Many moons since I have bought shoes...

These little guys are at Forever 21 right now and I totally dig them for summer! Just imagine a floofy skirt with a tight shirt tucked in and big wavy blond hair. Also a slouchy brown leather bag! And I am tan in this scenario. And really skinny........and rich.........

Belated Christmas Card

This is what we were going to send out...(email out) but we decided we didn't want to mass produce the picture of us at the chubbiest point in our lives but for you my friends, we shall make an exception. Mainly because it's funny and you are either family or I consider you family and I know you love me in spite of extra rolls and double chins!

Merry Christmas!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen

I give you......MY NATURAL HAIR COLOR!!!!!

Also for your enjoyment, my sister Stacey and I wearing some dazzling outfits.

I am the mini one, (cause I'm the "baby") and Stac is just amazing. She's the sister that always took care of me even when she was a super cool high schooler. She would even take me shopping!! I know, what teenage girl actually takes time out of their lives for their little sister? My big sister does!

Final's Post...not the final one, this is just during finals....

I totally shouldn't be doing this. I should be crankin out the bajillion stories and articles and essays that I have to do before tomorrow. Yeah, so I won't be sleeping tonight. This will be my second all nighter in 2 weeks. Definitely feelin sick and I feel like someone is trying to send electrical signals through the mush that is currently my brain...I can feel stuff happening up there, but it's moooosh dang it! 


On a happier note I made this box for my adorable friend Chelse a few weeks ago. And by made I mean like, cut out magazine pictures and actually took thick cardboard stuff and glued it together and then glued the pic's on there. It was her birthday and in my head Chels is oh so California. (She's from Idaho but she just can't help it.)

Also, there was a present inside the box.

here it comes, a depressing blog post

I love this picture. The compass reminds me to stop to check where you are and to just love, which is what this post is about...

For anyone who knows me, you know I have a temper.

I know, sad.

I have been doing really good for a long time. I have been dealing with hard situations very calmly and with love. I have been letting things slide that truly don't matter. This is truly something that I have to consciously make decisions about. I decide to be nice, I decide to be chill, I decide to not be offended. 

This isn't to say that I am a mean person, I am a very nice, sensitive person. There have been times when I have hurt people, (as we all have,) by saying something thoughtless or mean, and I seriously feel like throwing up after. Sometimes I get really defensive and that's where the problem lies. That's when I get super mad.

Obviously this has something to how I was raised. I never saw anger management. If a stressful situation came up, it was yelled at and beaten until it was gone. Everything was taken as a personal jab so I learned to be constantly on my guard.

I have spent a long time trying to relearn a lot of things. If something stressful comes up, getting mad doesn't help it get done, it slows it down. And more often than not, nobody is trying to hurt you.

The Savior handled all things with love and I should always be striving to be more like Him.

So this post is a reminder to myself. Stop, think, and love. 

Because, All You Need Is Love.

Pearl Harbor Day

Many of you don't know, but I have an extreme patriotic side. I love America. I get teared up when I hear the Star-Spangled Banner or any other patriotic song, especially those that celebrate early America. 

Today is Peal Harbor Day. I don't often get mushy but I am saddened when I think of that terrible day. The world was at war and we were trying to stay out of it as long as possible. The attack on Pearl Harbor took thousands of innocent lives and directly lead to the U.S. entry of WWII which took so many more lives, including two of my Grandmother's brothers.
I think today is a day to honor those who died and those who defended us during a time of unwarranted attack. I also do not just mourn for American lives, but all lives that were lost in this terrible war. Pearl Harbor, D-Day, POW Camps, Concentration Camps, the Atom Bomb, bleh.

It makes me sick to think that one man could start such a thing and literally drag the whole world into it. I hope that I can always have the judgment to recognize evil when I see it. I hope that America will always be worthy to be defended and I hope that my children will never have to live in such times.
