Suprises. :)

Have you ever had cake in a jar?? :) Well whenever there are birthdays in my ward, my YW president gives us cake in a jar! :) It is SO good!

Next... Have you ever looked forward to something for a REALLY long time... and when the time comes, it's even better than you expected? Well I got to talk to my missionary boyfriend on Sunday! It was amazing!! :) I enjoyed every second of it! :)

(This is Elder Austin Kirk Egbert!)

Don't you just love little brothers?? I love coming home to them laying across your whole bed so you can't even get in!! ha. just kidding. It's actually kind of annoying. ha. He wouldn't move. But it was kind of funny too. ha.

Last... I got this beautiful necklace from Austin's sister, Ashley. She is so cute. She got it because she felt bad that she missed my Jr. Miss. ha. She is so nice. :)

Today in seminary we played Jenga. It was fun. ha.

Also... So today was SO weird. It started out pretty nice for Idaho.. then when I went to lunch, it was POURING rain. I was soaked. I love the rain, except when I'm in a hurry to get to class because then I don't get to play in it. ha.

Then in speech I had to give my speech today. It was a Media Analysis speech. I played my favorite song "Out of My League" by Stephen Speaks, and I talked about it. It was such a fun speech. I'm kind of sad that I'm almost done with speech. ha.

Well everyone Have a WONDERFUL day. :)

Interesting and Exciting week!!!! :) Sorry it's a really long post! ha. But it's fun and it tells detail! :)

Wow.... So this week was CRAZY!!! :)
First off...... So I was in seminary and we were having a treasure hunt.
We had to go all around outside and get different clues and go back to Brother Browning for the next clue... Well the rules were we had to stay with our group and we couldn't do anything to keep the other teams from advancing. Well there is one person in the group that doesn't wear shoes, another that has to wear a blindfold, another that couldn't talk, another that had to have scriptures, and another that had to write down the answers. Well I had the scriptures and so I had to look up everything. Well we went to the football field to the goal post and then went to brother browning and our next clue was back at the football field at this light. well they got the question and I was looking up the question and found it, so we started running back to Brother Browning, and a group that was behind us was trying to stop us from winning, so they (being them smart selves) decided to chase around the kid in our group that was blindfolded (Austin Surerus). They chase him in circles and then he starts running straight... Well everyone stops. They start yelling "STOP!! STOP AUSTIN!! You're gonna run into the wall! STOP!!" Well it was already too late. He ran into the wall running full speed. It was a cement wall and I heard it and I was like half way through the football field.
We run up to him and a thought goes in my mind, "Hey I learned at cheer camp that if someone's nose is bleeding to kick their foot and it will stop the bleeding." I go up to him and tell him I'm going to stop the bleeding and I start kicking his foot. I wasn't kicking it way hard though. Well everyone tells me to stop so i did. His face was bleeding and his nose and his lips were swollen and we asked if his head hurt and he told us his knee hurt. We responded with asking him if he hit his knee and he said, "I hit EVERYTHING!!" hahahaha. It was really sad but it was just funny that he would run blidfolded... into a cement wall. ha. Well we get him on his feet and we look over and Travis, the kid that was chasing him was sitting on the ground just looking down, and Hayden (another kid that was chasing Austin) said, "Ya that's right Travis... You think about what you just did." Just joking around. ha. It was really funny.
Austin tells us everything is blurry so I put my arm around him to help and everyone told me to take him to the office. We are on our way in there and the bell rings so everyone starts coming out of their classes. They see Austin and ask me if he got in a fight and they like act like they're punching the air. Well I tell them no he ran into a wall and I use my hands to show what happened. haha. Well also I almost forgot... so on the wall he ran into... there was Austin's blood, hair, and skin stuck to the wall. It was REALLY gross. haha.
Anyway so he tells me he wants to go in the bathroom and clean up and i say, "NO! because then I can't see you and know if you're ok. the office will clean you up."
We walk into the office and everyone stops what they're doing and takes Austin to a chair. They start cleaning him up and they tell me I have to fill out a report. I start to fill it out and Hayden comes in. He told me that he would fill it out so I could go get my stuff so I did.
Well I went to speech and right before I gave my speech I looked down and saw BLOOD on my pants!! I wanted to puke. haha. I hate blood. especially when its on me and its not mine! haha.
The next day Austin comes into seminary and told us he has a cracked skull and he got whip lash. ha. I felt SO bad. I told him I was sorry I was laughing and he told me not to worry, that if it wouldn't have been him, he would be laughing too. ha.
Then everyone starts telling me that they thought he was having a seisure when I was kicking his foot cause they just saw him moving and they didn't see me kicking him. ha. It was really funny. haha.
And sorry I don't have any pictures to explain the story. hahaha. :)

Do you have a pair of these sunglasses?? And if you don't, have you ever wanted a pair of these sunglasses?? Well I was driving downt the road and saw my brother's sunglasses. I put them on and decided I WANT A PAIR! hahaha. :) This summer I am going to buy some! :)

Friday was cheer tryouts. thursday we learned everything and Friday we had to tryout.

This was the dance we learned. :) and at the beginning there is a back handspring. haha. That's why she's just standing there for a little bit! :) haha.

Friday came around and I was SO nervous! For tryouts we had to make up a cheer, do a chant they taught us, and do the dance. And we had to do jumps and this motion thing to see how well we caught on. We had our interviews a few days before tryouts and they were fun! :)

I show up and a girl thats helping calls us over and draws our numbers on our legs.

Mine still is on my leg and I have scrubbed at it. haha.

Well I tried out and I thought it went well and then my friend Hailey Egbert and her cousin Sara Hobley came over and we drove back into Rigby to go to this party and we stopped by the high school to see who made it and I had to wait for a little bit, but when they posted the girls that made it, I was looking towards the bottom for my name and didn't see it. My eyes wonder up to the top of the paper and there's me name "Aubree Furrows- Captain" WHAT!!!!! I was having crazy mixed emotions when I saw this. I was happy and nervous and suprised and basically every emotion you can feel at once. hahaha.
I am so excited though. It will be a fun year! :)

Next.... Commencement.

I went with Taylor Roe. We went to Papa Kelsey's for brunch and then went golfing. It was fun golfing for the first time, but I am NOT good. ha. Otis (one of the boys in our group) was talking on the phone and was like "Ya it's pretty entertaining watching Taylor's date golf." haha. I looked back at him and was like What!! haha. It was funny. But like I missed the ball so many times and the golf club almost flew out of my hands a few times and it was crazy. ha. Well while we were golfing my cheer coach called me and was talking to me about some of the stuff she wanted to do and it made me SO SO SO excited for cheer this year! :)

Taylor didn't know what time he was going to pick me up so I was just taking my sweet time and then he told me he would be at my house at 6 when it was like 530. ha. So I started hurrying and he had to wait at my house for like a half an hour. I felt bad. ha.

I tried to put on his flower and it didn't work so my wonderul mom is putting it on! :)

My little brother Rusten loves to be the center of attention, so he had to be in a picture with us. haha. :)
Me and Taylor... notice his shoes. lol.
Well we start driving to IF and we were talkin about me getting ready and I told him I got out of the shower at 3 and he stopped the car and was like, "WHAT!! It took you 3 1/2 hours to get ready!!" haha. It was funny. But it didn't because I wasn't getting ready that whole time. haha.
So we pull up by this semi and I'm wondering what we're doing and then we walk in it and the inside doesn't even look like a semi. It was decorated so nice, and we had dinner in the semi! It was SO fun! haha. I had a blast! :)
Taylor and I on the way to the dance. :) The dance was a BLAST!!! at Hillcrest dances people actually dance!! It was really fun! I enjoyed it.
Taylor's flower! :)
My flower! :) I love it. It is beautiful!! :)
After the dance we went to Taylor's house and watched I Am Legend. haha. In our group there was Tay and I, Logan and Miranda, Otis and Bree, Zack and Kylee, and Austin and Jackie. :) It was fun. When I get the dance pictures I will tell you the story of them!! :) haha.
Today is Mother's Day so HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the mom's out there!! :) So here's to my mom. She is the best mom ever! She is always there for me and she is so cute. My mom is such a fun person to be around. I love you mom! I hope you have a WONDERFUL mother's day!!! :)
Have a fantastic day everyone!! :)

Ice Cream and Animals. :)

So I don't really like animals... but my dog Beasley is AWESOME!! He is so cute.

So you know how cats and dogs usually don't get along?

Well Beasley loves our cat. He gaurds her kittens like they are his own. If anyone comes near, he starts growling and makes sure they stay protected. The cat know Beasley is protecting them so she even comes out from under the bush for a little bit and does her thing cause she knows Beasley will take care of them. ha.

It was funny... My little brother today said, when we were talking about how Beasley guards the kittens, "It's like he's the father... Maybe he is!" haha. We all told him that's not possible, but it just cracked me up. Little kids are so cute and they have such a HUGE imagination. :)

Next... Rusten, my little brother, wanted to make Ice Cream in a can. So he got it ready and we helped him roll the can around.

It was so fun. ha. Except I got a MASSIVE bruise on my knee from the dang can hitting me so many times. haha. It was a fun family activity! :)

Can you believe this wind?? It is SO SO SO annoying. I feel like if I go outside right now, I will be blown away. ha. The freeway is closed and I don't even want to do my hair, because I know that once I touch the air outside... it won't be pretty hair anymore. haha. I'm sick of this Idaho weather. I want warm weather with NO wind. :) But I know thats not possible in Idaho. hahaha.

Tomorrow I have to give an interperative speech. I am pretty nervous/excited! It will be fun! :) It's a monologue on vampires. haha. :)

Have a wonderful day! :)


P.S. My Pretty Little Liars sequel I'm reading... well the second one, Flawless, finally got checked back into the library, so i can go enjoy it now! :)

Okay... so none of these pictures really do justice as to how good this stuff is. :) ha.

I LOVE cinnamon rolls...

Especially homeade. My mom makes the BEST cinnamon rolls. She could run Mrs. Powell's cinnamon rolls out of Business. :) I just love how there is SO much cinnamon in them and the frosting is TO DIE FOR!!! and the crust/bread is SO moist and delish. Even when they have been frozen for a while. hahaha. :)

Next item of food to cover....


Ok... so I don't know if you can tell... but this strawberry is seriously the biggest strawberry EVER!! haha. I felt like I was a mouse when I was taking bites cause I would look and I couldn't even tell I took a bite. ha. In the picture above I have taken a bite out of the strawberry. It was a normal bite, and it looks like a baby bite... Am I right? haha.

Well this is the strawberry before a took a bite. Doesn't it look just SO mouth watering? haha. It was. I LOVE fruit.... and basically food! :)

Last night I has some Reed's Dairy Praline's and Cream Ice Cream!!! :) Talk about AMAZING!!! haha. That is my facorite kind of ice cream from there. You should definitely try it! :) Well I didn't take a picture because it was dark so you wouldn't have been able to see it. haha.

Have a wonderful Sunday! :)

P.S. 23 days until my birthday!! :D WOOHOO!!!!
