SiSTeRS :)

ToDaY i aM GRaTeFuL FoR 
My oNe aND oNLy SiSTeR. 

Why, you may ask. Well let me tell you :)

1. Because we were the first two kids in our family, so I'm pretty sure that's grounds for automatic best friends.

2. Because when she learned to tie her shoes before I did, she taught me how. 
3. Because being crazy is something we'll probably never outgrow. 

4. Because we can play DDR for hours. 
5. Because she's even more obsessed with taking pictures than I am.
6. Because she loves the outdoors almost as much as I do. 

7. Because when I need to vent she'll let me.
8. Because she can talk me into doing things I would probably never have done before (aka. eating termites in Belize).
9. Because she also gets a kick out of pranking me.
10. Because even when I act like she's not right, she usually is.
11. Because we both got a heavy dose of the traveling gene!

12. Because she'll always be there,

THe FaCeBooK BiRTHDaY i NeVeR HaD.

Thanks to my LoVeLy CouSiN,
today was my

+ all the text messages. 

Ya know, it's actually a really good prank. 
Let me tell you why.
When you change someones birthday to the very next day, 
facebook won't let you change it back. 
At least not for a day.
(Apparently you can only change your birthday every so often)

I'm thinking that since I didn't have a facebook on my last birthday though, 
that I'll just count all the 
from today for that birthday instead :) 

So thank you all for the HaPPy BiRTHDaYS! 

CaNDaCe will now be giving you all free BRiCK oVeN for any embarrassment this may have caused you :)

She will also be throwing me the best party ever on my real birthday,
aPRiL 20. 
You are all invited!
Candace will also be supplying everything! 
So come hungry!!  

For all that I am 

oh, and I'm also grateful for 
SWeeT SWeeT ReVeNGe!
anyone who would like to assist me in doing such is more than welcome!

That's what I'm grateful for today.


There is just something about the demeanor of those cute people (the ones with just a few more years on their plate) that you can't help but to love. 

Today during our break at work
Erin and I 
went down to the
BYU Creamery
to get some milk.
(it's a million times cheaper there!)

In front of us at the checkout was the 
He was buying some milk and ice cream.

As the worker was ringing up his stuff he asked
"Now this is the ice cream that helps you to loose weight right?"

Of course she answered
"It most certainly is!"

Knowing she was joking, he went on to ask,
"Now, would you say that works better with cookies?"

"A  guaranteed 25 pounds!"
she replied.

We all had a good laugh and he went on his way.

After we had bought Erin's milk, we ran into him outside. 
He was struggling to maneuver his cart, 
so we asked if we could help.

That quickly turned into more joking, 
and smiles from ear to ear. 

  You know those times where you meet someone and you just want to keep them in your pocket forever?

That is exactly what I wanted to do right there. 

It happens all the time at work. 

Maybe that's part of the reason I love doing what I do. 
I get to be around people like that all the time! 

So hear's to the little old man at the creamery. 
May you always keep those around you smiling :)

MaKe eVeRy DaY THe BeST DaY eVeR

Maybe it's because we've actually hit
Maybe it's because it's really what I needed to hear. 


Up until today I had never ever thought about how a lack of gratitude and fear go hand in hand.  I had always placed them in two completely separate sheets of paper. But in a way, they really do fit. 

I think for most it begins with 
A fear causes us to put up walls. 
A fear that we hide behind because it feels safer. 
But that in turn causes us to feel 
It's easy to feel like you have somehow become broken.
That you can't be fixed because you are stuck behind these walls. 
We can see the opportunities in front of us, but we still choose to let them pass by.
Truth be told, it's easier that way. 
Yet we still 
WiSH We HaD MoRe.
But when that wish isn't fulfilled, usually because we aren't willing to do anything about it,
we suddenly find ourselves with feelings of

The great thing is that once we come to realize that, it becomes so much easier to fix. 

So this is my goal.
