Icebreaker Triathlon

So it has always been a goal of mine to be able to do a triathlon. This last Saturday I finally fulfilled that goal. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but it was such a blast! I can honestly say that I loved every minute of it! It was such a challenge, but so rewarding once I crossed that finish line. I did the tri with three ladies that I work with, Sarah, Krista, and Pam! I definitely couldn't have done it without them. As I was leaving my house it was 40 degrees. I was so nervous for the cold. Luckily we dressed really warm, and the sun finally came out!
So it started with the swim. It was 300 meters. It was better then I expected it to be. I had heard tragic stories of people swimming over the top of you, so I was really nervous. An older guy would walk the in the shallow end, and then when he would try to swim in the deep part and would end up kicking me. I was so annoyed, but I finally passed him! I finished the swim in 7:02
So apparently I must have been mad at someone seeing as I am flipping them off
This is my dear sweet friend Pamela. I think she needs a bigger helmet what do you think? Seeing as she left the tag on I am sure she can still return it
The bike was my favorite part. It was 12 miles, and I enjoyed every minute of it!! It sounds weird, but I couldn't stop smiling. I just kept telling myself to push it just a little harder.
I finished the bike in 52 minutes. I was definitely slow, but for only being on a bike twice I felt like I did pretty good!

Me and Pam starting our run. I am not going to lie the run was extremely hard. My legs did not want to work. I almost felt like I was not moving. Finally after the first mile they felt great, and I was able to kick it in gear.
Cute little E cheering me on
I was finally at the finish line. So I finished strong, and sprinted it to the end! I finished the run in 28 minutes.
I never thought that I would ever be able to do a triathlon, but I can now say that I can. I learned that I can do anything as long as I put my mind to it!! It is so rewarding crossing that finish line knowing that I had trained so hard, and I did it!! All of the hard work paid off! My final time was 1:35. I have room for improvement, but am so happy that I finished!

I am so grateful for my friends and family who came to support me. My great parents, Easton, Gege and Pop, and Linds. I am also grateful for my grandpa and for taking such great pictures so that I could remember this.
Pam, me, Krista, and Sarah
Thanks girls for the great day, and for pushing me to do hard things!! Sure do love you!!

Yogurt Land

For any of you who haven't heard of Yogurt Land it is by far the most amazing frozen yogurt you will ever eat!! It is seriously to die for! It just barely opened up in Orem like five minutes away from my apartment. I am in some serious trouble! Liz has already been there 3 times in the last 4 days and one of the days was Sunday so she had to miss out one day. We will definitely keep them in business. Kels, Linds, Liz, and Me (yes that is me with the dark hair, I still don't recognize myself) So of course there is never a dull moment when we are together. Tonight definitely made the top ten funny moments.... So Linds was going to town with her frozen yogurt. She finished and wanted to go get seconds. Well instead of getting seconds she decided to get every last bit she could in her cup. So she literally was making out with her cup. As you can see by the pictures. She sat and licked every part of the cup until there literally was nothing left. Well we are all laughing so stinkin hard, but we definitely weren't the only ones laughing. Linds all of a sudden looked over and said, "Oh my gosh they are all watching me" there were two boys looking at her, one was laughing so hard he was crying, and the other one looked disgusted! So now we are all pretty much crying. So Linds puts her sweatshirt over her head, grabs her keys, and walks to her car while we just sit and laugh!

So as you can tell Yogurt Land is the new place to be.... It is DELICIOUS, can be very entertaining, and you all should try it!!!

Funny Story About Cute Little E

My mom told me the funniest story today that I just have to share.... So Jensen is always teasing Easton constantly. So they were on there way to church and Jensen called Easton a weenie! So Easton turns to J and said," WELL AT LEAST I HAVE ONE" ha ha yes this is my 8 year old little brother. Ah it doesn't get better then that! I was literally laughing my guts out when my mom told me that! J better watch out because Easton is already quick with the come backs, and will be bigger then him before we know it!

The Best Luck Ever

So let's just say that I am just the luckiest girl ever, JUST KIDDING!! I probably have thee worst luck well this last week at least. So I was on my way to the gym last Saturday and I was in a hurry of course, and totally just ran a stop sign. There was nobody there, and it was so early. Well just my luck I totally get pulled over. I haven't gotten a ticket in like two years. I was shaking so dang bad I could hardly get my license out. Luckily he was so nice. Well I guess kind of nice cuz he still gave me a dang ticket... Well then Monday rolls around and I was just finishing piano, and going to go to the movie so I was hurring again to get there and totally didn't realize how fast I was going, and got pulled over again. I was so embarrassed! So I was trying to explain to the cop that I just got pulled over, but was totally not making any sense finally he was like can I just have your license. So I got another FREAKIN TICKET!! Aren't I awesome or what? I think I broke some record or something. So everybody watch out the COPS ARE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR JORDYN!!

The New Do

So today I did something that I would never ever ever do!! I died my hair BROWN!!! My sister was getting her hair done and I looked in the mirror at my roots, and was so annoyed that you could already see them. So my mom was just going to put some more blonde in. I kept saying that I needed a change. Something crazy and different. I mean really I am the only one who has to like it right now. I don't have to worry about a husband freaking out, or trying to impress a boyfriend! So Shea was like why don't you just color it brown. And so I did that exact thing. I am not a blonde anymore (well at least my hair isn't blonde. I am sure I will continue to have many blonde moments).... I am now a brunette! I was shocked when I first looked into the mirror, but it is starting to grow on me, and I am loving the new ME


(So this picture was taken right after we went boating in the 4th grade, ha gotta love it)
So I just wanted to give a shout out to my amazing friend Katrina.... We grew up right next to each other, and did everything together! She is now married, and lives in Cedar so we hardly ever see each other. Her Sister got married yesterday so we got to see each other and catch up on old times. We laughed, cried, laughed some more, and even cried some more. Even after not seeing each other for quite some time we still seem to catch up where we left. She has always been such an amazing friend and I truly am so grateful for her, and for always being there for me! Sure do love you Katrina!!

My New Love

I have always wanted to be a better swimmer, and I am finally going to complete that goal. For the past couple of months I have been going to swim laps with my Dad every Tuesday night. I didn't think that I would enjoy it as much as I do, but let's just say I love it! It is something that I feel like I am constantly progressing at. The first day we went to swim I could only swim one lap before I had to stop and breathe, and now I am swimming 300 meters. I hope that I can continue to progress so that I will be able to do an Olympic Triathlon in August which is a mile swim. I know that as long as I do my best and work as hard as I can I will be able to reach that goal! I am grateful for my dad, and for him encouraging me to swim with him. We have so much fun! It truly has helped our relationship, and I love him for it!

Okay so I am sad to admit but I have become obsessed with the Bachelor. It is such drama, and so cheezy, but oh how I love it! It was the season finale tonight. So Lindsey knew somebody who knew crazy Michelle so she told us all that Chantell won. So we literally were shocked when he chose Emily. Like literally jumping up and down! I could not be happier! She is beautiful, and just such a sweetheart! I sure hope they can make it work! I was literally almost in tears when he proposed to her! Ah it just melted my heart ha! Go Brad and Emily!

Birthday Surprise for MOM

This last weekend Shea, Gege, and I decided to surprise my mom and take her for the day to celebrate her birthday. So we went to lunch at kneaders, and then to the outlets up in Park City. We had such a fun day. We laughed until we cried or until we were running to find a bathroom. I love being together with just the girls. It is always a good time to bring up all of the fun memories that we have had together and to also create more!

Me and Shea

The Birthday Girl

So funny story.... We were in a store and my mom was purchasing something and so me and gege were dancing in the front. We were doing a Monkey impersonation. Well the lady who was helping my mom asked her if we realized that they were all watching us on Camera. So my mom came and told us, and then what does she do, she does it with us! Oh how I love these two! Shea on the other hand was dying and laughter and totally embarrassed!

My mom and gege

Haha so this picture just tells you how great my grandma is. Shea and I talked her into getting on the horse. To be honest it didn't take much. She is always making us laugh, and is always such a great sport!!

Thanks for the fun day!!

What happens when you put dish soap in the DISH WASHER

As I am driving home I get this call from Linds that made me laugh so stinking hard.... So first of all Linds decided to do the dishes (that is a scary thought to begin with seeing as it is a rare occurrence). So Linds went to start the dishwasher thinking that she was all great when little did she realize that she put dish soap in it. Yes, Linds is 20 years old, and yes you would think that she would know the difference between dishwasher soap and dish soap, but apparently she was having one of those BLONDE DAYS! Like I have any room to talk though seeing as most people call them Jordy Moments because I have them so much. So anyways back to the story. Linds came back to the kitchen and there was bubbles, and water everywhere ha ha!! Oh I can just picture her face at this very moment freaking out! So she franticly opened the dishwasher to find even more bubbles. Thanks to google she got the problem solved after spending hours trying to get rid of the bubbles! Bless your heart Linds! Oh how I love you!
I came home to these sticky notes on the dishwasher!!

My cute roommate Liz had a disco party over a month ago, and I am finally putting the pictures up. Her and her Ballet friends decided to get together once a month and have a themed party. So Liz decided to go DISCO. It was a blast. We decorated or more like Liz decorated our apartment so dang cute! She is the greatest, and is always so fun to be around! I was lucky enough that she let me tag along with all of her ballet friends. We had a great night!

So Liz bought these awesome glasses that totally fit the part. Well she came home, and little did she find that they were prescription glasses ha!

Check out these awesome brownies that Liz made! Really she always goes all out which I love!

Let's be honest her outfit totally rocks!
Our cute apartment looking all DISCO
We danced the night away, ate delicious food (which totally fit the theme), played games, prank called, and just enjoyed each others company! It was a great PARTY! I truly am so grateful to have awesome roommates who are so fun to be around, and have such great standards. Each of them make me want to be a better person, and strive to do better each and every day! Life doesn't get better then that! I am one LUCKY girl, but let's be honest they are pretty lucky too that they have a freakin cool roommate like myself who is the LIFE OF THE PARTY ha ha!
