A To Z: Vrooom

I'm in a blogging funk.
I can't think of anything going on in my life that starts with a V.
Wait scratch that it just hit me.
I might be going on a vacation and vacating Rexburg soon after for the rest of the summer.
I might be going to CALIFORNIA.
Eric (our old exchange student) and my brother Mitch bought a house in California and are fixing it up. Eric is still up in Canada but wants to go down to help out and doesn't like to travel alone. 
Well since I haven't found a job yet, there is no reason why I can't go.
So I might just peace out for 2 weeks, go relax on the beach, hit up the backyard pool, eat a little bowl of heaven, play with my sweet niece Jadyn, maybe hit up Disneyland because it's the happiest place in the world, and just get away from the craziness of my life right now.
I think it's sounds absolutely wonderful.
Also I haven't found a job yet, so there is nothing keeping me here, (especially since the main reason I stayed was to date Abe and well that didn't work out as planned) So now I might be leaving the end of May to go back home and find a job in Cardston or Waterton and earn some money and hike mountains.
Yah I think I'm kind of fond of my new plan.
3 fist pumps for VACATIONS.

A To Z: Underneath my Umbrella-ella

Today it's been snowing/raining ALL DAY LONG.
I will never understand Rexburg weather. 
Saturday I was outside all day long getting sun burnt.
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, beautiful!
I went biking and running outside and was dying, but I loved it.
Then after Wednesday it all went down hill. It was really windy that day.
Then yesterday was umbrella and jacket weather.
Then today was parka and snow boots weather.
Okay so not quite that dramatic, the snow is already gone, but seriously,
How can it go from 85 on tuesday to 45 today? 
It just doesn't make any sense
But really I don't know why I'm so surprised, this is typical weather for Rexburg and Canada!
I should be used to this, but I don't know if I ever will get used to it.
I know I will certainly never like it.

A TO Z. Tick Tock

Everything happens in due time.
Timing is everything.
One cannot control time.

I often wish I could press a fast forward or rewind button.
Fast forward so I could see my life in 5 years and know that I am happy and that I've gotten to places I want to be. It would make waiting for that time so much easier.
I'd like a rewind button so that I could go back in time and redo a few things.
But then again not.
I think if I would've chosen different courses what other things I would be missing out on.
I look back at the last 2 years of my life and think about all the people I wouldn't know and all the learning experiences I would've missed out on.
When I do that I'm thankful there isn't a rewind button to tempt me.
I know that with different choices there would be other people and other learning experiences but I could never rewind and record over the people I have in my life now or experiences that have shaped me into the person I am.

Everything happens at the right time.
We can wish for time to speed up but if it did would we be ready for it when it came?
Every experience I have now is preparing me for an unknown time in my life.
To speed it up would certainly lead to disaster or maybe more hardship.
But right now I'm slowly being prepared.
As much as I hate waiting and being patient, one day I know I'll be thankful.

I watched this video clip on facebook today and it kind of scared the crap out of me.
I'm not the biggest lover of sunscreen, because I love to be tan.
Everyone is more beautiful when they are tan right?
Well this clip may have convinced that being tan isn't all it's cracked up to be
My motto has always been "meh we all die from something and I figure Christ will come before I'm 50 and really won't have to worry about having cancer" (I know terrible motto but I felt okay not wearing sunscreen because of it so it did it's job)
Anyway, after watching this message and hearing about people being diagnosed when they are in their 20's and dying 5 years later freaked me out. 
That is way to young to die. I mean 50 is young to die at but at least you most likely got married had some kids and grandkids, got a job, travelled, held some sweet church callings and all that great stuff.
My odds of having a malignant melanoma mole I feel like have tripled. I've had major sun burns before I was 18. I have over 50 moles. And my family has a history of skin Cancer.
After watching this clip I checked out what malignant melanoma looked like and then inspected every mole. 
The end result is I'm sure I have skin cancer.
Okay maybe that's a little dramatic, but seriously I feel nervous and almost want to hid from the sun for the rest of my life.

A To Z: O

Inspiration struck for the letter P and I forgot that today's letter was really O.
Oh dear. I'm sure there isn't anything beginning with O to write about anyway.
Here is a picture of me in Paris with Jennica in a Giant O to make up for it..

A To Z: P

My favorite thing to do each semester is find an inspirational quote, get it printed on vinyl and then hang pictures of my fondest memories on the wall around it.
This year I made a picture frame out of the saying.
I think it's my favorite one yet.
Don't strain your eyes trying to read the saying in the picture. I'll type it out for you,
"I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
The saying is by Audrey Hepburn. I revised it a little but taking out a sentence or two that I didn't want since it was already so long. And I'm glad I did cause now it made the perfect frame for pictures of my life.

I really agree with everything that quote says.
The first sentence is the most troubling for me. I believe it's what I need to be, strong when everything else seems to be going wrong. I'm having a hard time conveying my thoughts on this matter. I think most of us feel like to cry or breakdown is a weakness. I know I do. But one of my old room mates always told me she was envious that I could do that because it showed that I was strong and not afraid to face my problems or emotions. I didn't try to hide them and act like they weren't there. She said she wished she could be that strong. Part of me understands that and part of me thinks she's wrong. Maybe it all hinges on how you handle it after. Usually after my breakdown I have a firm resolve to be more faithful and trust that the Lord knows what he's doing. So maybe it really does make you stronger when things are going wrong.

I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. One of my favorite feelings is laughing so hard my stomach hurts and I can't breathe. I love that feeling of pure happiness, where you don't remember anything that's going wrong in your life, the assignment you have due the next morning, or the stress from your job (or the fact you don't have one). All that matters is that moment and the people around who help you gain that feeling. I would take laughing over running 3 miles any day. Both might cause my stomach to hurt but only one provides sustaining happiness.

Happy girls are the prettiest. Without a doubt. We can extend this to men to and say that happy men are the most handsome.
Personally, when I'm happy I feel the most beautiful. Are we not attracted to people that are happy? Is that not why so many non members are attracted to the church? Because it's members have a beautiful glow about them. All of this is because the person is happy. They know about the plan of happiness, of eternal families, of the Atonement and much more. We cannot hide the light of Christ that radiates from us in the form of happy beautiful people.
I can't speak on behalf of the whole world but I think most of us don't often surround ourselves with depressed people because they don't make us feel our best. We tend to surround ourselves with people that smile and look happy because they make us feel happy, which I personally think makes everyone feel a little more attractive.

Lastly, I believe tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
I believe we should live each day to the fullest and try to make it our best because we only get one chance to live today. The great thing is that is if we don't have a great day today, we get another chance tomorrow. Another chance to be kind, to be of service, to forgive someone or ask for forgiveness. There is always a tomorrow.
And everyday holds the chance for a miracle. I think most miracles come in the form of tender mercies. We probably don't even notice them but there are miracles in our lives all the time.

I love this quote. I love seeing it every morning when I wake up and being reminded of a few simple things I believe that can make all the difference in my life.

A To Z: N

I need a job.
I need money.
I need to go for a run
I need to paint my nails.
I need to figure out my life.
I need to clean my room... already.
I need to spend less time on the internet.
I need to see my nieces and nephews. Miss them.
I need to be better at scripture study and prayer.
I need to go to the temple this week.
I need to play rook sometime soon.
I need G's Dairy ice cream.
I need a new computer.
I need new music.
I need fun.

Mostly I just need a job.
Today was promising though. A lot of places I went to asked for my availability date and said they were going thru resumes at that moment so I feel like that's somewhat of a good sign?
I got offered a nannying job but it's 15 mins away and only M-W. and maybe some Thursday's.
If I can stay in Rexburg I'd much rather do that, but sometimes beggars can't be choosers.
I'm just getting really bored. I mean the game show channel helps a little but that only holds me over for so many hours. The weather hasn't helped much either since it's been rainy and windy. I can't go for a big ride, a run, or a walk. Well I can but it just won't be that enjoyable.
Maybe I'll do a craft off pintrest.
Or finish reading Mockingjay.
But really I just want a job.

Opps didn't get my post in yesterday.
It was just kind of a busy and tiring day.
I moved.
Madison and I are AMAZED at how much stuff we have. It's a little ridiculous.
Our car was filled to the brim with stuff. We had 4 boxes, 2 suitcases, and a 3 drawer tupperware container full of things in storage. Our room mate let us keep 2 boxes at her room and then we still had all our kitchen items at our old apt to pack up.
I'm literally dreading going home in 4 months.
It's always interesting moving into a new apt.
I've lived in Tuscany apts for 2.5 years so I've never known anything different and loved everything about it. So moving into a new place causes me to complain about a lot of things.
Like how there aren't as many hooks in the bathroom to hang towels. The pantry isn't big enough. There aren't enough cupboards, or we need a desk with drawers.
But then there are a lot of perks. Like we have two fridges, we have more counter space and drawers in the bathroom, each room has it's own bathroom, the carpet is nice and new, and we can do laundry in our apt.
I've related it to life.
We make a move, sometimes on our own free will or sometimes because the Lord guides us to make the move.
At first we might hate a lot of the changes because we aren't used to them, but then we make do with them. We go and buy more hooks to hang our towels up on and baskets to put things in on our desk. In life we make changes in our attitude and outlook. Soon we get used to the changes and we end up loving the new move and are thankful for it.
We just have to get past the first few days which are sometimes the hardest.

Oh one another thing I love about this move. Our TV has satellite and what was pointed out to me this morning by madison, we now have the game show channel.
Yes I have been watching it all morning long. Do not judge me.

A To Z: Leaving.

Tomorrow I'm leaving for Idaho.
It's always a little bitter sweet.
My parents were gone pretty much the whole time I was home. They got back last night and I was reminded why I love being home with them.
It's kind of weird cause I fought that school to change my track to I could be home for the summer and now I'm willingly going back.
I guess the difference is is that I won't have to spend a miserable fall all alone in Cardston and I'll also get to enjoy the summer without school work on my mind.
I just love summer's at home though.
The mountains.
The late night rook games.
Kimball river.
Raspberry and strawberry picking.
Mowing the lawn (I honestly enjoy this)
Suntanning on the garage.
High School Friends.
Making new friends.

Also I need some luck.
I don't have a job in Rexburg yet.
What if I don't get a job?
That'll be miserable.
And some punks broke into our APT's storage unit and rummaged around in some boxes.
What if they stole some of my stuff?
I don't really have anything that valuable but there are things that are irreplaceable.
Like my paintings.
I'll be devastated.

Good bye Canada. Until next time.

A To Z: KillJoys

KILLJOY. This word refers to someone deliberately spoiling your joy, but my joy is often ruined by people unknowingly spoiling it and sometimes my joy is just ruined because that's life.
For example:
* Leftovers- You think about how you want that leftover pizza in the fridge when you get home, only to discover once home someone else had the same idea and ate it all! Joy gone.
* Going to a vending machine and the one item you want is sold out, or the machine eats your money and you are left with just a growling tummy.
* Finding an article of clothing that you LOVE but just need in a different size, much to your chagrin they have an abundance of every size but the one you need.
* Putting your favorite article of clothing in the dryer by accident to find that it did indeed, shrink and not longer fits.
* Painting your nails and waiting for them to dry only to accidently bump it on something and have to redo that finger. Or having them chip hours after painting them.
* This happens all the time at church dinners. There is a bowl of buns and you can't wait to butter one up and eat it. But of course the butter is as hard as a brick and doesn't spread on your bun making it less enjoyable. Am I right or am I right?
* Going to the grocery store in a baggy t-shirt, sweats, ponytail, and not a stitch of make-up, only to run into your crush or someone cute from your class.
* Grumpy, negative people that can only keep complaining about the same thing.
* Going to the movies and finding out the one show you wanted to see is SOLD OUT.
* Thinking you have the whole Apt. to yourself only to find out one of your room mates is skipping class or came home early.
* Waking up in the morning excited to go for a run only to open the windows and see snow.
*Buying an item and returned a few days later to find that item is now on sale.

Alright I know these are all first world problems but seriously, they kill my joy.

A To Z: Junkie

Confession: I'm a JUNKIE. A Game show Junkie that is.
I know maybe you think I'm lame.
1. For being a game show junkie (I'm told I'm already like a 75 year old woman)
2. for actually trying to pass this off as my J letter.
But I honestly couldn't really think of much else to do for J.
Today I was watching the price is right and let me tell you I would've won the show case showdown if I was up there. That's how much of a Junkie I am.
This guys show case was a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Boreno (some place around Indonesia) and Austrailia.
How much did he bid? Only a measly 18000 dollars.
A Flight to Australia is well over 1000 dollars never mind that each trip is for a guest as well and you are staying in a big fancy hotel and get to go on all these expeditions. 18000 is not
going to cut.
I guessed it would be 29000. Seriously.
The price was 29489 (or something in that range)
I would've been going to all those amazing places.
One day maybe I'll hear these words "Chanel Beazer Come one down! You're the next contestant on the price is right!"
Although this would be 10 times better if Bob Barker was still the host. Drew Carey just don't do it for me.
P.S. One of my last room mates was on the price is right and won her show case. I feel like I'm cooler just because I know her.
Next I watched Family Feud which has been a favorite in my house ever since I can remember.
When I'm at home everyone knows that at noon I watch family feud. You will give up your possession of the TV, because that is my time.
It's days like today where I miss the game show channel.
The newlywed game, family feud, pyramid, hollywood squares, password match game.. you name it I Watched it.
Especially the oldies.
The day I realized that Richard Dawson didn't host Family Feud anymore I thought I would die.
I'm pretty sure every girl born in the 70's had to have a crush on him. How could you not?! (Creepy? maybe a little)
Anyway point is that one TV channel must have in my future hom will be the game show channel, because I'm a Junkie. Especially if they are reruns from the 70's.

A to Z: I.I.I.I.I

What a tricky letter.
Since this blog is about me I'm going to tell you about "I"
Clever right? My sister Madison can be a genius sometimes, even if it is improper grammar.
Jennica tagged me in the eleven questions/eleven tags thing so here are my questions to answer.
1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I was away from home, my parents, and oldest sister didn't have facebook and always wanted me to update them on my life. Facebook was an easy way to share my life since I put pictures up there, so I decided a blog would be nice so they could see what I was up to.
2. Favorite store?
I really don't have one. I don't have a store must have and I'm not very classy. I don't like expensive clothes. I mostly just enjoy going to bluenotes, stitches, forever 21, or charlotte russe.
3. What cheers you up on a crappy day?
I think we could just refer to this post.
4. Where do you see yourself in five years?
I don't like this question. If you would've asked me this same question 5 years ago nothing I had thought would've been right. So maybe I'll try some reverse psychology. I don't see myself married, with a few kids, graduated from university, being a stay home mom and cooking amazing meals.
5. Chocolate or Vanilla?
Hands down Vanilla. Chocolate is to over bearing, mostly in ice cream. It'll over power anything else you put in it. Whereas vanilla just compliments everything.
6. Spring Must Have?
Well I think I really like colored pants. So I would enjoy some coral/salmon colored pants or shorts since it's getting closer to summer.
7. All time favorite move?
I love romantic comedies. What happens and vegas and how to lose a guy in 10 days are always my favorites. I can watch them anytime.
8. Who/What inspires you?
Madison. Because she does exactly what she believes. She doesn't change for anyone and stands by her values. I don't worry about her because I know she'll always to the right thing and will always keep the Lord's commandments. (Now don't get me wrong I do to but she is so faithful and strong and I just admire her)
9. Random fact about yourself?
I hate fluffy pillows. Hate Hate Hate. Last time I slept at a hotel I threw all the pillows off my bed and just slept on my arm. Anything to fluffy and I can't sleep and just wake up with a headache and sore neck.
10. Dream travel spot?
India/egypt. I know there is nothing really romantic and relaxing about this but it would be an adventure. I want to do yoga on top of a mountain in India with a real yoga master. I want to go to orphanages and spend time with beautiful children. I want to tour the pyramids and go on an archaeological dig. So much more exciting then sipping virgin pina colada's watching the tide come in.
11. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
To be more faithful and patient.

Well there you go eleven things you might have never known about "I"
And I'm not going to tag anyone else. I feel like you can just do this if you want. You don't need to be tagged to talk about yourself on your own blog.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012


Ahh yes today is the letter "H" the one I've been waiting for.
Yesterday I watched the movie The Help for the first time.
It really caused me to wonder what I would've been like 50 years ago.
Would I have been Miss Hilly Holbrook or more like Skeeter Phelen?
I hope that I would be like Skeeter, but it's really hard to say what you would do when you were never raised in that time period.
Next I'm reading The Hunger Games.
I've finally caved.
I put off reading them because I was so disappointed in the twilight books and movies.
Let's face it. Stephanie Myers is not a great Author, Robert Pattinson is not attractive, and Kristen Stewart cannot act. Sorry, but those are the cold hard facts.
I'm only 4 chapters into Hunger Games but I think I'm really going to like it.
And I've only heard good things about the movie, so my fingers are crossed.

On a less superficial level two "H" words I've been thinking a lot about are hope and happiness.
Today's definition of hope is one of uncertainty, like we hope the person recovers. We don't know for sure, it's just a feeling of expectation for something.
When you read about hope in the scriptures it's sure, unwavering, and active.
We have a firm or lively hope.
We have hope that if we trust in God and his promises he'll reward us with blessings. Sure, unwavering, and active hope has been hard for me lately. I find myself wandering in uncertainty hoping that things will work out and I'll be happy. I don't want to hope for happiness. I want to know there will be happiness. I want to act and find that happiness that I know is out there. Which turns back to trust in God and his promises. I have hope in them and know that God keeps his promises if I keep mine.

Lastly, check out my weekly horoscope.
If you only knew everything that was going on in my life right now you'd see how fitting this was.
Oh and just remember "You is Kind, you is Smart, you is Important!"

A To Z: G?

The Whole day I was thinking my letter was H. And I had lots of H words to write about.
Sure I can save it for tomorrow BUT now I don't know what to write about. Hmm...
Maybe games?
I played rook with the Hills last night and well we'll have to have a tie breaker since me and Kaitland killed her parents once and then they barely beat us the next time.
Maybe gum?
I really like the extra desserts "mint chocolate chip ice cream" flavored one.
Speaking of ice cream...Maybe I should just talk about G's dairy and how much I'm going to miss it this week.
Oh hey, look at this. I've got tons of pictures of me going to G's dairy. I can remember every time and how delicious the ice cream was.

This was after a hard day and I really needed a pick me up. G's dairy did the trick
Group date. That night my room mate and I felt like we ate our weight in ice cream. My double scoop waffle cone was bigger then my head!
First day as room mates. Best day ever!
Last day as room mates. Worst day ever.
Grilled cheese and single scoop ice cream. $3, Best deal ever.

Yup I'm convinced that g's dairy is good any time. When you are sad, happy, in love, lonely, hungry, excited, celebrating, hot or cold. It hits the spot day or night.
