Oh to be a Beckert

I'm sure you've all wondered....
"What is it like to be a Beckert????"
Well let me just tell you that it is pretty amazing.  
Beckert family reunions only happen every two years and this year was fortunate enough to be a year for a reunion! So here are some pictures that capture the true essence of Beckert-am.

"This is going to be the kind of job where I take aspirin---- A LOT"
-Boy Meets World

Today was my first day of work!! I'm pretty lucky to have the job that I have because A) I'm used to it and 2)I love it and C)It's great preparation for my future career.  However, after a day filled with 90 active children, I'm a little sore.  But's it's a good kind of sore.  

Speaking of aspirin...{this really has nothing to do with aspirin} I've been thinking a lot about break-ups today.  I've seen a lot of friends go through break-ups and seen the emotional toll it takes on them.  I've never actually been through a break up before.  I've had my heart broken in plenty of other ways however I've never actually been....DUMPED.  Which has led me to be thinking about love.  What is love?  
I've never actually been IN love.  There are plenty of people in my life whom I love but none that I've ever been IN love with. There have been times when I've thought I was IN love, only to find out I wasn't or he wasn't... 

When I think of being IN love this is what I feel like it means to me....
~ laughing about something only we would think is funny
~ Cuddling while watching TV shows
~ Kisses on the forehead that mean "everything is going to be ok"  
~ balancing a checkbook together
~ painting your living room
~ cuddling in a tent while it rains
~ playing baseball with nieces and nephews
~ tickling his back during sacrament meeting
~ having family prayer
~ watching fire works together
~ sitting together in the house of the Lord

Someday,  I will be IN love.  Someday, I will experience these and many more amazing things with my son of God.  Someday, I will look back and not know what life was without him.  

Meanwhile I'm waiting for my someday,  I'm going to keep living in the moment and LOVING the blessings and life I've been given.

Tis the Season

Whose excited????
Ok so remember last year when I was totally fan-girling about this beaut??  I loved him.  I still do love him.  There is just something about him that makes me crazy.  Hmmm

Anyway they announced the top twenty today and I'm pretty excited to get the competition rolling.  After I really see them all dance next week, hopefully I will have my favorites picked out.  Currently I really like Wadi.  But stay tuned because I'll most likely be able to pick the winner like last time. :)

Henna. Whipping Cream.


Bhavna does henna tatoos like a pro.  She practiced on me and I think it looks pretty cool. :)  If you want your own awesome henna just let me know and I'll give you her info!

Whipping Cream.
My apartment had smelled nasty ever since I moved in.  I knew the rotten stench had to be coming from my fridge.  I searched and searched for the culprit and finally found it the other day.  A carton of whipping cream.  That had expired on........NOVEMBER 6!! I seriously dry heaved and then thought about throwing it in the trash but I didn't know if my roommate was like saving it for a purpose.  But I just couldn't take it anymore and yesterday, I tossed it away.  It is so nice not to smell that all the time.

Random fact

My skirt fell off as I was walking in line at my high school graduation.

The line was held up for a moment so I could pick my clothing up off the floor.

Luckily those robes are down to the knee.

I walked across the ramp to shake the hands of the principals and super-intendants with my free hand holding up my skirt so it didn't fall again.

Good times :)
See how I'm trying to hold up my skirt under the robe...Yup FAIL

at my little sister

She looks good no? She has lost a lot of weight and you can tell that she feels a lot better about herself.  While spending some time with her this last little while, I thought to myself.....
I could do that too
I've also thought that every time I see my amazing friend Stephanie.  
I could do that too
And I'm going to.  And lucky for you I'm going to blog about it....:) 
Meet my weight loss blog. 
You should check it out :) 

Don't worry I'm still going to blog on this blog....LUCKY YOU! 

Tell the world...

I'm comin home.
I've been wondering where home is for me lately.
Is it my parents house? Is it at my apartment in Logan? Who really knows....
None the less I spent the last couple weeks at my parents house which when I'm there is home for me :) It was a good time!  However, I missed Logan.  One of the main reasons I missed living here in L-town is because you NEVER have to drive on the freeway.  It's a beautiful thing.  When I'm in P-town, the only place you can go really w/out getting on the free way is grocery shopping....or to the movies.  If you want to go out to eat anywhere that's not Mexican---freeway.  If you want to catch the awesome sale at Old Navy---freeway.  If you want to go to a dollar movie---freeway.  Get it? It's not fun.  I missed being able to just kick it down to Main Street and have anything I needed right down the road.  But I'm back!

While I was home, I did some fun stuff.  I was REALLY bad at taking pictures of the events so I'll try my best to get everything documented....

~ I worked at the beloved flower shop
~ Had a wonderful memorial day BBQ
~ Helped my mom pack up her classroom
~ Spent time with the grandparents
~ Spent some great times with the BFF
~ My sister's 24th b-day
~ My brothers seminary graduation, high school graduation, and his ordination to become an elder

Anyway... like I said I was really bad at taking pictures.  But alas I'm glad to be back home in Logan!! :)
