Celestine Yeung & me, freshman year at BYU 2007

One of my really good friends, Celestine Yeung, just went into the Provo Missionary Training Center (MTC) as she was called to serve a 1.5 year mission for our church (more info here). She is headed to the Taiwan Taichang mission! I am so proud of her! She is one of my really good friends from BYU. I met her in the dorms, freshman year (2006-2007), and we've been good friends since! I asked her her name and I remember her saying "Cel, like cellphone" but her name is really Celestine, goes by Cel for short. She is one of my favorite Asian friends (I love Asia!) as she is from Hong Kong and also lived in California for bit while growing up. We both took Econ with the hardest teacher (Kearl), took dance classes in the dance department (the RB), loved eating Hawaiian haystacks in the Canon Center together, loved watching the BYU Men's Volleyball games together, and just hung out a lot!

Here is my Celly Cel...also I'm reminiscing from my years at BYU...
Here we are in my shared bathroom at David John Hall...
we were in the same ward, first floor, but different ends...if you know the dorms you'll get it ha!
Yeah, honestly don't remember the last time I've used an eyelash curler, not my thing lol.

So we all went to Walmart and bought big boys footed onesies!!! And then Celestine and I went out to the movie theatre wearing them...that was awkward haha. We were so embarrassed but ran into the theatres at Provo Town Centre and there were guys like "Oh what party are you going to tonight?"..."Um we are not" haha. Of course I am so tall that it barely was long enough...not comfortable I tell ya ;)
Me, Carly, Shayla, Celestine, Alexandra

  7. Roommates are the BESSST. Sounds like so much fun.

    And our bishop gave us a challenge to make a sacrifice regarding technology...so my hubby and I are gonna only watch church-related movies and stuff for a week.

I can't live without an eyelash curler...!!:) As far as general conference I actually just posted the treat buckets that I'm hoping will motivate my kids to listen to the talks. I also found this pre/during/post conference packets on Pinterest that they have been working on for the last couple of days. Thank God to Pinterest :)
