Places to Go

Paris, France.
Hawaii. It's so beautiful! I want to learn to surf someday, where else to do it than Hawaii?
Havasupai. An oasis in the middle of the desert. The hike in might be insane, but I think it would be such a fun experience!

The Salt Lake Temple. Always have and always will want to go to inside of that place. Seeing it now is a reminder of what i need to do to be able to do so. I can't wait til that day comes when i'll be able to go inside a single girl and come out as somebody's wife. The gospel is something that has made my life more than  just peachy in so many ways. I just can't wait til i get to experience the sacredness of the temple. I can't really imagine what it will be like right now, but i know what i have to do to be worthy to go inside someday. It's holds the top spot on places I want to go someday.

Thanksgiving is almost here! YAY! I'm so excited to have a break from school for a short time and see my family. It's going to be really nice. I just wanted to write down a few things that I am especially grateful for. These people and things make happier than anything. I'm absolutely grateful for all of them.
  1. My family. My parents, grandparents, extended family, and my siblings. I don't know where i would be without them. Their support means everything to me.
  2. My roommates: Techinally these five girls are my second family. They are amazing people. They are great examples to me. They are always there to cheer you up when you have a bad day.
  3. My education: I know i complain about school alot, because it is seriously hard, and everyday brings a new challenge to overcome but i love college. I'm grateful that i have the opportunity to study at BYU and learn in a spritually enriched environment.
  4. My job: Without my job, i would be starving and living at my parent's house. I like living on my own and being able to support myself. My job makes that a lot easier.
  5. My health: Besides foot surgeries this year, I haven't really gotten sick. I'm really grateful for my health. I can't imagine being sick  all the time.
  6. My friends: When you grow up and go to college, you lose a lot of your friends. I'm super grateful for my friends who have stayed close to me since we all moved away. It's always nice to get a call from your girls and talk about things.
  7. My faith: I'm so grateful for the gospel in my life. It has brought me so many blessings, so many things that i know i would not be able to have without the gospel.
  8. My boy: Where would i be without him? That's a good question. I'd probably be severly depressed. haha! Brady makes me happy. He helps me find the good in every situation. He is always there to talk to and is always there for me when I have a really bad day (which lately has been everyday). Whenever I am upset about something, he always gives me a pep talk and he tells me everything is going to be ok. He always lets me cry on his shoulder (not like I always cry) but he is always there to listen when i need it. He supports my dreams, goals, and aspirations. I couldn't ask for a better boy to have in my life. I'm so grateful for him and everything that he does for me. He always reminds me that I can do this and that things could be worse. I'm so grateful he's mine. Next to him is where I belong, and next to him is where i'll always be.
As the holidays approach, there are a million reasons to be grateful. There are so many things to be grateful for. Because it is these things that have made me truly happy and have helped me find the more than just peachy things in my life.

New Finds from YouTube

I've always liked Panic at The Disco! Their music not only is so good, but their music videos are really good too! They are very creative and always look so awesome! I once saw them live, it was incredible, i was on the front row too. So great! 
Julian Smith. My favorite funny movie making guy on youtube. This is my favorite movie of his. Brady and I always crack jokes about it because we aren't the best with keeping our eyes open while taking pictures. hehe. What are you stupid? Red eye flashes twice!
I like this song. I don't like the long hair on the guys, but it's a good song. Probably one of my new favorites since i can't stop playing it on my ipod, and I bought it on itunes without even realizing that it was already on my ipod. haha!

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

It's snowing in Provo. I'm super happy right now.
I love the snow.
I love the cold.
I love coats, boats, and scarves.
I love hot chocolate.
 I love winter.
I love Christmas.
I love the reason why we have Christmas.
I love the music.
I love the smells, the sounds, and the scences.
I love the time with my family.
I love it all.
But most of all,
I love you!

This will be our first Christmas together, I don't think it would mean much to me if I couldn't spend it with you. It means a lot to me, to share this time with you. Because this is the greatest time of the year, it is the time we celebrate the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ. This is the only Christmas we will spend together for at least the next two years. Two years is a long time, but i it's okay, because we will have one amazing Christmas together, and then I can cherish the memory of this Christmas for those two lonely years. I can't wait for Christmas to come. I can't wait for the best two years of your life to come. It's going to be great. It's all going to be great, and no matter what happens, great things are going to come out of these next few years. The one we spend together and even the ones we spend apart.

Perfect For Me

A while ago, I posted some lyrics from one of my favorite songs ever! It's called Perfect for Me and sung by the fabulous Ron Pope.
I'd just like to say I thank God, that you're here with me
and I know you too well to say your perfect,
 but you'll see oh my sweet love you're perfect for me.

 I have always felt like my boyfriend, Brady, is my perfect match. Tonight he told me that. He told me that I was perfect for him, and the moment I heard those words come out of his mouth, I truly did believe him. I knew at that moment, that I am perfect for him. I love that feeling. It shoots warm fuzzies throughout my entire body just thinking about it. Brady is mine. I am his. He is perfect for me, and I am perfect for him. I think that when you find that person who loves you for exactly who you are, then there really is something there. That to me, is true love. Accepting each other for who you are, loving each other for who you are, and being there for each other. I have a man who thinks i'm perfect, I don't have to strive to be someone i'm not, I can be myself with Brady. That is the greatest feeling in the world. I'm so grateful to have him. Because that it what really makes my life more than just peachy. He makes the bad become good, the sad become happy, and the hard become easy. I wouldn't want it any other way. Not at all. I hope all my girlfriends can remember to just keep looking for that person who makes you feel that way, don't settle for the first guy who comes around. Unless, you just happen to get really lucky like me, and get someone like Brady. Guys like him are knights in shining armor for sure!

Cheers to the Weekend!

This weekend I was super lucky and was able to go with Brady and his family to St. George! It was so much fun! There were so many awesome things that we were able to do.

1) We drove down on Friday night and went swimming around midnight, in the dark. The lights were turned off because we were there so late! But it was awesome!
2) On Saturday, Brady and I met up with his older brother there and we went to Zions National Park for a few hours. We went on a short hike and then got an awesome lunch.
3) We met up with the rest of the family at this amazing steakhouse! (We did lots more that actually eat this trip.) They bring out your steak on a hot sizzling stone and you cut it up and cook your steak yourself! Brady and I shared and had the most amazing steak ever! We're pro at cooking for sure! It was the best steak i've eaten in my life!
4) After dinner, we went to Tuachan Ampitheater and saw Grease! It was an amazing show and so so good! I loved it! I think Brady liked it too!
5) We drove home on Sunday after a relaxing morning hanging out with Brady's brother again. I loved it! I loved spending time with his family! I feel like i'm family already, but i'm not cause Brady still has a mission to go on.
6) There was a lot of laughing going on this trip. I shared a room with Brady's sisters and we partied it up! WOOT WOOT! We totally watched Home Alone 2 before going to be one night. haha!
7) My boyfriend is the absolute best. That is all I have to say! That boy took care of me all weekend! He is so considerate and so nice, and he makes sure that I am all good all the time. I didn't feel good as we were driving home and Brady kept asking me every five minutes if I was okay. It was really sweet of him to take care of me!

This weekend was absolutely great! It was so awesome to be able to sit back and relax. I didn't spend time doing homework which probably wasn't a good idea, but it was so much fun to spend time with my boy and his family! Every single minute spent with them was a more than just peachy moment! These are the weekends that I definitely wish I had more of.

Tuesday, September 13, 2011


I struggle with focusing on things I don't want to do. Like my homework, my dishes, and my laundry. I am a total procrastinator. On a normal day i do three things. 1. Go to school. 2. Go to work. 3. Think about Brady. I think about him alot, probably because i miss him alot. I know there is only a difference of 14.3 miles in between us, but I feel like that really adds up when I can't drive anywhere. So, I usually just see Brady on the weekends. I go home or he comes here and we go on dates. It's amazing. But tonight, he called me and asked if he could come over! WOOHOO! YES! I obviously wasn't going to say no to that! He came over, and brought us a tv which we really needed, and then we went off to the library together. It was so nice. I loved it. Usually i get distracted doing my homework. Like i'm distracted right now writing this post instead of doing homework. With Brady sitting right next to me doing his homework, and me doing mine, i felt like everything was good in the world. We were together. And that's all my little head needed to focus. It was great. I was able to get a lot done. And even thought we only got to spend a small amount of time together today, it was absolutely perfect  being right next to my man. It was more than just peachy! All i need now is for Brady to come with me everywhere, so that i'll be able to focus. Until then, i'll continue to write sappy blog posts about him. And spend hours on pinterest. :)

Perfect Day

Prom 2011. We're cute. Enough said.
A perfect day is something everyone dreams of. No work, no school, and completely stress free. But for me, i could care less if i had to work, if i had to go to school, and if i was completely stressed out to have a perfect day. Because i've realized that i have a perfect day multiple times throughout the week. Because everyday i spend with my boy is a perfect day to me. Even if it's just for a few minutes. All the bad in my day suddenly becomes good when i'm with him. Every insercurity, frustration, and worry that has run through my veins disappears the moment I see him. One little glance at him and i'm sold. Nothing bad could ever happen when i'm with him. My perfect day would consist of one thing, Brady. Hands down. There ain't no sunshine when he's gone and all the colors seem to fade away when he's gone. But when he is here, everything is perfect and nothing will rain on our parade! Good thing he's never gone too long! :) Monday he surprised me and took me to dinner, tuesday he came and took me to dinner with his family for dinner, and today he tried to come over because he was in Provo running an errand. I was sad to have missed him because i was at the library, but it was so sweet of him to try. I absolutely love that about him. He's willing to do whatever it takes to catch a glimpse of me while i'm bumming around in provo. He's seriously the greatest guy any girl could ask for. And if he ever saw my blog he'd probably get creeped out cause i'm a little creepy bragging all about him on here, but i can't help it. He's the one thing that is always going through my head! (Ya'll understand how i feel, right?) Happy Birthday to my sweet boyfriend! He turned eighteen yesterday. I'm so proud of him and all of his accomplishments! (Did i mention he's a killer salesman? He's a shining star at his work!) Anyways....I should stop rambling and finish off this rambler of a post. lol! I just needed to do something to get my mind off school for a few. Everyday is a perfect day, when i'm spending it with my boy. Enough said. It's always more than just peachy when i'm with him. I love every minute of it, even the ones we spend sitting on the couch watching tv. We love doing that. Not gonna lie. We're a really chill couple, and it's absolutely peachy that way!

College Confessions

Cofessions of a College Freshman:

1) After three days in an off-campus apartment (which is abnormal for a freshie) I can see why people get married so easily here at BYU. It's like every spare moment you spend in your apartment complex is a moment to meet someone new. I like meeting new people, but I just don't like the guys who are preying on the girls. I have a boyfriend. So, the RM's scare me. I like my boyfriend too, and i don't want to lose him. So back off RM's haha! :)

2) Three girls in a room is rough. I love my roomates already, but being on the top bunk is an adventure.

3) I'm far away from home. Yes, i know for the past eighteen years i have been dying to get out, but now that i'm in Provo, i'm sad that I am far away from my sweet boyfriend. He was so nice and drove down to see me today. He took me to dinner at SLAB! My favorite pizza place which is also in the basement of my complex. It's great. He's driving down here again to take me with him to his birthday dinner tomorow. I'm so lucky to have him. I seriously don't know what i would do without him. I was able to snag tickets to the BYU vs. Utah game for us and i told him about it today. He was so excited! I'm stoked! AH! I have the best boyfriend in the world. Enough said.

4) I'm so happy that there are only 20 people in my writing class. That's almost unheard of here at BYU and i'm so lucky to have such a small class. I'm going to be able to learn alot in that class because it will be so small and personable.

5) My schedule pretty much rocks. I got to school from 8-10 or 8-11 everyday. Which means that i get finished with school very early in the day and then i work, and then i get to study! I really like my schedule. It worked out perfectly!

6) Scooter. I have a knee scooter to help with my foot which is in a cast right now. I had another foot surgery a week and a half ago. It hasn't been to bad and it's been so nice to scooter around and conserve energy.

7) I have the best roomates ever! I'm so lucky to have really nice roommates who are so helpful. They have made moving into an apartment a really good experience so far.

That's it for now! Everything is working out pretty well and pretty much more than just peachy here in Provo. Let's hope it will last!

The Summer List

The Summer List:
  1. Go hiking! The Y and Stewart Falls are a must! 
  2. Watch Despicable Me with my boyfriend! That is one of my favorite movies and he has not seen it yet. That's almost a crime. 
  3. Go up to Silver Lake. I love this place! It's so much fun to go swimming there! It's beautiful! I'm curious to see if my Camry, Gus Gus, can make it up there with his new mud/snow tires my dad put on!
  4. Sleep out on the deck! This is a tradition among my sisters and friends! We have spent a lot of time out there.
  5.  Girls night! YES! I'm moving away, my friends are moving away, and we need one last party before we move.
  6. I really wanted to go backpacking this summer. I think it would be so much fun. So we'll see. If i could go on a short hike for even one night then i would be satisfied. 
  7. Ride the Sundance lift on a full moon night! :) I really want to do this one! It sounds like it would be so much fun! 
  8. Go to Sliding Rock.
  9. Go mountain biking, probably up at Sundance or up in AF canyon. It's so pretty up there!
I don't know how I'm going to fit all these in, but i know I've got to! I'm having another foot surgery in between summer and fall semesters so that takes up even more time. Not to mention i have to move out in that time too. Lamesauce. But I will somehow find a way to do all of this stuff. I love all of these! :) They are so more than just peachy so they obviously have got to get checked off the list!

Words with Friends

Brady and I started playing this months ago when this app was popular. I don't know who still plays Words with Friends anymore, but we still do. Why? Because i have yet to win a game. Okay, i've won two games out of the at least 15 that we've played. When i did win, it was awesome! I celebrated the defeat for hours. But as for all the losses, I would get mad, but then i realize that Brady is playing really good words. I always tell Brady not to let me win. I don't like that. I hate a pity win. I love actually winning. So we're going to be playing Words with Friends for awhile because I have yet to figure out how to score high, but that's okay because i absolutely love playing this game. Because we can play this game back and forth on our phones (okay, Ipod for me since I'm not cool enough for a smart phone) and so we are always doing something together. We laugh a lot and crack jokes while chatting with each other. I love it because this game has led me to many more than just peachy moments! It's absolute peachy perfection! WOO!

If I ain't got you!

Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If  I ain't got you, Yeah
If I Ain't Got You
Alicia Keys
It's funny how you never expect yourself to feel like this, but then that one person comes along and changes everything. Since the day I found him, there has not been a day that I have not thought of him. Everyday we spend together makes me so much more grateful for the circumstances that brought us together. We had one class together senior year. That one class changed everything. It led me to my fairytale. I'm so lucky. I'm so lucky I have you. Nothing in this whole wide world don't mean a thing, if i ain't got you with me baby. <3.

(1-12) Days of Summer

Summer has started! It's been so great so far! I start college on June 20th which is a total bummer, but it's all good because that has meant that i've spent the very small amount of summer that i actually have doing really fun things! It's been ridiculous! I love it!

(1) Wednesday, June 1st: We kicked things off by having a campfire at Kelsi's house. We played sardines, roasted marshmallows, and fought over a bridge! :)

(2) Thursday, June 2nd: GRADUATION!

(3) Friday, June 3rd: We went to the all night party after graduation. We left at 11:30 on Thursday and then we got home at 5:30 in the morning! It was so much fun! Mini-golf, pizza, rides, and movies. Boyfriend gave me a gorgeous graduation gift! It was a great morning!

(4) Saturday, June 4th: Played night games with friends. Fell down a weed hill and landed in a hole! haha!
(5) Sunday, June 5th: Caught up on lots of lost sleep from over the weekend!

(6) Monday, June 6th:  My boyfriend came back from Colorado so we caught up after not seeing each other all weekend! We watched The Bachelorette (not our choice, his family's) and Taken. We laughed, talked, and were happy to see each other.

(7) Tuesday, June 7th: Went to the pool with my brother and cousin and then the boyfriend and I hung out again because i was ridiculously bored! It was good getting to talk to him for a long time.

(8) Wednesday, June 8th: Got a job! WOOHOO! I got a job down at BYU! YAY! I'm very excited to start in two weeks! I celebrated by shopping at Hollister, going to Cafe Rio with Kelsi and Annie, and then
 watching SYTYCD with them and my boyfriend! Yes, he totally watched it just for me! It was so fun!

(9) Thursday, June 9th: Annie had shoulder surgery. We all got her treats and went and visited her. It was the four girls: Kelsi, Annie, Brooklyn, and me. And then there was the four boys: Taylor, Quincy, Jared, and my boyfriend Brady! :) We watched a very creepy movie called The Others.

(10) Friday, June 10th: I went to dinner with my parents and old family friends. Then Brady and I went to Orange Leaf later and hung out again. I guess you could say that Brady and I see each other alot, but we really don't. This week was a funky exception. It was really fun!

(11) Saturday, June 11th: Brady and I went on a double date with Brooklyn and Jared. We saw the new X-men movie and went to dinner. It was fun going out not only another couple, but two really close friends. It was great!

(12) Sunday, June 12th: Packing for our trip to Island Park. I'm very excited to go but also very sad that i am going to be spending my last week before school starts away from my friends.

There was not a day so far this summer when i was not doing something so fun! Every single day was filled with moments of laughter! I guess I should just call this the Summer of The Peachies. Because life is definitely more than just peachy!

Happy As The Sun

 Happy as the sun, lighter than a feather
Walking on the clouds when we are together
Every day with you just keeps getting better
The world's as it should be, when are you here
 with me

Happy As The Sun
Look it up on YouTube. It's amazing

Moments Like When....

There are those moments when i want to pull my hair out. I know we've all had them. Like when school is just really crazy or when my siblings attack me with nasty snails dug out from the garden. But there are those moments that make all the hard times worth it. Moments like laughing so hard there are tears in your eyes because your boyfriend bowled around his back as a joke and it was a STRIKE! Moments like watching movies with your best friend. Moments like standing in the rain without any cares with that one person who understands you more than anyone else. It is those moments that make my life complete. It is those moments that make life more than just peachy. "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away". For me, I try to always cherish every moment of it as I can. Because life is not meant to be sad. It is meant to be fun, enjoyable, and fantastic. It is meant to be more than just peachy.

This is how I've felt everyday for the past little while. It's been absolutely splendid. Absolutely more than just peachy all because of YOU.

Christina Perri

I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart
But you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start

You put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go
You put your arms around me and I'm home

How many times will let you me change my mind and turn around
I can't decide if I'll let you save my life or if I'll drown

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, 'cause I'm already falling
I'll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I'm home

The world is coming down on me and I can't find a reason to be loved
I never wanna leave you but I can't make you bleed if I'm alone

You put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, 'cause I'm already falling
I'll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I'm home

I tried my best to never let you in to see the truth
And I've never opened up
I've never truly loved 'Till you put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me, 'cause I'm already falling
I'll never let a love get so close
You put your arms around me and I'm home

You put your arms around me and I'm home audio here. :)

March 2011

March is almost over and i barely remember what happened this month. I have been so busy, it is unreal. The first thing i did this month was quit my job so that i could play rugby! :) My schedule just was not working out and so i had to choose between the two and i chose rugby! YAY! Best decision ever! Then I turned eighteen! Oh YEAH! It was a great and very relaxed birthday! 
Then I played a lot of rugby and played in terrible weather but this is Utah. LOL! It will get better right?  
I also went to Spring Fling this month! It was really fun to go with the person that i did! :) 
I also got  my acceptance letter to here this month! That was awesome news! With the remaining few days of the month i will be doing the same things i've been doing all month and that is playing rugby, spending time with my friends, and enjoying life! It was every moment of this month that made life more than just peachy! I really am so blessed to be able to do the things that make me happy and to be able to spend so much time with the people that i care about. March was a good more than just peachy month!

Kia Kaha

I'm the brunette in the white jersey, bending down in the front of the scrum.
That's my position right there, prop, and i love it! 
Kia Kaha: It means BE STRONG! It is the motto i chose to live my life by when i started playing rugby. It is a motto my team and teammates follow. We are strong. We are United. We are the United Rugby Club's girl team. We will always Be Strong! 

We played in St. George this past weekend. It was wet, cold, stormy, and there was a lot of mud. It was the first two games of the year for us and we had hoped to take down our rival team Lowland and newfound opponents Snow Canyon. After sixty minutes of a grueling match in the mud and rain, we had lost, twice. But when we left that field that day after a second loss against Snow Canyon, we were not losers, we were winners. It was our positive attitude after that second game that made me feel like a winner. It was how i felt after being kind to my opponents and to my teammates. It was when we supported each other as our teammates hobbled off the field after a hard hit to the knee, ankle, and back. And it was when our United brothers performed THE HAKA for us, to show us that we are not only a team but a family. Rugby is not just my sport, it's my life. 

Rugby can be rough, rugby can be hard, and rugby can challenge even the most fit athletes. After recovering from foot surgery eight weeks ago, i was super scared to be out on that field. My running is not as fast as it should be, my strength is not where it should be, and my determination to win was not where it should have been. To my United Sisters i say this: I'm sorry i was not much help in those games. I feel like i let you down. Everyone says, "Don't play like a girl," as ironic as that is, it's true. I played like a girl this past weekend. I want you girls to know, that i will not be that girl anymore. Starting today, i promise to work so much harder so that i can be there for you girls, as a teammate and a sister. You are my rugby sisters. Girls i could not live without and girls i would never want to let down. So here it is, my promise to give it everything i got. I will no longer hold anything back out of fear for my foot. I will no longer hold anything back out of fear of getting hurt. Because i know that with the support of you girls, i can do anything, i can be strong. I hope every girl knows that they are strong, fearless, and brave. You are all girls i look up to everyday because you all are the best teammates in the world. Even if we never win a match, I know that we can always be winners, if we at least support each other, and help us each other Be Strong! Kia Kaha ladies!

Despicable Me

I have troubles falling asleep...always! It's freaky. So I end up with my iPod I'n bed. Lately I've been falling asleep to Despicable Me! It is one of the cutest funniest movies ever! I have the whole thing memorized! :)'s that good. The little minions are my favorite characters! They are so funny! Anyways....I'm going to go to sleep now....but only after I watch about half of that movie(that's when I finally fall asleep). :) It's more than just peachy! It's despicable!

The songs that are continuously playing on my ipod!

I'm somewhat addicted to music. Ok, more than somewhat. I am addicted to music. People who know me well, know that i can't make it through the day with my ipod. I wake up and listen to music. I go to school with my music. I do my homework while listening to music. I always have music on. I listen to music at night to help me fall asleep. Music is my life. These are my top favorite songs right now. They are what are helping me make it through these last few crazy, dramaful weeks. Yikes! Did i mention that i love music?

Nothing to Regret

My great grandma turned 100 in December. 100! Woo! That woman is amazing! But she's also lived life to the fullest. She had three sons and they had a bunch of sons. Although she isn't a member of my faith, she was one of the most wonderful people i have ever met and will ever know. She served people for the majority of her life. She was an incredible person. I'm incredibly grateful for her and the influnence she has had in my life. I'm also grateful that she remembers my name and who i am. For 100, she's pretty sane. LOL! 100 years is a really long time. It doesn't compare to forever, but it is a long time. Most americans don't make is to 100 and they don't make it to 100 with physical health like my great grandma Norma has. Life moves very quickly. I count down the days til i go to preference, I count down the days til rugby starts, and I count down the days til I turn eighteen. But in reality, those days that i wait forever for, come and go in the blink of an eye. They come and then they are gone. It's hard to say goodbye to the things that make me happy. It's hard to say goodbye to the things i love. It's hard to let go of regret. I don't want to look back and regret anything. I don't want to regret the days that i didn't take the time to say I love you to my family. I don't want to regret the friendships i let go to waste because i didn't take the time to make the effort to keep them alive. I don't want to regret the moments that i waited so long for. I want to enjoy them. So, it is with the fear of regret, that i move on, and do better. I will from this day, strive to make myself better in everything that i do. So that i don't regret the best moments of my life. I don't ever want to regret anything again. I want to know that i lived my life to the fullest and did the best that i could, just like my great grandma. Because if you regret everything for 100 years, then all you'll ever have is regret. I'm not here to regret my life, I'm here to live it. To me, that is absolutely More Than Just Peachy!

"Thank goodness for bright pink nail polish that matches!"

I look ridiculous here...this was probably like forty minutes after surgery and i was so out of big deal.
 I resent my job. I resent my job for a lot of things. I like my job but there are a lot of things that make it hard. One of the things I resent my job for is how it has affected my feet and my knees. I'm praying that my knees will be okay for rugby season which starts up in a month. :) After working retail over the holidays, I vowed not to ever do that again. Seriously.....I worked 55 hours in two weeks! Yikes! My body was desperately asking me for a break and it finally got one. Because of my job, I have developed bunions. Ya...gross. They are for old people! Lol! But then I found out that the bunions developed because the first metatarsal(aka big toe bone) and the fifth metatarsal(aka pinky toe bone) were going the complete opposite way than they are supposed to! Apparently my feet have always been like this. On New Year's Eve I had foot surgery to get my left foot fixed. The right will be done after rugby season! It was an overall positive experience. I'm alive, I have a couple of screws and a wire in my foot, and I have a bright pink cast covering my foot and leg. I also got a handicapped parking pass! Woo! Parking at school is splendid now. :) I'm recovering still and so I'm always tired which has made it hard to get homework done. Lol! But I'm looking forward to getting this cast off so I can get ready for rugby season. My mom also had foot surgery the same day I did and we have partied it up! Ok....more like she has(the drugs affected her way more than me)! But thank goodness for nail polish that matches my cast because my toes look awesome now...well the three of them that you can see out of the cast! :)

New Years Resolutions

It's a new year and it's a new chance to change a few things and do better. So i've come up with a few goals for myself this new year. I need to stop slacking off and start being better at being myself.

1. Be a better athlete! I want to be a better teammate, player, and i want to work harder. I'm determined to work very hard to be in better shape for the upcoming rugby season. I want to be the best that I can be and I want to win. I'm willing to do whatever it takes.

2. Be healthier. This one has a lot to do with the first one. In order to be a better athlete i need to be in better shape. That starts with my diet and how well I'm taking care of myself. I want to live a healthier lifestyle so i can feel better and do better in rugby. This includes very low amounts of sugar and no more caffeine or carbonation. I'm not addicted to caffeine but I am to carbonation. I have a habit of picking up a cherry lime-aid from Sonic on days that i work. It tastes good but it's definitely not good for me.

3. Be a better student. I need to be ready for college and it's time to stop slacking off. I want to make sure i am remebering everything that i'm learning from my classes. Somedays i feel like it all goes in one ear and then out the other. haha!

4. Be more organized. My life is crazy. I'm busy working, dealing with school, and getting ready for college. I want to be more organized so that my life will be a little bit more in order and not so crazy.

5. Be a better blogger. I have slacked off with this blog for a long time. I've noticed that this is a stress releiver for me. I love blogging because i can write about whatever i want. For the new year i'm going to try to blog at least once a week. This blogging thing has helped keep me sane. Hehe! I love it! It will be good if i'm posting once a week, i won't be so crazed, if i do keep posting. ha!

6. Be more spiritual. I am LDS and there are just some things that i'm really bad at doing everyday. This year is going to be the year where i will work hard and really prepare myself spiritually for life on my own. I'm very excited to get my personal progress finished. I have been working hard on that for the past few months and i need to be finished by the time i'm eighteen. I have a long way to go to finish that on time. But I am confident i can accomplish that goal. I love personal progress and the difference it has made in my life. It has helped me become closer to my Father in Heaven and i'm so grateful for that. I'm so grateful for the blessings of the gospel in my life. I can't imagine where i would be without it. So this year I want to continue to build my testimony.

I hope everyone had a great holiday. I know i did. I spent the majority of it working but then i had foot surgery on New Years Eve. These past few days of relaxing and rest have been amazing. My family has been so good to me. They have waited on me hand and foot and have made me so comfortable while i've been inmobile. I'm grateful for my family. They are amazing! I hope that if you set new years resolutions also that you'll be able to acheive them. I hope i can acheive my goals also, i'm determined to do so. Now it's back to reality, school starts tommorow. Yikes! :)
