Basement Bed/Bath

When Rachel comes into town, we always feel the need to redecorate/revamp some different room in the house. This time we decided to tackle to basement guest bedroom/bathroom. Please excuse the crappy phone pictures...but it will have to do for now. It's amazing what a little bit of paint and throwing things away can do. It was so fun. We could basically have our own TV show.

(Sorry. I'm not smart enough to move the pictures around and flip them the right way...)

break it down.

Summer. Who couldn't love it?

3 days until the first rodeo of summer.

1 week until I see my best friends again.

4.5 weeks until I am in paradise eating weiners and waterskiing all day with my favorite people.

8 weeks until my best friend and I reunite.

9 weeks until another best friend gets married to her man in the SLC temple.

10 weeks until I'm back in Rexburg for school.

The future holds fun things, and I am so excited.

Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day! 
Just like everyone else and their dog, I'm going to brag about my mom. She is such a wonderful lady. Words can't describe how much I adore her. She puts up with all of us and our constant demands and complaints, cooks, cleans, cheers, laughs, supports and does everything for me and my siblings under the sun. She's the best woman in the world. Not only is she classy, beautiful and amazing but she is one witty and smart gal. I hope to someday be as amazing as her. I love you Mom!

Trust In the Lord.

About a month ago, I got engaged to one great guy.
The wedding plans commenced, and we were in a whirlwind of wedding planning and figuring out our future together.
A couple days ago, it was decided that we should not get married, so our engagement got called off.
Simply put, we both realized that the spirit was telling us that we weren't meant for each other. I wasn't the girl for him and he wasn't the man for me. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make in my life (so far).

I still care and think so highly of Taylor. He is an exceptional man and he will make some other girl happy one day in the future. But for now, it's back to being single and back to starting over for the both of us.

Sure, it will be weird at first and I know the rumors will fly... Which is the reason for this blog post. What happened between Taylor and I is between Taylor and I.

But just know, getting married, for the both of us, was not what the Lord had in store for either of us at this time.
I hold so much respect for Taylor and wish him the best of luck in his life.
All we can do is Trust In The Lord and know that He has better things in store.

A girl's best friend

I don't know why I'm not in bed right now because I have to give a Relief Society lesson early tomorrow morning, but for some reason I can't stop thinking about these new pair of wedges I got at Target.
I'm in love.
You best believe I'm sporting them at church tomorrow

What To DO?

Ever since I've been up here at school (4 semesters) I have been a communications major with my emphasis in Public Relations. I thought that was always a good major until this semester. Now I have no idea what I'm doing and I don't know if that's the way I want to go anymore! What to do?! Decisions, decisions...

I realized I'm not one to accept change very readily.
This is not good considering I have change in my life every 3 months when a new semester happens. It was so strange coming back to Rexburg and not having my old roommates, and friends there. I was holding on to the memories and good times from Fall Semester.
I sat in my car and cried for an hour. I'm such a baby!
I realized today that I need to change my attitude. I need to be one who accepts change.
