It's a beautiful life

I woke up the other night singing the song "beautiful life" by ace of base in my head. I figure the lyrics are kind of fitting with my mood. Here are the versus that best fit and of course the chorus.

You can do what you want just seize the day
What you're doing tomorrow's gonna come your way
Don't you ever consider
givin' up, you will find, oooh

It's a beautiful life, oh oh ooo
It's a beautiful life, oh oh ooo
It's a beautiful life, oh oh ooo
I just wanna be here beside you
stay until the break of dawn

Take a walk in the park when you feel
There's so many things there
that's gonna
lift you up
See the nature in bloom a laughing child
Such a
dream, oooh

It's a beautiful life, oh oh ooo
It's a beautiful life, oh oh ooo
It's a beautiful life, oh oh ooo
I just wanna be here beside you
I just wanna be here beside you
stay until the break of dawn
This last week of has been pretty great. I went on a blind date which can be sketchy but turned out awesome. We went bike riding and hiking and played cards. Then we got together again and went sket shooting, to the golfing range, and beat his parents and rook. We basically plan on hanging out everyday till we go to school.
I also hiked summit again with a new record time of 4 hours and then went tubing that same day. I was wiped out.
I went to whoop up last night with Chris Hartley. We watched the monster truck races, the magician who i swear really isn't magic but was more of just a funny guy, and then the fire works.
Last but not least my painting is getting so much closer to being done. Somehow i need to find time to finish it, pack for school, go to work, hang with carson and hike chief mountain in four days. It seems near impossible. Oh well. I'll try.

Can't forget Oregon/seattle

Oh wait. I do have something to blog about. my road trip to OREGON AND SEATTLE!
I bummed a ride with megan hartley. Only the coolest girl ever. Her sister came as well, but all she did was sleep :) It was a really great trip I was in need of a little vacation from the stressful month of July. Megan was going to oregon for a friend from schools homecoming. In oregon we went to the saturday market, played volleyball, ate a lot of good food, and played cards.

Then we headed up to seattle to visit megans other friend (she is obviously quite popular) there we went to the waterfront, pike's place market and saw people throw fish around and saw the worlds first starbucks. We went and saw the temple, picked huckleberrys (they grow like weeds there) and made a stop motion video. It's tougher then one might think. We spent like 2 hours making a one minute show. Then we drove home. But I'd have to say some of the best time was spent in the car. I had a lot of fun with megan and her sister and I'm so glad I went.


My camera is broken... There for I won't be uploading any pictures for awhile which probably means I won't be blogging for awhile. Because I never have much to blog about if I don't have pictures. It makes me so sad.

Well there are a few things I can say that don't need pictures.
1. I go back to school in 2 weeks after a year. CRAZY
2. My sister Adria has a baby in her belly.
3. This has been one of the coldest summers ever. But despite that it's been one of the best.
4. I got to spend a few days with my best friend, Kimber Leavitt.
5. I love my life right now.

So in the next few weeks I have 11 weddings to go to. ELEVEN! People are getting married like it's going out of style. So I'm dedicating this post to my dear friend Karli Low. who is just following the crowd and getting married. But at least she is being unique and getting married on a thursday. Way to set yourself apart.

Well I love karli low. I think I've even written a post about her before. That's how much I love her. I've been friends with her since about the 5th grade when I didn't even really know her but I think she took pity on me when she got back from mexico and invited me to her house for her getting home party. I was one of three friends she got to invite. How honored did I feel? So honored. She probably regrets that now cause she is stuck being my Best friend forever. Tough luck.
Karli and I have lots of great memories together. most that no one else would understand or even think they are funny. But because I know she reads my blog I will retell some of them so at least she can laugh as she remembers.

♥ Cadbury mini eggs
♥ licking eachother's eyeballs
♥ Swinging on her hammock
♥ Raiding her food storage
♥ Salt and vinegar chips
♥ Exercising downstairs in short shorts and thinking it was devin and tim at the bottom of the hill and running to greet them, only to find out it wasn't.
♥ The way Logan Orr is the founder of our club name.
♥ Having about 3 different ways of laughing.
♥ Claudia buckethead
♥ Hiking bertha and doing acro yoga at the lake
♥ Going Mudding on shrimp road
♥ Going to her farm in the expo and watching scary movies while eating DQ ice cream and cereal
♥ The rainy day the boys let us put on their make up.
♥ Moonlight madness
♥ The snow day at Jennica's where we became super models from all across the globe. "I like to make a pizza"
♥ Hiking up chief mountain. Eating lunch on a flat rock, mocking daddy beaz and his gummy sack, and after many failed attempts hitting a golf ball from the top

Well I think that's enough for now. Karli if you are reading this and want to add any, feel free and I'll update the blog post. I love you and can't wait for your special day. I'm so glad I'm going to be able to celebrate with you and I wish you and garrett all the happiness in the world.

akamini ridge walk.

Last wednesday I hiked Akamini ridge with 5 wonderful girls. We had a great time. The one thing i like about hiking with girls is that I feel free to go at whatever pace I want, and take as many breaks as I want. Especially picture breaks which there was a lot of. But there are benefits to having boys like, if a path looks scary they test it first. If there are bears they have to sacrifice themselves and protect us. I feel they have a better sense of direction. If I or any other girl got hurt their boy scout skills kick in as well as their muscles and they could carry my down the mountain. Anyway here are some pictures from our many picture breaks.
