This blog is getting hard for me. I love it, but it's hard.
Maybe I'll keep posting. Maybe not. In the meantime... I started a new blog!

It's still a working progress, but join us there if you like! Hopefully it will be more successful this blog is turning out to be.

A new post....WHHAAAT??

Man, there has been some serious neglect up in here. Sorry about that.

Well peeps, life is awesome right now. For serious. Today I had one of those feel sorry for yourself days. You know the kind, I read a sappy love story and then cried myself into a peaceful nap. It was pathetic, really. But it kinda felt good. Because then I went to class and talked with two of my most wonderful friends, walked home in the cool breeze and even crunched some leaves. I came home and made some delicious soup and when Drew came home, he gave me a giant hug and told me everything was ok. I played in a flag football game (we totally won, but I didn't even know) and had a really great time. And then I was doing the dishes and I just thought what a wonderful life I have. I have so many blessings and wonderful things and people in my life, I should never have anything to complain about (although I believe that a good cry is nice and healthy every once in a while).

It's just that I love to be married to the sweetest, most caring, and hilarious best friend in the world. And he's cute, too. I love our tiny apartment and the fun times we have here together. I love school and all of the things I'm learning and all of the people I'm meeting. I love that I get to walk outside so much and that we live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. I love that I get to be with my family so much, they are a great strength to me and truly my best friends. I love Flow, the most addicting game ever... who let me have a smart phone?? But seriously, it's so fun. Get it. I love the atonement and that I can see the many ways that it is helping me right now and every day. I'm grateful that I can be better and that I have guidance and comfort. I love the Gospel and that I am a member of the true church. I have everything I need for peace and happiness and my life truly is good.

So, as a life lesson for me, I'll go ahead and cry sometimes. Cause by golly, it feels good. But at the end of the day I'll remember that God wants me to be happy. That's His plan and He has given me everything I need. I'll count my blessings and know that life is good!

Also, Modern Family, I'm happy about that too. Can I get an amen?

Andrew has been working on a research paper all week and he still has a long way to go...
He works pretty hard but every once in a while he needs a little break.
So, naturally, he just took a second to softly kiss and caress his bicep, and then humbly declared, "I may fail this paper, but at least I'll have big biceps."
Too good.

Sometimes you think you know what adventures you want and then Heavenly Father puts you on a different path and you realize that He knows what adventures will really make you happy.

This is my happiness.

Good thing I had a spare.

There are few things I love more than coming home at night and getting ready for bed with my roommate Kristi. She's sort of like a pet, or a small child. She usually just follows me around the apartment telling me about her day and pointing out how long her arms are and informing me of her favorite desserts. Her favorite desserts are vanilla ice cream, pie and something else that I can't remember. After I told her that my favorite desserts are vanilla ice cream, brownies and popcorn, and after she gave me a lecture about how popcorn isn't a dessert, she told me, matter-of-factly that if we were a Venn diagram, vanilla ice cream would be in the middle.
That's not the story I wanted to tell.
Yesterday we were getting ready for bed when she told me that she had borrowed my sweater that day and that it looked really nice with the skirt she chose to match it with, but that she had sweat a little and tried to clean it but there were some stains in the pits, but she'd keep working on it.
We then went into the bathroom and I started brushing my teeth. Kristi started putting lotion on her face which was funny because she doesn't usually do that, so I figured it was just an excuse to stand in the bathroom with me. Probably about a minute after I started brushing Kristi sort of squealed/moaned (a noise she makes frequently when she's uncomfortable or concerned) and said, "I should tell you something but it's sort of terrible."
"Wew come on Kwisti, you can tew me" (that's my brushing my teeth voice).
"Ok, this morning I started brushing my teeth and I noticed it felt different....I looked down and realized I had grabbed your toothbrush...they're both green."
You may now picture me promptly dropping my toothbrush and all the contents of my mouth into the sink.
At least it only took her a minute of brushing to tell me that.
