My Mission!

I have been called to serve in the Ohio Cleveland Mission with the Kirtland Church History Sights! I am very excited about this! Let me start with a story... About two weeks ago my friend Kara Leigh stood on her fire place to open her mission call. We were all very excited and knew she would be preparing to leave on Feb. 4th. Yesterday I stood on the same fire place and opened my call. We opened the EXACT same call. We will both be serving in Cleveland with the church history sights, leaving on Feb. 4th! Needless to say there was a lot of screaming going on in the home when I read the mom couldn't hear anything over the phone. So, nobody guessed Cleveland so NOBODY will be getting my eternal praise and adoration ;) Love you all!

Where in the World????

Now that the mission is official and I am anxiously awaiting the call I thought I should get y'alls opinions on where you think I will be going...So if you would like, just reply to this post with your guess/revelation/inspiration/ epiphany on where in the world you think I will be going to serve the Lord. I will add your name to "the list" that will be present at the official opening sight. The winner will get my eternal praise and adoration! Can't wait to see what you will come up with ;) Love you all!

THE BIG 21!!!

I just love these girls!! I didn't want to spend my 21st b-day any other way but with them!

Pulling the typical Chinese pose! The wall behind us is actually sliding screen doors that would block us into our own little room!

At the restaurant... it was awesome and our waiter Stuart was hot!!! I got a little Happy Birthday kiss on the check from him!

Don't worry...Jillyn and I are not a couple even though we might look like it! The group: Katelin, Kristen, Jessica P, Kara, Jessica H, Aubree, Jillyn, and ME!!!

The beautiful Timp temple! Just had to add that on!

Catch up time...

I went home for a week just a little while ago to visit my sister Ashlee and her family. This was my little buddy the whole time I was there. He must get left out by the twins cause he was dying for a partner. Any time I would even move he would yell in desperation to me, "Abbey WAIT!!!" He loves giving me kisses... at least 3 every minute. He just melts my heart :)


Ashlee and Teage at the discovery center we took the kids to. They had a stage with dance shoes and costumes...Teage only liked the costumes.

Ashlee and Bostyn in the Tiki hut!

Teagie and I at the ward Halloween Party...I didn't have a very good costume!

Their real Halloween costumes as Belle and Sleeping Beauty!

Bailey dressed up in the play clothes as "The Bride Sleeping Beauty" and Bostyn was "Tink"!

Teage was the "Hulk" for Halloween. He was so hyper the entire night! Needless to say...It was awesome!

This is him showing me his muscles!

My Man dressed up as Elmo. Isn't he so cute?

We went for a little "hike"; it's mainly a small walk where Ashlee and I beg them to hold still so we can take their picture.

Bostyn licking off the frosting on her cupcake...and still looking gorgeous as she does it!

This the typical "Harmon Girl" face. Can't you just see Ashlee, Ali, and me in this picture? I guess technically Ashlee is in the background in this picture but what I meant was can you see us in Bailey's face :)

Halloween at work. My 2 supervisors Katelin and Christie. We rock!

My friend Jessica and I went to this crazy house on Halloween. It was decorated to the max!

Jessica and me in front of the hurst (however you spell it) was pretty spooky!

I know, I costume is freakin awesome! This was one of my dance costumes when I was about 6 years old and I have no idea how it still fits me!

Yes my friend Todd really did wear that to work! He just got of his mission in Finland so he was laughing so hard at how white his legs are!

This is the Murder Mystery Party that my friend Jessica put on the day after Halloween. I, ironically, was given the "Head Cheerleader" part. I was so good at it that I was voted for the "Best Performance" of the night! I started to annoy myself...

One of my best friends and date Mitchy was the Student Body President!

I just wanted everyone to know that my mission papers are officially in!!! My goal was to have them in by my b-day and that dream has come true. So, you will all want to be on the lookout for the next post...I will announce WHEN are where I am opening the call. Then, soon after I will be telling you all where in the world the Lord is sending me to serve him for 18 months! Thank you to everyone who has helped me make this happen. I am filled with so much love and appreciation it's incred! (ha ha that one is for you Aubz). Until then...

Why do I love my life?

One of my best friends Jessica Hobbers had her "Burf-day" party up in Park City. This is us at Fuego's where we met Jimmy who gave us a life lesson on not making your waiter put every meal on different checks ;)
David and I on our triple date with Andy, Aubree, Kelsey, and JD. We had yummy Goodwood!

Up the canyon making a bonfire! I hope y'all noticed that I dyed my hair brown ;)
Look at my little boyscout ;) None of the other boys were really helping him make the fire so he had to do it all by his lone-some.
Andy, Aubz, David, and I trying to stay warm.
My friend Lane and I went bowling the other night. I had to aim the ball through his legs...ironically it was my only strike of the night!!! I look like a solider because Jess took the picture after I had shot it and I was trying to look over Lane to see if I was going to hit any pins or not.
Nice form!
Lane, Me, Jessica, and Trevor (also known as Curly Sue).
I love my friends!!!

Conference Weekend...and some!

This is my new boyfriend! David are ya jealous? ;)

This is the biggest rocking chair I have ever seen!

Jillyn, Devon, and I went with a singles ward to Cornbelly's corn maze. They had all these other activities you could do while you were there. This is Devon proposing to me in the princess carriage; cause after all I am a Princess!

Aren't we just precious?

Lacey and I at the BYU vs Utah State game. Worst game I have ever been to but I loved the company!

Here is a closer one of us. Aren't we cute?

We went for a "little" ride around the neighborhood because I told him I didn't want to go riding on the Sabbath ;)

We went for a walk after Conference around the neighborhood and Ali rode her bike. She is so adorable!

David came down this past weekend and we had so much fun. On Saturday night we went out with my best friends Mike and Lacey Merkley. We went to Olive Garden and then played at their apartment. David went to church we me the next day and then we went up AF canyon. It was a really fun , but short, weekend.
We drove the Alpine loop. The mountains were so beautiful. This picture is my favorite because the mountain in the back was all yellow!
This picture was taken by the best photographer in the world... yep David! He put it on the car and timed it so no cars were driving in the background. Good work David!

Summer Fun!

This is my friend David Brown...also known as Farmer Brown ;) He just got back from his mission in Lima, Peru. We went on a date to Temple Square and this is a picture of us on the top of the Conference Center. He was kind enough to come and visit me when I was drugged up from getting my wisdom teeth out...thanks for your patience David! You are the sweetest! This is one of my best friends Kim! We work together at Platinum. We made masques for our corporate party and then sang to our boss the song from Phantom of the Opera! She is so funny!
A very bad picture of us boating at Lucky Peak. It was the only one that had all three of us though!
Some of my guy friends that were at the wedding with me! Lane, on the far left, is the one who drove my car from Boise in the wee hours of the night so we could make it David's homecoming. Thanks for saving my life Lane!
This is a close up of Kevin and I at "Jump on It". My face is all flushed because it really wears you out fast!
A couple friends and I went to this place called "Jump on It". It is just a bunch of tramps put together to make an adventure of fun! Ha ha! My friend Kevin bounced me so high in this one!
The Bride and Groom left the reception through a long line of sparklers; it was so cool! This is my friend Jessica Powell that I lived with for a while this summer. Now I am living in the Harkers basement; they were kind enough to let me invade their home until I leave on the mission!
These are my cute friends Andrew and Chana Alder. They got married in Boise, ID so a couple friends and I drove up there to show our love and party! (By the way this picture was taken after I took off my heels...)
