Reasons Why I Want a Dog...


1. They won't break your heart.
2. They'll cuddle whenever you want.
3. They don't care what you look like. You can wear sweats and be crying all night and they will still give you kisses.
4. They will watch whatever chick flick.
5. They will go walking/running with you. And go at YOUR pace.
6. They want lead you on. They'll love you at the beginning of the day. And will still love you the same at the end of the day.
7. They don't bring drama.
8. They are loyal.
9. You don't have to cook for them. Sure, you have to clean up their poop and give them water/dog food... but better that than a man's crap.
10. You can tell them anything, and they'll listen.
11. You can put them on a leash when they are being annoying.
12. They are cute. Even though they smell.
13. Their a human's best friend.
14. They LOVE driving in the car with you. And will listen to country music. Or chick music. It doesn't matter to them.
15. They pee when they see you. Well, not always. But they are excited to see your face every.single.time.


Christmas present? :)

Since it's the month of Thanksgiving I am going to talk about all the things I am grateful for in my life.
First things first.
I am grateful for SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE.
Last week I went to the concert/performance with Anna and Chelsea and it was AMAZING. Tears were almost shed, laughter just filled our little bosoms. It truly was one of the coolest experiences to see these dancers live. Here are some pictures from the memorable experience :)

(I cant get rid of this underlining. WHAT IS GOING ON. Sorry. Just try to ignore it. )

Kayla and Kupono. The Addiction Dance. Favorite Dance of the season. I seriously almost cried. It is even better live.

Jeanette and Brandon and Wade Robson's Cartoon Dance. LOVE IT.

Phillip and Jeanine and their hip hop dance!

Brandon and Jeanette--Disco Dance!

Top Ten! Plus Phillip and that other chick...why can't I remember her name?

With Anna and Chelsea :)

p.s. Does anyone know how to add pictures in a particular order so that they don't show up first...but that they come up after your writing? Does that make sense? Ugh. Sometimes this blogging sucks.
But I am still grateful for being able to go to concerts and performances and seeing So You Think You Can Dance. So cool :)

Also...had Jeanine and Jason's necklace dance on here but it kept getting deleted at the top when I tried to write something (hence the photo question). But that kiss at the end--especially live. YUM.

Good times.

Venting Sesh.

This isn't for you. This is for me.
It's been a really hard week. And I need the strength of words right now.

When I say "you" I mean... "us", or maybe more But I have learned, through intuition, that there's at least one person out there who this may help.

I guess this wasn't supposed to be easy. Maybe this is all we will ever have, or maybe there is so much more. The unseen cannot be predicted. One less thing to worry about, right? Yet it seems to control our lives. We wonder what tomorrow will bring and if our problems will soon be solved. I believe the hardest lesson we learn in life is that IT GOES ON. Life is what you make it, and holding onto imperfections holds you back from the discovering things about yourself that you can't even imagine. And whether you're ready for the world or not, it's coming at you. And much sooner than you expected. No matter how unprepared we are, we can't stop ourselves from the future. Maybe that's the problem. We want everything. Right now. I wish I could tell you the secret to life, but I guess I don't really know for myself. I know that family and the gospel and friends are sufficient means to that happiness--but then why does it seem as though something is always missing? I think maybe that happiness appears in the things we look to for comfort, the people that are always there to catch us when we fall. Maybe it's the simple things in life that give us some hope to go on. I know life is never easy, but that's why we're put on this earth: to overcome it.

However, I have learned that life is too dark of a place not to have something to hold on to.

Life is temporary. God's love lasts forever.

Anyone can run away from the problems. But that won't make them stronger. In fact, it makes them an even bigger coward. So why do I (we) run? We try to escape the pain. I run from opening up to others. What is so bad that we feel the need to leave all the people we love behind? These are our trials. This is our life. We have the power to make it better.

God doesn't put us through pain to punish us; he does it because he loves us. Kind of a strange concept, I know. The only reason He makes life hard is to help us grow stronger, in hope that we will make wiser decisions.

Sometimes being lost is a good thing. It's an experience when we learn that there's always going to be family and friends there to catch us when we fall. Crying is merely begging to God, when we can't find the strength within ourselves.

I don't think I give myself enough credit. I have slowly come to the knowledge that people can trust me. I have been told before that people don't question their trust with our relationship at all. And that is one of the biggest compliments I have ever received. Loyalty is everything. Throughout life, the people who weren't ever supposed to let you down, probably down. This is so sad, but true. Because people are human beings, we will all be let down. In fact, there will be periods of times where we will let others down as well. More significantly, sometimes we let ourselves down. No one gives us expectations. We set those for ourselves. The only person we need to live up to is OURSELVES.

Sometimes it doesn't seem fair that such a happy person has to deal with something as miserable as depression or being down. I know there are times when we want to drop off the face of the earth and avoid life. And sometimes...that's okay. You don't need to be happy for anyone but yourself.

Sometimes we're so blinded by our darkness, that we forget to open our eyes.
Manage to hang on, even when you may feel like you're falling apart inside. Be loyal. Be family-oriented. Be introspective. Be reflective. Be emotional. Be compassionate. Be passionate. Be non-judgmental. Be selfless. Stand up for something. If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
It's those things that define who are--the fact that we are children of God.
When we live according to the truth of the gospel, we feel better about who we are. There's no argument in that statement. Zero.

Life's going to kick us. And in times when we are down too.
But please. please.
Don't give up on being happy. Sometimes it's the only thing that gets you through.

All Halloween-ed Out.

So don't get me wrong, I adore Halloween. I used to dress up all of the time as a little girl so the fact that I get to eat candy and dress up however I want is quite fun for me. Then again, sometimes I am still five years old. But after this week, I am so Halloween-ed out!!!
WHICH is funny. Because I was a five year old for Halloween! Slash more like Shirley Temple. But I also got: Alice in Wonderland, Goldilocks, Dorothy, Minnie Mouse...I'm not quite sure how, but I did! I honestly could not tell you what my costume is. But we'll go with a five year old/Shirley Temple. It was just so dang cute :)
In college, Halloween lasts three days. Not just one. Two parties Thursday, two parties Friday and one Saturday. So by ACTUAL Halloween, I was exhausted. Needless to say, there were some crazy fun dance parties!

With my roommate, Ally. She did my hair :)

With my neighbors, Heather and Erin. Why are we standing so far apart? Haha. We really do like eachother, I swear!

Me. Yay!

I went trick or treating with Palmer and Portia (my niece and nephew...see first picture) before I went out on Saturday. That was probably the most fun event of Saturday night! Haha. They were both clowns. Although, I am scared of clowns--they just looked adorable. They couldn't quite down "trick or treat" at first so we had to practice it a couple of times with them. After a few houses, they got the idea. Palmer would ring the doorbell ten times and when they opened the door, he would attempt to walk in. Or he would just stick his bag out or ask to choose his favorite candy.
We went up to Camille Anderson's on Osmond Lane. IT WAS PACKED. The kids just kept coming!! So Palmer and Portia decided they wanted to help out a bit. The kids had more fun GIVING out candy to other kids than trick or treating themselves. Palmer and Portia would just comment on all of the other kids costumes and smile. It was thoroughly entertaining.

It's been a long, good Halloween! And I'm now ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas--my favorite holidays :) Above are a couple of pictures from Halloween.

It's a beautiful fall day here in Provo, so I'm going to go read out in the grass. LOVE nice fall weather! Hope your Halloween was fantastic! What were you costumes (I need ideas for next year...yes...already planning) :)

People are SO lame.

And frustrating. And so NOT loyal.

Don't Judge Me.

Okay, Okay, OKAY. I KNOW I blog a lot. I'm sorry!!!!!
I'm a little embarrassed.

But I have to post this video.

And here are my reasons:
1. I am obsessed with this song. I love Miley Cyrus. Judge me, I dare you.
B. This video made me laugh. Silly boys.

Oh goll.
I hope you laughed as hard as I did when you saw this. If not...
well...then I'm embarrassed.

There Ya Go Again, Idaho!

{This is me. Dead}

This past Wednesday I had a little Fall Break off of school. So I decided to head up on to BYU-Idaho and visit my old school and my best friends Maria and Alyssa.
It was a blast!! It was my first time being back in Idaho for a year and it was amazing to have all of these memories automatically fly back.

[Side note: It was funny to me because although I miss the memories...I had no desire to go back. I missed some of the most amazing friends I have made, but I realized it is not the place I am supposed to be. Made me realize that everything happens for a reason and that I am here in Provo for a reason.]

BUT...that's not the point of this story. This is the point:
It was all fun and games. Laughing, eating crap, going to haunted mills...all the fun college stuff.
Until Thursday Night. My stomach started hurting immensely. At first, I thought it was just because of all the junk food I was eating. Well, before I knew was Friday morning and i threw up FIVE TIMES IN TWO HOURS. So Maria ran me to the doctor.

And here's my diagnosis:
I don't know if you remember, but I had swine flu two weeks ago. It was miserable. And the worst thing about this whole thing is that because I have swine immune system is dead. The doctor said the worst part about getting H1N1 is that your immune system is so down that you become extremely susceptible to other infections. So I now have bronchitis and the stomach flu. I have had a terrible cough the past two weeks, after getting swine flu, but I didn't think it was bronchitis because I felt fine.
So I was stuck up in Idaho, EXTREMELY sick. All i wanted to do was to go home to Oregon and have my mommy take care of me :(
Maria took care of me like none other. She fed me and I felt so bad because all of her roommates had to leave because they didn't want to get it!! I felt terrible. Amazing Maria, DROVE ME BACK TO PROVO. So I could at least be in the comfort of my own apartment. Seriously, she is the best friend ever. THANK YOU SO MUCH MARIA!!! I couldn't ask for a better best friend!
So I'm sitting here in my bedroom, barely able to type this because I still feel like crap. If you have swine flu, TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. Because your immune system is down for like a month, so take it easy!!
Luckily, I have the best visiting teachers in the world who just brought over movies and soup and cookies! How sweet are they?!

I am so grateful for my visiting teachers and my best friends and my roommates for being so kind and taking care of me these past few weeks. I seriously am surrounded by such great people. Now I just need to heal.

And of course it happened in Rexburg.
Idaho hates me.

Tuesday, October 6, 2009


So the last blog I posted was super pensive and "thought provoking".

My conversation with a friend in one of my classes today:

Friend: I read your blog last night.
Me: Oh really? I'm so happy people read my blogs!
Friend: It made me want a blog.
Me: Do it! Then we can be friends!
Friend: Yea, but they are sometimes a little too...deep...for me.
Me: Oh. Yea. I gotcha.
Friend: No I wasn't implying
Me: It's cool. I GET IT.

So I feel stupid for my melodramatic posts. Forgive me.
I'm thinking of deleting the one below. Because I'm embarrassed.

The Other Side

I know I have been blogging a lot.
Forgive me.
But when you are dealing with swine flu--mindless work seems to reek of sheer delightfulness. Homework seems to be TOO much thinking. And blogging...well...blogging involves opinionated venting. Now that is perfect!

So I'm going to vent.

Before I begin, I want you to look at that picture above.
First of all, how beautiful is that photography? It is by a guy named Rodney Smith. Fantastic work. It has a "secret garden-esque" feel to it. The setting in itself is amazing. And swings just make me happy. Therefore; it makes me feel peace and serene. Gah, superb!

Now that I have you in a pensive, deep moment--let me ask you these two questions
Why are people so frustrating?!?!?!
And why is it that the grass is always greener on the other side?

While I was sitting in Oregon this summer, I was SO EXCITED to come back to Provo (amazing, I know) and to come back to college life. I honestly had the greatest summer. I truly truly enjoyed myself and created the "Sierra" I think we all have been waiting for me to create and find. But i was constantly looking for something more. I think that is one of my faults. I am constantly looking towards the past or the future. At this moment, I just want to go home and have my mom take care of me while I'm sick. I want my friends who have known me since I was five to sit and talk with me, because I don't have to prove anything to them, or be someone I'm not with them. Yet, I know when I go back to Oregon--I'm just going to miss living on my own and being around people with good, core values. The song "I Keep Looking" by Sara Evans portrays my life perfectly (hello, this is me. OF COURSE a life story song will be incorporated)

Back when I was young
Couldn't wait to grow up
Get away and get out on my own
And looking back now
Ain't it funny how
I've been trying to get back home, yeah

When my low self esteem
Needs a man loving me
And I find me a perfect catch
Then I see my friends
Having wild weekends
Then I don't wanna get quite so attached
Just as soon as I get what I want
I get unsatisfied
Good is good but could be better

I keep looking, I keep looking for
I keep looking for something more
I always wonder what's on the other side
Of the number two door
I keep looking
Looking for something more

I have realized something. I have had a great epiphany and I am going to proclaim this ingenious statement:

We all need to live in the here and now. Live for TODAY. I look too much towards the future and what next thing is going to be sufficient. My life is wonderful. I need to savor the side on I'm now; not the side I'm going to be on in a year, or the field I was plucking in last semester.

And I need to get over the mistakes that I have made in the past and the way people used to be. I build up people in my mind, greater than they actually are. That might sound cruel but I have learned that people aren't as loyal as they pretend to be. I paint this fairytale friendship with girls and it turns out, people don't care as much as you believe. It may be a completely cynical and negative view on people, but people suck. Haha. The are frustrating, confusing, and selfish...yet thoroughly entertaining and fascinating. I don't know if I want to spend anymore time thinking about that.

So for now....I savor the good friends and family I DO have. I may not have a million friends calling me 24/7. I don't get asked on dates every night. I scare boys. But I know, the people who really matter are here. Right now. For me.
For now, Let's savor our lives. HOW GREAT ARE WE?!

It happens.

Yes, SWINE FLU does happen.

I officially have it.

And they weren't kidding when they said it's MISERABLE. So I'm just lying around my apartment, watching Newsies and Friends (that's the only good part about this sickness). And since there is no meds for it...I just have to suck it up and wait til it's over.

Would You Still Love Me?

if I told you that I watched 4 hours of "Family Feud" with my roommate last week?

And was yelling at the TV because some people were SO STUPID....?


Sunday, September 20, 2009


If you could envision the type of person God intended you to be, you would rise up and never be the same. If God could give you one gift, it would be that you could see yourself the way that He does.

Think about it.
I have. Constantly.

No Title.

hese past few days I have been writing a letter to my good friend. Except it wasn't your average letter. She didn't want me to write about a "story that changed my life" or a personal hero of mine type of letter. Her request was simply this:

Write 100 interesting facts about yourself. Be as random and honest as possible. I want to know the real you.

And since my birthday is in a few days...this is my birthday Haha. So my fellow bloggers... I present to you the most bizarre, random, maybe-too-much-info facts about me. Grab some popcorn, sit back and relax...because this is going to be a wild journey.

1. I was born on Sept. 9, 1990. Now, to you that may not be the most interesting fact. But if you continue to look at the date throughout the years you will notice that I turned 9 on 9/9/1999. And I will be turning 19 on 9/9/2009. That doesn't happen very often. Pretty sweet, eh?
2. Ask anyone who knows me. I'm stubborn as a mule. That's it.
3. For me, when it comes to looking for a man, or for this thing called "love" or whatever...humor is HUGE. Being a priesthood holder is the most important, but humor comes next. Conversely, they have to be able to communicate on a deeper level as well.
4. Sometimes people find me TOO outgoing. I know that sounds weird, but I think I intimidate some people. When in reality, I act crazy only with the people I feel most comfortable.
5. But, I have also learned that the guys I intimidate are just the ones who are looking for the "shy, passive girl who they can walk all over." No one's going to walk all over me, and I don't want that kind of guy anyway. And the girls who I'm "too much" for tend to just be jealous of my confidence.
6. Going along with that...I've learned that Confidence is everything. I've developed it immensely in the past few months and I have learned that I accomplish so much more when I have the ability to shake everybody else out of my head, and believe in myself.
7. I sleep text. Yes, with a cell phone. It's an addiction. Warning: Don't sleep and text. Some absolutely horrific texts are sent. Example a) NIGHT BEAR. (Summer 09 gang)
8. Some days I am completely self conscious about my body. Some days I hate it and wish I had somebody else's. Other days, I don't give a rat's you-know-what about it.
9. You do not want to be around me when I don't sleep. Or if I haven't eaten. I'm like a child when it comes to those things. My blood sugar drops way low. And it's not pretty. At all.
10. Consistency is what keeps me sane. I love routine. I crave consistency. Again, like a child.
11. While we're on this child tangent...I'm starting to learn that I think more like a child. I get along better with kids, being around children makes me so much happier, and it puts things into perspective for me. Hence the reason why I want to be a teacher.
12. I love love listening to people's issues. Which is why I want to be a school counselor. Perfect, eh?
13. Ironically, even though I love routine...I'm constantly looking for something more. Even though after I THINK I've found that "something more" I am unhappy, I still keep thinking that the grass is greener on the other side. Change is super hard for me, yet I keep looking for something more.
14. I'm obsessed with crushed ice. And I'm not exaggerating when I say obsessed. Crushed only though. Preferably the pellet kind, like at Sonic burger. I have to have a cup a day.
Side Note: I was watching an interview with Martina Mcbride (which by the way is my favorite singer of all time...does that count as another number?....) and she makes her husband bring along a special crushed ice, pellet kind...on the road with her so that she can have crushed ice daily. Yea, we're BFF.
15. See side note above.
16. I get distracted very easily. Surprising, I know. Don't even get me started on multi tasking. Sheesh. Impossible.
17. I don't get guys. Call me a cynic. But I'm starting to believe that people (men) are too immature and too selfish and too scared to let themselves fall like that.
18. Biggest pet peeves: Slow drivers in the fast lane, people slurping their soup and cereal, when girls act stupid around boys just to get attention, and when people pop their gum.
19. I love lists. To do lists. Bucket lists. Organized lists. This List.
20. I LOVE going to the movies. Something about sitting in a movie theater and feeling emotion is utterly amusing to me. Despite the outrageous price of movies, it is worth it to me.
21. Music is life. Literally. It has saved my life.
22. There is no better feeling than getting into bed late at night after a GOOD day. After a long day in the sun, and working out, and being with people you love.
23. There is also no better feeling than waking up with the birds chirping and the sun shining. And being able to sleep in general. I used to have sleep issues, so getting a good nights rest is splendid!
24. If I could have any superpower, it would be to be able to read minds (fly, duh. But that's everyone's choice). How I wish I could read animals, men, teachers minds'.
25. I love boating. I suck at wakeboarding. I dont enjoy tubing half the time. But I love to just be on a boat. It always makes me sleepy too.
26. I am addicted to the game Brickbreaker on my cellular device.
27. When I'm nervous, scared, excited, or just bored I move my arms back and forth and rock. Yes, like a challenged person.
28. Although I am outgoing and crazy, I am very cautious and timid sometimes. I'm not a daredevil at all. I hate heights. Hate. Hate. Hate.
29. If I could have another talent, it would be to paint, draw, etc...really have SOME artistic ability. haha
30. I cry a lot. I laugh more. I'm just very expressive.
31. I'm very sensitive. Sometimes too sensitive. I put up a front that I'm heartless, but I actually feel things very deeply.
32. I think cowboys are HOT. I absolutely adore rodeos. I secretly wish I was raised out in the country on a farm as a cowgirl.
33. I hate people. They confuse me. The frustrate me.
34. BUT...they also fascinate me. I could people watch all day.
35. See what I mean, completely opposite comments in the past two numbers. I change my mind a lot...
36. I'm very loyal. And very passionate. And I have found that others aren't that way. It's disheartening for me to put my all into friendships and never have it reciprocated.
37. I'm indecisive. Kind of...
38. My brain/personality type: INFP. If you're not into this...look it up. It helps me understand myself way better.
39. I love taking quizzes about myself.
40. I heart facebook. And I love blogging. Okay, I admit it.
41. I like to plan things in advance. I can do spontaneous acts often. But I usually like to know what I'm gettin myself into. For example: I like to know the "jist" of it. Like who's going to be there, what time, and where. And plan it in advance...BUT when we all get together as friends, I am more than willing to do something random and exciting and spontaneous (and fun!)
42. I believe in Happily Ever After.
43. I KNOW that a warm smile or hug can truly make a day better.
44. I daydream. A lot. I'm in my world. Thinking of what things COULD be like.
45. Topaz and Keo. My two kitties growing up. Funny how I miss them still.
46. My hero: Norma Jean. My grandmother. Funnny how I miss her A LOT. Still. Even though its been seven years since she's passed.
47. I regret one thing in my life: Having to leave Idaho.
48. Everything happens for a reason. Everything.
49. I don't do anything half-hearted. When I love something, I am passionate about it. I either LOVE something or HATE something. There's no in between for me.
50. "Just because today is a terrible day, doesn't mean tomorrow won't be the best day of your life. You just gotta get there."
51. Quotes. Quotes. Quotes. I have books of them.
52. Lyrics. Lyrics. Lyrics. Life story songs...they get me through the hard times, the good times, the confusing times.
53. Polka dots are fun. I'm just saying. You may or may not see them everywhere on or with me.
54. I LOVE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL! AND I DONT CARE WHO KNOWS IT. (p.s. have you seen 17 again?! amazing!)
55. Okay, I'm sort of a camera whore. That is, if I actually had a camera for myself. (anyone in the mood for gifts? :)) I like taking pictures, I like being in pictures. NOT because I'm self absorbed and want everyone to know how cool I am. But because I think they capture good memories and they're fun!
56. I touch my nose a lot when I say stuff. No, not picking my nose. But when I want something, I put my pointer finger on the tip of my nose. And usually smile wide. I dont know, I look like a little girl. Ask Kristen. She knows.
57. Sometimes I'm a little too deep. Sometimes people call it "Emo". Haha. No emo-ness here, just a lot of thoughts.
58. Family is everything. Everything.
59. Reality tv makes me feel better about my life. Bachelor/Bachelorette, So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol. And I love all those shows that most people don't admit to loving: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, etc. I feel like I connect with those characters. hahaha
60. I don't have a spending problem, but when I walk in a store I want EVERYTHING. Luckily, I've taught myself some self control and usually use my money wisely. But still. Lottery?
61. I'm happy right now. I have some bad days where I don't want to get out of bed, and I cry still. But I haven't been this happy in a long long time. And I can't even begin to tell you how remarkable that feels.
62. I'm mormon. Yup. Mormon. Correct term: Latter Day Saint. I may not know everythin about the church, but I do know that the feelings and experiences I have gotten by being a member are too amazing to ignore.
63. I believe in heaven. And that families are together forever (sorry fam. love ya?)
64. Sports=life. Basketball, lacrosse, tennis (my most recent obsession), volleyball, etc. Watching football or ANY sport. It's so...AWESOME. haha.
65. The Beach. Aw, the beach. That's all that is needed for that.
66. I strongly dislike nail polish on my fingernails. Yes, I'm a girl and I don't like painting my toenails and fingernails. I always take it off once it's on.
67. I've learned that first impressions are usually wrong. And I try not to judge too quickly.
68. Avocado. Guacamole. Yummayyyy.
69. I'm still immature enough to laugh when I hear "69."
70. I sing high. Really high. And I like to do it too. Strange, I know.
71. It takes me awhile to fall for a guy, but when I do...I fall HARD. I get really attached to friends, and guys. Only after awhile though.
72. I think about my wedding. Like colors and where the reception is going to. Yea, I just admitted that.
73. Tennis is a good anger management tool.
74. Sometimes I get road rage. And I yell. Yea....
75. I flirt. A lot.
76. I do not enjoy being late. No. I REALLY do not enjoy being late. Especially for church.
77. I follow my emotions. I follow instincts. I tend to listen to those things more than logic. Sometimes its amazing. Sometimes it's not a fantastic thing.
78. Favorite word: Serendipity. It's just so cool to say. And the definition is pretty sweet: A fortunate accident. Move ain't bad either.
79. In movies, often times it will be just me laughing. Really loud. And usually at the parts where no one else is laughing. I do it too when I am watching tv alone. Yes, all by my lonesome self...I'll laugh with myself. Totally cool.
80.I don't enjoy shopping just for fun. I like to shop when I have a purpose or a set item in mind. But even then, I can only last about an hour. I start getting cranky after that. Yes. Again, not a normal girl.
81. But conversely, I love checking out other people's styles. Mostly just envying them because they always look so cute and so creative. And I'm too lazy and poor to make that much effort. Haha. If I had the time and money and care for it, I'd love to dress myself in SUHWEET outfits!
82. Migraines=suck. I get REALLY bad ones every few months. They are possible the worst thing on this planet. And I'm not exaggerating when I say that. I feel some (not quite enough) empathy for my sister, Lexie, and best friend, Lauren, who get them horribly. I PRAY FOR YOU GUYS!
83. If I wasn't getting married in the temple, I would want my wedding in a gazebo on the beach. I heart gazebos. White ones, in particular.
84. When someone asks me my most embarrassing moment: I honestly can't think of one. I have embarrassing moments all the time...but it really takes a lot for me to get embarrassed. I probably have had incidents happen where I probably SHOULD look back and be horrified...but I can't think of any. I probably just blocked it out. Haha. But I know I WOULD be embarrassed if I farted on a date. I'm just saying. Horrified of that happening... I just psyched myself out.
85. Oh wait. I peed my pants (yes, in bold.) I was laughing so hard freshmen year of high school. That's an embarrassing moment. Right? Except, I didn't even care....Ha?
86. Call me a horrible person: I use my name to an advantage. Ainge, all the way baby! Represent!. WOOT. K I'm done. Sorry.
87. I'm a huge dork. And I like being around dorks. I hate "too cool" guys. Yes, hate. Haha.
88. I like cats. And dogs, of course. But YES, I DO like cats. K i just love animals.
89. My roommate just asked me how many boys I've kissed: I'm not answering that question. (Had ya fooled there for a moment, huh?!) I have kissed enough let's just say that. Hi mom... :/
90. I have been skinny dipping. Multiple times. Probably because I didn't wear clothes til I was about seven years old, so it was like reminiscing the good old days?
...And you think I'm kidding.
91. Dr. pepper.
92. I'm a blonde haired, blue eyed BEAUTY. Haha. Never died my hair, never will until I have to.
93. I'm a Book Nerd.
94. I just asked my roommate to describe me in three words. Her response: crazy, opinionated, and funny. Yikes.
95. Favorite Vacation: uhhhh FIJI. Nothing is better. Ever.
96. I have a bucket list. And here it is:
--Live in a house with a porch (and hopefully a willow tree and gazebo)
--visit every state in the U.S. (and every temple in that state)
--Visit Italy, Greece, Africa, and Fiji. ONE DOWN BABY!!
--tryout for broadway, or big time play. OR. Sing a solo for more than a 1000 people.
--Have a portrait painted/drawn

--Be an extra (sheesh, a main character if possible) in a film/tv show.
--Send a message in a bottle.
--Float down a river in a tube- CHECK
--Teach someone something that is life altering. Reading, etc.
--Go on a Hot Air Balloon
-run a HALF marathon

(K those last ones took up like a million so we're skipping to 100.)

I apologize for all of you that had to sit through that. Hopefully you enjoyed it? :)

I Keep My Promises

Yea, that's right. I told you I was post my millions of pictures from Summer 2009. So I present to you some of the greatest four months.
I figure some of you may not even WANT to see all of these. Just humor me.

Told you there were a lot. :)
