New beginnings

Where to start...I haven't blogged in awhile. I just haven't wanted to. Nothing was new sure stories here and there but life has become mundane to me but alas Ive come back to the blogging world for a tiny update.

1.I got a job. I have been home since June and have been searching relentlessly for a job. Some may call me crazy but I didn't just want any job to fill the gap until I found the perfect one. Night after night and every opportunity of fasting I finally got a great job! I don't regret being picky. I work at Habit Salon. I have wanted to be in a salon for forever! Right now it is part time and I'm okay with that. I assist a stylist there and honestly for only being there 4 days I have already learned so much and enjoy being at work.

2.This may not be big for some but for me it is. I have MY OWN ROOM. You may chuckle I do too when I tell my sap story. Growing up I always shared a room with Alyssa my younger sister and finally when I was 18 got my own room for about a year before I moved away and then shared for 2 years and when I moved home I had to share until the basement was renovated and finally I have my own room! I am enjoying decorating it and putting the finishing touches on it.

3. Dating sucks. Simple as that. Men don't know how to treat girls. I don't want to be your cuddle buddy or midnight call. Trust me your ego will dwindle if you try. I'm fine with the saying whatever happens will happen and ill take it one day at a time but come one guys Call me up ask me on a date get to know me don't play coy and try and "hangout" for as long as you can. Ill put you in the friend category.

For now that is all I can muster into a post Maybe next time ill have pictures of other adventures :)!

My family and I had the opportunity for a weekend vacay to San Diego over the 4th. The pictures are out of order and I stole all of them :)

On the 4th before fireworks we went to Gaslamp District to walk around and window shop
Shay and Harlo are bffs. Whenever Lo is around Shay has to hold her and love on her.

On Saturday these 2 love birds got Engaged :)

Following the engagement we made Hobo dinners and there was a firework show

I just had to post this picture I just Love the little girl!!

And finally the beginning of the trip we went to LA. This isn't as half as bad as it usually is there. I picked up some new flip flops and a way cute purse!! Over all the trip was fabulous and the last day since I was the last child around I got to go to Sea World which was tons of fun!

Still looking for a job if anyone knows of anything please!!!

Oh hey...

Its me Stephanie. I have been horrible at blogging but life has been busy for once! For those of you that don't know...drum roll...I moved back home to MESA FOR GOOD! No more Utah. My mama came up packed up my car while I was working my last day and then we headed out...after breaking down in the middle of nowhere and doing jumping jacks to wake us up we got home :) Right when I got home I was on the road again heading to California for a week to beach camp with the fam. I have been home a week now visiting friends, making new friends, loving family time and looking for a job(eyes peeled need job!). Its good being home the familiarity is comforting.

Stay tuned for my new adventures!!

Last night Julie and I got to go to the Muse Concert! AMAZING! We were on the floor and just a little bit back from the stage therefore we got a great view and even better pictures! Julie took a ton so I am having to condense it down but if were friends on facebook their all on there!
They had the eye balloons with confetti and they threw them down at the end and then popped them!

I may or may not have a little crush on the bass player now :)

I wish I could post all of the pictures! They don't give the concert justice for how great it was! Muse is my all time favorite now!

So for Arizona's Spring Break I got the opportunity to go to LA and do some shopping and family time with my Mama, Lyss, Soms, Shay Bugs and Lyss's missionaries Mom Cath and his sister Beck who are close friends of our family. Its was tons of fun and much needed! I didn't take many pictures because I didn't want to lug my camera around with me but the night we went down to Hollywood I got pictures of me playing tourist :)(LOVE Judy Garland shes my favorite actress)

(Soms Shay Bugs and I)

(Harry Potter...need I say more? Im their biggest fan)(They always have people down there dressed up and loved this one of The Joker)

....they also had white AND black MJ
(They also had wax figures around and this was the coolest one there)

All in all it was a great trip and I had lots of fun even if Shay Bugs felt the need to sleep in our bed on top of me :)

"The Joy of Womanhod"

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. Oh, how we pray that every young woman will grow up to be all the wonderful things she is meant to be. We pray that her mother and father will show her the right way. May daughters of God honor the priesthood and sustain worthy priesthood holders. May they understand their own great capacity for strength in the timeless virtues that some would scoff at in a modern, liberated world for women."
-Margaret D. Nadauld

I am so proud to be a Daughter of God! You can read the entire talk here.

Loving Yourself

I was reading Britney's blog today and one of her posts stood out to me a lot so im going to copy her :)

“I testify that no one of us is less treasured or cherished of God than another. I testify that He loves each of us—insecurities, anxieties, self-image, and all. He doesn’t measure our talents or our looks; … He cheers on every runner, calling out that the race is against sin, not against each other.” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

So here's what I(she) decided: we are all going to participate in a little exercise today. I'll start, you'll follow.First, we are going to name 3 physical traits that we actually like about ourselves. Then, we are going to name 3 talents we have. Next, we'll state 3 accomplishments we are proud of. After that, we will name 3 personality traits or qualities of ours we are glad we have. And last, we will name 3 people that we know love us unconditionally -- faults, insecurities and all.

Here goes:

Physical Traits
1. My button nose
2. My eyes
3. My smile

1. Cooking
2. Crafts
3. Softball

1. Living on my own in another state
2. Getting my license in hair
3. Being independent

Personality Traits/Qualities
1. Forgiving heart
2. Patience
3. Strong testimony

People that Love Me
1. My Heavenly Father/Jesus Christ
2. My parents
3. My sisters

Im not having some identity crises Im just grateful for who I am and I think we all should be grateful for who we are. Heavenly Father made us and he doesn't make mistakes.

So lets all celebrate our uniqueness and embrace our attributes and faults.
Happy Monday :)

"Love is not just looking at each other, but looking in the same direction"

I am in major miss mode these past couple weeks. I can't seem to get completely out of this funk and I know many have tried to help but I just feel its impossible at this moment. I have so much to be thankful for and have been blessed immensely for starters....
-I just got a part time nanny job....literally the greatest thing to ever happen and I did a happy dance and said multiple prayers of thanks.
-I have the best room mates..especially Julie she makes things so much better and I am so grateful to have a friend like her she's amazing!
-I have a great ward and Bishopric...first singles ward that I've actually felt comfortable at.
-I have an amazing family who care for me so much.
These our just some of my many blessings but I guess they don't fill the hole in my heart that hurts. I miss my family a lot. I wish they were a walk away and not a phone call away. It's hard being away from them. I miss my bed at home and talks with my parents late at night or taking drives with Alyssa and our talks. I miss my sisters Sommer and Brianna and my loves shay bugs and Lo. I miss their words of comfort and their hugs. I miss my G-ma and going to lunch with her or working for her just so we can spend time together.

The rest of the pain comes from missing my best friend. It's weird to know he is down the street from me but I can't see him or talk to him. I know were not together for a reason but it doesn't lesson the hurt and loss of a best friend. Like the quote above "love is not just looking at each other, but looking in the same direction." Ill find someone who has the same direction as me . I don't expect us to be exactly the same but I want us to have similar dreams and ideas for not only us but for our future family.

Like every other day all I can do is count my blessings because I have so many and draw closer to the Lord for help and guidance.

I miss you ALL!

So last night I went on a date with one of my long time friends Jeff Whitlock. I have known him since I was a baby and have been friends ever since. Were both up here in Utah and he promised me a date before he left on his mission and since he's back now he followed up on that and took me out.
He picked me up at 7:30 (after getting lost) and we went to his apartment where his room mate and his date were waiting for us. They made us Fajitas and dip for dinner. It was super yummy and we had a good time talking!
After dinner they had planned for us to go swing dancing. I was pretty nervous to go cause I am not coordinated with my feet...hips yes feet no. I was glad it was with Jeff because hes known me long enough that I can look like a fool. When we showed up everyone there are big "Swing" people and his room mate had been before so he taught us a lot of moves and by the end we started to get the hang of it. I absolutely love that era so it as fun hearing the music and learning a new dance. It was even better that I got to hang out with one of my good friends who by the way is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet! Over all the night was successful and it was a great first date after a year :)

Meet the Roomies!


These are my roomies up here in Provo. Their pretty awesome. I was pretty nervous to come back up here to a new room mates but we've hit it off pretty great! All of my room mates and I are single and ready to mingle so we have been having lots of fun getting out there and being social. We have a rule in our apartment that we don't date in the ward because its like peeing in the pool everyone knows and its really awkward. We've already come up with multiple inside jokes and love to have roomie movie nights which happens often. Ive seriously been soo blessed this semester to have such great room mates that I can talk to and feel comfortable around. Shout out to Julie for being my room roomie and dealing with me...your the bestest ever!!!

Happy Birthday Mama!!!!!!!!

January 28th was my sweet mamas birthday!! My mom is the most amazing person!! If I could id lend her out to others but I am much too selfish and like her all to myself. She is amazing in most every way. She can fix just about, furniture, your heart, sink...anything really! I look up to her so much and strive everyday to be like her. She has a tender heart and has taught us to forgive and love always. Many people stop my mom and I and say wow you two are like twins which in return she apologizes to ME! I am soo blessed to look like my mom and feel its a compliment...she is a beautiful woman inside and out and I am blessed to call her my mama! She is always telling us to remember how great we are and mom remember how GREAT YOU ARE!! I love you to the care bears and back!!

I can't believe im not married...

I was reading a friends blog and she posted about this guy who posted an ad to avoid dating and let them know upfront about his quirks instead of talking himself up. I loved her post and thought id copy her with my own ad.

Stephanie's Ad:
-I don't think chocolate and peanut butter should ever be mixed. Worst combination ever.

-I am very picky when it comes to movies and what ill watch.

-Im oddly always on time. I hate being late makes me nervous.

-I crack my knuckles hourly. Its a bad habit.

-You could not pay me enough to watch Lord of the rings, Avatar or any of those weirdo movies.

-I am not very sanitary. If I could id go barefoot everywhere.

-I love the smell of black sharpies.

-I don't answer my phone. I think that's why my family has stopped calling me.

-Id rather wear men's deodorant then woman's.

-Im anti social. I enjoy small groups or being alone. I get drained fast when too many people are around.

Who's ready to date me :)
