Calling All Prom Dates

It has been one hectic week! Mid-terms are never fun and now that they are over we are over the hump and on the decline, which means school is going to be over before we know it. We counted the days and we only have 40 left on this beautiful island. :(
We kicked the weekend off with the BYUH talent show on Friday night. It was full of singing, dancing, magic, comedy, and beatboxing. But the best was one 3 guys got out there and did the Single Ladies dance. We had a lot more fun than we were expecting. We laughed, cheered, and sang our way through the entire thing. It was also Diet Coke Friday which made it that much better.
I crawled in bed that night and ended up staying awake till 3:30 am watching a movie only to be woken up 2 hours later to Jess and Kelsey banging and screaming at our door. Neither Lohren or I were that thrilled with this, but reluctantly Lohren got up and opened the door and they barged in telling us there was going to be a tsunami. Not really knowing what to do I grabbed my phone and saw that Egan had called me, I called him back and had never heard his voice sound so serious. He explained that the tsunami was suppose to come at 11:19 and that we should think about getting into the car and finding higher ground somewhere.
We were then approached by our RA's telling us there was a meeting downstairs where we were informed that we are on the safest part of the island and if everyone stays on the second floor of the dorms we should be fine. So we went and packed up Jess and Kelsey's valuables and headed to our room where we sat for the next 7 hours waiting for the tsunami that never came. Through out those 7 hours we tried to sleep unsuccessfully, had the news on our computers telling us the play by play, and pretty much just sat. Well, I can only do so much sitting and not doing anything so I was soon getting out paper, scissors, and glue and began doing some cute little craft projects. Then I became so claustrophobic in our small little room that I went on to cleaning and organizing the room. Finally we were given the all clear and that no tsunami waves were coming at any time in the future.
We were so excited to hear the news that we could get out of our room that we showered and headed into town where the shops were just starting to reopen and we hit the mall. Unfortunately, every store we wanted to go to (Forever 21, American Eagle, American Apparel, Abercrombie) were all closed. So we found some cute little store we hadn't been in and then headed to Macy's. This is where the fun really began, we each picked out a ghetto-looking short prom dress and tried them on, they were pretty hilarious.

Then we decided we had to try the floor length ones too but this time Lohren and I picked out each other's and Kelsey and Jess picked out each others, it made for some good laughs. After eating some dinner at the food court and sitting in Old Navy for a good hour we headed back home. Even though it was only 10:00 Lohren and I had been awake for way to long and headed to our room for some sleep.
