Memories

Ok, so by now I am sure you have done a million of these, but I am interested to see what people have to say.

Here are the directions: 1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I have had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember. This can be about me or Ben. 2. Next, repost these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It is actually pretty funny to see the responses.

ok, i have a few. I remember you and Joel coming to visit in Price quite often. I remember you guys coming to our really big house there and to the dorms. I remember going to your parents house and skating your brothers mini ramp. It doesnt seem that long ago but come to think of it, it was 10 years ago.. wow

As a teenager I remember seeing you are our house quit often! Your smile makes me smile!!

But a more recent memory was watching you walk out of the temple with Ben. What a beautiful smile you had on your face!! And you looked so very beautiful! I love weddings and yours was one of my favorites to video. Everything was perfect! Actually, I show your video quit often to others because it was so perfect!!!

And now.... I get to see you when I come to see Niel at work! Again... it is so nice to see your smile.

Well, of course I remember the night we came over to "check you out!" You had just been in the hospital and were probably in so much pain but you sat there on the couch and talked to us for like an hour! (And of course, we LOVED you!) I also remember the night we did photo directory pictures and there Jen and I were, sitting in someone's house when you and Brittney showed up! You had like twice as many pictures as us and we were just chillin' on the couch! Ha! Also, playing tennis at the high school - we were AWESOME!

I've only known you for 4 years or so, but there are already sooo many memories to choose from. Our 2004 trips were great, but as for you and I memories I would have to say the night we were at the beach and we decided that you had to find yourself a permanent man and that's when I found Ben for you! Your welcome!!!

I remember soon after you got home from your mission your family threw a birthday party for Joel. He brought Kristy to the party. I was so sad about it... You and I went outside and just cried and cried together in my car. Who knew what life would bring so many years later.

I remember you being one of the camp leaders up at Girl's Camp one year. That was fun!
I also remember when you came over to my house with your nose pierced. It looked a little red and sore. Good times!!

Ben said...

I remember our first date, when I taught you how to properly eat with your hands filipino style. I remember dazzling you with my guitar skills. I remember our Sacramento trip and how I was soooo blown away at how easy it was to converse with you. I remember our first kiss (yeah it was probably the best in your life). I remember the first time I saw you, I thought I had the hottest girl on earth. You were thinking the same thing about me... except it would be the hottest guy on earth, cause you know, I'm not a girl...

I remember putting hi-lites in your black hair. I remember hanging out with you and Joel, and I remember Joel and Cody going over to Marks house to beat him up. LOL.
Hanging out with you at Tiff's wedding was so nice. I love being around you. You are a very caring and fun person to be with.

I actually just told this story to someone the other day. I remember piercing your belly button in mom and dad's kitchen with an ice cube and a sewing needle. I cried more than you did because feeling the needle "pop" through the thickest part of skin was so terrible. I asked if you were all right and you just told me to hurry up and finish. The funniest thing is that we obviously hadn't thought it all through because we had no ring or anything to put in once it was pierced. We put a cotton ball in your belly button and taped the needle to your stomache. WHAT WERE WE THINKING?!!

Carmen- I remember a lot. You and I have had some good times. I'm glad you let me hang out with you guys when you were in Utah at college and didn't shun me as your dumb little sister! :D
BUT...one memory that sticks out is the night you called and told me about Ben, and the dance and what he was wearing. Haha! You told me you had kissed him and how serious things were already becoming. I think you were as surprised at the speed of it all as I was. :D

Ben- Oh Benny boy! Every single time I walk into a store and see a funny t-shirt I think of you!! It's just who you are! LOVE IT!

My memory is of when you two came to St. George for Avery's baby blessing. We were at Michelle's house afterward enjoying family bonding time when Ben spotted my baby. He was a few months old by then and REALLY chubby. Ben wanted to take a picture and send it to his family and tell them it was his child. Ben you are a funny guy.

i remember us at the end of our missions in TaoYuan...we were in the apartment, on those bunk beds... talking about how we were going to do the "beautification" process the month before we went home - so we didn't look like missionaries in tropical heat & humidity with skin that doesn't hold makeup. there's a ton of other memories - at BYU, etc, but that was the 1st that popped into my brain.

Tiffany Johnson said...

Carmen... two words. Bridal Pictures! hahaha! k, I remember freezing my butt off helping you take your Bridal pictures. First of all, I remember hiding under your dress, holding your slip up for one of them... and then running through the snow to get you some water cuz you thought you were going to faint, THEN.. the MOST memorable of all, the famous dive into the reflection pool by your mom! I will never forget that day!

Ben...I just remember all the times you play (and tease :-P) Hailey. she loves it. AND I remember that you and I are obsessed with dipping rolls in ranch dressing. Oh.. and when you would come to game night. I also remember that time you borrowed my bike and broke it! hahahahhahah Good times! :-)

We love you guys tons!

Jennica said...

I was trying to remember the first memory that I have of you Carmen.... All that comes to mind is Britney Spears. The memory is a bit hazy- but someone at the Jolly House was listening to BS (either you or me) and then we just instantly became friends. Since then we have had plenty of memories made, talking about boys, ditching class, Speedy T, cougar video, Taiwan, girls trips etc. etc. You are the BEST! I am so glad that a really creepy singer (who does make some fun tunes) brought us together! Love ya!

Rebecca Leigh Hall said...

So this one time, I was trying to be pc in answering you at work and then I turned to everyone else and said I didn't know what you wanted me to say, and then you smacked me. Smacked me so hard you left your hand print on my arm. Good times. I don't know what I would do at work without you. :)

Amber said...

I have a lot of memories with you! I remember the first time I met you and you weren't scared of me like all of the rest. I remember a sad one... when Valerie died and you were there. I remember when we were spying on my dad's "friend" LOL. And she drove past my parents house. Funny, now she is his wife. I remember when we took you down to NM. And a recent one was having dinner with you and Ben. Good times!

Justin and Jessica said...

I remember...that you need to update your blog!!!!! :D

Todd and Heather Moulton said...

Everytime I hear Lifehouse, I think of drives in your Hyundai. Or when our house was too cold and we'd sit in your car out front with the heater on. And I remember countless night drives to Wendys for fries and frosties (with extra salt for your pleasure). The other day I dreamed about the call center I dropped food off to you at a few times, weird dream. Cheers to Jolly House memories!

Barkley's said...

Hey Ben its Stefani Barkley (used to be Ellingson when you knew me) anyway I got your blog link from Jason's blog. I have the funnest memories of you during our singles ward days :) One that sticks out in my mind is when you and I hung out one night and went to dunk'n'donuts and got hot coco and donut wholes then went down to river front and watched the water and talked while we ate our donuts lol Also I remember our fun trip up to that old couples place in salem (i wish i remembered their name) anyway, we spent an afternoon hanging out there talking to the wife and she made us waffles (it seems my memories are centered around food)
Anyway so thats that good to track you down and checkout your blog old friend!
