Oh Pizza Pie Cafe.. I love you

We just barley opened a restaurant in Highland, Utah, so I have been going up there to train all the newbies! Yesterday was their first day open and it was quite exciting! I prepped some of the salad in the Provo store, and then Megan and I went up there around 10 and set up all the food for the day and trained the kids when they got in around 4. We didn't end up leaving until 9!! I was working for 13 hours yesterday!! Phew!! I was EXHAUSTED to say the least. We went up and trained again from 9-6 today and it's actually pretty sweet!! All I have to do is show them what to do, and then watch them do it for the rest of the day, making sure they're doing it right and answering any questions they have. And I just stand there. Oh, and the best part about it.... I'M GETTING PAID $10 AN HOUR WHENEVER I'M UP IN HIGHLAND!! Found that out this morning! Best news ever!! Okay.. I lied.. That wasn't the best news. Here it is: I get to wear a blue PPC shirt, and on the back, wanna know what it says? "TRAINER- Teamwork is a bunch of people doing what I say!" FREAK YEAH!! Ever since I started working, back in October and I saw all the Idaho trainers wearing those shirts, and I've been hoping and waiting for the day that I got to wear one.. And my time has come (: I feel all legit and stuff.. It's sweet!

I was incredibly productive yesterday, and it was quite strange. Neither Kaylee or myself really knew what to say about it. I cleaned my entire side of the room, and I really should have taken pictures because it was so disgustingly .. well, disgusting. With Kaylee going to Washington next week, she's moving all of her crap to Aunt Pat's until she gets back in the end of August. Under my bed were three boxes of both of our stuff that we obviously didn't need too desperately, since we hadn't even gotten the boxes out since we moved here last August. So I decided to take everything out from under my bed, sort it out (got rid of two boxes), moved my scrapbook boxes out from under my bed to be my night stand so that I have more room under there. Then Kaylee took all of my clothes out of her dresser, so all of the above, plus more, was on our floor. And yesterday was the day that I organized everything!! The only stuff on the the floor is Kay's crap, and CLOTHES THAT I'M GETTING RID OF! Miracle, huh Mom? Me giving away clothes? And quite a lot of them, too! Here's what it looks like right now, and once I get more on my walls, I'll take more pictures (: I also did ALL of my laundry, folded it and put it away, AND!!!! I registered for Math 1010 and Biology 1010 in the fall at UVU! Finally going back to school! The classes are from 5:00p-8:15p on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so not too bad! Plus, I heard Biology is going to kick my butt, which I'm not too excited about :/ But I'm just happy to be back in school! I just have to find a way to pay for it now?

And tonight.. BACKSTREET BOYS CONCERT!!!!! With Carly, Holly, Jori, and Megan!! I have the whole day off of work to prep for it (:

Julie & Julia

Seeing as I'm watching Julie & Julia right now, I would feel it quite inappropriate if I didn't write a blog post. I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! And I love Amy Adams (: She is just so cute.

Anyways, I'm quite proud of myself for finally finding something that I'm good at... SLACK LINING!! My good friend Reece Hopkins taught me how to slack line last year* and I quickly became addicted! Luckily, I have quite the amazing sister and she decided to get me my very own slack line for my birthday! I didn't learn how to set it up by myself until a few weeks ago, but I got Carly addicted, and now we go at least 3 times a week! And she even bought her own!! Anyways, with all of the practice, we're getting very good at it! And I'm realizing that I do better under pressure, when there's a whole group of strangers watching me!! Or when Carly records me!

I love this (:

*(P.S. at the bottom of that blog post, I said that someday I'd be able to walk all the way across without anyone's help... THAT TIME HAS COME!)

Jealous much?!

As previously mentioned, I love The Bachelorette! And since it tricked me yesterday, I watched it today, and on one of the dates, they got to go on top of a roof of some huge building in New York AND JOSHUA RADIN WAS THERE TO PLAY FOR JUST THEM!!!!! I'M SO IN LOVE WITH HIM, IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY!! So, if you're looking for some good music, go to and make a station for Joshua Radin.. Oh, heaven.

Man.. I'm so jealous.

Time to vent.

I'm kinda sad that I stopped blogging for such a long time. But alas, here I am (:

I just want to say, people need to stick to their word. Don't tell me you're going to do something, just to blow me off. If you say you're going to be ready at 8:30, I'm expecting you to be ready at 8:30. If you tell me we're going to hang out, that's what I'm looking forward to.

The Bachelorette: If you're going to decide to come on at 7 instead of 8 randomly, LET ME KNOW! Darn-it.

What an eventful -begining of summer- I've had (:

New roommates, new adventures, new (almost) brother-in-law. He only has 8 MONTHS LEFT!! Which yes, the past 16 months have gone by pretty fast, and most of you would say "HOLY CRAP!! THAT'S SO SOON THAT HE'S COMING HOME!" But let me just tell you.. IT CAN'T COME SOON ENOUGH!! He likes to say that I'm the trunkee-est person he's ever met.. haha but I'd rather it be me than him.

Jumping to another situation.. and yes it's okay that I'm doing this.. How do you get a boy to like you that seems to just look past you? And why the freak are there no guys in Provo that have enough balls to ask me out? (Pardon my language.) I'm quite sick of it. No, maybe we're not going to get married, but don't you even want to start to get to know me? Even a little bit? Am I honestly that weird that you won't even take a few hours to try and get to know me? ALSO, why the heck do guys here feel it appropriate to swear and watch rated R movies?!?!? Do they not realize that it's SUPER SUPER unattractive when they do said things?

It's 1:04am, and I have to be at work at 8:30.. can someone tell me why I'm awake right now? *I just remembered.. It's because I took a 3 and a half hour nap today... STUPID!*

I just watched Armored, and I heard it was going to be so intense and I probably shouldn't watch it alone. So I've had it for almost 2 weeks now (via Netflix) waiting for someone to watch it with me, and when that failed, I finally watched it by myself today. And, honestly, it wasn't even that good. Okay, that's a little harsh. It was good, I just think I was expecting more? And it was only an hour and a half long! So short!

The Last Song is in the dollar theater now (:

I'M GOING TO THE BACKSTREET BOYS CONCERT ON JUNE 23RD!! And not that I'm counting or anything, but that's in 10 days!!!

John Mayer is on August 31st.


I'm an avid watcher of the Bachelor / Bachelorette since last season with Jake, and it's on again tomorrow, AND I'M SO EXCITED!

Megan and I went to a Real Salt Lake game last week, and we had STELLAR seats!! 7 rows back, to the right, of one of the goals!! And soccer players are little babies. Entertaining to watch, but really, grow up and get up.

I'm all over the place with this post. All in all, I'm having the time of my life here in Provo. I'm so happy with how things are turning out, and how the future is going to get even better!

Love, Shaylin.

I love shoes.

I have glasses now!

Cute little Manini (: Jonathan and I are proud parents!!

Yes, that's easter egg dye on my face.. It was a dare! And I got three bags of Jelly beans from it!

The Oh-So-Wonderful color festival!

I have a scooter.

I love Holly and Carly

I'm sorry to admit it, but I've put on a few extra pounds :/

I've bought 2 pairs of Toms.. and I love them (:
