Oh the things you do at work

I found these gems in some of our old family picture albums the other day while helping my mom clean out the attic. I had to share. So many good memories... ;)

Cousin Jeong with Uncle Frank and baby Li. They have a close relationship.

We told her she'd make a beautiful leg model one day.

They make a lovely couple.

The Color Code

One day at work, I took a color-code personality test. If you want to take it, go to

These were my results...

Basic Analysis
Congratulations, you are a yellow.
yellow: 47.32%
blue: ??? %
white: ??? %
red: ??? %
Yellows (Motive: Fun)
yellows are motivated by Fun. They are inviting and embrace life as a party that they're hosting. They love playful interaction and can be extremely sociable. They are highly persuasive and seek instant gratification. yellows need to be adored and praised. While yellows are carefree, they are sensitive and highly alert to others' agendas to control them. yellows typically carry within themselves the gift of a good heart

Here's a basic breakdown of all the different personality types (according to me):

Fun, social, want instant gratification

Red: Leader, Wants control and power, can be very opinionated

Blue: Emotional, sensitive, typically very sweet and caring of others feelings

White: Peace-makers, Do not like conflict, sometimes can be secretly manipulative

Green: Sometimes jealous, typically shorter in stature and are usually known for being "gold diggers"

Okay, so If you believed me on the green one, don't. I made that up...But what color type personality are you?

My Apologies

It's time to be happy and it's time to learn to enjoy and be grateful for the things in my life.

I feel bad for having such a negative outlook on things lately.

I feel bad for being rude to my family members and complaining about not being in Idaho this summer.

The Lord wants me here in Utah this summer for a reason, so now it's time to change my attitude.

I feel bad for being so inconsiderate of my family members feelings.

I hate being negative, it's not in my nature. Time to change my outlook.

Ready, go.

To my family members:
I'm so very, very sorry! Love you all.

So, I just got this swimsuit for summer. copy and paste this link to see it.
(I would wear it with grey or yellow bikini-style bottoms)

My sister Christine just had her baby boy Lincoln! 6 pounds, 4 ounces. I'm SO excited for her and Rock. Don't be jealous, I am now an aunt of NINE

I don't have to work today! It's always kind of fun to have a day off from school or work.

It's supposed to get up to 74 degrees today. Now isn't that perfect. Time for my albino legs to meet the sun.

I need to workout...

All of a sudden I am randomly obsessed with country music. If you would have seen me a year ago, I hated country music. But I swear, living in Idaho did something to me. I love it now (I'm not so much a fan of that twang stuff though). I blame this song for making me such a die hard country fan. She Wouldn't Be Gone by Blake Shelton.
Youtube it. Now.
(The main girl's cowboy boots are so dang cute which makes this music video even better)

I plan on making these this summer. Don't you dare copy me ;)

Summer Goals

Goals are just tiny wishes until you write them down. I just moved back home for the summer and I decided this summer won't be worth anything unless I make some goals and actually accomplish them. I realized that my future is in my hands and I'm the only person who is in control of the way my life is lived. Why not push myself and live my life to the fullest?

Here they are:

1: Work every Monday through Thursday with a positive attitude. Save at least $5,000.

2: Workout 4 days a week. (A nice, golden tan wouldn't hurt either).

3: Date more. Make new friends, but expand my current friendships including family members.

4: Get in shape spiritually. Attend the temple more often.

Wish me luck!

What are you summertime goals?
