her name is Jamie

Sunday, April 7, 2013

It was the windiest day in Rexburg ever. Jamie and I headed up on a hill to take her mission photos but it was just way to windy to get anything. But I have a fond spot for laughing-hair blowing photos. So I thought I would post these. Jamie is someone I'm so thankful for meeting, she is the sweetest thing in the whole world and cracks me up daily. We have chemistry together, the class that is, and we both don't understand a dang thing and we just get through it everyday with our inside jokes and love for the single men in our class. She is going to make an unbelievable missionary. I was so blessed to meet her! 

for the better

I listened to LDS conference this sunday and one thing stuck out to me and I'm more than one hundred percent sure none of the talks said anything about this. but I started to think about how I act as a person. Is it something I'm happy with, or that He is happy with? Do I strive to uplift the ones around me...do I smile, do I make people feel comfortable, do I serve with love. Am I sweet?
I got a feeling today that I cant avoid. Being sweet is so important.
I think this is my new goal. SWEETNESS & SMILES all around!

the best weekend

Monday, April 1, 2013

I sorta maybe had the best weekend of my life. I could not wipe the smile off of my face. It was all around such a blessing to drive down to Utah.
It included:
My sweet roomie, Em & I jammed to our hearts content to every song we owned. especially tswift.
We ate way to many dark chocolate covered pomegranates.
Stayed with the sweetest family from Hawaii who catered to every need, especially food needs, and that food was literally the best.
Saw my very best friend and squeezed her and laughed like no separation had ever occurred.
Went to the festival of colors and met some of the nicest people ever.
Gave lots of hugs and almost cried.
Had an easter with out my own family. I felt the love from people I did not even know. and it reminded me how great families are and how precious they can be.
Said goodbyes.
Drove my car back to Idaho & cried. that may sound rather silly. but I can barely remember a time where I stepped out of my comfort zone so much and lived my life. It strange to me how beautiful of a life I was missing out on for so many years by being shy.
It was really a weekend to never forget.
It was the best weekend.
