"sissy came home"

easter was just about as perfect as these three humans are! i came home friday night late, and woke up to these faces in my room.

Gus: "we put a chair in the middle of us so you can sit there!"
Blake: "yeah, come color easters eggs wis meee miss!"

i think you can guess what i did! how do you say no to that? --- seeing my family was a perfect way to end an emotional and overwhelming week, and start finals week off with a GET ME HOME AGAIN attitude!

well y'all two more weeks of school! we can do it!!
ahhh, who am i kidding... i'm doing both blocks of summer school. 
see you in the halls!

cloud nine

this year has been quite the roller coaster. a lot of ups and a lot of downs. yet this past weekend really made everything worth it! i can now say that i am a NATIONAL CHAMPION!

even though this will be my last year on the dance team i wouldn't trade the last three years for anything in this world! i have learn to become my own person. someone who can follow her heart and know what i want. someone who has become stronger, more loving, a better dancer, a better student, one who loves her school, and someone who will forever be part of a sisterhood! as i transition into a new year and a very new section of my life i will always love my girls and always remember the most amazing three years of my life!

here's to the end of volleyball games, basketball games, appearances, early saturday morning practices, bootcamps, nationals, and being a uvu dancer! it has been an honor!

ANNDDDD.... here's to a new year of my life being UVU's Alumni Relations Director! i am sooooo excited to start and i can't wait to learn more and more!

general conf(id/er)ence

"How much of life do we miss by waiting to see the rainbow before thanking God that there is rain?"

-  President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
April 6, 2014 - General Conference

There truly is nothing like General Conference! How lucky are we to be able to hear the words of our God and Prophets in our home! Every word spoken gives me strength and confidence that I am doing everything I possibly can. That the way I have chosen to live and continue to to live IS the right choice for me. 
How lucky I am. How grateful I am. How blessed I am.

Happy Sunday my sweets!
May God be with you.

+interviewing for a new job
+interviewing for student alumni
+this friday i am doing all of my homework
+CONFERENCE yippeeeee
+only a few more practices for dance
+crossing my fingers for straight A's
+both block of summer school

craft night

so around here at apartment #216, friday nights seem to get pretty boring. lex and i were sitting around trying to think of something to do, anything! we just couldn't seem to figure anything out. i pulled pinterest up just for something to do and had a thought... CRAFT NIGHT! lex and i love our random craft nights and one hadn't happened in quite some time so we jumped in the car and headed to walmart. we ended up buying some white mugs and sharpie markers... you guessed it! bake at 420 for 20 minutes and......

not gonna lie, i'm pretty flippin' proud of how they turned out!
go give it a try! it's actually really fun, and kinda therapeutic!
hugs & kisses lovers!
