Hello There.

I have not posted since November!! That's crazy.  And I don't regulary check out blogs like I used to anymore.  Just haven't felt like it really.  But I thought I'd post a quickie.

Not much has happened.  Had some negativity in my life for a bit and didn't realize how much it was affecting my heart, soul, and happiness.  I cannot tell you how grateful I am for life, the gospel, and who I am, especially this last year.  But this negative thing just took it away piece by piece without me even realizing it until I was not myself anymore.  So I had to pull myself away and it's been hard at times, but I know in the end it's for the best.  I then went to Italy, which was amazing! Being there and experiencing something beautiful put things in perspective for me.  Beautiful buildings, history, food, people.  It was so wonderful! I can't wait go back!   

Oh, I caught the travel bug so I just booked another trip to Hawaii in July! Not too shabby.  Why not live while you're alive and nothing is holding you back?? Why keep waiting for life to happen when you can make life actually happen??

Hope anyone that reads this is doing well! :) Sorry for missing some good reads lately!

Like Whoa.

It's been awhile since I've posted anything.  Not much to tell.  I'm just extremely happy with my life.  I've set some new goals and love where I'm at and where I'm going.  I want to always be going and that's what is making me happy. 

My job is still great and have had some really "interesting" and scary experiences there.
My new place I'm living in is still amazing and always gets better with the wonderful people I live with.
I'm taking more control of my health and feel happier for it.

I don't know how else to explain anything.  I love being so blessed and so happy.  I'm learning to have an attitude of gratitude and that really helps me fulfil everything else.

Hope everyone else is doing well!!

Moving Day.

Yup, today is the day! I've moving out.  My family is probably super excited about this one!

I've been thinking about moving to my own place lately (it's about time I grew up, right??) and I've been apartment hunting for the last couple of weeks.  It's been so fun dreaming of my own place, but renting just a one bedroom is so expensive! Geez.  I could almost buy a house for the amount of rent I'd be paying.  But I'm not ready for the expenses of my own house quite yet either. 

Luckily, I found a house to rent instead that is beautiful and has a backyard! Love backyards.  At first I wasn't thrilled with the idea of having roommates, but after seeing the house, talking to my future roommates, and knowing I wouldn't be breaking the bank, I felt a lot better about it than renting an apartment.  It all just seemed to work out and this is what I need to be doing for right now.  

It may not be my own dream house, but it's close to it.  I'll post pictures after we're all moved in.

Ok, I'll post one picture.. the kitchen is AMAZING!!! Pretty much the reason I wanted to live there.  I will be attempting my cooking skills in this place... keyword: attempting.  I may just end up eating a lot of cereal instead.

Latest Happenings

I can't sleep right now so I decided I'd blog something instead.

What I've been up to...

I had FIVE whole days off from work so I went to Utah in my brand new car to celebrate! Loved that I could drive a car that I wasn't afraid would break down on me.  It was a wonderful trip and I'm so happy that I got to go home.  Made me miss it.  Especially the trees. 

  Visiting my brother's 1908, ghetto house.

Visiting my gorgeous friend Andrea and eating at The Oaks in Ogden Canyon. The food is so good and the view was was perfect! We ate by the river!! How have I not been here??

The waterfall in Ogden Canyon. I can't believe I never noticed this before!

You'd think I'd never seen green before and technically I really haven't in about 5 years. Vegas has ruined my idea of green apparently.

We went to the Capitol to watch a movie in the park.

It was surprisingly cold that night too! Or maybe I'm too accustomed to Vegas weather now.      

The beautiful Salt Lake City Temple!!

I also went to Lagoon but decided to not take any pictures for some reason even though I had my camera with me.  The rollarcoasters were just too much fun and I was eating too much cotton candy to even think about it.  

I haven't really been up to much else besides work and work is still going well.  Feeling like things are starting to make sense compared to when I first started.

Also, my best friend Leah got married! That was wonderful to experience and be a part of even though there was so much behind-the-scenes drama.  What wedding doesn't have drama though?? It still turned out perfectly and I couldn't be happier for them!
 (All I know is, I will hire someone else to do everything if I ever get married.  Geez).

Also started doing Bikram Yoga.  Torturously amazing I tell you! But being off for 2 weeks for the wedding and this vacation did not help one bit.  So it feels like day 1 again.

And that's the latest for now.  Happy Summer Time!

Baby Blue

Dream job... check!
Dream car... check, check!!

Yes it's come true.  I got my dream car and even better than I could have imagined! I feel so blessed.  I wasn't even planning on buying a car and it just happened.  I guess that's how great things in our life happen sometimes, right? Unplanned.

Introducing: My 2007 Toyota Camry LE:
(I just want to stare at it all day!)

Next... dream vacation!
Instead of Paris, I'll be going to Italy.  This makes me happier because I have more of an interest in Italy than Paris.  Plus, I cannot wait to eat real Italian food!!!

Then, the ultimate dream... my dream house! 
But that's waaaay down the road.

So until then I'm going to enjoy this.

And I apologize for how jumpy this post may seem.  I'm just a little happy today :)

My Favorite Things...

1.  I get to enjoy my weekend off (5 day weekend to be exact!!) and go to some baseball games.  That makes my heart melt.

2.  I haven't cared much about the royal wedding but I woke up this morning and decided to watch some re-runs/clips and now I'm a believer.  Her dress was magical, elegant, and perfect. 

3.  I'm going to be taking my first trip ever on my own! It'll be next year and I'll be going to London and Paris with one of those tour groups with a good friend of mine.  After finishing school and getting the dream job, I kept wondering, what now?? I'm satisfied with my career, my friends are all moving on, what do I do now?? For the last 3 or 4 years, it was always "finish school, just finish school, get a job." I didn't think much of what to do after I was done because the end didn't seem in sight at the time.  And now that I've done that I've felt lost so tt's nice to have something to look forward to.  Plus, what's the point of working if you're not going to live?? We work to live, not live to work (that's how I'm justifying all this!)

4.  My dream car.  I know exactly what I want, but can't pick out a color yet.  Plus, I'm working on getting a few things taken care of before I commit to that big of a purchase.  So I guess I have another thing I'm looking forward to.

5.  My hair.
hahaha! Ok that sounds lame, but I can't think of anything else and since I just put my hair up in one try, which never happens, that makes me like life.

Happy Weekend!
