Throwback to the flower pants

I was looking through some old pictures today and found this little gem. Check out those pants! I actually remember wearing those. I also remember thinking I was hot stuff. If only I knew better.

Growing up and moving on

I am excited to graduate!

But sometimes I feel sad that I am graduating this semester.

My roommates are starting to look for housing for next year and it feels weird that I'm not.

I'm looking for jobs instead.

I am really going to miss college.

It was an awesome week

So last week I got back from Florida which was awesome itself. And then the week just kept being awesome. Here are some of the awesome things that happened.

1) I went to a meeting for my internship and all we did was brainstorm ideas for Facebook posts.

2) Class was canceled.

3) I got some much needed alone time to catch up on a few things.

4) I was assigned certain beats (topics) to cover on Twitter for my internship.

5) My car got stuck in the snow today. Not awesome. But I was able to get it out by myself. Yay for independence.

6) I talked to him at church today.

7) My patriarchal blessing arrived in the mail. (I lost the folder with the original in it in a box somewhere at my parents' house.)

How was your week awesome?

Baby it's cold outside.

This morning I rolled over in bed to check my phone like I do every morning. My twitter timeline was full of tweets about bad weather, iced-over roads, closed canyons and many accidents. Blah. It's going to be one those days I thought. I wanted nothing more than to go back to sleep in my warm bed. I thought about skipping class for about two seconds but because I missed classes on Tuesday I figured I better be a good student and go. I can't get senioritis this early in the semester. I stayed in bed as long as I could planning the warmest outfit I could think of in my head.

Then a small miracle happened. I got an email saying my first class had been canceled! I could have sworn that a small choir was singing hallelujah somewhere in the stormy clouds. It was the best thing that has happened so far today.

I am determined to stay warm today. After enjoying the sun in Florida, I swear Logan feels a lot colder than it did before I left. Today is definitely the day for layers. I hope you all stay warm and safe!

I just got back from an awesome family vacation in Orlando!

There were 10 crazy people anxious for a break from the snow and ice. My whole family went plus two cousins plus grandma and grandpa. With that many people, it was definitely a party!

The Orlando temple is so beautiful.

I even got to {kinda} meet Taylor Swift!

 We spent a day at Universal Studios riding rides and making memories.

Hogwarts and Hogsmeade were very cool. The ride through Hogwarts was definitely my favorite ride. I highly recommend it.

We drove to the beach where it was super windy...

...and where we were attacked by seagulls...

... and where we saw a beautiful sunset!

The other day I was sitting in my institute class when I heard something awesome from a girl a few rows back.

The teacher was talking about the ups and downs of marriage and how it is not always bliss.

A girl raised her hand and this is what she had to say:

"You know, marriage is the one time when you can be truely selfless. You don't need to think about what you need because there is someone who has your back completely. Another person is looking out for what you need and you can focus all of your attention on others. Someone is always there for you and you are always there for them."

Isn't that good? Can you imagine being in such a place where you can be perfectly selfless?

I can't wait to have someone in my life I can depend on so completely.

I am so excited about my new blog!

I have spend a lot of time thinking about what I wanted to do with it. I knew that I wanted it to be personalized to me but I wasn't sure how. So I pulled up InDesign and played around with a few ideas and finally narrowed it down to this. Read the "About" tab for the inspiration behind the new title.

I hope you like it as much as I do. Leave me a comment below and tell me what you think.

This is not goodbye.

A new year generally brings changes and fresh starts. And I figure that now it a good time to give my blog a face lift. This is something I have been thinking about for awhile now and decided that 2013 would be as good of time as any. So I will be closing my blog for a little while while I redo it. I have had this blog for over two years now and I want to redesign it to better reflect who I am now; not who I was two years ago. Now I ask for you patience as I begin this project. I can't make any promises as to when it will be done but I am hoping within the next couple of weeks I will have it back up and running again.

This is not goodbye.
