Kassidy and I posing for prom...ha ha or just taking a funny picture before going out one night.
This huge spider was outside of our front door! Kassidy and Brynne put him in a bucket then ran him over with the car 3 times to kill him and he was still twitching after that! Then a week later there was another huge spider in the same spot! Gross! I can't wait to come home where all of the bugs are dead for the winter!
Our friend Connor came to visit us for a few days! He is doing the same internship over in Puerto Rico but he had a few days off in a row so he flew over! WE LOVE CONNOR!!!!
Meagan and I getting ready to go out one night. Just a funny picture because I think these type of pictures are way cheesy!
The sign by the entrance to the church. The branch members are so great here. It is awesome to be a part of this wonderful church!

Once we got underway we went out to the Red Hook area of the island and chilled there. We met up with our Manager Laura at Fat Boys and took some pictures. Then when we were leaving another "fun" thing happened. Fat Boys is upstairs and is known for having really, really slick stairs and to make things worse they were wet! Well being the clutz that I am my one foot slipped out from under me and I practically did the splits on the stairs! Luckily I wasn't hurt at all and got an awesome bruise on my arm from this!
After Fat Boys we went over to Caribbean Saloon and listened to a local band called Bad Men play. They were really good and I can't wait for them to play again so we can go listen. We met up with the coasties there but left because it was way crowded! From there we went over to Duffy's and danced the night away! Of course we had to take some pictures with the "Missionary's" (I inspired their costumes, ha ha love it)! Anthony, Joss and Cory are so funny and we had a great time hanging out with them.
All in all Halloween was a fabulous time! I am sad I wasn't at home to see all of my nieces and nephews cute costumes but hopefully their moms will put pictures up soon so I can see! Hope everyone else had a great night as well!

- Para sailing-This looks like so much fun and what better place to do it?
- The BVI- So many things I want to do over there...I really need to get on that!
- Puerto Rico-Our friend Connor came and visited us from Puerto Rico...now we need to go see him! (Side note: We met him at training, he is on an internship with Del Sol in Puerto Rico)
- Get Scuba Certified-Something I really want to do and it is so much cheaper down here...hopefully I can make this happen!
Just a few things, but still I need to work on them! Hopefully by making a list I will finally do some of them! I hope you all are enjoying the beautiful fall weather back home and getting ready for Halloween! I love this time of year so I would greatly appreciate any pictures people have that they would send me!

Dear General Conference: You were amazing! It was exactly what I needed to hear! Thank you to all of the inspired leaders of the church for giving such wonderful talks.
Dear Roommates: I love you! You are wonderful girls! I am sorry when I act like a brat, I swear it is nothing personal to you!
Dear girls at work: I would really appreciate it if you would all stop fighting with each other over sales in front of customers! So unprofessional! Also please work on showing up on time, not being on your cell phone constantly, and helping out around the store more, I am not the only person who knows how to fold a t-shirt!
Dear former managers: For all those times I gave you some major attitude (lets face it I am the queen of attitude!) I am sorry. I now know how annoying it is when employees wont do what you ask them to do! Sorry about that!
Dear Postal Service: My mom sent me a package over a week ago and it still has not arrived! I am not so happy about this! Please have it get here soon, or send it back to her so that I know it is not lost in the mail! I would cry if it becomes lost!
Dear St. Thomas: You have been wonderful to me so far, but really lets work on the price of food over here ok? Also lets not run out of water at our house again. I know I didn't have to pay to have it filled up but really that was just annoying!
Dear whoever is reading this: Obviously I am close to you or you wouldn't have this website. I love you and hope you are enjoying the beautiful fall weather that I am missing down here!

- Tyler had his 1st birthday yesterday...I love this little boy so much and miss his big slobbery kisses! Amanda said he is walking all over now...how fast things change!
- Gwen turns 6 tomorrow! She is so dang cute, funny, smart, hilarious, etc...I wish I could be there to celebrate and attend the birthday party!
- Fall...It is summer here all year long which is nice in some ways, but I want the fall colors of the mountains right now!
- My family...I miss seeing everyone whenever I wanted to!
- Good food for a reasonable price...food over here is so expensive!
These are just a few things I am missing at the moment! But really I love it here and I am having a good time! I will try to post more pictures soon!

Dear Weather: Kassidy was going to teach me how to kayak today. Then you decided to do a 180 a half hour before we were to go. Please make this up to me before I leave for St. Thomas where I will need to know how to kayak.
Dear Del Sole: Thank you for selecting me for an internship. I can't wait to start. But why is your information packet taking so long to get here?
Dear Maurices: I have loved working for you and will miss you and my discount terribly when I leave.
And finally Dear Mom and Dad: I love you, but stop leaving me so often at night. I know I am a big girl, but I get scared in the house all by myself and the couch is no fun to sleep on!
Love to you all, Laurie
