day 13

A letter to someone who has hurt you recently...

Well, because I can't think of an instance where someone has hurt me recently, I will write a letter to someone who was really frustrating...

Dear Crazy mother of the bride that I helped yesterday,

Your daughter wants a mermaid dress, not a ballgown. She wants to look sultry, not princessy. I know this because she told me while you were gone. Let her wear what she wants...it is her day after all. You have already had your wedding day and I'm sure it was fabulous...now let your cute daughter have her own wedding day. It is extremely rude to say the things you did yesterday and you can't bash on EVERY SINGLE DRESS she comes out in. We are all very certain on which one is your favorite...you don't have to look in disgust on everything your daughter likes. We KNOW you think the ballgown is exquisite. We get it, ok? Please stop calling the mermaid dresses "K-Mart" dresses...they are not. And please stop telling your daughter she looks sickly or pastey in her favorite mermaid dress. And please stop telling your daughter that "those other dresses" make her boobs look awful and that they do absolutely nothing for her figure. Let her pick her own dang dress, ok?!


ps. and when you tell her that YOUR favorite is the dress she will be purchasing because she's the princess and it's "all about her"...we all know you're lying. the end.


day 12

How you found out about Blogger and why you have one...

I found out about Blogger...gosh I can't even remember how many years ago. When my dad's side of the family decided to start a family blog. I never really got into blogging until just a year and a half ago.

I finally decided to start my own blog to keep my friends and family updated on what goes on around here...but mainly because I am an awful journal keeper. And I mean AWFUL. This blog is sort of my way of keeping a journal and keeping track of the good, the bad, and the ugly...and the freaking hilarious! :)

Until next time...



day 11

Another picture of you and your friends...

Well because I don't have a picture of all of my friends, and last time I put a million pictures up, I'm just going to put a picture of me and my very best friend...



11:00 pm


Should write....paper





I give in.
Procrastination is a beast.




I've been thinking a lot lately...not like you think though...

Pretty sure that almost every thought that has and is going through my head is about something like this...

Apartment hunting

On and on and on. No joke. Weddings are ALL I can think about. I'm sure it's driving Chris, my family, and friends bonkers but it has consumed my entire life. I have tried to keep it all away from the blog and have now failed. Ha, sorry to bring this all to you too, internet. What can I say? I'm tyring to plan what will be the best day of my entire life, Chris's life, our lives. I guess in the end all that matters is the fact that I will be able to spend the rest of my life, the rest of eternity, with the man I love, my best friend, and I cannot wait.


ps. don't mind the sappiness, it brings us closer. love you all. (seriously though)


ophiucus say what?

Major debate going on people. If you haven't heard...there is talk of a new Zodiac sign. (gasp!)

The new sign, Ophiucus, is apparently said to fall between November 30th and December 17th and therefore pushes the dates of all other Zodiac signs around. (double gasp!)

The world has gone crazy about their beloved Zodiac tatoos (bad idea in the first place) and that the sign with which they have identifed themselves for their whole lives has suddenly been switched!

You're saying I am no longer enthusiastic, lucky, positive, or well liked?! I am now flamboyant, a good architect, and a seeker of wisdom?! GAH! Who am I?!


This just in, people...

According to CNN...as of January 13, 2011 at 10:11 pm...

"No, your Zodiac sign hasn't changed."

(phew) That is a relief.
Thank you CNN for solving my identity crisis. Now I will go back to being enthusiastic, lucky. positive, and well liked.


ps. here's the proof people... http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/01/13/no-your-zodiac-sign-hasnt-changed/?hpt=C2

day 9

Something you're proud of in the past few days...

Ok, well the past few days have been a bit of a blur due to school starting up again, so how about the past few months? Deal? Mmmk...

1- I am proud of myself for working my butt off last semester (the hardest semester yet) and pulling another 4.0!

2- I am proud to have an absolutely amazing guy to call my fiance! He means the world to me and I can't wait to spend my life with him!

3- I am proud of myself for continually struggling with and breaking out of my shyness a little bit, for learning more and more about myself, what I am capable of, and the potential I can and do have.

4- I am proud of myself for moving away from home BY MYSELF and living BY MYSELF for four months. I had to step out of my comfort zone and become more independent and responsible...I am glad to be living with people again though!

What are you proud of?


ps. i am going to be better about this 30 day challenge that i started in october!! i promise!


day 8

Short term goals for this month and why...

1- Stop biting my nails...I was really good about not doing it for such a long time, but this last semester was so stressful that the habit started up again.

2- Limit the sugar intake...this is mainly for the wedding. I want my body and skin to be healthier. It's also because I eat a ridiculously large amount of sugar. I have no will power over that inherited sweet tooth.

3- Be better about reading my scriptures regularly...I've been slacking. I need to get back on top of that.

That's it for now!
