Brooke the Bachelorette

So I know I haven't posted in forever but I had to put this up...

My baby sister, Brooke is starting college this year! I am so excited for her and happy she'll be so close to us. Here is a picture from the obligatory going off to college photo shoot...

Anyway, Brooke's freshmen year has had a fabulous start thanks to the Dating Game. Brooke was chosen to be the "bachelorette" in the BYU New Student Orientation version of the game. Naturally, I headed over to the Wilk to witness it myself.

Needless to say, it was awesome. Justin wins best bro-in-law (sorry Brett) for capturing the event.

The MC (who was acting as Harry Potter's Snape for some unknown reason...) announced a little bio about Brooke and then she walked out. So. Freaking. Beautiful. All you could see was blonde hair and golden tan skin. The boys practically ran to the stage for a chance at a date.

Pretty Brookie walking out

Throngs of freshmen

Eager boys

Brooke answered the questions...

and the sad boys had to leave if their answers didn't match hers

The pack of boys dwindles

The final five

Brooke asked questions and the boys had to make up answers on the spot. My favorite answer? For best pick up line one boys said, "I'm headed to the Celestial Kingdom wanna come?" I love BYU.

The final two

And we have a winner!

Tender moments

Can I have yo numba?

Ash, Justin, and I loved every minute of this. It was thoroughly entertaining. Brooke was like a mini celeb walking around afterwards. This weekend we are heading to Logan to watch Brooke run for BYU for her first time! So fun to have Brookie at BYU!
