jab with love

so i had all these EMO songs that were like personal attacks and ridiculousness and SOOO dramatic and i thought to myself TAKE IT EASY. so if you read my blog in the last 20 minutes you woulda read them but i hope you didn't because.................................


I know that my Redeemer lives!
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!

He lives, he lives, who once was dead;
He lives, my ever living head!
He lives triumphant from the grave;
He lives eternally to save;
He lives exalted, throned above;
He lives to rule his Church in love.
He lives to grant me rich supply;
He lives to guide me with his eye;
He lives to comfort me when faint;
He lives to hear my soul’s complaint.
He lives to silence all my fears;
He lives to wipe away my tears;
He lives to calm my troubled heart;
He lives all blessings to impart.
He lives to bless me with his love;
He lives to plead for me above;
He lives my hungry soul to feed;
He lives to help in time of need.
He lives, my kind, wise, heavenly friend;
He lives and loves me to the end;
He lives, and while he lives, I’ll sing;
He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King!

He lives and grants me daily breath;
He lives, and I shall conquer death;
He lives my mansion to prepare;
He lives to bring me safely there.
He lives, all glory to his name!

He lives, my savior, still the same;
What joy this blest assurance gives:I know that my Redeemer lives!

the best birthday in the history of birthdays

i had the best birthday!!!!
it was one of the happiest days i've ever had. i know that's a crazy absolute statement but it's true.
i got so much love from EVERYONE- thank you.
but what really made my birthday awesome was the eternal family aspect of it!
my babiest brother, caleb matthew schroedter, got baptized and it was soooo special to see my other baby brother baptize him and i gave the baptism talk and all the family had so much love and he got confirmed and garrett and kristi and shelby and all were there. it was so wonderful.

the spirit was STRONG. the smiles were BIG. and the love was EVERYWHERE!!!!!

do you wanna see a picture that just completes me?? this is what my birthday was all about:

the big two one!!!

my birthday is in 2 days. did you forget? i sure as heck didn't :) i plan to celebrate my birthday for a week or two so don't worry. everyone can help.
family celebration prior. caleb and jacksie's baptism day of. andy date to celebrate. lauryn dall friends party. bask in chase's package for a whole 24 hrs. kelly and lance fiesta. an anderson bash. mission shopping as my gift. ETC. ETC. take a number and i'll be sure to celebrate my birthday just WITH YOU. you have 364 days to celebrate till the big 22 :) well i hope to be on my mission within 100 days so hmmm... anyways. i won't be opposed to belated birthdays- is what i'm saying.

so i've been working on a talk for cay and jacksie's baptism all day. i'm stressed. for a talk that should last 2 minutes for a couple 8 yr olds.
man, i've got problems. if i can't deal with this..... how am i gonna lead a discussion? oh boy :) hahah jk. i'm so ready and STOKED to be swimming in baptisms.
haha swimming. get it. the font. the water? good one!!!

so my baby neice is in town :) i've been having a great time. she is getting used to us and laughing laughing laughing! my beautiful sister is in town. even tho at that moment i'm a little concerned. she decided to announce to a buttload of relatives that i'm dating. watch out, andy. freak nasty. this is an unnecessary announcement. bahahaha. i heart you andersons and chase. there is enough of me to go around... well for now at least.
just JOSHin, shelby. i love you and your voice. you can talk to me or about me anytime. in front or behind my back :) i do about you so it's only fair. did you like how i said "jus JOSHin" since your husband's name. hahaha i'm so funny today.

i decided i like ute fans a little better. i'm standing in my bridesmaid outfit in andy's front yard and a ute neighbor saw that my bumper was dragging. she had to be late 40's and SHE crawls under my hood with her clamp and personal tools and FIXES it. i couldn't even do anything cuz i was wearing white and on my way to take pics for a wedding. i could not sacrifice myself to be on the asphalt like that. i like the U a little more now. keyword: LITTLE!!!
speaking of wearing white. MARY NICOLE FISCHBUCH MOODY looked absolutely stunning and totally happy with her groom, Taylor. I AM SO HAPPY FOR HER AND IT WAS A SPLENDID DAY! take a gander at the fbook pics if you so desire :) comments are appreciated. and rewarded.

great movie. aka INCEPTION! enough said.

can't wait to sing a duet at the pulpit with laur. ok jokes- that's not going to happen. but i wish.

and of course i have to give a shout out to kelly. dear kelly. SHOUT!!!!!! la fin!

p.s. my family leaves wednesday :( SADDDDDDDDDDDDD good thing i'm going to visit them in texas in three weeks :) can i get a whoop whoop?!! until then. LET'S PARTAY!!!

my two front teeth!

so my two front teeth hurt. like a beast.
i got my retainers tightened today (at least i didn't need braces again) and getting a permanent retainer next week once they've shifted. mother of pearl.
thank you schroedter genes for these beautiful cough cough teeth.

good side note. my 14 yr old brother grant may be the biggest cougar fan i know- suck it utes! and his braces.... are blue and white. he admitted it was for byu. now that's dedication. good work, gii!!

you wanna know what i have been having an urge for? is to get into gaming? like halo, wow, counterstrike, jurassic park killing dinasour kinda games. how awesome and attractive would i be to NERDY men if i could kick their trash in the gaming world? yep somebody needs to teach me.

so last night was awesome. i went with my new found point of the mountain friends. lauryn, dallin, nick= thank you, dears. i freekin adore all of these hilarious pepes. we went up to andy's cabin in cottonwood canyon and had a blast. campfire, motorcycles rides, shenanigans, movies, talking.......

yah 45 minutes of sleep happened but i had today to recooperate. cuddled up on chase's bed in his empty house and slept after my ortho appointment. i have problems. hahahaha. today was email day- so that was nice. i feel like my heart is being pulled in every direction and i kinda like it. i honestly don't have to make BIG decisions until after my mission. my decision for now is to stay worthy and get prepared for an AWESOME mission. i'm gonna be the craziest missionary that is a cantene of the SPIRIT. that's how i'm filling my cantene, fools ;)

oh FREAK nasty. freekin stalker mexicano crazy midget followed me today in my car after approaching me 'HOLD MY GOLD. APPROACH ME' -haha good times in indiana...... of all days? hadn't showered. looked like shiz. was running on 45 minutes of sleep and pissed. and he decides to TRY to hit on me and follow me and tail me. oh i will freekin "BUST A CAP"

i saw john bytheway last week at a forum. that was awesome.
uh-oh.... chase's house phone is ringing. no one is here..... should i answer? the voice activating thing said "Call from Emersia Maryanne" um... i must have heard that wrong. that doesn't make sense. but my teeth and my stomach hurt. i'm way to lazy to go read who is calling and i don't think i'm allowed to answer the phone. ahhh when has that stopped me before? brb :)

i saw eclipse for the third time this week. grant and tay hadn't seen it. 10 people in the movie theater. good work, roosevelt.
it's been SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good having my family in town. just what i needed. i felt pretty alone there for a while and now i have more LOVE than i can handle: family, chase, chase's family, kelly, lauryn, andy, dallin, nick, mary, etc. etc. etc. :)
if anyone is hiking mount timp this saturday say hi to my dad on the trail. i did it last summer and 2 times before that. and my freekin neck, stomach, and teeth. there is no way. but props for you that do do it :)

JUSTIN BIEBER. mr. biebs. JB!!!!!!! best concert ever. i seriously have a crush on his lyrics. i'm not all crushing on him because he is illegal and a child but i DO LOVE HIM!!! in a weird older sister. cougar kinda way? bahahaha i'm not really sure if i should say that. ah well i hate the delete button :) it was freekin awesome. best memory ever with ci ci :) my little brothers and cousin nicholas were in heaven as well :) and then midnight bowling after and being ambushed in my sleep. not a bad night. I LOVE JUSIN BIEBER. that should be me... holding your hand ;)

caleb is getting baptized on tuesday :) aka MY 21st birthday. i will accept presents and phone calls from all :) well unless ur a psycho from my past who i have blocked and told to never call me... in that case- leave me alone
'after all we've been through- how dare you not wish me a 'happy birthday''
NO!! after all YOU'VE put me through- how dare you RUIN one more thing like my birthday.
hahaha boys are so stupid.
i missed talking to you manders!!!

so i was told to report my chase brazil bday present:
a bomb diggidy letter, a tape (that i've been begging for for forever!! finally sent one!), incense, chicklets (and i mean a buttload), an awesome brazilian jersey, a ring, a necklace, 4 bracelets, wishing bracelets, a jewelry box, a stuffed animal that had portuguese stuff on, pics of jesus, a portuguese book mark, lots of love and air hugs, and a customs form :) thank you, chaser baby!

mitch and kayla got married this saturday. it was also awesome to catch up and say hi to pepes. KELLY I MISSED YOU LIKE A ZOOBIE MISSED FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!!
yay for eternal marriage. beautiful. mary is getting married this friday :) yay. can't wait for her thursday dinner. thursday bridesmaid sleepover and friday wedding day wonderfulness :) i am so happy for life long friends and beautiful souls that have made me a better person.

having old friends and NEW friends are so important. it helps you see who you are and what you've become :) i love who i am, where i'm going, and what i've learned :) yay for this beautiful journey!

chocolate turtle sauce

things have been rough, world.
i'm sure i'm extra paranoid because i'm about to turn my papers in but i SWEAR satan is after me. he wants to devour me for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. my brain is a psychological warfare zone and things go wrong and timing seems to be conspiring against me.
well you know what LUCIFER. you can't have me. i spit on you! i know i'm stronger than you and so is the path of righteousness. so kiss it.
however..... some things are harder for me to handle than other..
so i'm confused with what's going on with elder cda right now but i'm trying not to totally freak out. communication is often off and there is always a reason for delays. so i'm holding on to that AND holding on to the fact that he is my best friend and i know him and what he would and wouldn't do :)
the unfortunate thing about me is..... is that i get angry in a very weird way. i blame it on kentuckiana.
in private (right when i find out something devastating) i'll cry. or just be sad. crying means something is seriously wrong. but anyways. so first i get sad.
then i get prideful and super cocky and kinda pissed that anyone would make me sad or have control over my emotions like that. so i harden up so fast.

like that chocolate turtle sauce you put on icecream. at first tears are running all over the place. then it hardens and when i harden i get angry. i get ANGRY. i pull away and move on. gratefully i'm not at the pull away part yet. i'm still DECIDING to harden. tears come now and then but i'm very good at being pissed.

it's easier to be mad than sad.

on a happier note. ECLIPSE!!! i'm seeing it AGAIN today. and AGAIN with my mom. and AGAIN with tay :) oh happy day!!!!!!!
