4th of July weekend

It's been so long since I have blogged! Sorry to my 1 follower out there :)

This weekend was the 4th of July and it was a blast! I love the 4th in my small town, nobody does it better! The 4th of July is the 1 holiday where everybody comes back to town. I had a great time with my family. Saturday was the Aurora fireworks, Sunday Kurt cooked Dutch Oven for everybody and we had fireworks with the Rassmussen's then Monday we did the morning games at the park and Ty and I went to the Real Soccer Game to finish the night. Here are some pics from the weekend.. sorry about the quality all I have is my phone..

How you found out about blogger and why you have one

My sisters started getting them and I loved reading all about what they were doing, since I am so far away!! I decided it would be fun to journal my way through life :)

Day 11

Another picture of you and your friends

So this is from high school but I really had some great friends!! This is a picture of the senior girls last football game.. it was a really hard one!! Anyways I still love these girls so much and they changed my life for the better!

Day 10

Songs you listen to when you are happy, sad, bored, hyped or mad

Happy - Recently I like to listen to Katy Perry - Firework... just love that song
Sad - Every Rose has it's thorn.. really random I know but I always listen to it when I am sad.. have for as long as I can remember
Bored- I love hip hop songs when I am cleaning or just bored sitting around the house.. usually puts me in a better mood
Hyped- Pink..
Mad- Depends on what I am mad at.. but I love finding songs that explain exactly how I am feeling.

Day 9

Something you are proud of in the past few days...

I am very proud of myself for making it to work in the middle of a snow storm! I HATE driving in the snow let alone around the people up here in Lehi. For some reason city people just don't drive very nicely in the snow. I stay in the slow lane and out of their way but they still like to drive crazy... anways I made it to work and home all in one day ha :)

Day 8

Short term goals for this month and why

Well I have tried to get back to the gym recently. I feel so weak.. I can't even do a single push up!! ha.. I haven't really ever been big into weights growing up and more recently I have discovered how plain out weak I am. I have been trying to get into the gym more so I can tone up a little bit.

That's about the only goal I have had for the month :)

Day 7

A picture of someone or something that has the biggest impact on you.


Okay, so I realize the sunrise doesn't necessarily represent death but in a way it reminds me of those mornings after death has occurred. You are supposed to put a picture and the Grim Reaper seemed a little to extreme and posting a picture of a dead body is just darn right creepy. So I went with the beautiful sunset ... it reminds me of Heaven and where our loved ones are going.

Death has had such a huge impact on not only me but my entire family. We have lost so many loved ones way too early. I miss them all so much everyday. Death, though has had such a negative impact in losing my uncles and grandparents and cousins but it has changed my life in a positive way (other than those people not being here). My father endured so much pain for those couple years he lost all his brothers but that is when I first recognized the strength my father had. He is so amazing of a man you couldn't even believe. His heart is so big and open and kind and I believe a lot of it is because of what he went through. A lot of people use death as a crutch to blame life's problems on... not by dad. It's a strength for him that he has overcome the deaths of his brothers. He misses them terribly every single day of his life there is no doubt in my mind about that. But he continues to live his life for God, when most people would turn away. He continues to be the amazing dad that I have always known and the great person that he is even though he has struggled with so much.

I miss my grandpa so much each day, I will randomly break into tears just thinking about all the things I have missed with him that some others got to see. I occasionally run into people that knew Principal Barton and have nothing but the greatest things to say about him. I loved him so much but I was only 12 when he died. I wish I knew him as me being an adult so I could have had some of his words of wisdom. The man was a genius!!

Long story short ( sorry for the rambling) death has probably been the thing that has had the biggest impact on my life.

Day 6

You're favorite Super Hero and why...

Well Superman of course... I don't necessarily know why but of all the Superheroes he has always been my favorite. Truthfully there are only 3 actual superheroes in this world Batman, Superman and Spiderman.. the rest are just imposters. I like Batman but he doesn't really have any powers... Spiderman .. well he just isn't as cool. Then Superman he can fly and is super strong and was quite dashing if I do say so myself haha...

Day 5

A picture of somewhere you have been...

The Sacred Grove

This place is absolutely amazing. It's crazy to think about what happened there. As I was walking through I just kept wondering was it right there.. maybe there.. it all is so beautiful and peaceful and breathtaking. I have never been so close to my Heavenly Father as I was the night I went there.

Day 4

A habit you wish you didn't have...

Biting my nails! I am absoultely ridiculous when it comes to biting my nails. I even have fake ones on and have a hard time not biting those off. I have been able to have fake nails for quite a while now which has helped but every once in a while I still bite one off ha..
