Dance like no one is watching...

Sean and I went to Mormon Prom together back in April, it was so much fun! Great friends, great food, and we looked darn good if I do say so myself. We had fun with it and went vintage, because that's just what fits our personalities. Here is a collection of photos from the night!

I don't think I will ever succesfully be able to do this.


Yep. Totally wore Keds with socks, I had no interest in my feet hurting on my night. I'm sure I will do the same thing on my wedding day. ;)

Dude, stop it with the faces!


The awesome group we went with.

He replied: "Love is when you steal my chocolate from my school pack every day...and I still keep it in the same place."

My New Happy Place...

Zumba. That's right! Kylie actually found a form of exercise she can handle...enjoys even! I love that amidst all of this craziness I can take a break and do something that is fun, distracting, and is actually productive. I am so commited that my mom bought me yoga pants and I actually wear them. And you guys have no idea how big a deal it is that I even put on yoga pants let alone wore them in any sort of public venue. So, if you haven't discovered the magic yet, go! And yes I've already made my dad and Sean go with me, they totally had fun too. Boom.

Oh and guys, I hate dislike Anthropology with a deep passion within my very soul. Anthropology is not my happy place. Just thought I would let you know.

That time when Spiderman becomes amazing. Oh, and way attractive.

Guys. This movie, it's adorable. Like seriously you will giggle at least 17 times. Which means I giggled 217 times. Cause ya know, that's just how normal I am. Oh and I cried, cause that's what I do best.

Why are they both so perfect? Seriously.

 Gwen Stacy: How did you get up here?
Peter Parker/Spider-Man: The fire escape.
Gwen Stacy: That's twenty stories.
Peter Parker/Spider-Man: Your doorman's intimidating.

I dreamed a dream...

Several months ago I had the opportunity to go see Les Misérables, my parents are just the best. And it was amazing, and I cried a lot, because for years I had read the book and sung the songs and dreamed of the day I would get to see it for reals! It melted my heart.

Then this came along:

And it was oh so spectacular. And I cried more than I ever had in any movie ever, and that is saying something because I am a huge cryer you guys.
I have a soft spot for Eponine. She will always be my favorite. Her love for Marius is beautiful, and my heart breaks along with her. (Remember how I cried an unhealthy a large amount?)

My love for Eponine has always pushed through and made it so I've never liked Cosette a whole lot, and it didn't help that when I saw it live the girl playing her did not have a voice cut out for the role. But I came to adore her while watching this movie, and her and Marius were so sweet and loving to each other I couldn't help but love them together.

And just to leave you with two incredibly attractive faces...

You are welcome.

So, I have a confession. Which is actually not much of a confession because this should be a well known fact about me. I am slightly obsessive I get a tad bit excited when it comes to weddings. It's just one of those things that makes me incredibly happy! The pretty dresses, gorgeous bride, handsome groom, dancing, the engagement story, all of that lovey dovey stuff. Yeah, it's my thing.
Tonight I got to go to a wedding reception and it was of course lovely! The bride was stunning, and all of the engagement pictures made me want to cry they were so adorable. And for reals, I think I got told "You're next..." at least 67 times. And I kept responding with "I hope so!" which I don't think my mother appreciated. ;) In reality, I plan on finishing nursing school and maybe travel a bit before I get married. Maybe even a mission for my church for that traveling! That would be lovely. And then me and my tall, attractive husband travel a bit more, together this time. And then we have pretty babies, five of them, but far enough apart that I don't explode or something similarly drastic...I guess I don't really get that much control over my life, although I like to pretend I do. :)

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Christmas! Oh how I love you. The lights, the nativities, the decorations. The Christmas carols on the radio. The adventure of hunting down the perfect gifts. The staying up all night wrapping those perfect gifts. The Christmas story. The family time. The "Christmas Morning" butterflies. The taking hours slowly opening gifts. The staying in new pajamas all day. I love it all.  And this Christmas was especially lovely.
I couldn't sleep Christmas night, I was all wrapped up in bed wearing my beautiful, soft new pajamas but could not for the life of me sleep! The Christmas butterflies are on a roll man! But I stayed happy and awake all Christmas of course, with the adrenaline of it all. Here are a few of my favorite presents I received...
From my amazing parents, Taylor Swift Red Tour concert tickets. Oh my goodness it was a surprise! I sadly have to wait until August, but that gives me time to get all of my awesome dance moves down so it's all good.

From my lovely boy, a homemade "Happy Pillow", pictures of happy moments, favorite people, attractive actors, the temple, baby animals. Pretty much sums up the things that can instantly make me happy. There is even a Pooh Bear quote! "Any day spent with you is my favorite day. So, today is my new favorite day." Goodness it made me so happy! I instantly proved that it was named properly. It was a perfect present. :)

And again from the best parents ever, I got my two nerdy presents! A "River Song" journal for an ode to one of my favorite shows, Doctor Who. And a "BAZINGA!" shirt as an ode to Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, my most recent obsession. Wow they are best!!

I am so grateful for my family, friends, and leaders who are there for me always in my times of need. And I am eternally grateful to my Saviour, who sacrificed everything for me. As I celebrate this joyful Christmas season, I of course love the excitement and presents, but it will always really be the celebration of Christs birth. So Happy Birthday my kind older brother, thank you so much for looking out for me always, I look forward to the day where I get to hug you tight and thank you in person again.

12 And this shall be a asign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 aGlory to God in the highest, and on earth bpeace, good will toward men.

Happy Birthday Paige

Today was Paige's 15th birthday. The poor girl had to spend it in the hospital (See post below for why in the world she would have to do that.) The boy and I took her Panera for lunch. Barbecue chicken salad, Mac n' Cheese, and grape juice. She was laughing by the end of it, always a good sign. Then we dropped her back off at the hospital and zipped on over to Forever 21, because it's fun to make him go into girly stores because I needed to get a necklace to match the shirt I got her for her birthday present. We found the perfect one, and then proceeded to get hopelessly lost in the rain and bustle of mall traffic and took 30 minutes, instead of two and a half, to get to Lowe's. Why are we now at Lowe's? We actually had no idea why. But my mother did, who was at home, so she talked to the workers via my cell phone. 30 minutes and a lot of running around that giant store later, we checked out with six light bulbs. Meanwhile, my mom, Lilly, the Murray family, and Krissa are busy at work completely re-decorating Paige's room! Turns out the light bulbs were for the chandelier (yes you read that right, chandelier. My mom is awesome.) They transformed the room into a very pink masterpiece, with places for necklaces, curling irons, earrings, blow dryers, even a section of the wall dedicated to Blake Shelton! Paige loves it, and we ended the night with frozen pie which is always a plus.
Paige, you are the strongest girl I know. You are amazing and beautiful, all of the time. And even though I might not show it often enough, I am so incredibly grateful that I got you as a sister. I really am the luckiest duck.

Quote Of The Day
“Sister. She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.”
