.


Love,
Deidre

Dear J.K. Rowling,

11.21.2010


Thank you for making the following conversation possible:

Dad: So, what exactly is that?
Deidre: It is Tom Riddle's journal from the Chamber of Secrets...
Dad: Well, what is wrong with it?
Deidre: Well, it is a horcrux so it holds part of Voldemort's soul. That is specifically from when he used to open the Chamber of Secrets, so it is actually Tom Riddle's soul. It has that huge hole in it because Harry stabbed it with the fang of a basilisk.
Dad: You do realize you are only using made up words right now...

Love,
Deidre

Dear Friday Night,

11.19.2010

Surprisingly, sitting at home tonight is the best.

And when I say home, I literally mean home. In Idaho.

My Friday night has consisted of:
Playing a little Just Dance 2 with Jessica Baker
Watching the BSU football game with the parents
Going to support Mitch Bruneel at CSI (even though they were slaughtering the other team and he did not play a single second while we were there, I guess we will watch him tomorrow... oh, and he was player of the game last night, so proud of Mitch- double double)
Making Christmas presents
Making wedding gifts

And now, as soon as everyone gets to the house, we will eat some ice cream, chat, maybe watch a flick or play a game, and then go to bed to get ready for the temple in the morning. Thrilled.

Love,
Deidre

Dear Pink Eye,

11.18.2010


You literally are the most unwanted party guest. You are obnoxious.

GO AWAY!

Love,
Deidre

Dear Girl Talk,

11.16.2010

Your new release All Day has honestly been a highlight this week. I appreciated the impromptu dance party Nic and I had last night, all thanks to you. Our favorite track was This Is the Remix.

Surprise album, what a treat.

Love,
Deidre

Dear BYU Fans,

11.15.2010

We all know that this year will be hard to be Utah's football team... I hate to admit it just as much as you, but they have a good team this year.

So we can beat them another way.

BYU vs U of U food drive is starting now! Show your COUGAR LOVE and donate.

Dear Boys,

11.12.2010

P.S. Nicole wants me to point out, you should always open a girls door.

Love,
Deidre

Dear Baby Blizzards,

11.10.2010

Okay. I get it. It is winter now. I have come to terms with the fact that I can no longer go outside with just a cardigan on and all the [colorful] leaves are falling off the trees. And even though it pains me, I am ready for the bitter cold. My only request to you, baby blizzards, is that you decide if you want to snow or not. I prefer no snow or snow that sticks. None of this in between stuff because you are chickening out.

Love,
Deidre

Dear BYU Football,

11.09.2010

I am impressed with your win. 55-7. Good job boys. You did not disappoint the crew. Here is to the only game in which Michelle, Nicole, Kelsey, and me will all be there.


Love,
Deidre

Dear Boys,

I think I speak for most girls when I say this.

Do not ever ask out a girl via Facebook or text message.

All that shows is that you might be too scared to actually call a girl. And even if that isn't the case, that is what crosses our mind. If I get asked out by any text form, where it is read and not said, I will most likely say no... that sounds a little harsh, I know. But I think I deserve the respect of a phone call. And I think every girl deserves that same respect. Girls like to feel important.

Love,
Deidre

Dear Sarah Bevan,

Sarah. I was thinking. You make being best friends easy.









Love,

Dear BYU football,

11.06.2010

Today is the day.
Kelsey will be there.
Michelle will be there.
Nicole will be there.
Tiffany will be there.
Having all my best girls there is rare.
A lot of other people will be there too.
Lets pull out a win.

Rise and shout, the cougars are out.

Love,
Deidre

Dear Nine Beans And A Burrito,

11.02.2010

Thanksgiving break cannot come soon enough. I want you. Right now.

Dear Peaceful Pumpkin,


Thank you for reminding us all what this season is really about.


Love,
Deidre

Dear BYU Football,

11.01.2010

Hey, remember those times you won football games? Let me give you a quick recap:

When you played Washington you won, 23-17.
When you played San Diego State you won, 24-21.
When you played Wyoming you won, 25-20.

Here is some picture (note the scoreboard in the back) evidence.


Well... Kelsey Berg hasn't gotten to go to a game yet so this will be her first one. And Nicole will be going this week. Michelle and I like to look like this [happy] at the end of the games.



So this will be the first time the WHOLE crew is at the game. Could you keep that in mind and maybe pull out another win? Plus... you only need 3 more to be eligible for a bowl game. And wouldn't that be a treat?

Love,
Deidre

Dear Halloween,


Thank you for making it possible to wear costumes without being judged (even though in this first one, I am not dressed up. Long story. Sorry I couldn't play with you two nerds...).




And for making GEMS like this possible. LOVE. (photo credit goes to Nicole Wait. good person. good photographer. good friend.)


Love,
Deidre

Dear Cosmo,


Will you marry me?

Love,
Deidre

Dear Nephews,

Thank you for coming over for a sleepover.
Thank you for going on a treasure hunt.


Thank you for helping me find the treasure.


Thank you for helping me make cupcakes.
Thank you for delivering the cupcakes with me.
Thank you for doing a dance for my roommates and I.

Thank you for making me laugh.
Thank you for watching Happy Feet with me.
Thank you for sharing the two big mattresses on the living room floor.


Thank you for being so cute.

Love,
Aunt Deidre

Dear Fork Fest,


Sarah and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Fork Fest. It was super great. Really fun atmosphere, fun music, entertaining people... what more could I ask for? Music is such a huge part of my life and things like this just add to the passion and love I already had. Sheer enjoyment. Huge success.




Dear Liberty Square,

Thank you for giving me these friends. They mean a lot to me.


And even though we have all gone in our different ways. We all will end up in the same place to show our love to one another, that is what friends are for.


Love,
Deidre

Dear Neglected Blog,

This last month has been really crazy. October always is. First of all there is conference, then my birthday, then a bunch of my friends' have their birthday, everyone starts to throw fall parties and pumpkin parties, and then there is Halloween and all of it's festivities. Therefore. I have been a blog slacker. Get ready for a lot of posts all at once.

Love,
Deidre
