"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."

I have so many dreams and they all change from time to time but a few have stuck. I am dreaming lately 24/7 of these and I so badly want them to come true but they seem so far out of reach and then my dreams fade into reality and the Lord reminds me in "due time" my dreams will come true. I want so badly to be married in Mesa, Arizona Temple for time and all eternity to the love of my life. I want to have a temple marriage and a loving husband and home. I want the eternal package and my patience is running thin on this and I know in due time my dream will come true.
I want to travel the world and especially to this beautiful place. My dream has always been to be in Italy one day. I want to see the beauty it graces us and have it fill me up with so much joy and contentment that it spills over. I want so badly to fulfill this life long dream of learning more of art and history two of my favorite things.

Another thing I want badly is a farm/ranch. Many don't know that about me but I love everything that a farm/ranch represents. I love the feel of having animals and land surrounding me. To have a humble home with peace and love and I feel I will find that no matter what but my dream is to have my farm/ranch one day my very own.

Lastly I want to serve till the day I die. I have had the opportunity to serve my Grandma lately and I can feel my spirits already uplifted and my burdens lightened by doing so. I love serving others with all my heart. I can not express the joy it brings me and the peace.

"There is nothing like a dream to create the future."

........Someday my dreams won't be so out of reach........

Happy Turkey Day!!

This Turkey Day has been so great! I am more thankful then ever for my family and the city I grew up in. Its great to be home and enjoy being with family and friends and NO SNOW!
I am so very thankful for...

My family-Their love and support in everything I do. They are always there for me 100 percent and never seize to amaze me with the undying love and patience. Everyone says how their family is the best and perfect but mine is just perfect for ME. I have been blessed with amazing parents and sisters who are loyal to the end.

Friends-I have some pretty great friends! Growing up I would always pray for a good group of friends and I believe the Lord has given me exactly that. They show me each day what it means to be a good friend.

Mesa, Arizona-I was so blessed to live in such a amazing place. Being away for the past year has made me appreciate it more. It has a strong LDS community where ive felt so much love. I love the amazing sunsets and the great winter weather along with the opportunity to have a temple so close that allows me to be on the grounds daily.

Nathan-I am thankful for all that he has taught me about love and life. I would not be who I am today without knowing him and learning from him.

The gospel-The restoration of the church has been such a blessing in my life and I am so thankful for it and for how it has shaped my life. I am truly blessed and it is all because of the Lord and his infinite love for me.

I hope you all have a safe and happy Turkey Day. And I hope we can all remember to Give Thanks!!

The many Blessings in my life

Last night I was talking with my sister Alyssa about life and the many challenges in it. Ive been a little bummed lately with no job and stressing over paying for things and a wedding. When we were talking she was so calm and patient and happy. I noticed how extremely happy she was and I asked her whats helping and she said prayer. She was saying how at peace shes at when shes praying and having a relationship with her Heavenly Father. How she is so much less selfish by praying and she is so thankful for more things. The more talking we did the more thankful I became for things....
I have the most amazing parents ever! Their so selfless and always trying to do and give the best to us. My mom has taught me to be a independent strong young woman and to never settle for less than I deserve. My dad has taught me always forgive others. He has taught me diligence and hard work through his own example and has made me want that in my eternal companion.

Sommer and Byron are also another blessing in my life. Sommer is so amazing! She is prolly the kindest unselfish person I know. She is always looking for the best in others and I seriously never hear her talk about anyone badly. Her husband Byron is also so great. He is such a great dad and husband and always has my best interest at heart.

Then theres Brianna and Brian. Brianna is such a inspiration to everybody. She never realizes the impact she is in everyones life. Just with a smile or hug she makes things better. She is always willing to help others no matter what and never asks for anything in return. Brian is also up there with her being a inspiration to people and not knowing it. He is the funniest happiest guy I know who is always looking on the bright side.

This is "Luce" as I call her. We are the closest in age and seem to fight the most. But we also have such a great relationship. We are very protective of eachother and stick to eachother like glue. She has the best spirit about her. Some may not know that but she is one of the kindest loving people I know. Whenever I need her for anything she is always there for me 100 %

I have the best family a girl could ask for. I wouldnt Trade them for anything and love everything about them. I am so thankful for little texts and conversations I get to have with them and the examples they are to me!

Im home!

So for those of you who don't know I am home from Utah! I got home sunday morning. Now it is time to look for a job so if anyone that does hair out there needs a assistant I would GLADLY do it! On different note I took my mamas beach cruiser for a stroll down to my sisters house and fell in LOVE! Its become my new favorite thing and now I want one really badly. Good thing we have a old one that just needs a bit of fixing up all for me :)

Ps Sommer and I found a way cute dresser being thrown away yesterday so I snatched it up and that will be a post for the future of the before and after!

Sunday, April 19, 2009


So I usually don't post my feelings on my blog. I like to keep it up beat and happy but seeing as this is my journal also I am going to vent away my feelings.

Its been 2 months since we met and things were bumpy at first but proceeded to get better. You became my best friend and my sidekick when we were feeling mischievous. As time went on things slowly dwindled and we tried to work through it but we both knew in the back of our minds it wasn't going to work. Time would only tell what would happen and time did tell that we weren't meant to be. You were great and treated me like a queen. I appreciate all you taught me and how much I grew and learned about myself through being with you. But for now im going to let my heart ache and as time goes on it will get better but now me, Tay Swift and brownies are going to have a good cry...

My Obsession...

I absolutley LOVE crafts especially making head bands. I have about 15 now cause they are so fun to do. My most recent ones were prolly my most creative. One of them is just a regular yellow flower that I glued on top of eachother to make bigger and glued onto a headband and my other one is my favorite! Julie and I went to michaels and fell in love with these purple flowers and then we went to DI to buy sweatshirts where we cut off the arms and sewed them into head bands and superglued the flowers on. The before.
The during.

The After.
The Yellow Flower Headband.

My Favorite :)

If I Could I would make this into a business I love it so much but until then I will just enjoy my fun hobby.

Home Sweet Home..

Lately I have been a bit home sick for Arizona and all it's goodness. As great as Utah has been Im missing some of my favorite things in good ol AZ. I miss Gecko Grill alot. Utah does NOT know what Mexican food means and I have been missing this place alot.
Im missing the Arziona Scenery.Utah has some beautiful scenery but it does NOT compare to these sunsets that I miss so dearly.
Right now spring is in full bloom in Arizona while in Utah there is still snow on the ground. I miss these great oranges and the smells they bring during spring time.

And what I miss most of all is my Family! Its great that their only a phone call away but its not the same as seeing them in person. Thier my best friends and I miss them the most!
6 weeks Arizona and I will be seeing you for good!

He Hears You....

Here I am again, down on my knees
And with every pleading word,
Thy comfort I seek
Though the words are slow to come,
My thoughts are racing byPeace fills the room,
Thy spirit is night
He hears me
When I'm crying in the night
He hears meWhen my soul longs to fight
Till the morning will come
And the light of the dawn reassures...
He hears me
Any hour, wherever I may be
In the silence of an empty room, o
r on a croweded street
Whether offering thanks, or in urgency
I prayI never go unnoticed,
I'm never lead astray
He hears me
When I'm crying in the night
He hears me
When my soul longs to fight
Till the morning will come
And the light of the dawn reassures...
He hears me
Any whisper of the soul
No matter how old
Father hears the call
He hears me
When I'm crying in the night
He hears me
When my soul longs to fight
Till the morning will come
And the light of the dawn reassures...
He hears me
At work today I needed some uplifting and so I pulled up some EFY music and this song came up and it was exactly what I needed to hear. At times I question if the Lord hears me with so many other concerns to worry about but the other day I was having a bad day where it felt as if everyone was being negative towards me and it made me question what I was worth to the Lord if I was ever going to shine as bright as I wanted. As I went about cleaning my room I opened my pants drawer to find my patriarticle blessing laying on top of them as if waiting for me to read it. Since I have 5 room mates I went to my car to have quiet alone time and what a great answer that was for me. The Lord knows me like no one else and knew exactly what I needed to hear and proved that I am worth millions and that he Loves me. Though I know I will have many more moments like that where I need the Lords guidance I know He Hears Me...

He's Just Not That Into You...

I just went and saw this movie last night and a light bulb went off in my head. Im like the character Gigi always over analyzing everything a guy says and does. Everyone has put this in my head though. If a guy does or says this he likes you but if he does that oh no no he doesn't like you. Dating has become much too complicated for my liking. If I talk to a guy they automatically think I like them and want to pursue them. Its not like that though I just want to be friends with everyone.

What has the dating world come to? When did chivalry die and jerk come alive? In the movie they talked about how when your little a guy pulls your ponytail or pushes you down it means he likes you and I think we have all continued this mentality. Girls let the jerks push them around and yet their still there by their side. If I knew the answer to this I wouldn't of dated so many jerks so what makes girls stay and stick it out when there are so many great guys out there? And where are these great guys?

I know all my bloggers are all married so help a girl out! What signs should a girl look for in the beginning stage? What should we do and not do?
I took a poll from the girls at work and this is what they say....

Azul and Sasha are not dating anyone right now and this is what they say...
-Hes into you when he remembers little things youve said and trys to cheer you up when your down.
-Hes not into you when he "squeezes" the word friend out there. Or when they bring up a girl is hot or just bring up girls in general

Diana is happily Married to Daniel and this is what she says...
-Hes into you when he keeps eye contact and asks you alot of questions.
-Hes not inot you when wants to go for a drive meaning he wants to hook up and if he ends to date sooner than you think.

Rebecca is not dating anyone either and this is what she says...
-Hes into you when he is willing to make an effort to see you outside of "hanging out" or is willing/wanting to meet your friends.
-Hes not into you when if he asks you advice about dating.
when your hanging out with a group he pays you the exact same amount of attention or less, as to the other people in the group.

So bloggers ALL of you help us out here that are dating to know when "hes just not that into you" I know I can use all the help I can get :)

Yay for Pictures!

So I am home for the weekend and can finally upload pictures from Christmas Break and whats been going on since then! And I guess I uploaded the pics from the most recent

This guy right above is Nate. He is in my ward and asked me on a date last weekend. Super funny guy. The other 2 are his room mate and his date and sadly I can't remember their names. We went and played Lazer Tag and saw Madagascar 2. While waiting for our lazer tag game Nate felt the need to hop into the little airplane. So we all took pictures of us in the airplane and needless to say at my 5'1 stature I fit in perfectly :)

Above is my co-worker Sasha, Tracy Barber and then me. My co-worker and Tracey are in the same ward and Tracey and I went to high school together. We went the the "Mayan" Resturant. We had heard it was really cool so we tried it out. That wall above is a big waterfall and people dive and do tricks off of it into the pool below. And the resturant is all jungle themed. It was way fun.

This past month President Monson was holding a fireside at BYU Campus so my room mates and I had to opportunity of going to see him speak and what an amazing experience that was! I forgot to take pictures while he was speaking but this is what I got. The place was packed full and more!

This is Ambi one of my best friends and I on our way up to Thatcher on the 1st. Her boyfriend(now fiance) lives up there and wanted to show us around and just take a break from the city(and yes Mesa is a cuty compared to Thatch)

All in all life is good. Enjoying life and learning alot. Ive come to realize how much the Lord has answered my prayers and provided me with such a great growing experience and I am truly thankful for those answers and all that I have!

Families Are Forever...

may have had
our ups and downs,
but always found a way
to mend our fences and move on
and call a day a day.
We weren't picture perfect
there were times we even fought
when I look back I see
we were much closer than I thought.
For all the test and trials
I would never trade these years,
I learned so much because of them
the laughter, and the tears.
So i've come to appreciate
my unique family tree,
and I am blessed and thankful
for the one God gave to me."
I want to let my parents and sisters know how much they mean to me. I would not be who I am today without your words of guidance and love. I know I can count on you for anything through thick and thin. So heres to you guys for being my idol, my hero and my best friend. I love you!
