this is a lot longer than i thorugh it would be


i've been home for approximately 2 weeks. and it has been great fun. went beach camping with the family, which was AMAZING! I really enjoy time with my extended family. It is much more enjoyable than it used to be. Growing up I never had a super close cousin friend, cause no one was my age. So I always felt like the odd one out and therefore ended up just sitting around with the adults and listening to them talk. That's all I do now, but the difference is that I understand all of the hilarious things they are saying and I can actually contribute to the fun. It is great and I get to do all the grownup things (play games) that I wasn't allowed to in my earlier years. The adults are all really nice and they do the age cut-off for fun activities at 20. I am finally making the cut!

tomorrow, i'm doing an acting workshop for some of the kiddies in EGMTC. Landon was going to do it with me, but she is stuck in Loomis (how sad) so i'm gonna hafta fly solo. It'll still be good. I'm excited.

This weekend was the first ever YSA conference for ALL of California. It was fun. There could have been a few things I would have changed, but overall I enjoyed it. Especially the Sunday session. There were a lot of GREAT talks, and I really was able to feel the spirit and get some personal revelation.

I'm excited to head back to Provo on Wednesday. It feels like I've been gone for years, and I miss everyone. I'm super excited to be able to hear Kik speak at her graduation. Her speech is absolutely AMAZING, and I already feel famous cause I am her bestie. I also can't wait to see Cath. I miss you terribly, and It'll be great to just hang with her for a while.

I'm excited for NW, but I'll keep that topic and save it for it's own post, cause I could go on for years.

I just made a new blog called: the roommate blog for me and Katie. It is going to be a video blog, and we have already posted twice. I'm excited, cause it'll be a good way for her and I to just cool off and have fun while we are roommates this upcoming year.

that is all for now.

let's make this thing go viral

Hey everyone!!

I wish I knew just how many people read my blog. Cause that would be cool...BUT...I have just decided that I want to make this video go viral. It is of Noteworthy (the a cappella group I am in) singing 'Listen' from Dreamgirls in Oregon. We love the great state of Oregon and have grown attached. I have decided that if everyone who sees this video...posted it somewhere, or e-mailed it to a couple of their friends, then we could potentially get a few more dedicated fans. is your time. Here is the challenge:

Share this link/video with all of your friends

Then, you will be Noteworthy's best friends forever.
That's a big deal.

I LOVE YOU ALL! - and let me know what you think :)

I have found a new love in life and her name is

Laura Izibor.

I don't really know how to say her last name, but i'm over it. Not important.
What is important is the fact that she sings sweet lullabies to my heart and I absolutely love it.


Go listen and learn.

Let That Be Enough

tomorrow is my birthday. is it sad that i am more looking forward to saturday? it is always weird spending holidays away from family. even tho i have tons of friends here, birthdays just aren't the same without a birthday dinner at grandma's and my family singing happy birthday. 22 isn't a big deal, but i guess i am just beginning the understand that the more birthdays you have, the less they begin to matter.


I wish I had what I needed
To be on my own
'Cause I feel so defeated
And I'm feeling alone

And it all seems so helpless
And I have no plans
I'm a plane in the sunset
With nowhere to land

And all I see
It could never make me happy
And all my sand castles
Spend their time collapsing

Let me know that You hear me
Let me know Your touch
Let me know that You love me
And let that be enough

It's my birthday tomorrow
No one here could know
I was born this Thursday
22 years ago

And I feel stuck
Watching history repeating
Yeah, who am I?
Just a kid who knows he's needy

Let me know that You hear me
Let me know Your touch
Let me know that You love me
And let that be enough

Rock Climbing

So yesterday I went rock climbing for the first time in a LOONG time with Chad and some of his roomates. It was basically awesome except for the fact that right now every time I press down on the keyboard my forearms feel like they are being cut open with a steak knife. OUCH! are some pics of the epic evening:

Putting on the super small/foot binding rock climbing shoes
So good looking and ready to race up the wall...yup. I lost

The "cute picture" : Camille, Evan, Kim, Caleb, Me, Chad--and random couple The "we-are-so-cool-we-know-how-to-rock-climb-picture"

Prophet & Oregon

These pictures are from our trip to Oregon. I can't even begin to describe how much FUN we had. It was seriously like meeting Noteowrthy's twin. The ladies of Divisi were so hilarious and I don't think I could have expected a better weekend. When we were in Oregon we also go the change to hike Multnoma Falls and it was a TON of fun. I'm usually not one who likes to hike a ton....mostly because I am a weakling, but me and Katie toughed it out...kinda and got halfway up the trail before we stopped and had sister bonding time. The first picture up here is one of us singing at EMU (Uof O's Wilk). Basically I want to go back to Oregon and live there. I love green, and it was EVERYWHERE!!

This picture was taken before we sang at a business school gig up in...I don't know...random town in UTAH.This picture is took us like 50 times to take, cause turns out it is really difficult to get three crazy girls to NOT smile all at the same time.

In case you were wondering...yes that is the prophet. Thomas S. Monson. Noteworthy had an AMAZING opportunity to sing How Great Thou Art at a LDS Print Services recognition for him. Before we sang, Me, Katie, Amy, and Cooley got to meet him and shake his hand! I never thought that I would get that opportunity in this lifetime, and I was so amazed at how kind and gentle he was. These pictures are of the whole group right before we wont on to sing. I can't even begin to explain how amazing it ws to be able to sing that song for Him and to see his smile at us from across the room as we praised our Lord through the gift of music.

There's only room for 24 letters


If you could vote 2 letters off the island, which would you choose?

personally I vote "Q" and "K" off the Island.

Q: obviously because you NEVER use it. that's always then the alphabet game stops in the car or you just decide to cheat because there are no quail farms around.

K: easy, anything "K" can do "C" can do better.

Encouragement Eggs

Some of my friends from my freshman ward recetly posted pictures of these eggs that he made. After he made them he hid them all around campus for people to take and enjoy the encouragement that they bring. I really liked the idea and I may or may not spend my afternoon making some of my own.

the one above is a square of TP...HAHA!
