DIARY OF A WIMPY KID.
enough said. i might be juvenile for finding it so hilarious but seriously. it felt soooo good to laugh so hard. i'm sure my company and the whole theater was embarrassed for me but it was glorious :)
i have recently (since kelly's wedding) started keeping a daily diary (i like to call it a journal just like greg [aka main character from the movie]) mainly to record what preparing for a mission is like for me and so i can write down a lot of my issues. hahaha.
so i felt like WOW i should write more like gregory. his diaries are hilarious. but then i remembered i'm not in middle school so now matter how i tried- my life would never been that crazy.

i just wanted to write a quick shout out to this awesome movie. i will be buying it. oh let me google when it gets released on video. brb.
estimated: JULY 2010!!! that's not too far away at all!!!!!!! yay.

too many thoughts before bed

oh man i'm wigging out right now. i just finished this murder/mystery/suspense novel by mary higgins clark. i can see why many ppl like her (my first time reading something by her) but i am officially FREAKED!!!! i seriously double checked the dead bolt like forty times at my apartment. ahhhhhh. 3 murderers in one community (one novel)? i realize it's fiction but are they that common!!! ahhhhhhhh thought #1.

thought #2. i miss aubrey grace loud :( like BAD. i was just looking at shelbs and josh's blog. :( i wish i could visit with my mom and caleb in a couple weeks.

thought #3. i hate Satan.

mission prep is freakin INTENSE but i'm learning a lot, becoming more open minded, growing a lot, and feeling blessed to be enrolled in that class. thought #4.

thought #5. i freakin LOVE chase!!!! like seriously. i know things will be "weird" when we're back in person but i can't imagine feeling anything but bliss for that man. when we were together= a bliss. while we're apart= still bliss. when we're back together= i'm guessing BLISS. it's all different levels of sheer wonderful bliss.

thought #6. i have been working on julie's bday gift all day and i'm DYING to show her. one thing that some people consider my weakness- i'm the WORST at surprises for christmas and birthdays. ahhhhhhh. i can last one more week of keeping it a secret.

i cannot wait to go camping with my andersons memorial day weekend. cannot wait. i need some nature healing four-wheeling loving family heartfelt joyful sunny days :) thought #7

i cannot wait to get my endowments out in.... 3 months i'm hoping :) thought #8

i have SOOOO much to be looking forward to. that much is very obvious- but i'm dancing in the rain and sunshine presently!!!!! even though the future is awesome. so is the present! i am grateful for every second (before i'm killed by my creepy neighbor/ serial killer like natalie or emily in the novel i just read!) thought #9

heidi and spencer are seriously HILARIOUS. that's the first adjective i'd use. the second would be "future mary higgins clark characters for her next serial killer novel". and third adjective- absolutely insane! hahha thought #10

thought #11 i seriously LOVE chase. did i already use that as a thought? well he is my every other thought so that makes sense. today he told me: eu amo voce muito! voce e tudo para mim! yah portuguese is sexy and romantic.
"since he liked it, he went and put a ring on it. don't be mad just because he knew what he wanted. oh oh ohhhhh oh oh oh oh oh. "
hahahaha i crack myself up

thought #12 i miss taylor tremendously but am VERY grateful for his daily texts and our updated close friendship. he is seriously saving me..... everyday! i love you tii :)

bridal showers. invites. weddings. is wedding season over yet? PLEASE! freak nasty. thought #13

i'm obsessed with this song introduced by the beautiful lauryn and dapper steve "if i die young" so if i die young, oh blog readers. please..... have me proxy-sealed to chase (that's not legit but try to swing it and convince upper authority. k thanks) make SURE all those people that throughout my life i have made promise to sing at my funeral do actually sing (i.e. shelby, kelly, elder kirn, and anyone else who is shy- make sure u tell them it was my death wish. SOLOs from each of them. guilt trip them) and lastly- make sure you go through all my journal entries (don't judge what you find) but look for all those entries i've ever written about my funeral arrangements. i've made entries now and then since i was 10 yrs old or so hahhahahahahhha. there are a few poems i wrote that need to be written and a will is in there i'm sure thought #14

thought #15 wow after that last post- i should really go to bed. i'm embarassing myself

thought #16 i am so excited kelly invited me over tomorrow :) i'm still a welcomed third wheel. holla!

bachelorette.... 4 days!!!! thought #17

i miss my family in texas a lot and i miss garrett here :( thought #18

thought #19 i am SOOOOOO glad summer is actually embracing this frigid land!!

thought #20 i know my Savior lives. I love Him.

Amen to it all :) Good night!

two is better than one

yes two is better than one. this is the epic song that kelly and lance two-stepped to for their first dance as husband and wife. it was glorious. the reception was rockin. some spontaneous line dancing. getting hit on by older men. making a witty toast. hosting with a microphone. failing at catching the bouquet. dancing with underaged men. chase on the brain. kelly and lance looking spectacular. especially kelly. MAN oh man! bombshell. and now they're in the bahamas. livin the dream! sigh :) i'm so happy for them and cannot wait to hear deets (thanks for the word lauryn) when they get back. i have so much to say but i guess i'll just let some pics tell the story :) my scrapbook for this event is going to be awesome. it's weird because for the past 5 months THIS is what i've been putting my heart and soul into! now it's like RELAXATION and nostalgia. everything went so smoothly. and it was a blast. like seriously a party! becca was a great wingman and i was a wingman to kelly so we just were a winged creature having fun!!! so many laughs and good times.
we had some tbell and butterface lee and paix watching over us. and a creepy truck that harassed us and a pic of chase and phone calls with aj. and whining from the fiancé about missing aj. oh bother. hahaha. GREAT times. music video coming soon. maybe not appropriate for public eyes. hahaha.
the drive from ptown to denver was long. HENCe.
THIS IS A GOOD SIGN!! (a pun!) in the right state now at least. yippeeeeeee.
just some hotel adventures. nice to have our own space and crazy times!!! wonderful roomie.
skillful. gymnastics lessons as a child= paid off= check.
we had a day at the aquarium in denver. that was fun. this is a great pic of the 5 year old children. aka women in their 20's.
they had some hideous, goofy looking, beautiful, eye-captivating fish there.

AND ONTO THE BIG DAY!!!!!!!!
the group all cheering for this glorious eternal occasion. yah buddy rollin like a big shot.

this is my favorite picture of the whole wedding pics. i love it. me and my obsession with kissing pics. its just so picturesque and brings a tear to my eye. many reasons for tears that day: so happy for them, missing chase, a little sad its over, i miss kelly, a little stressful, the spirit was strong, and SOOO happy for them
kelly wanted me to do this. but i liked it :) symbolic. haha jk i bring them CLOSER. i'm not sure what that means. but yah.


there it is. my own idea of beauty and friendship and awesomeness.
this is a great captured moment for me. hence the prof pic making.

you know it. scandolous and sassy!!! jumping for joy after their ceremony.

nme and becca chilling on the temple grounds for a second after all the commotion. soaking it all in. and it was beautiful weather.
their first dance at the reception that night. two is better than one.
enjoying the reception with my date. why does she look in pain? she just smashed her knuckles on the table it was hilarious. and this is BEFORE the giant spider (bigger than my retainers!!!) was on my shoulder and who know how it got there or where it went after i made a huge commotion shaking it off and almost knocking over the bride and the whole tent? YIKES! hahaha but hilarious. good times, b!
GOOD BYE lovely couple. get 'er done! be safe. be gentle. be wild!!!!!! bahamas WATCH out! see you in 2 weeks :)
