The Gift

Are you thinking it's about time you buy me a present???
You are in luck!
 I did some research and found THE GIFT that would possibly be the BEST thing I've ever received.  
or this

If you are confused as to why these shirts would make me smile and I'd probably wear them EVERYDAY watch these clips and then repent and forget about the rest of your responsibilities and catch up with Cory and good ol' Topanga.  Trust me it's worth it.

Reason #4,909,090

I'd make a good wife....

I'm really really good at homey-type responsibilities.

Such as putting clean laundry away....or rather making mountains out of it....
Either way I don't see why anyone wouldn't want to live with this for all eternity...

I've seen a few other bloggas do this so I'm going to follow the crowd and do it...
Awkward and Awesome


  • Sitting next to the girl in the international lounge who chews like a camel and blows her nose like a fog horn
  • Realizing that a child I had always thought was a girl was actually a boy. 
  • Getting to campus to realize I was wearing different jeans than I thought I was resulting in an embarrassing floods situation
  • The couple who thinks it is appropriate to practically make love in the writing lab.
  • First graders who pass gas on the reading rug
  • Reading English papers about the benefits of breast implants
  • The reoccurring dream I have where I'm in class and the chairs are toilet seats and I use the bathroom in front of the whole class....it leaves me very distraught. 

  • Doing the full power climb in spinning today for the second time
  • Playing ultimate frisbee
  • Twizzle berry!
  •  Relief Society enrichment night
  • A first grader telling me I have the biggest girl muscles ever
  • Realizing that mostly a lot of awkward things happen to me
Now I'm going to bed.  :)

I'm missing her today.  I know that if she were still here, I probably wouldn't think anything of it.  But since she isn't I can't stop thinking about her.  I still don't know why the Lord decided to take her, but I'm not bitter about it anymore.  I know that is because she wouldn't want me to be bitter.  I hope she knows the impact she had on my life.  I hope she knows how much she means to me.  I hope she knows how much I love her.

I still remember the day over a year ago when I heard that she was gone.  It was a call I hoped I'd never receive, and it was completely unexpected.  I had never felt so alone and "robbed" in my life.  I immediately regretted not keeping in better contact with her after I moved away. I immediately thought of her sweet husband and the example this couple had been to me.  I just sat in my dorm room and bawled and bawled and bawled.

Her funeral was the hardest hour of my life. She was an amazing example to so many people.  She lived a life that reflected the Savior in so many ways.  Her testimony changed lives.  I know from experience.

Every time I drive past her house on the way to mine, the sweet memory of the hours I spent in her living room speak comfort to my heart. I think of the smell of cleanliness and the outdoors that filled that home that was always filled with the spirit.  I think of her laugh.  I think of the time at girl's camp where I watched her play butt charades and could not stop laughing.  I think of her hilarious peanut gallery comments during ward choir practice.

She was an angel to me in my life and now she is an angel serving in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Indeed heaven never seems closer than when we see the love of God manifested in the kindness and devotion of people so good and so pure that angelic is the only word that comes to mind.
-Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

Count your blessings...

Does the song literally mean to count them one-by-one...because I kinda want to.  I'm so blessed! Basically, the church is true and the Lord knows me better than I know myself. And it's a good thing too.

So I got a job for the summer! A bomb diggity job.  Like the one I have now except for fun ALL the TIME! I'm so grateful.

Today I am frustrated.

But first...5 awesome things that have made me happy today...
   1.....being home with the fam
   2.....Watching Cam's baseball game
   3.....Cam hitting the winning hit!!
   4.....General Conference
   5.....Eating asparagus...yummm

Now frustration. So since I deactivated my facebook (for long complicated dumb reasons), I've resorted to doing some heavy blog stalking.  I'm not proud but I'm also not in denial.  Anyway I found a blog of a girl I recognized from one of my classes last semester.  She's pretty funny and I enjoyed her blog.  But I was frustrated because she wrote that three boys had hit on her that day.  I'm not exactly frustrated that boys were hitting on her, because she's a cute girl and she totally deserves an awesome man, the frustration is coming from the fact that I can't remember the last time a boy (over the age of 7) hit on me.  Seriously! Why? It's a very frustrating ordeal.  I would love to have men hit on me.....they just don't.  Nuff said.

I'm also frustrated because I found the cutest mustard yellowy dress the other day, and it didn't fit.  Story. Of. My. Life.  However, now I am obsessed with mustard yellow (hence the new blog design) and can't get my mind off the fact that I want ok actually need a mustard yellow outfit....even just a cardigan would be lovely! If anyone knows or sees of any adorable mustard yellow clothing pah-lease let me know where!

That's all.  Enjoy this awesome spiritual weekend!! I sure am! :)

It's his day...

His day of birth...on this earth
to my awesome little brother!!
If he knew I was writing this he'd probably punch me in the arm and roll his eyes.  nbd

Today he is 18.  He is an adult.  Weird.  Seems like only yesterday he was that cute chubby cheeked little baby. :) I love this kid so much and here are a few (18) reasons why....

His name is Cameron Jason but we call him CJ
He was born on April Fools day
He thinks he's pretty much hot stuff

He used to think his ribs were his six pack
Now he has a real six pack

He loves the TV show Reba
his humor is mostly inspired by Van on the show
He has an awesome singing voice
In fact, he thinks his falsetto matches Miley Cyrus's voice perfectly

He falls asleep in the weirdest positions in the car
He EATS (Like really...he once had 2 frozen burritos as an appetizer to his family size frozen pizza)
He can play "God Speed the Right" on the piano

He thought he was a miscarriage
He holds the priesthood
He plays sports
He plays baseball video games during baseball season and basketball video games during basketball season

He's funny
He's trying to grow a chin beard.  =)

Love Ya Cam!
