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.
