Day 5 - a picture of somewhere you've been to

I haven't been to a whole lot of places, but these are some of my favorites.....

New York - April 2008
I went my senior year for Spring Break with the music kids from my school. Since my Student Council Advisor was the dance teacher she let me and some other friends go! It was so much fun and I want to go back so bad. We saw 3 broadway shows, and went to some off broadway stuff as well.

Arizona - October 2009

I went on a road trip with some girls in my sorority and our friend Damian. We had so much fun and we got to watch our team play Northern Arizona. This is also the trip I met John McCain on :D

Indiana - July 2009

I went to a place called ELI one summer which was held in Indiana. It is a Leadership Retreat for girls in Alpha Phi. I applied and actually got in! I had so much fun and learned a lot more about my sorority. I am still close with the girls I met there.

California - March 2009

This was my first Spring Break in College and we had so much fun! My friend Lainey lives in San Diego so we went and spent the week touring Southern California. We had so much fun and it is one of my favorite memories.

oops... day 2,3, and 4!

Day 2 - the meaning behind your blog name
It's my name! I have been blogging since I was 18 and it has always been about what is going on in my life, I wanted the name to
reflect that.

Day 3 - a picture of you and your friends
These are some of my best friends. I don't know what my life would be like without them!

Day 4 - a habit that you wish you didn't have
I give in too easy. If someone wants to go out to lunch but I say no and then they beg I quickly change my mind. It works when people want me to pick up their shift at wingers as well. :D

Alpha Phi elections are tonight and I am super scared! Last year I ran for President and didn't get it, and even though I was sad at the time I very quickly realized that I was not ready for that position at all. I feel the past year has prepared me for this and even though I wasn't slated for president, I still am going to try for it. I was however slated for Marketing and that position would be just as fun for me! Wish me luck! I will let you know how it goes!!
I have always looked up to the Presidents of Alpha Phi, here are some picture of me with them!
Me and Timian, our current President.

Me and my sister Natalie :D

Rachelle, Heather and Lisa are all past presidents.

Me and Raquel

Gay Marriage

“The greatest fear I have is that the people of this Church will accept what we say as the will of the Lord without first praying about it and getting the witness within their own hearts that what we say is the word of the Lord.” - Brigham Young

So many people have been talking about what Boyd K Packer said at conference on Sunday. Because I am mormon and also live with two gay guys (no they aren't dating, we are all friends) I have been asked how I feel. Honestly I don't know. I have always known the stance the church took on gay marriage, but I believe that the mormon church doesn't force you to do anything. They put guidelines in front of you and it's up to you to obey. Of course you won't get the same blessings that others get when they obey, but you get the consequences of the choices you make. That's how I felt about this, the church has never really told me what to do or believe until yesterday and now I am kind of confused.
One thing that makes me mad is when people who aren't LDS try to talk to me about the church and say how things are 'stupid' when they don't understand. Lately it bugs me when people who are LDS talk about how being gay is wrong when they probably have never met or talked to a gay man or women in their life. If you know nothing about you, you should learn and then form your opinion.
I started looking stuff up online about it and I found a group called Mormons For Marriage. It is a group of Mormon People who are against Proposition 8. They had a lot of good quotes from prophets like the one I had in the beginning. Others include:

“With all their inspiration and greatness, prophets are yet mortal men with imperfections common to mankind in general. They have their opinions and prejudices and are left to work out their own problems without inspiration in many instances.” - Bruce R. McConkie

They also have others that talk about equal rights:

  • Joseph Smith declared in a statement published in the June 1, 1842 issue of the Times and Seasons (vol. 3, no. 15, p. 808) that he and other members of the First Presidency were “friends of equal rights and privileges to all men.”
  • President John Taylor said, “When the people shall have torn to shreds the Constitution of the United States the Elders of Israel will be found holding it up to the nations of the earth and proclaiming liberty and equal rights to all men”. (Journal of Discourses, 21:8)
  • Hugh B. Brown of the First Presidency said in October 1963 General Conference, “We believe that all men are the children of the same God, and that it is a moral evil for any person or group of persons to deny any human being the right to gainful employment, to full educational opportunity, and to every privilege of citizenship….We call upon all men, everywhere, both within and outside the Church, to commit themselves to the establishment of full civil equality for all of God’s children.”

This confuses me even more! I think all I can do right now is do what Brigham Young said and pray about it. I encourage everyone else to do the same.


9. Eating at Zupas
8. My mom gave me toilet paper, Band-Aids, and socks.
7. Caught up on sleep.
6. Not going to church because of conference :)
4. Taking my dog for walks.
3. Spending time with my Sister.
2. Going wedding dress shopping with Jacey.
1. Hanging out with my nephew.

Life has been somewhat like a roller coaster these past couple of weeks. One day I am so happy and the next day things just don't seem to be going my way.

School started and I am having so much fun. I love being part of a great organization like Alpha Phi. I also love being the Sigma Chi Sweetheart. I think every girl should get the opportunity to be respected by these wonderful guys I get to spend almost every day with, they make me laugh and they are some of my best friends.

Living with guys is weird. I love Andrew and Eric, but I miss having girls around. Sometimes you just need a girl (preferably a sister - real or alpha phi) to talk to. Guys, even gay guys don't understand girl thoughts.

Rush week was crazy. It was all very much worth it, we have 48 amazing Alpha Phis and 15 amazing Sigma Chis. I couldn't be happier.

I got to spend the weekend with my family! Natalie had a baby 2 months ago and he is my best friend. I wish I could spend every day with him. AND Nathan is getting married! Her name is Nicole and I lover her. She is so cute and I think her and my brother are perfect for each other. The wedding is October 29th and I can't wait. Sad thing about spending the weekend at home is that I don't get to do it for another 3 weeks!

I started a Sigma Chi Newsletter that I send out to all the Members. It's awesome, and I have had nothing but positive feedback with it. I love getting others excited about Sigma Chi and parents are some of the most important people.

Work is BLAH! I really don't enjoy working at Wingers anymore, but I can't afford to quit, especially when no where else is hiring. If it weren't for the people I work with I would be out of there so fast.

Finally, It's starting to get cold. I'm scared.

The sad story of Rascal

Everyone has been asking me what happened to Rascal, so I am finally writing down the story!!

(sorry if i misspelled something, or my grammar is weird, this was a long blog and I am tired!!)

When I got back from church on Sunday I was in my room about to take a nap. Right when I was ready to fall asleep I heard my dad come running inside saying "Rascals dead Rascals dead!" I ran outside as fast as I could (without changing my skirt, or grabbing shoes) At first I thought he was ran over by a car, but then I saw the blood dripping from my dads hand and knew something else had happened. I heard dogs barking down the street and took off running. As I got closer I saw Rascals leash on the ground and then looked over and saw Rascal being torn apart by three other dogs.
Apparently my Dad was walking Rascal and he got too close to the fence and the other dogs grabbed Rascal by the neck and pulled him through the fence and bit my dads hand in the process.

Without really knowing what to do I started screaming and yelling and shaking the fence as hard as I could. The dogs were mean and vicious and I was scared out of my mind. This whole time I already thought Rascal was dead, he was rigid and bloody and I couldn't tell if he was still alive. Finally I did the only thing I could think of and I jumped over the fence. I found something on the ground and threw it at one of the dogs. The smaller dog and one of the big ones backed off, the biggest of the three stood over my dog and stared me down. I stared back and finally said "get back" and the dog backed off. Not until I picked up Rascal did I realize he was still alive. I screamed for my mom and she came around the corner and I handed Rascal to her. We got to my house, checked on my dad and got in the car to take Rascal to the Animal Hospital.

After driving 90 on the freeway and flipping at least 2 people off we made it there and ran Rascal inside. At first they didn't really know if he was going to make it, they said they couldn't tell until they took x-rays to see if the bites have punctured or bruised any major organs. Amazingly enough, nothing was seriously injured. The Vet was worried about a couple of things so Rascal stayed the night to get stitched up and to be monitored. The next morning me and my mom went and picked him up, the Vet said everything looked normal and that he was stable. The one thing she said was that he needed to Pee sometime before 4, if not we would have to bring him back.

Around 4 my parents took rascal back in because he hadn't gone to the bathroom yet. They checked everything out and told us that it still looked okay and to wait overnight to see if there was any change. Sadly, I had to go back to Cedar that night so I had to say goodbye and just hope he would get better.

So far things are looking so much better! He even pooped today (kinda gross, but thats a good sign) As for the mean horrible dogs... The one that bit my dad is Quarantined for ten days, after that he is let out and still has 2 more chances until he is put down. That is, if he hasn't done it before. The other two are basically let off the hook. When the police approached the owners about the situation they both said they weren't liable for what had happened and they aren't going to pay any for about the $2000 vet bill my parents now have. I'm pretty sure my parents are planning on suing, but we don't know how strong our case it yet.

I should mention that my dad is okay. He had eight stitches in his finger and they bandaged up his other arm that was scratched by the fence, everything else is fine. My dads best friend is Rascal, so if anything happens to him my dad will be devastated. Cute little side note... When my dad was in the hospital for over a month Rascal for the first couple days was so sad. He would sit by the window and wait and my mom said he wasn't eating really good the whole time.

Rascal is doing better and I just hope he gets better fast because if you have ever met him he is the happiest dog in the whole world. I decided if something happens to him I'm going to get his paw print tattooed on my somewhere (okay, maybe not, but how cute would that be?!)

A couple things I found out doing some research on the Utah Laws regarding animals:

If I get the dogs that did that to Rascal to chase me I can kill them.

Utah Code Title 18 Chapter 1 says: Every person owning or keeping a dog shall be liable in damages for injury committed by such dog, and it shall not be necessary in any action brought therefor to allege or prove that such dog was of a vicious or mischievous disposition or that the owner or keeper thereof knew that it was vicious or mischievous; but neither the state nor any county, city, or town in the state nor any peace officer employed by any of them shall be liable in damages for injury committed by a dog when: (1) The dog has been trained to assist in law enforcement, and (2) the injury occurs while the dog is reasonably and carefully being used in the apprehension, arrest, or location of a suspected offender or in maintaining or controlling the public order.

(sorry if i misspelled something, or my grammar is weird, this was a long blog and I am tired!!)

Movie Night!

I just barely finished watching Eclipse!! It was such an amazing movie. I have to admit I HATED Twilight and then New Moon did get a little better... but this one was soooo good!! I recommend everyone to go see it! One of the best parts was that I got to see it with all my Wingers girls. I love them all and we all had so much fun eating junk food and talking for 3 hours before the movie started! (pictures to come) Even though I loved Eclipse I loved the new Harry Potter trailer even more!! I almost cried. November will be a good month!

Movie Night

Its been a long time.

I always slack on blogging. SORRY! I actually did blog like a week ago, but right after I did I erased it. It was mostly a bunch of stuff on how Michael is bugging me and making my life really difficult, but those problems are solving themselves these days.

So much has been going on I don't even know where to begin. Summer in Cedar is not as much fun as I thought it would be. I work most of the time, and the other time I am hanging out with the same six people. Don't get me wrong I love hanging out with "the boys". But because me and Michael broke up it's hard to come over and hang out when he is there giving me attitude and trying to fight me on everything I say. (but like I said, I won't have to deal with that much longer)

Things between me and Michael have been getting better. About once a week we get in a big fight again and have to 'talk' to get it out. Last night for example we apparently were yelling so loud at each other the cops were called and ended up busting the party we were at. Two of my friends got under age drinking tickets (but that is another story). Anyway, I hope that's the last time we fight, but knowing how stubborn we both are it won't be.

I almost moved home. I was so sick of being in Cedar and doing the same stupid thing every night that I was ready to talk to Ina and move home for the whole month of July. Bryant made me realize that even if I did leave my problems would just be waiting for me when I got back home. Plus, Wingers in Cedar gets really busy in summer and I would hate to pass up all the money.

USA lost today and it was really upsetting. I watched all their World Cup Games and I really wanted them to make it farther then they did. Oh well, we have 2014 to look forward to. A bunch of us want to go to Brazil for the World Cup... we will see if that happens, but hey, Ill be 24 probably not married and be making a lot of money. So maybe I will go do that.

Finally, I'm going to San Diego for the 4th of July. I am so excited and I can't wait for friday so i can leave Utah for a little bit and clear my head!

i went to the lake again yesterday, i love summer!!

Friday, May 14, 2010

Oh no!

Me and my 'littles' and 'grand-little' at formal. They are beautiful, my family is so cool

Me and my boyfriend Michael

My boys that came to Alpha Phi Formal. They are all amazing, I am so happy I get to represent them!

Ha, I was cleaning up the center pieces and I thought it would be funny because Bri only had one rose :D

Some of us with our new Bordeaux Beau Grady!

Me Roz and Sarah on our camping trip before finals.

Sand Hallow!!

Some of the Alpha Phis at Garden House for lunch.

I haven't blogged in forever. I used to be so good at updating my blog, lately I have been a really big slacker. Well, so much has happened!! Where do I even start?

In Alpha Phi I hold the position of Social Chair. In Spring I am in charge of Sisterhood Retreat and Formal. This year they were held back to back. Sisterhood Retreat went really well! I planned everything way in advance so I wasn't stressed about anything! Formal went the same way, I think the day of I was kind of stressed but nothing too big. Everyone said it went really well, and I am so proud of the outcome, it was beautiful and way fun.

My date for formal was my boyfriend Michael. We have kind of been dating for 7 months, but we have only been "official" for a month. Its been kind of a struggle dating him. He works a lot so we don't really see each other a lot, but other than not ever seeing him things are pretty good. We used to live right next to each other so it was easier for us to hang out, but now that I don't live that close its harder. I am going to be in Lehi for about 3 weeks, so we will see how that works out.

I moved into a new apartment. My old place, with my old roommates was just NOT working out. I decided that even though you are really close with someone, some people are just not meant to live with each other. I don't regret moving into that place, I just regret decided to move in with the people I did. I think I lost a friend because of it, but I gained Eric as a best friend so it was so worth it. Anyway, Me Eric and Sarah now live together in a Condo in the north part of Cedar. I love it! We aren't really home a lot all at the same time, but so far everything has been going really good. In the fall Sarah is moving out and Andrew is moving in! That will be tons of fun as well. We are still looking for a roommate for Spring, so if you know anyone :D Oh, I almost forgot to mention the best part about living here! Our landlord is like the owner of the movie theatre, so when we pay our rent on time we get free movie tickets!!

I am getting my tonsils taken out in like a week! I am so scared, I have heard horror stories of getting your tonsils taken out, and I have to say I am not excited. I am glad I won't be having any more sore throats, but 2 weeks of pain doesn't sound good at all. I have heard that people lose a lot of weight when they get them out because all you eat is like jello and soup. Awesome!! I also have to move home for like 3 weeks so have the surgery and get better. Oh and for Miss Lehi. It is such a good feeling not to be in it, I get to enjoy it with everyone else.

Its Summer!! So far I have been having a blast. I have been to sand hallow twice, hiking around dixie rock, and the best part no homework!! I hate school, I really don't want to go back in the fall but I think I kind of have to.

Finally I am like 2 months away from becoming an Aunt! Natalie is so pregnant and I am so excited to get to spoil a little boy!! I am going to be its favorite Aunt :D

Sigma Chi Formal 2010

Last night was Sigma Chi's Annual White Rose Formal. Eric my best friend and roommate took me and we had so much fun. Really the whole night I was waiting to see if I won Sweetheart or not.
The Sigma Chi Sweetheart is a huge honor. It is given to a girl who they believe represents their values and what they strive to live up to. I felt honored to even be nominated, and now that I am their Sweetheart, well ... honestly I am speechless!
I held myself together until Eric gave me a flower and hugged me, I love him!

The brothers singing the sweetheart song to me after I was announced Sweetheart!

Trying to be all sexy with our roses.

Me Dylan and Monica. I love them!

My date for the night, Eric!

Me Eric and Jess, love them!

Me, Eric and Michael. I don't know why we decided to do this ha ha.

Me and Michael.

Me and some of they boys. I love them!

Clark! I love him. He is one of the sweetest guys you will ever meet.

Possibly my favorite picture of the night, me and all the brothers!

This is my very own Norman Shield that has my name engraved on it!
All the Alpha Phis in attendance!
Sarah! She is one of my best friends!!
Roommates Summer 2010!!
Sarah, Me, and Jess. I love these girls!

I am the happiest and luckiest girl in the world!!! :D

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

oh no!

Once again, it has been way to long since I last posted! So much has happened!!

Me and Clark! He is a Sigma Chi and he is so sweet. Me and him hung out at Sean's together and had a blast!

Me and my two littles at Red Dress. They are beautiful. Aubrey actually took a little this semester so now I'm a grand big, my family is growing!!

It was the 4th Annual Red Dress Gala in Alpha Phi! It was so much fun.

It was my Birthday on the 4th! We celebrated it with a Harry Potter themed party. I can't believe I am already 20 years old!!

We got to play in the snow, it was like the last good snow day in Cedar, it was fun but I am so glad its getting warmer.

Wednesday, January 27, 2010


Mr Poop died! :( its a sad day in Cedar City.

Friday, January 22, 2010


I haven't blogged in FOREVER! I'm sorry, its been a combination of being busy and lazy. Mostly lazy I think! Just some updates, and then I promise I will start blogging about my life!

- I moved into a new house with my best friends! Kaily, Alli, and Eric! I love them so much and we are having so much fun! Oh, and I can't forget Dori, Mr. Poop and the late Gilly.

- Classes are going so good this semester. My earliest class is at 10 AM which makes it so I go to all my classes! Im done with week 3 and I haven't missed once! (thats BIG for me!!)

- My room is so cute! Its the best thing about the new house!! I got a new bed and everything for Christmas and I put up all my pictures, got some cute curtains. I will take pictures and upload them next time!

- I still love Alpha Phi! We just finished Rush Week and we have 7 new girls! I don't know all of them, but I know they are all so cute!! I love seeing Alpha Phi grow!

- I get to plan Formal and Sisterhood Retreat this year for Alpha Phi. Plans are already in motion and I'm getting so excited. Brings me back to high school when I helped plan prom!

- I decided I am going to stay in Cedar over the summer and take summer classes. I can't wait for summer in cedar!! ... cliff diving, camping, caving, San Diego for the 4th!

- I also decided I am not going to go anywhere for Spring Break. I want to go to Lake Powell at the end of April and I think I will get it off if I don't take all of Spring Break off.

-Natalie is pregnant! She is due in July and I am so so excited. I kind of hope its a girl because I think a girl will be easier to spoil. I also realized that when I get married I will have a little child running around, thats like the best part!! I already know I will be its favorite Aunt!! :)

-I think the secret is finally out that Rachael is pregnant. She is giving it up for adoption and I think she found a family. I am so proud of her because she knows she isn't ready to be a mom, so she is giving that opportunity to someone else. She said I can be in the room when she has it... I am so excited!! *Oh I should mention its a boy!*

Anyway, I will blog more in the future I promise!!
