You know when you said only when heck frezees over....

Well it froze over. Well to southern Arizona. Dang climate change. On the plus side I got great pictures of Christian and Chandler.

Yesterday, I got a job in Phoenix, it wasn't what I expected and was very off. I chose to listen to the spirit and I quit in the same day that I started. It was a bit hard giving up a job that payed well, but it felt so good knowing that I wouldn't be going back. I am glad that all of my family had the exact same thoughts and were not okay with me working there and supported my decision to quit (not that I really started). Of all of the things that I saw and experienced I couldn't be happier that I quit. It looks like its a bit to late to find a job before I go back to school, on the bright side I have gotten to spend time with  my family and I go back to school in April.

30 days of love {day 24}

Day 24 - A picture of something you wish you could change.

 The world. No I'm not trying to create world peace, that in itself would cause a lot of war to create world peace ... well to get back on subject here, I would like to change the world for the better. Well this is one better suited for a one on one conversation. Sometimes one persons life is the world, their world and possibly others. 

30 days of love {day 23}

Day 23 - A picture of your favorite book.

30 days of love {day 22}

Day 22 - A picture of something you wish you were better at.

 Multiple choice. I will always know the material better than how I do on multiple choice test. I can whip out an essay like none other and impress a professor but those darn bubbles..... not so much. Granted I still get good grades but these seem to be a bit of a problem for me. Luckily real life isn't about filling in bubbles to get a grade and this is something I will have to deal with while in school.

30 days of love {day 21}

Day 21 - A picture of something you wish you could forget.

Honestly its pretty easy for me to forget things.... if i don't want to remember it I don't. I shut it out, I block it from my memory, I like to stay positive.  But this is the picture I chose and you would have no idea unless you were extremely close to me. I wish I could forget the position I put myself in. 

30 days of love {day 20}

Day 20 - A picture of somewhere you'd love to travel.

 Okay, so I cheat I know. I'm sorry. This is my way of saying I would love to travel all over the world. Asain, tropical, european.... I would just really love to see the world in general. Some of my top destinations would be Japan, Philippines, China, India.

30 days of love {day 19}

Day 19 - A picture of you when you were little.

 Instead of digging out an old photo album I took a picture of this picture on my Mom's night stand. My mommy still loves me enough to have my picture on her nightstand.

30 days of love {day 18]

Day 18 - A picture of your biggest insecurity.
Wow well this 30 days of love thing is certainly getting personal. But here you have it my biggest insecurity... thats right men, and in numbers. Men will freak me out, after all the experiences I have had... There is so many factors, I'm afraid of hurting them. I hope those reading don't find this too ridiculous but its true. I can get freaked out easily when there is a lot of men after me... I know some girls would view this as a good thing; but it does nothing but freak me out. I feel ambushed, and trapped. I'm honestly a one man type of girl now ... and when I sometimes have as many as I do after me ... I don't even know what I want, I become afraid and I don't want to do anything but hide in a hole and not come out. I am sorry if these seems ridiculous but this real to me. And trust me going to BYUI doesn't help.  (I've actually come up with methods to help scare guys away). And about now I'm kinda wishing I would have lied and told you that some other thing is my biggest insecurity.

30 days of love {day 17}

Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently.

Mission calls. I honestly didn't get to have the experience when I was younger say in high school to see my friends leave on missions and appreciate it mainly due to my Dad's family not being to active in church. But I have seen so many of my friends leave on missions and so many of my girls are going out on missions now and I am so proud of them. A mission is such a blessing in so many lives.  

30 days of love {day 16}

Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you.

This is a picture of my Mother. She inspires me in many ways and I am so much like her in a lot of ways and I am proud to say that.  

30 days of love {day 15}

Day 15 - A picture of something you want to do before you die.

I want to travel the world. I would love to see the world the good and bad. I would love to see the world and it would be even better if I could do that with someone I love if it is a friend I love or someone more. 
Day 14 - A picture of someone you could never imagine your life without.

I have so many wonderful people in my life, and I have been so lucky to find them. I hope they all stay in my life in years to come. But one person in particular popped in my head as I thought about all the people in my life and that is Christ. I can't picture where I would be without him, nor do I want to. 

30 days of love {day 13}

Day 13 - A picture of your favorite band or artist.
 Linkin Park is my favorite artist. I love so many different bands and artists but this one is my favorite. Linkin Park was my discovery of music, its what brought me into the world of music. Their album metora is still my favorite. 

30 days of love {day 12}

Day 12 - A picture of something you love.

Yes, this is a utterly ridiculous picture of me. But it signifies something I love; which is laughter. I love the sound of it, it brings joy and honestly it the best pictures are always taken when people are laughing... okay this picture is not a good example of that, but you get the picture. I love laughter. 

30 days of love {day 11}

Day 11 - A picture of something you hate.

PACKING. I hate packing. It freaks me out more than finals every semester. And I really suck at it. 

30 days of love {day 10}

Day 10 - A picture of the person you do the most stupid things with.

This is Paul. He is one of my best friends. When I'm at school usually I'm overloaded but we do tend to do some stupid things together when we hang out, and they have been great nights. My mind somehow goes to a day last semester where we went off-roading in the middle of the night on a mountain, needless to say there were a lot of cows and a few close calls; and the night did get a little crazier but I won't go into that.  I wish we could have more but sadly he just recently left BYUI to coach football on a college level.  

30 days of love {day 9}

Day 09 - A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most.

This is Ty. He is my best friend we are so alike he feels like my brother. Even if he doesn't know it he's gotten me through more than anyone else, thinking back on some moments I don't know how he did it and I can't believe that he did. I'm not very good at relying on others or letting people take care of me. But he's the probably one of the only people if not the only person I can rely on no matter what, and someone I will actually let take care of me. He is amazing even if I haven't known him as long as others. 

30 days of love {day 8}

Day 08 - A picture that makes you laugh.
The picture that I originally wanted to put shouldn't be put on the internet... so here's another. This is my little brother Bowen. I love him, and he is so silly. He does so many things that makes me laugh and this is just another example of that. 

30 days of love {day 7}

Day 07 - A picture of your most treasured item.

My most treasured item is my heart. It quite honestly is the hardest thing for me to give away, the thing that can cause the most happiness, and the most pain. Its something that much more important than any material item I could possibly have. I know this is probably not what is expected to be here, but is and for whatever rules I am breaking; this is me and this is how this post is going to go.  

30 days of love {day 6}

Day 06 - A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day.

I'm completely serious about this one. I would love to trade places with Frances Monson for a day. I would LOVE to be in her place for a day and experience what it would be like to be around such spiritually strong people, this would be ideal. I would love to be around the prophet of God and be able to touch more lives. 

30 days of love {day 5}

Day 05 - A picture of your favorite memory.

Yes, I know it said a picture. But since when I am one to follow rules so trivial? I chose three all from the same moment in time.  This is when I got to see my sisters again, I was so excited. It was so good to see them again. It had been over eight months that I had seen my sisters (due to custody issues of course). It was such a blessing to be able to see them at this time. 

30 days of love {day 4}

Day 04 - A picture of your favorite night.

To be honest I've had so many great nights and not all of them had pictures, but this is definitely one of my favorites. Well yes this does look like what it is...  Well of course I am mormon so things for my wonderful friends change a bit when I am around so instead of beer or vodka for drinking games redbull was a substitute.

30 days of love {day 3}

Day 3 is a picture of your favorite show.

Right now one of my favorite shows right now is Nikita. Its pretty kick butt and I love the action, but the ratings are looking as good as they should be, I am hoping the show continues; I also realized it was a remake of something called le-feme nikita.

30 days of love {day 2}

Day 2 - A picture of you and the person you have been close with for the longest.

The person I have been closest with the longest is my little sister Victoria. We had quite a lot of fun taking pictures here, back in 2008.

P is for puppy as you know we have got our new puppy. He is a sliver fawn English Mastiff, he is 8 weeks old right now and he is pretty small now in comparison to what he will be. He is not quite yet a 200 pound dog. He is quite adorable and the boys seem to have way to much fun with him. They also tend to be a little rough as you can see.

 We are loving having another member of the family.

On another note, Bo and Emily's Dads funeral was today and I hope thoughts and prayers go out to them.

Chantel and I are having fun together which is great, I am helping her be a bit more social.

And for another stressful part of life.... my car dying. Normally it wouldn't be as big of a deal .... but my car is a Saturn and of course they no longer make any parts anymore, to make this a big shorter... my car will cost more than it is worth to fix it. That tends to be a bit of a problem go figure. So car is dead and I am trying to figure how to deal with this. I'm not liking it to much so far. But thankfully I'm a lot more calm about the situation and I am trying to accept my options.

P is for puppy.

We just recently got our new puppy. He is a English Mastiff... he is small for now. He is only 8 weeks at the moment
