(cheesy i know haha) well i hope everyone is having a splendid Sunday! here's a cute quote i found from our sweet sister Marjorie Hinckley. She was and still is an amazing lady. bah i miss her and her husband,our late & beloved Prophet, President Gordon B. Hinckley. But, I know they are in a better and happier place and are doing great things behind the veil. :) Enjoy!

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." — Marjorie Pay Hinckley

JULY?! Is That You?! Leaping Lizards!

well surprise surprise! it's that wonderfully scorching hot month we Arizonians know as JULY!!! and i am just loving every sweaty second of it! :) but i'm also shocked at how fast time flew by this past month. good googly moogly! i've been having tons of fun this summer though. last week i went to Carlsbad, California with my dearest friend Jessica and her family. & it was sooooo much fun! we stayed there for a whole week! gah it was bliss! i lovelovelove california! so i was beyond thrilled that i was able to stay there for that long. it was wonderful. we went shopping in Oceanside, San Diego, and then went to Legoland and walked through their new aquarium. We also saw Toy Story 3 [which i absolutely adored] & went to a music museum. on our last day we went to L.A. to visit her friend Cory. he took us to Venice Beach and WOW was that ridiculously fun. lots of entertaining people there! so now i'm home and back to reality. workworkwork. but it's been a eventful week back. one event of the season being that the movie Eclipse came out this week. i took my little sister to go see it & i have to say i friggin loved it! waaay better than the other ones. Fact: Taylor Lautner aka Jacob is ridiculously attractive!!! it was definitely a trial to keep my mind from wandering when i was staring at his shmokin sexy bod! my GOODNESS he is sooo doggone HOTT! i was literally drooling! haha so anyway! Yesterday was INDEPENDENCE DAAAY! :) & boy it was a great day. gotta love the feeling of freedom! i also was happy to celebrate it with some of my family. cameron, emily, max, & jude came over on saturday and had a sleepover. that was way fun. :) we played Texas Hold Em with candy. i was surprised at how good max was at his poker face. haha so the next day on the 4th we all went swimming and morgan, nick, jacob, emily's sister ashley and her husband dallin came over too. it was such a lovely day. i am so blessed to have such a big and wonderful family. my family means everything to me. after we were done swimming, we all went over to emily's family's house and had a delicious dinner. Her dad makes thee best ribs. seriously, i'm not the biggest fan of ribs but oh my gosh these ribs were exceptional! Seriously Amazing!!! best ribs i have ever had! haaands down! after dinner, i met up with some friends and watched the fireworks show at the University of Phoenix. it was a pretty good show. it made me miss watching fireworks in utah though. someday i wanna go to Washington D.C. to celebrate the 4th. i have a feeling their fireworks show is probably one of the best. after the fireworks, jessica and i met up with more friends at In-n-Out for "midnight run". a very American way to end America's birthday. haha it was a very fun Independence Day this year. i enjoyed it. well, it's getting late and i have work in the morning. so i will update you later this month. goodbye for now!

Lunes Lunes... so good to me

Well howdy! sorry for not blogging for two weeks! Wow! i'm a horrible blogger. but hey i'm a beginner and will improve don't you worry. So these past few weeks have been busy busy. School is going well though. i'm doing amazingly well in my spanish class. Areebaaa! haha it's funny though, being in that class makes me want move to Mexico or go on a mission to a Spanish speaking country. haha & since i'm turning 21 this year its a definite possibility! hmmmm... we'll see! haha oh and p.s. i cannot believe it is already March!!! March Madness has officially started! woohoo! ah i am so excited for Spring Break and all of its wonderfulness! :) I'm planning on going to Mexico so that's a guaranteed good time. haha so what else is new...oh I've also been getting a lot of missionary mail which is rare since I don't really write missionaries. haha but my good friends from high school that are out on their missions have been writing me lately and I have to say I am enjoying getting & returning their emails. I guess I forgot how fun having pen pals is. But yeah, don't worry readers, i don't have a missionary that I'm waiting for. not my style. haha Well other than all of that fun stuff, I've just been working at Bella and working out everyday. I've now lost 25 pounds! :) can i get a woot woot?! haha ah I cannot stress how much happier I am. i love it. oh & i attended two beautiful wedding receptions. i love going to weddings. even though i feel like i stick out like a sore thumb as a single 20 year old mormon woman. haha all these single mormon ladies are dropping like flies. haha but whatev. Hakuna Matata. my time will come. just gotta be patient. So in other news, I've finally started rearranging my room! YAAAY! haha i love doing interior decorating projects. We got my zebra carpet stretched and cleaned today so it looks lovely now. woop woop. so we've been moving around my furniture & it's crazy how much bigger my room looks now since I moved my bed. But yeah, so this week I'm going to Walmart to buy myself a Flat screen TV. & I'm going to look around for some chairs or a small sofa. I am sooo beyond excited! :) (if anyone knows of any nice brands of flat screens let me know because i am sort of clueless in that department) oh & speaking of interior decorating projects, haha, i got to help my friend Jessica paint her apartment this weekend! it was a lot of fun and turned out great! So what else is new...hmm.. oh right! Hoy! Today was a great monday! I got to babysit my adorable baby nephew Jude this morning! (The adorable little boy in the picture) I cannot believe how big he is getting! It's nuts! He is so much fun. I enjoyed playing with him. His favorite thing to do right now is chuck things as hard as he can. & it's funny watching him do it because he thinks its hilarious. haha he's so precious. & super active! He kept crawling around and saying "Dadadada" haha i adore that child. & I am sooo excited because my brother Cam and his wife Emily (Jude's parents) are expecting a daughter at the end of the summer! I'm going to have another niece!!! I am absolutely thrilled! :) i can't wait! i love shopping for babies! haha that might sound weird to you but it's fun to me! i was born with a love for shopping.

My Very First Blog Post... WOO HOO!

Well hello blogging world! & Happy Valentine's Day! Or, for all my fellow singles out there, Happy Singles Awareness Day! haha but most importantly: Today is Arizona's 98th Birthday! Yeah AZ! & I must say that it is a wonderful day in this spectacular state! Perfect weather and now i'm gazing outside at another typical gorgeous Arizona sunset. Ahhh wonderful. I'm also watching the movie "Julie & Julia" with my little sister and I must say I am loving it. :) One of my New Year's resolutions is to attain cooking skills, since all I really know how to cook is macaroni and spaghetti. So, if anyone out there has any delicious recipes out there, please do not hesitate to send them my way.
Oh! & I am very pleased to announce that I have already accomplished one of my other New Year's Resolutions! I have lost 20 POUNDS! Do you hear me?! TWENTY! & I'm not exaggerating at all! Literally 20 pounds have disappeared from my body! I'm not going to lie, I am very proud of myself. I feel great! Happier & Healthier! I am eating healthier too. It's fantastic! I'll put pictures up soon. :)
Hmm so what else is new in my life? Let's see... I am a Sophomore in college, going to school full time at MCC, and am leaning towards getting a degree in Education or Psychology to become a teacher or a counselor. Last year, I had the opportunity to do service learning with my cousin Morgan who is a 3rd grade teacher and a 2nd grade teacher from the elementary school I attended. I absolutely loved it. So, this semester I am taking four classes: Sociology, Public Speaking, Art Humanities, & Spanish! I am loving all of them so far. My professors are great. My favorite right now is my Art class. It makes me want to travel so badly. Oh, if only traveling and studying abroad wasn't so ridiculously expensive... which brings me to my next subject: my job.
I work every day, except for Sundays, at a women's clothing boutique called "Bella Blue". I really enjoy working there and I adore my boss. The clothes & accessories we sell there are beyond cute. So if you are into fabulous clothes and fun accessories, then you should definitely come check it out (you can get the address if you go to our facebook page).
So back to the fact that today is Valentine's Day... meh... Although I do not have a Valentine this year, and haven't had much experience with that *blissful* thing called "love", I am still a happy & optimistic single woman. I know someday soon I will meet that man that I will be with for time and all eternity. I just need to be patient.
Well bloggers, I am now going to end my very first ridiculously long blog post/novel with one of my favorite quotes from this movie. And seeing as how it is Valentine's Day, I think it is a perfectly appropriate quote...

"You are the butter to my bread and the breath to my life."

Ah, Sooo cute! I can't wait until I meet someone that will say cute things like that to me. :) haha ok i'm done now. xoxo <3
