A Little Update

I love being an aunt to these sweet girls so much. I hope I love my own kids as much as I love them ;-)

Story of My Life

This quote perfectly describes me.

It’s not that I can’t fall in love. It’s really that I can’t help falling in love with too many things all at once. So, you must understand why I can’t distinguish between what’s platonic and what isn’t, because it’s all too much and not enough at the same time.
Jack Kerouac

dare to love again

"I can tell you that you will have your heart broken more by the people you love than by the people you hate. But you must still dare to love. The rewards are worth far more than the risks."
Margaret Peterson Haddix {via torface}
Heartbreak is one of the worst feelings in the world. The end. But playing halo and watching sappy movies with good friends helps.

The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.
Fernando Pessoa{via torface}

Don't Give Up

Everything in life that is good is worth working for.

" still and know that I am God." D&C 101:16

Sometimes we need to just chill and realize that God has a plan for us. And His timing is perfect. That definitely brings me comfort.

My cute brother Matt and {now sister in law} Katelin got married on September 28th in the Newport Beach LDS Temple in Newport, California. It was BEAUTIFUL! Katelin did an AMAZING job with all of the decorations at the reception. Everything turned out perfect! I'm so happy for them. It was such a special celebration and I {obviously} was in heaven having my whole family together! I am so grateful for God's plan and for the role families play in His plan. I am so thankful that families can be together forever. Congrats to Matt and Katelin on starting their family. Here's to forever!

You Can Laugh

This one time at my best friend Kumi's wedding the other bridesmaids and I decided it would be fun to make a scene during the bouquet toss.

Needless to say... I caught the bouquet.

There is so Much More

Sometimes, a lot of times I feel like there's so much more to life than what I'm doing. Ya life is great, but I'm yearning for something more than what my daily schedule consists of. 

Should I go study abroad in London?
Study in Italy?
Backpack through Europe?
Teach English in China?
Join the peace corps?
Intern in DC?
Move to NY just because?
Intern in Indy? 
Move back to Arizona?
Do humanitarian work in South America?
Move to Alaska and turn granola?
Go to school in Hawaii?
Go on a mission {don't worry people I wouldn't really tease myself or you with the idea of it again}

I like the options. I'm being optimistic and saying that one or two or three or all of these ideas WILL happen sometime in my life, and until they do I'll just dream of them on the daily.

Aggies vs the Utes

Remember that one time the Aggies beat the Utes for the first time in 15 years in overtime on Friday night? 
I do. Go Aggies!

I love

I love leaving for work late because I got no sleep and parking somewhere where I'm just waiting to walk out to a ticket on my car because I couldn't find a parking spot. And I love having to call the police on some guy who is looking at inappropriate pictures on the public computers at work. (note the sarcasm please)

I want a nap...

What I really do love is that my cousin and his gf are coming up for the game tonight vs the U. 
And I love that some friends and I camped out on campus last night with hundreds of students so we could get good seats at the game tonight. I loved it even though I woke up to a siren going off and everyone running around thinking the siren meant they had to get in line to get a wrist band to get into the game..nice prank people. I loved it even though I woke up to "Clark" and "Natalie" being so loud in the tent next to us. I loved it even though I woke up to hundreds of people playing the "who can scream the inappropriate word loudest" game. It was fun. Nights like that make me glad I'm still a student and get to have fun nights where I get no sleep and I don't have to worry about waking up in the morning and going to my big girl job all day. {Yes, I said it makes me glad to be a student...don't worry people, I still hate school}
blurry, but you get the picture
 {post script} My roomie and I went and helped out with the Romney Ryan campaign here in Logan. It was really fun. We just made calls to swing states to see where they need better campaigning and to know who we can call to make sure they get to their right polling locations and get their vote in for Mitt. It's cool to be involved and I felt so patriotic. They need volunteers. Comment if you want more info on helping out.

I am a big supporter of Romney and I love America, and I love that everyone has the right to their own opinion. No matter who you'll be voting for, I'd highly recommend getting involved in their campaign. It will make you happy!
