Today is a day that I am most grateful for. It is the celebration of the day of the birth of one of my best friends and she deserves a shout out...


You must know that she has seriously saved my life many times. Spiritually and mentally. She is a wonderful example of a true friend and I seriously do not even know where I would be in my life without her having been the wonderful friend and person she is. Even though she's in Hawaii and I'm here in Utah we still have an awesome friendship and we know that we are both always here for each other no matter what happens in life. 

Here are a few of my favorite times with her:

Our first time to ice skate was quite the adventure - on and off the ice!

She got to come to Utah before going out to Hawaii for school this fall. This was our late night run to Denny's. Good times! :)

For Matraca's 18th birthday we dressed up REALLY weird and crazy - took the golf cart for a spin and went to Walmart. Only with her and Erin and Matraca could something so weird and crazy be so fun. :)

Our senior party at church was fun and we just love little Miss Avery!

 Finding funky clothes in Forever 21 is always a good adventure!

 My first time to fly in any kind of airplane was pretty scary - but Savanna was by my side for it all!

Our "America's Next Top Model" shoot for our senior yearbook picture was so fun!

Girls camp is always a bittersweet thing. Through the latrines, rain, throw up, and bear scares we made some very memorable memories in the mountains of good ole New Mexico.  

 We like to try and be thuggish sometimes. Thanks to Campbell and Olson we can somewhat succeed at it by wearing their clothes and shoes. Haha!

She was not all about hiking the Y but I insisted that we do it - she was a trooper!

 Going to the lake in Texas is always so fun and makes for good memories. Especially when I bust really hard on the knee board and almost break my back.

Road tripping from Utah to Texas for Tamra's wedding and surprising everyone was definitely a good memory with her. Oh the things you do when you're lacking sleep.

Savanna and I have had many wonderful times together and I know that we will be friends for the rest of this life and the next. 


Utah, Texas, NYC = Bliss

So in the past few weeks a lot has gone on! Please let me explain. 

First of all my roommates and myself got to go to an apple orchard here in Provo and pick apples, ride on a zipline and take adorable pictures! It was definitely time well spent with some amazing girls. 

We also dressed up as a cute pumpkin patch and drove up to a cabin of a friend of ours and ate some yummy food and got our groove on. We were told we were the life of the party. AS ALWAYS.

Megan, Kaylie and myself roadtripped to Ft. Collins Colorado this past weekend to follow our BYU Cougars and cheer them on to a victory against CSU. It was freezing cold but we had a wonderful time together. It was definitely a great escape from the demands of school and life here in Provo.

And last but certainly not least I have a boyfriend named Nicholas Gordon (goes by Cole) who I like a lot. He's SO good to me and I look forward to every moment spent with him (and his family). We're going to watch the midnight showing of the new Harry Potter movie this Thursday (and I've only seen 2 of the 6 so I've got some catching up to do before then) and I'm super excited about it! We go on lots of fun dates and have many laughs together. It's great! I am staying here for Thanksgiving break and since he only lives 30 min away from here I'll get to spend almost all day everyday with him during that break. Oh how excited I am for that. Also I may be going to New York City for New Years with him and his family!! How cool would that be?! It's not set in stone but I will seriously starve myself for the next month and a half and do whatever I can to earn money so that I can go. 
Updates to come on that later on. :) 
I don't have a picture of us together (yet) so this will have to suffice. :)

 All in all life is good and I've learned that things never go as planned so we should just take advantage of the things that do work and go with them if they feel good and get rid of them if they don't!

Esto es mi vida.

My new favorite song/theme song for my life.

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

So I must first start by saying I love Pandora. I listen to the Country Pop channel while I sit at work and being the country music guru that I am I know the majority of the songs that come on it, but then Pandora throws me for a loop when they play me somethin that I've never heard! Most of the time I skip it if it's not very appealing to me when I first hear it, but today I heard this one for the first time and fell in love. Lady Antebellum is amazing and I don't think they have a single song that I don't love but this one really touched me. This is what I want to do. I want to make my mark and do something with my life. I want to make a difference so that people know
