a burning sensation

in my eyes. no joke. i was up really late last night with one of my bestest friends from HS, we'll call her sister missionary b/c she just got her call to seattle, WA spanish speaking!! I'm so excited for her! anyways, so sister missionary and friends and i all went country dancing last night. SO much fun...minus the fact that i didn't get to bed until 1am this was a BLAST!

but now...i'm living with the consequences. my eyes hurt (and have hurt all day long.) i knew this would be the case, so i wore my glasses instead of my contacts, but still. they hurt. and i am so so soooo tired, it's not even funny. in fact my plan for this evening: go home, eat dinner, read a book and go to bed. even though i would love to hang with my boy, i'm not up for it. unless he calls me. which i don't think he will. he's been super busy and his roommate leaves tomorrow and who knows when they'll see each other again. but yeah...bed. sleep. nap. it all sounds so good to me right now.

home, home on the range

i love coming home, as long as i don't have to do it all the time, i greatly enjoy spending time with my family. yesterday, after my 7 peaks trip got canceled, my mom decided to come up to provo and we went to the mall to play. bath and body works is having their huge annual sale, and this is when i stock up on all my lotions from there. SO we went to the mall and played and then we came home and then my little bro and i went swimming. He's getting so tall (he's taller than me!) and he's only 14, but i guess he looks older to other people, or i look younger, or a combination of both, because people thought that i was his GIRLFRIEND! seriously! when we told this person who asked that we were brother and sister, they didn't believe us. It was kind of funny, and kind of sick at the same time. I mean really, he's 14.5 and I'm 21. That's just wrong. sigh, oh well...maybe when i'm 40 i'll look 30, and i'll be okay with that. :P

so anywho, today is father's day, and let me just say that I LOVE MY DAD! he's pretty much my hero, and one of the most amazing men in my life. he's great. so i'm excited to be home and spend time with my family. :D huzzah!

something i discovered today

i discovered how much i really absolutely and truly love this gospel. HOW TRUE IT IS! i can not stress that fact enough. This is the true church. and i know that with all my heart. all of it, not part of it, or even just a little bit of it, but all of it. This realization came to me as I was reading the conference issue of the Ensign. This is a great issue, and I love reading it. While I was reading it I had the sudden desire for it to be conference time again. I love that time of year where I sit at home, or even better in the conference center for 8 hours of conference goodness. i just love hearing from the general authorities and the great globs of information that they have for me, loads of inspiration from the Lord. It's such GREAT stuff!!! I love also that by being a young single adult there are monthly firesides where a different general authority speaks specifically to my age group each month September-May. too bad it's now June and i have to wait 3 months for that kind of guidance, but at the same time, this is a great time to just sit and reflect on the words that have been said, and double check myself and see if i'm following the counsel given to me. so there you go. my random thoughts of the evening. good night!!

Saturday, June 09, 2007


so i went to a birthday party up the canyon tonight. it was a lot of fun, but there was one downside...there was a bonfire. now actually, i love bonfires. I think they are fun. and fire is so- mesmerizing. BUT...when you get home you smell like campfire smoke. which is a fun smell while you are up the canyon at the fire...then it's good. but after one gets home? not so much. i took a shower immediately and also started my laundry. after my shower i swore that my room still smelled like campfire smoke so i sprayed the room down with febreze. and yet my nose still thinks it smells like campfire smoke. it must be some strange pyschological issue. huh. overall though, i had a blast hanging out by the campfire. maybe it was the company? lol. so yeah. right now i'm doing laundry, then i'll do my scripture study and such and then it will be off to bed. i've had a fairly early weekend this weekend, but that's a good thing. g'night!

Friday, June 08, 2007

so yeah...

it was deathly quiet this afternoon at work, but i was reading a book, and then i took a ten minute nap and i didn't feel like posting. but i do right now. so here i am. 10 o'clock on a Friday night. the boy is studying econ like a mad fiend for his test tomorrow night, and me, well I mopped my kitchen floor, started my acc. 200 class (which my prof. is semi-entertaining but at the same time I'm praying i can get through all 15 lessons without dying first. :P) , watched a bazillion Scrubs episodes and made breakfast for dinner. so a pretty accomplished evening if i do say so myself. I'm hoping to take a ballet class in the morning, but I'm not sure it's going to happen. i want it to though, if that counts for anything. :)

I've had the strange urge to clean a lot the past couple of days (thus why i mopped the kitchen. i don't just do that type of stuff...unless it's required for cleaning checks or something. but i don't have those here.) anyways...i was reflecting on why i caught the cleaning bug. and i think it's for two reasons. 1) a lot of the things that need to be cleaned haven't in who knows how long, and it's driving me crazy. 2) i think it's the rain. there is something cleansing about the rain and the way it turns the whole world into a cleaner, fresher place. and since the outside is cleaner and fresher, the inside of my world should be too. so here i am on a Friday night claiming i mopped the floor. and i did. and it needed it bad. hurray for no more sticky kitchen floor. ick.

speaking of cleaning the inside of my world I've been doing a lot of reflecting on my life recently. it's weird how change makes one want to do that. i have some new books checked out that i am really excited about reading. i think it's going to be good for me. also, with some down time to myself i can really think about how i am doing as a person. and you know what? i think I'm doing pretty darn good! :D

us silly mormons

so sometimes we have really funny stories about things that happen in sacrament meeting. well, through another blog that i read, i was directed to this blog:
while the story that is featured is hilarious, the comments were also great. my all-time favorite has to be this one please enjoy for your tuesday laughter of the day.

"in testimony meeting in my ward in frenchtown montana about 15 years ago, a lady got up to bear her testimony. she started off with the typical stuff, but then it got really emotional about how bad her life had been lately and how much she’d been struggling. then she said that she had fallen walking down the stairs to her car, and turned and showed everyone the mud on the back of her dress. then she said something to the effect of “and as i was driving to church this morning, i ran over this little critter.” and she pulled a live, but badly maimed, squirrel from her pocket. she gently stroked it as she finished bearing her testimony. then she put the little critter back in her sweater pocket, and went back to the pew and sat down like it was the most normal thing in the world to have a squirrel with its guts hanging out just sitting there writhing in your pocket."

my second favorite has to be this one:
"In another area, a kid that had just been baptized walked to the top stair of the font, turned around, let out a huge Tarzan yell, and did a near perfect swan dive back into the font."

he he he

well, i really can't complain about life these days. it's treating me really, really well! i think that has something to do with the fact that i'm now dating a boy. :) the boy is really cute, super nice, and absolutely wonderful all the way around. and....he kissed me last night. the last time i kissed a boy was T* in April, I also kissed him in December of '05 and before that it was my hs bf in may of '04. so really...the last time i kissed a boy i was dating was 3 years ago! how crazy is that??? but i think the best ever...has to be the current boy, by far. huzzah. that is all. :D
